Game Master Mode
Tell your stories, your way
Divinity: Original Sin 2’s Game Master Mode bridges the gap between the improvisation of a tabletop role-playing session and the immersion of a computer RPG. Easy to use, powerful and flexible. We’ve created a system that has one goal in mind; empower the Game Master so that they can tell great stories and lead up to four players through a world of their own imagination.
Flexibility can be the hallmark of a great game master and a limitation on most video games. With this tool, you can adapt on the fly and make your world truly reactive. Do your players want to burn down an NPC’s home? Make a pact with, rather than kill the demonic boss? Perhaps they want to parlay with the pack of rabid wolves using pet pal? Even if you haven’t planned for it, adapt quickly and efficiently and give them a story that feels authentically reactive.
Whether you are a newcomer to tabletop roleplaying or an experienced game master, the mode is easy to pick up and intuitive to use. Use one of our pre-built campaigns to jump straight into the action or create your own. With the help of over 100 pre-made maps, the powerful Vignette System and the Divinity: Original Sin 2’s award winning combat, design and play in stories of your own creation.
