Silver Lining

Dwarf casts Fireball! *throws gunpowder barrel*
Backers' Beta Tester
Good day to you all. I am a mostly inconsequential person, forum denizen and gamer of all flavors. My name is Andrew, but I go by a plethora of names in online communities (the most recent, common choice being Silver or Mercury).

I am a jack of all games, master of none, a player for the game more often than the competition. That said, my experience with competitive fighting games has been tragically shallow, something I hope to rectify soon.

I've been watching ever since Mane6 was making Fighting is Magic, and while I'm not the most avid, up-to-date person on most things, I have definitely been excited watching this project slowly come to be. Diverse lore and characters, simple and deep combat mechanics, and the music...well, I'll just say that good music is life, and what I've heard could keep me going for centuries.

Bah, I've blathered on enough about myself.

Hello all. I go by Vocal Rhapsody. I'm not really into fighting games but this one sounds like it will have an amazing soundtrack.
Have you heard RC88's stuff before? Before working on TFH He did themes for the Mane6 back when the game was Fighting Is Magic and man they were amazing. I cannot WAIT to hear the soundtrack they come up with.

Well that's not as long as I thought!
Well, no, not as long as you make it your fulltime job. In all probability, I would expect the average person to spend 10-15 hours a week at most playing TFH, so it might take between two and a half to four times longer. Twenty years is a long time to be playing a game!

Hello everyone, VRTheChamp here. I'm more used to people calling me VR. I used to play Fighting Games for as long as I can remember, but I never got good with any. Recently started taking Guilty Gear and SFV (when it comes out) a bit more seriously and planning on getting this game under my belt for a lack of better words.

As you might have noticed, I'm new to this community and I'm looking forward to hanging out with you guys! :D

Hello, everyone. I am D-Money107 and it is nice to meet all of you (or see you again in some cases). I first heard about the project through Fighting is Magic and I enjoyed playing the game. Some of my favorite game genres are Fighting (Skullgirls being my top favorite), Beat-em-ups, Platformers, and Racing. The first character I would like to try when given the chance is Oleander.

Hey there, I'm 0Zero100, but most of my friends just call me Jester.
I'm currently working on the dock of The Eagle, Bryan,Texas's, newspaper provider.
I haven't played many 2D fighters, just Street Fighter and some Soul Caliber, but I'm hoping TFH will be my first serious 2D fighter that I'm good at, if not, then I'll still have fun hanging out and having snowball fights in the lobby.

Hey, guys, Nimble Wing here. I've been keeping track of Mane 6 since their original project, and fell in love with Them's Fightin' Herds once it was announced. Not really sure what all to say, but I'll be popping in and out here and there about the forums. It'll be fun!

I'm not reallllly that much of a serious gamer unfortunately but this looks like my kind of game as long as I stay off of the competitive scene. -3-

I am sort of an artist/writer when the mood happens to hit me and my level of art varies greatly. I also like to role play some

Hey, I'm Sigmath Bits! ^^
Lawyer Friendly Equines is basically my life xD But I'm currently in University studying Engineering: Mechatronics. I've only played small amounts of Fighting games, and never been a huge fan really only because of the violence and gore. Personally, I always admired the skill required and mechanics behind it. That mix with the Lawyer Friendly Equines charm is why Them's Fightin' Herds got me really excited, and I really wanted to help out :3
Oh, and I'm a New Zealander: sup Jay ;)

Fighting game-wise I consider smash to be the one I am the best at. I'm a fan of Lawyer Friendly Equines, but am kinda laying off the fan stuff simply cause i'm too busy and into a bunch of other stuff right now. Currently in college for a degree in Computer Science. I enjoyed the Skullgirls scene quite a bit so when they announced this new title I was super down. Hope this turns out super sick!

Hey everyone! I'm PolarisAegis (also known as kirbyfreek33 or Andrethyst)! I enjoy Splatoon (which I stream) and sometimes Smash, and my main fighting game experience comes from ArcSys games (BlazBlue, Persona 4 Arena, and Guilty Gear). I don't really know who I might try playing yet, but I"m looking forward to see how the game progresses as the weeks go on.

