That's it for Magical Mystery Cure!

I'll be taking a bit of a break between this arc and the next. Because 1) hoo boy, navigating the dreaded Wings of Twilight was not something to be undertaken casually; and 2) I'd like some free time to focus on finishing a game mod I've been working on for the past year. So there'll be an intermission full of guest comics provided by hard-working readers like you!

And when I return, we'll begin with What About Discord?

Okay, that caught me off guard.

I was half expecting Keep Calm and Flutter On.

But now I just remember that requires unicorn twilight, not alicorn.

Can you imagine Make New Friends But Keep Discord in this role?

Don't remember that ep - will have to watch it.

Don't. It's one of the series's worst.

I've just looked it up, and it certainly doesn't look like something I'd enjoy. I don't like awkward stories. So I'm curious how Spud is going to work it.

Oh, we're adapting What About Discord? That's actually an intriguing twist. The more I think about it, it has potential.

There is one thing that I enjoy about DiscorDM and that's you can converse with him about a pony game and his first sentence isn't "Have you looked into getting mental help?"

This is a guy who answers his phone with "Greetings, mortal!", I don't think him judging anyone else for eccentric behavior was ever on the table.

For Discord, I agree. Just don't meet my local GM as he would do both.

A good GM can roll with anything, especially when it turns out they radically misunderstood what the players were aiming for. Case in point: we had a campaign where we requested an all gnome arc. Brandon thought this meant we wanted a comedy routine, but rapidly clued in when we made a beeline for the warren of the kobolds who'd TPK'd three of the last five parties (they were fanatical devotees of the archdemon Tucker). What followed was a Small size battle with distinct similarities to Stalingrad.

Only time I've ever taken a gnome to Name level.

Add me to the list of those intrigued by your choice of episode for the final boss battle. Looking forward to seeing how you adapt it.

I wasn't expecting "What about Discord"

I'm really curious to see whereit will be going.

Until that happy time, enjoy your free time.

Huh. I really wasn't expecting DiscorDM to be so sanguine about setting his character up for a dramatic defeat, and it sounds like he's at least open to communicating with his players rather than just curbstomping them. I'm really looking forward to this now. :D

DiscordDM reads to me as one of those people who is okay to deal with until they fixate on the process. So he's a reasonable person until his Me vs Players playstyle actually gets started. Then he pulls out the stops so he wins.

What about Discord is the dumb one where Discord trolls Twilight for no reason, right?
ZecterThree 10th Nov 2021, 8:32 PM edit delete reply
Eh, more like he got it into his head that he could do the whole 'friendship lesson' thing just as well as Celestia...and thus decided to mess with Twilight to do so.
At least that's my theory. I don't remember if he gave a good reason besides 'friendship lesson'.
But honestly, it looked to me like Discord just wanted to mess with Twilight by calling back to all the great things that happened over the weekend, which he made sure she wasn't present for.
