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?

Would everyone here be willing to take a short essay. It's to find out more about personal opinions in rp and other topics like that. I'll be checking responses all throughout the week so feel free to take it whenever you're bored or have time to. Thank you.

#Open #Canon: 6A #Adventure #Chill #Dark #Violence #FiM-only #Semi-serious #Sign-up #Character #Cyberpunk

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.
Q: So what is this?

Well guys, I'm leaving, for realsies. And I realize that making a big ol' post is just the worst sort of attention whoring about it, but it gives it a certain authenticity, ya feel?

Anyway, my reasons for leaving are quite a few. It ranges from scheduling issues to an increasing dislike of the game itself, to some more selfish and personal reasons. But I do want to make a few shoutouts and apologies, if it'll change anything.
- Love ya David and Yuppie, we did some great work, I think. Perhaps misguided work, but the labour put in is undeniable.
- Hell, I love you all in some way. Even you, Canis. I think you've improved greatly the past few months, as a person and as a writer.
- I'm sorry for alienating the rest of the group with long posting, and actively avoiding the purpose of 6A. I can only say that it was incorrect of me, and that I am sorry.
- I'm sorry for being disrespectful and rude towards Harry and his careful work.

But here's to more 6A, for those who are still willing and able! This has been great, and I only mildly regret all the time I've spent. And, shit, I'll still be on Steam and Skype and all that jazz, so it's not like I'm going away into the vacuum of space. Friendships count for a lot, even over a horse game.

#Fresh start #Adventure #Violence #Serious #Sign-up

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.

Reason (basically why does your character want to be a Herald. Is it fame, money, a sense of responsibility, etc.)

Space. The final frontier. Since the dawn of time, Ponies have looked up towards Celestia's crystal clear skies, and Luna's dark, sparkling oceans of beauty and wondered, 'what's up the-'
You know, we still don't know what's at the bottom of our own, actual oceans.
Well, aren't you a buzzkill. I'm trying to do a recruitment ad here.
It would help if you weren't cheesy as all hell about it.
Maybe you should do it, then, if you think you're better at it than me!

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.

Tired of normal military life? Want a little extra excitement in fighting interdimensional beasts? Or maybe just want to come up and see Equestria's Space Station for yourself? Sign up for Orion today!

Hmm... I think I'll start off by giving you a second approval. I didn't realize you'd gone this long with just one.

But our RPs are held on this site's /rp/ board, which you can find a link to up on the top of the page. In there, you'll find the Orion's IC thread. That's where our RPs go.
That's a link directly to our current thread. Also, it'd probably help if you were part of our Skype group, since that's where we end up planning/setting up interactions. I'll go ahead and add you here in just a second.

Thank god I had the tab open

Now I do remember there being a Fallout Type RP about a year or two ago so I think it might be time for another. This won't really be biased on the fan fic as much as just the idea of ponies in a post apocalyptic Equestria about 50 years after there was a nuclear war between ponies and zebras that had just pushed the entire world into hell. As hellish as that sounds I do not want to have to have this be a thread where it's all serious and long post, no, I want this to be a canon where people can have fun with it mostly. So no super long stat chart, skills, or other abilities that you need to account for. Though there will be a few things you will need to keep tract of here and there that'll hopefully not be too much for everyone.

Now keep in mind this is my first time actually making a canon and I will understand if no one wants to deal with someone with the lack of experience but, I'm aiming this to be a canon not ran but just one, but by everyone who feels the want to add a story line to this thread. I will also have a few friends help me out here and there, and I will of course try my best to help get things straight.

The main character (main characters being the one you are going to play if you decided to join this RP) are all going to start in a Stable (Vault) and will be, for some odd reason, forced out into the harshness of the wasteland and either work together to survive every day or decide to fend for them selves and disregard their fellow stable brothers. keep in mind that everyone in a stable knows everyone and has know everyone since birth/when they first entered the stable before the bombs actually fell. So you're going to have account for that when making a character, so know that they will know other characters closely as well. Unless you're going to play and antisocial ninny. Which works too.

