Gaming Tips

Tips for Players
Contribute to the game session by hosting the game, bringing snacks, helping set up, supplying game materials, running adventures, or cleaning up afterward.

Tips for GameMasters
Check Game Balance - Make sure that the PCs are equally powerful when the game begins. Compare the PCs to the monsters, traps, and NPCs you plan to put in their path. Do they have the power, skills, and equipment they'll need for a chance to succeed?

From the RPG Glossary...
Grill-fest - Any combat involving roasting alive a large group of targets, often by fireball, dragon breath, burning oil, or plasma cannon.

Gaming Humor

When I Am the Evil Overlord...
I will not design my Main Control Room so that every workstation is facing away from the door.

You Might Be A Gamer If...
You feel guilty if you have more than one character at a time.

Gamer To Avoid
The Loony - Similar to the Joker, his sense of humor damages the plot through bizarre actions. When asked to stun the ogre, rather than casting a spell, he runs up and kisses it.

Things I Learned While Gaming
Superfluous Man is not a viable superhero concept.
