Hey you! Welcome to our lovely board! Like Quinch said, there aren't really any rules, it just depends on whose thread you're in. The only maid rules is the site rules, plus no heavy gore [pics or writing]. We can get away with some pretty dark stuff, but don't go too into the ewy gewy guts flyin every which way type stuff.

unless of course your a master at implying it with a simple phrase that doesn't include the details XD

Ask any questions you have, other wise just look at the sticky at the top of /rp/, and this board! /ooc/

Ok, I don't know how many of you invest belief into the whole astrology thing, but IF YOU DID, what sign do you think your character would have? I've honestly been putting some hard thought into this and I can't figure my characters out.

What do you guys think your characters would have for an astrological star sign?

My sister is a pisces. She's a bit of a control freak, but she can be silly as hell when she feels good and she's a great listener. She also loves gossip and yoga. XD

That sound anything like your character?
>> No. 457116
She /can/ be a little controlling/ silly from time to time. She's a great listener, yes. She really likes to look at the perspective of others. I don't know about gossip, but she does like her exercise.

I don't know. I guess they sound a little similar. I didn't get too far into detail with this though, so naturally she wouldn't act like her sign unless I coincidentally got it right.

#Canon: Donut Bar #DiscussionOnly #Gacha Gacha Gacha Pon #Pon Pon Gacha Pon

A mysterious gachapon machine is about to appear in the Donut Bar, dispensing quality figurines of various Donut Bar characters for all to collect and enjoy! The price is simply one Gachabit; if you're lucky, you could win big! But first, it needs rules. Rules, and lots and lots of characters!

If you are a member of the Donut Bar canon, submit your character to be entered into the gachapon collection! Decide whether your character will be Common, Uncommon, Rare, or Ultra Rare. Most likely no one will argue about your decision (I hope). Highly exclusive Platinum figurines may also exist!

Rules (subject to discussion and change):
•Every day, each player (not character) magically obtains three silver Gachabits. They are the same size and shape as bits, but are not legal tender.
•Players can distribute their Gachabits to their characters however they please, but if they are not distributed to characters, they disappear at the start of the next day.
•Gachabits can be saved and bartered freely, but only by characters, not players. Gachabits physically exist and can be stolen!
•Only one Gachabit can be put into the machine at a time. There is no way to alter your chances of getting a rare figurine. As a device existing partially in meta-canon, it is unaffected by any attempt to thwart its capricious distribution of plastic figures.

Let the submission/discussion BEGIN!

Thank god I had the tab open

Now I do remember there being a Fallout Type RP about a year or two ago so I think it might be time for another. This won't really be biased on the fan fic as much as just the idea of ponies in a post apocalyptic Equestria about 50 years after there was a nuclear war between ponies and zebras that had just pushed the entire world into hell. As hellish as that sounds I do not want to have to have this be a thread where it's all serious and long post, no, I want this to be a canon where people can have fun with it mostly. So no super long stat chart, skills, or other abilities that you need to account for. Though there will be a few things you will need to keep tract of here and there that'll hopefully not be too much for everyone.

Now keep in mind this is my first time actually making a canon and I will understand if no one wants to deal with someone with the lack of experience but, I'm aiming this to be a canon not ran but just one, but by everyone who feels the want to add a story line to this thread. I will also have a few friends help me out here and there, and I will of course try my best to help get things straight.

The main character (main characters being the one you are going to play if you decided to join this RP) are all going to start in a Stable (Vault) and will be, for some odd reason, forced out into the harshness of the wasteland and either work together to survive every day or decide to fend for them selves and disregard their fellow stable brothers. keep in mind that everyone in a stable knows everyone and has know everyone since birth/when they first entered the stable before the bombs actually fell. So you're going to have account for that when making a character, so know that they will know other characters closely as well. Unless you're going to play and antisocial ninny. Which works too.

