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.
  • 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 

  • DDO

    • There’s going to be a Skills and Balance Update on May 11
    • July 27 – First look at the third expansion of GW2: End of Dragons.  It’ll be a livestream event.
  • Gaming in the News
    • AARP The Magazine (Apr/May 2021) – The Mega World of Gaming
      • 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)

  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.

Let’s talk about Ark!

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!

    The Damsels Game, Episode 144, How to MMO

    Hello! We are the Damsels Game!

    • Mythery’s skills are growing every day!

    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:

        • 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. Rytlok?
    • 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.

    • 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.

    The Damsels are three lady gamers who like to play games and then talk about them. Tonight we are going to be playing through our third episode of our 7 Days to Die POV series live. Holy smokes, we finished Far Cry 5, what a wild ride it was! We talk about that and the harsh mistress that is Ark Survival Evolved. Yes, we went there…repeatedly. Let’s just say the crazy bird ladies of ARK are back! We also talk a little about Valheim but you aren’t going to like what I have to say. Thanks so much for listening anyway!

    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. 

    • Our two weeks in gaming

        • EXTREME Spoiler warning! 
          • So Joseph has access to at least one nuclear warhead. He sets it off. You and Montana are proper fucked. Even if you escape the blast, you are still going to die of cancer much sooner than you’d like. 
          • How angry is Canada going to be because we caused a Chernobyl situation? 
    • Far Cry New Dawn 
      • I got through the first scenario but…
        • We need to talk about Radiation and Fallout and Nuclear Winter

        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!

        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.

        • Our two weeks in gaming
        • 7Days to Die 
          • Server
            • Lessah raided a bunker with my drunk co-worker. 
            • Mythery made shotgun turrets for horde, horde night is ready! 
          • Questions for Sahba Jade
            • It’s day 4 in Very Vanilla, you have no home, no roof, no gun. What is your horde plan? 
            • Modded is academic, easier. 
        • Far Cry 5
          • 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. 
            • I bought a boat paddle because I’m so rich and I love whacking people with it. 
          • Let’s say a few words about Hurk. 
            • Very funny NPC that you should hire ASAP in Jacob’s area. 
            • Daddy issues. His dad is running for Senate in Montana. 
            • Can fly a helicopter, might not bring it back. 
        • GW2 – playing this tonight!!!
          • I played GW2 with Sahba! 
            • Got all the XP’s on Asuras, ready to go on to level 40 story. 
              • Some guy thinks we are adorable.
            • After that, we can probably head straight into the level 50 story whenever we want. 
        • Horizon Zero Dawn
          • Myth – Chasing Racoons. 
        • Scrap Mechanic
          • It’s cool. I like the cows.

            • 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.

          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.

          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.

              • 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.

          • Before we start!  Spoiler!!! 

          Guild Wars 2

          .

          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 137, All We Want for Christmas

            All I Want For Christmas

            The Damsels are three lady gamers who like to play games and then talk about them. Today we are talking about games we have on our Wish List for Christmas and beyond. It’s a little odd that all our lists show NO GAMES in common. Thanks so much for listening!

            http://www.podcastgarden.com/episode/the-damsels-game-137_160382

            This week, the Damsels Game is sponsored by Oh Shitz Drops. Are you afraid of heights? Well, these babies are for you.  Available in most vending machines around Navezgane. These sweet little candies have a purpose. Fall Damage? Not today, Tall Building. I popped my drops! I’ll be taking 100% of nothing for the next five minutes. 

            Pop your drops and be prepared for those Oh Shitz Moments. 

            Intro:  

            The Damsels Recorded Live on Sunday, December 6th. This is our 137th show.  

            Jibber Jabber Time!

            • Subnautica Cyclops Build Fail
            • Brace yourselves. I’m going to  talk about my Very Vanilla Series on my? Our? youTube Channel. 
              • If you haven’t watched my series, you can get caught up easily. Only three episodes are out, so go watch! Episodes are already uploaded and scheduled for release through the end of the year. 
                • Speaking of the Very Vanilla Series, there have been comments 🙂
              • Questions: 
                • Is it still vanilla if it’s not all default settings? 
                  • I can never find supply drops. 
                  • When I die, I drop EVERYTHING. When you have nothing, that is significant. 
                  • How many Episodes is a Season? 
              • What do you think of a Vanilla ARK Ark Series for Summer 2021? 
            • What we learned:
              • Lessah: I learned that I can’t drive ATVs in any game. 
              • Myth: Every woman within the sound of my voice needs to hear this! They have clinics where you can take your mate so he can experience the pain of childbirth for a solid 10 minutes.

