folks tend to be very helpful to new DM's...

just remember to use the word 'NO' as often as necessary, and reward what you see as excellent ideas with bonus dice where necessary!

rules lawyers will no doubt help you with basic game mechanics, BUT, they dont know the full situation and what might be affecting those rules. So don't be afraid to overrule folks! when things don't go as expected this is where stuff gets interesting for the players and they have to work HARD! case in point Scott decided that our scout couldn't use his message ability to quietly alert the group to the presence of monsters... with some hilarious results, as we blindly blundered in, having ignored the warning that the rogue thought he'd sent, and tripped the trap, he was currently disarming, before being fallen upon by the nasty monsters...

it worked out well in the end but the roleplaying opportunities as we remonstrated with the rogue were superb!

best of luck

Ha! Sounds fun! Morgan shot shane in the ankle with an arrow for no clear reason, but we rolled with it! I'll make sure I practise my "no" voice before I arrive!

round robin dnd should be happening tonight :)

What games are on tonight? Adam isn’t running his game and the round robin 5e table didn’t happen last week. Numbers may be a bit slim therefore. I’m running a one shot Cthulhu.

Sarge - Sun 7 Aug - 16:44

Sorry, that should be 11th Aug is final week

Sarge - Sun 7 Aug - 16:43

As a reminder, the next rotation starts on 18th Aug, so this Thursday (8th Aug) is the last week of the current rotation

Might have a spare slot for Coriolis next rotation if anyone interested. See the game proposal thread for more and see the Games discussion thread for background info.
