Active Podcasts!!

Erdrique, Feb 7, 15 11:04 PM.
The majority of the DDO Podcasts have been quite active over this past week.  First off, the latest DDOCast did question and answer session of the DDO Development team which focused primarily on the creation of loot.  Then the DDO Cocktail Hour knocked out two podcasts, one with Lessah and her permadeath guildies, and the a regular one where Lessah and Samius discuss monster champions.  And then the DDO Players News released a new episode.  I also noted that the DDO Damsels put out a new podcast this week as well.  So a lot going on there!! 

Not to mention all of the movement on the TwitchTV and YouTube channels!!
