So I have yet to buy or play Dungeon World, but I already LOVE it. I’ve spent most of my waking hours researching, reading blog posts, watching APs, poring through the guide, and reveling in the epic adventures other groups have had playing this game. No joke, guys: this is pretty much exactly the game I was looking for when I first took an interest in tabletop RPGs like four years ago (and I may have gotten little teary-eyed when I realized this).
I really want to play this game with my siblings, for a bunch of reasons:
A) I’ve wanted to introduce them to tabletop for AGES.
B) This game is very newbie friendly (all of them are 100% greenhorns when it comes to tabletop).
C) We have a great dynamic as a group. Very energetic, creative, and we play off each other really well. Most other board games are a blast.
However, even though I’ve been interested in tabletop for a while, I only have three half-campaigns (edit: as a PC) under my belt. (edit: I’ve never DM-ed before.) My first group was perhaps too large, amorphous, and inexperienced to ever really finish a game.
I’m concerned that I’ll be jumping in over my head if I DM for the first time for a bunch of first-time RPGers.
What are your thoughts? Suggestions? Should I jump in feet first and see if I can swim? Should I maybe try and find someone at my FLGS to show me the ropes? Should I perhaps dip my toes in first and ask someone to play one-on-one (me DM, them PC)?
Thanks all. This is a great group.
