I actually quite liked it.
As a long term player, myself and a select few often head into min-maxing and end up having to grab a handful of dice and roll them several times, so the banter seemed perfectly normal.

We've also had the 'luck' of training a few new players up, (some of which even decided to stay and play afterwards :P) so its nice watching the trials and tribulations of it happening to another group.
As for the camera, I can see why it was wiggling about (stepping over stuff, dodging between people, etc) and didn't mind that either. Guess I'm not as fussy as other purists.

On a side-note: "Other guest star"? Guess Sasha got bored of sucking, which is a shame.

Nah, if you look at the blog, it's basically that they get a new guest star for each adventure; as the guest stars are friends of theirs who don't live in LA.

Rock'n'roll is dead, long live rock. Um, D&D, 'tever. It looked like their figurines were mounted on little iced cookies. How weird is that? Yeah...I'm gonna have to bail. I have junk mail to shred.

I thought it was pretty boring all together but I'm a pretty big fan of The Sword so that was pretty cool but the rest was just kinda dnd to me, the chicks don't really help make it that interesting.

No thanks. I'll give you points for trying something different and it certainly seems to draw people in but this was just kind of boring to watch. Maybe some people find it cool but just because you've got porn stars playing doesn't make the action any less dull.

Thats just kewl. I don't play D&D outside of a computer anymore, but its always good to see famous people (whatever they're famous for) playing D&D. For the record, I'm either a human paladin (typical, no nonsense, do-gooder) or a true neutral tiefling thief with a bow of some description... Not too sneaky in a dungeon, but watch your coin purse and don't get in my sights...

Ugh.

Just... ugh.

A couple of them seemed quite bemused as to what they were actually doing there. I wasn't quite sure what to make of it. Guess I'll see how the next episode fairs...

I got kinda bored with it. And by kinda bored, I mean I just forced myself to sit through the full episode just to make sure it wasn't gonna get better after the introductions of everyone and so on. I actually expected to see more D&D. I don't play myself, and, for a lack of better words, an outside looking in view of the game, was the only reason I watched to begin with.

I didn't really expect a ton of the game to be featured, but the porn star gimmick didn't help at all either.

Erm.. im not really sure what i just watched but i felt like i should be watching it with shades and a trench coat on. Would have made a great setup for a porn movie though. I kept expecting them to mkae out or something, it was a little jarring.

i just don't get it. why is this good

I'm sure this sounded great during the pitch meeting... So it's got that going for it.

Thanks everyone for watching!
Weather you love it or it's just not your thing, we really appreciate you all watching our show. It's really fun for us to share these moments with you. There's an Interview that posted on http://io9.com today that explains the series better.
Thanks again,
Satine

Snipped for space

Yea, I'll tell you what I told Zak when he asked me to join the show. "What get paid to do what I love? F**k yea!" Sounds dorky but it was one of the two far fetched ideas I had when I was younger and as an adult I got to fulfill them. I totally shrieked with joy at my first DM (from high school) when we shot the first show. 15 years ago we thought it would be fun to record a game and turn it into a book (pre pod cast & you tube).

The lighting for the Sasha Segment does suck unfortunately. We learned our lesson and fixed it with the next Guest Star. And I totally know what you're talking about with Post production. It's what my boyfriend does for a living :) (super Nerd/burns in sunlight/video compositor using Nuke & Infernos) It will be a few weeks before we get there. This isn't the kind of thing you can just re shoot. Its a one shot deal. There are no saves or re dos. The thing about us is that we're not acting. There's no script and you TOTALLY get to see the reactions when we mess up. HAHA.

Stop by my blog: http://sexfoodandcomicbooks.com and say hi. Would love to hang out. OH and one more thing... I don't do porn anymore. Haven't for 6 months. I'm a comic book illustrator. That doesn't quite get covered in the show.

I'm glad it was you this time, I was getting sick of whatshisface's attempts to goad me into an argument. Oh well, every bridge and every forum needs a Troll I guess, I just refuse to feed them.

Anyway, I've not had a chance to use Nuke yet, but I've been using After Effects for a while & it sounds like a great add-on. I don't run an SGI so I haven't played with Inferno. Sunlight? Are you talking about that big bright thing up in the sky that seems to come up over the horizon when I'm going to bed? Yeah I'm pretty sure I've heard of it.

What publications do you draw for? What software do you use? I'm in the market for a new tablet pretty soon, any recommendations? My Genius one has worn almost all the way through.I didn't know that could happen, but what do you want for a $60 tablet?

Good to hear the technical issues have been resolved, that's the problem with shooting on the fly. I like the idea of nothing being obviously scripted, and you still have plenty of time to polish things up & take it to the next level. (Next Level, get it?)

Just like with everything else, there will be people that love it, people that hate it, people that couldn't care less and people that wish they'd thought of it first. Of course you're going to get inflammatory remarks from smacktards that want to feel superior to you, (as evidenced in this forum) and my advice to them is: If you want to look down on someone, put a mirror on the floor.

Some ideas take time to grow, and I think you've got a good one. I think its success depends on just how interesting the banter between players is, and whether or not you're going to concentrate on the game action or the table action. Either of them could net some seriously entertaining back and forths, and yes, some arguments between D&D players (me included) can be seriously hilarious, especially when hardcore nerdism is involved ;)

Man, being accused of pretending to be a geek? How the hell does THAT work?

