I’m a new DM and my GREEN players want to but don’t know how to RP their characters bonding. Other than time to build relationships on their own (e.g. travel), I have no idea how to set up that kind of situation for them…. I just have a plot and NPCs. Help? It's a good question. I usually have something terrible happen to them early to give them something to bond over. But if you're waiting for them to confess their secrets to each other…you may be waiting a long time. They probably don't have secrets.
