Baron von Buckingworth sought treasure at any cost. He paid many, many Bits into the pursuit of this one goal, but eventually paid the ultimate cost at the hands of the Griffon Empire.

Hello and welcome to Treasure Hunting Unlimited! This a spin-off of Treasure Hunting, a relatively small roleplay with a lot of promise, but it needed a bit more love. That being said, the premise was originally originally built and planned by a pretty cool guy named Panzermole.

This RP going to be taking the plot he's already laid out in a slightly different direction, focusing more on Character & World Building over Story. The story itself will be changed and tailored to the players Which is how the first one should have been, in my opinion. No questions yet, please. WE'RE MOVING ON! This w't ill focus heavily on character, plot, and world building. If ya don't have a taste for that, then that's fine - just don't participate. Angst is excellent, and PvP is allowed, within reason. Don't kill another character unless they've agreed to it. Which brings me to my next point: Godmodding. Don't know what that is? Check out the TVTropes page through this elegant and finely-crafted link! ... Don't do this. Just don't.

Frequently Asked Questions
There was no copyright on it. By extension, I claim no copyright on this. That's both the magic and the curse of the Fandom. Nothing we do (That is, in relation to MLP) is really ours, as the My Little Pony Franchise is owned by and copyrighted by Hasbro. Your argument is oatmeal. Eeeyup.

Does this take place in the same canon as Treasure Hunting?
Kind of. What happens here does not affect anything that happens there and vice versa. That being said, everything in that thread that happened up to >>/rp/39350318 is taken as having already happened... but anything that happens after that point does not happen.

Sooo.... The fights... All the drama...?
Yes, that all happened in the context of this RP.

Who is the GM?
Me, for now. But if somepony else feels I don't do a good job and want to take the reigns for themselves, they have the right to challenge my authority in rigged perfectly fair open combat.

Are you insane?
... No comment.

Is this a sequel to Treasure Hunting?
Haha, no. That honor is not ours to have. If Panzermole was to make a sequel, that would be the sequel. This is, as it relates to Treasure Hunting, what Vice City was to the Grand Theft Auto series. Or, if you prefer a dessert metaphor: Cream Pastries to Fruity Pastries. Which is which is, of course, open for interpretation.

Well, how do I join?
Well, that part's easy, nameless Question-Asker! Just fill out this form and post in this thread!
Bear in mind that if you're a new guy, it is likely that you will have to wait before appearing in the (Not created yet!) Roleplay thread itself, as it is planned that the Baron's Yacht be taken over and the Baron killed. This should be played through. However, if we get more than like 2 or 3 additional characters committed to this, the bridging posts will just be skipped over. The OP will touch on what happened, and the story will start directly on the Griffons.

Either way, you'll be brothers-in-bonds with the veteran characters eventually.

> Name: You know this.
> Sex: You know this.
> Race: You know this. (Anything that appears in the G4 version of the show. Within reason and open to my discretion.)
> Age: You know this. (Approximate age in human years if you don't care to bother with the supposed lifespan differences. Or if they're around the Mane 6's age, just write "Mane 6 Age".)
> Appearance:You know this. Also, please post a picture of your character. Use a pony creator if you don't know how to art things like me.
> Personality: You know this.
> Background: You know this.
> Valuable skills: Ah, this is a little ambiguous. Allow me to elaborate:
Here, you need merely specify exactly what your character brings to the table in a Daring Do-esque Action-Archaeologist setting. Like Linguist, for example. Don't pick this, as we already have one. It's just an example. They don't even have to do it as a profession. As long as they possess the skills, it's good. You can have more than one, but must have at least one skill.

Fuck you, Rockty. Just fuck you.
This isn't a question. It's an insult. Questions only, please.

Why did you make this RP and not just continue with Panzermole's version?
"Creative Differences".

"Creative Differences"?
That's all I'm going to say.

What rules are there for posting?
I'm a pretty laidback, overly creative, and extremely thorough GM. If you manage to go 'off the rails', as it were, it is likely I will have planned that area out in advance just in case you decide to go off the rails. Keep in mind that if you break any laws in the in-game world, there will be consequences for your characters ranging upon the severity of the crime. That being said, there are a few minor rules:

1. No clop. Wait, let me rephrase that. No detailed clop. It's fine if two characters feel like banging, just 'fade to black' and skip over the naughty bits.
2. No alicorns. I feel that I shouldn't need to specify this, but there you go. Ticket is the one and only exception to this rule. NOT EVEN IF IT'S TICKET.
3. Have fun. Talk to me if you aren't and we'll resolve it.
4. Godmodding is out of the question. Don't do it.
5. Fighting is Okay, within reason. I differ from Panzermole a bit on this one. Just let me know beforehand so it doesn't *ANVIL* me. In addition, before you fight, ask yourself why your character is going to fight. If the answer is anything except "It's in-Character for them and is exactly what they would do", DUN DO IT.
6. Octavia is best pony. This point is not to be argued unless somepony else defeats me and takes over. Then they can argue it all they want.

Will Daring Do make an appearance?
We talked about it in the last /ooc/ thread, but nopony ever volunteered. If somepony wants to play our favorite Indiana-Jones-Style Pegasus, by all means do it. Even if nopony plays as her, she may make an appearance anyway as an NPC... Or somepony thinks about her while reading a book. If you decide to play as Daring Do, use the TVTropes page located here for some ideas of family, ideology, characterization, etc. It's not required but worth a look:

What's that? You have other questions not listed on this OP?
Well, feel free to punch your question in right up there! [<3]

Boom Mike... You. Were not. Supposed. To post. Until. We. Meet. The. Attackers.

> Sighs exhaustedly.

I'll have to ask you to remove your last few posts. As eager as I know you are to begin, you being on the yacht right now is simply not feasible within the established universe and plan that we've already set forth.

> Beat

Shit, I knew I was forgetting something in the OP.

> Facehoofs

Okay, I'll state it concisely and clearly so there's no more confusion. It will spoil the early plot, but... fuck it.

> The Veterans (Dirk, Tinker, Asma, Glacia, Featherlight) meet up with the Griffons - essentially the Nazis of the setting.
> They hold off killing The Veterans despite having vastly superior firepower and numbers.
> The Veterans are instead taken into custody and remanded to the authority of the captain of one of the attacking vessels.
> Here's the important part: The Veterans meet The Recruits (That's you and Vinyl so far)
> What happens afterwards is largely up to you.

This initial timeline is important to the story. Yes, I know this is bordering on railroading, but after this initial set-up phase, I'll leave it drastically more open. The problem is I really am not a fan of overwhelming amounts of retcons if I can avoid it.

So, I'm just asking you to remove those two posts and wait just a little bit. (Few days IRL time, tops.) I will accelerate the timetable, seeing as you two are clearly anxious to get started.
