  • The best gaming advice: Talk to each other like reasonable adults.
  • Dice fudging is bullshit.
  • Ignoring rules is a sign that you're playing the wrong game.
  • Rather than hack on the rules of a game, stop to consider that a different game might better do what you want.
  • Rule Zero is bullshit.
  • System matters.
  • “Wubba Wubba!”

    Brevity is characteristic of okeefe's answers. … It's a complete solution to the problem, in a small package. —SevenSidedDie

comment Is there a fantasy RPG system which does not try to be old-school?
@Anaphory This always comes down to “more rules-heavy than what”? In any case, Dungeon World's GM rules and advice definitely scratch my “no heavy burden on the DM” itch.
