Gaming Tips

Tips for Players
At the end of an adventure, not all of the implications of an encounter may have been revealed. Review your notes. See if you may have overlooked something, or finally have all the pieces necessary to solve a mystery.

Tips for GameMasters
Move the Spotlight - Give every character a chance to prove themselves by making them the focus of a subplot. A good way to do this is to bring up a disadvantage, a contact, or something dark from their background. Not only will they get an emotional kick, they'll have a chance to earn bonus XP. They'll also come to appreciate the extra work and stress endured by a party leader.

From the RPG Glossary...
"Wax on... wax off" - Phrase spoken (with appropriate hand motions) in response to a martial arts maneuver, either to congratulate a successful maneuver or to mock a disastrous one; quoting "Karate Kid".

Gaming Humor

When I Am the Evil Overlord...
If one of my dungeon guards begins expressing concern over the conditions in the beautiful princess' cell, I will immediately transfer him to a less people-oriented position.

You Might Be A Gamer If...
You've ever designed your own character sheets.

Gamer To Avoid
The Combat-Monger - He couldn't care less about the story, and doesn't pay attention until the fighting begins.

Things I Learned While Gaming
I'm not allowed to blow all of my skill points on 1 point professional skills.
