Chances are, if you've ever been on the My Little Pony media thread, you've seen the roleplaying antics. Now we've finally started our own thread, (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=257099) we need an OOC thread for it.

Intros!

Dive Bomb, mad scientist. Native of Cloudsdale, he specializes in explosives and futuristic technology, such as antimatter, fusion, and phlebotinum. In the recent past, he's gone from neutral weapons dealer to active contender in the equestrian arms race to repentant anti-hero.

Blunt Trauma, his manservant and bodyguard, is a purple amalgamation of twelve different ponies, stitched together and animated by Dive Bomb. His main attributes are genius level intelligence and being nigh indestructible.

DB's daughter, Athena, was actually born from a cloning attempt gone wrong when angry villagers swarmed the secret base and cast spells into the mix. Since then, she's been mutatedinto an alicorn through one of Boffinspark's retroviruses, and is currently trying to take over the world.

All of this, to be honest, is somewhat indicative of the general character power level of the characters in this thread.

Character bio:

TS-407, aka Tinsel
Robotic soldier, last functioning unit of a mysterious robotic army led by a supercomputer called Control. (Though he will not be the only unit for long). Has only recently gained sentience, and gained emotions only more recently. Just as this thread started, in fact. Before this point, he was on a mission to determine a new primary directive for Control, which he has now decided is to protect the ponies of Equestria.
Because darn it, this RP needs more good guys.

Silent Night is the local undead cult leader. Born in Stalliongrad and is the leader of the Scions of Darkness, he rarely uses his clerical abilites but is neverless stupidly durable thanks to a nigh-constant pumping of negitive energy into his putrid body by some special ability or another. Able to swap bodies with unwilling creatures, he serves the Nightmare with all his power. Apparently. He is effectivly Boffenspark's archenemy, dispite them being in-laws in at least one other reality.

Nightcore is Silents snarky neice, the daughter of a very, very russian sister of his that he later tricked into going into a Tartarusian gate and sealed her in. He ran Nightcore through a mockery of a childhood, and has long hated him for that but has since learned to hate him as a person. Startlingly compitent when she gets even the smallest sliver of power, she often thinks that Silent's passive rule over the Children was weak. Is powerful at sonic magics, but has some basic necromantic skills.

Glory (formerly unnamed) is the local Far-realm esqu entity that takes the form of a vaugly deformed pegusi. Is Nightcores marefriend, and is a potent shapeshifter. Other than that, she's realy just a calm head and rarely fights unless it's needed.

Charnel is a (formerly) little filly who, in Dnd terms, would be a Pesudonatural Fire Elemental(creature) Half-Fiend Ghul. Silents(?) daughter from another dimension, she is ment to be a sort of Raven figure: grows up, end of the world, ect. Currantly, however, this stupidly powerful hug-obsessed filly is mostly like a normal child....if a normal child can use Fleshcrafting at a whim and is almost omipotent when it comes to necromantic or fire-based feats of skill . To young to actual use her skills for her father's goals..for now.

Infernia is the original hug-happy fire elemental. Originaly a major player in the Boffenspark-Silent feud, she is now content in living in the Elemental Plane of Fire and watching the conflict. Charnel is her's and Silents child from a alternet timeline.

Professor Boffinspark is a former student of Princess Celestia and current mad scientist. Based in his small fleet of airships, the professor divides his time between performing dangerous experiments and firing off barrages of friendship blasts from his OFC network. Over his long and frequently bizarre career, the professor has become the archenemy of Silent Night and his cult, spliced his DNA with that of a phoenix and married Princess Pyria of the Fire Elementals.

Igor, Professor Boffinspark’s assistant, is an orangutan granted genius-level intelligence through one of Boffinspark’s early experiments. Having somehow gained exceptional hand-to-hoof combat skills, Igor serves as the professor’s muscle when he encounters problems that can’t be solved via orbital bombardment. While normally Igor’s vocabulary is restricted to the “ooks” common to his species, occasionally he’ll use the airship’s computer as a translation device when he feels the need to make himself heard.
One word of warning, don’t ever refer to Igor as a “monkey”.

Prince Regeln is known throughout Canterlot as Princess Celestia’s personal assistant; however, what few ponies know is that he is in fact a centuries old dragon, raised by Princess Celestia herself, and he has served the Princesses since before Luna became Nightmare Moon. More recently, Regeln has found himself assigned to Professor Boffinspark as an overseer, in hopes that Regeln can prevent the professor from causing Equestria any long-term damage.

Princess Pyria of the Fire Elemental Kingdom is Boffinspark’s wife, having met him while trying to apprehend her wayward younger sister, Infernia. While moderately more reasonable than her trigger-happy husband, Pyria seems to have difficulty with concepts such as restraint, or the idea that ponies don’t react well to beings that descend from the sky in flames while yelling at the top of their lungs.

