Hey there! So I imagine you’ve visited this page knowing a little bit about My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. You’re probably wondering exactly what Tails of Equestria is.
This book is a manual for a storytelling game, which allows you and your friends to create your very own pony characters to explore the amazing and magical world of Equestria—will you be a dynamic adventurer like Daring Do or a bold treasure hunter like Rarity?
Wait, wait, wait! You said this is a game, but this is clearly a book!
You’re right, but it’s actually both a book and a game. This book contains rules and a story. Rules that will tell you how to make a strong, clever, or charming pony. A story that you and your friends will enjoy, where the choices you make will change the story itself until you are telling the story as much as the book or the GM.
GM… what is that?
A GM (game master) is a player at the table, but instead of playing as a pony, he or she will play as a storyteller, impersonating all of the ponies you meet, the beasts you face, and the challenges you have to overcome. Think of the GM as a narrator in a movie—it is his or her role to tell the players exactly what is happening in the story and what the outcomes of their actions are, depending on their choices.
Cool! How do I win?
Winning a storytelling game is very easy; you just need to have fun! Tales of Equestria is not about getting to the end of a board or having the most points, but all about having fantastical adventures and using the magic of Friendship to overcome any obstacles that stand in your way. You and your friends, including the GM, are all on the same team—as long as every pony is having fun, everybody wins!
My Little Pony: Tails of Equestria is a storytelling pen and paper game for 2 to 6 players. Players create and role-play as pony heroes who explore and seek adventure in the various lands of Equestria. Guided by a Game Master (GM), players adventure together and use the magic of friendship to overcome obstacles as they learn more about each other and the world around them.
