Scared...

That's no problem, we can help you work out what you need


At core is:
1) the idea and
2) willingness to run one


Then its either a pre-cooked campaign, an open world (thinking on the seat of your pants) or a blend of both

Does it need to be D&D

No (but does not stop you from running D&D)

I am scared I don't know all the rules

So what, neither do most players.
If really worried then do what I done, Run a system no one knows, for me it was Misspent Youth and then Era games - at the time only I knew those rules in the club.


But at core its Role play not rule play, mess up or need to look up a rule - So what, either look it up then, or go with gut and flow of game and look it up after for next time.


If you are willing,
If you have a game idea and if you are brave enough.
Maybe you can become a Game Master

Running your combat in "Theatre of the Mind" a different Roleplaying experience

First off this is not just limited to Dungeons & Dragons, but can be applied to all systems. How To Run Narrative Combat For those used to running RPGs using a gridded battle map and miniatures, running narrative "theatre of the mind" combat can feel both terribly strange and strangely familiar. If we're used to running combat on a 5 foot per square grid, the switch to combat in the theatre of the mind can easily make us feel like something is missing. How can we really know what's going on in combat if we can't see it? The answer lies in the other two pillars of our game—exploration and interaction. We don't set up battle maps and lay out miniatures when our characters have a discussion with an NPC. We likely don't set up a big map and start counting off squares when the characters explore an ancient ruin (although we can!). We don't have visual queues when we're describing how a thief narrowly avoids a poisoned pin while attempting to disarm

How to find a RPG / D&D group near you

Looking for online RPG groups for beginners? Or perhaps you are a veteran player in need of another in-person campaign? Finding a tabletop RPG group near you can be a challenge, but fear not this little ditty should help you find the right RPG group for you. Time and location are the two biggest problems for RPG players looking for a RPG group. How to Find a RPG Group Offline There’s no experience quite like playing RPG in the physical presence of your fellow players. Most beginner and experienced RPG players alike prefer to play offline RPG. It is not as easy to find a group, but it is 100% possible. The Starter’s Set The official D&D Starter Set might be the best way to play D&D for the first time. It includes a set of dice, premade characters, a basic rulebook, and a game that takes players from Level 1 to Level 5. Other RPGs have similar starting rule sets that are great for diving into a RPG. If you have (or can find) a group of friends who would also like to form a beginn