The Stable is a 5 level underground bunker under the Applewood mountain in Los Pegasus fit to hold about 250 ponies with supplies for all those ponies for 60 years. The bottom level being where the generators, air filters, water filters, and so on are. 4th and 3rd floor is w

#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”.

Hello and welcome to /ooc/!

This sticky serves as an introduction as well as a place for The Canon Compendium

Out of character (OOC) roleplay discussion is meant to belong here. That means roleplay organising, recruitment, and general ooc threads for specific roleplays on /rp/. It can also be used for character building/critique and brainstorming for locations, and various other roleplay related necessities, such as general writing for rp technique.

Please keep general chatter threads in /chat/, and actual roleplaying threads in /rp/.If anyone asks you (even anonymously) to move the roleplay to the roleplay thread, please do. Spontaneous roleplay, such as that often found in current OOC threads, will be allowed here, but please do try to keep as much as you can in the correct board.

If you are interested in learning about roleplaying, we have prepared some advice guides which can be found below, and are happy to help you get into the groove of things and help you understand what makes a "good" roleplayer. Various help documents will be linked here for you to read. Looking over them is not required for you to get help in here, but would make our jobs much easier and make your learning experience much smoother.

Well, it looks interesting. Here's my sheet:
Name: Wrex
Race: Bat Pony
Backstory: Him and his large family were hated wherever they went, mainly because they drink blood. They were accepted into Luna's gaurd, but Wrex hated it. He flew away, and decided to seek fame. He became a treasure hunter, and a succesful one at that. The only problem was the fame part. Numerous rales sprung up about the vampire treasure hunter, and ponies grew afraid of old ruins and temples. This meaning less competition, Wrex went with it. He sticks to the shadows and wears a dark cloak. Wrex can also fly moderately fast.
Personality: He doesn't talk to people if he doesn't have to. He also needs blood of any type to survive. He's always up for an adventure.
Description: Wrex is dark grey with dark purple hair. His cutie mark is a gold crown.
Element: Dark

>Begin one time intro

First of all, hello again and hello for the first time to those who have never seen this thread before. I once made a promise that I wouldn't let this thread die. A promise I promptly turned around and didn't keep. I said that every day I would come here and post a new question or idea to keep things going. I was foolish to push for the change that I did. It resulted in some damage that can never be undone, I know this. And for that, I am sorry. I hope that with this I can start taking the first steps to maybe repairing some of what I did. Without further ado, let's move on to the meat of the thread.

#Open #Ask/invite #Canon: TECC #Fresh start #Adventure #Chill #Lighthearted #FiM-only #Normal

Hello hello!

This is the official OOC and Sign Up thread for "The Emerald City Chronicles" or "TECC" for short. This is something a couple of fantastic individuals and I have been brewing up behind the scenes for quite some time now, and I'm very proud to announce it and get it out into Ponychan for the general public.

What is TECC about?
The Emerald City Chronicles is what I like to call a "What if" scenario. While many other canons deal with drastic changes to the story, such as Zombies, No Mane 6, or even the Mane 6's defeat, TECC deals with subtle tweaks instead. The basis of the canon was founded on a group of people wishing to get out of the Ponyville setting more, so we threw the center of the world on a liberal metropolis, Seaddle, based on the real life Seattle, Washington, of course, already giving us that wonderful 'fresh start' feeling of breaking away from the norm.

So, since we changed that history, we figured, why not base the entire canon on such freedoms? They say there's an infinite number of parallel universes out there with an infinite number of possible outcomes, and this is one of them for ponies. For starters, the apple family now runs a chain of successful Cider Cafes renown throughout the city. But that's just the tip of the iceberg. You can take any canon character and tweak their history or experiences into any way you like. You can be fast talking, auctioneer Big Mac, DJ. Octavia, Rule 63 Lyra, whatever you want! We wanted to deliver a canon that expanded on creative liberties while staying withing the theme and world the show has given us.

On that note, the races involved are what we call "Show Plausible.
