5 Tips

For several years I've been using the "5 Tips" format for articles aimed at providing advice to my fellow players and dungeon masters. I've covered classes and fantasy races, as well as general DM advice and storytelling tricks.

And since I've put together so many of these numbered lists, I figured it was time to bring them all together in a single archive so my readers could more easily find them.

So let's get started, shall we?

5 Tips For LARPs

I love live action games, but they are their own, unique beast. These are some pieces of advice I'd recommend any LARPer keep in mind the next time they get ready to play.

Miscellaneous 5 Tips

Sometimes I write general "5 Tips" articles that are more meant for general use, rather than talking about a single aspect of a particular game. These are some of those!

Other Numbered Tip Lists

Sometimes I put together lists of tips that are bigger or smaller than the usual 5. But if you're a big fan of tip lists, then these should still hit the spot.
