Gaming Tips
Tips for Players
Sometimes, villains tell the truth. They also mix fact with falsehood. Listen carefully. "Good guys" may lie or simply be mistaken. Don't believe every word they say.

Tips for GameMasters
Dice Don't Rule - The dice are not more important than the story. In general, it's good to follow the rules and rolls, to make a consistent and fair game world. However, don't let a good or bad roll stand in the way of an entertaining story climax. Characters should die because of bad decisions, not bad luck.

From the RPG Glossary...
Total party kill - (also: TPK) what happens when, in the course of an RPG adventure, the entire party of PCs gets killed; while many games permit other PCs to resurrect deceased comrades in some fashion, a TPK usually results in the players making new characters or the end of the campaign.
Gaming Humor
When I Am the Evil Overlord...
I won't require high-ranking female members of my organization to wear a stainless-steel bustier. Morale is better with a more casual dress-code. Similarly, outfits made entirely from black leather will be reserved for formal occasions.

You Might Be A Gamer If...
You are unable to walk past the latest game supplement without leafing through it, even though you know it's going to be bad.

Gamer To Avoid
The Whiner - He can't stand it when things don't go his way. He feels picked on when his character suffers from a botched roll or takes damage.

Things I Learned While Gaming
I cannot buy any animal in groups of 100 or over.
