GM Dictionary: The Dead #3
Welcome to the Game Master’s Dictionary. This is a mini-article series featuring short explanations for words more commonly used in RPGs than normal conversation. Each month will hold a different theme and each weekday will have a different word. Note: these are personal, simple breakdowns and not perfect. Please tell me if I am mistaken and I will work to correct it! For anyone looking for a collected work please check out our Patreon. All patrons get a PDF collected copy each month!
