This week we discuss Rifts announcement to go FREE TO PLAY with Elrar!  And catch up on the past weeks news too.

Listen now:


What we’ve done in game:




  • Got me a HELLBUG!  And then dyed my wardrobe to match it.  Took a while to find the group running around Ashora, but got it the first night I did.

  • Have done all the dailies in Ashora at Nurjak Vostra, (south Ashora)

Solo’d level 60 quests, including the group quest for the dailies.

  • less then a bar from level 57!

  • Have my plat to buy my 130% mount!!  Why can’t it be pretty?

  • After completing the quest chains in Ashora we travelled to Dusken.  Explored all but the last zone, getting all the ports, doing a few carnage quests.  Nope, not a fan, sooo creepy!



  • Hellbug mount, Hellbug pet, MORE mounts and pets…. My alts are happy.

  • Dailies in Ashora

  • Explored EVERYTHING!

  • Instant Adventure.

  • Crafting stuff, trying to get some good stuff for the AH.
