Hello and welcome to the roleplay announcement thread. This thread is intended as a place to post roleplay-related announcements and notices - that includes recruiting for and advertising upcoming threads, requesting specific types of threads or contact with specific kinds of players and other activities directly associated with roleplay. It is not intended for discussions, roleplaying or chatting. Think of this thread as a billboard - a place to post and read notices, but not hold a conversation in. Also keep in mind that any off-topic posts will be reported for removal, so please don't derail the thread with such - it just means needless work for everyone involved.

How to post an announcement?
Think of it as posting an ad to the newspaper - be as clear and concise as you can be. An example would be;
A lighthearted "Sharing is Caring" canon thread is planned to kick off about two hours from now. We're looking for one more player who might find themselves in Sugarcube corner. You can contact me on Steam as GenericName, via email or leave me a message in >>2951413.

This example covered the essential things - it gives out the outline of the thread, which is useful not only for prospective participants, but also anyone who might want to lurk it, it says what it needs and lists several ways of contacting the poster, to apply or to ask additional questions, outside of the announcement thread.

Another, simpler announcement might be this;
Looking for a FiM-friendly thread or another poster to join for an adventure series. I like sunsets and long posts on the beach and am usually active around tweleventeen o'clock CBT. Looking forward to hearing from you!

This example is almost, but not quite good - while it points out what the poster is looking for and when they're available, it neglects to mention any way of getting a hold of the player. Don't be afraid of injecting some humor or person

#FAQ#Recommended Reading
Hi there! If you're checking this thread out, this might mean that you're new to this community, and I invite you to please read until the end! It's not necessary reading, but it has a lot of useful information that disregarding would be very counterproductive!


Q: Where can I get in touch with other roleplayers?
The best place to get in touch with other roleplayers, be it for casual chatting, discussing ideas or looking for people to join your canon, Come visit the Roleplay IRC.

Q: What is a "Canon"?
A: A "Canon" is a set universe that is separate from all the other set universes, which means it follows different laws and players. For example, both of the Canons Destination: Equestria and Harmony have a Twilight Sparkle, but each one is played by a different person, and whatever one person does doesn't affect the other in any way. Each Canon is a different universe, wholly separate from any other Canon (we have a Cross-Canon tag for things like these.)

Q: What are these boxes under the thread titles? What do they mean?

#Ask/invite #Canon: The Creators #Fresh start #Adventure #Violence #Ponies #Non-pony #Semi-serious #Normal #Sign-up #No humans

Surely, us being the MLP FIM fans we are, we all remember MLP FIM season 2 episode 11, or overall episode 37, "Hearth's Warming Eve." In this episode, The Mane Six put on a play about the creation of Equestria, how the three races of unicorn, pegasus, and earth pony came together to create the harmonious nation we see today.
Pinkie Pie played Chancellor Puddinghead, the leader of the earth pony tribe. Applejack played Smart Cookie, Chancellor Puddinghead's secretary.
Rarity played Princess Platinum, the daughter of the Unicorn King who acts as his representative and is by extension, the leader of the unicorn pony tribe. Twilight Sparkle played Clover the Clever, an adviser to Princess Platinum.
Rainbow Dash played Commander Hurricane, the leader of the pegasus pony tribe. Fluttershy played Private Pansy, a subordinate of Commander Hurricane.
But Hearth's Warming Eve didn't tell the whole story of how this noble nation was formed. A few years after the events shown in Hearth's Warming Eve, things still weren't going as planned. The nation still hadn't reached it's full potential. There were still numerous amounts of uncharted lands, food shortages were common, and it seemed that every day was a competition to just survive.
However, we can change all that. We can bring Equestria to the nation it is today with our own hooves, claws, wings, whatever you may have. It's all up to write the history of the formation of Equestria.
Please complete a character sheet.

Race: I would like to be a Time Pony, but I have to ask you about that first. Seeing as though that is only canon in the IDW Comics.

Age: Somewhere around four-hundred.

