Today, during Saturday Morning Cartoons, I think I finally nailed down my GM’ing.
I didn’t have a crazy adrenaline spike, I didn’t sweat it when I wasn’t sure how a situation would play out. The players gave me the space to move the play along at an exciting pace, and still frame a scene properly. I prepped just enough to run smoothly without bogging any particular situation down.
I wasn’t worried about furiously trying to run perfectly, or making sure no one was bored EVER.
I just really, REALLY, enjoyed the experience, and so did the players.
That’s not to say other sessions haven’t been good, or even great, but this is the first time I felt 100% comfortable as a GM, like I was just talking with friends.
I owe a lot of that to The Gauntlet, and the positive player culture. So thanks for letting me cut my teeth here, and become better.
