I think I may have died and gone to DM Valhalla. I found someone online who was looking for someone to run a 5th Edition game in Vegas, and- since I started reading the PHB- I said I’d learn and run it. This is the text I got from the guy organizing the game today:
The biggest problem you may have in that regard is people writing mini novels. Backstory and world involvement is important to them. They want to know “why” they are fighting, not just stat fights v mobs.
Oh sweet d20 in the sky, I will live with problems like that.
