We are experiencing technical difficulties. Please do not adjust your sets, your regular Lyra will resume shortly.
Obligatory spin-off comment! That's just mean, isn't it? According to the trailer it actually seems that a character somewhat reminiscent of Lyra should appear in EQG, so don't worry, there's a good chance your favourite anthropologist will experience all the wonders of our world. Then again, it could be that it's only Twilight and Spike who will get to do that. I get this strong impression that all the other characters are simply equivalents of the ponies who won't actually recognise Twilight. Why? Well, there could be a technical reason - try to imagine populating a new world with a whole cast of credible characters at one go - kind of tricky. By now I'm actually curious to find out what the whole deal is.
