Readers of the RSS feed would have already clued in to the fact that Pinkie Pie's DM dialogue is referred to as the "PM" in the transcripts for the last few pages. A little bit of an Easter egg, I guess - partially intentional, even.

Pinkie Pie objecting to the common names for her job?! Gasp!

Not sure why I'm shocked, but I thought it should happen. Anyone have any good stories about role refusal?

Can't think of any role refusal. My gaming group always used Game Master or GM for whoever was running the games, but "Dungeon Master" was something of a title I had in the group because I ran the most games and offered up the most interesting and challenging dungeons to them (Challenge in a good way, not challenge in a TPK kind of way).

Hmm... no to Pony Master, Dungeon Master, and Game Master... maybe she can be the Key Master? But wait, who would be the Gatekeeeper?

Will this lead to a joke at the swamp where in they have to... cross the streams? :D

I would think if someone asks you if you are a DM, you say you're a DM.

I think this'd be considered role refusal, not sure about it, though.

NPC woman runs into town yelling, "Help, my child's gone missing!" And the party (4 PCs, 1 Lawful good, 2 Neutral goods, and 1 Lawful neutral) spend five minutes arguing with the woman that to find her child they're gonna require some form of payment (the NPC didn't have anything to offer as a reward).
The woman begins to walk away until the barbarian finally says, "Okay, we'll help you."

Not exactly role refusal, but my aunt always preferred to be called the Game Operation Director (G.O.D.) When she DM'ed
