Between The Best Night Ever, The Return of Harmony, School Raze, and A Canterlot Wedding, it's been like nonstop season finales for a while now, I just realized. I guess I can't help escalating to where all the juicy action and intrigue are.

Anyway, some life(tm) happened this week, if y'all want to keep up with what's going on with me lately.

Okay, looks like the new comment form has been giving people trouble, so I've added a link to the old comment window as well, just in case. EDIT: In further cleanup, I've put the new comment form behind a button toggle so it's not immediately demanding a huge chunk of blank real estate on your way down to the comments section. That should close this chapter of technical difficulties for now.

Had to go to the mobile side to leave this.
Let's see if I'm right.

ANW here.

Hey NewbieSpud. Until someone leaves a comment on the mobile site, no one can comment on the regular side.

You might want to look at that.

That wasn't necessary for me.

That is the experience I have had. When there isn't a comment yet, the text boxes to leave a comment don't populate. I was trying to figure it out for almost an hour Thursday before I just gave up.

Alright, thanks for the corroboration. I've re-added the link to the old pop-out comment window. That should make sure everyone can still comment while this is figured out.

Any way, Story time.
Just going to come out and say it.

I think we can all agree, messing with Nobles is fun.
So bring in those comedies.

I am hoping for some regular "slice-of-life" eps coming up next. The excitement is pretty awesome, but I dunno if Shining and Cadance should return right away for the Crystal Empire adventure.

Thanks for linking the old system. Whether people like the change or not, now everyone should be happy

"Between 'The Best Night Ever', 'The Return of Harmony', 'School Raze', and 'A Canterlot Wedding', it's been like nonstop season *finales* for a while now..."

*singing* One of these is not like the other...

The plan isn't terrible... but plans like this where you throw yourself under the bus? Make sure your team is informed on the next steps because otherwise you'll end up sold a slave down river and have to save yourself in nothing but your underwear and a garden rake. 9_9

At least mages can pose as a normie and then unleash hellfire on the slavers. Fighters are rather useless without their weapons, though Monks punch a bunch no matter how little they have so they might be the best class to be when enslaved.

Depending on the system, mages might be useless without a spellbook - sorcerers, on the other hoof, can drop fire with just a few hours' rest and maybe a pinch of bat guano.

And with proper spell selection, or the right feats, you might not even need the guano.

And some people say sorcerers are inferior to wizards.
CCC 29th Sep 2020, 4:55 AM edit delete reply
Yeah! Just because a wizard isn't locked into a small subset of carefully-picked spells over the long term and can learn new spells without needing to level up? Just because he takes an academic approach and can craft any magic item he wants with enough time and money, and just because he thinks and prepares his way through obstacles instead of bluffing with his charisma?

Tut! Not only can the sorcerer sling more spells per day than the wizard, the sorcerer also looks better while doing so. Clearly superior!

"You have a lot to think about" is one of my favourite lines from the entire show. The look on Celestia's face is perfect, and Twilight's reaction is so hopeless.

Of course, Celestia might simply be playing her role perfectly, and too well for the PCs to detect. If she wants to fool Cadance, she needs to be able to fool them too.

(Logging in still not working? sheesh).

So anyone want to place bets that Celestia is the compromised one somehow?

(Really need to rewatch this.)

Jeez, Celly. She is your brightest student and the savior of Equestria!

And isn't that frightening?
