Hello and welcome to /ooc/!

This sticky serves as an introduction as well as a place for The Canon Compendium

Out of character (OOC) roleplay discussion is meant to belong here. That means roleplay organising, recruitment, and general ooc threads for specific roleplays on /rp/. It can also be used for character building/critique and brainstorming for locations, and various other roleplay related necessities, such as general writing for rp technique.

Please keep general chatter threads in /chat/, and actual roleplaying threads in /rp/.If anyone asks you (even anonymously) to move the roleplay to the roleplay thread, please do. Spontaneous roleplay, such as that often found in current OOC threads, will be allowed here, but please do try to keep as much as you can in the correct board.

If you are interested in learning about roleplaying, we have prepared some advice guides which can be found below, and are happy to help you get into the groove of things and help you understand what makes a "good" roleplayer. Various help documents will be linked here for you to read. Looking over them is not required for you to get help in here, but would make our jobs much easier and make your learning experience much smoother.

Click here for our FAQ section.

A guide to creating Original Characters can be found Right here. It won?�?��?��t make you instantly perfect, but it will give you a better idea of what you might want to aim for, and what common mistakes you can easily avoid.

The Canon Compendium.

The purpose of this compendium is to document all the canons on this board and put them in one easy to access and easy to view place to let people quickly and easily find canons they may be interested in playing in. Not only does this help newcomers find things that interest them without having to slog through all of /OOC/, it also is an opportunity to advertise a canon you have made or are in to draw in new blood. This thread does not mean to be some sort of super-serious deal, but rather a way to help out all players by making things easier to find.

If you would like your canon to be added, please refer to the gdocs of the canon Here If you have any questions, or need help with anything, feel free to post in this thread with any questions, someone will be able to help you.

If you have any questions, or need help with anything, feel free to post in this thread with any questions, someone will be able to help you.

Always remember that having fun should be the number one priority!

Hello Everyone, my name is Strangelove, you may also call me Astra, Mr./Mrs. Bolt, Doctor, or that one guy who does things.

I've been roleplaying since I was about 12-13 and am currently 19 going on 20.

I've got quiet a bit of experiences in roleplaying, I started into it on Ponychan back in December, I hope that this proves to be helpful to some people, don't be afraid to jump on in.

Hey, I'm Bubble Berry aka Pezzy aka Sweeney Pie aka random ass characters I showed up as. I was involved in /rp back in May 2011, since then I've been doing a decent bit of lurking at times.

Hey there, everypony! I'm Nimble Wing (I've got a few other characters/names, but you'll mostly see me going as Nimble), and I'm arguably the newest to RP out of those listed, only having participated in my first one back in about late September or early October of 2011, but I had a bit of a talent for it. I've improved quite a bit, especially because, well, RP was my life for a time. I'm good with pretty much everything, so I'll be happy to help with whatever you may need. Happy RPing~

Annnnd I don't have my trip on me, my apologies.

As you can see, name's Sawrik! I joined Ponychan around August last year, my first Ponychan roleplay I've been in I joined in November, but I've been roleplaying since 2007, not as much writing, more D&D wise.

I'm off for the summer, so I'll be here all day, lurking the main thread.

All I can say, hope I can help you have fun roleplaying, because it sure is a blast once you get the hang of it!

Hello, I am "Syn", or as I am called elsewhere, Technopony/gryphon. Anyways, for some history... I have been Roleplaying since... Online, early 2010 on the site FanFiction.Net, but before that, when I was much younger, I tabletop gamed for a few years, around 2006-2008, but haven't done that in a bit. (Dungeons and Dragons, mostly.) Anyways, since my roots on FFN, I like to think I've come a long way in RPing, building up from the beginning over-powered god-modding Mary/Gary Sue/Stue to having, or at least trying to have, well-rounded characters. I've only ever RPed for MLP once or twice, and that was just casual with only one or two friends. So, more or less, this will be my first time RPing for MLP on a large-scale basis. Anyways, glad to be here.

Short answer, yes. Look for a thread with an "#Open" tag and hop in. Some canons, like Harmony, are more structured and have restrictions on what kind of character you can have, while others are generally free-for-all deals.