Cutie Mark: Resembles a pocket watch, the numbers are labeled with roman numerals. The pocket watch itself is made of a gold-like material.

Class: Peasant (of the humble variety.)

“What is this place, filled with so many wonders? Casting its spell, of which I am now under. Squirrels in the trees and the cute little bunnies. Birds flying free and the bees with their honey. Oh, what a magical place. And I owe it all to the pegasus race. If I knew the ground had so much up its sleeve, I’d have come here sooner, and never leave. Yes, I love everything!” ~ Fluttershy
From how Fluttershy describes the grounds of Equestria, many would conclude that it is indeed a marvelous place to be. Or, at least, it was. The safety and well-being of Equestria has been threatened many times, whether from Discord, Nightmare Moon, or the evil changeling Queen Chrysalis. However, one of Equestria’s princesses always managed to step in and save the day. But that’s changed. Ponies are no longer sure if they can rely on their princesses for safety. Not since Princess Cadence disappeared… and was found dead three days later, her face frozen in an expression of fright and terror. Cause of death? Unknown.
Princess Celestia still hasn’t recovered from the loss. No longer the regal ruler she once was, Princess Celestia spends most of her time locked away in her room in the Canterlot Palace. Her mood has even started to affect the sun itself, taking on a darker tint. Princess Luna struggles to calm the population and prevent any mass hysteria. Princess Twilight pours over endless books in Princess Celestia and Princess Luna’s old castle in the Everfree Forest, looking for an explanation to Cadence’s death. Shining Armour hasn’t been seen in months. The average pony’s life is no longer peaceful, but full of fear. After all, if an alicorn princess

Equestria has never been, and will never be, a normal society. Magic runs rampant throughout the streets whilst cities float in the clouds. But, in some parts of the world, magic and the unnatural flourish more than usual. An example of one of these places is Hooferville, which has been a rift from this world to the next ever since Starswirl the Bearded opened it and gifted Equestria with even more magical power than the land already possessed. This has also made it a popular place for the supernatural to be appearing. Angels, demons, and ethereal beings come through this rift sometimes and dwell among the residents. As of late, there has been a string of disappearances of young fillies and stallions who do not have their cutie marks. This is where your story begins.
In this roleplay, conflict will be stat-based. You will roll a D20 four times (If it lands on anything less than eight, disregard that number and roll again.). Then, you may put those four numbers in the desired stats. This is a major part of character creation. The stats you must put your four results in are:

(This stat determines how much other characters like you. This will be used in non-violent situations to persuade a character one way or to avoid any sort of conflict with the character.)

(Wisdom affects your character's knowledge about the world around them, this is also a key part of avoiding conflict. This will also determine the effectiveness of your spells in general.)

#Ask/invite #Canon: Trotswood #Semi-serious #OOC #Unicorn Master Race

Hello, and welcome to the Trotswood RP. Now, we are an Ask/Invite RP, meaning we need one thing from you, before you RP in the thread. All we need, is a short (Or long if you want), application. Now, we don’t need anything to extensive. Just Blood type, history of medical procedures, three signed letters of recommendation, and the head of Crawmerax a brief history, including any combat, skills, how they found the town, and anything else you’d like to include.

Please, we don’t mind if you use sign up sheets from other canons, but we don’t use stats, so please leave them off. Here in Trotswood, if you want combat, we suggest you talk with the one you’re fighting about what system to use. Some of us like rolls, others like honor systems, and some of us like stat based. Talk about it before you fight, to prevent an unhappy mix up.

Now, as for applications, we’ve gone over what we need, but there are a few extra guidelines. Just some basic, common sense and canon specific rules that will help us streamline the application process, and get you approved faster.

>No Humans (We’re “Show Canon” in that way. Please keep to races found in the show. However, Hybrids of show races are welcome in many cases.)
>Direct crossovers are discouraged. However, if the application sheet seems solid, there is a chance you’ll be passed, and approved.
>Please be proper with your power. We’re not going to reject you, if you’re a god, provided you’re not “Supergod The Bes Around”.

