Gaming Tips

Tips for Players
If you need to take a break from the game or stop for a meal, give the GM a little warning so that he can find a good stopping point in the action.

Tips for GameMasters
Offer Bonuses - Award experience points based on participation. Reward players for extra effort. If you give bonuses for solving puzzles, coming up with good plans, interacting well with NPCs, and resolving plot points, no single character will be the perpetual "party leader".

From the RPG Glossary...
Named NPC - An NPC which has a name, stats and a background, likely to show up in more than one scene or adventure; an NPC which is not a dorito.

Gaming Humor

When I Am the Evil Overlord...
When I've captured my adversary and he says, "Look, before you kill me, will you at least tell me what this is all about?" I'll say, "No." and shoot him. No, on second thought I'll shoot him then say "No".

You Might Be A Gamer If...
You've had a heated debate about how your mage could beat the paladin that could beat the alien in Predator 2.

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
Whatever monster we just killed is not to be tonight's dinner.
