Awesome answer, thank you. I think I'll try and find a copy of the DJ book and give it a go.

@lisardggY: Granularity in different areas might match up with my style of play. I don't have any specific examples but am curious none the less.

Haha I liked the comedic tone of your answer. I do sometimes use the physical environment to my advantage. I'm sometimes weary of going too far and out-geeking my party. I'm working on controlling the weather -- getting private lessons from Zeus for an arm and a leg (literally). No OOC talk is a good one. I don't think I've ever enforced it -- I'll definitely try. Also, I want to keep my fingers ... but ... anything for the game.
