  19. Play a game in the dark (attached photo shows what it might look like. A chance to finally break out some glow in the dark dice! Elvish glow in the dark dice like these or maybe dice that glow under a black light like this; also see my earlier tip on red-lit GM screens for playing in the dark
  20. Completely master a ’complex’ RPG system (I generally get OK at playing or running a system but I haven’t played any modern system long enough to learn the rules, powers, spells, feats, etc. like the back of my hand. I envy those GMs and Players who have such system mastery).
  21. Come dressed as your character.
