    Friendship is Card Games: Twilight Sparkle and the Crystal Heart Spell

    So, to overwhelmingly greater demand than I expected (i.e. any,) I am delving into the official Friendship is Magic novels. There are a staggeringly high number of them, along with journals, mysteries, handbooks (hoofbooks?) and more. I have a newfound respect for G. M. Berrow in terms of her sheer output. In any case, let’s see what the very first one has to offer.

    Friendship is Card Games: d20 Pony, Ch. 1

    This one’s a bit unusual. It comes as a request from SirNotAppearingInThisFic (and yes, I do plan on doing the official chapter books, including one next week.) I didn’t really know what I was getting into when he suggested, but having taken a look, this does work.

    Friendship is Card Games: Rainbow Dash Presents: Bubbles

    The Mentally Advanced Series can be thought of as the Pepsi to Friendship is Witchcraft’s Coke; same concept, different execution, each with their supporters. I personally prefer FiW; MAS gets unpalatably cruel over time, especially once it’s no longer shackled to FiM’s visuals. But there is one offshoot, the Schweppes ginger ale of this analogy, where my tastes shift.

    Ida came and went through my neck of the woods, and on a semi-related note, we have some people who could use some help: shallow15 just needs a little aid at the start of the month, but Sprocket Doggingsworth is dealing with some severe flooding. Give what you can,

Advisory: I don't know if this contains spoilers for Season 6. Personally, I really hope it does.

The new action toys are certainly interesting.

I sure hope that Spike gets the chance to be a major hero fighting with Shining Armor against a serious threat. Also, I would not at all mind seeing Spike able to get larger, by whatever means. They've kept him tiny too long.

Slowly approaching Eldrazi power levels :)


The existence of this toyline continues to crack me up. Twilight will friendship the ever loving crap out of you with her mechanical friendship claws.

My favorite of the set is definitely Nightmare Moon, though.

Nice flavor text on the card, by the way. :rainbowlaugh:

3749887 I'd like to politely rebut that the show is designed first and foremost as a vehicle for making the toys more appealing. Quite a few people out there would snap these up in an instant if they knew about them, but either by choice or necessity don't have access to this news. In which case, having these concepts appear in the show would maximize the profits of this toy line.

For example, I'm currently on the fence about these figures. But if I saw even a three-second preview of Emperor-General Shining Armor riding Spike the Behemoth being in the show, I would not be able to Futurama reference fast enough.

This could have everything to do with Season 6. It could also have nothing to do with Season 6.

3750043 Hmmm, you make valid points.

But I'm still going by what I read in the original article on EqD.

Oh, a part of me wants to tease about Shining Armor's and Spike's combined dorikiness...the rest just wants to admire how awesome that looks!!! Also, I just want that Celestia and Nightmare moon.

I am glad that it seems Hasbro gets it through their freaking skull tahat girls like to play characters kicking ass too!


Oh, a part of me wants to tease about Shining Armor's and Spike's combined dorikiness.

You realize they are both comic book nerds in a scenario to actually use those campy quotes knowing that the other guy gets it.

Shining and Spike, Equestria's Meme Team!

Why do I feel a bout of possibly large-scale idiocy coming?

3750972 That's probably just me.

3750418 something in the memetics of Twilight's family predisposes them to an unusual combination of dorkiness and badassery. It can't be genetic, since Spike isn't a blood relative, but he inherited it from Twilight anyway.

I'm vaguely annoyed that a RW creature has Trample. And that effect, for that matter (although it is basically only as bad as conditional hexproofing.)

This is meant as a "column A/column B" gold card, and red's been getting a lot more trample lately. However, I do agree that it should probably be "Whenever Shining, Emperor-General attacks, attacking creatures gain indestructible until end of turn." One of the problems with making pictures is that they're rather harder to edit than text.
