The Damsels Game, Episode 151, Grounded

Hello! We are the Damsels Game!

The Damsels are three lady gamers who like to play games and then talk about them. What do you tell your friends when a game you don’t really like is on sale and you don’t want to be rude? Sometimes honesty is the best policy, even at 75% off. And then sometimes, a free weekend of something might surprise you! Thanks so much for listening!

This week, the Damsels Game is sponsored by Last-Minute Horde Night incorporated. No Spikes? No bullets? No time? No Problem! Just climb to the top of your favorite building and hope it doesn’t fall down before sunrise! Exit strategy and personal safety not included. Our motto is: “80% of the time, it works, all the time.”

      • Episode 6 
        • Let ́s Play con Beetho That was a traveling horde, they are a thing now, from time to time one will pass nearby and can be attracted by your presence. In a modded game I was on a mission in one of the big buildings and suddenly I hear zombies, 2 small hordes hear me and they were trying to get to me from quite a bit, later they become a problem because some hordes have screamers and if they can get yo they will scream again and again summoning more and more zombies. It was challenging and horribly fun
      • In the most recent episode, “Thank you for your Service”, Mythery helps me look at real estate in a new town. Seeing as how I finally found a trader that I like, I can move. 
        • Here is how my VV Season 2 series works: I put out an episode every 5th day. 1, 5, 10 etc, all the way to the 30th of the month. It rolls right back over to eh 1st, so on those days, you get an extra episode within my 5-day timeline. 
      • Vanilla ain’t easy. It has taken me a while to claw my way into the gaming sweet spot. 
  • What we learned/ thoughts for the week:
    • Lessah: If you are going to hide in a roof for a horde, make sure you knock all the rungs off the ladder leading to where you are. 
    • Myth: Just be ready. If you’re ready then you don’t have to waste time getting ready.
    • Sahba: Thoughts for the week – The Olympics

Rumors, News, and Lies 

  • 7DTD Alpha 19.6 stable is out. 
  • ARK Lost Island (not yet available but will be a free, official DLC for ARK: Survival Evolved) – A second creature (voted by fans) to be added to ARK Lost Island will be the Dinopithecus:
  • According to the wiki, this guy will be tameable and rideable, not sure about breedable
  • Creativerse – Are you a morning person or a night person? contest
  • DDO – 
    • Summer Sails – It’s the last week of the Sails sales and guess what’s on sale now, that I will need in a few weeks but can’t buy now because I’m still VIP?? Monster manuals – 30% off.  Some other things, but for those listening (through 1 Aug 21) that don’t already have them, head to the store now and get some +8 Tomes of Supreme Ability.  They are 75% off.  
    • The Sinister Secret of Saltmarsh is scheduled to be released 4 Aug 21.
      • Three editions, as usual – Standard, Collector’s, Ultimate Fan
      • VIPs also get 10% off the cost

  • Medieval Dynasty sets a release date – 23 Sep 21 – and a price – USD 34.99 starting 15 Aug 21.
  • .
  • Question of the show – So, GenCon, would you go this year??
  • Before we start!  
    • Republic of Sara
    • Anne with an E 
      • Aren’t sassy/ scrappy red-headed orphans fun? 

Satisfactory

We started a new map with Lessah hosting. I really like this game a lot so I pretty much always have fun playing it. Just about the time we were finally setting up our initial iron/copper/limestone  lines someone (Demon some numbers 117?) let us know that while we were standing at the workbench we did NOT have to constantly have to hold the left mouse button. LIFE CHANGING INFORMATION!!! We can’t thank him enough.

So, we are just getting our 1st lines set up and Sahba said she found coal. That puts us ahead or at least we won’t be behind. Coal is the most important thing in the 2nd part of the game. Maybe even the 3rd, although I wouldn’t know since I haven’t gotten that far yet. Lessah found a puppy, now Sahba and I need to find puppies. Puppies are helpful since they bring you gifts like power slugs. We are nicely set up for a great start now. Maybe I’ll finally see what comes after coal generators.

Lessah: Satisfactory was more fun than I first thought. I like exploration. I can see the appeal of the building mechanic. It’s very clean. You get your materials back when you dismantle something. It’s very satisfying…pun. I wouldn’t not recommend this game. I will play it if I am coerced by my friends to do so. Kinda like Valheim, except I like it more. This game, honestly, is mythery’s jam. (That reminds me, for husband swap, you need to play Borderlands 3 with him. He’s bananas at that game.) Nooooo he’s too experienced at that :P~~~

We are starting a Minecraft project next week with the DDO Players and today Lessah taught Draculetta how to play!! I was so surprised when I found out that he was a Minecraft virgin.

