Tonight! On Inspired Unreality! It's the Related To Geeks Book Club.

We are reading "The Tower Of The Elephant" by Robert E. Howard. One of the first Conan stories.

There's still time to read it. It's a short story.

Coming up in February and March we will read.

February 17 - Little Brother by Corey Doctorow

March 16 - The Ocean at the End of the Lane by Neil Gaiman
Available on Overdrive and at libraries and booksellers everywhere.

If you have ideas about what you want to read after that we have a group for that.

You are invited to join and participate.

Imspired Unreality is held in the gamerplus chatrooms at Tenkar's Tavern on Discord. It's a book club and a podcast so we will be recording.

We posted two podcasts last week recorded on Inspired Unreality.

Related To Geeks - 2019 Geek Agenda

Ask The Glen anything (about cyberpunk)

Back at work organizing If You Play You Win actual play podcasts. Spark wants to run a game. Anyone else?

I now have three Mini Zines up at DriveThruRPG/Fiction. "Just Quest" is a very minimal OSR rule set. "Chaos In The Eye Of God" and "Yon Rogar’s Hat" are super shorts. They're free on DriveThru and on my Mini Zines website.

What have you been doing? Let me know. Let us all know. Post your links to Gamer+ and I'll include your project in Gamer+ News.

Tonight on Inspired Unreality TheGlen will talk about his new video channel. He says, "Well I just started a video channel regarding the game cyberpunk 2020 2 weeks ago and we've got cyberpunk 2077 coming out in April. This is the year of Mike Pondsmith."

Inspired Unreality is held in the gamerplus chatrooms at Tenkar's Tavern on Discord every Monday at 9:00 PM Central Time. Open Game Chat, all gaming is on topic.

Peter_R has a new game out, "The Things That Grown Ups Cannot See". This game is designed for children. The player characters are children that can see into the fey world as well as having other special abilities. Check it out, it's Pay What You Want on DriveThruRPG.

Carl Heyl is releasing his Stay At Home DM podcasts on the Related To Geeks Anchor channel. He says, "A project from almost 2 years ago is finally released to the public. I think I can promise it will be in the top 5% of cutest actual play podcasts you have heard." Very entertaining.

And I have two new minizines up at DriveThru. "Just Quest" is a fantasy roleplaying system in one minizine. "Chaos In The Eye Of God" is a super short science fiction story.

All of my minizines are free on DriveThru and on my own site,

Please post your projects on Gamer+ so I can include them in Gamer+ News. Your hype is our content. And spread the word. Let your friends know the joy of joining Gamer+ and getting the weekly news.

Tonight! On Inspired Unreality we will host the Related To Geeks Podcast discussing just what it was that we did in 2019. Looking back, not forward, we attended conventions, hosted conventions, produced podcasts, wrote minizines, shot vlogs, started Gamer+, yes, 2019 has been a big year for Related To Geeks.

Inspired Unreality is an open game chat held in the gamerplus chatrooms at Tenkars Tavern on Discord. As always, you are invited to participate. You can let us know what geeky stuff you did in 2019.

Our last podcast, Role Playing Memories, is here.

FollowMeAndDie went copper with his "Random Dungeon, City, & Travel Generation" pdf on DriveThruRPG.

He also released "Arctic & Glacial Terrain & Encounters". I read it and liked it and I wrote a short review about why I like it.

JesseQ and ZDL had a New Year's Eve dice rolling.

All I can say is "ZDL, what are those dice anyway?"

I started a Just Quest Group all about my Just Quest role playing system and our Milyagon adventures. I posted "Yon Rogar's Hat" to DriveThruRPG/Fiction and I'll soon have a link for "Just Quest" too.

Please stop by and join. It's kind of lonely in here now.

As I put our Milyagon Quests up on DriveThru I am taking the opportunity to rework the stats so they fit right with Just Quest. They started as generic OSR but I pulled from several different systems and the results are somewhat confused.

I know that roll low is a thing but I don't like that thing. Gamers want to roll high. A nat 20 or a 6 on a D6 should always be good. Never bad. So I got to fix that.

Got news? Let me know. I cover a lot of my projects here because I know about them. If I knew about your projects I would be glad to write about them. So let me know.
