In addition, I wish I understood  OSRS GP anything regarding your parent firm MacArthur. They are a ghost in the internet. Furthermore, the only think I truly do know is that Jagex has given up on every game they have ever tried to make out of RuneScape. There was no option for simply updating skills or stating I don't need you to concentrate on some of those choices at all. Eventually for the query,"what do you consider customer care?" An option ought to be,"What customer service?"

Repeatable quests, HD customers, once again hoping to push new abilities, etc.. Questions regarding how polling content works specifically is terrifying, provided Jagex's recent penchant for only forcing content that has failed multiple surveys through as ethics updates.

Not to mention: Asking for people's favourite games, place of residence, employment status, and even their contact number is very inappropriate for this type of survey. Appears nakedly enjoy an attempt for collecting marketing data available. Editing this in now that I think about it more: The more I consider the telephone number bit, the slimier it feels to be fair. Most of us know fully damn well that Jagex is not going to call anybody who answers this survey. Leading people to give their personal information to a poll under the guise of"Wow you're so smart, perhaps we'll call you to your opinions on upcoming stuff!" Is totally disgusting, and if anything else, I did not respond extreme enough.

The main answer I gave in this survey I wish to get around: The last decision on any content should be produced with BOTH the community AND Jagex working together to produce content that's actually worth adding to Runescape. Players have demonstrated they'll vote yes to a pretty absurd shit (See the Tome debacle) where Jagex needs to step in and understand that asking was a mistake, even while Jagex has also demonstrated when they forge ahead in their own it doesn't work out nicely for us. Trying to frame this query since an either/or is leaving out a huge amount of nuance in the problem, and this is something which applies to numerous issues discussed in the poll.

This survey provides me the vibes that you guys actually want to be known to your communication with your community, and that you're well knowledgeable about the gaming world around you. Neither of them are especially correct. Jagex"communicates" with their community more than a number of other games, but not nearly the maximum, particularly once you don't count polls which are crampacked full of voting biasing issues, questions which shouldn't be inquired, and (what feels like) intentional misinformation or lack of crucial information required to make an educated decision.

You are very afraid of buy old school rs gold repeatable quests and OSRS HD which will be discretionary and that won't impact you at all in any way, nor will either influence Runescape for you because you is cosmetic and the other won't give rewards? This kind of overreaction makes it hard to choose what you are saying seriously. And new abilities - those things that a large majority of players want, but maybe not quite 75% in any particular case - yes, truly Jagex are blowing off their entire player-base here. Don't forget the large number of people that spite vote contrary to pvp updates simply because they don't enjoy the community. Unpolled changes are fine if that's the case.

"Wee Will" is Caper's song of reckless spending, a favorite of proprietors of gambling establishments and sure to earn him a spot on their stage. "Wee Will" has many verses in which Will alternately gets rich and poor and in which he remains happy throughout. Here's the first two verses.

Wee Will was born
with nary a coin
and his parents had naught neither
His Ma said
Will is gonna be rich
but no one would believe her.

But then one day
Around mid may
Will tripped and skint his knee.
And what did he see
buried under the tree?
'twas the shiny glint of gold.

(everybody sing along)
Gold, gold, gold, gold, gold, gold, gold, gold,
Gold, gold, gold, gold, gold, gold, gold, gold.

He's rich beyond his wildest dreams. But of course it doesn't last.

Tonight on Inspired Unreality Vivian and I will be writing more verses to "Wee Will". Join us to write verses or just to chat about whatever you want, as long as it's gaming. Bring your own topic. All gaming is on topic.

Inspired Unreality is held in the gamerplus chat rooms at Tenkar's Tavern on Discord every Monday night at 9:00 Central. More info and an invite here.

Next week.

Inspired Unreality
September 20, 2021 at 9:00 PM Central

Special Guest - Robert S. Conley, Creator of Blackmarsh and The Majestic Fantasy RPG

Our topic will be the difference between writing classic D&D vs. 5e?
How to write for both?
How to convert from OSR to 5e?

I know that sounds like three topics but they are very closely intertwined.

Looking forward to this.

I have written another chapter for my book, "Setting Up A Twitch Studio, Using Tech Creatively". It's called "Get Back On That Treadmill" and it may be the last chapter. The last chapter in the book, not the last chapter to be written.

https://gamerplus.org/blogs/post/822

Last night we watched "Eye of the Beholder: The Art of Dungeons and Dragons" on Amazon Prime. They definitely got into the idea of creative flow, a key concept in my book.

