Farewell, Leesha Darkheart, Hello Fallon Deathslinger

It wasn't long or drawn out . . . it was just a quick note that Leesha Darkheart needs a break from Wizard101 podcasting due to time constraints and other conflicts.

It did hit the chatroom a bit and took us all by surprise.


It's usually bad form to screen capture chat and re-post it, but I felt this one was apropos. We will miss you!

I blurred names in that picture so as not to offend anyone, but I left mine. It was my pleasure to meet Leesha in real-life and share a week of GDC sitting next to her when I could. She did a lot for this community, and maybe someday we'll see her back. (She already told me that a Death Students vs. The Trial of Spheres is in order someday.)

Ravenwood Radio quickly rebounded from the announcement when we learned that Fallon Deathslinger would be Leesha's replacement. Fallon has a lot of experience with the game and a lot of passion for PvP. She has a blog with no posts on it btw. But it does tell a little bit about her. And of course, you can follow her on twitter or check out her Diary of a Wizard page.

Welcome to podcast hosting, Fallon!

Happy Dueling!

We'll definitely miss Leesha - she was wonderful! I'll always be thankful for her letting me try my idea for 'Daring Aventures of Ditto' on Ravenwood Radio - it was a wacky idea but she was into it, and it's done really well so far. thanks Leesha!!
