One of my favorite low-key tricks in this webcomic series is to change the context of generic expressions from non-focus characters in a shot. Like the smiles from Fluttershy and Twilight in the last panel.

Also, hey, it's my birthday tomorrow! Turning a very old 29.

...Closest I can remember I've had that was for the greater evil. Party had been given the 'I'll give you power and let you live if you work for me' ultimatum by Baal with condition one of us would become his champion and wield the regalia of evil (which in this version turned you evil or more evil in specific ways the more you had), and we would collect the remaining two for him.
I decided I was way too LG for just going 'sure I will switch alignments', but told party OOC I would be fine with it, just not IC. So they pinned me down and forced the first one on me.
...Making me the most powerful and most evil in the party. I went from doesn't like causing pain to torturing even fellow party members for shits and giggles.

Happy birthday Newbiespud! And don't talk about being old at 29. I'm 30 and haven't managed to accomplish half of what you have! >_<

As a 46 year old, I look forward to seeing you hit 100. :)

Oh yes, 29 is soooo old. Look here, you silly potato, I've got enough to worry about at 27. I don't need even more reasons to feel like I squandered my childhood.

Uh, I mean, happy birthday.

It ain't fun, but it sure beats the alternative.

As of late, my traditional Birthday comment has been "Congratulations on surviving another year, in spite of everything's best efforts"

Seems especially pertinent recently.

So... Are game that seems to go in accelerated time like in the comic common? That it seems that only a couple of minutes passed but instead days are happening?
Chakat Firepaw 16th Aug 2021, 3:28 PM edit delete reply
Yep, some parts of the RPG community have developed an aversion to having extended time gaps in campaigns so everything ends up happening at a breakneck pace. This even happens with professional stuff, (although the most obvious bit of that is having people go from 'a bit better than random nobodies' to 'pushing into the lower bounds of the divine' in a few months of game time).

@Newbiespud. Does the DM have any plans for a one-shot featuring all new cast of characters and taking place in the far future?

None at this time!
