Fluttershy should roll to determine if the groundskeeper is bluffing XD

50% angry
50% annoyed
100% cute
ZhonLord 9th Sep 2017, 4:02 PM edit delete reply
With Fluttershy, anything less than 200% is unacceptable.

Seems legit.
Destrustor 10th Sep 2017, 1:56 AM edit delete reply
200% angry.
RuBoo 27th Nov 2019, 8:53 AM edit delete reply
...Needs to be about 20% cuter.

How more pages till she snaps(that focuses on her).
Me:I give her 4 pages.
Rastaba 9th Sep 2017, 7:30 AM edit delete reply
I disagree...I don't think she'll make it passed 3.

This social encounter is full of grievously annoying NPCs. How long will it take for them to burn it all down?
Skorzah 9th Sep 2017, 9:28 AM edit delete reply
Not long, I suspect. And I don't even think it will be rainbow for once.
Evilbob 9th Sep 2017, 9:29 AM edit delete reply
If the author is following and planning on using the disaster scenes from the Grand Galloping Gala...

Not long at all. Not long at all, my friend.

Considering that the T.G. is working against them, how long do you think that the party is going to suffer a ruined reputation?
Specter 9th Sep 2017, 11:44 AM edit delete reply
Yeah, that actually makes sense to me. It's like thrill seeking, except running for your life instead of parachuting, or something normal like that.

Philadelphus 9th Sep 2017, 11:57 AM edit delete reply
Yeah, that actually sounds like a lot of fun.

So... what I'm seeing is that the Groundskeeper is one of two things:

1.) The reason the animals are so skittish, and a few pancakes short of a full stack.
2.) Working with/Been paid off by the Thieves Guild.

I am really thinking its the latter.
darkgloomie 9th Sep 2017, 3:03 PM edit delete reply
by the end of the arc it'll turn out every party-goer is really a Thieves Guild stooge, won't it?

Digo Dragon
In a D&D 3.5 campaign, our party got ambushed by a group of (and this is what the GM described them as) Ape Commandos. The repelled down from the trees using these rope and pulley systems and attacked us with long spears. It was a challenging fight.

After we killed them off, the monk and I attempted to recover these rappelling devices they used to get down from the high treetops. The GM said no, we can't because they're too complex. You'd need to be an engineer.

The monk then shows that he has Engineering as one of his knowledge skills. I assist and make the DC to give the monk a bonus, and the Monk rolled a total of 26 for his engineering check on figuring them out. The GM says no, the pulleys don't work like we know pulleys to work.

"Are they magical?"

The GM says no. They just work different.

This is when we both pretty much echo Fluttershy in the last panel. Because we both know how repelling devices work and a non-magical repelling device is not going to work so differently for an ape as it would for a human that we, with a combined check of 26 can't figure out.

That Doesn't Make Any Sense.

I believe the appropriate response is 'Choo-choo'

"Don't have the enemies use any equipment you're not willing to have the party exploit."

Had a GM once that ran a Vampire game in which a group of Hunters had dart guns specially designed to knock out Kindred. My character thought this was awesome and successfully stole one during his imprisonment. Three storylines later, he busts it out to shoot the big bad the GM was trying to throw at us. I could _see_ the GM go "I could say it doesn't work because... no I already told them it specifically ignores that. I could... no I told them it ignores that too." Eventually just let us get away with it (never did find a replacement dart, though).

Vampire is actually EASIER to pull that sort of thing, as a smart/mean DM could make it so that the special weapons are both very rare, and minor holy artifacts that only work for people with faith, or that the materials to make them are super rare.
Evilbob 12th Sep 2017, 3:33 PM edit delete reply
The flipside corollary of that, Broney, is "Don't use any tactics or strategies you're not willing to have the GM exploit".

Dear god I'd WISH the DM came up with half the stuff the party does.

I even gave a list of exploitable weaknesses of my character to the DM and he ignored it and made anime-references instead.
I mean, I'm on board with them, but still .-.

The screenshot selection here is on point.

Yes Flutters, you are in magical horseworld with herbivores on top of the foodchain and the magic of friendship, but THAT doesn't make sense :P
