First Time DM tips from a First Time Player #2 : Don't forget about inspiration!
There have been many times throughout campaigns where players have shown amazing character or strategy to win the Day!...Or get rich. An example is a story about a wizard holding down a dragon the party is fighting for the rogue to hit it and instead, the rogue just starts looting since he has an open opportunity.
Does your bard sing a lot? Try to actively entertain taverns or helps the party with their musical know how? Inspiration. Does the Barbarian use his rage to catch falling rubble from hurting a pc or even an npc? Does your barbarian launch your gnome onto a dragon with a well placed toss? Inspiration. If a character is a prude and even turns his nose up to the damn king! Inspiration, and then lop off his nose! As a DM, if your pcs stay in character or do amazing and unique things with their abilities, always remember they can be rewarded for their effort in creativity and role-play! #dnd5e#dungeonsanddragons#dnd5edition#dungeonsanddragons5thedition #dungeonsanddragons5e #dnd #dndhomebrew #Roleplay #DM #D &D #Teamplayer #Toomanyhashtags
