Hey, I'm Morhuaniel!  I just joined this site when I was browsing for some random ideas for a DM I'm leading.  So, I figured I'd pop in to say hi, "HI!"  LOL!  If y'all ever want to chat, just e-mail me, IM me, or reply to this post.  I'd love to make some new D&D friends.  I'm DMing my first ever D&D game too!  So, so far I've kept my PCs happy, but I would love to share my plots and characters with y'all.  Hope to hear from ya' soon!  Namarië!

You don't have a Zero in the poll, of which I am :D

Welcome, O' Dungeon Master, to the citadel. We have many a fine person here who could most likely help you out.

Oooh, and er, if you have any pie you need to be put in a safe place, You'd best hand it to me. You just cant seem to trust these other citadelians nowadays.

I've been at GMing for a long time. I don't really keep count, but I think that if you've only GMed four times, you should do it more often, because it is strangely empowering to have your friends' very destinies clutched in the palm of your godly GM hand! MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

And I am a man.

Hi there.

So you are a dungeon master huh?

To hold their little lives in the palm of my hand, watching them strive to become more, to endure the suffering, divine, that I have planned for them. I laugh, for I know with a flickof my wrist, I can crush them, unleash a dragon, or a horrible curse, or a bad hair day.

BWA-HA-HA-HA-Ha....hem

Well, you could say that I have been running games for a long time. I have been a DM, GM, and a ST, as well as a SOB, MCP, and RPG...wait, thats not right.

Any-who, welcome.

Well, I think you will find plenty of insperation here, provided you are wise enough to translate non game specific material into system specific material.

Oh yes and if you would like not te be slaughtered when sharing your material, you should also be wise enough to de-systemize your npc's, characters, items and the like.

Most of the time it is not that difficult.

But back to the poll. I am afraid I do not fully understand what you are driving at... do you mean sessions? adventures? campaigns? players?

Currently I run two campaigns, of which one is running for well over a year already. However my players have finished one, oke, two adventures now and they are starting out on a new one.

Hmmm, I think if it is campaigns, I should say that I am currently running campaign two and three.

Yours,

Ylorea

p.s. Ever since when dit gender matter in this kind of thing?

p.s.2 Dear captain, sometimes I do appreciate your pointing out that people should try to use proper english. Now would be a nice moment.

Err... Not quite sure who to correct, Ylorea. Do you mean DungeonMaster? Because the only mistake I can see for her is that she used "LOL", which, on the Internet, is not technically a mistake, just irritating.

Okay, I'm sorry that y'all believe "LOL" to be an irritating word.  I simply use it because it is the easiest way to show that I am amused with something without sounding gay by typing, "Ha ha ha."  As far as the English grammar comment is concerned, I pride myself on my correct use of grammer, unlike many American people.  Yes, I'm human and I make mistakes, but I have never had anyone tell me that my English is bad.  Quite frankly, I believe, Ylorea, that yours is much worse than mine.  I'm not trying to be rude, but I was just very much offended.  And in reply to Michael Jotne Slayer's post, I am nowhere near the equivalent of a true Dungeon Master, I just liked it for a screen name because people would automatically assume that I am into Dungeons & Dragons RPGs.

Ylorea has 3 languages to juggle around, unless I am mistaken, and English isnt her first.

But anywho! Apart from colloquialism (y'all, ya) I see nothing overly wrong with your writing. And don't be offended by things some people may say to you in this site. Sometimes it may be meant jokingly, others it might be constructive critisism.

Oh... AND WHERE IN THE EIGHT LAYERS OF DREYMORE IS MY PIE!?!?!?!?!?!?
