The D&D GM Tip Thread

The first rule of any game is: "Above all the purpose of a game is fun." To many times GM's get tied up in the investment they have made in their world. If you can't stand for people to go outside your thoughts for your world, use it for a book. Don't try to force players into your view of your world. Let players role-play their characters as they see them and let them have fun. I am sure that somewhere in the world of Cthullu there is a Pollyanna who wakes up to a sunny carefree world every day, and maybe that is your players character.

Your idea of a high drama horror adventure, may come out more like the Rocky Horror Picture Show, but if the players had fun, it is a success.

The first rule for game masters should be: "My job is to serve fun to my players"
