While most Equestrians are Lawful good some can be chaotic and downright creul at times, many hate seeing others in pain or suffering and wish to cheer up or aid the downtrodden.


Equestrians are roughly 4-6 feet tall and are size medium.


All races have 30 speed except pegasi and alicorns who have a base speed of 35 when walking and 40 while flying.


Unicorns are smart creatures and excellent spell casters, allmost all have acess to basic telekinesis and can lift light to medium objects with little effort and heavy objects with a bit of practice or concentration. Unicorns can also wield fine tools and are excellent tinkerers, doctors, locksmiths, and accountants. They are also well known for their Studious natures and make great scholars, mages, archivists, religeous figures, and insrument players.

HP calculation:  (this overrides class hit dice) 1D8 per Unicorn level + Cons. Modifier

Beings may perform Strength 15 or Wisdom 15 saving throws to escape on caster's and their turn, beings can be immobilized or allowed to move at casters will.

Short Teleport: Level 3 minimum (can be cast once for every 3 levels in a day and are restored every long rest IE: level 3 = 1 cast, level 9 = 3 cast) can teleport 5 willing beings + 1 for every 3 levels up to 50 feet + 10 per level to any location within sight or through walls to rooms/areas the caster has been.


Pegasi are dexterous and speedy beings well known for their aerial prowess and acrobatic feats as well as an appealing charm. Pegasi can also control the weather and cloud formations through physical manipulations of clouds and air currents. Pegasi are often fast and sleek and excell in jobs such as Weather patrolers, couriers, racing/stunt flying, spies, merchants, and astrologists

HP calculation: (this overrides class hit dice) 1D10 per Pegasi level + cons. Modifier

Flight: Pegasi can fly at will and can navigate storms with ease their speed is increased and Dex saving throws and jumps/glides have advantage. However certain conditions such as thermals caused by large fires/lava, turbulent weather, injured wings, exaustion level 3 cause disadvantage for many actions such as attacking, saving throws, and acrobatics checks. Staying airborne for an hour or 20 turns causes exaustion to increase by 1.

Lightning resistance: [passive] take 1/2 damage from lightning based attacks.

Wind resistance: [passive] take 1/2 damage from wind based attacks

Speed up: [passive]  Every 5 levels add 5 feet of movement for land travel, and 10 feet of flight travel.


Earth ponies are strong and hardy and are attuned for nature. Earth pony farmers have great knowledge of fauna both common and exotic and are amoung the most stalwart among the three common equestrian races. They can bear heavy loads and can withstand both elements and attacks easier than the other two common races. Earth ponies excell at jobs such as farmers, botanists, millitary/police carrers, builders, transportation/moving companies.

Wide block: can take 4/5ths melee/ranged physical weapon damage inplace of all alies (or selected allies) within 5 feet for 4 turns. Doesn't affect Area of effect spells, line spells, or non-physical attacks such as mind spells, levitation, or similar spells

Universal Skills:

When an equestrian Pegasi, Earth pony, or Unicorn reaches level 20, they can recieve 1 of 2 Skills, their choice.


The being is Transformed into the Alicorn race, their level is sent back to level 1 and their HP max is halved. They retain all abilities, skills, equiqment, spells, spell slots, and knowledge. They are also cured of all status ailments, curses, and states (except petrificatuon, Wish debuff, and ailments/curses brought on by their equipment). This skill is unusable on others and cannot be used a second time.

The user aditionally gains shield, aid, etherealness and bless for 10 turns


Alicorns are rare. Exceedingly rare especially those that are naturally born of which there are 2 known to have ever been born Alicorns, the others have ascended from either Earth, Pegasi, or Unicorn equestrians. Alicorns have Magical abilities surpasing most unicorns, flight capabilities spanning greater than the average pegasi, and strength greater than a large sum of earth ponies. Their lifespans are unknown as one has never died of age, or natural causes. Alicorns are royalty amongst the Equestrian society often with kingdoms of their own.
