It's another session of my new campaign, Dusk City Outlaws, and it ends... somewhat explosively.

Session 4 - The Little Museum Job, Part 2: Libsyn YouTube

Also, I'm considering making changes to how I edit the tabletop podcasts, which you can read about here.

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

"Got any nephews looking to get hitched? Maybe one of your rich ones?"

I've never run a campaign where a PC gets married during the course of events. Closest was one where the ranger and one of the clerics got hitched after the campaign ended, in a "Where are they now" kind of discussion we had at the end of the session (I was curious to know who would retire and who wouldn't).

The rogue had the most interesting ending. He said he'd travel the land paying reparations to all the NPCs the party wronged during the campaign. But he'd only do so by way of breaking into their homes and reverse pickpocketing the money to them, along with an apology note.

Had the rogue's player read Pratchett's definition of an anticrime, by any chance?

Another facet of the anticrime is its corollary, whitemail.

Pretty sure the rogue's player read some Pratchett, so it's a possibility!

In my first one-shot that became the setting for a campaign, my character got hitched to the doctor who saved his life after the rest of the party died killing major public figures (accidentally or intentionally). Then he died of tuberculosis.

One of the games I ran, we had a party member, who's brilliant idea to get the dragon they had stolen from off their backs... was to propose to it.

His entire speech was talking about her, a mighty hundreds of years old dragon debasing herself to turn into a lesser creature and live amongst the rats essentially.

She proceeded to try and murder him. She only failed because Wardens in 4E are so durable.

Same here re: marriage. I once had a PC who was all-but-married to another for almost the entire campaign (they started as friends, and fell in love during the first few sessions out of...I think it was well over 100). The actual marriage waited until things calmed down (that is, until the epilogue after the adventure concluded), in part because he didn't want to leave either of them a widow(er).

I've never had a PC for a game I was running get married (I am a terribad GM), but I had a character I was playing get married in game. It was a lovely ceremony... though then said character had to run off and go do level 20 things, like saving the world, and losing something like 3-4 years of his life.

I think a funny plot twist would be if, in the process of trying to make Rarity an attractive match for a member of royalty, they go so far in the 'right' direction that the GM decides to mess with them by having Celestia herself take an interest.

That *pop* off in the distance is Twilight's player's head exploding.

I would love to see Twilight trying to figure out how to process Celestia flirting with Rarity.

Amusingly, in the Exalted campaign I'm currently in, one of my friends had his character not only get married - but married to a queen. The amusing part was how their relationship started: his character was attempting to be encouraging to her new friend by complimenting her on her eyes. And, in response to her roll for the moral fortifcation, the counterroll - to see how effective it was...


And thus "encouragement" became "...she just fell head over heels for you".

It took a little while before the Solar realised she had an admirer, with the cluelessness being hysterical. And they've wound up a disgustingly sweet couple.

(Meanwhile, my Terrestrial, who fell for her mentor during a training session for impersonation of 'dancing girls' - long story - is aiming for the harem route.)

That face of Rarity at the end... perfect choice of the frame!

Ok, let's try some Ad Libs.

Wonderbolts: She enjoys adventures, risking life and limb for the sake of her allies.

Farmers: Wants to protect the people from threats both large and small, everywhere.

Nobility: Well liked and respected by both royalty, and the law.

Animals: Cares for all living creatures, becoming friends with some too.

Celestia: She... uh... has a great sense of humor? I don't know, but better her then somepony you don't know.

For Celestia: she's the best protection re: assassination, political or otherwise

Considering we're talking about Blueblood, here, I could see Celestia consider it simply because if he proved *too* much of a hindrance, she could commission Rarity to do something about it.

Hold on I thought they were trying to boost dainty Dove not Rarity, Why directly say Rarity when your trying to make Dainty Dove?
Redwings1340 21st Jul 2017, 11:05 AM edit delete reply
My guess is that rarity thinks that celestia is already aware of the ruse, and is hoping to impress her by not hiding it.

There's also the fact that celestia knows rarity and if she sees dainty dove at the party, could out the secret at any time. Rarity is really relying on celestia to not do so.

Has this topic been covered on the net elsewhere? Blueblood is Celestia's (however many times great)nephew. Does this mean that he is Luna's (many times) great grandson, or is there another sibling that's just never talked about?
