xposted all over

Friend of mine is turning 30 tomorrow, we're all meeting at his house and going out after. He says he wants me to run a quick one-shot game. There will be 3 or 4 players and I need a game I can finish in 3 or 4 hours. Any ideas? I think I'm gonna pre-roll characters so we we can just jump right in and start.

called shot rule?

does anybody know the 3.5 rule for called shots? i think i'm gonna do a night of the living dead thing for my one shot game tomorrow. what i plan on doing is, normal damage will slow zombies down, but to kill them you have to hit the head. either a coup de grace, which i know the rule for, or a called shot, which i can't find the rule for. i'm also gonna beef up the zombies. and use ghoul plague for bit victims. also, these zombies, since they need a head hit to actually die, are not immune to critical hits.

The Memorable NPC

How do you make your NPCs memorable? How do you pull at player's heart strings to the point where they're upset when an NPC leaves/dies/falls to some sort of woe? I'm more talking about NPCs that are allies, or neutral figures that have helped the players in the past, than villains; although, if you have villain advice you feel like you simply must post, by all means, I would love to read it too. :-)
