I just started GMing my first-ever Stars Without Number game.
I decided I’d have a session zero and walk my players through the character creation, as they were casual and had never used the system either. I knew they were a rambunctious group, so I made a few minor rule exceptions, and then one player had to leave.
I stayed with the second player to walk them through the equipment buying process, and they seemed very confused with the idea that you are the creator of your character and can create what you want (within reason) and kept asking me to “just roll the dice” or “just decide for me”! I tried explaining this basic idea to them, but then I realized I couldn’t.
This is one of my first games, and with friends also, so I am questioning if I am a decent GM or not.
