This question already has an answer here:
About a year ago, a saw a Dungeons and Dragons beginner set on Amazon. I was curious because I heard so much, but didn't know anyone who played. I bought it, read the books that came with it. And then rounded up a few curious friends so they could try too.
It didn't go well, we spent almost an hour killing some starting wolves. Then they went to a town and then they were all bored by this time so we stopped playing.
Is there any books I can read on being a dungeon master? And how do you begin if you've never played/no one you know has ever played?
I still have all the character sheets/scenarios, but I'm just generally unsure what it is I'm supposed to do with them.
