As a DM, there's nothing more frustrating in the short term and ultimately beneficial to the richness of the campaign in the long term than one of the players making a really good point.

Very, very good point. Also, wonder if the party is going to check up on apple bloom before they do the crazy plan to get the ticket.

Getting too close to those puppy eyes is not for the weak-hearted. That's a Class 1 HNNNNNG danger right there. :3

Apple Bloom doesn't even need a box.

The last roundup is first. AJ's player failed all the solo rolls, and now AJ is super depressed.

It can be a curse of the dice. I get frustrated when the probability is not followed whereas the dice will not roll above it's half-value mark.

"As the DM, I have alot of respect for the players.
But this one time when they ______, that level went down.
However, when they ______, it went up."
Fill in one or both blanks.

When they took two hours to solve a mystery that an NPC had outright told them the answer to at the beginning of the session, that level went down (a little, it was still good roleplaying)

However, when they talked their way out of a combat encounter, it went way up. They encountered an impostor pretending to be a goddess of a group of gullible primitives, talked her into going legit, protected her from the fallout of her actions and secured her continuing rule on the condition that she embody the virtues she had pretended to endorse before. It was weird, but everyone was happy, and it was not an outcome I had thought possible.

Hold tight, the campaign is going off the tracks.

"Twilight, what did you do this time?"
"Nothing! We was wondering where she was."

Player curiosity can really knock a plot off its tracks.

Is it just me, or is Fluttershy stressing "it" instead of "is"?

Not just you.
It and small is tilted

all of the dialogue is in italics, except "is" to put emphasis on that.

*Spoiler Free (100% this time) Review*

(I'm keeping it short and sweet because reasons)

BrotherHooves Social

good episode overall and to avoid any controversy I will say this "What wasn't said in this episode shows once again Equestria is far more progressive than our world"

1. Peter New made a small fortune on this episode

2. So many Dawww moments

3. If you watch the whole episode and listen to everything said there is no way you could possibly misinturprit the message of the episode -_- (sorry something on a page I manage got to me and this is my passive aggressive response)

any way on to the next episode which is I'm not sure but Hopefully Twilight gets to finally do something ^_^

Well, so much for that story arch, at least it's not possible to ask for a refund.

I'm happy to see that Dash hasn't said anything about her plan going to waste, and is more enthralled by her friend going missing.

*Looks at 5th panel* Time for a feels recharge before going any further with this story.

A skilled GM can recycle unused ideas into new ones. It might become relevant later.

You should've used the advanced sadness applebloom from when they lose the bet with the Flim Flam brothers. That's easily one of the best faces in the show. Though I suppose it would've been rather low resolution.

Know what would be funny? If the next page is all Applejack panels reacting/answering the DM's texts/calls and getting some kind of evil look on her face as she suggests a course of action.
