Welcome to Brand New Day
Where all characters are welcome and where the officers cry themselves to sleep every night with a box of gummi bears under their pillows.

Current Officers:
Pill Popper!ytAquaRius
Carrot Top!Top/sHa8kY
Inferno(Wielder of the Box)
Suromit/Sound Mind

Welcome to Shade Valley home to many fine folks The cascading shadows from the sun and the hills cast a beautiful yet haunting shade across the small region of the world. Come partake in are various town square activities make a home for yourself,and settle down stranger. In a place where anything can happen.

1. Be respectful.
2. No OP characters please.
3. Post with reason, please don't just *pop out of no where and collapse the world in on itself*.
4. Try contacting the officers if you have a problem.

Battle system:
Players choose a combat rating based on their characters experience and lore.
Striking an enemy player requires a simple 1d20 roll.
A Hit will be 11-20 with 20 being a critical strike, effectively doubling the damage done from the final roll.
A Miss will be 1-10 with a 1 being a critical failure, effectively doing the damage to yourself from the final roll.
The following letters correspond to the amount of damage done on a successful hit.

SSS = 1d20
S= 1d12
A= 1d10
B= 1d8
C= 1d6
D= 1d4
F= 1d1

Example Combat

Pill Popper swings her mace of doom at an unsuspecting Ember. She would roll to hit and the corresponding damage roll to her rating, which is A Rank.

1d20 = 7

1d10 = 7

This will effectively be her turn in combat.

Character Sheet Model:




Combat rank:


Cutie mark/Talent:

Guild/Faction/Religion etc. Note: This is for later in game.

I forgot to add a few things about Sand Swiper. One is that while she can speak and understand languages, she cannot read very well if it's not the language her tribe uses. This might be a factor. Also I noticed on the wiki I forgot age and sexuality. She is for the most part heterosexual but she is curious. Her age is about 26.

It's a lil bit of both atm.

We have two arcs currently going on.

Heart of Ice,and Silent ponyville 2 going on in separate threads. So we dont disrupt those who wish to due more social RP's instead of mystery solving, Or exploring lore while the ever threat of combat lumes.

Every user is encouraged to due their own arcs with friends and stuff and occasionally we will have events in the main thread that anyone can actively join.

As of now the main threat in the canon is the illusive mare. Who has been currently putting smaller companies out of business.

I should also mention were not always serious here. On occasion we do have random silly things that happen on a whimsey.

Between 25 and 30. Alot of us seem to converge on the holidays or breaks due to school and work,but on average 5-12 on weekdays. There is always someone on.

Also sometimes we get together and game..If I have to say one thing about us were like an odd happy dysfunctional family. We would also love for new people to be apart of that family.

Combat ranks are decided by the user the higher the rank the more history we will probably ask you to provide. Only rank that is restricted is triple S. Thats reserved for end arc bosses.

S- Spartan 117,Space marine,Possible Demigod.

A- Rank: Military,Mercenary,Combat master ect.

B- Skilled hunter,soldier,ect

C-Standard armed civilian rank knows there away around a gun,and is capable of personal defense.

D-Teen or foal knows how to swing wildly at something

F-Baby toddler or perhaps handicapped.

nutshell: Zero hour which was a bit of a cluster fuck but it had its reason for being like that. We needed it to involve space time shenanigans so we could say there is some type of temporal time space distortion,and thats how some people from different times/dimensions end up here. It basically involved a pony made god going nuts over her losing her lover and becoming a pseudo god through odd events. Which left her alone with her thought ec ect she went mad and tried destroying everything,and ect ect someone sacrificed themselves and basically removed her from all of creation by sealing her away,and thus this caused an unnatural reset. Which leads to the slight tears that pop up from time to time.

Yes I know it sounds bad,but eh trying to make something Earthbound/Mother inspired work is sort of hard. Considering i was dming for 2 canons because it was a cross over event. It was like playing DND but with like 50 people and conflicting schedules,But eh it tested my limits as a dm I suppose.

Well the Illusive mare who came out of no where has been jumping technology up to a high level. Like mass effect level tech,but because its from a different time the world has to slowly progress to well the stage of where it came from.

Basically she has shiny new toys from the future,and she's releasing them to the public,and the military. But yet the towns have a modern small town feel..Or at least shade valley does. No one has ventured out to the other regions as of yet.

Shade Valley,and Pumpkin Valley have a supernatural fall like theme.

Thats where we have a melting pot thanks to the cross over. Culture of the town itself is is they are very festive,and spiritual they respect the dead a lot in Shade Valley. There is a small night life with the bars,and everything. It's sort of like a quiet town but it has a really active night life. There are also many deities which some of officers play to give individuals quests,and we do have some vampire the masquerade stuff thats hidden in the canon. No one has done anything greatly evil or good or neutral to draw their attention though.

