Guest Author's Note: "And there you have it. Whether or not this is canon is up to NS, who has said he is avoiding Discord and Princess Twilight for a while so this may be long forgotten by the time Discord appears in non-guest strips. But if the original campaign had counted on Celestia and Luna (Nightmare or otherwise) eventually being incapacitated at the same time, Discord could well have been planned as a Bigger Bad. Fortunately, if you want chaos, you can just let PCs be PCs.

"Has anyone else run into such a thing in actual campaigns, where the DM only needed to let PCs be PCs to drive the main plot along, with little need for planning beyond the next session or two for dozens of sessions in a row? I know some of my best campaigns, as player and as DM, were where the players and player characters were set up by the DM to do this."

Newbiespud's Note: That's the last guest comic! Thanks to everyone for submitting and helping out!

Winged Cat, once again good job.
If I didn't know this was a guest comic, I would have sworn that NS did it himself.
4.5 out of 5

Thank ya, thank ya!

I promised there would be more than zero Discord mentions by the end, and here you have one. :)

Cookie for the comic. Was interesting. :3

PCs being PCs... yeah that's too easy for me. My old local group were usually into the stereotypical "murderhobo" antics if there wasn't anything immediately pressing for their attention. But letting them drive the plot that way was fun for them and me. I got to experiment with many homebrew monsters due to them meddling with cranky wizards that don't appreciate a party kicking in their front door. :3

This is completely unrelated to anything, but amusing: I was thinking about the silly idea of a pony town named 'Ponyville'. So out of curiosity I did a little Googling...

There is a town called Humansville in the US state of Missouri.

I used to live there. It is, unfortunately, rather boring in comparison to Ponyville.

There is actually a FimFiction story mentioning this and actually founding a New Humansville.

Well yeah, I figured it'd be easy for you, Digo. ;)

And thanks!

(Not surprised that there is a Humansville.)

BTW, I have started work on the script for our collaboration for next time. I'll try to get you at least the first few this weekend, so you can see the general direction.
