Guest Author’s Note: “The first double page! And along with that first, we get the first official introduction to the alternate versions of the main cast! This was one of the kicking off points of the original comic idea. ‘What are the Twilight Zone alternate reality versions of the Mane Six like?’ The overall idea has changed a bit since then, but I kept some of the characteristics of the Alt Six.
If you aren’t familiar with the video Fluttershy is referencing, it’s a reference to The Animated Spellbook, the work of one Zee Bashew on YouTube.
The specific video, along with quite a few others of his, have been temporarily set to private because of recent YouTube changes, but what’s still available is highly worth a watch.
Story Time Prompt: Ever find a build or character concept outside of your normal games that you really wanted to try out? If you did, how did it go?”

To be fair to the new player, this is what Fluttershy was like in EQG too :p

Ahahahaha, that brings back memories, that gag where Fluttershy just reads her character sheet was absolutely classic. Great callback. In a remarkable coincidence, I DM'd a one-shot session just last week which included my little sister, and when I asked her to introduce her character, she proceeded to... simply read her character sheet line by line. So those memories of classic FID were already on my mind.

Erg. I'm cringing a little bit.

When the DM has a *very* good idea of who they think your character should be, that is often a bad sign for fun.

This version of Fluttershy seems to have a very different take on the character. Need to let her run with it.

Really? She seemed estastic over the fact that 'Fluttershy' is finally roleplaying.

When the Newbie (Twilight) realizes she's not a Newbie anymore. Now she's an experienced player who gets to help other newbies discover their characters.

First Ponyfinder character was outside my norm in a few ways.
Tier 1 mage when I am normally not a tier 1 player...I like specialists more than generalists.
The game had an alignment system including Girly/Androgynous/Boyish to balance out having no choice with Good/Neutral/Evil. So she was Lawful Girly Good. I do not play girly characters usually...partly since trauma in elementary school made me hate my gender, especially girly girls. Over that for most part (just makes me feel uncomfortable when too much, but normally not), but still not a character type I am used to playing.

She was an Eldritch Godling/Celestial Sorcerer, and since we were playing a high level game she had access to basically all spells and then some. To account for my not being used to playing it, and since both classes were bloodline/intuitive, I decided she was just born overpowered and had not really been in combat before. Which went fairly well (I forgot to figure out weaknesses and change elements to match, as well as in general fumbling around my spell list). On the girly end, I based her a bit off Rarity and went from there. I tried to make her the 'element of Empathy' and nice to everypony, but that is more on her LG side. ...I don't know how best to say how she was girly beyond 'kind of like Rarity'. She was also a craftpony and cared about her appearance, but tough when she needed to be. Though probably toned down on the caring about appearance in adventure situations.

‘Now say it like it isn’t a question.’

Brilliant line

Is everyone talking in white a different person it hard to tell at times?

White speech bubbles have anchors pointing to the speaker, and apply to speakers "on-screen". Colored speech bubbles (and other shapes) apply to speakers who are "off-screen".

All the builds.

I don't get the chance to PC a lot.

More specifically tho... Hexblade Bladelock in 5th.

I am loving this idea of Twilight no longer being the total newbie giving a hand to a newbie gaming group
