This is a simple fantasy game with one important difference - all the player-characters are ponies!

Character generation is simple with three attributes (brains, brawn and bravado), the choice of being a regular pony or a unicorn or a pegasus. and the standard fantasy classes being available. Basic equipment is available, although it's glossed over how a pony is actually able to use most of the stuff. Take armour for example - you can have armour and/or a shield... armour for horses is known, of course, but how on earth does one use a shield?

Combat and other task resolution is simple and straightforward, with d10 rolls modified by difficulty level for task resolution, roll under the appropriate attribute to succeed and d10+brawn opposed rolls for combat. Magic-using ponies have a selection of spells to cast, each of which has a designated effect. And that's it!

A solo adventure and a regular one for a party are included, and there is also a character sheet in the download.

As a simple game to introduce youngsters to role-playing it works well mechanically, and ponies will appeal to many... yet there is nothing bar calling your character a pony to reflect their equine nature.
