Deadlock/Quijonn Sent A Message To Drac On The Forums!

Random message to say ola. O’ve taken on a couple of fairly huge products at work so been busy for the past while, but been catching up with the DDO Players webcasts while sitting in various hotels around Europe

On the DDO front, The Monday Marauders have TR’d and are back to lvl 8 at the moment, on Ghallanda (couple of the Marauders had to drop out for personal work/life reasons, so we’ve 2 spare spots on Ghallanda starting at 7pm UK time on a Monday night – ping Olgeirdottir for an invite!). We’re re-running the Stormreach Campaign and recording the extra XP from the Monster Manual volumes added since the hardback was printed I’ll update the PDF download when we’re done and hopefully have some time to write up some more on the Stormreach Campaign blog when time allows.


But enough about us Ghallanda-ites.

For the record, Steve Jackson and Ian Livingston are absolute legends – I was in my early teens when these came out and they turned a whole generation onto Fantasy RPG’s Any accusations that I would keep my finger in the page I was on before checking out the result of my decision will be vigorously defended. Those guys are up there with Dave Morris and Oliver Johnson who came out with Dragon Warriors (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dragon_Warriors) which was another British cheapish fantasy RPG system which was my introduction to redbox D&D

Looking forward to 100th episode Keep up the good work man and say howdy to Pineleaf.
