Shining Light: A Time of Heroes Thread 3: Never Sleeps Edition #Ask/Invite #Canon: Lost Light Universe #Era: Shining Light #Superheroes #IC

>A world never sleeps. There is always something in motion. And while one person rests, another person will be going through events that will change the very fabric of their being. So, no matter the time, a world never sleeps.

>In fact, when it's night, the world usually has the stories that are the most interesting. The moonlit confrontations next to towering buildings. Feelings pouring out under a torrent of rain by the light of streetlamps. Something as simple as a bare knuckle brawl on a prairie next to a river. There's a magic to night that can make anything seem poetic, and wonderful.

>Whether the roaring torrent of feelings was the last desperate attempt to convince somebody that they were meant to be together, or an amorous young adult in a night club attempting to explain to their would-be paramour why the mullet is objectively Superman's best haircut.

>That's the kind of world this is. Conflicts of world-ending portents, rising emotion. People crossing fists for fun, and arguments so heated that they couldn't be about anything other than the trivial.

>Both are important. Both are enjoyable.

>Welcome to Shining Light.

Better Layton Never Thread #67: Passing on the torch #BLN #Better Layton Never #Ask/Invite #IC

>Somewhere in Silver City, a Powerful Pair of heroes monitor the world which they have so eagerly dedicated to protect over the last few years. An unsung hero and his faithful Awesome Lad ready themselves as an alarm blairs signaling their call to action.

Holly Tolito Thread Man, it's the call to action alarm! It's time for Thread Man and Post Boy to save the world.

...No Post Boy, I'm afraid my time is up.

>The hero looks at the alarm in stern silence. He had only heard this very alarm once before. He knew well what it meant for him and his sidekick.

But Thread Man! You can't say that. This is a job only you can handle.

Post Boy, I have mentored you well over the last year, and never once have I heard you be more wrong then you have been now. It's your turn, boyo. The time has come for you to take up the mantel.

>Post Boy looks at his mentor in shock. Never once since he was adopted by Thread Man after his own parents were killed by The Sager had he heard his hero speak in such a way.

But...But Thread Man! I can't possibly do this on my own! I'm not ready. I still need you. The world still needs you to protect them.

That's where you're wrong, Post Boy. It is true, I have been here for longer then any other Thread Man to date. I alone have carried this mantel for far longer then any who had come before me. But I always knew that my time would come. That eventually that very alarm we hear now would signal my time to move on and make way for the next generation. Such as the previous Thread Men have before me. And now it's you're turn, Post Boy. From here on out, you are the new Thread Man.

>The Awesome Lad looks at the Cloaked Adventurer in disbelief. He can't believe that after all this time his hero would just come out and say such unbelieveable words. But in his heart of hearts he knew them to be true. Such is the inevitable fate of all Thread Men.

I.....I won't let you down, sir.

I know that, boyo. I have trained you well.

>He reaches out to grasp at Post Boy's badly drawn hand. The two stand for a moment in understanding silence. Silently saying their goodbye's as they knew what would come one he left the lair.

Now go! The world needs you..Thread Man.

>Without another word, the new Thread Man rushes off to the Mod Mobile and drives off to face the danger that threatened their world.

Mod speed, Thread Man.....Mod speed.

>The hero closes his eyes as his existence begins to fade from this world. A new day was dawing on the world. He knew the world of Better Layton Never was in good hands.

Hello and welcome to the first OOC thread of the canon Better Layton Never! (BLN) Also ignore the fact we had an /ooc/ board and ooc threads before this

This thread will mostly serve as a place for new players to come and meet us!

To simply put BLN is a canon where anything can happen, accepting all walks of life, characters ,and roleplays! So long as it fits in with site rules and basic common sense

Lost Light Universe OOC 2: Cute Dragon Edition #OOC#Canon: Lost Light Universe#Ask/Invite

Yo! So here's the Lost Light Universe OOC thread. We don't make much use out of it, but it's useful for getting info and stuff out there and in public on the site.

As You can see from the initial title, we've undergone some rebranding from "The Lost Light: Rebellion" OOC to LLU. There's a fairly simple reason for that!~

Soon we'll be introducing a new thread and era to roleplay in with "Shining Light: A Time Of Heroes", a free form and open world Superhero RP that takes place on Lost Light's version of Earth during the present day. It's a mash up world of a few different settings, having history from Marvel, DC, GI Joe, Spawn, and even Power Rangers! It's a lot like Lost Light in that it's not the sort of crossover where these worlds are colliding, but rather all these things have been part of this world already! That said given we can't just go "there's a planet for that"with shining light, things are slightly more restricted in what can be introduced and what elements from the source material can be brought over, ex: The Source Wall from DC is a no go.

If you're interested in either TLL:R or SL: ATOH let us know and drop your discord name our way, we'll invite you to our Discord server for a trial period to see how you get along with everyone!
We'll also be using some new tags for our canon changed up from what we had before, first being introduced in this thread and the Shining Light IC, The Lost Light and Tales threads will inherit the new tag system with their next incarnations.

Morning Light: Thread 1: In Media Res #ask/invite #canon: lost light universe #era: six hours before high noon #no but for real it's a fantasy au #era: morning light

It is a time of legends.

