Most of you know I'm into music. I am also a Free Culture/Creative Commons advocate promoting Mix Culture where you reuse other people's art to make your own. Put them both together and you get MixRemix Radio. Give it a listen, play it for background at your table, or find some music to use in your vlog, podcast, or other project.

Tonight at 9:00 PM Central the Related To Geeks Book Club will be discussing "Armada" by Ernest Cline. Find us in the gamerplus chatrooms at Tenkar's Tavern on Discord. Ernest Cline also wrote "Ready Player One" and like with that book "Armada" has a strong gamer component. Some of the characters even have a regular D&D campaign.

https://gamerplus.org/groups/28

Last week Alan joined us on Inspired Unreality open game chat and we discussed the recasting of Monsters as regular people in D&D 5e among other things. That was fun. I might decide I want to play and Orc or an Ogre but I'm not sure how much I want to be a civilized Orc or Ogre.

After years of one offs and intermittent schedules I find myself in two weekly campaigns. Family game is 5e and the other game is "Chronicles Of Ember" which is Furry and Dangerous. What games are you playing? Are you lucky enough to be playing or running a regular campaign? Sounds like a good topic for Inspired Unreality. Message me.

Join us in the gamerplus chatrooms at Tenkar's Tavern on Discord.

https://gamerplus.org/newsfeed/2214

FollowMeAndDie says "10 episodes of my podcast have passed 100 plays each. I have more than that that are close to 100 plays." and he invites you to listen. You could be the one hundredth listener.

In case you're not getting the big picture here, ZDL started the Tabletop Inspiration group "for sharing pictures that can inspire ideas for places and characters in tabletop role-playing games.  Come share your most inspiring images, with or without commentary as you see fit!"

I added some public domain artwork from The Violet Fairy Book. Please share images that have inspired you in your role playing.

https://gamerplus.org/groups/35

It's not Christmas Eve but it's close. So for our Inspired Unreality open game chat tonight the initial topic will be games as gifts. Inspired Unreality is held in the gamerplus chatrooms at Tenkar 's Tavern on Discord.

In a very special review ZDL covers 1PG/Hero Force and then she discusses RobboG's supplement, "Hero Force Giant Size Super Special" including Victory City. So we have a Gamer+ gamer reviewing a supplement written by a Gamer+ gamer.

Here's the review.

https://gamerplus.org/blogs/post/144

And here's a link to GSSS at Drive Thru RPG.

https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/50380/Hero-Force-Giant-Size-Super-Special

Inspired Unreality tonight at 9:00 PM Central Time! Inspired Unreality is an open game chat held in the gamerplus chatrooms at Tenkar's Tavern on Discord. Voice and text chat. The starting topic for tonight will be party games.

The NEA Gamers Guild had their last Library Game Day yesterday followed by a Christmas party where they ... played games. Including a dirty santa gift exchange where you rolled a D6 and read your action from a table. Needless to say various strategies were employed.

We have big plans for the New Year including the Related To Geeks Book Club where we will read Fantasy and Science Fiction novels and novelettes and discuss them in the gamerplus chatrooms at Tenkar's Tavern on the third Monday of each month (except we will take November and December off). If you want to read ahead for January our first selection is The Tower Of The Elephant by Robert E. Howard. Here's a link to the text.

http://gutenberg.net.au/ebooks06/0600831h.html

It is also available as an audio book on Youtube.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bNYnZgBg4IA

Our book for February will be "Little Brother" by Corey Doctorow and then in March we will read "The Ocean at the End of the Lane" by Neil Gaiman.

If you are interested in the Related To Geeks Book Club we have a group for that.

https://gamerplus.org/groups/28

RobboG is also setting up a regular actual play group on Thursday nights that will be recorded as an If You Play You Win podcast. So if you miss the good old days when your party adventured in a weekly campaign let me know. We have three people now. We need four or five in our core group, and then, of course, we will welcome anyone who can only jump in for a night at a time.

Please welcome ZDL into her role as moderator on Gamer+. She volunteered to help me squash the bots and she has also been one of our most consistent posters covering everything from Chinese card games to her book in progress, Reviews From The Fringe. She is friendly and helpful and perfect for the job.
