Yes, that was necessary. Not only am I, for some reason, afraid, well, I say afraid, voice chat (vent, skype, phones, you name it) makes me nervous. Don’t know why, I’m fine with people I know, but the idea of quite a few people listening to me flailing about makes me a tad nervous. Not only this, but my sound card seems a bit fucked on the level of output. I can listen to music, watch videos, all that stuff just fine, but I can’t speak. If I speak, you can barely hear me, and if I use microphone boost there is loud screeching in my ears and nobody wants that. So, by the time I realised the problem wasn’t with my headset but my pc, there was only about 45 minutes left until I’d promised I’d head over for a recording, had to steal Dan’s pc (sorry Dan!). Anyway, my point being, I probably won’t be on any more podcasts for a long long time, but it was fun to chat to somebody I know, haven’t been able to do that in a long time.
It’s spoiler safe, we go into mechanics a little bit, but lore, quests, and so on we don’t touch on. If you’d like to check it out, hop over to Gazimoff’s blog, the Mana Obscura. Enjoy!