Octy originated as part of a ninja cloning program started by Professor Boffinspark to provide him with an army of readily disposable minions that could be deployed against Silent Night’s cult members. Unfortunately, according to the professor, such a cloning program is bound to occasionally produce “genetic anomalies”, which in Octy’s case means a giant Pinkie Pie/Octopus monster. Rather than dispose of the monstrosity, Boffinspark used her in several experiments regarding unstable “Pink One” energy, causing Octy to grow to enormous size and emit energy waves hazardous to undead and eldritch abominations. While normally friendly, if somewhat terrifying, Octy has on several occasions demonstrated a fierce sense of protectiveness towards her “father”.

Okay. This thread needs more good guys, am I right?

Enter Morning Chord. He comes from a universe where the Elements of Harmony were lost long ago, their bearers corrupting the Elements themselves with their actions (save Generosity and Kindness, who tried to escape and save some goodness in the world). When Nightmare Moon rose, she easily defeated all who tried to stop her, as there were two Elements missing from the six. She moved to bring all Equestria into eternal night, crushing towns and villages ruthlessly. Celestia's finest unicorn mages worked night and day on a new project to defeat the evil mare: a device that would convert any energy into any other type (heat energy into arcane energy, kinetic energy into sonic, etc.). This would allow Celestia to harness the pure power of the sun as arcane energy to put down Nightmare Moon. They finally created it and presented it to their princess, just as Nightmare Moon flew on silent wings into Canterlot. The Sun Princess's horn glowed. Then, something went wrong.

Celestia's enemy was her sister, so the remaining scholars after the war suspect that it may have had to do with the sun-bearer's reluctance to kill Luna, even in evil form, that contributed to it. Others have speculated that the sun's energy was too much. Whatever the case, the palace exploded in a burst of incredible fire. Both princesses perished. All that was left was the smoking city of Canterlot and the mourning nation of Equestria.

The sun and moon try to stay on the same paths as they did during the reign of Princess Celestia, but they wander erratically, sometimes even crossing each other. Princess Cadence assumed control of the country as best she could, relying on love and tolerance to find good bearers for the remaining Elements. She searched for the two missing Elements as well; her searchers found Generosity far away in the Mild West and Kindness, borne in the shape of a music note on the neck of a colt named Morning Chord.

Morning Chord was kind. He helped all as he could. But he was overburdened by so much need, and, Cadenza giving him the strange device that had killed Nightmare Moon, he used a spell of finding to go to a place where he could find help to rebuild his Equestria, and maybe spread joy there as well.

Morning Chord, physically, is a male dark caramel-colored unicorn whose cutie mark, three half notes, represents his love of music, and whose mane is navy blue. He plays every instrument a little, though his main instruments are the trumpet, saxophone, and piano, jazz and improvisation being his forté. The device, which he always wears, is a silver-colored device that wraps around his horn. His only other possesions are an incredible tumpet and the Element of Kindness. He uses the sonic energy generated through music to augment his magic, and vice versa.

How's it look?

There really isn't an approval process, at least, not what I've seen. Things just sort of flow together like a river of complete illogic. @[email protected]

Anyways, the two dudes I have in play are Candles and Sera.

Since I'm not at an area where I can grab any picture I want, this little drawing will have to do. (http://i.imgur.com/iLWYv.jpg) That's Candles--a navy colt in a torn up robe with an old hat and a magical amulet. He's been charged with, well, 'evacuation': basically just rounding up civillian ponies and giving them free rides to safer, less insane dimensions of Equestria.

He has a traveling companion in the form of Sera: my current avatar, seraphim pony extrodanaire. I'd talk about her, but I'm much rather just play as her a bit instead.

Right, uh... I know I complained a lot about this RP in the main thread, due to my thinking it wasn't really, er, very pony. No hard feelings, right?

Also, making a truce: I won't godmod if you guys don't godmod!

To be fair, Boffenspark and Silent both seem to inhabit the same "basic" Equestria mirror, which includes a ravaged Zebrica, a Elemental Plane for both Shadow and Fire, it's own "rules" for negitive energy, and of course a dead Canterlot.


....Also, Iram, Alpacastan, Llamabad, and Camelshan exist near the so far unmentioned Quaggtar, Lebaaanon, Neighmen, Jourdame, Syrimane, Turkniegh,and Saddle Arabia,which has been shot at with rainbow lazers enough been used enough that the Sandy South might be a genuine sphere.

Well, once upon a time there was the void. And Trixie spoke: Let there be a post. And there was a post.

