I'm usually the furthest thing from a nitpicker, but one thing that kinda stuck with me from this episode was that Fluttershy's reaction in this moment seemed really underwhelming to me. Like there was a mismatch between the line as written, as voiced, and as animated. But again, not a big fan of nitpicking. Only mentioning it here because it was a part of my thought process for this page (and because I wanted something else to write in the Author's Note).

Anyway, it looks like my multi-group Dusk City Outlaws campaign is coming to a finale. Here's the first half of what might end up being the penultimate session.

I know it will be a little while, but I can hardly wait to see the reaction page to the reveal of the guest-GM.

Also, hmmm... Story time....

How about a time where your campaign just got really, really WEIRD?

While the party were patting themselves on the back for beating the fake boss they got attacked by the real one. A hydra made out of medusas......medusae?

In our 5e campaign, three party members (myself included) touched this weird giant magic head, each of were sent on a sort of mental journey (which were, separately, a climb up a mountain while being attacked by imps, flying through a giant hive in the air followed by being chased a swarm of something or another and... an eating contest where you could actually get hurt by the food you were eating. Guess which one was mine). After the journey each party member was then physically changed, with one turning brown, growing two extra arms with shovels on the end (giving them both a natural weapon and a burrow speed) and really good darkvision, another growing insect wings on his arms and legs, and the final member gaining enough weight to suffer a permanent penalty to their movement, but also got a small strength boost and growing 3 feet taller.

Seems to me the first thing to try is to ask which head's snakes are the prettiest. That way, all those snakes start bashing each other, and the heads are seriously distracted. They might even defend *their* snakes from the other heads, and wind up with a giant (and very confused) medusa-head hydra statue.

So there was this campaign I took over as the GM for. Urban fantasy, somewhat standard, but the players were starting to get in the mood for something less conventional. Shortly thereafter, the party was holed up in a building (a standard 4-to-10-story concrete tower), surrounded by armored vehicles, with "hostages" who were somewhat on the PCs' side. I gave them some rope on what to do...

...they organized a dance party with enough momentum shifts to crack the building off its foundation and rock it, step by step, down the street, right through the siege.

Let's just say, surreality for the players' enjoyment became a campaign theme from that point through the campaign's end.

ok, so we were playing Vampire the Masquerade, the party consisted of a Catiff with gargoyle wings and shapeshifting (yours truly), an assamite, and a tremere who was a fox mulder wannabe, and our keeper a Ventrue diplomat. We were tasked by the prince to track down a couple of rogue Malks (pretty standard fish-malks if you know the type) who were threatening the masquerade, we were sent to talk to the police commissioner, a young skinny black man named Ed Gordon, who was an agent of the Prince.
Ed told us about a vampire who believed he was a hero in the style of the 60's Batman, who went by the name of Bloodman, he had sired 2 childer, a girl who dressed like an owl and called herself Hootie, and one who thought he was the Joker. while talking to Ed, we were shot at from across the alley. 3 of us
