RPGaDay Challenge 2020 - BEGINNING

So it begins...

Where does it begin exactly? I have to begin somewhere.

I suppose I could always begin at the beginning, but I feel like I've covered my beginnings so many times before this. I've no interest in beginning my beginning again.

Hmmm. This is off to a rough beginning. I'm probably beginning to get on your nerves. I know I'm beginning to get on mine. 

Beginning things is probably the hardest part of any endeavor, where it's beginning a new job, a new relationship, or even a new campaign. I never want to begin, I just want to already be knee deep in it. I often wish I could begin a new game somewhere between the third and fifth session. I want the group to already know each other, already be friends, and already have decided where they are going with the campaign. 

At the same time, the beginning of a new game is incredibly exciting and I don't want to cheat the players or myself out of those first steps into the larger universe that we'll all eventually come to understand and hopefully love. 

I guess I will begin this year's RPGaDay Challenge the way all journeys begin...with this first step.
