#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.

How many approvals do I need?

My character is the lunar constallation of Aquarius, ponified. She has an attractive personality that leads her to be shy, sensitive, gentle and patient. She is very strong willed, however, seeking truth above all things. She is honest enough to change her opinion, but can hold it firmly if she has enough reason to do so.

She has a breadth of vision that brings diverse factors into a whole, and can see both sides of an argument without shilly-shallying as to which side to take. Consequently she is unprejudiced and tolerant of other points of view, and even if they do not accept it (the argument) herself.

She is quick, active and persevering without being self-assertive, and express themselves with reason, moderation and sometimes, a dry humor. And probably one of the biggest pointers: nearly always intelligent, concise, clear and logical. SHe is strongly imaginative and psychically intuitive.

But at the same time she can keep her standards high on deciding who she befriends, and who she loves, sometimes this high standard will often lead her to be a loner.

Among the faults to which she has are fanatical eccentricity, wayward egotism, excessive detachment and an inclination to retreat from life and society, and a tendency to be extremely dogmatic in her opinions.

She always is carrying her water gourd with her, in which she can have a seemingly endless stream of water pour out, and she can also scoop up and soak up water endlessly.

She is essentially... all that is entailed in an Aquarius, who was made as a protector of sorts for earth, along with the other constellations, and her travels have brought her to this town.

Character Name: Rarity
Age: 21. Normally it's not very polite of you to ask a lady for her age, but for the circumstances, I shall comply.
Race: Unicorn
Sex: Female. No, a 'check' isn't required, nor permitted.
History: Ever since getting her cutie mark working on costumes for a school pageant, Rarity loved designing and fashion and knew that was what she wanted, neigh, was destined to do! After her work with various villains, Twilight becoming OP an alicorn gave her a chance to get to work a bit more on her designs and passion. Working hard through her life, she became a successful designer, known widely in her local market. But when you want more business and more success, what do you do? Expand. While traveling down a road, the clean mare would find herself at the town entrance of Trotswood, looking to spread her designs.
Personality: Prim, and a proper lady, she's not accustomed or a fan of very many uncouth behaviors or ill-mannered ponies. She finds disgust in things of dirt or miss-matched clothing, but is willing to work and look past some things, and help make the world a cleaner and more civilized place.
Special Talent and Cutie Mark: Fashion designing/3 Diamonds
Shipping Preferences: Bisexual. A proper lady does not keep a discriminative or closed mind on relationships. A mare wants what a mare wants, even if it happens to be another mare.
Combat: A lady would never want to conduct herself in battle, but if provoked, she must know some ways of defending herself.
Others: She's fabulous.... and slightly derogatory of the official canon. I know a canon character usually brings up careful, red flags, I'm willing to work through any questions and concerns.
>> No. 442125
I certainly don't mind a canon character being involved in the canon, but what do you others think?

I approve, personally.

We're not usually huge on Canon characters. But I've seen you in AOS, you play her pretty much better then anyone I've seen play her. Also, i don't think Rarity is critically linked to anyone's backstory.

Oh look... this is back around Pchan's way.

If I join back up, I'll have joined six times!

....or maybe seven.... I forget.

Anyway.... lets bring back Night.

Night Life.
Dragon/sphinx- Unless thats no longer allowed, then possibly a lion. Unless that is also not allowed. ^_^
Little magic, mostly having to do with crafting and creating. Avid tinkerer, likes building and creating. Can hold his own in a fight, most dragons can.

Night found Trotswood while flying north on his way home in the mountains. Having no desire to deal with his mother and her many suitors he decided to settle in the area for a bit.
Young for a dragon, Night is normally reserved around strangers and hasn't spent much time around normal folk. Having been raised more or less by the village near his home, he doesn't see much difference between species, Gryphons, Dragons, Ponies, he doesn't mind.

Okay, I just have a few question real quick.
We see that she's a unicorn, fifteen, we have colors, so description is down. (I don't know if the pic is a black box for anyone else)
History/Why she's in Trotswood: So, she's here for adventure, that's good. Living life. We don't really need the combat category, though it does bring up a question. How did a 15 year old mare become highly skilled in combat? I see that she's skilled in many forms of magic, but a little more information would be nice.

If you can tell me why she's experienced in combat (Including what kinds) and what kind of magic she's highly skilled in, i'll gladly approve.

Yay! This is back! I hope you guys don't mind if I try to join again.

*A candle flickers to life, illuminating two ponies, one holding a booklet and quill, and the other looking very annoyed at the first. The one not holding the book looked very peculiar. Older, but not yet decrepit, his wrinkled face was a deep royal blue, his mane once a glorious gold and purple, but now only a faded shock of silver and yellow. He wore a strange getup, a blue robe which swept the floor, and a top hat of the same hue.

"So you mean to tell me you want me to tell you about myself? I have quite the long story and I despise repeating myself. Are you ready?"
"Yes, sir, but I..."
"Then ask your questions! I haven't all day."
"O-Okay... Umm... What is your name?"

"Really? Really that's one of your ques... *sigh.* ...It's Cicero"

"And Cicero, how old are you?"

"Three hundred and nine year, six months, two days, and four hours."

[/i]"But... But, how?!"[/i]

"I'm a wizard. Thats all you need to know. Next question."

"Oh... Okay... Umm... tell me a bit about yourself.

"I'm a very old horse with many years left to come. I'm grumpy most of the time, hear voices that arent there, and have conversations with myself because I need a professional opinion. I'm looking for the next adventure, the next town in need of saving, the next batch of fools who think me mad when they don't see the signs around them. I'm a fan of chocolate pudding. Anything else?"

"No... No, that's pretty good... Mr. Cicero, what did you do before this?

"I was one of the archmages up at Celestia's school for gifted unicorns, arguably the best transmuter and evocater in Equestria, save for old Celly herself. I found myself fired, for poor conduct, and antiquated methods of punishment. Hoofscrews are perfectly humane if you ask me. Afterwords, I traveled the world, meeting far more interesting people than if i'd stayed here. I've quelled a few rebellions, helped another few succeed, battled beasts, found peace, had it taken from me, and won it back. I've done things you would dismiss as fancy, and met things that were the subject of legend. And right now, i'm talking to a little college student who needs to write a term paper."

"Quite uh... Quite right.... What will you do next?"

"Most likely, I'll move on. I'm looking for somewhere to settle down for a time, perhaps find my next adventure. Or perhaps simply grow bored and die. We'll see."

