With the rapid advancement of technology following the discovery and developement of so-called techmagic, Equestria profited into a golden age.

The rampant advancement of mechanics and electronics made the world smaller and more close-knit. Gryphons and ponies became closer and ever, and even Diamond Dogs - reclutantly - added themselves to the global society.

Great accomplishments were made. Radio. Television. Internet. Quick transport. And soon, ponies and nonponies learned how into space.

Plans for the first permanent, interracial space station, the Orbital, were set into motion. For it to prosper, a mechanism of long-term suspension of life had to be created. The Hibernatus Program, developing cutting edge high-techmagic cryo-sleep chambers, was put into motion.

Tests subjects were needed.


I want to start a new canon, set in the near-future Equestria. Technology level just above what we have in our current world.

The characters would be test subjects for testing the new cryo-sleep chambers of Hibernatus Program, set to cryo-sleep for five years for a handsome reward.

What can go wrong, right~?


I accept ponies (not alicorns!), gryphons and Diamond Dog characters. I might accept a baby or young adult dragon, but not more than one and I want a good reason for such a character to enroll in Hibernatus Program.

No superpowered Mary Sues, please. If you're an unicorn, you're less powerful than Twilight Sparkle. If you're a pegasus, you're slower than Rainbow Dash, etc.

If you'd want to enlist, I'd ask you for a character concept - name, gender, race, age, description, good and weak sides, cutie mark (if applicable) and a reason to enlist in the Hibernatus Program. After we get some people in this, I'll make a post describing how to stat out your characters. I'll be using a slightly modified Blowhard's system (dude's awesome).


What I want: proper grammar, pictures. I strongly encourage clear formatting and posts longer than one line.

Anypony interested~?

Oh! Almost forgot. Mane 6 are a no-go. I'm ok with using a background character like, say, Lyra, but keep in mind that the canon starts in about 10 years into the Equestrian future.

Welp, sorry buddy, not in this canon I'm planning.

Not really, unless they have a reason to.

They are test subjects for prototype cryo-sleep chambers and are to spend 5 years in there for a generous recompensation. The chambers, if a success, will be used in the assembled interracial space station Orbital.

Name: Sleight of Hand

Gender: Male

Race: Unicorn

Age: 40 before he went into cryosleep.

Description: Sleight of Hand has always been a traveler, from unfortunate beginnings to the bitter man he found himself now, those travels have always been hard to. Born in the pirate nation of BlackPort to a single mother, his luck had been going down hill since then, she died giving birth to him, and the young orphan was raised by the barkeep she worked for, Old Pete. Old Pete wasn't exactly the perfect father, but then again he had never wanted to be one. Still, he was the best thing to happen to the young Unicorn, who, at the time was named Card Star. Sleight learned tricks of the trade growing up at the bar, having been taught five different card games by the time he was seven, his father saw he had a true talent for them, and on his ninth birthday, Pete gave Card Star his lucky deck, an odd little thing that had seen him through thick and thin with never a scratch or crumple on it. It was on Card's ninth birthday, he lost everything but those cards. Pete had been saving up money, and had planned to take the unicorn to the nearby continent of Equestria for a holiday. Pete never reached Equestria, Card Star didn't make it for three years, at least not its soil.

During the journey, a nightmarish storm blew the ship from the protected routes, the only current lanes that were free from the predation of the pirates that called BlackPort home, before any of the passengers could even finish a prayer for safety, pirates were upon them. Each and every occupant of the ship was butchered and their valuables taken, apart from Card, the only child aboard at the time. The captain of the ship decided to take Card with him, his last cabin boy had hung himself in the brig. Card spent the next three years aboard the ship, mopping the floors, cleaning the latrines and otherwise tending to the needs of the ship, it was a harsh life, and his beatings were frequent, sometimes simply for fun. But Card survived, he kept his head down low, and kept on trucking until he saw a chance for escape.

