Frostheim’s Final Podcast Today

Posted: by Frostheim


My final appearance as a host of the Hunting Party Podcast will be today at http://www.huntingpartypodcast.com at 2pm eastern time, 1pm central, 12pm mountain, and 11am pacific. In addition I will be in-game on the Icecrown server — I’m thinking I’ll probably start around Kharanos and probably make my way to the Loch Modan dam. That dam has always been a place of special celebration among the WHU, and it seems a fitting place to hang out during the final show.

Since today is my last podcast, we will be playing the HPP drinking game, version 2, created by Bozanimal. And we will be joined on the show by Michele Morrow, who will be playing the drinking game with us.

For those who want to follow along, here are the rules:

The original Hunting Party Podcast Drinking Game was intended to be more for the sake of humor than an actual drinking game, pointing out some recurring themes that had gone from quirky to become running gags. Alisaunder speaks quite frequently now, Frostheim seems to have dropped his habit of snapping his fingers when making a point, Hunter PvP is a regular topic in the Q&A, and reforging questions are a rare occ- well, some things are still the same, anyway.

This game(s) has been redesigned to be both entertaining in identifying show memes as well as feasible from a drinking game standpoint. The game has been split into two so that show hosts have their own variation relative to listeners because, after all, the show hosts control the content. Never trust anyone who fakes their own death on a regular basis.

Note especially that the HPP Drinking Game is designed for beer or mixed drinks with similar alcohol content, not for shots of hard liquor. Bozanimal assumes no responsibility or liability which may arise from the excessive or irresponsible consumption of alcohol. This game is intended for adults. Drink responsibly, otherwise you might wake up one morning naked, sandwiched between your Pet and a Feral Druid, and sore in weird places.


The Hunting Party Podcast LISTENER Drinking Game!

Note that “If” is a one-time only drink. “Whenever” is a drink for EACH occurrence.

DRINK

  • Whenever a host screws up/ misses their line(s) and/or is reminded by a co-host

  • Whenever a host complains about Hunter PvP, including minimum range

  • Whenever a question regarding secondary stats is asked and answered (includes reforging)

  • Whenever a host says, “Darkbrew Lager” (Darkbrew alone doesn’t count)

  • Whenever technical issues of any type occur (e.g. Skype drops and hardware crashes)

ONCE

…for each HPP running gag: Frostheim’s hairy wrists, Canadian jokes, Euripides’ hot sister, Feral Druids, Darkbrew’s Amazing Rare Spawn Tames, and Sporebats

  • If the words “viable” and/or “optimal” are used in any way

  • If all four show hosts are in attendance

  • If Frostheim makes someone notably uncomfortable (e.g. “I’d totally tame you, Dawn!”)

  • If Euripides is accused of having certain inappropriate feelings towards Feral Druids

  • If anyone refers to the show notes during the show (e.g. “I’m just reading what’s in the show notes.”)

DOWN A GLASS

  • If your question or email are read-aloud on the show

  • If Darkbrew is given half the crap Frostheim and Euripides give one another

  • If a real-life injury is sustained by a show host during the show (including the break)

  • If a news announcements includes a new in-game item, NPC, or achievement named after a hunter community member

    Cheers to you Frostheim!

    I had to bail out of the in-game festivities at around half-past the hour when IRL work called with a problem that ended up eating my whole Saturday.

    I hope you get more game time and get your IRL game to take off.

    Holy crap, I wanted to cry, but I was laughing so hard. I’m going to miss Frost so much!
