+Franklin Morrison So what would you craft instead of Arcane Nullifier and Defender of Argus?

(Like we mention on the show, Dr Boom is good for crafting and drafting, but we didn't want to double-list cards)

I'm talking about some of my favorite races to punch -- orcs, goblins, and ogres -- with the +EverQuest Next lore team today.

What are your favorite characteristics, personalities, or aspects of these races?

+Josh Augustine Exactly! And the spice of life is variety, so the occasional outlier... say the goblin who stands tall when his brethren run for the hills.... I love that stuff. It goes a long way to making you not fall into the "combo" mentality, where you see a race as a question to a response you already know (i.e., spella, spellb, attack this way, move on). it keeps you engaged!

My microphone is busted atm, but once it's fixed I'm going to record a new episode that kicks off a Draenor team.

What are the best new pets in the expansion that you've found?

I made a list of my favorite games, comics, technology, and game dev experiences from 2014.

What are yours?
2014 has been a wonderful year. Jenna and I had our first son (who's interrupted my writing of this blog post about 79 times with his adorable crying), I moved over to the dev team for Landmark and...

+Scott Myers Nice! I can't wait to hear how it goes :) I hope you have as much fun as we do!

Haha, I love that name for the music. I'm not actually sure -- I only played Gauntlet Legends in the arcade, not Gauntlet proper :(  I'm educating myself with this!

The dev group just found a beautiful player-made ruin in a Landmark cavern. I love the new underground!

I got to interview two Blizzard devs on this week's show! I asked about the expansion, future plans, and a few questions from you guys :) I hope you like it!
Two of the brilliant brains behind the cards you love -- senior game designers Ben Brode and Mike Donais from Blizzard -- stop by the Happy Hearthstone this week to chat about the new Goblins vs. G...

Letters of Note: When Einstein wrote to Gandhi
feedproxy.google.com

Fascinating letters. Interesting correspondence.

Friendly, professional, and fast. I called several moving places in the area for a last-minute move. Adam at Green Movers was the friendliest representative I spoke with, and he found ways to save us money by only bringing on extra movers when they were needed for the heaviest furniture. I liked that Green Movers: - Has a low minimum-hour requirement (3 hours). Others I spoke with charged for 5 hours minimum. - Would move my piano from a second-story apartment (Discount Movers refused). - Has super friendly and fun staff. Thank you, Jeff, Elliot, and Mike! - Worked hard and did not drag out the time, while making sure not to damage anything. Green Movers moved us quickly, for a little more than half of the quote I got from another moving company (who wouldn't move the piano). I'd recommend them to anyone moving in the San Diego area.