Over the course of ponythread, we've developed a host of OCs, and a network of some few alliances and mostly enemies. From time to time in ponythread, we'd go to war, until eventually KPenguin told us to take a hike to the free-form roleplay.

There is no meta-plot, and no DM. Much as I despise it, Godmode seems to be in full force, mostly in the form of saying what happens to your opponent. (EG, he won't throw a tree at you, he'll hit you with a thrown tree with no chance to dodge.) Best we can do is just try to live normally with the titans.

Tell the truth, I have no idea. I would theorize that it's more like D&D, except with non-Vancian spellcasting. You have a wide variety of spells, and these spells can be stored for use by non-unicorns.

Dive Bomb prefers to work with magic only as needed; for example, his arsenal of bombs has only three ingredients per bomb: magnets, glass, and antimatter. (So, strictly speaking, grenadiations would need very heavy modification, to the point of no longer resembling grenukes.)

Well, meta-setting-wise, the pictures Balmas posted a little while back started as an attempt to get some kind of handle on the different shards of a setting that were kind of littered all over Ponythread, several of which were clearly entirely seperate continuities and/or equestrias. The ones I actually made were of the darker and more cohesive bits. Specifically, the mad-science equestria that Dive-Bomb and Boffinspark's existence suggests, the Undead heavy non-equestrian districts such as Staliongrad that Silent hails from and the extra-planar insanity that is Thubby and his plane of Gummy*.

The implication is firmly that there would be many different equestrias, but the only pony RP happening with any regularity in Ponythread was usually clearly in the same planar-neighborhood of the Canterlot that was destroyed in the events recently described in the IC thread.

Oh and Bleakmane is explicitely both from an her own alternate universe and a different world to Equestria anyway, due to her OOC origins.

*Gummy being a mysteriously failed attempt at making a pony that dissapeared through a crack in reality formed by the angle between two surfaces and was later adopted by Thubby. There is only one of Gummy, but the dimension he was sent to by Thubby has no linear time at all, so now there is an infinate number of this individual Gummy, with no cohesive time-line or real causality.

edit -

In response to Tiki's latest post:

Nah. Magic here runs entirely on handwavium.


There are two additional meta-level magic techniques practiced in thread.
The lesser of the two is to dictate events via posting of found images.
The greater and rarely practiced is to do the same but with images you have taken the trouble to actually create. These have significantly more power as you can clearly see events actually happening. :smallwink:

Well, when you consider the construction of grenukes, there's not a lot of science to interfere with. They're antimatter in a glass shell, maintained in position through magnets; there's no science to destroy. So, really they'd still work.

For the same reason, the airship hasn't sunk. No steering, certainly, and no electric starter or throttle for the engines, but not sunk; helium continues to be buoyant, regardless of no-tech fields.

Oh, well, I guess that makes sense. ^^

Also, I've had a bad case of the thoughts. Now I am all like, hey, let's see how many Ravnica guilds I can make expies of!

Orzhov: The Orzhov of Ravnica are basically ghost-mobster-ecclesiastical-necromantic-crazy fellows who are run by a council of the ghosts of the oldest and most powerful/rich members. If you can't pay your debts to them in life, they bind your ghost to their service until you've given them everything you owe. In Equestria, I think they'd be a faction which existed in between Discord's reign and Celestia and Luna's ascension. By using clever magics and powerful contracts, they managed to keep their slice of the world safe from Discord... and bled them dry of any wealth they had. After Celestia and Luna defeated Discord, the Orzhov refused to let their debtors ghosts go. C + L fought the council, and by exploiting some weakness in the magic that kept them together as ghosts, banished them into an orb. However, with the destruction of Canterlot, the ghost council is once again free, and they've been rebuilding their church/empire. Now they are starting to show their faces with the other super powers around Equestria.

Azorios: The Azorios Senate of Ravnica is the ruling body of the world. They're a bunch of beaucrats, law mages, and paladins who's goal is peace and stability through excessive laws and government. They've been said to act through not-acting, via taking forever to get any litigation done. Here, I think they'd be an entity based not in Equestria--maybe some sort of unicorn gryphon compact? After seeing the destruction of Canterlot and the disappearance of the Princesses, they've decided to annex what's left of Equestria and put it under their strict, unbending law. I think they'd make a nice counterpart to the insanity of the cults and Boffenspark, and the emphasis on counter-magic and organization means they can probably last more then five minutes here. ^^

Dimir: The Dimir are like, super sneaky secretive dudes. They have an information fetish, know a lot of memory-erasing stuff, and are assassin masters. In Ponyland, they would probably either have worked for Luna, or been an autonomous information amassing group. I'm worried they might infringe on the cult's turf, though.

