This is version 0.93 of MLP45E, a rulebook supplement intended to be used with the 5th edition Dungeons & Dragons Player's Handbook. It contains rules for setting a D&D game in the land of Equestria, with elements taken from the My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic cartoon and its associated comics, art, and fan fiction.
This update to the original, MLP:45E - Roleplaying in Equestria for DND 5E, is now fully compatible with the D&D 5th Edition roleplaying game. It contains all you need (along with the D&D Player's Handbook) to create characters to use in a D&D game set in Equestria (The DM will also probably want to have a copy of the Monster Manual and the Dungeon Master's Guide).
For printable season Zinger cards, you can get them here: Season 1 Zingers

Now that Gen 4 has ended and all, I wanted to put a little time into getting into D&D when my curiosity let me stumble upon this gem of a submission. Looks amazing, and I'm pretty interested. ^~^
Though I must ask, are you considering to revise and create an updated version with more content? Especially since this is almost 5 years old, and stuff like an actual Kirin race being canon now.
New Canon Races:
-Pure Changelings (like Thorax)
-Seaponies (now that the movie is out).
New Fandom Races:
Also it would seem that the warlocks class was either missing or forgotten in the original document. Would like some more insight on this. Especially since it would be interesting to see a Warlock whose Patron is either Luna, the Tantabus or even Discord.
The type of Changeling Thorax now is still can fit under the "Changeling Orphan".
It would be cool to see some Breezies.
Also, how much playtesting or player feedback have you gotten? I'd love to be able to help in that regard, whether I have a group or not - I'm a veteran of running campaigns by myself, sadly...
That's right, Earth Pony Mage.
I'll resist saying I told you so, but I think this should be a lesson on restricting player options when the fluff supporting such is very much speculative.
Until Meadowbrook is shown to conjure things out of thin air, teleport, levitate objects, or do other traditional wizardly things without the aid of a magical item of some kind, I'm not going to jump to conclusions.
If her magic comes from Study and Knowledge, I think you'd have to call her a wizard, even if she mostly does healing. She could easily be a Mystic Theurge. All Wizards can cast remove curse too! There's no source saying that her powers come from a connection with nature or Faith in a higher power, so calling her a cleric or druid is unfounded.
Having a player running an alicorn should be a pretty delicate situation best left to the individual GM to manage.
