Well, here we go. Last night, I DMed for the first time. We were supposed to start our campaign on Wednesday, but the group wanted to do a little roleplay and combat, so I humored them.
A lot of it was experimentation for me. Figuring out how to take care of things at a relative speed. Remembering all the little details. And still giving them plot-fu (which I managed to do). I also wasn't too sure I could pick out a random encounter okay for 4 first level players, and I ended up with 1 medium, 2 small and 3 tiny monstrous spiders. I also added in a mysterious benefactor, a random NPC fighter (the plot fu). Part of it was a little too easy (none of the players took damage) but it was a little hard, too (the smaller the spiders, the more insane their AC). So, I'm not really sure how it worked. Ah, well. I think everyone had fun.
