    Tonight's Stories

    Tattoos Return!

    Been awhile since we had a tattoo on here, let alone one with a story:

    thought I'd tell you the story of the tattoo, it is because of it that i got into my little pony in the first place. :)

    i design alot of my own tattoo's and for friends or take inspiration from other works then use it namely anime type of stuff.
    it started one night, mates were around having a few drinks when i poped up and said i was stuck on idea's for the next tattoo.
    then one of them piped up loling, that i should get a mlp one and if i did he'd give me £20.
    Naturally i told him to politly go somewhere, but the booz followed, then the others started saying they could get a pool together and up it to a respectable £150.
    now times been the times £150 isn't something to turn your nose up at.. so i agreed, but i had to be able to design it myself so going with my genral theme of darkness (much goth like work and dark) i came up with a somewhat adult type stetch of a pony keeping it small but alot of armor and such spikes gore you get the picture very gothicand, not girly in any way shape or form!

    i then showed it to one of my friends and asked him what he thought.. he took one look at it and said again loling hard that for a £150 it had to be pink ;).
    the git...

    and it was around this time 4chan had started lossing it's pony fans (first season had just finished i belive) but I'd been around a bit and seen the jolly of the pony boys a few months ago. so i thought well power puff girls wasn't all that bad and been a anime fan since i was 12yrs animated tales can and do often tell better stories and the like. but my hopes weren't high.

    so i took the plunge dived right in i needed a design idea and just remembering some of the RD thumb nails (mods sleeping post ponies) i saw a stlye that wasn't to bad at least not 80s bad (i didn't know about g3 at this point in time, shudder) and i watch the first 2, well at this point i think all bronies know what happens after this lol you just can't stop after just 2.

    Tonight's Successful Meetups

    PonyCon Australia

    On 1-2 Feb 2014 in Melbourne Australia, PonyCon AU 2014 was held and it was a week of awesome panels with special guests, music, workshops and just generally a fun two day social event. The venue was absolutely packed, particularly the must-visit vendor halls and artist den.

    During the lunch break of the last day, a very impromptu group photo bomb was held (sorry for those who missed out!). This was done on the main stage, and we got a lot of Bronies in this frame.

    A couple of photo galleries:



    Tonight's Groups Looking For More

    New PR Pony Joins Legends of Equestria Team

    Hello everypony did you enjoy the open server weekend? We sure hope so, it was great seeing everypony running around and making friends. During the open weekend we saw dance parties, ponies working together to finish quests and hanging out with friends.

    We are happy to say that the open server was a great success and we are still hard at work improving the game, with that said we have a new member joining our team, Michael Mosley AKA Crimson Feather!

    If that name looks familiar it's because he has been popping up in the pony fandom since late last year, from appearing on The Daily Oat's website to making appearances with the BlueScreen Bronies, now he's lending a helping hoof on Legends of Equestria!

    Also if you haven't heard SavanaPope and Blue Ink represented us on Media Index, they braved the questions sent towards them and dished out some info on the open server event and the game's development.

    You can find the interview here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e7Gmqzb0SWY&feature=youtu.be&a

    We can't wait to share more about our game and our team!
