I've been toying with an idea in my head for a while. I'd like to see if it can be executed but I'm not sure how to start.
I grew up reading and playing a lot of D&D type games and stories. Very first one was Dragonlance, and the idea that a small band of heroes can succeed where a large army failed has always appealed to me. I've also become a huge fan of the Baldur's Gate and subsequent sequels computer games. I mention this because I want to demonstrate where I come from.
Now, big games will undoubtedly overwhelm me. And since I haven't done this in oh so freaking long.... I'd like to start off small. I was thinking... four, MAYBE five, tops.
But where should I start? Should I do an interest thread first, and then detail what I'm looking for, desire? I want a story-driven game, and the romance/sex can be a "side-effect", but not the core, of the tale.
How does GMing work here, basically?
Thanks for your patience and guidance!
