This guy has it. Do that. Get a feel for what they want and play a simple game. An adventure path/module may be a good place to start.

You'd be very surprised.

That sounds more like a situational thing than anything. You got an example of an action that you'd not ask for a roll for?

Hey, some of us like Simple d6 and Risus.
I personally hate how I have to explain, over and over again, what Initiative is to new players.

Or which die to toss when they attack, and which die when they hit. Shit takes valuable game time.

People choose systems they like.

>>27715093
Rats and Goblins are the basic "welcome to PnP". No fault.

I like this one the most.

Here's rule 0:
Have fun.
Here's rule 1:
Your will is the law.
Here's rule 2:
Don't be a dick.

Rules 3 to 300 are more or less a group problem.
Find a group that likes your style and DMing, and then stick with them.

And finally, never stop learning. Crack open a shitload of rulebooks for systems you will never run. Read poetry, epics, medical journals, tech manuals, wikipedia, horror stories, fantasy... Always gather information/inspiration. Most of the time, I can't figure out what part of my ass I got a campaign out, but it's a mishmash of past experiences, be it movies, /tg/ or video games.

The more you experience the better GM you become. Maybe get into a fight. Maybe dig/do manual labor for a few days. Maybe train in swordfighting. Maybe take up acting.

And, here's my personal bit of experience. You're the Gamemaster, you organize when the game is played. If you don't organize well, your game fails. Try to be consistent with your game night (eg. every Saturday).

Get to know your group, tailor things to their tastes. Have fun. Communicate clearly.

I personally would have reminded him of the zombies. Possibly pointed out WHY the zombies ain't moving once the party realized they're pretty much useless.
