Amazingly useful tools: a Unified GM Bag

Posted by on March 14, 2017

GM BagI have one big travel bag in which I store all my RPG materials (except for books and physical handouts like keys, rings, and pendants, since I have different handouts for different groups). It contains, among other things:

  • Dice
  • Pencils
  • Index cards
  • Counters
  • Blank paper
  • Folded paper minis

Why would you want to do this?

  • You may run for more than one group, now or later.
  • A friend may be curious about tabletop RPGs, and want to play a solo session to see how the game is run.
  • You may have to run a game at somebody else’s house.
  • You need all this stuff for RPGs anyway, so why not keep it in one place?

With a bag that contains all the essentials, you can run any time, anywhere.

Stay tuned for a post that details everything in my GM bag, but you don’t need that to make your own. Go for it!
