    Episode 1: So You Want to Play God

    Episode 1: So You Want to Play God

    So you want to play God? Even the God of the Universe could use a little advice - after all, should He use D&D 5E, or go for something more like GURPS?

    Let's back up a bit - we're talking about becoming the DM/GM/Storyteller for a collaborative storytelling session or campaign - often known as a Pen & Paper RPG! When you're the one sitting at the head of the table, you're in control - the God of your universe.

    That doesn't mean you can do anything you like - being God is hard, and all those whiny little gits - that is, our valued players - will complain if everything isn't just so.

    So you need some help. Who does a God turn to for help? Why, to other Gods, of course!

    Tune in with veteran DMs Nathaniel and Christopher Keefer as they walk you through your choice of RPG system today, and stay tuned as they help newbies get running and having fun quickly and easily, and give veterans tips on how to negotiate the often murky waters of Playing God.
