iTunes Reviews

(The Fabled “LOST” iTunes Review we talked about last week!

Jerry Snook left a Five Star Review Titled Great Podcast, Well Produced, Great DDO Resource


These two walked into the establishment smelling like dead kobold, although around here that’s not saying much. Certainly didn’t smell worse than most folk, and a right better that a’many I deal with everyday. They were talking about their early adventures, and sounded like decent folk, at least for around here. A bit light on coin, but they didn’t knock anything over or punch someone in the face, so there’s that. overall if these two walk into your tavern, you can expect a nice sort, and no trouble (that I saw anyway!)

Comments on DDO Players News Episode 26 : A Chat With Cordovan Part Duex


Jerry Snook AKA Cordovan

Just a quick correction that Mike Pence was a Congressman, not State Senator.



Cool show, keep up the good work. Gotta make a halfling to make it into Halfling summer games 🙂


A Few Random Comments From The DDO Players 500 Point Turbine Points Give Away!




Great show, I really love how you guys are so cheerful and new to the game.

BTW since you have done the lower level dungeons like korthos and harbor, have you found yourself zerging like a pro? Also, I really remember when I was in a group of vets and they moved through a quest like a wolf pack, it was exhilarating. Patrick of DDO cast has several min max players and it would be fun to see if you could group with them see how you feel when paired up with serious vets. Just an idea. Keep up the good work. Also, How long have you been playing LOTRO?



I’m in, of course. 500 points, like a good buy would be the Temple, eh? 🙂



I do really enjoy the podcast, although I usually listen through youtube so haven’t been to the site before 😀


Digital Terror

Turbine points are a wondrous thing, they buy for you lots of bling, and what I love about this most, is the chance to win with a simple post!
