I got a little bump in guest comic emails after the last update, so I think we'll have a modest set this time around. Nothing as huge as you might be used to, but enough for a couple weeks worth. I'm still going to go through with my mini-arc idea, that should give me a decent break from the main arcs.

Anyway, you guessed it; another Fallout is Dragons!
Session 38 - A Debt to Pay: Libsyn YouTube

Notice: Guest comic submissions are still open until this arc is finished! Guidelines here.

"Yeah, it's that time of year, and this old house needs her chimney swept, if you get my drift."

"I'll, uhh... I'll see what I can do."

Let's hear your best euphemisms!

The exterminater is coming to get "the bats out of her belfry" if you know what I mean ;)

He's gonna "plow the field" if you catch my drift

She needs her "pipes rattled" if you know what I'm talking about

The football player is looking to "blitz her pocket" if you see where I'm going

Ummm yeah I'm done

"Man I'd like to raid THAT dungeon."

"Hey there, wanna see my Magic Missile?"

We're going to "make a grilled cheese sandwich", if you know what I mean.

Yeah, I'm not very good at this.

Heh, my best one's always been "getting her chimney swept". Can't beat that for classiness. Glad we agree. :D

In terms of D&D innuendos, how's about an oldie-but-goodie from Belkar: "Wanna hold my Rod of Lordly Might?" Or one from Korgan: "There's something long, hard, and low to the ground you're free to touch and fondle." He claims he meant his axe... Or Morte's "Wanna put me in your inventory?" Or anything else Morte says.

...I wanted to sign off with a non-stolen D&D innuendo, but I can't think of one. XD

Not everyone needs an enlarge person, if you catch my drift.

Guess which weapon I'm proficient with...

It's time for the old snatch and grab, as Rarity would say.

After all that yelling, it's time to sooth that sore throat...
Winged Cat 21st Feb 2015, 3:10 PM edit delete reply
They're grappling. (Cue IC avoidance of the OOCly dreaded rules.)

She's getting his help starting a spell with a 9 month casting time.

She's in the middle of something right now. Actually, something's in the middle of her. (Stolen from Grrl Power.)
Evil Paladin 21st Feb 2015, 5:13 PM edit delete reply
PT (Physical Training) in the rack (bed) if you catch my drift.

Rattle the head board.

Shake her bed.

Getting the piston moving.

Going spelunking.

Parting the curtains.

Going past the curtains.

Pushing her fun button.

Checking the carpet.

Parking the car in her garage if you get my drift.

Swallowing the gravy.

Tapping out Morse Code (That would be incredibly nerdy and kinda cool if you did that)

I can do this ALL! NIGHT! LOOOONG!!!


Actually I'm tapped. I'll see when I can get it up again.

She needs a sword for her sheath.

I have an LoZ picture of Ghirahim telling Fi he wants to put his sword in her sheath. Her immediate response is that it's too big. She had no idea why he started blushing.

Disloyal Subject
*sigh* Are we seriously doing this? It's like the Welch lists all over again, but without 80% of the ridiculousness-based fun.

Visiting the nunnery.
Worshipping Sune. (Or Aphrodite, or whoever the dominant pantheon's deity of carnal love is.)
Gathering spell reagents.
Copying from each other's spellbooks.
Tapping for mana.
Casting a nine-month summoning ritual. (Nine for humans, anyway.)
Testing the [getaway van's] suspension.
Watering the forest.
"Roller derby," "Journalism."

It's time to connect the dynotherms, because megathrusters are go, if you catch my meaning.

One for the old-timers:
"Visiting the Festhall." Okay, that's not actually a euphemism in-game.

"He's breaking into the Queen's dungeon, ifyaknowwhatImean."

"He's back in his room, slayin' the dragon."

"He's callin' on the might of Pelor, if ya know what I'm sayin'."

"After she made me cast Flaming Burst, I had to go to the Cleric for a Remove Disease spell."

Scrap? Nooooo! Postpone? ...mmmaaaaybe.

