Another idea is to designate a narrator to inform the Roleplayers of the actions of npcs and other outside circumstances...Like in Dungeons and Dragons.
In other words, we should get a guy to say that there's a whole in the wall somewhere, and everyone has to respond to the situation.
Zkin opens a myserious box and curiously examines the contents.
Narrator: The box is filled with tampons.
Zkin closes the box.
That might be fun right?
