A frequent topic in Dungeons and Dragons support forums, especially for DMs/GMs, is dealing with problem players at the table. Whether it's "doesn't play well with others" character build archetypes or simply disrespectful out-of-character conduct, the TL;DMs spend some time breaking down what to look out for and nipping early signs of problems in the bud. They explain why interpersonal problems are the responsibility of the DM to handle.

After some tips and tools to help prevent "that guy" problems from snowballing, Alan and Tyler talk about ways to pull your players into the creative and world building aspect of your game. By leveraging your players' personalities and perspectives and allowing them to describe their world in character, Alan and Tyler argue that DnD can easily become a hugely rewarding collaborative experience.