The Stable is a 5 level underground bunker under the Applewood mountain in Los Pegasus fit to hold about 250 ponies with supplies for all those ponies for 60 years. The bottom level being where the generators, air filters, water filters, and so on are. 4th and 3rd floor is w

>Begin one time intro

First of all, hello again and hello for the first time to those who have never seen this thread before. I once made a promise that I wouldn't let this thread die. A promise I promptly turned around and didn't keep. I said that every day I would come here and post a new question or idea to keep things going. I was foolish to push for the change that I did. It resulted in some damage that can never be undone, I know this. And for that, I am sorry. I hope that with this I can start taking the first steps to maybe repairing some of what I did. Without further ado, let's move on to the meat of the thread.

“What is this place, filled with so many wonders? Casting its spell, of which I am now under. Squirrels in the trees and the cute little bunnies. Birds flying free and the bees with their honey. Oh, what a magical place. And I owe it all to the pegasus race. If I knew the ground had so much up its sleeve, I’d have come here sooner, and never leave. Yes, I love everything!” ~ Fluttershy
From how Fluttershy describes the grounds of Equestria, many would conclude that it is indeed a marvelous place to be. Or, at least, it was. The safety and well-being of Equestria has been threatened many times, whether from Discord, Nightmare Moon, or the evil changeling Queen Chrysalis. However, one of Equestria’s princesses always managed to step in and save the day. But that’s changed. Ponies are no longer sure if they can rely on their princesses for safety. Not since Princess Cadence disappeared… and was found dead three days later, her face frozen in an expression of fright and terror. Cause of death? Unknown.
Princess Celestia still hasn’t recovered from the loss. No longer the regal ruler she once was, Princess Celestia spends most of her time locked away in her room in the Canterlot Palace. Her mood has even started to affect the sun itself, taking on a darker tint. Princess Luna struggles to calm the population and prevent any mass hysteria. Princess Twilight pours over endless books in Princess Celestia and Princess Luna’s old castle in the Everfree Forest, looking for an explanation to Cadence’s death. Shining Armour hasn’t been seen in months. The average pony’s life is no longer peaceful, but full of fear. After all, if an alicorn princess

Surely, us being the MLP FIM fans we are, we all remember MLP FIM season 2 episode 11, or overall episode 37, "Hearth's Warming Eve." In this episode, The Mane Six put on a play about the creation of Equestria, how the three races of unicorn, pegasus, and earth pony came together to create the harmonious nation we see today.
Pinkie Pie played Chancellor Puddinghead, the leader of the earth pony tribe. Applejack played Smart Cookie, Chancellor Puddinghead's secretary.
Rarity played Princess Platinum, the daughter of the Unicorn King who acts as his representative and is by extension, the leader of the unicorn pony tribe. Twilight Sparkle played Clover the Clever, an adviser to Princess Platinum.
Rainbow Dash played Commander Hurricane, the leader of the pegasus pony tribe. Fluttershy played Private Pansy, a subordinate of Commander Hurricane.
But Hearth's Warming Eve didn't tell the whole story of how this noble nation was formed. A few years after the events shown in Hearth's Warming Eve, things still weren't going as planned. The nation still hadn't reached it's full potential. There were still numerous amounts of uncharted lands, food shortages were common, and it seemed that every day was a competition to just survive.
However, we can change all that. We can bring Equestria to the nation it is today with our own hooves, claws, wings, whatever you may have. It's all up to write the history of the formation of Equestria.

The Story

Equestria was nearly in turmoil when two ponies took up the task to become heralds so that they may find a just ruler for their nation. The reason for this was because the Alicorn race was extincted about 4,000 years ago. But how did Equestria suffer such a heavy loss? In Princess Twilight's she was the last Alicorn. The others died peacefully in their prosperous rule and no other pony became an Alicorn, leaving Twilight to be the sole monarch. She however grew with old age and her last years Equestria was under siege by a powerful foe. It started during the Summer Sun Celebration when suddenly the southern border was attacked by the dragons. The military was caught off guard and lost most of the southern territory. A desperate draft was called and all able bodied ponies were either called to farm since a lot of agricultural towns were lost, or were made part of a special army called Redemption. Its sole purpose was to attack and defend against dragons and it became the largest army in Equestrian history. You have been drafted and trained by Redemption and you will take part in series of events that started the Northern Kingdom rp.

