I am new to D&D and still learning the game. My bf is the DM. I was playing with 2 other characters who are very experienced.
In general terms, I wanted to talk to a book that was scried, but this was information outside of my character's knowledge so I headed back to the tavern to see if I could get it out of the other characters lol.
I told them what I wanted to do. No one acknowledged what I said, either to say they couldn't because it wasn't in character with what they do or otherwise. They didn't really try to help at all in explaining and the DM just let these two people take over the spotlight for the next 1.5 hrs.
They didn't incorporate me into their play; I was just a foil to whatever hijinks they had in mind. I became disengaged from play and ended up leaving the table because my heart wasn't in it. The DM continued play and didn't even take a break from it to regroup and find out what was going on. No one else seemed concerned by my lack of participation.
In the end I was really hurt over the whole thing. This is what turns off new players. The DM should have controlled play so everyone got a chance to play or someone should have explained something to me. Am I wrong?
