Does any other fantasy setting have Earth Ponies? Earth Ponies are the shit, because they're absolute garbage. When fantasy settings, or any settings that offer you a starter Pokemon like a wheel of choices where every con has it pros, the vanilla option is balanced by an ass pull. The human or worse a halfling has something that makes up for it not being able to live for 1000 of years or resist elemental fire. The humans have greater willpower for being like cockroaches, and the race of midget have nightvision or other bullshit.
But the Earth Pony is just downgraded shit. Can't use magic, can't use wings, the mud pony must pick everything off the ground with it's mouth. Unicorns hate them for being unhygienic, and the Pegasus don't even have to tolerate them, since they're barred from their cities by natural selection. They don't even have the insensitive to fuck them. The bloodline of wizards and sorceress is cut by the unicorn that fucks mud ponies, and pegasus will find their offspring ground-bound, unable to live with them in their home country.
And worst of all, even if their children win the dice roll and are not born as mud, the gene is still passed on. At some point, two unicorns or two pegasus can have a mud child, if one of their ancestors fucked a mud.
Mud horses are the absolute fucking garbage, even the most coddled fans admit it. They might say "muh cockroach willpower", but out of 3 options none them picks mud shit as their OC.
More fantasy settings should have Earth Ponies.
