The Damsels Game, Episode 157, Becoming Mando

Hello! We are the Damsels Game!

The Damsels are three lady gamers who like to play games and then talk about them. We’ve been busy gamers and we are ready to talk about it. Thanks so much for listening!

This week, the Damsels Game is sponsored, and here to tell us about it, is Mythery! 

This week’s featured shop is : Tony’s Terrific Tools! Tony agreed to pay extra for his ad if Lessah would sing this little jingle he wrote for the shop. Lessah said she would be more than happy to do this for Tony even if he didn’t pay extra. I said that Tony still has to pay and I want to know exactly what IS more than happy?

Sung to the tune of Sponge Bob Square Pants Theme Song

      • My name is Delera, you recently freed me from my prison where I was being held by Giddeon. Thank you SO MUCH! You are truly a hero of Stormreach.

  • Let’s talk videos and comments to videos! 
    • DDO 
      • A Quest a Day – Ep 81 came out yesterday
        • In the past four weeks, Sahba finished up Irestone Inlet, House D Chain (BoB, The Black Loch, Storm the Beaches, The Tide Turns), The Night Revels (Delera’s Graveyard, Under New Ravagement, The Kobolds’ New Ringleader), Stormcleave Outpost with special guest Mythery (this ep was mentioned in the DDO Chronicle issue 448), and the first three quests in Assault on Splinterskull in Tangleroot Gorge.
        • Plus, two extra videos showing the lesser TR done at 10.  Most comments were from these.
      • Selected Comments
        • Delera’s Tomb – The Missing Party
          • Breetai Beerloaf explained in the comments how to do the optionals, including the underwater gate/swimming part, with hirelings who can cast summon monster.  Sahbajade didn’t attempt that so thanks for the info Breetai.  I’ll give it a go on Sahba when she gets there.
        • Delera’s Tomb – Thrall of the Necromancer
          • I had asked if I should continue on to 30, or try a short sword or kukri?? (I think that’s what I said) build TRing at 20.  
            • John Blackstar thinks both builds ‘sound interesting but I am curious to see if you can make it to 30 with this one.”
            • Drew Rankin agrees to go to 30, and also comments that the only viable build for short swords since Vistani Knife Fighter is a swashbuckler bard or in offhand as a thrower.  Hmmm, does that sound like a challenge??? Oh, he said ‘viable,’ didn’t he <G>?
        • Tangleroot Pt 1 – First Strike
          • John Blackstar mentions that if you go through the portcullis, the rooms on the one side have spiders, scorpions on the other.  If you go the scorpions in the first quest, through the door in their area at the bottom is a tunnel and human prisoner who talk to you and then dies.  On the next quest, you fight his zombie.  On the next, his skeleton.  There is a chest in every quest, even the first.  Random loot. 
        • Stormcleave Outpost – Myth and I were commenting on the permanent scarecrow hireling’s ‘bird feet’
          • Drew Rankin wrote that Baba Lysaga’s hut has bird feet, like Baba Yaga.
            • My reply “Ha! I think I’ve been too busy fighting Baba Yaga to notice her feet.”
        • O hell yeah asked how many lives Sahbajade has:
          • Three racial past lives, all gnome.  I thought the extra halfling AP would come in handy.
        • TR attempt at level 10
          • Danny Hickling – Sorry to see this for you, I am holding off on any reincarnations at the moment. One of the guys in our group did a TR and has lost everything. He had a +8 Supreme tome of ability and a bunch of skill tomes. They are all gone and he hasn’t had any response from DDO support in well over a week.
          • Thazara of Orien – I had the same thing happen on my lvl 30. I leveled up to 14 before I realised it wasn’t normal behaviour. Relogging mid leveling up fixed it, but I had already lost a bunch of points and couldn’t take the feat I wanted at 15. I’ve sent in a ticket asking for a new heart but I haven’t heard back yet
          • Daniel Horne – that moment when you realise everything is gone. Unfortunately I didn’t realise until I’d knocked out a couple of levels, nothing came back at relog, and now I’m stuck in customer service purgatory. Maybe a LR will fix it? While I haven’t been as blessed with them from rolls there’s a couple taking up space in the bank. But I’d hate for it to fail and be another reason that it can’t be fixed. There’s plenty of advice on the forums about the ‘correct’ way to reincarnate, things like shutting down the client instead of just relogging. I’m not super convinced but if there is some sort of arcane timing to it that needs to be invoked that should be on the player.
          • My replies: 
            • I’m just lucky I have plenty of hearts that I ‘won’ as rewards from daily dice rolls (either gold or silver, when I was VIP and had gold rolls every day).  Even after using a bunch, and I mean a bunch, of hearts for heroic, epic, and iconic TRs, plus some for changing up my characters, I still have 7 Lesser, 3 +5s, 4 +20s, 3 Heroics, and 8 Iconic – all from daily dice rolls.
            • I almost always shut down the game entirely before reincarnating. I would say ‘always’ but James Bond said Never and that kicked him in the bum, didn’t it :).
      • Lessah and Mythery are doing the November MC Hardcore Challenge. Will we make it? Four episodes left in this month, Mondays/ Fridays. I confess…
      • I have 7 chapters of Far Cry 6 with Friendly Necro and I am loving it! He is such a Himbo when we play and I am here for it. 
    • The Force is strong with Damsels Lessah on TikTok
  • What we learned/ thoughts for the week:
    • Lessah: Mythery is very grumpy when she gives up sugar. 
    • Myth:   I have too much time on my hands. 🙂
    • Sahba

Question of the show: ..

Conan and Deep Rock Galactic

  • Before we start!  
    •   Interviewing Mando. 
      • Minecraft?
      • What’s it like playing with….
      • Illagers? 
      • How many other games? 
      • Broken arm??????  
    • I need a moment with Mythery! 
      • It’s time for 4… (thanks TikTok) 

Grounded

As we pointed out last time, Grounded had an update that required us to begin again. It seems that happens sometimes, especially with new games when they have a big update it seems. Sometimes the new things don’t spawn in the old game and sometimes things that were there disappear. The latter being the problem here. So we got to work and quickly tried to get back to the point we were when things went pear shaped. That only took us about 3 play sessions (not too bad) since we know a little more than we did when we started last time. During our twitch session we collected a bunch of supplies, cleared some ground and started our house, and collected a lot of what we needed from the pond for some underwater exploration. Since we have played some since then we have nearly completed the house, crafted the rest of our underwater gear, and now have gas masks so we can go into the HAZE! We still need to craft some more level 2 tools, gather some molars, and get some new skills! Also we will be able to chop down things we couldn’t with level 1 axes. Things are about to get real interesting!

  • Our two weeks in gaming copycat
  • Minecraft – The World’s Longest tunnel. 
    • Minecraft with my nephew – would it surprise you to know our playstyles are different?
    • Minecraft, the card game – with my nephew, sister, and brother-in-law.
  • Satisfactory
  • Far Cry 6
    • Having a great time, except for when I don’t get a little dog. Go watch my videos! Or at least my TikTok! 
  • Grounded
    • With Lessah, Myth, and Sahbajade
    • Grounded with Tae and Lessah
  • DDO
    • Lots of DDO “A Quest A Day”  so I have episodes in the bank since I’m heading out of town.
    • Plus, Sahba (my main character, since she has the most PL??), is now 5, running E-R4, depending on quest and mood.  I don’t understand why my Ghostbane weapons aren’t working on Reapers!!!!  She has two – one dagger has a ruby of ghostbane slotted.  The other is the Spectral Dagger level 4.  
  • Borderlands 
  • Ark Survival Evolved time….
