Tips for Players
While the game is in progress, keep the OOC talk at the table to a minimum. Off-topic chatter can be distracting and frustrating to those people who are enjoying the game. If you make a side comment, make it clear whether you are speaking as your character or as yourself.
Tips for GameMasters
Know Their Minds - Understand the short and long term goals of each PC and player. While you are running adventures to forward the main plot, there should be room for subplots that center on these goals. Get feedback from the players to improve your storytelling skills and tailor the story to your audience.

Gamer To Avoid
The Rollplayer - He doesn't describe his actions. He merely says, "I try to hit it" and rolls the dice.
