Gaming Tips

Tips for Players
There is always more than one solution to any problem. Don't be afraid to think outside the box. Never fail to follow obvious leads or ask basic questions.

Tips for GameMasters
Don't Be Verbose - Avoid giving long, wordy descriptions of unimportant factors. Don't give a five minute long description of the NPCs exotic sports car, just because you love hot cars. Unless it affects the plot, reveal only the basic details.

From the RPG Glossary...
"He had to go to work" - (also: "his pager went off") Explanation for the whereabouts of a modern character when his player is absent.

Gaming Humor

When I Am the Evil Overlord...
I will make sure I have a clear understanding of who is responsible for what in my organization. For example, if my general screws up I will not draw my weapon, point it at him, say "And here is the price for failure," then suddenly turn and kill some random underling.

You Might Be A Gamer If...
You have a Ph.D. in manipulating point systems to the best effect, even though you failed high school geometry.

Gamer To Avoid
The Cheater - He spends more character points than he has earned, has bags of endless gear, never runs out of arrows, or fudges dice rolls.

Things I Learned While Gaming
I must learn at least one offensive or defensive spell if I'm the sorcerer.
