Reverb Gamers Day 1

I’m not sure if I’m doing this right but here goes!

What was your first roleplaying experience?

My first roleplaying experience was trying to GM my sister and her Ithorian Bounty Hunter in the old WEG Star Wars game. I had spent the last week reading the rules and prepping an adventure. It went horribly. I had way too much prepped of things I didn’t need and had no idea how to improv where I needed too.

Who introduced you to it?

I came to it having played several of the Final Fantasy games and the old Shadowrun SNES game. All of that told me that there were stories to be told in RPGs but not how to run one. No one told me how to be a good GM but I knew what I liked as a player. I just couldn’t figure out how to make one translate into the other.

How did that introduction shape the gamer you’ve become?

As I went on I have been a player as much if not more than GM just to help me be a better GM. There is nothing I enjoy more than playing games I wrote myself.
