Dramatic tension (or lack thereof) is more often drawn out by the usual gabbing than any actual construction of events in a tabletop setting...

I feel bad for the DM. If their players aren't destroying a big campaign in a single session, then they're prolonging the inevitable with conversation.

Players; can't make a sane campaign with them, can't make a good story without them.

It isn't often that the GM and the Mane Six are in this adversarial a relationship. He's obviously more frustrated than usual...

She. They're an all-girl group, including the GM.

... Since when? The GM has never been confirmed to be male or female.

I always thought of the DM as a fictional version of Spud.

I think Drax is referring to the fan comic in which the DM is Lauren Faust.

Still. Seems like the GM is being awfully nice what with the backup plan still in place and all.

But yeah, she's obviously frustrated, lol.

Now. I'm willing to bet that the players will throw tantrums when RD rolls a 20 and the GM asks for another roll. And another, keeping with the three 20s ruling before; after all, the GM never agreed to honor the one-20-fast-talk-change.

Makes sense, really. Because the previous rolls were not cutting it; they were still sitting at a .0125% chance, whereas now, they managed to bump their odds up to 5%.

Personally, if players stall for time this obviously, I just consider that time keep going in the game, meaning in this case that the ground keeps rushing at Rarity's face. Usually make them stop stalling and act already. :p
