I had my first session today which I wish went better... We had 6 of us. DM, Fighter, Wizard, Rogue, Warlord, Paladin. Started at 2:30 P.M. had to teach rules to the noobs first (Paladin and Wizard were newcomers). That took an hour then by the time we finish the first encounter it's 5:00. Our most experienced player is the rogue but his girlfriend was playing the Paladin so he was... distracted... and even with the other two players being good at the game, the new rules threw us off. So while it was fun, the pace was really slow. We got through encounter 2 (another hour) and went out for food where the paladin had to leave and her boyfriend went with her. That ended the session. Two of like the 25 encounters. It was pathetic. They need to learn how their characters work, how to work as a team, how to keep organized, and how to keep things moving. What about the rest of you? In the mean time, I'm gonna run through, polish up my encounter tactics and make the monsters more annoying to handle. That way people might realize that teamwork is essential to the group.
