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?

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.

Remember everyone, you're here forever~

Keep things civil. Arguing is allowed, but if it devolves to name calling it might be time to stop.
Be constructive and don't be an ass.
Have fun! No really, that's a rule. Not having fun will result in an injection of Pinkie juice.
Keep things PG-13 please. I'm sure we'll deviate from time to time, but let's try to not make people uncomfortable. Of course don't break site rules ever, duh.
No casual rping
No off topic chatting
This thread holds no ties to any one canon, discussion of all is allowed and encouraged. Want to signal boost your new canon? Go for it!

#Open #Canon: Dark Moon #Series: The Outpost #Dark #Violence #General #Power Limit #Semi-serious #Sign-up

Greetings Ponychan! This is a side-thread of the Dark Moon canon from MLPchan, open to a new audience! More specifically, this is the Dark Moon OOC, the Corporate Cafeteria! Dark Moon is a cyberpunk canon set after the Corporate War and the collapse of the Equestrian Government. The Princesses are gone, and the Elements of Harmony have been missing for almost twenty years. A surge of mysterious technology from another world jumpstarted Equestria's development of science and technology, but it came at a cost. The world has changed, and magic is slipping away. In the chaos, a number of powerful, multinational corporations sprang up to take control of the chaotic world, only to throw it into chaos again with the Corporate War. Almost ten years later, the stage of the world is set for conflict once again...

If you want to do a more established signup, this thread is here for you! Discuss characters with the managers, ask questions about the lore (Trust me, we know way more about it than the Lore Doc can tell you and can probably explain it more succintly) and just generally chat about things. Any questions can be posed here, to either myself (Nevermore), or to the sub-managers (Cyan Hide, Ace_Noir, and Conch Shell).

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.

Hello! Welcome. I'll be willing to point you to some canons that'll peak your interests.

Pretty much around here you just need to look for an rp that you would enjoy to be in, but there are some you need to sign up for in an OOC, so it would be good if you checked /ooc/ as well.

#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.

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!

For many young Crusaders, this is the highlight of the year, a chance to meet new friends and spent a few nights in a massive tent-village in the Everfree Forest!

#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”.

Sure, that'd be fine. There are radios around Trotswood, and all that kind of stuff.
