Gaming Tips

Tips for Players
Teach a skill to another character, allowing them to spend experience points on something new.

Tips for GameMasters
Quick Combat - Unless your players love tactical battles on a hex mat with figurines, use cinematic descriptions of combat actions. Don't let system rules slow down the game to the point where one fight scene takes longer than five roleplay scenes. Reward players who give interesting descriptions of their actions by making them more likely to succeed.

From the RPG Glossary...
Cactus up the ass - Used to describe a no-win situation, usually as a half-mocking reply to the GM.

Gaming Humor

When I Am the Evil Overlord...
If I must have computer systems with publicly available terminals, the maps they display of my complex will have a room clearly marked as the Main Control Room. That room will be the Execution Chamber. The actual main control room will be marked as Sewage Overflow Containment.

You Might Be A Gamer If...
You've actually paid to have custom fangs made.

Gamer To Avoid
The Hoarder - He wants all of the loot and can't share equally with the other players. If his character is alone when he finds the treasure chest, no one else will ever know he found it.

Things I Learned While Gaming
I'm not allowed to taunt the rest of the party in 8 different languages because they forgot to take any.
