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.

#Ask/invite #Canon: From the Beginning #Serious #Sign-up

For every story has a beginning.

But knowledge does not spread so fast, and what was written down to be kept forever could be lost or destroyed, leaving the mind to forget it's origin and wander through the world, only able to look at what's close behind it and what could wait up ahead. This was how we were forced to live, having traditions as our only source to vaguely summarize where we came from. This was, until one became determined to find the truth.

For years, this pony has secluded himself to libraries, traveling across Equestria while almost never saying a word to any pony. One who would watch him pass by a town would always remember him for the determination in his eyes and, more-so-than-the-first, the odor that followed him. It was a long time that he spent, trying to find the answers as to how Equestria came to be, and all his years of research has lead him to a frozen wasteland far far away from home.

He fought the bitter cold for over a month. The stallion's food was starting to run out, and no sign of any vegetation would be around; not for miles to come. His faith in finding what he was looking for was beginning to fade, and it seemed like he would have to return to the warmer climates in Equestria. He fell to the snow covered ground, feeling lost and defeated by all the years he spent, only to find that it might have been a mistake after all. But as if the shining grace of Celestia came to show him the way, he would look up, seeing what his heart desired: an old ruined archive, lost to all forms of life until this very day. He rushed inside, seeking refuge from the cold and finding good shelter, something he hasn't been able to enjoy for a while now. Looking around, he saw the vast array of books and scrolls. Many were ruined. He had no idea where to begin. Out of all the books, the one that caught his eye first would be found on a table, set up on a small podium at the other end of what was

#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”.

#Open #Ask/invite #Series: Strange Encounters #Adventure #Violence #Ponies #Non-pony #Semi-serious #Sign-up

I'm thinking of creating a thread called Strange Encounters. The basic summary-
Equestria, the noble country ruled by the four alicorns- Princess Celestia, Princess Luna, Princess Cadence, and Princess Twilight- has fallen. The land is roamed by creatures of chaos both day and night, and the population of all pony races alike diminishes faster every moment. Trains made of bones, a gloomy overcast over all of Equestria. Most Earth Ponies became slaves to the dark powers, Unicorns met the same fate with chopped off horns, and pegasai the same, wingless.Some are slaves, a meal, or merely entertainment. But what about Equestria's saviors? The Elements of Harmony? The princesses? Princess Celestia and Princess Luna as well as the elements of harmony are no where to be found, and Princess Cadence was publicly executed by the new leader of this dark age. All hope was lost- until one pony found something that could save Equestria- a reverse time spell.Like the one that Twilight used, but lasts much longer...with the possibility of being trapped in the past. That way, they could go back in time and stop the event that started the spiraling downfall of their peaceful and harmonious nation. They could save princess Cadence from death. They could bring salvation to...everything. There's only one problem- nobody knows exactly what that event is. And this pony can't do it alone. She'll need some ponies, people, creatures of any race to help her figure out what exactly happened...and how to save Equestria from becoming a land of darkness, ruled by power- hungry creatures who want nothing more than to keep themselves in the position of power. Even when they get to the past- something's wrong- everypony seems to be hiding

So it's late at night, but this is usually when I get the idea to say what ideas I've built up over the while!

I have this idea for a story based RP. It's set back when the three races of ponies are united and it revolves around the struggles of society reforming itself to fit the wants and needs of a new order of ponies of different races trying to live together in harmony in the new found Equestria.

Does anyone have any thoughts on this? Has this already been done?

It's really just an idea right now, but I want to know if anyone would also be interested in this idea.

#Open #Dark #Violence #Semi-serious #Character #General-Specialized #Grimdark/Horror

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.

Hey, Dashy. Whenever you get around to this, you think you could give me some sort of an idea for an itinerary for what you guys are doing after the con? Simply because there is advance tickets for my bus trip a week before departure. Thing is if I wait too long the prices will double if I wait inside a week before leaving.

Also, I will do my best to try and find some way to use different buss lines to try and get me back up home instead of Greyhound which I'm taking in, so I'll try to alleviate the travel distance.

You know, we still don't know what's at the bottom of our own, actual oceans.

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.

I was hoping to create a new rp thread and I wanted some feedback to see if anyone would be interested. The idea of this thread will be a mix of slice of life and dungeon crawl. The players would be set in a specific town where they would interact with other players and npc's. They'd also traverse a mysterious demonic world, battling monsters, work as a team, and learn the purpose of this other world.

