A simple question that can be answered many ways: What was your first session as a GM like?

Neither of my own answers are terribly satisfying — I hope you can do better!

I say “neither” because I got my start as a GM by running very loose storytelling sessions that had very little connection to actual rules, and those don’t really count.

And when I crossed the line — bought books, read them, asked my best friend to give it a shot — and ran my first real session, other than it being a lot of fun (and having a heavy improv element, which I still enjoy), I don’t remember it at all.

How about you?

Alysia and I are in Florida until the 23rd. There’ll be a new post here every day, as always, but I won’t be able to respond to comments or email. See you soon!
