April 2014 Blog Carnival: The Game Master’s Binder

rpgblogcarnivallogoFor some, creating it was a rite of passage.

For others, it was a project that was never completed.

For all, it was something we poured our lifeblood into creating and held it as a prized possession.

The Game Master’s Binder

Many of us started our GM career simply using a few sheets of paper or index cards stuffed inside the front cover of our gaming book. The progression continued through paper clipped pages, note cards with binder clips, folders and then finally to a binder where pages were punched and inserted between dividers to keep it all nice and tidy.

Then, the computer age hit and it all changed.

For this month’s RPG’s Bloggers’ Carnival we’re taking a look at this prized possession and asking you to share what yours is. As usual to participate you simply need to write a post on your blog about your GM binder – it can be your current one, a past one you remember all to well, or what you’re planning to use in the future. Once you written it up be sure to link to this post and drop a note in the comments so I can be sure to collect them all up for a final roundup on the posts.

So the question I put to you now is what does does your GM Binder look like? Is it still a three-ring binder? Is it a tablet? A laptop? Your smartphone?

What does it look like on the inside? What do you keep in it? How do you organize it?

If you don’t have a blog feel free to share in the comments about your binder, or jump over to the of Dice and Dragons facebook or Google+ page and share your thoughts on the entry there.

Now, go on and post something, this isn’t an April Fool’s Joke (seriously, it isn’t).

May your dice roll well.

The Carnival has moved on but be sure to check out this carnival’s wrap-up post.
