Candidate Wins Election By Literally Rolling A Natural 20

Let’s set the scene: two candidates, Larry Enos Jr. and Milan “Pete” Petrovich were running for the seat in last month’s elections, and each earned 51 votes of the 110 votes casts in the election. (There were 147 registered voters eligible to cast ballots, which is a darned high turnout.)

As per California state law, such ties must be decided by the drawing of lots: a random contest of some sort. Check out the full story here.

GM Tips For Handling Troubling Topics at The Table

As contributor Rick Heinz points out, “There is no right way to handle tough issues in games, but there damn well is a wrong way—and that’s ignoring it. While gaming is one of our greatest forms of escapism, storytelling and tabletop gaming are (by their very nature) multi-party events. Your local tabletop game may be filled with like-minded individuals, but if you’re running larger events or at cons, you’ve to handle a wider variety of people.”
