Contest Details:

Over the next few weeks I’ll be doing a series of sketches and offering up some prizes for people who solve the puzzle!  This contest will be open to anyone except for DDOcast contributors, and will require that you download the U.S. client for Dungeons and Dragons Online.  Otherwise, be the first person to use the emote /kneel in front of the person whose name will be revealed, on the right server and at the right time and you’ll win this:

Also,1500 Turbine Points.  Neat, huh?  A real collectors item.

The second person to type /kneel in front of the person will get 1500Turbine Points.  Third person to do this will get 1000 TP.  The first puzzle will be broadcast in next week’s show, Episode 168, and will probably continue for the following two weeks.  I’ll post them up on the following Mondays as individual files for people to download/listen to as well.

Good Luck!
