A perfect gamer is

By:

A very short piece

A perfect gamer… 
   ...is always on time to the game, if not early. The gamer will also inform others ahead of time if they are going to miss a session or be late.
   ... is dedicated to game. When the gamer is at the game, they game. They do not do other things, nor do they distract the others from gaming.
   ...plays well with other gamers, sharing the spotlight and making sure everyone has something to do.
   ...always pays attention to the game. The gamer knows what is going on and is watching for story lines and details.
   ...not only takes the story lines the GM provides, but is pro-active and generates their own story lines.
   ...knows the spirit and the letter of the rules being used for the game. A perfect gamer helps others with those rules, in such a way as not to disrupt the game.

**********Strive to be a perfect gamer**********

I'm going to hang this on my wall. Do you have "A very short piece" for the GM as well?
This does justice to the term good solid idea! Not a word too long, and not a word too short.
Excellent!

There is no such thing as a perfect GM. You can get close, if you can find the Spielberg equivalent of a GM. Generally there are different styles and types of GMs. The GM might be perfect for you, but there are too many.

Okay, I will try.

Not to derail the thread but th comment of Spielberg reminded me or an interview I read with the actress who played Princess Leia. She likened Spielberg's directing style and ability to that of a porn star director. Nearly all he ever told any of the cast was "Harder! With more Emotion next time!" (Not a quality I'd want in a gm lol)

As for the piece itself, it's excellent. Short and easy to remember. It should be printed on the first page of every players handbook for every game ever written.

Which way is he going?

       By: Murometz

Molk Peruda is encountered by the PCs on the second day of their journey west from the salt-choked port of Quyn, as they prepare to explore the jungle.

He appears a gaunt, wolfish man, with matted, dark hair that sprouts from his head in dreadlocks, contrasting with his well-oiled, blue-black, conical beard. His eyes are hidden ebon shards beneath thick arching brows, his nose, crooked, long, and reminiscent of a snout. His mouth is a thin, dark line, his teeth unseen even when he parts his lips to speak.

His skin is the color of tallow, surprising perhaps for a renowned jungle guide, yet his natural helm of dreads and the jungle's canopy keeps the sun from bronzing his originally pale flesh. On his back are tattooed three women from the waist up, side-by-side, each resembling the other but of different ages. This is a tattoo of Molk's mother, sister, and daughter. His wife (don't bring her up to him!) was killed by marauding Qullan years ago, and appears as her own tattoo on his broad but sunken chest.

His feet shockingly are turned around 180 degrees at the ankle, facing towards his back! A curse from a pernicious shaman. Molk walks feet backwards (he's used to it) and walks backwards, forwards. This can be very disconcerting and outright creepy to the PCs as he guides them through the rainforest.

Slung from his back is an archer's quarrel of treated wood carved to resemble a stalking leopard, in his hand a re-curved composite bow of horn and sinew, with a pair of vivid, red eyes, each one painted on the opposite side of the hand-grip. In a leather sheath at his belt, hangs a falchion, its pommel adorned with a curved bird's head and beak.