(And yes, The Terminator is worth watching until the tape breaks, then you can get the DVD)

Thanks for the kind words. We like playing and Zak says that it gets great at Episode 5 (when the Idea & editing start to mesh).

I just published a collection of my artwork that you can buy on my website: (http://sexfoodandcomicbooks.com/burning-quill-pre-order ) and am working on 2 comics right now that we are going to publish ourselves. My set up: 24 inch I mac with duel 24 inch monitor. medium intuos wacom but I draw with brush and paper first then bring it into Photoshop and Illustrator. If I could afford it I'd get the one where you draw directly on the screen. Now THAT is hot!

Good for you!

Not that i disapprove of doing porn mind you. As a 24 year old male virgin i would be very hypocritical to be against it. Simply giving praise to anyone with the courage to do something they enjoy for a living. Some day i hope to find out what i want to do for a living so i can quit my job and do it...

See, you can look at work as something you "do for a living" or you can look at work as something you're doing right now. Anything you might be interested in doing: DO IT. Change it up every few years. Living with the thought "I wonder what it would have been like if i would have..." isn't fun because where there's a will there's a way. I guess what i'm saying is if you don't like what you're doing now, do something else. :) It doesn't seem easy, but It is. It's the whole power of positive thinking thing.

So, what i am to understand, is that the people who still play D&D today or the goths, there is a big group of them who are (almost)all girls, and i'm not there to be part of this? ._. That's is rather dissapointing........

So it's porn stars doing NOT porn.

Yeah, I think I'd rather just see the porn, thanks...

Seriously, that was the most boring six-some minutes of Sasha Grey footage I've ever seen.. though I've yet to see Girlfriend Experience...

I liked it - it's pretty unique, and I must admit, the players are pretty easy on the eyes. There's just something charming about these girls (who are not your typical D&D players) nerding out and rolling dice.

Plus, the music is fucking awesome - I love The Sword \m/

It's cool to see some chick on the escapist, welcome guys, cool vids, nice refreshing realism. Pretty funny stuff, especially for unscripted. Keeping on eye on this.

Do wanna point out that the fun of D&D is playing it, not watching others play.

Sounds a lot like my DnD group: A lot of deliberation and not much gets done

Also: Sweet reaper minis. I think I actually have a few of the same ones

I didn't really think this was very entertaining. I mean, it's just a load of people sitting around talking. That stuff is funny between people you know but it loses its edge on a global scale.

Uhhh, yeah. Picked out of hat one: "...playing D&D". Picked out of hat two: "...Adult film performers".

So strippers and porn starlettes are supposed to make this interesting somehow?

I couldn't get past the 1min mark due to lack of interest.

Well there is one thing i have always wanted to do. I have always wanted to write comic books. The only problem with that is while i consider myself a decent writer with good ideas i have no artistic skill what-so-ever. If i ever find anyone willing and able to do art for me i can get this dream off the ground, however until then i have to keep my ear to the ground and wait. Still, better to have something to aspire to then nothing at all i guess.

Well, this is completely off topic with the thread but I couldn't resist. I draw up my own little comics on my own free time. My problems is exactly opposite to your though. I consider myself a good doodler, it just takes me ages to come up with a good idea storywise. Oh and you know what? You may be in luck! I had a friend who got a comic book published! It was more of a Mad-esque kind of thing, but he'd write up sketches and hire artists to draw them for him. It was pretty awesome. You should look into that.

Oh and as for this "I hit it with my axe" series... I don't get it. It's like "haha, porns stars playing D&D" but, it feels too much like a boring reality show.

Clothed porn stars and strippers playing D&D.. wtf?! Lose the shirts ladies.

The idea is interesting! Nice to see another RPG group full of girls!

It's too much like a reality show, though! ^^'

Sudden amounts of win imo :P

Only pornstars could ruin DnD...

Porn stars playing DnD! YEAAAh!

When I heard Sasha Grey was starring in a fantasy, this was not what i expected...

That is pretty fun to get out with friends and play games with mostly imagination, good times. I used to do that, we used to have a coffin that floted around behind us and you could get into it and it was an entirly new world, so we just put all are stuff in there but it was much harder taking it out again.

And one time we were stuck in a room with the only key to get out inside a locked chest in the room and so we put a enlarge spell on the chest and it grew so big we almost got crushed but I figured out we could crawl inside its key hole and then get the rooms key inside the chest too. that worked out pretty well, lol good times!

Awesome, that new girl looks like a famus actress, but I can't remember her name or what she is in, I just remember them looking a lot alike and kind of act the same too. Oh man this is killing me :)

edit - lol, how funny, right above my post someone figured it out, she looks just like Sasha Grey, cool, they both got some great eye brows :)

oh yeah now I remember I saw her on G4 tv she is a host for conventions.

This looks lame, I'm gonna turn it off..... whoa wait what WHAT? Sasha Grey? WATCHING.

EDIT

Fuck, that was boring as fuck. Why would I watch these girls do this when I can watch them take it in the can on any other site?

OMG they bored the hell out of Sasha Grey :(

What the fuck is this shit?
