#Open #Dark #Violence #Semi-serious #Character #General-Specialized #Grimdark/Horror

It has been one week since the capital city fell into a bloody ruin. Both Princess Celestia and Luna have been slain, and many others seem to be falling close behind. Neither Princess Twilight nor Shining Armor have seen Princess Cadence since the madness began, and if the rumors are anything to go by, she may very well be as dead as the two rulers of Equestria. With the sun unable to rise, the moon unable to set, and Canterlot left with no magic barrier to protect it's denizens, madness and the strange new chaos quickly began to spread to other parts of the world. Towns quickly became over run by unimaginable monsters, unlike anything anyone has ever seen. Creatures of all shapes and sizes now run rampant in the streets, doing as they please-whether it be murdering any poor soul who happens across their path, or finding simple joy in bringing buildings and hospitals to the ground.

Nopony seems to know how or where it all started, or even what exactly it is that is going on. Many theories have naturally begun to spring up amongst the peaceful ponies, some pointing to alien invasion, some to the end times, while others believe it is a dark magic, one much older and more powerful than even the elements of harmony. Not enough time has passed to prove anything, and while some ponies fight to figure out just what it is that has taken over their peaceful world, others fight merely to survive.

You, the unfortunate lost soul in this new wasteland, have suddenly found yourself dropped into a haven turned hell. Monsters of varying shapes, sizes, and intelligence run rampant and lurk every dark alley you turn down. The world around you seems to consist of mere flames, ash, and crumbled remains of a once peaceful and brilliant society. Where you will go, and what you will do in this new wasteland is all up to chance, and the power of your own mind.


This rp will be a completely player driven world. Events, story arcs, politics, and whatever else happens in this canon-if it becomes canon-will be created as the players progress, and will turn in the directions that the players so choose. This rp will be similar to other rps such as the Doughnut Bar, AOS, and D.E, in that it can involve many many players of all different writing styles and power limits. There will be no officers, nor any main dm, and power limits should be set out of respect to other players. In other words, please don't play an overpowered, godly character because more than likely no one will enjoy playing with you.

Much like D.E., if you would like to make your own story arc off of this rp, and continue to play with other players that you have planned with, then you may do so. I only wish that you tag your new thread with the proper tags, stating that it is related to this rp. After that, the thread that you create will be up to you to maintain and create the rules for, and also whom gets to play in that thread with you.

The type of characters you may play in this thread include any species or canon characters related to the show, except for the two princesses already listed as deceased for story purposes, and ocs of your choosing. If you wish to play an established show character, merely state that you are doing so here in the ooc. If another player has decided that they would like to play the character that you have chosen, it will be up to you and the other player to figure out whom plays whom. You may do through discussion, a dice roll, or any other means you so choose, but, please, do NOT argue over roles. If an argument breaks out, you will be asked to leave.

You may also play one of the monsters if you wish, for some have as high, or higher, intelligence than the ponies. Creatures and monsters where described vaguely so that the players may have more option on what they look like and can be, but I would like to state that humans can also be considered a playable option, though they should be grouped in with the monsters and madness that has taken over the world. They do not necessarily have to be evil in nature, but they should not have existed[or have been known of] before these events took place, and should show up alongside the monsters.

In conclusion, let me just state again that this will be a completely open thread-for anyone and everyone to play in as much or as little as they choose. The politics and events will be handled and created through the writing of the players, and if you would like to see a certain event continue to unfold, simply make another separate thread for it. Whether you choose to play a canon character, a simple oc, and human with a dark scheming mind[or even one just thrown into all the madness without knowing where they are or how they got there], will be up to you!


-Crossover characters from other shows, such as an anime or show that already has a set canon. You may play a character that is heavily inspired by some other character, but you cannot, for instance, play Slade from Teen Titans.

-Controlling other peoples characters without their previous consent. It is considered very rude, and just downright annoying, so please try to avoid doing that.

Hello! sorry for late reply. It is an open rp, so no, there are never too many people. Honestly we don't get enough people on rp anymore TO have too many people haha.

Did you have a certain character in mind or anything? Just curious, we are doing a few character introductions of our own, and I could probably make it easier on you to hop in if I know a little about what you want to play.
>> No. 458312
And I'm going to be gone on a camping trip for about two or three days. If your still interested 8-bit, this is an open canon. If you want help finding a spot jumping in, you can just ask questions in here and someone will probably help you. We are doing a little scene right now, but we can help you get in if you would like.

