I'm thinking about being DM for a Jazzpunk-universe RP. I don't think anyone should be Polyblank, but there can be other agents under the Director.

If you don't know what Jazzpunk is, you don't really have to. It's a videogame made by Necrophone and it's described as a "comedy adventure set in an alternate reality Cold War World, plagued with corporate espionage, CyberCrime, and sentient martinis" by the developers.

Basically, you can be secret gents, citizens, etc. and I'll be DM controlling other characters such as various robots, characters and stuff, and I'll try my best to keep the general mood together. Anyone interested? I'll get cracking on some sort of plot, and I guess the players will be collaborating agents. Who knows, maybe someone wants to play as an enemy agent or something?

Hey guys. I was thinking of some kind of RP that'd be as tags said: It'd kinda start as SoL, but I guess it'd kind of change... low on ideas, is anybody interested in shaping (and joining) this RP?

Thinking of making a "Godmod Thread" in /rp/ because I want to herd up all the godmodders and give them a place where nobody cares if you can launch 999999999999999 missiles at a time from your mouth and come back to life while simontaniously stopping WWs III, IV, V, VI, VII, and IX ("WWVIII" would've been stopped but the government tried a "peaceful" way to fight which was really a pillow fight that wasn't even as epic as AJ and Rarity's pillow fight) because EVERYONE ELSE CAN DO IT. Sure, maybe this is because I was a godmodder before others helped me see the light. But I think this could be good. Do you guys think so?

I've tried this a few times friend, but it's difficult if you don't feel like putting a huge amount of effort into it. It's not so much about godmodding characters, but more about activity. People want to rp with other people, and if the other people aren't fun to rp with or the thread doesn't have much activity it kind of falls down the drain.

#Open #Series: TeaCOP #Adventure #Lighthearted #Ponies #Normal #DiscussionOnly #Sign-up

Welcome to the Circle of Play. A series of short RP's designed to bring us together and expand our horizons with interesting, but non-extensive plots. These are open RP's designed for drop in and dropout roleplaying. Set to last inbetween 2 hours to 8 hours depending on the scenario. Here is how these work.

Simplified version
The plot: Each RP will begin in a relatively simply environment, with a very simple plot. Rpers will interact with each other based on their own volition, and start to form the beginnings of a story from there.
The twist: After everyone has had a moment to situate themselves, the situation will drastically change, and you must adjust to it. The plot will continue with all the elements that were in play, as well as the new ones.
The rules:Ponies or other pony-logical creatues, such as Griffons, or Steven Mustache. Fighting will follow a rule of K.I.S.S. (Keep it simple, stupid) When the RP is announced to be over, you are to start wrapping up your plots, so that you may exit stage left. If you desire to continue your RP, continue it either on skype, or in a new thread. I would love to see some small RP's tailing off of these prompts.

Long Version

Each story will begin with a relatively simple prompt for a story narrative. After you've all explored the narrative for a bit, further narrative will shake things up a bit, changing the pace of the story, or at least the course of the river it flows on. Below are a few examples;

"You've become part of a bigger universe. You just don't know it yet."
Nick Fury, Iron Man (2008)


We live in a changing world.

Every day, more and more seemingly average ponies are discovering innate abilities within themselves that set them far up on the evolutionary curve, including enhanced strength, telepathy, and teleportation, to name a few. Most attempts at going public with these powers are often met with scorn and hate. Neither party truly understands the other, nor wants to. The “normals” do their best to hide the fact that a freak was living among them, and the “supers” are often run out of town. These ponies are usually scared, confused, and possibly angry. They turn their backs on the world, resorting to crime to channel their hatred. Some are downright villainous.

Some aren't.

Who are we? We are the Super Equine Administration (S.E.A. for short), an extension of the Royal Guard that monitors, recruits, and dispatches ponies with..."unique" skills, to fight the battles we never could. We realize that bringing these criminals to the justice they deserve may attract some unsavory attention, so we encourage our field-recruits to hide their identity, as not to bring harm to their loved ones.

Welcome to the OOC Thread!

Newcomers to /rp/ introduce yourselves here! All canons welcomed and encouraged!

This thread series is meant to provide a fun and relaxing place for Out-of-Character roleplay discussion. Feel free to talk about new ideas for threads and characters, ask for help, opinions, or ask for and give constructive criticism.

The rules are simple. First off, please remember to keep a constructive and civil attitude as you chat with your fellow /rp/ers, and avoid letting arguments get heated or degenerate into personal attacks. Keep in mind we wish to be welcoming to all newcomers, and we don't want them to be turned off by flame wars. Please take the light /rp/ing in the thread to our /gala/ equivalent (/rp/'s Green Room) if possible, don't flood us with posts of pictures alone, and spoiler them if they are sufficiently sexy or disturbing.

Welcome to Koniksburg, a mining community in the far northeastern reaches of Equestria. Expect LOTS of snowball fights, evergreens, maple syrup, stylish scarves, and fetlocks unshorn, just as nature intended. The town is surrounded by the Crystal Mountains, a place where many a wondrous adventure and mystery can be found. This is a game about ponies doing what ponies do: having fun with each other, a mix of slice of life and adventure, all with the backdrop of a magical world. The game focuses on interpony interaction, light comedy, and problem solving, going back to the basic theme of the show and avoiding all the more grimdark or hyper-silly themes that have taken over many pony role plays.

To keep it familiar yet new; the game will take place in the same Equestria of the show, but will revolve around a different group of ponies in a different place. More Detailed information about the area can be found:HERE [tinyurl.com]:

I am presently looking for FOUR additional players for this game (Which would make it Six total counting myself and a friend). Reliability is a must, as is some basic experience in role playing or writing.