It's very hard when you don't know anybody to just jump right in, especially if you've never roleplayed before. I recommend hopping onto the /ooc/ thread (>>318146) and start getting to know everybody. I personally started out with D:E, picked my favorite character after a few days, asked a few of my friends from the /ooc/ if they want to join in, and introduced it to Destination: Equestria! Once you make a thread and start getting to know the system and the people, it'll be easy.

Hello? Anybody on? I have a few questions about a new canon me and some friends are starting, specifically what i would need to do to get it on the doc.
>> No. 337643

All you need to do to get it on the doc is to post in info in the format listed at the top of the Canon Compendium. After which I'll add it. Just so you know, the format is this:

Name: The name of the canon
Link: A link to the most current OOC thread or wherever else contains information on the canon
Canon-Type: List here if your canon is either FiM-oriented, General, or Non-Pony. FiM-oriented means only FiM species would be allowed (only species that appear in the show, similar to the #FiM-Only tag). General means that setting has FiM elements but is not restricted to only FiM elements (i.e. could be set in Equestria and have crossover characters, similar to the #General tag). Non-Pony means the canon has nothing to do with FiM--no ponies or anything of that sort. ONLY USE THESE TAGS.
Sign Up?: List here if people have to sign up to join the canon or not. This is typically a yes or no question, so simply put yes or no.
[b]Description:[b] Include a brief description of the setting of your canon and the style of roleplay. Where is it set? Is it freeflowing or structured? Is it oriented toward action, grimdark, slice of life, or anything of the sort? The description is the biggest part and will give people the best idea of what the canon is, so don?�?��?��t hold back! Also include any other information you think will be necessary, such as specific contact information for canon admins if there are any.

Thank you so much! Sorry for the delayed response.

Name: Change(l)ing perspective.
Canon Type: FiM Oriented
Sign up: Yes
Description: Focuses on the interaction between Changelings and Ponies, and the struggle for continued peace after the attempted invasion of Canterlot.

After the failed invasion, Chrysalis and her forces were weakened, and discouraged. Retreating back to the Hive to regroup, Equestria and the Hive were on the brink of War. Tensions were strained, and conflict threatened to engulf the two nations. However, Celestia feared a full on war. As proficient as the royal guard were, the entirety of the changeling population was ready for combat, and trained for it. And they far outnumbered the ponies. Instead of war, and the eradication of one or both nations, the two governments met, and together, formed a treaty. Unstable? Yes. Volatile? Yes. Possible? Yes. With the signing of the Black-Gold Proclamation, Three things happened;

First, Canterlot began to build the Black District in the caves beneath Canterlot mountain. This was a safe haven for Changelings in Equestria, and housed the Changeling Embassy, where ambassadors and civilians from the Hive could live in relative peace.

Secondly, The Hive began to construct the Gold Cell in the most well lit of its subterranean Expanse. Here, Ponies could live without fear of being fed upon, as they conducted business, and participated in the Changeling politics.

Third and last, the Proclamation made it just as illegal for a pony to commit a violent action against a changeling as it was to do the same to another pony, and vice versa. Changelings and Ponies were equalized before the law.

This, is where you come in...

Being a Player
These threads will alternate between the Hive, and Canterlot, and your character will be one of the residents. You could be a guard, a civilian, an ambassador... anything you want really, as long as you ask. The canon also has a few simple rules.

1: No Humans. This is a pseudo-canon canon, and so far, there are no humans in equestria.

2: Power limit is < Celestia or Luna. The more powerful your character, the easier it is for the officers to pick on you.

3: Rolling vs. Honor. We dont care which you use, just be consistant and decide beforehand.

4: Keep OOC chat in the OOC thread. This should be self evident. If you want to talk to another player, please come here and do it. We dont want to clutter the roleplaying with idle chit chat.

5: Godmodding will result in quick termination. Dont do it.

>WAAY late response
I've delved a bit into Pathfinder before, but not very much. However, I've been known to pick up on things relatively quickly, and I've done some DMing before in DnD, Pathfinder, and Ponychan RP. So... depending on what you specifically need help with, I may be able to lend a hoof. Lemme know what you need, and I'll try to be quicker in responding next time~
>> No. 351479
nah you're not late, i would need to set up a weekend to gather everyone to play but what i guess i(we) need a GM since im terrible at it.

again to bring life to it even more, Pathfinder needs to be ponies. hopefully keeping it more mythical and to the show as close as we can with the acception of rpg 'tools' like knifes, magic, necromancy, etc. no humans unless mentioned in a book or something.

does any of that sound ok?