I see... So tell me, what is your special talent?

"Now that's a question worth asking. Most people would assume my talent is magic. They'd be wrong. My talent lies more around the area of inflicting change! On others, myself, or the world around me, if it's one way and I make it another I'm happy."

Alright then.... One last question... Have you ever loved anypony? And are you willing to love again?

"... Question time's over"

*The candle blew out.*


If you guys have any questions, feel free to tell me! Just thought i'd do a bit of creative writing.

Mid, the mods talked about it a bit, and the sheet just needs more. You gave us three sentences that don't really tell us more then the bare minimum. We need a little more.

Hailing from the heartlands bordering Equestria towards the sea, Aiwathadegwond Degwaiwatha arrives in Trotswood, seeking adventure and exploration in new lands. Aiwathadegwond is a tall female felinesque quadrapedal creature, as tall as most ponies, dressed in furs decorated with an assortment of colorful feathers. Her golden eyes are large and slanted, her fur short and striped with earth colors.
Aiwathadegwond is a native tribesmare from the south of the continent, a region largely unsettled by modern equines. Her home and tribe are settled near the mouth and along the southern banks of a great river that stretches upward and into Equestria.
Like most of her tribe, she possesses keen eyesight, especially at night, extraordinary hearing, and the ability to bring forth spirits of the earth through song.

Fire Magic, cause arson. Water magic, cause boiling someone from.the inside out, and dark magic, for destructive tendencies

Immediate red flag on the boiling someone from the inside.

Even though I like the idea, I don't like the ability to just kinda insta-gib someone
>> No. 444382
Are you going to play her as an immortal in any way? And I don't think we can pass someone who can boil others from the inside.

Well, I currently can't approve her.

And no. Because that can just be 'lol, I freeze your blood'. I honestly don't think I can approve her without some nerfs. Dark magic is way to broad. Fire magic, same thing. Categories won't due, I need specifics.
>> No. 444391
mmhmm. ice instead of water, so no boiling
>> No. 444392
hmmhmmhmm... She can create fireballs, simple flames, and control said fire. she can't control any water inside another being, but she can soak them, encase them in ice. and for dark magic, she can enchant items, and use a arcane magic bomb.
>> No. 444393
How big is the bomb, what enchantments, I'm going to have to ask that you cut out a few elements, because most characters tend to stick to one, and three or more seems just unnecessary, not to mention unrealistic.
>> No. 444394
hmm... dropping the water, besides a basic water spell. dropping fire besides a basic fire spell. the bomb takes the form of a bundle of a small block of C4. and as for enchantments, she can imbue items with Dark energy, making them burn those they hit.
>> No. 444395
Okay, so, she can make a flame, she can make a little water, C4 is a no. Under a pound can cause a pretty massive amount of destruction, and I'll okay the dark energy, so long as she can't apply it to anything much bigger then a knife.
>> No. 444396
okay, half stick of tnt? and she only ever uses it for her cutting blades
>> No. 444397
No, again. A half stick can crack cement, set off car alarms,deafen others, and damage structures, and turn a washing machine into a shrapnel bomb. I'll be honest. I've seen how you play her in other canons, and I'd be wary, even if she wasn't a villain.
>> No. 444398
okay, no arcane bomb then. sides that, keeping everything else.
>> No. 444399
So, she can produce a flame, she can produce water, and she can enchant knives. How big is the fire, how much water, and how intense and long the dark magic spell lasts.
>> No. 444400
the flame is a small flame, she only ever uses it to torch homes. the water is a medium sized amount, for fire mishaps, and the enchantments last 7 turns of battle
>> No. 444401

Name: Shade Cloud
Age: 20
Description: Dark blue coat with brown hair that has streaks of teal in it, and red eyes
Race: earth pony
Gender: Mare
Backstory: Shade was born in a backwater town in the outskirts of Equestria. Not everypony heard of Hoofington, because of how small it was, and the fact that it was not on any maps.
Shade's parents were not the brightest of folks, or the wealthiest. But one thing about them was that they were drunks. One night after a crazy party they came home and Mrs. Cloud became pregnant with Shade. The alcohol messed with the child before it was born, and when time came and she came out, her eyes where a blood red. A birth defect from the alcohol.
Her parents began drinking more after she was born, they didn't want to care for the child, and constantly scolded her whenever she did anything to try to be helpful, sometimes even going beyond scolding. Years of constant abuse for being nice and secluded like she was, caused something to trigger, a phobia... the fear of being her.
A voice in her head started speaking to her, telling her how to make all the pain stop. Letting that voice take control, she took on a second personality, one that was cold hearted, and cruel to anypony that tried to help her, make friends with her, or anything of the sort to try to make her happy. The only thing that made her happy was the suffering of others.

I don't know if I'm supposed to post my characters, but I'll go ahead and do it just to be safe. Also, I'm baaaaaaaack.

Name: Storm Blade
Age: 32
Description and Race: See Pic.
Cutie Mark: A large sword shaped like a bolt of lightning.
Backstory: Raised in an orphanage since he can remember, Storm was always a strange one. Being forced to stay away from the other foals due to his tremendous strength has left him quiet and anti-social. The only reason he could even act like a normal pony was the enchanted bracers he wears to limit his strength. He only removes it when the need is great as prolonged exposure causes massive pain as the muscles continue to grow until they burst. His strength and quiet behavior was noticed and he was recruited into the Royal Guard. He rose through the ranks quickly due to his natural combat ability, however due to an accident involving one of his subordinates stealing his bracers, he was forced to retire and sent to Trotswood with his wife, Song Blade.
>> No. 445604
Name: Song Blade
Age: 30
Description and Race: See pic
Cutie Mark: A pair of rapiers in an X shape.
Background: Born and raised as a noble in Canterlot, Song never really liked the attitudes of the so called 'Higher Class'. Often times she had been caught coming home late with cuts and bruises like she had been in a fight. Her parents paid for fencing lessons in hopes that she would calm down with the training. This had not worked and she left home to join the Guard as soon as she was an adult. She stunned everypony during her training with her speed and skill with rapiers. At one point, she could create blades of wind when she slashed her rapier, cutting down any enemys in her way. Due to an injury she had sufffered at the claws of some griffon bandits, she can no longer do that and would have been killed, had it not been for the passing of Captain Storm Blade. Swinging his Claymore like it was made of paper, he quickly cut down the bandits. He helped Song to a hospital and the two quickly took a liking to eachother. Within a year, they were married and all seemed like it would be a happy ending. However, due to an incident with one of Storm Blades subordinates stealing his bracers, he was forced to retire to Trotswood. Song was given the opportunity to take Storm's place as captain, but refused and retired from the guard to live with her husband. They now live together in house 113 (Since I don't think anyone lives there yet) trying to live a peaceful life. One problem, Trotswood is anything but peaceful.

