Aspiring Lurker (He/Him)
I'd like to think that Mercer has a feel for his players' sensibilities and sensitivities, yes. And he doesn't seem like the sort to be an intentional bully. OTOH, no DM is right for everyone.Thank you for that explanation. Having been in embarrassing situations before I get it. I do really think had you been in that seat Matt would have at least tried to put a stop to the stuff that bothered you. And I think the other players would have acted differently too.
May you find the game you love.
I have found the games I love, but I'm DMing them, which makes it hard to play in them. No plan is perfect. ;-)
