Pony Piefights Version 0.03e

This version is obsolete. the most current rules document can be found at

Rules for simulating conflict between technicolor marshmallow ponies. The initial project was inspired by the episode Over a Barrel.

As the old adage goes, "Make the game you want to play."
Essentially, the rules presented here are as much a reflection of my own gaming preferences as they are an attempt to model social and physical conflict between diminutive technicolor ponies.

This release incorporates significant changes to the combat system. The way die values are treated and target numbers are calculated has changed. Base defense values have gone down and damage numbers have gone up as a result of the changes. There are also now rules for magic.
Additionally, there have been several other corrections and changes to existing wording to close loopholes and give correct references.

This is still very much an ongoing project, so you may want to check back periodically for updates.
If you'd like to; feel free to leave any questions, comments, or battle reports.
