Today, March 4, is GM's Day. GM’s Day is an annual day to show your game master (GM), dungeon master, storyteller, or referee -- in short, the one person necessary to play a tabletop role-playing game -- how much you appreciate them. Publishers and retail outlets across the world now join in GM’s Day, offering discounts, sales, and other cool stuff:
GM’s Day was born on EN World in December 2002. Originally a simple messageboard post by EN World member Spunkrat, the idea quickly gained popularity, championed by Mark Clover of Creative Mountain Games and, of course, EN World itself.
