by on May.23, 2011, under Podcast

For our last Episode Scott Hartsman and Cindy ‘Abigale’ Bowens join us to talk a bit about the game from back when no one knew about it, through to today. We also reminisce about the podcast origins and touch on some pertinent subjects for the future of the game:

  • The path of Rift and the Podcast
  • Guild Banks
  • Server Transfers coming soon
  • Dungeon Finder tweaking
  • Not necessarily the end, just a goodbye
  • Haha Rapture

    Thanks for your dedication and I hope you get your health problem sorted out.I have been listening your podcast since day one and I must admit that I’ll miss your friendly voice.

    Hi, I have been critical of this podcast at times. Nobody wants a podcast full of ‘ I cant talk about this’ however personal opinions on subjects can be asked without them resorting to a PR answer.I liked Hartsman saying dungeon usage has gone up and the ascend a friend is doing well. These type of things mean alot even tho they are small.

    Even tho I had had my criticisms I have a deep respect for this show. You look around for any development info or interviews and Trion is very silent. This show gave the devs an outlet and a voice.

    Ari , I truly hope that you get better and your able to continue this podcast one day.

    Rift Ads are great but I know myself and others watch this show regularly. Monday morning when I’m at work this show is what I listen to.

    Abigail/Trion – Shame on you for not giving this team of dedicated fans a lifetime membership. With Riftpodcast gone perhaps you need to create a Trion run podcast.

    Thank you everyone at riftpodcast.com for your hard work.

    You will be missed.
