Damsels of DDO Episode 1, The Shroud

Welcome to Damsels of DDO!  An offshoot of the DDO Cocktail Hour where girl gamers talk about things that are important to them in the world of Dungeons and Dragons Online. For this first installment we are talking about the Shroud!  Do people still go there?  Is it even worth it?  And what’s a Harry Beater?  Thanks so much for listening!

A Note From Lessah:  so far You Tube is the only place I plan to post shows because of the video/ Twitch ability.  Plus, when I finally fix the CTH’s iTunes Feed, I don’t want mixed up audio files going to the wrong place.  Aside from that, this is a kind of special side project where I get to monkey with video!

Intro:  Tavern Music!  (Pop Quiz: Name the music that plays at the end and get a mention on the next cast!) 

What even is this show?

This time around, we revisit an oldie but a goodie, the Shroud!

Housekeeping!

Intro:  Heal all of me!  By Rent2Pwn

 What would I do without your sweet heals

Keepin’ me alive while ignoring their feels

-  Got My hit points (brimming)- no kidding, I can’t stop you now

- What’s going on with the rest of the guys

– They’re on a downward hitpoint slide

- And they’re all dyin’, don’t know what hit em’ but I’ll be alright

[Pre-Chorus:]

The fighter is bleeding

- but i’m doing fine

- The caster is half out of her mind.

[Chorus:]

– ’cause all of you

– heals all of me

- Love the buffs and all the pee pools

– screw the rest of all the people

Give your heals to me

I’ll stay alive for you

At the end of all the fighting

They’re part dead and I’m still livin’

‘Cause you throw your heals at me

and you give them none of you, ohoh

2) Which Monster would you not want to live with?  Troglodytes excluded.

2a) Which DDO NPC would you not want to live with and why? (And yes Samius, it can be because I told you you can’t ever bang them).

Is this thing on???

While my better half assures me that I did nothing wrong and it was just poor timing on my part, updating my site while some sort of maintenance was going on… I still continue to think that it was in fact my fault for breaking the Cocktail Hour so effectively.
But hey! If you are going to screw something up, really put your back into it right?

So what happens now?  What about all the cool stuff that used to be here?  Well.  I hope to bring some of it back and maybe get some new stuff too!  Only I know nothing about Word Press and am still learning.  I was really used to Quick Blog so I didn’t change it.   Getting the shows back on the site will be more challenging.  Samius has a pretty good idea for that too though and since he is better at Word Press than I am, I hope he rolls up his sleeves and digs in or at least helps me learn!  Either way, I’m just happy to have my website back!

Thank you to everyone who sent me messages of support!  We have a show planned for this week!  (Right Samius?)

Cheers!

Lessah
