The adventure starts right before a big party organized by Twilight Sparkle is set to get underway. Tempest Shadow and Grubber show up on behalf of the evil Storm King looking to kidnap the princesses and wreak havoc with the universe.

In their attempts to keep Equestria out of the Storm King’s grip, the ponies have to rely on one another to overcome difficulty and make it through some tough, never-before-seen challenges. But in order to save Equestria, they need to find help. That’s something that definitely is not easy and the ponies are not even sure who they can trust.

On their quest, they encounter a classy and crafty cat known as Capper. Can they trust him or not? After all, he is a stranger and they have no idea what his motives are. But on the other hand, what might happen if they don’t trust him?
