book History
History - What is ☆ The Crystal Chronicles ☆’s history?
Origin - How did ☆ The Crystal Chronicles ☆ originate?

Back in 2017, I decided I wanted to write a backstory for the Crystal Empire. At the time I did not know of the existence of the comic books, and there was very little information given to us through the show.
From there my story grew to encompass almost all of Equestria and beyond.

gavel Rules
Laws of Physics - What are the laws of physics like in ☆ The Crystal Chronicles ☆?

Haha...I have no idea..X) ask pinkie pie

Magic System - What is the magic system like in ☆ The Crystal Chronicles ☆?

There is almost no limit to what you can do, but Unicorns, Alicorns, and other magic-wielding creatures the best at performing magic. The strength of their magic can depend on their magic stores, their level of knowledge, and their emotions.
Earth Ponies and Pegasi each possess a type of sleeper magic.
