Gamer+ News December 2, 2019

Tonight is the Related To Geeks Podcast on Inspired Unreality. Starts at 9:00 pm Central in the gamerplus chatrooms at Tenkar's Tavern on Discord.

Last month we discussed Fantasy and SF Reads and we ran late and still had trouble quitting. And next month we are starting our first spinoff, The Related To Geeks Book Club. And, yes, we are going to be reading Fantasy and SF. Here's the group.

https://gamerplus.org/groups/28

And there's a game Thursday, December 5, on If You Play You Win. RobboG will be running the game on his own system, Universe Unleashed. I played in the last one and it was great. The game will start at 7:00 pm Eastern. Let us know if you want to play or just come if you can and jump in. We have pregens.

ZDL has another Fringe Review. This time it's Psi World. She says, "The absolute monarchs of the '80s vibe were Fantasy Games Unlimited. There was not a crazy concept they weren't willing to champion and publish. ... And in the middle of all this is the subject of today's Fringe Review: Psi World." Read it all.

FollowMeAndDie has published a new supplement, "Caves, Caverns & Underground Encounters", on DriveThruRPG. I read it and since it's Pay What You Want you can too.

Please share these links with your friends on your blog, website, or social network account. There's something of interest for any gamer at Gamer+.

And we really are a social network with everyone wishing everyone a Happy Thanksgiving. So since it's already December I'll just say I hope you had as good a Thanksgiving as I did.

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

https://anchor.fm/relatedtogeeks/episodes/Related-To-Geeks---Season-2-Episode-3---Fantasy-and-Science-Fiction-Reads-e8r6gk

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.

https://gamerplus.org/groups/28

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

https://gamerplus.org/newsfeed/1634?ft=site

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.

https://gamerplus.org/newsfeed/1625?ft=site

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.

Related To Geeks podcast tonight on Inspired Unreality at Tenkar's Tavern on Discord. Everyone is welcome. 9:00 PM Central Time. The topic will be Fantasy and SF reads.

Thanks to ZDL I learned how to link to a Newsfeed story.

https://gamerplus.org/blogs/77

RobboG, ZDL, and I have been discussing a new fantasy/sf game concept called cyberfae or feypunk or even a better name that includes both. Like cyberfaepunk.

https://gamerplus.org/newsfeed/1558?ft=site

ARPG-CON is this weekend! November 9 and 10.

https://tabletop.events/conventions/arkansas-rpg-con

We played Star Wars on If You Play You Win last Friday and we escaped Mos Shuuta. After we stole the rocket ship from the Lizard guy who traded in wookie pelts we got the control center to unclamp the ship by sitting his corpse in the pilot's chair and cutting a hole in the back of his head so I could reach through and work his mouth to say, "Oh, the wookies, the wookies, I have to get off this planet, unclamp my ship."

We want to promote your gaming blog, vlog, channel, podcast, products, etc. Please send me your links.

And tell your friends about Gamer+. We actually have a lot of stuff going on. Everyone is welcome. All gaming is on topic.

Thanks,

Open Game chat tonight. Inspired Unreality is every Monday night at 9:00 PM Central Time. Join us in the gamerplus chatrooms in Tenkar's Tavern on Discord. The initial topic for tonight is Keeping It Real, can fantasy role playing be too fantastic?

RobboG hosted our first If You Play You Win online RPG last Friday. We had a great time fighting aliens on an asteroid. And we ended up being teleported into another solar system. Always good to end on a cliffhanger. RobboG wants to turn this into a campaign. If you want to try his gaming system, Universe Unleashed, message him on Gamer+.

https://gamerplus.org/user/RobboG

The question for the day is who drew the Yeep?

https://gamerplus.org/photo/view/494/latest

The Yeep is one of the alien species we encountered in Universe Unleashed.

And we have another If You Play You Win RPG online this Friday starting at 6:00 PM Central Time. Draklorx will be running Star Wars: Edge of the Empire - Escape From Mos Shuuta. Everyone is invited.

https://gamerplus.org/groups/26

CarlHeyl posted a picture of my granddaughter, Emily. Carl says, "My 9 year old daughter running Swords & Wizardry Light."

https://gamerplus.org/photo/view/496/latest

DualClassic says, "One last day of prepping before the first session of my Delving Deeper game on Monday. Ideas have been pouring out like water down a mountain. Haven't been this inspired in writing up an adventure in quite some time. It's gonna be an interesting first session for sure!"

https://gamerplus.org/user/DualClassic

So, come and chat, come and play, run a game if you want to. Bring a friend. Stay in touch.

Thanks,

Hairy Larry

Our first If You Play You Win actual play podcast will be held Friday, October 25 at 6:00 pm Central, 7:00 Eastern. RobboG will be running a one off in his new game, Universe Unleashed. Here's a link to the pregens and rules.

Players will find everything they need to know on pages 3-6 of the Universe Unleashed pdf.

If you pick and name your character post a reply here or message hairylarry or RobboG so we will know what's happening.

