Gaming Tips

Tips for Players
NPCs may leave a scene but they never leave the game. You can build an ongoing relationship with them, good or bad. Some NPCs can become patrons, teachers, or mentors.

Tips for GameMasters
Have Variety - An adventure can include action, puzzles, combat, exploration, and social interaction. One game session may have 80% exploration and 20% combat, while the next could have 100% social interaction. A good variety helps keep all of your players entertained.

From the RPG Glossary...
"Marines, we are leaving!" - Exclamation often heard from players who are retreating or quitting a mission; often used as reaction to a particularly grim encounter; quoting "Aliens".

Gaming Humor

When I Am the Evil Overlord...
I will treat any beast which I control through magic or technology with respect and kindness. Thus if the control is ever broken, it will not immediately come after me for revenge.

You Might Be A Gamer If...
The owners of local hobby stores take your checks without ID because they know where you live.

Gamer To Avoid
The Cheater - He spends more character points than he has earned, has bags of endless gear, never runs out of arrows, or fudges dice rolls.

Things I Learned While Gaming
I will not load any Gatling weapon with nothing but paint rounds.
