Gaming Tips

Tips for Players
Don't hoard puzzle pieces. Some solutions are only obvious after every party member shares his clues. Facts that seem trivial to you may be important to another player.

Tips for GameMasters
Flesh Out NPCs - Every NPC should have a slightly different look and feel. Important NPCs should have different personalities, motivations and goals. Try not to stereotype your NPCs - villains don't always lie and heroes don't always tell the truth. Remember that a character may try to contact one of your NPCs again in the future.

From the RPG Glossary...
World of Lightness - Derogatory term for gamers and games that ignore the established World of Darkness milieu in favor of a more friendly environment, or descriptive of a WOD game that is insufficiently dark, violent, or brutal.

Gaming Humor

When I Am the Evil Overlord...
If I absolutely must ride into battle, I will certainly not ride at the forefront of my Legions of Terror, nor will I seek out my opposite number among his army.

You Might Be A Gamer If...
You alternate between referring to your characters in the first and the third person... and none of your friends gets confused.

Gamer To Avoid
The Ace - He creates the epitome of the multi-class character. He wants to be the best at everything. If another player has a shtick, he wants it too.

Things I Learned While Gaming
I cannot name my character Xagyg or any anagram thereof.
