This whole scene is full of dog-like things before the main antagonists even show up: Several of Spike's mannerisms, Rarity's pats on the head, the whole buried stash thing akin to a dog hiding a bone in the backyard...

You could call that foreshadowing, or theming, but I'm not gonna. It's just an interesting parallel to draw.

Am I actually the first to post?

I'm scared!

I'm scared too.

Speaking of theming, I do that often with dungeons I make so that the players get enough hints on what the end boss is going to be. Funny thing is that despite the hints they seem to still get surprised.

One of the most interesting dungeons I made was an abandoned underground factory that builds Warforged. It was flooded and many rooms were frozen or were quite cold. The cold motif continued with iced over machinery, snow that sprinkled out of ceiling pipes, and the big one where all the treasure was stuff that either protected from or dealt damage in cold.

The fun was the final battle where the last source of heat (a power generator) went critical and threated to drop temperatures so cold that the PCs had to fight an ice golem to get out before they froze to death.
Sadly the campaign stopped before they completed that part.

They did ask why a power source was making things colder instead of hotter. I told them that the facility ran on... Cold Fusion. XD

If I wasn't going fission right now, I'd give you my reaction to that last joke.

Oh good, you at least got it. My players didn't think it was very nuclear when I told them the joke.

Sounds like they nearly had a meltdown.

Don't be so supercritical.

Hah! Y'know, I'd probably have said it's a magical heat engine that's pulling heat out of its surroundings, instead of making a proper pun.

I think I need a better sense of humor.