I approve of him, but am a bit curious as to how long it takes for his muscles to become a problem when not having his bracers on.

Also, you said she can no longer use her air-slashes from an attack. Is that permanent?
>> No. 445607
It depends on the scenario. If he's in a combat situation, or constantly having to use them, it becomes to painful to continue with 2 minutes.

It's permanent for her primary hoof, she is currently training to be able to use her other hoof for that attack, but it will take time.

Gender: Female
Race: Pegasus
History: Starlight was raised in secret, hidden from society all together by a family that was ashamed to have a child. The child was never even supposed to happen, but nature naturally runs its course.
Growing up Starlight tended to injured plants and animals, growing quite fond of them, but grew to be terrified of interacting with other ponies due to harsh treatment. Because of this, she rarely talks to other ponies, and when she does she is as quiet as a mouse. No pony has ever heard her real voice.
Late one night she escaped from her dungeon and ran far away into the forest, quickly learning to live off of the land. However this fair night brings her to a small little town on the edge of said forest. A town named Trotswood.

Age: 20
Race: earth pony/ hedgehog
Combat skill: Poor
Orientation: Bi
History: Pom had always been different from every pony else in the fact she was born with ears of a hedgehog. Throughout school she was constantly bullied for being different, however due to a strong unquenchable will she never stood down.
During school she started liking growing different kinds of fruits and making different kinds of juices which was quite silly due to her name. She grew to love doing it more and more, until one day, a pomegranate cutie mark showed up on her rear end.
Now out of school, she searches for a place to stay and start mixing drinks of all sorts and hopefully make some new friends in the process.

Name: Dr. Sanger
Age: 68
Description and Race: An earth pony whose been through a lot of stress, his age is clearly shown on him. He has a faded blue coat and is almost completely bald at this point.
Backstory: He was born an accident, being abandoned by his father after his mother told him she was pregnant. After he was born, his mother still showed him the true compassion for the colt throughout his life. He grew up being very poor, seeing how his mother never had any education past basic high school. It took a long time for her to obtain a job that would give her the income to not only break their support by the government, but also giver her son the things he really needed.
After Sanger finished high school, he knew he wouldn't be able to obtain the money to work towards his dream of becoming a successful doctor, so he decided to join the military in hopes that they would help him pay for school. He served as a medic, staying away from fights fortunately though out his career. Saving as much money as he could, along with two scholarships he obtained both by his military experience and his academic achievements in high school, he managed to get himself into a decent medical school.
After finishing college, he went back to serve the military one last term before finally turning his eyes towards becoming a doctor. His dream didn't fall through like he hoped though, as even though he was a doctor, he could never build his career status high enough as he was trying to.
This didn't let him down, as soon he would meet a mare named Elizabeth, who in the course of three years, became his loving wife. On the same year he was married, he was offered a job by the government to help research cells with other scientists in order to find a cure for cancer. He accepted the job, but wasn't aware that the cells they were researching were unethically taken from a zebra, name Helen Lon, who genetically had cancer cells that, when mixed with fresh chicken blood, would continue to grow even when removed from the body. These cells were actually taken from her right before she died 20 years ago, and have now grown to weigh twice as much as she did.
He wasn't sure on how to act about this, but he certainly wasn't going to turn away from an amazing opportunity. He worked with them and they seemed close to finding a cure, but a new problem rose at the very peak of their studies. The very cells they took from the zebra would start to "contaminate" other cell lines they were using, forcing them to declare all their research invalid. He became very depressed to find this out, but would soon turn around after getting assigned to help in the biggest project fro finding a cure on cancer. With a large budget donated to them, and the full support of the princesses, an entire facility was built that would be able to keep not only a large amount of equipment and cell lines, but also have scientists who could keep close watch on them as well to ensure full legitimacy over their research.
After a month of being assigned this, he was stricken with grief to find out his wife was ill with cancer, the very thing he was trying to cure. With a determined hear, he tried everything in his power to find a cure. Months of research went by and they finally seemed close to finding a cure. He was relieved to find this, and rushed to Elizabeth to inform her of the good news and promised that everything would be okay. It was raining the next day when he went back to the facility. No one appeared to be working. When he asked what was happening they spoke of rumors about an error being made in their research. It was later to be found that Helen's cells had once again contaminated the other cell lines, mysteriously. This completely ruined all their research and threw all the money put into it down the drain. And even worse, it left Elizabeth without a cure.
Three years after her death, at the age of 68, he left, leaving behind all his belongings and leaving no sign on where he might have went.

He came into Trotswood to find a place where he could not be found by his colleagues or any higher official. He wanted to escape that life after everything that's happened.

Okay, he was born with just his mother, who was an addict to rubies and would make him hunt for them in the badlands where they lived, eventually his mother got so out of control that he had to kill her in self defense, he has recurring nightmares about it and has a very delicate psyche, if he sees someone he loves getting physically hurt he will go krieg on them, but otherwise he is the embodiement of fluttershy in dragon form

Despite this she tried to be as social as possible, and even got her cutie mark at a very young age. A small sun with a happy face on it, representing that she could cheer anyone up. She never let her blindness be a downfall, but instead used it as a way to spread her cheer to others around her.
Her goal is to travel across Equestria and find the perfect town to settle down with and spread her love and cheer across.

File 140590842272.png - (30.20KB , 340x400 , -Ranger L_- Pic no hat 1.png )
Name: Ranger
Race: Pegasus
Age: 18

Ranger was born in Canterlot, but lost his parents at age 5 in a Apartment Fire. He lived in an orphanage for 13 Years, but made very few friends over that time. He had dreams of joining the Royal Guard, but was only in training for a few months before being discharged after starting a fight with his Drill Sergeant and almost beating him to death. Now Ranger lives as a homeless pony, and almost completely out of bits, he journeys to Trotswood, hoping to get some sort of Job and rebuild his already devastating life.

