Role-Playing Games

Game Masters & Players

How many active players do we have here in the DreamLyrics community? If you look on the main message page, you'll see the name of our newest member and a number indicating how many members. That number is a trifle misleading since it includes a few test members, used by our sysops and developers as they test out various enhancements.


This list shows our game masters and how many games they moderate. Please note that there are some games that have two people assigned as game masters, yet this chart does not indicate a specific GM’s activity for a given month when shared with another as some games might have the second GM acting as a player too.
