I'm a new GM(only ever run 2-3 sessions, myself) and I'm taking over for a coworker who was running our D&D program at our library branch. For the time being, we run exclusively 5th edition. I need a bit of advice on a couple of issues:
- How to help a brand new player rolling a new character, if they don't want to play a pre-rolled.
- How to craft ways for characters, whose players can't make it consistently but love the characters they play, to come in and out of the party/group.
The program is free and is mainly for teens and children.
Disclusion/kicking people out isn't an option unless they issues with behavior.
I want to be able to run a good game and make sure that the program continues and grows for the folks that try to make it and have fun. Thank you, in advance.
