Lately I’ve been involved on the player side of RPGs. In my case, Pathfinder. My cousin had been wanting to run a campaign, so we started one. That was a once a month setup at best, which apparently wasn’t enough for me. I had stories to tell with my character, dammit!
It had been a tough transition switching from Games Master to player. I’m the one used to creating the worlds and making the stories. I do it when I write, and I do it them I GM. Guy Sclanders is also afflicted with the creative bug, and created a Youtube series to help GM’s take their campaign to the next level.
For example, check out his video for creating a compelling story for your campaign setting.
