Images & Descriptions to come The land that this story takes place in is not Equestria, but exists in the same world. The main differences between Equestria and this place is the pony races. They are minor differences, but everything is a little more restricted here. Magic is absent save for a few certain artifacts and creatures. 
Earthponies: The strongest race, much as they are usually 
Unicorns: No magic, but high intelligence 
Pegasi: Few have the ability to fly a distance, mostly gliding. Otherwise built for speed
