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 you do, can you let me know at Gener

#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

Rejoice! I, the great Moon Goddess Artemis, shall be the one to bless this humble OOC thread with my presence!
So continue on with your normal lives mortals! Live, learn, love, and lose in peace knowing that I am here watching over you!

If you wish to join this canon to bask in the presence of I, Moon Goddess Artemis, then need only ask here and, once admitted, complete week-long waiting period which is used to learn about the cannon, it's lore, the players, the characters, and of course, me, Moon Goddess Artemis!

This is Better Layton Never and I, Moon Goddess Artemis, will protect the world from threats beyond the stars!

The Lost Light: Rebellion OOC #1: Taking off Ivory!ScratchNrc!!H4MJSwMJR2 488448[View][Last 50 Posts]

#The Lost Light #Ask/invite #OOC

Welcome to the first "Lost Light" ooc thread! We're just a small RP canon at the moment, but our primary goal is to have a fun space opera Sci-fi Fantasy RP.

The story so far:
You bought this old ship for super cheap, the previous owners even rigged up an interface for you and your crew to be able use it yourselves. For some reason they seemed to be in a rush to get rid of the thing. With the crew you have so far and your zoid friends you take off for space, hoping to be able to do something against the oppressive regime that took over your home planet. But you know what you have now won't be enough, it'll take the strength of numbers and a lot of support to be able to put up a fight against the tyranny of the Jupiter Empire.

We're a relatively open crossover RP, although it's less things coming together from other worlds through portals and more "these things have just always been in this universe."

For the most part this first thread is for planning purposes and gauging interest of other people on the image board.

Planet List thus far:

6A OOC and Signup Thread: Second Edition The Canterlot Municipal Area!TZTzSdblvY 469757[View][Last 50 Posts]

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?

Sixth Age: Neon Shadows (or 6A, for short), is an imageboard RP with a twist: while character interaction and downtime between action occurs within a thread on the board, combat encounters and other action scenes take place on a simulated tabletop, provided via the free online service Roll20. Players assume the roles of career criminals in the far-flung future of Equestria, where the Elements of Harmony are little more than a myth and the world is dark and uncertain. Player characters are average individuals, with no particularly unique characteristics other than their skill and determination—they're average Joes, in other words. In your quest to liberate yourself from poverty, you'll sling advanced weapons, perform spectacular feats of criminal savvy, and toy with incredible technology. While players can choose virtually any angle of approach, they all share a common goal: the acquisition money and po

Heveron OOC Thread #2 !ReIheBaff. 487025[View][Last 50 Posts]

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

A new year, a new home for your free points, image hosting and other shenanigans. Welcome to the Heveron OOC Thread, the main canon in the Scattered Shards line of roleplay scenarios.

<Newcomers / New Players

If you're not part of the canon, feel free to hang around here anyway! We all have friends from various places, so don't be afraid to drop by for a chat or to ask about the world we're playing with. As part of our second year we're planning on expanding our player roster a little, but please bear in mind that this is still an invite-based canon, so we'll let you know if we think Heveron might be your thing.


As is standard, make sure to follow the site rules! Nobody can do anything if they've been banned. Aside from that, we're quite easygoing - obviously you shouldn't post in the /rp/ thread unless you're actually part of the canon, but you're more than welcome to stick around here.

The actual rules regarding the canon itself are a lot more complicated, as we have a full RPG-like system in place for creating characters and having battles. This is constantly being improved upon and adjusted, so don't be afraid of any changes.


We have a whole bunch of documents pertaining to the systems and lore in the world of Heveron, so feel free to peruse these as you like. If you get a little lost or confused, just drop us a question - we're an information resource, too!

Want to just drop in and say hello? By all means. This is the thread for you to drop in, say hello, if you want to join, if you like the story. It doesn't matter. Just please remember, we do need people, the princess spots are still up for grabs, mane cast, whatever floats your boat. Just know you'll be facing off against humans, and magic's a bit... well, it works differently towards humans. Besides, two people RPing in a forum is boring, so please come on in and join!

I'm looking to start up a fun, show style open thread with the setting being the town of Ponyville. But! For some mysterious reason, Ponyville has run out of cherries! And no one knows why!

Princess Celestia is off on duties, and the main six are too busy with their separate missions to help out their home town. So together, the citizens of Ponyville must solve the mystery of why the cherries have not been delivered!

Roles that will probably need to be filled:

-Shop keepers

-Adventurers To Solve The Mystery! (perhaps volunteers or elected through the actual rp thread? Otherwise OOC is fine)


-A villain?

If this sounds like a fun idea for a thread, then let's make it happen cap'n!

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!

Essence Points, people! Here's the list of everyone who made it through March without burying their head in the sand. Some of you have introduced new characters that haven't been statted out yet, so if any of these don't apply then juuust pass along a little note I can burn to remind me.
