I Hit It With My Axe: Episode 32: Once More Things Go Awry

Episode 32: Once More Things Go Awry

The gnolls stop embarrassing themselves and the battle starts to turn against the party.

Watch Video

Holy crap, KK, I'm SO HAPPY I'm not the first one to try and whale on an enemy...WITH A DOG.

Our poor ranger (who I got thrown into prison with me, and thus the arena) was killed by wargs, and had I managed to make it over to her in one less round, I could have administered healing. What stopped me? The worg I was fighting, who was being joined by the worg that critted the shit out of her. GM did a nice job of crunching numbers in a hurry and determined that if I was balls-out-lucky, I could land one of my flurry of blows hits on each of them and hopefully crit on them both.

My solution? "Fuck that. Grapple check on Fido here. I'm gonna' break his neck as I use him to bludgeon Pluto."

Sadly, Pluto proved a bit more resilient than we liked, and Miss Ranger died, but not before Pluto was hit with an unarmed strike crit that sent the arena spectators home with chunky souvenirs. The thought of the whole thing kind of makes me need a cigarette, for a multitude of reasons.

Anyways, I say all that to say this: way to improvise. You should look into the drunken master thing if Zak allows for prestige classes down the road.

"Next week, on I Hit It With My Dog..."

Nice session, guys. I'll miss Frankie though. Poor Kimbery's puppy, (he? She?) made me chuckle when it was startled by the shouting.

IHIWMA: "Come for the entertainment, stay for the adorable puppy showcase."

I predict a lot of people mourning the loss of Frankie from the gaming table, hope the New York job works out for her. Who knows, maybe one day she will be hugely successful and we could be buying her salon branded hair products. I can see it now, "Stealth, by Frankie". :) Anyway, does this mean there will be a replacement member summoned in or will that chair remain empty?

Great episode as always, KK was her normal amazing self (as was everyone tbh, although the rolls clearly aren't going their way) and the dog wanted in on the action which was hilarious. My favourite parts would have to be anything involving the weasel. I want to see that thing kick some gnoll arse! hehe

Best of luck to Frankie in New York. I'll miss her on the show.

Another fun episode, great job again.

Connie: "Yeah but I'm wily." Umm... I don't think that word means what you think it means. :)

Omfg.

I just now made the connection.

You're ZAK SMITH!

The guy who drew pics of every page of Gravity's Rainbow! I love your book, on the offchance you read this.

I miss Frankie already. She was the most attractive one of the bunch. IN addition to that she has some of the same gaming styles as me so she gave me a sense of connection to the show.

Good luck Frankie! Also, hitting monsters with dead pets/party members...sometimes you gotta do what you gotta do.

Good luck to Frankie: She'll be missed.

NOOOO! Frankie was my favorite girl in those show.

Well, as long as Kimberly keeps raging it is alright.

I'm gonna miss Frankie along with everyone else, someone needs to step up and replace her as the "I said I did it, and I'm good at everything so I don't need to roll dice!" person in the group.

I am always interested in the dream sequences. They always seem so out there.

I'm going to miss you Frankie, but good luck to you! :)

LMAO - I absolutely loved Connie and Satine acting out opening the gnoll's throat. Awesome stuff.

That's awesome and you should feel awesome. I shampoo maybe once a month, and would still keep a bottle of anything with Frankie's name on it in the house at all times. Who knows when you'll get a burglar and need to say "fuck whoever that is" before flinging something through a half opened door. I would like that thing to be Stealth by Frankie.

Frankie......what can we say? Thank you for everything. Such a character. This was filmed a while ago so hope the job was and is cool and you can cut my hair any bloody day.......as long as I can still turn up to my mums grand piano recitals and the neighours will still invite her round for tea and custard. Anyway, back to the episode. Looks to my half trained eye like another one of them turns. Zak was rolling like a bad boy. (makes up for the medusa episode) but everybody seems to be handling it rather well. (Satine....almost nonchalantly).....(Also why am I using so many brackets in this post?, I really don't know). Bitersweet episode. Miss F will be missed. The rest of you stay out of trouble ok.

Ahh, I'm sad to see Frankie go, but happy for her too. Congrats on the New York gig. You were so much fun to watch.

I loved the lesson about berserker rage at the end. It really made me want to roll one up and then have to take an exam or some other kind of written test in game. Midway through, you get stumped and then you RAGE all over the exam. Oh yeah, paper, desks, pens and pencils flying everywhere, while you're shouting incoherently. That would be a lot of fun to play.

Sorry I got distracted and just meant to say yay dwarves, boo unconsciousness!

Great show, Frankie will be missed. Bobbi seems to be having a good time. Mandy is off in the corner being the strategist on how to best save the party, as per usual. KK is raging and may end up throwing her dearly departed pal at a gnoll. I could dig it. Sorry the dice seemed to hate everyone this round.

Best of luck to Frankie!

Bummer that Frankie left, but hey, she's in my town now. Hope she's enjoying the job and finding some good gaming.

Decent episode: dog tossing, weasel biting, (attempted) throat slicing. D&D just doesn't get any better.

So sad Frankie is gone. I had a crush on her like everyone else in this thread. Glad she got a great job in this economy.

The game certainly will be different without her. Maybe Justine could take her place, she was a lot of fun.

I love all the girls and KK never fails to make me laugh. "I hit with my dog" LOL.

Hope Bobbi gets to kill something soon. I would totally buy "Stealth by Frankie."

Frankie best of luck out there and you'll be missed!

Another great episode...though I do worry about the way the battle is going.

So, Trooper6 MVP for the episode? Connie! For her Ode to Frankie and her excitingly graphic description of how she wanted to kill the gnolls...but especially for how she wanted to chill the gnoll next to her with her awesome display of violence on gnoll 1. Way to try and squeeze out a little situational bonus!

in one of my first games, one of my allys killed a hobgoblin by throwing my dead goblin at it.

also: didint the barbarian used to turn into a wolf when she raged because a werewolf bit her or something? what happened to that?

I miss Frankie. Good Luck in NY!

AWW Frankie. Now who will try to steal everything that's not nailed down. Oh wait, everyone this is D&D where heroics and shoplifting are the same thing.

Congrats on the publishing deal. Looking forward to seeing your campaign notes.

Too bad the damned forsaken dice didn't agree.

I'm glad Frankie got an awesome job in New York. Sucks that she isn't in the show anymore though. Connie needs a new, sneaky lackey to get drunk with!

Alas - I also have my first criticism of the show. Here it is, I'd like to apologise in advance.

You guys mentioned that weasel about five or six times, yet not one of you did a bad Pauly Shore impression. Not one. You kept on setting it up too "The Weasel attacks," "Roll dice for The Weasel." Not a single "buuuudddyy," to be heard. Not once.

Seriously though, I enjoyed this one. Especially KK explaining rage to Bobbi at the end. Keep on rockin' guys! You'll beat these hyena bastards!

ohhh sad, :( Why do great jobs have to be so far away? stupid economy!!!! I'll miss you Frankie! I think it cool they left the chair open in rememberance of Frankie.

I do hope Frankie has an awesome most wonderful life were she is now, but it must suck to leave your awesome friends...
