Gaming Tips

Tips for Players
Create a character with a good balance of mundane and adventuring skills. Every PC should have a useful role in the party. Talk about your choices with the other players, to make sure that the party has a good variety.

Tips for GameMasters
Don't Abuse Power - Players enjoy a logical, balanced game. Avoid making arbitrary decisions. You are the interface between the players and a virtual world. It's not your world, existing simply to show off your creativity as a designer. It is the setting in which enjoyable stories should take place.

From the RPG Glossary...
Rush - To attack so quickly and suddenly that the enemy has no time to prepare a proper defense.

Gaming Humor

Gamer To Avoid
