Tonight on Inspired Unreality open game chat our opening topic will be "D&D grew out of fantasy literature and then a branch of fantasy literature grew out of D&D". As always Inspired Unreality begins at 9:00 Central in the gamerplus chat rooms at Tenkars Tavern on Discord. If you haven't been to Tenkars Tavern we have an inivite for you here.
