I hate to spam my own site with this sort of stuff, but perhaps some of you new dm’s out there may be interested. I’ve gone ahead and created a group dedicated to us noobs over at the Wizard’s Community site, lovingly nicknamed Wizbook.
The group is called ‘The New DM’s Group’ (very vanilla, yet to the point). It can be found here: http://community.wizards.com/new_to_dming
My hope is for the group to become sort of a clearinghouse of ideas and tips for new dm’s, and there’s a small forum there as well to have discussions.
Give it a look, and see if it’s something you’d be interested in joining.
