TGN Review: The Bestiary of Equestria

I’m an unabashed fan of the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic series. I’ve seen all the way through Season 7. I’ve got the movie on Blu-Ray. And I’ve done multiple reviews for the Tails of Equestria products in the past. So, it seems only fitting that I continue on. I recently managed to get a Bestiary of Equestria, a book I’d been eagerly anticipating getting for a while, due to what’s been said to be inside. Did it live up to my expectations?

So, grab your favorite Wonderbolt hat, it’s time for another TGN Review. This time, it’s The Bestiary of Equestria for the Tails of Equestria RPG from River Horse Games.

River Horse Previews Jaegar Conn-Pod For Pacific Rim: Extinction

We get a look at the card and some insight into how it works in this new preview from River Horse.

River Horse Previews Vasilek The Knight For The Highlander Board Game

As an Immortal, there’s two ways you can go about trying to be the last one. You can hermit yourself away in some remote place, practicing your swordplay continually, just in case anyone finds you, but hoping that they don’t. Or, you just run around beheading anyone and everyone you come across, just in case. For Vasilek, The Knight, he’s definitely opted for the latter of the two. He’ll be one of the characters you can choose in River Horse’s upcoming The Highlander board game. Have a look at this preview.

River Horse Previews Weapons In The Highlander Board Game

Whenever people think of the Highlander series, one particular weapon comes to mind, the sword.

Of course, each Immortal prefers a particular kind of sword, and so you’ve got plenty to choose from in the upcoming Highlander board game from River Horse. Check out a bit about how they’ll work below.

Tails of Equestria Movie Sourcebook Now Available From River Horse

Sad news: my MLP RP that I’ve been running here at the office is on hiatus until the new year. Things are just too busy and since we played on Mondays, and the next two major holidays are on Monday, we’ll pick back up the second week of January. However, that does mean that I’ll have time to pick up the My Little Pony – The Movie Official Sourcebook for the Tails of Equestria game (well, I’ll get a friend over in the UK to pick it up for me, since the North American release through Ninja Division isn’t quite here yet). The book is available now.

Small Statues of Ponies? Who’d’ve Thought? A Review of Curse of the Statuettes Adventure

I’m an unabashed fan of My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. I put it in the same league as something like Animaniacs and Tiny Toons, where, sure, I may not be the real target audience, but I feel it’s a quality cartoon product that has enough references to keep me interested (they dress up as the characters from Fear & Loathing in Las Vegas at one point, for example). So yes, I do also enjoy the Tails of Equestria RPG book and, as soon as I could, ordered my copy of The Curse of the Statuettes, the first full-length adventure for the game. It got here the other day, and I figured, for my 25,000th post (more on that later), I’d give it a (spoiler-free) review. So let’s get into it.

So let’s head out into the badlands and take a look at The Curse of the Statuettes.
