Travels with Troy #5
Mon, 26 May 2008 18:28:00 GMT [download/play]

This week Troy returns to the show, after a bout with pneumonia, and talks about the gods of Hyboria.  He then discusses the clans and guilds in his game Phantasm Adventures and how the structure of them correlates into a MMO.  Troy then muses about the goblin gamblers in the world of Everquest II and how he would like to see the payouts changed.  Troy has succumbed to play Age Of Conan, and he gives his first impression (By Crom! Troynan, the Cimmerian, Lives!).  Troy also talks briefly about his PC upgrades, and finally he gives us his account of Dual Boxing.

Show Highlights
*  Essential Conan: The Gods of Hyboria
TMOG: Phantasm Adventures, Clans & Guilds
*  Goblin Gamblers of Everquest II
*  Playing the Age of Conan

'My AoC Characters' by Shalimar616

I have two guys now in AoC, both young lads but aspiring for greatness. I am on Thog as Troynan the Barbarian; and I also have a Priest of Mitra on the Set server with the name of Dagathos.

I am looking for perhaps a couple of servers, with some friends; so if you have a guild or couple of friends on a server, let me know.

By Crom!!

I just discovered that my main character, Troynan is not on the Thog Server, but some other strangely named server that I can't even pronounce...something like Blodvistily or something like that.

Anyway, I am really trying to play on Set and Thog. So, I made a new guy for the Thog server named Troynar and he is a Conqueror -- I think I will like them better than the Barbarian since I am not so much a Rogue character in any other MMO.

I hope the Conqueror will be more ass-kicking and less skulking around -- though I admit that Barbarian did seem quite bloodthirsty.

So, I must have had a grey/blond moment there when I first made Troynan and put him on the wrong server -- GAH!!

I like how games are released unfinished nowadays and we are expected to pay for them while they are fixed.

Cmon MMO industry wake up!

'Back From Vacation' by Shalimar616

Hey All,

I have been on vacation for the last week and have not had the chance to work on a show. Now that I have access to a computer, I will remedy that situation -- yes, its hard to believe that I was away from a computer for an entire week.

The wilds of Michigan survived my pacing, and I survived without my trustee computer pal.

See everyone soon with a new show!
