Gamer+ News June 28, 2021 from hairylarry's blog

Tonight! On Inspired Unreality. We will be chatting about games, or playing games, or maybe chatting about books, science fiction and fantasy literature. What we've read and what we like. Books. Games. Chat.

Inspired Unreality is held every Monday night at 9:00 Central in the gamerplus chatrooms at Tenkar's Tavern on Discord. If you've never been there's an invite here.

ZDL posted Deep Dive: OSR Critique about her actual experience in the OSR world when it was just called D&D.

"To establish my credentials, I have been playing RPGs of all kinds since 1977.  My first exposure to the genre was the 1977 "Blue Book" edition and I have backfilled experience with the original books, not to mention gone forward into both branches of D&D (Advanced and what would later become the Cyclopedia).  I played through the explosion of creativity in the '80s, witnessed the rise of story games (playing many of them, though not the White Wolf line of Storyteller games—I hated those), and continued through to the present day where I play intensely story-oriented games (FATE, Spark, Mythic, etc.) as well as some OSR or OSR-alike games (most notably Mazes & Minotaurs).  I am emphatically not a young-un telling grandpa what's what.  I'm one of the grandparents saying what actually was."

And she has some opinions. As always, a good read. In case you also have opinions there's a comment section.

RickStump joined the Related to Geeks Book club group. Megan and I did the podcast for a year and then went on to bigger and better things. (Hello Flunking The Written and twitch) I still read every day and would love to have a monthly book discussion. So, starting next week and continuing the first Monday of every month the opening topic at Inspired Unreality will be science fiction and fantasy literature with frequent forays into SF&F movies and games.

I posted a new photo gallery, The Masks Of The Zuni. If you are needing images of a witch doctor, shaman, or other all around weirdo these are public domain. There's even a bizarro Hairy Larry.

Thanks,
Hairy Larry

    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.

    A couple cards from this year’s swordtember! Doing this deck is part of the reason I did multiple weapon types this year.
