Show notes originally posted by Nevik

In this episode, the full cast is back to mourn the departure of our friends leaving for the mystical lands of anthropomorphic pandas. After a brief moment of silence (we’re kidding, we didn’t really) we get back on topic and discuss what we have been up to in-game: Breja’s new job allowed little time to play, Lanntonio has waffled once more and is back on his wizard, and [Cue triumphant trumpets] Jen downed Diablo with her barbarian and Nevik finally cleared Inferno!
