    "GM" Name in Chat Window?

    Hello friends!

    I am returning to FG after one year of not playing (and an unintentional SSD wipe ). When hosting a 5E campaign, I much prefer my chat name to appear as "DM" instead of "GM". I thought I had done that successfully before but cannot find a forum post on it now, nor did my attempts work.

    So, my question: can I set my chat name to be "DM" instead of "GM"?

    What I have done so far: I created a new campaign, made my username "DM". Also downloaded the "GMicon" extension to give a cool picture for DM, though I don't think that affects the chat name itself. Searched several angles online/in forums without finding what I thought I found before.

    Can this be done, so that when I type to players, it says "DM" instead of "GM in the chat window? Thanks! -V

    Great, thank you! That solved it. For anyone else who reads this, the short answer is type "/gmid DM" into the chat window. If you're newer like me, I recommend reviewing the guide he linked. Thanks again, Trenloe!
