Gaming Tips

Tips for Players
Read about the genre and setting in which the campaign takes place. Find out what sort of races, classes, and concepts fit into the genre. Determine how gritty the setting is. Ask how mundane or extraordinary your character's background should be.

Tips for GameMasters
Allow Creativity - Let the players come up with alternate solutions to encounters. They may think of something clever that you didn't. Try to be realistic. The green key may open the green door, but a grenade will probably blast it open too. Few things are more frustrating for a player than trying to guess the GMs one-and-only answer.

From the RPG Glossary...
Party cohesion - The ability of the PCs in a party (and often, the players in a game) to avoid competition and in-fighting.

Gaming Humor

When I Am the Evil Overlord...
One of my advisors will be an average five-year-old child. Any flaws in my plan that he is able to spot will be corrected before implementation.

You Might Be A Gamer If...
You have three or more dice-boxes - one in use; the others retired, holding seldom-used, antique, faithful dice, or doing duty on the Gaming Shrine.

Gamer To Avoid
The Specialist - He's the world's best at one thing, but is completely useless in all other situations. He completely dominates one scene, then sleeps through the next thirty.

Things I Learned While Gaming
A picture of my ex-wife is not an acceptable backup weapon.
