OK, I'll make a more in-depth comment after I watch it again, but my first impression was that Satine giggling was the cutest thing I've heard...possibly ever.

I actually did a little fist pump at the beginning after Frankie made her roll. She's the funniest person at the table and has a similar 'shoot 'em in the back' play style to what I do.

That was fine Medusa dispatching from everybody, well played.

When this whole thing started, Connie was timid enough to speak well below what one might consider reasonable volume in any situation. There was even talk of an anxiety dream. By now we've seen her take hold of the reigns of the moment and run like the wind, all while politely telling the GM to get off her nuts.

That's a special thing.

Likewise, I heard a threat that one can only hear uttered at a D & D game or a demolition: "I'm still doing math." It's just two steps away from "I swear to God, I'll pistol whip the next guy that stops me from finishing this derivative!" Makes me feel at home.

My computer blew up at the weekend so just ran over to a mates house to watch this episode on the pretence that I wanted to talk to them. (I don't want to talk to them shhhhhhh...don't tell them) That was awsome! Medusa?......what medusa?. Well done everybody, and you all seemed so nonchalant about it to, lol. Nice work. Was kind of expecting some big showdown dialogue. But no! Just shoot them. I like the way you did it better. Hope to be watching next week on my new computer. Good show everybody, good show:)

Man, when reading the title I thought the complete reverse of what happened would happen. Liked the 'mike' moment.

OH! And before my nyquil kicks in, I'd just like to point out that I had faith in Frankie's "fuck whoever that is" THE WHOLE WEEK! You go girl!

Wow, you guys dominated that Medusa! Good work.

And I loved when Zak pointed out Frankie's little "microphone" moment, lol - poor Frankie, she was so excited. And also Satine's little hand motions around her head to simulate snake hair. Funny stuff.

I didn't, and I will accept that I was wrong this time.

Also, didn't Perseus decapitate Medusa with the ability to see her because of his shield?

Yeah, I thought that was the case too. I thought that Medusa could look at herself and her sisters without a problem. It was only a D&Dism that they were petrified by mirrors. Not that I am complaining, but I heard that Perseus used the reflective shield to find her, then cut off her head.

Paging through all my Greek mythology, and ya. But D&D has Medusa as a monster and not queen of the Gorgons (or mother), so you can only take it as far as you can throw Gygax.

I love, love, love this series. I look forward to seeing the next installment each week.

The music in this episode was atrocious. Usually it has a cool metal vibe, but the selection this time just sucked IMO.

The music aside, it was another great episode I liked the twist set up by the title. It also got me thinking bad things were about to happen.

I love Frankie's glasses. What a fun and memorable accessory. I hope she never changes those.

Such a great end to the battle. I hope they heal Justine's head.

Hmm, how do I get through this post without mentioning the M word?... Let's find out. I love how Frankie reacts to realizing who is on the other side of the door and the decision to pick the turquoise dice, because lets face it, it's bound to be the superior one.

KK was fantastic as always although I did feel sorry for Justine having a snake pulled off, even if she's not a permanent member. I guess she'll lose no sleep over the death of her mother though, speaking of which, the M...other was despatched quite quickly, I was expecting a M...ajor figure like that to be a much bigger fight, with at least some damage occurring on the players side.

Also, Satine's M...agnificent impression was fantastic. Does this mean that the 3rd page of text will become redundant now? anyway, woohoo I made it right the way through without mentioning the Medusa..... oh bugger.

I want to know the name of your cute dog because up until now I've always been hoping for "a guest appearance by Chunky Chihuahua."

It's not fat! It's just fluffy!

"Ahh! Feet!" Frankie is fricking hilarious.

Also, for some reason, Satine really made me laugh at 0:36.

Oh man.. watching this reminded me how Fraking delicious that Birthday cake I was eating was. My neighbor made me a red velvet cake with extra vanilla pudding in the batter. Musta been the day after my birthday... Because the cake didn't last very long and I ate pretty much the whole thing.

Yeah, I distinctly remember not getting any of that cake.

Thank you for discussing the cake! I was going to ask what it was and if it was delicious.

I like the snacks you guys have at the table. We used to have gummy worms, but after spending several rounds not being able to understand each other because we'd all decided to go with illithid faces, we've stuck with the more traditional Doritos and beer.

Loved this episode. Glad to see you kick some medusa butt. I loved the mic, the re-enactment, the use of dead companions and of course the snacks.

Alright peeps! Great episode...and sometimes I just love a super fast battle.

MVP? Frankie, for the turquoise die, the microphone, and her crossbow to the medusa!

Fixed.

I've worn those glasses. "Accessory" is not the word.

I'll have to try gummy worms next time I'm going to roleplay a mind flayer.

In my experience though, beer and D&D don't go well together. It's fine at first, it brings us more timid geeks out of our respective shells - but a few pints in and dungeon masters always manage to get yelled at and then characters fall down pits.

My Orc fighter is probably still down in that fucking pit.

So after all that hype; Two character deaths making it by the sliver of your bones through a goblin army, attacked by a homunculus, a blob, some other stuff I'm forgetting, finally get to the Medusa and...boom...done in two rounds. That's how you win these type of games, man! Awesome job everyone!

Yeah, it's funny how after a party gets wiped (or nearly so) trying to be overly clever, the next time around suddenly it's all "fuck 'em--just kill 'em all."

I have to ask, though, were you expecting more of a "boss" battle, Zak? Or were you hoping for conversation, etc.? Just curious as to how you thought (and/or hoped) it would go down. The gang was in a very no-nonsense mood with the quiet-but-determined Frankie leading the charge.

I know a fight with a medusa is rarely going to last long. One side or the other ends it fast. The real adventure is the fear and anticipation surrounding everything leading up to the medusa.

Just watched this and I really am pleasantly surprised, it's actually very entertaining. Looking forward to the next episodes.

Also you get bonus points for using music by The Sword.

Man, watching all these episodes makes me wish my friends were more open to playing D&D with me; it's been like 8 years since I played. Of course when I was playing, there was scant pretty ladies to be found.

I pretty much ignored this series, when it first came on.
But now after having watched all episodes in one go, I must admit that it is really entertaining and interesting.
I think the first few episodes, weren't that great, for a reason I can't put my finger on. Later on it got a lot more funnier.
Zak is doing a good job and I like the plot he brewed up and how he has like randomized lists for everything, so he himself doesn't know it in advance.
Also the girls... or since they seem to read the comments fairly often: you girls are all pretty cool and seem to have a good time.
So I'll definitely will watch future episodes.

In this case, it seemed to hone them to a pretty sharp edge. I really enjoy the way you don't anticipate the outcomes much, but just go with the flow. I've seen far too many DMs that are always nudging outcomes down the path they desire. Kudos!

First time watcher. This makes me miss be 13-14 and 20-23 when I used to play D&D second ed. and then White Wolf series.
I'll go back to your day one and start watching to get caught up.

I'll also chime in saying I watched the first couple episodes ages ago and rolled my eyes at it so hard I got a nosebleed, but have since been converted and pilfered a myriad of details from a great dm and envied what is some pretty dang good players.
