[20:38:15] <bronz> Hey Apsup, how do I DM good?
[20:39:13] <Apsup> I dunno. That's really open ended question.
[20:40:19] <bronz> fair enough. I DM'd a open-ended story without a game attached for Aria. He seemed to like it.
[20:40:53] <bronz> But it felt really difficult, since I didn't have anything prepared.

[20:49:36] <Apsup> Improvisation is skill learned through experience. Also, please don't use the term DM unless you are literally playing D&D.
[20:49:54] <Apsup> That's a pet peeves of mine.
[20:49:58] <bronz> What term do I use?
[20:50:34] <Apsup> GM, game master is the most generic one.
[20:50:48] <bronz> Fair enough.
[20:51:07] <Apsup> Also, good system helps with the creative process.
[20:51:19] <bronz> What's a good system?
[20:51:38] <Apsup> There are games that shit or are even designed for two people playing.
[20:52:04] <Apsup> Use Google's, I can't bother to do rechearch for you.
[20:52:21] <bronz> That's fair, I'll try the googles
[21:01:47] <bronz> Hey Apsup? You're a cool person.
