Mixing these Chrysalis screencaps has been an absolute treat, if for no other reason than I get to play with a much wider range of emotions with the character than is usually available.

I find myself wondering if you'll find a way to work in Twilog Sparkle.

"Really?"
"Do you know what kinds of bonuses it gives me?"

Amazingly my first time hearing that name, but it fits so well.

One detail that stops someone/thing from being intimidating.

When you have no skill ranks in it.

I have a unicorn doctor who is really good with illusions. She managed to get past hive guards with a changeling disguise and meet Chrysalis. The disguise didn't fool her one bit, and she was probably both impressed and infuriated that her hive couldn't tell.

Probably the only campaign I'll ever take part in where I got to play Chrysalis' lawyer in front of pony parliament.

Could be worse: "Okay, you get to smite evil and have a really cool giant sword and badass armor but... you just went down two size categories.

But is it an objectively giant sword or a sword that is giant relative to your reduced size? I think something like an 18-inch person wielding a 6-foot sword successfully could still be intimidating.

Not quite that bad... 2nd Ed RuneQuest used 3D6 for SIZ of humans (later edition changed that to 2D6+6).

I had a barbarian SIZ 6 or so, with STR 18, using a bastard sword one-handed. To put that into perspective, the sword was 48 inches long -- the character was about 54 inches tall.

Might not be so bad if your smite evil power isn't affected by shrinkage.

Me: Sweet so my kobold barbarian is now Fine sized? However I can still count as large when beneficial thanks to my levels in Goliath stoneblessed. I'm also stacking Sho- Disciple unarmed damage with Greater Mighty Wallop so reducing my Base size by 2 increased my unarmed damage by 16d8 per hit.

Yes I am a bit of a munchkin.

With great power come great defects... Any story about how a player was thinking himself overpowered until it discover a tiny little defect?

I knew a guy who bent rules and used 3rd-party feats to make a mage that wore plate. He dumped STR to get his INT high, and prepared fly so he could skip climb and swim checks. Then we had an underwater mission, and his bonus on swim checks was -16...

With Polymorph being a thing in this system, why would the voice matter when the rest of the body is (if Smolder assumes that is Ocellus) changed or at least an illusion?

Just for flavor.

Got bored and randomly calculated the following:

Since in strip 16 RD said that "it's been almost an hour", this would make approximately 3.44 minutes per strip (assuming the same amount of time passing in same-length strips).

1267 strips, with 10% of them being double-length is equivalent to 1394 single-length strips.

1394 multiplied by 3.44 minutes is approximately 80 hours of play.

That's 40 game sessions if each one lasts 2 hours (like the first episode of Fallout is Dragons).

(Btw Spud, how long do your D&D sessions usually last?)

...or 13 game sessions if the DM is a maniac like the Past Me and does sessions lasting 6+ hours.
