UPDATE! You can now get the latest version here: MLP45E! Dungeons and Dragons With Ponies!

This is the initial beta release for MLP:45E, my rulebook for roleplaying in D&D 5th edition. It is designed to be used in conjunction with the 5th edition "D&D Next" playtest rules. Download the PDF using the link on the right for additional information, including extensive Q&A.

Note: DA's built-in PDF viewer doesn't play well with landscape format, so please download a full copy for viewing.

UPDATE: Basic D&D rules are now available for free! Get them at www.wizards.com/dnd/

This is exactly what I needed. I was afraid I'd have to do all this myself but SUPRISE, SUPRISE! Someone did my job for me. Dude, you're a lifesaver. My friends have been waiting on me to run our campaign on MLP D&D, but I needed a framework to work with all there non-huminoid races and Equestrian classes. Now all I have to do is come up with a story and we're good to go. Thank you, cheesedoodle96. I swear upon my name as a Brony that I will put your work to good use. Have an excellent day, good sir!

Where can I download this so I can use it for my phone?

I'm not sure where the link is on the DeviantArt app, but if you view the page in a web browser, to the right of the PDF there is a big button to download the whole thing.

Ingenious. This is ingenious.

Appreciated! If you get a chance to play it, let me know what sort of character you created, what options you chose, and what you liked and didn't like.

This is absolute brilliant.  I can already see getting a group together for this.  Thanks for all the hard work.
cheezedoodle96's avatar
Thanks man. Look for a major update in about a month or so. The Player's Handbook is releasing in the next week and there will be a ton of updates.

I've already got a copy of 5th ed.  I like what I see.

Can you do a AD&D 1st Ed. version?
cheezedoodle96's avatar
Unfortunately that would be an enormous amount of work. Waaaah!  I think as a fan of 1st edition though, you might find there's a lot to like in 5th edition. You can check out the basic rules for free here: wizards.com/dnd/Article.aspx?x…

Maybe if someone found a conversion guide...

Relevant to this: the official D&D (Fifth Edition) Basic Rules free PDF is now available for download.

Yep, thank you. Hadn't gotten around to posting that yet. I think I am going to wait for the Player's Handbook to do an update to MLP:45E however. That's about six weeks out.

Went the first episodes of mlp fim I was in a RPG chat room for mlp I don't know if it still exist. But I made two characters a earth pony name braveheart and a rhino named blunt, I got the idea making a rhino character after seeing zecora for the first time. So I say how about a rhino, they close species of equine. The rhinos I like Spartans.

This look so much fun. I want to try it, but know nothing about D&D... I wish I have someone to teach me.
