GM Lite

GM-Lite is a balance between traditional Game Mastered games and GMLess games. One player plays with a special facilitator playbook. The facilitator’s playbook has special actions that replicate GM-like actions (see The Playbook example). By default, they narrate scenes, runs NPCs and Adventure, ask leading questions, and make sure everyone gets a chance in the spotlight.

However, everyone is responsible for all aspects of play and collaboration in Grove games. The facilitator should encourage others to narrate scenes, act on behalf of NPCs, and run an adventure when they’re comfortable doing so.

Because of this, the goal is for the facilitator to transition to being just another character in the story as everyone becomes comfortable running Grove games together.
