Gaming Tips

Tips for Players
An enjoyable game is as much the responsibility of the players as it is of the GM. The purpose of roleplaying is to create an entertaining story. Participation is essential.

Tips for GameMasters
Limit Cake Walks - Without a sense of challenge, the players won't feel that they have accomplished something amazing when they succeed. The occasional easy mission can make the PCs feel powerful and show them how far they've progressed. If every mission is easy, there's no thrill of victory.

From the RPG Glossary...
Spell tree - (also: spell progression, spell chart) A game system where spells can be learned by a character only after prerequisite spells have been learned. In some systems, a minimum level of advancement or experience is also required.

Gaming Humor

When I Am the Evil Overlord...
I will never build only one of anything important. All important systems will have redundant control panels and power supplies. For the same reason I will always carry at least two fully loaded weapons at all times.

You Might Be A Gamer If...
You keep having dreams where you are your character... and you think it is neat, rather than consulting a professional.

Gamer To Avoid
The Twink - He manipulates the game system to make his character as powerful as possible. He plays a character of a higher level than the rest of his party, or inherits items and abilities from previous characters.

Things I Learned While Gaming
I am not allowed to rub the monk's head for luck. I am not allowed to rub any part of the elf chick for any reason.
