So, something that has been on my mind off and on for a while now is the phrase “you see” during a RPG session. Such as “when you walk into the room, you see a desk and a chair”. It’s something we all do and say while gaming, but it has made me wonder- is there something that can be said besides you see?
I really don’t know if there is any other way to put it. Maybe there is and I haven’t thought of it yet…. And it’s also 2:15 in the am and my brain still isn’t working all that great right now.
I have listened to quite a few actual plays and it’s such a typical phrase…. “You see….”. I don’t know if it’s just by brain latching onto a phrase that I am hearing over and over and I’m just not hearing it put another way, or if this is just the standard way of describing the moments to the characters.
Super short post but am curious as to what everyone else does. Do you all just say “you see…” or do you have different words that you use during your sessions to help describe a characters surroundings?
Thanks all and I look forward to hearing your thoughts!
