Gaming Tips

Tips for Players
Show up for the game on time. Call if you're going to be late. If you're going to miss a session, give as much advanced notice as possible.

Tips for GameMasters
Avoid Linchpins - Be careful with clues and puzzles. The players will not be able to notice and solve all of them. Make sure that there are several clues pointing toward the same fact. Don't put puzzles in a story that take more than 15 OOC minutes for the players to solve.

From the RPG Glossary...
Game time - Measurement of the passage of time in the world of a game; not the actual, literal passage of time according to the clock on the wall in the real world.

Gaming Humor

When I Am the Evil Overlord...
I will make sure that my doomsday device is up to code and properly grounded.

You Might Be A Gamer If...
You've ever found yourself associating with people who you'd otherwise avoid in public - because they were gamers.

Gamer To Avoid
The Lazy Gamer - He doesn't bother to learn the basic game rules and setting. He can't remember if he's supposed to roll high or low, or if starships have warp drives.

Things I Learned While Gaming
My thief's battle cry is not "Run and live!"