A few weeks after his eleventh birthday - which went un-celebrated - he received that chance, the pirate galleon, along with several others, had decided upon raiding a small port city, and whilst they all went screaming on hollering into the city, torch and blade in hand, they left the young colt on the ship entirely alone, grabbing a single bag of gold, and his beloved deck of cards- the only thing remaining of his father- Card Star vaulted the railing of the boat, landed on the jetty and didn't stop running until he was out of sight of the town in its totality, slumping against a tree he let sleep take him, sheer relief knocking the life from the boy. It was now he met his second family.

Card Star woke up to find himself under the ministrations of an elderly mare, a leaf coloured shawl spread over her shoulders and a silver hairpin holding her grey mane in place, looking down over himself, the colt's momentary panic left him as he saw the bandages, stitches and and painkilling salves spread over his body to help him recover from the wounds suffered under the pirates hooves. Card Star had been found by a travelling gypsy caravan, they had been coming into town to sell their wares when they saw it ablaze, quickly absconding, the elderly mare had seen the passed out foal on the way and had tossed him onto a cart, knowing all too well that if he had, had any family in the town, he didn't any more.

It was amongst the gypsies Card Star picked up his second skill, music, they taught him the joy that music could bring others, and they brought to the fore the talent his mother had passed on to him. His mothers name had been Siren Song, a beautiful singer without compare, Card would never quite reach the peaks she had, but his gift was profound nonetheless.

After months travelling with the gypsies, Card decided as nice as they were, he wanted to settle somewhere, escape the constant travel and find some comfort in life. The gypsies didn't blame him for this, leaving the colt at another port village, far smaller than the one he had made his escape at, and so beneath the attention of the pirates. With what little gold they could spare, and his own little bag, Card trotted into town to find his future.

And a happy future it proved to be, the tavernkeeper of this town and his wife had never been able to have a child of their own, and the elderly couple were glad to take the young boy in, giving the boy a shelter and comfort he hadn't known for three years now. It was in this town Card Star also met his first, and only, true love. Her name was Sea Breeze, and she was a year older than him. Spunky, lively, funny and an utter tomboy, she and Card spent most their days together or with the other teenages, playing soccer, exploring the woods, going swimming, climbing the cliffs, chasing one another around the town, and even occasionally *GASP* attending the local schoolhouse. Though he didn't realize it until she made her move, Card Star found himself falling for Sea Breeze. One day, she came to him looking more troubled than he had ever seen her, and she asked if she could get some advice, he of course said yes.

"Card, if you... If you loved someone, but were afraid about how they'd react, would you tell them?"
"... Of course, you can only try your best after all, if they don't, life goes on, if they do. Great! Lifes too short to worry."

That last word was cut off midway through by the mare planting her lips to Card's and wrapping her arms tight around him. That was the happiest day of Card Star's life, and no other ever managed to match it. After many happy months together, they decided to take a vacation to one of the big cities together, their parents, adopted and otherwise footed the bill and the two lovebirds found themselves on a train to Manehattan. It was here everything went wrong.

The two spent about a week doing the usual touristy things, exploring, buying junk food and just plain junk, but it was on a late Friday night their holiday and lives were ruined. Chasing one another through dark alleystreets, the two stumbled upon a mob operation by mistake, huge supplies of drugs coming into the city through this warehouse, corrupt cops watched the doors and the few who weren't on the mobs payroll were unceremoniously executed one by one within, the children had the misfortune of stumbling on one such execution, and they didn't go un-noticed. Barely escaping the clutches of the mob, they made their way home by train, not even bothering to take their luggage, just what they had on them at the time.

Weeks later, the mob arrived in their town, searching for them, going door to door and interrogating the helpless townsfolk.

The tavernkeeper was the first to die, he had knocked out three of them when they threatened his wife before one shot him through the head. Card Star and Sea Breeze realised now, the only way they'd escape these people, the only way they'd protect their town was if they left it all together. They met with the best mage in the town, and he cast a long lasting illusion on the pair. Card Star became Ace of Hearts, Sea Breeze became Storm's Gale. They boarded trains going opposite directions, and Ace never saw her again...

