The real problem with highly visible curses like this is that even an experienced roleplayer isn't going to be able to pull it off perfectly. Something's probably going to slip through whether they intend to or not.

Yeah, this is one of the potential weaknesses in the curse. There's no way Applejack can avoid revealing at least some truth, so if she put herself in the right frame of mind, she could twist the curse into self-contradiction. Which would probably either overload it or burn out her mind...

Kudos to AJ's player for not going ooc. I know a horde of players that would have cheerfully blabbed the whole thing and nodded cleverly about being ooc.

I still defend that AJ curse extremely easy to beat. She can't reveal the truth so all she have to do is say the opposite of it all the time. It will clearly be inconsistent and the other players will get that she is speaking the opposite of what she means. "I got blessed and I can only speak the truth! For example: this rock is white! *points at black rock*"

That would be revealing the truth through implication. Specifically disallowed by the curse.

Not at all. People will figure it out themselves but the player never revealed the truth herself.

I think ignoring the curse and refusing to talk about what happened would be the best solution. Discord never forced her to lie, just forced her to not reveal. The lying and gaslighting was an idea given to her by discord, in order to try and distract AJ from the fact he never forced her to do this.

Ultimately, this is going to be Discord's loophole when he finally reveals how AJ could have gotten out of this curse and his justification for how he's keeping it fair.

Applejack is trying to think about how to beat this curse, but this curse relies focusing on it in order to be effective.

I would tell the colorful one not to cheat, but I think she got the shock.
