I don't think any of the characters here intended for every session of the Gala Ticket archplot to start or end up with Rainbow Dash as the focus, because I certainly didn't intend or plan it that way. It's honestly just sort of how it turned out, writing from one moment to the next.

I dunno... I think I'd be glancing at the GM when I say 'finally'.

But I tend to be critical of my performance as GM because I know I have so much control over the story. Even if my players aren't the sharpest hammers in the bag to pick up plot points.

Why would you want your hammers to be sharp, and why would you use them to pick something up?

Same question I had, Pablo. But it's Digo we're talking about here. Best not to wonder too much about it.
*whispers* I mean, you've seen his backyard, right? Too many spots of upturned soil to be normal...

Well, some hammers DO have nice sharp bits on the back that could be used for picking up papers or punching through armour.

"I certainly didn't intend or plan it that way. It's honestly just sort of how it turned out, writing from one moment to the next."

Really? I figured that was completely planned, especially with the sonic rainboom at the end that would be the natural place to have Dash actually earn it. I suppose next arc is the actual Gala then? With all this buildup to it, it will be all that much more crushing when dreams are destroyed here.

Plot Twist: The comic experiences a time jump like The Walking Dead. Next arc picks up a year after the Gala.

Im just glad we reached this point. I hope the GM will accomodate his lore for pegasis in accordance of the players desire and accomplishement after this!

Hope you are doing good Newbiespud. How's your life?

In kind of a stasis, just surviving. Hungry a lot.

I'm preparing to overhaul the Patreon, especially since I haven't had the energy or time to organize a SpudShot in entire months. There's a very old project that I'm reviving that'll be supported by the Patreon. I'm almost ready to announce what system and setting my next big roleplaying effort is going to be in. (Spoilers: It's Dusk City Outlaws.) So a lot of stuff in potentia, working behind the scenes, on the cusp on becoming public presentation; I just have to build up the energy, which is easier said than done when you're poor.

Humm... does your patreon works per month or per post? I cant afford donating for each comic released. Im not exactly sure how Patreon works since I never given money to someone throught Patreon before.

That's a setting creators get to decide. In my case, it's per month at the start of each month.

I'll subscribe in a week or two. I lost my credit card so I had to order a new one. At least this problem allowed me to see this so thank you!

Good news Rarity.
There's only one obstacle left.
Bad news.
It's Blue Blood.
Wait.
Could it be possible that he is the leader?

Huh. I didn't notice any ongoing theme like that, though I suppose reading it three pages a week might have something to do with that.

Something I'd been concerned about was whether Spud would be able to deliver a suitably epic portrayal of the Sonic Rainboom - and the group's exhilaration at rolling a natural 20. See, the longer you draw out such a process, the better the delivery needs to be - as they players started to notice, it seems.

Thankfully, Spud did a great job, Mostly with pictures. Which, come to think of it, was how the Orbital Friendship Canon - also involving friendship and rainbows - was handled.

Wait, why can't either of them complain for themselves? I would.

Complaining about something that is your own cussing fault is generally frowned upon.