File 135042897826.png - (94.06KB , 626x565 , Nimble Wing by Derpy.png )
Well, theoretically, as long as you knew what you were doing, then you could change pretty much anything in the rules of Pathfinder. And that includes changing the races, classes, settings, etc all to the FiM canon. Actually, a friend of mine made an entire campaign based on the DnD 3.5 ruleset that was a crossover between FiM and Fallout, so I've seen it first hand.
I suppose that, if nobody else steps forward to help GM with you guys, then I could go get the Pathfinder rules for myself and customize things a bit for you, and then quick-write a campaign. Or at least collaborate with you (and/or some other members of your group) to get all that done.
Just lemme know if that sounds good, and we'll go from there.

>holy crap, late response
Well, in terms of searching for a canon to join, then I'd recommend giving the Canon Compendium a quick look. It's got quite a few of Ponychan's RP canons listed on it, and gives quick descriptions of each. Browse on through there, and if one catches your eye, then go talk to the users in it, and figure out if that's where you wanna go.

As for you, may I ask what two canons you were a part of, as well as how long you were a part of them? You may be less of a newcomer than you think!
Also, similar advice that I gave to Ghost applies to you, too. Everybody has different preferences for where and what they RP. If you find one that you like, joining the canon is pretty easy. The instructions are generally listed right in the OOC or IC threads! If not, or if you're confused, just ask in the thread. I'm sure that they'll be happy to help you with their individual processes.

However, if either of you have more questions, or need more help, don't be afraid to ask!

Well, look around a bit. Perhaps do some lurking at your most convenient RP times and see which threads are updating the most, or maybe kinda ask around. I know for a fact that you're not the only one who operates on that sort of schedule. I've pretty much become the same, RPing late evening and nights when I go IC.
Ponychan's a global thing, so it shouldn't be too hard to find a group that fits into your times, or even one that operates around the clock. Take a look to see what you'd enjoy the most, and dive in to see when they're active. You may just like what you find.

Oh, hush you! Perhaps it's worded a bit bluntly, but that's not so bad. The majority of my characters fit under the "tragic past, but tries not to let it haunt them" category. I just word it differently. Maybe Hackalot is actually a really interesting character, but you just don't know it yet!

I've been asking around for a good Pony rp sight, and people directed me here.

You can call me Nate, and expect typical newbie behavior from me.

Say hello to Data Stream, he's a bit of a rumor mill. He takes and keeps track of interesting (and usually embarrassing) tidbits of info and lets others in on all these secrets, for a price. One hell of a smooth talker, you'll find yourself telling him things you wouldn't tell anyone else before you know it. Nothing quite like profiting on freely acquired merchandise.

He used to be kind while in school, listening in to various ponies' problems and offering advice to help them out. However, with so many secrets in tow, it was only a matter of time before he fell into the wrong crowd. He doesn't keep many friends because of this, and while he is a smooth talker, any social skills beyond that are a little foreign to him. He'd actually like to have more friends, but his chronic backstabbing disorder at the first shiny bit waved in his face means he lives a lonely life, only having a small ever changing circle of fair weather loners he waves a shiny bit to in return.

Greetings. I am Haytham Kenway... mostly. I play as other people if required. Former /b/ fag and a regular sex roleplayer, I was once a veteran of the Fallout roleplays during the dawn of the dial up ages, and I am also an avid fan of the Warhammer 40,000 universe.

tl;dr, hi

Well, hello there, Haytham! And welcome to /rp/ and /ooc/! I certainly hope you enjoy your time here, but just remember that, although it's something you said that you do regularly, sex RP isn't something allowed on here. You'll have to keep that elsewhere. But I'm sure that it won't be an issue, and if you have any questions at all, feel free to post them here!
Oh, and I'm sure you'll find plenty of others around here who love the Warhammer 40,000 series. I know of a few who are very open about that, so it won't be hard to find them. In fact, they'll probably find you~

Anyway, as I said, welcome to /rp/ and /ooc/! Have a great time here, and don't be afraid to ask questions~

Well, here's some basic pointers I can give you right off.

