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.

Oh, and here's the character sheet I'm (probably) going to use:

Name: (Yep.)

Race: (Earth, Pegasus, Unicorn, possibly Griffon, Zebra, Minotaur, and any other crazy race you come up with... as long as I approve it.)

Appearance: (Short description of what you look like. Remember, low-tech for clothing.)

Bio: (Specifically: How you got your cutie mark, what it is, what your role was in the tribe, if any. Optionally: personality quirks, motivations, goals. And anything else I forgot.)

Skills: (What do you bring to the table as a potential pioneer? Combat techniques, survival skills, magic, glib, anything that is of use.)

Equipment: (More on this will be on the doc. For now just make up some kind of armour and weapon (if you have any) and consumables. There is no currency... well, there might be for other tribes. You wont have any of that, though.)

The doc: (Might not be open yet): https://docs.google.com/document/d/1dwGbweQVsxWMUtfXrqZVR-D3BwkPZh9kM2jyg_vauGk/edit

I am just used to there not actually being a game master, most rp's I have ever done just involved PC's each controlling Npc's on their own. I actually had that post ready to go before I realized what I was doing and deleted it to have him wait out the blockage.

"Oh by the way Sirara, nobody else has weapons besides you and Raffi and twlight. So you two will now be the tanks in case something happens. Try not to die from some random mook KK? KK"

I just realized I may have missed something important.


As Borak went searching for Sirara, he couldn't understand what the guards were saying until they got close.


Yet in the longhouse we could understand them/Laywing can understand Edjane.

So its not only Sirara's magic causing us to understand each other?

But apparently can bard.

I'm afraid I have some sad news.

The king is DEAD!...

Not really. Raffi, Cupcakinator, has resigned due to busyness. He had two kills to his name, and will be missed.

Unfortunately, this brings us down to three players... the minimum, I'm afraid. It doesn't seem like many other people on ponychan are lining up to join. I'll see if players from my other group are interested in joining this setting, something I don't like doing. I prefer for them to come willingly, without pressure from me. But I will do it. As it stands, out of the three games I run, this is my oldest and most thoroughly planned adventure, and I'd hate to see it die, like so may before it.

I would like to thank the few players that remain. Thank you for sticking with me for the past several months. Sorry we haven't gotten to the meat of the chapter yet, but it comes soon. Very soon. Stay tuned for developments!

hmm... I may have gone a bit overboard with that last post.


Oh well, I have an update about my schedule.

I have established with my boss that I think I am ready to work on my own shift. He mentioned he would need someone sunday morning on the 21'st and I asked to change my schedule from sat-sun afternoon to sat-sun morning, that way I can see what its like before I have a shift on my own.


That probably means that on Friday I will have to go to sleep after I get home from work ((Around 10)) in order to be fully rested for work at 7 am on saturday. Sooo tomorrow I might not be around much.

On the upside it means I'll be around saturday afternoon-early evenin


>>429518

Dang we lost Raffi! And sounds good to me.

Yup I will try to include his thoughts in my posts on a regular basis now.

But uhhh that probably means my posts will be longer... if it is a problem I will try to return to my previous posting style.

I am sick!

I was sick yesterday but it got worse today. I am gonna go lay down, maybe I will post later today. If not I will post tomorrow unless something catastrophic occurs!

Borak will follow the group if someone recommends something and your waiting for his approval or something assume he gives it ((As long as its not "HEY LETS GO MURDER EVERYTHING"))

>I am having difficulty breathing and everytime I breathe out it sounds like I am breathing through liquid/flem. IDK but I will going to a doctor to figure that out tomorrow. Just FYI in case I stop coming by for the next few days. It's been getting progressively worse this night.

Sorry I was kinda busy moving from one apartment building to another after finding my old place kinda trashed. Essentially I noped my way all the way to the new management and demanded they change my room.

My new roomates are so much better. No more waking up every god damn day to loud music and horrible smelling marijuana at 5 am.

When I wasn't moving I was pretty much chilling because I was tired @[email protected]

Alright guys, we're down to a couple posts a week. I have an idea, but I'm not sure if you'll like it.

I'm now running most of my RPs on the Bay12 forums. Bunch of players there, primarily shortposters, but still there. I'm thinking of moving this game over there. I'm not sure how many bronies there are, I've only seen a couple pony avatars.

Couple things about Bay12: There is no rolling system, so I'd have to roll the dice and tell you what you got. They have all the good forum things though. Like coloured text, strikethroughs, fonts, blah, blah, blah.

I'm gonna leave it up to you guys, though. If you're happy with the pace as it is, and/or you prefer a chan style site, tell me. Otherwise, I think this is the best bet for the continuation of the story.
