Tonight on Inspired Unreality open game chat we will be discussing
making your own magic items, spells, and worlds. Join us in the
gamerplus chatrooms at Tenkars Tavern on Discord. In the open game
chat anyone can change topics and all gaming is on topic.

ZDL posted another great fringe review on Mythic, a game system
designed for winging it. This game can be played with a DM or without.
Solo or group. It has an interesting and simple mechanic. Read about it
here.

FollowMeAndDie reports on his Roll 20 game. He says, "In today's session
of my AD&D game, the party managed to get through a week of game time.
This included introducing two new players & characters into the party,
surviving an ambush, & finally getting to the sand ships to sail across
the desert to face the Son of The Necromancer." Read more here.

Tonight, at 9:00 PM Central, on Inspired Unreality we will be talking to Vivian Heyl about family games, how to play DnD with kids, expecially your kids. Please join us in the gamerplus chatrooms at Tenkar's Tavern on Discord. Inspired Unreality is an open game chat. Everyone is welcome.

Last week at the Related To Geeks Book Club Megan and I talked about "Circe" by Madeline Miller. We both liked "Circe" and we're going to read Miller's earlier book "Song Of Achilles", another fantasy novel based on Greek mythology.

Then we decided on the books for the next three months.

July 20 - Warbreaker - Brandon Sanderson
August 17 - Armada - Ernest Cline
September 21 - Gilgamesh

The Brandon Sanderson book is licensed Creative Commons. Sanderson discusses what this means here.

"Warbreaker" is available for free download on unglue.it. Mobi, epub, and pdf formats are available.

https://gamerplus.org/newsfeed/2234

Read Appendix N at the Internet Archive. No, not the list. The books.

"This list of fantasy books was drawn up by the late E. Gary Gygax toward the end of the 1970s. While formalizing the advanced rule set for Dungeons & Dragons, a game he created with Dave Arneson, Gygax added an appendix to his Dungeon Master's Guide listing the books that inspired him to create his fantasy role-playing game."

Join us at the Inspired Unreality Open Game Chat tonight at 9:00 PM Central. The topic for tonight is Cool Monsters. Let's face it. Some bad guys are just cool. What are some of your favorite monsters from your gaming? Inspired Unreality is held in the gamerplus chatrooms at Tenkars Tavern on Discord.

I have to admit this topic was inspired by FollowMeAndDie who posted The Ray Harryhausen Creature List, a video montage of Harryhausen monsters from the movies.

https://gamerplus.org/video/view/57

Next week for Inspired Unreality we will host the Related To Geeks Book Club. We will be discussing "The Darklord of Derkholm" by Diana Wynne Jones. I've started it. It's one of those children's books that's for adults too. Very entertaining.

https://gamerplus.org/groups/28

ZDL has been preparing for the Zombie Apocalypse by stockpiling spirits to fight those Zombie Apocalypse Blues.

https://gamerplus.org/newsfeed/2165

JesseQ joined the group, If You Play You Win, reminding me that we should host some online games during the lockout. If you are interested in running a game, playing, or both here's the link to the group.

https://gamerplus.org/groups/26

When Carl started posting pics of the new miniatures he's been printing it inspired me to build a new table for my 3D Printer and get back to slicing and dicing. Also I started a group for 3D Printing where we will discuss all aspects of creating your own miniatures for your table. We'd love to see your photos, recommendations, tips, paint jobs, etc. Join the group and post your favorite miniatures.

Celebrating Easter we had a family game day, Quaranteaster, yesterday on Discord. So from all of us, who are Related To Geeks, to all of you, "Happy Easter."

I moved my 3D printer into my office and I've printed a few new miniatures too. It only took a moderate amount of carpentry work to fix the table for the printer.

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.

https://gamerplus.org/blogs/post/179

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

https://gamerplus.org/blogs/post/180

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.

https://gamerplus.org/newsfeed/2112

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,

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.

https://gamerplus.org/photo/view/554/latest

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.
