First time being a DM 
9th-Jan-2005 09:49 pm
I'm making my debut as a DM. I already got the beginning of the story and some people who are interested in joining the group.
I'm setting it in a Dragonlance campaign and I am really excited :)
Since this is my first time as a dm, what tips do you have for me?
And does anyone have some creative ideas for some adventures, monsters, quests which I can put into my story later on?

x-posted a lot ;)

My first gaming experience in DL was just running the DL Chronicles ubermodule. We ran through the story of the trilogy, and had a fun time when our minotaur started swinging Dragonlord Verminaard on a rope. Certainly not original, but it broke us into the setting. A lot depends on the period that you're setting your game in. if it's post War-of-the-Lance, then you can work on remaining factions of Takhisis' army, like surviving draconians, and whether they plan to remain serving an evil goddess who might not be around to back them up anymore or if they wanna turn good maybe.

Prepare, prepare, prepare. My group had a habit of not going or doing what I expected, so I always had to prepare for just about anything: killing accountants, breaking into shops at night, that sort of thing. I usually had a pile of about 20 NPC's ready to go, fully fleshed out, so if they needed someone to fight or whatever, I'd have some.

Yeah my guys usually kill some innocent trader that really means no harm whatesoever, and could potentially help them in the long run. So I'd have to agree that you must prepare for every possible situation that may occur - inless you're really good at impromptu...