The world has never known more peril than it does in these halcyon days, nor has the sun above it ever shone brighter for the brave and noble souls that stand against the forces that want the mortal world for themselves.

Twenty years have passed since the greatest of Man's princes turned traitor and took up the mantle of the Lich King, sitting in his citadel of ice and bone in the far north of the world, plotting the downfall of all things good and pure in existence, and yet all his necrotic might and icy hatred has been for naught against the heroism of the cities that were once his and the arms and armies of other cities still that never trusted him, even in the days where he yet possessed a soul of his own.

It has been ten years since the disaster at Kaprika, an entire civilization vanishing overnight, sucked screaming into the realm of Chaos and leaving behind a frigid hellscape of capering demons and embittered, haggard survivors, a place where the veil between material and immaterial is treacherously thin and the unknowable things that wish to gnaw on the bones of the myriad mortal races and spit the gristle out claw feverishly at the bars of their cages, shrieking and gibbering where none can hear, but for every demon that bursts through reality like a swollen, diseased pustule, there are twenty silver-armored figures of the Seventh Legion to stamp it out, purple bolts of witchfire splashing off their armor like greasy smoke and tortured, inhuman shrieks falling on deaf ears as these few elite among Stormwind's countless defenders condemn the beast to another eternity of seeking an entrance into the materium.

It has been five years since the formation of the Orders, fraternal organizations that seek to look beyond border disputes and age-old blood feuds to protect their various homes and ensure all are ready for the next inevitable crisis, for there are always more crises, more than could ever be put into words; those named are but a few among innumerable, just as the glories and honors of these days. The orcish warriors of Orgrimmar raise a shout of joy and pride to rival any cheer of Stormwind's human sons at news of slain titanic beasts or repelled demonic incursions; the archmagi and nether-scholae of the College work tirelessly to bring new arcane wonders into the world just as eagerly as the dwarvish blacksmiths and runesmiths of Ironforge show off their newest inventions to the merchant-lords of Reeve. Every war sees new wonders created and discovered in tandem, every spat between Horde and Alliance is in spite of how well their soldiers have overcome the Fallen Son's latest plans. It is a world of contradictions and sureties, myths and mysteries.

Rejoice in what it means to know honor and glory, for these are words that mean a million things to a million beings but have never been more universally understood. Marvel at the wonders of the age, for to live here is to witness an epoch of discovery and remembrance, to see gods and science existing side by side.

It is a world where adventure can be found wherever it is sought, and where the battle must never be forsaken, no matter how dire.

It is merely a matter of time.

The Lost Light Rebellion 4: Total Fucking Chaos Edition #IC #Canon: TLL #Ask/Invite


>The serenity of the pristine new set was instantly shattered, it's host charging onstage with a berserker shriek, a gleaming golden battleaxe clutched in both hands as he immediately set to work dismembering his polished desk with wild attacks. A marathon of destruction followed as he mangled the furniture with every variety of tool at his disposal.

>After several minutes of this, almost the entire set reduced to rubble, he collapsed into his chair. Instantly, the holodeck shimmered, and the debris vanished, replaced by brand new, identical furniture.

>For several long moments, Joel stares into the middle distance, before standing up and sauntering over to a microphone by the front of the stage.

Hey, hey everyone!

>He shouted to a blatantly fake audience consisting of the same five people in vaguely different outfits, with the sole example of the hulking Pax Cultura, looking fairly awkward in the face of Joel's chaos.

Welcome to the first episode of the show, it's a great thing to finally get this started, and I'm hoping it only gets better.

>Behind him, a bookshelf glitches, turning into a wireframe before turning itself inside out and beginning to rattle ominously.

We've had a pretty crazy time lately, pretty crazy time. We've got Logan and some weird chick going and rescuing some new guys from some asshole, those lesbian rocks joined up, that's pretty neat. They've got a kid who turns into a murderous monster, I like that one. You've got those two Saiyans on a quest for a healing flower or some shit, that other Saiyan getting in a fight to rescue her girlfriend from her asshole mom's hired thug. Oh! It's that wrestler! I almost forgot! That's cool.

>The bookshelf returns to it's wooden texture, flashing through a dozen other textures on the way, before violently exploding, the shards vanishing as safety protocols finally kick in.

You've got that one asshole and his robot wife investigating a ghost ship. I hope he dies, that'd make me happy. Bolone's brother showed up, too. He's an asshole but a cool one. But the important bit is we're on vacation! We're here in the Galactic Protectorate, and we're having a fantastic time, by which I mean Emily's been dragging me around museums for a solid three weeks now. But the race is tomorrow! See me at the Moreau Open in my custom Thorson Kestrel!

>He coughs, shifting.

Oh yeah, we're supposed to have a co-host. He'll be around later, scout's honor. I think he's still hiding.

>Abruptly, the door explodes inward violently as Leena makes her entrance.

We're a small group of roleplayers on a private server of the pony MMO Legends of Equestria and are looking for new blood to roleplay with and have fun.

We've spent a lot of time developing our characters and storylines however serious or silly they might've been.
Over the years we've had some pretty great and memorable storylines with events and quotes we reference to this day.