Good points:
He's kind, usually gentle, and always respects the Mares, though can be easily seduced by them. He doesn't mind talking, but prefers to be quiet most of the time.

Bad Points:
He's not very conversational, mostly is shy, He's not very smart in problems in decisions, and if enraged, is not afraid to get
in somepony's face.

>Especially AOS
Lets not badmouth other canons, please. RP as a whole has become colder, but there is no need to call out specific canons. That'll just lead to more problems.

As to your sheet? I do have a few questions. How did he almost beat a drill sergeant to death? Or was he almost beat to death? I mean, if he was 18, spent most of his time in an orphanage, and was only in the military for a few months, shouldn't he have gotten stomped like a bronze player in Challenger? Did he have training that wasn't mentioned? It seems like a detail that would be pretty important, instead of kind of glazing over it, and saying he has the skills to beat up a drill sergeant, without being pulled off of him, or having his muzzle kicked sideways for his trouble.
>> No. 455817
yeah... I ended up in a bunch of tabletop rpg groups, buuuut I can't play a pastel colored horse there.
>> No. 455818
Yeah, it's definitely not something I condone, calling out canons that is.
We all have our differences, but Trotswood isn't a place for this.

Okay, I'll stop.

I do agree there, I don't like to take shots.

And as to your questions, Yes, He didn't do very well, and he just wanted out after awhile, seeing that it wasn't going to be something he would do in his lifetime. And Ranger threw the first punch after the Drill Sergeant cussed at him so many times that he had enough of it. And yes, Ranger ended up with a black eye and a broken nose.

Well... lemme put it this way, what's going on right now? How would a typical story event play out?
>> No. 455886
Right now? Nothing. All that's going on is me playing a very short amount of past-development on two of my characters, but both are pretty minor. Almost all of our members have stopped posting, on of our Mods has been missing for near a year, the other is hardly ever online, because he's busy, and we've not had an actual new player in quite some time.

Usually, just me and Scorch have been messing around in the thread recently, and Wind managed to come by a few times, but our activity is at an all time low.

As for how a story would typically play out, it matters on who/how it's started/played out. If you were to decide to bring an arc in, you can either let it subtly play out, or tell everyone that you have a plan, and carefully string everyone along the events.

The whole idea of the thread is free will with their development, letting things play out the way they wish (Within the guidelines, of course). Even though a lot of us prefer to post short replies, I'm sure you know that everyone in our canon is yeas-experienced, and can play along with just about everything.

Well, in all honesty, he does seem a bit too centered on combat, and the application looks more like a combat sheet for DnD than a standard application post for an RP. It's nice to know a few more things about him, rather than what he's resistant to, and all that. Maybe focus more on his character than what he carries and can do?

It'll make your character more of a character instead of an equipment mule with a revision, that's for sure.

I'm looking for adventure with those who might want to have fun with an alicorn. His power is no greater than Celestia or Luna and his special talent is control over light. Lumis and his twin brother came from the ancient past, long before Equestria was even founded and as a result of the unstable time portal he was separated from his twin brother and to this day still searches for him. There is more to these twins than meets the eye but I'm just looking for those who want to have fun. I'm open to anyone using any race in MLP as long as the power they have makes sense. I'm willing to work with those that work with me. Lumis loves Luna but he doesn't even know if the princess of the night knows he exists.
>> No. 456029
okay... what? are you advertising a rp?
>> No. 456030
'Tis a canon, broski. Nice to see some more people here on the OOC, but, Gonna have to ask for a bit more, if you don't mind?

Some details on himself, his past, his power limits/drawbacks ( Something that might be a bit touchy with an Alicorn OC, but, we gotta keep things in check, y'know? )

Luckily, you came along when more than one person was online!
>> No. 456032
His past is not very complex. He and his twin brother were princes, born to an alicorn king which does make them princes but in the present the title means little if anything. Their father sent them to the future in hopes they could have a peaceful life as they were on the verge of a terrible war. Lumis ended up in Equestria not long before Luna became Nightmare Moon. The tribes in his time were not united and he didn't know what to expect so he got a hold of a cloak and hid the fact he was an alicorn by hiding his wings. Everyone thought he was just a very large unicorn due to his muscle. During the next thousand years he continued to search for his brother, never staying in one place for too long as he never aged. During this time he learned of how much pony kind had changed as well as getting familiar with how much progress had been made. He can control light and anything associated with it. He can create illusions along with auroras and turn himself invisible. The invisibility doesn't work in very dark places and he appears like a ghost but easily seen. He has a variety of spells like levitation, healing, among other standard magics one might find on an adventurer who uses magic. His light magic can be used in a variety of ways. Any magic he uses would be above average in strength because of his alicorn magic but it wouldn't be super powerful, just above normal. His light magic is reduced in darkness and shadow magic or dark magic will cancel out with his, resulting in a stalemate. I was told by someone from here I could get some input on my idea before posting an ad.
>> No. 456033
Alright, your sheet is in order, somewhat, and that's fine, though it'd be nice to know more about him as a character. His past has been established, but what else is there to tell of this particular Alicorn?
I'm fine with Alicorn OCs, but we always have to do a list of checks on stuff to make sure it's not blatantly overpowered. BUT! I'm glad you have an actual weakness to his power, which gives us a small headstart to getting things more sorted out.

In terms of posting an "Ad" This, again, is a canon, not a chat site forum...Thing. I lost my words, so I forgot how to explain it.
Instead, this is a post-by-post forum and all that good stuff.
Being a canon, you don't just post ads and such, you have direct character development with your surroundings and the characters involved in it over the course of your time here. And, whether you want to use that in the future or not is entirely your choice, but, for now, ads really aren't a thing here. It's a drop-in, get going kind of thing, limited only by who's online at the time.

I was about to ask for you to also post something about what brings him to the town, but I kinda forgot that you've already posted his entire reason for traveling about as it is.

You'll have to forgive me. It's my first time using a chan of any sort and I know I'm making mistakes. The alicorn can be a little slow to warm up to others but he's not afraid to stand up for those who can't protect themselves or he will help anyone who needs it. His life of travel has resulted in him taking things as they come but still keeping in mind the task at hand. He is friendly and still hasn't revealed his secret yet to Equestria at large. Only Celestia and Luna would know what he is from when he first arrived but they haven't seen him in quite a long time due to his travels. There is a secret that involves the brothers and while I hope it wouldn't cause trouble it might.
>> No. 456035
It's no problem at all, man, I'm just trying to help you get this all arranged.
And, I'm also really sorry if I'm starting to sound redundant, because that's something I always try to avoid.

