Gaming Tips

Tips for Players
Read the rules for your character's traits and special abilities. Make sure you understand how they work and when they come into play.

Tips for GameMasters
Define Realism - Explain up front how epic or gritty the setting is. Will the characters need to worry about holding down a job, paying taxes on time, and avoiding parking tickets while being adventurers? Do they need to keep track of every dollar or copper piece they spend? Are you using strict encumbrance rules? Can the players purchase cinematic advantages for their characters? Do they need to start with mundane or extraordinary backgrounds?

From the RPG Glossary...
Spunkmeyer - A character, usually an NPC, created so that it can be killed off almost immediately; originates from "Aliens".

Gaming Humor

When I Am the Evil Overlord...
I will never build only one of anything important. All important systems will have redundant control panels and power supplies. For the same reason I will always carry at least two fully loaded weapons at all times.

You Might Be A Gamer If...
All your cannon-fodder NPCs are named after people who have ticked you off at work.

Gamer To Avoid
The Twink - He manipulates the game system to make his character as powerful as possible. He plays a character of a higher level than the rest of his party, or inherits items and abilities from previous characters.

Things I Learned While Gaming
I am not authorized to start any civil engineering project on the taxpayer's dime.
