Where is Patrick? The world need to know!

A quick note from Lessah

Hello!  

This past couple of weeks has been very trying for me, my father had emergency surgery, and I ended up helping him recover afterwards. Why do old people live in the middle of nowhere without real amenities like WiFi and gourmet coffee?  I have no idea!  But that is where I’ve been! He’s doing much better, and honestly I had a good time watching the World Series with my Dad! 

Additionally, I have been accepted (officially) back to college! My gaming schedule is going to shift dramatically! I am very excited about getting the opportunity to go back to school! It’s for Polysomnography, even though you didn’t ask! I will still be playing DDO, but with less frequency than I have over the past few years. I was in at least three weekly play obligations for a long time. I had to drop out of those. The Damsels play time/ day might have to shift a bit after the New Year, but for now that is only an every other week obligation, and shouldn’t effect the current play schedule too much! 

The Cocktail Hour is another matter entirely. The day/ time we play had become very challenging for me. My family gives zero fucks about my play time. They want what they want, when they want it. As the “Mom”, I am required to actually interact with them when they ask. As Samius’ schedule has changed as well, this has presented a great deal of logistical difficulty for the CTH! Samius is trying to diversify his gaming portfolio, and make a full time gig out of Twitching. I think that is an amazing undertaking! I support him, and you should too! He also has another podcast he does that is Magic The Gathering based, and though I don’t understand any of it, it has a fair amount of traction! Go Samius! 

Being a part of this community for the last ten years has meant so much to me! I can’t imagine a world where I’m not playing DDO. So if the Cocktail Hour only posts a show every now and again, that’s ok! I just can’t play as much as I want to right now, but podcasting is something I have truly come to love. Thank you for listening, and thank you for loving the same game I do! 

xxooxx

Intro:

Cartoon crush

  • Gen Con!  
    • Ditched by Keith.  
    • Art!  
  • Vury excited!  CW shows come back!  Tom Felton, The Flash!  
  • Stranger Things
  • Star Wars!  Lando.  Donald Glover.  

 

DDO Stuff

  • We are level ten Sarlona, you can join us at level 7, or you can roll an iconic and leave the trainer, level yourself to ten and play with us!  We are third-lifers, so you will be able to keep up with us/ pike off our xp with minimal effort!  
    • Fridays at 12:30 cst on Sarlona.  We will be conquering the Temple of Elemental Evil again next time, because failure is NOT an option in CTH.  Type /joinchannel cthlive to get into the chat channel, and ping us to join the group! We run for a solid hour and sometimes a little more, but I will promise you all the XP I can until then!
  • Buddy Weekend!  5%?
  • Cannith crafting.  No flex shards, but I have an open mind.  
  • Javabot has out leveled the CTH Live group.  
  • Pure Zergbarian

Group Discussion:  

  • Twitch Etiquette.  
    • What’s right to say or not say in someone’s stream?  (i.e. don’t try to snipe players, I don’t want to know about your personal life, unless it’s D&D or gaming related.  I don’t need to know that your cat’s surgery came out ok.  
  • Shut up and take my money!  
    • What about other games? DDO is not the only one out there, I sometimes twitch Minecraft, I’m playing CIV V, I’ll be playing CIV VI when it comes out, I’ll be playing Mass Effect Andromeda next year, I play Pokemon Go like it’s my job.  I’m loving the walk etc, DDO I think will be around a long time, and I have no plans to unsub.  In fact, If there really is an expansion coming, one of the things I want is to get in early, and get any extra stuff they are offering!  
      • My question:  What is the “The thing” in DDO that will entice you to pre-order an expansion?  I like the statue idea!