Tonight we will be playing Grounded. This game has been free to play all weekend (still good through Sunday). All I know is, you play one of 4 teeny tiny children lost in the backyard and have to brave the dangers of ferocious insects, hunger, and thirst. We played for a short time last night to get our characters and things set up and from what I can tell, it’s going to be really fun!

  • Our two weeks in gaming copycat
  • 7Days to Die 
    • POV Series
      • Sahba is BACK! YAY! 
        • Are you bored with 7 Days to Die?
    • I played 7DTD with Friendly Necromancer and it was a laugh a minute. 
      • I have some video footage of that on my YouTube channel. I think I have him addicted to 7 Days. 
    • Vanilla Series is almost done wrapping up. After episode 30 is filmed, I will take a break until alpha 20 drops. Then season 3 will take things…to the desert or the winter. Maybe both. 
  • Ark Survival Evolved, Ragnarok 
    • Mythery and I went looking for a giga. She finally fixed my plumbing. (The nerve!) Ark is just such a demanding game, if I am playing something else, I can’t really commit. So it’s like…Ark or nothing or other games and no Ark. 
  • GW2
    • Staying in the desert for a while!
    • Please can we play this? I have gone in a few times just to clear out low level maps. 
  • Satisfactory
    • Demon117 in twitch changed my life. (He told me how to craft without constantly clicking!) 
  • Grounded
    • Confession time! 
    • This game has a very good crafting system, easy to learn controls, and an engaging/ challenging progression. (Don’t go to the Acorns alone.) 

Housekeeping!

The Damsels Game, Episode 150, Summer Sale

Jibber Jabber Time! 

  • Emails
    • Are we influencers?  NO
  • Let’s talk videos and comments to videos! 
    • Our 7DTD POV Series
    • 7DTD Very Vanilla Second Scoop!
      • Episodes 1-16 are up and there will be a quiz later so go watch! I need a Sahba Jade to come to my Vanilla Game now since I have a place that is not embarrassing to live in. (The previous versions were not good enough.) 
        • Here is how my VV Season 2 series works: I put out an episode every 5th day. 1, 5, 10 etc, all the way to the 30th of the month. It rolls right back over to eh 1st, so on those days, you get an extra episode within my 5-day timeline. 
      • It’s like I haven’t learned anything. Still falling, screaming, running, having low level loot and acting like it’s cool. The difference is, I have a mini bike now! 
      • I will say that when you get something nice on Vanilla, you really feel like you earned it. 
  • What we learned/ thoughts for the week:
    • Lessah: The Cure for Zombie Fever is a new PC. 
      • Myth: I learned how much happiness a walk-in closet can cause.
      • Sahba: We’ve played games how long and we are still overconfident (“we are overprepared, it’s only horde night 14” followed by “we weren’t ready” as horde night 14 progressed), which leads to very exciting horde nights.  To be fair, it Looked like you were ready.  Those defences looked really good :).  The birds.  Alfred Hitchcock would be happy.
        • I will build two more sets of stairs so the zombies get to choose which line to get in and who gets to kill them. Spoiler alert…everyone chooses Mythery.

            • This game is like Minecraft with cuter NPCs
              • Prettier than MC. 
            • It’s kinda cool. I couldn’t figure out what to do to get started, so I went into Fred’s game and he helped a little bit and I got the hang of things. 
            • It is fun but it makes me want to play Minecraft badly. 
          • Stronghold 2 
            • Being a lord SUCKS. Those stupid peasants just want everything. They poop all over the place and whine when you don’t overfeed them or tax them. 
            • What’s the point of being in power if you have to actually do stuff? 
    • Before we start!  
      • Sweet Tooth
        • We HAVE TO TALK ABOUT THIS.
          • This is The Island of Dr Moreau meets Rudolph’s Shiny New Year (60’s Stop motion stuff), with a dash of Oh Brother Where Art Thou and… it’s actually pretty good. 
          • Get you a man like…get you a man who will go on one date and then raise your hybrid lab baby. 
          • I feel so sorry for all the kids…some of them can’t even talk. You can’t tell me that there isn’t a government facility out there studying these kids. 
      • No Season 2 for Lovecraft Country?!?!?!!!
      • Loki on Disney Plus. Go watch. SO GOOD. 
        • What happened in the theatre during Avengers End Game… 

    Guild Wars 2

    Back in the desert again! Woo hoo!!

    The thing I noticed is that Sahba is a true gamer. What took me and Mythery multiple tries and lots of death took her one go.

