Hi all, I want to get the players to use the portal more and add stuff themselves. I have been told that there is a 37% more chance of players with secrets to be active so I would like to brainstorm with you ways to use the player secrets in game.
Until now I have just played with secret stuff openly, trusting my players to roleplay appropriately or the player to share the secret with the team relatively quickly. For example, one player has a mask that talks to his mind urging him to put it on in battle (it is a somewhat bloodthirsty mask). I just do this openly. Should I just text the player in game and then put the info in the secrets? I kinda already have my hands full DMing than to go and text players individually all the time. (we play over google hangouts)
I have another player that lost his arm sacrificing it to gain a warlock patron, and now the arm is regrowing back, but differently. I am using the player secrets to keep the player informed on the growth before games.
I still find it a bit hard to envision how I can use this best, it seems I am putting stuff in for them they could well be public or just told to them. What have you guys used it for and how have you guys gotten players to add more? I would love to hear any and all ideas on creative use of the player secrets box.