However, we now decided to start an all new fresh canon and I figured this was as good an opportunity as any to try and get new people on board. If even just one or two people would care to stick around i'd be pretty happy.

Better Layton Never: Execute Thread #66 #BLN #Better Layton Never #Ask/Invite #IC

Star Wars III soundtrack - Order 66 and the Jedi Temple

>In the cold and dim interior of a resplendent star cruiser a figure looks out a wide viewport at the endless expanse of space itself. His hands, gnarled and greyed, fold behind his back. He gazes at the canvas of stars speckling a black void and grins, revealing atrocious rotten teeth in his saggy mouth.

Ah, good. The time has finally arrived. For years I've spent waiting...biding my time until at last the monolith that was the Jedi reign became complacent. Dull. Ignorant and arrogant. The 'balance' by which the Jedi strive became their very downfall, and now the galaxy bends to the whim of the Sith. It is united, it is strong, and soon our focus can hone elsewhere.

>He turns and gazes behind him, his eyes burning in the dark. Even sunken and sallow as he appeared, there was a distinct menace in his presence. His voice ranged from quiet and sophisticated to cruel and cackling, enough to make anyone's hair stand on end just by listening to him.

Perhaps...your measly solar system? It would not be much a challenge, but I confess...the prospect is tempting. I sense great darkness. I sense great anger. Will to dominate. Will to subjugate. Will to kill anything standing in the way...

>A greasy cackle echoes in the dark.

Oh. Do you think you can stand in the way of the Sith? Such confidence...your emotions shall betray you. The Dark Side consumes all. You, your world will be no different. You may try to resist. It would be amusing to me to see it even if you shall fail.

You still wish to try? Very well...let's begin.

Tales of Equestria: The Race for the Scarlet Galleon #OOC/Sign up #Pen and Paper: Tales of Equestria #Adventure

As dawn breaks and sun creeps through your window and dances through your room with a warm embrace you hear a knocking at the door. You answer and find that it was the mailpony who had arrived to deliver what looked to be a priority letter meant for you. She doesn't know what it was about but she know who sent it, a museum owner in Canterlot by the name of Curio Bauble. You take the letter to your kitchen and have a look at the writing shortly after tearing open the envelope.

If you have received this letter then it means that I require your aid in a job that I alone can not do. Inside this letter you will find a single ticket for a train ride up to Canterlot so we can meet and discuss the work to be had. To entice you I will promise a fortune for your co-operation should you accept my quest. With Regards, Curio Bauble

The letter ends there after his signature but true to his word you do find a train ticket to Canterlot buried in deep within the envelope. What would a museum owner need someone such as yourself? The only way to find out was to head up to the city in the mountain.

Welcome the the Race for the Scarlet Galleon OOC and sign up board. Here you can get a feel for what this RP is and what it is about. If you have any questions please feel free to leave a post and I will get to you as soon as possible.

We will be using the standard rules for Tales of Equestria. You yourself will not need a copy of the book itself as will handle any of the mechanics of the game. Each person who wishes to join the RP will have to submit a character sheet which will be listed below.

Character Sheet
There are some special things to note about when making a character which will be referred to after the list here. This will have to do with the rules and how your character functions.

(Strong/Smart) Choose One
Cutiemark Talent:
Minor Talents: Choose Three
Quirks: Choose Two
Appearance: You can use a picture instead
Background: Optional

Each Race is given a Racial Talent based on their abilities. The book lists the three pony races only but you can use a different race of your choice if you wish and their ability will be substituted. For example a Crystal Pony or Diamond Dog will have the same Racial Talent as an Earth Pony. Griffons would be counted for as Pegasi and any magical creature would be covered by Unicorns. Some races might be unique such as Changelings who will have talents automatically chosen for them with their Cutie Mark skill being Transform and their Racial Talent Fly. I can be pretty flexible when it comes to their talents so long as you can make a good case argument with your submission. Also try to pick a race that is in the show as of now.

Earth Pony
Earth Ponies have their Body die upgraded automatically to a potential 1d8 on character creation. They also have Stout Heart that they can use once per day to help when accomplishing a physical task such as running or fighting

Unicorns can train different schools of magic and learn different spells. Their Racial Talent is Telekinesis.

Pegasi have the ability to fly across the sky. They can also use this skill to manipulate the weather so long as they have access to clouds.

Traits are your character's overall fitness, mentality, and charm. Traits are rolled alongside with Talents when making die checks.

Body: A character's strength: Upgrades to 1d6 if you choose to be Strong

Mind: A character's intelligence and mental fortitude: Upgrades to 1d6 if you choose to be Smart

Charm: A character's appearance and demeanor to others. Starts at 1d6

Talents are a characters ability and are used in conjuction with their Traits such as Body, Mind, or Charm. When upgrading your dice, you can only upgrade a talent once per level. Making an unskilled check without the right check is possible but the Exploding Hoof rule can not be used in such cases.

Cutie Mark Talent: This is your main talent and will upgrade automatically each time you level up. This will start at 1d6.

