I have been playing D&D for around a year now and I absolutely love it! My husband has been the DM the entire time that I have played and is amazing at it. Just about a month ago he decided that it was his turn to play and my turn to DM. He got a short pre-done adventure that I read for him and my four year old son. Before that night I never thought I would enjoy being the DM. For some reason I had it in my head that being the DM would be boring, being a player who gets to fling spells around and take out the bad guys seemed pretty hard to beat. By the time the adventure was over I was having such a great time I wanted to keep going.
This weekend I get my wish! I bought another adventure module (I’m not brave enough to make up my own world just yet) and have started to study it carefully. It’s a @goodmangames “Dungeon Crawl Classic – The Forgotten Portal” and there are quite a bit of names in it I’d rather note even attempt to pronounce, lol. This time I will be the DM not only for my husband but for a couple of friends of ours too. The extra people make me a little nervous seeing as how am I usually a very shy individual but I am also very excited. If all goes well I might be the new co-dungeon master for our regular weekly game. My husband has been trying to get someone to share the dungeon mastering with him for a while now. He loves being the DM but wants to be able to play too. Hopefully this will work out for everyone. Wish me luck!
