This is pretty cool.

ThatTallGuy:
It seems to be getting better, but what was up with the random few seconds of metal music in the middle of the video?

She said "Who wants my throwing axe? I'm getting too weighed down with stuff." and the music clip went "How heavy this axe" (from the song of the same name) - see what they did there? I thought it was hilarious (I'm a huge fan of The Sword, the band that made that song)

Best episode yet, I think. I'm one of the few who liked it pretty well from the beginning...

needs more spiderwerewolves...

This was better than the first one (which is the only other one I watched) but it still not very good. Frankly it's just boring. The game isn't very interesting, the girls aren't very interesting, so what's the point? The girl's are attractive I'll give them that but that really doesn't hold my interest. If I want to watch hot porn stars I'll watch porn.

And who the fuck is that random guy in the background?

needs a bit comedy and editing like mentioned and if necessary act some bits just don't make it obvious that they're acted ( and yes i know it kind of defeats the point but it would make it funnier). anyways utilize it's potential, it's got it and you need to use it.

Me too.
I've never actually played a tabletop RPG, since they never really got to the country I'm from. There are a couple of small communities centered around them here, but I'm not sure they count. Because of that, watching how a game plays out in real life is very interesting to me. Even more so, in light of the all female players, coming from a background considered to be the polar opposite of "geek". It's provocative, of course, which makes the series a perfect way to introduce RPG's to the uninitiated. Then maybe link them to the "Days of High Adventure" column, which I read with great pleasure.
By the way, I can't help but feel disappointed by the poor taste in some of the previous comments. Especially the ones condemning the idea for the series as "gimmicky" and accusing the actual persons in the videos of failing to mesure up to that gimmick in the same post. That's... really more like a problem with you guys.

And you got rid of unforgotten realms for this even a if the third series was a little weak this sucks so bad.

standokan:
for some reason i really like, maybe its because all the pornstars (google a name like i did) Question!! whats with the guys on the bed or sofa?

I was thinking those guys on the bed and stuff were the sound & camera crew? Because imo the sound is pretty good even with all the people talking around a table, useualy a get together like that is hard to sound good but they did all right.

I like this episode even more cuz there really starting to get into the fighting part and figuring out stuff :) that's my favorite!

I hope Sasha gets to talk more cuz she is pretty funny or I hope she gets to interview her friends, she seems pretty good at that.

P.S. That was a good move to just burn the spiderling sack, if they would of choped it there probably would have been thousands of little baby spiders everywere.

too true, i do think that a large number of comments were in poor taste. it's like they're the kind of people who look at a piece of art with a naked person in it and accuse it of being porn. It's just nice to know i'm not the only person not watching it because some of people may be or have been pornstars.

the random metal music in the middle wasent such a good idea, if you were trying to bleep someone, shoulda just gone with a bleep.

other then thats its preity good!

This is just awful...please for the love of all table-top games stop this.

How f***ing boring!

I'd sooner get a root canal than be in a room with these girls.

It occurred to me while watching this that I would love to see, or hear, a show where the QI panel (BBC TV panel quiz) played D&D. Stephen Fry would be a terrific DM!

they all seem really bored and not into it or wanting to flee. and for the love of christ atleast TRY not to film their pimp being bored of his tits aswell dammit

I love how it says "Episode Three A lot of Spiders".

This seems like an unnecessarily long intro to a very interesting and complex pornography... I still don't know what's supposed to be going on here... I'm just more confused than anything else. I've watched every episode, but I don't know why...

Oh but that outro song is so good. What is it?

I'm with you here. I'm loving it too, and song interjection made me laugh as well.

There seems to be four kinds of people commenting on this series:

1) People who watch it, are bored, and then watch it anyway, just to complain about being bored. Irony - complaining about being bored is, in fact, itself, boring.

2) People who get the fact that sometimes the stuff one is shown isn't neccessarily exclusively designed to their tastes, and who've been liking it for what it is. These people are considered deluded and ignorant by the other types.

3) "Who are these pornstars trip-trapping on my Escapist! They have boobs - THIS OFFENDS ME! It might offend me less if I approved of their boobs!!! Why does The Escapist offend my sensitive values by assuming that I will watch something that has boobs in it, that I will then ONLY watch for boob-content and complain about the way the boobs look?!? I will teach the programmers at The Escapist a lesson - I will watch more and continually complain about their boobs!!!"

4) People who want this to be a video game review, and will, as a result, never be satisfied.

"How Heavy This Axe" by The Sword - amazing band

EDIT: Or actually, that might be another song by the same band, called "Fire Lances of the Ancient Hyper-Zephyrians". I know the music earlier in the video is from HHTA.

EDIT 2: Shit, I'm all confused, lol. I'm not great at differentiating bits of guitar tracks like that - I'm not sure which song that's from, but I know it's by The Sword.

Game Dogs and now this. The women are not really particularly clever or enthusiastic or anything.