      • GW2
        • Staying in the desert for a while!
        • We did the dragon Bash!!!!
      • Satisfactory
        • The landscape is amazing. We have a great base and I just ran coal down the side of a mountain to the base. Not so easy but doable!
        • I played this…you guys are definitely slaves and maybe robots. (Ala Von-Neumann Probe sp?) I liked it better than Valheim and Scrap Mechanic. 
      • Valheim
        • I played this under protest with Taeranos because he played a game with me. Gaming Quid Pro Quo…

        3. Building. (Does it allow for creativity? Can you terraform?) 
        4. Survivability. (How challenging is it to stay alive? Factor in food/weather and how enjoyable it is to master these things.)

        • Ark Survival Evolved, Ragnarok 
          • Babies first cave exploration 
            • Currently breeding canon fodder for the adventure. 
              • We also tamed a T-Rex
            • We have lots to do! 
              • Bullets, cats, making saddles for all the cats. 
            • CHICKENS! (More little birds called Micro Raptors) 
              • So much harder to catch than pretty much everything else we have tamed. I find them when they knock me off my bird and give me a concussion. 
        • Ark is a job but right now I love my job. 
        • GW2
          • WE KILLED A DRAGON! Or three. 
            • The very satisfying conclusion to our personal stories! It was pretty epic. Now onto the desert for pie! 
        • Satisfactory
        • Scrap Mechanic with Tae
        • Subnautica BZ
          • I pushed the story forward accidentally and found lots of new plants. I really like the mean NPC, Marguerite, she hates Altera but I also know that she doesn’t trust anyone and pretty much screwed over her party in the first game. 
        • MASS EFFECT LEGENDARY! 
          • So worth the 60 bucks, you get all three games with updated graphics and combat system. Driving and shooting from the Mako is no longer as tedious as it used to be. (It’s really fun actually.) 
            • I keep making all the same mistakes over again more than ten years later. Wrex (the Krogan) is now my favorite character though. He’s so snarky.

          • Myth: Ouch
          • Sahba: I Really like to start new maps.  It’s a problem.

        • Question of the show – 
        • Before we start!  

        Disappointing Guild Wars 2

        We thought we were going to finish Sahba’s personal story but apparently there is a known bug that the devs think is great and they love it so much it has been there for years and years and they aren’t going to fix it so we can’t. We had fun anyway. Tonight we are going to finish up with mine and Lessah’s after a short trip to the land of 7dtd and our personal POV’s. 

        • Our two weeks in gaming copycat
        • 7Days to Die 
          •  Beyonder’s badlands is fun. We have a lovely home.

        • Ark Survival Evolved, Ragnarok 
          • The Adventures of Fred
            • The Fred Army grows strong! 
        • Ark is a job. 
        • GW2
          • I played Maguma Wastes with Sahba Jade! 
        • Scrap Mechanic
        • Subnautica BZ
          • The Base of my dreams
        • Baldur’s Gate 3
          • Graphics and story are pretty awesome. The party members you pick up are interesting. 
          • My thoughts so far… this game is kinda exhausting because combat takes a million years. If it were more like Dragon Age, it would be waaaaay better. It’s not intuitive and I wasted several combat turns by misclicking stuff. There is a learning curve there for sure. If I had played a Demo of this game, I would NOT have purchased it. It’s like tabletop D&D with better graphics, only, you can’t interact with party members while you play. (the way you could with Neverwinter Nights) So combat (while you wait for other people to figure out what they are doing and take ten years to make one decision) is arduous. 
          • When you play Co-Op, you have to wait for other people to stop screwing around and come on. If you move forward too far, you will get accused of “Running ahead” when all I wanted to do was walk forward… Instead, the party behind you is sweeping every nook and cranny clean of junk stuff you can’t even use and you have nothing to do while you just stand there and wait. 
            • My advice: Play with someone who has the same patience level or curiosity level as you.

        • 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.
        • Let’s talk videos and comments to videos! 
          • MHC Series
          • Our 7DTD POV Series
            • Sahba POV 10
              • Breetai Beerloaf – Sahba showing off her marksman skills.  Nice shooting!
            • Lessah POV 10
              • Breetai Beerloaf – This week’s episode “Damsels of the open road” or “Lessah attacks…her own team”
                • 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: ..

        Rumors, News, and Lies

            • Nearly half of all older Americans play games on a phone, computer, or console
            • New to gaming? You likely have a smartphone or tablet.  Start here – Words with Friends, Candy Crush Saga, 2048.

