    Cool Sarlona's newest player

    Sarlona has a new young gamer.

    ***Ok disclaimer, I know there are other kids that play this game and a post about it is a bit silly, but it was a lot of fun and I thought I would share.

    My son has been bugging me to let him play, so a couple of months ago I did the referral thing and got him a F2P account setup then use a couple of guest passes and two boxed a fresh level seven modified exploiter build through a few quest like Crono and Delera’s and got him some gear.

    So finally Saturday, I was able to get him setup and playing. Since my computer is a different place than his, I set him up on voice chat, made a party and started teaching him how to play.

    It was the most fun I have had playing DDO in a long time, with shouts of:

    “Warning bad guys coming in, again warning bad guys.”
    “I killed it, I killed it.”
    “I need more magic.” (said with 95% of his blue bar full)
    And my personal favorite;
    “For justice!”

    It got even funnier when a guildie (who must have been out of his mind) joined us and we got:

    “Daddy, who is this dude?”
    “Is that dude still here?”
    “I gave that dude my magic.” (said after casting jump)

    I have to say playing DDO with a seven year old is a blast.

    But don’t worry Sarlona he is not allowed to group with anyone else but me, and a few guildies looking for a laugh, (for what he says not how he plays, because he does fairly well there) so he will not be messing up any of your parties, at least not yet.

    Default That is some cool stuff

    My daughter is 5 now and I am letting her run around a bit with her own toon. She seems more interested in the cosmetic pets and making them do tricks though.

    I used to run with a guildie that was trying to get his dad to play. That was some fun stuff. Watching his dad fall off the pier in the harbor and drown before he could get out was great for a laugh.
    Main toon Gromphia I have others but that is really the only one I play

    My daughter is pretty much the same. She has a level 16 (stoned) thief acrobat which allows her to run around the lower level explorers without getting touched. It is fun to watch.

    Edit (11/18/2012): My daughter has just completed the Web of Chaos chain with us and she had the least deaths. Least kills too but she is only 4.

    My son started playing at 9, he was the third member of Bridge Burners. He's now 11 and off to other games. Back when he was playing, guildies had no problem running with him. In fact, his healbot style of running his cleric made him a much better option than hirelings.

    Now my daughter is bugging me to play. She's 7, not old enough yet. If the game's still around in a year and a half, she'll be playing.

    My 9-year-old daughter plays occasionally, as well, though her favorite thing to do is jump off the airship and see where she lands. She prefers Free Realms over DDO... it's 'prettier' in her words. *cringe*

My main four characters are Randowl (18 rogue 2 artificer mechanic - hope to go back to DC casting some day), Randslar (Bard 14 / Fighter 4 / Rogue 2 Swashbuckler), Randek (Druid CC Caster 17/Fvs 3) and Randomall (Rogue 20 assassin).

    Haha. Neat story. Ive played with my nephew a few times and have had similar experiences. Of course, he is the on the go type though... so he cant sit down long enough. He will get one quest in, then has to run off to do something else. XD
