Hi, so, I want to start RP'ing here. I read the OOC sticky and it answered basically all of my questions, but I just need to know one thing before creating a definitive OC, are there any real limitations? I would probably be creating my own canon, and I realize that as long as I am in someone else's canon my OC needs to abide by the rules of said canon, but if I'm creating my own canon, can I basically just do whatever I want for my OC? Ex. If I created my canon and I wanted my OC to be a programmer/coder, or to be born/live in a certain time-period despite it not actually being canon in the show, is it still allowed? I'm not totally sure if anything I just made sense to anyone but if it did, help would be appreciated :D

I dunno. I've very briefly had a character named Death Darkfall McShortposter. But perhaps we were all so foolish in our early days of RP...
>> No. 447420
The only limitations is the pg 13 setting of the site. You can get away with dancing the line, but sex scenes need to do a fade to black, and too much gore/blood/nasty pics and or descriptions will get you a warning to tone it down.

As someone who has been on this cursed chan for two years, I cannot stress this enough. Your character should fit the setting, both from IC and OOC perspectives. Don't make an angsty, anti-social character in a canon meant for socialising and having fun. Same for the vice-versa.

#Limited #Canon: Lands of the North #Fresh start #Adventure #Violence #FiM-only #Semi-serious #Sign-up

Welcome mares and stallion, to the Lands of the North! A brand spankin new canon full of Mystery, Drama, ADVENTURE!, and of course the occasional wise crack!

So pull up a seat! Grab a stack of hay to munch on, and as always, don't forget your helmet! It's going to be a WILD RIDE!

It has been a hundred years since Celestia overthrew Discord and took the throne. Peace and love have spread throughout the lands of Equestria once more, but tolerance is still elusive. The three tribes: Earth, Pegasi, and Unicorn, have only just ended their long held onto disputes, and only in recent years have begun to explore their new lands.

Being so new to the throne, and having such a vast kingdom to govern, Celestia has decided to send individual groups of ponies out across the lands of Equestria to explore and gather knowledge of the lands and it's people.

Sorry I'm so slow, I'll check this out in a bit, though I might have to say no. Technically i wanted a limited number of players, but one kind of quit/is very slow, so I might have a spot open.

If you didn't already, go ahead and skim through this ooc and check out some of my important posts, will explain a lot, and we like posters to long post as often as they can, but it is not a definite requirement for EVERY post

if you are still interested after that, go ahead and post a character sheet for both your characters, and if you can, try and add some detail to it so I can see how your writing is :)

don't worry, we're not crazy strict, we just don't short, undetailed posts like you see in doughnut bar and AOS. Not that they are bad, we just like to write in more detail

So, considering how many settings Vausten and I have come up with just to fuck around in. We more like me because all Vausten does is eat cheetos and look at airplane porn thought it would be a good idea to list out all of the canons we made over the last 2 years or so, so we have a good list that people can pick from if they want to have a game in them/ so we don't forget what we're doing.

Next couple of posts will give information and how the games work.

#Open #Canon: Tales of the Unikon #Semi-serious #Sign-up #By the Way #We are out of Coffee

Oh hey! I almost forgot to make this thing!

Welcome to tales of the Unikon, gents and ladies. Here, we will be welcoming any newcomers to the canon, as well as discuss several ideas to throw into the story.

If you might be wondering, this canon takes place in the harsh lands of the Northwestern regions of Equestria's frontier. Glaciers, Forests, Rivers, Streams, Mountains, and Tundra. You're looking at Alaska, in all senses.

So, sit back, relax, and feel free to drop me a line, stop by for a chat if you wish, or hell, even join us if you want to.

#Open #Adventure #Ponies

I'd just like to set up a simple RP to get in touch with the community and get going on this RPing stuff.finally. I thought perhaps we may get this started with a simple 'adventure' So the only plot I'd like to have set up here is a journey to Ponyville, starting along the paths to Canterlot. This is perhaps a 3 day foot walked journey, and then we'd be parting ways. Simply get out there and meet others.

Feel free to post any characters here. I'll be making an RP thread in a moment to link you to~ Submit a character below, we can simply get rolling immediately, no questions really asked. I'd just like to know about the character for reference.

No one would have believed... that we were being watched by beings with intelligence far greater than our own...

Welcome, one and all, to the official sign up of this incarnation of H G Wells' classic Science Fiction horror, The War of the Worlds. I am your host, the British Army, and I will be playing the dreaded Martians come to conquer and destroy all equine kind...

I see it only fitting to make a roleplay of this, as this year marks the 75th Anniversary of Orson Welles' broadcast that scared the Eastern Seaboard of the United States. However, the ponies in this story will not have the luxury of it being a radio broadcast... The invaders are all too real... and all too devastating... How long can Pony Kind hold out against these invaders?

So, without much further ado, pull up a chair, sign up, and be prepared to be scared silly.

Hello everyone! I have an idea for a canon I'd like to start. Here's the premise: The three pony tribes unite in order to settle in a new land. However, it turns out there are several other tribes fighting over nearby lands. Not only that, but monsters of old run free, unchecked, not yet banished to Tartarus. It is up to you courageous pioneers to explore this new land and brave its perils in order to secure a future for Equestria!

This will take place a year or so (or maybe more) after the events depicted in Hearth's Warming Eve.

This canon will not preserve the innocence of the show. There will be battling. There will be death. However, some motifs of the show will carry through.

I'm thinking things are going to go like this. You guys will be pioneers (adventurers) tasked with various jobs (quests) from the different leaders that make up the oligarchy that currently rules Equestria. Well, it's more of a tribe ring. Yes, that means you'll be interacting with the characters in the Hearth's Warming Eve play (though they may not all be there, and they wont be exactly like how the mane 6 personified them). Note that not all characters have to be a warrior, as long as they have other skills (Scouting, Utility spells, Negotiator, etc.)

If anyone's played King of Dragon Pass (it's an oldie but a goodie) then you'll see similarities in how the tribe is set up, if that helps.

I'll be working on a doc to outline exactly how I'm going to run this thing.

#Ask/invite #Canon: A long night #Adventure #Dark #Violence #Ponies #Serious #Pre-registration #thoughts questions and concerns

There are a great many things that go bump in the night, just not many ponies open their eyes to see what is actually right in front of their face. However not all of these creatures want to be the monster they are supposed to be.
A lone vampire that was born a vampire, and cursed to never die seeks mortality at any cost. However there is one problem, under certain circumstances, he transforms into something more like his ancestors... a savage beast with a thirst for death.
Is this a quest best taken together? Or with the threat of letting the monster over his head, would it be a trip better taken alone?

Okay so basicly this thread is an application thread, and if you get approved, which I am pretty leanient about, then you may join. Now, it is both ponies, and monster ponies, so don't be afraid to whip something in. I would be more then happy even if it meant a second quest going on in the thread. Anyways, any thoughts? Questions? concerns? If you REALLY want to, you can throw in an application now :l It would be fine with me.

In all honesty, I don't quite know. I suppose that matters as to whether or not that Litos trusts who he meets or not.

Feel like directly stating I want my own adventure would not only be a bit selfish and reclusive, but also kinda split your attention too much.
