    Curse you for making us wait another week, and this episode was short too.

      Sorry if you felt the show was too short. That is the nice thing about new media, each show is exactly as long as it needs to be, without having to conform to some idea that a show must fit within the confines of a set broadcast window. Keep listening, next week is going to be amazing.

    Was it just me or the audio just terrible. I’m sure Steven worked hard to clean it up but still every hard to listen to and enjoy.

    Also was a bit surprised Spud didn’t cash in his move action for another minor action to get one more crush in on Orem. Granted that wouldn’t have been much fun, but it does seem odd to single out a character that much and then not to finish him off when you have the chance.

      Audio seemed fine to me.

      Also, while Spud was not the only one who missed an action that episode – I believe Matthew did during his turn as well – sometimes what’s optimal in combat has to give way to the DM not wanting to be a total buzzkill and kill off someone’s character. In any case, once you have a character ‘down’ (but not dead), it makes tactical sense to go for someone else. Less hostiles on the field, after all.

      Looking forward to next week!

        I don’t honestly disagree with Rodigo’s choice not to kill Orem out right. Only pointing out that he could have and if he was being true to how Spud was acting at that moment maybe should have. All months pasted by now so doesn’t much matter just fun to talk about.

      The audio sounds fine here… perhaps it is you?

        Maybe, the hmm I was hearing was just was just like one you had on Dueling Reviewing. I will reframe from reporting issues in the future because you tone suggest its unwelcome

    And Spud STILL isn’t bloodied.

    Oh please, please let every one but Orem wake up to find Orem dead. Wizards in 4e are practically useless anyway. Especially when compared to the almighty 4e fighter.

      Seems like an odd request, given that Orem’s our central character and our hero…

        I kid, Orem’s great.
