Gaming Tips

Tips for Players
Learn the rules and setting. Keep a copy of commonly used reference information on hand.

Tips for GameMasters
Vet the Characters - No character is officially in the game until the GM approves it. Make sure the players created their characters properly. Every PC should have a useful role in the party. Look for character concepts that may clash with your main storyline or lead to inter-party conflict.

From the RPG Glossary...
Hexahedron - A 6-sided polyhedron (die), classically used to roll damage and hit points in the Dungeons & Dragons game. The sum of 3d6 (three six-sided die rolls) is also used in many games to generate attributes or make a skill check.

Gaming Humor

When I Am the Evil Overlord...
If I ever talk to the hero on the phone, I will not taunt him. Instead I will say this his dogged perseverance has given me new insight on the futility of my evil ways and that if he leaves me alone for a few months of quiet contemplation I will likely return to the path of righteousness. (Heroes are incredibly gullible in this regard.)

You Might Be A Gamer If...
Your character gets more mail than you do.

Gamer To Avoid
The Munchkin - He is concerned only with his own immediate gratification. If he doesn't win every time, he complains.

Things I Learned While Gaming
The elf's name is not Legolam.
