comment I'm not a DM anymore. How do I adjust to being a player again?
As someone who spent years almost exclusively GMing then found himself as a player 2/3 of the time, this answer really rings true.

comment Introducing an unorthodox setting the players know NOTHING about
I'm currently confronting this issue with Numenera. Giving the players a sense of what day-to-day life is like in the Ninth World takes some effort. While the core book provides a wealth of geographic and political information, there are really only a couple of pages that explicitly define the cultural framework. It's difficult to foster a sense of immersion when players are struggling to understand the basics of how people operate in the game world.