Sorry I couldn't reply sooner. Yeah I would love to join in. Not going into much detail here about my character (for now) but his name is midnight star and his backstory is that he was always interested in the stars his whole life. He adored the fact that the princesses raised the Sun and the Moon. But when they died he was sent into a crazy downward spiral. Now he wanders Equestria alone, looking to the stars for answers.

Ok, I will be around soonish...I have a lot of things to do today, and I need to catch up on posts myself before I can help you find a spot to come in. Unless of course these two dorkbutts want to help with that.

lol naw.

Ok, 8-bit. I have an idea to get you in if you don't mind me dming you for a bit. And I'll probably be doing the next event/thing that will bring you to the main group.

How do you feel about getting 'captured'? I have an idea.

But I also need to know what tolerance you have for grimdark themes, as this canon has a lot of them. Is blood/violence/harsh sexual themesI.E. rape ok with you? The last one I am by no means going to force on your character, but it may or may not come up as a subject in this canon at some point, so I just wanted to give you a heads up before you hop in and then end up not liking it.

Also, would you like to be added to the skype group? There is currently only 3 of us in there, and sometimes we do skype chats. You don't have to join in, it's usually just us dicking around, but you are invited.

If you want to join the skype chat, my skype is ella.blarg, name should show up as drowy.

In this canon, almost anything is possible!

We only ask that you do skim the main opening post to get the basics of what has already happened. I will be making a new ooc too pretty soon to get newbies caught up on the important stuff that has been happening in the main thread.

Gearwheel and 8-bit, if you don't mind waiting about....well later today, I will have a new ooc up with some new info-important stuff that's already happened-that you might find useful before you post. 8-bit, it probably won't matter too much with your character right away, so if you want I can get you started soonish...I'm still doing chore things bleh, but I should have them done soon.

I did it. This world is in chaos. I'm gonna be a part of it.
So, his name is Gears Hackwrench. A unicorn with a jetpack and AI in it named ALYS. Both Gears and ALYS are half-mad. Gears is weak but really smart, so if he'll be successful, you'll have a real mastermind in this canon.

A little backstory:
Born and raised in Yellowmount, which is near to Stalliongrad city, he's a real badass by nature. But being a scientist made him not a regular one. He looks at the world as if it was a subject of his researches.He can kill just for an interest. So he escaped his country and flew to Equestria, ready for his new researching. And who knows what this would be...

Ok, Geary, if you didn't catch my earlier messages, they are here:
I've been kinda busy, and I procrastinate a lot, so sorry about that. I will help you both get in soon though, there's just a few more things I have to make happen before I do.
>> No. 458369
On this topic, you could also all start playing as part of another group. You don't have to be with the group that contains my characters, Drow's, and Grindel's. You can go off and make your own group with new players, and honestly it'll be faster to get in if you do. At the moment, it's not a great character intro time unfortunately, we just had a fairly major event and it'll take a little while to get done with.
>> No. 458370

KK then. I know how it's hard, kinda just launched my own RP. Sorry for that.

Your fine. Um, I had a plan for 8-bits character to get captured by another group, separate from the current one and I was going to dm it a bit. Would you like to be a part of that?

Alright, your probably wondering what the hell is taking so long lol. Again, I apologise. I got offered a part time tempory job about two days ago, and needless to say I've been a little excited. So...if you can be patient with me I need to figure out my work schedule and get a couple things done before I can get back on this and get things going.

I'm a slow sporadic person by nature, with or without work XD. So... heh. I will be back. Hopefully soon.
>> No. 458381

Patience is one f those things Ponychan learned me to, due to mega-slowposting in any RP except DB.

Lol. I used to be faster, it really did..just everyone has moved on or are doing other things XD
>> No. 458383

And only me, being on holidays, and 3,5 more forgotten souls are online nowadays. What a disaster. And I saw the last sigh of RP named Orion, when even mods are leaving this canon. Too bad that no one joins RP now, as I noticed. But still there are more adequate bronies than on /oat/, and I don't want to leave it now. And Ponychan was much more faster if more Russians knew English.
>> No. 458384
Honestly, on the Orion subject, I didn't like the canon at all. It felt far too much like an old boys club where even getting a character in the canon is like running a gauntlet if you aren't part of that club.
