Gaming Tips
Tips for Players
Read about the genre and setting in which the campaign takes place. Find out what sort of races, classes, and concepts fit into the genre. Determine how gritty the setting is. Ask how mundane or extraordinary your character's background should be.

Tips for GameMasters
Allow Creativity - Let the players come up with alternate solutions to encounters. They may think of something clever that you didn't. Try to be realistic. The green key may open the green door, but a grenade will probably blast it open too. Few things are more frustrating for a player than trying to guess the GMs one-and-only answer.

From the RPG Glossary...
One-shot game - a game not intended to be continued longer than one session.
Gaming Humor
When I Am the Evil Overlord...
I will not interrogate my enemies in the inner sanctum -- a small hotel well outside my borders will work just as well.

You Might Be A Gamer If...
You have been known to drive to far away places where you paid enormous amounts of money for the privilege of sleeping on floors, eating crap, buying little pewter statues of Gandalf, and meeting dozens of psychopathic members of the alternate (or similar) sex who will follow you around for months, merely for the pleasure of playing with gamers you don't know in small enclosed spaces permeated with the smell of sweat... and then signed up en masse with all of your friends to play in games with gamemasters who you've known since high school.

Gamer To Avoid
The Specialist - He's the world's best at one thing, but is completely useless in all other situations. He completely dominates one scene, then sleeps through the next thirty.
