Well well well, before the bad stuff happened to the forums and all olden topics lost and all that, I held an association of sorts for travelling ponies, and now the time have come to restart it, under another name: The Travellers Blessing.

This herd is a group of travellers willing to help each other out, and fellow travellers. We seek to make the roads a cosy and safe place to traverse.

Spoiler: So, first a wee background for this herd, written by the most brilliant Valentine. • show

[center]Long ago, after the twin sisters banished the evil Discord with the Elements of Harmony, Equestria was finally free to grow
and prosper as its founders had wished.  Unfortunately, the chaos that Discord wrought upon the land was great and
widespread, leaving many ponies, though free, still no better off then they were under his rule.  A group of Unicorns
from the newly founded city of Canterlot could not be at ease knowing that others suffered throughout the land.  This group
banded together to from a Blessing whos sole purpose was to go to every corner of Equestria and help their brethren where
they could.  As word spread of the great deeds of these travelling unicorns, they became known as the Travellers Blessing.

Time passed, and through the years some unicorns settled down in the towns they assisted, started new settlements of their
own, or just became too old to continue travelling.  Slowly, their numbers dwindled, and it became apparent that for the
survival of the Blessing they needed to recruit new members, and began to accept others who shared their goals, even if
they were not unicorns.

Eventually, the Travellers Blessing completed it's goal and Equestria was a land of plenty and happiness for all of it's
citizens.  It's members pleased, but not satisfied, gave themselves a new goal.  Over the ages it has been in existance, the
Travellers Blessing has been to all corners of Equestria and have seen many things.  Their new goal, to help and assist
anypony who wishes to travel the land; giving them help, safety, and comraderie.

This is how the Travellers Blessing of today came to be.

Spoiler: Lyrics by Magus • show

Far over the Canterlot Mountains tall,
To Luna's keep, Celestia's hall.
Timberwolves howl in the dark;
The dragons come to leave their mark.
The clouds turn pink,
Our spirits sink,
Equestria fell to Discord's might,
But we returned, him for to smite!

But vict'ry was tempered with mourning.
Suffering ponies, our actions scorning
Showed us the pain that Discord had left,
And though we'd won, of joy we were bereft.
For traveller's aid,
A Blessing we made.
From fair Canterlot out to the world
We travelled Equestria with banners unfurled.

And over the years our numbers grew small,
For our group unicorns alone did call.
And so at last we opened up our herd,
And in non-unicorns our group conferred.
And then once more
In days of yore,
We walked the paths Equestrian
To help the lost pedestrian.

Now, long after those dark days,
Our Watchers strong still guard the ways.
And though we finished all our founders willed,
And we the land with peace have filled
We carry on,
With every dawn,
To finish now our herd's new goal:
To help each stallion, mare and foal.

Once again we climb the mountains tall,
In triumph over Discord's fall!
Our friendships held, our honesty stood strong.
Our kindness grew; our laughter in song
A generous gift
Friends to uplift.
The Traveller's Blessing, wanderer's friend,
Equestria's roads we still defend!

Oh, it would appear that I got some fancy title, Notable pony, now that's something that I had not expected to gain.
Thanks everypony, for this most brilliant thing.

Activity: (This means how active we are, right?) Pretty high. I'm on this forum almost every day, even when away from home. When the game comes out I will not be able to access it as much as I do the forum (unless it somehow runs on my phone...) but I will try to be on as much as is possible.
Planned Race: Unicorn
Reason to join: I always love having an option to explore and travel in any game that I play (this is one of the reasons Skyrim has kept me amused for so long) and exploring is pretty much exactly what I want to be doing in LoE. To have a big group of ponies to travel with really appeals to me.

Grand to see such a active and dedicated member as the first other pony in this herd.
Welcome to this blessing. *Bows*

Planned race: Pegasus
Reason to join: I enjoy being in a group, but not -in- the group. If we travel together, don't expect me to walk beside you. I'll keep my distance and watch from afar, thank you. However, I do enjoy traveling and seeing new land, as well as protecting my friends, and coming together with a ragtag bunch of misfits to explore dangerous territory. So I figured, why not make it official?
... Just don't expect me to talk much.

Precisely, so did Travius start out as. Just an image for my avatar, he evolved into what he is now from there.
