So this is my official speech when players *right before in-character briefing*:
Hi my name is Venus/LadyO and I am going to be your GM today. Thanks for coming to play!
I have three outstanding rules when you play at my table:
1) Please don't lie, cheat, or steal OUT-of-character. IN-character is on a case by case basis with consequences.
2) I have no GM screen, what you see me roll is what you get. I apologize if I crit you in advance. I ask that all players do the same and allow you fellow players to celebrate in your critical and cry with your failures.
3) Although I am pretty well-versed in the ways of Pathfinder, I am not a rules specialist. So in matters of life or death, I will stop and check a rule to ensure fairness. Otherwise, I am going to make a ruling and keep things going and we can follow up on the rules detailing a situation on a break.
