The Roleplay Announcement Thread Quinch!Boots.nYBo 11949Sticky[View][Last 50 Posts]

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 personality into your announcement, but don't overdo it either.

The notices don't necessarily have exclusively to do with matchmaking either - for example;
Does anyone happen to have a saved copy of the "Outhouse Trouble" thread from about three weeks ago? If

#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?
A: To help organize our threads, we have tags we use to clearly state what we would like to see in the thread. While most tags are self-explanatory, they all have explanations embedded on them, so if you click the "Show/hide" button in the post form (the place where you post threads from), you'll see the options for tags, and if you hover over one of them, you'll see a quick description of each one! Some, like "Serious" or "Semi-serious", are actually not what you would expect!

Q: What is "/croop/"? Is this a hidden board?
A: "/croop/" is a portmanteau word; a combination of /rp/ and /ooc/, it's generally used in reference to our community, because normally each board is a single community, but in our case the entire category "Roleplay" is a single community.

Q: What does "ooc" mean?
A: It means "Out of Character"; do not confuse it with "OC" (Original Character)

Q: So what's an "original character"?
A: An "original character" usually refers to p

Fallout Wasteland Stories Sign Up Redux Critical Hit 463790[View][Last 50 Posts]

Finally after a good few months of planning and waiting, this thread is coming back with a new and revised structure. This rp is based on the player and their choices and actions for everyday life. Some people can become heroic adventurers, sadistic villains, or hardy traders it's all up to you. It runs on no set story and instead runs on simple exploration and questing. It also holds the idea of wish fulfillment for those who want to do something specific or set a goal to achieve.

With that said that said, there a few documents that you should go over so you can familiarize yourself with this thread's rules.

A New Kingdom and A Call To Arms Crimson Rose Night 464741[View]

Once a dream, one that came true. One alicorns dream to create a place where every pony is welcome from all walks of life, even the Changelings who caused a the Canterlot Crisis so many years ago has seen reality. But his newly found kingdom is slowly breaking apart. Bandits, thieves, murders, and wild beasts plague the streets in the land that was once beautiful but is now only trashed and crippled. So now the Prince of Shadows needs your help. You will solve crimes, fight beasts and even help fend off the occasional invaders in the crippled city of Demoria, The Kingdom of Shadows. And in the end it will be you who determine the fate of the city, whether it will flourish once again or if it will become a nightmare for all who live there. Will you be a savior or become corrupt?

Players will be allowed to venture out into the city and interact with the civilians for various tasks or just to befriend them. They will also have to solve puzzles and piece together crimes and even fight creatures of fantasy and fiction and witness things that were only in stories told to little fillies. On the down time when the Prince (GM) is not present any one can mingle and talk. Times when he will be present will be posted at a later date. Until then, if some pony wants to talk they may do so. The first scenario will only begin once three brave and strong hearts have stepped forward to begin their new lives.

Everypony wanting to join the ranks of the elite team will find themselves in the main hall will a flier with the Call to Arms ad on it. And on the flier is a warning, "Bewarned you will be tested and this test is not for the fient of heart. The test will push you and try to kill you. But if you can succeed you will become one of the best worriors the land has ever seen."

If you have any questions email me at andysherrill95@yahoo.com. Thank you for reading and I hope to kick this RP off right. Speak to you soon. -CRN

#Scattered Shards #Invite Only #OOC #Non-pony

We're merged with Ponychan now! Feels strange to be back where it all began, but I digress.

This is the OOC Thread for Scattered Shards and it's related brand products, whatever that may entail.

If you're not part of the canon, but still wanna hang out anyway, feel free to! We only ask that you exercise a little common sense in regards to your fellow roleplayers. Don't be a dick, but have a little thick skin, lest the shitposting consume you.

Though you DO have to follow the site rules. Nobody can roleplay if they've been banned.

If you have any questions, but none of us are around to answer them, check out the wiki pages!

Guess I should pop my head in here.

I don't really have a name to go by as of yet. So forgive the anonness.

My likes? Uh... I like fun flowing stories that aren't laid out ahead of time. Stories that can get dark and sad but also fun and silly.
I like following show canon as much as possible.
I enjoy romance and adventure and action and all that jazz.

I dislike... uh... planned rps? I guess. Like stuff where you decide ahead of time that like X and Y are going to happen at set times? I dislike throwing showcanon to the sideline for no good reason. I dislike poorly thought out characters that don't fit into the show.

Not sure what else there is to say about me!

Do you guys thing this is a decent concept?

That's then, this is now. So, carrying right along. Disregarding the content itself, the best way to start up and RP group is to bring a few friends who are interested PRIOR to posting the OOC thread. An active community--even a small one--has potential to grow, while a dead community only has potential to start. Do you have any friends who'd be interested in this sort of thing? If not, then it might be a good idea to head to /rp/ and find another thread to join: that's a great way to meet new people, who might be interested in this kind of game. Case in point, yours truly.

