Commission - A Well Balanced Party by Valkyrie-Girl Commission - A Well Balanced Party by Valkyrie-Girl
Though I can't say the title is entirely true due to the lack of magic user. But no matter!

Here we have a commission done for the delightful :iconravah-kjb: and his pony D&D/RP group. I can't say that I've ever done a piece with so many ponies in it. It was great fun to work out the composition. And all the ponies are so cute!

As usual, please don't use this without the permission of the commissioner. They paid for it so they get to do as they please with it.

Thanks! I'm pretty sure they're just called bat ponies.

What I mean is that what with it being a D&D setting it's odd that there doesn't seem to be a dedicated magic user like a wizard or a sorcerer in the party. While all unicorns can use magic it appears that non of them would be using it for casting, but rather for combat like wielding weapons.  There only seems to be melee or stealth type classes.

I think it's about time I came one here and said thanks for the commission. The tough looking Paladin pony on the right was very much a pleasure to play.

Thanks again!

P.S. Are those unshorn fetlocks on the Paladin pony?

Well I am very pleased that you like how it turned out. It was great fun working on this piece.

And yes those are fluffy fetlocks. Makes a pony look tough.

I must say thanks to you and to :iconravah-kjb:, our DM, for getting this for us.
My character is the polearm-wielding unicorn in the back.

Cool pic! :D When I first read the title I immediately began scouting the pic for a "well" XD XD XD

It's a very stealthy well. It's the party's rogue in fact. Good luck finding it!

Three unicorns and no magic users? What an odd concept. I definitely like that they included a batpony in their group, though; looks like she's the group's rogue.

Very nice work on this picture.

Maybe unicorns can cast spells with armor. The old rules always said it was impossible to cast spells when one was covered in armor. No way to properly wave ones arms around...But they don't use their mouths or arms to cast spells. Just their horns..

Actually, I said that because the description clearly states that the party has no magic user.

Oh. Isn't the guy on the right, Shining Armor?
Reply
:iconjezendar:
Jezendar Featured By Owner Apr 6, 2013  Hobbyist General Artist
Shining Armor has blue eyes, not red, and his mane and tail have stripes in multiple shades of blue. Besides, the description states that these are the characters of a role playing group. Such groups typically wouldn't allow players to play important canon characters from the game's setting, as these characters would be a lot more powerful than what a player would normally be playing.

Depends on where you go..Canterlot.com lets players play MOST of the mane characters..And background ponies....But you have to work hard to get the rights to the character and you have to work even harder to keep said character. You just can't play the god type characters....Like Celestia..Discord..Etc...

That's what I visit Canterlot.com ([link]) for RPS With Marshmallow colored talky personal small horses. Still, not sure how they could use all of those weapons. ;)

One of those things I hope they show in Season 4. They show a glimpse of the bats in "Luna Eclipsed" and that's it. I'm curious what their deal is..