            • Mentions the Supreme Court Case “Brown v Entertainment Merchants Association” about a 2005 CA law that made it illegal to sell violent video games to anyone under 18.  Then Gov Arnold Schwarzenegger argued violent games were the same as sexual materials when it comes to government regulations.  The SC rejected the argument.  Interesting, since Arnold is the face of MMO Mobile Strike. I’m sure no one under 18 plays that game.  
          • Maximum PC (Apr 2021)
            • Is PC still worth it? (We’ve talked about this but here’s someone else talking about it) “Console gaming is simple and streamlined while PC users have a wealth of opportunities.”

        • Before we start!  
        1. Still watching The Expanse with hubs. We are in season 3. I cannot stress how good this is! John Snow in space is way more appealing than I thought it would be! 
        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.

        Easter event! We kidnapped bunnies!!!! Dodo bunnies that is, we put them in our nursery and got enough easter eggs to make everything we wanted. Lessah has been hatching (and getting eggs ready to hatch) like crazy. I am doing a terrible job at making otters but I don’t think it matters anyway. All we really needed was our old stand by muscle after all, for our pearl diving needs. We have the most “naturally” colorful dinos ever! And are still finding and adopting!

          Let ́s Play con Beetho6 days ago

          • In a server i play this really small hordes happen from time to time. The admins just make a server restart and they apear properly after.
          • WaltsWorker6 days ago
          • Bandit says: “A few things… Just to the south is a bunker!  Better loot that sucker!  Another is the poles you use to hold up the platforms for you to get from the roof to the ‘base'(just above the doors) are too close. IE: There is only one open spot between them.  The reason this is bad is that if there is a way (ladder at the back of the building) that the zombies can path to you – they’ll take that way to get up to the roof to you. And that becomes a ‘marked path’ for them to use.  They will also try to bash those poles since that’s a support for that path which is a way for you to escape.  You’re level 20 your game stage is at least 20 [gameStage = ( playerLevel + daysSurvived ) * difficultyBonus] when in a party – all game stages are added… So in your two previous Horde Nights you had at least one other player.  So now the game stage for this horde night is cut in half – or approximately; all dependent upon Myth & Tae’s Game Stages.  One other thing is “Spawning Range” – which on Horde night is about +40 or so.  So – when you started horde night at the far end of the building – that’s the reference point to where the initial zombies would spawn.  With that – they’ll virtually spawn anywhere except near your bedroll at about 40 blocks out or a bit more; and that’s wave 1.  There’s that building to the north and the broken building to the north east (and maybe other buildings) – I figure that’s where some spawned and got stuck.  Cause during horde night once they’ve spawned they’ll stay live (beating down walls, etc.) until killed or until you move far enough away for them to despawn.  The biggest factor is that in essence your game stage (total) for the horde night has been halved.  Another big factor is “Blood Moon Enemy count.  I think default is 8.  That means 8 zombies per player during horde night.  Actual numbers is more complicated.”
          • What we learned:
            • Lessah: Who can hold 25 meats. 
            • Myth: I don’t know.
            • Sahba: I’m a bum and I like it :).

          Rumors, News, and Lies 

          • Question of the show – Not including Far Cry 5, what was the last game you completed??
          • Before we start!  
          1. Still watching The Expanse with hubs. We are in season 3… but first:

          • Valheim
            • I gave it another chance and this time I found everything I needed to make an axe and build things. I see how lots of people like this game. It’s not easy. It’s just not for me. It’s early access and still a bit rough around the edges. I normally don’t mind that sort of thing but the graphics are not what I gravitate towards.

                • Episode 3 was all about making mistakes:
                  • Mythery wanted to raid a trader POI instead of digging for treasure. 
                  • Lessah didn’t want to do anything but hunt treasure. 
                  • Sahba just wants to shoot zombies and have a nice time doing it.

