Recently Ten Ton Hammer had an opportunity to spend some time with Dungeons and Dragons Online (DDO) Executive Producer Kate Paiz and her fellow developers Ian Currie (Design Director), Steve Muray (Lead Systems Designer) and Jesse Smith (Content Designer) in their newest upcoming addition to Dungeons and Dragons Online, Module 8: Prisoners of Prophecy. And what a great addition to the game this module is!
There are new quests, spells, character development, monsters, exploration areas and equipment. Even more exciting, they have hirelings! Hirelings are not what you might think they are. They are not simply charmies or summoned monsters with a longer duration, these hirelings are powerful, effective, and much more than a simple target dummy that lasts a few seconds.
