Crystal Cove

Two Toed Tobias’ lost hoard has been found! Tobias Warbuckle is a local urban legend, it is said that he pillaged and plundered the seas near and far. And he was so ruthless and miserly that his crew murdered him while sailing back to his home port in Three Barrel Cove. I’m not sure exactly who found it but it’s in Smugglers Cove and the Kobold Union have taken charge of mining the dragonshard crystals. We were offered a share in the profits if we went and helped/ protected them. Naturally we accepted the offer!

I have to say we earned our money. There were scores of skeletons, zombies, and hobgoblins in there, trying to kill the hard working kobolds. There was also a visit from Jack Jibbers, in giant wrath form. He is a very angry undead thing, isn’t he.

  • The Damsels of DDO Recorded Live on Wednesday February 2nd, 2016 at 11:00 PST. This is our 34th show.  
    • After many runs of Cabal in House Phiarlin, I have upgraded two things!  
      • Brawnpits Spirits (very cool, has green augment slot and 20% insight bonus to threat) and Big Top Hat
    • Pugging… not really.  I’m using halflings hirelings, I figure going halfway is better than not going.  
      • Question…do you use VC when you pug?
    • What happens when you are stuck home on a Friday night after your other plans fall through?  You get sucked into the DDO Cast!  


  • Rumors and News
    • Did Lessah pug?  Girl gamers – does harassment still go on??
    • 2016 Player’s Council
    • DDO Winter Games – how’s it going?
    • Forums
      • R.I.P. Heroic Raids???


  • Before we start!  
    • Doctor Who
      • Not on Netflix anymore? It’s gone from all my lists. I can keep watching on Amazon, but at a cost.  I’m not sure I have that in me.  Spoiler free!  
      • Shadowhunters!!!!
        • Parabatai
          • Like marriage but only for the underage and platonic!  
            • Official oath and a life bond, after age 19, no dice.  
        • A lesson in Vampires and Faeries!  
          • Vampires – gold standard, undead, no sunlight, can feel when sire dies, buried in the ground ala True Blood… yada yada
            • Grave site dirt text messaging?  
          • Faeries – Half Demon/ Half Angel.  (Everyone sleeps with everyone when it comes to Downworlders!) Can’t lie, that’s why they answer questions with questions.  So basically faeries are like high-priced lawyers.  They deliver what you want at a very high price and usually with an ironic stinger.  


…and if our life isn’t challenging enough…

So, first we went to the beach and played with some kobolds and some undead dudes and THEN Lessah said, “Come over to this mansion and I’ll give you a tour. No, really, it’ll be great! Get over here!” So we go into this mansion and there are many bedrooms, and other rooms, and sweeping staircases. And we are running around in a frenzy grabbing crests and shoving them into doors. All the while a loud voice is announcing that we have X amounts of minutes to kill someone… I think. Eventually we enter a room in what are obviously the “projects” (why there are projects inside of a mansion I don’t know) and Lessah tells me this is where Dr. Rushmore lives! Here is what I want to know, why does Dr. Rushmore live in the most rundown part of his own mansion???


  • All Things Mythery:   (What do you think of your new theme song?! Thanks BonnieBew for Beweing up the song and making it crazy awesome!)  


    • Mythery Says:   I have enough voices in my head.  
      • Me: “Now you know more about Dr. Rushmore’s mansion.  Where are we?
      • Myth: “A bedroom.”  
      • Sahba: “Myth, you should go repair.”  
      • Myth: “Ok.” (doesn’t move) “Almost done…”
    • Mythery Thought: Why can’t I see this invisible dog?
  • Ask Mythery:  
    • Would you ever consider going Air and Water Savant instead of Fire and Acid?  


  • Fanservice Experiment will continue this Sunday.  I am ready to accept other guildies, but right now I only dedicate two nights a month to the guild.  That might increase once I forgive Turbine for forsaking me and I can craft again.    
  • Mythery – I will do all the work all the time.  Cause I’m Mythery and that’s what I do.  
  • When is Next time?

Life’s little challenges (my mind is a strange and scary place lol)


I was trying to write this little story and I was a few sentences in when I looked at it and noticed I was rhyming. For some reason I had some Dr. Seuss rolling around in my head and it didn’t want to leave so I just gave in to it. Sorry.

When things are running smoothly and the loot gen is weird,

the robes are dull and boring and your best cape was speared.

Or your hireling won’t heal you and would rather fight instead,

which drew too much agro and now you are dead.

You need to add a little challenge to your life.

Just hop the nearest airship and head to House C.

That’s where you can just run amok and go on a spree.

A host of little doorways which lead to pocket places abound.

Skirting the edges is where they are found.

A little challenge just might calm the strife


Entering these pockets may be dangerous and scary,

you could fall on your head and roll on your belly.

Landing on a beach is a possibility,

but a walk on the wild side is a test for agility.

And hey, I’m sure the challenges got a bunch of likes.

OK, now that that’s out of my system, we did the one with the thing and the kobolds and the one with the kobolds and that other thing. We also did two or three that had dragons and snakes ladies. Oh! And we did one with kobolds and the stuff and a big ass crystal. When they were over we got stars and stuff. Not to be confused with the stuff in the challenge and as for the stars, I think someone swiped mine cuz they weren’t in my backpack. Apparently, you can trade the stuff for loot. I like loot so I guess all is right with the world.
