Tales of Equestria, The Official Movie Sourcebook Available from Riverhorse

Dec 17, 2017

Friendship comes in many colours.

Take your adventure far beyond Equestria’s borders with this: the first sourcebook for Tails of Equestria. Based on MY LITTLE PONY: THE MOVIE, this book contains everything you need to bring new and exciting characters, locations, and stories to your Tails of Equestria game. With new player options and tons of Gamemaster info, The Official Movie Sourcebook is a fantastic way to expand the boundaries of your Tails of Equestria game.

NEW LOCATIONS
You’ve left the comforts of Equestria behind—ahead of you lies a mysterious realm of unknown adventure, hidden lore, and magical wonders! The Official Movie Sourcebook contains expanded details on the locations featured in MY LITTLE PONY: THE MOVIE, in particular the bustling streets of Klugetown, the ancient citadel on Mount Aris, and the underwater realm of Seaquestria! As well as detailed descriptions, this book also contains advice for Gamemasters on how to incorporate these locations into a game in urban and underwater adventures.

NEW NON-PONY CHARACTERS
A parrot swings from a chandelier, flips in the air and lands with panache. A Lizardfolk explorer guides his friends through Klugetown. A Hippogriff soars through uncharted sky to deliver a vital message, and a Cat carefully disables an underwater ruin’s trapdoor. The Official Movie Sourcebook contains four new playable non-pony races:

Nimble, roguish Cats.
Swashbuckling Parrots, with striking plumage.
Brave and honourable Hippogriffs.
Shrewd and intelligent Lizardfolk.

EXPANDED RULES
If you’re looking to bring more depth to your Tails of Equestria game, these rules are for you! Both within and beyond Equestria, adventurers often meet factions and organizations of many kinds. The faction and reputation rules presented within give a bit more context to these relationships and help keep track of who the players know, whether that reputation is good or…not so good.

Optional vehicle rules detail how players can obtain, customize, and use their own personal vehicles. Beyond Equestria, long distance travel becomes a lot more difficult, so having your own airship is a real advantage!

A NEW ADVENTURE!
‘The Beasts of Black Skull Island’ is the perfect way to kickstart your groups adventures outside Equestria. Join the crew of adventurous pirate Captain Rosella and hunt for the legendary treasure of Black Skull Island! But beware, somepony else might have gotten there first…

NEW CHARACTERS & CREATURES
The Official Movie Sourcebook contains loads of new stats for NPC characters from MY LITTLE PONY: THE MOVIE. You’ll find everything from friendly faces like Capper and Princess Skystar, to the villainous Storm King, Tempest Shadow, and their minions.

All of the new content and rules included in The Official Movie Sourcebook are, of course, 100% compatible with all other products in the Tails of Equestria range. So saddle up, take to the skies, and seek out adventure in the wide world ahead!

My Little Pony: Tails of Equestria RPG set to release

December 13th, 2016

A deal has been struck for broad release of My Little Pony:  Tails of Equestria, the roleplaying game based on the Hasbro franchise, in the U.S. and Canada.

Shinobi 7, the game studio co-owned by Ninja Division and Seven Seas Publishing (see “Seven Seas and Ninja Division Form New Game Company”), acquired the rights from European game development studio River Horse Games and Ninja Division will distribute.

“Shinobi 7 primarily goes out and looks for licenses and makes games; Ninja Division publishes their games,” Ninja Division Partner and Sales and Marketing Director Deke Stella explained.  “Ninja Division has always been really good friends with Alessio from River Horse. The opportunity for My Little Pony came out. Shinobi 7 made an arrangement with River Horse, because River Horse is European-based, for Shinobi 7 to be able to release the game in North America.  Ninja Division does all the publishing and distribution for anything that Shinobi 7 does, so here we are with My Little Pony on its way.”

River Horse, formed in 2010 to market the games of Alessio Cavatore but expanding to take on additional game design roles, has experience in developing games based on licensed properties, including Terminator Genisys (see “’Terminator Genisys:  The Miniatures Game’”) and Labyrinth (see “Jim Henson’s ‘Labyrinth’ Comes to Tabletop”).  Art for the My Little Pony RPG comes from screen pulls from the My Little Pony:  Friendship Is Magic TV show and art from Hasbro’s My Little Pony artists.

Three initial SKUs are planned for March 2017 release:

My Little Pony:  Tales of Equestria Core Rulebook, a 152-page full color hardcover.

The Curse of the Statuettes Adventure Story Box Set, a boxed expansion including a 48-page full color adventure book, a gamemaster screen, a 6 polyhedron dice set, and 40 customizable character sheets.

Tokens of Friendship, 12 gemstones with a collector’s bag.

After these initial releases, new My Little Pony:  Tails of Equestria products will be released on a quarterly basis.
