Part of the eternal problem of adapting a TV show to a D&D campaign is giving everyone something to do when the medium focuses on one series of events and a limited number of characters at a time. And it gets even weirder to keep all the plates spinning while mixing multiple episodes together! Buuuuuut I've gone on and on about all that before, I'm sure.

AJ's little comment in the last panel got a good chuckle out of me.

Actually, this could work better than if there was just a book with "how to detect chaos magic" in canterlot- the DM can make it a quest to research what they would need to track down discord/ where they think he might have gone to, and plan little one offs for their various attempts- Ironically the long running sort of thing he intended Nightmare Moon to be, instead of it being fixed in one session.

For the comic, that means various odd episodes can be used to explore the various things they are doing and places they are going searching for clues, and doing research.

You mean basically the keys and Tirek episodes from S4?
