For Pony… err. PonyFinder

Try­ing to get back into a cre­ative state of mind after step­ping away from it for a long while can be dif­fi­cult. I’ve been want­i­ng to get back into pen and paper or table-top role­play­ing games again for a while now, more specif­i­cal­ly as a game mas­ter, but when tasked with get­ting every­thing togeth­er for such a game I’ve been get­ting dis­cour­aged and dis­tract­ed and as a result less than sat­is­fied with the things I’ve come up with. So tak­ing small steps and been look­ing at some exist­ing cam­paigns and adven­ture paths and I’m doing PonyFind­er cam­paign for a small group of players.

PonyFind­er, devel­oped by Sil­ver Games LLC, is a cam­paign set­ting for Pathfind­er and D&D that emu­lates the world of My Lit­tle Pony, Friend­ship is Mag­ic. Play­ers are free to take on their own orig­i­nal char­ac­ters from among the tra­di­tion­al races of the sys­tems and those from the genre includ­ing, ponies, pega­sus, uni­corns, gryphons, hip­pogriffs, drag­ons, sun­cats, kirin, dop­pel­gangers (changlings), and many many more.

So far I’ve run two ses­sions of this game every oth­er Sun­day and the group seems to be doing well togeth­er. I’m glad I’ve been able to get this game start­ed and it has very much helped inspire thoughts for oth­er things. In the com­ing ses­sions a new play­er will be intro­duced and hope­ful­ly I can return to work­ing on larg­er orig­i­nal sto­ries again.