I also want to mention that Will Hose, long time family friend and gamerplus gamer, Spark, is moving back to Jonesboro. It will be great to have him close at hand again. Will has been a regular guest at our events and our podcasts. I hope to get him to run a game on Inspired Unreality later this year.

Ok, this just happened to me and it will happen to you if you undertake a creative project with a schedule.

Things go wrong. Life happens. Stuff breaks. It's inevitable.

My router went out. And before it went out it went intermittent. So I missed a stream.

I checked everything out. I reset the router. I was at the piano. And before I even started to play the internet went out. I knew it just wasn't going to happen.

Fortunately I called my ISP and he helped me detect the problem and I had another router in place for my next stream. But it can be worse.

Way worse. Sometimes stuff comes up and you miss a week or more.

My advice. As soon as you can, get back on that treadmill. Yeah it was kind of nice not having to do all that production work and promotion. It's always nice to have a little extra time in your day.

Still periods of creative flow don't happen all the time. They are to be treasured. Get back on the treadmill and make it happen. Again. Churn it out.

This is a different issue than making a decision to take your efforts elsewhere. To write a game instead of playing some games. To write a book instead of writing more music. These decisions are for you to make. It's your life to live.

But don't let temporary technical problems or real life issues interrupt your flow. Get back on the treadmill.

There are some related issues. Sometimes you have downtime that doesn't affect the stream but hinders some other aspect of your work flow.

After my ISP and I determined that my router was bad I went and pulled another router off the back wall of my house where it sprays wifi out to the icosahedron. I replaced my router with this router (thanks Megan) and we had internet back. Except for one thing.

For my network setup I use the DD-WRT firmware because it supports virtual LANs. I have one LAN on 192.168.1.1 and another LAN on 192.168.2.1. The first is for our daily internet use, wired and wifi computers and other devices that need to connect to the internet. The second is for my web servers, the ones that host hairylarryland.com and hairylarry.rocks. There's a firewall. It's a security thing.

Unfortunately the router I pulled of the back wall doesn't support DD-WRT. So I ordered another, even more up to date router, that does support DD-WRT. Which means a weeks downtime on my servers.

So I can't post to hairylarryland.com and even worse my peertube instance runs on hairylarry.rocks. So it's part of my workflow to post to these sites and I can't so I have to devise workarounds to post my videos and promote them on time. I can still upload to the Live Music Archive and Youtube. I can still promote the Youtube videos but I can't promote the playlists which live on peertube.

And then when I get my new router in, burn DD-WRT to the firmware, and configure it I will have to play catch up.

Sometimes playing catch up will hit you in the back of the head. I played my Sunday stream just before everything went haywire. I missed my Tuesday stream. Then after I patched things together I played my Thursday stream and I logged my songs.

When I went to edit the videos I checked my Sunday stream for the notes.txt file and guess what? I never made these 10 videos. I logged them. Things went haywire. And I got off my procedure.

So instead of having 5 videos to edit I had 15. That's when you really have to buckle down. It's possible to catch up. I did it. It really helped that I was familiar with my work flow. I have to admit I spent less time on some of the videos than I would have if I wasn't playing catch up.

So here's your executive summary.

Technical problems or life issues. Get back on the treadmill.

Missed part of the workflow for a short period. Catch up.

The most important thing, however, is right now going forward. The essence of maintaining your creative flow is to absorb yourself in your project and to just do it. The most important stuff is the stuff you are working on right now.

I found this.

"Flash Lingo: A Thieves Cant Dictionary" is the most comprehensive Thieves Cant glossary ever assembled. With over 2,200 entries, this volume has been compiled from historical resources and edited to specifically support fantasy role-playing games. More importantly, it is designed to bring the lexicon of Thieves Cant to life in your campaign world, as an aid for both players and DMs alike. It’s also just a damn enjoyable read!

We had a good chat last week night at Inspired Unreality with both Alan and Datum joining Vivian and myself. As happens with those two we drifted off of games and into philosophy.

Next week Inspired Unreality will be about Science Fiction and Fantasy. We do this on the first Monday of the month. That's right, it's almost September already.

And tonight we're winging it. Vivian and I have a fallback plan where we work on our Milyagon locale. Or you may want to chat about something else. Bring your own topic. All gaming is on topic.

NEA Game Fest is in October and my kids are hard at work making preparations.

https://gamerplus.org/newsfeed/4230

Vivian and I had a little conversation about confidence that's almost a ditty.

All you need is confidence in what you already have and the ability to find what you need.