But, do you mind properly compiling everything into a sheet for easier review so that once the other officers come along, they don't have to comb over half a page's post to get everything pieced together?

Really sorry if this all is becoming taxing and such, but we gotta do what we gotta do.
So, things like, eh.

That's usually the general layout of a normal application sheet for a site light this. Normally, there'd be an "Age" slot too, but, due to the time travel quirk, we can just kinda leave that aside for now.

And, please add anything else that's good to know of the character. And, since you said he has specifics regarding his abilities, it'd be nice to have a little run down on things like that too, so that we can better help you get it all lined up to more properly get ready for the canon and such.

We're not picky about post size, but the application sheets themselves are rather important, due to them being necessary to properly size up the character and such.
>> No. 456036
I'll tell you what I had in mind for the twins as it does need to be addressed. The twins were originally a single alicorn but before they were born the powers that be over the universe thought that a pony with their combined magic, light and shadow, would result in a power that might corrupt him. So the alicorn was split into two and hence Lumis and Shadow were born. The idea is that they can merge together into that alicorn but as a result of the polar opposite magic being put together it does result in something more powerful than either of them alone.
>> No. 456037
I'm glad you have plenty of details to share about your character, it gives everyone more to experience from the character once everything gets going.

But, again, It'd be a lot easier for the rest of the officers to properly sum up your character if we had it all in one post, instead of five.

Name: Lumis
Race: Alicorn
Backstory: Lumis and his twin brother Shadow came from the ancient past, long before Equestria was even founded and as a result of the unstable time portal he was separated from his twin brother and to this day still searches for him. He and his twin brother were princes, born to an alicorn king which does make them princes but in the present the title means little if anything.

Any magic he uses would be above average in strength because of his alicorn magic but it wouldn't be super powerful, just above normal. His light magic is reduced in darkness and shadow magic or dark magic will cancel out with his, resulting in a stalemate.
Personality: Lumis is easy going and takes things as they come due to his travels but he always keeps in mind the main task at hand. He is friendly but can be a little slow to warm up due to his secret of being an alicorn as this secret has not been revealed to Equestria itself at large. Only Celestia and Luna know it but they haven't seen him in ages due to his search for his lost brother. Lumis not afraid to stand up for those who can't protect themselves and he will help anyone who needs it.
Side note: His brother Shadow is different in personality but power wise is the same as Lumis. The fusion of the brothers needs to be discussed as to how to handle it.

It's not like he can remove light and he can only do things with it in the general area. It would be easier for me to describe it if questions about it were ask. I know that probably is not the easiest way to do this but it's the only one I can think of without making things complicated.
>> No. 456051
Okay.. SO what is something he could do with the light?
>> No. 456052
He can create non solid illusions with it since an illusion is often times made with light. Can turn himself invisible as long as there is enough light in the area otherwise he will be visible. He can create something like an Aurora Borealis but the largest that can go is over a city or town. He can also concentrate light into a destructive beam of magic that would be powerful enough to blow apart large boulders. While magic in general could do this he uses light for his. He can also learn new magic but what he has to start with is levitation, teleportation but it only works within an area of two miles but he can teleport others with him within that range, can ignite fire, healing magic, can light up dark areas using his horn like a flash light. Anything outside of these he would have to learn.

Backstory: Harmony Kanto, is a Unicorn mare that was born in Canterlot. Having a less than influential background, melody tried to use her talents of singing and music to make a bit of money.

Uh...I actually need to ask our OP about that...We only have two officers left that actually do anything regarding the canon anymore, along with the OP. We DID have a good amount of officers, but they've either disappeared, left, or are much too busy with other things.

We used to require three approvals, but, uh...I'm not sure what to do now. Gimme a minute.

I'll work on some of it as things go along. If I get the go ahead I'll keep whatever magic he uses in line with whatever is going on around him. If I get a good reason to use it then I'll address it at that time. Also I will at some point also introduce his twin brother. He is the same power level his brother is at, only difference is he uses shadow magic. This stuff will be addressed when needed. Also the fusing aspect needs to be addressed but that can be done whenever any moderator feels like it. It's not important at this time. Also if I get approved for starting how do I go about that and where do I go to start.

Okay, so...Before I do any kind of actual critiquing, or any type of actual judgement on this character, I have to actually say something.

This is like your 5th character. The last one you came up with, you posted once, and then didn't show up again until now.
What's the point in having ALL the applied characters, and not using a single one of them?

It's not so much telling you not to make more characters.
It's more of trying to tell you to actually make a decision as to whether or not you want to USE the character.
We all have plenty of characters scrunched up in the back of our head, but if we just all slung them straight into the canon without thinking of whether or not we'd actually use them, this place'd be a mess.

So, I have to ask: Do you actually want to use this character for more than a day? 'Cause this is getting pointless.

Welp, here goes nothing. First application with this character, second application overall.

Well, Fidget is a changeling. Not a evil love-sucking mind-controlling one, mind you. She's actually quite a pleasant person/pony/changeling/icky bug monster. She is not part of the hivemind, and broke free after Chrysalis was defeated in the invasion.

However, other ponies aren't as...pleasant... to her at times, mostly due to fear and/or resentment. She tends to get chased out of towns a lot, and has to travel a lot as a result. To avoid this happening, she assumes the form of a batpony (seen in the picture) to conceal her identity.

As for personality, she tends to be quite friendly. She likes hugs. A lot. However, her social skills aren't fantastic, to be honest. The hivemind doesn't have much social interaction, as you may expect. Speaking of which, she sometimes gets a bit depressed when talking about the hivemind. It was quite horrible for her, and she sometimes holds herself accountable for what she did while in the hivemind.

As for combat and skills, the skills are quite obvious, as a changeling. She is good at comforting those in need, however. For combat, she has the skills of what would be expected from an average changeling, plus a bit more experience due to defending herself from...less than understanding... ponies.

If there is anything that I have missed, feel free to let me know.

AoS kinda died (well to an extent) did BnD....NLR....crikey even Destination Equestria...
lost internet for a while and now i have it again...
though it's hard to remember which version of mystic was here...
been on but had to use a phone for a while.
seems like when i stopped my cafe threads everything started dying.
>> No. 456574
Well, I know that AoS barely had any activity when I first joined, and when I finally found a good point to post, it died off completely. I find no real reason to post there any more, honestly.

