BronyTales

Hiya!

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 everypony! This year, once again, we have asked the community what they are thankful for this Thanksgiving! Here is what you all had to say:

Hello, everyone! We wanted to go over the updates to the server in a bit more detail, so we made a blog post for it!

First and foremost, let's start with EcoEnchants:
- Wisdom: XP increase at max level has been reduced to 75% increased XP (was 90%).
- Intellect: XP increase at max level has been reduced to 100% (was 240%).
- Toxic: Now conflicts with fire aspect.
- Spells: Quake and Vitalize have been disabled. All others are now exclusive to books and can only be obtained from villagers. Charge may be applied to swords, however.
- Blast Mining: Now allows unbreaking to be added. Mending is still disallowed for balancing purposes.
- Boss Hunter: Max level has been decreased to 4 (was 8).
- Cerebral & Cranial: Decreased max level to 4 (was 8). Damage per level was increased slightly to compensate for this (0.03 to 0.0375). Damage increase at max level is 15%.
- End Infusion, Ender Slayer, Enderism, Hellish, Nether Infusion, Netheric, Respirator, and Void Affinity: Are now exclusive to villagers and cannot be obtained in enchanting tables or on looted items.
- Fire Affinity: Max level decreased from 7 to 3.
- Marking: Damage increase has been reduced to 15% (was 25%).
- Artifacts: All are now exclusive to villagers and cannot be obtained in enchanting tables or on looted items.

Many enchantments have been removed to reduce clutter and help with balancing (both PvE and PvP):
Abattoir, Aerial, Annihilate, Arcanic, Ascend, Atmospheric, Atmospheric, Backstab, Bladed, Bleed, Blind, Buckshot, Carve, Chopless, Cleave, Conclude, Cubism, Curse of Breaklessness, Curse of Fragility, Curse of Hunger, Curse of Misfortune, Defusion, Disappear, Diverse, Dousing, Dullness, Dweller, Evasion, Extract, Fetching, Finality, Finishing, First Strike, Force, Freerunner, Frozen, Goliath, Grapple, Hook, Ice Shot, Illusion Aspect, Impact, Incandescence, Insecticide, Introversion, Invigoration, Levitate, Life Steal, Liquid Shot, Optics, Pacify, Paladin, Parasitic, Parry, Phantasm, Plasmic, Preservation, Proximity, Puncture, Quadrilateralism, Quake, Razor, Rebounding, Rejuvenation, Revenant, Settle, Shockwave, Shot Assist, Sickening, Slicing, Spearfishing, Splash, Spring, Stalwart, Stone Switcher, Stray Aspect, Succession, Supercritical, Tectonic, Tornado, Vampire Aspect, Venom, Vitalize, Voltage, Water Affinity, Water Aspect, Weakening, Wood Switcher, and Wound.

Hi there everypony! Long time no blog! This year for Thanksgiving, we thought it’d be a fun idea to ask the community what we’re most thankful for this year. Find the results below!

Hiya! Resident server pony checking in with another super tardy blog update for y’all! In this episode of “Derpy talks about stuff” we take a look back at the life and times of the server, the community, the staff, the joys and tears, the hardships and the friends along the way, each and every update installed and database issue resolved… Nah, I’m pulling your leg. We did an Ask-Me-Anything!

Hey y’all! Another late-night blog with little more than an idea and a deadline: How about a blurb about what goes into managing a server like BronyTales? More after the break!

Continuing from our series on roleplay applications, I'd like to share another that caught our eye. Sweetie Belle!

Oh my cookies, these past few weeks have been something! I don’t know about you, but I am still recovering from all the fun that was had. Crystallic Sombers, also known as CS, hosted its very first server wide event: The 12 days of Christmas.

Canon roles on BronyTales are intrinsically linked with roleplay and, to a certain extent, community perception. A bit more on the application process after the break!


Happy November, my little ponies! Today I'd like to take some time to reflect on our recent event: Nightmare Night. We had an amazing turn out by the community and its only natural that we should commemorate something like this with a proper blog post. To start us off, we hit a record player count of 47 players on at the same time, that's crazy! Roughly twenty or so players participated in the costume contest, and we had about 10 writing entries for our story contest. We didn't know what to expect to see that night, but we were amazed at how positive the community was, and how active people were with participating in the fun. You all really made that night something to remember, so I'd like to thank you from the bottom of my heart for joining us in the fun.