Racial Talent: This is your talent based on your race. Your Racial Talent will have the same rules as your Minor Talents after your character is created. This will start at 1d6

Minor Talents: These are skills that you have learned over time. When your character levels up, you can upgrade or learn three skills including your Racial Talent. These will start at 1d4

Exploding Hoof Rule: When you roll a dice and get the highest result possible, the Exploding Hoof goes into play. (ex. 1d6=6) When this happens the dice is upgraded and rerolled and the highest result will be kept. (ex. 1d6=6 -> 1d8=7 / Talent Score = 7)

These are simply your characters weaknesses and shortcomings. These can vary between your character needing glasses to see, being quick to anger, having a disheveled appearance, any sort of fears of a specific thing, and so on. It is up to you to decide what your character's quirks are. Do note that quirks will often impact your character's ability and dice rolls.

And that's all. If you have any questions feel free to ask.

Rita Repulsa rpg thread 1
Itt one poster acts the part of Rita Repulsa while the 2nd player acts the part of the Power Rangers as a whole, the storylines and rules for each of the 2 players of the game are as follows

Player 1: you are Rita Repulsa and have recently discovered how to resurrect every monster of yours the rangers have defeated thus far, but to counter this the rangers manage to banish them all to the Scooby Doo universe shortly after their resurrection. Not willing to accept defeat so easily Rita Repulsa uses this new power of hers elsewhere, itt roll the dice (1 die) all numbers from 1 to 6 will determine wich slasher film character will be risen from the grave, the designated number for each character belongs to the order in which the movies were made, for example Jason Voorhees may hold the number 2 spot while the Leprechaun may hold the number 6 spot.

Player 2: you are the Mighty Morphing Power Rangers and your arch rival Rita Repulsa has sent down a new enemy the likes of which you have never seen, working together though you manage to defeat him just like every other monster, but just like every other monster Rita Repulsa throws her staff down to earth to make this slasher fim character bigger, your normal g1 Megazord may not be enough this time around so the rangers must summon from across time one of many different variations of Megazords that existed throughout the show, roll the dice (1 die) to determine which one, they will be in order from 1 to 6 as they appeared in the show.

Rules for both players: both players must do reaserch depending on which slasher film character you got or which Megazord you got in order to accuratly know fully what both character's strangths and weaknesses are and be able use that research to prove beyond a reasonable doubt to the other player which would win the fight.

Wrath of the Anti Fluttershy My Little Pony
Wrath of the Anti Fluttershy

The rules of the game.

1. Whatever the outcome of the story the ending is definitive because it's already finished ready to be posted at the end.

2. We follow a pattern of 1 poster writes a chapter then another poster writes the following chapter and so on until every poster has gotten a turn then we repeat that cycle again until the story is finished.

3. The only exception to rule #2 is how chapter 1 will play out, half of it is already finished in another thread and I'll be posting it here after this post and that will count as my turn and another poster will write the 2nd half and seeing as I already wrote out the final chapter this will count as me having had a 2nd turn which means the next person after me also gets 2 turns.

4. Since every fictional universe will be involved here we're looking at an R rating level of story telling unless Mikie says otherwise then in which case tone it down.

5. Regardless of the twist ending of who the villain is in the end and how he dies please handle it maturely.

6. Each fictional universe has to take place in its up to date time period so that means that if a character died in one story he won't exist in this one unless you have a reasonable explanation for how he came back from the dead.

7. Don't derail the thread and be sure to have fun.

>the story's premise

Out of all works of literary fiction going all the way back to probably the very first novel to ever exist in book form, the key villain of this particular book is not only the first villain of literary fiction ever thought up but is also the most evil of them all, imagine if you will a genie with a massive ego who committed crimes such as ordering the execution of gays, drowning innocent people and demanding the blood sacrifice of his only son to appease his anger.

Now you may be thinking that we are safe here in reality and that monsters like this only exists in literary works and can't pass that fine line between fiction and reality, well this particular villain found a way.

Though not able to step into physical reality himself, this villain's influence upon those who read the novel he resides in can and do commit horrible acts of cruelty and do his bidding here in reality and will continue to do so until their master meets his end once and for all, but there's a problem with that how do you destroy that which only exists in the imagination?

That is a question that the main 6 from MLP fim will find themselves asking in this story along with coming to terms with the traumatic realization that they themselves are also fictional characters in a story but they emotionally make it through that realization eventually and make that harsh truth their greatest strength in their fight against the vicious Anti Fluttershy.

The main 6 come to realize that human imagination created the Anti Fluttershy so it is human imagination that must now destroy him and they need your help to do so, their journey is made clear and they must set sail through the multiverse gathering both protagonists and antagonist of every literary work ever throught up throughout human history to be united together as one vast army ready to fight against the Anti Fluttershy but it won't be easy.

Some characters becoming aware of the concept of them being waifued realize that you the ones who have waifued them are the best allies they have because you cowrite the story they now find themselves in and your possible disbelief in the Anti Fluttershy makes him weaker.

You guy's waifus/husbandos as well as every fictional character you've come to know and love are in dire need of your help, will you let them down?

Shining Light: A Time of Heroes Thread 1: #Ask/Invite#Canon: Lost Light Universe#Era: Shining Light#Superheroes

We live in an era where the fantastic can happen, 200, 300 years ago? You probably wouldn't see things like that as normal, and if you did, chances are you were nuts.

