This is just a strange social custom I wanted to note. People who join my games generally do not write very long descriptions. However, people who have been playing with me for a long time write character descriptions that are at least a paragraph long in which they encapsulate every visible piece of equipment and attempt to describe their character from head to toe. Over time, those who join up conform to this social norm and describe their character's in more detail.
It's an amazing process to watch.
