In this weeks “Ask the Guild” I am going to cover a couple of related topics, revolving a little bit around conflict at the table and how to handle things. The first is how to deal with someone distracting the other players and you from the game by being repeatedly disruptive. Then I’m going to talk about how you, as the DM, handle another person not in your game coming and interfering in a similar manner. The first conflict is one that can happen with many groups, but the second is usually a spectator or bystander effect – especially if you’re playing in a public space. In the end, both are ultimately up to you as the DM to resolve and here are my recommendations.