But a lot of that changed when things started popping up into the world in the 1900's.

"As I have learned since, I was not the first anomaly to exist... but on that day of my freedom in 1939, this world had its first confrontation with the fantastic. The Golden Age of miracles would begin, and in the years to come, the world would know the presence of the unnatural and extraordinary as part of reality"- Jim Hammond in a 1960 interview with Phil Sheldon

"Shining Light: A Time Of Heroes" is a free form and open world Superhero RP that takes place on Lost Light's version of Earth during the present day. It's a mash up world of a few different settings, having history from Marvel, DC, GI Joe, Spawn, and even Power Rangers! It's a lot like Lost Light in that it's not the sort of crossover where these worlds are colliding, but rather all these things have been part of this world already! That said given we can't just go "there's a planet for that"with shining light, things are slightly more restricted in what can be introduced and what elements from the source material can be brought over, ex: The Source Wall from DC is a no go.

Prometheus Academy #Closed/Invite Only #Non-Pony #Canon: Prometheus Academy

Q: What is Prometheus Academy?

A: The setting will take place in modern-day Earth, just 20 years after the rise of the first super-heroes. It follows the story of students at the aforementioned academy that has recently opened, the first school ever attempting to educate Super-powered individuals.

Q: What do I need to do to join/play?

A: The step by step process is explained in the Character Creation document, which also contains explanations of any terms, and various examples. You should come up with a character idea, a super-power you find entertaining, and then mold it from there in the creation process. You do not choose from existing classes or feats, instead the creation process is designed to help you translate your vision into hard numbers for any gameplay.

Chapter Master: Forum RPG It is the 41st Millennium. For more than a hundred centuries The Emperor has sat immobile on the Golden Throne of Earth. He is the Master of Mankind by the will of the gods, and master of a million worlds by the might of his inexhaustible armies. He is a rotting carcass writhing invisibly with power from the Dark Age of Technology. He is the Carrion Lord of the Imperium for whom a thousand souls are sacrificed every day, so that he may never truly die.

Yet even in his deathless state, the Emperor continues his eternal vigilance. Mighty battlefleets cross the daemon-infested miasma of the Warp, the only route between distant stars, their way lit by the Astronomican, the psychic manifestation of the Emperor's will. Vast armies give battle in his name on uncounted worlds. Greatest amongst his soldiers are the Adeptus Astartes, the Space Marines, bio-engineered super-warriors. Their comrades in arms are legion: the Imperial Guard and countless planetary defence forces, the ever vigilant Inquisition and the tech-priests of the Adeptus Mechanicus to name only a few. But for all their multitudes, they are barely enough to hold off the ever-present threat from aliens, heretics, mutants - and worse.

To be a man in such times is to be one amongst untold billions. It is to live in the cruelest and most bloody regime imaginable. These are the tales of those times. Forget the power of technology and science, for so much has been forgotten, never to be re-learned. Forget the promise of progress and understanding, for in the grim dark future there is only war. There is no peace amongst the stars, only an eternity of carnage and slaughter, and the laughter of thirsting gods.
- Vulkan, Primarch of the XVIII Legion

But! Before we begin, I have a special guest announcer here with me for our 64th annual chance time, and boy has he wormed his way into our hearts! Trying to quiz anyone that speaks with him, give a warm introduction to Chuck Quizmo!

>Chuck Quizmo's the name, and quizzes are my game! You want quizzes, I got 'em! If you can manage to answer my brain-busting questions correctly, then...


>Y... Yaa... Yaaaaaahooo! I'll give you a Star Piece!


>Exactly! And thank you, Ballyhoo, for inviting myself and my assistant to this monumental edition of Chance Time.

But of course! Before we get started with the main event, a little heart told me you had your very own giveaway to commence!

>That I do, Ballyhoo.

Well then! Don't leave us in any more suspence than we alredy are, my good host! On with the show!

>Very well then. Question:

>How many Shamans of the greater Merlin family has Mario met across all his adventuring? Is it:

>A) 5

>B) 7

>C) 8

>D) 10

>E) 14

Now that is a toughie, Chuck! Any chance of a hint to our intrepid audience?

>Unfortunately not Balleyhoo, we've only got so many Star Pieces to go around, and only this special one to hand off to our detail-following desciple that answers correctly!

You heard him, folks, that's just the way the paper folds! Better hop to it if you want a crack at that star piece before we get on to the main event! Just what can the answer be? I'm crazed with anticipation!

Heveron #3 : To The Shattered Root #Closed / Invite Only #Canon: Heveron #Fantasy

<The world is such a fragile thing, easily broken and forced to bear the scars left upon it for centuries, millenia. Though the shapes upon the surface shift and change, though the skylines shatter and grow anew, the fractured soil that begets life remains twisted, torn and shattered. Great spires of crystalline light reveal naught but the cruel work of the afflicted, the champions turned renegades turned executors of a justice that merely fit the eye of the beholder. Such is the legacy of the Crystal.

