Getting Started as a Dungeon Master

Dungeon Masters can wear many hats. Storyteller, voice actor, improvisational artist, comedian, rules referee, combat strategist, party host, event planner (both for the people playing in your game and for the people in your game world), cartographer, puzzle crafter, content creator and organizer, among many others. The skills you use while dungeon mastering and preparing to run game sessions have many applications outside of the game, and this is one of the funnest and most rewarding ways to practice them. Your primary job as a Dungeon Master, however, is to make sure everyone at your table is engaged and having fun!
