Philip Reed is aware of this!

The other day I was checking the search engine to see if "Steve Jackson Games Frag Mods" would bring up My Little Pwny: FRAGing is Magic. It did, but I also noticed a thread for "Frag Mods" on the SJ Games forum. So I decided to go ahead and post in there and let them know about this mod. I am assuming that thanks to that post, I got an anonymous tip earlier today that Philip Reed is in fact aware of the mod and mentioned it on his blog.

He called it, and I quote, "disgustingly cute."

Unfortunately, he didn't have the URL for the blog, so I didn't get a proper plug. But, just having the designer of Frag be aware of this game mod...

Read the whole thing here:
Battlegrip: Frag Meets My Little Ponies

UPDATE 2/28:
Last night I tweeted to Philip the blog url and he just tweeted it today.

All I can say is, thanks Philip! You're awesome.

Ushicon (2/3 - 2/5) and other updates!

Oh, hey, Ushicon has pretty much come and gone, hasn't it? It was a lot of fun, but not much to report. Played several rounds of FRAGing is Magic, but I spent a lot of time just teaching people how to play. While feedback was good, it wasn't exactly the best place to get real constructive criticism.

The best thing to happen there was one of the event coordinators used to work for Steve Jackson Games and personally knows Philip Reed, the game designer for Frag! He didn't get a chance to play himself, but he took some pictures and e-mailed them to Philip. Unfortunately, I never heard back from him if Philip has ever responded...

Anyways, it was a fun weekend! Joseph and I have kicked some ideas around this month and here are some changes we've made:

Oh yeah, I got one. My little sister had one, so I bought it off of her (promised to buy her the mane 6 ponies from the blind bags). 

I'll be making rules for her soon. I intend to make her into a sort of BOSS battle that all the ponies would have to team up to defeat. It's going to be AWESOME

After-Action Report 02/03

I figured that I should do this eventually...
Dear Princess Celestia,

Today I learned that Rarity and the Needler can score obscene amounts frags together, and anything that increases her accuracy, let alone doubles it, turns her into a beast capable of unspeakable destruction. Also, attempting to flee Rarity's wrath is nigh impossible; better to sacrifice yourself to out-roll her defense than attempt to outrun her accuracy. Finally, I learned that Applejack's best bet is not hunting down weapon spawns trying to get a chainsaw, but hunting down item spawns to stock up on medpacks and Speed Boosts...especially Speed Boosts. I feel that this knowledge will lead to a more evenly balanced kill spread among the other ponies; hopefully everypony uses it well.

Your Faithful Slaughterer,
Twilight Sparkle
...Yeah, it's cheesy, I know. But it had to be done! :P Anyway, on to the details:
