Better Layton Never Thread #65: Moving Forward Ugh, really? Do I have to? You know I'm busy right now- Y'know what, fine, I'll do it.

>A loud high pitched noise is heard over the microphone, the sounds of other objects and papers also being moved about as whoever it was moved into position on the other end.

Okay are you kidding me? Really? I have to read this? No don't give me that you wrote it! I'm not gonna- ugh. You even put my name down like that! I am not reading this!

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.

>Era Blurb

"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.

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

LLLLADIES AND GENTLEMEN, THE JOEL MARAVALLE SHOW!

>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.


"WHAT DID YOU SAY ABOUT LADY SHIJOU YOU MOTHERFU--"

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.

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

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


>A) 5


>B) 7

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.


Hm?
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!

Donut Bar: Dogs Edition #Open#Canon: Donut Bar#Pseudo-canon#Cross-canon#Chill #Lighthearted#Shipping#General #Semi-serious#Crazy #Courtsey/Common Sense/ Fun

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
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l-7lvINrYPw

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:

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!

WELCOME, TO THE SIXTY-SECOND THREAD FOR BETTER LAYTON NEVER!

WHERE IMAGINATION BECOMES REALITY!

Where Am I Now? (Please forgive me. It's been a LONG time since I was here last)

> after a humiliating defeat by that annoying girl, Ica found herself waking up out in the forest. She didn't know if she was close to a town or not. She didn't even recognize the area. However, she does know the snow falling from nowhere above her and the frozen trees and landscape was caused by her subconscious anger. First she loses her so-called leader, then her faux sisters, now she's been blown far from that accursed school. Ica (Ice-Ah) had very light skin and frosty, dark hair with white streaks. Her pale, green eyes keep looking to the sky, knowing she can't fight her own anger and losing to that brat for, what feels like, the billionth time

"... I hate her... so, so much..."

Monsters in the closet? Pfft! We got this!

~


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


Literally.


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...

Donut Bar: Pingu Edition #Open#Canon: Donut Bar#Pseudo-canon#Cross-canon#Chill #Lighthearted#Shipping#General #Semi-serious#Crazy #Courtsey/Common Sense/ Fun

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
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l-7lvINrYPw

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:
EAT AT JOE'S
YOUR AD HERE

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

Donut Bar: Rendition Edition #Open #Canon: Donut Bar #Pseudo-canon #Cross-canon #Chill #Lighthearted #Shipping #General #Semi-serious #Crazy #Courtsey/Common Sense/ Fun

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
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l-7lvINrYPw [Embed]

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:
DRINK AT JABRALTER'S
LEAVE AREA BLANK

The bar IS auto-staff, but not for long.

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.

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 there 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.
