Cal is rather sleepy tonight so I grabbed the first pic that came too mind. I really need to watch some Gravity Falls sometime, it sounds like a wonderful show! I'll pick a header you guys want tomorrow, I promise.
On to the news which is really full of podcasts, meetups, and that sort of stuff tonight.
Apparently these things are a success. Another set of gamer pictures has been released on xbox live, this time dedicated to the elements of harmony. Head on over here to pick them up for a buck!
Thanks to T4CT1C4L D3RPY for the heads up.
Description: Clover Cordelia is a freshmare student at the Cambridle Academy of Magic who is determined to become a great sorceress.The Education of Clover the Clever (New Part 16!)
Star Swirl the Bearded is a legendary wizard who is in need of an apprentice.
Clover will soon discover that having great magical power might not actually make you easier to be around, and tends to attract unusual difficulties...
It's nothing Star Swirl can't take care of, provided he and Clover manage to resist killing each other first.

Based on oldschool posts, it looks like around this time the fandom thought custom ponies were a huge deal. In fact, we single posted a custom Rainbow Dash that really didn't do anything crazy other than style her hair. It's kind of funny to think of what the fandom would be capable of in a few years from now.
Over A Barrel was yet another controversial one, focusing on the whole cowboy and indian thing. Poor Dave Polsky just kept getting hit with stuff like this! At least Meghan promised him some normal episodes in season 4.
Outside of the that, we got yet another look at races that aren't ponies in Equestria. Quite a few have popped up over the years. I remember a message from Lauren Faust saying that hooves races would be the focus of sapience, outside of griffons.
Anyway, get some over the barrel below the break, and toss those initial comments below!
Autumn has rolled in, and with it some autumnal episode analyses! In our first video (which is very quiet, so you may need to crank your speakers), Rookiewompus overthinks Fall Weather Friends as the start of her month-long autumn-episode expose. Following her is my own video on the legendary Luna Eclipsed. Check them both out after the break!
And by the way, I haven't received any actual submissions of analysis videos in quite some time. If you have a video that you'd like to see posted, email it to me at [email protected]! Don't be shy!
In a recent panel at Dragon Con (Found below the break), the audience asked John de Lancie himself about his roles in the upcoming season 4.Some of the major points here:
- 4-5 episodes so far (meaning we have 1-2 Discord episodes on season 4)
- A Discord song is on it's way
If you want to check it out for yourself, you can find it below the break at the 34 minutes onward mark.
Thanks to Fluttershy_Z for the heads up!
A bunch of new shirts have been added over at We Love Fine, along with some sweaters, pants, and a Luna dress. I see we got some cereal parodies finally, but where are the Trixies? Anyway, get all these over here.
Quite a few people are emailing about this, so I figured I'd toss a post up. The EQD app is currently undergoing some maintenance based on a recent update Google rolled out for the Blogger API. Some of you may be running into crashes and general breaks while we set up a workaround. Hopefully everything will be back to normal soon!
Until then, the mobile version of EQD has been upgraded with the new look, so that should hold you all over.
(Update: As of 10./9 the app should now be working once again. The only thing bugged is the search feature which is still being worked on)
As was announced a while back, the 12th comic in the series will include an extremely limited variant to celebrate 1 million sales of the series thus far. Twelve will be available, given out at various events. I have a feeling this thing is going to be worth a fortune. The comic Shining Armor is holding appears to be a reference to an old message Andy Price dropped on his Deviant Art page a while back, asking for a Chrysalis, Luna, and Applejack specific arc as Masem points out.
Thanks to everyone for sending it!
