Give me 5 stars xD

Enjoy the journey. Expect to learn a lot about people and herding cats. And don't let them burn you out before you get there.

It makes me wonder how old the youngest 5 star is already - and the oldest?

As mentioned in the thread referenced above there is healthy competition for the youngest.

Eldest is probably Wes Nicholson. I'm not saying he's old, but if he were an AD&D red dragon he'd have 88 hit points. Youngest probably one of the online 5-Stars, Arthur Perkins or Steven Fresques, but that's an assumption not based on knowledge.

I think Arthur's older than I am - but I have no clue about Steven.

I'm 23 now (was 22 when I made my 5th star). Anyone younger than me?

You better apply some ice to that burn.

How can you both be 15 years old *and* get that joke? ;)

Seriously, welcome aboard. Word of advice, though: treat every game like it is your 150th. You can have five stars, but the only numbers that really matter are the 6 players at your table right now.

I turn 32 today. I don't know Steve's exact age but it's close to my own.

Keep in mind that star number 5 effectively has a frequent flyer convention requirement on it because of the large number of specials you have to run. (unless you run bonekeeps ad nauesum online)

That is very deep.

And I used to look through my dad's D&D stuff when I was little. I know how this works :)

There is an abundance of games in your area. I'm sure they'd love to have another GM. :)

I'm pretty sure your Taldan like beard adds many years to your age...

I like this one.

Liberty's Edge 5/5 Venture-Lieutenant, Washington—Seattle aka The Great Rinaldo!

Shasfowd is quite well known to the VOs and coordinators in the area.

I'll leave it up to him to decide if that's a good thing or not. ;-)

Earn them and I certainly will!

Good luck, and pace yourself!

Make sure you get in a healthy amount of play intermixed with your GMing. Best way to be good at the art is to play and GM, learn what works from both sides of the screen, and play a variety of character concepts (something that all the chronicles you'll get will help with).

Don't be afraid to rerun stuff... you'll only get better each time you run a scenario, and with your goal, I'd assume a lot of chrons is not essential!

And... always... have fun!

Now I'd like to quote you on something:

"As a reward for her accomplishment, I am personally buying her a copy of the Gamemaster Guide if she doesn't have one. Also Shasfowd is the greatest person in the world and he's so awesome" XD