NLR died a long, long time ago. The constant in-fighting and weird choices of the crew probably saw to that.

I know nothing of BnD, so, I can't really say anything about that

But, uh...D:E Died during my canon's short absence from Pchan. I still have no idea what happened, but I've been told on more than one occasion that, for some reason, everyone started hating each-other, and the only open canon on /rp/ just kinda imploded, or something.

I don'r really remember much about your bar, because that's around the time I started doing less and less open threads, due to being constantly busy, and not finding any places to join in. Vinyl's character had suddenly ascended to demi-god-hood, or something, and all the characters I knew were either dead, emotionally scarred, or had just disappeared, so...I've got no clue.

As for your point in Trotswood, I don't know which version was here either. The canon's going through a really, really rough spot right now, where most of our members have either straight up abandoned us, or left, not to mention our officers slowly disappearing.

Glad to hear you got internet back though!

If you want to come back to the canon, we'd be glad to have you, but, you'd definitely have to be patient, because...Yeah, we're moving really slow now

Mortimer wouldn't be happy about you spreading rumors about him, that's for sure.

Last time I was on MLPchan, it was full of people literally DRIPPING with the most annoying type of drama, and constantly picking fights amongst each other

MLPchan was still pretty new last time we were on it...At least I think it was, because the only experienced posters were actually Pchan veterans, and transfers from this site. Found that kinda funny, but they've definitely gotten some experience under their belt by now, which is good. Experience helps everything, after all.

And, you're definitely free to come back whenever you want. Though, I'm honestly not sure that you need another sheet or not...Then again, there are really only 2 officers, and the OP himself left on the list of approval people, so, it might be much easier and much more productive to just have you jump right in whenever you feel free to.

well mystic doesn't have much changed since last time...just that's she's from trottinghem...but i think that was still the case.

there's Mystic's daughter Olivia Sweetsong she's from hooflyn (i.e mystic raised her there.) born in 1918 she has the singing voice on an angel and the aim of a well trained marksmen being drafted in ww2...though how to get her to trotswood age would either make her like...really old or i could say she inherited a bit of mystic's powers but also the captain America approach made sense in BnD

then there's Cherri Pai, born in Space colony neo kyoto in the year 2991 comes back using a time travel method pretty much explained in star trek 4 (going warp ten and using the gravity well of a star.)
talent is mechanics and robotics.
>she has a mobile suit and a space frigate (currently drawing.) which is why i am hesitant

then there's Ragna Rok
she's a viking from Iceland thrown form the year 1014 during a battle with a powerful wizard (original story mentioned it was by discord...but after season four i may have to rework it.)
she's very jumpy at first modern tech
her father was a unicorn the last thing he made was her sword which he enchanted to improve it's potency against pure evil.

Name: Cherri Pai though official documents call her Fuyuko Bolt
Age: 23
Race: Earth pony
back story: born in a time when the ponies of earth have migrated to space and have been that way for about 558 years the countries of the pony earth formed groups of colonies neo japan being the colony group Cherri is from. cherri grew up in neo kyoto with a raw talent with machines she toiled away on old robots putting them together again. fueled by a thrust for more she joined the Space corps eventually getting ranked enough to take out a frigate out under her command though trying a time warp was risky she wanted to know if it could be done for science's sake she went fast enough working around a star to launch herself 1000 years in the past. dangerous as it was she went for it. you could chalk it up to her adventurous lineage the trip though space time was rough her dilithum depleted making faster then light travel impossible for her fortunately she was near earth at the time. in her free time she plays video games munches on pokey and watches a lot of anime.
talent: engineering/Robotics
languages: Japanese as a first language Equestrian as a second
Equipment: the Yamamoto class frigate and mobile suit launch ship the HMS Ryujo battlements include photon torpedoes and energy beam cannons. weaponry only used for defensive purposes
measures 850 feet from bow to stern though escalating to 875 feet when mobile suit catapult is unfolded.

a mobile suit of cherry's design that she affectionately calls Sakura Gundam
measuring about 15 meters high is well rounded for melee and ranged attacks weapons include a beam sabre, two rocket launchers one in each shoulder, eight laser beam funnels (only works in space combat due to gravity and drag...see Quebly mobile suit models for reference.) and a particle beam cannon.

other tools:
Whristo-com - a device that Cherri uses for maps information and other various things such as scanning and diagnostic work. worn on the wrist, (the device is pretty much a high tech Pip boy.) though instead of having a screen it displays information via a holographic hard light projection. pretty much a high tech Swiss army knife.

Oh, yes! But of course! Where are my manners? I guess I'll just write about the character in paragraph format, but yus.

Crowley is a stray cat wandering the streets of Trotswood. The original owner of the cat set the cat free, claiming it was too much of a financial burden to keep the cat around. But, in all honesty, he thought the cat was bringing him bad luck. He was also dead set on the fact that the cat could understand every word he was speaking, thus leading him to the suspicion that the cat had intent to bring him annoyance and dismay. The owner died a couple months after the cat was released of natural causes not related to either his friends or the cat. Every owner since then has reported having "bad luck" or having "ominous dreams" on the month of the Winter Wrap Up. The cat remains a stray to this day. As for the cat's psychical traits, it is a black-coated American Bobtail. It has thin wiry whiskers and unkempt claws used for hunting small animals such as birds. It has bright green eyes and can see in the darkest of places.
The picture is of what Crowley might look like.

There, how's that for an application? Should I have put it in bullet points summarizing the important information? I'd like to see if I can even RP as a cat in this one. Cats are cool. Never doubt cats.

