This week on Battle Bards, Steff, Syl, and Syp recall their first steps into MMOs -- and the music that would be forever linked to those events.  Yup, it's starter zone week on the show, so break out a big canister of nostalgia and join us!

I've listened to the last two episodes and this is fast becoming one of my favourite podcasts.

I enjoyed the whole show but have to admit I teared up a little at the outro, my own personal Starter Zone choice, Freedom Court from CoH. So many memories, so many alts, that music stirs my emotions still, a year after NCSoft took away my home.

Looking forward to the next one!
