#Open #Canon: Dark Moon #Series: The Outpost #Dark #Violence #General #Power Limit #Semi-serious #Sign-up

Greetings Ponychan! This is a side-thread of the Dark Moon canon from MLPchan, open to a new audience! More specifically, this is the Dark Moon OOC, the Corporate Cafeteria! Dark Moon is a cyberpunk canon set after the Corporate War and the collapse of the Equestrian Government. The Princesses are gone, and the Elements of Harmony have been missing for almost twenty years. A surge of mysterious technology from another world jumpstarted Equestria's development of science and technology, but it came at a cost. The world has changed, and magic is slipping away. In the chaos, a number of powerful, multinational corporations sprang up to take control of the chaotic world, only to throw it into chaos again with the Corporate War. Almost ten years later, the stage of the world is set for conflict once again...

If you want to do a more established signup, this thread is here for you! Discuss characters with the managers, ask questions about the lore (Trust me, we know way more about it than the Lore Doc can tell you and can probably explain it more succintly) and just generally chat about things. Any questions can be posed here, to either myself (Nevermore), or to the sub-managers (Cyan Hide, Ace_Noir, and Conch Shell).

The world is fucked!

If that wasn't bold enough for yall knuckleheads out there the world has been fucked.

Some fucking nerd herders gathered up some scientist to develop some new advanced cat nip or some shit instead they infected our beloved pussies with a unique strain fungus. Turned them into some rabid beasts and shit and well it only took a matter of days before it spread to the equine race of this fair dirt ball we call home.

While we're at this why is it when some viral outbreak happens it spreads faster than a prom date with herpes anyways?

Anyways it wasn't long till this city just gave up and resorted to rioting and looting and all the other post apocalyptic cliches we see in all sorts of the media. Even the great law enforcement and military horses couldn't fix this broken egg of a supposed utopia.

Well I was always in love with zombie apocalyptic worlds and seen that this RP had little attention. I do have two questions though.
First off, do you think I could swap my Dex with my Wis? For two reasons, one being that having completely random stats can really off put people. With most stat rolling, you role for the numbers then apply them to each stat to build the character in the direction you want them to go. It also creates the problem, as mine has, of inconstancy in character. Really, a fisher with a Dex of 1 seems silly.

And secondly, should I hop right in or wait till you and Seras get done in the arcade?

Sure you can swap the stats no problem or even re roll,and I don't think Seras would mind go ahead and post. Like i said we are bit slow here so if you don't mind that welcome.

#Ask/invite #Canon: Maretropolis (name pending) #Fresh start #Lighthearted #Ponies

I'm in the alpha stages of conceptualizing a canon based around the comic book world featured in Power Ponies. Lots of details need to be worked out, but at the moment I'm just testing the waters to see who would be interested in being a part of the canon, and what they would want out of a canon like this.

Myself, I would prefer the canon to be very personal. Yes there will of course be fighting and heroism, but I'd also like the players and characters to have lots of time to wind down, get to know each other, and have lives in the strange city of Maretropolis. Of course if you just want to fight (or commit) crime, that shouldn't be a problem either. As for combat, personally I dislike using dice rolls, but if you and another person want to duke it out with dice, then it's not against the rules.

I imagine that as for characters, the Power Ponies would be the "big" heroes of the setting, which means players should have powers and talents that don't quite cut it compared to them. The same goes for any player villains, of course. Teaming up is encouraged! I will be playing a team of six major villains, but I won't be throwing them at players often or anything.

So I really have no idea how this will play out or wind up, but I think it's worth a shot! So who wants to get in on this and be a hero, or a villain?

A film canister begins rolling somewhere behind your head and a picture begins to develop on the tatty projection screen in front of you.



“Greetings my esteemed friend and welcome to the ground floor of Equestria’s greatest triumph. I am the architect of this genius, N. Ausizzist, here to tell you about the city that spits in the face of hubris.”


The picture shifts into a sleek pony dressed in frills and silk beckoning you to a sparkling metallic city.


“The royals said it could not be done, that it should not be done, that to do so was a violation of nature itself, but progress, my dear ponies, progress most overcome petty resistance. So it was when I built my beautiful Lusitania.”

Hello and welcome to /ooc/!

This sticky serves as an introduction as well as a place for The Canon Compendium

Out of character (OOC) roleplay discussion is meant to belong here. That means roleplay organising, recruitment, and general ooc threads for specific roleplays on /rp/. It can also be used for character building/critique and brainstorming for locations, and various other roleplay related necessities, such as general writing for rp technique.

Please keep general chatter threads in /chat/, and actual roleplaying threads in /rp/.If anyone asks you (even anonymously) to move the roleplay to the roleplay thread, please do. Spontaneous roleplay, such as that often found in current OOC threads, will be allowed here, but please do try to keep as much as you can in the correct board.

If you are interested in learning about roleplaying, we have prepared some advice guides which can be found below, and are happy to help you get into the groove of things and help you understand what makes a "good" roleplayer. Various help documents will be linked here for you to read. Looking over them is not required for you to get help in here, but would make our jobs much easier and make your learning experience much smoother.

Hello! Welcome. I'll be willing to point you to some canons that'll peak your interests.

Pretty much around here you just need to look for an rp that you would enjoy to be in, but there are some you need to sign up for in an OOC, so it would be good if you checked /ooc/ as well.

It's just a camping trip, right? Wrong. This is the once-a-year Cutie Mark Crusader camping trip meetup, hosted by the original Cutie Mark Crusaders themselves, along with the current Head Crusader, the most adventurous pony ever to live, Brave Heart! For many young Crusaders, this is the highlight of the year, a chance to meet new friends and spent a few nights in a massive tent-village in the Everfree Forest!

<This is mostly to establish a canon, get the characters introduced, and HAVE A GOOD TIME. OCs and Canon Characters are needed. Good luck, crusaders!

Equestria has never been, and will never be, a normal society. Magic runs rampant throughout the streets whilst cities float in the clouds. But, in some parts of the world, magic and the unnatural flourish more than usual. An example of one of these places is Hooferville, which has been a rift from this world to the next ever since Starswirl the Bearded opened it and gifted Equestria with even more magical power than the land already possessed. This has also made it a popular place for the supernatural to be appearing. Angels, demons, and ethereal beings come through this rift sometimes and dwell among the residents. As of late, there has been a string of disappearances of young fillies and stallions who do not have their cutie marks. This is where your story begins.
---------------------------------------------------------------
In this roleplay, conflict will be stat-based. You will roll a D20 four times (If it lands on anything less than eight, disregard that number and roll again.). Then, you may put those four numbers in the desired stats. This is a major part of character creation. The stats you must put your four results in are:

Charisma:
(This stat determines how much other characters like you. This will be used in non-violent situations to persuade a character one way or to avoid any sort of conflict with the character.)

Wisdom:
(Wisdom affects your character's knowledge about the world around them, this is also a key part of avoiding conflict. This will also determine the effectiveness of your spells in general.)

Strength:
