To this day, I can't find two transcripts of Bridle Gossip that agree on what Pinkie Pie mumbled after "She stole my song!"

I just watched the episode again to get these screencaps, and I still can't make out what she's saying!

I played a barbarian who only "spoke" in growls, grunts and screams, despite his average, non-abysmal intelligence score(11, I think).
This somehow makes him capable of communicating with arctic boars, according to the DM.

Seluku the Great and Fearsome, Emperor of the Glorious Empire of Stone, have poor elocution skills when communicating "verbally" (telepathically) and talk in third person.

Seluku tGaFEotGEoS have such famous quotes as "Seluku have 22 Intelligence-number-thingy! Seluku am smarter than you!" Tactical argument end surprisingly quickly after that.

Hmmm... i'm currently playing a (get this) blind, mute, half demon, missionary.
You get a knock on your door. upon opening it, you see a red skinned demon wearing a dark mask around his mouth, and dirty bandages wrapped around his eyes.
he says nothing, he merely hands you a folded slip of parchment which reads
"Have you accepted the gods into your life?"
he then lowers his mask and smiles, in a Please-dont-slam-the-door-in-my-face, sort of way.

In a short fantasy adventure once we had a player who actually suffered a slight speech impediment from a stroke he had. He used it to his advantage in RPing what I can only describe as a "Hun Combat Butler" :)
He always dressed dapper and his main weapon was a bashing shield that the party fighter swore was a serving tray at some point in its past life. The butler made a pretty effective bard knowledge-wise.

Just don't ask him to sing.

Good times.

...Wait, if he's blind, how did he learn to write?
That's pretty much the only thing I question, everything else I can think up an explanation for.

I'm reminded of this one bandit hideout in Skyrim guarded by a blind bandit. He's reading a book when you sneak up on him and if you managed to take a look at the book... it's pages of blank. XD

his father was a former swords master with a terrible drinking problem. he taught him to fight, and to write. if he hadn't learned then his father likely would have killed him in a drunk'n rage.

Plagiarism is just a specific type of theft.


pla·gia·rism
[pley-juh-riz-uh m, -jee-uh-riz-] noun
1. An act or instance of using or closely imitating the language and thoughts of another author without authorization and the representation of that author's work as one's own, as by not crediting the original author: _It is said that he plagiarized Thoreau's plagiarism of a line written by Montaigne._
Synonyms: appropriation, infringement, piracy, counterfeiting; *theft*, borrowing, cribbing, passing off.

It's the act of stealing an idea, rather than stealing an object.

Just did a test run with the Teenaged CMC and some of their friends to see how the Pony RIFTS Equestria. Just did some test rolls with them and tried to be in character, worked well till I got to Twist, got the giggles trying to stay in character with her(No easy when you are: A- a guy, and B- fighting allergies). Love my new versions of the mostly grown CMC. AB is a mechanic, Scoots is a pilot, Sweetie is a singing DJ, Ruby Pinch grew up to be a magical pony adventurer, Dinky Do becomes a monster hunter and Twist works at Sugar Cube Corner.

I briefly ran (and am revamping) a stone age D&D game. Every tribe has its own simple language, so communication is nearly impossible.
CJT 29th Dec 2012, 9:05 AM edit delete reply
A friend of mine was planning a stone-age RPG at one point, with ultra-simple rules.

There was a stat called "Smart".

You could only use words with a maximum of that number of syllables. And a "Smart" of 1 wasn't ruled out.

I actually thought through how I'd play a character like that for a different campaign (IronClaw character; a lion who exemplified "Wis, not Int"). He knew a few words with more than one syllable, but he had to carefully sound out "lib-rar-y" each time (despite living/working in one).

I should bring a copy of that character sheet to FC this year, now that I think about it.

Speech impediments, eh? I once played a half-orc who talked like Carl from Sling Blade, mm-hmm. Some folks call it an impediment, I call it an accent, mm-hmm.
Dragonflight 29th Dec 2012, 8:54 AM edit delete reply
Probably my favorite speech-challenged person was a barbarian who had an Int of about 5. This was back in the old AD&D 1st edition game system. The GM ruled that the player had only 10 words in his whole vocabulary, and he had to stick with those every time he said something. Every time he leveled, he could add a word, but if it was a silly word, he would get bonus experience if he used it in context.

At about sixth, he added "superfluous" to his vocabulary, and for a while, he used it pretty much all the time. Although there were a few funny moments, when he actually used it properly in a conversation with NPC's and the whole group would laugh themselves silly.

Akouma 29th Dec 2012, 9:21 PM edit delete reply

I've never played a character who was actively, dumb, but poor vocabularies are something I do all the time. There's Seluku, who is mentioned above. He was a Shardmind, so my explanation for how he joined the party mid-story was because he literally manifested out of a rock in the dungeon they were doing, which meant that despite his naturally-strong intellect he didn't know any words.

Then there was Dugdor, who just had an 8 Int and it was funny.

And then there was Al'Deck of Many Things, who knows a lot of BIG words, but not a lot of... Earth words. At one point, a party member returned from a brief trip to Africa. He sees he's returned and asks "Ah, Jove, how was aw-FREE-kah?" Basically, it takes him some effort to grasp the proper pronunciation of words he would be well versed in were he born on Earth. He still places the emphasis on the wrong syllable in "mutant," much to the confusion of the people he talks to.

Speech impediments... Speech impediments...

I actually just started running a Pathfinder game where the players insisted on hiring a bard to follow them and chronicle their tales for adventure. Said bard was actually the drunkard brother of the starting town's innkeep, who HAD been planned as a mere one-shot character. The players clearly had a different idea, and have found Erlun (the bard)'s drunken slurring to be hilarious, especially when he sings. Naturally, they're keeping him around.

Come to think of it, one of the players actually risked getting knocked down to 0 health in order to knock Erlun away from a pit trap. He even thought it was spiked (it wasn't), but he took the dive anyway. That kind of dedication to a semi-random NPC...

I remember one character I made -I was feeling extremely silly at that point - who I gave a stereotipical Canadian Accent to. He said 'Ey?' after nearly every sentance, if not every word.
THen said character got cursed to only be able to speak Pig Latin, and later a curse that caused him to lose track of his sentances.
I once went 15 minutes with that character saying an endless string of 'Ey?'
Ravenscroft RAVEN 30th Dec 2012, 9:18 AM edit delete reply
Which is particularly bad because USAers stereotypically say "ey", while Canadians say "eh". (Look it up on Urban Dictionary if you don't believe me).

VERY confused Canuck there.


My worst speech'd character was a ninja one who would insist on speaking in Tanka poetry. Made it really hard in combat to give alerts or advice, with none of the obvious benefits of speaking in Haiku or rhyme.

My favorite character with a speech 'impediment' was a 3.5 rogue that I played heavy on the skills with (maxed out INT). I role-played him as someone who only spoke in single syllable words; his reasoning being that he didn't want to confuse anyone else by using long words that they might not know. For the most part I did pretty well; around half of the sessions I got through without a mistake, and the other weeks I only messed up on one or two words. The really fun part about it was that only the DM was in on it; nobody else ever suspected that I was going out of my way to talk in such a limited mode.

Mooncalf 30th Dec 2012, 3:19 AM edit delete reply
I had a player who played a psionic cat once. He couldn't talk, so he used his psicrystal to communicate telepathically. However, whenever he tried to 'talk' to NPCs, their usual reaction was to flee, screaming "Aaah! Voice in my head! Demon!" The guy deserved it, though; he'd whined excessively when I wanted to give him +1 Level Adjustment (being Tiny with low Str and high Dex is not a disadvantage when you're a caster) and I hate when players oppose the GM's decrees too much.

Another time I played a bard in a Planescape adventure, and we had ended up in an Oriental Adventures setting where only my casting Tongues allowed us to communicate with the locals. A while in, when we were assisting in an assault on a necromancer, our cleric decided he needed some communication skills and asked me to teach him three simple words ("Yes, "halt" and "charge", if I remember correctly). What he didn't know was that I had recently spent a skill point to learn their whole language. Nor that he could do the same. He never noticed that I chatted away freely without casting Tongues while he resorted to pidgin and his very limited vocabulary to get anything done. Boy was he pissed when he finally clued in...

Closest thing I had to a character with a speech impediment was my steampunk cleric boy who eventually got the ability to speak any language, humanoid or animal, from the goddess of technology. Not that he knew it at the time. He thought everyone was speaking English, but after hearing a new language would automatically lapse into speaking it, to the annoyance of the party members who wouldn't have a clue what he was saying. I ended up making signs to hold up with various languages written on them and had much fun switching between them.

I believe I was asked to do an Alt script thingy...
(DM = Dungeon Master, TS = Twilight, AJ = Applejack, RD = Rainbow Dash, RA = Rarity, FS = Fluttershy, PP = Pinkie Pie)

Winter Wrapup
DM: "Okay, we first begin with you Twilight. This is the first day of Spring and it is up to the pony community to change the weather."

TS: "How does this work exactly?"
DM: "What does? Changing the weather?"
TS: "Yeah, do we get all the druids together to cast a big weather spell or...?"
DM: "No, you just uh... sweep out all the snow and wake the animals..."
AJ: "To where are we all sweepin' this snow to? I reckon Nature don't exactly have a giant bathroom rug."