And that’s it. Once you have an application, long or short, simply post it in this thread, and the OP, and a team of “Half OPs”.

It has been one week since the capital city fell into a bloody ruin. Both Princess Celestia and Luna have been slain, and many others seem to be falling close behind. Neither Princess Twilight nor Shining Armor have seen Princess Cadence since the madness began, and if the rumors are anything to go by, she may very well be as dead as the two rulers of Equestria. With the sun unable to rise, the moon unable to set, and Canterlot left with no magic barrier to protect it's denizens, madness and the strange new chaos quickly began to spread to other parts of the world. Towns quickly became over run by unimaginable monsters, unlike anything anyone has ever seen. Creatures of all shapes and sizes now run rampant in the streets, doing as they please-whether it be murdering any poor soul who happens across their path, or finding simple joy in bringing buildings and hospitals to the ground.

Nopony seems to know how or where it all started, or even what exactly it is that is going on. Many theories have naturally begun to spring up amongst the peaceful ponies, some pointing to alien invasion, some to the end times, while others believe it is a dark magic, one much older and more powerful than even the elements of harmony. Not enough time has passed to prove anything, and while some ponies fight to figure out just what it is that has taken over their peaceful world, others fight merely to survive.

You, the unfortunate lost soul in this new wasteland, have suddenly found yourself dropped into a haven turned hell. Monsters of varying shapes, sizes, and intelligence run rampant and lurk every dark alley you turn down. The world around you seems to consist of mere flames, ash, and crumbled remains of a once peaceful and brilliant society. Where you will go, and what you will do in this new wasteland is all up to chance, and the power of your own mind.

The Orion Space Station is the most recent arm of the Equestrian Military to combat the ever-growing Rift threat. While its responsibilities have grown in recent years to include space-based defenses and even first contact with alien races, Orion's main purpose still remains.

#Canon: Northern Kingdom #Adventure #Violence #Ponies #Serious #Sign-up

The Story

Equestria was nearly in turmoil when two ponies took up the task to become heralds so that they may find a just ruler for their nation. The reason for this was because the Alicorn race was extincted about 4,000 years ago. But how did Equestria suffer such a heavy loss? In Princess Twilight's she was the last Alicorn. The others died peacefully in their prosperous rule and no other pony became an Alicorn, leaving Twilight to be the sole monarch. She however grew with old age and her last years Equestria was under siege by a powerful foe. It started during the Summer Sun Celebration when suddenly the southern border was attacked by the dragons. The military was caught off guard and lost most of the southern territory. A desperate draft was called and all able bodied ponies were either called to farm since a lot of agricultural towns were lost, or were made part of a special army called Redemption. Its sole purpose was to attack and defend against dragons and it became the largest army in Equestrian history. You have been drafted and trained by Redemption and you will take part in series of events that started the Northern Kingdom rp.

Special Notes

Weaponry that you are allowed to use swords, bows, crossbows, things of that nature. You are allowed to use firearms but this is limited to muskets and flintlock pistols.

You are allowed to pick any race from the show (even a dragon but you have to be on the pony's side) except for Alicorns.

The rp is a mix of Honor's system and battle system. Everything is Honor's but whenever a battle has started, you have to roll a 1d10 when attacking an enemy. Rolling an even number would mean success, odds will mean failure.

4,000 years have passed since the Alicorns ruled Equestria and now without them the nation slowly degraded with lawlessness. The most influential ponies had gathered to decide upon a solution to restore the monarchy and bring peace to Equestria once again. Months of debate and arguing as to whom shall receive such a power until finally they somewhat found an answer to their problem. It was discovered in ancient texts that were brought over when Equestria. It was stated that the Heralds shall travel back to the frozen land to seek enlightenment of great magnitude and will return back and it would be made clear as to who will rule the land. News of this spread so mercenaries, knights, any who had a sense of adventure had made the trek up north but were never to be heard from again. All of Equestria had begun to lose hope and the number of those who tried this legend dwindled as time passed until barely any traveled north. Now you have decided to test your luck and make the journey to the Northern Kingdom.


