Poor Twilight. She had to put up with a LOT on her first visit to Ponyville, and not just the (heaven forbid) friendship.

...Wow. Good thing 4th edition (that's basically what this is, right?) ramped up hit points. In 3.5, assuming 18 CON and no weird feats or such, a level 1 wizard such as Twilight might have as many as 8 hp.

I have no idea how much damage a 3.5 Rainbow might do. I'm sure there are (were?) rules for body-slams, even if only in third-party books, but I'm not all that up on the intricacies of combat rules.

You got rules for Bull Rush in 4th and Pathfinder to my knowledge (Pathfinder being my point of reference for 3rd ed thingeys). Regardless, you're pretty right about her squish levels. Poor Twilight :P

I think both 4E and Pathfinder ramped up hitpoints. For Pathfinder, assuming 18 Con and no weird feats and such, a 1st level wizard would *always* have 10 hp, to my knowledge. (still kinda squishy.) What's the max in 4E with 18 Con?

A wizards HP at level 1 in 4E is 10+CON score. So at 18 con a wizard would have 28 HP.

18 Constitution? What kind of wizard are you building?

The cast page has stats and stuff. Twilight has 20 hp, so she's not dead. Not sure about the math though, could she have been killed?

4e doesn't have saving throws versus massive damage. A PC falls unconscious at 0hp and is dead dead at negative bloodied (1/2 max HP). So no, Twilight was never in danger assuming that all Dash did was a Melee Basic/Charge. With Dash's stats and assuming hooves don't count as anything more than Unarmed, Charge is +4 Attack vs AC (+3 for STR+1/2 level, +1 for Charge) with damage of 1d4+3 (Unarmed: 1d4, +3 for STR Mod). 20HP is standard for most 4e Wizards at first level, assuming they're not playing the INT/CON build.

Though on another note, Twilight looks a little too happy in the third panel... Am I the only one who sees an unusually joyful expression for someone who just got tackled by a Pegasus?

Twilight looks "happy" in the panel she is being tackled because she was happy right before she got tackled. Dash hit her so fast that her facial expression didn't have time to change.
