Helen and I got our asses kicked by a bunch of 8 year olds.  Read about it on our blog!

My brother in law did this, and it's actually pretty deadly.

How 80,000 Oregon residents will never vote for Fine Gael again.  Tears shed, teeth gnashed and milk spilled.

Here's my most recent blog post.  While I'm happy to share other people's political commentary, I tend not to speak about my own thoughts.  This is the first "political" thing I've ever written.  Don't miss a chance to read!

Sounds a little like some if the green party policies.

My group and I are going to be away with a larger group of friends for a week over new year's.  Rather than keep players who aren't members of our group out of the game, I'd like to offer some of the people who don't play with us the opportunity to join in.  I'm thinking of using our last session before we go away to launch the group on a side-quest so that the new players don't need a year's worth of context to catch up. 

Does anyone have any tips on this sort of thing?  How can I best integrate the new players?  And how can I make sure that things flow smoothly?  Thanks!

Let the new people play guest stars. You've got a barkeep in a tavern, let a newbie try the role.

Careful now, Mr Greenwald...

Missing PCs

So last week, my group had our first session for a while - it had been put off time and again, and everyone was ready to go.  About 30 minutes before we were due to start, one of our players called to cancel as he wasn't feeling well.  I didn't want to cancel the session again, and I didn't have his character's stats, so I couldn't have someone else play him through the session.  This presented two problems:

1) The character disappeared during a short-rest.  I've come up with an IC reason for this, but it was a bit hairy for a while.
2) I'd planned the encounters to be tough for a group of 5.  I pulled one or two monsters from each encounter, but I couldn't do that from the last encounter of the session, and we had a few players nearing death before the group triumphed.  I didn't want any player deaths blamed on our missing player, although his feats would have been particularly useful in that final battle.

Do you guys have any good ways of dealing with missing players?  I have a feeling it's something that's going to happen more and more often as summer comes along...

Either way that does not work where the people who get XP only get it when they level up. 3E had benefits to expend XP for other things, 4e does not have that at all

Introduction
I am a twenty-something tech-guy from Ireland.  I like music and books and films and computers in that order.  I enjoy a good beer and a bad joke.  I have played guitar and bass in a number of bands around Dublin for what can only be called 10 years.
