Tonight on Inspired Unreaity we will be discussing strategy and tactics.
Does your party set things up in advance of a conflict? Do you plan
escape routes? Have a plan B?

Inspired Unreality is open game chat held every Monday night at 9:00
Central in the gamerplus chatrooms at Tenkar's Tavern on Discord.

Last Monday Megan, Vivian, and Larry enjoyed discussing "Warbreaker"
at the Related To Geeks Book Club. Although we all had
different problems with the book our shared opinion is "not Brandon
Sanderson's best." I'm already reading our book for next month,
"Armada" by Ernest Cline.

Last week at the Related To Geeks Book Club Megan and I talked about "Circe" by Madeline Miller. We both liked "Circe" and we're going to read Miller's earlier book "Song Of Achilles", another fantasy novel based on Greek mythology.

I just posted a Related To Geeks Podcast called Board Game Resurgence. It's a blast.

https://gamerplus.org/newsfeed/2234

Read Appendix N at the Internet Archive. No, not the list. The books.

"This list of fantasy books was drawn up by the late E. Gary Gygax toward the end of the 1970s. While formalizing the advanced rule set for Dungeons & Dragons, a game he created with Dave Arneson, Gygax added an appendix to his Dungeon Master's Guide listing the books that inspired him to create his fantasy role-playing game."

https://gamerplus.org/newsfeed/2235

That's it for now. Stay in touch and keep on gaming.

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

What gaming have you been doing lately? Let us know. Send me links or post on Gamer+ and I will include you in this newsletter.

And come tonight to Inspired Unreality to remember player characters passed.
