As the Game Master, Kendall is able to guide each player towards individualized goals for communication.
At the table, an introverted player can practice being more assertive through their character’s choices. By stepping up for the group, players learn in a safe environment that it’s okay to put themselves out there more in real life, too.
On the other hand, people who tend to dominate conversations have to learn how to dial back their energy and make room for everyone in the party. Characters who won’t share the spotlight often see in-game consequences, like annoying a potential ally or drawing unwanted attention at the tavern. Feedback in game helps players practice picking up on these social cues in the real world as well.
