#Open #Canon #General #Normal

The D:E canon is dead. I've finally come to terms with that. Every character arc had been completed, and then some, and everything had utterly collapsed all over itself.

That's why it's time to start over again.

We wipe everything. Memories, experiences, the whole shebang. Wash it out, scrub it clean. All the messes a lot of us made and scars a lot of us carved that made things irreparable, whether on a character scale or otherwise? G-O-N-E. This is where we're going to form new relationships, develop new memories.

i.e. This is where we try to make something of this board again, this time without all the tripping up we did the first time.

It's better than nothing, at least.

Hey, I think I would like to join. Is there a character sheet I need to be aware of, specific rules, genre, or anything in particular? Anyways I'll just provide some basic information for my character.

Name: Critical Hit
Gender: Male
Race: Unicorn
Description: Pic, Brown eyes (Just using this from an old thread and I can use something else if it need be).
>> No. 458481
There's no specific signup or specific rules or anything. This is a recreation of the completely open, "default" canon from /rp/'s earliest days. Anything goes, as long as you respect other users and what they want in their threads of course.

Hey, Just a quick question. Is this mlp only?
Probably a stupid question since you said anything goes, but hey, better to be safe than sorry
>> No. 458486
D:E was open for pretty much everything back then, so my guess is that it's not mlp only unless specified in a thread.
>> No. 458487
So we're in Equestria and we can do what ever we want? I wouldn't derail anything, just would do some extreme traveling. One thing I need to know is where are we starting? I know we are in a town but the question is which one?
>> No. 458488
I assume Ponyville. That's where the heart of the last incarnation took place. But it's really up to everyone. I left it ambiguous for a reason.

Yeah, I know... When the original DE collapsed, it took most of the RPers with it. I just can't help but wonder how many of my old friends are still here by any chance.
>> No. 458492
Ah well, maybe they will join up. If not then it's nothing to worry about. Just keep doing what you do.

Unon! Glad to see you're still here.

...though that reminds me. Some characters met each other in other canons... like Baffle met Izzy and co. as an infant in Trotswood. I'm conflicted on what to do about situations like that.

Well, I'll roll with whatever you decide makes sense. Though, Terra/Iselia/Sotil will still be similar to their Trotswood version, since that's where they started ad all.

Yeah, I'll go with "you can import from another canon if you want". So Baffle will know them from his childhood.

You're gonna have fun doing that one. You probably already know this place doesn't get even a bit of the traffic it used to. A shame really, but, most people bailed after D:E started falling.

If I can pick up the pieces, though, then it WILL BE DONE.
Besides, isn't there some kind of merger that will bring in more users?
>> No. 458523
That's the hard part. Not only has the site lost a lot of its population ( Well /rp/ has, at least ) But there's also the issue of attempting to rope people in. Best a' luck with that, because I never managed it myself.

Yeah, I'm not having any luck with roping people in right now. I even tried bringing it up on /oat/, and basically got laughed at.

Like I said, though, holding out for this Merger thing to bring in a bunch of new life. People from another site might never have seen /rp/ before, and might be exactly what we need to kickstart our beloved general canon again.

Don't worry, Baffle's not going to freak out at HA this time, if they come back. That's one of the mistakes I wanted to fix.

I mean, he'll still get scared if they threaten him directly, of course, but I seriously regret how he became, for lack of a better word, a monomaniacal psychopath over them in the original canon, so he's not going to lose it unprovoked like he used to.

And he's DEFINITELY not going to try to go on the warpath this time. He developed a serious case of the Gary Stus over time back in the original, so I'm going back to his original design intent - a scrawny coward and ultimately a completely ordinary shopkeeper who's useless in a fight. Because he really has no place being anywhere near a fight, what the fuck was I thinking back then.

Well, the time around HA was a... learning experience, anyway. I have to write badly before I know how to write well and all that...

I'm still really ashamed about it, honestly. Especially what happened with Dusk Bright. For a while, I considered retiring Baffle as a character permanently mostly because of that moment.

I doubt it can be like old times ever again.
But the least one can do is strive to be creative and make memories together, of which will later be looked back at as 'good old times'

"Just hop in", "make new threads willy-nilly", "utterly, truly, completely" open. Provided, of course, you're respectful to other users.

After all, this used to be the default canon, before the tag system was introduced.

I know...and I've missed it quite a bit honestly. I made one a while back...or attempted to. Not many people joined.

Alright, I might hop in. I just worry about making lasting...story arcs because of how sporadic I am. I don't want to start something and not be able to finish it (pertaining to more serious story arcs).

Honestly I've played too many characters to remember when or what I might have done in DE before. I never played much in it myself, I just like reading along sometimes-it got pretty funny from time to time, and the traffic it used to attract back then was nice. Sometimes people would hop from D.E. into a thread I might have been doing, or just pop up in random silly threads. Think I've missed it mostly because of the nostalgia haha.

The unwritten rules seem to have changed lately, so would anyone object if I opened multiple threads for multiple locations? You know, like we used to do?

'Cuz the current thread is kind of confined.
