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
Avoid Grimtooth - Don't abuse traps. When traps are overused, they seem like arbitrary attempts to kill characters. The story bogs down when the PCs have to check every door and chest before touching it. Trap placement should be logical. How does the wizard move around in his own tower?

From the RPG Glossary...
Felton's Law - no party is so powerful that a clever trap can't defeat them; originates from "Knights of the Dinner Table".

Gaming Humor

When I Am the Evil Overlord...
If I am fighting with the hero atop a moving platform, have disarmed him, and am about to finish him off and he glances behind me and drops flat, I too will drop flat instead of quizzically turning around to find out what he saw.

You Might Be A Gamer If...
You collect building plans to use as site maps for games.

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