So, a few other things you can do.
-Punctuate and capitalize your sentences properly. Good English is a turn-on for everyone on this board.
-Try and write a more descriptive OP that focuses on the rolls of the player characters within the thread. You really have to get people excited for these things.
-Describe more about the world, too! A good platform for a story is at least as good as a great GM.

If you need anything else, feel free to contact me at "ht_black01" on Skype, or at "H.T. Black" on Steam. Until then, good luck!

[S]: https://youtu.be/xixTiB6tJTM

Hey /ooc/. Been a while. A long while. No time for introductions though, gotta get to the point. A new place to play is what I'm talking about here. A new canon as it were, are they still called canons round these parts? Doesn't matter, I'm callin' it a canon.

An AU to the show, taking place in Manehatten. With Noir themes. I ain't thinking of a place for everyone to run around as a detective, no, just to be in that kind of world.

Rules would be simple, canon characters are first come first serve. You would have to say you want to play them in the OOC thread that would be made for it, get your name added to the list, simple as that. Inactivity with a canon character would get your name taken off the list. I would think characters like Celestia and what not should be off limits, but maybe not. Open to discussion.

Of course no overpowered OCs. Nothing close to Twilight's power of course, can't be faster than Dash, or stronger then AJ, you know, the usual. Other then that nothing comes to mind right off the bat about regulations.

Edit: One more thing, no humans or non FIM things.

Making Some Open Threads Princess Dan Ella Enchanted!.fNJV2Jlhw 461910[View]

Hello everyone! I would like some help making some open threads for rp.

I've seen a lot of people saying for quite a while that the board seems very divided and not friendly to new people. While I somewhat agree-there has always been groups of friends that like to stick to their own circles-there are still plenty of us around that would love to see some new activity and get the chance to rp with some new friends. So I want to get a couple of new, open threads going. But I need your guys help. I'm not as active as I used to be, so when I rp, I can usually only do it for a couple hours.

What I would like to see with the new threads is many different styles-adventure, lighthearted, oatish/silly, relaxed, social, and maybe a couple serious threads (though keep in mind we have lots of those already.)

I think we should try to focus on having threads that don't require any one main dm, that are very, very welcome to all types of posters-whether they like more descriptive writing, or more fast paced short spurt type text lines, and that encourage people to branch out and play with people that they normally wouldn't have.

So if you have any ideas start posting them in this thread and maybe we can get a more friendly atmosphere started up on the board again.

Taking the jump is pretty hard, I get that dude, though if you never take a chance you could miss out on something that might end up being a lot of fun!

At worst what are people in /rp/ going to do? Ignore you, maybe? Nobody here I've seen will kick you down for stepping into a space that welcomes new people with regularity. And from what I know of /croop/ and player drought in general, your participation probably would make someone super stoked to have someone to RP with rather than anything else!

#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.

Name: Chang Tai
Alias: Rider

Race: Pegasus

Age: 26

History: Chang grew up in Thailand, not able to see his parents too much because they were working an insane amount of hours a week to get by. Chang himself worked as an apprentice for Tao Kung, a care taker for elephants who also specialized in the arts of Muay Thai. There he spent a lot of his childhood taking care of elephants and learning his master's fighting style. After Tao's death, however, Chang found that the area around him lost a lot of interest in riding elephants like himself, so he found that all the work he spent learning how to take care of elephants was losing it's worth. That was, until he got involved with a gang that had a specific use for both of his talents. The leader was a man who called himself "The Emperor". At first Chang thought the way he acted was really flashy, but he found that he was wrong. This man was completely flashy! He ran his gang in a way that was inspired by the old ways of Thailand, by riding an elephant wherever he went, which was were Chang became useful. Not only would he have to take care of all 3 of his elephants, but would also have to protect their legs from authority, rival gangs, or just angry women who get really angry at rich people. The work made him miserable, but it paid good at the time. This all came to an end however, when, you guessed it, someone actually brought guns to the Emperor's parade, shooting one of the elephant's legs and having it tumble straight on it's back...
After Chang saw that, he paid his honor's to his dead master, and used whatever money he could scramble to move to Equestria, because he found Thailand to be too small for him to get anywhere in life. Now he teaches the arts of Muay Thai to those who are willing to learn, and doing whatever he can to make it by.

Ah, Ponyville. Sweet Ponyville, how the nation doth adore the; thou art the shining gems in her crown, the second sun below, the cream of all the crops to come. May you forever sit the throne of the world.

