So what's your excuse this week for not playing?

Pilfro has more excuses than this guy when it comes to game-time. Last night was "yardwork at night" and today the "cable is out with a loop error".
Later on I am sure I will hear "See!! You are level 5 and I am only level 2.. ErrrWaaaaaa-errWaaaaaa"
Call the Waambulence.

DDO just got better...

This weekend we ran Kobold Assault quest in DDO. It transports you far outside of town to some huge gate. Once the gate is opened, the kobolds start to pour in. You have to kill 200 of them!! No easy task, but with the right crew it is doable. Before opening the gate, I admitted to Pilfro (Feathor at the time) that I was a little nervous. The game portrayed an "impending doom" sort of vibe very well. I felt like I was at the outer walls of defense (and think I actually was). For a guy that has waited for 10 years for this, it was a great moment.
Buy DDO now!! Won't regret it. Oh, and no I don't work for them :-p

Can't we just play Knobs instead?

Hello all, Here is Toon #2 for everyone keeping score at home. This simple yet classic prank came up in conversation recently, so we decided to revisit the pain.

So it has been a few weeks with my newly purchased DDO. I now have a 2nd level Rogue (Finious) and a 1st level Pally (Tanaka). The great thing about this game is that each class is necessary for each quest.
I ran the same quests that I already ran through with the Rogue and had a completely different experience with the Pally. Both times it was freakin' great. I hooked up with a PUG and they were great...come to think about it, every PUG I ran with thus far has been great. The players in this game take it very serious. So many times I have been the guy looking for the quest-giver while the rest of the group is already in the dungeon. Sure enough, one of them comes out to get me and show me where to get the quest without complaining or bitching at all. It is such a nice change from WoW for me.
I was part of the "Stress Test" a few months ago and came away with a bad taste in my mouth...think my quote was "It is very much like Elder Scrolls with a hint of Tomb Raider3". I decided not to purchase it... this was before the free 7 day trial. Hey, if they want to let me play for free, cool. Sure enough, after my 7 day trial, I found myself really looking forward to playing. Keeping in mind that I have been playing PnP D+D for about 25 years, so I was very very critical of this so called D+D Online. After 2 weeks of playing, I think this game is better than WoW... which is a bold F'in statement because WoW is a great game (played it for almost 1yr). That's right, you heard me... DDO is better than WoW. Play the 7 day trial and make your own decision. How could you not enjoy dungeon adventure with traps, puzzles, and gore... oh my.

Scamo out.

(P.S. I will be posting the NEXT toon to correspond to this post. So start hyperventilating in excitement! -Oats)
