True but it can still be confusing since the two are of different categories. Well as far as I know anyway, I've read on this stuff since I was a kid but I haven't done much re-reading on gun stuff as of late. Sometimes I'm as sharp as the finest knife and other times I'm as sharp as a marble.

What do you mean ? As far as I can tell kkat did not mislabel the chain gun as long as it was not like the m249 and belt fed. That is were people get confused. The heavy in tf2 uses a chain gun. The mini gun in the fallout game is a chain gun. So I fail to see the problem. Larger caliber weapons would be mounted on a vehicle but ground portables are also viable I mean if you need ap and did not have power armor or a massively strong pony on hand to use the mini fun then a portable stationary set up is your only choice.

Bleh actually I think you are right. I guess it was just confusing for me since when I see chaingun I think of the single-barrel guns. I just proved my own point about my sharpness. Twilight

I don't know if this is what put it into Hinds' brain, but the background in the Temple of Doom for the Indiana Jones Indiana Jones if Indiana Jones was an Indiana Jones pony episode had weird statues that looked like diamond dogs. Some fans have drawn their own conclusions on the matter.
...Huh. No, I actually hadn't remembered that. Seems to make sense, though!

Eh... Thing thing is, I have a lot of somewhat-disconnected bits. For an actually book I'd need to have a lot more details and either focus in more closely or have a lot more details. Also, I'm not that good a writer, and definitely not a fast one.
Oh, and a lot of my post-SR headcanon is waiting to see how Project Horizons ends, since obviously that's going to have effects on at least the Hoofington region.


Thinking more on the Elements of Harmony... What about having the five (magic excluded) forged by the Diamond Dogs at the height of their skill (or thereabouts; if I decide to tie this into that distant-past-FoE/Landstalker fusion I've still been thinking about, I could have the finishing touches be applied by the Diamond Court in exile), magical artifacts tapping into the very collective magic of the planet or whatever in addition to their own formidable power. The intent would be to use them against the Zebras, but the Diamond Dogs never discovered the sixth element, the reason why the five weren't working. At first I thought that there might be a problem with what the elements key to, but... Loyalty's obviously very valuable for an empire, and honesty can be likewise. Kindness could be explained by culture, though it would probably just kindness to others within the empire itself. Generosity can relate to the willing sacrifices. Laughter's a bit harder... possibly it could be interpreted as "keeping up morale and perseverance no matter what one faces"? In any case, the somewhat corrupted forms of the virtues that the Diamond Dogs were trying to use to activate the elements could be another reason why they didn't work. Assuming that I use this, which I'm still not entirely sure about.

I dunno, how would they use the elements against the zebra?
And do you think the collective magic of the planet equestria would be capable of spreading harmony? We've no indication, and plenty of fanon/canon, indicating no where else is there so much peace as there is in equestria. The changelings stated as much.

I think having the elements made by the dogs takes away from their magical mcguffin power. I prefer to see them as some otherworldly thing, maybe same as Homage's space blaster thing. Overall though they're pretty lame plot device things that I would prefer not to see show up in FoE.

I think FoEniverse could benefit from a long extinct ancient race thing. Diamond Dogs, being one of the few "other" species shown on the cartoon, don't need to pick up the slack for everything. Including them in the bigger picture makes the universe look a lot smaller. I mean, that just narrows down everything to what, 4 species in the entire world holding power? Making up a new race is neat and wouldn't hurt anyone.

Likewise I think FoE fics should be frozen at this point away from FiM series progression. There really is no need to incorporate elements from anything coming up unless it really calls for it. People crying about lack of cadence and changelings was dumb and I see fic writers panicking over this Crystal Empire thing. The cartoon is always going to be expanding and adding new stuff to stay interesting and sell toys, fic writers need not jeopardize their universes just to stay in the now of the source material.

At this point, FoE is its own monster. There's no longer a need for wink and nudge stuff to remind people where its roots are. Be creative!

I dunno. The original zebra civilization, with its star worshipers and everything, seem to fill that role well enough.

That does make sense for them, given their affinity for alchemy and fetish items.

In canon we don't even know what the Elements even really do or how they work beyond the metaphysical magic, or heck, what they even exist for, so I imagine there's room for work in the fic dept for that.

What more do we need to know about pony religion? Because with the focus on virtues and whatnot, the Elements could be some very important religious artifacts.

I came up with some on the spot headcanon (I nearly typed headcannon). While the Zebras were doing their thing, being all magey and calling down stars and whatnot, the Germane and Neighwegians (people of Prancinnati) were still warring clans with little establishment beyond massed families and warbands.

I pretty much blame them for all the weirdness in Equestria. They prevent the natural exchange of day and night as well as the seasons and general weather. They dampen animals' natural instincts and hamper the pony civilization's development. They are the source of all of Equestria's garden of eden-like harmony and Celestia and Luna are, in the end, to blame for their use to this end.
They are a relic of the creation of the world and were misused by alicorns to create their paradise.

Not that there's anything wrong with adding more, but four is still three more than Earth has.

Well, my headcanon has ponies worshipping the sun and, to a lesser extent, moon even before migrating to the Equestrian Peninsula. I choose to interpret the Hearth's Warming Eve play as allegorical rather than a literal history, and I've got the unicorns, instead of actually moving the sun and moon, being the most religious of the three races and performing elaborate rituals believed to ensure their movement.

Oh, and, needless to say, I have the events of the migration and the foundation of equestria being rather darker. When cold and famine raise tensions on three rather insistently separate groups, the leaders of which are all some flavor of stupid, and all three claim the same rich new land for their people… it's unlikely to end with just some light arguing followed by singing.

