Is it a deep cut for FiD lore if it's a major event that happened in the first arc? You tell me. (I've been doing this for so long I'm starting to worry about internal references.)

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

@Newbiespud Depends. Do you want reassurance, or honesty?

I got it instantly so I don't think it's a deep cut. YMMV.

I don't actually understand the question: A deep cut meaning what?

If you mean a spoiler, well, if it's anything like most Youtube stuff most of the viewers have already seen it.
But at the same time, you'll probably have viewers trickling in as long as this comic exists (and a bit after) so there'll always be someone who hasn't seen any of it yet.
But the earlier it is, the more acceptable the spoiler, I generally feel.

Deep cut = obscure reference.

Not just obscure, but something that you basically have to go way back to get. You know, like in the first episode?

Rarity falling to her apparent doom on page 50, taking 7d10 fall damage unless she makes a good Acrobatics roll.

Ah. Seems part of the problem is the abreviation: I still didn't understand 'deep cut', but it'd be easier to guess what that meant if I'd realized he meant Friendship is Dragons.
Unfortunately, 'Fallout' also starts with an F, so both of Spud's MLP-RPG related stories are abbreviated as 'FiD'

"Rarity is plummeting to her death. Again."
Or as the Mane Six call it: "Tuesday".

I have another character concept for you guys.
A mild version of the beast tamer.
Can only call on the help of neutral beast that is near by.
The GM plays it like a temp ally.
Would not attack teammates or neutral stand bys.
A one on the call roll, is both good and bad.
Good: 1.5 times strengh and endurance, plus one more movement space.
Bad: The GM takes control, and all others are consider enemies of the out if control player.
What do you think about this concept?

I love the twist on this! I assume she's actually going to attack the Wonderbolts to knock them out... which is really funny.

Flail your legs for 2d8 damage! XD

Yeah, this ought to be fun.

To a crisp, you say.

Hm, at worst it could feel like a noodle incident for some, which isn't bad either.

You know, Rarity's plan was obvious on the last page, but seeing it in action is just so much better than I ever could have imagined.

That is how you can tell when players have been together a long time. They start picking up each other's quirks. :3

Well... I'm gonna be totally honest, whatever Spud's referencing, I don't remember in the slightest. Give me a hint though, how many hundred pages ago was it, about? :P
Malroth 25th Mar 2017, 5:06 PM edit delete reply
836 pages ago according to the archive search of the word plummet.

lol. I just want to see those attack rolls vs the Wonderbolts who are trying to save her.
Jennifer 25th Mar 2017, 7:08 PM edit delete reply
Well, the term "deep cut" is, to me, an obscure reference. I'm sure we'll have lots of those come the new season of MST3K...

That said, I look forward to the denouement of Rarity's brilliant plan with anticipation. Awesome work, Spud!

So instead of taking a dive figuratively, Rarity decided to take a dive literally... and figuratively at the same time I guess.

Rarity makes the Guinness Book of World Records for highest stage dive.

Go see the new Power Rangers movie.

Also, this strip is quite amusing.

I always figured it was just one of those Rarity things...
