Looking For Group  - 
 
Hi all, looking for more players for a group in the DC metro area. We're just starting to get into Fate and our gaming group is about to lose several players. We're pretty flexible about location in the area as we're already spread all over it, and days/times are pretty flexible as well -- we roll with whatever consensus we reach. That said, we typically play for extended sessions on weekends. If you're interested, reply here or shoot me an email! We're looking for 2 or 3 additional players to grow our group back up to its usual size (6ish consistent players).

We'd love for you to join us for a session or two some time Fred :). I forgot Evil Hat was local to the area.

Fate Accelerated Edition (FAE)  - 
 
In my FAE session, I noticed that I felt really awkward about compels. I felt like I was really forcing aspects or just handing out compels for (kinda) free. Does anyone else tend to feel this way, and does anyone have any advice for a new Fate GM?

Compels seem like something that GMs and players have been doing for a long time but no one realized they could tie them to characters (or if they were not rewarding for doing them). Countless GMs have had a strap break or a pack slip off someone and down a ravine ; but didn't realize they could say "it's because your 'clumsy' or because you always 'run your gear ragged'.

Just started blogging. Been meaning to do this for a while, but never did out of laziness. My first post is on recent frustrations with Haskell and C++.
I should probably open this with a caveat that Haskell's interop story with C++ isn't quite as bad as it's made out to be. Yes, GHC can't compile and link directly against a C++ library, but there aren't many languages that can. Once C wrappers are present for the library, it's a relatively ...

Fate Accelerated Edition (FAE)  - 
 
I'm running an FAE one shot for the very first time tonight. None of the players have ever played Fate, and I'm pretty sure most of them have barely heard of it. They're all Pathfinder players and just now beginning to role-play more than roll-play. Any suggestions to make tonight as fun as possible?

Well, that sounded like things worked out. Have fun first, worry about the rules later ;)

Ordered their shrimp wrap and jalapeño poppers. Wound up with food poisoning. Would not recommend ordering food from this place.
