To improve the efficiency of the campaign, the DM will delegate several responsibilities to the players.
- Campaign Journalist – One of the players should keep a campaign journal to record campaign adventures and other important information.
- Initiative tracker – Initiative tracking will be conducted by one of the players. This involves maintaining a list of characters and monsters in initiative order on an erasable whiteboard during a combat encounter.
- Inventory Keeper – Maintains the list of the party’s collective loot/inventory. Items that the players don’t take themselves or the monies that they get from selling gems and other items go into a group fund. After a sale of items, the Inventory Keeper splits the monies evenly among the party.
- Rules moderator – One of the players who is familiar with the rules and the layout of the rulebooks will look up rules and read them aloud to the group as needed.
