As a fairly new gamer (and someone whose experience in the past hasn’t been in games with a lot of narrative focus or improvising), one of the things I find hardest is being able to come up with conversations on the spot that I feel like fit very well with how I imagine my character to be. The first few sentences of back and forth are usually fine, but then I run out of improv gas and I feel like I end up grasping for reactions. It’s easier for me to describe how my character is acting physically (like “they cross their arms and shrug”) then to come up with words that feel like something they’d say…
So I’m wondering, how do you approach having conversations in character and what are tips or resources you might have?
(in real life, I like to plan conversations ahead and/or resort to written communication… so… this might be a me thing… )
