Tonight on Inspired Unreaity we will be discussing strategy and tactics.
Does your party set things up in advance of a conflict? Do you plan
escape routes? Have a plan B?

Inspired Unreality is open game chat held every Monday night at 9:00
Central in the gamerplus chatrooms at Tenkar's Tavern on Discord.

Last Monday Megan, Vivian, and Larry enjoyed discussing "Warbreaker"
at the Related To Geeks Book Club. Although we all had
different problems with the book our shared opinion is "not Brandon
Sanderson's best." I'm already reading our book for next month,
"Armada" by Ernest Cline.

Please welcome Alan, the creator of The Chronicles Of Ember, a unique
role playing experience.

Lately I've been enjoying #SixWordStories. Here's my six word SF story.

And then the sun went nova.

Tonight at 9:00 PM Central is open game chat on Inspired Unreality. Everyone is welcome to participate. All gaming is on topic. Inspired Unreality is held in the gamerplus chatrooms at Tenkar's Tavern on Discord. Our initial topic for tonight is Wizards Creating Spells, how does a DM deal with a creative wizard?

Next Monday the Related To Geeks Book Club will discuss "Neuromancer" by William Gibson. This cyberpunk classic is available on the internet library at There's still time to read it before the book club discussion.

Also available on the Internet Archive is the rules for the game "Neuromancer".


Yesterday was Mothers Day and my granddaughter's birthday so the Related To Geeks crew spent the day in virtual visits and sharing special videos while we all stayed home. It was great. Not as good as it should have been but still, great.

Our favorite blogger and podcaster, FollowMeAndDie, has been doing everything he can to stay healthy during the pandemic only to discover that he has cancer. He discussed revising his plans on his podcast and blog. Please check in with him. All prayers that he will be fine. Best to you, brother.

Tonight on Inspired Unreality, open game chat, our starting topic will be playing online. Inspired Unreality is held in the gamerplus chatrooms at Tenkar's Tavern on discord. It starts at 9:00 PM Central time. Anyone can suggest a new topic anytime and all gaming is on topic.

Our favorite game reviewer, ZDL, has posted Fringe Review: High Adventure Role Playing (HARP). She says, "HARP is, in its entirety, a 192-page softcover book.  It has a very attractive (though also very late-90s, early-00s) piece of full colour cover art.  The book itself is purely black & white on plain, matte paper stock."

Here's the link to her review.

She just added another one on Corps so I'm looking forward to reading it even as I send out the link.

FollowMeAndDie posted a great spell.

"Magic item:

Flagon Of Inebriation

This is a cursed item. It renders any liquid the cursed being drinks as intoxicants. Anyone else has clear fresh water. All disease, etc. is removed.

For those who love drink, the curse gives them only water, & everyone else the finest ales.

The being subject to the curse can only drink from the flagon. They always can find it, even if other hide it from them.

They lose one point of constitution for every day they can't drink from the flagon."

Here's the link so you can bookmark it.

I can see where a Flagon Of Inebriation could be great fun around the table.

So are you, like me, having trouble adjusting to the new reality? Or like so many are you taking advantage of too much me time to express yourself in creative ways. Let me know what you've been doing, we can discuss it tonight on Inspired Unreality or post it in next week's Gamer+ News.

Stay Well,

Open Game Chat, tonight on Inspired Unreality at 9:00 PM Central. The opening topic for tonight will be Cool Magic Items. As always anyone can introduce a new topic and all gaming is on topic.

Inspired Unreality is held every Monday night at 9:00 PM Central Time in the gamerplus chatrooms at Tenkars Tavern on Discord. If you are not a member of Tenkars Tavern there is an invite for you on the Gamer+ website.

Last week on the Related To Geeks Podcast we discussed Favorite House Rules. It seems that D&D is a game that cannot be played without house rules.

Carl posted some pictures from his B/X game.

I like the bunny looking thing in the second photo.

FollowMeAndDie continues helping gamers everywhere with his video about Roll20 and his podcast about building a Card Deck.

With the Corona Virus spreading around the world I have this gamers health tip. Practice safe roleplaying. Don't share dice. Besides, I heard that letting someone else roll your dice sucks all the luck out of them. And don't shake hands. Just come and sit at the table and roll your own dice. Then you should be ok. (Please take this advice with a grain of salt. I Am Not A Doctor!)

Stay in touch. Message me on Gamer+ or send me an email. Post your links on Gamer+ and I will include them in this email.

I use OBS, Open Broadcast Studio, to record podcasts. FollowMeAndDie is using OBS to stream RPGs. He's got a video and a blog about this linked here.

Tonight! On Inspired Unreality we will host the Related To Geeks Podcast discussing just what it was that we did in 2019. Looking back, not forward, we attended conventions, hosted conventions, produced podcasts, wrote minizines, shot vlogs, started Gamer+, yes, 2019 has been a big year for Related To Geeks.

Inspired Unreality is an open game chat held in the gamerplus chatrooms at Tenkars Tavern on Discord. As always, you are invited to participate. You can let us know what geeky stuff you did in 2019.

Our last podcast, Role Playing Memories, is here.

FollowMeAndDie went copper with his "Random Dungeon, City, & Travel Generation" pdf on DriveThruRPG.

He also released "Arctic & Glacial Terrain & Encounters". I read it and liked it and I wrote a short review about why I like it.

JesseQ and ZDL had a New Year's Eve dice rolling.

All I can say is "ZDL, what are those dice anyway?"

I started a Just Quest Group all about my Just Quest role playing system and our Milyagon adventures. I posted "Yon Rogar's Hat" to DriveThruRPG/Fiction and I'll soon have a link for "Just Quest" too.

Please stop by and join. It's kind of lonely in here now.

As I put our Milyagon Quests up on DriveThru I am taking the opportunity to rework the stats so they fit right with Just Quest. They started as generic OSR but I pulled from several different systems and the results are somewhat confused.

I know that roll low is a thing but I don't like that thing. Gamers want to roll high. A nat 20 or a 6 on a D6 should always be good. Never bad. So I got to fix that.

Got news? Let me know. I cover a lot of my projects here because I know about them. If I knew about your projects I would be glad to write about them. So let me know.
