It’s frustrated when you’re trying to say something and are muted.
It’s worse when you’re trying to say something and your players won’t mute.

The way speakers and most VOIP are set-up, when more than one person is talking you hear nothing. There’s just overlap and noise. It inevitably happens sometimes: even with web cameras there’s a lack of body language and cues that someone’s trying to talk. And there’s that 5-second delay between you starting to talk and realizing someone eIse is talking at the same time, where you potentially both stop and then start again, like people continually blocking each other when trying to walk down a sidewalk.

But it’s extra frustrating when important descriptions or plot advancing questions are being killed so someone can make a “deez nuts” joke.

Designs are available as T-shirts but some work as masks. I now only have a single income, making finances are tight and gaming books a luxury. Any purchases are greatly appreciated.
