My GM is going to be running this in the near future, so I will check back and see how well it turns out! I myself am running an Elder Scrolls setting for SW, so I have been delegated to rules monkey of the party.
Where's the link to your errata? I originally downloaded the book a few months ago and am getting a new one, but I would like to know the changes off hoof. Like did you include anything from season 3?
I haven't gotten around to compiling a complete list of errata between 3rd and the Revised 3rd (the version that is currently up), as it was a lot of small things. If you have any specific questions, go ahead and ask me. Season 3 had not aired when I put up the latest version of the book, so it has nothing from S3 in it.
I, however made a really awesome earth pony, whom I'm considering making my own ponysona. If you want I'll share the build with you.
Good on you for making an Earth pony though! People tend to think they aren't as 'good' as the other breeds, which is not only wrong but goes against the message of the show itself as well. I've got a bias towards Unicorns because I'm a fan of casters in any RPG, but I've got both a Unicorn character and an Earth pony character that I play myself.
Unicorns are just obviously magical, but lack any physical aptitude.
Earth Ponies are quite capable, I generally like them as character concepts. I can't fly, but I can get around that. I can't levitate, but I can get around that too. I CAN however kick this boulder across the town without breaking a sweat. Or climb up a hill with the rest of the party on my back.
Canon wise, I think Earth ponies are the only ones who can grow plants properly. I dunno about it though, I wasn't watching the show for that fact so I'm not sure if there's evidence in doing so.
But you use the word obsequious—obedient and attentive to an excessive or servile degree—when all your context says you mean inconspicuous.
It's nice to see such a diverse sort of project, and to see you so ready and willing to help people with their questions and problems. Keep up the good work!
Thanks for the kind words, I try my best to help my fans and supporters!
Also, Pegasi FTW
Heh, from the multiple games I'm playing in/running it seems like pegasi are the favorite in terms of number of people playing them. I'm personally always a fan of casters so I like unicorns the best.
Also on the podcast you said that players would need Savage Worlds Deluxe Edition and the standard role playing kit, is there anything else a player might need?
We're still working out how we're exactly going to play (IRC / Skype / OpenRPG / ???) but you're free to watch too if that's all you want to do!
Other than that, it is entirely dependent on the method by which you play as to what you'll need:
In person: Deluxe Edition (physical copy recommended), dice, deck of playing cards, tokens for bennies. Game board and pieces are fun but by no means necessary.
Online: Deluxe Edition, online dice roller (such as rolz.org) or physical dice if you want to use the honor system, deck of playing cards. Online game board program such as Maptools can be used as well.
