Gaming Tips

Tips for Players
Participate in all aspects of the game. Do not force others to do all of the negotiating, monster slaying, tactical planning, or puzzle solving. Help out when you can.

Tips for GameMasters
Be Their Eyes - Pay attention to the character's passive detection abilities. Don't make them ask what they sense every scene. If a character can see ghosts at any time, without using a device or casting a spell, check to see if he notices whenever one comes within line of sight.

From the RPG Glossary...
Last Moment Rule - The PCs will arrive just in the nick of time to prevent a villain from executing his plan.

Gaming Humor

When I Am the Evil Overlord...
My dungeon cells will not be furnished with objects that contain reflective surfaces or anything that can be unraveled.

You Might Be A Gamer If...
You compulsively mail or ship things to people (sometimes at great expense) because whatever it is reminds you of their character.

Gamer To Avoid
The Powergamer - His goal is to have the most powerful character in the game. He takes advantage of rules loopholes, and plays only the strongest races and classes. He is too competitive to enjoy the story or share the rewards.

Things I Learned While Gaming
There is no Dwarven God of groin shots.
