Sorry for My brief dissapearance. I had some friends staying and I had less time for the internet.

In completly unrelated news, my new laptop just quit on me this morning. I will be getting it repaired, but as it is I am posting from the university library, so I won't be able to post as often as usual. With luck, all should be working again by tuesday. Until then, I will try to be here at least once per day.

I'm back, it works!

sorry about that, I can't go to the library when dell says "we're sending you a new part, wait at home all day"

Then they forget to send it, more than once, but thats another story.

But now I'm back for good. I am posting from my laptop with a brand new hard drive and fresh operating system, and ready to go.

I don't have 4th ed, but the principals will be much the same. What you need to read first is the PHB. (players hand book) It contains all the rules for creating characters and how to do checks, the rules of combat, equipment costs, spell descriptions etc.

The DMG (Dungeon master's guide) is more about how to manage a campeign. It tells you how much treasure you should give the heros so tha they are powerful, but not Uber.It also gives you guidance on how to create a world, how many people who can cast 5th level spells there are in the city etc. It also has lots of information to give you inspiration.

Definatly worth a read for the DM, but only after the PHB and the players never need to see it. You don't realy need it for your first session, when you will all probably spend most of your time making characters and getting your head arround the rules. My advice would be to keep your first session relativly short on the story, with a simple, inconsequential battle that does not pose a serious threat to the characters's lives (eg the drunk guy in the tavern I used) This way people can make mistakes and still nobody should die. Whilst you all learn how combat works. Other examples are a random low-level monster you meet on the road or a wild animal.

You can start up the epic tale properly next time.

Sorry to hear that, still more time is always good for the DM.

So Rosur, did you want to play an unspeakably evil Necromancer or someone who is willing to use evil powers to achieve their own ends, with no particular desire to cause death and destruction?