Name: Victoria the Victoryful

Age: 26

Alignment: Lawful Good (but not particularly smart)

History: This mare is a hero from old Equestria, just a couple hundred years after the banishment of the rebellious princess of the night. She is a champion of combat, having led the weakened nation's armies against the opportunistic rivals such as the griffon empire. She wields one of Equestria's treasures, a holy halberd, in battle, and her cutie mark symbolizes nothing short of Victory. It is said that she never loses a fair fight, but she despises those who would fight dirty (because she never sees it coming). In the future, a statue of her waving the flag of battle would be erected in the Canterlot gardens.

Combat rank: A

Personality: Cocky and headstrong, she sees duels as the most fitting way to settle any dispute. Not necessarily combat, she'll take on anyone in practically any fortitude based challenge (next to combat, her favorite is drinking). She is fiercely loyal to Celestia.

Cutie mark/Talent: Victory

Guild/Faction/Religion etc: Equestria, Celestia

Notes: I have no idea what counts as OP in this canon, so if I'm asking too much feel free to tell me. Her weapon is unique and she won't replace it, how does +5 damage sound? Her Victory talent could just be for show, or could possibly serve as a small bonus in fair challenges.

Yes they would be able to, but it would be up to us officers to decide if the training was sufficient enough to do it, only because we don't want people saying. "I trained! I get a higher combat rank!" Doing that, won't fly very well.
>> No. 448175
Okay. Just wondering about that. Might add in a new character soon, too. Depends on if stuff at home and school allow me time to play two characters. Also how would someone go around getting special equipment? Just buy it or something like that? Or does an officer need to approve some of use of something like that?
>> No. 448176
File 138464368720.jpg - (63.15KB , 640x360 , Pinkamena Smile1.jpg )
Some can be bought but the most you can add to it would be a +2 or +1, usually they'd be only on stat, like Damage or Hit, and a maximum of 10 HP, but you can't go gung ho and purchase an ungodly amount of items and put them all on to get like a +20 to everything. Could you imagine someone walking around looking like a walking junk heap? It's be stupid. Hilarious, but stupid.
Back on topic, the best things you can get are from bosses or monsters the officers usually DM, as only the officers can give out or approve any item +3 in any stat ((Or both) Or a high HP value) or higher.
>> No. 448179
So if I were to give Sand Swiper a potion bag that allowed her +2 potion effectiveness with rolls involving potions so it would look like
>Sand Swiper uses a health potion to restore some health
1d20 = 7
1d4+2 = 3

Would that be okay?
>> No. 448180
File 138464410731.png - (265.64KB , 600x695 , Pinkamena sweater uhh.png )
Yes, it would be okay, but it would be a temporary effect, most likely a 2 turn thing, not something that would be permanent. Again, unless such an item is approved by an officer, or given out by an officer to be a permanent thing.
Hint: That's something we won't allow as it would allow someone to become too OP and be able to curb stomp anyone, and make it less fun.
>> No. 448181
Actually this brings up a point I was going to ask because even though Sand is not good with actual combat, she is a very skilled potion crafter. Could her potion effectiveness be different from her combat rank or are those two things intertwined?
>> No. 448182
File 138464435078.png - (167.15KB , 594x706 , Pinkamena oh okay.png )
Well if it doesn't do damage, a simple 1d20 for effectiveness, like healing for example. For damaging, you'd have to roll the 1d20 for hit, then your combat rank
>> No. 448183
Okay. I can understand that. What about things like a poison effect? Like say if someone were to be poisoned with damage over time equal to the 1d20 and then the damage roll?
>> No. 448184
File 138464462260.png - (301.00KB , 760x826 , Applebloom Airbending tornadeo.png )
I believe that would be a 1d2 for a damage, a 1d20 to see if it hit, or worked, and then a 1d5 for how many turns it lasts.
>> No. 448185
Okay. And with potions that give damage boost would last only one or two turns, right? Sorry if I'm asking too many questions. The way I see Sand is more like a support and healing character in combat which makes rules seem a little different than just hit and damage rolls.
>> No. 448186
File 138464525325.png - (64.91KB , 213x228 , Applebloom pleased.png )
No no , it's okay, keep asking, clarity is good. Well no one has actually made a support character before, but we do have rules for them, and yes a damage boost would only last for 1 or 2 turns. But for a support, and using in battle. Like, out of battle, just a 1d20 for effectiveness. And in combat, 1d20 to hit, and your combat rank, keeps the playing field fair if you're ever fighting other people.

Thank ya kindly, unfortunately it seems that they decided to make a new thread... One that has the updated officer list...
