FollowMeAndDie posted Episode 179 - Space Battle In Stars Without Number.

He says "In last night's session of the Stars Without Number campaign, A Plague of Angels, we had more of the combat that started the session before. I got to roll for shots by allied & friendly NPC ships VS. enemy ships and I rolled a ridiculous amount of 18, 19, & 20, plus decent damage."

The RSS Feeds in the footers are blogs, vlogs, or podcasts by gamers on Gamer+. If you click on Podcasts you get a feed of only Podcasts. At the bottom of the Blogs page is a feed of only blogs.


The real gem in this lot is the link to View last 60 items here in the footer on ever page. This is a great way to find a bunch of recently posted gaming info.


If you have a blog, vlog, podcast, or anything else with an RSS feed let me know and I will add it.


Message me on my profile - hairylarry


Thanks

Sometimes it's late at night and the house is quiet. You don't really want to play a video or listen to a podcast and wake everyone up. You just want to read some gaming blogs.


So I added a new feature, an RSS feed of just blogs written by Gamer+ gamers.


And you can find it near the bottom of the Blogs page. Click Blogs on the menu. Scroll down to the top of the footer. There it is.


If you write a blog, or post your art on a blog, or have a blog for your gaming company let me know. I will add you to this feed.


Email hairylarry@deltaboogie.com or message me on Gamer+.

Gamer+ News September 9, 2019

Inspired Unreality happens tonight at 9:00 pm Central in the gamerplus chatrooms at Tenkar's Tavern on Discord. Tonight is open game chat. There has been a lot of discussion about online RPGs on Gamer+ so our initial topic will be "Running an online game". If you haven't noticed I always pick something I want to learn about for the initial topic.

As always you can suggest your own topic or just talk about whatever you want to. All tabletop gaming is on topic, board games and card games as well as RPGs.

Next week we will have a guest, Mr. Welch aka TheGlen will join us to discuss Mystara, Mr. Welch's list, and gaming in general. Yep, it's Ask TheGlen Anything (about gaming), September 16 on Inspired Unreality.

Last week we recorded the Related To Geeks Podcast where Megan, Carl, and I discussed the topic of "Winging It". Sarah and Vivian joined in when they could in text chat. Here's the link.

You can now add RSS feeds to your profile and to your Groups. Using RSS feeds you can automatically get your latest posts, podcasts, or videos to display on your profile page. If you don't know what this means message me on Gamer+ and I'll try to help you out with it.

Thanks to Tenkar for this Tenkar's Tavern blog post about Gamer+.

tenkarstavern.com/2019/09/a-look-at-gamers-rpgs-tabletop-network.html

He has some good ideas on how to improve the site and he also sent a lot of new gamers our way with our total membership now nearing 120.

Which leads me right into my weekly rant.

This week I'm asking for your help to grow Gamer+. If you have a blog add us to your blogroll. If you're a podcaster or video producer give us a mention and add a link to your show notes.

The best way to link to us is to link to your profile. Gamers who follow you want to go to your profile, not to the front page of some website they don't know anything about. At the bottom of your profile is a text box explaining how to do this. There are also detailed instructions here.

gamerplus.org/blogs/25

We also have some banners on our Gamer+ Links page.

gamerplus.org/banners

And if you have a blog, podcast, or video channel we are not already promoting in our footer send me a message or just post your link. We want to add your gaming content to our RSS feed.

Thanks,
Hairy Larry

If the page for your Group could benefit with up to date content delivered by RSS you can now add an RSS feed to your group. This might be especially good on Groups centered around a specific game where the game creators have a what's new blog for their game.


If you want to see how this works I added an Oxwall Support Blog to the Development and Testing Group. Click over to see how it works.


If you can think of an RSS feed pertinent to your group go ahead and add it. Let me know if you have any problems.


Thanks

Gamer+ News, August 12, 2019

We have a guest tonight on Inspired Unreality, Caeora is a fantasy artist and mapmaker who has been working on Dungeonfog's Project Deios. We are going to have Ask Me Anything (about gaming) followed by our usual open game chat. Inspired Unreality starts at 9:00 PM, Central Time at Tenkar's Tavern on Discord.

Our ranks continue to grow. We now have over 70 gamers on Gamer+. And I've got to tell you, we are mostly creators including writers, artists, vloggers, and podcasters.

We have added gamer RSS feeds and homepage links for their blogs, podcasts, video channels, chat, actual play... You will see this in the footer on every page. The real gem is the "View last 60 items here" link. This updates more quickly than the FeedGrabbr scroll and it has the actual posts with pics and videos included.

And at the bottom of your profile page there is a tool to help you link to your profile page on Gamer+. Your audience wants to read your profile and they may stick around and join.

The final piece of news this week is that starting Monday, August 2, Inspired Unreality will host the Related To Geeks podcast, the podcast of a geeky family. We will discuss The Geek Topic and then go into open game chat. Everyone is welcome to participate. We are planning on making this a monthly event.

Please comment below.

Thanks

There's always room for improvement, especially on any web project, but I have all 4 legs reaching the ground so I'll take a minute to explain our new aggregated RSS feed featuring always new content created by Gamer+ gamers.


Most blogs, podcasts, and video channels have RSS feeds. (or atom feeds, same thing but different) When people follow a podcast so they don't miss any episodes they often use the RSS feed so their podcast is updated in their feedreader or even auto downloaded to their device.


Many of the gamers on Gamer+ are content creators. I am, Carl is, The EvilDM is, and lots more. As you will see. So my idea was to find a way to promote their work right here on this site to make it easy for gamers to find the podcasts, blogs, videos, etc. that other gamers on Gamer+ are creating.


So I installed Tiny Tiny RSS and TheEvilDM and I have been busy subscribing to all the feeds we can find that other gamers on this site have available.


If we missed you let us know in the comments. If you start a new web project let us know. Even if it doesn't have an RSS feed let us know. We want to feature your stuff.


So the four legs of the stool are:


1. A scrolling auto updating display of all the new posts on all the feeds we have subscribed to on Tiny Tiny RSS. This is on the left above the banner in the footer.


2. A link list to the homepages of 12 of these creators that changes each time you load a page. This is on the right above the banner in the footer.


3. An auto updating link list to 60 recent posts from the Gamer+ creators. You can access this link at the bottom left of item 2 above, the bottom left of the right block just above the footer. There, is that confusing enough? I think I'll just post the link here.


View last 60 items here


4. A manually updated categorized link list of all the homepages of every feed we have added to Tiny Tiny RSS. This is on the bottom right just above the banner and also on the far right in the footer next to Mobile version. And here's the link for that.


Gamer's Homepages


Did you notice I said manually updated? No, I don't type this stuff in. I run a program I wrote on the exported opml file from Tiny Tiny RSS and the program types it all in. Still it's a thing that has to happen so it won't always happen just as soon as the RSS feeds are updated. And it might happen before the RSS feeds are updated because there is often a delay of about an hour before new posts are displayed.


I am not done working on this but I am happy with it. It's really good. It's all there. It could be better. What else is new?


Like I said, if you're on Gamer+ we want to add your stuff. And if you're not on Gamer+, join, so we can add your stuff. There's a lot of content on Gamer+ already and more all the time. But the amount of content in these feeds that you can easily access right from the footer on every page is more than you will ever have time to consume.


So, Enjoy! And add a comment below.
