The Damsels Game Episode 146, Professional Noob

Hello! We are the Damsels Game! 

The Damsels are three lady gamers who like to play games and then talk about them. This time around, we talk about Dungeons and Dragons Online, 7 Days to Die, Ark Survival Evolved, Subnautica Below Zero, and Minecraft. Fun is somebody’s middle name, Maybe Mythery!

Jibber Jabber Time! 

  • Emails
    • Fierce Fred sent email just so I would have something to report!!! Thanks Fred.  
    • Four days later another email, from Brian.  He’s getting a “Bad RSS feed” when trying to get the podcast from the website (I think).  At the time of the email, it had been happening for a week.  
  • I’ve asked for more info but he wanted to know if anything had changed or did he need to just be patient?? 
  • As a test, I went to the website, to the episode just before his email, and I get this .  However, when I “click here to subscribe via rss” I get “This XML file does not appear to have any style information associated with it.  The document tree is shown below.”  Bottom line, the word press file needs to be fixed so that RSS works.

          • Lessah – “Bwahahahahahahaha!”
      • Mythery POV 10
        • Breetai Beerloaf – Myth always seems to end up alone killing mini hordes.  Nothing like relaxing and laying waste to a zombie horde.
  • What we learned/ thoughts for the week:
    • Lessah: If you are in a house made of wood. Do NOT set it on fire. 
    • Myth: All I really needed was an almost level 300 Thylacoleo of my very own to love and tear small animals to shreds with and eat them.
    • Sahba: ..

I’m sure no one under 18 plays that game.

  2. Snyder edition Justice League – what does Lessah think???
  3. Mortal Kombat
  4. Shadow and Bone

7 Days to Horde Night!

We started a new server with the gang after dumping Nitrado and picking up a new company called LogicServers. Here’s the thing, we have enjoyed Nitrado for a number of years and depending on who you are and what you are doing with your server I think they are probably an excellent choice. They are a tad more expensive than everyone else but they are helpful and have a lot of options for things. We dumped them because you have no control over game server updates for 7DTD, which wrecks our games quite often. So we stress tested LogicServer (that was fun!), they passed, and here we are. We hit day 7 pretty fast so Lessah, Cadameir, and I decided we should do horde night and get it over with hahaha. We have barely set up a place to live yet so we went and found a building to fight on top of. I’m a terrorist so I had a lot of land mines and assorted bombs which Lessah placed around the outside base of the building. We also had some exploding arrows and Cad had a rocket launcher. Our first horde night looked much like the 4th of July sans the pretty colors, plus flying body parts! It was great.
