One thing rather glaringly missing from the poll options is any version of "Interact with other PCs", though the "Romance" option might vaguely touch one element of such.

Things like "In-character discussions-debates-chat between PCs", "Deceiving other PCs", and similar would have got votes from me had they been listed.

Huh. I voted for two of those, out of the maybe ten things I selected.

In-character romance-marriage-rivalry-jealousy-etc. can be lots of fun; and shopping is often the only way to get useful gear if-when the adventures aren't that forthcoming.
Shopping is so boring to me I have the players give me lists of what they want and mark what they find and don’t between sessions. And the further from a daring sim I can keep my games the better.


I’m still missing getting into silly situations, meaningful role play with other players and stacking dice while it’s not my turn.
