Voyages of Vanguard #50

(*Warning*: There are some references to "Adult Beverages" on the show. No cursing, but references to "par**ing" and "b**r", as well as being "tr**hed". Tell the kids to leave the room. *Warning*)

Make sure to go to www.voyagesofvanguard.com read our blogs and articles!

The highlights from show 50:

We had such a blast recording this LIVE show..here's a lil backstory:
 
 Luper: Hey Beau, let's do that live recording, again. This time just audio though.
 Beau: Good idea, Luper!
 Luper: Ok, let's start it early, to work out all kinks.
 Beau: Roger!
 *starts Skype*
 Beau: Hmm, I can't bring up the menu to moderate the room! That means that anyone can get in and talk on the mic!
 Luper: Hmm, don't worry, calm down noob. I'll just host my own room, and we'll see if I can moderate it.
 Beau: Oh my god I'm getting so mad I might throw up.
 Luper: Calm it down. Ok look, it works! I can moderate it!
 Beau: Ok, did you set it to take away the ability to talk from all guests?
 Luper: Ah, crud, I missed that I think.
 Beau: Don't worry, during the show, you won't be distracted by annoying kids trying to come into the room over and over. I mean, they call it griefing, but it'll be easy to keep up with it..I'll just be sassy and drink! But you, you have to not only keep an eye on all the griefers, but you have to talk as well! Don't forget to say things!
 Luper: Yeh, it'll be easy, AND fun!

 *starts to record show*

 Beau: Man, this is FUN!! *bbrraaappppp!!!!!*
 Luper: They're everywhere!! They won't stop coming in!!
 Beau: So, Luper, what did you do in game this week?

 We introduce some branches of the VoV tree on this show, talk to our fav's Faeren and Jute, and play the new theme song written by Faeren! IT ROCKS! HERE are the lyrics!
 
Next week we will talk about Harassment in game and what to do about it, and Luper will be talking about some subjects of her choice!
 
 Fun Trivia: Karen actually said "goodbye" earlier in the recording, but I put it at the end of the show to make a little more sense. No, she didn't sit there say nothing the entire show!

 Fun Links: Go to vgwalkthroughs to see the Pawz the Bear video, the un-official VG video that everyone raved about, and  OUR THEME SONG WITH LYRICS!!

Episode 50 Discussion Thread

'Good to hear from tenured gamers.' by Nosferum
Submitted on 2008-07-28 16:59:36 CST
-I find discussion from more tenured gamers to be a bit more even-handed and inclusive. Jute impressed me.

-Oh yeah. Stop picking on Luper for her lingo, Beau. It doesn't sound like you're joking, so if you intend on it as a running joke, make sure it comes across as pure jest. As it stands, it's always sounded like you're dismissive. That didn't happen in this episode, clearly, but it's been on my mind for a while.



'Came home from work and what did I find...' by Checksix
Submitted on 2008-07-28 18:07:20 CST
andother cool podcast!

Thanks for all the hard work you two!

Jute, you're uber cool! I hope they keep you!

I didn't hear much from the other podcaster...Faeren. But I did check out the video on vgwalkthroughs and I gotta say NICE, DUDE!

The pod-theme kicks arse too!




'You'll have to clarify for me..' by Beauturkey
Submitted on 2008-07-28 18:11:18 CST
...which lingo? *trying to think*

Between sleeping, playing, editing and listening to this thing literally like, 7 times, I cannot remember what you are talking about. Can't say I *didn't* do that, just can't remember right now.

You don't need to defend Luper against Beau. C'mon now. She knows good and well she can tell him to shut up whenever she needs to. She has my permission. =)




'Enjoyable' by Seritaph
Submitted on 2008-07-29 18:47:32 CST
I'm not one to heavily criticize, because after all it's your show, but your editing of this show leaves a little to be desired. One minute you're talking about Luper's PVP Cleric and then the conversation suddenly twists to Jute and Lineage ][.

Other than that, thanks for the gooey goodness!



'Congrats.' by Dathmar
Submitted on 2008-07-30 05:38:12 CST
Congratulations on 50 shows (Also part grats to Troy and Karen)
Always enjoy the shows....I think its in part to Beau's sense of humour...its actually quite "Britsh" - if you listen hard Beau has a very sharp wit.
I also think the show notes are among the best I have seen - where do you find those pictures Beau ?...the highlight pictures always make me laugh or cringe.



