The gentlemans guide to storyplay:

"The most important thing when storyplaying is
 the other participants - treat them with respect"

Culture:
1) Be CURIOUS, awake and present.
2) There is no road without HUMOR.

Character Creation:
1) Your character is your MUSE.
2) Finish your character IN PLAY. 

Performance:
1) EVOKE the spirit of PLAYFULLNESS.
2) SHOW your performance. Don't tell IT.

Coordination:
1) LISTEN and ACCEPT before you RESPOND.
2) ACTIVATE and ASSIST your fellow players.

Storytelling:
1) Don't hold back IDEAS, new ones will come.
2) Never deus ex machina or edit in a STORY.

Conflict:
1) Be A SPORT, be gentle and be a man.
2) There is CREATIVITY in tension

Meta:
1) Storyplay is ENTERTAINMENT.
2) Know the rules of the GAME.

And what ever you do "keep it SIMPLE and make it FUN",
COMPLEXITY will emerge from interacting with the simple.
