  1. Another awesome podcast guys. Thinking of transferring a character from Shadowlands to join your guild.

    Question: Have you guys read the Lensman Series?

  2. No, I have not read the Lensman series, but I have read others from that era. Quick look at the background looks like something I should definitely read. Wikipedia says, “It was a runner-up for the Hugo award for Best All-Time Series (the winner was the Foundation series by Isaac Asimov).” That’s pretty interesting and to compare it to Foundation is certainly high praise. The first in the series is on Audible, as well. Thanks!

  3. You’re very welcome. I’m on my 2nd read through now and it’s awesome. Someone who new Doc Smith told me that he didn’t finish it. It was intended to be 7 (or 10) books. But it’s still great. Hope you enjoy it! 🙂

  4. I love the podcast, and have especially enjoyed listening to the Magenta Crystal and HK-51 episodes. I only started playing in earnest around the time 2.3 was released, and as such, I have no lack of content that is “new” for me. I have discovered many quests and much content from both pre-2.0 and forward, but I feel that many things I don’t know about, the Magenta Crystal being a great example. I imagine when the series of steps to craft the crystal was discovered, it was big news in the community, but for me, I had seen mentions of it in forum posts or on reddit, but hadn’t realized it was as involved and as interesting as I learned from listening to your podcast.

    Anyway, I will of course listen to any episode you send my way via droid sacrifice, but I’d be very excited to hear about some of the older content, things that might be overlooked due to the focus on end-game content. A few examples that I’ve heard mentions of: rare drops of speeders and pets in flashpoints, Seeker droid and Macrobinocular quests, missions that reward titles and achievements, general achievements (hidden or otherwise). I imagine there are other good ones I can’t suggest because I don’t know about them!

    Thanks again for all the work on the podcast, and I look forward to more episodes, about new content or old.

    1. Thanks Mike, appreciate the comments. These are great suggestions and things like the Macrobinocular line are certainly on the list for a future show, perhaps soon. There is a lot of fun content out there that it would be a shame to miss!
