In future articles on the Earthmote, you can expect material that helps you build your own systems for being a successful DM. I’ll focus on areas of being a dungeon master that help you feel prepared by focusing on action-oriented content in your games. I love worldbuilding and crafting details that make my fantasy worlds come to life. But as a game master and worldbuilder, we need to realize what we do for ourselves and what we do for our games. If you feel like you are short on time, or your prep takes too long, examining what you are prepping is a good place to start. That’s not to say world building is a wasted activity. As a dungeon master, I run my own homebrew world. So, I will talk about worldbuilding areas that offer you the most impact and drive your game forward.
I’ll share some of the tools, templates and software I’ve found useful over my time running D&D. I’ll talk about tools I like, which have worked for me in implementing my systems, and why. At Earthmote, I practice continuous self-improvement and learning. So as this site grows, you can expect the ideas and information to adapt, refine and grow as well!
