Two weeks ago we recorded the Related To Geeks Podcast with guests Levi Combs and Will Hose. "What players love. What players hate. What DMs love. What DMs hate." It was a hoot. And it's up on Anchor.

Sound and Larry both like Carl's picture from his B/X game at FLGS. Check out this miniature photography of an actual table in play.

If you have some photos of your miniatures we'd love to see them.

We always start the Related to Geeks Podcast with our geek agendas. My geek agenda is I'm writing a book, Beginning Algorithmic Composition, for my composition lesson this term. I'll post a link when it's published.

Last week we recorded the Related To Geeks Podcast. It was a lot of fun when those who are Related to Geeks were joined by Levi Combs and Will Hose to discuss "What players love. What players hate. What DMs love. What DMs hate". Mostly we leaned toward the love. Stay tuned in and I will let you know when the podcast is posted. Lots of great tips for players and DMs.

I hope you've been enjoying the winter weather as much as we have here in Arkansas. Compared to Texas we didn't really have it too bad. All prayers for those still suffering from the extreme cold and ice.

Follow Me And Die posts about "My thoughts on Getting Started with Science Fiction RPGs."

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.

https://gamerplus.org/newsfeed/3012

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.

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.

Earlier this year on Inspired Unreality the Related To Geeks Book Club discussed "Armada" by Ernest Cline. Our podcast is now up on anchor. If you are a big fan you will want to leave a comment because neither Megan or I were impressed. Here's the link.

I've been posting session summaries from our Archive Of The White Mage quest so I thought I would post a session from someone else's game. From Northport here's "OSE play session with the gang 10/17".

For those of you keeping up with "The Archive of the White Master" I posted Session 4. Executive summary: Marusan is dead. (for now) We got another pet. (Rowan the bear-dog) We're back at town with pockets full of platinum and magic weapons.

Read all about it here.

And speaking about podcasts and archives I have a new weekly podcast, From The Archives Of Something Blue. 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.

    This heres a small attempt at trying to bring a more 3.5e esque casting system to 5e. Its mostly experimental here, but I think it turned out to be a fun subclass.

    But yeah, its sorta a 1|1/3rd caster, gaining the regular spells of a wizard plus a few extra lower level spells per day, with the downside being those spells use vancian casting.

    I might re-use this system for something else in the future at some point, probably for a full class or variant spellcasting system, like the Spell Points in the DMG.

    Hello all!

    This is the free pack for the Rustic Furniture assets 2! Containing 26 assets all ready to go and use to make an awesome looking house or building in your TTRPG games!

    In the complete pack of the assets, you will find over 130+ assets, many are combinations of the assets I made last week but there are also a bunch of new assets that people requested, including tankards, glasses, wine bottles, rubbish, bowls etc!

    With the combined assets, like the setup tables you should be able to make an interesting room super quickly without having to place down each asset! If I do more packs in the future I think having these options is invaluable for creating maps and encounters quickly so I will definitely do more :) 

    This pack is available for free over on patreon!

    We had caeora as a guest on Inspired Unreality.

    Compete to be the best at the Holiday tournament. Jousting, archery, sword fighting! Or grab a cup of warm mulled wine and enjoy watching the competition.

    I LOVE the Riyria book series, so when I started making a tournament map, my mind kept coming back to the Wintertide tournament in book 5. And I decided I needed to do a snowy version for a holiday tournament 🙂 You can get this free on http://AngelaMaps.com with a small logo.

    There is also a summer version and night versions available, as well as the Foundry VTT and Fantasy Grounds versions on my Patreon.
