• Tumblr Spotlight: The Coffee Embassy / Ask Palette / Go! Scootaloo! / Hayven 11 / Ask Coco Pommel

    Hello again my friends! Sorry for the slight delay in the spotlight, we've been unusually busy on the site lately. We've got a cool mix of the unique today, ranging from Saddle Arabia to MMO ponies so saddle up and check out what we have after the break!

    Also of note, my Tumblr queue is FINALLY getting to really manageable levels and it's getting harder to come up with Tumblrs to post. So, please send in any recommendations!

    As always, if you have a tumblr you would like to share, whether it is your own or someone elses, please make sure to send it my way at [email protected] or my Twitter for review and filing. Mature themed ones (PG-13) are welcome as well!

    Update: If you have been featured before and were in hiatus and are coming back you can inform me at [email protected]! I am starting a section at the end of spotlights that will point out tumblrs coming out of hiatus so people can check them out.

    Now on to the tumblrs!

    First up today is a tumblr of an interesting sort! Not much has been done with the ponies from Saddle Arabia, but it always struck me as an interesting locale to explore. As such, welcome to The Coffee Embassy where Delegate Amira works with Equestria over the coffee trade between the two countries. For you coffee fans out there and those who want to take a peek at some Saddle Arabia lore this would be a great tumblr for you!

    What I love about the tumblr community is that while tumblrs do come and go there always seems to be something new to look forward to. Ask Palette is a new kid on the block in the tumblr pony universe, but the artist behind her has shown great promise so far! A pegasus of the silent type, Palette's personality is still being developed though it does appear that she loves to paint. With a cute style, frequent updates, and even animation this one looks like it'll provide fun for a long time to come!

    Go! Scootaloo!

    In the tumblr universe Scootaloo always seems to be the most adventurous of the CMC and is the topic of a few adventure blogs out there! Following in the footsteps of such blogs as Moon Stuck, the adventure style tumblrs have become popular and show no sign of easing up! Go! Scootaloo! brings a new approach to the adventure style tumblr by not being afraid to give the people asking questions 'Bad Ends' with the Bad End count at 2 or 3 so far. Can you help guide Scootaloo to safety? Send your inputs below!

    Hayven 11

    One of the great things about the pony tumblr community is the collaborative projects artists can work on. One such project is Hayven 11, an MMO for ponies across the tumblr universe to participate in and go on adventures basically! Don't take my word for it, read what the creator of the project has to say:

    "From the login post: Hayven 11 is an ambitious, collaborative Tumblr project framed as a Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game.
    In short, it's a framework and setting in which artists can draw their characters doing MMO things and interact with other artists in the same setting. It's similar to the Tumblrpon Prom, or the Vocational Death Cruise.
    The world of Hayven 11 is ever-expanding, with a weekly-ish news bulletin detailing updates to the site and lore. We've just recently updated the details of each major area. We are also planning major story events for every player to participate in, which will shape the future of the "game world".
    Also, it's very important for new players to check out the sidebar links before starting, to get a better feel for the setting."

    So what are you waiting for? Get started below!

    Coco has quickly risen to become one of the favorite side characters from season 4. Despite that I have not encountered a lot of tumblrs dealing with the little assistant. While in a temporary hiatus, Ask Coco Pommel hopes to fill the void of Coco tumblrs and expand a bit on the character we've grown to love. Check it out at the links below!