Unlike most games Koniksburg will have TWO parts to it

The Thread
The first is the sort you’re all familiar with: a thread here on /rp/. A simple place to have your characters interact casually between episodes, with no real rules or restrictions outside of keeping the setting intact. Time will be treated as very fluid here and players will be free to occasionally retcon things, fast forward and shift stuff about to suit the story at hand. There is not much to explain here as this i

Alright: We've got a full six players again so lets get this show on the road.

I'd like to run the first session this Friday at 7:05PM Eastern time. If anyone has any problems with that time please inform me and I'll switch the day.

I've made a little skype group where you can all discuss your characters and how they might know each other in real time. Some of you have already taken advantage of such. Ucro, and Comrade didn't get to be a part of the little creation discussion we had so this is a good way to touch base with them.

Links to everyone's characters can be found here:
https://docs.google.com/document/d/1cWWU-H2IHXEHjSFNF1m64fGgTIMHzXn5uZk84pqkMMI/edit

Try to have any of the odds and ends finished on your sheet (background, little additional edits or changes etc) by Friday. Keep in mind I'm perfectly open to custom or swapped abilities as long as I okay them first.

I might as well introduce to you all to tonight's plot. Or give you a taste of it for those who are around <3~

It will be taking place in the shimmering Mining lodge, one of Mister Tarnations Gem mines. Tarnation being a very wealthy Southerner pony who moved in about five years ago, and through his ruthless penny pinching tactics managed to get a pretty solid foothold in the Koniksburg mining business. Loud and confident, while not the most pleasant of persons, he's known to be the sort who gets the job freaking done which is certainly a plus.

Gems and crystals are worth a we bit more if shipped out as a finished product as you can imagine, and apparently he's quite interested in making a deal with Zach and Chalice in that department. Most of his workers in that area are crystal ponies, and it might not surprise you that crystal pony based crystal works are flooding the market a bit.. and something a bit more 'unique' like Zachs work has a chance of doing well. Using his connections, and his mines to get the raw materials for cheaper costs.

However he insisted to meet both of them in person <3~ Which is Why Barnstormer is along for the ride. Being moral support for Zach who might not have the confidence to deal with someone like the baron here. By moral support I mean 'Chalice isn't strong enough to drag Zach there on her own'

As for Doctor snow and Sweet Potato.. they're both at the lodge already if for very different reasons. A few of the miners have been getting serious headaches and dizziness problems and doctor snow is there to confirm what might be wrong with the crystal ponies and to make sure it doesn't turn into a law suit for Mister Tarnation (Oh and yes totally because he cares for his workers too, that's it <_< >_>). Not many of his workers are in the mine right now as a result and he's 'treating' them to a fancy meal. Essentially hiring Sweet potato as a caterer for the day. It probably helps that potato's are a damn lot cheaper to buy but don't tell Sweetie that <3~ as he is clearly hiring her because her work is just that wonderful.

Character Name: Demon Seeker
Age: 2000
Race: Alicorn/Demonic
Sex: Male
History: He was born 2000 years ago to the royal family. However, he was basically a master of infinite demonic energy. He hated being overshadowed by his siblings, and so he wanted power. He made a pact to Satan and started a fanatical satanic cult to attempt to overthrow Discord during his rule, but failed, so Discord locked him away deep within the planet for over 1000 years. During this time, he made amendments with the devil and swore that he will claim Equestria for Satan when the time calls him to emerge once more from the depths of hell. He emerged no later than 1 month ago, ready to take back Equestria which should have belonged to him.

Personality: A complete douchebag, he will sell out his own friends to further his own gain and the gain of Satan. He will do anything to gain power, whether it be murder, seduction, or simple befriending.

Special Talent and Cutie Mark: Pentagram
Others: Because he honed his strength, he wields the power of anything he wishes.

#Ask/invite #Canon: Day by Day #Chill #Lighthearted #Shipping #FiM-only #Power Limit #Normal #Discussion

Hello and welcome, once again, to the Day by Day (DbD) OOC thread. This is the place you go to apply to and discuss the DbD canon with those in it.

Well, what are you waiting for? Here are the rules: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1xBHFSMZA4NejUZ6YZ0GTutkTmsv8LDsERNKshe3zwJI/edit

Here's the character list: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0An3pzYXVLKwudEZTcURISWJraTdFUzZ6WUNnb2xaeWc#gid=0

Make sure that you check it often to see if either myself or Nimble or Astra or Lunacy (although it's usually me) have updated it. We (that is to say, I) are only ponies, and we (again, I) forget a lot.

For the IRC, go here: http://www.ponychan.net/chan/irc/ and type #DayByDay into the channel section. But no one really uses this. Still, if you need to contact me privately, just notify me in thread, and say you want to talk in the IRC or something.

Finally, I ask that you keep in mind your fellow posters in the thread. Don't be rude or inflammatory, don't troll or derail, and most importantly, have fun.

Who? Ember? I don't think he left. I'm not even sure why the canon shut down. it seemed to be going well, and then it suddenly got shut down. Odds are, if you have a way to contact them, one of the old officers (Astra, Lunacy, Nimble) would be able to tell you what happened.

So, as it turns out, out of the whole bunch of people who did apply for Day by Day, only a few actually took the time to roleplay in the canon.

To be fair, I'm guilty of this one too - I can't even remember if I DID apply.

Key members (such as Twilight Sparkle's player) were a part of this, so while it looked okay with the few people who were roleplaying, any and all story didn't progress, and as such, the canon was indistinguishable from any canon-less roleplay, and therefore, was pointless.

Lunacy speaks the truth, I RPed here for a bit but then stopped when I was leaving for the military, a couple of our other key people left as well and it just wasn't worth keeping around anymore.