'Congratz Beau!' by Belepheriel
Submitted on 2008-07-30 15:40:52 CST
Congratz Beauturkey on Player of the Year! Also, I loved hearing Jaye (fellow Ranger) once again on VoV. I hope she plans to come back soon. Jute; great addition to the show. Rikoo, Luper and Jute should group up, do a dungeon crawl and then talk about in a podcast. Good idea, bad idea? Discuss!! :-)

The show felt a little jumbled though but it seemed like you were having a good time XD

How did FFXI come up in a PvP dicussion, like Luper said it's different, mainly it's almost pure PvE. The grind is not that different from other MMO's now too, but you need a group you can't do anything alone, and there's no quest grind at all....

Canadian beer pwns all American beer. The End. ^_^ Especially something like Alexander Keith's.

A)The show felt a little jumbled though but it seemed like you were having a good time XD

Yes, yes it did. And yes, yes we were!

B) How did FFXI come up in a PvP dicussion, like Luper said it's different, mainly it's almost pure PvE. The grind is not that different from other MMO's now too, but you need a group you can't do anything alone, and there's no quest grind at all....

I was comparing the death penalty of Lineage to FFXI...in both you can de-level. And, in my opinion, FFXI is probably the grindiest of the grindy grind games I ever ground. (Grinded? Grounded?) I LOVED FFXI besides that...the look, how it felt sometimes. But it was so depressing to work so hard (because there is no quest XP) and to be punished with a de-level. I just don't like being punished by my game! lol

C)Canadian beer pwns all American beer. The End. ^_^ Especially something like Alexander Keith's.

Well, I am going to make a bet: AK's is not "cheap beer." I bet it's one of the medium priced beers in Canada. I have a friend that orders an "expensive beer" every time we play a show. She will try them and taste them..it's just beer, to me. And the last thing I am going to do is excuse a 10 dollar drunk that I could get for 4 bucks.

Don't get me wrong, it does sound good! :)

Hi Luper,
Where can I find a link to pictures of the guild hall you were talking about in the podcast? I am really interested in all the home decorating stuff you are working on. I have worked for Pier 1 Imports for 20 years so "It's my thang". I can't wait to get my house and show it off.

Fun show and your guests were great as well. Cya in game

Hi guys!!
Great 50th show I dont post much but have been listening to VoV since episode 1.When I listened to the first podcast with Troy I thought HoHum not exactly my thing.Then after a few episodes I really started liking it.I met Troy at Fanfaire last year and thought he was pretty cool and I was sorry to see him leave.I must admit though you guys brought the show to a new level with Beau & Luper. I love the dev interviews and I like the new segment with Jute interviewing players.I wish I could make fanfaire this year and meet you all but Unfortunatly I have prior commitmets this year,But you all will have a great time.Anyway keep up the great work!!

Interior Decorators of Telon can be found on the Voyages of Vanguard web page at www.voyagesofvanguard.com. Go to the I.D.o.T link on the right hand side. =) I hope you enjoy. There will be more added as they go.

I am also doing a few more right ups on how to make a house/guild hall and what not. Just trying to gather all the information.

Thanks for listening, and I know Beau and I will continue to make the shows better as we go!




'Congratz and stuff, gang!' by Mashidin
Submitted on 2008-08-04 08:32:35 CST
Congradulations on number 50 Beau and Luper! I was sad I missed the live deally because of my lame Internets but it was comforting to know that all involved had a great time.

As far as the podcast getting better? Well I think its just entertaining as hell but if you look at the other single game-focused casts out there that have lasted and only gotten more interesting and rich, such as Yivvits and Mr. Bubble, DDOcast, the Instance, Guildcast (RIP), and you will see a singular factor. That factor is that the hosts stayed enthusiastic, engaged the community, shared their time, and just played the damn game.

It seems to me that you two have all those qualities and have done all those things. Just keep that up and while you aren't looking, you're postcast, Im certain, will kick rock n roll ass. But then again, I'm just a Kung Fu Raki. What do I know. 50!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! WHOOOHOOOO! * Mashi smashes a Milwakee's Best can on his head*

'Dragon Lore?' by Nostrus
Submitted on 2008-08-07 16:32:14 CST
Great job on the latest podcast! I know many of the Vanguard players love hearing about the growing lore content. One item of lore that wasn't really touched on in this podcast are the Dragons of Telon. In the late stages of beta and early release time it seemed that Vanguard and Dragons went hand in hand, there were the flying wyvrn mounts, random Videos surfacing of Mt. Stirhad, and a few dragon bosses seen randomly around the world before launch. After launch the mounts were on hold, Mt Stirhad was blocked off, and the dragons I had seen in beta had vanished from the world. Now we have APW with Kotosoth and the overland boss Dresla, but IMO that is no nearly enough! I would love to see much more dragon lore start popping back up in game and I am very curious if future updates/expansions/events will bring back the presence of Dragons to Telon.
