Tonight on Inspired Unreality open game chat we will be discussing
making your own magic items, spells, and worlds. Join us in the
gamerplus chatrooms at Tenkars Tavern on Discord. In the open game
chat anyone can change topics and all gaming is on topic.

ZDL posted another great fringe review on Mythic, a game system
designed for winging it. This game can be played with a DM or without.
Solo or group. It has an interesting and simple mechanic. Read about it
here.

FollowMeAndDie reports on his Roll 20 game. He says, "In today's session
of my AD&D game, the party managed to get through a week of game time.
This included introducing two new players & characters into the party,
surviving an ambush, & finally getting to the sand ships to sail across
the desert to face the Son of The Necromancer." Read more here.

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.

Then we decided on the books for the next three months.

July 20 - Warbreaker - Brandon Sanderson
August 17 - Armada - Ernest Cline
September 21 - Gilgamesh

The Brandon Sanderson book is licensed Creative Commons. Sanderson discusses what this means here.

"Warbreaker" is available for free download on unglue.it. Mobi, epub, and pdf formats are available.

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.

Fun!

Yesterday was Mothers Day and my granddaughter's birthday so the Related To Geeks crew spent the day in virtual visits and sharing special videos while we all stayed home. It was great. Not as good as it should have been but still, great.

Our favorite blogger and podcaster, FollowMeAndDie, has been doing everything he can to stay healthy during the pandemic only to discover that he has cancer. He discussed revising his plans on his podcast and blog. Please check in with him. All prayers that he will be fine. Best to you, brother.

https://gamerplus.org/newsfeed/2172

On Easter Sunday the Related To Geeks family had a game day on Megan's Discord, Megantopia. We did some crafts and played drawing games and word games on Jackbox. This was my first experience playing on Jackbox and Discord. As soon as I realized the game played on both screens at the same time everything was copacetic. I mean, I still lost every game but I wasn't completely confused while losing every game.

Have you been picking up your online game play during the lockdown? What are your favorite online gaming platforms? Post your game plans on Gamer+ and I will include them in this newsletter.
