Just for your information, Daylight Savings Time is going to start before the next update. For the past few months, the Friendship is Dragons site time has been an hour ahead of actual Pacific Standard Time. As of tomorrow, the times will be synced once more.

For everyone else who doesn't care about Daylight Savings Time, this means the comic will be updating one hour later for the next few months.

Thank you. It'll be nice to have the comic post at 8AM again.

Also, Poor AJ. She's the apple pony, and everybody loves apples, but Mr. and Mrs. Cake are the professional bakers and makers of delightful sugary treats.

Oh! AJ could have some kind of OOC existential crisis after learning that she's not the sole source of food in town! And then she begins to plot their downfall! MWAHAHAHAHA!

Drama is amusing when nobody else takes it seriously!

... Story time today is about existential crises. Tell me about a time a character has had an existential crisis.

Only story I have for this one is OOC...

I was rolling a new character and the dice hated me for some reason. A majority of my rolls were giving me really low stats. So, naturally, I kept re-rolling. The others told me to just accept my rolls.

Unfortunately, because I already have a bit of low self esteem in my D&D group, I had a minor outburst about how if I did that my character would be completely useless (and it's possible I threw in something about how I already felt like I was most of the time). There was a brief moment of awkward silence before they just let me re-roll >_>

Which is funny because local time it has been updating at 8am.

Show how much Daylight Savings throws thing off.

I remember one time I threw an existential crisis at my entire group.
I was the DM. The group's quest was to stop the BBEG who was - apparently - trying to destroy the entire world. They genuinely believed they were doing the right thing.
However, no matter how many times they clashed with the BBEG - it was several - the battle always came out a draw, and the populace seemed to prefer the bad guy to the adventurers. Also, at one point, the BBEG asked why his 'friends' were trying to kill him.
We then got to the major climactic battle where the adventurers faced off against BBEG in a defensive stance, preventing him from reaching the Temple that would allow him to wake the beast that would destroy the world.
In the middle of the battle, one of the players rolled a knowledge check as far as what the creature was called. He passed.
I told them the creature was known as the Wind Fish.
