    Question Tearing me apart

    Now I'm really in limbo over if I should get this or the Thunderholmes pack when it goes live. I'll probably only have the points for one

    Do we have any idea how much each will be yet?
    Because DDO content is created by hand, some issues cannot be fixed with a global change. We must fix these issues one-by-one by hand with the help of bug reports. This includes:
    Ladder issues: please include the /loc when reporting a ladder issue

    AFAIK, its FREE for VIPs. You can sign up for VIP for one month and try both of them out for only $15. If only like a particular one on month #2, you can decide on your own where your points will go.

    Ed did mention in the video that he's not getting rich or famous for making D&D modules; so I do not expect them to be expensive.

    Since when is Ed the CO-creator of FR?

    It's always a shame when the hammer of poor design choices smashes the fun of player tactical adaptation.

    Default Looking forward to this update as well

    I'm looking forward to it as well, but it will be forever before I get a character high enough to get out there, lol.

    I've read your blog by the way...I enjoy reading these kind of things. Not being critical, but I see you bounce around between a lot of characters. If you would focus on one character for a couple of weeks (I think you said you have a lvl 22 character)...you could get that one toon up to 28 in time for the updated on March 10th.

    Just a suggestion.

    I am SO excited for this there are no words. I'm not a huge fan of Forgotten Realms, always having preferred to run Eberron at my table, but Ed Greenwood and his Haunted Halls has always been an inspiration to me as a DM. Great interview, definitely looking forward to this.

    I was under the impression that Thunderholme will be free to VIPs, but Haunted Halls is 'being released as a module because of it's sheer size'. I'm not sure if that means it will be free to VIP or is being treated like an expansion and thus will have to be purchased by everyone (ugh).

    It free to VIP as well. We've already been told there are no plans for any "everyone pays" expansions this year.

    on lamania they were 2 separate packs, i assume, this will happen on the live server too.
    estemates have gone up too a 1000 to 1250 points each.
    In my opinion, that's madness, the 3 most expensive packs (vale/gianthold/the sands) cover a wider range of levels, contain better gear for those levels, contain better exp for their levels.
    they are free to vip's

    Oh thank goodness. That's a relief.

    Most everything in D&D is a copy of something else. A majority of the bestiary/lore comes from myths & folklore.
