Sometimes our games get into a rut.
Sessions start feeling same-y and things start getting boring, honestly.
If you do the same thing week in and week out for a while, it really can start dragging on the group.
You’ve basically got two options to keep it fresh.
The first is to literally change what you’re doing. Maybe run a oneshot one week, or play a different game entirely.
The second is to change the feel of what you’re doing. Giant dungeon crawl? Find a way to mix in some social interaction. Social-heavy campaign? Maybe mix in a dungeon crawl.
If you notice things dragging, take a fresh perspective and see what you can do to liven things up and change the tempo at your next session.
