Assuming the scheduling or processing doesn't break, there should be two episodes of my brand new major tabletop podcast, Dusk City Outlaws! It's a campaign where I'm running multiple groups of unlawful players in one shared, open-ended continuity where they can potentially indirectly affect each other!
Dusk City Outlaws 1 - Crimson Lions 1 - The Little Museum Job, Part 1: Libsyn YouTube
Dusk City Outlaws 2 - Cackling Crows 1 - The Horsenapping Job: Libsyn YouTube

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

Ah the bee, by itself annoying but ok.
When together very dangerous.
Any bee or bee like stories out there.

I used army ants in a game. With pathfinder swarm rules, my players had almost no way to fight them except jars of alchemical fire. Which would have been fine except they were inside an antique ship. Most of them ended up with several burns and they had to be careful not to fall through all the new holes in the floor.

I believe you mean "express elevators to the basement." And if there wasn't a basement before, there is now.

In a ship, the 'basement' is generally known as 'the sea' :P
Rastaba 29th Jun 2017, 10:39 AM edit delete reply
My bad, misread ship as shop. Still think the sea sounds better than army ants personally.

I knew you could get that shop ship shape in no time.

I always loved Rarity's expression in that first panel. It's just so... udderly ridiculous.

That pun.....stop :3

"Yeah, about that..."
GM/DM lvl 1 enchantment (mind-effecting)
Causes the player to immediately question everything they think they know about the situation. Will save ends the fear, but not necessarily the paranoia. This spell can be Maximized be casting in conjunction with "Call for Perception Check"

Given the intelligence of cows in their world, it seems impolite to stare at their udders.
aerion111 29th Jun 2017, 10:03 AM edit delete reply
Less impolite than Twilight's treatment of them during Trixie's debut episode (pretty sure Magic Duel is the second Trixie episode, so my currently-sick mind can't remember any name for the first)
And they hardly even protested that.
Probably quite used to being treated like livestock.

"Boast Busters." But I'm sure had any inquired, they'd have duly received a perfectly justified explanation!

Then there's the cow that bought cookies from Pinkie to go with her milk. That was awkward.

we lost spike to blood loss from last panel.

Ha, a guild paying it's none member employees, that's rich.

That's how my group usually takes down infamous guilds.

... except the one group who paid their employees enough to hire their own security detail. Good times.

The first rule of fashion is that it needs to be functional.
Rastaba 29th Jun 2017, 12:22 PM edit delete reply
In all fairness except how it leaves her hooves and flank exposed it seems reasonably functional and similar to actual bee keeping outfits from what I know...not saying I know everything, just it looks more functional than that statement seems to call for.
aerion111 29th Jun 2017, 9:24 PM edit delete reply
More practical than the guys' outfit.
But then he's probably used to the stings; If you watch certain bee-related videos, the beekeepers have given up on any kind of gloves or anything even when nudging the bees away from what they're inspecting; They just kinda don't care about the stings anymore.

Don't suppose anyone knows where the Dainty Dove stuff started?
Like, what page of this webcomic.
I'm feeling like I need to re-read it to see the exact terms and such that were promised.
Rastaba 29th Jun 2017, 9:41 PM edit delete reply
Dainty Dove's first mention was during the diamond dogs incident with Sapphire Shores. Rarity essentially bought it by selling her those outfits studded with jewels so she could smuggle the jewels or something.

The first mention of Dainty Dove.

Ok, re-reading that, I don't blame myself for not taking note of the 'landowner' part. It could easily have been a fictional piece of land. Or land strictly owned by the Guild for Guild matters, but where the on-paper ownership is still free to be given to whatever fake identities need some more legitimacy. Either way, not land that she could in any way try to use.
An actual plot of actual useful land, with no apparent Guild involvement at all, is a pretty big bonus I didn't expect her to get.
Zagreus 30th Jun 2017, 12:30 PM edit delete reply
So lemme guess... She owns the place so she's the new paymaster?
It's a wonder she still works for the guild, because they certainly seem to love torturing her.
Malroth 30th Jun 2017, 4:28 PM edit delete reply
Pretty much the entire plot from the second session is her trying to get out of the guild without killing them all or being marked for death herself

My mom has an old short comic series where a knight and dragon worked their way across the land conning folks. One of their capers included getting a deed to a ranch. A SPIDER ranch. Guess how well it was making money, and the ranch hands were demanding their backpay.
