Gaming Tips

Tips for Players
Discuss your ideas for a character concept with the GM. You may not get as much time in the spotlight if your concept doesn't fit in well with the storyline. Avoid making "lone wolf", immoral, obtuse, or annoying characters.

Tips for GameMasters
Avoid PC Puppets - Except in rare circumstances, the GM should not control a player's character. If the PC is charmed, explain to the player how they should roleplay until the effects are over. Don't run a PC while the player is gone - if necessary, let another player get permission to do so.

From the RPG Glossary...
Power up - Anything that gives the character a temporary advantage.

Gaming Humor

When I Am the Evil Overlord...
I will never utter the sentence "But before I kill you, there's just one thing I want to know".

You Might Be A Gamer If...
You tried gaming outside, for that "natural, woodland atmosphere" ...until you found out the hard way about the @%#*! wind, when it blew all of your maps and character sheets away.

Gamer To Avoid
The Stoic - His character has no strong human emotions. He is never terrified, overjoyed, or awestruck. Nothing causes him to change his perspective or develop as a person.

Things I Learned While Gaming
Character descriptions cannot contain two of the following words: Slavic, Tone-deaf, Karaoke, Musician.
