#Open #Canon: Clockhooves #Semi-serious #Sign-up #Character #Supernatural #Steampunk-ish

Before the time of the Celestial rulers, there were the Clockwork rulers. One sister who ruled the old age, and one sister who rang in the new one. Times were different, everything ran on a powerful artifact entitled the Clockwork Mechanism. This linked all the bits and bobs in this land together, and the artifact is now only held in The Kingdom of Clockhooves. A town not belonging to the old age or the new one, a town of innovation and culture. But you, having to live there, noticed some odd things going on in town. Curious, you decide to investigate. This is where your story begins.

Welcome to Clockhooves! If you want to join, please create a character with the template below. Be sure to give me contact information, as since I need to assign your character a role in the story that will allow them to do one special action per an act. If you want to play as a canon character, please contact my Skype. (My Skype name is ectoAlchemist)

>> No. 456241
Well, it looks interesting. Here's my sheet:
Name: Wrex
Race: Bat Pony
Backstory: Him and his large family were hated wherever they went, mainly because they drink blood. They were accepted into Luna's gaurd, but Wrex hated it. He flew away, and decided to seek fame. He became a treasure hunter, and a succesful one at that. The only problem was the fame part. Numerous rales sprung up about the vampire treasure hunter, and ponies grew afraid of old ruins and temples. This meaning less competition, Wrex went with it. He sticks to the shadows and wears a dark cloak. Wrex can also fly moderately fast.
Personality: He doesn't talk to people if he doesn't have to. He also needs blood of any type to survive. He's always up for an adventure.
Description: Wrex is dark grey with dark purple hair. His cutie mark is a gold crown.
Element: Dark

There are no such things as ghosts, right? Maybe, but lately in ponyville, mysterious things have been happening. Unexplainable things. A mare, murdered in the night. Everything in a local shop dissapearing at once. Pale, ghastly ponies seen wondering the streets. Events leaving everyone in ponyville scared to go out at night. That's where you come in. Fliers posted all over ponyville requesting assistance on the matter. It pays well, so you decide to go to the meeting. Little do you know, things are going to get a lot weirder...
So, let's see if this works out. This is going to be a paranormal investigation roleplay, if you haven't already guessed.
1. Every roll will be in a 1d20 format, unless otherwise specified.
2. Yes, it is possible for you to die, but I will only do this if excessive stupidity is involved
3. On that note, dont be stupid. A little laughter is fine, but this is going to be at lest semi-serious.
4. Please post a sheet in the following format:

This is a Manehatten RP, about a group of characters living in an apartment complex.
Loose attachment to the show's canon, being in a different city means no interaction with the main characters so this will mostly be fanon. It will be slice of life and lighthearted.

There are 7 apartment buildings, all defined by a different color. There is Green, Gold, Red, Blue, Purple, Yellow, and Black.
Please note that Gold and Red are full.
>Pic is a blueprint of each apartment.

>Also, if you are still paying attention to the rp, please post saying that you are. The rp has taken a bit of a break, so I don't know who is still paying attention.

I have an rp canon called From the Beginning if you're interested in a story based rp. If you're more into casual rp with a bit of randomness then you could try aos. Aos has pretty much everything in it but is considered slice of life. I'm sure you could do well in both if you signed up for tuem . just look for the ooc

#Open #Ask/invite #Canon: TECC #Fresh start #Adventure #Chill #Lighthearted #FiM-only #Normal

Hello hello!

This is the official OOC and Sign Up thread for "The Emerald City Chronicles" or "TECC" for short. This is something a couple of fantastic individuals and I have been brewing up behind the scenes for quite some time now, and I'm very proud to announce it and get it out into Ponychan for the general public.

What is TECC about?
The Emerald City Chronicles is what I like to call a "What if" scenario. While many other canons deal with drastic changes to the story, such as Zombies, No Mane 6, or even the Mane 6's defeat, TECC deals with subtle tweaks instead. The basis of the canon was founded on a group of people wishing to get out of the Ponyville setting more, so we threw the center of the world on a liberal metropolis, Seaddle, based on the real life Seattle, Washington, of course, already giving us that wonderful 'fresh start' feeling of breaking away from the norm.

So, since we changed that history, we figured, why not base the entire canon on such freedoms? They say there's an infinite number of parallel universes out there with an infinite number of possible outcomes, and this is one of them for ponies. For starters, the apple family now runs a chain of successful Cider Cafes renown throughout the city. But that's just the tip of the iceberg. You can take any canon character and tweak their history or experiences into any way you like. You can be fast talking, auctioneer Big Mac, DJ. Octavia, Rule 63 Lyra, whatever you want! We wanted to deliver a canon that expanded on creative liberties while staying withing the theme and world the show has given us.

On that note, the races involved are what we call "Show Plausible.

I was hoping to create a new rp thread and I wanted some feedback to see if anyone would be interested. The idea of this thread will be a mix of slice of life and dungeon crawl. The players would be set in a specific town where they would interact with other players and npc's. They'd also traverse a mysterious demonic world, battling monsters, work as a team, and learn the purpose of this other world.

#Planned #Canon: Aether City #Adventure #Dark #Violence #Ponies #Semi-serious #Long-post #Sign-up

Some years ago, a meteorite hit Eqeustria, near a small metropolis. At first, no one thought much of it, and it was taken in to be stored in archives.

