First of all please take the time to admire the new DDOcast logo designed by the very talented  Drew Pocza, I love it and look forward to proudly wearing it on my chest soon.

This may seem a bit strange but this weeks poem sees me moan on about how recently playing DDO has been doing my head in. Strange words you may think for a poet who does DDO related poetry on a DDO podcast but let me explain. Too much of something you love can easily make the love turn to hate, it’s not rocket science. I wouldn’t say I hate DDO but sometimes you need to cut your playing time down to once a week just to purge your system then when you realise you are missing it start the overkill again ! Now if only I could take the same approach to beer and cake ?

I don’t normally post on a Bank holiday but


Yesterday morning to save my sanity from children’s tv I got my smart phone out and experimented with writing some DDo type poems but constraining myself by using twitter. Here are the results.

The Itchy bug bear

Bug bear bed bugs bug bug bear. But bug bear bear bed bugs as bug bear lazy.

The angry half orc

Half orc,half mad,half pint,half full,but charged full price. Half orc,half heartedly,half shrug then chug anyway.

The bold Kobold.

Kobold,no bold,but yark gold. Now kobold bold, yark ,gold kobold’s !

This weeks excellent show sees me in my segment waffle on about spouse aggro , if you click the link below you can hear what I have to say on the subject. Interestingly the poem went through a major change before I was happy with it, it was originally called “Doghouse,” and went something like this.

I should be mowing the lawn,
Instead I’m mowing down Kobolds.
I should be looking for a cheap holiday,
Instead I’m looking for a cheap vorpal.
I should Be trying to understand my daughter’s homework,
Instead I’m trying to understand crafting.
I should be running a bath,
Instead I’m running waterworks.
I should be trying to find my keys,
Instead I’m trying to find a bloodstone.
I should By organising my poem ideas,
Instead I’m organising my inventory.
I should be spending time in DDO,
Instead I’m spending time in the doghouse.

Another idea for this poem was to have Mrs Skaggy read alternate lines, but as I did a mental read through something didn’t quite work so it mutated into the spouse aggro poem I read out.

Inspired by a series of adventures set in an area called the red fens and the fact that during these larks you end up fighting underwater I decided to do an underwater poem. ( As I am fond of saying, it’s not rocket science.) Click the link below to download and listen to it or follow the link in my sidebar to DDOcast’s site to download the entire podcast.
