Downtime: Christmas episodes suck. Y'know what. Was anyone ever happy when they were watching He-Man and it's all like, snowing in Eternia, and Skeletor is stealing presents or some shit and then He-Man saves the day, but all the presents are gone, but then there's a twinkling in the sky and ho-ho-ho and all the presents are back in the little Eternian bugger's houses. No.

Apologies for the later than normal posting of the episode, but I was gaming last night instead of working on the podcast, so it's okay.

Exp: A narrow miss on talking for ages about The Thing starts us out, but then Eoin reviews Sentinels of the Multiverse, one of those non-collectible card game/board game type games with super heroes and battles on the moon. Also included is a short course on Irish customs & excise law from the point of view of several different people who don't know Irish customs & excise law.

Per: Liam, Cillian, Ice-cream and humbug provide valuable, up-to-date and correct information about upcoming and ongoing gaming related events in and around Dublin. Does anybody read these things? Help me. Mentioned are an upcoming IGA pub-quiz, a soon to be starting steampunk LARP, and other things too.

Exp: We somehow end off as though we had spent the whole episode talking about a fictional board games convention, but we weren't. We were talking about Blood Bowl: Team Manager. Also, the GW site is gay (used here to mean gay), and I can't seem to linky without needing to pick your country first. Anyway:

Con: Rain, floods, hotel changes, things you didn't know about L5R. Idiotic dice games, deck building, mangled arms. Gaelcon.

Int: Dominicon is coming up this weekend, and we take a look at what is going to be going on. I felt sorry for Graham when he snatched the page off me and read out a couple of blurbs, so I stayed up all night editing with computers and chemicals and things to make him sound better than I had.

Downtime: Today's episode is a little late because of Bacardi and repeated blows to both arms. And Gaelcon. I looked it up and there's precedent. Also, the file size is now less humongous than the last few have been. Liam, Cillian, Graham and humbug have a bit of a chat about games they'd like to see.

Downtime: Shane told me to be sure to note anything that was even close to sexual innuendo as a non-linky line in the show notes, but I'm not going to give him one. We stay on topic in talking about character sheets, some of which are:

And a link to a long running internet character sheet guy that we didn't mention, but is still great:

And a formerly awesome site for character sheets that is now hit and miss (mostly miss) and with ads and junk:
