OOC and you! Ghosties ## Mod 40864744Sticky[View]

Greetings /rp/

With the merge mostly completed, Ponychan will be undergoing board reconfiguring. As such, OOC threads will now be placed on /rp/ due to imminent restructuring of the boards. As such, /ooc/ will be done away with.

We apologize for any confusion this might have brought about. Please bare with us as the site continues to shift and settle through the merge. Thank you.

Mostly agreeing with what everyone else is saying.

If we merge RP and OOC, well I was never really a visitor of mlpchan for too long, I just think combining the two sites and all the canons that they come with would just create way too much clutter. Like it would've been bad for just one site, but the fact that we're combining 2 sites and their canons and those canons and their ooc's, things will get lost in rapid succession.

New location: >>>/fic/6487

Hello, one month later. We're rebooting and revamping this project, and I'd like anyone who's interested in world-building to join us.

These questions are still up, though (and I would still enjoy to hear from you all):

1) What makes a good world in which to roleplay?

2) What do you like in terms of the atmosphere, the culture, the people and their histories? Is it a place which gives you creative freedom?

3) One which gives you incredible places to roam? One which has riveting tales all its own? Or is it not the place at all?

All cities have dark sides, and Canterlot is certainly no exception. On the wrong side of the tracks, everything appears to be dark and cold, the rainy weather being but an exclamation mark deepening the atmosphere of alienation and lurking fear.

The atmosphere changes though, as soon as you pass the worn door over the neon sign saying, in bright bold letters [U]D NUT BAR

Inside, amongst the tables and chairs dating back to the last century, with their nicks and stains and worn out padding, you can finally get yourself dry, drink something hot and wait out the rain. There's even a antique jukebox - someone placed the damaged neon 'o' from the sign outside next to it, the stylised glass donut looking a bit out of place with the sombre décor.

Here, all are welcome and accepted – so long as violence does not occur, as indicated by a the sign reading “Weapon bin by the door, put it in or we put you out. Cold."

On the blackboard, one may find what appears to be a scribble of nonsense:

6A: Permanent Midnight, Volume II The Canterlot Municipal Area!TZTzSdblvY 40866066[View]

Everywhere you looked, they weren't…it was like chasing the wind.


It's been a significant week in the world of rap music, for various reasons. Wednesday saw Emeneigh's 'Cud for Nothing' reach the top of the charts for the first time since its release, while NWA's "Fear of a Black Ponut" officially received double-platinum certification. Unfortunately, however, not everything is going so well: Grammy-winning recording artist Nicki Mineigh posted to her Whicker account today that she had received "threatening messages" and a senatorial summons regarding her top-40 hip-hop single "Wish I Was An Operator". When contacted by Backbeat reporters, she expressed a belief that her gender had nothing to do with the threats, saying: "They ain't hatin cuz I'm a bitch, they hatin cuz I'm a real street voice and they a bunch of punk ass players". This marks the fourth time in Mineigh's career that she has sustained threats of physical harm; the first, of course, occurring when someone threw a rubber chicken at her during her 53-6A concert…

Oh, what a time to be alive. What can I even say? Operators are on EWE shows now, unmasked and as themselves. Seven of the top ten most wanted spaces are held by operators, and Lonestar is still spinning its wheels trying to keep up. The Bangers and the Redheads are trading shots almost every day now, and you don't even wanna know what the Pezjunta's been up to lately. The longcoats are back in vogue, and they've even started doing Interviews. Electric Eye sales are through the roof, and job postings are coming at a mile a minute. There hasn't been a better time to be a criminal in the last 20 years!

But this can't last forever. Don't kid yourself. Sooner or later someone's going to blow up a school, or Lonestar's going to go back in business, or someone will do something stupid. They always do. The only question is: when the world falls down around you, will you be ready?

OOC can be found here.

Doctor!CuoreGi7v6 40867203

Doc doesn't pay much mind to everything happening around her; she was used to the commotion, and honestly couldn't care less. That, and she was fairly distracted with her own thoughts. But, as the giant slides up beside Doc and greets her, she gives him a once over, cocking an eyebrow lightly. "Thank the stars, she thinks, a stallion with actual meat on his bones. For once."

In response, she offers a light smile and a glance, but nothing more. She didn't seem in the best of moods, no, but she certainly wasn't going to shoot this stallion down. "Mmm. A little cold for my liking, but it is a nice night," she says, taking a sip of her drink. "Much much better than last night, at least. I was stuck in the hospital until four in the morning."