Heya. I'm Altashi or more so often known as Limesta.

I'm practically useless, so don't quote me on anything. ;)

Played plenty of fighting games before and am only half-decent at any of them. I backed TFH after hearing about the Indiegogo, since I had already been following M6 since the FiM days and thought TFH had a neat premise. Really digging the character designs and lore bits. Velvet is obviously the best. :>

I've already made several posts, but hey whatever. I only finished setting up my profile recently after getting home. I'm Necroceine. Most call me Necro for short. I'm not into many fighting games being not very good at most, but somehow I ended up here anyway!

In real life I'm a sound tech for a coffeehouse in West Hartford. Have been for about three years now. Enjoying it and looking to turn it into a full time career.

Edit: Oh, and I play 1 or 2 sessions of Pathfinder a week. Up until recently I was the GM of a published campaign, Wrath of the Righteous. It was my first time GMing and a real trial by fire going up to CR 29, which the final boss of the campaign was. I have plans for a low level 13th Age one or two-shot later this month as the beginnings of my effort to get people to use other systems that are better than Pathfinder in my opinion. We play over Skype, but unfortunately my current group is pretty full to bring in other players.

My name is gato and I like to party.



I'm the owner of a small store on a little village where I also happen to reside, I study programming as a hobby tho I never really did anything meaningful with it besides making my life at the store a bit easier. My tastes can be defined as... varied, since I mostly follow whatever hypes me the most at the time. I play RTS, Fighting Games, RPGs, FPS, Hack n Slash yet I don't think I do good at any of them. You could say I'm a cat of all trades yet a master of none. As of now I spend most of my free time playing Phantasy Star Online 2 with some friends, the guy on my avatar is my... Well... Avatar.

I've been following Mane6 since their beginnings, back when they pierced my original (very negative) perception of fangames, and of course I plan to follow them in this new venture of them (especially after all they went through, they really deserve the support). I plan on maining Velvet but I might have a Pocket Arizona in my future plans (or GOAT, time will tell).


I also happen to suck at English so... Whoops! Apologies to all of you who went through this mess.

Hello. I am not much of a fighting game player, or much of a gamer at all. My favorite game is Super Smash Bros. or Pokemon, so I'm not too into the gamer scene.

But I -AM- in to the concept of an all-quadruped character lineup, and I have always lamented out loud how fighting games never implemented feral/quad characters for people to play. So Fighting Is Magic, and subsequently TFH, was a dream come true for me.

I only drew this one bit of fanart for the series so far, but maybe I'll make more in the future. Velvet and Pom are my favorites ( which makes sense, since Rarara and Timid Ferovore Hoers are my favorite ponies ;3 )

I go by the aliases of Vesnseyness if you play games, and the secret Yomol Waspran if you watch ponies, because I don't want my gaming touching my pony.
I play quite a few games, have a nice rig and an extensive knowledge of the video game industry, to an almost embarrassing extend. I do get out though. To do nerdy stuff. Like Dungeons and Dragons. And... yeah, no, that's it. I go play it a lot though, so... go me?
There's a lot more to me then that, of course. I'm fairly okay at drawing, and I like game design (Games. Lots of games.), but... yeah, that's it, really.

You can just call me Vanilla, and I'm sure that like plenty of you I got into this from a love of Lawyer Friendly Equines and fighting games. I'm pretty okay at them (special move inputs aren't an issue for me), though I never had the proper motivation to really practice enough in them to really get good or do a lot of combos. I'm deciding to change that starting with this game, and I hope that eventually I'll be good enough to play in tournaments (though me being in Australia doesn't make that likely).

As an aficionado of cartoons such as Adventure Time, Gravity Falls, Avatar and Steven Universe, as well as fighting games such as Guilty Gear, Tatsunoko vs Capcom, Darkstalkers, Mortal Kombat, Tekken and plenty of others, I'm really hyped for this game for gameplay, presentation and story reasons and I hope for the best quality the team can put out.

Don't quite have enough info on all the character's movesets to determine who I'll main, but so far I'm leaning towards either Oleander or Pom because of their zoning capabilities.
