Gamer+ News September 30, 2019

Inspired Unreality open game chat is tonight, Monday, September 30, at 9:00 pm Central in the gamerplus chatrooms at Tenkar's Tavern on Discord. I have a gig from 6:00 to ???, Bebop Beatniks is playing at The Crossing in Paragould, Arkansas, for A Taste Of The Ridge sponsored by the Downtown Paragould Association. So ... I will be in chat and probably at 9:00 but I may be late. Feel free to start without me. Post a topic or just chat.

Next week is the Related To Geeks Podcast on Inspired Unreality and I don't have a gig. So Yayyy!

The scheduled If You Play You Win actual play podcast, Escape from Mos Shuuta, has been rescheduled to November 1, 6:00 to 9:00 pm. You don't have to preregister to play but you can if you want. The character sheets are available at

http://guitarshowdown.com/hll/public/3d25dc

If you find a character you want to play let me know so I can move the character sheet to the Already Taken folder.

I created an If You Play You Win pdf using The Homebrewery website. You can see it or print it at the link above.

DragonMac will be showing Adventure Maximum at the Name Your Game Expo in Tulsa, Oklahoma on October 5 and 6.

I've been enjoying this post, Free and Pay-What-You-Want 5e DMs Guild Highlights: Week Ending 9.28.19, by Froth that I found in our RSS feed at the bottom of the Blogs page.

https://frothsofdnd.blogspot.com/2019/09/free-and-pay-what-you-want-5e-dms-guild_28.html

I downloaded the Magical Junk Drawer. I'm sure if I were a wizard I would have a drawer full of stuff like that. Froth says, "Fun and creative collection of very minor magic items, such as the Exfoliator, which magically removes callouses, and Elminster's Earrings, which give an appearance of tiny dancing lights around the head of the wearer. Magical bric-a-brac."

Your mama always said that it's good to share so be sure to share Gamer+ with your friends.

If You Play You Win rescheduled to Friday, November 1.


If You Play You Win - Gamer+ Actual Play Podcast

Friday, November 1, 6:00 - 9:00 pm Central in the gamerplus chatrooms at Tenkar's Tavern.

DM Draklorx(Kier) - gamerplus.org/user/Draklorx

We'll be playing: Star Wars: Edge of the Empire

The module is the beginner game adventure called: Escape From Mos Shuuta

You are a group of outer rim fringers made up of bounty hunters, smugglers, explorers, and expatriates who have all run afoul of the crime lord, TEEMO THE HUTT! Trapped in the space port Mos Shuuta on the desert world of Tatooine you are running out of time and options, and need to get off of this planet fast! As luck would have it, a Trandoshan slaver by the name of Trex has recently docked his ship the Krayt Fang, and you wouldn't feel too bad about relieving the slaver of his ship. During a chase through the streets with Teemo's henchmen you duck into a Cantina and have only a few moments before they come in after you with their blasters ready.

You do not have to preregister to play. Anyone can jump in anytime. But if you want to preregister you can. Then you can choose your character from pregens. decide on your name, and be ready to go, blasters blazing.

You can peruse the pregens here. If you want to pick a character to play let me know. Message hairylarry at Gamer+ or email hairylarry@deltaboogie.com.

Inspired Unreality open game chat is tonight in the gamerplus chatrooms at Tenkar's Tavern on discord. Our starting topic will be d6 systems and Open D6. If you play d6 please join us. We need some expertise. We start at 9:00 pm Central.

We recorded Inspired Unreality last week and made a podcast called "Ask Mr. Welch aka TheGlen Anything (about gaming)". This is our first Gamer+ podcast and you can listen here.

anchor.fm/gamerplus

Some of the chat was about the art for the Mystara Players Handbook and Glen displayed the art on Discord while he discussed it. Of course, you can't see the art in the podcast so I am going to make a video slide show of that part of the episode so you can watch and listen at the same time just like we did.

You can download the Mystara Players Handbook here.

We are also planning an actual play podcast called "If You Play You Win". Our first session will be on Friday, October 4 from 6:00 to 9:00 pm Central. Draklorx will be running Escape From Mos Shuuta in Star Wars: Edge of the Empire. More info here.

And here's a link to the character sheets and a map.

Speaking of d6 games here's a link to FollowMeAndDie's blog post called "A New Found Appreciation For The 2d6 Table".

followmeanddie.com/2019/09/21/newfound-appreciation-of-the-2d6-table/

He also discusses this on his podcast.

