I started my gaming career with Dungeons and Dragons, 2nd edition, back in 1999, and evolved to 3rd edition shortly after it came out. From there I branched out, gaining a love for Shadowrun and Legend of the Five Rings, as well as reluctantly purchasing the 3.5 books for Dungeons and Dragons.
To my equal parts dismay/everlasting joy, I DM more often that I PC. As a DM, I focus more on role-playing than I do combat, having DM’d more than one session where a die was never rolled, but plenty of drama and conflict resolved all the same. Also, as a DM for Dungeons and Dragons, I would like to add my name to the list of victims to adding the Deck of Many Things to a campaign, wondering “how bad could it be?”
Famous last words for many a DM, to be sure…
