Gaming Tips

Tips for Players
If you need to take a break from the game or stop for a meal, give the GM a little warning so that he can find a good stopping point in the action.

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.

From the RPG Glossary...
Monkey's Paw Rule - if a character gets a wish, the GM will make every attempt to pervert the wording of the wish, in order to make the result undesirable or harmful.

Gaming Humor

When I Am the Evil Overlord...
The artifact which is the source of my power will not be kept on the Mountain of Despair beyond the River of Fire guarded by the Dragons of Eternity. It will be in my safe-deposit box. The same applies to the object which is my one weakness.

You Might Be A Gamer If...
You've had a heated debate about how your paladin could beat the alien in Predator 2.

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

Things I Learned While Gaming
They do not make heavy weapons in pump action.
