#Open #Adventure #Shipping #Ponies #Semi-serious #The Favored Pastime Of /mlp/ #Dungeons and Dragons- With Technicolor Horses!

So, someone pointed out to me that our /rp/ group didn't have an /ooc/ thread. Made me think, "Hey, maybe we oughta ask /ooc/ if this sounds interesting." So that's what I'm doing, now. One sentence summary: it's DnD with ponies, over the Internet.
It's like a tabletop RPG, with classes and races and all that jazz. The rules are to the left of this text, and they're even more expounded upon in the actual rules document. I'll provide links to all of those documents (the racials, the rules, the crossclass) and you guys can read through em, if you even care. Games start at 8:00 EST most times, and go until whenever, but "day games" are not uncommon. Looks like a lot, but it really isn't.

tl;dr, casual RPG for whoever wants to join and has the patience to write a sheet.

Your OC is a poet, correct? Tell me a little about your OC, Raven. No offense meant, I'm just gathering information to help you pick skills and class when you start writing your sheet.
>> No. 454993
>>454992
Raven has a black mane, blue eyes and purple coat.
He is a poet, writer and has some emotional ups and downs. In one story I'm doing, he's a ruthless dictator of the Literary Empire and rules it with an iron hoof
>> No. 454994
>>454993
Dictatorness is good. Don't abuse your subjects too much. Or my sister's trust, for that matter.

Anyways, if he's a poet he sounds like he'll fit the bard class. Bards are cool! And he's an Earth pony, right?
>> No. 454995
>>454994
Yeah. And Raven, even though I relate his dictatorness to a similarity of Hitler, he doesn't do mass genocide. He only kills when its necessary.
>> No. 454997
>>454995
Alright. Sounding good so far. So far we've got a name, class, and race. Next up are your skills. Since this is your first time, we'll go straight bard. What kind of things is Raven good at, specifically?

And now I'mma let Space help you a little with actually writing the sheet and stuff. I'll be back soon. Girly's good at this, don't worry.
>> No. 454998
>>454997
Well,
Raven's darker side has the ability to convince people, be very persuasive and earns followers through words. He can lead firmly, and makes sure everything is in line and organized.
>> No. 454999
>>454998
Alright. He's sounding like a pretty solid character so far.
So, these are all the Bard skills. See how there's 1, 2, and 3 point skills? Pick the skills that you think fit him the best until you have five points worth of skills.

1 Point
-Cheap Shot: recharge 1, weapon; outside of combat, this skill is automatic and renders the target helpless. In combat, 9+ renders the target helpless.
-Improvise: automatic instant, recharge 3; tossing a solution together can be better than stopping to make a plan. Your next roll succeeds on a 4+ but cannot crit
-Inspire: You use song and performance to enthrall a crowd or rally your allies.
Combat: the entire party gains +1 to all rolls next turn, or +2 on a critical success; this bonus does not stack with repeated use. Critical failure replaces the bonus with a -1 penalty to all rolls next turn.
Noncombat: you perform for a gathered audience, and can garner reputation, favors, and resources as the GM deems appropriate.
-Mimic Sound: You can mimic almost to perfection any sound you have heard, be it an orchestra playing or the growling of a wild beast. This skill cannot be used to imitate other sound-based skills.
-Smooth Talker: Can talk a non-hostile thing into not getting in the way, not make a fuss and generally not be an issue.
2 Points
-Con Artist: on success, whatever you say, no one thinks you are trying to deceive them. Characters with evidence or knowledge contrary to your claim may still readily disprove you. Outlandish or ridiculous statements can still get you in trouble. Can also forge documents.
-Terrify: recharge 2; 8+ renders a group of targets helpless
-Fast Moves: Instant, Recharge 3; upon success, makes one action next turn Instant
-Mulligan: Instant, Recharge 4; Re-roll a non-critical failed roll.
3 Points
-Heroism: recharge 8; the whole party turns all non-critical failures when using abilities into successful hits for 3 turns
-Chaos: Recharge 8 after effect ends; Turns all opponents against one another for 2 turns. Any non-critfail counterattack damage is also applied to a random enemy from their infighting.

