Re: Everglow game (looking for players)

Well aware, Sol, and ready to call out unpleasant interactions. Also, those players aren't all bad. For example, I'm willing to offer help to anyone who asks, whether player or GM.

Re: Everglow game (looking for players)

These are quite the...uhh...peculiar rules. I could make some really terrifying characters with this. Intentional. Note that these houserules also apply to your opponents. To all preparing to submit a character, even five words on aspirations, motivations or potential adventure hooks would be most ...

Horseventure 2014

Hello, fine people of Ponyfinder forum! With a friend, I'm looking to start up some pony adventure roleplaying set in Everglow! If you're interested in playing, we'd love to have a chat with you and hammer out details. IRC preferred. The rest of this post is devoted to game rules. Character generati...

Re: d20 Pony blogging

Hmm, I'd look into this system, were I not trying to run a game for someone already. Good job on the Celestia.

Re: Friendship isn't Vancian

Even just scratching some basic numbers down on paper, I found that my 1st-level unicorn aegis had 7 power points, three of which were from her class, which was... quite the wasted potential, so I'll note that this race works best with enough levels in a psionic class to be able to spend power point...

Re: Dive Bomb broken?

Fair enough! I'm still suggesting at least Power Attack is granted, if Dive Bomb doesn't get a change of concept, or get cut entirely. (Improved uncanny dodge is still more delicious than either, and Power Attack can be taken normally as a feat.)

Re: Friendship isn't Vancian

And that Starswirl's unfinished spell recited in voice did cause an effect. Not "Psionically" controled Again, Twilight is a spell-to-power erudite. This means she learns spells as powers, and still manifests them with spell components. But I guess this works a bit more complex. Spells ju...

Re: Friendship isn't Vancian

Well, David, regarding the optional power point, I tried to borrow the wording from the Psionic Aptitude trait that most of the psionic races have, so... there's that.

Psionics is a fun subsystem. You should take a look at it.


ReiMar, where's that from? I must have missed it.

Friendship isn't Vancian

If you've seen That Show, you may have noticed that most of the spells unicorns cast do not, in fact, have spell components. Instead, the unicorn wills a thing to happen, and it is so, and the only tell that a unicorn is using their power is a glowing horn (and perhaps this is just a visual cue to s...

Re: Dive Bomb broken?

A friend in IRC also offered the criticism that "It doesn't even seem like a flying ability... Typically with a dive bomb it's not always to damage the target but grab or harass them."
