This is a community submitted press release.

We get it. Romance is difficult to GM.

Whether you’re a hobbyist or professional GM, you may have received a request to roleplay some romance at your table. Maybe you weren’t comfortable with it because you didn’t want to come across as “weird” or felt as though you couldn’t match someone’s expectations. Short of hiring Regé-Jean Page to cover for you, we have the next best thing.

Like all skills such as voice acting, setting a horror scene, or rules mastery - guiding romantic scenes as a game master is something that requires practice. If you want to be effective faster? Get yourself a guidebook.

What is How To GM Romance?

A guidebook for making romance in tabletop games accessible, fun, and easy for everyone at the table. A roleplaying game supplement that simplifies romance for game masters with actionable advice and useful tools. This book is for you whether you’re brand new to romantic storytelling or seeking more inspiration to run in any system, campaign, or game. This book is system-less and will work with D&D, Pathfinder, any PBTA - any game at all.

We provide a structured way to approach romance to help a GM run a comfortable, safe, and satisfying game with these elements.
