Well then! Return of Harmony Part 2! Hard to believe we're here and still trucking along, considering this was a goal since the very beginning.

Yes, stay strong Sparkle. Like your paper towel name-sake. You can absorb this and clean up the mess discord spilled... oh, that comparison does work well.

Nope, not my color.

Ah, rainbow plaid. My favorite.
And drop goes the Rarity.
Onto her fainting bed.

How about a rainbow that's actually plaid?

I made it myself.

That is actually epic and I could see Discord doing that to Rainbow's flight trail. xD

I have a rainbow plaid shirt. Bought it when a work event had a dress code that required a shirt with buttons. "So... that's the only condition, then? Challenge accepted."

That is a nice rainbow. And thanks for illustrating your approach, with the samples.

...Are we not going to discuss the fact that Red is on the inside? No? ...okay then.

That's an original badass boast. :)

Story time!
When has manaical laughter turned out badly for your party?

The first time one of my friends tried DMing, he learned that villainous monologues don't work well in a world with no uninterruptible cutscenes. One of the other party members fired an arrow at the Big Bad before he even got to the maniacal laughter.

I felt that was in rather poor taste, myself.

Oh. Whoops, kind of the exact opposite of the prompt. My bad.

It turned out badly for the Big Bad's party (of one).

Digo Dragon
Steam-punk fantasy campaign loosely based on Final Fantasy 5 & 6: The party's monk had the ability to reflect back any non-magical projectile attack fired at him if he could pass the appropriate DC on a defense check. Anything. Late in the campaign he was able to reflect bullets about 1/3rd of the time.

The party had broken into a factory and shut down production on the BBEG's new tank assembly line. The BBEG's "dragon" (his right-hand henchwoman) got into a tank with two subordinates and attacked the party as they got outside. The tank's armor made it difficult to damage, so the party decided to run away from this fight. The dragon loaded the tank's main cannon and fired it, laughing that she'll finally kill the annoying heroes.

The party monk decided to use his reflect ability, rather than dive for cover (like everyone else) from the incoming cannonball. He rolled the dice and I told him straight out that he needed a darn high roll or else he'll likely be killed by this attack.

Critical success.

Well then. So the "dragon" laughs maniacally when suddenly the monk spins on his heels, catches the cannon ball, and flings it right back at the tank. The damage dice roll high enough to penetrate the armor, so the internal structure takes damage. The hit location? The gunpowder store for the main cannon.

**BOOM**

(p.s., this campaign took place in 2003, well before Kung-fu Panda 2)

Discord just screwed up by not talking to twilight and everyone else in the intermission. This was his one chance to make this a fun game again, but now... Oh this is going to be a disaster.

Sometimes we fall to learn how to get back up again.

It might be a disaster, but those make the best learning experiences.

It was the time for a pizza, dude, and he spent it patching up with Fluttershy.

Okay I don’t really get what discord is doing with calling out pinkie enjoying her action girl voice. Yes she likes it, you were there when the two of you OOC picked it because it would be something she would enjoy. And now that it’s a bad thing she is enjoying it? If someone else gets this, I would really appreciate the explanation.
terrycloth 18th Sep 2018, 7:06 PM edit delete reply
He's not saying it's bad that she's enjoying it, he's saying that it's okay for him to enjoy hamming it up also?
terrycloth 18th Sep 2018, 7:07 PM edit delete reply
...which means he's taking her IC comment personally because of Fluttershy, probably. As if she was calling *him* out.

Pinky and Discord. Two characters who are, even in the show, inclined to break the fourth wall and get all meta.

These two players are clearly having a BALL.

Haha, that's our Action-Girl Pinkie. ^_^
