Applejack's line low-key represents one of my main anxieties about this new plotline. Discord's challenging to write at first, and I'm discovering he's fun once you get rolling and he bounces off the other characters... but the trick will be in how to keep that going in an interesting way.

I'm sure you'll manage it, dude. You've made some interesting characters in the past, and kept the ball rolling pretty nicely too. Looking forward to how you manage this one.

Can I steal twilights threat for some of my own works? Ima do it anyways.

Consider yourself lucky Ms. Roy-g-biv that I don't... Now there's an idea.

So are you show discord or comic discord? Because I’m honestly confused right now (which I suppose means your doing your job)

Upon reading the author notes and your anxieties my initial thoughts were like: "Don't worry, you have the co-DM to help you out", before I realised both DMs are written by you. I'm getting too involved! ^^'

(which might actually be a sign of good writing?)

It's actually not a terrible idea. Force the multiple personalities living in his head for free to pay some rent by helping out on the storyline.

I totally trust you.
Do your best (or I should mean 'your worst') and Discord will stay as great as he is right now.

I'm really curious and impatient to see the maze section.

My first thought is a 'change alignment' spell. Have to have the players split up for that to possibly work, though. And feel guilty about keeping Twilight, the only one not 'in the know', in the dark. No clue if that's where this is going. This is a hard arc to roleplay-ify.

Funnily enough, in the comics, Pinkie totally does out-chaos him and handily. It's actually rather clever that he ends up prevailing due to the "Lord" part of his title as "Lord of Chaos".

Can you elaborate on this please?

I assume that he wins on the technicality that, being a commoner (and also female), pinkie pie can not qualify as the “lord”of anything.

Spoiler warning,
But honestly you should have already read the comics.

In the comic when pinkie takes over his dimension, discord challenges pinkie to a contest and basically only reacts to what she does. basically forcing pinkie to use up all her ideas first. Allowing discord to win by default.

I've seen it pointed out that she's not that creative with it either. :P Problem with a single author writing chaos things, I suppose.

Can I get that enchantment for my house windows? Hurricane protection ought to lower my homeowner insurance premiums by hundreds.
Wulfraed 13th May 2018, 7:05 AM edit delete reply
But that was Rainbow Dash, not Commander Hurricane!

I know, but I get Hurricane coming around every couple years and it gets old.

I'm pretty sure if it can stand up to Miss Sonic Rainboom, it's strong enough to handle a few storms.

I'm personally looking forward to the next page, where the others convince Fluttershy to take a stab at intimidating Discord, 'Discord' gets interested when someone mentions how she made a dragon burst into tears, DM comments the phone call is voice only so 'the Stare' isn't going to come into effect...

And then Fluttershy either wimps out or is totally savage.

The "And noted" said by Discord after Pinkie Pie's boast... Ouch
If I were Pinkie Pie's player, I would be worried. It's never good when a GM says this that way, especially an antagonist GM.
ZhonLord 14th May 2018, 2:32 PM edit delete reply
"Noted." The equivalent of "Challenge accepted". Fun times incoming.
Balrighty 15th May 2018, 7:53 AM edit delete reply
Wow, I'm ashamed this took me this long to get. Rainbow Dash just smacked into a window in which Discord was projecting himself. In the first episode of TNG, Worf was all but going to phaser the viewscreen in which Q was projecting himself. Coincidence? I think not.
