Re: Want To Play? Looking For A Group? Post Here!

I want to DM a pbp game, but I've never done such a thing before. I have a general idea already in my mind. Does anybody have any advice?

First things first you may want to change then name on this here topic so that it better reflects what you are going for so that more people actually notice and give advice.

Now on to more pertinent things
There is no real right way to be a DM.
Most styles can work depending on the group,setting,and tone of the story. But there are somethings that are frowned on by most players like Harsh Railroading, overpowered DMPCs, and punishing the players being creative.

If you post the ideas that you have right now then I could help some more as good advice for one type of game can be almost useless for another.
(also getting people interested in the game is the first things you need to do as a DM.)

Don't do that, I think the thread split. Keep this one going, and if you need a more specialized thread then make a new one.

I agree with tygerburningbright that more targeted suggestions can be given if we know what your campaign idea is. There are a few more general pieces of advice floating around the forum since some pieces of advice are shared across RPG systems. The most immediate one I'll give is not to take on a massive number of players for your first campaign since it's a lot to keep up with.