This makes Game Dogs look like solid gold comedy.

At least there are cute girls to look at. Game Dogs has zero reedeming qualities. Thsi show has one in my opinion. Not that this series is any good, but saying that Game Dogs was better than anything made my heart hurt.

I don't know what's worse. His pathetic attempt at being a Dungeon Master or his god awful skills at video editing. That place they live in is a real dump too. I wouldn't be surprised if it's an abandon building and their squatting rent free.

What cute girls? They all look fugly and used up, in my opinion.
I'm not much of a fan of Game Dogs either but this series is just so fucking awful, at least episode 3 of Game Dogs was funny.

Can't forget!

5) People who like the show, who feel the need to mock others for voicing their honest opinion by gathering their comments up and making rude lists...

and

6) People who dislike the show who are letting the Author know that he needs to do something if he cares about it enough to make some changes.. Which seems like the comments are more or less the same with each and every episode...

If the show is good for you, that's fine, but to mock others for being honest is not cool. Some comments seem to speak a tad more offensive than others, but by commenting here, they are indeed giving valid input to help improve the series...

Heck I almost considered #3 of your list as flame-bait.. Gotta be careful with that stuff..

Anywho, welcome to the Escapist, who you enjoy your stay here!

Edit with a fix: Wow.. Live preview screwed up big time there..

The entire hook of this series is that girls play games, in this case- pen and paper RPG. (to up the ante)

Not for me.

Not your BBC but I hope you enjoy ^-^

Wizard with a crowbar.
lol
Alright I have to tip my hat because I have played for a long time, and DMed a lot of games, and that is the first time I've seen a wizard try to kill something with a crowbar.

Also, the werespiderwolf thing, classic.

The camera work or your guys set up seems pretty limited though. I mean, it's just that one shot, and you basically just have to watch the same two people for the majority of it....including the dude in the background reading the comics, which, I'd prolly just nix him from the background shot cause it's kind of "blah". I mean I know he's your guys friend, but, he just sit there's like a static lump and the rest of us couldn't care less what skater gear he wore or which comic he's reading.

I'm not seeing enough Satine action in here *shakes fist*
She's a legit vet, I want to see some Satine skills more. That's the type of chick you could confidently take with you on a dragon fight.

OoO I cast magic missle at the darkness!

Rogue Marvel:
I really really want to like this show. I'm all for attractive females playing d&d especially when some of them are porn stars, but its so boring. I feel like they just gave them a crappy camera and have someone do a quick edit and throw it on the internet. I think it would work way better if they filmed the game and then spent time interviewing the players and DM after and inter-cut the footage. Even then I'm not sure that would make they show that much more interesting...I'm not sure if watching D&D can be that interesting. But upping the production and adding interviews would probably help.

At the same time I don't think the players care enough to even take the time to do that. It really feels like they don't really care about the show...they are goofing off filming and could care less if people watch. On some level probably more fun for them, but it makes for terrible viewing.

+10 mario stars ^-^ d I agree

RAID GETS BUG DEAD

i think the reason like this so much is its such novelty adult entertainers playing D&D where else you gonna find that.

It's not mocking anyone's honesty, really, it's mocking some people's hypocrisy. You have to agree that doesn't really fall into "valid input". Also, "I don't like it, so change it in a way that I would" actually doesn't suggest an improvement. It suggests catering for an audience that may very well be outside the series' target, and you just can't please everyone. "I like this and that, concentrate on improving them" is a much more useful form of feedback, because it supports, rather than suppresses the person's creativity and may motivate them to go the extra mile to indulge you, even if you're not in the above mentioned target.

too true, i do think that a large number of comments were in poor taste. it's like they're the kind of people who look at a piece of art with a naked person in it and accuse it of being porn. It's just nice to know i'm not the only person not watching it because some of people may be or have been pornstars.

Well, uh, that was kind of the premise that they launched it with. That's not why I watched it either, but the hook for the community was "pornstars playing D&D". Says so in the site description. And the way you played that metaphor, you made it seem like this is art... It ain't. This is an amateur video of several average-looking women with intriguing hairstyles sitting around a table rolling dice. Which, in my opinion (and in art terms) puts it somewhere below Cassius Coolidge's "Dogs Playing Poker". I mean, this is like an average person filming their average D&D session and posting it online... it's boring to watch, but fun to participate in.

Wow my DnD group is way more entertaining than this! I didn't know I could of got paid by escapist for just setting a camera around when we played... (no offence but you girls are not witty at all, it is just painful to watch)

everyone who think this is entertaining should search "robot chicken D&d" on youtube for a show worth watching

I'll chime in on the "Yay" side. I was dubious at first, but (as stated by the first reply) it's getting better. So I'd like to see where this is going at least.

Also, kudos to the GM for the voices.

i was just trying to make a point, i know this is not art but it was the only analogy i could think of ( i like to explain things with humorous analogies although this one may not be humorous)
