That is one articulate little birdie, now that I'm looking at this page again...

The use of Madame Pinkie in that small panel is such a great touch.

My Pathfinder party always has the Message cantrip up between all party members. Completely Explicable Telepathy!

Would it be wrong to hand-wave a PC just... parroting the information off to others?

Yes and no. I'm not a believer that every in game conversation has to be played put, 'exposition' is my usual single word short hand. I'm even okay with retroactive conversations (within limits) when someone forgot to pass on a thing. Buuuut the charecters involved do have to be...y' to talk to each other.

I'm in the yes camp. assuming they are in the same room then again i play over text and typing out I share What I Learned saves so much time.

In this case, they'd have to parrot it with Blueblood either in close proximity or else otherwise distracted. Either way, he has the potential to overhear and how the players pass the information along can be something he can use in turn.

So if I was in that campaign, my vote would be that the players have to roleplay out the info-passing, no hand-waved parroting.

Keirgo, Kira: You missed the point of Digo's post. ;)

Too bad they don't have modern tech, else the party could just tweet it.

Though they could go out on a wing and try to have one of their paths dovetail with Rarity's, where they could whisper to her without robin her from Blueblood's side.
