In this episode of the Dice of Doom podcast we discuss our New Years Gaming Resolutions, and we do a review of the iPhone game 100 Rogues (and reminisce about old rogue-like games). Our main topic of discussion is titled ‘GM’ing: Rotating the Pain, or, Advice for Beginning GM’s’. As part of our Grand Gaming Experiment many of our players are picking up the Games Mastering mantle for the first time. We thought we’d take the opportunity to discuss some strategies that can help a new GM run a successful game. The discussion covers the basics of character generation, world creation and when and how to use the rules from a Games Master’s perspective.
