CarlHeyl comments, “My old school minis don't feel so old school now.”

FollowMeAndDie posts “A good overview for what is the OSR. Presented in a way that should appeal to new RPGers and those who only know 5e. He limits Old School to D&D and omits all the other games from back in the day that had a similar quick style of play. Or games that started back then that may not be simple rules. AKA Nostalgia.”

ZDL posts Chinese playing cards. “This is my second, believe it or not, 100% hand-made deck of playing cards.”

Do you like to play games? My son, Carl, and I have started a social network for gamers called Gamer+.

(http://gamerplus.org)

I'm the webmaster and Gamer+ has been my hobby project for the last several months. I'm pleased with how it is working. We have some fantastic gamers posting, some of them real old school, like me. Well worth a visit. You don't have to join to browse and it is free to join if you want to participate.

Send me an email. I want to know what you're doing. I will promote your shows/events/etc on Delta Boogie and my other websites.

Thanks, Hairy Larry hairylarry@deltaboogie.com

Ok, on Inspired Unreality tonight we will be recording the Related To Geeks podcast, a podcast about a geeky family. So most of you know Carl and Hairy Larry. There's more of us. Lot's more. And we're all gamers. Vivian and I raised our kids right.

After The Geek Agenda we will discuss The Geek Topic which is “Winging It” tonight. Everyone is welcome to join the chat during The Geek Topic. Then we will stop recording and have our regular open game chat where everyone can talk about whatever they want to.

Inspired Unreality is Monday, September 2, at 9:00 PM Central in the gamerplus chatrooms at Tenkar's Tavern on Discord. If you are not a member you can go to gamerplus.org for a link.

JesseQ posted some info about Watch2Gether in a post he wrote about online role playing. So I checked it out and set up a Gamer+ Watch2Gether channel where you can go with other gamers and watch the same video at the same time even if you're not in the same country.

FollowMeAndDie posted a link to all four games from the Extra Life fundraiser at the Gygax house.

(https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLT7cQu33X53NqQsIVFyi-VJ5qSZzTRgHZ)

I also added these videos to the queue at the Gamer+ Watch2Gether. Maybe we can set up a viewing session where we can watch a game and chat about it.

Frylock finished his 3 part series on fantasy games, copyrights, and the OGL. This is a substantial piece of work and has spurred much discussion. You can read it on his blog, Frylock's Gaming & Geekery.

In case you haven't figured it out yet, gamers on Gamer+ do stuff. So if you're doing stuff post it on Gamer+. Because we want to know what you're doing.

Thanks, Hairy Larry

Gamer+ News, August 12, 2019

We have a guest tonight on Inspired Unreality, Caeora is a fantasy artist and mapmaker who has been working on Dungeonfog's Project Deios. We are going to have Ask Me Anything (about gaming) followed by our usual open game chat. Inspired Unreality starts at 9:00 PM, Central Time at Tenkar's Tavern on Discord.

Our ranks continue to grow. We now have over 70 gamers on Gamer+. And I've got to tell you, we are mostly creators including writers, artists, vloggers, and podcasters.

We have added gamer RSS feeds and homepage links for their blogs, podcasts, video channels, chat, actual play... You will see this in the footer on every page. The real gem is the “View last 60 items here” link. This updates more quickly than the FeedGrabbr scroll and it has the actual posts with pics and videos included.

And at the bottom of your profile page there is a tool to help you link to your profile page on Gamer+. Your audience wants to read your profile and they may stick around and join.

The final piece of news this week is that starting Monday, August 2, Inspired Unreality will host the Related To Geeks podcast, the podcast of a geeky family. We will discuss The Geek Topic and then go into open game chat. Everyone is welcome to participate. We are planning on making this a monthly event.

Please comment below or if you are reading this in your email here's the link.

Mini Zines

My son Carl has a podcast about DnD called The Dungeon Show and his guest last night was Hobbs from Hobbs and Friends. Turns out besides podcasts and youtubes Hobbs does a zine and it’s a print zine not a webzine but distributed over the internet as a pdf. So he can deliver them in person or at a convention or sell them as pdfs on Drive Through RPG.

Well, my gears got turning and I found this cool way to make a print zine from a single piece of paper printed on one side on wikibooks. I’ve got one completed, my story “Driven” from SFF Short Stories. I’m working on “I Dreamed That I Woke Up” and I have some other concepts circling around between my ears like a coloring book or a one off DnD quest.

I’ve got the “Driven” Mini Zine available as a pdf here.

(http://guitarshowdown.com/hll/public/7737d2)

It’s a free download and the story is CC BY. It’s a good story, moody with a special ending. Here’s the story on my website, SFF Short Stories.
