My Little Pony: Tails of Equestria – RPG Session 3 Notes

Location: Canterlot to Ponyville to the Everfree Forest

Occassion: Fluttershy invited the ponies to look after the Mane Six’s pets (Intro scenario from the Main/Mane Rule Book)

Situation(s): This session saw Harmony Dream and Strong Star trying to rescue each of the Mane Six’s pets after the mischievous little creatures escaped their care. Harmony and Star were looking after the pets while the Mane Six went on an adventure to the Badlands. Key things to note are that they managed to rescue all of the pets, with the rescue of Opalescence being the most harrowing. The spiteful Magic Well nearly claimed Strong Star as he climbed down to retrieve the cat… it was all very tense! Winona was most useful and ensured the ponies didn’t get lost too many times in the forest.

On their rescue missions they were reunited with the Diamond Dogs (who we found out are named Rover, Fido and Spot) and Darren, the Mohawk. I suspect Darren’s encounter with Gummy has scarred him (if not physically, then mentally) somewhat! They also met Zecora.

Suffice to say the ponies managed to rescue all of the pets, some being more grateful (Owlowiscious, Winona, Tank) than others (Opalescence, Angel). Who knows what goes on in Gummy’s head!

Aftermath: Both ponies leveled-up and here are their Level 2 sheets –

    Hi Mate,
    I just have a quick question how long dod this adventure take? I have been looking to start a campaign of this with my kids and was reading this adventure but it seems ot would need a few sessions to fully complete it (not wanting each session to drag too much so the kids don’t get bored) is my assumption correct or does it flow quicker then it seems just by reading it?

    Cheers

      Hi James, sorry for the delay in responding to your comment (holidays!). The adventure in the book was pretty quick to play and we got through it in about an hour and a half. It easily could have taken twice that, but I accelerated the search for some of the pets to keep my kids interested. I also incorporated cameos from creatures they’d encountered during the first couple of sessions as ‘helpers’ in the searching. In my opinion it flows quite quickly, but if you wanted to speed things up you could group the lost pets, so rather than requiring a mini expedition for each they could be grouped.

      Hope that helps,

      Owen
