Comic description

A screencap comic of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. Equestria is a custom campaign setting for Dungeons and Dragons, and the mane six are Player Characters. How will a party of six roleplayers fare in a world where the usual hack-'n'-slash high fantasy has been replaced by pastel-colored ponies?

Oh yeah, so brilliant. People already figured this out ages ago. It literally happened in the episode itself. You're not some uber genius for stating it on the page where it's explicitly made clear.

What personal growth and story? They're all acting completely counter to their natural personalities, how are they supposed to get "personal growth" out of this? And like Digo has said, all they're doing is making little quips based on their new personalities instead of trying to figure out how to still be helpful with them. If anything, Rarity has actually regressed back to her original greedy personality.

First, hi everyone. First post here so how are you all. Plesentry aside, I think alot of you are getting too mad at someone. Wither that is discord, mane 6, or other commentors. Like the discordm is bad for pull rp relationship problems,or twilight is not into the roleplay, or the cursed ponies are to focused on the rp to move on with the plot. I feel you guys are missing something here.

The way I see it is that discordm set up a boss fight that is intentionally impossible to physically fight except for magic based on socal links.So boss makes traps that the players willing take the traps/curses that hurt socal links for story/fun reasons. Leader of party doesn't get a direct trap. Leader wants to get rid of traps since she see them as walls and not the storyline. Leader gets annoyed at players for not willingly lose the trap/curses when given a freebie. Trapped players deny freebie so personal growth and story can fill out naturally. Leader doesn't get that and is trying to skip the problem to get to the end. Trying to solve the problem without trying to solve the problem.

Did I miss anything?

You know, when they were told a few pages back that their curses began to destabilize, and Twilight and Rainbow called them on not taking the opportunity to be cured, Discord said something interesting. He made a remark about how roleplaying is about finding the "unexplored depths of a character." The thing is, however, that they are playing characters who are fundamentally different.

This is NOT who these characters are. Who they are has been deliberately subverted. This by itself is not a great crime against roleplay, but it is counter to Discord's stated rationale. Moreover, one might read this refusal to switch back as a sort of player despair, where they think there is no reason to expect an all-powerful chaos being to NOT affect them. At the player-level, they have moved to the point of deliberately thwarting Twilight rather than simply complying with their compulsions. Having been on the receiving end of group hazings, it is not always uncalled for or unfunny, but things are obviously moving away from where Twilight can consider this treatment to be "in good fun."

Well no one's rolling Sense Motive on her, so we don't know when she's lying and when she's not.
