Day 2 – First RPG Gamemastered
Again, like I said, my memories of the very early days of my gaming are dim and faded to sepia. The first rpg that I ran was either Chainmail or the very first version of Dungeons & Dragons.
All I remember about the first adventure that I ran was that it involved orcs. There must have been an underground lair that I created on the spot or some such, 'cause I do remember that I was enamoured of underground dungeons back when I first started. I must have made a ton of mistakes, because all starting GMs/DMs do, but I can't remember what they were now. I know the second adventure that I ran for D&D was about a kidnapped princess and the ogre that "protected" her. (I remember this because I've used variants of that particular scenario premise from time to time since.)
Thinking back, I had no idea of what I was doing, but it must have been a fun time. It got me started in terms of being a DungeonMaster myself, and I must have enjoyed the experience enough that I wanted to do it again. :)
