It might seem a bit obvious, but I was talking to a good friend and fellow DM the other day, and we realized that quite a fair few DMs may not have actually read the thing!
If you’ve never had a chance to sit down and actually read the Dungeon Master’s Guide, it’s well worth your time to do just that.
Yes, there are a bunch of magic items and monster creation math and crunchy stuff, but there’s a wealth of useful information about how to run the game, manage players, and create great stories at your table.
And there are loads of great little sidebars with optional rules and advice that make your life just a little bit easier.
So before your next session, give it a shot – crack open that book and see what you find!