          • Before we start!  
          1. It’s time to talk about emergency preparedness (Texas is a summer place with summer emergencies like floods and hurricanes… things people along the Gulf Coast are used to dealing with. When I say we weren’t ready for this winter storm, I mean WE HAD NO IDEA.) 
            1. If you think you are ready…you are not. Here’s my Cold Snap report card
              1. If your gas tank is half full, it’s empty, fill it up. A+
              2. If you bought batteries for last year’s emergency, your batteries might be leaking acid. When was the last time you looked at them? C-
              3. Did you know that when the power supply gets cut off to the cell towers, you also lose internet on your phone? Fun, right? C (had radio from the car)
              4. Did you know that when propane tanks get really cold, the seals on them don’t behave well…our propane tanks for our TEN YEAR OLD camp stove were all empty. You don’t know low morale until you know you aren’t getting a hot meal during a winter storm when it’s 35 degrees in your house. F– 
              5. MVP of our cold snap was the gas fireplace. We were able to heat up leftover chilli and then make water for tea/ oatmeal. A
              6. Before a storm, do yourself a favor and fill up a 5 gallon bucket with water and have a big cup next to it to flush your toilets when you lose water. D-
          2. This whole thing was like…apocalypse darts. 
            1. Day 0: You have power and water. 
            2. Day 1: You have no power, but you have water. (Oh and it’s 14 degrees outside.) 
            3. Day 2: You have no power and no water. Also, the power company has asked all residents to limit their power even less. (Less than what????) What’s that? You want to go to a hotel? Well….. They don’t have power either, and the ones that do are all full of families trying to get warm. It’s not like you can drive away, there is no escape. The entire state is going through the same thing. 
            4. Day 3: You have power for 2 hours every 10 hours. But we aren’t going to tell you when that is. Oh, and no water. 
            5. Day 4: You have some power and your water is back at a very low flow, so if you still have pipes that didn’t burst, you can use it but you need to boil the water because it’s contaminated. Oh, and if you still don’t have power to do that, you need to use bottled water. What’s that? You used the majority of it over the last three days? Well, bad news, the stores are all empty! So, you can’t buy any water, but if you listen to the radio you might find a FEMA line somewhere in the city that will give you a pack of water but you are going to be waiting in line for it a long time. If you need more gas because you warmed up in your car over the last three days, you can’t get that either! The gas stations are empty as well. 
            6. Day 5: You have power, it’s pretty much on all the time! YAY! You have water… more or less. Just don’t drink it. Stores are still empty. Aaaaaannnndddd. Here comes another hard freeze! 
          3. My Coworker who listened to our last show says I am banned from rapping. 
            1. Blah blah blah everyones a critic. 🙂

          7DTD POV episodes 5 and 6

          We did episodes 5 and 6 on our last “official” stream. This is so much fun! Anyone remember what we did? Hee hee We are moving right along and even though episode 3 was just released Friday we have already recorded episode 8!! Well, most of us. Next time, horde night!!

          • Our two weeks in gaming
          • 7Days to Die 
            • Mythery came to visit me in the My Very Vanilla Series and a bear decided to loot the same house we were looting…only the loot was us. 
            • In our POV series, I love the idea of leaving for a new town after horde. We can always shuttle back and forth to drop off whatever we need. It’s really all about the adventure. 
            • Me too!
          • Ark Survival Evolved, Ragnarok 
            • The Bird Army is coming along! 
              • 5 Dimorphs, 2 argys, 2 really aggressive dodos, and one Watch-Raptor. 
            • We want Moths!
            • Mythery wants something she can’t have. 
              • Phoenix. 
            • Who me?
              • Hmm otter, moth, pink or white female argy, ….phoenix?
          • GW2 –
            • We are getting so close to level 80!!
              • YAY! I will get even more excited when we hit 70, we can go to the Fort. We will end up  working with the Kitty Kat. 
          • Valheim
            • I gave it another chance and this time I found everything I needed to make an axe and build things. I see how lots of people like this game. It’s not easy. It’s just not for me. It’s early access and still a bit rough around the edges. I normally don’t mind that sort of thing but the graphics are not what I gravitate towards. 
            • I know why you didn’t like trying to pick things up. You have to have the cursor right on the thing you are trying to pick up and then sometimes it will jump and you will have to click on it a second time to get it into your inventory. I was told that it is a known bug.
            • Having to click the mouse every time you swing your arm to do something, like chop a tree, seems tedious. This same motion made fighting seem stilted.
            • The graphics are…. bad. They are not what I would call cartoony, or pixelated, or pretty. They are just bad. It’s like they didn’t have the expertise they needed to make them good so instead of hiring someone that could do elegant or going a different way (cartoon/pixel) they sort of tried to make things look sorta kinda like what they should look like and then blurred everything so maybe we wouldn’t notice. The female character is the male character with a couple of lines implying breasts. Whatever.
            • I found the bird tutor to be only moderately useful but he wasn’t annoying. 
            • With that said, I did not hate the game. I realize it’s an early release. I just think it can do better. I played long enough to have killed the first boss so I did get to do some crafting but not a lot. What I did do was nice. Recipes were easy to find and follow. Pieces snapped together if I wanted them to do so or I could place them pretty much where I wanted. Rotating them was super easy too. Also, I could raise or lower the ground by using a hoe to help with placing my foundations. 
            • I had fun playing but I think it was mostly because of the person I was playing with and less about the game. Like I said, I didn’t hate it and I will play with my friend again. It just seems to me to play and look more like a game that was written maybe a decade or more ago. I haven’t read anything about this game so maybe that’s what they are going for. If so then they nailed it!
          • Scrap Mechanic
            • I’m pretty sure this game was designed by a bunch of engineers who aren’t actually gamers. I know, now I just sound like I’m bitching about everything. I’m not. Really! I like this game a lot! I’ve played it 123 hours so I must like it a little. I got it because a lot of the time I feel like I want more from the crafting part of these games I am playing. I put it in my wish list and left it there for a very long time. I didn’t buy it until survival mode came out because I don’t want to just craft but when I’m crafting I want options! And this looked like it was going to give me lots of options. Plus it was going to let me tinker with more than just slapping together buildings and the like. Wheeeeeeeeeee! But now I’m not satisfied with the other part of the game. I don’t think it is laid out right. Our 1st hour in the game we wound in in an area we should have never seen, much less been allowed in. Scared Lessah so bad she won’t come back and play with us. The weapons are meh, no point system of any kind, no armor, and so far I can’t figure out how to make a light that actually gives off some light at night!! But for some reason I really like this game. I love the cows, I mean wocs and feeding them corn. Building the stuff is awesome and I don’t think we have scratched the surface of that. The surroundings are pretty, resource gathering is fun, the graphics are nice and I really like the sounds that go with things. The crunch of stone is quite satisfying.

