Mini-Quests: Welcome to Equestria


Chanda

Recommended Posts

You wake up suddenly. Your heart is racing. Something is different. "Where am I?" You try to get up and fall down. "Where did all these legs came from?" You try to get up again and hear a strange sound when your feet touch the ground. You look down and are shocked to see hooves at the end of a set of long, thin and very hairy legs. "WHAT AM I?"

You manage to get control of your four legs and make your way to a mirror. You look into the mirror. A pony looks right back at you. You rear up on your hind legs and let out a big "NEIGH" before loosing your balance and falling down again. "Stay calm. This must be some kind of freaky dream. Relax." You head out the door trying to figure out what is going on. You trot around for a bit enjoying the feeling of the wind in your mane. You encounter other ponies and observe then with intense curiosity as they go about their day.  You soon discover you are in a place called Equestria. The other thing you notice is that every grown pony has something called a "cutie mark". When you ask about it, you learn that a cutie mark magically appears on the flank of a pony when he or she discovers their special talent. You wonder what your cutie mark is and rush back to the house where you woke up. You study yourself in the mirror. "Where's my cutie mark?". You twist in very direction trying to get a better look. To no avail, your flanks are blank!

 

You do not know what happened to turn you into a pony and relocate you to Equestria. Nonetheless, as a good NF Rebel, you know its your duty to make the best of a strange and unexpected situation. You decide you are going to be the best darned pony you can be, at least until you find away to wake up from this strange dream. First thing you need to do to fit in as a pony in Equestria is to to earn your cutie mark. If nothing else it will give you something to do while you figure out what is going on.  

 

 

 

Cutie Mark Tiny-Quests:

There are six My Little Pony inspired tiny-quests for you to pursue over the next 5 weeks. The rules are:

  1. Complete all 6 tiny-quests to earn yourself 1 attribute point. You can choose which attribute earns the point.
  2. All 6 tiny-quests are posted all at once in this post, instead of 1 at a time. The reason for this is that it will give you your best chance of completing all of them based on what is going on with life and to make the best use of whatever opportunities come up. 
  3. You can complete the tiny-quests in whatever order works best for you. 
  4. Try to complete 1 tiny-quest every few days, instead of doing them all at once.
  5. Try to complete your tiny-quests sooner rather than later... You want the last week to be free so you can focus on your own challenge!
  6. Enter your name and details of each completed tiny-quest here: Cutie Mark Quest Log Book
  7. For extra fun you can give yourself a Pony name (optional).
 
You start by trying out some of the talents of the other ponies you have met:
  • Twilight Sparkle:  is studious and represents the element of magic. Find a good book or other information source for a topic you have been meaning to learn about or an area you want to improve yourself. When you act with knowledge... the results feel like they are magic!

  • Applejack: is reliable and represents the element of honesty. Complete a task you have promised someone else that you would get done and have been procrastinating about.

  • Pinkie Pie: is playful and represents the element of laughter. Do something that is a lot of fun and brings you to happy carefree laughter.

  • Rainbow Dash: is brave and represents the element of loyalty. Use the 20 second berserker mode to do something you have been to shy or afraid to do. Alternatively, do something/anything much faster than you normally do it (but not so fast that you hurt yourself).

  • Rarity: is stylish and beautiful and represents the element of generosity. Do something to improve the way you look or to bring beauty to a room in your house or workplace.

  • Fluttershy: is sweet and calm and represents the element of kindness. Find a place where you can meditate, reflect or simply do nothing, a place you can visit when you need to restore your calm and ground yourself. if you already have such a place... make a point of using it more. Or find an additional such place (for example one you can access at work). Alternatively, do something/anything much slower than you normally do it (but not so slow that you fall asleep). Hint: you can choose to do the same activity from Rainbow Dash but very slowly.

The Great Druid Book of Yoga Poses:

 

You also learn that Princess Celestia has asked Twilight Sparkle to document the yoga poses known and used by the Ponies in Equestria. You jump for joy when you hear about this project. Like most good Druids, you know your yoga and this is something you can help your new friend Twilight Sparkle with. 
 
 
For those Druids that don't practice yoga (and yes, there are also good Druids that don't do yoga!): This is your chance to get a bit of an insight into what poses exist. :)

Going out of town again tomorrow but as soon as I'm back -- plan to be all over it.  Always did like those ponies.

 

Also -- terrific idea to lay them all out in the beginning.

Made a plan for an Applejack quest--catching up on documentation I promised DH I would deal with.  I also added some entries to the Great Druid Book of Yoga Poses.  I think that's 1 WIS point?

Who'd've dreamed that such cute little ponies would give me the push I needed to both force some fun inyo my life and get an un-fun to-do item behind me. !!!???

Caught up on quests after a week of vacation.  Some are much easier for me--I'm STILL working on my Applejack quest, but finished several others without even realizing it.

I understand that I wont get any points for it but I'm going to do these mini challenges anway cos I feel like they speak to me. Seeing as I've only just discovered this though, that gives me 2 weeks. Lol. I reckon thats plenty of time though :D

Great mini-challenge.  So far every item completed is one from the procrastination checklist.  Double-fun!  I'm stuck on what to do to scare myself (for Rainbow Dash). I think it's supposed to be something I've wanted to do, but was scared to, instead of something I seek out specifically to scare myself?

I completed Rainbow dash yesterday when I made a phonecall and other preparations related to my new job. I have been putting it off out of fear that unknown difficulties would arise. They didn't :-))
