Damsels of DDO Episode 29, Epic High Road

The Damsels of DDO are a group of girl gamers who talk about things that are important to them in the world of Dungeons and Dragons Online.  The Damsels went back for an Epic Elite run of the High Road and good times were had by all!  There were casters, shadows, and even a medusa!  Sahba Jade doesn’t like it when we fight right next to her while she’s petrified for some reason.  Find out what happens when a rogue can’t jump!  Thanks so much for listening!

More Highroad

Rest Stop

We were roaming around in a broken down old building when we found out it was a castle…or used to be. There was a lot of people around and most of them seemed oblivious to everything going on around them. We spent most of our time chasing a mage around the place and every time we would catch up he would stick a stave into the ground and poof out. Also, this guy was poofing around with a big chest. We destroyed his staves, killed him and looted his chest. I don’t know why he was toting that thing around, there wasn’t anything very interesting in it. We grabbed the piece of Nether scroll we found and took off. Oh, and everywhere we went I seemed to be getting eaten by rats!

Stay at the Inn

I guess Oriphuan was handing out bits of Nether scroll to everyone because he gave a piece to the bartender at the Old Man’s Face Inn. Which, by the way, has a picture of a draught beer on it and not the face of an old man. Go figure. We went to the inn where we found the innkeeper, surprise! I think he gave us a key and then told us not to look at anything. We went out to the barn and… Did we look? Lessah? Really, is he stupid or what? Finally we went to the bar, which has a big shiny chest behind it. Above the chest was a cork board. Pretty sure that’s where the barkeeper put the scrap of scroll. I didn’t get anything cool out of that chest either.

Lost in the Swamp

Last of all we went to a swamp and in the swamp we met Kyle or we looked for Kyle and then met Kyle’s ghost. A person can do a lot of swimming in there for absolutely no reason or at least no profit. I kind of liked the swamp better than you would think. The thing I liked the least was the amount of nasty wisps in there. Waaaay in the back we found a medusa and chopped her head off. Have you ever noticed that all medusas are female? How do they reproduce? Maybe they are like paramecium? Then we had to make Sahba jump up on some posts and undo traps so we could loot another chest. She was being ornery though because she fell off and I had to step in the traps anyway. Bad rogue! On the way out there was another chest and someone said there was some good loot to get out of here. I just want to know… where? Where? Where?

    Shield of the Morning (although I like the whole purple aura going on in the picture with the Purple Dragon Knight shield too)

  2. ReplyBauldrdash

    These chicks are so stoned. :)

  3. ReplyBleylor

    Sorry my vote is none of the above - look at the deaths door shield (shield of legend) - that is the one to glamour :-)
