Mawlers Take Manehattan update inbound!
Session 5 - At the Zoo Part Two: Libsyn YouTube

As for the four-year anniversary coming up this Tuesday's update, I just had an idea that doesn't require too much work. What if I used my livestream channel that day to do a live retrospective of the comic thus far, browsing the site, providing a writer's commentary, taking callers via Skype, etc.? And of course I'd record it and put it up on YouTube later. If that interests people, I'll figure out a time and go for it.

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

I would be interested in watching.

I love the pun! Puns for days!

And the results are in! Raxon is now the fastest racist in the world!

Won't someone help him get unstuck?

The anniversary idea sounds cool. I'd love to see the Youtube vid on it ^_^

Player in-fighting. Ugh, too many bad memories of it breaking up groups. It's partly to blame for why my last local group is no longer a thing.

Which of the comic's main 6 do you like the most?
Notice I said comic, not show.
2 different personalities.
Me: Twilight Sparkle. The newbie that stoped the DM's plans, before he can do anything.

I'm a fan of Applejack and her meta knowledge of how the game is going to go down based on the GM she's playing with. :3

This may come as a surprise considering my avatar but
I love the mostly reformed rouge bit
Ponikon 27th Jul 2015, 4:13 AM edit delete reply
Rarity ain't wearin' no rouge.

Oh come on... I spelled it wrong. ROGUE as in a Theif, Archer, or Assassin not ROUGE the french word for red and a type of cosmetic makeup... this is one of the things I dislike about the english language.

It's a coin toss between Applejack and Rarity. AJ because I end up playing tabletop a lot like that (meta-gaming without being ridiculously obvious about it all the time) and Rara because of the story arc between both the player and the character.

Pinkie Pie. I love that there's actually a canon explanation for her abilities, but she still leaves everyone speechless half the time.

...the fact that she represented my character in my story time that went into the video might have something to do with that.
Boris Carlot 27th Jul 2015, 4:16 AM edit delete reply
Rarity or Applejack, I think.
ANW 27th Jul 2015, 5:42 AM edit delete reply
Let's see what we have here.
Twilight 1
Applejack 2
Rarity 2
Fluttershy 3
Pinkie 1
Dash none
RD:What!? No one voted for me? I thought you guys was cool!
Jason Shadows 28th Jul 2015, 6:11 PM edit delete reply
Probably Fluttershy. A newb like me, of course I'd choose her as my favorite!

Oh thank goodness, this meaningless fight is almost over. I will release the horned one if the winner is either Aapplejack or Rainbow (or a draw).

The MunchKING
I thought it would be this horned Guy
Specter 26th Jul 2015, 12:08 PM edit delete reply
Yeah, normally that would be the case, but I was asked 'politely' to stop having him on speed-dial ever since I figured out that he had a second job as pizza delivery, and I called him for pizza while in a plane full of angels.
DallyDaydream 25th Jul 2015, 7:55 AM edit delete reply
I wanted to release a crack theory about how the only reason AJ and Rainbow keep ending up ahead of the other contestants is because they were being lapped, but then I realised this is a single-lap race. ^^;

Or maybe everyone else slowed down to watch the free wrestling match?

Lots of biting going on between those two.

Anyone here see the MLP/Top Gear mashup?

That's a classic. :3

@NS: I haven't gotten a response to the guest comic idea I emailed you, re: Lesson Zero. If that idea doesn't work I can come up with others.

Live commentary and retrospective on the comic and the comments section? Yes please.

I want to give a story of a race.

So in my first Ponyfinder game, I was GMing and my brother was playing our party's speedster/mailpony, Speed Chaser (monk 20/time thief 10 pegasus). A demon portal had opened up in the Braymuleda Triangle, and we were sent to seal it while the goddesses dealt with the larger repercussions (it also destroyed stars without interference). The party was 30th level...and there aren't a lot of things with CR that high. So when they asked me to describe a demon that was coming out, I picked a random thing from there, The Mantis God. Well, Speed decided the Mantis God was responsible for the portal, and she went after it. So I looked up its abilities, found it could cast Gate, and had it start to do that. It went through the Gate, and Speed followed... Into a plane filled with mirrors. The Mirror Plane (from Manual of the Planes). The Mantis God immediately went through another portal. But before Speed could follow, Speed ran into one of the Mirror Plane's effects. Her opposite alignment mirror double, who couldn't leave the plane unless she killed the original. ...After talking with my brother, we both realized one thing: as a more than 20th level monk, Speed and her double couldn't hit each other. Or even do combat maneuvers against each other. And the double would know this. So the double started to beg Speed to let her kill her. After all, with 20 levels of Monk of the Four Winds, she would just come back the next day (and I as GM would let her come back as the same character, or have another character Wish it so). Speed, on the other hoof, did not know this need for being killed, and just saw the chance in a lifetime to have a race of a lifetime. So she started to gallop away at the speed of sound, creating a sonic peppermint boom in her wake. The Double followed, trying diplomacy and begging along the way.

The mirror plane normally has a random number of small mirrors leading to other planes, but I Rule of Cooled this version to have the walls, floors, and ceilings be large mirrors. The floors were a bit stronger than the walls and ceilings (and harder to pass through), but none of them could withstand two ponies racing at the speed of sound. As the mirrors connecting the planes broke, the planar matter splashed inside. The plane of fire threw in gouts of flames, clashing with glaciers from the plane of ice and sending out a flash flood. But then negative energy washed over it all, breaking it down into void. The positive energy plane met the negative energy plane, and they completely canceled each other out. This continued. There were many planes from the normal D&D planes, but there were also ones for each Element of Harmony, both from the show and some we had added. Books crashed into cake, and apples into cute fluffy animals.

Finally, Speed had been convinced by her double to let herself be killed. On three conditions. 1. The double will wait for Speed Chaser to come back to life. 2. The double will lead Speed to the portal to Equestria. 3. The double will become Speed's sister <3. The double agreed, made herself the name of 'Sprite Chaser' and after they had passed the plane of earth, which made a nice wall against all the other stuff, they stopped racing and hugged. Then Sprite coup-de-grace'd Speed, waited until she came back, and led her out.

Aw, that sounds nice. I hope the rest of the campaign ended well after that.

I'm going to do the live retrospective idea after all, but it'd help to get some ideas for a good time of day, so that as many people here as possible can watch. Naturally, the internet being an international stage, I won't be able to find a perfect time for everyone, but some suggestions from you guys will help narrow it down.
Mykin 27th Jul 2015, 2:45 AM edit delete reply
Well, I work graveyard at the moment, so I'm probably the last person to ask as far as timing is concerned. I'm usually awake and at home around late afternoon/early evening, if that helps at all.

I think later in the day will work on Tuesday considering that people will be at work earlier in the day (or sleeping in my case). My two cents.

EDIT: Oh right, MST 2:30 pm to 9:00 pm is when I'm free.

Let's see, I'm in the US Eastern time zone (I think that's 3 hours farther ahead then you? You have daylight saving in your area, yeah?) and I'm generally online most often between 7pm and 11pm.
Theo 27th Jul 2015, 4:58 PM edit delete reply
I'm usually around on early to late afternoon myself.

Speaking of the livestream, do you think you might have a sort of creator commentary on how you make a page? Maybe you could show the process on how you make 1 page, so we can get a behind the scenes look?

Well, obviously the winner is the one who ordered the pizza the DM wanted.
