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.

Good going! It gets easier to GM with practise but you always have to think hard to keep the excitement and entertainment levels up. You'll do well, I can feel it. :)

Fun is all that matters. I think you're off to a perfect start. (I've been DMing for 23 years now. Ghod! I'm so old!)

if everybody had fun then it was a success. :) Having fun and wanting to do it again, that's the goal. :)

Ah, well. I think everyone had fun.

And isn't that the most important thing? :)
