Thanks for having us on, this was a lot of fun!

That was a great show. Inspired me to post my Salad Shooter build. Tough for me to do since I don't use planners and had to type it out.

I like that there will be both a higher difficulty setting (DM party kill) and Legendary quests post L30.

And Gnome Artificrs for the win!

Indeed!

It's always fun to hear hints at what is coming next to DOD.

I'm not sure we've even told Severlin all the things we leaked yet. ;)

Thanks for the show, it was a good time.

Very informative. Maybe it's good sometimes if Sev isn't around.

It is always easier to ask forgiveness than to ask permission.

Was one of the best podcasts.

The explanation for balance was spot on.

I miss the forum puzzles. I could never solve them, but they were a very DnD way of engaging with the community.

Also, you guys should be interviewed without Sev more often. Nothing against Sev, I really like him in interview mode. But I think when he steps into answer a question there is sometimes an assumption from the rest of the devs present that This Is All That May Be Said on the subject and you guys tend to clam up... but I don't think you necessarily have to. As in: I don't know that Sev is really intending to signal that every time he speaks. I think when he does want to signal that, he says things like 'I think all we can say is...' and it's pretty clear. The rest of the time, you guys should feel free to babble away. This was a really enjoyable interview.

And I don't hold you to a single word in terms of final outcomes.

Thanks for all the info. Like the sound of Legend Feat. Possible new twist of feat very useful.
More info on Gnome would be nice.
Great to see that you guys are listening to the gamers.
Can't wait to for Reaper difficulty.
For last couple years . I pretty much don't even examine random generated loot. Basically auto sell.
Loot overhaul is very needed. You guys rock!

Also on a side note. Great advice for stepping into the business. tku
