Welcome to Inspired Unreality open game chat, tonight at 9:00 PM Central in the gamerplus chatrooms at Tenkar's Tavern on Discord. If you've never been to Tenkar's Tavern there's a link for you here.

First on the agenda tonight will be working on Caper's song of reckless spending, a favorite of proprietors in gambling houses everywhere Caper goes. So far I've got something about the wheel goes round but we're going to hammer it out tonight and I need your help.

Last week Alan joined us and we talked a bit about SF and Fantasy books and a bit about writing, discussing our current projects. Alan is working on his Ember module called "Mine". I have run it once at ARRPGCon and once online and it was fun both times.

https://gamerplus.org/user/Alan

He will tell you about The Chronicles of Ember here.

https://chroniclesofember.com/2018/04/10/welcome-to-ember/

I am reading Rebecca Roanhorse. Her novel, "Black Sun", is a Hugo finalist this year and deserves to win. (Although I haven't read any of the other finalists yet. They probably all deserve to win.) She also writes YA Fantasy stories based on Navajo mythology. More here.

https://gamerplus.org/newsfeed/4199

And I posted another chapter for my book, "Setting Up A Twitch Studio - Using Tech Creatively" called Backup Overview and Strategy. Yeah, I know. Boring. But essential!

https://gamerplus.org/blogs/post/806

Come to Inspired Unreality tonight to help Caper finish his song of reckless spending. One more page in Caper's Songbook, soon to be a minizine resource for bard's everywhere.

Spread the word.

Thanks,

Tonight on Inspired Unreality we are back to actual play. Alan wrote "The Chronicles Of Ember" and he is our game master. We fought the big bad undead guy and somehow survived and now we're going after the double crosser who left us to die. We'll see how this all works out tonight. Jump in if you'd like.

Next week on Inspired Unreality we will be hosting the Related To Geeks Podcast with special guests Levi Combs and Will Hose. Our topic will be:

What players love. What players hate. What DMs love. What DMs hate.

Now theres a topic where everyone has an opinion.

ZDL posted another Fringe Review: Bloodshadows: Fantasy-Noir Roleplaying and it is up to her usual detailed standard.

https://gamerplus.org/blogs/560

Follow Me And Die is interested in feedback. He says, "I'm working on a master spreadsheet of gear & supplies price list for D&D and other fantasy RPGs." He's got all kinds of details and he wants you to help fill in the blanks.

There were a lot of great pictures posted on Gamer+ last week. MyrddinWyllt posted some gems to his gallery, Pulp Artwork And Inspiration.

https://gamerplus.org/photo/useralbum/MyrddinWyllt/97

And I took some of my best miniature photos to date. I printed it. I painted it. And I took the pictures. It's Ratzerker!

https://gamerplus.org/photo/useralbum/hairylarry/98

If you've got some favorite fantasy artwork or pics of your miniatures we'd love to see them. Just go to Photos and post your gallery.

Great game last Monday on Inspired Unreality. Vivian and I were joined by lizardqueen and Corgiface following Chen Chen the monk into a dungeon in search of a holy artifact and treasure!

Well, we almost died once. DM Alan certainly does keep the players on their toes.

We did not finish the oneoff in one session so there will be more Chronicles Of Ember next Monday.

https://gamerplus.org/newsfeed/3348

And now it's Monday and time for Inspired Unreality. Actual Play tonight with DM Alan running his own game, "The Chronicles Of Ember". If you want to jump in and you need a character sheet he has a program for that.

We will be playing in the gamerplus chatrooms at Tenkar's Tavern on Discord. If you haven't been to Tenkar's Tavern we have an invite for you here. We start at 9:00 Central.

https://gamerplus.org/index

We continue our conversation about "Some musings on solving challenges with less combat."

https://gamerplus.org/newsfeed/3349

I set up a background for miniature photography using a mushroom fantasy village plaque that Megan woodburned for me and a bunch of tiny houses made of straw and twigs that Vivian gave me. Then I took a few pictures of The Blue Mage, a beastman, and a beholder.

https://gamerplus.org/photo/useralbum/hairylarry/96

I'm reminding you once again about Megan TV at https://www.twitch.tv/megantopia - Like indie games? So does Megan.

https://gamerplus.org/newsfeed/3342

And we're closing with some thoughts on winter. "Winter is upon us and it's a good thing to have distractions like Gamer+ to help us keep busy and active. Hope all of you are staying warm and content. ... Sound."

https://gamerplus.org/newsfeed/3347

Which reminds me, Ember is a cold cold world. And dangerous. Believe me, in our first encounter two of us almost died. Join us tonight for Inspired Unreality.

