The Gathering of Embers is an event that almost nopony had ever heard of. Thankfully, learning about ended up being a worthwhile experience.

Spring will be sprung. Get ready for a royal party with some medieval flare!

We have released a slight revision to the TM III theme, version 1.0.2; it has some fit and finish adjustments along with a few bug fixes (the majority of these bugs involved the results screens, though). You can download it here or from the main Download page.

The one thing it doesn’t fix is compatibility with SM versions earlier than 5.0.7 (We are not currently recommending 5.0.8 at this time due to several bugs I’ve been hearing about). If you are still running an older SM5 beta, we recommend you get up to date first. Most of the “bugs” users are reporting are a result of using the theme on older versions.

So, was the Season 5 premiere fun, or what? While you’re distracted by oh my gosh NEW EPISODES! and trying to get your cutie marks back, here’s a few updates from the world of TrotMania:

BABScon

There’s an SM setup with the TrotMania songs up at BABScon this weekend if you’re in the Bay Area. Thank you, BLANK3T!

TM III Release

We are planning for a release of TrotMania III this month. Stay tuned for further details.

Forum changes

We are also preparing to do some major changes to the forum; there will be a brand new look, along with new features. This will require some downtime, and there will be a slight reorganization of the forum sections themselves following the transition, but all posts and user accounts will remain intact.

TrotMania III is about the sun and the moon; the light in the dark, the friends you find in a land of strangers, and the evil that waits among the shadows. It’s also about that one pony who doesn’t know what a “PLUR” is supposed to be (in pony terms, its basically the rave culture’s version of the Elements of Harmony, but streamlined into four rather than six. Their L is for love, not laughter), and another who would rather jointly turn this festival into a musical warzone than a celebration of the Summer Solstice. They are the faces of TM III.


Obscurus Noctis is a DJ from Mareami striving to be best in the world; unfortunately, it’s not really working out for her. Obscurus believes her well-deserved spotlight is being constantly stolen by overrated producers putting out songs that are carbon copies of each other with no originality. Her quest for ego intensified, and now she’s going at any length she can to get noticed. So, what is her plan this weekend? Play enchanted records at the Moonbase stage at SSC to hypnotize everypony in attendance, making them unable to escape her music and believe that the night will never end!

Will somepony find a way to defeat her spell before she puts Las Pegasus in the most literal state of trance ever since Episode 700?


If anypony can, it’s this particular stallion. Meet Chaotic Kisol; in case you’re wondering, that’s just his screen name on about a bazillion forums, but everypony else tends to call him that in real life as well. He is a connoisseur of electronic music, but raving, cybergoth fashion, and analyzing the meanings of songs are his hobbies of choice. It was the last of these three hobbies that made him suspicious of Obscurus, as he noticed clues in her recent singles that seemed to suggest she was up to something horrific. Then, he found out that his hometown of Las Pegasus was going to be the target; uh oh. All is not lost, as Kisol might have found the way to counter her musical spells … with the help of some friends of course. If interested, he’s waiting near the VIP area at the Solstice Fortress.

Craving more? We will be coming up with more thorough biographies of these “mascot” characters soon. They are the first members of our “universe”, a shared world that will be occupied by the characters of TrotMania. I hope to provide more details about this universe soon (most likely after TM III is released. There will be news about that very soon, so stay tuned!).

Oh, and by the way, yes, we encourage fan art of these two. In fact, we will (much like EQD) occasionally showcase fan art of our characters or OCs set within the universe too.
