The "I've Already Won" villainous monologue is a classic and fun to deliver, but it can be a bit disconcerting when you weren't exactly prepared for it to be serious.

Our Vampire: the Masquerade Spudventure has concluded! I think it's one of our finest recent mini-campaigns. I'm really happy with the work done on it and the contributions of the players and viewers. Give it a listen now that the finale is up!

That feeling when your players fall for the villain's evil plans.

Digo Dragon
The D&D party recently befriended a red dragon after undoing a curse that trapped her as an elf for several weeks. Later down the road of adventure, an evil general enacted a coup to take the capitol city of a neighboring kingdom and the party needed a way to sneak into the walled city. They called in a favor of their red dragon friend-- they asked her to land on the castle walls and monologue. She gleefully agreed.

The dragon put on her Sunday spell buffs to keep the city guard from hurting her with arrows and she proceeded to give her best cheesy evil villain monologue while the party scaled the rampart on another section far away from the attention.

That's my new favorite use of a dragon

That is literally one of the absalute best uses of a dragon favor I've heard.

Weird bit of brain-association, but... whenever i see this scene, my brain reminds me that many breed of female buddies have a big snuggly weird floof around their neck called a Dewlap, and makes them look extra floof when sleeping... and i have no idea what it's biologically FOR... kinda assume it's extra girth to help cover babies.

Why Chrysalis gloating makes me think of that, i will never freaking know.

According to my research, the dewlap is actually a loose flap of skin on the front of the neck. In dogs, it may serve several purposes: protecting the jugular, insulating the trachea in cold weather, and even facilitating the perception of smells.

According to Wikipedia, female rabbits use fur from the dewlap to line a nest for her babies. As for why Chrysalis makes you think of it... maybe it's that little V-line that her neck-chitin meeting her torso-chitin makes? You can't see it very well on this page, but it's caught my eye before in the show itself.

Huh, maybe so?

My only idea was maybe someone brought it up while I was trying to watch the episode, and it got subconsciously associated without me actually remembering it... But yours might be a little more realistic?

Why is the only thing popping into my head: "While you were learning how to spell your name, I was learning how to conquer galaxies!"

Because you were unfortunate enough to have been exposed to a very bad movie?

I love Rarity's line.

It goes perfectly with that expression, too.