I have confidence that we can navigate this dungeon and find the treasure.

I have confidence that you can. It's me I'm not sure about.

I have confidence that I can. You have to find your own confidence.

https://gamerplus.org/newsfeed/4188

And I posted a chapter about checklists for my book in progress, "Setting Up A Twitch Studio, Using Tech Creatively".

https://gamerplus.org/blogs/post/817

Let us know what games you've been playing, what songs you've been singing, what stories you've been writing. Post to Gamer+, a social network for creative gamers. Or contact Hairy Larry below. See you tonight on Inspired Unreality.

Checklists

A procedure document outlines in detail how to accomplish a task. In my career in office automation I wrote a lot of procedure documents. When you're at a workplace with turnover procedure documents provide continuity when personnel changes. They can be used to train new employees and then the new employees can refer to the procedure document until they learn how to do the task.

In your own technical creative projects you probably don't really need procedure documents. They are a lot of work to make, very detailed, and you are probably not going to be training new employees because you probably don't have employees.

A checklist is a different beast. Each item on a checklist reminds you of the next thing to do so you don't skip steps. You just start at the top and continue down the list until you're done.

On my checklist, some of the items, like uploading the videos to the Live Music Archive, take a long time. So after that checklist item I place an = (equal sign) to signify a multitasking opportunity.

I look down the list for an = in the left column and I can continue there, doing other items on the list until the upload is complete. After the upload is done I can finish the skipped part of the list. The part that needed the upload to be completed to continue.

If there's just an = without an = in the left column below, that means there is a multitacking opportunity here to do something entirely different like cook or take a nap. When I upload to Youtube it takes awhile but I can't really start the promotion without having the Youtube video ready. So, take a break, read some news on the internet, or whatever.

You can (and should) devise your own notation for your checklist. Your project and promotion will have different steps and needs. Different opportunities for multitasking. Figure out what works for you.

Checklists with actual check boxes are commonly used in manual procedures but you don't need check boxes on your checklist. I mean I know the task I just finished so I just do the next item on the list.

Production checklists soon become memorized, perhaps because when you skip a step it usually results in extra work. Promotion checklists, however, are really helpful, because most web promotion is a series of independent tasks and it's really easy to forget one and miss out on that promotion.

Your tasks will be different and your promotion will be different so your checklists will be different. Checklists are a useful tool in many endeavors but especially useful for tech creators.

Here's a sample checklist that I use after I produce the video excerpts from my twitch stream (the top item on the list). The first half is uploading and adding details to the upload sites. The second half is promotion of the uploaded content.

- edit and render videos in Openshot
- rename videos with an NN_ prefix in chronological order
- capture a screen shot
- scale the screen shot
- create list.txt listing the numbered songs
- copy and edit notes.txt changing the date and updating the list
- convert mp4 files to mp3s in VLC
- normalize the mp3s in mp3DirectCut
- rename mp3 files
- upload audio item to the Live Music Archive
- upload video item to the Live Music Archive =
- update metadata in audio item
- bookmark audio item
- add audio item to kgpl
- add audio item to mixremix radio in /radio/TWStream

=
- create playlist on peertube
- make public and assign to twitch.tv/hairylarryland
- copy playlist link
- refresh 2x
- use song.txt to create description
- change playlist link in song.txt
- change date in song.txt
- upload mp4 files to peertube, in order
- search and replace song title in song.txt
- fill out screen
- wait for publish button =
- copy the share link
- edit description adding share link
- save to playlist
- after all the files are uploaded check the playlist
- upload to Youtube
- use song text for description =

- promote youtube and peertube playlist
- allow several hours between promotions
- always use the peertube text for description
- share youtube on facebook and twitter from youtube share panel
- share youtube on friendica
- share to hairylarryland tumblr
- reblog that post everywhere
- share on reddit freeculture and creativecommons
- share on hairylarryland Discord
- share to MixRemix and Hairy Larry Rocks
- post to write.as - youtube link and text from peertube
- Add youtube to Hairy Larry Rocks Links
- Add playlist to Hairy Larry Rocks Links

Inspired Unreality open game chat is tonight at 9:00 PM Central. Lately we've been chatting with Bruce or Alan so Caper's Song Book is on the back burner. It is open game chat, after all, so if you want to help Ari and Caper write the song of reckless spending called "Wee Will" we would be glad to do that.

