Gaming Tips

Tips for Players
Read the rules for your character's traits and special abilities. Make sure you understand how they work and when they come into play.

Tips for GameMasters
Tailor the Game - Run a genre and style of game that the majority of your players will enjoy. If all of your players love beer and pretzel games, don't run stories with deep moral or philosophical meaning. If they live for hack-n-slash, don't waste your time coming up with clever traps, intricate puzzles, or NPC encounters with social implications.

From the RPG Glossary...
Smoking Morleys - keeping secrets, being secretive, spying, or having a clandestine meeting; originates from "The X-Files".

Gaming Humor

When I Am the Evil Overlord...
No matter how attractive certain members of the rebellion are, there is probably someone just as attractive who is not desperate to kill me. Therefore, I will think twice before ordering a prisoner sent to my bedchamber.

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 pave anything.
