    Writing trouble

    I'm gonna be honest. These last two months have been super tough for me. Not asking for pity or anything, but I've had to put my dog down and my Grandfather's been in and out of ICU for a while now with brain surgeries.

    Mentally, I'm just exhausted.

    I'm BAAAACK!

    Who missed me? I got distracted by real life and a few video games, but I've finally forced myself out of the ditch I found myself in. I'll get to writing more often, I promise!

How did you came with idea of the Duck? What would be Arca's counterpart doing in EQG universe?

Is it ok for you that i took arca and juniper and put them in my D&D game?

Ah, The Duck. The biggest accidental villain I've ever made. So, back in the very first chapter that was a list of things to not do around Arca (Memo to the Holiday Help), I included the following two lines.

-Don't ask about the duck
-SERIOUSLY, DON'T ASK ABOUT THE DUCK

Naturally, peoe started asking. The Duck recieved further mention in every list chapter, and eventually I was asked aboht it wnough that I decided to write it into the story.

So, originally? The Duck was two lines meant to be a one-off joke.

Go right ahead, I'm flattered! Remember that Arcane rolls with advantage for anything Alchemy related. Except for mane growth potions. That's an automatic nat 1, no exceptions.

5050017
Mind if I hoped into that game? (I know it's a no, but you knew somepony was going to ask that.)

5050042
Ah, and I just went and asked about it. Thankfully, I never mentioned mane growth products

What about the second question?

5050183
Oh, dear! I missed that part. I had someone say that he'd probably be the 'fun' chemistry teacher. In my opinion, though, he'd probably be a pharmacist. Who makes all the medicine himself.

so joining is not realy an option
but in a month or so im out and then we can start a game
if my englisch is not to bad :derpytongue2:

I started reading The Potion Shop without ever knowing that it was tied into Prank War until reading it in the comments. Have you considered adding a story note to the description about which stories occupy the same universe and continuity?

5050538
I guess? The stories exist in ths same continuity, but aren't required reading. It's entirely possible to read one and never see the other, which was intentional because I wanted one comedy with a human and one without. That way it appeals to both tastes!
