Tonight! Inspired Unreality! Open game chat at 9:00 Central in the gamerplus chatrooms at Tenkar's Tavern on Discord. Our opening topic will be magic systems. ZDL mentioned the Native American influences in Gunnerkrigg and it got me to thinking about how a magic system based on Native American folklore would work. Spirituality, talking to animals, sweat lodges, drugs, transmutation. Magic systems are a fascinating part of RPGs and fantasy literature. Join us tonight for an interesting discussion.

As always bring your own topic. All gaming is on topic. If you have never been to Tenkar's Tavern we have an invite for you here.

New in my non-gaming world I am almost done with my book, "Beginning Algorithmic Composition", and I started work on a website to host it.

Also I am gathering together all my stuff setting up a studio for a twitch stream. Twitch is all about gaming but I'm doing something different. A twitch stream where I practice piano. I am viewing it as a live stream and a video production environment. We shall see!?! Eventually.

Be sure to update me with what's new in your life. Contact info is below or even better, post your latest interests on Gamer+.

Thanks,

Tonight on Inspired Unreality our opening topic will be Befriending Monsters. Are all monsters evil? Can this be a viable strategy for the party? And how should the DM react to a player character communicating with the monsters that are put there for the party to fight? Should module writers include befriending monsters as an option?

As always Inspired Unreality open game chat is held Monday nights at 9:00 in the gameplus chatrooms at Tenkar's Tavern on Discord. Bring your own topic. All gaming is on topic. If you haven't been to Tenkar's Tavern we have an invitation for you here.

Here's four webcomics that I like and some of them even have something to do with gaming.


I don't like rom com movies much. In fact I don't like movies much. I prefer my TV in small doses. But I do read a lot of coming of age fantasy and science fiction which is kind of close to rom coms. Especially "The Wheel Of Time" which I am definitely planning on rereading, all 14 volumes.


But it turns out that I like rom com webcomics. I guess the dosage is about right.


"Questionable Content" is alternative history science fiction. It's present day but in the recent past Hannelore's dad discovered true AI and built it into robots. So it's a rom com with robots. (Shades of Isaac Asimov) It's actually my current fav and it turns out I must have started it in the middle because when I went to episode 1 to link here I hadn't read it. But there is an AI robot right at the start. Plus rom com. It is a lot different than the more recent episodes but I'm restarting at the top and you can too.

Oh yeah, it's drawn by J. Jacques. And it's 5 days a week.


Dumbing Of Age is a College Webcomic by David M. Willis. This is my latest fav and it's actual contemporary fiction rom com. It has more about cartoons than about games although D&D does get an occasional mention. Big on superheroes too with an actual superhero character who is actually just a shy girl with tendencies towards violence.


7 days a week. Yaaaaaay!

The absolute best webcomic ever is all about D&D with in jokes right from the first episode. The Order Of The Stick is about an adventuring party drawn as stick figures. If you haven't already read this it's a treat. The only bad thing about it is that it's a weekly so I save it for my weekend reading. It's by Rich Burlew.

And my new find is Gunnerkrigg Court. It's also in a school setting but so far not a rom com. Definitely fantasy and I'm not far enough into it to tell you much more. Except that I like it so far. Not sure of the publishing schedule but the art is great and it's drawn by Tom Siddell.

Please add your favorite webcomics in the comments. Especially if they are about gaming.


Thanks
