The reward for early bird tome is actually 10k Thieving and 40k Fishing, not the other way around. Otherwise great show as usual, and they really should have a battlefish minigame!

It's fine to put rares back in the market because in the real world, just because someone goes to jail doesn't mean their stuff isn't still in the world. It's better to keep the rares in because there are so few of them anyway, it won't make the price go up anyway. No one would know which rares were affected.

I must say, I do like the brief style you guys did at the start. I think people should just read the notes for the show, but since I don't think most people do, having the brief is a good way to go. I'd say stick with it.

Hmm. I'll be honest and say I'm not too fond of the new set up. What I originally thought is that you guys were going to do is just do a quick rundown of the news posts of the week, then go into some analysis of it; where the goal was to spend less time reading the news post and more on your opinions. That's not really what happened though. You guys did the rundown, but then did what you always do and one by one went and basically read them to us. This isn't faster, in fact, this probably took more time.

My recommendation would be to give the run down right after introducing the hosts, or hell, couple it with the intro. Then, one by one, give us about a minute of paraphrasing the article (this of course, requires all of the hosts to actually read them...), then go into analysis. The analysis is what we want to hear. Myself particularly, I want to know how each news article changes the game from how it previously was; i.e., the impact on me as a player. Yeah, I may miss something on the front page which makes an in-depth read helpful, but if you really want to eliminate the boring filler, don't read the news word for word to us. We all have the ability to read the full news posts if we want more detailed info. Don't necessarily skip over anything, but don't spoon feed it to me either.

The listener relies on the hosts to deliver the point, along with the effects of something. We trust you to make informed decisions as to what to spend time on, and what not to. That's why it is so important for the hosts to keep focused and be up to date on everything. This episode in particular, it seemed like all of the hosts were very aloof. Keep it fun and informal, but at least be attentively listening and participating in the discussion.

Just my thoughts. Keep up the good work and thanks for answering my question. <3
