    Hi guys. I have been playing D&D for about 3 months. I have been DM'ing for 2 of those three months. I am posting this today to share with you a summary of my game and maybe even ask for some feed back on my apparent DM'ing skills (or lack there of).

    First, I will introduce the players: (Please note that my world may[WILL] not be cannon with the D&D world)
