Howdy - Like many of you, I am now inspired to get a campaign going with some buddies. This is the first time DMing, and am looking for some decent (free if possible) map makers that you use. There are many on the web, and wasn't sure if those out there in Nerd Poker-land had any preferences. Also, if you have any tips for a first time DM pass 'em on. My group and I are fairly new to playing (I played 3.5e back when it came out). We're playing 5e, and it definitely seems a lot more streamlined. I have the three core books, dice, an account on Roll20.net, etc... I have the materials, now need the skill. I'm anxious (and a little nervous) because I want it fun - and not awkward & boring. ... It's like wanting to kiss that girl who never really paid any attention to me... And then when we finally have that moment where we could suck face, I end up talking about the comforts of sweatpants and 8th Grade... She then walks away wondering what the hell just happened... I stand there pissing myself... ... I don't want that to happen DMing my campaign. Ya dig? Roll 'em if you got 'em... Thanks!! -NotBettyWhite (Edit: Also told my buddies to listen to this episode: https://soundcloud.com/nerd-poker/going-in-recons-blazing)
So there may be a thread for this already, but I couldn't find it. Mr Sark, how did you become the DM. I have played D&D literally one time, but I'd like to play more and in the event of no one stepping up to DM, I want to be able to do it. So my question is this: What does it take to become a DM? What trials and tribulations do you have for those who want to try? You seem to be really knowledgeable about the whole process and, maybe most importantly, you're FLEXIBLE. You really know how to roll with the punches and still make it fun for most, if not, everyone. How do you do it?
