My guess given the GM is it was meant to be positive. They don't seem the type to set up a massive take that at one of their players.

It ended up kind of being both. That Blueblood was able to pull this off is a testament to what this archetype is capable of. That he's choosing to attempt it is an indictment of what said archetype might do at its worst.

The DM did say that she liked the "Evil rogue fashionista", so it probably is more of an homage than a shot at Rarity's player.

I'm hoping this will turn out like a skit from the Carol Burnette Show:

I don't know why this is, but it seems like in every pony RPG I've participated in, there's some kind of over-arching grand conspiracy, and they all work pretty well. It's as if ponies just lend itself to such things well. ^_^

This may be related to why the pony 'verses - straight FiM and otherwise - lend themselves to RPGs so well.

It's a world of high fantasy where the rotation of the sun and moon are controlled by two living, killable deities. A world where all magic is fueled by raw emotion, and the stronger the emotion the stronger the magic. For example, Sombra. Someone who delights in cruelty will develop magic that enhances that cruelty, creating a feedback loop that - if left to grow - will turn someone into a smokey untouchable monster that can enslave an empire unless the counter-emotion is maintaining a magical crystal barrier.

So yeah, by the very nature of someone who'd have the inclination for a takeover, their desire would naturally lead to action - especially if they're magic users themselves (*cough* Chrysalis Discord too *cough*). And long villainous plans like that are perfect for RPG universes.
