My entire experience with TTRPG is limited by all that I played on this site, so I'm not very well-informed about the general community surrounding this genre. I figured there are a lot of people who played longer and can offer some advice.
My question is this: is there any unwritten etiquette for reusing characters from old games? Like if the game ended or was abandoned, or your character left it, and then you want to use said character in another game. What you personally would think about it as a GM or/and as a player? Would you as the GM be comfortable with players reusing characters? Or with players reusing characters that were in your game in someone else's game?
Of course there are no rules for it and it's ultimately up to personal stances, but I was curious to see if there are any major consensuses. :)
(I have a nmumber of characters from the games that are no longer active, just sitting there in my library collecting dust. I want to play them again - maybe rewrite some backstory, do some build changes, but keep the general identity, - but doubts keep holding me back.
I tried to ask the GMs about reusing the characters I made for them, but I think I only ever received one answer. And most of the GMs in question are inactive anyway.)
Thanks for your time!