          Guild Wars 2 Champion’s Sacrifice and the Battle of Claw Island

          We went to the Hylek village (Hylek are giant frogs) and talked to Archen Foreland. The Hylek were distraught, Ikniu’s brother was missing. So we went to look for him and we found out that the Hylek champions had been turned into corrupted monsters. We had to deliver that terrible news and then of course we had to go put them down. In doing that we had to fight Sabiti and bring back his head as proof. We argued about who was going to carry the head. I forget who carried it but it wasn’t me.

          Then we went to Claw Island and there was a huge battle. It was terrible and had to light those lights (I forget what they are called but they mean HELP) and the main dude was very much against doing that since they had not been lit in like a billion years and he was going to be embarrassed but we did it anyway. There were so many undead and undead ships (so creepy) but in the end we won. Just barely.

              The Damsels Game Episode 141, Scraping Mechanics

              The Damsels are three lady gamers who like to play games and then talk about them. Tonight we are going to be playing Guild Wars 2. Stick around after the cast! We played a lot of games this time and we will talk about a lot of them. DDO, Horizon Zero Dawn, Scrap Mechanic, Far Cry 5, 7 Days to Die, Guild Wars 2, and who knows what else! Thanks so much for listening! 

              http://www.podcastgarden.com/episode/the-damsels-game-141_161638

              This week, the Damsels Game is sponsored by Lessah and Mythery’s characters from Far Cry 5. That’s right, they have grown so rich that they can now afford everything! How many Prepper Stashes are too many, you ask? The answer is simple. All your Stashes are belong to me!  

              Intro:  

              The Damsels Recorded Live on Sunday, January 31st. This is our 141st show.  

              Jibber Jabber Time! 

              • Emails
                • Yes Lessah, I got an email.
                • We have an email
              • What we learned:
                • Lessah: Bulls hate trucks. 
                • Myth: If you do Clutch Nixon Challenges with a partner they have two challenges. 1. You must maintain the appropriate game permitted distance from your partner and 2. The actual challenge. BUT only one of you has to actually complete the challenge for both to get credit. I also learned that Cissly Tyson lived to be 96! 
                • Sahba: I learned how to use controllers in Scrap Mechanic.  So cool.  

              Rumors, News, and Lies 

              • Before we start!  Spoiler!!! 
              1. Zoey’s Extraordinary Playlist is back on!  
              2. The Expanse is pretty good. I am on episode 1 of season 2 now. 
              3. Remember the last show when I sang Mythery a rap about her? 
                1. Well… brace yourselves

              Scrap Mechanic 

              So, we played and we got our butts kicked repeatedly. This was our 2nd day in this world and we haven’t actually crafted anything. Unless you count feeding cows corn so that they pop out milk for us to drink so we don’t starve to death. We did plant a couple of gardens but one is quite some distance from where we have decided to stay so gathering food from there is inconvenient for now, making recovering from dying so that one can go and grab one’s backpack slightly more difficult than it should be. I think we were ill prepared for the section of the map we had decided to attack (no guns, no food, no buffs, no shielding, no anything) and therefore were pounded ….no not true. We were one shot many times until we managed to take them out, which of course we ultimately did so we could retrieve our belongings. The beginning and end of Scrap Mechanic. I’m still having fun there and plan to give it more chances but alas not all games are for everyone. Sahba and I have a 2 person game going that we plan to continue but Lessah is not so enamored with this game and that’s OK. Anyway, you never know, it’s in early access and if things change and she wants to give it another go I’ll allow it.

