Recently I started up a new game. I recruited players, got them to make characters, and was ready to have some fun with them.
One of the players keeps asking questions. They ask about every detail of their character, they ask about other roleplay systems, they ask about other characters they're generating, they ask about games and movies they're playing, they ask questions about the rules. It's a long, never ending barrage.
I regret inviting them into the game now, because it's such a drain being asked endless questions. I've told them to ask questions in the public discord or online, they agree, but they immediately go back to asking me more questions, in private messages on discord when they get some new idea. There's a certain amount of, politeness in helping them with their character and understanding the world, but their sheer volume of questions is getting tiring.
It's made worse by the fact that English isn't their first language, and often their questions are vague and confusing and not easy to answer.
We're involved in another game, and I need to remain reasonably polite, so saying "Go away and shut up." isn't a good option. What's a reasonably polite way to stem the tide of questions?
The game we are playing is Dungeons and Dragons fifth edition, so there are many knobs to tweak and play with on characters.
