Ok, the big weekend has arrived. It's the Grand Opening at Eclectic Geekery with games and events every day. It's like a gaming convention in a book store. If you like books and games you should go.

More info including a video and a poster here.

https://www.facebook.com/eclecticgeekerystore

There will be RPG games; D&D 5e, Chronicles of Ember, Dungeon Crawl Classics, and All Outta Bubblegum; and a Miniature Paint and Take. Special thanks to Alan Wortman, Kier Heyl, Will Hose, and Liz Brown for running events!

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Inspired Unreality open game chat will continue as usual. This week is bring your own topic so if you can't make it to Eclectic Geekery on Saturday at least you can join us chatting about games online.

Inspired Unreality is held every Saturday at 11:00 AM Central in the gamerplus chatrooms at Tenkar's Tavern on Discord. More info and a link here.

Next week on Inspired Unreality we will have Actual Play live from Eclectic Geekery. I will be running my game, Just Quest, a rules light system with an OSR feel and we will be adventuring in Tobbins Shire. Everyone is welcome and if you can't sit around a table with us you can play online.

Thanks to ZDL for sending an error report. By the time I checked on it Gamer+ was running fine again. I am still committed to upgrading Gamer+ to better software and running it on my own server. That's just the kind of project I love and I'm looking forward to working on it this summer. The old Gamer+ will remain with all the content we love so much. It will become a static history of the first years on Gamer+ without accepting new posts or gamers.

On a personal note I am planning on recording with my band, Bebop Beatniks, Monday night. I can't tell you how much I'm looking forward to that.

Please forward this email to your gaming friends and share this link.

Last Saturday we chatted from the RPG room at Eclectic Geekery and we enjoyed that so much we decided to add it as a monthly event. We will be playing Just Quest in Tobbin's Shire, on the other side of Wilken Woods from Milyagon. I've been using the Hearth & Hillside Home dice tables for some low combat, explore the shire gaming and it's been great fun.

Just Quest is a rules light OSR style game and Milyagon is our environs. We're going to try a hybrid game with some players sitting around the table and others on Discord. We'll see how that works. Sound exciting? Well that's in two weeks.

Sunday is Mother's day and the family is coming to visit. In case your forgot this is your reminder from Gamer+.

And next weekend is the Eclectic Geekery grand opening. Here's their facebook.

Next week will be the first Saturday in June so our topic will be fantasy and science fiction. Books, TV, Movies, Games, all on topic. It's a broad topic but we'll hone in on your interests. I've been reading "Malazan Book of the Fallen" by Steven Erikson. And it looks like I'll be reading it for quite a while.

Last week we answered the important question, Do Hobbits Drink Hot Chocolate?

After several discouraging searches concluding that Middle Earth has no chocolate I finally found the result I was looking for.

https://gamerplus.org/newsfeed/4548

I mean after all how could the hobbit mommys get all their little hobbits home for elevenses without serving a nice mug of chocolate?

My daughters, Sarah and Megan, have opened the Eclectic Geekery bookstore in Walnut Ridge, Arkansas, and last weekend we visited with them and then I played a couple of sets of chill jazz piano at Beatles Park.

https://www.facebook.com/eclecticgeekerystore

I livestreamed the show using only battery power and my phone hotspot so this should work anywhere the phone has good signal. I made an audio and video playlist and I have been uploading the best songs to Youtube.

We had a couple of days downtime on our main page again. This time I was able to figure out the problem and repair it. Thanks to FollowMeAndDie for helping me solve this issue.

I livestreamed over twitch using my phone hotspot. The entire rig, piano, pa, phone, and streaming equipment runs on batteries. So I can go anywhere where my phone gets good signal and livestream without an extension cord.

Way cool.

Around the table was my grandson Conner playing a thief, my son Kier playing a fighter, I was a dwarven cleric, my Foster grandson, Simon, played a wizard, and my Foster grandnephew, Luke, played a wizard. Game highlights are at this link.

No Inspired Unreality this Saturday. We have family coming in and we will be busy visiting and gaming. We'll be back next week on April 2nd and our first Saturday topic will be Fantasy and Science Fiction.

Last week at Inspired Unreality Ari and Caper once again adventured around Tobbins Shire. Ari enlisted the help of Dood a th Wood (pronounced Dude ah thah Wude) to divine the spells on the hat and the feather. The feather is a large owl's feather, probably from Wilkin Woods and it is enhanced with fey magic to be a magic augmenter. The hat makes the wearer lighter. The hat takes 25% off and with the feather 50%.

They went to see old Took where Caper bought the pony with ribbons and also bought some light tack for the pony.

Then back to the Inn to see the people they rescued. They now realize they have been thrust 400 years into their future and are at a loss. Ari suggests they make furniture since antique furniture from their era is valued.

https://gamerplus.org/newsfeed/4521

So Saturday, for us, it's family game and visiting my Foster family. Then Sunday, off to Walnut Ridge to see Sarah and Megan's new book store, Eclectic Geekery, and to play a couple of short sets at Beatles Park, right around the corner on Abbey Road. I say short because it's supposed to be chilly.

I am really looking forward to warmer spring weather so I can enjoy playing music outside with my friends.

Please let me know what you've been doing and what you have planned for this spring. Send me an email or message or post on Gamer+.

Thanks to Ducatislo for joining Alan, Vivian, and myself last Saturday. Ducatislo is from Slovenia and he plays a low fantasy historical RPG using Low Fantasy Gaming Deluxe Edition as the core rules for his game. Really sounds interesting.

He shared this link to a Youtube review.

Low Fantasy Gaming Deluxe Edition is from Pickpocket Press and here's the DriveThruRPG link.

And on next Sunday we'll be going to Walnut Ridge to visit with our family, see the new Eclectic Geekery book store, and play chill jazz piano at Beatles Park.

This week is bring your own topic. Next week is March 4, the first Saturday, and the topic will be Fantasy and Science Fiction. Which segues right into.

Eclectic Geekery ready for business.

https://gamerplus.org/newsfeed/4473

Check out the photos on their Facebook. Really looks great.

https://gamerplus.org/newsfeed/4475

Another thing we do at Inspired Unreality is some non-combat game play in the area surrounding Milyagon.

They continue along the trail and coming to the top of a ridge they see mist filling a field that opens up before them, evening light glinting off the dewy roof of a distant cottage. (from Scenery On Your Long Treks d12 table)

They walk through the field towards the cottage and Ari, feeling like something might be wrong here recommends caution. Tude's fur ruffles up on the back of his neck, a sure sign of danger.

Caper suggests they drink some farseeing tea so they can see through the windows from a safe distance. He quickly gathers twigs and builds a fire boiling water in the teapot from his hiking pack. Ari sprinkles in some of the tea and Caper tends the pot while Ari looks around, wondering...

And, finally, here's a bit of eye candy by an artist I found on the Gamer+ Tumblr.

https://gamerplus.org/newsfeed/4476

That's right. Cat pics on Gamer+. Of course, it's a Cabbat.

And here's that tumblr link.

Next Saturday will be the first Saturday in February so our topic will be Fantasy and Science Fiction. The opening topic next week will be Why do RPGs parallel fantasy and science fiction literature?

Great poster art here.

https://gamerplus.org/newsfeed/4453

Shop Eclectic Geekery. You'll be glad you did!

I was scrounging around in some of the back rooms at Delta Boogie and I found some wizard artwork Kier drew for me in 1996.