We have a guest on Inspired Unreality tonight. Drop in at 9:00 pm Central for Ask Mr. Welch/TheGlen Anything (about gaming).

Inspired Unreality is an open game chat held in the gamerplus chatrooms at Tenkar's Tavern on Discord every Monday at 9:00 pm Central. For more information about Inspired Unreality or to join Gamer+ go to:

gamerplus.org

Sometimes it's late at night and the house is quiet. You don't really want to play a video or listen to a podcast and wake everyone up. You just want to read some gaming blogs.

So I added a new feature, an RSS feed of just blogs written by Gamer+ gamers.

And you can find it near the bottom of the Blogs page.

gamerplus.org/blogs

Aqualith unveiled their new logo.

DragonMac has been posting about Adventure Maximum

gamerplus.org/photo/view/407/latest

We have been discussing gaming online in several threads and on the Inspired Unreality open game chat. We are working on an actual play podcast called "If You Play You Win". One offs, pregens, anyone can jump in, rotating DMs, the DM chooses the system and the time and date. These games will be in the gamerplus chatrooms at Tenkar's Tavern and we will promote them on Gamer+ and at Tenkar's.

Interested in playing? Running a game? Let me know. I started a list.

Here's the story of my life (right now). I had a gig last night. I played in the Ken Carroll Quintet and NJHB at New Jazz In Jonesboro at the public library. I have a student small group rehearsal tonight. A Praise Band rehearsal tomorrow night. (also Inspired Unreality with Mr. Welch) Another student small group rehearsal on Tuesday. The Praise Band plays Wednesday night. Thursday I'm off. (naptime) Friday 10:00 and 11:00 oclock small groups at ASU and a game in the evening (Yay). Saturday morning at 9:00 am Bebop Beatniks is playing at the ASU Farmers Market. It gets this way for me every fall. I can't control it. Actually I like it. But I do have to budget my energy.

Are you tired and overburdened? Post about it on Gamer+.

gamerplus.org

How can people not believe in magic when they sleep and dream every night?

I have added a new question to your profile page, My blogs, vlogs, podcasts, websites.


So click on you avatar or username and add your stuff. These links do not have to be game related. Of course, if you have a gaming blog, vlog, or podcast we all want the link.


You can also post the link to your company if you are a publisher, artist, cartographer, writer or other creative.


Also if you post these links in Links on the top menu they will appear on the Main page until they scroll off. And they will appear in the sidebar on your profile page. These are good. But there's nothing quite as good as having your links front and center. Click on your name. See your links.


Starting a new project? Putting it on the web? Running a Kickstarter? Add the links.


Here's the link to my profile where you can see how this looks.

Sometimes it's late at night and the house is quiet. You don't really want to play a video or listen to a podcast and wake everyone up. You just want to read some gaming blogs.


So I added a new feature, an RSS feed of just blogs written by Gamer+ gamers.


And you can find it near the bottom of the Blogs page. Click Blogs on the menu. Scroll down to the top of the footer. There it is.


If you write a blog, or post your art on a blog, or have a blog for your gaming company let me know. I will add you to this feed.


Email hairylarry@deltaboogie.com or message me on Gamer+.



Doseyclwn asks "Where is the appropriate place for me to place work on a module/adventure and get people to comment on it?"

If you click Blog in the menu and add a new blog with your module text and a request for comments that will appear in the Newsfeed and gamers will be able to comment. Then I would also go into the Writing Modules and Module Assets Group and post a link to the blog again asking for feedback. That would probably have a longer life in the view of those interested in writing modules. You can also message gamers you know who DM or work on modules and ask them if they would take a look and give you some feedback.


I think this can be generalized to many situations besides writing modules, basically anytime you are posting about a project hoping to get feedback.


Another advantage to posting as a Blog is that you can add tags which gives another search path to discovery for those interested.


I started writing this post on the Newsfeed but when I realized that it needed the tags, meta and help, I copied it and posted it as a blog.


Blogs also have the advantage of that Edit button making it the preferred way to post anything longer than two paragraphs.

I have an idea for an actual play podcast called "If You Play You Win". Basically the idea is to have rotating DMs running one offs where anyone can jump in. It will be in the gamerplus chatrooms at Tenkar's Tavern. The DM will choose the time, the date, and the game system. We will promote the game on Gamer+ and at Tenkar's. The DM can also invite people to play. Are you interested in helping with this?
