Author's note: To the readers of tomorrow: Hello, thank you for reading this far. The following is a little April's fool chapter I came up with. It's actually an ending I toyed with for a time, before finally discarding it. While it would have been funny to me to end things in such a cliche way, it would not be fair to the story to do so. I don't take my story overly seriously, but even I know a bad ending can ruin a tale. I felt if there was one day I could get away with posting this, it was April Fools Day. More chapters follow of course.
Twilight Sparkle furiously went through her monster manual. "Here it is, a Great Wyrm Prismatic Dragon: CR 66. Oh, this is not good."
Pinkie looked over her shoulder. "Looks fun! Oh... That could be bad."
Applejack was looking over her sheet for encounter abilities, she had saved them for the end boss. "What's up Sparkle?"
Twilight held the book up. She pointed to a certain passage. "It's apparently immune to any light based attacks. 'Prismatic dragons cannot be harmed by any light, including Evocation [Light] spells, searing light, and the various prismatic (sphere, spray, wall) spells. In addition, they are immune to any spell or effect that causes blindness.' That basically nullifies the elements. Guys even with the npc element bearers I think we're hosed."
Rarity pored over her spell sheet. "Perhaps a "wish" spell? We could try to counteract it’s natural defenses."
Twilight shook her head sadly, "Wish is kinda limited in the latest update, it can duplicate spell effects but this is a natural immunity. You can try for more grand effects but phrase it just the wrong way and the DM will screw us over with something worse." She glared at the pony waiting patiently for them to finish their little planning session. He grinned back.
Fluttershy meekly spoke up. "Maybe if we asked for godly intervention? I haven't asked my deity for anything this session..."
Twilight considered, but then remembered last session. "You ticked off the DM last week by asking your deity to grant you a grain sack of plenty to take care of your animal companions. He said your deity cut you off for a week until you learn to stop making petty requests."
Rainbow laughed. "Gals I got this, me and Tornado are gonna whip the skies into a funnel of death and watch it tear this thing apart."
The DM called over to the group. "You ready? I need to get this rolling or we'll have to pack it up and wait for next week."
Twilight sighed. "Ready girls?"
Everypony rolled for initiative. Pinkie rolled an 18, Twilight a 14, Rarity rolled 13, Fluttershy a 1. Pinkie winced. "Flutters, you need a new d20, that one is cursed."
Rainbow Dash grinned from ear to ear. "Natural 20, that's how I roll!"
The DM noted the scores. "The Dragon rolls a 17-"
Rainbow grinned even wider. "Okay, so Pinkie and I go first. Pinkie you sing us a song to boost our INT, we're gonna need it to do more damage with the Tornado-"
The DM held up a hoof. "You didn't let me finish. It has improved initiative, that's a total score of 21. Dragon goes first."
The DM rolled. "Biting attack, called shot, 86 points of damage. He just bit off Tornado's wing." He rolled again. "Cleave, called shot, 108 points of damage. Dash your left wing is gone. You'll survive the fall but you're both grounded."
Dash looked over her sheet. She needed to be in the air to move the clouds. This bucked up everything! "You know what? Buck this game, and buck you for wasting nearly two months of my time only to pit me against something I can't beat!" She grabbed her dice bag in her teeth and stormed off.
Twilight watched her friend walk away. "Sorry girls, lemme talk to her tomorrow. See if she cools off."
Everypony packed up, the game, for the moment, was over.
And there we have it, the end of my fic. I hope you enjoyed it everypony. No, quit looking at the calendar, there is no way I would troll all you fine people just because of a date. No way at all. That's totally the ending. Yep, nothing more to come. The whole thing has been just a D&D game. Yep, worst ending ever. I know, I am a horrible horrible person. Oh, and if you haven’t figured it out by now, yes, more chapters to follow.
