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.

Follow Me And Die has a new video up, Roll20 For The Absolute Beginner No. 23 - The End Is Near For Legacy Dynamic Lighting.

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.

https://gamerplus.org/newsfeed/2093

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 on Inspired Unreality we are back to actual play. Alan wrote "The Chronicles Of Ember" and he is our game master. We fought the big bad undead guy and somehow survived and now we're going after the double crosser who left us to die. We'll see how this all works out tonight. Jump in if you'd like.

Inspired Unreality open game chat is held in the gamerplus chatrooms at Tenkar's Tavern on Discord at 9:00 Central every Monday night. If you've never been to Tenkar's Tavern we have an invite for you here.

Next week on Inspired Unreality we will be hosting the Related To Geeks Podcast with special guests Levi Combs and Will Hose. Our topic will be:

What players love. What players hate. What DMs love. What DMs hate.

Now theres a topic where everyone has an opinion.

ZDL posted another Fringe Review: Bloodshadows: Fantasy-Noir Roleplaying and it is up to her usual detailed standard.

https://gamerplus.org/blogs/560

Follow Me And Die is interested in feedback. He says, "I'm working on a master spreadsheet of gear & supplies price list for D&D and other fantasy RPGs." He's got all kinds of details and he wants you to help fill in the blanks.

https://gamerplus.org/newsfeed/3417

There were a lot of great pictures posted on Gamer+ last week. MyrddinWyllt posted some gems to his gallery, Pulp Artwork And Inspiration.

https://gamerplus.org/photo/useralbum/MyrddinWyllt/97

And I took some of my best miniature photos to date. I printed it. I painted it. And I took the pictures. It's Ratzerker!

https://gamerplus.org/photo/useralbum/hairylarry/98

If you've got some favorite fantasy artwork or pics of your miniatures we'd love to see them. Just go to Photos and post your gallery.

Great game last Monday on Inspired Unreality. Vivian and I were joined by lizardqueen and Corgiface following Chen Chen the monk into a dungeon in search of a holy artifact and treasure!

Well, we almost died once. DM Alan certainly does keep the players on their toes.

We did not finish the oneoff in one session so there will be more Chronicles Of Ember next Monday.

https://gamerplus.org/newsfeed/3348

And now it's Monday and time for Inspired Unreality. Actual Play tonight with DM Alan running his own game, "The Chronicles Of Ember". If you want to jump in and you need a character sheet he has a program for that.

We will be playing 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. We start at 9:00 Central.

https://gamerplus.org/index

We continue our conversation about "Some musings on solving challenges with less combat."

https://gamerplus.org/newsfeed/3349

I set up a background for miniature photography using a mushroom fantasy village plaque that Megan woodburned for me and a bunch of tiny houses made of straw and twigs that Vivian gave me. Then I took a few pictures of The Blue Mage, a beastman, and a beholder.

https://gamerplus.org/photo/useralbum/hairylarry/96

I'm reminding you once again about Megan TV at https://www.twitch.tv/megantopia - Like indie games? So does Megan.

https://gamerplus.org/newsfeed/3342

And we're closing with some thoughts on winter. "Winter is upon us and it's a good thing to have distractions like Gamer+ to help us keep busy and active. Hope all of you are staying warm and content. ... Sound."

https://gamerplus.org/newsfeed/3347

Which reminds me, Ember is a cold cold world. And dangerous. Believe me, in our first encounter two of us almost died. Join us tonight for Inspired Unreality.

Tonight! On Inspired Unreality!! Actual Play!!!

Alan wrote the game "The Chronicles Of Ember". He will be the DM for a oneoff tonight.

https://gamerplus.org/user/Alan

So, if you want to give a new game a try, join us. If I were to describe "The Chronicles Of Ember" in one word it would be dangerous. (And fun.)

Inspired Unreality is held every Monday night at 9:00 Central in the gamerplus chatrooms at Tenkar's Tavern on Discord. If you are new to Tenkar's Tavern we have an invitation for you here.

This picture keeps getting comments. ZDL says "There is rather a lot going on in this picture... ". This is true.

The Captive Robin

Click on over and add your comment. There's enough here for a whole campaign.

Follow Me And Die posted to his blog about "Magical Protections". He says "Spells and abilities that negate or remove magical effects are a bit confusing in AD&D and the DM would be well served to figure things out before they come up during play."

https://gamerplus.org/newsfeed/3343

relatedtogeeks posted about Megan TV at https://www.twitch.tv/megantopia - Like indie games? So does Megan.

https://gamerplus.org/newsfeed/3322

I have posted a new gallery of public domain fantasy art called, John Anster Fitzgerald takes us to Feyland. Fitzgerald was a Victorian illustrator who specialized in fairies and other fey creatures.

https://gamerplus.org/photo/useralbum/hairylarry/94

After looking at these pictures sound and I started discussing fairytales. Fairytales predate history and yet are still being written in the 21st century, often melded with other types of literature. Click the link to join the discussion.

Not gaming related but still somehow pertinent ZDL posted a music video from  自得琴社 Zi De Guqin Studio. She says, "This group does recreations of ancient works, new works done in ancient styles, modern-style orchestration with ancient instruments, and off-the-wall stuff like one of their orchestral pieces where a didgeridoo is a prominent instrument."

Follow Me And Die posted his year in review blog post. He starts with the stats and the business but then segues into a moving and personal piece of writing. This is your recommended read for the day.

https://gamerplus.org/newsfeed/3206

Relatedtogeeks posted a link to the new Save Or Die podcast, Start! Thief!, wherein their guest, Darrold Wagner, discusses the origins of the thief class.

https://gamerplus.org/newsfeed/3207

I wrote up the latest session notes for our Archive Of The White Master campaign. We are putting the Archive in our past (kind of like 2020) and pressing on with the issue of animals being trapped in the forest. Led by Leaf the elf we discover the problem is more than hungry goblins and we rescue Boffin the halfling.
