Too Quiet

Nothing’s worse for a DM than having a quiet table when he wants the players to react to something going on.

It usually means one of the following:

  1. The players have lost interest.
  2. The DM has failed to properly communicate the scene.
  3. The players have spontaneously developed telepathic powers whilst the DM, unfortunately, has not.
  4. Too busy texting.
  5. The players are so in awe of the DM’s skill in storytelling that they are unable to talk

Hint:  It’s never #5, and almost never #3.