Oh, I mean that FoE has generated enough background, mysteries and lore that it doesn't need to be tied down to what happens in FiM to progress (like adding changelings and Crystal Empire out of nowhere). However since it is so different and unique, adding something like another race of creatures can be acceptable and integrated well. There shouldn't be a concern over 'betraying canon' and whatnot.

I've decided to limit my contributions to the FoE community to weapons, technology, and possibly culture. No art or advanced headcanon like Hinds or Wavemaster since there be no point in stepping out of my area and looking like a moron. Also, anyone have some ideas on what the land of equestria looks line in FoE? Peninsula, island?

Eh well stuff happens.

For my next bit of headcanon, Prancinnati and a few other places outside of Equestria could possibly have things like IS-3's and PIAT's.

I don't buy it. How do they forge the first five elements without any idea how the Elements work? Where does the sixth come from? Why are the most powerful artifacts known to ponydom the result of incompetent tinkering by a race with little to no magical ability? It feels less like reasonable explanation and more like a contrived shoehorning.

Yes, the people who never cast spells created magnificent artifacts that can give a group of spellcasters the power to defeat the gods themselves! They never got around to completing the set because they couldn't figure out how to use the first five things they made themselves at vast expense! The Virtues don't all match up, but some of them would probably be totally useful to a generic empire if they could actually be used, therefore they must have all come from this one!

Sorry, but this sounds kinda like the cultural equivalent of explaining how your OC is totally responsible for every good thing that happened in the backstory.

Nobody's required to add in every detail of season three any more than Somber was required to retcon in changelings after the wedding. To start with, anything added in S3 has a small enough affect on the world that it hasn't been visible for two years of show, and even if it's still around after an apocalypse and two hundred years it would likely have changed to be unrecognizable, or been so far away that the reduced communicative range of the Wastelanders would just never be aware of it. There's no reason for a specific Fo:E story to need to include a specific part of FiM canon.


Meanwhile, a lot of people like to keep all their headcanons in the same place. If, say, I was doing an analysis of the relationship between Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy in the history of PH, I I'd want to be able to use all the examples I have of interactions between the two, rather than taking many hours checking every snippet I remember to see if it's from after some arbitrary "divergence point" where the story and the show start to contradict each other (and giving up after the second instance, leading to the analysis and discussion never happening). As long as nothing contradicts between the stories, the fanfic continues to be a possible future, a continuation of the story, rather than something unrelated that happens to share some elements. And while that isn't required by any stretch, a lot of people prefer it including many of the authors.

Basically, there is not and never should be a requirement to adjust everything for S3 revelations. But until and unless the FiM writers introduce something that means Fo:E and PH as they are could not happen, there's no reason to declare things AU and several reasons not to. And nothing like that was brought up in S2, so I don't think we're likely to have a problem.

That's what the edit button is for. I use it at least once on like half of my posts because there are a lot of errors that are invisible when you're looking over before posting but just jump out as soon as it's public.
I do that too! Only it's less errors and more failure at thinking coherently.

Well, unless I'm trying to post via phone. Then it's autocorrect and the inability to adequately review my post prior to submission due to the interface.

On the Elements, I came to a variant on Swicked's idea. Reset buttons given to the planet's sentient population in case they didn't want their world to change in a certain way. The only sentients allowed to vote on it, though, were ones that held virtues the creators valued. My idea differs from Swicked's in that they were originally more democratic, channeling the will of all sentients on the planet that held the virtues, and were constantly running, keeping the world in a consensus-defined utopia at all times. Then the Eater of Souls' impact damaged them, and afterwards they were off unless intentionally activated and each element could only have one bearer.

The Crystal Empire might fit into FOE as a weak, officially neutral country that manufactured war material for Equestria and had trade with the zebras banned due to an understanding between Equestrian and Crystalline royalty and an awareness that Equestria could squash the Crystal Empire like a bug. But yeah, there's no need to incorporate every new bit of FIM information into the FOE-verse.

…And here I'm not really sure what you're saying.

Oh, I mean that FoE has generated enough background, mysteries and lore that it doesn't need to be tied down to what happens in FiM to progress (like adding changelings and Crystal Empire out of nowhere). However since it is so different and unique, adding something like another race of creatures can be acceptable and integrated well. There shouldn't be a concern over 'betraying canon' and whatnot.
Oh, of course.

No art or advanced headcanon like Hinds or Wavemaster since there be no point in stepping out of my area and looking like a moron. Also, anyone have some ideas on what the land of equestria looks line in FoE? Peninsula, island?

I know that O. Hinds used to have a link to his headcanon map in his signature, but I'm not sure where that went.

Eh well stuff happens.
What do you mean? It's still... Huh. My signature appears to have vanished. Thank you for bringing this to my attention.
edit: Okay, some of my posts appear to lack signatures. I hypothesize that this may be due to some of them using the box at the bottom of the page rather than the post button.

I'm taking a food break from brushing now. Unfortunately, though, Bronode might be coming down with something, which might possibly result in the chapter being delayed to next weekend.

Is LMR down or something? I can't find it anymore.
from what I can tell from some of the people I follow (and this picture)...
Tumblr went and deleted a lot of porn related blogs, apparently.
That picture from Stories from the Front is completely unrelated. The mod of that blog has just been making fun of tumblr's scheduled maintenance downtime, and ended up drawing that as a joke.

What happened with LMR and several other blogs is that they were reported for TOS violation and deleted (it's nothing new, it's been happening to several big names for quite some time now). In LMR's case, it was for drawing a sexual image of anthro Sweetie Belle and Applebloom, and it happened over a week ago.
