Been Gone for a bit....
« on: June 11, 2012, 09:14:18 PM »
Well Ladies and Gentlemen,

I have been gone for awhile traveling here and there, always hearing the serine call of the Citadel, and yet never making it back.  However, my fortunes have changed, and not only has life calmed itself down, but I have found myself in possession of 6! players lives!

In view of this, I think it is safe to say that I will be here much more often and thought it best if I re-introduce myself.

I have almost never played a pen and paper RPG, and before starting my current campaign had only DMed once.  I was, an armchairist, so to speak, and having been moved to a new place in the world, set out to find like-minded folk, with families (has I have kids now), and in doing so, I somehow became the Gamemaster of our small group.  I have had a homebrew world that I have been working on for either a game or a book, and so thrust my poor players into that.  We are 4 sessions in and everyone seems to enjoy our times together.

All this being said, I will be asking questions and sharing thoughts a lot more then I have before...

Triumph of the Dungeon Master!

Ah, how I have come to love that sense of accomplishment and victory that I get when I pull the wool over the eyes of a clever player character. What DM Triumphs have you had?

Some of mine:
1. Finally killing an incredibly powerful, lucky, annoying player's character.
2. Finally achieving a TPK (Total Party Kill)
3. Finally achieving a TPK using only traps
4. Finally working out how to make it so that d**n wizard doesn't steal the spotlight all the d**n time.

At first I saw this as 6 factorial and I was frightened. What could one do with 720 players? And then I realized I had outnerded myself and also became envious.
