Gaming Tips
Tips for Players
Read about the genre and setting in which the campaign takes place. Find out what sort of races, classes, and concepts fit into the genre. Determine how gritty the setting is. Ask how mundane or extraordinary your character's background should be.

Tips for GameMasters
Allow Creativity - Let the players come up with alternate solutions to encounters. They may think of something clever that you didn't. Try to be realistic. The green key may open the green door, but a grenade will probably blast it open too. Few things are more frustrating for a player than trying to guess the GMs one-and-only answer.

Gamer To Avoid
