The D&D 30 Day Challenge: Day 1

Day 1 of the D&D challenge. How I started the hobby.

I have decided that during September I’ll be doing the D&D 30 day challenge. These will be small post about me and the game, enjoy.

How you got started

Watching the game

On January 28 a YouTube channel called Node uploaded a video. D&D 5th Ed – Call of the Wild Ep.1 – Beast Within. In Belgium D&D doesn’t have a big following but I’ve heard of it via tv-shows. So the episode peeked my interest and I started watching my first RPG game.

I was hooked! Immediately after I wanted more. I searched on Youtube and eventually I found Rollplay. They had more then 100 episodes of playing D&D and for a few months that was all the D&D I got.

Finally playing

After a few months of watching (and sometimes binging) I decided it was to to finally play the game myself. I went to reddit/r/lfg and made a post requesting a game. I did’t take long until I found someone who would be my DM. A guy from the Netherlands who wanted to run a 1 on 1 campaign. Happy I could play I agreed to it.

I had a fun session but two days later he messaged me saying he didn’t want to be a dungeon master anymore and that I should do it.

The next week we started playing Hoard of the Dragon Queen with me as the DM. Since that moment I haven’t stopped DM’ing. That campaign only lasted a few sessions since the guy who made me run the game was a rather toxic player and I had to look for a new group.

But that’s the small story of how I started D&D (and DM’ing)
