hey there, new dm looking for advice! i recently started dming for a small group of my friends, and theyve taken to working on other projects during sessions or even just browsing tumblr, sharing jokes with each other. i think this is incredibly rude, and i asked them afterwards if they have any feedback or if i can do anything to make the game more interesting, what theyd like to see in the future. they said it was just fine. whats up??? am i paranoid? what can i do?

So mostly I’ve only found that new players don’t have game etiquette to not do these things. You can, of course, ask that they don’t use their phones during games unless it’s necessary. I personally can only post photos during game if someone rolls, like two d20s as a crit which is crazy but I’m not on my phone otherwise. If they’re really not paying attention make their initiative rolls suffer, or maybe they get a negative to perception, stealth, etc in game. It’s just straight up RUDE to not pay attention and play this way, so be creative! Maybe a monster is only interested in the players that aren’t paying attention and gets no damage from those that are playing (but also does no damage to those characters that are actually playing). Our DM might let us talk for a few minutes out of game, but takes in game time into consideration. So for example: we get off topic for five minutes…what’s going on game while that happens? Most likely you may get attacked. OR he’s kind enough to remind us to get back with the game before that happens. Only allow players out of game time during breaks….maybe you need more breaks? I like to break about once an hour or two since I like to smoke and it allows us all to break from the game and discuss strategy (or do whatever, check Tumblr, text your ride, etc). If they say it’s not you, it’s probably not your fault! Don’t feel like you’re making the game boring, there’s just some people that will be THAT person on their phone throughout the game. Punish them if you’d like. Maybe they just get sucked into a hole or vortex since they’re not paying attention. Or maybe it’s really not you, it’s them, and you need new players (which it has been for us in some cases). Hope that helps! Any other tips from my followers that have had similar problems?

anyways I’ve conditioned my atlanta-native roommate to be a hardcore caps fan!!! she wore my caps shirt yesterday and was listening to the caps radio during game 5

civil war where everything is the same except team cap/team iron man are rivaling baseball teams!!! this was so fun to make like you guys don’t even KNOW, this was shamelessly inspired by sports animes

everyone gets along except steve and tony who take their rivalry too seriously

Honestly, what I appreciate the most about Mass Effect: Andromeda is its light-hearted tone. I mean there were some dark moments, but arguably it didn’t get as dark as Dragon Age, Mass Effect 3, or even Mass Effect 2.

There was always this sense of hope and optimism about finding a new home. Yeah, things may have gone totally wrong, but that doesn’t mean we can’t make them better was the overall message I got.

And really, with so many bad things happening in the world right now and too much of our entertainment supposedly being our escapism being dark for the sake of dark, this was something I think a lot of us needed.

THIS IS FROM THE PENS PICTURE DAY AND GENOS JUST OUT THERE FEELING HIMSELF STRAIGHT CHILLIN BUT LOOK AT THE MAN IN THE BLEACHERS WATCHING AND CONVINCE ME THAT IS NOT LOAF OF BREAD ARTEMI PANARIN CREEPING ON OTHER RUSSIANS

These standings are as of the morning of April 16, 2017. All Game 2s have been played.

None of the infographics I’ve seen have had the series breakdown, so I made this quick one because I was tired of reading text blocks with the game breakdowns. I can try to update every 2 games and will post the new graphics. Sorry it’s not prettier, but I’m 100% not a graphic designer. Please let me know if there are any mistakes!
