Gamer+ News February 18, 2022 from hairylarry's blog

Join us on Inspired Unreality tomorrow morning at 11:00 Central. Inspired Unreality open game chat is held every Saturday morning at 11:00 in the gamerplus chat rooms at Tenkar's Tavern on Discord. If you've never been to Tenkar's there's a link for you here.

This week is Bring Your Own Topic. All gaming is on topic. Have you had a few ideas rolling around in the back of your head? Feel free to join us and talk about them. Board games, card games, RPGs. They're all on topic.

And as for last week! Did you know Milyagon was near a Shire? If you can make it safely across Wilken Woods and cross the river there be Hobbits.

We used Shire friendly dice tables found in the Hearth & Hillside Home.pdf, a name your own price download.

First we rolled up elevenses from the Sweet Treats table. Caper rolled Tart rhubarb pie with clotted cream and an extra flavour that everybody either loves or hates and Ari rolled Sticky honeycomb fresh from the tallest oak this side of Woolshod Hill which Caper had recently rescued from the bees.

As a good hobbit would, Caper suggested they follow up on elevenses with Breakfast for Dinner. Caper rolled Spicy sausages with flavours from the distant empire of Man and Ari followed up with a still-twitching boiled crab that always goes for the nose. So sausages and crabs it was after Caper detwitched the crab with a single blow.

Unable to eat any more Caper suggests a walk through the woods to enjoy the sun. Before they get out of town they meet weary halfling travellers trekking into town wearing the scandalous fashions of a distant March. In fact their garb is brightly colored and entirely inappropriate for the shire. They said some fairies had played a trick on them changing their sensible clothes for this rubbish.

Ari escorted them into a second hand clothes shop where Mr. Muffin, the owner, assured them all he could arrange an exchange for more suitable attire knowing that the brightly colored clothes would sell well when caravans of men and women passed through town. No accounting for the tastes of men. Brightly colored scarves just assure that you'll be seen in the woods.

After walking a short way out of town Ari and Caper met a well-groomed pony with courtly ribbons, plodding under the weight of a pompous Shirrif and his tall feathered hat.

The Shirrif was complaining about the fairies who he said, "Tied the ribbons to my pony and gave me this stupid hat."

Caper said, "Mr. Muffin will trade that hat for a better one and he probably knows where you could trade the pony for a sturdier horse."

They talked on for a while, as one does well met in the woods, and then Ari and Caper continued their hike while the Shirrif plodded on to town. As he left, Ari cast detect magic and all the ribbons as well as the hat and the feathers glowed with fey magic.

Maybe we'll find out more on Inspired Unreality tomorrow. Or maybe you have something to talk about or a game you'd like to play. Or both? Could be.

Please forward this email to your game playing friends and share this link.