This was when Ace's travels began in full, every time he settled down in a town, found a new place to call home, someone would come after him, he'd lose someone he loved. He'd change his identity again and move on, eventually he gave up on friendship all togeehter, he was charming enough to rake in plenty of one night stands, and that emotionless physical love came to be enough for him. Persona's passed, he became a multitude of different people throughout his travels.

But then they pushed him too far, attacked while walking down a low country road, bullets flying for his head. Something broke inside Spades King's head, the bullets passed through empty air, his magic had come forth within him, teleporting out of the way of the bullets, his own weapons, black cards ablaze with red energy began flying back, in moments, the mafia goons were dead, their bodies bloodied craters. Spades King stared at them for a long time, laughter breaking from his lips, a grin splitting his cheeks and never easing. He adopted a new guise. The Jokers Wild.

Jokers Wild began making his way towards Manehattan, killing any who angered him along the way, discovering more and more about his own abilities, his natural brawniness only supplemented by the strange skills he found himself with. Reaching Manehattan, the first thing he did was burn that damned warehouse to the ground, laughing like Satan with delight, the day the mob died. He sung all the while as he cleaved through their ranks, eventually arriving within the mob bosses own home, his daughter, his wife, hell even his pet, they were killed, left in a pile by the door for the boss to find. When he did, the man broke down screaming, falling to his knees and sobbing, his operation, years strong had fallen in the course of a few weeks. Jokers Wild walked down to the stairs and ended him, not with magic, he simply beat the man until his heart had stopped and the white tiles beneath him had turned pure red.

Jokers Wild was never seen again, the police searched and searched- those that still lived, but the creature who had tore down the corrupt hierarchy of Manehattan was gone with only a single jokers card on the mob bosses brow left behind.

Finally free from his hunters, Jokers Wild shed a persona one last time, finally settling into one close to the boy he had once been, he named this new him: Sleight of Hand.

Sleight of Hand's travels were far more relaxed than any of those who'd come before him, he finally felt able to enjoy life once more, travelling from country to country, city to city, bringing joy with his music and fury with his uncanny ability to never lose a game of cards. He left a town with women waving him a happy farewell just as often as he did laughing into the air as buckshot flew through it and his hooves danced over the moonlit dirt.

But Sleight was beginning to grow old now, or at least, he thought he should be. By the time he was forty, the stallion still barely looked twenty, no doctor could explain his slowed ageing, and he wondered just how long it would be he stuck around on this plane. He thought he might even be immortal, though that wasn't true. This was why he volunteered, what was five years to a man without age. It was an interesting program and he saw it as a chance to really do some good. He had no close friends or permanent lovers he'd be leaving behind, so there was nothing tying him down. So it was that Sleight of Hand, once Card Star, shut his eyes in that tube. Who knows what he wakes up to.

Cutie Mark: A single black card, a golden capital A in the top left and bottom right corners of the card.

Strong points: His card magic, music, playing cards, and brawling.

Weak Points: Conventional magic besides telekinesis, gunplay, technology.

Name: Garret
Age: 24 (in dog years)
Species: Diamond Derg
Gender: Male
Description: Less built then other Diamond Dogs, whitish fur with a grey muzzle, blue eyes. Does not use the same feral response other members of his species do in certain situations, however nature delt him his cards, and that instinct is lying in wait somewhere deep down.
Always wears a simple set of armor.

