I’ve been playing a lot of Dungeons and Dragons lately.  Surprisingly enough, this isn’t a normal occurrence for me.  I never got into the D’s when I was younger.  Sure, I played once or twice with some friends, and had friends who played regularly, but I never really got into it.  In my adult life, however, an interest was piqued after listening to some podcasts of people playing and I got a group of friends together to play.  This quickly led to me finding other groups, so that I could both run games AND play games.  It’s a gateway drug, I have found, because I find myself wanting to play more and more.  It also got me thinking.  The DM chair is the one often toughest to fill.  Most people want to make a character and have grand adventures, for most people, actually putting the adventures together, and being responsible for story, isn’t really appealing to them (I happen to find it fun).  So, I thought, wouldn’t it be nice to have that automated?  Every time you boot up the DM9000 you get a brand new story and adventure!  He’s actively trying to kill you though, so be careful.
