The theme today is coming to understand and work with your limitations.

In other Spud-brand tabletop news, we just had the climactic finale of our Root campaign, Ironclaw Infiltrators, and it's available for listening!

"Finale".

As in, are the players planning to end the campaign (and thus, is Spud planning to end Friendship is Dragons) with the next session?

I so hope it isn't the case.

The one might not lead to the other. I mean, there is another set of characters the show itself kinda switches focus to after a while. I could see Twilight's player switching to, say, Yona, out of a desire to not have any campaign-derailing powers.

Why would anyone ever willingly give up the power to derail a campaign? Better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it :p

The final boss fight with Discord, the finale of the Discord arc, is what they mean.

I'm probably gonna keep going.

Spud has already said that he plans to use Alicorn!Twilight in the future, so there's that. Not that his plans can't have changed since then, but he hasn't given any indication that FiD is ending (for which we are all very grateful!).

I'm so nerv-cited for this next part! You can tell it's going to be so epic, but that also means it's going to be nail-biting, edge-of-your-seat unpredictable!

Keep up the good work Spud!

Glad to see there's a bit from Crystal Empire as a palate cleanser before the Magical Mystery Cure.

I wonder if this is gonna be a mashup of Crystal Empire-Keep Calm and Flutter On-Magical Mystery Cure. Instead of DEFEATING Discord, the party gets their mission from the Princesses, goes home, gets their marks switched, switches them back, makes friends with Discord instead of returning him to stone, THEN Twilight gets promoted.

That seems like it'd work, we just need to get Dr.Sombrero taken care of, because once Twilight Acorns up, most of that arc can't be used.

He comes back in a later season, doesn't he?

Yes, but it will lose a lot of importance if they do not do the Crystal Empire plot now... Because Twilights not an Alicorn in it, and this Arcs title is from the episode(shoulda been two...) where Twilight ruined the sh- I mean, Ascended to Alicorn Status.

In hindsight the Twilicorn hate was kinda silly, her personality barely changed after it...

In fact THAT is a more legitimate thing to be bothered with XD
