Day 30: Best DM You've Had
Here we are at the end.
What an interesting little trip this was. I enjoyed reading everyone's postings all week and congrats if you made it to the end.
Best DM. Wow. I have had a lot of great ones over the years. Restricting this just to D&D though makes it easier.
I have had a lot, but I have to give the nod to my hometown DMs for 1st Ed.
Jon Cook was my first DM and his style was what we might call Gonzo these days. Everything, all over the place and all at once. Just crazy ass shit all the time. If we didn't know a rule we just kept going. Jon just had solid love of the game and that what made his games fun.
My next DM was Bob Grenda. He was in High School with me and that man created worlds on worlds. His campaign was so layered and detailed that every game was epic. I have been begging him for years to clean up his "Mad Wizard Killian" series of adventures (Killian's Tower, Killian's Castle, Killian's Maze...) to publish for OSRIC. It's not just my memories, those adventures rocked and I will take the Pepsi challenge on them verses the best of the old school any day of the week.
Until then the loss is ours.
I hope you all enjoyed this little ride!
