  1. Any word on when their purported streaming client will be available? And any word on whether or not you can fire that skanky maid?

    🙂 I don’t think I’ve ever seen a complaint about the made.

    Although, they did change the made in Obsidian Stronghold awhile ago. She used to be the “skanky” one, now she’s more covered;)

    I haven’t seen any news about the streaming client yet, sorry.

  3. You haven’t read much Saylah, then. She’s not too fond of the maid or the crotch focused female gear. Sure, it’s par for the course… but it’s still dumb.

    At least offer a butler for those who don’t want the maid, or maybe a nice automaton or something.

    LOL, actually I do like the maid, from a male perspective, but it wouldn’t hurt me, if they replaced her.

    I actually agree about the skimpy female armor. Some of the most awesome armor is the cloth robes that almost-completely covers them sans some cleavage.

    RoM has some awesome looking armor and to resort to g-strings isn’t really conducive of making lots of varying styles.