Tonight! On Inspired Unreality!! Actual Play!!!

Alan wrote the game "The Chronicles Of Ember". He will be the DM for a oneoff tonight.

https://gamerplus.org/user/Alan

So, if you want to give a new game a try, join us. If I were to describe "The Chronicles Of Ember" in one word it would be dangerous. (And fun.)

Inspired Unreality is held every Monday night at 9:00 Central in the gamerplus chatrooms at Tenkar's Tavern on Discord. If you are new to Tenkar's Tavern we have an invitation for you here.

This picture keeps getting comments. ZDL says "There is rather a lot going on in this picture... ". This is true.

The Captive Robin

Click on over and add your comment. There's enough here for a whole campaign.

Follow Me And Die posted to his blog about "Magical Protections". He says "Spells and abilities that negate or remove magical effects are a bit confusing in AD&D and the DM would be well served to figure things out before they come up during play."

I posted about my lesson this term. "For my composition lesson this Spring I am writing a book, "Beginning Algorithmic Compostition". What does this have to do with gaming?"

https://gamerplus.org/newsfeed/3322

Join us tonight in Ember. Let us know what games you've been playing. Or writing. Or drawing. Post on Gamer+ or send me an email.

Gamer+ News August 17, 2020

Tonight at 9:00 PM Central the Related To Geeks Book Club will be discussing "Armada" by Ernest Cline. Find us in the gamerplus chatrooms at Tenkar's Tavern on Discord. Ernest Cline also wrote "Ready Player One" and like with that book "Armada" has a strong gamer component. Some of the characters even have a regular D&D campaign.

https://gamerplus.org/groups/28

Last week Alan joined us on Inspired Unreality open game chat and we discussed the recasting of Monsters as regular people in D&D 5e among other things. That was fun. I might decide I want to play and Orc or an Ogre but I'm not sure how much I want to be a civilized Orc or Ogre.

https://gamerplus.org/user/Alan

FollowMeAndDie posted "Episode 184 - My Campaign - Continued Desert Travels by Follow Me, And Die! A podcast on Anchor."

https://gamerplus.org/newsfeed/2389

Megan posted Episode 3 of Indie Five. She says, "I talk briefly about five indie games I've played recently." Check it out.

https://gamerplus.org/video/view/62

worldofwarcraftlee discusses a hidden insect in Animal Crossing: New Horizons.  I think the insect is actually a bug. Read it for yourself.

https://gamerplus.org/blogs/post/243

After years of one offs and intermittent schedules I find myself in two weekly campaigns. Family game is 5e and the other game is "Chronicles Of Ember" which is Furry and Dangerous. What games are you playing? Are you lucky enough to be playing or running a regular campaign? Sounds like a good topic for Inspired Unreality. Message me.

A new Related To Geeks Podcast has been posted at anchor.fm.

Rather extensive show notes with about 100 books listed are here.

https://gamerplus.org/blogs/82

And Megan has suggested a new project, the Related To Geeks Book Club where we get together once a month and discuss a book we've all recently read or reread. If this interests you join the group.

Check out Mark's new game, Gangbusters B/X.

And RobboG's Tumbleweed Tales Volume 3 - Welcome to the Four Color Western. Inspired by the garishly colored and fast paced comic books of the 40s.

So that's what we do on Gamer+. Write games. Play games. At conventions. On the internet. And read books too. So if you know someone who likes this kind of stuff turn them on to Gamer+. We want to meet them.

I added content by HexedPressman and DualClassic to our RSS feed found in the footer on every page. If you have something for us to include let me know.