Not that I know any DMs who have ample experience of their plot being derailed for the sake of character development and general shenaniganery. ;)
Mykin 21st Feb 2015, 5:42 AM edit delete reply
My current DM is good at just working a campaign without rails. Sure, he has a basic idea of how he wants the game to go, but he has enough experience under his belt (and an army of characters with unique personalities and histories attached to them) that he can go along with whatever non-sense we seem capable of dragging up.
Digo 21st Feb 2015, 6:18 AM edit delete reply
My Fallout Equestria GM seems to be good at rail-less campaigning. Right now we seem to all be separated and just doing our own thing at this one town, yet adventure is still happening.

Back in college, I was one of the few friends that had a car. Sucked when we went out for drinks or parties because I was ALWAYS the designated driver ._.

Mykin 21st Feb 2015, 5:38 AM edit delete reply
"Am I the only one who actually drives around here?!"

I've been there, AJ. Especially when everyone expects you to play taxi at the spur of the moment when you have your car completely filled with stuff for work. Makes for an interesting experience.

And Mr. DM? It's never a good habit to try and leave a mess you've made alone for any length of time. Especially when it leaves one player unhappy with their character because of it. Also Twilight, I see where your going, but I doubt it going to end well. Or even close to well.
Digo 21st Feb 2015, 6:15 AM edit delete reply
After a while I started charging people gas money for my taxi services. Gas ain't cheap!
Robin Bobcat 21st Feb 2015, 2:43 PM edit delete reply
Me, I had a simple fee - one chocolate milkshake. Longer trips included gas, but it kept me from being the 'around town' taxi.

Are you kidding? It'll clearly end well! It'll be the best night ever!

Are we ever going to get an end to the humanized ponies guest story that broke off with Twilight depressed?

I'm hoping that the Prince Blueblood in this version is a suave and sophisticated fellow and not a jerk.
Specter 21st Feb 2015, 7:59 AM edit delete reply
NO! Twilight, don't do it! You don't want that kind of pain. Believe me, I know what it's like, and it's not worth it!

Rarity will come back soon, pretty sure of it. It'll probably just take some time and realization on Rarity's part to figure out which side she belongs to.


Or Twilight making the worst mistake she will ever come to know.

"I'd walk, but uh...I'm still in a chicken suit."

Took me a while to spot that, but it is hilarious!

Malexia 21st Feb 2015, 2:31 PM edit delete reply
Poor DM. They seem to be in this constant cycle of having to trash their notes because Twilight ruins everything. EVERYTHING!

Also, I read the DM in Celestia's voice. What do other people have as her voice?
Zuche 21st Feb 2015, 2:52 PM edit delete reply
Considering the amount of notes he's had to take over the course of the series, Spike.
Zeeth 23rd Feb 2015, 2:37 PM edit delete reply
You guys Do remember, Spike is voiced by a woman...
Mykin 21st Feb 2015, 3:37 PM edit delete reply
As odd as this will sound, after hearing a certain podcast, I sometimes read the DM's lines in Spud's voice. Probably because it's his comic and all that, so it makes sense in my head. There is another voice I read the DM's lines in, but for the life of me I can't remember where I heard his voice or who it even belongs to, so *shrug*.

Either way, the DM is a male in my mind.
Digo 21st Feb 2015, 4:01 PM edit delete reply
I seem to read the GM in Spud's voice ever since he started posting the Fallout games.

The visualization as Lauren Faust is starting to grow on me, but...

Male something-or-other, given how often Spike ends up being there to guide Twilight's plot along.
falcophoenix 21st Feb 2015, 2:51 PM edit delete reply
Twilight sort of looks like she's getting tired of the GM's constant desire to railroad everything. Potential future conflict?
Evil Paladin 21st Feb 2015, 5:17 PM edit delete reply
I'm thinking the Prince is Twilight trying to get Rarity back in action (HEYO!). It is one of her stated goals.

Also, to introduce Prince Blue Blood and the Grand Galloping Gala.

....At the Gala!

I wish I was your derivative, so I could lie tangent to your curves. How about we go home so you can see the exponential growth of my natural log. Trust me, my tardis really is bigger on the inside.

Speaking of Fallout is Dragons when Golden Crown ( I think that was her name correct me if I'm wrong) was introduced as the "Mafia Princess" did anyone else think of her as the "God Daughter"... XD sorry I just can't say "Goddaughter" with a straight face.
