    BBC America Reports on My Little Pony

    Sure, it isn't a hardcore report, but it's still pretty cool to see the BBC of all things even mention My Little Pony. Apparently an article has gone up detailing a James Bond Skyfall parody featuring our favorite colorful equines. Check out the article below!

    Pony SRPG Needs Help

    Copy Paste:

    Hello everypony! I'm part of a devolpment team working on an up and coming SRPG. We're looking to make a full-fleged game that the whole fandom can enjoy, but there's the problem: there's a lot of work to be done and only a few of us do it. Here's where you guys come in. A game like this needs a lot in terms of art and we are really in need of artists, especially spriters. We could use a few musicians and programmers if possible. If you feel like you could help us or are interested please contact me at [email protected] Thank you all for your support.

    Successful Meetups

    Michigan Meetup

    Nice to see a Michigan meetup! Being in the middle of the State I feel so alone when it comes to meeting other pony fans.

    Copy Paste:

    My name is Jake Rayner, Admin of a facebook page for the Michigan Bronies and Pegasisters. We are a relatively small group that treat each other with a kindness the likes of families, and we hope to grow in size and spread our love and tolerance to those around us!

    We recently had our first get together, and though only a few members could come, we still had an amazing time getting to know each other.

    We are always looking for more members to add in both the Michigan United States area, as well as any other bronies that want to join from anywhere else.

    We hope that come our next meetup, we'll have a big bonanza that could make even Pinkie Pie proud!


    Groups/Meetups/Guilds Looking for More

    Friendship is Gaming Black Ops Tourney

    Copy Paste: 

    Most Brony gamers have found a home at FiG, but what's a home without a housewarming party?

    The Friendship is Gaming clan is hosting a Black Ops tournament, Tuesday, August 7th. More than likely going to be held overnight, but if you're awake for the roundups, then you'll be fine anyways (it's going to be a long night for me then...). We're hoping for an admittedly ambitious 16 Teams, 4 members per team, but we're welcoming to anyone; brony, non-brony, your cousin, neighbor, anyone really.

    This is a completely free tournament, which although means no prizes, also means there's no restrictions on entering!

    For more rules and specifics, http://fimclanwebsite.weebly.com/black-ops-tournament--tuesday-august-7th.html
    And for the general Clan Page: http://fimclanwebsite.weebly.com/
     Hope to see everyone there!
