I myself know quite a lot about Ruby, and only little about Python.

I am still undecided what to do. On my todo list is learning Python, so that is a possibility.

On the other hand, I could try to write ruby bindings for FIFE and interface with FIFE for PARPG via Ruby.

I could then start to advance the game more in a ruby-esque manner, and would use github to keep track of all the game logic that would have to be in Ruby.

Cleaning away the bureaucracy in PARPG to make our life easier.

Thinking of using Ruby in addition to Python.
I think you don't realize how much additional work it takes to properly introduce another language. Choose one scripting language and stick to it.
On my todo list is learning Python, so that is a possibility.
This would seem the most obvious choice to me. Python, like Ruby, is fairly easy to learn.

I second Taldor's opinion. Introducing Ruby support into FIFE won't be that easy.

You might have more success trying to find a new python programmer for PARPG instead of trying to pick up python yourself. Just my 2 cents ...
