So blogging about stuff is a new thing I'm going to start trying out. Found a basic website free to use, spruced it up a little on the backend with some duck tape and glued some googly eyes on and viola! Better than new!

I've got a bit of a backlog of stuff to write about, so expect to see some new stuff soon! I really got strapped onto a rocket-powered rollercoaster when I offered to start hosting a Minecraft server for y'all, and this past year has been a doozy!

Hope to see ya soon!
Hello, so today we'll be discussing roleplay.

Roleplay is a large part of the Bronytales community, But it can be hard to figure out how to roleplay, especially when jumping into existing roleplays or trying to start a new one.

Hey y'all, Mr_Some1 here, though you probably know me as Starlight. Today I get to do a little guest appearance on this blog thingy and talk about one of my favorite topics! No, not equality, and not bad fanfictions either (though I do LOVE those). One thing I've asked myself frequently is "Why does BronyTales work? Specifically, why have I stuck around?" It's an interesting question that I and many other players may have had, and today, I'll be looking into solving that!

So before I ran a Minecraft server, I almost ran my own convention. Ultimately the idea got shut down before I could even start because of an over-eager future manager and the convention drove itself into a financial hole soon after.

Story Time!

On April 14th 2019, BronyTales opened to the public as a “crash pad” for players being displaced from another MLP Minecraft server that had announced it would be shutting down. Over time, it has grown from a hastily-released half-finished development server to a full fledged community, to which I am forever grateful for everyone involved - players, staff, donors, even the trolls. Without you all, we would not be where we are today.

More about the history of BronyTales after the break!
