Hola! Been lurking for a week or so now and decided it was time to introduce myself to the shield wall. I’ve really been digging into the content of this forum and have found it so inspiring and full of great advice. I’ve jumped around other TTRPG places like this but this is the first time I have really felt compelled to be part of the membership.
Been watching Runehammer for years but it wasn’t until recently that I have decided to take on the GM mantle and run games for my friends. Honestly, I think it was watching his videos that really made me feel like I could do this. I started about 2 years ago and ran a few games here and there but they never stuck. At first I was nervous and anxious and while my games were never perfect (can they ever really be?), we all still had a blast. As time has gone on, i’ve learned more and have more confidence to run the games, teach new players and keep the group having fun. The experience overall has been great and applying what I learn and read about is really helping me to hone my own style as a GM.
I run a small D&D group that can only meet once a month (tonight is session #3!) at my house and i’m considering getting my old highschool group back together for some ICRPG online since we all live in different places now. I never realized how fun it could be running my own games and wish I had done it years sooner.
Thanks for taking the time to read my ramblings and I look forward to contributing any way that I can. I’ll attach some photos from my GM journal as a reward for making it this far! (or maybe that’s a punishment?)
TL;DR This forum is amazing and full of really helpful and inspiring information. Here’s loot in the form of pictures!