            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.

              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.

              • Raft?

              • Did we check the Damsels Email this week? 
              • Far Cry 5 this week.
                • Bookworm Errors are ruining my game! 
                  •  Other Ubisoft titles just don’t have the same appeal as FC5
                    • FC4, on an island, meh
                    • Breakpoint (all ghost recon), same thing. A faraway place that I can’t connect to. 
                    • Tom Clancy Division 1 & 2 are both in places that are closer to home so I connect with the story better. FC5 in rural Hope County Montana is a perfect place because it’s isolated enough to have a contained cultist uprising. 
              • internet 🙂
              • What we learned:
                • Lessah:  The Internet sucks. I want my redneck cultists back 🙁  I AM ADDICTED. But it’s a good pain. 
                  • Confession 
                • Myth: All I learned is how hooked I am on Far Cry 5. I’m 3 and someone stole my lollipop!
                • Sahba: We’re going to play “Don’t Starve Together Return of Them”

              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??

              • Other games
              • 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

                  •  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.

                      • 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.

                  The Damsels are three lady gamers who like to play games and then talk about them.  We played Dungeons and Dragons Online after a brief hiatus of moving and setting up new gaming rigs. Today we are gearing up to play Guild Wars 2 but we also dove deep into Far Cry 5 and (of course) 7 Days to Die. ! Thanks so much for listening!

                  Lessah jibberjabbers about things and Myth corrects and Sahba sleeps

                  • Someone played Far Cry 5 this week. And it’s…. 
                    • Very much like Ghost Recon 
                      • Auto Drive
                      • You can do whatever you want. There are missions but you set the pace.

                  • What we learned:

                      • Myth: I can’t read my map after I’ve been skunked.
                      • Sahba: All four seasons of The Good Place are now available on Netflix 🙂

                  Guild Wars 2 The Life of an Asura

                  My girl, Mythbehave, is a recent graduate of the College of Synergistics. The members of this college study magical metaphysics, cybernetic systems, and the theory of abstract structures. Sounds fancy doesn’t it? What it boils down to really, is a focus on the study of patterns and mystical complexities over the development of concrete applications BUT seems to provide the foundation for a more coherent and profound understanding of the Eternal Alchemy, the unifying system of the cosmos. 

                  Sahba and Gemalin (Lessah) are graduates of the College of Dynamics. The members of this college are typically enthusiastic about their highly experimental work, spontaneously imagining potential solutions to problems no one else yet perceives. They are known for devising ingenious, highly unstable and equally unpredictable contrivances, always on the bleeding edge of asura high magitechnology. Members of the college believe that an experiment is only a failure if nothing is learned from it.They are known to have an acute interest in charr technology.

                  As my final, I invented a teleportation device and it seems like as soon as word got around about it that everyone and their momma tried to steal it from me and claim it as their own. They all wanted the Snaff Prize. During the contest when I was showing the operation to the judges a Tejo’s krewe interrupted the proceedings and tried to take it by force but in the middle of the fight Councillor Flax announced it the winner as part of Valkk’s krewe (my krewe). Tejo screamed that it was his and he wouldn’t stand for that decision and then took off with the translocator.

                  The Damsels are three lady gamers who like to play games and then talk about them.  We are still trying to break into the Vault of Night in Dungeons and Dragons Online. Things went well on that front but the future is unclear. Dragons should not be guarding anything that doesn’t belong to them so good luck making a withdrawal from the bank. We also played Outlaws of the Old West, an early access survival crafting game, and we talked Sahba into trying out Guild Wars2. Thanks so much for listening!

                  This week, the Damsels sponsor has a correction to their advertisement for a free toaster: 

                  The Kundarak Bank has amended its offer of a free toaster following customer complaints. 

                   

                  Apparently, when asked, Fred replied back with “Please include 75$ for shipping and handling.” They apologize to the one person who asked for a free toaster. Still… Send an in-game mail to “FierceFred” and ask, “Hey man, Where is my totally free, no conditions apply, toaster?” 

                  It’s all about the language.

                  Sorry other games, but for the time being this is what takes up space in my head. I dream about this game. When I sleep I have dreamed about it, when I daydream I think about it, and then I actually think about it on purpose. SO, this is going to be the beginning in a series of stories I will be telling about our adventures as Asuras in the Guild Wars world. It will be fun, I promise. First let me talk a little about the world in general. There are five playable races and each begin in their own country/land of origin. BTW the world is a continent called Tyria and it is huge!

