* "Host" in ''{{Ironclaw}}'', ''Jadeclaw'', and other games from Sanguine Productions -- a term that deliberately emphasizes the ''Managerial'' hat in addition to the others. Even if the "Host" isn't inviting the other players into his ''home'', he's inviting them into his ''world''.

* ''[[SeventhSea 7th Sea]]'' simply calls it the Game Master... but in the book Los Vagos (detailing a secret society run by a CaptainErsatz version of {{Franchise/Zorro}} in Castille, Spain's FantasyCounterpartCulture), it's called El Maestro de Juego...which is just Spanish for Game Master. (Said book contains a lot of GratuitousSpanish.)
* [[DragonRaid DragonRaid]] uses the generic-sounding (but not actually very common) "Adventure Master."

* ''TabletopGame/SpiritOfSeventySeven'': The DJ, evoking the old school [[TheSeventies 1970's]] radio DJ's who spun that groovy vinyl.

* As ''ModelUnitedNations'' has been described as {{LARP}}ing in suits, and crisis committees--in which you have constantly-changing topics of discussion--require direction, the equivalent position to Game Master is the "Crisis Staff" (a collective GM of 3-5 members, typically) and the players are "Delegates".

Added DiffLines:

* ''TabletopGame/StuporPowers'' says the Game Master needs a cool title to go with his (Or her) position, and thus gives them the moniker of The Big Mac Daddy. (Even if they're female.)

* ''TabletopGame/HeroQuest'' and ''Descent'' (Fantasy Flight Games): Both board games cast the Dungeon Master as the Heroes' actual antagonist, the former as the BigBad (Zargon or Morcar, depending on where you bought the game), the latter as the Monster of the Week, called the Overlord.

* Since 200+ people are playing at the ''LARP/OtakonLARP'', there’s a staff of GMs, usually with specialization in certain areas, and two Co-Head GMs. There is also a special player category called “Specialist”. They are players that have proven experience and knowledge that allows them to be a little more involved in creating complicated plots with other players, utilizing limited "Manager" and "Referee" roles.
