I dmed my first game of d&d, with real people, on a real table, all who had never played d&d. Ran keep on the shadowfell, though with a new, incredibly easy first encounter to get them into it. It was interesting. My brother complained about me rolling behind a screen (of binders) and was super pissed I had the audacity to knock his character unconscious, or that dragonshields would have more hp than him. Already we got some interesting roleplay, with them destroying a window at the local inn. With the next session being mostly npc interaction, it will be neat to see how they approach it. I dunno. It was fun. They had fun. It was pretty sweet. Edit: So it helps to write things out. It helps to have feedback. It helps to think people are paying attention to you. So I'll probably use this thread as a sort of blog. Advice and/or talking down to me is perfectly fine. Not caring is also fine. Just let me talk to myself in peace in that case.
