#RPGaDAY 17: Comfort

A delayed day 17 of #RPGaDAY 2020. Today’s prompt is ‘Comfort’.

It is my experience that players should not get too comfortable when playing. The best gaming happens when everyone is seated around the same table — a dinner table is the typical setting. Comfortable enough to sit down at for longish periods, but not so comfortable that the focus shifts to other things.
When playing online, there are other factors that influence player comfort. Especially the headset (and when playing online, you really need a headset) is a factor, because you’re wearing it for long stretches. Personally, I really like having two screens when playing online: one with the videocall with the group, and one with the dice rolling site, character sheets, rulebooks and scenario in PDF format, etc. Still requires quite a bit of clicking around, but I don’t think I’d want a third screen just for that.
