I Hit It With My Axe: Episode 30: What We Did On Our Winter Vacation

Episode 30: What We Did On Our Winter Vacation

The party leaves Vornheim to deal with its problems and heads off on vacation, but not before a group of gnolls and a new guest star arrive.

Watch Video

A pretty good episode. The "Sea of Despair" or whatever doesn't sound like a great vacation spot - glad they decided not to go there...

And welcome to Bobbi the Jewish Dwarf! lol

A bit of a transitional episode as would be expected, but good stuff none the less.

Bye Bye Gia, I would have been guted to have to leave in the middle of a scrap. And Welcome Bobbie Star. That was wicked cool that her first action in the game was throwing an axe. That's the kind of action we like around here.:) Also, grats to KK for her award. Nice work!. Def a transitional episode but no less enjoyable becouse of that. Looking forward to seeing what this Jewish Dwarf can do.:) see ya next week everybody!

Donīt female dwarves have beards, or is that just tolkien talking?

Excellent as always, shame to see Gia go, happy to see Bobbie arrive.
Hope you guys are having fun in New York and the art show opening goes well. Impressed you still found time to give us an IHIWMA. :)

Is it awful of me to cringe when you say Gnoll Zak? heh Gnall? :P

Anyway, good episode, thing always get interesting when players decide to set out for...nowhere in particular?

Jewish Dwarf cracked me up...hopefully her axes can save the day.

Also, you always have kickin mini's Zak.

Anyone else see mandy's "myspace pose" at 5:37? :P

I am disappointed that none of the ladies tried the Universal Greeting on the guh-nolls before getting into the fighting.

Girls are dumb.

(I joke!)

I have a friend who is Jewish, short and a geek. As far as I know, she's never played D&D, but if I tell her about the Jewish Dwarf, she might find herself tempted.

I too appreciated Mandy's photo-taking spree. Hey, new guest star - I'd want to document it too.

This episode kind of surprised me, probably because I haven't watched the last couple of episodes. The move from Gia to Bobbi was so quick and so free of pomp or circumstance I was a bit disappointed. Though, to be fair, I'm sure the crew will be seeing Gia again, so it's probably not as big a moment for them as it is for us.

"She'll fit right in..." and she did. Welcome Bobbi.

"What's their motivation?"
"Robbing and eating people."
I think that about sums it up for the Gnolls

Oh and congrats KK!

I enjoyed seeing the new girl. Bobbi seems really cool so far. The second time I watched the video though, I noticed something. Frankie wasn't at the table!!! NOOOOOOO!!!! :O

I think Dragon Age was quite innovative to cast dwarves as having a society based upon a caste system. A male dwarf would be expected to have the same occupation as their father, and likewise a female dwarf her mother. Virtually the only way for a dwarf to choose an occupation would be to become an outcast.

Bobbi was probably just joking about being a Jewish dwarf based on the lead figurine, though perhaps she'll take the idea in a creative direction.

Bobbi seems like she'll fit right in! Jewish dwarf for the win! Congrats to KK, and I hope the gallery opening goes well Zak.

I loved the joke, and appreciate being considered smart, thank you. I'm impressed that Zak recognized the symbol, though in hindsight I would have not thought about it off the bat. JD ftw!

Another great, entertaining episode. Thank you for rekindling my interest in D&D and adult entertainment.

Isn't it in Terry Pratchett that his Dwarves are Jewish? (As opposed to Scottish, which everyone else seems to make them.)

It took you two times to notice that? Where are your priorities, man?? Seriously, if Frankie doesn't come back, I'm gonna be super sad. I'm hoping its just for an episode or two.

*crosses fingers*

Good show (loved the hyena/monkey analogy)--I always hated it when combat had to break in the middle, but sometimes that's life. If only we could do that in RL.

Welcome to Bobbi, gratz to KK, and hope to see you again to GJ (as well as whoever else was going away for a month).

Frankie got a one-shot kill, nice one!

Well, the first time I was paying attention to the new girl.

By the way, Zak, I had no idea you are such an accomplished artist. I'm going through the Gravity's Rainbow illustrations (http://www.themodernword.com/pynchon/zak_smith/title.htm) --very awesome work there!

'nother epic episode ^_^

Eeek, my previous post didn't include an important comment. Congratulations KK on your award and most excellent acceptance speech, may you win many more.

Bobbi's first action was to hit something with an axe. I reckon she'll fit right in.

Sucks that Gia left though - it didn't seem like she was there for all that long.

As always it was another fun episode, typical of D&D groups though. As the DM you spend hours upon hours slaving away over a hot monster manual (I've burned so many in the name of that metaphor, cost me thousands) to come up with awesome stuff for your group to do - and they decide to go on vacation instead.

Let's see. No MVP award this time around, but that's because we're gearing up for some awesomeness...and I'll give two next time around.

Zak, I love you! I love your snarky DM-ness. You just roll with PC randomness sooo well.
Sad to see GJ go, I liked her mellowness around the table...and now that she's gone, I'm reminded of Justine...and I totally miss her all over again! I hope we get to see her again.

All of that said, welcome to Bobbi! I can already tell that you are going to be awesome (it was the hitting people with your axe that did it).

What else? Oh, congrats on your award KK!

Enjoyable episode! But I can't help but wonder what the consequences will be for ducking out on Vornheim right before a possible dual invasion. I mean, they did send that messenger to the Goblin City...but will he make there in one piece?

Anyway, let's see how vacation goes! I wonder if it will be like one of those Star Trek episodes where they go to some pleasure planet and it never works out.

FYI, Frankie isn't in the Bobbi Episode. Since its shot all in one day and split into different episodes Frankie won't be around for a few episodes. Sorry guys.
