Dashie so ferocious~
I'm taking the roundup tonight since Calpain is off doing another one of his cross country drives. I usually complain after just 10 minutes in the car.
Get some stuff below!
Stable-Tec has released a short intro for their upcoming Fallout Equestria series. It does a good job of setting the mood for something that will hopefully be pretty awesome for all you wasteland fans out there. Check it out below the break!
A few new conventions are popping up, and past conventions tossing updates out. Have some headlines:
- Canterlot University - Singapore's First My Little Pony Convention Announced
- Midwest Brony Fest General Update
- BronyScot Press Release
And full press releases below the break!
This right here has me excited. That is totally Twilight Sparkle struggling to fly, and Rainbow Dash providing support. If you follow EQD at all, you know this is my dream come true for season 4.
Thanks to everyone that sent it!
With a year of ridiculously successful comics behind him, Andy Price has given the denizens of his Deviant Art page his thoughts on Alicorn Twilight and the fandom drama surrounding it. It's a pretty good read if you have ever sent an angry email off to one of the official creators of pony, or signed one of those "remove Twilight's wings!1!!'11oneone" petitions that were floating around a while back. Check it out over here!
Thanks to everyone that sent it in!
[Adventure][Crossover][Dark] Finally a Baldurs Gate crossover!
Description: When a dark enemy begins hunting the young wizard Twilight Sparkle, the walls of the fortress library of Candlekeep cannot protect her. Not even her mentor, the archmage Star Swirl the Bearded, can keep her safe. With a price on her head and the shadow of death on her heels, her only hope for salvation is the Magic of Friendship. Perhaps, with powerful allies at her side, she can find answers and uncover the truth about her destiny.The Sword Coast
(This story is inspired by the Baldur's Gate CRPG series by Bioware, but you do not have to be familiar with BG to understand its events)

The Sword Coast - Shadows of the Crystal Empire (New Part 15!)

We just came down from an epic start to season two, with Discord, Lesson Zero, and glorious CANTERLOCK Luna. The fan art from Luna Eclipse was causing Drawfriend posts to overload, with costumed ponies and moonbutt being pumped out at unprecedented rates. Things were good!
Off in the distance via a week early episode synopsis was something people were a bit wary on. Would the CMC in season 2 finally escape the black hole of cutiemarkscutiemarkscutiemarks that drove many of us bonkers? We were about to find out!
When Sisterhooves Social finally dropped on November 5th, a lot of people were pleasantly surprised. The banter between Rarity and Sweetie Belle was excellent, with both ponies gaining a whole boatload of new canon to play with. If future crusader episodes were going to follow this trend, things were looking up for the trio.
On top of that, wet manes were suddenly a thing, and Friendship is Witchcraft skyrocketed in popularity with Sweetie Bot at the forefront. I'm still leaning toward that one for best parody yet.
Anyway, get some Sisterhooves Social below the break!
Alicorn all the ponies? A deadly premonition of the future? Only time will tell! That Fluttershy toy from China totally has a horn though. She's also pretty huge, clocking in at 22 centimeters tall. I wouldn't be surprised if this was a new unrelated toyline, though it could just be a prototype.
Thanks to TornadoTwist for the heads up.
Bobby Curnow of the IDW forums has revealed a few more neat little tidbits of information in regards to the Friends Forever series that is replacing the micro comic. It's sounding like small groups of characters will be the focus here, with favorites like Zecora, Trixie, and Discord hopping in to provide supporting roles.
Have the exact quote:
Friends Forever will be the same format as the Micro-series. Rotating creative team, done-in-one stories. You'll see some new Pony creators, like Alex and Carla, but also many returning people/creative teams.
Stories have been greenlit featuring all of the Mane 6, Luna, Celestia, Spike, and the Crusaders. And MORE! Expect to see important secondary characters like Zecora, Trixie, Discord and more! (because i'll get the question: no stories planned for what would be considered 'background ponies'. I remain skeptical of them holding an entire story, but hey— doesn't mean we CAN"T do it, if the right story comes)
Some stories will feature two of the mane 6, like #1, others will see one mane 6 with one supporting character, and others still will be JUST supporting characters. So there's pretty much endless potential. I'm excited, it will be a lot fun with lots of storytelling potential.
Expect the madness to begin next year!
Thanks to Millstone for the heads up.
Seth: Alex. I need you to run a batpony fanfic contest.
Me: What. Why?
Seth: Because. They are underrepresented.
We here at Equestria Daily love October. We love it so much that we're giving you not one, but two writing competitions in the same month! Crazy right? And, well, Seth told me to, and I have nothing better to do with my time. So for the first time ever, I present: The Batpony Writeoff! I hope you like wings and fangs, because that's what this one is all about.
Find more details after the break.
More variants for the masses. Comic #12 will be getting some Vinyl Scratch and Octavia love. Octavia will be available at Jetpack, while Larrys will grab Vinyl. Only Octavia is up at the time of this post, but you can keep an eye on their pony section to catch the other when it appears in it's finalized form.
Thanks to 621Chopsuey for the heads up.
I do love me some M.A. Larson. His lack of OC pony gives me all the excuses to post my favorite pony.
If you liked magic duel, go meet the writer! BABScon's Press release can be found below the break!
Meghan just loves teasing the people of Twitter about season 4 stuff. There are a few things she could be referencing with this one. I'll let you guys brainstorm that in the comments below!
Thanks to CMC_Scootaloo for pointing it out.
