Gaming Tips

Tips for Players
Check the character creation guidelines presented by your GM. Make sure that you understand how many points you have to spend, and any house rules he may be using.

Tips for GameMasters
Party Harmony - Don't allow inter-party conflict to create bad feelings between players, or turn the focus away from the plot. A roleplaying game is not a first person shooter. Even a party of rogues can find logical reasons to be civil to each other.

From the RPG Glossary...
Non-player character - (also: NPC) A character in an RPG whose actions are determined by the GM; NPCs populate the fictional world of the game, from the friendly innkeeper in a medieval fantasy game to a cyborg in a futuristic game; NPCs might be allies, bystanders or competitors to the PCs.

Gaming Humor

When I Am the Evil Overlord...
After I kidnap the beautiful princess, we will be married immediately in a quiet civil ceremony, not a lavish spectacle in three weeks' time during which the final phase of my plan will be carried out.

You Might Be A Gamer If...
You actually know the name of the Predator species (Yautja).

Gamer To Avoid
The Rules Lawyer - He knows all the rules and uses them to his advantage. He can't stand it when the GM fudges a rule or dice roll to help the story along.

Things I Learned While Gaming
When any character from a d20 sourcebook is allowed, that doesn't include System Lords.
