Gaming Tips

Tips for Players
Check the character creation guidelines presented by your GM. Make sure that you understand how many points you have to spend, and any house rules he may be using.

Tips for GameMasters
Party Harmony - Don't allow inter-party conflict to create bad feelings between players, or turn the focus away from the plot. A roleplaying game is not a first person shooter. Even a party of rogues can find logical reasons to be civil to each other.

From the RPG Glossary...
Play-by-email - (also: PBM, PBEM) A game play style where each round, action or scene is communicated amongst all participants through e-mail, best suited to games with turn-based play.

Gaming Humor

When I Am the Evil Overlord...
The hero is not entitled to a last kiss, a last cigarette, or any other form of last request.

You Might Be A Gamer If...
You consider Altoids, ranch-flavored Doritos, Oreos, Coca-Cola and pepperoni & onion pizza a balanced diet (or even an acceptable combination).

Gamer To Avoid
The Stoic - His character has no strong human emotions. He is never terrified, overjoyed, or awestruck. Nothing causes him to change his perspective or develop as a person.

Things I Learned While Gaming
Any character who has a sensitivity training center named after him will be taken away.
