The Leprecon in Dublin

LepreconI will be appearing at Leprecon — the 31st premiere Irish Gaming Convention held this March 12th through 14th or 2010 at Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland.

I’ll be bringing with me a FEW copies of XDM: Xtreme Dungeon Mastery and be performing a fierce Killer Breakfast for any chancers muking about. We’ll also be doing a DragonHearth podcast from Dublin so sure you’ll be listening to that!

So if you happen to be in Dublin on these dates, we’ll be glad to see you, sign a book for you and blather on a bit. And I’ll be working hard over the next month on how many polite ways I might say, “Thank you, but I’ll not share a Pint of the Black Stuff as I never drink alcohol.” I doubt there is an Irish translation of this phrase that will properly work.

Erin go Brágh!

    Here are the phonetics for:

    Thank you: Guh rev mah agg utt

    I can’t find the pronunciation of the other two, but, here are some other choices.

    I would like a glass of water: Ba mhaith liom gloinne uisce “bah wah ly-um glinne-eh ish-geh”

    or

    I would like a glass of lemonade: Ba mhaith liom gloinne liomainéide. “bah wah ly-um glinne-eh lim-un-ay-dje”

    Here’s another you might find useful:
    Cá bhfuil leithreas na bhféar? “kah will LEH-riss na vahr” – Where is the Men’s Room?
