If they're ready for it, DMs can enjoy a bit of chaos too... because they can add even worse chaos.

Also, I'm gonna have Desert Bus for Hope 2017 in the background all week (except when I run another session of DCO Sunday afternoon) and so should you!

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

Is this one of those "The 'royal inbred lunatic' is standing behind me, isn't she?" sort of situations?

More like, "the royal inbred lunatic" is the one being stood behind.

What was on Fluttershy's note?

Well, we are still missing the "animal stampede" scene...

And you're... going... to... LOOOOVE IIIIIT!
ZhonLord 18th Nov 2017, 9:18 AM edit delete reply
Only instead of "LOOVE MEEEE", it's going to be "BLUUEEE BLOOOOD!"

Oh no, it'll be Snuggleberry all over again.

Rarity is cute when she's covered in frosting.

Ah, the escalation of chaos. Like the one Shadowrun session where a stake out had poor communication between GM and the PCs so we jumped into a straight up firefight. Starget with gunfire, then went up to fully automatic gunfire, then people were throwing grenades and then a car got used as a battering ram...

We got shot up good, but there wasn't anything left for the cops to identify. :3

That reminds me of a Shadowrun game where our physical adept decided to cover our escape from an enemy facility by shooting the gas tank on one of the semis in the parking lot. He did, and there was a spectacular explosion... followed by SCREAMING because the driver was still in the sleeper cab. The fire spread to the other trucks, and the horror of the scene was enough of a distraction that we just stole a loaded truck and went out through the front gate.
To make sure no one tailed us, we drove into the barrens and opened up the back. It was mostly loaded with medical supplies (that was the cover of the facility, i think) so i grabbed a nearby piece of debris and hit the side of the truck a few times and yelled "Free supplies!" before we headed off on foot. By the time anyone looking for us found it there was just part of the frame and engine block left... and nobody had seen anything.

...And... that would be why, by Fourth Edition, the Megacorps have begun to seriously question the wisdom of the whole Shadowrunning setup in the first place. "Maybe... maybe we should try to reign these guys in a bit? They're useful, but..."

Look, they wouldn't have to question the whole Shadowrun setup if their Johnsons learned how to communicate properly. It's not our fault that the Johnson didn't tell us that they wanted the abandoned apartment complex until after we leveled the whole thing with a few blocks of C4. But seriously, when you're asked to take out a gang hideout and the entire tower is literally swarming with the creeps, wouldn't you say "Screw it, we're not dealing with this. Where's the C4?"

Though missing out on all of the potential Karma and stuff that job could have brought us did a good job of making sure we never did that again.

And before anyone asks, yes we did hack into a construction company and made it look like they were the ones that scheduled the building for destruction that day. We may be lazy, but we're not stupid.... Most of the time.

Oh poor twilight.
belmontzar 18th Nov 2017, 8:52 PM edit delete reply
Actually Twilight could turn the whole thing around. "Oh great work Rarity! We knew he would be here, ofcourse and needed to help our Friend earn her revenge. We also knew because someone in the court forced us all to earn tickets, even after we saved the planet. When our Rarity was blacklisted simply for being part of a heroic team, we realised that the one to object, and the one who least wanted us there, would be Elusive. This would be one of the only times, when we knew both Elusive, and our princess, would be around at the same time."

DM: ...roll bluff. And take a +3 for thinking fast on your feet.
Twilight: *roll* *nat 1* Oh crap!
DM: Hmm...Celestia gives you a long look, then smiles.
Celestia: Nicely plotted, Twilight. Is that why you didn't want me stopping greeting ponies? Very clever of you. So what now?
Twilight: Eh?
Celestia: You seem to have this plan worked now that you've exposed Elusive, what do you intend to do about it? Without evidence beyond one mare's testimony, I can't really take direct action without implications of tyranny. So what will you do?
Twilight: ...oh crap!
Celestia: Down this hall, third door on the left.
Twilight: Hey! That wasn't in character!
DM: I know. Just messing with you. So what now?

Or GMs can just sit back and let the world react as PC-induced chaos unfolds.

Not too long ago in a session I was GMing, two gangs were having a dance-off. (It was an excuse by the underlings of both sides to call a truce in their superiors' feud.) So what do the PCs do? Step in the middle of it and win, invalidating the "tails we win heads you lose" type condition the two sides had set up. Chaos itself was the goal of these PCs, as a distraction while two of them split off to pull shenanigans.

I find it interesting that the male pony in Panel 1 has Orion as his cutie mark. Not only is this our Earth, but there are stories of human-shaped hunters?

Humanoid? Maybe it's a Diamond Dog in ponyverse?
IcyPhenix 19th Nov 2017, 5:38 PM edit delete reply
Or a Minotaur. They're even more humanoid.
