And that's The Sonic Rainboom! And the 900 page milestone!

This was the episode I'd been worrying about from the beginning, 899 pages ago. Once it was clear this comic was going to get off the ground, there were a number of "staple" episodes that I knew I would have to cover someday. The Sonic Rainboom was at the top of that list. I had to do this episode at least some kind of justice. I hope I did as much as a D&D-based screencap webcomic can.

I've probably imagined this reinterpretation of events about ten different ways, and people in the comments have imagined five more. But the funny thing about writing: Even if you have a story event that's essential to your vision and can never be removed, a lot can change around it on your way there. Whatever my first idea for this episode was, it certainly wasn't "Rarity intentionally risks her life to give Rainbow Dash a chance to shine but the DM is skeptical about the physics so it all comes down to a natural 20 but not a single natural 20 but not an astronomically lucky four in a row either."

Anyway, some guest comics will follow, primarily a long and unusual arc from DragonTrainer, the One Piece Grand Line 3.5 author. And after that... The Best Night Ever!

Yeah. NS thinks it's gotten off the ground so far, but just wait until after the next arc... ;)

Definitively looking forward to 'the best night ever' being handled by these players.

Jkay. Let's see considering how the night ended in original. I'm expecting a big reveal(of some kind atleast) and the whole trainwrecking be acording to GM's plan