<Welcome, then, to Alethbedia, the world trapped between itself and the ever-present Aether. Though many lands have their grand history, their remnants of a time long since passed, none bear the marks more closely than the continent of Heveron. The light and power of the crystals fuels most everyday convenience, the power of magic almost a currency in this prosperous age with those born already bearing such potency standing at the forefront of power and control. Yet within such power lies many secrets, many truths that would best be left untouched and well alone.

<Far be it from me, then, to reach for those secrets myself... don't you think~?

[Elizabeth Carmilla - 1886, The Documents of The Scarlet Witch]

Welcome to thread three everyone! Here's hoping we can recover from the mass erasure that killed off our prior adventures, thankfully saved and available through other means. Here's to a productive third year!
Hahahahahaha I can't believe I'm actually writing that. Let's hope we can get more posts out than one every week.

Simply Pony: OOC #1 Sign Up! #OOC #Sign Up #Slice of life #Adventure #MLP Only

This the the first OOC Thread for a new MLP Only Roleplay! Which also will be the first MLP only RP that's been on /rp/ for awhile. I have been working to get this set up and prepared for awhile so buckle in while i explain the setting for this new RP, "Simply Pony"

"Simply Pony" takes place in the town of Crossroads. It is a small town located far east of Vanhoover (A major city) and just a hair north of Galloping Gorge! While this has been a small and secluded community for a long time as primarily a pit stop for travelers wanting to explore the old roads, it has recently found itself in a state of rapid economic growth! When the Crystal Empire reappeared, the little town of Crossroads was was sitting on what soon became a major trade route between the western half of Equestria and the Crystal Empire. With their newfound economic boom, the more prominent members of the community have sent out flyers all across Equestria, advertising their long ignored home as the newest boom town! While plowing up the land, the citizens have also discovered the ancient ruins of a town far older than their own.

So there it is, in summary. If you have any further detailed questions about the RP itself or the setting, please feel free to ask here and i will do my best to get back to you ASAP!

Simply Pony: Welcome to Crossroads! #Canon: Simply Pony #Slice of Life #Adventure #MLP Only #Chill #Open

The town of Crossroads. Despite it's particularly low population, the town has a long history spanning back hundreds of years. Located just a hair north of Galloping Gorge, it's only visitors were the rare Geologist and even more rare thrill seeker. Not that it bothered the citizens much. Most of them preferred the quite of their small town to that of the big city Vanhoover to the west. Yet in all that time it never managed to garner enough attention to grow. Until recently.

With the reappearance of the Crystal Empire, the quiet town found itself right in the heart of newly formed trade routes between the western half of Equestria and the Crystal Empire. For the first time in hundreds of years, Crossroads was living up to it's namesake. Trade caravans began coming back and forth along the ancient road. Tourists passing on their way to see the new lands, began to take notice of the small town. Finally, Crossroads was getting attention. Much to the chagrin of some of it's citizens.

While some loathed the sudden boost in traffic, some of the more forward thinking and business savvy decided to act. The local general store expanded into a warehouse trade depot, the abandoned mansion became a hotel, the acres of land passed down for generations was being divided up and ready to sell for new homes and businesses. With all the excitement of their newfound economic boom, many of the oldest citizens moved away, desiring to live in a quieter setting than what their home was becoming. Some of them stayed to fight against the overwhelming wave of inevitable change fruitlessly.

It has been many moons since then and while the more prominent members of the community were excited to expand, they overlooked one detail. Few knew they were there. In an effort to ensure the expansion of their small town, the Mayor, along with a few others, invested in an salespony and travel agent to advertise the town to the world. Cheap land, ground floor investments, a natural wonder nearby, a chance at a fresh start. That is what Crossroads is for, a chance for a fresh start.

The first train hauling passenger cars pulled into the newly built Crossroads station. Time for a fresh start.

BLN #63: Gender Bender Edition #Canon: Better Layton Never #IC #Ask/Invite

Well well well, seems everything is gotten quite stale around here. As a deity of Chaos I ought to shake things up a bit, it's my job after all.

>An unseen and unheard individual of imaginary nature would address the Mad Goddess. The Mad Goddess, she suffered no one intruding on her position.

What seems so boring?

Well yes conspiracies of family murder are quite exciting.

True, the ransom of the children is quite an entertaining affair.

Always a surprise when countries and retail stores fall out of the sky. But that happens all the time, many beings and places of myth and story appear here, there, and everywhere. Size doesn't always matter! Though it certainly helps elsewhere~

Ducks? Really? Now that would be an entertaining event, but what are the possibilities of ducks invading from the future. Lets be realistic here, the Jester is on the job there. Like he'd slip up that much. Not without a banana peel.

These are hardly related to the stagnation I speak of. Everyone is so boring being the same sex all the time. And they must be tired of it themselves, so why not do them a favour and elevate them of that monotony?

How? Why Wabbajack of course!

>And just like that, the Mystical Staff of Randomness let out an all engulfing flash of light.

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."

BLN #62: The End Is Neigh Edition! (62-2 The End Has Happened) #Canon: Better Layton Never#IC#Ask/Invite#ItKeepsHappening
Come one! Come all! Feast your eyes upon the wonders of a world far separated from reality. A world where colorful pastel talking ponies are only one of many oddities taken for granted. In this world exist many who are alien to it. Some who have come here intentionally. Others, "accidentally" or by "chance". What a silly notion, that anything would happen by pure coincidence.

