Comments on the Risia ice games this week and if you haven’t heard there is also some sad news. Next week will be my last DDOcast poetry corner and then once Skagtravaganza is done I am retiring from the DDO poetry business, the reason behind this is simply after a year I feel my inspiration is running dry and I need to recharge my creative batteries. Watch for news of my next project coming soon on this site.

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.

Anyway this weeks poem was a request from Steiner Davion for a poem about troglodytes with particular reference to their smell. So click the link to download my poem or follow the link to DDOcast in my sidebar to listen to the whole show.

This week my DDO poetry cast segment is about the show’s producer Anne Trent. She is a lady of many talents not the least of which is producing DDO cast and overhauling the DDO cast website and giving it a shiny new look.

My poem can be downloaded via the link below or if you would like to listen to the whole show follow the link in my sidebar to the DDO cast site. While you are there you can also listen to their excellent remix of my poem ” traps don’t kill players, Kobolds do. ”

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 ?

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.
