    Pineleaf, thanks for mentioning in the last episode that you don’t prefer dual wielding two swords. For a while there, I thought it was just me. But anyone who knows anything about melee combat knows how crazy that is. Anytime I play a champion I use a sword and knife, much more realistic and more practical in combat. When role-playing I love orcs, dragons, and all types of fantasy elements, but nothing breaks my immersion more than seeing someone swing two swords at once. Good to know I’m not the only one. (Exception to this entire rant: lightsabers. If the blade is actually a laser, then the saber is nearly weightless. In which case dual wielding is totally bad-ass.)

    Branick, sometimes I use the countdown app just to hear the hilariously random Pineleaf drops. Nice job on that.

    As always I appreciate the time you guys put into this podcast. Keep up the good work.

  2. I would imagine the existence of a skirmish camp in Brockenborings might be tied to the historical Battle of Greenfields. At one point, they may have had the need for skirmish vendors to inhabit the area, and I suppose they stuck around in case the need should ever again rise to take arms and whack a couple more goblin heads into rabbit-holes! Sure, it’s inconvenient, but it’s a good excuse to have one there.
