A Gamemaster or Game Master (often abbreviated as GM) is a player in a multiplayer game who acts as organizer, arbitrator, and officiant in rules situations.
Today, gamemaster is usually associated with role-playing games. In a role-playing game the Gamemaster's purpose is to weave the other participants' player character stories together, control the non-player aspects of the game, and create environments in which the players can interact.
Being the GM requires extra commitment and responsibility than simply playing the game. While the basic roles of Game Masters - rules help, moderation, and storytelling - are the same in almost all role-playing games, differing rule sets make the specific duties of the GM unique to that system.
