#Ask/invite #Canon: Trotswood #Semi-serious #OOC #Unicorn Master Race

Hello, and welcome to the Trotswood RP. Now, we are an Ask/Invite RP, meaning we need one thing from you, before you RP in the thread. All we need, is a short (Or long if you want), application. Now, we don’t need anything to extensive. Just Blood type, history of medical procedures, three signed letters of recommendation, and the head of Crawmerax a brief history, including any combat, skills, how they found the town, and anything else you’d like to include.

Please, we don’t mind if you use sign up sheets from other canons, but we don’t use stats, so please leave them off. Here in Trotswood, if you want combat, we suggest you talk with the one you’re fighting about what system to use. Some of us like rolls, others like honor systems, and some of us like stat based. Talk about it before you fight, to prevent an unhappy mix up.

Now, as for applications, we’ve gone over what we need, but there are a few extra guidelines. Just some basic, common sense and canon specific rules that will help us streamline the application process, and get you approved faster.

>No Humans (We’re “Show Canon” in that way. Please keep to races found in the show. However, Hybrids of show races are welcome in many cases.)
>Direct crossovers are discouraged. However, if the application sheet seems solid, there is a chance you’ll be passed, and approved.
>Please be proper with your power. We’re not going to reject you, if you’re a god, provided you’re not “Supergod The Bes Around”.

And that’s it. Once you have an application, long or short, simply post it in this thread, and the OP, and a team of “Half OPs”.

OP: Wind Chaser
Half OPs: Scorch, Unonemous, Enyo, Vyne, Trans Equestrian Orchestra (TEO/Mint)

A side note about the Map. There are a limited amount of houses on there, but that doesn’t mean we’re limited in how many characters can join. We can easily expand the map, as we gain more and more players.

Pay us no mind; we are but a troupe of gongoozlers, come to behold the happenings.
>> No. 457872
First off, I said the first three things because it will take any command and has no emotions so if someone tells it to kill someone else, it will... well, kill them...
Though it can be very dangerous, it will take any command you give it, say "Stop current task." and it stops. You may look at "If commands contradict, it cannot do both and will only do what ever command was given first." and think that wouldn't work but the command isn't contradicting it's task, it's telling it to stop its task.

Onto catalysts!
A catalyst is just anything that stores or transfers energy, like a battery. And casting a spell simply works by thought. If you know how to cast the spell and have the energy to do so, you can cast the spell.

Going alright, I suppose. All the new applicants we got before bailed before even really doing anything, like they all do. It's also fucking cold. How about you?

Also: What show? It's just an application.

Well, that answers exactly nothing at all.

What happenings? Since when were Trotswood happenings at all something that got onlookers? Even though it's one of the oldest RPs, the general pop of /rp/ rarely payed any mind at all to Trotswood.

Ah, I see. Simple enough answer. And, I pretty well already knew what a Catalyst is, just making sure that I knew what his does specifically, since people like to get creative with their characters, and all.
>> No. 457874
Did you just imply I'm not creative? I am not green good sir!
>> No. 457875
That...What? Nothing about that reply at all implied that you weren't creative. Quite the opposite, as a matter of fact.

So, you're "Gray". Right. Well, Gray, what brings you to the Trotswood thread, exactly? And, is there any specific reason you never came by until this application came up?

Right...Well, you don't get better at RPing without RPing some more, and stuff. Is there anything at all else about this character you need to share? Questions toward me, or the others, and stuff?

Those of us who peruse such things are forever observant and free to delight in the seemingly inconsequential eccentricities of going-ons, and the queerness of participants yet untenured. Without, of course, casting any undesirable aspersions on his peers.

A very morbid curiosity, to put it simply. Pay us no mind.

Right, so, you're one of the many Pchan lurkers who go around and observe signups, and other random happenings, just to see what comes along. Doesn't keep me from finding it strange that this one application brought in three observers for no discernible reason.

It...It's just a part of the character? What's that got to do with anything regarding the mods, or anything RP-related at all? Heh...Any way, I guess I'll go speak with the others and get a verdict, unless you have any other questions

And why does this application pique your morbid curiosity?

I kind of have to pay all three of you mind, since this is my canon's signup thread, and I have to monitor the ins and outs of it.
>> No. 457883
How much wood would a... Never mind, I'm good.
>> No. 457884
We came to laugh at the new guy because the three-blip warning at the start is lulzworthy for so many reasons.

Any questions?
>> No. 457885
Well, alright then, I'll go and chat it up with the others.

And why not just lurk and observe what would happen, instead of bringing attention to yourself , and stuff? Don't really see the point in it all
>> No. 457886
u wot m8?
>> No. 457887
You asked.

We came to laugh at your application. Don't take it personally; taken out of context it just sounds like the perfect setup for some truly ridiculous trolling.

Well, I'm not very happy that no one dropped by to help bring in a second opinion...Sorry. I figured at least one of them would have dropped by. I kinda had to leave to do other things when I dropped the message
>> No. 457905
So are we still waiting or is my entry into the RP up to you?

Need sleep, will look at post after like a 2 hour nap.
>> No. 457906
There's really only 3 OPs left. the main OP Wind, who runs the canon, along with me and Scorch. Aside from that, one has disappeared, one has quit, and the other is much too busy to help us with this.
>> No. 457907
I dunno... you get to interpret any commands given so at the end of the day it still is roughly your fault, also from what you imply this character will kill someone. I'm not too keen on approving it.
>> No. 457908
I don't have a issue with either of these, so I suppose I approve.
>> No. 457909
Those've already been approved, silly firepone
>> No. 457910
>> No. 457911
Approved, just take care, the town is explosive sometimes.
>> No. 457912

Hooray! Trotswood officers unite!
>> No. 457914
Well that's why point #3 is there. It's a robot, it will take things literally and if it doesn't understand, it will ask you to rephrase the command.
Is this to my character?
*golf clap*
>> No. 457915
Yes, the answer was toward your character, meaning that you are now approved to join Trotswood
>> No. 457916
Cool, I'm going back to bed.
>> No. 457917
Have a nice sleep
>> No. 457952
I'm glad I have tomorrow/today off. It's 1:22 AM and I just woke up
Is anyone awake to RP or should I wait till morning?

I am game, meet up in the trotswood thread
>> No. 458080
Is this still a thing? Last post in either thread was 8 days ago...
>> No. 458200
It kinda is, but it's hard for some people to keep track of the thread due to differing schedules, not to mention the amazing number of people that post once, then never come back, and the handful of people that have directly abandoned us.

Nyaa nyaa~ Well getting around to this finally.

Name: Lava
Race: Pegasus
Age: 20
Occupation: Weather pony.
Cutie mark: Medical Red Cross.

Growing up within the east side of Cloudsdale, pressured just like several other pegasus early on, high expectations were held for each of them to be able to fly or competed in hopes they’ll grow up to be great fliers. Detesting all that pressure, those high standards, even the competing to be honest, Lava in turn veered away towards aerial ballet. Though more of a private pastime, few might get the chance to watch. Her day job has unfortunate ups alongside downs, as managing weather is quite taxing even for pegasus ponies. She does enjoy having a little fun here or there during work, or at times teasing some friends with a kitty costume if not her kitsune one.

Reason for moving to trotswood: Having heard a few rumors back in cloudsdale about possible openings, she saw it both an opportunity and chance to get away from Cloudsdale really. Be herself more than what other ponies wanted to impose upon them.
