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!


https://www.dumbingofage.com/2010/comic/book-1/01-move-in-day/home/


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

Here's my icosahedron. It's part of my recording studio, acoustic room, vocal booth, out of control room. I'm going to make a sign that says Roll To Hit. A double double-entendre.

I'm still recuperating from our Family Game Weekend. But I'll be fine for Inspired Unreality. Come and chat. Post some pics. Share your creative endeavors.

Here it is the day after pi day and we already ate all the pie. Tell me I don't have pie in my face.

Better than that we have Inspired Unreality open game chat tonight at 9:00 Central. After a month of podcasts and actual play we might just chat tonight. Opening topic will be random encounters. Are they useful? Do you use them in your games? Can the characters even tell the difference between a random encounter and monsters that are scripted into the module?

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

We had a good game last week with Ryan joining Viv and me and Alan presiding. Inspired Unreality open game chat continues with chat, games, and podcasts. It's what we do. I hope you can make it tonight so we can have a random encounter.

ZDL showed some dice that are actually gems.

https://gamerplus.org/newsfeed/3779

I loved the 20 sider with hieroglyphs instead of numbers so I had to post my own Icosahedron. I know you've seen some large 20 siders. But probably not as large as this one.

https://gamerplus.org/newsfeed/3780

Yes it was hard to build. But it's even harder to roll.

Anyway, while we're all getting icosahedral, show us your favorite 20 sider. We'll be happy to roll with it.

Thanks,

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.

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.

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.

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."

    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.
