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.

Arraetrikos


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!

  • We have a YouTube Channel!  You can subscribe and maybe even listen to shows, who knows!  It’s a brave new world!  I have no subscribers, you can change that!
  • We are doing Epic Three Barrel Cove next!  Official Twitch date November 25th 11pm Pacific Time!  You can listen Live via Mixlr(Thanks very much to the DDO Players News for introducing me to this app, I LOVE it!)
