The Tenkar's Tavern Discord Server has Added a "Nerd Nutrition" Channel - and its Hopping!

Late this morning, one of the Tenkar's Tavern Discord Server "Menches" (its what we call our moderators) messaged me and Pexx ("who does Number Two work for?!?") about the idea of adding a text channel on the server for "out of shape nerds."

Bingo! A new channel was formed. Nerd Nutrition.

Want to talk about nutrition with fellow gamers. Work out routines with fellow nerds? Looking for community support to keep you on the bike and away from the ice cream? This might be the place you've been waiting for.

I'm thrilled by the engagement its seen on its first day :)

I'm about six months into physical therapy for sciatica (both sides) and I could stand to lose a few - well, lots of few - pounds. I purchased a $200 stationary bike 2 weeks ago and just signed Rach and I up with Peloton Digital. Workouts, virtual bike rides, yoga, meditation - maybe you'll see a healthier me at the next convention.

Put "OSR Christmas Gift" in the subject.  If you are receiving a physical gift I'll need a physical shipping address I can forward on (or use myself). If the gift is digital, I will need the email you use with DriveThruRPG. Day Eleven of OSR Christmas should go up tomorrow.

(All comments at The Tavern have to be moderated - approved by an admin - meaning me. The Tavern has become the target of spambots and others and this is the best, if most tedious, way to handle such. I approve comments as fast as I can. I appreciate your patience - Erik)

edit - I'm feeling good this week, which means I'm going through 2 weeks of catch up - I ask for your patience and understanding - Erik
