Word Choice: What do you call your character?
Hi, folks. I'm having an odd discussion elsewhere and I thought this would be a good place to get input from the TTRPG community at large. I've recently run into more players using the term 'toon' to describe their characters. This is new to me as I've always run the 'PC' 'NPC' route. What are people's impressions of this term to describe characters? As I take my games rather seriously, I find it off-putting and trivializing, but I'd like to hear what others think.
