Okay, I've got to ask, am I doing too much exposition?


Taylor: If you had gone on the date, you and Sissi would’ve gone for a walk by the water and hear strange noises coming from the factory.
Taylor: The two of you would investigate and discover the supercomputer and Aelita.
Taylor: At some point, depending on how you reacted, Sissi would realize that the two of you would be better off as friends.
Taylor: But then I found out about Kiwi.
Eric: Kiwi? Oh, right, the dog.
Taylor: Yeah, that threw a wrench in some plans. But it worked out pretty well, I’d say. Mostly.
Eric: ?
Taylor: Well, uh, I’m sure you’re wondering why I kept Sissi’s crush.
Eric: Yeah, that crossed my mind.
Taylor: As the principal’s daughter, she can pull a lot of strings. She is also the center of the gossip grapevine. If you needed information or a way out of trouble, you go to her.
Taylor: Since she likes Ulrich, you would have an easier time asking her for things than the others.
Taylor: Giving you the advantage as the new guy. Well, new guy until Rachel.

A GM’s job is exposition. Plus Taylor is explaining their reason to him so no, I don’t think it’s too much.

This is honestly something that too few groups end up doing. Just, 1 on 1 with the GM so that everyone knows what's going on.

Mystery is all well and good in a game, but RPGs are also a cooperative storytelling venture, and having everyone on the same page is important for that aspect of things.

Honestly explaining it out like this after seeing something upset a player is a really nice thing to see. It makes them feel more human and shows us their thought process...

Unlike some Campaign comics where all the characters are completely psychotic. I'm really glad this isn't like that one.

I think MagicMixture has one of the healthiest tables in the Campaign Comic world with players that have proven themselves to be supportive multiple times with each other. It's a good cast.
