Intro:   

  • The Damsels of DDO Recorded Live on Jul 22, 2015, 9 PDT. This is our 21st show.
    • Welcome, Chai
      • How long have I/ we known you?
      • True or false, you are the most hated forums poster in DDO?
      • What color is your windowless van?
    • Epic Completionist?  Going well?
    • Someone kept telling me in the chat, “stand to the side Lessah! Don’t wade into the middle of the fight!”
    • Random tells from viewers… the DDO Stream equivalent of photobombing.  🙁  *all the cries*
    • I can play with Mythery again!  All my goals on Cannith have been accomplished.  50,000 ingredients.  The experiment continues.  More on this later when I start leveling.

 

Rumors and News

        • Lessah gets around

 

  • GenCon – what’s a LARP and how does Lessah dress when LARPing

 

    • Forums
      • The Damsels aren’t the ‘typical’ DDO player or are we??
        • What does ‘steamroll’ content mean?
    • Prediction – Pausing bravery bonus won’t help grouping, except maybe for raids (Nah, raids fill fine on Normal and Hard so I don’t see it.). Forum topic about times pausing bravery bonus would make sense:
      • Soloing Running with the Devils as a palemaster
      • Joining a raid you really want to do
      • Doing a quest you can’t do solo on elite; Times when forced to solo and either can’t or don’t want to take on a dungeon on elite, yet want to run something you haven’t run
      • Escort quests
      • The necro rat quest
      • Preserve BB for next life when you reach a point you can’t maintain it with quests available
      • Running with Guild/Friends who do not run at a BB setting
    • Mythery is from outer space – more on this later
    • U27 on Lamannia again – getting closer to going live, which means the DDOCast scavenger hunt is almost over.  Send in your submissions before U27 goes live.

 

  • Before we start!  
    • Dr. Who Talk.  SOME GREAT EPISODES!!!!
        • Martha Jones:  “It’s like when you fancy someone and they don’t even know you exist.”
        • Jack Harkness:  “you too huh?”
      • The Master, First contact gets taken over by America when GB’s Prime Minister has already established a relationship… really?  REALLY?!
          • The best things about the Christmas Episode “Voyage of the Damned” otherwise known as “Kylie Minogue jumps into the eye of Mordor with Cyborg Smegal”:
            • The Doctor as a house elf
            • The Face of Beau?!
            • The WTF moment.
            • First class degree in Earthonomics

    • OITNB?  Anyone?
      • Favorite character?
      • Favorite storyline?
    • Durarara
      • What the F?! The first episode has a girl getting put in a van.  Just happens to be Chai’s favorite saying. “Get in the van.”  A guy shows up to school to say, “I’m not going to school anymore!”
      • This show is kinda dark and serious, but I’m still watching.
      • Theme is really cool.  I found a cover in English!

 

Spiders! And Lessah’s new love interest – Driders!

The Demonweb!

We decided to run around in the demonweb, just for the heck of it. I wanted to prove to the rest of them that those webs aren’t sticky. Not at all!! Sorry, but I just think that’s weird. And speaking of spiders, the freaking spiders out there jumped all over me! It didn’t seem to matter where we were of who I was standing next to, they always jumped on me! So, we’re out there hopping from web to web and Sahba starts telling us a story about these arcane orbs that are in the demonweb some place and how they are being used to suppress the power of the Thread of the Weave. I’m pretty sure she was looking for them and just didn’t want to tell us until it was too late for us to object. Then Chai starts telling us how he knows the Thread of the Weave and it’s some girl named Ana. I seem to remember meeting her in some old temple out in the King’s Forest. Anyway, he keeps talking about her and how he’s saved her repeatedly and now he has to do it again. I think I heard him say something about putting a collar around that pretty little neck of hers but I had stopped really listening by this point. I think he has a little crush on her cuz I heard him singing this strange little sad love song about her. Yeah, he’s smitten. Well, I didn’t see Ana while we were out there but somehow Sahba did manage lead us to all of the orbs. I knew it!
