This past summer I was obsessed with returning to RPG. I had only ever been able to experience it in a limited capacity oh so many years ago... wow... was it really like 10 years ago? Being new and being overwhelmed, I had no idea where to start. Do I jump on the DnD bandwagon? If so. . . with which edition? Should I focus on Star Wars or Marvel or Shadowrun or what?

Having become obsessed with the Pathfinder Adventure Card Game, I figured it might be a good place to start, as certain elements would be familiar to me. So I went to the local game shop and purchased a Pathfinder Beginner Box. I needed to start from the beginning. It's how I roll, I guess.

Essentially, I was kind of... pushed into being the GM and told it's the only way to truly learn all the ins and outs of the game. And I started a little online campaign with Ray and our friend Jim. This weekend was my first weekend running an RPG. It started a little rocky (um... there is soooooo much I need to know), but I'm off to a good start. I even created a little adventure based off of a one sentence suggestion in the "create your own" section.

Duh, I'm new and it's going to be a while till I feel experienced enough to be confident enough to move into reaching outside my ray/jim comfort zone with Pathfinder, but it was pretty cool.

So. . . is there some sort of achievement or secret handshake that goes with this new skill? :hotsun:

What type of gamer are you?: RPG
You are the DM. You decide if there is a handshake. :)