The rp will follow the honors system so be realistic when it comes to combat and things of that nature. Speaking of combat no one will have to worry about being killed and no longer being able to continue but you will encounter extremely dangerous situation. I would also like to note that pvp isn't recommended but is still allowed, remember everyone here will be working towards the same goal so it would be easier to work together. Also I'll do my best to make sure that everyone who signs up for this will have the chance to interact with the story.

Life is hard and then you die. That's just the way it is. You wake up, you go to your shitty job, you come back to your shitty apartment, you eat your shitty processed dinner, you watch your shitty corporate TV, and then you go back to bed again. Rinse and repeat. The corporations control your life, the government controls your money, and those are controlled by groups you don't even have a name for. You're one of the little people—the nobodies, the downtrodden, the ninety-nine percent; and this is the rest of your life. You will be lonely. You will be miserable. You will wake up every morning and ride the bus to a factory job where you are shouted at by a fat unicorn who makes more in a week than you do in a year. You will spend your entire life trying not to breathe in the city smog, and you will spend your few quiet moments hoping you didn't get noticed by someone important. When you're thirty, you'll lose your leg in an accident and get a cheap augment to replace it. You will spend every minute of your life wishing you were dead; and when it finally happens, you probably won't even see it coming.

But it doesn't have to be that way.

You can break the chains. You can master your own destiny. You can get the fame, the money, the power, the glory—you can hold the entire world in your hooves, and hear it scream your name.

All you have to do is become a criminal.

The unexplored territory of Celestia and Luna managing a shadowy organization that is slowly encroaching on the entire world. As it, possibly, moves forward it purports to bring freedom and love to each of the countries it conquers. The organization would not overtly do this but moves through secretive channels as it plays a game of chess with its own constituents. The question is, what stakes are the princesses playing for and why?

An introspective look into the life of a pony consumed by his own inner demons, as he moves around Equestria chasing a dream that died long ago. What sort of pony would give up his dreams and ambitions to search for some undefined thing? What does his Cutie mark mean? and why is he constantly followed by waves of destruction?

Dogged by the government that wants to hunt him down and stick his head on pointy stick, Louis Expy the Sixteenth abdicates the throne of Prance to revolutionaries. He seeks asylum with Princess Celestia, who cannot refuse due to a royal precedent. She now has to deflect the dastardly plots of the revolutionaries as they jockey for the privilege of being the one to liberate Louis head from his shoulders and try to keep the king of a nation whose prior life consisted of the decadence normally found only in wet dreams in Canterlot castle without letting the media screw her over.

Short Bio Summary: Jacob one day decided to explore ancient catacombs and dusty temples to obtain priceless artifacts that he would sell to make a living. He did this for a year or so and was pretty happy with his life. He happened upon an orb on one of his explorations of a temple that had been long abandoned. He unwittingly reached out for it and suddenly he felt strange once he touched and suddenly it felt as if the room was spiraling around him. He now awakens inside this black box not knowing where he is.
Personality: Somewhat brave and adventurous he is determined to have a nice life but he sometimes feel it is purposeless since it only benefits himself. He is often resourceful and is always willing to help out a friend.

Before the time of the Celestial rulers, there were the Clockwork rulers. One sister who ruled the old age, and one sister who rang in the new one. Times were different, everything ran on a powerful artifact entitled the Clockwork Mechanism. This linked all the bits and bobs in this land together, and the artifact is now only held in The Kingdom of Clockhooves. A town not belonging to the old age or the new one, a town of innovation and culture. But you, having to live there, noticed some odd things going on in town. Curious, you decide to investigate. This is where your story begins.

Welcome to Clockhooves! If you want to join, please create a character with the template below. Be sure to give me contact information, as since I need to assign your character a role in the story that will allow them to do one special action per an act.
