    Answer my question with a question

    Did you know that Bat ponies might be called either Thestrals (after the Potterverse critters) or Noctrals (from Gulheru's fanfic "Interview with a Batpony")? Bonus: - Original fic: https://www.fimfiction.net/story/142177/interview-with-a-batpony - Youtube:

    annoying enemies

    From the (ancient) PC game Dungeon Master (for the Amiga), there were the Gigglers. Creepy little thieves, they were weak and had no physical attack, but they would steal your stuff! You had to chase them down and kill them to make them drop it.

    Was this thread started before there was a Fanclub Fortress sub-forum?

    Hello!

    As an old-school anime fan, when I see EDF my first reaction is still: Earth Defense Force (Star Blazers).

    What game are you playing right now?

    COVID-19 has brought a halt to the Savage Worlds campaigns we've been participating in at our friendly local gaming story (Dragon Snack Games in Buffalo, NY).
  7. I might be of some use for editorial feedback and maybe some scripting, but I am certainly no artist!

    Are there any bronies in Virginia?

    EQD member Demise seems to live in Springfield, VA. I'm not sure where that is relative to Blacksburg.
  9. I came up with this a few months ago and just recently revised it. I game my Bat ponies Stout Heart (D4) because it works well for my conception of them as being stronger and more robust than a Pegasus and because I saw that this was also done with the Kirin. BAT PONY (CREATURE OF THE SKY) Talents: Fly (D6), Night Vision (D4), Stout Heart (D4), Pick one appropriate Cutie Mark talentQuirks: Weakness: Bright Light (D6), Choose one Accustomed to the harsh winds of the Trotsylvanian Alps, Bat ponies are strong flyers--though not as agile as Pegasi--with bat-like wings, tufted ears and cat-like eyes with slit pupils that allow them to see very well at night. They typically have gray coats, black wings and dark-colored manes and tails, though other coat and mane colors do occur. It's true that Bat ponies have fangs, mostly used for sucking the juice out of fruits--a favorite being mangoes. Bat ponies dwell in a chain of mountains located east of Equestria, and might be related to Pegasi (though Bat ponies themselves dispute this). Bat ponies make up the Night Guard of Princess Luna.Bat ponies are nocturnal by nature. Prolonged, unprotected exposure to sunlight or other bright light can cause blindness that lasts from several hours up to a couple of days. Their unusual appearance and nocturnal habits, combined with a reputation for fierceness, have given rise to the rumor that Bat ponies are vampires; however, this is just a tall tale spread by superstitious ponies.Night Vision (D4) pony with this talent can see very well in the dark, though not in complete blackness. The downside is that the pony also gains the quirk of Weakness: Bright Light

    Is FlutterCord cannon?

    Well, it's still open to interpretation, but as far as I'm concerned FlutterCord is confirmed (as is AppleDash).

    Bat Pony Home-brew for Tails of Equestria

    It's come to my attention that the name Thestrals is not only from the Harry Potter books, but was actually coined by J.K. Rowling. That being the case, it might not be the best name for Equestrian Bat ponies. There are, however, a couple of bat-winged horses from Portuguese legends that might be of use. From No1MporXant over at Deviant Art: I'm not sure that I would have Bat ponies breathe fire, but they might call themselves the Cavalum (both singular and plural). Weather-control is particularly fitting for flying Ponies of Equestria. The fanfic "Interview with a Batpony" by brony Gulhero introduces the term noctral (or Noctral; pronounced nok-TRRRAHL), which in the ancient dialect of the Bat ponies would translate as "night-dweller"

    Hi! I haven't been here for very long, but welcome!
  13. Well in the movie, at least, Twilight brought much of that upon herself. What was she thinking with trying to steal from the Sea-ponies? Pinkie had it under control.

    Do you like She-Ra?

    I actually just (finally) finished the series. Very satisfying ending.
  16. The Lord of the RIngs Online (LOTRO) had a special Midsummer event featuring the wedding of Aragorn and Arwen. Part of Aragorn's vows reminded me of the union of Bright Macintosh and Pear Butter: "We are as two fair trees entangled beneath the Sun, rooted deep, drinking light together." - LOTRO

    Bright Mac & Pear Butter as Aragorn & Arwen

    I'm fine with your having moved the post (I should have clarified that before). I think, though, that it's fine now where it is. I probably would have posted it here myself if I'd given it more thought.

    Bright Mac & Pear Butter as Aragorn & Arwen

    It's the quote that reminded me of Bright Mac & Pear Butter and the entwined trees that represent their love.

    Season 8 DVD

    Ordered! Thanx!
  21. Given that Equestria is many centuries old and (let's face it) not all that big really, how is it that there are unexplored lands just to the west of the Smokey Mountains and Los Pegasus? Is this where the Pony tribes originally came from? How vast are these lands? What wonders or terrors might live there? Might the real Grogar be found there? Maybe it contains the ruins and relics of an ancient Alicorn Kingdom? Speculate away!

    Equestria - The Undiscovered West?

    The map is a revision of the original map of Equestria (which did not show lands to the west). It's considered to be canonical as far as I know, but I believe that the image was taken from the Tales of Equestria storytelling game. An expansion shows locations from the movie.

    Fire Department In Equestria

    Maybe there's something in the comics, though that is mostly secondary canon at best.

    Fire Department In Equestria

    Well, we do see AJ with a firepony's helmet and a fire truck in ep. 3 of Pony Life. Will that do ?

    Season 8 DVD

    That's okay, the last I knew there weren't any DVD season sets past Season Five (at least for the USA). Do I need to check again?