Strengths: Affinity for repairing things and operating technology of the day. Excellent with long range weapons such as sniper rifles.
Weaknesses: Up close and personal combat, shies away from social interaction, enjoys calibrating not word filtered with an almost obsessive focus, magic *snort snort*,fetch.
Reason for Entry:
Spending his early childhood in the mines like his ancestors, Garret possessed an advantage over his brethren in intelligence. With little else to use it on, he studied the different metals and gems his pack mined and set about uncovering their properties and uses. His kin was quick to notice this unusual behavior, teasing, bullying, then beating and eventually forcing him to oust himself from the pack to pursue a life more suited to someone like him. Garret's journey took him to many places, sometimes staying for a night or for months, working, building, understanding. He found a knack for repairing the machinery which was becoming more and more a part of everyone's lives. Over the years, he built his knowledge further, studying however he could, which most of the time was in public libraries. Racism against dim-witted dogs kept him from attending even the international colleges, so he buried himself in what he could find. Eventually, he was noticed by the scientific community at large, and upon being shown the new Hibernatus program, volunteered immediately. A curious sort, he asked many questions about the program before the actual event. Whether they were answered or not remains a myyysterryyyy ooooooh- but no, I wont write your storyline for you.
So Garret seeks to advance science and technology, while also hoping to earn respect from his family.

Alethia, Mare, around the age of 20, her Cutie mark is a Shield because of her job as a Royal Guard, her Special Talent is being forced to know whether the last line said to her is true or false.
She's a nice girl altogether, But she's scared easily and if she holds her ability it makes her kinda crazy.

She took part of the program because she hopes that she could get a treatment for her talent (Possibly a nullifier of some sort and such), because she hates being forced, and she doesn't exactly enjoy the action itself either.
>> No. 440792
I meant she could use the money to get a better treatment.

Name: Alethia
Age: 20
Sppecies: Pony Unicorn
Gender: Female
Description: Blue Mare with brown hair, her mane done into a braid.
Strengths: Alethia originated from the swamps, making her quite hardy. Her Special Talent also makes it impossible to lie to her.(Her ability is more like mind reading, not like a truth Machine.)
Weaknesses: Alethia is easily scared, and becomes mentally unstable when she tries to hold her Ability for prolonged amounts of time.
Reason to enter the Capsule: Alethia's Talent is unvoluntary, forcing her to know whther one is lying or not without her consent. She hopes that the funds she'll recieve from the experiment could help her find a treatment that stops her talent.

Alright, people. Now that we have some potential players and waitred a bit, let's get to the second part - making your character sheets. I'll be using modified Blowhard's system.

Each character is described by a set of characteristics ranking on the scale of -1 to 5. The higher, the better. A score of 0 means that the character cannot normally succeed at an action, but in certain favorable situations it might be possible (shooting point-blank, for an example). A score of -1 means that the character cannot succeed, end of story.

Those Attributes are:

Ranged Combat
Melee Combat

*Special: dependant on race, a character gets 0 to 2 Attributes in this place: Diamond Dogs and Earth Ponies get none, Unicorns get Magic, Pegasi and Griffons get Flight, and Dragons get both Flight and Firebreathing.

Endurance and Willpower can't be worse than 1.

You get 25 points to spend on those Attributes. Endurance and Willpower start at 1, rest at 0. You can lower them to get more points, of course. 5th point costs double.

You can Specialize in an Attribute, selecting a narrow field in which the character is exceptionally good at, at the cost of versality. Your Attribute is treated as 1 better within Specialisation, but 1 worse in all others. For an example:

Technology (Computers) 3 means that when dealing with Computers, your Attribute is treated as 4, and in every other instance of interacting with Technology, as 2.

You can also spend those points on Special Traits - those cost 3 (minor) or 5 (major) points.

For an example, Alethia's special talent would be:

Truth or False (minor) - Alethia passively knows if the last statement is true or false (or at least if the speaker believes it to be true or false), and immediately blurts it out.

You have 3 days to post character sheets here. Anyone that fails to do so (or at least to contact me and say (s)he needs more time) is treated as if (s)he is no longer interested.

I hope that's clear enough - if you have any doubts, contact me here or via Skype (VarmusTheBrony).
>> No. 440803
Endurance 4
Willpower 4
Ranged Combat -1
Melee Combat (Guarding Technics) 4
Stealth -1
Athletics 3
Perception 2
Charisma 4
Technology -1
Magic 3

Passive: Truth or False (minor)- Alethia automatically knows if the last statement says to her is True or false.

