I'm a web developer currently living in Santiago, Chile. I'm always trying to improve my skills. I earn my daily bread on PHP / (My|PostGre)SQL / JavaScript development, working with CakePHP, PrototypeJS, Script.aculo.us and jQuery, but I'm also experimenting with Django. I'm interested in many areas of programming and in learning new programming languages.

I'm also a budding roleplayer and GM. I have mastered D&D 4E and Numenera, and love the job. Find me at @adrianovaroli or @FailedGM.

comment What can I leave out of a first session?
Do you give the players fate/persona points for the first mission? I thought they could only earn them after a mission. I see that the pregens start with 1 FP and 1 PP.

comment How do I prevent retreating to rest and heal from being tedious?
None of the -great- answers so far addresses the issue in a non-punitive way. Aren't there mechanics in D&D5E that encourage people to keep fighting?

Hey. A monk could bite both her hands off, and spit them at her enemies. Wait, no. That'd be undignified.

Can you quote the book re: "The expectation is actually that you should NOT stop after one turn each"? I didn't get that impression from my reading.

True, but then I have to know that before planning. I love improv as much as the next guy, but I like to prepare the stuff I'm improvising around.

Right. The Carcassonne quip was just as an example. Still, if I can (typically) fit two sets of turns in 4 hours, that's what I wanted to know. And it's true that the mission in the book is just a setup.

No problem with finishing early. I just want to know that will happen. I have to plan the session, and my players expect a certain time. Some travel an hour to get to my place. Sure, I can crack open Carcassonne, but...
