Every great story has a beginning, and this is where many Game Masters struggle, especially those new to the Game Master's craft. There is so much more to beginning a successful campaign than just throwing some characters together and cracking open a monster manual – and a lack of adequate planning before the game begins will show in the long run. To make your next game the best game you've ever run, come to this panel! Let veteran Game Master and all – around super nerd Jim Deeley show you many of the tips and tricks he has learned the hard way over more than a decade of trying and failing to run the perfect roleplaying campaign. This panel will teach you how to plan for a successful campaign from the outset, from the initial idea all the way to character creation & the first session of play. We will discuss the role of the game master in detail, the basics of plot design, rules set selection, whether and how to use prepared campaign supplements, do an in – depth exploration of the character creation process, and finish up with a plan to kick your game off with a bang louder than a barrage of cannon fire! Come, and let's get you started on writing the best game your players have ever experienced! (Author's Note: While this panel more than most is geared with my core audience of Game Masters in mind, this panel still contains many insights useful to writers, playwrights, webcomic artists, and any other creative person whose medium involves the art and craft of storytelling. We welcome you to come and join our panel.)
