The Very Hungry Rust Monster is a mini-comic I made a few years back. I’ve seen it floating around Tumblr without attribution recently, so I’ve uploaded a higher-resolution version, properly credited.

Take a look into the Dragons of both D&D lore as well as Warhammer.
In D&D green Dragons are known to breath Poison Gas. But that is usually a last resort as they prefer lies and trickery. One of the greatest of them is Cyan Bloodbane.
While wielding a DragonLance one is usually riding a Dragon also.
There is a Tower in the Dragonlance world, (where the previous picture is located) where there was a trap room. A magical Orb would hypnotize the Dragons and call them to itself. Once at the Orb the large door behind would shut and trap the dragon, The Knights would then all thrust DragonLances through holes in the walls, killing the Dragon.
It sounds exciting. And just remember to keep the story going. Dont let player strong arm you. If a rule or question comes up, do your best to make a decision on the spot. Whatever it is, you are right. If later you look up the info and you change your mind, well now you are MORE RIGHT.
And Im sure more than a few people who follow me can send you some well wishes and advice. ♥
Actually I am simply less concerned about what people are thinking of me. I am focused more on making sure my players are having a good time in the game.
Wow. Thats really awesome. Thats indeed good work. :-D
Actually for me, DM’ing brings out the extrovert in me. I am more expressive, more assertive, when I’m the DM. I’m pretty much a completely different personality when I’m DM.
Hmm. Thats very interesting. Do you perhaps feel safer being outgoing because the DM screen is a “shield” of sorts? Or is it the safety of the power you wield?
It definitely helps me make friends faster but those first few games with someone new in the group are pretty rough. Luckily the first games I ever ran were only with friends I had known for years.
For me, someone new in the group is kinda a litmus test. I have a strong personality and can be.. abrasive at times. If you havent noticed. Sometimes they are taken aback so I reign it in, sometimes they are intrigued and I meet a kindred soul and its awesome.
I know being an extrovert makes Dungeon Mastering a little bit easier.
Im curious about people who are introverts who DM and how it interacts? Has DMing helped increase your interaction personally? Was it difficult to DM at first? Is it still? Can you only DM for people you already know?
Tell me about it.
