    Hey ponies :) The game is simple and based on the CCG which you probably shouldn't play if you have an addictive personality :p

    Anyway, create a mini episode of MLP from Mane characters, problem elements, character and character theme elements.

    • The mane characters are the protagonists.
    • There must be two problems that each mane character would prefer to solve. These problems must be made of the problem elements. The problem elements are associated with a particular mane character. The problem elements are solved by one mane character (indicated in brackets). The mane character who does not solve the problem elements overall is the junior mane character (eg Twilight in Pinkie Keen) while the mane character who solves the problem elements is the senior mane character (eg Pinkie in Pinkie Keen).
    • The character and character-theme elements both compose the character themes that form the characters and themes that the mane characters explore in the episode. The character and character theme elements are associated with a mane character.
    • Miscellaneous elements can contribute to both problem and character theme elements. You will need CCG knowledge to understand these...
    • The senior mane character provides an overall resolution to the problems. This resolution must be complimentary to the junior mane character. The resolution must involve a ‘Dear Princess Celestia’ type resolution with a message.
    • If you are confused about any of the characters, problems or themes listed then type it into google along with 'CCG pony' and you should find the card it is referring to with a nice pic from the episode the card is based on :3

    Ok then the elements for the first game:

    Fluttershy (mane character) - Nurturing Nature (mane character theme):

    Hooffields & McColts (character element) - Uneasy truce (character-theme element); Winona (character) – Best Dog (character-theme element); AJ and Flutters (character) – treading water (character-theme element). <-- these elements are all associated with Fluttershy - Nurturing nature.

    Smolder (mane character) - Culture Shock (mane character-theme element)

    Limestone Pie (character element) - Cpn Grumpy (character-theme element); Twillight sparkle (character element) – growing up (character-theme element)

    Fast game
    Fluttershy: Flutterholly was discarded; Fast Food used.
    Smolder: Big Mac – Big eater was discarded

    Fluttershy solved: Bunny Breakout; Too Many fluttershies (Discord encounters Fluttershy impersonators); This way, little ones; Sanctuary construction; Traitor (Smolder); Caught off guard (movie – seapony intro) (Smolder); Accident at the Pear farm (Smolder); Runaway cart (mare-do-well) (Smolder)

    Smolder solved none.


    The story therefore must involve Fluttershy and Smolder and include themes that reflect the character and character elements listed and reflect the fact that Flutters solved all the problems :p Smolder wasn't very helpful this ep. Still it will come to a resolution that Flutters and Smolder can appreciate.

    Smolder's burning secret

    Smolder seeks guidance on her feelings and reveals that she has a crush on Gallus to Starlight (Accident at the Pear Farm). She is initially boastful (mare do well) but eventually says she has never had these feelings about any-creature before (Twilight - Growing up).

    Starlight mentions Smolder's affection (Smolder) to Fluttershy (Fluttershy, Traitor). Fluttershy wants to help (nurturing nature). Fluttershy asks Solder about her affection for Gallus, but Smolder is uncomfortable about talking about her feelings 'like a pony' (culture shock).

    Fluttershy goes away determined (Winona - Best dog) to get Smolder to open up. She decides to invite Gallus and Smolder to a tea party (fast food) with her and a reluctant Applejack. At the party Fluttershy and Applejack struggle to make conversation (AJ + Fluttershy - treading water). Gallus makes an off-colour joke about Smolder and she reacts badly (Limestone Pie - Cpn Grumpy). Things begin to escalate (Bunny Breakout), Fluttershy tries to calm her down but Smolder says she is her least favourite teacher and she is glad not all ponies are as feeble as her. Just as Smolder seems about to storm out (Runaway Cart) she suddenly reveals her feelings to Gallus (Caught off guard). Flutters is crying and AJ and Gallus look unimpressed but Smolder tearfully apologises and they relent.

    "Dear Princess Celestia": Smolder recognises that Fluttershy is not 'feeble' but rather that Flutters' aversion to anger is based on a genuine care for all creatures, even angry ones like her. She says that genuine kindness takes on a challenge - Fluttershy had no reason other than kindness to try to help in a difficult situation like this, and admits that she is grateful. She does not simply fall for Gallus though :p

    Synopsis:

    Twilight is summonsed by the map to Yakyakistan (Under lock and tree) to organise a festival for prince Rutherford (Shining Armour - Crystal Prince; Spike - Festival assistant; Twi + Spike - Ultimate organisers; Party hat; Jet set and upper crust; Cheese sandwich - all night partier). Twilight needs to learn a Yak birthday song (Trading Traditions). The festival is for the birth of Prince Rutherford's daughter :3 (Rainbow dash - growing up). Pinkie learns of this and is scandalised that the map did not summon her (Pinkie pie - grump)! She agrees to let Twi do it her own way, but as soon as Twi leaves, Pinkie follows (Cherry Berry - Chocks away; Rarity and Pinkie Pie - Ocean Currents), determined to get Twi to accept that a Pinkie party is the only way :p

    Once Twi is with the yaks she goes about attempting to organise things. Twilight sensibly has already searched Prince Rutherford's lineage (Ancient research; Princess Twi - cover to cover; Moondancer - page turner) with the help of the crystal kingdom (Shining Armour - Crystal Prince) to look for olden yak lore/treasure she can bestow on the young royal (Daring Do - crafty collector; Half way across equestria). Pinkie knows she can't directly interfere, so she tries to organise things in the background (Storm King -conniver). She sneaks into Prince Rutherford's council and quaffs with him (Berry Punch and Orange Swirl - drinking buddies; Berry Punch - all night partier) and agrees to give him a yack massage (Bulk biceps - extra strong masseuse) including a hoof massage :p (Cheese shoes). They get drunk together. When it comes to the festival Pinkie and Rutherford are still drunk and end up tipping the cake on Twi's head and scaring off a number of her invited party guests (Mega Mare - watch your step; Sugar belle - takes the cake; Party of One; Yellow parasprite; Awkward cutecenara). In all the confusion a Polar monster steals the daughter in the midst of all this planning/arguing (Monster manual).

    Pinkie says she is sorry to Twilight (Sorry Stamp).but Twilight is angry and demands that Pinkie leave (Unreasonable demands). Pinkie leaves and on the outskirts she finds a lair of Yetis who seek to return the Wendigos to power. They trap Pinkie and try to turn her into a Frost pony (Dip in the pool; Frozen in Magicite). When the frost Pinkie returns to Yakyakistan for the festival Twi recognises the signs and calls out the imposter (Monstrous Manual) and sends her out of yakyakistan telepathically (Tricksy hat). Pinkie thaws after a massage (Bulk Biceps - Extra strong masseuse)and apologises.

    "Dear Princess Celestia": Trust different groups of friends with each other. Also: Never get between a gift horse and a yak's mouth. :p
