Hey guys, I'm sitting here listening to the beginning of episode #1 of A Doug's Guide to Summoner Wars. Sounds like something you need to check out. I don't know if they have their iTunes feed up and running yet, but they do have a direct link to episode 1.

Obviously official company caveats such as "the opinions of these guys don't necessarily reflect the opinions of..." apply here, although I've gotten to hang out with both Brian and Frank a couple times and can confirm they're great guys who will do well as the Voice of the Dougs. However I'm only about fifteen minutes in while posting it so be aware they may very well declare war against Colby by the end of the episode.

If you're addicted to Summoner Wars and the discussion that surrounds it, this is the (other) podcast for you. Click here to download episode 1. Click here to go to their forum thread. We hope it's the first of many!

Update: It's now on iTunes.

It's supposedly being sent to itunes. Not sure if I did it correctly, or how long it should take...but it should be on its way.

This should be under podcasts as another series.

This is awesome. But someone needs to favorite Sunderved. He's just so badass. Like a Ram Samurai General.

I enjoy using rune mages in the vangaurds. Combined with healing and guardian knights they can syphon around 7 magic or so.

reddawn, I think you just gave PHG the most awesome idea for the next Mountain Vargath summoner. Go samurai goats, PHG.

Cuffs Alister commented:

Samuri Goats? NINJA DEATH! No, actually I think the mountain vargath are to large to be samauri or ninjas who focused mainly on technique of swords, shruikens, and staves. They didn't focus on strentgh and armor so much.

At 51:00 it sounds like someone is starting a lightsaber fight! :D

Yea, if that is during the Battle Reports, UE's mic stopped working, and all it came out as was that sound. I thought about removing the battle report, but liked some of the talk that was brought up.

Don't listen to BT - I'm a Sith Lord. I find BTs lack of faith disturbing.

I had to chuckle when after almost an hour you said "let's get right to our main topic"!

My hand is not up. I enjoy hearing you talk. Makes for a great nap.

killercactus commented:

Not as good of a nap as when UE's speakers aren't turned on.

Lalalalalala

The podcast was cool! Way cooler than I thought it would be! Finally Summoner Wars all the way, who wants to hear about another games anyway... Ok, maybe except the Resistance. Hopefully you'll be able to maintain a regular output. Keep up the good work.

You talked about mercs, but did not mention that maybe some of them combo very well with some Summoners + his minions.
I mean that Rune Mages in Vanguards was a new idea to me, Priests behind and Guardians Knights, gotta try that.

It could be cool to go through the Factions and talk about some faction specific mercs that combo good with the faction decks. You did mention something in the podcast already.

killercactus commented:

Mercs in other factions is something I'd really like to devote a whole main topic to. There's so many mercenaries now and a lot of factions that can get good use out of them, and there's also a lot of Mercs that I think are overused (which I did throw in some ranting on....). Definitely something I'd like us to tackle though.

JanE commented:

Great to hear! I am looking forward to that another Merc episode!

When I am listening your future episodes, what is the best way to send you feedback, suggestions etc.?

Maybe you know already about your sound quality issues... =(

Posted on 2013-01-22.

BTBAM commented:

Yep, sound issues were only a few specific guys' microphones. We won't have them with us until sound situations are figured out, but we wanted to get the first cast out, and honestly didn't realize the sound issue and it's unavoidance until we were already going. When KC and I alone do it, the sound is fine.

Mercs in specific factions is either another topic on its own, but more than likely will be something talked about during the discussions of specific factions. Meaning, when we talk about SO we will mention use of Etch, Apprentice Mages, or Rogues. When talking JE we will mention Khan Queso, Vermin. That sort of thing will come up in their specific episodes I'd imagine, but who knows, it might also get aired on a discussion specifically about useful mercs in decks.

Any comments, topics, questions, feedback can be sent to adougsguide@gmail.com

Thanks for listening and bearing with the first episode and hopefully the last of our sound complications!

killercactus commented:

That's a good point Brian - about bringing up Mercs in each summoner specific discussion (yes - we're going to have to start thinking that way. You'll see that Maldaria and Elien are very different decks, for example!). As we move through the factions (and we will - maybe the order will be up to you? Who do the listeners want to hear about? Let us know!), we can hit on which Mercs make sense there and why

BTBAM commented:

We're trying to do this for the listeners to be able to become stronger SW players and or provide information we hope is valuable to the game. My hope is that the listeners can provide us grace even if we have sound issues, and that hopefully the content of the talks would be more valuable than the annoyance that any sound issues may cause, while at the same time working towards remedying any of those distractions.

Again, thanks everyone for listening to the podcast and as we continue we hope to turn out a more quality and useful resource for the whole SW community. We have lots of good discussion right around the corner.

Enjoying the podcast. Sound quality improvements would help, but overall a good start. Keep the goofing around to a minimum and the strategy tips to a maximum and you will have a hit on your hands. Thank you for creating this.

BTBAM commented:

Thanks for the feedback webchain! First timers here on podcasting, so hearing what people want definitely will help us. With all the information we want to get across, I'm hoping to see the cast full of more info as we go, and since we've already done our intros, just something we wanted to get across in the first show, we'll hopefully be more to your liking as we go
