Player Advice

Learn tips to help you get more out of your RPG experience.

Bringing Your Characters to Life star
Want to make your RPG characters seem more real? Could you use a few tips on how to make your favorite hero or villain come alive? Drop over here for a few quick pointers on that very topic.

Feeling Out an RPG Group star
Joining a new gamer group? Enthusiasm for the game isn't sufficient if the group itself isn't in line with what you enjoy. There are many things to think about when choosing whether or not to join. Here's four criteria you can use to test drive that new RPG group.

Finding Local Gamers star
Moving into a new area can be tough enough, let alone if there isn't a strong gaming community. How do you find the gamers you know are there?

Handling RPG Character Death star
As players, we know that our characters can die. But how do we handle the loss of the time we spent building up the character? By working the system!

Influence and Control During RPGs star
The other players may frustrate you, as well as calls made by the GM, but there's a big difference between what's within your control and what isn't. Don't try to force the game into what you want it to be. This article shows you what you can do about irritating GM calls and obnoxious players.

Quick Character Personas star
Need a quick character personality? Borrow one from the Zodiac!

Reskinning Your Character star
RPGs are about imagination: why not extend your character's backstory into some actual game-play customization?

Sniffing Out a Railroaded Plot star
The bartender. Their patron. Maybe even the cat. One of these creatures is inexplicably invulnerable. Inexplicably in the game world anyway. Outside the game it's called railroading. In different ways it haunts game tables all over. Here's how to tell if your adventure is on rails or not.

Tarot Spread for Character Creation star
I provide a sample spread and demonstration of how to use a divination (or tarot) deck to help spark your imagination to create a character and back story.
