About The Show

Here's what I can tell you about the show:

-It'll be called "I Hit It With My Axe".

-It's for a website called The Escapist, which also publishes James Maliszewski's column. They apparently heard about this blog and decided to get in touch.

-There'll be a new episode every week for a year.

-It'll be like us actually playing D&D in a continuing campaign you can follow. It's not scripted so I guess it's a "reality show" but unlike other reality shows, it is funny.

-So, yeah, that means that I have to run two campaigns, one for when we film (so it's easy to follow on the show), and one for our normal games. The filmed episodes pick up after this session.

-For those keeping score: I won't be posting Actual Play reports from the filmed games (that'd ruin the surprise). I will still be posting Actual Play reports from the unfilmed campaign, which starts here.

-The cast is the usual suspects: Me, Mandy Morbid, Satine Phoenix, Kimberly Kane, Connie, and Frankie (four porn people, a stripper, and a hairdresser)--plus a rotating guest slot of our friends who are newbies or people who don't live in LA, and they'll be models or adult industry types--the guest for the first adventure is Sasha Grey, the guest for the second adventure is Justine Joli.

-The rest either is a secret or I don't know.

  1. And yet again the escapist shows its quality :) (in the best way possible).

    Congrats again on your upcoming show, and looking forward to it.

    Question - will it be "scripted" or is it just "buch of peeps playing, and a camera happens to be there"?

  5. Episode length is still up in the air? You know, I'd also like to see a "highlight" reel (compare to a trailer or teaser)-- like, maybe I don't have 30 minutes to an hour to watch, but I do have 2 minutes.

  9. This sounds like a lot of fun to watch. Finally a reality show with enough fantasy to keep me entertained.

    Plus, what red-blooded American male doesn't want to watch 5+ hot chicks play table top RPGs? Count me in.

  10. I hope that when your show takes off and people start flooding this place that you don't forget your online friends who have been reading you since you started!

    I'm kidding, and that sounded gay anyway. Sorry.

  12. This sounds brilliant. I'll make sure the Escapist-loving gamer-guys I've been casually mentioning your blog to find out about it. ;)

  13. Yay, it's awesome and not lame! I should have never doubted.

    Congrats.

  14. I'm a big fan of this idea! :)

    How similar will it be to Dungeon Majesty? (eg. Will you be mixing in any "in game" scenes with the recorded game sessions?)

  17. Sounds kickass. I mostly only hit the Escapist for Zero Punctuation, but this sounds like another winner. I'll keep an eye out for it.
