Calling all GMs!
« on: June 25, 2018, 07:48:21 AM »
Hi guys and girls!

I’d like to address our budding GMs for a minute. We seem to have a rare issue on The Irate Pirate at the moment – we have more GMs than we have players. IMHO, that’s generally an awesome problem to have – unless you’re an aspiring Gm just itching to unleash your story to a group of starry-eyed players.

You may have noted that we’ve been promoting on Twitter, Facebook, and Reddit; we’ve been increasing those efforts recently in a real push to drive traffic to the site. But we’re limited in how frequently we can post to certain social media – especially Reddit.
That’s where we’d like to ask for your help, dear GMs. If you’re game, make a Reddit account and go to https://www.reddit.com/r/lfg/ - that’s the ‘Looking for game’ subreddit. It’s for all game systems. You can start a new thread there talking about your game here on the site, and provide a link back to The Pirate. They have some rules on how you should format a post – I’ll help you here, but if you have questions once you get to the subreddit they’ll be glad to help you out. Or you can message me or Otter to help you out!

Post format – Your post will have to have a title with a brief explanation of what type of game it is. All of our games are online and Play by Post, so your format will look more or less like this:
[Online][PBP][Game System][Looking for players]
All you really need to do most of the time is plug in the system name and you’re good for the title – 5E, 4E, Sprawl, Fate…

The text of your thread there should be similar to your recruiting post here, but can be abbreviated. Include a link to your ‘Looking for players’ thread on Pirate (This is important! Link to your recruitment thread, not to the Pirate homepage. Linking to our homepage could be viewed as promotion, and might run afoul of their rules.) and they’ll be able to join the site and your game!

We’re working to put more eyes on the site, and appreciate your help in doing the same!


I dream of a better world - one where chickens can cross the road without having their motives questioned!
