Guest Author's Note:
"I'm not tacitly against bringing in new people on a temporary or permanent basis to spice things up, or changing things around to fix what might not be working. But, while I don't think what Sunset and Twilight did is bad (obviously, or I wouldn't have written this comic to begin with), I don't think it's the sort of thing you should do without talking to each other.

On the other hand, not communicating is sort of the whole bread and butter of these types of problems in the first place. Especially in the world of fiction, where conflict is...almost always necessary for an interesting story.

On the other other hand, it's less entertaining when it happens because characters just...fail to pick up on pretty obvious signs.

I am amazed that they figured out the clues from famed secret keeper and master of body language, Twilight Sparkle, though.

Story Time: Any time the DM tried to tweak something and just...could not keep it a secret?"

Newbiespud's Author's Note: Hey, we finally played another My Little Pony session! It's FATE, it's set in Ponyville, and it's a silly game show with fabulous prizes!

7th panel seems to have an extra 'we'.

That was a fun Spudventure. I think if I did another game show, I should look for some royalty free sound effects.

Dangit. 'S what I get for finishing a comic late.

I'll fix it after work.

Makes sense. Finish late and I usually gotta go we we too. XD

If you think about it, this is a little like when Twi's DM brought in Discord DM without telling anybody - communication issues seem to be a common theme.

We started out as a random pick-up game for our local AL community and we just sorta clicked to the point we became a regular Hardcover group. And I think it's because I'm a regular chatterbox (I once got called "The Mouth") whenever the subject of D&D (and subsequently AL) came up, I'd rave and sing our group and DM's praises. To the point my DM would get random messages from other AL players asking if they could join us.

Said DM usually politely declined as he is particularly protective of our D&D group. So it sorta surprised us when our DM told us that they had invited a good friend to guest in one session.

The guest player was such an amazing addition that they became a regular member. It was two or three sessions later that our DM admitted he had invited his friend because we were constantly in
a state of near-TPK. We were a full party of unoptimized builds made and played by inexperienced players, we definitely needed someone who knew what they were doing mechanics-wise. It was fantastic even if our DM was throwing us through the wringer both combat and RP-wise.
