Tips for a new TDE 1 Game master

  • Hey there !

    As the title says, I'm starting to host the dark eye games with friends on rule set 1, original 1985 books (for the French edition).

    Any tips ? We played the first mini scenario from the adventure book, but it took 3h30 to play out ! I'm worried regular scenarios are gonna be much longer...

    I'm also pretty new at game mastering, so general tips are welcome ! (Only did it for HeroQuest, which more like a board game with rpg elements)

  • Well... 3h30 is a short session or the minimum time. ;)

    We don't meet for less. But its totally normal to pause at a point of the story, met again a week later and continue playing. But it all depends on what you like. How do you want to play? More like HeroQuest? Or more like no fighting at all, with a lot talking between all the Character in the world? But all doesn't matter much, you just do it like you want it.


    So general games mastering? Don't panic. Play with your players not against them.