                • We met Jacob (ONLY YOU)
                  • No spoilers but it’s a bit of a psychological thriller situation. I really enjoyed him at the end because he brainwashed me to do so. 
                    • Also, Joseph got upset when we defeated Faith and John, but he cried over Jacob. He loved him.

                    • Some guy thinks we are adorable.

                  • Sahba: I also learned Myth is Drac’s sugar mama (I’m from the North, so I say sugar <G>).  No, seriously, I learned so many things but I guess the best is that my range of game enjoyment is vast.

                1. The Expanse – on Prime. I’m on episode 3. It’s pretty involved.  

                Myth has no words???? 

                Quotes: Cloning is fun.

                There are two colors. Pink and Not pink. 

                Why did you paint that cat pink? Because he wasn’t pink yet.

                    • This is all about pride and prowess. Either you can fight like a Norn or maybe you should have stayed in the tavern/ ice cave. I love that my character has a nemesis she hates just because he’s an arrogant ass. 
                    • I liked cheering Lessah on as she did her challenges.

                The Damsels are three lady gamers who like to play games and then talk about them. We played Guild Wars 2 and the Winter Event was really cool. Also, the quests were looooong. Mythery will tell you all about it in this week’s show. We got some new games and we are going to set some (attainable?) goals! Thanks so much for listening! 

                Here is the episode! Sorry, I can’t seem to embed them anymore 🙁

                    • Rand T 1 week ago – YAY! At about 1:40 you missed a field with a few potatoes! Supply Drops: Shortly after you hear the plane – is when the supplies are dropped – so if you see the plane – then you can gauge where the drop is. In the video it’s about 2 ticks east of the directly south marker. Distance is hard to gauge though. OH! Another thing is – when you get close to the supply drop – it will appear in the map! So says CAD!
                • What we learned:
                  • Lessah: A bunch of my favorite games were on sale stupid cheap.

                Guild Wars 2

                Winter Festival…kinda. Holy crap! It’s the eternal quest of all eternity. I thought we were saving the toys and then I thought we were saving the toy princess and then she turned out to be a little bitch but I’m pretty sure that doesn’t even matter because this quest NEVER ENDS!!! Dolls dolls dolls! Time to paint the dolls, the dolls are running. See the dolls run. Run dolls run. The dolls run fast. Very fast. Wait! The last doll is hiding and not running. She is standing verwy still. ARGH!!! RUN! RUN, now you must run very fast!! Run fast run!!

                .

                We were introduced to the three Orders and made aware of the true threat of the Elder Dragons. I was persuaded to permanently join an order to aid in the fight against the dragons.  I joined the Durmand Priory.

                We worked with the orders to rescue a researcher who has discovered that the dragons consume magic, whose research is being covered up by the Arcane Eye.

                 Durmand Priory: The scholars of the Priory believe the dragon can be defeated using ancient knowledge of past victories.

                  The Damsels Game, Episode 136, Thankful for All the Games

                  The Damsels are three lady gamers who like to play games and then talk about them. It’s Thanksgiving Week and we might take a moment to give thanks to all the games that have helped us escape reality for a few precious moments during this awful pandemic. Seriously, our sanity has been salvaged. Well minus Mythery who wasn’t sane to start with. But she is intact at her baseline! Thanks so much for listening! 

                  Here is the show!

                  http://www.podcastgarden.com/episode/damsels-of-ddo-ep-136_160063

                  Intro:  

                  This week, the Damsels Game is sponsored by The Damsels Game! That’s right and this is not a joke ad. I want you to consider 2 things right here right now.

                  First. Subscribe to our Podcast. You can get a podcast app on your mobile device and listen in the car on your way to…. Quarantine. Listen at your job… which if it’s at your home is easier. Links are in every single description in the show notes on our website: Damselsofddo.com.  I’m seriously considering putting the show back up on youtube.

                  Speaking of that, go Subscribe to my Youtube Channel so you can watch the Highlights that get published from our gameplay. One day I might talk Sahba into forging her own youtube videos and playlist. That day, I will be unhorsed as the main video maker/ editor but until that day, let’s all pretend I know what I’m doing and go watch our highlights!   

                  The Damsels Recorded Live on Saturday, November 21st. This is our 136th show.  

                  Jibber Jabber Time! 

