The concept of patrons is as old as the adventure genre itself. Someone needs to sponsor the party - might as well be someone important and superior to them. Patrons drive the players toward goals, inform them of necessary lore, and reward them upon completing a quest; solving the three most central problems of building an adventure. The challenge then is creating a patron that the players will trust, respect, and rely upon... rather than eventually deceive and betray.

You know, I'd never considered it, but now I kind of want to see the ponies betray Princess Celestia into the hands of dark forces...

I'm starting to get a feel for the pacing...Not nearly as fast as Darths and Droids, for sure.

Well, it did just start. I'm sure the pace will quiken after the mane six get properly introduced.

If you're interested, I ended up making a Pony race for my campaign for one of my players. Though it shows them living in a non-Equestrian world, I'm sure it could be tweaked slightly to fit. I'd need to find a way to contact you directly though.

And, here, we see Twilight complaining about working to make somepony else work harder.
