Hello everyone! Zak here. I've been GMing for about 6 straight years now. I got pegged to DM for the group, we've tried a few others but...well I'm the group GM haha! I GM for 2 different groups of friends, both of which were new to D&D when we started. I've only GM'd D&D 5e, honestly no complaints with the system, I am more or less a fan of the direction WOTC is taking "One D&D"
I'm in the good ole Midwest in the USA, you want corn? I got you!
The D12 is my favorite die. I feel it's the blacksheep that hardly gets used, like d20s 3rd wheel...
Anyways, I'm starting both groups in new campaigns running Waterdeep Dragon Heist into the new Spelljammer Light of Xarxis which segways great into the world I've been slowly homeBREWING for a few years. I'm giving the free trial version of the campaign logger a try. I've got notes everywhere and Evernote, OneNote, one long google doc.... I just haven't found what works for me yet. So here's to giving CL a try.

Welcome! I think you will find CL beats all those others - at least it did for me.
Using content tags to group logs and pages, along with labels to sub-group them ... really works well for me.
I've also loaded a good chunk of the D20 5E system reference document into my CL so that I can now refer directly to core rule content directly from my pages and logs - its starting to turn CL into an interactive GM screen as well.

I would love to see an example of that. Could you post a screenshot?

Good evening everyone,

My name is Sören and I'm living in Chemnitz, Germany. I came to D&D 5e through a friend of mine only about 4 years ago. He introduced me to Critical Role and that reignited my interest for roleplaying games which I never really got into too much. Now I GM for a few friends of mine mostly online as we parted ways after university.

talked a group of friends into trying it with me, and have somehow managed to keep it going!

That sounds a lot like my group. :) I always wanted to try it, but never managed to find a group, so I thought if I want to play D&D I have to start it myself. As I had previously played around with writing short stories I just started bringing those ideas together into a campaign. Then I found Matt Colville's Channel when I looked for some practical tips and stayed for the whole show. I also stumbled upon John's free PDF about 5-Room Dungeons and found many many helpful ideas in those newsletters I get since. So after some plotting, planning and improvising I gathered some of my video game-friends and tried my best. Although we are struggling to keep a somewhat regular schedule for our sessions and are still figuring all things out we have a lot of fun. I just love the shared story telling!

My favorite die would be the d20 - so many possible outcomes from the heroic moment to total disaster.
But I also like the fact that these good old d6s I grew up with suddenly got a lot more interesting.