…Oh. Doc knew that pony! She works with that pony!

He looks like he hasn't seen her yet, so Doc takes this opportunity to do some mischief. Quietly, she creeps out of his line of sight and hides behind a bush. Then, she reaches around on the ground and finds a rock.


In a moment, her horn lights up, and the rock flings itself over at Blackjack.

Blackjack!E/MPoKerC6 40867210

>Indeed while she may fling a rock at him, she ends up still hitting the tree. She really needs to work on her aim of she wants to do something like that. Upon her throwing the rock, he looks at the rock, and then quickly at the bush.

Who is it? I don't have any weed if that's what you're wondering.

Umami+!Stale1v7yE 40867214

"Ouch." The stallion responded, simply. He shook his head, lightly. "I can't say I envy you…Doc." He ventured. He didn't know her actual name…but that was close! "Difficult patient, or something?" He asked. It was small talk, but it kept him occupied, for the moment. He quietly wondered if she would figure out who he was. Of all the ponies here, she seemed to be the only one he had actively worked with, and even that was a single mission. She hadn't seemed exceptionally happy on that one, either.

He took a slow swig of his beer, setting the stein down with a dull 'thud'. "I've done a little medical work myself. Nothing to legitimate though. Just, well, helping out friends who can't really afford to go to a more legitimate place."

Heveron #1 : Welcome to Kingsmeet TheBaffMan!pR.BaFF/uk 896626[View]

#Canon - Heveron#Invite

You've probably heard of it - the city that never sleeps, home to the free people of all three kingdoms combined. As you walk its streets you can feel the wind at your back, smell the lakeside shore as the sound of the running river hitting the millwheels reaches your ears. Crystal of all kinds and colours adorns the street lanterns from lands both near and far, cultures and races colliding and melding into a hub of both strangeness and excitement, holding the wildest of celebrations, tastiest of drink and most intriguing of people. Whether it's the farmers, the mages, the merchants, or the thieves and vagabonds, each can claim a place no matter their country, their history or their crimes.

Some might call it unsavoury, others despicable, but to the people who can thrive in a city of the delightedly damned, they simply call it 'home'.

So, whether you pursue justice for those that escape it, wish to take all you can for yourself and bury everything else beneath you in the process, or are simply looking for a fresh start to a new chapter in your life, look no further than Kingsmeet. Just be sure not to lose what you have along the way!


This is a small location thread based on the world of Heveron, and is run by the Scattered Shards community.

>On that thought, Elias' mind is pulled back to the tender age of 1. A cold evening in Alaestus on his front doorstep, his father towering over him, eyes unflinchingly focused on him. The words that were exchanged, before he left, and did not look back.

>The non-plussed expression on his face visibly softens into one of understanding. He could understand a goal like that.

You have admirable conviction…And I can't tell you that it's wrong for you to keep trying. I know what it's like to face a seemingly insurmountable wall.

"I know what it's like to face a seemingly insurmountable wall."

>Well, most everyone seemed to have some kind of issues they needed to deal with out here. Otherwise they wouldn't be here, they'd be at home, wherever that might be. The fact that Max didn't respond so easily to the statement wasn't because he didn't think it was relatable, but rather because everyone else at the guild had told him the same thing. "That kid's got spirit, but he's as foolish as a toddler", or "Not even special class mess with her, what's a D-class like you doing putting yourself through this?"

>It was a saddening set of thoughts, but they made him more frustrated than depressed. It had been 6 months already and he hadn't backed down from this, no way he was going to let his only redeemable quality fade from existence.

"I will say that you're probably not going to learn anything if you keep leaping into her explosions."

That's a little tough when they can pop up wherever she wants them to. The side, the back, throwing something from behind a stack of boxes, ugh. Maybe that's true…

>Various plans and scenarios all down the toilet - there was no weakness in her defensive wall. Hell, even when she seemed to be in 'automatic' mode, she effortlessly blocked him. Still, there was one thing he could tell himself; the same thing he'd been telling himself every time someone had doubted the point of it all.

… but if I do nothing, it amounts to nothing.
>He had to thank his mother for that one. All this meant was he had to try again with something different. Keep adjusting his tools, get some more lightning crystals and work on the next plan, all while doing whatever menial D-Class jobs he could get hold of.

The eyes are not a taboo subject. My father said that a natural connection to magic does strange things to the body, I'm partially Elvish, so that why I have this thing.

