I want to run an informal poll and maybe bring up an interesting topic of conversation. As I’ve pointed out before, it wasn’t until the release of 4th ed. that I decided to DM, although I have years of experience in prior editions of the game. 4th ed. was marketed as a simpler game to run, and I want to know how many people became DMs after the release of this latest edition. If you could, leave some comments telling readers why you began to DM when you did (4e or otherwise), and if you had ever tried DM’ing before in previous editions of the game.
How many new DMs did 4e bring to the table?
