    As many of you know, I've been absent from the site for a while now. I tried many months ago to be the administrator that this site deserves, but the truth is that I just have too many things going on -- and that isn't likely to change any time soon. So, I have decided that it is time for me to step aside as the primary administrator for Pen & Paper Games.

    Fear not though! In my stead, Matt James will be taking up the mantle of leadership for P&PG. For those of you who aren't familiar with Matt already, he is an award-winning game designer from Washington, DC. His design creds include work for Privateer Press, Paizo, Kobold Press, and Wizards of the Coast. He's also the co-founder of Vorpal Games -- creators of the Red Aegis RPG, and he is the most energetic (borderline manic, really) person I have probably ever had the pleasure of meeting! It is that energy and his extensive network of contacts in the RPG industry that Matt will be bringing to the table to breathe new life into our community.

    As for myself, I'll still be around in a mostly technical role -- handling the back-end administration of P&PG's web-server and infrastructure support.

    With that, please welcome Matt James as the new administrator for Pen & Paper Games!

    Now that we've settled in with the new chat room software and I've finally managed to get the dice roller stable, I've started working on expanding the dice rolling functions beyond the mundane roll-x-die-y-times. The first and most requested feature was for exploding dice. And what red blooded gamer WOULDN'T want dice that exploded?!

    The syntax is simple. In chat, add the letter "e" to your dice roll, like this:

    /roll 2d6e

    If any of the dice rolled are maxed, it will roll again and add the total to the die. If that rerolled die is also maxed, it will keep rolling. For instance, 2d6e could result in: 3 and 15, where the 15 was a result of 6, 6, and 3. ...
