This is a non-exhaustive list of rules for playing D&D with me as the DM. I will provide dice, so you can ignore that part of the above image, but everything else applies.
- Don’t poke or tickle any other players, for any reason. Even if it’s what your PC is doing in-character. Just don’t.
- Use the correct names of other player’s characters.
- Don’t touch other people’s dice / stuff without their permission.
- When you make an attack, roll the attack roll and damage roll together.
- If you can make multiple attacks in one turn, be sure to keep the attack and damage rolls for each separate. Either roll them separately, or roll them with differently colored dice.
- If your attack deals damage of more than one type, either keep the damage dice separate or use different colors for each damage type. Usually you can give me the damage total, but be prepared to give me the damage separately if I ask for it. Try not to metagame from the knowledge this gives you.
- Even when it’s not your turn, have a plan in mind for what you want to do when your turn comes up. This plan may change based on other players’ actions, but when your turn comes around, you should already know basically what you’re doing.
- Feel free to roll your attacks before your turn comes up. This way, you don’t need to spend your turn totaling up the die rolls.
- For the purposes of me passing secret notes to you, the players, in a more paper-saving manner than passing out note cards, please install Telegram on your phone (https://telegram.org/).
- If you have a non-urgent question or concern, message it to me on Telegram so as not to interrupt play. This includes rules questions for actions you are not currently attempting, or asking for me about the specifics of something I said a while ago (I can usually just copy and paste the relevant part of my notes into Telegram).
