Well dang. I've completed my 30th trip around the sun and today is the first day of my 31st.

I've been writing this webcomic since I was heading off to college. I've been writing about tabletop games longer than I've been playing them. I'm still a long ways off from making what anyone would call a full recovery from my mental health issues. I've cut down on a lot of the projects I previously piled on my plate.

And what I feel most right now, even more than melancholy, is gratitude, to all of you for sticking with this, for being in your own way a part of my life. Thank you.

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

You're welcome, and thanks once again for connecting some of our most beloved universe: DnD and Ponies!

It was 100% worth it! Thanks for sticking around these 30 years!

...When this came out, I was still in high school.
I hadn't even come out yet. Wow.

More bull than goat, but...

True, he's got cloven hoofs, like a cow or goat (but not a horse). Though weirdly, he's got neither a goat's nor a bull's tail, but more of a horse's.

I'd forgotten the touch with Discord changing the "puppeteering" stained glass window to the 3 alicorns. Nice touch!

Congrats on making it to 30.

He's going to give him the necklace now, isn't he. This is when he gives him the necklace.

So now it's the time for Tirek gives the necklace as a "symbol of good will" or perhaps as an amulet to give Discord some more time until become stone...

and Happy Birthday and thank you for all the work.

Congrats on 30, and sticking with this funny little project! I am very grateful that even though I've drifted away from most form of ponies, this is still around, being entertaining.

Dang, been reading this comic so long that I forgot how I even found this comic in the first place. XD

You're welcome! And thank you for writing for so long! Being creative (as a DM, writer, artists, or whathaveyou) can be draining, and it's great that you've made it so long. May you continue to find inspiration and energy for years to come.

Happy birthday, old man.

I totally feel you. Goals change. I struggle with mine, and have health issues to think about that I've fallen wayyy behind on dealing with. But I have achieved some things - in particular a gaming blog I've been working on for fifteen months now. Sometimes you just have to pick something, start it, and keep working at it. This comic is one of those things you've concentrated on, and just because it's only one of your goals makes it no less an accomplishment to be proud of. Keep going, as long as you feel able, and we'll be here to support you.

You're welcome, but the reason I've stuck around is this is the only reliable webcomic I like

Yeah – Darths & Droids was my first introduction to the campaign comic genre, and not long afterwards (but around a decade ago now!) I went seeking out others. This is the only other one I'm still reading, due to the reliably high-quality. :)

Keep them coming! Happy Birthday and good work!
