Gaming Tips

Tips for Players
Interact well with NPCs, whether they are friend or foe. Treat them like real people.

Tips for GameMasters
Be Dramatic - Major events in the story should be memorable. Something that impresses or intimidates a character is likely to seem larger-than-life. If a PC dies, make sure it's a particularly tragic or heroic death that fits into the storyline.

From the RPG Glossary...
Cinematic - Describes a roleplaying style where heroic characters are allowed to perform super-human or impossible feats (such as defying the laws of physics), simply because they're the heroes.

Gaming Humor

When I Am the Evil Overlord...
All midwives will be banned from the realm. All babies will be delivered at state-approved hospitals. Orphans will be placed in foster-homes, not abandoned in the woods to be raised by creatures of the wild.

You Might Be A Gamer If...
You've bought a game even though you didn't like the genre or the rules, so that you could fix the rules and convert them to a different genre.

Gamer To Avoid
The In-Fighter - He frequently instigates conflict with other player's characters.

Things I Learned While Gaming
If the king rewards me with a forest, I am to assume he intends for me to keep it a forest.
