Gaming Tips

Tips for Players
Try to significantly help further the main plot, or resolve a sub-plot. Don't make another player do all the work.

Tips for GameMasters
Never Railroad - Never make the players feel like they are being pushed towards a specific outcome. The ending of the story is in the player's hands, not yours. Win or lose, it's up to them. Guide them toward key plot points as gently and subtly as possible.

From the RPG Glossary...
Critical mass - The point in a game session when everything has gotten way too silly and play ends because people are laughing too hard to do anything else.

Gaming Humor

When I Am the Evil Overlord...
If all the heroes are standing together around a strange device and begin to taunt me, I will pull out a conventional weapon instead of using my unstoppable superweapon on them.

You Might Be A Gamer If...
You remember when all games referred to characters as "he".

Gamer To Avoid
The Joker - His sense of humor comes up at inappropriate times, or isn't considered funny by others. He destroys the mood of a scene by cracking jokes or making off-color comments, either IC or OOC.

Things I Learned While Gaming
Just because my character and I can speak German, doesn't mean the GM can.
