DDOCast Twitches Permadeath

I am excited to announce a new addition to the normal DDOCast Podcast routine!  This past week I started playing permadeath and twitching that play live.  I hope to provide not only some semi-almost-quality entertainment, but highlight the permadeath community and playstyle, and have some fun experiencing the rigors of having almost nothing to support a character (no really, i had to start on snowy side korthos and with a 28 point build!).  To add in the entertainment value I am playing with lessah and the Sublime Permadeath Guild on Thelanis.  If you would also like to join in the fun, look into joining that permadeath group!

Still dont find these videos entertaining?  well you can always place bets on where I die and suggest my next build or quest (i reserve the right to choose for myself).

Timing for this may or may not be consistent, but i hope to achieve something resembling regular.

You can watch live at http://www.twitch.tv/ddocast

Also: i need 2 things from the community!
1) i need a clever name for the series.  Currently the working title is Operation Cannon Fodder.  If you suggest a name and I choose it, I’ll return the kindness with a 500 TP code!

2) I like title screens – and pictures of soul stones seem appropriate!  So post pictures with prominately featured soul stones here or send them to me by email (ddocast@gmail.com) and if i use your picture, ill send you a 500 TP code (while supplies last – at which time I will give out other prizes).  Please include your name (in game or real) and server so i can give you proper credit!

EDIT: I greatly prefer screenshots without UI clutter but this does not necessarily prevent you from winning.
