Just wanted a general opinion on something, so I’ve been DMing for the past 6 months or so after our original DM had left our group (4 people). I had homebrewed a world of my own creation etc and my group loved.
Fast forward to present, we’ve had one addition to our group and two more joining on after asking the group about what they thought. Regularly playing sessions at my PCs(husband & wife) house, Unfortunately, I had said something which was interpreted as sexist against the female player of the group where I asked two of the original male players to help out. To which the husband said, “My wife is pretty good at help out too.” I apologised and said I assumed they were most experienced out of our group.
Of course, this had not been said with any malice or sexism involved. The next day, the husband comes to me and says we are pulling and explains to me that his wife did not appreciated the comment I made. I had immediately apologise and said I did not mean anything by it. Having that said, the husband goes on to say that there were other things involved I.e. she did not feel appreciated. Of course, I had no idea and had always tried to communicate with the players in the sense how they were or if there was anything wrong that I could help out with.
At no point did she reach out to me and say, “Hi, there’s a couple of things I need to talk to you about.” I had sent an apology as soon as I could to her explaining everything but at last there was no response.
This news hit me like a ton of bricks and now I’m a dilemma of should I continue the campaign with the group where there’s only one of the original members left and what will be three newish players?
Any advice would be great.