Don't worry if you're confused, I'll answer any questions you have. Just ask!
>> No. 455001
>>454999
Heroism
Inspire
Smooth talker
>> No. 455002
>>455001
Yay! Alright, now, what kind of items does Raven typically carry with him? Simple stuff.
>> No. 455003
>>455002
Eh. Not too much:
As a dictator, he carries a pistol and is in red and black uniform
As a writer, he just carries a feather quill and ink
>> No. 455004
>>455003
Alright. We'll go with the feather quill and ink for this RP, since it's just basically a separate story from everything. Also, have you wrote any fanfics about him? =)

What's his special talent, also?
>> No. 455005
>>455004
No, but I went on omegle and did rp of the story of his slow takeover on Equestria by having Celestia appeasing him with Manehatten and Ponyville, and is now hostilely taking over the Crystal Empire, but while he's there, he finds "The Magic Mirror...." The rest is yet to be told

His main talent is, of course, writing

Does he have a special talent?

What do you mean by special talent?
>> No. 455008
>>455007
Like, what does his cutie mark mean? Is he especially good at writing or something like that?
>> No. 455009
>>455008
He earned his cutie mark when he was a young foal by writing an impressive poem he called "Flower". At least, impressive for the age he was. He improved over time
>> No. 455010
>>455009
Alright, gimme a second...
>> No. 455011
>>455009
Actually, which of these seems the best for him? One last thing.

-Stand Firm: Instant, Once per combat after success; Plant your hooves deep and be as still as a mountain. As an instant action roll to lock your hits remaining at their current spot. At the start of next turn, you begin with that number of hits. This does not protect you from wound damage that exceeds your locked hits.
-Earthly Affinity: Earth ponies have a special connection to the land. Pick one land type, e.g plains, island, swamp, mountain, forest. When on chosen terrain, your rolls to recover from helplessness are DC4 and transversing on your home terrain is automatic.
-Earth Pony Way: Being born without a horn or wings has taught you how to spend more time and effort in the things you do. You can pick one skill and gain a +1 bonus. This does not include non-skill actions like melee attacks or recovering from helplessness.
-Workhorse: passive; Many Earth Ponies are bred for physical labor and other daunting tasks that exhaust others quickly. You can catch your breath faster, work harder and work longer. Tends to be pretty useful in combat. When not taking a normal or instant action you automatically regain a hit.
>> No. 455012
>>455011
Earth Pony way
>> No. 455013
>>455012
OK, what skill do you want the bonus to go to?
>> No. 455014
>>455013
Inspire
>> No. 455015
Name: Raven Heart
Sex: Male
Race: Earth Pony
Class: Bard
Skills:

-Tough: passive; Earth ponies take 1 additional hit before becoming helpless as well as 1 extra wound once they become helpless, for a total of 6 hits and 6 wounds without other modifiers. They can also lift, carry and move heavier objects than unicorns and pegasi.
-Earth Pony Way: Being born without a horn or wings has taught you how to spend more time and effort in the things you do. You can pick one skill and gain a +1 bonus. This does not include non-skill actions like melee attacks or recovering from helplessness. [+1 to Inspire]
-Heroism: recharge 8; the whole party turns all non-critical failures when using abilities into successful hits for 3 turns
-Inspire: You use song and performance to enthrall a crowd or rally your allies.
-Smooth Talker: Can talk a non-hostile thing into not getting in the way, not make a fuss and generally not be an issue.

Talent: A skilled writer, Raven takes a +2 to Inspire.

Items: A quill pen and ink.

Description: Raven has a black mane, blue eyes and purple coat. He is a poet, writer and has some emotional ups and downs.

I only use that term to describe blonde/blue eyed people in one word. But then... Maybe instead I can call them golden blues...

Well, anything other than Aryan. Or just say "blonde haired, blue eyed." Because it doesn't matter what you use that word for, it still has negative connotations. ='(

You know what's really sad? The word "Aryan" was originally used to describe Euroasian migraters, but tainted by the Nazis. Same for the swastika, a religious symbol from India, tainted by the frickin Nazis

Yeah. The Nazis fucked up a lot of things. It's too bad =( The swastika used to be a good luck symbol and all.
>> No. 455154

Now its seen as a symbol of extreme nationalism, racism, Anti Semitism and Hatred... Anywho. May I talk with you on omegle? Under batpony
Actually, nevermind. I changed my mind. No need to go on

We can, yeah. Actually, that would be perfect. Space said that she wanted you and me to talk, so we could like, be closer or whatever.

I dunno, I think it was just an excuse to go watch her silly animu shows. =/ But hey, I'd like to talk to you, yeah.
