What sometimes makes pacing difficult during an in-person game is that most tabletop RPGs are complicated board games, and complicated board games have a long setup phase.

Some time ago, I and some room mates came up with the idea of all of us GMing in the same "universe" of a game, but rotate who had that power. After several little campaigns (and for me, character sheets), we had a "reunion" adventure where everyone (without telling) put forth their favorite character they've played so far. Two of the characters picked, did not leave previously on good terms.

Gerald (Human knight): ... Dragon.

Rex (Dragon born fighter): ... Human.

Gerald: Burn any more villages down?

Rex: Of course. Destroy more land to create those villages?

Gerald: You know I did.

Gerald and Rex: ...

Party: ...

Twitchy (The drunk dwarf gunslinger): Listen you two, I don't really care about whatever tension you two have between you, but if you want the rest of us to get you two a room so you can go for that lizard-tall-midget thing you two want, then so be it.

For those wondering, it did not end in any romantic way.

The party cad captured the crazy witch Miluda Zalmus and had to transport her through a dangerous city-state run by a vampire, Elena Draclau. The party could not escape customs ("do you have any alcohol, tobacco, or witches to declare?") and so Elena caught up with them.

The party has tangled with Elena before. Never actually fought her, unlike Miluda. All their encounters were political. Well, Elena shows up and the party bard introduces the team again. He adds Miluda in as a 'Passenger Escortee' of the party.

Bard: "And this is Miluda Za-"
Elena: "We've. Met."

Turns out the two were once part of the same adventuring party long ago, before Elena turned vampire and Miluda crazed witch. The party actually diplomatically helped the two patch up their rocky relationship so that they could continue their quest.

Or maybe the Bard was just shipping them. Could be both.

Any particular reason you suddenly shifted from JPG to PNG?
And right in the middle of an adventure!

(Probably going to claim it signifies transition from Earth to Moon
like Oz is in color and Kansas is not)

Red text + black speech balloon + JPG compression = blurry dialogue.

You know that YouTube meme where someone puts their preferred franchise, gaming platform, or what have you, and then follows it up with "master race!"

Well, pretend I wrote a comment consisting of that meme, and that the preferred thing I inserted was the PNG image format, and that you don't find such base humor utterly repulsive.
