Glorious!

I'm speaking of Trixie, of course.

And I'm kinda curious what the tree has to say, too...

Good luck, hope you win!

Okay, this was cute and fun.
...but now I kinda wanna see a sequel/continuation with that O&O campaign.

lol. Short, cute, and funny. This was a great little distraction.

Circular breathing!!! :rainbowlaugh::rainbowlaugh:

The part about being able to talk to the palace was by far the most interesting world building part.

That was not at all what I expected, but I love it! Pinkie and Maud talking to the castle was the best part. I really want to see more fics use that concept.

I'm curious, how long are Trixie's trilled r's? Like, when you type out a string of r's, how much time is each supposed to represent?

All of it was humorous! Congrats!

Seconded. Both sentiments, seconded.

:trixieshiftleft: The Grrrrreat and Powerrrrrful Trrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrixie objects most strenuously! Trixie's dice are working against her!

:facehoof: You rolled a 19, Trixie.

:trixieshiftleft: The genuine Trrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrixie never gets a skill roll under 20!

(Sorry for the long delay. The plan was to write this once I was at home. Then I got a bit preoccupied with the flu.)

Spike glared as Twilight teleported in a character sheet. "Twilight, we talked about this."

She offered a smile, or at least exposed teeth. "Come on, we already have an oversized party. What harm could it do?"

He crossed his arms. "The last time you played Amaranth, she one-shot the boss so hard it set my campaign notes on fire. Literally."

"Let Trixie guess," guessed Trixie, "typical glory-hogging wizard doing literally everything just because she can."

Twilight snickered. "Please, I outgrew wizards back before my brother stopped letting me play with his group."

"You have a brother?" said Trixie.

"My point is that magic is a crutch for optimizers—"

Spike coughed in a way that sounded suspiciously like "Munchkins."

"Optimizers who want to take the easy route to winning O&O." After a moment, Twilight added, "Besides, the actual magic system is laughable. Yak Stance might have been an incredible fantasy writer, but he was no thaumologist."

"Um..." Fluttershy raised a wing. "How do you win at Ogres and Oubliettes? I thought it was like playing a story."

"It is," said Spike, "unless you're somepony like Twilight. Then it's a math problem to solve. Like how to get one of the least physically capable races to deal triple-digit damage with one swing of her sword."

"All Trixie got from that is that she'll be better at magic than Sparkle in the game. Trixie approves!"

I don't know, I can see Starlight as a munchkin, but I see Twi as more the 'I spent three years making this maile hauberk in the precise style of an obscure twelfth century craftsman from Eastern Bohemia for my LARP campaign.' heavy role-playing type.

oh, you made me think of that Online comic "goblin hollow" where someone used "munchkin" to describe a "neutral/neutral" character...

I was expecting a Smash 4 joke here, but this is so much better. I do love stories where it's like everyone acts like 'Are we friends? I mean, kinda???'. Great work!