>He jabs the area around the purple ringed eye. When it comes to the second one, his hand falters and flops back down to his side.

As for the red one…I couldn't tell you. Nobody really knows what it does. As far as I can tell, it's just red. It doesn't do anything special. And as for why you've not seen me…

>He readjusts his position, helping him stand Maxwell's weight a little better.

I spend a lot of time out of the guild. Most of my missions are fairly long term, so I go travelling for a couple of months…This most recent mission lasted me a little over a year and it's now that I've come back. I should be around for a while again, I'd be glad of some more local missions…

#Ask/invite #Canon: Maretropolis!! #Contained #Adventure #Chill #Lighthearted #Violence #Ponies #Power Limit #Normal #Heroes and Villains #Silver Age

A city of wonders and unbelievable sights that stagger the imagination! Deep in the technological heart of the Ponyverse, a world away from Equestria in space and time, the buildings of Maretropolis reach up like titans fighting for a place in the sky. Every day sees new technological progress that baffles the imagination, ever blind to its own usage for good or for destruction. However, the breakneck pace of Maretropolis' progress into the future is limited not just to the intellectual, but the physical as well! Super-powered meta-equines pop up with alarming frequency, with strange abilities as mysterious and amazing to modern ponykind as magic to their earthbound ancestors! While some may choose to use their talents for heroism, many others will no doubt be inclined to take advantage of their abilities for petty violence, selfish interest, or diabolical ambition!

The hard-earned riches of Maretropolis, be they wealth, technology, or power, are always sought by the unscrupulous and undeserving. ready to take what they want through force or deception, and have their way with the city and its innocents! But in recent memory, the unbeatable Power Ponies have always been there to put a stop to the mad schemes of the Mane-iac and all others who would hope to seize control of the city! But lurking just behind the thin curtain of tomorrow, a new storm is raging that perhaps even the Power Ponies cannot stop! If Maretropolis is to survive, new heroes will have to realize their destinies, and take up the mantle of justice to protect the city and its inhabitants from the forces of evil!!

#Closed #Canon: 6A #Chill #Dark #Violence #FiM-only #Semi-serious

Now, this someone had a name...but finding it, that was the hard part.


Disaster struck during an Equestrian military flight today, when a helicopter suffered a severe electronics malfunction and crashed in the Vietneigh DMZ. The flight's passengers included two Equestrian soldiers, as well as prominent film producer Hoss Wheaton, who was scouting the DMZ for his new film. It was the first chartered military flight since the dissolution of Lonestar's federal defense contract, and pundits are already pointing to the crash as a symptom of the Equestrian army's incompetence. Grand Magister Winterscar is already allegedly accelerating negotiations with military contractors, while assuring representatives that he will not consider his own company in the proceedings...

There's a war coming. For now it's a whisper in the wind, a scrolling headline, a squeak at the very edge of perception. But it's coming. The shadows of this city seem to come alive, now: things that haven't moved in ages are stirring now, and old tensions are flaring up again. You can't walk down a street these days without hearing how the end is near—either from those new augments on the market, or those new people in the streets, or those new TV shows on the airwave.
People have started wearing longcoats in daylight, now. Bright blues and reds and greens and golds. There's a bank robbery every other day. Corpsec ranks are swelling. The Onyx age has come again; and with it, the promise of bloodshed unparalleled.
Will you be ready?

Krieg looks at the extent of the damage, the seriousness of her condition sinking in after the high of cheating death. 'Ah fuck, they got me good. Looks like I'm gonna be needing a lot of chrome." she thinks to herself. After a moment, she realizes the nurse was talking and blinks a couple times, trying to understand her. "Wh-what? Where am I?"

The Canterlot Municipal Area!TZTzSdblvY 40865979


The simple act of speaking would cause you to scream, if your vocal cords could survive such a thing. As it is you just open your beak and croak so quietly even you can barely hear it. Then the nurse, with a sigh, turns around and leaves you be. You'd best hope she's getting a translator.


File: 1429980431169.png (264.23 KB, 538x478, 2face.png)

As Krieg lay there, she began to take stock of what would need to be replaced. She'd probably have to get that paw amputated, so two prosthetic legs, and her breast would have to have the muscle and tissue regrown. She'd need a lot of skin grafts to replace the skin burned off, not to mention regrowing all her feathers. 'Once I get out of here, I'm gonna find that bastard. I'm going to find him, and I'm going to torch him. Then, I'm going to eat. Him. Alive.' she thought to herself.

