Are you a GM and need advice because you're new? Or just need to step up your game? Either way, Fish Hooks for Being a Better GM has you covered! This article is all about Running a Serious Game & Knowing When Not To.

Roleplaying is a cooperative hobby, and I think a lot of people forget that keyword: cooperative. You are building something all together, both the GM and the players. Sometimes you’ll all want to delve into a deep story and run down the individual threads to see where they go, but sometimes… sometimes you just want to take a break with your friends and do something fun.
