WHAT IS IT?
Iron GM™ turns adventure role-playing into a competitive sport. At the start of the event, GMs are given three secret story elements on which to base adventures using the 3.5 System Reference Document (SRD). Game Masters shine when they create exciting, original adventures that give their players the game of their lives, regardless of the GM's level of experience. In the end, it's up to the players to decide who will be crowned the Iron GM™.
