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.

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.

Stay in touch,
Hairy Larry

The 1980s were halcyon years for RPGs in many ways.  There was insane diversity of subject matter as every conceivable niche and sub-niche was explored, and madness infected a lot of game designs.  This was also, after all, very much the decade of the "crunchy" game: games with ever-more complicated and "realistic" rules.


The absolute monarchs of the '80s vibe were Fantasy Games Unlimited (FGU)  There was not a crazy concept they weren't willing to champion and publish.  The first "realistic" medieval game (Chivalry & Sorcery) was theirs.  The first game to feature non-humanoids as the central characters (Bunnies & Burrows) was theirs.  The first popular superhero RPG (Villains & Vigilantes) was theirs.  The first medieval Japanese RPG (Land of the Rising Sun) was theirs as was the most popular one (Bushido) for ages.  And while not the first SF games ever, two of the earliest SF games (Starships & Spacemen, Space Opera) were theirs too, the latter of which still causes warm fuzzy feelings when I think back to its convoluted insanity but immense fun.
