This week we are privileged to sit down and talk with Severlin, Executive Producer of Standing Stone Games, and Cordovan, Community Manager of Standing Stone Games. We asked him questions about Sharn, the recent producer’s letter, game balance and more!

Producer’s Note: Technical difficulties were rampant this week. We apologize for the poor audio quality during the interview with Severlin and Cordovan, and for the delay in publishing this week’s episode. We strive for better and were unable to achieve our standards this week.

Thanks again to Cordovan and Severlin for 1) sitting down with us for the interview and 2) doing so in the narrow time frame I had available!

Did it never occur to you that you should try and fix the horrible sound quality on Severlin?

It is sometimes impossilbe to hear what he says.

Yes, and I tried a few things and everything pointed to a network issue. At that point every single minute I was troubleshooting was a minute I was losing for the interview.

Fun fact, my internet and TV both went down less than 48 hours after this interview and I only just got it back (literally 15 minutes ago - I uploaded the video by burning half my data plan using my phone as a hotspot). The technician had to rerun about 500 feet of line to my house to repair the problem. Based on all of that, I doubt there was anything I could have done the day of the interview.

However, I do apologize for the audio quality. I know its lousy to listen to. I was basically left with the choice of releasing it like you got it or not at all.

I had a run in with a rouge splitter a couple of months ago. Nipped that in the bud. It's funny how quickly I went into Internet withdrawls. : ) )

I listed to parts a few times in some spots and I was OK that. Lots of win!
