From the opening description of the book:
"Whoever you are, wherever you’re from, on one thing we can all agree:
"Everything is better with ponies.
"It is with this in mind that we set out to make My Little Pony: Roleplaying is Magic. With many game systems on the market ranging from vampire intrigue, to cyberpunk dystopias, to dragon-slaying and the diving-into of dungeons, we felt that it was time for something bright and colorful to join these noble and distinguished ranks. Something positive. Something friendly. Something uplifting and just plain fun."