                  There are humans of course and were once the dominant species but they have lost their homeland and mainly live in Kryta. As you  travel the continent you can see their once magnificent kingdoms lying in ruins.

                   

                  There are the Charr, who are a race of large, savage, feline creatures. War defines them and victory is all that matters. They are raised to be warriors from birth (but boy are they cute!) and have no gods. Their main hangout is the Crucible of Eternity.

                   

                  Norn are a race of towering hunters and when I say towering, the average Norn is 9 feet tall. They hail from the snow covered Far Shiverpeaks but have been forced to relocate to central Shiverpeaks. The Great Lodge of Hoelbrak is a nice place to visit. Good parties.

                  The Sylvari are from the Grove and they aren’t born there, they awaken. They awaken beneath the Pale Tree with knowledge they have gathered from their pre-life Dream. They are a noble race and seek adventure and travel. They are the newest race in Tyria and they are about the same size as humans but have leaves where hair would be.

                   

                  Asura are a race of artisans who secretly lived below ground until they were forced out by the Great Destroyer (GW1). They quickly adapted to surface life and are one of the most powerful races in Tyria. They are considered alchemagical inventors and intellectual giants. They are typical between 2’10” and 3’11” tall, slender, with head, hands, and feet in a bit exaggerated dimensions. Highly articulate ears and large eyes that come in a variety of colors. We won’t talk about the shark like teeth. Rata Sum is an interesting and amazing place and also their home.

                   

                  We are playing three Asura who plan to go out and get into plenty of trouble. Sahba is an engineer, jack of all trades and eventually master of many. She is currently healing us with a healing turret. I’m a mesmer, one day I’ll be a master of misdirection. I already have three clones I can create to fight by my side. And Lessah is an assassin or maybe a thief or something that she will tell us about because I can’t find any information about assassins and their super secret stuff.

                  • This game has real potential. I wish they would do the following:
                  • Clean up the crafting system so that some benches will act as duel purpose benches. Why do you need a spinning wheel and a sewing bench? Put them on the same work bench.
                  • Fix Guard/ Hired gun AI. They stop following you and get bugged very easily.

                    • I also feel incredibly engaged by the story arcs. Don’t get me started on how much I appreciate the graphics.

                  Damsels of DDO Episode 129, A Not So Small Small Problem

                  The Damsels are three lady gamers who talk about the games they play. This time we had some big problems with A Small Problem in DDO. We also decided to break into a vault…at night. I mean OF night! Vault of Night. Only you can’t just rock up to a vault and say “Hey, can I get in?” There are steps involved. Who knew? Sahba and Mythery also tried to tackle the Wild West for the low price of 8 dollars. We will see how that went. Thanks so much for listening!

                  • What we learned:

                  A Ludicrous Predicament

                   

                  I have some not very nice things to say about this quest so I’m going to do like Thumper’s mom said and keep them to myself. I will say, this wasn’t the 1st time this quest made me feel like I had wasted a small chunk of my life. I was very happy when Sahba said she didn’t mind redboxing Under the Big Top AND that she was able to get in that way. That quest is a tad long but 4 chests at the end! Woot.

                  Party in House P

                   

                  We produced a play! Rave reviews, so professionally performed, coming to your neighborhood soon! I guess we did almost all of the optionals in party poopers except the one called “I’m not ready to come out of the closet so go away or I’ll bite your head off.” Lessah doesn’t like that one because she thinks we shouldn’t force someone out of the closet, even if they are a big scary demon. There are a ton of optionals in this quest and we did do most of them but I don’t exactly know the separation between all of them and the actual quest. I was going to look that up on the wiki so I could talk about just the optionals here BUT the ads on the WIKI are out of control. Seriously! They are covering the content. Two ads on the party crashers page covered almost the entire page. And when I closed them there was just a big white splotch there in their place, so I still couldn’t see the page. What the heck?? I closed the page and went back hoping maybe different/smaller ads would be there or something but no luck. Couldn’t look at that page. I think I (very sweetly) mentioned this a while back but no one listened and now it is much worse. DDO has such a nice wiki, it is a shame to have it ruined like this. There is no reason ads need to overlay page content. That’s all I have to say. For now.

