Man, things are hectic lately, but it's nice to be back in the groove of making and posting comics again. How long have I been doing this, anyway?

...Oh. Nine years as of this coming Tuesday... next update.

(Also, if you've been craving some pony-RPG stuff, keep an eye on the Newbiespud twitch channel tomorrow for some pony-themed cyberpunk Shadowruntrot content!)

Notice: Guest comic submissions are open! Guidelines here. Deadline: February 20th.

Tell us about something one of your players was embarrassed about but became incredibly proud of.

I was a player, not the GM, in this one, but:

GM: "Bretai, you get your kill points"
Another player: "Isn't that common by now? Shouldn't it be half points?"

Character kept dying and being brought back to life, over and over.

Naturally, at the end of the campaign, the one who takes out the final big bad.

Cadence's player is doing a phenomenal job making sure that the party doesn't take her character personally, and making sure to go out of character making sure everyone is comfortable before proceeding.

It stands in contrast to Discord, which now that I think about it, might be your intent here. While Discord targeted the OC dynamic of the group to break the party, Cadence is making sure the party is having fun while also being able to play a rude, obnoxious character at the same time.

Its hard to play a character like this, and its a tough balancing act she has to run, but this is the way to do it, making sure the party knows that you aren't your character and making them feel comfortable while still engaging them in the story.

Indeed, Cadance seems like the kind of player any of us would love to have at their table.

Indeed, the difference with Discord and Cadance is like nightmare and daybreaker... no, wait. Scratch that. Like being involved in a car accident and getting a bonus Spud comic. Yeah. :D

Nine years... I can't remember anymore how I found this comic.

Nine years this Tuesday, holy heckin crap. He hasn't even reached the part where Twilight becomes an alicorn, so I can't imagine how long this series would go if he does somehow manage to keep it up all the way till the very end of the series

I only just now put together the implications of how old this comic is. FIM barely existed when you started out.

Yep. In the summer break between Seasons 1 and 2. Probably only 3 months after I discovered and watched through the show.

Wow, I stumbled upon it earlier than I thought then; this comic is what introduced me to the show, and I remember the season 2 opener had only just come out at the time.

Ooh... So, FiD has existed for almost as long as I've been a fan of FiM.
