NEA Game Fest ended yesterday. Kier said that attendance was better than expected with many out of town guests from as far away as Chicago and attendance totals competing with their last in person Game Fest which was pre covid. The NEA Gamers Guild is on a roll. I'm looking forward to more gaming in the future.

On October 15, Charlie Clay posted "Lots of fun playing TANK ACE tonight at NEA Game Fest.  Battle kicks off again tomorrow at 10 a.m."

Vivian and I put on Blue Fest for 25 years. All of our kids helped with that. It's great seeing my kids continue in our festival promoting way. It's always all about the people.

And tonight! Inspired Unreality open game chat.

Last week I enjoyed chatting games with Alan, Peaktime, and sound. It was a wide ranging discussion that started with the role of the DM. My opinion. The DM shouldn't drive the narrative but he should be alert for narrative hooks in the play and stand ready to enhance the story.

Inspired Unreality
September 20, 2021 at 9:00 PM Central

Special Guest - Robert S. Conley, Creator of Blackmarsh and The Majestic Fantasy RPG

Our topic will be the difference between writing classic D&D vs. 5e?
How to write for both?
How to convert from OSR to 5e?

I know that sounds like three topics but they are very closely intertwined.

Last week on Inspired Unreality.

We had a good open game chat at Inspired Unreality. Alan and SearchingForGryphons joined Vivian and myself and we ended up talking about music and Science Fiction.

https://gamerplus.org/newsfeed/4260

We didn't write any new verses for "Wee Will" but SearchingForGryphons contributed this limerick.

There once was a young boy Wee Will
Who found a bag of gold on a hill
He went back to the hold
And he spent all the gold
Until all that he had equalled nil

Draklorx uploaded 9 new photos to the NEA Game Fest Terrain album.

We had a good chat last week night at Inspired Unreality with both Alan and Datum joining Vivian and myself. As happens with those two we drifted off of games and into philosophy.

Next week Inspired Unreality will be about Science Fiction and Fantasy. We do this on the first Monday of the month. That's right, it's almost September already.

And tonight we're winging it. Vivian and I have a fallback plan where we work on our Milyagon locale. Or you may want to chat about something else. Bring your own topic. All gaming is on topic.

NEA Game Fest is in October and my kids are hard at work making preparations.

https://gamerplus.org/newsfeed/4230

Vivian and I had a little conversation about confidence that's almost a ditty.

All you need is confidence in what you already have and the ability to find what you need.

I have confidence that we can navigate this dungeon and find the treasure.

I have confidence that you can. It's me I'm not sure about.

I have confidence that I can. You have to find your own confidence.

https://gamerplus.org/newsfeed/4188

And I posted a chapter about checklists for my book in progress, "Setting Up A Twitch Studio, Using Tech Creatively".

https://gamerplus.org/blogs/post/817

Let us know what games you've been playing, what songs you've been singing, what stories you've been writing. Post to Gamer+, a social network for creative gamers. Or contact Hairy Larry below. See you tonight on Inspired Unreality.

Gamer+ News October 19, 2020

The NEA Game Fest wrapped up yesterday with two interesting events. Sarah, Kier, and Megan gave their personal top 10 board game list discussing each in some detail. Then Kier hosted an online game of Um Actually, a trivia game about all things geek.

So our opening topic for Inspired Unreality tonight will be Online Gaming and Online Conventions. As always we will be in the gamerplus chatrooms at Tenkar's Tavern on Discord at 9:00 PM Central. Open game chat, everyone is welcome, all gaming is on topic. If you're new to Tenkar's Tavern Gamer+ has an invitation for you here.

https://gamerplus.org/index

Another great event at the NEA Game Fest was "Make your own adventures!" hosted by Carl Heyl and featuring panelists, Mike Stewart, Casey Christofferson, and Levi Combs. They discussed the creation of exciting adventures to wow your players and bedazzle your dungeons as well as playtesting, publishing, and marketing.

This panel and the top ten board games discussion were recorded on Zoom and we'll post the links on Gamer+ when we get them.

I posted a blog called "What I Did AT NEA Game Fest", about my personal experience.

https://gamerplus.org/blogs/post/361

Follow Me And Die says "I've just updated my Silver Seller PDF, Locks, Vaults, and Hiding Places with a second edition that is revised and expanded." Highly recommended. It's a DM guide chock full of tables you can use at your table and it's only 2 bucks.

https://gamerplus.org/newsfeed/2917

If you are looking for background music for your table or music to use in your podcast, vlog, or other project check out this morning's Free Culture Mix. Songs from my "Bop Soup" album are included as well as six other albums. The music licensed CC-BY are free to use with attribution. Just mention who did the song or include it in your credits scroll.

Well, today is the last day so it's not too late to check it out.


http://neagamefest.com


It's a benefit for the Paragould Children's Shelter. Today you can buy a badge for $5 or contribute directly here.


https://www.gofundme.com/f/nea-game-fest-2020-for-the-children039s-shelter


I played "Goat Crash!" hosted by Will Hose and "Lizard Wizard" hosted by my granddaughter, LizardQueen aka Elizabeth Brown.


And I also attended "Make your own adventures!" hosted by Carl Heyl and featuring panelists, Mike Stewart, Casey Christofferson, and Levi Combs. They discussed the creation of exciting adventures to wow your players and bedazzle your dungeons as well as playtesting, publishing, and marketing.


I also did a bit of hanging out in Discord chatting with other gamers, always the most important part of any gaming convention.


So I am sending out a big thanks to the NEA Gamers Guild for putting on such a fun event in trying times. It got me through another week anyway.


https://www.facebook.com/groups/neagamersguild/


It's still going on. I am now attending "Sarah, Kier and Megan are about to count down our top ten board games for anyone who wants to witness the madness!!!".


They are closing out the Game Fest with "Um Actually".

NEA Game Fest 2019 raised $5,418.72! Thanks to all who came out and supported The Children's Shelter!

Egyptian miniatures made of wood 3,500 years ago. I think they are brewing beer.

https://gamerplus.org/photo/view/493/latest

CarlHeyl comments, "My old school minis don't feel so old school now."

FollowMeAndDie posts "A good overview for what is the OSR. Presented in a way that should appeal to new RPGers and those who only know 5e. He limits Old School to D&D and omits all the other games from back in the day that had a similar quick style of play. Or games that started back then that may not be simple rules. AKA Nostalgia."

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wRVJNkOObIU

ZDL posts Chinese playing cards. "This is my second, believe it or not, 100% hand-made deck of playing cards."
