Hex Games Releases Laser Ponies
Laser Ponies, the newest PDF from Hex Games, is now availabe for download at Drivethrurpg, Paizo, RPGnow, YourGamesNow, and the Hex Games web site. The game takes place on the faraway magical world of Panagonia in the heart of Glitter Valley, home of the Laser Ponies. As the name suggests, the Laser Ponies are magical ponies who can shoot lasers out of their eyes. When necessary, they use these lasers to fight the monstrous minions of the evil Chasm Queen.
According to author Leighton Connor, "Laser Ponies is intended as the ultimate 80's Saturday morning cartoon for girls, one unhindered by watchdog groups or cheap animation. The Laser Ponies romp, frolic, and play. And when they need to defend themselves, they can shoot lasers out of their eyes. These lasers can destroy rocks, and they can also kill monsters. Every Laser Ponies game session should feature humor, magic, character interaction, and thrilling laser-blasting action."
Laser Ponies is for girls and boys alike, and is the first all-ages role-playing game from Hex Games. It uses the QAGS system, but you do not have to own the QAGS rulebook—the QAGS Qik Start rules, which tell you everything you need to know to play the game, are included in the back of the book. Also included are rules for Pony Power, 40 story ideas, sample characters, illustrations by up-and-coming young artist Katie Staffiera, and a character sheet featuring a pony that you can color and decorate to match your character.
Laser Ponies is a 24 page PDF with a retail price of $1.99.
