Tails of Equestria Official MLP RPG: Add on Products announced.

Posted by: Jason Silverain / Category: ,

Some of you may have heard about the official My Little Pony pen and paper roleplay game in development by River Horse and is available to pre-order for its March 14th release date along with its two expansions. 

In anticipation of its release and to wage yet another attack on the wallets of its fans an announcement about the various gaming aids and future add ons has been released.
A few of these include:

  • Tokens of Friendship - Tiny crystals that play into the friendship system in game. 
  • Dice - Character coloured dice, including Starlight Glimmer.
  • Expansion books - Supplements to the core books including bestiaries and other information
  • Game master screen - With a map of Equestria on the front. 
  • Create Griffon, Dragon, and Other non-pony characters!

While Ponyfinder is still the popular alternative and possibly more suited towards fans of more rule heavy systems,  when looking at the released character sheet examples River Horse seems to be aiming towards a simplified system which is more accessible to younger audiences.
Even the upcoming adventure "The Curse Of The Statuettes!" sounds like something that could happen in the show:
All over Equestria ponies have started to turn into statuettes, figurine versions of themselves. Nopony knows why, nopony knows when and to make it all worse, nopony knows where the Mane six have gone! It looks like it’s up to you to travel to distant lands, overcome terrifying danger and save ponyville, neigh the world!
In The Curse of the Statuettes ponies will explore the mysterious badlands and have to find ways to befriend or outfox the many ponies and creatures they will meet. Creatures such as the Roc, a mythical bird that uses its massive size and slate-like feathers to intimidate anypony who gets in its way or the greedy Dr Caballeron, caring more for wealth than for than good of ponykind!
This isn't a terrible thing mind you and it will be great to see how well the system works upon its release.
