my boys and I played our very first session ever of a tabletop rpg...and it was Edge of the Empire.
I have never played a pen-n-paper rpg, much less GM'd one, but I think I did ok. We had a lot of fun, in spite of my flubbing the rules and not doing a very good job (in my opinion) of telling the story. But, we still had quite a bit of fun, and I think it will only get better as I get more used to it, and learn more how to run a game.
One of the highlights?
They had made it to the Space Command building, needing to release the dock clamps on the Krayt Fang. They break in through a side door, and walk into the control room. The overseer is standing there, with her back to the players. Jacob (my youngest son) decided to get on the intercom and call the overseer to the cafeteria for her lunch break. Yeah...he failed it, but he did get some advantages out of the roll...so I had the overseer send one of the two security droids to go "see what the hell is going on out there".
They had to get a part for the starship they needed to escape the planet, so they go to the junk shop to find it. First thing Jacob says: "We have a droid for sale or trade" That droid? Yeah, that was their mother...her character was the droid...
At any rate...we laughed about that one.
We had a good time, like I said, in spite of my screw ups with the game. But, that is nothing that some practice won't take care of eventually...
