Sorry for all the updates! This particular post is more like how I envision this blog. The others were so different in topic I really thought they merited their own posts. But they were relevant as well, so there they are. Anyway, this is more like session notes for the session we had Sunday. Officially, it was Session 12.
So I'm making use of the group space on the boards. It's a lot of fun for me but it has been a challenge to get the players on board. I know they like the idea, it's just a matter of them taking time out of their day to sign up for another message board and follow another set of digital updates.
So, I'm using this blog to share thoughts and observations I'm having as a new DM running a group of players. We just finished a session Sunday so here I am.
I have to say that I love this game and will do just about anything to get a game in. That includes dealing with players. I consider everyone at my table friends and maybe that's my problem. The logistics are killing me. First of all: food. Everyone has their opinions about food. I could care less. I think that creates tension as I run the games at my house.
It might be fun to make a blog about being a new(ish) DM. Maybe I can make a post after each session to document how things went, what the challenges were and how I felt about the session/adventure.
So I am currently running a homebrew campaign set in a city called Sadent. I've always been a "writer" so I wanted to do homebrew and not start with the easier mods. That's not to say I won't steal something I like, but the appeal to me in DMing is creating this world from nothing and helping to shape the stories within it.