There are very few things that WHEE can say about Ponyville that hasn't already been written a hundred times. It is, as a city, second in standing only to Canterlot: though it is only tenth largest in the nation, and has a mere two hundred thousand residents, it is now, and has been since the fourth age, the cultural capital of the entire kingdom. There's more landmarks in this place than we can list, so here's the top ten: The Daring-Do Museum of Fiction (Oldest specialty museum in Equestria), the Sweet Apple Acres home office, the Sepulcher of Heavenly Bodies, the Adidash Hoofwear Home Office and Museum (second oldest specialty museum in Equestria), The original Carousel Boutique, The Factoria DeLaMegasweet, The National Railway Grand Terminal, and we're bored of this list now. The point is it's a helluva town--and it was, until the first Onyx Age, one of the nicest towns in the world to live.

Then the entire city became half a warzone, when every pistol-packing pony with a bad attitude and a good eye realized it was bulging with juicy targets. When four different rolling firefights broke out in the city center in the same week--one for each cardinal direction, interestingly enough--the local government decided enough was enough. Now Ponyville is tightly regulated--boasting two separate CCTV networks, guard checkpoints on every street, and secret policemen every other apartment. Now that a second Onyx Age is starting up, they're kicking into high gear once again, with regular army deployments all throughout the town and riot police preemptively deployed. Avoid going loud here at all costs.

Fallout: WasteLand Stories Anonymous 458351[View][Last 50 Posts]

#Canon: Side Worth Fighting For #Adventure #Dark #Violence #Ponies #Serious #Sign-up #Special Characters

Welcome to the WasteLand Stories sign up thread, it is here where you can sign up to join the thread, or ask any questions that you may have. If you do have any questions about character creation or how the combat works just go on ahead and ask I will answer to the best of my abilities or you just need a trial run, I'll be happy to accommodate you. Now let's get into details about the thread.

This thread is based on the Fallout game series but has no ties what so ever with the Fallout Equestria Fanfics, instead this takes place in our own canon version of Equestria. This is to reduce any inconsistencies and not spoil any of the story for those currently reading them. Any similarities between the Fanfics and this thread is purely coincidental. Now this may sound crazy but this thread will not have any real story, but rather it will be about how we would live in the Equestrian Wasteland. With that said I'd like to focus on wish fulfillment for the players, massive exploration, and character development. Lastly if you want some lore on as to how this Equestria became a radiated hellhole then go an ahead and read the lore right here https://docs.google.com/document/d/17rVXDaCCs3fWg2vGumIIWFnACuJYgW9jAmDnKz2Xvts/pub

All that is required is the ability to type a dice roll. Everyone will be rolling d20's and for your attack to be successful you will have to roll an 11 or higher (basically 50/50). The reason for this is that just like the game you get a set of skills and the ability to use drugs to boost your overall efficiency (I'll discuss this further later on).

Character Creation
This is what you need to join;

Skills (Choose three, like small guns, science, speech, and things of that matter. All selected skills will have a plus 5 to their dice rolls)

W-what happened?

Heres what I made so far. Incomplete yet. I haven't added health because this is forum RPing but I considered tens or twenty points of health maximum with attacks ranging weapons and skills.

File: 1430183253637.jpg (1.17 MB, 2000x1250, London ruins.jpg)

Y'know, entirely off-topic to ponies, I've had ideas for a Fallout game set in the ruins on London. I've always wanted to make it an actual game since I've always been curious what the post-nuked world is like in Britain during the events of Fallout games.

Since I made up my own Fallout TTRP, maybe I can still do something about it.

Epic Mount!Hero.tYu2g 461908

File: 1430324136950.png (63.31 KB, 500x500, Epic Mount is sad.png)

Okay, so I talked to my friend who is way more experianced with TTRPs than I am and basically I have the wrong concept of it all.

There are two ways common TTRPs are done. the American way which is considered more tradition and the German way which most video games take into account.

The American classic way is the lower the stat means the higher the roll is best.

But in Germany the lower number is considered best over the higher number which is used in their rating system and why they prefer higher stats to play with. A good example is The Dark Eye series (TDE, German: Das Schwarze Auge (DSA)).

I wanted to have higher stats for higher rolls. But no matter how much I would like that, it's just illogical.

So in short my rolls may seem better compared to my fight with Night stalkers, but since my method only works with the german way, well Epic was not fast enough and evne if he was the mechanism wouldn't work.

The D:E canon is dead. I've finally come to terms with that. Every character arc had been completed, and then some, and everything had utterly collapsed all over itself.

That's why it's time to start over again.

We wipe everything. Memories, experiences, the whole shebang. Wash it out, scrub it clean. All the messes a lot of us made and scars a lot of us carved that made things irreparable, whether on a character scale or otherwise? G-O-N-E. This is where we're going to form new relationships, develop new memories.

i.e. This is where we try to make something of this board again, this time without all the tripping up we did the first time.