Nestled in the center of Ponyville, just north of the bustling town square, the well-known Inn of the Last Home was open for business today, and the smell of potato fries and apple cider among harder drinks drifted out pleasantly on the wind. The interior was oak paneled and lit by the soft glow of several lamps and a softly burning hearth on the far side with several ponies of all ages and walks of life gathered here and there for the famous food or drink or just to swap tales and meet some new ponies. The tavern owner was in the back cooking, while a blue stallion with a lavender cloak and hat waited behind the bar, serving drinks with a friendly smile and reading from a book between customers to chat to.
>Setting is simple. Ponyville and mostly focused on the Inn of the Last Home.

#Open #Cross-canon #Planescape-y #Common Sense #Ponies and Non-Ponies
You take a shortcut to hide from the rain, hurrying through a random alley..
You take a turn in the narrow street by a shop you almost forgot that was there…
On a sunny evening you just feel like getting that one last coffee for today…
While visiting a friend in a different city you get off on a wrong station and turn left…


Somewhere else there is a bar. It doesn't really matter how you got in here, nor who you are. The door you just stepped through will get you back to wherever you came from. Usually.
If you were to ask anyone just where this place is, you'd hear it's "close enough to Sigil, but not yet there", that is, if you were to see anyone you could ask as the place seems empty at the moment.

On the blackboard someone wrote, in pink crayon "Staff. Now hiring! Srs offers only, eating patrons is ForBiddEn and will be FROWNED upon! Ask the plushie! P.S. Don't steal the cutlery!"

>no autostaff - want something? get it IC yourself or ask someone that already is in the bar!

>please don't burn the place more than once a week!

Donut Bar: Creamy Tahitan Saren Gas Edition Demo Dick !GuNsagGuEc 40862116[View][Last 50 Posts]

#Open #Canon: Donut Bar #Pseudo-canon #Cross-canon #Chill #Lighthearted #Shipping #General #Semi-serious #Crazy #Courtsey/Common Sense/ Fun #Its Varmus's fault

All cities have dark sides, and Canterlot is certainly no exception. On the wrong side of the tracks, everything appears to be dark and cold, the rainy weather being but an exclamation mark deepening the atmosphere of alienation and lurking fear.

The atmosphere changes though, as soon as you pass the worn door over the neon sign saying, in bright bold letters [U]D NUT BAR

Inside, amongst the tables and chairs dating back to the last century, with their nicks and stains and worn out padding, you can finally get yourself dry, drink something hot and wait out the rain. There's even a antique jukebox - someone placed the damaged neon 'o' from the sign outside next to it, the stylised glass donut looking a bit out of place with the sombre décor.

Here, all are welcome and accepted – so long as violence does not occur, as indicated by a the sign reading “Weapon bin by the door, put it in or we put you out. Cold."

On the blackboard, one may find what appears to be a scribble of nonsense:

The bar is NOT auto-staff, and it will stay that way.

Demons had scoured the Earth, you had killed them by the dozens, all to kill their leader and get revenge. Revenge for your pet rabbit, Daisy.

Little had you known, the ones who had taken Daisy's life were not the demons, but a force you and your ancestors were far too familiar with. Gripping onto your pet rabbit's head, you know there was only one thing to do.

Follow those Nazi bastards back in time, to their headquarters at Castle Wolfenstein. Try not to fuck History up too much, ok kid?

Reapo points to the ghost with a big, big happy sound and a smile, before frowning and turning to Toby with a 'b-buh' look.

Scattered Shards - OOC Thread TheBaffMan!pR.BaFF/uk 849877[View][Last 50 Posts]

#Canon - Type Moon#OOC#Invite Only#Planning

Alright people, there's a lot to still figure out in regards to all of this so let's get some ideas generating!

Aside from that, hang out, have fun and chat away. If you've got hefty ideas written out that you want to keep track of in here, make sure to save the post number somewhere, or better yet save it in a notepad for later use.

More Info!
Scattered Shards is a roleplay set in the Type Moon universe, pulling together inspiration from visual novels such as Fate Stay/Night, Tsukihime and other related materials. For reference, this roleplay takes place in the same world as the plotlines for F/SN and Tsukihime. We currently have no IC thread as the roleplay has yet to begin proper, but we will be starting up Soon(TM)!

