Pony Lands Regional Message Board
Heh, time to switch colour then.
This is probably because this is mainly a story about six pony friends and their friendship adventures instead of epic battles between horses (even if the show may feature epic battles). Also needing to be taken into account is no one really knows what year or era any of this takes place. It's obvious this doesn't even take place in a world with humans, so the ponies basically have to invent their own technology.
Also take into account that since all of them are sapient, the unicorns would have ruled supreme if people take into account realism. The magic-weilders could manipulate small objects, delicate pieces of machinery that would ensure their dominance.
And not take into account the Hearth's Warming Eve episode?
Also, realism? In a world with talking ponies and magic? That's just silly! Besides racists aren't known for love and tolerance, and would thus ruin the mood of this show.
I'm not sure how Fluttershy can sew, but since according to canon she obviously can, manipulating small objects doesn't seem too limiting.
I do agree that unicorn magic seems more useful than what the other pony tribes get (even though flight is pretty neat), but it wouldn't inevitably lead to dominance, especially since combat is one area where brute force (and staying out of your enemies' reach) can be pretty useful, especially at lower levels of technology.
It's also possible to interpret unicorns as having once been in charge (they seem to be cast as nobles far more often than other ponies), but their power having been eroded in recent times due to civil rights movements. (Where "recent times" might be "starting over a thousand years ago", because Celestia.)
1.) those countries are fiction/not mentioned
2.)moderization is updateing to most common tech levels if you haven't reached them
3.)then your saying they are actually useing spears and steam trains becuase that's the only technology mentioned or shown in mlp fim
speaking of noblity how come only unicorns are at the top of scoiety. Also how come alicorns are only female and only royalty get to be them excluding males which only seem to be unicorns.finaly pony scoiety is incredibly sexist seen as only females get turned into alicorns when they become royalty yet males are left alone
Mind you, "top of society" is a matter of perspective - most nobility we've seen seems to be ceremonial, filled by snobs with no real responsibility (in either sense of the word), while we've seen "commoner" earth ponies who managed to be, well, Filthy Rich through business sense rather than inheritance.
Could be just happenstance. There's only 2-4 of them (depending on whether you acknowledge Princess Twilight and/or Cadence), so all of them being of the same gender, while slightly remarkable, is not especially improbable. With just Celestia and Luna, the chances of them both being the same gender (either both female or both male) is actually the same as the chances of them differing.
It's not really more remarkable than all 6 of the Bearers of the Elements of Harmony being female - since there's more of them, it's actually less probable that they'd all be the same gender.
(Also most red-and-black-alicorn OCs are male, does that balance things out?)
Remember, Blueblood was originally meant to be a duke, not a prince, and changed at the last moment because they thought children might not get what the big deal is about being a duke. He really should have remained a duke, since he obviously isn't anywhere near the social rank of the Princesses (he doesn't seem to have any sort of authority, isn't consulted about important stuff, and isn't invited to events where all royalty are supposed to be in attendance).
I would have liked to claim that he was only referred to as a prince because of Rarity's ignorance (she obviously didn't have much of an idea who he really was), but he does introduce himself as a prince as well, so that doesn't work. Still, I can pretend, and you probably should too.
Clearly Equestria's "tech" level is futuristic. My primary example is the cross-dimensional portal in EQG. One might point out that the mirror was just magic and didn't have much "tech" behind it, but I'd like to acknowledge that exploiting the laws of nature is pretty advanced. Type 5 at least.
Is that so? Interesting.
