The GM Style Badges is a very neat expression of many discussions regarding the different Gamesmastering Styles that have evolved over time. The original GM Merit Badges (note: I changed the name to "Style Badges" as it seems to make more sense) were posted on Strange Magic Blog, and the artwork was contributed by someone named Lorc (thank you kindly!). I am posting the full set of badges and their original descriptions here because on Strange Magic the last two sets of new badges are not separated into individual graphics files, and so are not as easily downloaded as the others. I have discerned that there are two basic groups, the Story Aspect and the Mechanical Orientation, so I have separated them into those two groups. Also note that some GM Style Badges go better together than others. And also note that in some cases they can be mutually exclusive. You can use the Badges by downloading them (to do that right click and click 'Save As') and using them in your blog (or elsewhere). The only request I have seen so far is that if you do so, please include Lorc's name somewhere so that he (or she) can get credit for their work. Thanks & Enjoy!
