As of yesterday, you may notice a few changes on the site. I've switched from a linear archive to a chapter-based archive (which meant going through and manually assigning old comics to chapters). The dropdown navigation menu will now show you a slice of the chapter you're in and link to the beginnings of every other chapter, and the Archive page (link at the top) will now show the whole linear archive with chapter headings, rather than having two separate archives by Episode and Page. This should drastically decrease load times on the site, now that I'm not loading up links for the entire huge archive for two dropdowns on every page.

Additionally, ComicFury has implemented a mobile-friendly infinite scrolling view mode for all their webcomics, and I've added links to that view for this comic on the top and bottom of every page!

In-game weddings

I had a great one! We were currently at war trying to take our empire back from Oni, and my character, an Aasimar paladin of Shizuru (Sun, emperor, and paladin goddess). My fiancé was GMing, and sometimes he likes to throw love interests to his players. In this case, an emperor Kirin who had basically lost most of himself, and had to remain human. He had also resurrected my character at one point. Wedding was great! We got gifts from players, NPCs, and even one god that I seriously didn’t get along with. It was a nice break from angsty, political resistance stuff.

When the party got drunk they were apparently married by the time they woke up. ...The priest was a very CE NPC. One character was married to his stalker. The warforged was married to a toaster. I forget the other ones.

My first long game lasted for about 3 years, and ended with a triple wedding. Two of the player characters had fallen for each other, and then two players had picked up NPC crushes. The wizard and the bard were one of those couples that bicker continuously. The monk rescued a ninja from a city frozen in time, and she was quite grateful. Our cleric was a reformed bandit, and through a complicated series of events, ended up rescuing the mirror universe version of her former boyfriend who got executed for murder. So we had the quarreling couple, the couple with a 500-year age gap, and the couple where one of them was commonly mistaken for a dead murderer.

It was a pretty sweet wedding :p

One game I was in, my PC and another's were a couple almost from the beginning, and as neither one wanted to make the other a widow, they decided to postpone their marriage until after their adventure - which meant the romance kept building up through the entire multi-year-IRL campaign. This resulted in a non-trivial wedding in the epilogue session, with people from throughout the campaign showing up. IIRC, the mayor of the main/base town officiated, and they flew off in the party airship afterward (now that it was no longer needed to save the world).

This is a story I heard second-hand from my college GM, so forgive me if some details are vague or inconsistent. It's been several years.

My GM was once Gming for a group that contained two high level casters - I believe a wizard and a sorcerer. During one of their adventures, the party discovered a powerful magical item of some kind, which both the wizard and sorcerer wanted. An argument ensued over it, but since they couldn't split the item, it eventually went to the wizard.

The sorcerer, not happy with this turn of events, hatched what he thought was a cunning plan. First thing he did was put a ton of skill points into profession: lawyer (this was in pathfinder). The second thing he did was use magic to disguise himself as an attractive female NPC. Whenever the sorcerer had to leave the party for one reason or another, he would change into his NPC guise and set about wooing the wizard. This worked successfully, and in short order the wizard married the NPC, not realizing it was the sorcerer in disguise. The plan was that the sorcerer would later divorce the wizard and use their lawyering skill to win the magical item in the divorce proceedings.

HOWEVER, the wizard and his "NPC" had adopted two plucky and adorable orphans, the sorcerer didn't have it in him to put those kids through a divorce. He eventually came clean to the wizard and admitted the whole plan, and the two decided to continue the marriage for the sake of the kids. And that was how my old GM had to watch two straight guys do their best to roleplay a marriage between their characters, all because of a petty squabble over a magic item.


TL;DR: Sorcerer tricks a fellow PC into marriage in order to steal a magical item for him, ends up staying in the marriage for the sake of the kids they adopted.

***steal a magical item FROM him. Dratted typo.

Our Druid got married, in a political union, to the queen of the Dryads. Coincidentally, the GM had just picked up the Dungeon World supplement for running a wedding.

We caroused. We made useful connections. And the Ranger made a bad roll...

With the player's consent, he drank too much, blacked out, and woke up the next morning next to a dryad, with an engagement ring made of enchanted wood bound to the skin around his finger.

That dryad never did see her fiancé again. Rangers can be very stealthy.

I got momentarily confused when i saw "posted in A Canterlot Wedding" link, but I decided to chalk it to never having noticed it before. I do be like that sometimes.

Nice addition!

The new format is working great. My own load times are more than ten times faster, so thanks for that

+1 on the whole chapter organization, that's always nice when discovering a new, long-running comic.

And I never noticed about the load times specifically, but maybe this is why this comic in particular would occasionally sort of time out when my connection was really slow (like when the internet company decides to cut off our internet, because they forgot to send us a bill this month, *sigh*).

Y'know, in all honesty, this is the sort of thing is an opportunity any tailor or seamstress would kill for, so Rarity's reaction is fully understandable.
