An anonymous reader asks,
I’m in a bit of a predicament. I absolutely love role-playing with one of my friends, however, our scenes usually end with one of us having to go and neither of our characters exiting. This makes it irksome for the other person, as they don’t know what to assume has happened after the other has logged. How do I ask them, and how might I go about making better exits?
I’d like to step away from the musings on in-character to talk a little instead about the relationships we form as players. Not everyone ventures into the out-of-character; getting to know those they roleplay with and perhaps even come to call them friends – but some of us do! And it comes as a double-edged sword that can both enhance our roleplay experience – or damper it when things don’t quite work out
