After building up to this for more than half a decade, it's kind of weird to now write dialogue from the perspective of the FiD Mane Six, who have no idea who this is or what is going on. A fresh slate on Discord's intro, who would've thought?

Hey, if Darths&Droids can give the Vader reveal a new and interesting twist...

I can hardly wait to see how you handle the Element Corruption bits.

Inter-party arguments? I mean in my current group that's pretty much how it feels like every other session. :o

The issue with inter party arguments is, in my group, they turn into bloodbaths with either the luckiest or most prepared the last one alive.

...and the rest saw their better: Rainbow Dash with bloodstained feathers.

I suppose I can count myself lucky that our conflicts never end in PVP. They end in the party splitting up for a while off to do their own thing.

All except for the all-Evil player party. I think everyone tries that at some point. We managed to get six play sessions before everyone in the group took a contract to kill every *other* member of the group. I don't think anyone survived.

Well, imagine us readers, who hoped for so long that this day will come and be almost as clueless as the mane six.


I can't wait!

The guest GM is actually making the call from the guest bedroom of the house where he's been hiding this entire time.

THE CALL IS COMING FROM INSIDE THE HOUSE!

having mostly pöayed online through Duscord (heh), tech issues, the bane of our existance

Oh boy, tech issues. That takes me back. We had one campaign where a player moved halfway through, but still wanted to be part of the game. This was back near the dawn of time when videoconferencing was nowhere near as stable as it is now. It got to the point where the in-person players would joke about taking bets for when the video feed would cut.

Dang, I'm looking forward to seeing how well Discords plays out.

On an unrelated note I've been rereading the archive and just got to the part about Twilight's problems with her brother. The thought struck me; "maybe Zephyr isn't Fulttershy's brother."

Oh, yes, this is perfect. I can absolutely hear John de Lancie chewing the scenery already.

(And seriously, after hearing him as Alarak? He's /so good/ and has /so much fun/ large-hamming as a villian. It has been concurred that we need to figure out some way for him to be allowed to voice Megatron.)

I love how Discord is already being presented as feeling justified in what he's doing and will do. "I DON'T TURN PONIES TO STONE." Considering that's an entire trope - and a nasty one, "And I must scream" - I can't deny he's got a bit of a point (even if he did bring it on himself by refusing to tone down his "fun" no matter how it hurt those around him. The stone thing didn't just HAPPEN, after all...)
