Gaming Tips

Tips for Players
When spending experience points, give the GM a list of attributes, skills, and traits that have changed. Keep your character sheet up to date. It's a good idea to give the GM an updated copy.

Tips for GameMasters
Detail Changes - When using a homebrew system or house rules, make sure to document them carefully. Explain the changes to your players before they create characters. Try to playtest before putting new rules into effect, and be prepared to listen to feedback.

From the RPG Glossary...
Tamed Wilderness Rule - There is always a road between any two cities.

Gaming Humor

When I Am the Evil Overlord...
All naive, busty tavern wenches in my realm will be replaced with surly, world-weary waitresses who will provide no unexpected reinforcement and/or romantic subplot for the hero or his sidekick.

You Might Be A Gamer If...
You could paper your bathroom in different versions of just ONE character.

Gamer To Avoid
The Wallflower - He tries not to be noticed by NPCs and won't interact with them. He finds it difficult to take action without guidance.

Things I Learned While Gaming
I am to remind my GM that he must never, ever give my paladin a dire boar for a mount again.
