From Sallie on DDO Players News Episode 149 – The Dreaded Ham-Mimic!

Great podcast as always, awww when you mentioned that Sev replied to a forum thread complaining about mimics I realized that was my thread! Woot, it’s weird to think ya’ll saw my thread hehe.

Helllloooo Drac and Pineleaf,

It’s in the distance, you can almost smell it.  Mists of Ravenloft!

I love good-natured tinfoil hatting.  The U36 Patch 3 Lamania Preview has me mesmerized.  I am going to assume we are going to follow the normal Daybreak (publisher) model for older MMO expansion packages.  You can see the expansion bundles forming and it’s looking good.

  1.  Aasimar race — included an ALL expansion bundles AND free to VIP (good move)
  2.  Vistani Knife Fighter tree — Part of the deluxe?  Ultimate?  Super Spooky Special Bundle? … AND earnable via Ravenloft favor (fair move)
  3.  Gold Seal Scarecrow Hirelings — Part of a deluxe bundle(s) as is customary

4a.  One Cosmetic and One Pet — deluxe  bundle

4b.  Two Cosmetics and Two Pets — Strahd’s Bestie bundle

What do you think?  I’m starting to get excited.  Can you smell what SSG is cooking?

Best wishes,


Villiage Idiot

P.S.  What’s with the very dangerous Amazon Picks on the website?!  My wallet is crying.
