Having a bit of fun with the birthday party hats and the event! I haven't had much time to play it though. Tomorrow I plan on making a composite image of my characters in their respective hats.

If nothing else, each of my characters did get a +2 elixer of supreme ability from the egg hunt.

How to remain sane while slaying...

Assuming your sane to begin with, you might be in the level 8 to 13 range and looking at the Red Fens slaying and thinking 'how can I even get to 7500 slayer in a decent amount of time to make it not completely worthless?' And maybe you can't.

Or maybe you only have short snippets of time to play, where you couldn't finish a quest, but can get something done.

For me, I mostly listen to podcasts, and some of my favorite ones are 'Actual Play' (AP) RPG podcasts, where 'traditional' sit down role players record their game sessions.

The best of these is, where they have several hundreds of hours of actual play podcasts, ranging from 2E AD&D to 3e and 4e, retro clones like Castles and Crusades, actual old school like Empire of the Petal Throne, Rolemaster, and Indie as well. It's a great way to hear some traditional RPG in our favorite MMORPG.

A quick DDO Post.

If only My.DDO was updating correctly, this would appear with correct stats:

But it isn't, so you'll just have to trust that he is level 15 now and thinking of picking up a tower shield for more defense.

In other gaming news, I'll be DMing tomorrow, where the PCs bring the battle to the red dragon Khyrastryx.