DM: "We're RPing talking ponies with magical abilities, let's not overthink this. In a way, it is like sweeping it all under a rug. The act of the community shoveling off the snow, cracking the pond ice, etc. is what causes the seasonal change. It's like magic, but no spells need to be cast per se."

TS: "Oookay, well then I'll get up before dawn to round up everyone."
RD: "I'm not getting up THAT early!"
TS: "But we have an entire town to clean up! There's only six of us."
RA: "My dear, we have an entire village of friendly and hardworking pony folk-"

RD: "You know, morons."
RA: "AHEM. Villagers that we can organize together in cleaning up Winter."
AJ: "More like minions the way you sell it."
RA: "Shh!!"
PP: "Besides, according to lore Celestia raises the sun. Right DM?"
DM: "That's correct."
PP: "So obviously, if the sun isn't up, then Celestia's not awake. And if Celestia's not awake, then it isn't the first day of Spring yet. And if it isn't Spring, we could be destroying the entire ecosystem by bring on an early warm front to Equestria at which point we'd all be hunted down like wild Timberwolves!"

DM: "..."

PP: "Haaaa!!Haaaa!!"
DM: "Thank you, peanut gallery."
AJ: "Alright, so let's get er done. I'm going to wrastle up the strongest stallions to help plow all this snow off the ground."

FS: "I'll um... help wake up the animals. If that's okay with you?"
DM: "Sounds good. Rarity?"
RA: "Oh please, I'm a sophisticated unicorn. I do not wish to participate in such crude manual labor."

AJ: "Oh quite being so prissy. I'm sure there's something you can help with."
DM: "There is. Rarity, when the birds come back north, they'll need nests to live in."
RA: "Well, I suppose I could use my sewing skills to make nests."
DM: "Excellent. Dash, what will you do?"
RD: "Ugh, cleaning up winter doesn't sound like an adventure... wait, what's the weather like up in the sky?"

DM: "Heavily overcast since last night's light snow."
RD: "I attack the clouds!"
DM: "Uh, what?"
RD: "I have cloud manipulation as a racial feature, right? So, I'll attack the clouds and clear them out! Bet I can clear the sky in 10 rounds flat!"

DM: "Well, that kind of makes sense. Pinkie?"
PP: "I put on some skates and go skating on the pond."
DM: "So, you're not going to help with cleaning Winter?"
PP: "On the contrare! From personal experience I know that skating on ice creates little cracks on the surface. I'll skate around to work up a web of fissures and then we can pound the lake to break all the ice up into small chunks and fish them out. Thereby, the lake will no longer be a frozen surface."

DM: "Wow, that actually makes sense in context. Good job!"

TS: "Not helping."
DM: "On the other hand, you can try something light such as helping Rarity sew nests."

TS: "Sounds easy enough. Uh, I don't have a sewing skill though."
RA: "You can default any crafting skill my dear. You have a good INT score for it."

PP: *Rolls a 1* "Awesome! I even have a song idea for this."
DM: "I'm sure you do, but Twilight collides with you, knocking the air out of your lungs. You both end up on the far side of the lake, out of breath. And unable to sing."

PP: "Hey..."
DM: "Sorry, you can botch a saving throw."
RD: "Bwahaha, this is too funny. You're all getting practically TPk'd by Winter."

DM: "Okay, you have me there. So what are you proposing?"
TS: "Okay, I gather up all the townsfolk. I want everyone to use Aid Another on one pony to perform a task. Say, plowing the fields of snow. Each pony gives that one player a +2 bonus to their skill check and you can't botch a check on a 1. So even with a poor roll, what's the bonus of an entire town using aid Another on one check?"

DM: "...oh for the love of Luna's left hoof."

AJ: "Brilliant! We can't fail the checks now. I recon we can even split up the townsfolk into teams and speed up the process. Pegasi can assist Dash attacking the clouds, all the stallions plow, the mares can help get the nests put together- Twilight, this is genius!"

Aid another is a funny thing. By the rules, you have to be in a square adjacent to the one performing the check. Clearly, liberties should be taken for grand-scale activities when it comes to placement of the assistants, but the bonus should be just as limited. A good +16 bonus should be enough for most tasks anyway.

Entertaining write-up, Digo. Excellent use of the song.

Now to look up the section that specifically mentions that utility powers should never affect more than the party and a couple of allies, even when description suggests otherwise.

Thanks :3
I'm sure I abused the rules a bit, but what party has ever gone through an adventuring career without a little abuse in their favor? ;)
And we could abuse that +16 a bit more if we count pegasi hovering a square above and adjacent to the player performing the skill task...
