Yeah, I really appreciate you two doing the Stormreach Lighthouse. It's the perfect segment at the right time and is a real good new thing for DDOcast.

Another great episode, if a bit shorter. I liked it.

The new Lighthouse segment is nice, too. I hope it continues.

The misadventures of...?
HHMMM, it seems that the "Misadventures of Laggin" has had its named copied? I've been making them for over 2 years now, so what gives? Not that I have the market cornered on the name, but...
Be creative and make your own name!

Good as usual but it did seem a bit shorter today - checked the time & it was short it also seemed to move along quickly as well which made it more obvious I think.

However 1 small complaint. With the lack of a Khyber presence on the show I expect that Khyber things are not mentioned as much, but to totally leave out Khyber as a server on the show today, well, that is just too much!

So I politely request some sort of addition of a segment to the show about Khyber - drama from the dragon below or something......

I've actually had a lot of shows that go about an hour, although it's been a little while since the last one. I try to get the show between one hour and an hour and a half, but don't always hit that mark.

You are right about Khyber! We used to have a Khyber presence on the show, but I don't think anyone currently doing stuff with the show on a regular basis plays on Khyber. It's an oversight that I hope to get fixed soon.

Thanks for the Mention Jerry.

I will touch base when we get closer to the event ,
and I will be sure to send you some screenshots
and let you know how it goes.


Also,
I Love the new Light house segment.

It is a great thing you guys are doing for the new players.

Keep up the Outstanding work!

Hah! Lessah...funny. I lost a level seven pure rogue to a 118-pt exploding barrel and another player lost his level eight multi-bard. In both cases we were full hit points. If you don't have a lot of hit points those barrels can basically be save-or-die. And as my rogue in heaven now knows well, good reflex saves are no guarantee...

Stay Hard.

And as a cleric to us non pd'ers, let me say this as well: lava can also kill. I have seen a number of lava deaths. It can be hard to keep someone alive who is fighting a monster while standing in lava...

Well I happen to know some players on khyber......I have a bit of xp in the whole dramitic arts....I would happily crash your show, uh I mean come on the show and share something.... well actually I am not very interesting so maybe we should find someone with something to actually say.... I could enervate Asketes to the face though, that is always fun to watch.

Well, at least there's a reference to a forum post by a Khyber player (my adventure pack reviews) in there, even if it has less drama than you might expect.

I'll assume that you're referring to me and my webcomic; if you are not and I have misunderstood you, please disregard the following rebuttal.

Forgive my ignorance, but I have never even heard about this "Misadventures of Laggin", let alone been able to find anything about it aside from this (http://forums.ddo.com/showthread.php?t=196734&highlight=misadventures+laggin) post, which doesn't really say much. If you have been "making them for over two years now", I find it hard to believe that I have never noticed it before. In other words, don't flatter yourself; you had absolutely no influence on the name of my comic.

Secondly, you claim that I have "copied" a name that you created long ago. This accusation is based on one similar word, that being "misadventures". I find that to be so ridiculous, I can't even think of a proper defense against it. Come on, dude. Really? It's called "The Magnificent Misadventures of Mustardo", A.K.A. M3. Yours is called "The Misadventures of Laggin". What's that one more commonly known as? M+L? I might as well just accuse you of copying my last post because yours also included the letter E.

I don't mean to turn this thread into an argument, but why are you making these frivolous accusations? Heck, even if I did "copy" the name from you, it would be quite a bit more creative if only for the effort to include alliteration. I don't see what you're getting at. Or why I'm even bothering to counter your last post.

That is all.

I'd love to have you on the show, but I have to admit that I'm not really sure about segments just about the different servers. We don't currently have segments dedicated to what's going on on X server, mostly because I'm not really interested in that kind of thing. I'd rather have someone do a segment about something else and be FROM Khyber, able to weigh in on stuff and tout their Khyber roots, ya know?

But I'm open to just about whatever on the show, so if you can make it interesting to a wide audience (aka - not just for Khyber folks), send it in!

Mockduck

Oh, and I'm not getting involved in the misadventures debate. Although I would say that the Misadventures of ____ is fairly common in literature and the like, so it kinda seems like more of an odd coincidence than anything else. A quick google search of "misadventures of" turned up 1.45 million results....also, double alliteration like "marvelous misadventures of" was pretty common as well.

Wow Jerry,
I was just harrassing you some more (because I am a pain to be sure) but I will seriously consider putting some idea's together & sending them your way. I am a bit of the attention ***** (and loot *****, and caffiene *****....wait a second, I don't like where this is going...) but I do work well with others..... Give me a few days to work some ideas around & then I will drop you a line. If anything sounds good we can talk about it further, if not, well you DO have make the show interesting & I wouldn't hold it against you if I don't have any interesting ideas.....
:)

Very True, and I have to say that I commented in there (I think) and I read it all (I know) and it was a great idea that I +1'd you for. Keep up the good work.

I do think its good to have a DDOcast person from all of the servers and was surprised to recently learn that we were Khyber-free! I'd be happy to have you do something on the show if you want.

If nothing else, it's kind of a cheap way to promote the show, ya know? :)

Sure. Xfire is a third party program that keeps track of your game time and allows you to do things like take screenshots, videos and chat with people. Think instant messaging for gamers, basically. www.xfire.com
