Gaming Tips

Tips for Players
Discuss your ideas for a character concept with the GM. You may not get as much time in the spotlight if your concept doesn't fit in well with the storyline. Avoid making "lone wolf", immoral, obtuse, or annoying characters.

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...
Gamer crack - Derogatory nickname for Magic: The Gathering, in reference to its expense and addictive qualities.

Gamer To Avoid
