Adventures in Equestria

Okay, I'm not sure how much of an April Fool's gag this is, as it's intended to be fully playable.

Last year (though not on April Fool's Day) I did a write-up of Twilight Sparkle from My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. I suggested that if someone wanted to be serious about it, they could do custom character templates to represent the character types from that show. Somewhere between serious and silly, here we go.

(For the record, I do not consider myself a brony.  I enjoy the show because it's well written and doesn't pander to its audience. I also have more fun geeking out about other things.)

Couldn't find your e-mail, but wanted to let you know my copy of your game just arrived via Amazon and it looks really great. I like the informative quotations and little bits of history sprinkled throughout and the system
seems nice and light, something I can imagine my kids playing when they're a little older. Haven't read ANY Oz books yet but your game makes me want to--I'm trying to find nicely illustrated ones for my kids. Well done!

I heartily recommend the Books of Wonder editions if you can get your hands on them. They're pretty good reproductions of the original editions with lots of fun illustrations.