                  • That time me and Myth tell everyone about our tabletop D&D character backstories 

                   

                   

                  • To Sahba, Do you set an alarm for….. (surprise question because Sahba is the worst at not waiting to react or answer until the live show) 

                   

                   

                  • What we learned:
                      • Lessah:  I should have been a helicopter pilot and I wasn’t meant to have a pet hyena.   
                      • Myth: blah blah blah

                  • RuPaul’s Drag Race is the only reason I still have cable. That and HBO. But should I pull the plug on the cable? I get my news more often than not from PBS Newshour OR…. WION because I love how savage they are towards the rest of the world OR… Australia. 
                    • HBO Go worth it? 
                    • You can watch RuPaul’s Drag race on the VH1 App. In fact, I found Drag Race UK. 
                    • All-Stars started Friday night. Looks like it’s going to be good although there were a couple of girls from season 3 that I didn’t recognize. I did, however, recognize Ongina from season 1!

                  The Lost Gatekeepers

                  Here’s how I understand this, the Gatekeepers, who are these really old druids that hail from Khorvaire and are the protectors of Eberron decided they were interested in seeing what was going on in Xen’drik. So they put one of their “druid groves” in the harbor of our lovely Stormreach.

                  I guess the first thing that happened when they got here was someone got lost because the first guy we met, Thel Shattertusk, asked us to go to the Cerulean Hills and look for him. We went out there…I don’t think we actually found any lost people. I think we may have seen some things that, well…let’s just say that next, we went over to an abandoned mine.

                  Heart of the Problem

                  Some guy named Capstone said he was over here finding new old things or old new things. I’m not exactly sure but we went to see what he was talking about. Mostly what we found were things trying to kill us, like fire mephits and a big magma thing, plus there were some clay golems hanging around in there.

                  Rosemary’s Ballad

                  After we left the mine we ran into Lily Hargrove and I think but am not exactly sure that she wanted us to go to the garden behind her family’s farm. I suppose it is about time to admit that up to this point, in and around all of these places we have been going we have been seeing and hearing things. Like memories, these other people’s memories so things were a little weird. It took us a hot minute to find the way into the garden but there was a disembodied voice talking to us, lots of notes left around, and many op memories/visions to behold. In the end, we had to kill Sage Hargrove.

                  The Sacred Bounty

                  Next, we found ourselves in a run-down temple and I really don’t know what we were doing in there. It was pretty small but once we were in we couldn’t seem to get out without solving the puzzle in each room. Then there was a big Vine Horror blocking the exit of course. We’re out so there’s that. Did I mention that those crazy visions were in there too???

                  • Other games

                   

                  • 7 Days to Die just keeps popping into our hearts. I have a little to no zombies game where I am building a… birdcage. 

                   

                   

                  •  Tom Clancy’s Ghost Recon

                   

                      • What a great game! It is NOT a cakewalk. But it’s a great game to play with friends. 
                        • If you get seen by UNIDAD (the police in the game) you are Screwed. Where do they get their money/ support/ training? These guys are deadly. The thing to do if you live in this setting is work for them! These guys eat. 

                   

                  • Subsistence

                   

                      • The graphics in this game look a ton better and now there is a map!
                      • Fishing is a great way to survive until the river freezes over in winter. 
                        •  Fishing traps suck. They need work. They don’t augment your time in terms of taking time out of your day to fish because they rarely catch fish. 
                      • Animal traps are pretty cool, just don’t run out of bait. Also, check them each day on your route to look for supplies. The animals in them will eventually die. 
                      • It is so hard to survive. The struggle bus is real but not impossible. That sets this game apart from other survival crafting games like Green Hell.  

                   

                  • Guild Wars 2

                   

                      • I forgot how fun and engaging this game is! There is so much to do and explore. I pay nothing to play this game. They reward me for logging in every day. The currency system is not broken. I have collected/ earned all of ten gold pieces in all my playtime.  
                        • For the most part, I rely on Karma and level rewards and LUCK to upgrade my gear. It has worked out well. I don’t have to worry about the next shiny thing that’s going to make me more powerful, I can just play and explore and not worry about it. 
                        • I can play alone and accidentally run into events with other players or I can play with friends and just fill up hearts by doing really dumb things. 
                          • Example: We went to a town where the goal was to participate in a tavern party. We got XP for it! 
                      • Again, this game was a one-time expense for me. If I had to choose if a subscription was required, (right now) I would leave DDO as a VIP. There is just too much that appeals to me. Example: I am a chef. I explore and pick wild veggies and kill animals for meat and make meals. The meals give me and my friends XP bonus and other buffs. I didn’t BUY that. I MADE it.
