Guest Author's Note:
"For this comic, instead of just doing straight-up humanizations of the characters or the tropey fanons for them (Fluttersweater, Twilightsweatervest), I decided to make humans that were, for the most part, not meant to be direct humanizations of the ponies, but instead humans that would naturally make the mane6 as characters. If it weren't for the fact that I wanted all of the players to be instantly recognizable, I would've gone even further to make them more unique.

"But yeah, if it wasn't obvious, this is a redrawn version of a good chunk of 169 and all of 170."

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

Very nice, frostedWarlock. I can easily pick out who is playing which pony. Nicely done, and I love how Fluttershy's player is mimicking the buttercream pegasus so well.

The DM is a red head... Lauren Faust expy, right?
frostedWarlock 7th Oct 2012, 6:42 AM edit delete reply
Yep! There's also a somewhat occurring fanon (probs based on an older pic of her?) that mainly draws Lauren in a black and white striped shirt, which is what her shirt is based on.

...Is Dash's player wearing a Homestuck Hero of Time shirt?
DoubleCross 7th Oct 2012, 7:47 AM edit delete reply
The very format of frostedWarlock's name indicates that they themselves are a Homestuck. XD
LoganAura 7th Oct 2012, 8:16 AM edit delete reply
That and the title is Maid of Rage.
And the Light Symbol on the Celestia Replies profile.
Also Homestuck Dash is a new headcanon of mine XD She has all of the shirts and wears them in rainbow order just because.

That, and the title of the comic is in the form of one of the heroic titles players can have.
Andrew Foose 7th Oct 2012, 8:37 AM edit delete reply
Sorry; I should have refeshed before replying
LoganAura 7th Oct 2012, 8:42 AM edit delete reply
That happens. It's also a tottally possible title too, which is a bonus, and might even be what Fluttershy'd get if she played. A test.

I love everyone's expression in panel 9. They're just awesome. My favorites are Rainbow's and Twilight's.
Sparky 7th Oct 2012, 7:55 AM edit delete reply
Ain't a thing wrong with that. Just thought it was hilarious given that I was wearing a hero of time hoodie when I saw it. =)

Disregard, clicked on the wrong reply >_<

The MunchKING
They got ADEL to GM a game for them??

Huh, never thought he'd be into ponies. :P
Curb 7th Oct 2012, 7:15 AM edit delete reply
That was great, love it, would hate to be on the business end of that stare!! Love the looks on everyone's faces...beautifully funny.
Zuche 7th Oct 2012, 8:21 AM edit delete reply
I'm embarrassed to admit I'd be inclined to ask her for her phone number.
Dusk Raven 7th Oct 2012, 1:49 PM edit delete reply
So would I!

Wait, who are we talking about?
Zarhon 7th Oct 2012, 7:18 AM edit delete reply
Never stop, FW.

It's all in the eyes. Very nice.
Lyntermas 7th Oct 2012, 8:23 AM edit delete reply
Very nice, frostedWarlock. Very nice indeed. The "distinguishable, but not identical to ponies" look is quite nice.
AkumaTh 7th Oct 2012, 8:25 AM edit delete reply
I always liked the humanized version of the comics. They let us see what it is like on the table. And this is of excellent quality.
Digo 7th Oct 2012, 10:52 AM edit delete reply
Ooooh, stylized art. I do like it.
The reaction shot is brilliant too. Nice interpretations.
Limelight 7th Oct 2012, 12:19 PM edit delete reply
Am I the only one who finds it funny how much RD's player looks like Scootaloo?
Zuche 7th Oct 2012, 12:49 PM edit delete reply
I don't see any resemblance between her and Marty McFly.
Dusk Raven 7th Oct 2012, 2:56 PM edit delete reply
Wow, for some reason I really like the art style here... the characters are surprisingly nice to look at, though it took me a moment to recognize Twilight and Applejack. You should draw more of this group, frostedWarlock.

Also, I want to fit the word "quirky" into the statement above, but I'm not sure how to do it.
jinger 7th Oct 2012, 3:19 PM edit delete reply
Hot damn, this is actually awesome. The designs and art style are amazing.
redwings1340 7th Oct 2012, 5:07 PM edit delete reply
hehe, I like the homestuck references in there. Makes up for no updates from that today. The comic is cool, although I think it would have been cool not to see the DM at all. Then again, I guess that wouldn't work with this scene.

Also, shameless homestuck reference self promotion:
Mr. 0 7th Oct 2012, 5:59 PM edit delete reply
crowning moment of awesome.
AlicornPriest 7th Oct 2012, 9:22 PM edit delete reply
See, I have a feeling this comic will nail down what the GM looks like.
When we read this, we already know what the Mane 6 look like, because they're, you know, actual characters. But the GM is a faceless, non-canon character. Since this is the first time we've seen him/her drawn (that I can remember), this may become the standard for what he/she looks like.
Masterofgames 7th Oct 2012, 10:03 PM edit delete reply
I've been saying the DM was Lauren for ages now, but did anyone believe me?

"No, no! The DM is Newbiespud!"

Yep, not going to say anything. Just going to lean back in my chair, take a long drink from my tall frosty beverage, and just keep being awesome.

Ah... that's some tasty self vindicated liquid refreshment right there. ^u^
redwings1340 7th Oct 2012, 10:56 PM edit delete reply
remember that this isn't canon in the comic strip. This isn't Newbie's comic, so if Newbie wants to reveal the DM at any point, he gets to decide who it is.
PrincessCadence 7th Oct 2012, 9:24 PM edit delete reply
I like how the DM looks a little like Lauren Faust...
Kitsuko 7th Oct 2012, 10:53 PM edit delete reply

Haha Twilight has the dopiest face. She's dialed permanantly to "wat".

Oh. My. GOSH. YES.
Kuroi Tsubasa Tenshi 9th Oct 2012, 9:39 AM edit delete reply
I almost lost it when Fluttershy's player through the DM screen away. I spent three straight minutes snickering instead.
Guest 11th Oct 2012, 1:37 AM edit delete reply
does anyone else think RD's player looks like a human version of Scootaloo?
Flutters hi 18th May 2013, 10:25 AM Flutters hi edit delete reply
Okay, I am confused here, which player is RD? Is it the one on the far left?
kiapet 24th Feb 2014, 6:09 AM edit delete reply
That's not a Homestuck referance, is it? Because that would be awesome.
xenoPsychologist 14th Feb 2015, 12:25 AM edit delete reply
i keep imagining these characters as being played by katawa shoujo characters for some reason... oh well, back to the archive binge
