Announcing a New Addition!

Dawnforge is very proud to announce the addition of a new show to the Dawnforge network. Since the network launched in early 2011, we have tried to focus on bringing quality podcasts to the forefront, and helping those who enjoy Podcasts find shows that are going to be worth their precious listening time. Towards this goal, we have added many shows since launch that we felt had potential, like Obscurecast, Steamforge, Shattered Soulstone and others, both new and existing productions.

It is therefore with great happiness that Dawnforge would like to announce the addition of another show to the network. This show is fairly new to the WoW Podcast Community, numbering less than ten episodes, but the hosts have a solid basis of podcasting. One of them spent many episodes on the Overlores, and even guested a few times on our own Group Quest. Another spent time helping launch another show before personal tragedy struck, but never gave up on the dream of podcasting, and has since launched this new show. The last person is new to podcasting, but brings a great deal of WoW experience to the table.

Dawnforge would like to welcome the Let’s WoW podcast to the network!

Welcome, wielders of the Force

Dawnforge is proud to announce our latest, and 8th podcast in the company, Chronicles of the Old Republic, the podcast covering many aspects of the newly released Star Wars The Old Republic game released tonight by Bioware.
