Tonight! Inspired Unreality! Open game chat at 9:00 Central in the gamerplus chatrooms at Tenkar's Tavern on Discord. Our opening topic will be magic systems. ZDL mentioned the Native American influences in Gunnerkrigg and it got me to thinking about how a magic system based on Native American folklore would work. Spirituality, talking to animals, sweat lodges, drugs, transmutation. Magic systems are a fascinating part of RPGs and fantasy literature. Join us tonight for an interesting discussion.

As always bring your own topic. All gaming is on topic. If you have never been to Tenkar's Tavern we have an invite for you here.

From The Archive March 21, 2021 – Delta Legends – “These Blues”

Thanks Marty, this week on From The Archives we’re featuring some blues guitar from Delta Legends.

On June 10, 2018, I took a drive down to John Shepherd’s studio to record with Delta Legends. John Shepherd and Jeremy Burnett are both from Wynne and I live outside of Brookland. We recorded several songs and three of them are featured on our CD, “Two Woman Blues”. At the session John played guitar, Jeremy was on harp, and I’m on the bass. We all sing.

John is a virtuoso electric blues guitarist who plays especially well on slow blues standards like “Red House” and “Last Night”. One of the songs we recorded that day is a John Shepherd original called “These Blues”. John wrote it, John sings it, and John’s on guitar. Here’s Delta Legends now playing “These Blues”.

it's impossible for me to listen to Mingus' "Ah Um" album without having my inner voice slide into the tone of a 1950s detective mystery narrator.

As I mentioned a few days ago, "If On A Winter's Night, Four Travelers" is a stunningly beautiful, completely free indie game (but see the content warnings in the game's description). Here's a spoiler-free review -- I used Peek to capture a small scene from the game, just to showcase the attention to detail:

And if you haven't checked it out yet, here's where you can get the game:

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.

"Don't do anything strenuous," she repeated mockingly, "I should have eaten him."

The princess nodded understandingly.

"It's just eggs! Why, my ancestors torched whole villages then flew off with entire castles while chock full of eggs all the time!"

"Planning on rampaging?"

"No... but I could if I wanted, no matter my condition."

"Of course."

"It's just right now I'd prefer a foot and wing massage."

"Of course," the princess obliged.

The BBC has made available more than 100 empty sets from well-known TV shows such as Strictly, Dr Who, Eastenders and 'Allo 'Allo! to use with apps that create virtual backgrounds.
I checked with the BBC and they are for personal use only.

why can’t I follow someone multiple times at once.
Love your field of work and interests / disinterests. I feel like we should work together on something eventually? 😊💚



It’s time once again to post superb owls.
A perfectly camouflaged owl.

They called her Greatpine for she towered, tall and proud; she drank from lakes, used mountains as scratching-posts; her purrs echoed through the valley like thunder.

How did a cat become so large, many wondered.
What did she eat, others would nervously speculate.
Some speculated she guarded a treasure - clearly she was some kind of magical sentinel.

But really, she was just a very spoiled and well fed Familiar to a hermit-witch.