It's also fine to jump in tomorrow if you can. That's why we're using pregens.

I will be playing Constant Comment, in the support division, and I'm a hacker.

I'm looking forward to a new experience tomorrow night.


Thanks

Inspired Unreality open game chat is tonight, Monday, September 30, at 9:00 pm Central in the gamerplus chatrooms at Tenkar's Tavern on Discord. I have a gig from 6:00 to ???, Bebop Beatniks is playing at The Crossing in Paragould, Arkansas, for A Taste Of The Ridge sponsored by the Downtown Paragould Association. So ... I will be in chat and probably at 9:00 but I may be late. Feel free to start without me. Post a topic or just chat.

Next week is the Related To Geeks Podcast on Inspired Unreality and I don't have a gig. So Yayyy!

The scheduled If You Play You Win actual play podcast, Escape from Mos Shuuta, has been rescheduled to November 1, 6:00 to 9:00 pm. You don't have to preregister to play but you can if you want. The character sheets are available at

http://guitarshowdown.com/hll/public/3d25dc

If you find a character you want to play let me know so I can move the character sheet to the Already Taken folder.

I created an If You Play You Win pdf using The Homebrewery website. You can see it or print it at the link above.

DragonMac will be showing Adventure Maximum at the Name Your Game Expo in Tulsa, Oklahoma on October 5 and 6.

I've been enjoying this post, Free and Pay-What-You-Want 5e DMs Guild Highlights: Week Ending 9.28.19, by Froth that I found in our RSS feed at the bottom of the Blogs page.

https://frothsofdnd.blogspot.com/2019/09/free-and-pay-what-you-want-5e-dms-guild_28.html

I downloaded the Magical Junk Drawer. I'm sure if I were a wizard I would have a drawer full of stuff like that. Froth says, "Fun and creative collection of very minor magic items, such as the Exfoliator, which magically removes callouses, and Elminster's Earrings, which give an appearance of tiny dancing lights around the head of the wearer. Magical bric-a-brac."

Your mama always said that it's good to share so be sure to share Gamer+ with your friends.

If You Play You Win rescheduled to Friday, November 1.


If You Play You Win - Gamer+ Actual Play Podcast

Friday, November 1, 6:00 - 9:00 pm Central in the gamerplus chatrooms at Tenkar's Tavern.

DM Draklorx(Kier) - gamerplus.org/user/Draklorx

We'll be playing: Star Wars: Edge of the Empire

The module is the beginner game adventure called: Escape From Mos Shuuta

You are a group of outer rim fringers made up of bounty hunters, smugglers, explorers, and expatriates who have all run afoul of the crime lord, TEEMO THE HUTT! Trapped in the space port Mos Shuuta on the desert world of Tatooine you are running out of time and options, and need to get off of this planet fast! As luck would have it, a Trandoshan slaver by the name of Trex has recently docked his ship the Krayt Fang, and you wouldn't feel too bad about relieving the slaver of his ship. During a chase through the streets with Teemo's henchmen you duck into a Cantina and have only a few moments before they come in after you with their blasters ready.

You do not have to preregister to play. Anyone can jump in anytime. But if you want to preregister you can. Then you can choose your character from pregens. decide on your name, and be ready to go, blasters blazing.

You can peruse the pregens here. If you want to pick a character to play let me know. Message hairylarry at Gamer+ or email hairylarry@deltaboogie.com.

AEIOU posts in the_dungeon_show at Tenkar's Tavern


@Bruce_Lombardo The Dungeon Show has ended its famous run and is already dearly missed.  @Carl Heyl (Wild Games Prod)  has a new project (or a few new ones?) that he's working on.  This space has been subleased for a weekly Monday chat regarding G+ (Gamer+) with @hairylarry .  It's a nascent social media hub that holds considerable promise for the gaming community.


Carl Heyl adds


Gamerplus is something dad and I thought up on the way home from North Texas RPG Con. I hope it works well for people
It's at gamerplus.org


Bruce Lombardo says


I like Gamerplus.


LaramieWall chimes in


Sub-Pexx Laramie will be transitioning this space from Dungeon Show to Harry Larry's new plans .


AEIOU jokes (I think)


Hairy Larry's Nefarious Plan for World Domination would be a good working title for the channel


hairylarry replies


If I had the ring I could rule the world Bwa ha ha ha ha.


I would like both the voice and text chats to be renamed Gamer+
Looks like you can use minus signs (-) so plus signs (+) will probably be ok.


Right now our only event is the Monday night Inspired Unreality Open Game Chat. We plan on having occasional guests and I have an under my hat idea for a monthly podcast as part of this event.


I also have plans for an Actual Play event called If You Play You Win. This would be one offs, jump in and jump out, with rotating DMs. The DM for the session will pick the game system. It would be really cool to have DMs playing their own modules or even their own rule systems.


At Gamer+ we have international gamers and also some early risers and off to work folks so we might experiment with the time slots to include them. Not for Inspired Unreality but definitely for new events.


How's that for riveting dialogue?