But be warned my friends, once you have stepped into this world, you must be prepared to accept the responsibility. For out of all that exists here, there is not a single one who is not important. All will leave a permanent impact. So choose you next moves carefully my friends, for the choices you make, may be your eternal legacy!

Monsters in the closet? Pfft! We got this!


Welcome to The Swirlies! A place where your wildest dreams can come true!


Tales have been told for millennia, of monsters lurking around every dark alley, beneath beds, and in the backs of closets. They have always been thought of to be nothing more than stories-old wives tales of bad dreams that linger on after a child has woken screaming from underneath their covers.

To most people that is simply what they are: mere stories and phantoms of a child's frightening imaginations gone mad. And yet, night after night, thousands of children all over the globe go missing. From rooms, playgrounds, alleys, cars...any where that shadows seem to lurk, and adults forget to check. It has been going on for so long that no one seems to pay much mind to it any more. A missing child was no more unusual than an unfortunate death of some fool in a big city, and the authorities often waste little time attempting to recover them. Parents and families grieve for their lost ones for a brief time, and then carry on, content to put it in the past. After all, it was just another part of life; a part that many wished to simply sweep under the carpet.

But not the children.

To the children, the monsters that lurked in their closets and under their beds were no less real than the teddy bears they clung to their chests, and growing up seems like a game of survival where the odds are always against you. While many choose to obey their parents and go about their daily routines of a simple child's life, where adventures never brave past the sandbox, some choose to live the life of a soldier. A protector of the night.

When all the good boys and girls have gone to bed, after all the lights have been switched off for the night, these brave young worriers sneak from their beds and creep down stairs, across halls, and through windows. They have sworn an oath, took up a silent call to protect their brothers and sisters in arms, for they are the only ones who can, and for every monster slain, it means one less child being drug from their cozy dreamland and into a place of nightmares...

All rural areas have light sides, but Canterlot is certainly an exception. On the right side of the tracks, few things appear to be bright and warm; the sunny weather being but a question mark shallowing the ground of community and overt courage.

The earth remains the same though, eventually as you stop at the newly installed door under the plaque saying, in dim thin letters Donut Bar

Outside, away from the tables and chairs fresh off the factory, with their smoothness and sterility and gleaming metal, you can once again get yourself wet, eat something cool and continue out in the sun. There's even a contemporary home theatre system - someone placed the new dull 'A' from the sign inside away from it. Above, the natural-looking metal donut fit in just right with the lively décor.

Here, none are welcome nor accepted – after of which, benevolence does occur, but obfuscated by a the sign reading “Medicine bin away from the window, take it out or they will put you in. Warm."

Off the whiteboard, some may lose what appears to be a proverb of wisdom:

Tales of the Unikon: Celestia Town #Open#Canon: TotU #Adventure#Dark #Violence#General#Normal

The locomotive steamed north, passing mountainous ravines and forest lined gorges, moving up towards the snow covered areas of what was the Unikon territories. Snow covered each rock and tree, the rivers below roaring with shards of ice tumbling in the torrents. Usually, it was the charge of the Weather Bureau in other parts of Equestria to handle such matters, with Pegasi scheduling these things in advanced, telling ponies in the area to be wary of what storms were to come, what was a perfect day to go out fishing and the like. That wasn't the case out in the Unikon territories; the storms were constant, and the result of a very angry tribe of Thunderbirds that made flight and viable crop growing an impossibility outdoors. Not to mention, forcing most food, water, and supplies to be transported by rail from the southern areas of Equestria.

The train sped on, chugging uphill, the headlamp brilliantly lighting the frozen bands of iron that served as its guides. The familiar timbers bound together and standing upright were soon seen, the glistening lights like stars in the skies coming into view. The mournful cry of the whistle was heard as the donkey at the controls bit and tugged at the pull. Those upon the wall began to open those massive doors bearing the symbol of Celestia and Luna upon them. The locomotive let out another cry as it chuffed through the gates, hauling a heavy load of freight and passengers, the caboose's lanterns swinging as the train soon passed the gates. The ponies upon the wall soon closed the gates as quickly as they could, the loud clang ringing in the air as the lock was soon heard. This was the mining town of Celestia.

The locomotive soon pulled into the station, various trains already at the platforms waiting. The many ponies, mules, and donkeys scurried about, moving crates, equipment, and luggage with them. They crowded the busy station, moving about their way. Several waited until the first train was empty to begin loading into it while the locomotive was detached, turned around, and put back at the front of the other end of the train. Many others moved onto the other platforms for the narrow gauge trains headed for the other two mining towns of Luna and Twilight, as well as the mining company train headed for the gold mine just up the mountain.

A map at the platform showed the only viable saloon and inn to stay at was The Rail Spike, which seemed to sit in the center of Mane Street. Just next to the station was the Celestia Mining Company office joined up with their Railroad office, and north of that sat the Militia's main office and armory, as well as the bank. Homes dotted around behind Mane through winding little streets every other shop.

Seemed most anything anypony needed was here: Grocers, General Goods, Blacksmith, Gunsmith, Pharmacy, Doctor and Barber's office, even a book store. Other than that, there wasn't much to this town other than the slick black mud, slush, and snow covered wooden boards serving as walks.

