So, I am leveling up…
While in the process of writing the second part of the final adventure for the campaign, I’ve come to a decision that I told my players at the last session. Since I have never played, I asked if anyone else wanted to GM so I could see what it was like from the other side of the screen. I had two volunteers, and I now have a character rolled up to play when I get back from Sydney.
I’m not retiring, I really like GMing in the interactive storytelling, even though I am more or less making it up as I go along. I sometimes feel akin to a film maker, yet I never see the film as it’s all in my head and the heads of the players. And despite the fact that it is based on a film franchise, we do have different visions of what we are seeing, even with my descriptions and music.
There’s also something I have quite not gotten used to yet with NPCs, though I guess it will change with experience. As I play all of the other characters, I have to say cliche things with total seriousness. Like playing a Jedi and speaking of “disturbances in the Force” and farewelling players with “may the Force be with you”.
I have rolled up a character, a fourth-level female Falleen Noble/Scout to play after I get back from Sydney. But I am not sure whether they will play in the two week break that I am away.
Just a short post, I’m still finishing the adventure but I am getting better at doing them. It’s not as long and I know a few short cuts.
