About


What can I put here that isn’t obvious?

  1. I’m Paul. I live in Canberra, Australia.
  2. I play D&D. Rather a lot really.
  3. Used to be a christian, now I am persuaded that there are no invisible, immaterial persons of any degree, neither fairies nor gods.
  4. Work in computing, but see my work blog for that.

Mid-40s – I remember the 80’s, when “We Built This City” came out. Never married, no kids, no goals, no plans: just a gen-Xer who life passed by.

    Good morning (I belive it is in Astrailia right now, anyway), I’m a DM running Age of Worms across the pond in the Great White North. I stumbled across the posts of your characters adventures and was wondering if you could help me with the one problem I’ve come across so far. In your Week 9 post, http://www.paulmurray.id.au/ageofworms/week9.html, you say that if a DM would like to know what you “should have done” to email and ask. Well, I was at wits end on how to run this and was thinking of doing the same thing you did, but if you have a better way, I’d love to hear it! I know it was a long time ago, (my group fractured after I collected all the Dungeon Mags [damn woman drove two of ’em apart] needed and I just found a new circle.) but if you remember, I would be indebted forever! Thank you in advance for the help!

      Ooh – that *was* a while ago! From memory:

      What I should have done is have the kenkus hide and wait (prepare an action), shoot and *then* move. So instead of “here I am” and the party then clobbering them, it would be shoot and then run away, and the party would have to find them. Even better to have the shooting kenku retreat to a location where multiple other kenkus were waiting to take a shot. To be fair – plan out the ambush points to start with.

      Remember – shadowy illumination everywhere, so they can hide anywhere in the place. Perhaps to give the players a sporting chance, the fleeing kenku that they are following would give a little bird call to the kenkus ahead, and the players would eventually work out that that means there are more around the corner. But the maze should turn into a nerve-wracking “No, you go round the corner first!” situation.

      Oh – and good luck running the campaign and all that. It’s nice to know that my website is helping out someone. Feel free to pinch the images, if you want.

    Hey Paul, just read your blog on Parkway Church Canberra ( it is now Eternity Church) not much better. I hope you give me the curticey of reading my message to you. I rease it’s an old blog but I’m responding to it anyway! I’ve sat through a Parkway service so I can identify with some of the things you mentioned in your blog!
    I guess “The Word of God” is true when it says that people are not perfect only God is perfect. Man! It would be great to experience the perfect Church service! Instead of all the hilarity (hope I spelled that right)! Christ is in us ( His Spirit joined to our spirit) We are now sons of God, everything else is outside of Christ ! Even the formalities of Church services. Paul ! Don’t give up on who you are in Christ just because of some lousy church service & lame people you have come across. Christ in you, The Hope of Glory. Eternity Church, Parkway or Hillsong, how can they turn you away from God? Paul, really? reconnect with Jesus who loves you. You are His child & He is your Father. Together you could change the world at least perhaps a Church Service. If you could make it a better one, I would definitely visit 🙂 Really! The world outside of Christ is not a better one & I would rather suck it up in Church Services … as I do, with all the imperfections that man brings because that reminds me of how Great God’s love is, that He gave up His life for us losers to give us an inheritance that we don’t deserve! That’s How amaizing Gods love is for us Paul! Your smart but not smarter than God & you can not run or hide from God! Bless you Paul
