d6 Tips For a Player's First SessionFrom JohnnFour | Published June 22, 2022
Roleplaying Tips Newsletter #1,206
Brief Word From Johnn
A mid-week newsletter issue as I catch up on a few things. Today, I'd like to help brand new players. I get often emails from new players who download my Ultimate Character Questionnaire and recently realized I don't have many tips for them. So today's advice has two goals:
- Help new players have more fun in their first few sessions
- Give GMs a potential resource to send new players to help them help us have more fun at games (feel free to point them to the online version, if you feel the advice is of value)
(Also, any tips you have along these lines would be much appreciated. It's been awhile since my very first game. Just hit reply. Thank you!)
WoA Zoom Chat Sat
Wizards of Adventure, it's the last Saturday of the month in a few days, which means it's time to talk GMing!
Here's the Zoom link, time, and future schedule. Let us help you polish any rough encounters you're worried about, level up your stories or 5 Room Dungeons, provide tips for any campaign issues, and assist with any other GMing frictions you're facing.
I hope to see you there!
Also, April's Zoom recording is up for Wizards in case you missed last month's call. We demo'd building a 5 Room Dungeon plotline from scratch using ideas from the live chat. We also talked about, amongst other things, how to make encounters harder and how to make them easier.
You can download or stream the recording, download the audio version, and read a copy of the text chat and call transcript.
