Revenge of the Bard!

Once upon a time, in a land far away, (Well, January 2015 on Argonessen), the Damsels of DDO invited me to run amok in the Stormhorns with them. I played a Dwarf Bard character at the time, and the Damsels Bard-Shamed me. They wanted real

As If We Wouldn’t Zerg!

The Moosey and Bew Show premiered on twitch.tv/DDOStream on May 2, 2015. Mooseypants, BonnieBew, and an assortment of guildies and friends played Turbine’s MMORPG Dungeons & Dragons Online on Cannith and Khyber servers. For people who just can’t sit through the original 7-hour stream (I’m

The Moosey And Bew Show!

I took a break from broadcasting on DDOStream once Shroudpalooza was over because I needed lots of naps and juice. Having failed miserably at relaxing, this time I rethought my Twitch streaming strategy. After all, it’s dangerous to go alone! Better take a moose! If

Shroudpalooza – Wayfinder Videos!

You can see the unedited version of Wayfinder’s Shroudpalooza from December 13th, 2014 at twitch.tv/ddostream, but I’ve split it out into three parts with what I like to call the ‘betterer bits’ and put them onto YouTube. And by ‘betterer,’ I mean I’ve tried to

Revenge of the Bard!

Once upon a time, in a land far away, (Well, January 2015 on Argonessen), the Damsels of DDO invited me to run amok in the Stormhorns with them. I played a Dwarf Bard character at the time, and the Damsels Bard-Shamed me. They wanted real buff songs, and an awkward rendition of the Oscar Meyer Baloney theme wasn’t going to cut it!

We only made it halfway through the Stormhorns quests, so I came back for a second helping of DofDDO to finish them off. (The quests, not the Damsels.) I had two weeks to get my act together and prove I had more Bard game than one of those dudes pretending they’re a statue in the Hall of Heroes. Challenge accepted!

The goal? Record a song themed after each of the Damsels – Mythery, Sabha Jade, and Lessah – with as much bravado as I could muster, even if it had been a decade since I’d twaddled with my “music stuff.” I laughed so hard just thinking about it, much less listening to mixed results, it was totally worth the effort.

The song I wrote for Lessah at the time was “Cocktail Hour Blues.” (You can hear it as they close out DDO Cocktail Hour episode 81, which I somehow ended up in as a guest.) It wasn’t the only idea I had, but it was the only one that was nice enough to escape my Grimoire of Questionable Ideas and become an actual musical thing.

This week I guested on the DDO Players 48th podcast. Leading up to the show, Draculetta innocently asked if there was anything I wanted to cover during the cast. Uh-oh… I hadn’t been doing anything, no Twitching, not a lot of DDO game time…

So I pulled out one of those other Lessah song ideas and kicked it around. For better or worse, I’ve added it to my YouTube channel.
