Looking for ressources that show the DM POV

Hey there, I’ve recently tried getting into Dm’ing for dnd 5e and I’m currently looking for videos or streams that show a session or oneshot from the DM’s point of view, so I can learn from their decision making and note taking.

Does anyone happen to know something like that? Or in general ressources like guides that help me with planning out a session?

Thanks in advance! :slight_smile:

Matthew Colville has a cool Youtube channel, were he talks about DMing DnD (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCkVdb9Yr8fc05_VbAVfskCA).
Good luck.

Matt Mercer has a series of GM tips on the Geek & Sundry channel:

And there is another series with Satine Phoenix (and guests), also on Geek & Sundry:

Or on this youtube chanel:


I love this dude^^

Especially the World Anvil Series

Thanks a lot you guys. So far Matthew Colville’s channels has helped me the most. :slight_smile:

I’m preparing to host my first oneshot tomorrow, hopefully it will go well. Depending on how it goes I might host it some time as part of the Thursday rounds.

Or you could just play games with several different DMs? There are a bunch of fun ones here with wildly different styles. You’ll probably learn more about what works or doesn’t work for what you want to accomplish, and have a whole lot more fun into the bargain.
