Gaming Tips

Tips for Players
Try to significantly help further the main plot, or resolve a sub-plot. Don't make another player do all the work.

Tips for GameMasters
Don't Break Them - Remember that the characters are simulations of real people. Don't be sadistic and push them too far. Prolonged exposure to horror, pain, fear, torture, or misery will break anyone.

From the RPG Glossary...
Dark lord - A stereotypical villain who is dark, menacing, and obviously seeks the complete subjugation of everything, often without a motive or simply because he is severely maladjusted.

Gaming Humor

When I Am the Evil Overlord...
When I create a multimedia presentation of my plan designed so that my five-year-old advisor can easily understand the details, I will not label the disk "Project Overlord" and leave it lying on top of my desk.

You Might Be A Gamer If...
You take notes from books for character histories.

Gamer To Avoid
The Joker - His sense of humor comes up at inappropriate times, or isn't considered funny by others. He destroys the mood of a scene by cracking jokes or making off-color comments, either IC or OOC.

Things I Learned While Gaming
My acrobat cannot balance on the warlord's head for more than one round.
