Gaming Tips
Tips for Players
Avoid cliches when creating your character's personality and history. If you include one of these concepts, you may be cliche: orphan, amnesiac, assassin, dark and mysterious, panther pet, silent type, never retreats, cultural rebel, infamous, piercing blue eyes, very sexy, black leather clothes, black hair and pale skin, or very unusual name.

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...
Pull a Tolkien - to include unnecessary or gratuitous descriptions of a physical location.
 
Gaming Humor
When I Am the Evil Overlord...
When I employ people as advisors, I will occasionally listen to their advice.

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
Druids are not against my religion.
