Tonight! At 9:00! Central! Inspired Unreality Open Game Chat.

After having a weekend of family gaming online we are going to discuss playing online as a way of staying in touch with your family. Kind of on the Family Game theme we were going to discuss last week but instead we discussed other stuff.

And that's fine. Bring your own topic. All gaming is on topic.

Inspired Unreality is held every Monday in the gamerplus chatrooms at Tenkar's Tavern on Discord. If you haven't been to Tenkar's Tavern we have an invite for you here.

Sound and I have been going on a bit about Birkenstock. Must be somewhere near Milyagon because we get all the same Player Characters showing up both places.

I like this Hiroshi Yoshida artwork. All Public Domain. Not specifically fantasy but they could be used in oriental fantasy settings.

And I dug out my Two Geeks Video. It's a hoot. And less than a minute long. I like the way the play button makes me look like a spaceman.

We played Virtual Dirty Santa on Discord yesterday. We all passed the wrapped gifts around on a gameboard and then we opened them in order.


Here are the gifts given by those who are Related To Geeks (my family).









Half Halfling

by Larry Heyl CC-BY


My Mother, the midget

Fell for a halfling bard

Who sang her sweet love songs

beneath the pine trees in his yard.

They married in April

Which makes me a Winter's child

Quite mild for a human

As halfling, quite wild.


So yes I'm half halfling

From bald head to hairy toes

I hunt through the forest

Where wild mushrooms grow.

Will I seek adventure

Or farm in the shire?

Sing for my lady love

While I pluck the lyre.

Those who are Related To Geeks discuss audio and video production for podcasts and vlogs.

Follow Me And Die has some thoughts about the illustrations of Dave Trampier.

https://gamerplus.org/newsfeed/2998

Also... (See Inspired Reality above.) I posted a blog about Writing Quests. I compare writing quests to writing stories and I lay out my plan for quickly putting a quest idea on paper, ready to play. Or for the best quest ideas ready to add assets and make it publishable.

They say the best advertising is word of mouth which is a good thing because we can't afford any other kind. At the bottom of your profile page there is a section that says "Link to your Profile Page - Copy, Paste, Add username".

Open game chat on Inspired Unreality tonight at 9:00 Central. Our initial topic will be writing modules. How is it different than writing a story? Just how much needs to be figured out in advance anyway? Three sentences for each NPC? Monsters and Treasure? Maps?

MyrddinWyllt says, "I've been running a game of Lords of Olympus for the last 5 months. If anyone here likes Greek Mythology and enjoys the idea of playing Gods and Demigods in an infinite Multiverse I would highly recommend it."

https://gamerplus.org/newsfeed/2954

He also posted some nice maps of Middle Earth.

Meanwhile at The Archive Of The White Master we've all got horses except Caper the halfling who has a pony. We cracked the safe. And Marusan is back!

Open game chat tonight on Inspired Unreality. Our opening topic will be NPCs. Just how much agency should the DM give to NPCs? Should they only be minions or more like PCs with the DM acting out their roles? Or should the DM go even further with NPCs solving puzzles that have stymied the party or even fighting their fights for them? I'm more of the have the NPC give a hint every now and then but I am open minded about this. Should the NPC add a bit of color or should they dominate the narrative if necessary in the eyes of the DM? What's your take?

Inspired Unreality open game chat is held in the gamerplus chatrooms at Tenkar's Tavern on Discord. 9:00 PM Central every Monday night. If you are new to Tenkar's Tavern we have an invite for you here.

Happy Halloween. The one holiday we've got that goes hand in hand with Role Playing Games. My advice. Buy some extra candy and keep your kids at home. I love Halloween. But this year we aren't expecting any trick or treaters. Of course we live out in the country.

Tonight on Inspired Unreality Vivian and I will be discussing Halloween and gaming. Dressing up as your favorite PC. Playing a spooky game. How does Halloween affect your gaming plans for the weekend? Open game chat. All gaming is on topic.

We will be in the gamerplus chatrooms at Tenksar's Tavern on Discord. If you haven't been to Tenkar's Tavern it's all about D&D with a heavy dash of OSR. We have an invitation for you here.

Follow Me And Die writes, "I've just updated my Silver Seller PDF, Locks, Vaults, and Hiding Places with a second edition that is revised and expanded." It's full of "information and random tables to help Game Masters create more unique locks and other means of securing."

I have now posted three session summaries of our family game, "The Archive Of The White Master". We're such geeks that when we play D&D we go to a library. Executive Summary - We just killed the evil wizard, Marusan, and recovered the magic rod Pann-Severi. Read the session summaries for all the details. Carl is hosting this OSR game in Basic D&D.

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.
