Getting back in the saddle means restoring an outline-level knowledge of the show in my head so I know where to look for screencaps. And there's only so many shots of Shining Armor that don't include Twilight's wings. Thankfully, the MLP Wiki includes a comprehensive episode-appearances chart for each and every character... to an almost psychotic degree.

Coming back to this show after a break, in the context of it being over and I'm still here, is a little bit weird.

Notice: Guest comic submissions are open! Guidelines here. Deadline: January 27th, 2023.

So does basically all girls confirm that the gm is a girl or can basically still be left up to interpretation to potentially mean almost all girls.
The Froggy Ninja 16th May 2020, 7:08 AM edit delete reply
I would say it's confirmation that the gm is a guy. You generally don't count yourself when observing the existing makeup of a new group.
CrowMagnon 16th May 2020, 7:21 AM edit delete reply
That was Shining Armor saying it, though. He was making the observation that it was all girls, including the GM.
Paradox 16th May 2020, 8:54 AM edit delete reply
Except he said "Basically all girls" which COULD still mean the GM is female, but could also mean the GM isn't

Took me half the day to realize that was Shining and not RD.

So in other words, it's still up in the air.

Patrick Stewart GM is still remotely plausable bringing in D'lancie to play dischord.
Truthkeeper 16th May 2020, 5:42 PM edit delete reply
Why would the DM be Patrick Stewart of all people?
Malroth 16th May 2020, 11:35 PM edit delete reply
Just imagination of "best possible DM voice" that got over extended
BackSet 17th May 2020, 5:52 AM edit delete reply
I've never seen a movie with Patrick Stewart in it but I am totally on board with this interpretation.

You've managed to miss all the reruns of the '80s "Dune" movie... Along with those of "Star Trek: the Next Generation"?

I lost cable ages ago and I didn't used to watch a lot of TV.

Could also mean that they're all girls, but one's enough of a tomboy to come off that way and didn't correct the new guy *Shrugs*

probably controversial headcanon here. I've only read the first 100-ish pages, but I like to imagine the players are mostly guys (at least of the Mane 6), DM included. The only character being played by a girl (to me!) is Pinkie Pie, who I imagine as a gorgeous excitable woman, new to DnD, and has big poofy brown hair.

Poll Time

Aw Pinkie.
You always switch my poll when I'm not looking.

Favorite pizza toppings
Me:Pepperoni, followed by Pineapple
Space Jawa 16th May 2020, 8:21 AM edit delete reply
Most any meat (though I don't like pepperoni) combined with pineapple and banana.
NobleCuriosity 16th May 2020, 10:12 PM Bananas on pizza?!? edit delete reply
I have literally never heard of ANYONE putting bananas on pizza before. How did this become a thing?
Smithers 18th May 2020, 5:49 AM edit delete reply
I've put banana on a pizza before. Because dessert pizza is a thing.
Space Jawa 19th May 2020, 4:39 PM edit delete reply
I took a trip to Lithuania once, and among the places I went to eat were pizza shops. I discovered while I was there that banana was listed as one of the standard topping options. The idea intrigued me, so I tried it, and it promptly became one of my favorite topping options.
Samwise 16th May 2020, 10:38 PM edit delete reply
Is there somewhere that sells that, or do you have to DIY? I'm somewhere between horrified and intrigued at the idea.
Space Jawa 19th May 2020, 4:37 PM edit delete reply
In Lithuania, it's a normal option.

In the US, it's DIY.
OblivionProphet 17th May 2020, 11:44 PM edit delete reply
For me, it's Olives. Even in a panzerotti, which makes it unbearably greasy
Anvildude 16th May 2020, 8:23 AM edit delete reply
My fave is meatball and green bell peppers, but I'm not particularly picky.

Just no onions, and nothing overtly spicy. I can stand a slightly spicy Italian sausage, or a mild pepperoni, but won't enjoy it that much.

And honestly Anchovy is interesting. I've only had it with mushroom, but I want to someday try anchovy and pineapple- I think the super-salty 'chovies, and the super-sweet pineapple would go well together.
Boris Carlot 16th May 2020, 8:36 AM edit delete reply
Pepperoni, sausage and spicy beef.
Wulfraed 16th May 2020, 8:46 AM edit delete reply
Traditionally, extra sauce, extra cheese...

I'd go to pepperoni if plain cheese is not an option.

The last few years I've gotten bolder: ham, bell pepper, onion, pineapple (with the sauce and cheese, of course -- I've been in a pizza joint where they'd have just brushed the dough with olive oil and put the listed toppings on it).
Borg 16th May 2020, 8:58 AM edit delete reply
My current go-to is sausage and green onion, but I'll go for most anything except olive, ground beef, and chicken, with the further exception that chicken is approved on curry-based pizzas.

