So You Want To Guest Gm

SO! Let's say you are an avid player of this fun and attractive game, and a part of the backbone and pillar of this fair community. And let's say that you, having been on a few runs, would like to do one of your own. Many of you may be thinking "how am I to do this?" "It's probably really hard" "I'm hungry."


Making a guest GM run is not as hard as you might believe. Basically, we just ask that you write up a bit about the plot, structure of the run, estimated time, and any other hazards players will face!

NAME OF RUN The name of your run, obviously.

CONTENT This is the part where you tell us what SCPs or other anomalous things you'll be using, and the general plot outline. What the players will be doing, where they'll be, etc. This should be as helpful to you as it is to the GMs; using it to keep yourself on track is a good idea.

This is a rudimentary run proposal layout which can be edited as anyone sees fit. This is by no means the end all be all of run proposal docs.

Especially difficult enemies, such as bosses or the like, should be statted. Regular enemies are up to your discretion, but be reasonable. (But it's not a bad idea to stat them as well).

"Neat" you might say "but how do submit". Well, I'm glad you asked! It's as simple as going to a GM, and showing them a Pastebin, a Google Doc, or even a SCP Sandbox page with your proposal.

So, I've written my run! What do I do now?
Now you show it to a GM for approval! Poke in the chat that you have a run proposal to show us, and any GM/Admin can approve them. They'll go over the run with you in order to ensure that everything's up to snuff and they'll give you advice on what to shift if anything. Runs featuring sensitive content such as extreme horror or other graphic content may require a GM to confer with the rest of the team but mileage may vary. Your run must also be open to all members of Origins.

I'd like to do a run, but I don't know how!

The best place to start out would be an event/run in the Arena. The Arena is an in-universe tool used for training and is also used OOCly as a sandbox for people to use at their leisure. Runs/events in the Arena have considerably fewer restrictions as all of the events inside the Arena have a more-or-less non-canon tag attached to them. Mechanics for the Arena can be located here

If you have further questions or suggestions, please bring them up in the chat.