The roleplay is listed as an Invite Only canon, but this doesn't mean it's completely closed. If we know who you are and you've got some real genuine interest, come and hang out! We'd like you to get a feel for the place before either you or we make any decisions.

More detailed rules will be found on the wiki in due time, but for now the only thing to note is OOC etiquette:

- You're mostly free to do whatever as long as it obeys the MLPchan site rules.
- Try to show a little thick skin, people like to joke. On the other side of that, don't take a joke too far when it's obviously not being received well.

#Ask/invite #Canon: Trotswood #Ponies

On the Edge of Equestria near the western forests. Lies Trotswood, a small town on the Edge
of civilization as ponies know it. A haven for the weird and supernatural, Trotswood has
never grown into a particularly large town and though ponies come and go, it needs more
ponies to grow. Ponies who can run shops, work jobs, and defend the town from the horrors
that lurk at its edges. The town is small right now, consisting of a few shops, some homes,
a hospital, and the bar next to the hospital.

Trotswood is supposed to be a growing community, where there is no overall OP to handle anything
but OOC disputes and the rules. Everything is player driven, the story, the town, the ponies in
in the town. It is a place players can make an arc, and bring the whole town into it, you do not have
to make up a setting or anything, just take the town and its basics and make it into a place
to base your story out of. Trying to be inclusive to everyone is even better, so walk around town
and don't stick with the same people. Get in a fight, Make new friends, End up in the hospital,
laughing it off. try not to talk about rp in OOC, just post yourself around town and let people

Will be using the map of Equestria for traveling but I am planning to expand the world

War... war never changes. Especially not after the first nuke fell, during the Pony Gryphon War, causing a massive hellfire of retaliation on both sides. Life at first seemed doomed but miraculously it still prevailed, in the safety of Stables and underground bunkers. Hundreds of years after the most intelligible races of the world locked them selves away, they ventured out only to be met with the sins of their ancestors. A wasteland that demanded sacrifice and death in return for nothing. Most wastelanders tried to make a living through the hardships on stories of legends like the heralds who journeyed north, only to disappear into obscurity. Others turned to a life of vice, murder, and other thing that are nearly unbearable to mention. It is here you must make a life, to survive or die. To save or kill. To be loved by all or hated and feared by many. All because life in the wasteland is a constant war, and war never changes.

Epic Mount!Hero.tYu2g 40866833

>Epic still had a nasty scar where the night stalker attacked. But given most of his body was covered in large scabs, it was lucky even by ghoul standards to be able to get back onto his hooves.

Th-thanks. For helping me.

I was thinking we d20 roll with SPECIALs that are required for the situation.

For example if you need to fire your gun, roll d20 with your Agility followed by another roll to determine the damage of the weapon. Additional points depending on the quality of weapon.

The use of actual skills may complicate things such as leveling up and administrating 100 points each. Perhaps best we avoid leveling entirely and just use standard, balanced character skills.

Critical+Hit 40866840

"No problem, we need look out for one another in order to get through this."

The party continued their climb and finally reached the summit. To their discovery, the mountain itself was not volcano. The smoke had been pouring out the entrance of a large stable. To the side they could see the old gear like door had been torn from the outside by a large creature and was now facing up with the number 31 on its face.

Well then I'm all for but I want to have an OK from Gears since he's an active member of this thread as well. If we do do this then we'll all have to resubmit a character sheet or just give our specials. You won't have to go through acceptance again but when determining your stats, treat your character as if he was lvl 1, so no Intense Training perks. Trust me if I had my stats from my Fo3 game, I would be way too over powered.

Epic Mount!Hero.tYu2g 40866878

>As the walk up the mountain, Epic began talking to Doombunny again.
Does it look bad?
>Holds the rabbit close to his neck.
I know… she'll notice. But I won't tell her if you won't. I don't want her dissapointed at me again.
>Continues his conversation wit hthe rabbit for awhile
*Sigh* Don't remind me. Still I guess these guys are… alright.
>Under his breath.
Well, thats interesting.

I think that you should set our SPECIALs with 40 points. Ponies can have 1-10 on each of their attributes.

And if you permit me to have 42 points to spend on my SPECIAL as long as I use Ghoul statistics in Fallout Tactics. For example I can max out Epic's strength to be poweful butt-kicker, but he'll still be two points weaker than a pony with max strength.

As for Skills, perhaps instead of 1-100, we can tag three skills we'd like to specialise in.
