Rarity: Detecting shades of Maleficent here.
DM: ...Let's call that serendipity.

This week on Spudventures we played a one-shot from the Starter Set of Tails of Equestria, the official MLP RPG! (Well, it was more like playing a choose-your-own-adventure book, but we still made a lot of fun out of it!)

Maaaan, people like AJ's character are the worst. "Skip over the cool set piece, and let me get back to dice and being a meta jerk please, sigh."

AJ's line seemed more like the player was getting squicked by the DM's description, not that she was bored. But I might be misreading that.

Agreed. She was definitely starting to get squicked and wanted to cut off the description before it could go any farther.

I'm kind of surprised she was the squicked one. I expected either Fluttershy or Twilight. Ah well, time to roll initiative.

AJ didn't want to listen to descriptions of wings and flesh melting off, yes. She also might've been trying to preemptively protect Fluttershy and Twilight.

Strangely, that last panel is probably the cutest look Chrysalis ever showed. The big eyes, the mane blowing to the side...

It's a lot more cute when it's not moving. It's seriously creepy during the actual show, I think.

I've always found her frickin' adorable at all times, personally. I love her design so, soooo much!

Definitely shows that Lauren Faust influence in the art style.

Did anyone else think Chrysalis was getting just a touch of a magical girl transformation sequence, cuteness included?

Chrysalis is the natural opponent of Cadance isn't she? A love sucker skilled in deceiving people out of their love for her own ends against a pony with the power to spread all kinds of love and in a relationship meant to exemplify true romantic love. Oddly, Chrysalis wanted revenge against many people, in her future comic and show appearances, but never really Cadance and Shining Armor aside from when she kidnapped all the main characters.

Throw in Sombra as the depression and fear villain, and the task of her leading a new out of time Kingdom she's never seen before, and I feel like Cadance and the Crystal Empire almost had the initial pieces to set up their own show.

Well, there's another bit of animation I didn't notice until Spud captured it - Chrysalis with feathers bursting away from her, for all the world as though it really was a physical disguise rather than a glamour. The feathers don't morph, they come off.

She enabled physics on the individual feathers for a more realistic flap. When she dismissed her full-body disguise, the feathers were the last to go, and they obeyed physics for the last time.

How many remember when the 'Cutie Mark Crusaders' commented about this scene many pages ago?
