We had a session of Pony Tales Paranoia yesterday! Here's a summary of what happened:

(Zarhon) The almighty DM
(Kajisora) Trigger the Unicorn - Magic Monitor
(Eightscape/Doc Pseudopolis) Jim-R-Peg the Pegasus - Equipment Officer
(Z2) Anne the Zebra Pegasus - QL Engineer & Team Leader
(Bronymous) Pleasant Mist the Earth Pony - Task-Bucker

- The party starts in a vid-game arcade, chilling.
- FC appears on all screens, orders them to report to briefing zone. They have no idea where it is.
- A pair of nat20 rolls later, they find themselves in the briefing zone, where FC greets them, commending them on their speed.
- The get their mission: Investigating meteorological disturbances in sector DRP-3. Due to not all of them being able to fly/weathercraft, they are promised equipment to help with that issue.
- Their mission is given the codname "NOH" and they are all ordered to keep it a secret.
- Jim promptly gets vaporized for saying "no", breaking the above order.
- They are sent to a wall-eyed equipment officer, who gives them their equipment. Most of it ends up being unused: A biohazard mask (unused), 40 stryofoam cups, a crate of apple (they didn't figure out how to open it though), a utility belt (unused), goggles (unused), a metal stick device, rubber gloves, a multicorder, a bot (unused), and a rope (unused).
- They were then assigned their research equipment:
Gravitational Amplification Device (weight on a chain)
Experimental drug 0W13
Docbot-in-a-box
Cranium-mounted discordian ability detection device (promptly killed Pleasant Mist)
Nuclear Grenade
HyperAnswer orb
Super Absorber (sponge, with a requirement of 50 uses to be found for it)
Inert Gas Discharge Tube (a lamp, but they didn't know this)
Hyper-realistic no-fail traitor infiltration kit (transformed its wearer into a changeling, who prompty got shot for treason)
Hyper-hacker drive
Hyper-hacking drive

- They also get Hoof-mounted moisture stabilizers, which let them fly and walk on clouds. Pleasant Mist only gets two, leaving her wobbling in the air.
- They're then sent to mission. They immediately see the area is a bit flooded, weird clouds are in the air, a few bots are on the fritz, and a citizen is rolling in the water.
- They all sneak off and get their secret society missions
- The rolling citizen is found to be euphoric and mentally damaged from a happiness drug, found in one of the clouds
- A metallic cloud, on interaction, does nothing
- Anne fixes a Jack-o-bot who yields little useful information
- A scrub-bot is equally annoying/uncooperative
- Pleasant mist touches a blue, wobbling cloud, which makes it smear her in blue.
- Everyone tries to shoot her. They fail, as their lasers mysteriously stopped working. Pleasant Mist's stabilizers also malfunction, causing her to fall and break all her legs.
- Decisively, Jim attacks her with his stabilizers. They accidentally activate, metling Mist's face with a rocket-jet blast, and sending Jim flying uncontrollably.
- Jim crashes into a seemingly ordinary cloud that devours him. It then sinks from the weight of the gravity amplifier, and starts hopping towards the team.
- Anne sics the scrub-bot at the cloud, who annihilates it.
- The destroyed clouds quickly get replaced by a cloud-bot on a nearby weather facility. Anne tries to negotiate to make it stop, but it refuses.
- Trigger uses his gas discharge device and it hums ominously. He quickly throws it at another cloud, causing it to start leaking water at a immense rate, flooding everything below. The device lands, breaks, and electrocutes the water, and Trigger with it.
- Mist shoots the water-leaking cloud, causing it to explode water all around. Everyone but Anne and Mist are electrocuted, and fall into the electric water.
- Anne attempts a rescue mission, but almost succumbs to death herself as the gravity amplifier pulls Jim deeper into the water.
- The cloud bot breaks from the water damage.
- The party fiddles around with more clouds. Trigger tries to fix a artificial moon (which shouldn't be up), but fails. He then inspects a artificial sun, which appears to have too low a light. Within it's casing, a fusion rod is located.
- The metallic cloud from before somehow reached a nearby antenna on another building, causing a big storm that starts sucking in the clouds.
- Anne tests her hyperanswer orb, gets a number of useless answers, one of which gets her accused of treason, another gets her an intelligence test that forces her a brainscrubbing later.
- Anne then tests her Docbot - it quickly murders her as it attempts to remove her molars with a spinning sawblade, removing her upper skull in the process.
- Storm eventually mixes all the clouds and covers the sector, and would have killed everyone within it, had Trigger not wisely dropped his nuclear grenade into the artificial sun and shot it with his laser, causing it to become a less-artificial sun.
- Clones are brought to debriefing to a reasonably peeved Friend Computer.
- Jim offs himself with his laser, Anne gets executed for treason by Mist. Computer takes Anne's reports and the teams research experimentation as a "partial success". Survivors are carted off back to their usual citizen duties.

Races are backwards. I would never play a Zebra pretending to be a Pegasus.

You're right, you caught me. I was a Zebra, pretending to be a Pegasus, but was disguised as an Earth Pony the whole time.
