I Always Imagined the Griffon Kingdom as all Games of Thrones like. Saturday is upon us again and with it another new episode of the show we love, so sit back and watch adorable ponies do adorable things! Or perhaps less than adorable griffons do, well, whatever they do! This episode, much like the Friends Forever comic series, focuses on two ponies, Pinkie Pie and Rainbow Dash. As the title suggests, this will be the first episode where we visit the realm of the griffins themselves. Will we get intrigue? Mystery? Mayhem? Party Canon? Tune in to find out! The episode airs Saturday 11:30 AM EST on May 23rd. This thread is dedicated to discussing the episode before, during, and afterwards. As the thread is now open it may indeed contain spoilers. I ask that potential spoilers talked about or shown before the episode airs stay within the spoiler tags please, after the episode you no longer have to use the spoiler tags, but warning, if you haven't seen the episode yet after it airs, this thread no doubt will have all sorts of spoilers in reviews, images, etc. So tread at your own risk.
Hello everypony! Flight Risk here (Risky if you prefer a shorter name to address me by), to tell you about a game idea I was hoping to run here on the Canterlot forums. Is anypony familiar with Pathfinder, or perhaps Dungeons & Dragons? If the answer is yes, draw yourself to the next question. If the answer is no and you wish to learn more, also draw yourself to the next question anyway! Have you ever seen the "Ponyfinder" rules for Pathfinder? These include several different ways to incorporate MLP: FiM into a fantasy-like setting (or a more modern one if that were preferred!) I have two links to show everypony to help them educate themselves on the subject matter I speak of: Pathfinder Classes: http://paizo.com/pathfinderRPG/prd/classes.html Race Guide: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1-GH6H2O2dYpkzSViZF9uS8keNAeMeLHDHId3vBjR9iY/edit?pli=1 Something to keep in mind about races and classes: I'm really leery about allowing evil races (like the Lunar Ponies, Changelings, and Dragons) unless the players are willing to play GOOD characters. Like, the exceptions to the rule, you know?) What I am to do is get a small group of players who are interested in playing to create characters (with a little help from your friendly neighborhood Game Master) and are willing to play in a setting shortly after, or many years before the current series. So, can I have a role call of interested ponies? Or perhaps I could field some questions?
After a long training session at the Wonderbolts academy, Spitfire is ready for some free flying adventure! She wishes to fly to BeakBreak city from Cloudsdale and then on to the Dragon Peaks. It has been rumored that volcanic eruptions have been occurring. Taking a flight through the volcanic area and possibly avoiding some spewing lava is just what this adventurous mare needs! IC thread can be found... HERE ACCEPTED PARTICIPANTS PyroBlaze with Xanmus Umbrus (pegasus) DerpRavener with 'Naj'/Spring Breeze (pegasus) ShadowWalking18 with Razor Ironclaw (griffon) SilverSwirl with Silverbolt (pegasus) zoebel12 with Mistralin (pegasus) We are FULL! Thanks for your interest in this everypony! UPDATES! The story thus far: Spitfire is tired from training recruits. She has flown from Cloudsdale to BeakBreak. She is currently sitting in an inn and has started a conversation with whichever pony responds to her first.
(Don't post in this thread unless you are on the list of accepted RPer's in this thread's OOC topic. ) "All right newbies! if you think you've impressed anypony today..." Spitfire moved until she was just underneath the nose of a big stallion recruit. "...think again!" She eyed him from under her sunglasses. The stallion gulped and backed up a pace. "Y-yes...m-mame!" The stallion appeared rattled from her intimidation tactics. Good! That was exactly what fresh Wonderbolt recruits needed. A dose of the old "You think you're hot stuff? Think again!" medicine. She had whipped the current batch into shape over the past two weeks and they would soon have their trial run at becoming a real Wonderbolt. Most of them would fail and that was ok with the fiery yellow mare. She only wanted the best by her side. "Alright, dismissed!" She could hear audible sighs of release at the order. "Hit the showers on the double!" Spitfire turned and trotted off. Her wing ponies could see to the recruits from here. As she kept up pace towards her office Spitfire let out a sigh of her own. She needed a break! It was tough working with recruits, it weighed on her nerves and her spirit. She needed some free time. A chance to stretch her wings and explore. Who knew she might even find a little adventure of her own. The mare ducked into her office and donned her traveling gear. She wouldn't dream of wearing her Wonderbolts uniform on the type of trip she had planned for herself. The last thing she needed was a bunch of fan ponies surrounding her and cramping her space. She pulled a leather bomber jacket over her torso and then tosses a packed pair of saddle bags onto her back. It wouldn't hurt to have the essentials with her. Soon Spitfire was airborne! She loved the feeling of the wind whipping through her mane and tail. a heavy breeze made her shiver as it ran furrows through her coat. It was good to be alone and in the air! She looked down through her flight goggles, noting her path over the top of the Everfree forest. At this rate it would take her a good couple of hours to get near BeakBreak City. The urban trade city was her stop over destination for the night before heading on to the Dragon Peaks! She had recently found out that the volcanic activity in the area of the Peaks was increasing. That would be something to see! -------- A few hours of flight later the pegasus was soaring of the north end of Roughrider Ridge. The Trensel River sparkled below her and as she looked further north she could just make out the ridge of mountains blocking the Badlands from the Ridge. It was beautiful. She did a few extra loops, just taking in the view. The feeling of the wind in her wing feathers made her smile as she flew on. This was the life! Free, with nopony asking her for help and trying to get her attention. "Ahhhhh! I could get used to this!" The sun was starting to set and it highlighted Spitfire as she soared on her back with her front hooves crossed over her chest. Eventually she had to land. It was time to find a place for the night. The industrial feel of BeakBreak was exciting to be a part of. The city was a hub of trade activity, even in the evening hours. She stopped by a roadside vendor Downtown a bought an alfalfa wrap before her eyes caught a nice looking inn. She gulped down the food as she made her way towards the entrance to the inn. "Griffon's Claw Inn" A swinging sign above the front door read. She pressed open the door and walked inside. She pushed her flight goggled up between her ears and looked around. Lots of ponies and other creatures were seated at table, sipping drinks and sampling simple fare. She noted there was a large amount of griffons in the place. The pegasus walked up to the counter and ordered an a cider. She wanted to order an appltini but this didn't seem like the sort of place that would serve a fancy drink. Soon Spitfire was seated at the counter next to another inn occupant. She turned and nodded to them in an amiable fashion. "How's it goin'?"
