Gaming Tips

Tips for Players
At the end of an adventure, not all of the implications of an encounter may have been revealed. Review your notes. See if you may have overlooked something, or finally have all the pieces necessary to solve a mystery.

Tips for GameMasters
Have a Framework - Not every adventure needs to be completely fleshed out, however, you need a framework. The adventure needs to have a purpose, such as finding a lost ruin, recovering an artifact, meeting an important NPC, defeating a monster, or discovering a vital clue. Come up with one or more encounters which will lead the PCs toward that goal.

From the RPG Glossary...
Endless Backpack Rule - PCs can carry an unlimited amount of treasure in their packs, without becoming encumbered.

Gaming Humor

When I Am the Evil Overlord...
If my doomsday device happens to come with a reverse switch, as soon as it has been employed it will be melted down and made into limited-edition commemorative coins.

You Might Be A Gamer If...
You watch war documentaries with GURPS Vehicles so you can tell how much damage the 4-inch naval gun using an APX shell does.

Gamer To Avoid
The Lackey - He never comes up with ideas or puzzle solutions. He only participates by helping with someone else's plan.

Things I Learned While Gaming
My epic level character cannot take on the minor goblin menace to his country just to stay sharp.
