Making up big plot points on the go and getting hamstrung by the smaller details? No, I have no idea what that's like - certainly haven't been doing that for nearly 11 years come Thursday...

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

Reminds me of a one off joke from one of the MLP infinite loops where the elements summoned a captain planet equivalent instead of the friendship rainbow. The idea of the power of friendship litterally making a new friend is interesting, but it would undermine a lot of messages if they couldn't stick around or only showed up when a big bad needed to be stopped. etc.

Celestia: "Honestly? I'm not sure. We didn't even know if this would work, Luna thought it might kill you!"

Twilight: "SHE WHAT???"

Luna: "I mean, it was a really small chance..."

Cadence: At least we're glad that the one calculation as to the mass of the Thaumaton was wrong and Equestria diddn't collapse into a black hole as a result.

And the decay rate of some of the exotic particles was low enough that the atmosphere didn't ignite. Honestly, this is a win any way you look at it.

Either way Discord wouldn't be an issue...

Well at least Twilight didn't suffer an overload of power and exploded...

And then exploded again.

What if compressing all that magical power in one pony causes it to collapse in on itself akin to a black hole ?

I freely admit that Spud's method is how I plan my RPG sessions. I sit at the table, stare at my players, and announce the most interesting "high concept" I can think of on the spur of the moment. All else is entirely improvised.

My last session's intro was "The Queen's pet displacer beast has just climbed the tallest tree in the Royal Hunting Preserve. Get him down."

I said this moments after my newest player had announced that her first PC feared heights.

Luckily, she developed a cat familiar who not only could climb for her and through which she could see and act, but could communicate with the displacer beast.

Sounds like you would do well with the classic sample adventure for Paranoia:

Their brief: Workers have stopped showing up for their duties in several workspaces, get them back to work.

The problem: A maintenance bot has somehow painted a corridor that was supposed to be black, (the lowest security level), white, (the highest).

Complications: Accusing Friend Computer of error is something only a CommieMutantTraitor would do, (please report to the nearest execution booth). Intentionally damaging or defacing Complex facilities is treason, (please report...), as is entering areas clearly marked as beyond your clearance, (please report...).