I've been eating a lot of curry-based pizza lately, because it turns out that I cope with never leaving my apartment by eating a lot of spicy food.
RuBoo 16th May 2020, 9:59 AM edit delete reply
Meat. Meat, meat, meat. Cheese or pepperoni are alright, but a bit lacking in flavor. And there are many flavors I don't like (onions, peppers, and pineapples most relevant among them), hence, meat. I have a crust preference, too. Hand-tossed or thicker, none of that thin li'l cracker trash. If I wanted a pizza-topped cracker, I'd get a cracker!
A Quiet Reader 16th May 2020, 12:09 PM edit delete reply
Cheese. Extra cheese. MORE cheese. ALL THE CHEEEEEEEEEESE!!!

I actually have some toppings I haven't tried yet, but I also don't want to shell out the money for a pizza that I might end up hating...

Guest 16th May 2020, 10:42 PM edit delete reply
you could buy a cheap frozen pizza from your local grocery and add the toppings in question before cooking. won't be the same as the real thing, but will at least give you a cheap general idea if you're going to hate it or not
spudwalt 16th May 2020, 12:47 PM edit delete reply
Meat very yes. Also cheese, sauce, and black olives. Pineapple is good if combined with Canadian bacon, and I won’t object to eating peppers, onions, or mushrooms (though they’re not my first choice).

The *best* pizza, though, is Chicago-style deep dish pizza. We’ve got a family recipe for it (originally based on Giordano’s but later improved), and we’ll usually do one that’s spinach/black olive and one sausage/mushroom.
aylatrigger 16th May 2020, 1:15 PM edit delete reply
Top three:
1. Broccoli on white, thick crust
2. Ham and pineapple on white or red, thick crust
3. Tortellini on white, thick crust

Can't do any meat except the ham and pineapple. Anything that even touches pepperoni is too spicy for me. Anchovies I can't get within 5 ft or so without getting sick.

Also lots of garlic. Must keep NJ safe from vampires.
Robin Bobcat 16th May 2020, 2:42 PM edit delete reply
Let's see. Local pizza place has two combos I like.

The 'Causeway Classic', which is pepperoni, sausage, salami, olives, and mushrooms. Little salty, but good.

The other is the their garlic pesto chicken, which is simpler - chicken and cheese, on a garlic pesto sauce.

For unfamiliar places, I'm okay with most anything except onions and peppers.
Guest 16th May 2020, 3:17 PM edit delete reply
Sausage, spinach, mushroom. Especially on a Chicago deep-dish pizza.
Malroth 16th May 2020, 3:43 PM edit delete reply
Dislike mushrooms but ok with picking them off the pizza. LOATHE pinapple on pizza and even a drop of the remaining juice is enough to ruin the slice. whole pie.
THE OTHER GUEST 16th May 2020, 9:51 PM edit delete reply
Canadian Bacon. JUST Canadian Bacon. Anyone who defiles it with Pineapple and calls it "Hawaiian" is a heretic.

I'll eat most other "Just Meat" topping pizza and enjoy it, but my favor for plain Canadian Bacon is part that I just like how it (subjectively) tastes better than anything else, and part nostalgia.
Guest 16th May 2020, 10:40 PM edit delete reply
Most of the time I do the standard Ham and Pineapple or sausage. However, I'm also partial to BBQ chicken pizza, and I recently experienced a spinach alfredo pizza that was divine.
Mordenheim 17th May 2020, 8:13 AM edit delete reply
Pepperoni, mushroom, and EXTRA CHZZZZZ!!
Guest 18th May 2020, 9:54 AM edit delete reply
Anything with copious amounts of cheese and meat, excluding anchovies and spicy sausage. Other than that, my only hard and fast rule is no olives or mushrooms, as I'm allergic to both.

*sets up a chair to watch the pineapple-on-pizza war roll through*

I like that Pinkie has a spreadsheet to figure out what pizza toppings people are okay with. My old group used to have something similar, though mostly about toppings people don't like.

Snacks and food are an important part of meetups. I used to host most of my local groups, and generally would buy some assortment of sodas for everyone, with a tip jar for people to pay it back. Money that gets reinvested into buying more soda.
The Froggy Ninja 16th May 2020, 7:07 AM edit delete reply
Sweet and savory is flavor combination enjoyed by all.
Malroth 16th May 2020, 3:45 PM edit delete reply
tomatoes with basil or oregeno are already almost too sweet by themselves.
CrowMagnon 16th May 2020, 7:24 AM edit delete reply
No olives, no mushrooms, and ESPECIALLY no pineapple unless it's in its own separate container far away from the pizza.
BackSet 17th May 2020, 10:05 AM edit delete reply
We have a saying in the corner of the internet I'm from: Pineapple Pizza is the food of the devil.

Favorite pizza was served in town - macaroni and cheese pizza on a thin crust. It was good, but the store closed recently (pre-virus) and I'm allergic to bread... and macaroni... and cheese... Thankfully, I'm not as into Pizza as I was macaroni and cheese. :(

Also: Welcome back, Spud! :) So glad you are still here! :) <3
