3 Things To Do When You're Not Quite In Love With Your Campaign

Sometimes, even though you like your group and you enjoy playing well enough, you're just not loving the game you're playing. How do you get more enjoyment from your game without ruining anyone else's fun?

Develop Your Character

There are many ways you can develop your character beyond whatever experience mechanic your system provides. Come up with backstory that fills out parts of her personality you hadn't considered before. Figure out how he reacts to different setting elements. Create an interesting speech pattern or vocal tic.

Dig Into The Rules

If you like the game system your campaign uses but the story isn't grabbing you, you could take it upon yourself to learn the rules better. Use this knowledge for good, though. Be a resource, not a rules lawyer.

Help Everyone Else Have Fun

Talk to your fellow players and find ways for your character to work into the experience they are hoping to get from their characters. Do they need a comic foil? A friendly rival? A love interest? Offer to play toward a particular scene or bit of action.

As long as you're having fun at the table somehow without ruining anyone else's play, there are many ways to approach a campaign. Find what works for your and grab it!
