Here’s a LINK to the secret letter released to Stormreach Action News in this week’s contest segment.

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 date 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 get1500Turbine 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 upon the following Mondays as individual files for people to download/listen to as well.

Good Luck!

*European Server players who wish to have their Turbine Point winnings exchanged for a game time card will be able to do so. The intent is not to take players away from any particular server or service, but for simple logistic reasons. The exchange offer is for European server players only, as I don’t have the money for U.S. game time cards as well. The use of the emote /kneel while targeting the proper person is to deal with any situations in which multiple players show up at once. In that case, the first /emote listed in the social panel will be used to determine the winner.