It's better than nothing, at least.

Well, there's nothing wrong with that. It'd certainly be nice to get some of the old faces back to make the place more welcoming, since this place doesn't even feel the same

Having back two of the more famous faces of the old crew would always be good, even if no one would recognize them.

I'm not sure I wanna be recognized, really, although it might be too late for that already.

I have skimmed through this thread a bit, and one thing in particular I agree with - 'Destination Equestria' is...tainted, I should say? I don't know if that's the right word, but to me the thought of it, rebott/fresh start or not, feels like wearing an older sibling's old clothes...if that makes sense? Its stories are told (or abandoned), and trying to revive it would play out exactly like you'd imagine it from the movies. It shambles about and makes noises, bit what made it the thing it was is long gone. My time here has left me with fond memories, but no matter how much I want to relive those days sometimes, they're just that - memories, and that's what they should stay.

Now then...before I get even MORE melodramatic...Open Equestria seems like a neat place to do things...I might check it out!

Who knows how it'll turn out. All I know is that I probably won't be on this site long. This place just doesn't feel right any more, and I've run out of reasons to stay. Not much else to keep my attention, I suppose.

Plus, I was never really a big player in D:E. I had to struggle just to get an interaction when I first gave it a try. So, the canon not having me certainly won't be a big deal

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.

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.

Greetings my colleagues, and anyone else who may read this. I am not going to pretend that I am a staple of this site, or known to a great number of those who frequent it. I have festered here for a long while without posting. Simply observing the Board for any interesting activity. I do not know why I decided to post this, but my hands strayed to the keyboard and my mind idly wondered why I have Ponychan featured prominently in my bookmarks.

I am Doctor Whooves. I began my tenure here while /oat/ was still supportive of random RP threads and the fanciful stories which they spawned. I was drawn to this fertile environment and wanted desperately to become a part of it. So I took my first tentative steps into /oat/ and Ponychan as a whole. I slowly developed my influence and recognition among the board and chose the good Doctor as my avatar. The community here was beautiful and I felt thrilled to be a part of it, to have a hand in shaping the landscape of it. Soon though roleplay on Oat was outlawed so that it could remain on topic for more than a single post. The decision, while not inherently bad, took away some of the manic energy that drove /oat/ along. However I was accepted into a group called AOS for my apparent talent at playing Whooves.

AOS was vibrant, filled with strange persons sharing experience together and struggling to create a cohesive, meaningful story. I played with them constantly, throwing myself into the stories and interaction with vivacity. The storylines may have made little sense, have been badly written, or were flawed in any number of ways, yet that was trumped by the simple joy each one of us put into our writing. The joy began to evaporate, and with it gone every flaw we had was thrown into stark relief. We bickered among ourselves and tore each other’s self-confidence away. Gradually I stopped putting effort into my posts, simply scribbling onto a page and damn anyone who criticizes it. Bitterness tainted my words and I closed my eyes to the problems around me. I left.

I was invited to join a branch of AOS called Orion and I thought that this time I could make better choices and that I would never let this strand of hope die. I tried, I tried, I tried, and I failed. Orion went to the same dogs as the rest of the groups I joined while I watched. I did attempt to save it again then but it was too little, too late.

So I wondered if it was I that kept changing, that kept destroying the

A big reason why /rp/ and /ooc/ are so quiet is because we're so, well, fragmented. We need a place for our isolated selves to mingle, and that place is here.

I look for innovation to make things run a little more smoothly; FAQ was just a step up from the consistent posting to answer questions that seemed to pop up a lot.

State of the board Vausten 457747[View]

So, who's left here on /rp/? I may just make another thread on /rp/ itself if this board here isn't browsed enough. I'm fairly concerned with how things are, and maybe I'm a bit too late or just repeating what others have already said. But before I say anything I want to hear everyone elses thoughts on how they feel the population of the board is, it's content, the frequency of posts per threads, and if there is really a community left here or if everyone has either fucked off to other things in their lives or /rp/ has subdivided further into smaller communities within this one. I see far too many closed or ask/invite threads which seem quite unwelcoming to not only myself, but possibly to others and especially the rare newcomer. Or maybe we lack the motivation to keep in contact enough to do things? Or have I not lurked enough and still am stuck in an old midset of 2013 spring and summertime.

I was a very passionate user here in /rp/'s earliest days until the middle of the end. It saddens me to see what the place has become; posts being months apart and all that.

Yeah, I've made mistakes. Plenty of them. Mistakes that really haunt me. But you know? I wouldn't have traded that experience for anything.

I'm... kinda new.
I mean, I joined a couple months back, and the community here is actually pretty good about communicating. The main difference, I think, is that a lot of stuff is done on Skype and other programs like that.
