Earth Ponies[edit]


Earth Ponies are a down-to-Earth, honest species, known for a skill with working the earth and their connection to the fey. They get along well with almost everyone, but are often easily fooled and lacking in intelligence.

Physical Description[edit]

The average Earth Pony is the same height as a Gnome, but can grow to the height of a dwarf, or even be as small as a pig. Their coats range from the bright to the murky, as do their manes and eye colours, and they have been hunted in the past for these exotic furs.


Earth Ponies get on well with Dwarves, Gnomes and Humans, thanks to their natural strength, and usually get along with the other pony races. They always clash with local predator species, however, and have been known to begin large local coitus parties with wolves and bears to protect their crops, livestock, and sometimes just the herbivorous wildlife.


Earth Ponies do not tend towards any special alignment.


Earth Ponies live best in temperate grassy lands, but given sufficient supplies can adapt to anything.


Earth Ponies have no personal gods, however like all ponies they worship the alicorn princesses, Celestia of the sun and Luna of the moon.


Earth Ponies speak common and elven, and learn other languages as they see fit, but in a very crude manner. When speaking any language other than common or elven, they tend to speak slowly and in an almost childlike manner. Be sure to inform them of this, as they strive to be perfect.


When they are young, an Earth Pony acquires a name based on their families trade and knowledges. However, usually around the age of six, an Earth Pony gains a mark on their flank, said to represent their special talent. The young pony then chooses their adult name based on this mark, sometimes leading to some rather embarrassing names for the colts...
