Whining about the crunching was my first post on Nerdy Show page, before I joined the forums or anything, and since it demanded you to have a handle I wrote “M” just to put something in the field. I didn’t expect them to react to it at all, actually, though if you whine to someone “I don’t like you doing X” then what’s the most obvious reaction? And yeah, Nerdy Show has some serious level of audience engagement, which is why you often hear them bringing up listeners by name in the podcasts.
As for NWN2, I quite like it, I have a running game with my wife right now. I play somewhat addled human wizard who has a tendency to ramble on incoherrently about unrelated franchises and blanket the game area with massive spells hitting friend and foe alike.
