Playing at the tabletop during and after pandemic
So, I've been working on a series/ campaign to play with friends when the pandemic is over, but I now think that tabletop play will never really be the same. The people I played with now is a community of folks who talk about playing, but we don't seem to get it together. This isn't only due to fear of illness, but also due to the upheaval in lifestyle the pandemic has produced e.g. interrupting habits, greater fatigue.
I'm not a fan of Zoom etc., but I guess it is now necessary to consider what will replace the kitchen (or other room) for play, and what to do when seeking other people to play with, and other new challenges. I'd like to hear how have people dealt with this, or suggestions, or just commiseration whatever.
