Gaming Tips

Tips for Players
Try to uncover all of the secrets about an NPC. It might come in handy later on.

Tips for GameMasters
Pace the Story - Don't give blow-by-blow descriptions of the boring parts of the story. For example, let the players provide a list of shops they visit and supplies they purchase. Don't make them roleplay walking down each aisle and up to the cash register.

From the RPG Glossary...
Cathartic module - A module designed to produce a strong emotional reaction in players, often involving immersion in character and evocative subject matter, sometimes run as a systemless scenario at a convention.

Gaming Humor

When I Am the Evil Overlord...
My security keypad will actually be a fingerprint scanner. Anyone who watches someone press a sequence of buttons or dusts the pad for fingerprints then subsequently tries to enter by repeating that sequence will trigger the alarm system.

You Might Be A Gamer If...
You wear vampire fangs in everyday life (not to mention Renaissance festivals).

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 use thermodynamic science to asphyxiate the orcs' cave instead of exploring it first.
