[Ask RPedia] Elaborating For Your Partner’s Sake?
askedsaid: Minor PSA: when you and your partner agree to do a crossover to something your partner explicitly told you they know nothing about, you’re kind of supposed to fill in the details. Don’t just describe the Dwarven castle as “the Dwarven castle.” What am I supposed to do with that? Knock on the door? Oh, there’s a moat. Thanks for clearing that up. It’s so frustrating to have to flail about and try to play along! Make it easy to participate or you’re really just writing a private fanfiction.
I like this. I can see where it may apply and questions it’ll bring up though… LET’S EXPAND ON THIS. I’m gonna rub my greasy little fingers all over your very decent PSA and help ya’ll add a little Dungeon Master to your roleplaying flair, so everyone can be on the same footing. This is, for example, very useful for super hyper-intelligent characters who are supposed to pick up on everything, or psychics and dieties and– whatever let’s go play.
