4e-splosion

I got an idea for a one-shot D&D 4e adventure, and my brain insisted that I put all other thought processes aside and do that instead.

Which is why I haven't posted much lately, because over the last few days I have made 18 different PCs for the players to choose from, sorted out and statted up the combat encounters, developed a variant setting and cosmology, and figured out how to parse the atrociously designed XML spat out by the DDI character generator into something simpler and cleaner, because the default character sheets are fugly and horrid.

Also because I am completely insane.

I'm thinking I'm gonna run it more than once, just to justify the investment of time and effort...
ever so slightly mad

Absurdity

I think I have officially gone Way Overboard on the format conversion thing. On the plus side, I now know how to parse XML in perl and how to color text in HTML such that Word will do the things I want with it.

Green Wing looks to be providing us with a whole new set of inside joke references, so if I start spouting incomprehensible non-sequiturs, that's probably what it is.

...

Moreso than usual, I mean.

Shut it!
