Tonight was my first night DMing anything whatsoever, and boy howdy I did not need to write out twenty-six pages of backstory when I had to off-the-cuff most of the evening. It was fun (much fun!), but I don't particularly enjoy improvising or acting or having a group of people look at me; what I like is building the world and populating the world with characters and drawing maps. Writing. That is called writing. I like the writing part.

I also miss playing my grouchy half-elf ranger and not having to convince two-thirds of the adventuring party that the young woman sitting by her wagon and crying about a broken wheel really isn't part of an ambush and that maybe tying her up and terrorizing her isn't the greatest idea, although it is awfully fun to come up with ideas for secret doors.
