–From the Terminal of Novel Idea–

Fillies and colts, I am utterly delighted to announce that the completely remastered edition of Fallout: Equestria (The Manehattan Edition) is in the final phases of completion! In fact, we plan to make it fully available to everyone next Thursday! Not only is this professionally remastered by our very own Corvus, a stallion of many talents, but it also has a special surprise at the very end. A surprise we’re going to be releasing concurrently with the new version.

Thank you all for your patience as we have worked tirelessly getting you the best possible version of The Book of Littlepip for your auditory enjoyment, in conjunction with our ongoing creation efforts for “This Coming Storm” and dealing with the wonderful aftermath of Gardens of Equestria: Smuggler’s Run, now available on Nexus Mods!

In fact, I’d like to sit down and talk to you about that for a bit.

Let’s first talk stats. I like these numbers. Because they blow my mind away!

We have, as of this writing, 90 endorsements, 1,948 unique downloads, 2,227 total downloads and 26,193 total page views! In three weeks! THREE WEEKS! We’ve actually gotten so much attention that we are currently listed as one of the Nexus Mod’s “Hot Files!”

Now, here’s the honest truth: we announced Smuggler’s Run in a few places: the MLP Reddit, the FO:E Reddit, Equestria Daily, FiMFiction.com, my personal deviantArt Account, YouTube and Twitter. Every single one of those are fan communities. And you are the ones who drove our numbers into the stratosphere! While it seems like we were all over the internet, we really weren’t. Only those who were already watching us or were in those communities knew about it…and told their friends!

I know no one expected for us to launch a preview experience just a month and a half after the reveal of Gardens of Equestria, but golly did you folks enjoy it!

Not only that, but we’ve had many new applicants in the last few days! And what does that mean for you?

More fun stuff, of course! We’re totally thrilled to have folks experienced in the Gardens of Equestria Creation Kit and the creation of models and new textures. All this means is you get a better result in the end. More epic weapons. More unique armor. And something that could very well blow your mind…which we’re keeping entirely under our hats. ^^

That being said, we’re still looking for a PR person and potentially more experienced scripters, along with a few female voice actresses. The sooner we get a PR person, the more we can focus on making “This Coming Storm” an experience unlike any other. If you might be up for the challenge, just send in an application! 

Finally, with us now on the front page of the Nexus, it has gathered some attention from the less savory elements of the internet. We’ve already posted our response to all of those folks. Attacks, threats and other sort of derogatory comments will be dealt with. We’ll report those who need reporting and delete those who are just shy of that line. So please don’t bother responding, because your reply will be deleted as well (it’s just how the system works, not that we’re intentionally deleting your words).

We do appreciate those who have stood up for us though. Last weekend was rough…and to get that level of support was a wonderful antidote to the vitriol that was being poured atop us.

We’ll be showcasing some of our new talent in the coming weeks, after the new Audiobook comes out. I’ve also heard rumors that DJ-PON3 will be doing some interviews soon!

Until then, have a wonderful day and stay safe out there!
