Just got done with party and my first time ever being DM!!!

Rate this Entry
My story was well written and I had some really good parts, but I am not a good DM. I can write the adventures but when it comes down to actually being in control of the dungeon, my lack of full knowledge of all the rules really shows and I ended up giving out information and I made the mistake of not making a key system for the final boss and they ended up attacking him first. I made some mistakes but it worked out b/c without those and me dumbing down the boss, they woulda been toast. I had to wing the rest of the story because it changed after they killed the boss and got past my moral dilema I set out for them. So we started at around 1 or 2 and ended at 5 in the morning after a mandatory donut stop

    If I'm remembering the name correctly, you've posted under Kyle's thread about being a 1st time DM, right?

    Some of us mentioned that it takes time as a DM, and as a player, to feel comfortable with everything. Mistakes are bound to happen, even sometimes when you've been playing for a while. But as long as you all had fun, that's the bottom line!

    The big question though is "Did you and your players have a good time?"

    Its always fun to start your first game. And its okay to be wrong...just keep in mind that if you make a rules choice, keep the same rule throughout the session. Players won't mind, if its the same for them as for the monsters ( as long as no one dies ). Then after you follow up with it, make corrections, and give extra rewards to make up any greivous errors. Your players will appreciate it more, and come to enjoy the fact that you keep your game moving.

    Remember... Its Role-Playing... NOT 'Rule'-Playing

    Don't worry about how much you did wrong,remember what you did right,because as long as your players have fun,you did it right.I am also a first time DM but I have a great friend who has been DMing for a veary long time and he helps me out,an easy way to make a great game is to talk to your players and see what they want out of the DM,thats how I do it and my players are happy and love to play my game.