There's been a lot of tinkering with this, and I made sure to doublecheck, but if a Mistake has been made, Lemme know.
>> No. 440806
That sums up to 22 points, you got 3 more to spend.
>> No. 440809

>> No. 440812
Three points go to the Passive.
You said yourself that I need to spend three points at the passive.
>> No. 440814
Endurance 4 <- 3 points
Willpower 4 <- 3 points
Ranged Combat -1 <- -1 point
Melee Combat (Guarding Technics) 4 <- 4 points
Stealth -1 <- -1 point
Athletics 3 <- 3 points
Perception 2 <- 2 points
Charisma 4 <- 4 points
Technology -1 <- -1 point
Magic 3 <- 3 points

Passive: Truth or False (minor)- Alethia automatically knows if the last statement says to her is True or false. <- 3 points

3+3-1+4-1+3+2+4-1+3+3 = 22

You got three more points.
>> No. 440815
Two points in Endurance and one in Perception.

By the way, you should know that Dom cannot get online for the time being, he has no idea when he can again, so he wont be able to fill this out before your deadline. Would you mind maybe hibernating HA his status until he can?
>> No. 440900
I know about Dom's problem, he's hibernated alright ;)

I don't think we'll start before he gets back, this is just to weed out people that abandoned the thread.

You can remove that "Special 0" part, btw, you just don't have it ;)

Lightning is a 21 year old stallion. He is very wise and fit. He has spent his life in his manor, located in the Everfree, but has recently moved out because of a parasprite infestation. They destroyed his home and everything he owned. While walking through the Everfree to find a place in Ponyville, he was attacked by two manticores. His pet manticore, Mia, managed to kill both, but at the cost of her own life. His work was his life until he failed at stopping a hurricane (part of his life was being captain of the Dangerous Weather Patrol. His entire story is on the /ooc/ room.) and it destroyed an entire village. He was immediately fired and left with nothing in his life for ten years until he heard about the Hibernatus program. Looking for another chance at life, he immediately applied for it. (I strongly suggest reading the first paragraph of his story.)

Alright, glad you know.
>> No. 441340
Alright... I'd like an abridged version of the story here, I really dislike thread hopping. You don't have to write a three-post-worth of story, but something more would be better. And if that's alright with you, I'd really like you to use the template everyone else used ( >>437267 for an example).

Name: Conway

Age 27

Species Diamond Dog

Gender Male

Strengths Computers. Mostly does the coding, hacking portions of it, but can handle the wiring of a computer fairly well. But only in computers, because of the specialization rules! A combination of lugging computers around everywhere (things are heavy mang!) and having claws has made it so he kinda can't not be okay at melee combat. Also, years of staring at a monitor, looking for that ONE FUCKING SEMICOLON has given him excellent perception. Why doesn't he need glasses? Cuz fuck you I needed to put the points somewhere

Weaknesses Looks down at most other people, thinking of himself as an intellectual superior. Has no idea how a gun, bow, or sling works.

Description A small and lithe Diamond Dog, I'll post a picture of him as soon as I can be damned to draw him. Gray fur.

Reason for Entry Why, the money, of course! Who would join this for any other reason? Not like he has a family to work for! Haha!


Endurance: 4

Willpower: 3

Ranged Combat: -1

Melee Combat: 4

Stealth: 2

Athletics: 3

Perception: 5

Charisma: -1

Technology: (Coding and Computer Wiring) 5

And now it begins, the story of how I had to change a million things.

Alright! 25.

So, the current character roster is:

Alethia, the timid truth-o-scope.

Quill, the dafty dragoness.

Garrett, the mangy mutt.

Conway, the coding collie.

Dom, the brash bearpony.

Midnight Sparkle, Canis and Lightning failed to deliver the character sheets so they don't play.

We'll start today or tomorrow. Sorry for this being so delayed.