On November 25th 1997, Titanium Charge, an earth pony, was born in Las Pegasus, Equestria. He was born with a copper colored mane and tail, and a silver colored coat of fur with gold-topaz colored eyes. His mother, Shock Charge, started breathing differently. She then fell a victim of cardiac arrest after his birth, and died shortly after. His father, Static Charge, didn’t attend his birth, for he was out taking care of business doing whatever it is he did.

Titanium was taken in by his Uncle and Mother’s Brother, Metal Thunder, and raised. Not knowing his parents, he took on the name Titanium Thunder. By the time he was 8 years old, a group of marauders, trying to find Titanium’s father, broke into his Uncle’s home and began murdering. Apparently, Titanium’s father had screwed someone over, and now they were out to kill him. If not him, they’d kill his family. They killed Titanium’s Uncle, Aunt, and his two cousins, as they looked for him. Once they did find him, they dragged him outside, threw him into their vehicle, and drove out into the middle of nowhere. Once they were a safe distance from local authorities, they began yelling and demanding from him “TELL US WHERE HE IS!” They shouted at him. His eyes filled with tears of fear. “I-I don’t know w-what you’re t-talking about!” he spoke timidly, being too afraid to speak out. “He’s lying.” said one of the bandits. After a few attempts of asking “nicely,” and not getting what they wanted, they began beating him. They kicked him again and again and again, and shook him violently when he tried to fall unconscious. “Tell us where he is or we’ll kill you, you pathetic piece of trash!” One of the stallions pulled out a small knife and slashed downward on Titanium’s left eye, causing him to go blind in it. He screamed and whaled. “I DON’T KNOW! P-Please stop hurting me!” He cried continuously. The marauders never got an answer, so they hopped back in their vehicle, and left the bruised, broken, and bleeding colt to die alone.

Well, to see what you would like, I'd try and look in around in /rp/. The Donut Bar is open, so they'll take any characters and will be more than glad to rp with you. AOS is the canon that I help run. We're ask/invite, but that's just to keep the obviously ridiculous characters out. You'd be fine signing up there. Orion has higher standards than your usual rp for the most part. You really only need a good reason for going to space if you wanna rp there.

There are also other threads. You just have to look around and see what you'd like.

Welcome, to the General OOC!

>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.

'The Ascended', a cult of unknown size and influence, founded by the megalomaniac and recently deceased Unicorn Richard Tapster, found themselves without a leader after the events taking place during and after the demon Umbrunox' attempted rise to power over Equestria. With their 'Father' killed, the cult found itself without leadership and in danger of falling apart, until Tonic's second in command, the mentally somewhat more stable but no less ruthless and dangerous First Disciple Loveless, was successful in his search for a spell to drag his master's soul back from what lies beyond and bind it to a phylactery, thus resurrecting Tonic as something far worse than what he had been before ???? a undead abomination of frightening strength and malice.

Little to nothing is known about what happened after The Ascended managed to bring Tonic back into the world of the living. Located in the farthest south of Equestria, it took several weeks for the dire news to at least partially make it to Canterlot. What exactly was going on in the warmer regions of the continent, no one was able to say. Reports were hazy, but all of them carried the same unsettling message ???? the Dead were rising. Whole districts had been devastated and small towns had been wiped empty over night with either no survivors or no trace of their denizens at all, and it is up to a group of willing and able heroes, led by a champion graced with the light of Celestia herself, to investigate the threat from the south and rid the land of the evil spirit who haunts it.


I am well aware that many players prefer chill slice-of-life scenarios for their players, which is why I have decided to, with the exception of the prologue, have the arc take place far away from Ponyville. The villain is not coming to anyone's doorstep, but the heroes will have to travel south to seek him out themselves. That way players who don't want to be part of this series can have their characters stay home without even knowing that anything is going on. This means that after the group has left town, the arc will be handled as closed. It simply does

I need [9] people for a game.
You will participate in the [Nonary Game]
This is a game of life or death, of puzzles, and of choice.
If you are suited for the [Nonary Game] You will be chosen.

The [Nonary Game] Will test your limits, it will test your character, your intelligence and everything about you. You may die, you may live, but it is not your choice. All things have been predetermined, all choices have been made for you. But this does not mean you cannot change this; It us up to you to make the right choices, to live, to die, and to seek out your own goals. Ultimately you will either win or lose.

The call will end in [9] days, or when [9] people are chosen.

Good luck.

A jocky unicorn? Is that even a thing? Fuck yeah it is. While most unicorns have strong minds rather than strong bodies... well, Wallop does have a strong mind, stronger levitation abilities than standard magic by a standard unicorn. Special talent in telekinesis like his brother, Finely Tuned. A light blue unicorn, not as educated as his brother.
