Episode 101 – I’ve Got a Big … Bragomancer

Show notes originally posted by Nevik

In our 101th episode we are back for another grand ol’ time with lots of frivolity and cheer. We then get down to business and discuss what we’ve been up to: Nevik cleared a GR60 solo, Lanntonio has been reacquainting himself with Diablo I, and Breja is Mr. Gloomy Psychopants.

In this episode:

  • We read, and respond to an email from Guerilla Law. Listener participation has been absolutely amazing and is primarily why we do this show, so keep them coming! We WILL get to all the emails we receive, even if occasionally we have to push a few to the next episode. Send in your stories of RNGesus triumph to Show@ShatteredSoulstone.com!
  • What under-used class skill would you build a set around? We carried over our Question of the Show from last week and asked for more of your ideas on Twitter on what sets you would create. Be sure to follow the show account, @ShatteredStone, on Twitter for future Questions of the Show.
  • Jen is back with her 5th installment of Jen’s Lore Corner. For this episode she covers the lesser evil Duriel and discusses some of the potential discrepancies in regards to whether he is the “twin” of the lesser evil Andariel.
  • Blizzard finalized the panel schedule for Blizzcon 2015 and officially released it for us to peruse. There is still only one panel on one of the main stages and we discuss what this, the small presence on the show floor, and the four Fireside gatherings being held on the smaller (non-televised) stages means for the future of Diablo III.

Other Entertainment/Games:

  • First off, we’re sorry. We did not hold back on our Fear the Walking Dead discussion. We took a very deep dive and talked about almost every aspect of episode 5, but it was necessary to fully explore our feelings and come out the other side more positive than going in.
  • Fan of musicals? Breja and familia do and recently started watching Glee and they are really enjoying it.
  • The Amazing Race is back and is always entertaining. Be sure to catch this show Friday nights on CBS.

After catching up with Breja and Jen we get straight to business and talk about what we’ve been up to: Jen finished the first chapter of the Season Journey, Breja is feeling the power creep, and Nevik had to rebuild his monk aftering RIP’ng in a GR45.

  • Can’t get enough zombies? Wyrmwood: Road of the Dead is HIGHLY entertaining … and apparently stars Nevik? WARNING: The trailer does half-way spoil some things, but honestly it’s better to go in without watching the trailer.

  • And if that’s not enough to sate your zombie appetite, be sure to check out Dead Fans Talking – a Walking Dead podcast – with Mick Montgomery, Wendy Maybury, and Jarret LeMaster.
  • Nevik loves Sci-fi and horror and what could be better than a sci-fi horror movie? If you also love this genre Infini might just be worth watching.