The Ancient Edda speak of a young mare about the age of eighteen, the young mare being the youngest daughter of Harold the Sharktooth of Iceland. Her Name was Ragna Rok. in the great Equestrian revolutionary war the tribes were settling their differences and becoming a seven nation army to bring the tyranny of the Serpent of chaos and disharmony down and to seal him into a eternal prison death was to light of a punishment for him they had gathered collectively.
twenty score of longships came to the aid of the equestrians filled with warriors among them a small
daughter of a blacksmith being picked on for her size was one thing but the head strong Pegasus with an enchanted sword her father had crafted for her to vanquish evil enchanting it with a noble and honorable spirit the sword of a mithiril alloy imbued with runes of light made it resistant to the impurities of the tainted lands at the time. she never showed any mercy in the field of battle making stallions twice her size and bigger run in fear of her. After a while after sending many to Valhalla that day she approached the serpent king. before the final blow was struck and the alicorn sisters could set him into stone he threw open a spell trapping her in a seal in the castle's walls for a thousand years the vorpoal blade that she carried set in a stone pedestal sealed until her return by her father whom received news of her daughter's supposed demise. the tough and battle worn Harold cried softly as he looked up at her, a mere carving in a wall sleeping peacefully and no way to get her out.her older bother and sisters visited her on her birthday every year till they had passed on. centuries past on the castle fell to ruin leaving only the enchanted stone room intact the sword reistant to corrosion stayed there even when many a traveling warrior quested to draw the vorpal blade they were not able . The Eddas speak of her as a witty and intelligent mare who knows her way around an anvil as good as she knew how to fight. a bit stubborn but she is humble and welcoming to everypony after getting to know their intentions. the Edda speak of her training and learning everyday from the time she was able to pick up either a hammer or a wooden sword. studious in the evening she studied teachings in many languages some she had to get translated but she at least knew her native tongue and equestrian. it is said upon her return there shall be peace at last.
- an excerpt from the Norseladnic Edda historical record, translated by Dr. Mystic Bolt and Rose Deco, 1928

Name: Ragna Rok
age: 18
Race: Pegasus
weapons: Longbow skills (but bow did not survive)
Vorpal sword, Viking longsword with the added abilities of a magical bolt that can be shot at the foe
unless ragna is below 75% HP.
Personality: as the Edda said she's smart at what she does, but her being fierce and unforgiving was a bit of a stretch she is kindhearted and won't attack unless provoked
Religion: Ancient Norse pagan (Asatru)

Name: Seras Wisp
Age: 21
Race: Thestral/ Bat Pony

Back Story: A child of two high class ponies, she would usually run off to see the various sights in Equestria when she could. One day she went into the Everfree Forest. She went deep into the woods and almost got killed by a cerberus. She managed to escape and made it back home badly injured. She was sheltered by her parents for the rest of her childhood. When she grew old enough to move out, she joined the night guard, serving Luna. Her talents were recognized and she was in charge of exploring the world outside Equestria and defending it from any outside creatures during the night.

It was after the cerberus attack when she gained a want to explore more and find adventure, despite barely surviving the attack with the cerberus. After she gained that want she got her cutie mark.

Cutie Mark: A magnifying glass with feathery wings on it.
Combat: Prefers melee over anything else- as that's the most she can do when required to fight at all. She, overall, doesn't prefer to start a fight unless it's necessary, really.

I've tried signing up in the past, but I think I dropped out. But anyway, I'll just try with a different character if you don't mind.

Race-Earth pony
Name-Tobius Roper (or Toby for short)

Description/Personality-Toby is a tall, lanky stallion from the good ol' south. He spent a good deal of his life helping out on the farm and bringing the cattle round. He's a tough worker who don't get out much, and whom if you asked for directions, he'd probably only be able to point you to the nearby saloon. No one from his home town would describe him as stupid, but the going ons of the bigger world outside his own don't often concern him. He's happy just hearing a tale or two of a good bar fight from last sunday night.

Though a little rough around the edges, Toby can be a real sweetheart. That is, once you can get past the 'don't take cow cud from no one' attitude and the rough, if almost demanding at times, way he likes to get things done. Procrastination just ain't in his nature that's for sure.

He's a sucker for a good folk in some hard times, and he ain't never been good at sayin' no to a gal in need.

He found the town through one of his rare spontaneus urges to travel...well, ok that's not exactly true. Rather, he let a friend drag him around the local country side a few times in his life, and he didn't find the place half bad. So now from time to time, when he just gets sick and tired of the same old faces, he takes a little trip up on to Trotswood. He might stay for a day, he might stay for a month! Who knows!

Name: Crystal Clear
Crystal is a filly earth pony, light grey and small in stature. Her black mane and tail are cut short, and look like they were cut with a machete. Her eyes are hidden behind mirrored goggles that almost cover her whole face; they obviously weren't meant for her to wear.
Crystal is often scatterbrained, and has memory trouble that constantly frustrates her; this, coupled with her short temper, lead to her being somewhat bad at social interaction. She forgets names, gets mad at herself, and if someone laughs, it just gets worse. Memory problems and temper aside, when Crystal makes friends she is intensely loyal.

Name: Iron Hoof (Iron for short)
Sex: Female
Age (Human Equivalent): 26
Race: Unicorn
Occupation: Adventurer

My name is Iron Hoof, daughter of a dead mare. In my travels, I find myself grow wary upon spotting a small town. As I see no initial danger, I make the town my next destination.

Okay, I'm done with the in character stuff.
My character is a lone traveler, she has been for most of her life. She lived on the road with her mother, whom was a traveling merchant. In her young years, her caravan was attacked by diamond dogs, and to her knowledge she was the only survivor. From her experience on the road and what she could scavenge from the pillaged caravan, she made her way to the next town. After she explained what had happened, and a small search party not finding any other survivors, she was put into the town's orphanage. She was shortly adopted by an elderly couple, the town blacksmith and his wife.

It was only a few years until the blacksmith's wife passed on. Shortly after her death, Iron Hoof's new home was robed, on of the stolen items being a hoof crafted sword breaker that had been in that family for three generations. With the town guard not being able to do anything and no leads to go on, the sword breaker was lost and Iron Hoof realized that if you want something done, you have to do it yourself.

After Iron had aged to adult hood, her now closer than ever father was near death. She had no skill as a smith so when he did pass, she would have no use for the blacksmith shop. And without the blacksmith, she would have no reason to stay in town. So instead of having her grieve beside his bed, her father had her help him craft one more thing; a new steel sword breaker. At first Iron didn't know what to think, but after he passed, she knew exactly what to do. With the money she revived from her father's death, she gathered supply and set off on her everlasting quest to do as much good as she can. And although a grim past, she tends to keep her mind in the present. Always focusing on the task at hand. But this does not dispel her life goal of ridding the world of the evil that took her mother.