Special Notes

Weaponry that you are allowed to use swords, bows, crossbows, things of that nature. You are allowed to use firearms but this is limited to muskets and flintlock pistols.

You are allowed to pick any race from the show (even a dragon but you have to be on the pony's side) except for Alicorns.

The rp is a mix of Honor's system and battle system. Everything is Honor's but whenever a battle has started, you have to roll a 1d10 when attacking an enemy. Rolling an even number would mean success, odds will mean failure.

4,000 years have passed since the Alicorns ruled Equestria and now without them the nation slowly degraded with lawlessness. The most influential ponies had gathered to decide upon a solution to restore the monarchy and bring peace to Equestria once again. Months of debate and arguing as to whom shall receive such a power until finally they somewhat found an answer to their problem. It was discovered in ancient texts that were brought over when Equestria. It was stated that the Heralds shall travel back to the frozen land to seek enlightenment of great magnitude and will return back and it would be made clear as to who will rule the land. News of this spread so mercenaries, knights, any who had a sense of adventure had made the trek up north but were never to be heard from again. All of Equestria had begun to lose hope and the number of those who tried this legend dwindled as time passed until barely any traveled north. Now you have decided to test your luck and make the journey to the Northern Kingdom.


The rp will follow the honors system so be realistic when it comes to combat and things of that nature. Speaking of combat no one will have to worry about being killed and no longer being able to continue but you will encounter extremely dangerous situation. I would also like to note that pvp isn't recommended but is still allowed, remember everyone here will be working towards the same goal so it would be easier to work together. Also I'll do my best to make sure that everyone who signs up for this will have the chance to interact with the story.

The unexplored territory of Celestia and Luna managing a shadowy organization that is slowly encroaching on the entire world. As it, possibly, moves forward it purports to bring freedom and love to each of the countries it conquers. The organization would not overtly do this but moves through secretive channels as it plays a game of chess with its own constituents. The question is, what stakes are the princesses playing for and why?

An introspective look into the life of a pony consumed by his own inner demons, as he moves around Equestria chasing a dream that died long ago. What sort of pony would give up his dreams and ambitions to search for some undefined thing? What does his Cutie mark mean? and why is he constantly followed by waves of destruction?

Dogged by the government that wants to hunt him down and stick his head on pointy stick, Louis Expy the Sixteenth abdicates the throne of Prance to revolutionaries. He seeks asylum with Princess Celestia, who cannot refuse due to a royal precedent. She now has to deflect the dastardly plots of the revolutionaries as they jockey for the privilege of being the one to liberate Louis head from his shoulders and try to keep the king of a nation whose prior life consisted of the decadence normally found only in wet dreams in Canterlot castle without letting the media screw her over.

You wake up.
All you can see is darkness. Left. Right. Up. Down. A never ending black. The floor beneath you is cold. Hard. Mist likelysome sort of metal. The air is dusty and the area is small enough to make you feel uncomfortable. Your alone ina dark, black box with no exit in sight. Then...
The box starts to move up like a elevator.
It stops. The ceiling of the box slowly starts to open...

Name: Jacob
Race: Earth Pony
Short Bio Summary: Jacob one day decided to explore ancient catacombs and dusty temples to obtain priceless artifacts that he would sell to make a living. He did this for a year or so and was pretty happy with his life. He happened upon an orb on one of his explorations of a temple that had been long abandoned. He unwittingly reached out for it and suddenly he felt strange once he touched and suddenly it felt as if the room was spiraling around him. He now awakens inside this black box not knowing where he is.
Personality: Somewhat brave and adventurous he is determined to have a nice life but he sometimes feel it is purposeless since it only benefits himself. He is often resourceful and is always willing to help out a friend.
