There’s a big mash-up of companies working together in order to bring you a new, family-friendly RPG next year. River Horse (makers of Terminator Genisys, among others) has made a deal with Shinobi 7 (co-owned by Ninja Division and Seven Seas Publishing) to release the Tails of Equestria RPG (based on Hasbro’s My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic) to North American audiences in March of next year. *whew* I did say there was a lot going on there.
The first three products slated to come out are the main core rulebook (152 page hardcover), The Curse of the Statuettes adventure story box set (48-page adventure book, game screen, dice set, and character sheets), and Tokens of Friendship (12 gems and a collector’s bag). The game is designed to be fairly light in terms of mechanics, and more like a group-storytelling game, rather than your crunch-heavy systems. As such, it’s aimed at younger gamers, but the designers say there’s enough there to hold a veteran gamer’s attention. If you’re looking for something to play with the kids, this is that sort of product.
Currently, there’s no word on miniatures coming for the game.