Soon, anomalities started showing. Pegasi gained access to power they shouldn’t be able to, earth ponies along with them, and unicorns previously adept at certains paths of magic either lost everything to a completely new kind, or became masters in their field. Not everything was happy days. Some ponies developed hard shells and claws, chitin plating, segmented eyes. Some’s legs fused to snail-like undersides.

Authorities were quickly called, and all who had mutated were taken in temporary custody. Orders were given to start constructing a city with high walls to contain the affected. A remote island off the coast was deemed as the best place and construction began. The city would come to be known as Aether City.

For a year, they built, Equestria’s united building companies taking on the task. The mutants were kept in custody in temporary city, patrolled by guards. They were signed up and registrered by teams of scientists in hazmat suits. Chips were implanted in them as well, but they were never told why. Food was given sparingly, with no reason given why. They were showered only once a week, and toilets were a luxury cut away to save money. As time passed, only the few who wanted their old name kept it. Some took upon others, while the last resorted to their designation, their pride broken beyond repair.

Anger was building in the camps of mutants, wanting to know why citizens under the rule of the princesses were treated so wrongly. No reason was given, only that all would be better once Aether City was complete.

#Ask/invite #Canon: From the Beginning #Serious #Sign-up

For every story has a beginning.

But knowledge does not spread so fast, and what was written down to be kept forever could be lost or destroyed, leaving the mind to forget it's origin and wander through the world, only able to look at what's close behind it and what could wait up ahead. This was how we were forced to live, having traditions as our only source to vaguely summarize where we came from. This was, until one became determined to find the truth.

For years, this pony has secluded himself to libraries, traveling across Equestria while almost never saying a word to any pony. One who would watch him pass by a town would always remember him for the determination in his eyes and, more-so-than-the-first, the odor that followed him. It was a long time that he spent, trying to find the answers as to how Equestria came to be, and all his years of research has lead him to a frozen wasteland far far away from home.

He fought the bitter cold for over a month. The stallion's food was starting to run out, and no sign of any vegetation would be around; not for miles to come. His faith in finding what he was looking for was beginning to fade, and it seemed like he would have to return to the warmer climates in Equestria. He fell to the snow covered ground, feeling lost and defeated by all the years he spent, only to find that it might have been a mistake after all. But as if the shining grace of Celestia came to show him the way, he would look up, seeing what his heart desired: an old ruined archive, lost to all forms of life until this very day. He rushed inside, seeking refuge from the cold and finding good shelter, something he hasn't been able to enjoy for a while now. Looking around, he saw the vast array of books and scrolls. Many were ruined. He had no idea where to begin. Out of all the books, the one that caught his eye first would be found on a table, set up on a small podium at the other end of what was

I would like to make an announcement to everyone here.

I would like to advise the members of this canon to get steam or skype so they may have direct contact to me if I'm unavailable during an rp or when needed anywhere else. It'll also help discuss small planning for when to do rp's so we know exactly when would be a good time to get on and look up the thread.

Starting from July 30th to August 9th, posts following the DM may possibly be delayed. I'll be attending this year's Bronycon, so I may have trouble keeping up with the thread during that time. Please don't feel discouraged from posting!

#Open #Ask/invite #Series: Strange Encounters #Adventure #Violence #Ponies #Non-pony #Semi-serious #Sign-up

I'm thinking of creating a thread called Strange Encounters. The basic summary-
Equestria, the noble country ruled by the four alicorns- Princess Celestia, Princess Luna, Princess Cadence, and Princess Twilight- has fallen. The land is roamed by creatures of chaos both day and night, and the population of all pony races alike diminishes faster every moment. Trains made of bones, a gloomy overcast over all of Equestria. Most Earth Ponies became slaves to the dark powers, Unicorns met the same fate with chopped off horns, and pegasai the same, wingless.Some are slaves, a meal, or merely entertainment. But what about Equestria's saviors? The Elements of Harmony? The princesses? Princess Celestia and Princess Luna as well as the elements of harmony are no where to be found, and Princess Cadence was publicly executed by the new leader of this dark age. All hope was lost- until one pony found something that could save Equestria- a reverse time spell.Like the one that Twilight used, but lasts much longer...with the possibility of being trapped in the past. That way, they could go back in time and stop the event that started the spiraling downfall of their peaceful and harmonious nation. They could save princess Cadence from death. They could bring salvation to...everything. There's only one problem- nobody knows exactly what that event is. And this pony can't do it alone. She'll need some ponies, people, creatures of any race to help her figure out what exactly happened...and how to save Equestria from becoming a land of darkness, ruled by power- hungry creatures who want nothing more than to keep themselves in the position of power. Even when they get to the past- something's wrong- everypony seems to be hiding

So it's late at night, but this is usually when I get the idea to say what ideas I've built up over the while!

I have this idea for a story based RP. It's set back when the three races of ponies are united and it revolves around the struggles of society reforming itself to fit the wants and needs of a new order of ponies of different races trying to live together in harmony in the new found Equestria.

Does anyone have any thoughts on this? Has this already been done?

It's really just an idea right now, but I want to know if anyone would also be interested in this idea.
