PnD:Return to the Castle of the Royal Pony Sisters by RobD2003 PnD:Return to the Castle of the Royal Pony Sisters by RobD2003
Well, I said I'd do a scene with all of 'em, and here it is. The only thing I didn't include was Spike, and that's becasue I think he just would've been too small to really see.

Speaking of which, this file is larger than I would usually post, and the reason is simple: I had to draw all that detail, and by gum, you're going to look at it. Although, I think I could've gotten away with a slightly smaller pic, somewhere in the 900-1000 LxW pixel range....oh well. Hopefully I won't have too many mistakes showing.

Anyway, there's a lot going on here (or at least if felt like it). You can subscribe to whatever sequence of events you'd like, though I personally like to think the group has saved Fluttershy a roasting with a hail-mary pass of color spray and ranged grapples to stun the dragon for a round and then distract it, all the while whisking our fair druid away with a timely teleport.
Makes me want to write up an adventure....

There's a few Easter eggs in the pic; "The secret to my excess" did me the great favor of introducing capes for the cast, which as soon as I saw, I realized was missing from Applejack's look.
There's another one or two things, here and there, nothing much, but have fun looking for them.

I noticed a certain someone on the far left.  Could this imply that reinforcements are about to arrive?  Namely, these girls:

Rarity looks... yummy.

As in the hero from The Legend of Zelda. It's the sword hilt that makes me think that: looks an awful lot like the Master Sword.

I'm actually not that familiar with the Zelda series, so it's no wonder that one flew over my head.

If only there were some trees around. Then FLuttershy could be using teleport via plant, which is a surprisingly useful spell.

I presume that that this is when the party collected their second set of magical items, a certain group of metaquest-specific necklaces known as "The Elements of Harmony".

FWIW, Dash has the right idea. At a certain point, all the tactics and planning in the world are just taking up time. You just have to get in close and start pounding away until something breaks (hoping, of course, that it isn't you).

YES! Fantasy humanization! Nice choice. Though I always pictured Rarity as a rouge and Applejack as a melee fighter. Maybe I'm getting that from Friendship is Dragons. Anyway, fantastic picture!
