—Ask The Bellhop—

Tonight we’re going to remind everyone that tabletop doesn’t just mean board games to us, with an RPG topic.

Our question comes from Brent McBride the owner of Hidden Trail Escape Rooms down in Windsor. Brent asks:

“I have almost no experience in playing D&D or any role playing games but I think I would have a blast being a DM eventually. What’s the fastest path to getting to be a solid DM?”