>Keep a folder full of images of your characters.
This will make your posts less likely to be subconsciously glossed over. They don't have to be fancy; most of us use the pony generator.

>Keep looking around /ooc/ until you find a canon that suits your playstyle. And if that fails, make one yourself.
The different canons are tailor-made to how different users feel comfortable. The good thing about this place is that there's something for everyone.

>Remember that this isn't fanfiction.
The stories told here involve multiple people telling them, so there's going to be some conflict. There's going to be characters who don't like yours, and your actions are going to have consequences. Embrace that conflict and act reasonably for your character, depending on the character alone.

Those are just a few things that came to mind. Hope they help.

Well, people, I am new to this really. Sort of. I started roleplaying like...a couple months ago and I found that I really liked it. I had no idea that people even did role play. Ever since, I have been roleplaying every single day. I have characters for ponies and humans and I am very flexible when it comes to what kind of rp I like to play. I can play anything, but there is really one problem. I'm not on the computer much. My mother typically takes control of it so I won't be on very often, which, I'm afraid, renders this entire thing pointless, but I will continue anyhow. I love to role play, absolutely love it, but I'm completely new to this site. I've never really been on here before. I've gone around the art and ooc threads (which I failed at posting correctly) and finally found the place I was looking for. Here is a description of my pony character (I don't have a picture for him...mainly because I'm not that good of an artist and can't draw him myself.):

Liquid Lightning, who prefers just Lightning, is a grey pegasus with yellow tipped wings. His mane and tail both are spiky, white, and they both fade into black towards the tips. His eyes are a brilliant gold and his cutie mark is of a lightning bolt striking water and bouncing off. He can absorb electricity out of anything that has power, such as a storm cloud or anything that produces electricity really, and redirect amounts of it at will. Unfortunately, he can not absorb too much or the immense amount of energy will kill him.

Looks and powers aside, he is a gentle and justice loving individual. He will not put up with criminal acts, now that he has reformed himself, and will push to his limits to prevent it. He is captain of the Dangerous Weather Patrol (which is really just a back up if the Weather Pegasi mess something up and a tornado occurs, a possible destructive storm is let loose, or a hurricane appears) and he does his job well. He and his team travel across Equestria; making sure it's safe from natural disasters. Of course, they aren't perfect, and sometimes things get through, but the Failsafe Organization is there too. Their job is in their name as they make sure there is a failsafe incase the DWP fails its job.

Lightning doesn't get much free time, but when he does, he makes sure to take it all in and enjoy every second of it. He isn't used to being all tied up. As a young colt, he always played around with Mia, his pet manticore. She was typically misunderstood, and grew very protective over him since his parents died, so when he brings a pony over to his house, which is a previously abandoned manor in the Everfree Forest that he and his parents fixed up, he has to be holding their hoof and must reassure Mia they are not trying to hurt him.

Lightning is a generally friendly pony, but when it comes to work or if you make him mad, he is very serious (obviously if you make him mad). He has a strict loyalty to his higher authorities, comrades, and friends. He lets nothing come in between him and those three things, and if something tries, you better believe he'll prevent it from happening, or die trying.

(too much?)

Rp's green room, which is located at the top sticky over on /gala/ if you lose the link. Scroll to the bottom, and the last post will be 'new thread', which I linked ya to. Have fun!

Well, that all depends on what genre, post length, level of serious, and other quirks and topics you're looking for, in an RP canon. RP has canons from short post, and random, to long posts filled with science, and magic, and other things that I often get lost while reading! You have old mainstays, and new, innovative choices that are (Mostly) always looking for new members to join up, and have fun with. However, a lot do have sign up processes, and applications, but nine times out of ten, they're easy as pie to fill out, and an officer of the canon will usually happily help out with it.

Hello! Welcome. I'll be willing to point you to some canons that'll peak your interests.

Pretty much around here you just need to look for an rp that you would enjoy to be in, but there are some you need to sign up for in an OOC, so it would be good if you checked /ooc/ as well.
