Offical My Little Pony Roleplaying Game To Be Created By River Horse

Posted by: Jason Silverain / Category: , , , ,

With the success of Ponyfinder and its Kicker Starter to create a expansion for Dungeons & Dragons 5th Edition it seems Hasbro has decided to enter the market with their own official My Little Game and have now allowed a company called River Horse to obtained the license to create an official Friendship is Magic pen and paper RPG.

Now this may be a bit of old news but the developers have given a twenty minute interview about the project: (Interview at the 41m53s mark)


Since then information has been quiet for some time but in the last week there have been some reveals by River Horse.

From River Horse Press release: 

You want to see something cool? Check out the full cover of My Little Pony: Tails of Equestria by clicking on the picture above (or here!). You see? Pretty cool, that's what you will have to be looking out for later this year when we release the full game! For those of you not in the know, we at River Horse have been working our hooves to the bone to bring MLP and traditional roleplay gaming (RPGs) together (MLPRPG or Milerperpegeh) and its been a blast! I thought I would take this moment to talk a little about the cover, a hugely important part of any book!

What design choices went into the cover?

We knew pretty early on what we wanted out of the cover, we wanted to show anyone who looked at it what they would be getting when they opened the book, that is to say ponies and adventure! Working with the fantastic Amy Mebberson, we decided that catching an adventuring party halfway through their travels would give the best impression. So it went that we created a party, following the classic three person fighter/wizard/rogue set up that is such a staple in traditional roleplaying games. My little pony is a fantastic introduction to roleplaying games partly because of its vibrant world and varied species which meant we could show the magical unicorns, strong earth ponies and speedy pegasi in an instant and people would immediately identify with the archetypal party we made. After that it was a matter of placing them in an adventure (navigating through the Everfree forest!) and the rest fell into place.

The team is planning on releasing this at the end of the year right now, but nothing is set in stone for specific dates.
