GM events are social events organized by the official game masters. These events allow the community to meet with some of the game's staff giving players the opportunity to discuss any number of topics with them. On occasion, these gatherings are used to relay information to the players on upcoming events and content updates. Also, game masters have been known to pass out various gifts to select participants. While there are many of these kinds of smaller events, most have only been held once. For frequent GM events, please see the following articles.
