Hello and welcome to the roleplay announcement thread. This thread is intended as a place to post roleplay-related announcements and notices - that includes recruiting for and advertising upcoming threads, requesting specific types of threads or contact with specific kinds of players and other activities directly associated with roleplay. It is not intended for discussions, roleplaying or chatting. Think of this thread as a billboard - a place to post and read notices, but not hold a conversation in. Also keep in mind that any off-topic posts will be reported for removal, so please don't derail the thread with such - it just means needless work for everyone involved.

How to post an announcement?
Think of it as posting an ad to the newspaper - be as clear and concise as you can be. An example would be;
A lighthearted "Sharing is Caring" canon thread is planned to kick off about two hours from now. We're looking for one more player who might find themselves in Sugarcube corner. You can contact me on Steam as GenericName, via email or leave me a message in >>2951413.

This example covered the essential things - it gives out the outline of the thread, which is useful not only for prospective participants, but also anyone who might want to lurk it, it says what it needs and lists several ways of contacting the poster, to apply or to ask additional questions, outside of the announcement thread.

Another, simpler announcement might be this;
Looking for a FiM-friendly thread or another poster to join for an adventure series. I like sunsets and long posts on the beach and am usually active around tweleventeen o'clock CBT. Looking forward to hearing from you!

This example is almost, but not quite good - while it points out what the poster is looking for and when they're available, it neglects to mention any way of getting a hold of the player. Don't be afraid of injecting some humor or personality into your announcement, but don't overdo it either.

The notices don't necessarily have exclusively to do with matchmaking either - for example;
Does anyone happen to have a saved copy of the "Outhouse Trouble" thread from about three weeks ago? If you do, can you let me know at GenericName on Steam, SomeRandomFilly on AIM or in the Building Blunders canon OOC thread? Thanks in advance!

In short, you can use this thread to draw attention of other posters but, and I cannot emphasize this enough, do not use it for conversations or things unrelated to roleplay - if derailing posts crop up, please report them for cleanup. If you want to keep track of new notices posted here, you can add it to your watched threads list. Also keep in mind that you can always delete a notice of your own if you no longer need it, whether because it's obsolete, the need has been filled or any other reason that may appear.

And as a final note, bump if you need to, but do not spam - feel free to repost an announcement you have made some time ago if you want to bring it back to the forefront, but do so sparingly - a good rule of thumb might be not to do so if it's still visible among the thread's last fifty posts.

Pony Quest: Return of the Hralgin is now open! It is a quest-style game! For those not familiar with that type of game, the rules are explained in the OP!

Anyone is welcome to come play, but be warned: this game may contain horrific elements. Those who are sensitive to such things might wish to be careful. If that hasn't driven you off, feel free to come play Pony Quest at:

Well we've got a D&D 3.5 game being put together over here and could use another two more players or so:

Give her a glance:Adventures in a high-magic world of endless sky, airships, and floating islands. Quite fun no?

We presently have two warriors and one undecided (Myself I'm just going to go with what the party needs) and are trying to -avoid- the Tier 1 classes if at all possible. So keep that in mind.

The Lands of the North is starting! Taking place around 100 years after Discord was overthrown (and before Luna was banished), we're sailing the cold and unforgiving seas of the north in search for new lands, new places, and new opportunities. The Adamantine, only accepting the hardiest of the hardy for their crew, will be setting sail very soon!

We're going to focus more on plot and character development, and wish for longer, more descriptive posts. We're going to accept a maximum of 6 characters. Extra details are outlined in the link below.

For any extra questions, comments, or ideas, please post in the thread! Feel free to post your character sheets or let us know you're cooking one up!

Can't wait to see you on board! ...And see how long you can last...

I have an idea for a new RP thread thing, and I want to know If anyone else would be interested in it. I think it would be cool to have a stoner comedy themed RP that takes place in a dispensary/cannabis club. If I started this, would anyone else join, or is this a dumb idea?
>> No. 434226
I'm not sure if this goes against the chan's rules, but you can try it. I think the worst you might get is a warning. But, you should make a separate thread for this instead of in the Announcement thread.
>> No. 434234
I did make a thread for it, and I guess RPing in it would imply that canonically, the characters all have prescriptions, so it should be ok.

Well I've posted up the recruitment thread for Snow Ponies which can be found here: >>441128

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.

Okay, first post here in /rp/. Hope I don't mess this up.

First, I'm looking for a simple RP set in a canon with easy accessibility that accepts OC characters outside of the FiM universe. Any genre is fine but action/adventure or slice of life would be nice.

Second, as I am new here, I am going to try and find the OC archive/directory/thingumabob thread where people post their characters

Hope this works.

>First, I'm looking for a simple RP set in a canon with easy accessibility that accepts OC characters outside of the FiM universe. Any genre is fine but action/adventure or slice of life would be nice.

You might try the Donut Bar thread series for that over in /rp/ for that. Or any thread marked with #Open, and #Crossover.

>Second, as I am new here, I am going to try and find the OC archive/directory/thingumabob thread where people post their characters

We actually don't have a compendium of characters or anything like that. The closest you're gonna get to something like that are /ooc/ threads connected to #Ask/Invite marked canons/threads over in /rp/. Basically, submitting a character sheet for approval before they can play.

Sorry to say, signing up has over-taken just plain ole open threads, though, generally speaking, its pretty hard to get denied these days.

A post virus Equestria, where ponies died out long ago. With some heavy western themes, some steampunk tech, a huge war, and some magitech just for good measure, all that's needed is some players.
