I Hit It With My Axe: Episode 31: Embarrassed Both By And For The Gnolls

Episode 31: Embarrassed Both By And For The Gnolls

Embarrassment happens on both sides of the table as the party and the pack of gnolls fight it out.

Watch Video

I wish this was on more than once a week!

I'm stupidly loaded down with school work at the minute, and my DM broke her foot, so we haven't played in ages :(

I keep hoping for a recently filmed episode to see Satine's engagement ring as well!

Will there be an episode filmed while Mandy and Zak are in New York?

Bobbi seems like she's going to be more fun with the group than Gia was. Last month was pretty slow grinding there.

Haha, a good episode with some funny moments. Bobbi has to be my favorite guest so far - she's enthusiastic and "into" the game, and her stories about playing with her brother are great (and Neverwinter Nights was awesome!)

And she's real purty

The sounds effects were epic Zak. I really liked this episode a lot.

I didn't miss the music by Watch Me Burn at all. I actually preferred the voiceover instead.
That's mostly because their style of music isn't generally appealing to me.

No Frankie this time :(

Keep up the good work. Looking forward to the next one already.

Zak's sound effects always rock!
I loved his impression of the Beatles!

Oh hey, another woman I was familiar with prior to her appearance on this show, fancy that - what's that make, 5 now?

Hmm, if I recognize the next guest star, that will mean I've seen... (does the math) exactly 60% of the women who have appeared on this show in a... sans clothing context. Yay statistics!

In my case it's just a series of conflicts that result in our group being unable to get together as a group for ages, but otherwise I'm basically in your boat. It totally sucks. Does give me somewhat of an excuse for rolling up additional characters I'm probably never going to play but now have on hand "just in case" though![1]

[1] I am fooling nobody, I'm clearly just a crazy person and cannot possibly hope to justify my fixation by explaining it as "sensible planning".

Great episode! Bobbi's story was awesome. I liked getting her background experience in the game. It adds to it all for me. Great DMing as usual Zak.

Why is it my three favorite Escapist segments all come out on Wednesday? Ah, well. Great episode as usual.

Bobbi seems like a keeper. Can we keep her Zak? Pleeeeeeease:D

New guest seems awesome, though I can't take anything away from Gia. Poor thing just didn't seem to get too many chances to be up to much before the action rolled to a stop.

Now, before my old lady soaks my pillow through with tears, would someone please tell me where Frankie is? I'm not as up to date on the D & D with pornstars blog, so if she just had a dentist appointment that day or something, it's be handy information to stop the sweet little thing here with me now from blubbering, ya' dig? And no use pretending I'm not curious myself as well.

On a completely unrelated note, I have a request. Please put The Sword back into the mix if you can. Their drummer quit all of two days before they got to my town and now I have no idea when/if Asheville will have a metal show again. It would be nice to hear their stuff while looking at groovy people, which was the point of getting a ticket to the show 4 months in advance.

This is funny. I had considered how many extra net geeks Justine and Gia might have picked up on their websites after appearing on the Escapist, but it never crossed my mind to wonder how many of their fans might have migrated over here. Win-win!

Zak I plan to have a freakin sweet hairstyle like you someday! And I agree with the fellow comments Bobbi does seem like a very enthusiastic player.

They seem to have solved the problem of how to figure out individual initiative within a group that uses simple group initiative. :)

I'm actually in the third category - existing fans of the cast who were already active here on the Escapist before I Hit It With My Axe debuted, whereupon we were somewhat bemused when our interests suddenly started overlapping in ways we really didn't expect them to, heh. Not that I'm complaining!

LOl, that was just one of those turns. I've only heard of rochambeau through South Park where they kick each other square in the nuts to decide things.....didn't know quiet what to expect when that came up as a means to sort out initiative, but it's actualy rock-paper-scissors? Who knew?:) Bobbi seems cool.......Looks around the room....Where in Satans Portion is Frankie? Also, I would like to ask do any other members of the cast play computer mmorpg's or rpg's?

I like Bobbi already.

Hope Bobbi can stay on as a regular.

I took this just now.. Just for you :D Its got pretty Diamonds all down the sides too. A Diamond wrapped in Diamonds. ... Joe calls it my Shield. It blinds everyone around me, creating a sort of blinding light. A Ring of invisibility :D Yea, pretty much! On the good side, next time a guy at the gas station asks to see my hand I now have a ring on it and they'll leave me alone. (That's actually happened... it was weird.)

