I always wanted to play a pen and paper roll playing game. I just recently convinced some friends to play one and they refused to play D&D citing that it was too nerdy. So I searched the internet for a simple game to get them involved, thinking after a few session I might be able to talk them into D&D or some other complex game.
I was elected to be DM even though I have never played one either, they just figured I knew more about them than any one else.
So we have played one session of a game called Risus. ( http://www222.pair.com/sjohn/risus.htm)
It is a humorous game and Im running a humurous campaign and so it works. Everyone had a lot of fun last time, and we are playing again tonight.
I just have a couple of questions, any of you ever used that gaming system? and have tips for a starting out DM?
Secondly the game is quite simplistic and shallow and I believe we will tire of it soon, can any one suggest a difference pen and paper roll playing game that might be good for us?
