North Kingdoms: the Search for Shotey
After the death of Shotey, the companions gathered his body in Nymeria's raven cloak and set forth to find the Witch of Oakrest who had sent them to kill the ancient spider, Goliant. Perhaps they reasoned, they could ask her to bring back his spirit from ac...

RIP Hitch. Watch this if you want to see him defending George W. Bush and giving the finger to the audience. In the words of Joe Klein (the best thing I've ever read by Joe Klein from Andrew Sullivan):

"Every moment in his presence was joyous, even when we were arguing; he was wildly entertaining, by turns provocative and gracious. He may have been among the last of his kind–truly, a thought-full man of letters, rather than of “takes” and sound bites. I will miss the joy of reading him, and chatting with him at parties; but more, I worry that Hitch is taking with him a world, a world of contemplative reading and writing–the very opposite of what I am doing right now, posting an immediate reaction to his death on this blog. He lived life perpetually intoxicated, not just by booze (he was happily soused during our English debate), but by books and words and thoughts and ideas. I will miss him, and all the excesses he cherished. We need more such, and are left with less."

Best two articles I've read in years on what's going on with the political parties. First, David Frum on the Republicans.
Some of my Republican friends ask if I’ve gone crazy. I say: Look in the mirror.

Why do you have a problem with the phrase Axis of Evil? Do you hate W? ;)

blog update
The problem I've noticed with my hands off style and seat of my pants DMing is that the players lose track of all the campaign details and plotlines I put out there. Players normally can't even track the 1-3 major NPCs they interact with, but they do rememb...

Introduce a content element that might cause one of your adventurers to go mute.

That happened to a player in my game and now she jots down all the little bits in case she needs to write a question out later.

Then just forget that you put the thing in there for that particular reason.

Oakrest
After emerging from their encounter with the spider's of the forest, the companions entered the town of Oakrest. At first their way was barred by a guardsman, who was killed for asking for a bribe. (Right, I think so? He may have just been bribed...) . The ...

The less delusional democrats -
If every Democratic president disappoints, maybe there’s something wrong with our expectations. Tough love from a fellow traveler.

Tell Congress not to censor the internet!
Avaaz - Save the Internet: http://goo.gl/gF7hE | fightforthefuture.org/pipa

"Google knows it. Viacom knows it. The Chamber of Commerce knows it. Internet democracy groups know it. BoingBoing knows it. But, the Internet hasn't been told yet -- we're going to get blown away by the end of the year. The worst bill in Internet history is about to become law. Law is very real here in the United States and legal language is often different than stated intentions -- this law would give government and corporations the power to block sites like BoingBoing over infringing links on at least one webpage posted by their users. Believe the EFF, Public Knowledge, Google when they say this bill is about much more than copyright, it's about the Internet and free speech everywhere.

The MPAA, RIAA, Hollywood knows that they have been flying in CEOs of as many companies as possible, recruiting people to get petition signups at malls in California, and here's the big point-- they know they have gotten their message through to Congress -- the worst bill in Internet history, the one where government and their corporations get unbelievable power to take down sites, threaten payment processors into stopping payment to sites on a blacklist, and throw people in jail for posting ordinary content is about to pass before the end of this year. The only thing that is going to stop Hollywood from owning the Internet and everything we do, is if there is a big surprise Internet backlash starting right now.

PROTECT IP (S. 968)/SOPA (HR. 3261) creates the first system for Internet censorship - this bill has sweeping provisions that give the government and corporations leeway and legal cover for taking down sites "by accident," mistakenly, or for NOT doing "enough" to protect the interests of Hollywood. These bills that are moving very quickly through Congress and can pass before Christmas aim to give the US government and corporations the ability to block sites over infringing links posted by their users and give ISPs the release to take any means to block peoples' sites, including slowing down your connection. That's right, some say this bill is a workaround to net neutrality and is bigger than net neutrality." via: http://goo.gl/pTTbC