Basically most of these were filmed a while ago. We shoot 8 hour days and those days are spliced into a hand full of episodes. Frankie isn't in this episode, and since the next few are the same day as this one was shot, she won't be in those either.

When we used to play Live Action Vampire in high school, you would use Rochambou (R,P,S) instead of rolling dice when you wanted to fight someone. We've always called it Rochambou.. though I don't know how its spelled. I'd google it but i'm feeling lazy. I'm sure someone will correct me.
RPS was fun... Obfuscate looked silly.

Congratulations!!! It looks like a beautifully cut ring. I'm sure I speak for most of us here in wishing the two of you a life of happiness!

Congrats on the engagement Satine! That ring is a beaut and I hope your fiance is also a beaut!

MVP for this episode? The new player Bobbi! For your inventive attempts in combat and for your wonderful story about your D&D past with your brother (who was definitely in the wrong!)

I watched this at 4AM and when Mandy said "I think she was speaking goblin there," I might have woken my entire flat up with my laughing.

Also getting eaten by wolves is probably the anti-suicide. I'm pretty sure there's nothing else Bobbi could've done in that situation with her brother.

Oo, pretty and shiny. Congrats and many happy times ahead for the both of you :-)

And I think Bobbi should have punched the gnoll in the groin with all the might of a menstruating woman whose just found out the last bar of chocolate has been scoffed by the boyfriend. Oh yes.

That's awesome - congratulations, Satine! Joe's a very lucky guy ;)

Congratz, Satine!

Nice episode. Fun to see one of the great joys of D&D--the randomness of die rolling and everyone rolling badly all of a sudden, including the npcs.

Also, I hope none of you are affected by the recent HIV revelation in the porn biz.

Most potentially embarrassing Gnoll story . . .

So the party, on their way to investigate this town for the government passes through the wood west of the Wood Keep Inn (named so for a gnome who did not do so and was eaten, rather familiarily, by wolves (at least I rolled the combat with him).) The party sees two figures well ahead on the trail. As they approach cautiously they realise three things:

1. The figures are skelletons in rags
2. The rags are around the ankles of both skelletons
3. One skelleton appears to be ass-fucking the other, in standing position, without the neccessary equipment

The party gathers around the spectacle in awe, the players speechless, wondering why I would possibly put such a thing in my game. While they stand dumbfounded in a semi-circle they are ambushed from behinf by Gnolls. All the players immediate realize what exactly the skelletons were for, especially when they find the stone of undead control on one of the gnolls.

Distraction: successful
Ambush: less so

Congratulations Satine, I hope you have a lovely wedding day and an even better life together. I wish you both all the best.
How did he pop the question? Was it romantic? (I kind of impulsively asked after watching Titanic for the first time, I even took myself by surprise as I hadn't planned it at all)

In a more D&D related note, I've never used gnolls as a DM or even opposed them as a player. Mostly because they haven't really fitted in to the campaigns we were playing.

LOl! Always wonderd how you would pull off obfuscate in live action.
"What are you doing?"
"shhhh I'm invisable...shhh"
We used to play pnp Vampire at college. The only space we could use was the canteen. We did get some funny looks but on the plus side we did get easy access to sandwichs....so that was cool:)

Grats on your engagement, thats a hell of a ring. Woudn't want a right hook from that bad boy:)Nice Work Miss P /Cheer!

Gnolls is pronounced with a short o? I always thought it was with a long o, so it rhymes with coal.

It's been a while since the title of the episode was something said in the episode.

AHHHHHHHHHH!!!!!! SATINE IT'S BEAUTIFUL!! And of course, being a sheild, it's also functional!

I'm so excited for you! Is the talk of a latex wedding dress true too? You'll have gate crashers to the extreme!

I just realised that it must be a little creepy having people asking about your private life, but engagement rings were designed to be shown off.

Congratulations!

A very nice ring, miss.

I never got around to commenting on the earlier videos in this series, even though they have been entertaining and fascinating. But with Bobbi Star referencing Everquest, I had to register to post my amazement and recognition. Admiration to you Bobbi.

What I've enjoyed about the series is how regular and charaistmatic the women have been. Not what I was expecting by reading the series premise.
