- Be present in the moment: Try to stay focused and engaged with the game, and be ready to respond to whatever happens in the game world.
- Say "yes, and": This is a classic improv principle that means you should accept whatever happens in the game world and build upon it, rather than denying it or blocking the action.
- Stay in character: Try to stay true to your character's motivations, desires, and mannerisms, and avoid breaking character unless necessary.
- Don't be afraid to make mistakes: Improv can be unpredictable, and it's okay to make mistakes or go in unexpected directions. The key is to stay relaxed, have fun, and keep the game moving.
- Use your imagination: D&D is all about using your imagination to create a shared story with your fellow players. Don't be afraid to think outside the box and come up with creative solutions to challenges or interesting ideas for your character.
- Respect the boundaries of your fellow players: Make sure to get consent before doing anything that could potentially be uncomfortable or triggering for your fellow players.
- Keep the game moving: Try to keep the game moving at a good pace and avoid getting bogged down in too much detail or discussion.
- Have fun: Above all, remember that D&D is a game and is meant to be enjoyed by everyone. Don't take things too seriously and have fun with your fellow players.
