Episode 17 – Take Three!

Apparently you can only attach 1 media file per post in the RSS2 feed, and since the Infected PDF was the second thing I attached it took over.. Just like Sigler, I tell ya!!

So, here is the actual podcast episode… again.. I tried once before and it didn’t seem to take. So I just renamed the file, and we’ll see what happens!


Episode is a bit late… but there was an injury involved, so please don’t debuff us 🙂
This episode is part one of a two part interview with a friend of ours dedicated to villains!

We discuss:

  • Viv’s on drugs
  • News [more complete show notes on actual news items to come]
  • Bab’s sig file link
  • New Gallery software on !
  • New Listener Forums !
  • Go buy Scott Sigler’s Infected on April 1st! Oh, and in case you don’t know if you’d like it, Scott is letting us attach a free PDF version to this episode!! That’s right, the ENTIRE Novel in no-DRM PDF form is in the feed. However, this is a “3 day only” deal, so I will be removing the PDF from the feed on April 1st.
  • New feedback phone number (the old one got disconnected because nobody called in 30 days 🙁
  • Interview with Rich
    • What draws Rich to the Rogue Isles
    • CoV contacts strategy
    • Differences between COH and COV
    • Task Forces/Strike Forces
    • Level restricted zones
    • Giant Monsters
    • The villain Archetypes
    • Feelings on the announced villain epic archetypes

I was very glad to have found your podcast. I downloaded all of the episodes and have just finished listening to them. You do a wonderful job with your podcast and are a delight to listen to. I am learning a lot from listening. I’ve played for a year and have a 50 level energy/energy blaster (Wildfire 66) and a 560 level emp/sonic healer (Sonic Solace) on Champion server. After to listening to you I decided to start a illusion/rad controller.

Keep up the good work. I’ve subscribed to you now (and written a review on Itunes) so I can hardly wait to here from you. Good Hunting.


I forgot something I wanted to ask. Would you talk about invention set enhancements like Freebird and such? What are your opinions on them? I kinda went nuts with them on my level 50s because of all the different buffs and such you get from them.

So, um…does this make this “bedcast” Three Times the Victor? I mean, it’s survived THREE different incarnations…lol


Hey hey, still back tracking with the podcasts and just wanted to mention something about the VEATs.
Rich mentioned that the VEATs would fit in well with the villains being referred to as Destined Ones and it does but in a different way then was speculated: It seems that as a VEAT you are one of Arachnos’ henchmen and long to become a destined one like the other ATs. So your first mission is to “Alter the Destined One List” to put your name on it so you can be a Destined one as well which I think is more interesting than just being a prison break out. Sorry if this has been covered, like I said before, I’m a late comer and am now catching up. Awesome podcast, it was cool to hear some opinions from a villain-sider since I play Heroes primarily… although he did strike a nerve when he did the “take that, heroes!” after he said that villains actually got 4 VEATs that are better than Hero EATs. That discussion brings the worst out of me heh….
