The Game Master and Me

A Two Player, Tabletop-Roleplaying Podcast. Featuring Craig Burton and James Holdstock

It’s not always easy to find a roleplaying group. You might move to a new town and not know many people, perhaps you have loads of friends that want to play but just can’t all agree on a time or place to get together. Maybe, you have a friend that is interested in role-playing, but is a little nervous about playing with a group of people and wants to have a go and learn the ropes before delving deeper.

Whatever your reasons for being interested in two player tabletop RPG’s, there is no denying that they can be a great and convenient way to play.

The Game Master and Me is a two player tabletop role-playing podcast. Predominantly an actual play with a discussion episode at the end of each game with the hope of both providing some entertainment and helping you to play great two player games if it’s something you don’t have much experience with.

When we started two player roleplaying, it was as a way to try and play in the absence of a group, but we have since found it is an incredibly rewarding, intimate and exciting way to play. Not better, or worse than playing with a group of friends, but different and with it’s own rewards.

We hope you enjoy the podcast.
