Thread: Advice/Help for a new DM

    Default Advice/Help for a new DM

    Happy holidays, folks! Prior to joining TTW back in May, I had always been wanting to play D&D with my friends. Only one of us actually had experience playing, however, and he'd always say that he didn't have the time to run a campaign. It was getting to the point that I was gonna say "F**k it, I'LL run the campaign!" until I was told of this lovely site. But now that campaign-running itch is back.

    Despite my time here, I still know very little about D&D. I have an ambitious idea that I reeeeally want to develop, but Lord do I have NO idea how to get it set up, haha. Anyone know of a How to DM 101 guide, or would anyone be willing to mentor me?

    The Tutorials section of the library has some really great DMing advice from various users. I think it would be a good place to start. Also, I’m fairly new to DMing myself, but if you ever need help with anything I can try to give you some advice myself. I’m sure lots of other DMs on the site would be happy to help too!

    Touche, Tiger, thank you so much Rellott for telling us about him! Somehow I missed your message, forgive me for the last response.

    Aww, thank you! Hopefully with the YouTuber Rellott supplied, the campaign won't be a complete disaster and won't disappoint, haha.