Onto character traits!
Although a bit stubborn with her ideas, she is always open to suggestions, so long as they are not completely idiotic.
She doesn't understand cowardliness but knows the difference between it and cautiousness
She is strait forward and blunt with her statements but in a lot of cases is just stating observations.
She packs lightly as she with scavenge the wild for food, water, and other resources.
Although a unicorn, the only spell she knows outside of telekinesis is a weak healing spell and knows very little about magic.
What she lacks in magical knowledge she makes up in combat skill, armed with a sword breaker and short sword, she trained with the best of the town guard before leaving.
Even with hate and blood lust she fights with honor, so long as her opponent does as well.

I should be able to answer any questions about my character.
although my schedule makes my time on ponychan spotty at best, once I find something to dedicate to, I should be on a lot more.

There was a point in time where Trotswood was considered to be near the edge of the Everfree, actually. I'm not sure if that's still true or not, as with these later editions of Trotswood, the forest is usually played out as a normal deep and thick forest that houses a number of things, based on who's currently in control of the interaction.
>> No. 457315
Oh, well the reason I wanted to know is because the location will heavily effect the comings and goings of my character.
>> No. 457316
I know that a common fact is that Trotswood is located within a specific timeframe of Ponyville itself. Usually around a 3-4 hour walk, or something? Been a while since someone pulled the Ponyville travel card, so, I can't quite remember.
>> No. 457317

The town has 3 different ways in/out any way, so which way you come in isn't hard to think up. The East, West, and North entrances to town are all connected to various paths that lead to wherever based on where you'd like to go, or come from.
>> No. 457319
Well yes, I know that. But relative to were the town is will depict where I'll come, go, watch, hang out, and much more.
>> No. 457320
Lemme find the old Equestria map, and I'll get this sorted out the best I can :l

Well, our old OP posts on the RP threads themselves always say that the town is on the edge of the Western forests, so, it'd be between the Everfree and White Tail Woods.

Yes, it's the best assumption I can make. It's been, like, two or three years since the location was discussed, and a lot has happened in this canon since then, because of how long it's been running.

History: Velvet was a simple young beatnik in the rise of the summer of love. The young hippie from the eastern borders of Trottinghem providence in a town called Liverpony (play on Liverpool) talented in art and music was caught up in a bad romance of the fatal kind, she was bitten by the local vampire lord of Liverpony new years eve at midnight 1967 her soul tied in with the Vampirism in a way it made the right conditions to make her a Shadow dancer being able to manipulate shadows to her whim using them as cover and protection. other then this she is the run of the mill vampire. She carries around a parasol that is enchanted to protect her from the sun, which drains her energy and causes agony that is like an intense sunburn when hit by it. Preferring to keep a modern take to her consumption she tends to get blood from a blood bank, rather then somepony's neck with out full consent of course.

Well, This is the story all about how My life got flipped turned upside down, so if you wana take a minuit, and make sure i'm understood, i'll tell ya how i became princess of a town called Trotswood.
In West Fillydelphia born and raised, In the studio is where i spent most of my days. Chillin' out maxin' relaxin' all cool, And all droppin beats outside of the school.
I got in one little fight With a couple of colts who were up to no good,
they Started making trouble in my neighborhood.
My mom said ' That's it You're movin' with your auntie out to Trotswood.
I begged and pleaded with her day after day
But she packed my suit case and sent me on my way
She gave me a kiss and then she gave me my ticket.
I put my Walkman on and said, 'I might as well kick it'.
First class, yo this is bad
Drinking orange juice out of a champagne glass.
Is this what the people of Trotswood living like?
Hmmmmm this might be alright.
Well, the Train arrived and when I came out
There was a dude who looked like a cop standing there with my name out
I ain't trying to get arrested yet
I just got here
I sprang with the quickness like lightning, disappeared.
I Strolled up to the house around 7 or 8, and i looked at my kingdom
i knew life was gonna be good
as i Sat on my throne as the princess of Trotswood.

(i think that covers everything but Combat, she's not very good, but can handle the average thug. but will most likely flee against anything more heavily armed.)

Heh thanks, there were a few things i was curious about, but i figured that if all else fails i can use a generic vinyl base. Normally i play her as a Radio host, would that be something feasible in trotswood?
>> No. 457460
Sure, that'd be fine. There are radios around Trotswood, and all that kind of stuff.

I think I still have those actually. Good times. (PSST I'm immvading your threads)

Hello, before I start, I should note a few things.
1. This character can be very powerful.
2. If this character is approved, any character killed and/or injured by it's actions is not my fault.
3. I'm only human and will make mistakes, I will attempt to act as this character would to the best of my ability.

Now that's out of the way, It's name is Bot 1.03 - B, a robot created using magic and technology to make the perfect servant. Bot 1.03 - B has no emotions and will do what ever it takes to get the job done. It has two simple protocols:
"Stay within functioning condition."

"Complete all commands given."

So there is no less room for interpretation, that means that it will complete any commands given to it to the best of it's ability. If commands contradict, it cannot do both and will only do what ever command was given first.

Now that's out of the way.

>a brief history
Bot 1.03 - B was created to serve it's inventor's son who unlike the rest of his family was an earth pony. After he was angry at his father for pushing magic into his life he gave Bot 1.03 - B one command, "Get lost." Because of it's protocols, it now wanders Equestia completing any task given to it.

>any combat, skills
Bot 1.03 - B has the ability to use arcane magic. It can cast any spell it has knowledge of and energy to use.
Known spells: Telekinesis.
Bot 1.03 - B uses catalysis technology to Store and collect energy, Identify "energy sources", (This includes anything with magic energy: Living things, catalysts, and other magical objects.) and to use magic.
Bot 1.03 - B uses a soft, pliable ball for it's primary motion, it stands one meter tall and is 0.5 meters wide. (Measurements based on average pony height ~1 meter) It has a glass dome at the top and a smooth body. The ball has a 0.25 meter diameter.

>how they found the town
There is only so much space to wander in and Trotswood is in that space.

Sorry if I left anything out, feel free to ask about anything.

Hm. I'm not 100% sure what to think of this...We've never had any actual robots applied to this canon. I mean, sure, there were a few ponies that had little robotic companions, but, none that were actual robots themselves.

Though, the first 3 lines do worry me. It makes it seem like you are coming in with the idea that a character might immediately be killed off, which is odd, considering this canon hasn't had an arc in a long time, due to lack of players coming in and actually contributing to anything about it.

Also: Does this Catalyst have the ability to generally copy any magical spell that isn't too overwhelming for him to handle?

Well, that's someone I haven't seen in a while. What're you doing here, Canis?

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.

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?

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.

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

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.
