Wanted: One Finnish to English translation

Poking my webstatistics, I noticed a couple links from a livejournal account.  Following it back, I was, um, confounded.  It's from someone in Finland, and I SO don't speak the language.  Quite aside from the total buzz from having someone talk about my game in a foreign language, I'd like to know what they're saying. :)

I've commented, asking for a translation, but it's a few posts down now, so I don't know if the person will see it.

Could one of the folks here with a command of both languages translate this article for me?

The beginning is about the person's personal stuff. The relevant paragraph reads:

"I stumbled on the Death's Door roleplaying game which I thought extremely fascinating. This is exactly the kind of game I'd like to play, a game wherein you really have to ponder on your character's life and thoughts. From the game in question conversation turned to a certain ancient Idea. I clearly opened my mouth in the right place, as at the end of the evening the idea had transformed into a rough draft of a larp. I couldn't think of a better way to spend my time. Of course, I've heard that one shouldn't get mixed with organizing a larp, but..."
