Tonight! Inspired Unreality! Open game chat at 9:00 Central in the gamerplus chatrooms at Tenkar's Tavern on Discord. Our opening topic will be magic systems. ZDL mentioned the Native American influences in Gunnerkrigg and it got me to thinking about how a magic system based on Native American folklore would work. Spirituality, talking to animals, sweat lodges, drugs, transmutation. Magic systems are a fascinating part of RPGs and fantasy literature. Join us tonight for an interesting discussion.

As always bring your own topic. All gaming is on topic. If you have never been to Tenkar's Tavern we have an invite for you here.

New in my non-gaming world I am almost done with my book, "Beginning Algorithmic Composition", and I started work on a website to host it.

Also I am gathering together all my stuff setting up a studio for a twitch stream. Twitch is all about gaming but I'm doing something different. A twitch stream where I practice piano. I am viewing it as a live stream and a video production environment. We shall see!?! Eventually.

Be sure to update me with what's new in your life. Contact info is below or even better, post your latest interests on Gamer+.

Thanks,

Marty at KASU suggested that we start this back up and I'm doing it all at home and sending it in. It is located at Hairy Larry Rocks Funkwhale. Nice and short with talking about a song, the song, and a promo for Something Blue.

Follow Me And Die has been improving his studio. He says, "I use it to record YouTube videos, and also for livestreams." I've been trying to catch up on his project because I have been preparing the Icosahedron for a similar setup.

So DM Hairy Larry has been running a quest on our available Mondays. I wrote "Milyagon Treasure Hunt" and we're playing in Just Quest, a rules light OSR system. We've got an owl's tailfeather and we're talking to the fairies at the fairy circle. Can we find the ancestor tree? We'll be playing next Monday at 9:00 again, in between our podcasts.

On the music side of my life I have been working on a new website called Hairy Larry Rocks. Hairy Larry Rocks is one ring to rule them all. A Hairy Larry portal at the center that connects all my music, writing, videos, publishing, ... I could go on. But I won’t.

I am sure I will add more in the near future. Enjoy the music.

Memorial Day. Tonight on Inspired Unreality open game chat we will be remembering the dead. Player characters you have played that have died.
Join us in the gamerplus chatrooms at Tenkar's Tavern on Discord.

Next week will be June so we will be having the Related To Geeks Podcast.

Speaking of podcasts Carl turned me on to the latest Save Or Die episode, The Myth Of Old School Exceptionalism.

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.

https://gamerplus.org/newsfeed/2207

And the first episode of the Related To Geeks Book Club is up on Anchor. Megan, Larry, and Datum discuss "The Tower Of The Elephant" by Robert E. Howard.

https://gamerplus.org/newsfeed/2192

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

I have added a new question to your profile page, My blogs, vlogs, podcasts, websites.


So click on you avatar or username and add your stuff. These links do not have to be game related. Of course, if you have a gaming blog, vlog, or podcast we all want the link.


You can also post the link to your company if you are a publisher, artist, cartographer, writer or other creative.


Also if you post these links in Links on the top menu they will appear on the Main page until they scroll off. And they will appear in the sidebar on your profile page. These are good. But there's nothing quite as good as having your links front and center. Click on your name. See your links.


Starting a new project? Putting it on the web? Running a Kickstarter? Add the links.


Here's the link to my profile where you can see how this looks.

There's always room for improvement, especially on any web project, but I have all 4 legs reaching the ground so I'll take a minute to explain our new aggregated RSS feed featuring always new content created by Gamer+ gamers.


Most blogs, podcasts, and video channels have RSS feeds. (or atom feeds, same thing but different) When people follow a podcast so they don't miss any episodes they often use the RSS feed so their podcast is updated in their feedreader or even auto downloaded to their device.


Many of the gamers on Gamer+ are content creators. I am, Carl is, The EvilDM is, and lots more. As you will see. So my idea was to find a way to promote their work right here on this site to make it easy for gamers to find the podcasts, blogs, videos, etc. that other gamers on Gamer+ are creating.


So I installed Tiny Tiny RSS and TheEvilDM and I have been busy subscribing to all the feeds we can find that other gamers on this site have available.


If we missed you let us know in the comments. If you start a new web project let us know. Even if it doesn't have an RSS feed let us know. We want to feature your stuff.


So the four legs of the stool are:


1. A scrolling auto updating display of all the new posts on all the feeds we have subscribed to on Tiny Tiny RSS. This is on the left above the banner in the footer.


2. A link list to the homepages of 12 of these creators that changes each time you load a page. This is on the right above the banner in the footer.


3. An auto updating link list to 60 recent posts from the Gamer+ creators. You can access this link at the bottom left of item 2 above, the bottom left of the right block just above the footer. There, is that confusing enough? I think I'll just post the link here.


View last 60 items here


4. A manually updated categorized link list of all the homepages of every feed we have added to Tiny Tiny RSS. This is on the bottom right just above the banner and also on the far right in the footer next to Mobile version. And here's the link for that.


Gamer's Homepages


Did you notice I said manually updated? No, I don't type this stuff in. I run a program I wrote on the exported opml file from Tiny Tiny RSS and the program types it all in. Still it's a thing that has to happen so it won't always happen just as soon as the RSS feeds are updated. And it might happen before the RSS feeds are updated because there is often a delay of about an hour before new posts are displayed.


I am not done working on this but I am happy with it. It's really good. It's all there. It could be better. What else is new?


Like I said, if you're on Gamer+ we want to add your stuff. And if you're not on Gamer+, join, so we can add your stuff. There's a lot of content on Gamer+ already and more all the time. But the amount of content in these feeds that you can easily access right from the footer on every page is more than you will ever have time to consume.


So, Enjoy! And add a comment below.

Ok, if you scroll down you can see what I've been working on right above the banner in the footer of each page. The left hand box is an aggregated RSS feed including blogs, podcasts, and videos made by Gamer+ gamers. The right hand box is a link list to the home page of these blogs, podcasts, or video channels.

There are so many creative people here doing so many things I wanted to feature their work. By reading, listening, and viewing what they do you will get to know them better than you can just browsing Gamer+.

I have ideas to make this better. I'd like to put up a page that's a categorized link list with all the links in one place instead of just 12 at a time. So if you're looking for something to read you can check the Blogs category, if you want to listen while you're cleaning your office (lol) you can check the podcast category.


If you have ideas to improve this project or others please post them below in the comments.


It's really a big world out there and nobody has time to check out all the creative work that even some of us do. I can't even keep up with what my kids do! So after you listen to a podcast or watch a video give it a mention here on Gamer+. That will give others an incentive to make that connection.


And if you have a creative gaming endeavor, even if it doesn't have a feed, please post in the comments. I am going to devise a way to include links to projects that aren't feed friendly like fiction, art galleries, or other major projects.
