1 DM, 5 players. Online (Discord, YouTube). This group consists of audiobook narrators. It was originally an outreach for our new professional organization, PANA (the Professional Audiobook Narrators’ Association) so character voices are very much in style for this game. The premise is that fantasy characters have been magically transported into a particular genre of book and are trying to get home. The first season was a romantic comedy (I wasn’t in this) and the second season is Horror. We spend a lot of time being zombies and then gaining our powers back…rinse and repeat.
I enjoy my fellow players here, they are very good at improv, as you’d imagine. And they spend quite a lot of time doing their best to be entertaining onscreen. I’ve got a character I could really love playing, but the DM doesn’t have much time in her schedule to make this adventure truly fun. Small character plot points given during character creation never really pay off and the DM is not as familiar with the rules as she might be, leaving the players feeling like everything is arbitrary and the DM is just trying to annoy us with conflicts, instead of building a cohesive story.
