How to be a Dungeon Master

Dungeons & Dragons 5e on Zoom

Dungeons & Dragons 5e


About the adventure

In this two-hour session, I will walk you through the process of running your own homebrew campaign, from finding players to designing the world to deciding which tools to use and how to utilize them. I will show you how I set up a game, how I plan for the long term (or short-term, in the case of one-shots), and what I do in-session to provide both new and experienced players with the best-possible experience. Sitting behind the DM screen can be a daunting task, especially if you've never done it before. I can help alleviate the fear of the unknown and give you the ability to not just survive, but shine as the best Dungeon Master your players will ever play with.