                  • Did we get any Email this week?  yes!
                  • . I’ll bring the elephant into the room because we have yet to really talk about it on our podcast. 
                    • How many people do you personally know who have had Covid? 
                      • Does anyone else feel a bit exhausted? Like you can’t do anything else to “stop the spread”. My City got an Emergency alert about the rapid spread and I was like… what else am I supposed to do? 
                  • What we learned:
                    • Lessah: I learned that Oreos are going to have a Gluten Free option in January. 
                    • Myth: We did accidental science!
                    • Sahba: The telescope at Arecibo will be dismantled.

                    The Damsels are three lady gamers who like to play games and then talk about them. Tonight is all about 7 Days to Die and Valmod. Different from the vanilla game, the modding community in 7 Days is really amazing. We also talk about Far Cry 5, Guild Wars 2, and Dungeons and Dragons Online. Thanks so much for listening!

                    This week, the Damsels Game is sponsored by the Makers of Blunderbuss and Blunderbuss ammo. Arguably the most underrated weapon in Navezgane, this thing…whatever it is…will announce your presence with authority. It fires at a rate of 1. That’s it… it just fires the one and then you have to hope you got em while you reload. But the results, folks, the results speak for themselves. The Blunderbuss. Use it! You might not die!

                    Among Us

                    We had the smallest group possible, 4, so it wasn’t too tough to catch the murderer BUT we died from sabotage several times. Sahba is evil and very sneaky!!! I however, am a terrible liar. This game is fun but I think the more people the more fun.

                    https://www.nexusmods.com/7daystodie

                    Valmod is our favorite system because it’s specifically balanced if you have a party. One person can specialize in hunting, another in mechanics, another in engineering. It makes the vanilla game seem very slow to me. Other mods we like… bigger backpack. 

                    We tried War of the Walkers once but I wasn’t really as into it. I didn’t hate the one where you can pick up stray companions but the one we got snored so loudly and she was really just a souped up villager.

                      • Worthless violence for violence sake. Why would ANYONE listen to her after Jessica shot that girl? It would be like our game group meeting up IRL and someone kills Rent. I would murder that B#$% as soon as her back was turned.

                    7 Days to Die

                    We did a “it’s horde night and it’s no big deal so whatever, lets do this so we can  move on to more important things” horde night. More important things you say??? What could be more important than a bloody zombie infested night of killing?? Well, I’ll tell you. Lessah had a LOT of house painting to do and not only does she have to paint the house she has to make the paint! I am up to my earballs in wiring, lighting, turret projects, and then there is the enormous remodel of the patio and rec room (I honestly don’t know what Sahba is doing right now) and this is just stuff on the group server. In our Damsel game we are homeless and desperately going from trader to trader which seem to get farther and farther apart so we can finish our class quests. So I ask, who has time for horde nights??

                    • Ghost Recon Breakpoint
                      • Worthy opponents. The problem is… I don’t feel like I have ##### it. 
                        • Shoot Em up fest aka, thinly veiled guy porn. 
                      • The UI is crowded looking and not super intuitive. The things they changed from other games I don’t think should have been changed.
                      • Among Us
                        • Very fun/ fast-paced werewolf/ mafia type game, can play on phone or PC
                        • App is free, most of my friends and family are already playing. 
                        •  Don’t Starve Together
                          • Hard game is hard. Death is so real.  
                          • Visuals are stifling. I’m not sure I understand this game yet but I think it’s worth trying out.

                        The Damsels Game, Episode 133, Testy Festy

                        The Damsels are three lady gamers who like to play games and then talk about them.  It’s time to confess your sins! Only the Seeds can save us. We aren’t sure how but things really went down this time in Far Cry 5. Always remember, have a plan to separate the bull from his mountain oysters. Guild Wars 2 is a trek through fantasy content that is engaging and fun as well with our baby Asuras. 

                        Here is the show! Just left click and it will open in a new window.

                        This week, the Damsels Game is sponsored by The Spread Eagle. Need a nice, quiet… unreasonably dark place to have lunch or dinner? Well, the Spread Eagle is for you. Ladies do drink free at some point. We aren’t sure when that is because we weren’t able to access the VIP area. But do stop by just be careful your car doesn’t get stolen.

                        The Damsels Recorded Live on Sunday, October 10th. This is our 133rd show.

                        • Far Cry 5 this week.
                          • It was all so innocent…hunting cougars and deer. 
                            • Then it all went horribly wrong. 
                              • We stumbled into the main storyline and the Seeds tried to drown us, we got saved by a preacher. 
                              • Then when we were trying to do smaller missions, we stumbled into the main storyline and got captured AGAIN. 
                                • We got Drugged. And then Drug away. We were double drugged. 
                            • Mythery

                          • Myth: I can’t fly a plane in Far Cry 5
