    Very nice. I enjoyed the read. Reminded me of Jack Vance. So Jack Vance will be our opening topic tonight on Inspired Unreality. We will be discussing fantasy and science fiction.

    The fantasy of Jack Vance.

    Vance won the World Fantasy Award for Life Achievement in 1984.

    The Dying Earth features one of the greatest fantasy antiheroes of all time, Cugel the Clever. The Dying Earth setting also hosts other stories full of other antiheroes.

    The Lyonesse Trilogy, Suldrun's Garden, The Green Pearl, and Madouc. Madouc won the World Fantasy Award in 1990 and contains the most delightful fey adventure ever written.

    "The Dungeons & Dragons role-playing game and associated literature used a magic system inspired in part by Jack Vance's Dying Earth series, notably the fact that magic users in the game forget spells they have learned immediately upon casting them, and must re-study them in order to cast them again. The Dying Earth and The Eyes of the Overworld are featured in the "Appendix E: Inspirational Reading" section of the 1st edition of the Dungeon Masters Guide and the 5th edition of the Player's Handbook."

    "A Song of Ice and Fire by George R.R. Martin. In the series, Martin includes a minor character, "Lord Vance of Wayfarer's Rest". In further reference to Jack Vance, the character's daughters are named Liane, Rhialta, and Emphyria for Liane the Wayfarer, Rhialto the Marvellous, and Emphyrio, respectively."

    Vance won Hugo Awards for "The Dragon Masters" and "The Last Castle". Both of these novels are science fiction in spite of their fantasy sounding titles and both feature the competent hero, a staple throughout Vance's work.

    Thanks to wikipedia for some of the info above.

    Here's my own tribute.

    I read a lot of Fantasy and Science Fiction when I was young by a lot of authors from the Golden Age through New Wave. Reading as an adult with a lifetime of honing my skills appreciating literature Jack Vance holds up the best. I still read and reread Jack Vance on a regular basis.

    And the tradition lives on.

    After Tais Teng explored new Alastor worlds in Phaedra: Alastor 824, and Michael Shea followed Cugel the Clever into the demon realms of the Dying Earth with A Quest for Simbilis, we are pleased to announce that renowned genre author Matthew Hughes has penned a dashing adventure among the worlds of the Gaean Reach, which has been released as the third installment on our Paladins of Vance label.

    Please add your Jack Vance thoughts in the comments and join us tonight on Inspired Unreality first Monday Fantasy and Science Fiction discussion where our opening topic will be Jack Vance.

    The fantasy of Jack Vance.

    Vance won the World Fantasy Award for Life Achievement in 1984.

    The Dying Earth features one of the greatest fantasy antiheroes of all time, Cugel the Clever. The Dying Earth setting also hosts other stories full of other antiheroes.

    Medieval Demographics Made Easy

    Hosted here
    https://followmeanddie.com/...raphics-made-easy-2/

    This page has a free link to the pdf which is distributed freely. The booklet itself is fantastic not only as a guide to medieval demographics but also as an example of how to put together a fantasy supplement that is useful and entertaining.

    Thanks to S. John Ross and Follow Me And Die.

    I learned about the FKR (Free Kriegsspiel Revolution) earlier today, so I put together a quick article. It is intriguing and something I will put some more thought into.

    Just in time for tomorrow's 12th anniversary of my blog, I wrote an article about Garage Con.

    I always think it's a good idea to come up with a thing you want to make you do a job you would otherwise hate to do.

    I love the idea of Garage Con especially for the ventilation. I don't think a personal con like this has to be 12 hours. 8 - 10 hrs could work fine and lower the exhaustion factor.

    Episode 197 - Down the Rabbit Hole of UAPs-UFOs

    With the recent buzz over the release of some videos of various sensor date of Unidentified Aerial Phenomenon, the new term for UFO, I decided to explore "What if...." and apply it to the realm of RPGs.

    Wow, just realized that this month marks 38 years since I graduated high school....
    I started playing D&D 6 years before that, so 44 years of D&D and I still can't get enough.

    I started roll playing in the early 70s which was very different than Gary Gygax's D&D. We convened in the Arkansas State Beebe Student Union when we had the time and picked miniatures from whatever was available. The rules were typed on letter paper and were mimeograph or Xerox copies.I started roll playing in the early 70s which was very different than Gary Gygax's D&D.

    This week I took the plunge and tried my first serious effort at solo RPG play.

    Just had an interesting listen. Gamers chuckdee and Peter_R are both into solo gaming. https://gamerplus.org/groups/7

    I use a system called "Mythic" as a capstone system to do solo RP. It works quite well, the really cringe-inducing illustrations notwithstanding.

    We just took on the Black Knight in Heroes and Wizards who came out of his tomb to fight us as both a wraith and a zombie skeleton. Needless to say our party of both Heroes and Wizards dispatched both of them and then discovered that in his library were documents proving the King's specious claims to the throne!We just took on the Black Knight in Heroes and Wizards who came out of his tomb to fight us as both a wraith and a zombie skeleton.
