    Thanks! I only wish we had brought some extra folks on, as your input is always helpful, but we had a busy few days since we found out the subject of the episode. Just means we’ll have to invite you later!

    Thanks for the episode - it certainly got me thinking about balancing combat encounters. I agree that simply increasing the number of foes the PCs face, even weak ones, directly increases difficulty due to the amount of actions and stunts they can generate. I also ruefully accept that a single boss fight in DA requires much planning - as you recommend, boosting actions or stunts is required, though an easier option is to add a few minions.

    I wonder - have you ever flirted with using 'critter' type DA2 foes, who just take a hit or two to take down? How would you deal with a large number of critter type enemies - ghasts, for example? Could the cave beetle swarm idea be modified?

    I look forward to the next episode!

    Ha! I'm not sure the Fereldens would view the Avvar or the Chasind as their countrymen - you might be better off calling the episode 'Blood of the Alamarri', methinks

    I think I'll plump with my vote for the Avvar though - I have a soft spot for them since 'Jaws of Hakkon' in DA: Inquisition and the way a plotline was crafted in from our own pen-and paper game.

    I look forward to listening!

    Winter is truly coming with the Avvar background! We will talk about this endlessly fascinating culture on the 18th!
