Gaming Tips

Tips for Players
Ask your GM before buying any unusual traits or skills. Your choices may have an impact on the story. No character is officially in the game until the GM approves it.

Tips for GameMasters
Don't Abuse Power - Players enjoy a logical, balanced game. Avoid making arbitrary decisions. You are the interface between the players and a virtual world. It's not your world, existing simply to show off your creativity as a designer. It is the setting in which enjoyable stories should take place.

From the RPG Glossary...
Second Best Rule - if the PCs find a legendary one-of-a-kind weapon, their nemesis will have one that is even more powerful.

Gaming Humor

When I Am the Evil Overlord...
I will keep a special cache of low-tech weapons and train my troops in their use. That way -- even if the heroes manage to neutralize my power generator and/or render the standard-issue energy weapons useless -- my troops will not be overrun by a handful of savages armed with spears and rocks.

You Might Be A Gamer If...
You own your own weight in gaming books.

Gamer To Avoid
The Superstar - He wants all of the adventures and plots to center around his character. He can't share the spotlight.

Things I Learned While Gaming
I am neither the pagan god nor goddess of fertility.
