The Lore Hounds returned to Stormreach in full force last week, tackling not one, not two but three dungeons for Episode 6. After assaulting the Waterworks, the crew decided to try their hand at the casinos thanks to a quest from The Leaky Dinghy. With skulls cracked and winnings collected, we moved on to another quest chain. Many, many objects were destroyed in the making of “For Baudry’s Booty!.”
Episode 7 will happen, but when it will happen remains a mystery. iTZKooPA will be unavailable to run the community event for the next three weeks due to E3 coverage and a long overdue vacation. Nevertheless, the Lore Hounds plan on continuing the tradition. We’ll have updated information as Sunday(s) rolls around.
In the mean time, please complete the tutorial questline of Korthos Island (final adventure detailed here), otherwise you will not be eligible for a group invite. Level 3 is recommended, and as always, the deed will take place on the Khyber server.
The daring Lore Hounds will be back inside Turbine’s free-to-play MMORPG (no, not that one) for Instance Gratification: DDO Episode 6 on Sunday, June 6 at 11:00 AM 12:00 PM (noon) EST. Khyber is the server of choice. Please be sure to complete the tutorial area and dungeon before go time. That means you should have at least arrived at the Harbor of Stormreach. Level 3 would be appreciated, while level 4 is recommended. We’re going to attempt to complete Waterworks, then venture to a new area.
Due to myself having outside obligations, the group has taken a bit of a hiatus. In fact, it’s likely to continue after Episode 6, because I’ll be busy representing the Lore Hounds at E3 2010! Be sure to jump in before the summer break.
Shoot me a tweet or drop a comment in the post if you want to be in the top six. I currently have a warforged cleric (iTZKooPA) and a halfling bard (iTZKHuPA). Supplies of DDO Point cards are nearly gone, but still available to those that attend!
I forgot to re-install DDO since replacing my boot drive. The start time has been pushed back an hour to accommodate downloading and installing.
Due to some technical difficulties two weekends ago, last weekend’s Episode 6 has been bumped up to Episode 5. This week sees the Lore Hounds heading into the early parts of Waterworks, once again meeting up with some angry kobolds. A smaller group of hounds meeting the Gnashtooth Clan, an angrier and more strategic group of kobolds, caused some fails. To say the least.
Episode 6 will happen (again) on Sunday, May 23 and is currently scheduled for an 11:00 AM EST start time on the Khyber server. Please complete the tutorial questline of Korthos Island (final adventure detailed here), otherwise you will not be eligible for a group invite.
Prospective attendees should drop a line below so we can gauge the expected attendance. Include your class if you’ve already decided upon one. I will not be in attendance. Look for Amatera on halfling rogue named Amatera or Juggynaut for an invite.
[Ed. Note - Gnarltooth Clan is mentioned in the video. The squad actually fought the Gnashtooth clan]