Those wishing to live will find that signing up for the militia is almost a requirement if they don't plan on working with the shop-owners, railroad, or mining company.

Welcome to the frozen north lands known only as the Unikon territories.

Donut Bar: AMERICA! Edition #canon#Cross-canon#Chill #Lighthearted#Shipping#General #Semi-serious#Crazy #Courtsey/Common Sense/ Fun

All AMERICAS have dark sides, and AMERICA! 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]AMERICAS 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 AMERICAS .

Here, all are welcome and accepted – so long as AMERICAS does not occur, as indicated by a the sign reading “AMERICAS 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.

Void Hotel Special Event Take Two #Chill [#

The Multiverse. From inside, it was infinite beyond measure, with every possibility and impossibility flitting about within.

But even infinity has a boundary, strange enough. And what could be beyond everything...

But nothing?

Sometimes, there are unfortunate souls that reality itself seems to forget. Sometimes their universes simply lose grip, other times their entire home realities were undone by forces unknown.

They are cast from everything...

And surprisingly find not nothing, but a hotel.

Run by a mysterious figure calling themselves "Cameron", this place is home to the outcast, the forgotten, and the misfit alike.

This is the Void Hotel (and Bar), and it might just be your home now. The beds are warm, the drinks are free, and the company is... eclectic, but friendly nonetheless.

Come on in. We'll find you a room in no time and you can get settled.

Old OCs preferred. This is where they wait to be reimagined/rewritten, and you can make that part of their story in the thread.

Ponychan OOC Board Good Evening Ponychan Roleplayers.

As most of you are probably aware /ooc/ has been declining in use for quite sometime, due to most people have switched over to primarily using discord for most of their canon stuff.

In doing so it makes it significantly harder for people to join or even approach new canons, and makes the board more unused then it has previously been.

Due to these factors, we've decided to fuse /ooc/ back into /rp/. So all ooc threads can be made here from now on, in light of the mass move to Discord, we've also created a discord server specifically for Ponychans RP community. This server will have a channel per individual canon, along with a general chat for people to use at their own discretion to talk and plan.

Discord invite: https://discord.gg/MK7U2dj

Welcome to Ponychan's /rp/ board!
If you have any questions about this stick or board, feel free to post them here, if you have any questions about rules, please get into contact with a moderator.

If you have any questions for a specific roleplay, please ask in their /ooc/ thread.

If you're looking for the RP discord its here.

Discord invite: https://discord.gg/MK7U2dj

The sitewide rules apply to /rp/, and in addition:
● Posts and threads should be centered around roleplay, planning for roleplay or discussion of roleplay
● Posts should contribute to the thread's topic and abide by the general theme started
● Post and play within the boundaries set out in the OP or the canon being played in
● Play with the enjoyment of all members of the thread in mind - not just your own!

You may make use of the "spoiler" function for OOC (out-of-character) text to ask questions, raise concerns or issues, or chat outside the game. The spoiler function used with [ ?][ /?] tags (or ctrl+s), and text inside will appear like this. You may also make use of the "hide" function for longer sections of OOC text. It is used with the [ h][ /h] tags (or ctrl+h), and will appear like this:
Text inside is hidden.

You may also edit your posts to correct mistakes or if change something based on a post you didn't see before you posted, for example. Simply check the checkbox for the post of yours you wish to edit, and in the lower right hand corner of the page you will see an "Edit" button. Click it, and you will be able to edit your post.
Dice can be rolled by using a dice roll tag, like this: [ 2d6]. The first number is the number of dice, and the second number is the number of sides per die. [ 2d6] will result in something like Roll 2d6 = 3

Please bring up any issues or concerns you have with the thread OP prior to jumping in to a game.
If you need to get in touch with an OP but they are unavailable, feel free to contact a moderator for help.

The Tag System
We advise you to make use of the tag system in your OP posts for setting out quickly identifiable RP types for viewers to see.
You can tag by entering [ #whatever tag you desire] in the top of the OP. This will also allow people to search on a page for types of RP they are interested in.
A list of the recommended tags:

#Open - open to anyone to join at any time
#Closed - not accepting new players, a private RP
#Ask/Invite - ask a current player or be invited before playing
#Canon: (canon name) - an existing story arc that should be followed

#Adventure - action and story based
#Chill - relaxed and playful, lighthearted
#Dark - focused on serious, dark themes
#Violence - fighting and battle will be involved
#Shipping - focused on, or welcoming of shipping and relationships

#Pony - show-relevant characters, topics and stories only in these RPs
#General - any type of characters, topics and story, ponies or not
#Non-pony - non-pony characters, topics and stories only in these RPs

Style and Limits
#Free-form - casual roleplaying with no set mechanics.
#Pen and Paper - set mechanics. characterized by rulebooks, statsheets and 3d6s

Non-RP Threads

You may also use/create whatever tag you wish, if the above doesn't quite cover what you need. You can also mix and match the tags based on the RP you are starting, with the above tags and any descriptive ones you want that would suit the RP. A descriptive set of tags will help players find RPs that will interest them.
