Gaming Tips

Tips for Players
Show up for the game on time. Call if you're going to be late. If you're going to miss a session, give as much advanced notice as possible.

Tips for GameMasters
Give Some Hope - The ability of the party to prevail should never depend upon the success or failure of a single action. Even if the PCs can't stop something bad from happening, at least give them the chance to lessen the negative effects. When the players work hard, they should achieve something.

From the RPG Glossary...
Gank - Two or more people gang up and kill another player, especially if they have an unfair advantage over the person being killed.

Gaming Humor

When I Am the Evil Overlord...
I will make sure that my doomsday device is up to code and properly grounded.

You Might Be A Gamer If...
You have a place where the paraphernalia of your gaming youth is displayed for the curious as a sort of shrine to "the good old days".

Gamer To Avoid
The Lazy Gamer - He doesn't bother to learn the basic game rules and setting. He can't remember if he's supposed to roll high or low, or if starships have warp drives.

Things I Learned While Gaming
No matter how well I roll, a squirrel cannot carry a horse and rider at full sprint.