Or, whatever you want to talk about. All gaming is on topic. Inspired Unreality is held every Monday night in the gamerplus chatrooms at Tenkar's Tavern on Discord. Never been? We've got an invitation for you here.

https://gamerplus.org/index

So, let me give Alan a plug. He's got a game called The Chronicles of Ember. Here's his link. Reach out to him and he will be glad to let you know all about it.

https://gamerplus.org/user/Alan

My granddaughter Liz wants me to remind you that she's awesome. She also joins us sometimes on Inspired Unreality.

https://gamerplus.org/user/SearchingForGyphons

I've been working on promoting my twitch stream so here goes. If you're on twitch please Follow.

https://www.twitch.tv/hairylarryland

If you want to give my chill jazz piano a listen I have a page of playlists here.

https://peertube.hairylarry.rocks/video-channels/twitch/video-playlists

And I set up a blog inviting collaboration with songs and scripts that I think will help guest musicians. I have my videos available for download without recompression so twitch streamers can use them as backing tracks while they solo over them.

https://minizines.cc/collaborate/

I am thinking of moving this over to collaborate.hairylarryland.com if I can figure that out.

All of my songs are licensed Creative Commons Attribution so you can use them on your podcast, vlog, game, or movie.

Are you on twitch? Let me know. I love hearing from you.

Tonight on Inspired Unreality Ari and Caper continue their work on Caper's Songbook. We have the opening verses for Caper's song of reckless spending called "Wee Will". Here we go.

Wee Will

Wee Will was born
with nary a coin
and his parents had naught neither
His Ma said
Will is gonna be rich
but no one would believe her.

But then one day
Around mid may
Will tripped and skint his knee.
And what did he see
buried under the tree?
'twas the shiny glint of gold.

Gold, gold, gold, gold, gold, gold, gold, gold,
Gold, gold, gold, gold, gold, gold, gold, gold.

Wee Will brought the coin
to his Ma at home
and they were rich as kings
with stars in his eyes
he looked to the skies
and dreamt of his favorite things.

His ma went to town
and the wheel goes round
she paid her bill and then she
loaded up on groceries
like she had no worries
and was left with just a penny.

Gold, gold, gold, gold, gold, gold, gold, gold,
Gold, gold, gold, gold, gold, gold, gold, gold.

Of course we need more tales of Wee Will getting alternately rich and poor.

So drop by tonight
And help us write
The song of reckless spending.

Inspired Unreality is held in the gamerplus chatrooms at Tenkar's Tavern on Discord. For more info go here.

Since we started on Caper we'll end on Caper.

In our 5e family game on Friday Caper the Giant Killer slew another Giant Beast or I should say Caper set the trap and the party beat the daylights out of him and his troll minion. It only cost Caper 5 gold to get a plaque hung in the inn with the giant's sword saying This Giant was killed by Caper the Giant Killer and Company. Caper is a halfling Bard and in the music business it's all hype.

https://gamerplus.org/newsfeed/4213

And that's the Gamer+ News of Caper, my favorite D&D character who I have played longer than the age of some of my grandkids playing in the game.

Let me know about your favorite D&D character.

Welcome to Inspired Unreality open game chat, tonight at 9:00 PM Central in the gamerplus chatrooms at Tenkar's Tavern on Discord. If you've never been to Tenkar's Tavern there's a link for you here.

First on the agenda tonight will be working on Caper's song of reckless spending, a favorite of proprietors in gambling houses everywhere Caper goes. So far I've got something about the wheel goes round but we're going to hammer it out tonight and I need your help.

Last week Alan joined us and we talked a bit about SF and Fantasy books and a bit about writing, discussing our current projects. Alan is working on his Ember module called "Mine". I have run it once at ARRPGCon and once online and it was fun both times.

https://gamerplus.org/user/Alan

He will tell you about The Chronicles of Ember here.

https://chroniclesofember.com/2018/04/10/welcome-to-ember/

I am reading Rebecca Roanhorse. Her novel, "Black Sun", is a Hugo finalist this year and deserves to win. (Although I haven't read any of the other finalists yet. They probably all deserve to win.) She also writes YA Fantasy stories based on Navajo mythology. More here.

https://gamerplus.org/newsfeed/4199

And I posted another chapter for my book, "Setting Up A Twitch Studio - Using Tech Creatively" called Backup Overview and Strategy. Yeah, I know. Boring. But essential!

https://gamerplus.org/blogs/post/806

Come to Inspired Unreality tonight to help Caper finish his song of reckless spending. One more page in Caper's Songbook, soon to be a minizine resource for bard's everywhere.

Spread the word.