Izzet: Mad scientists, in a nutshell! They'd probably be an outside Equestria R&D group. Unfortunately, we have Boffenspark and Dive Bomb covering the mad science angle. Maybe they'd be associates? I 'unno.

Rakdos: Crazy circus hedonists led by a sadistic demon with the attention span of a three year old. Unfortunately, we already have a cult!

Golgari: Mushroom necromancers, who love their bugs and zombies and decay and fungus-abominations. They also handled agriculture! In Equestria... probably... the same thing. Necromancer mushroom wizards who farmed. o_O

Gruul: Barbarians from the wild! Yaaaargh! They'd... probably be barbarians from the wild in Equestria! Lots of boars, maybe.

Boros Legion: The fighting force of Ravnica. If the Azorios make the laws, the Boros enforce them. In this world, they'd probably be their own out-of-Equestria organization, except with pegasi/gryphons making up the base. Also, they'd have all sorts of species serving, like diamond dogs and buffalo and dragons in addition to the others. The leaders would probably be angels, but not like Sera. Sera is not a judgement angel.

Selenysia Compact: Hippies! Collectist hippies who want everyone to be one and equal with everyone else, and work for the common good of nature, and also to get rid of individual personality. I'm seeing deer, guys. Mystical forest deer who have come for nature, and bringing with them all their big forest creatures. o.o

Simic: The Simic are biologic engineers. Unlike the Izzet, who are more absent minded professors, the Simic are cold blooded engineers who only wish to improve nature in the most efficient way possible. However, I think they also step on the toes of the science guys.

So, what do you all think? Any of them you would like to induct into the RP?

Well, Blunt would be fine; bored, and constantly rereading his collection of Ebooks on his communicator, but fine.

Athena might be fine; I haven't really decided about the full effects of alicornization. She'd probably wreak havoc on the inhabitants of whereever she lands, though.

Dive Bomb, my primary OC, is actually the weakest, physically. If he weren't researching interdimensional travel, he'd be dead, whether sooner or later.



And Silent and Boffinspark would still be fighting in open space.

Quoted for truth. I cannot help but see the two, at the end of the universe, dueling on some far-away planet as the sun slowly turns red.


Actualy, for giggles, lets see which of my OC's would actualy be doomed if the world realy did shatter....


Nightcore may have the worst chance at surviving, but Glory would probably track her down and the two could probably make it to the EPoF. Charnel could probably bathe in the molten core of the world and be fine, to be honest. Infernia is chilling elsewhere, and Silent is....Silent.

2012-11-30, 12:25 PM
Also, I've had a bad case of the thoughts. Now I am all like, hey, let's see how many Ravnica guilds I can make expies of!

Orzhov: The Orzhov of Ravnica are basically ghost-mobster-ecclesiastical-necromantic-crazy fellows who are run by a council of the ghosts of the oldest and most powerful/rich members. If you can't pay your debts to them in life, they bind your ghost to their service until you've given them everything you owe. In Equestria, I think they'd be a faction which existed in between Discord's reign and Celestia and Luna's ascension. By using clever magics and powerful contracts, they managed to keep their slice of the world safe from Discord... and bled them dry of any wealth they had. After Celestia and Luna defeated Discord, the Orzhov refused to let their debtors ghosts go. C + L fought the council, and by exploiting some weakness in the magic that kept them together as ghosts, banished them into an orb. However, with the destruction of Canterlot, the ghost council is once again free, and they've been rebuilding their church/empire. Now they are starting to show their faces with the other super powers around Equestria.

Azorios: The Azorios Senate of Ravnica is the ruling body of the world. They're a bunch of beaucrats, law mages, and paladins who's goal is peace and stability through excessive laws and government. They've been said to act through not-acting, via taking forever to get any litigation done. Here, I think they'd be an entity based not in Equestria--maybe some sort of unicorn gryphon compact? After seeing the destruction of Canterlot and the disappearance of the Princesses, they've decided to annex what's left of Equestria and put it under their strict, unbending law. I think they'd make a nice counterpart to the insanity of the cults and Boffenspark, and the emphasis on counter-magic and organization means they can probably last more then five minutes here. ^^

Dimir: The Dimir are like, super sneaky secretive dudes. They have an information fetish, know a lot of memory-erasing stuff, and are assassin masters. In Ponyland, they would probably either have worked for Luna, or been an autonomous information amassing group. I'm worried they might infringe on the cult's turf, though.

Izzet: Mad scientists, in a nutshell! They'd probably be an outside Equestria R&D group. Unfortunately, we have Boffenspark and Dive Bomb covering the mad science angle. Maybe they'd be associates? I 'unno.

Rakdos: Crazy circus hedonists led by a sadistic demon with the attention span of a three year old. Unfortunately, we already have a cult!

Golgari: Mushroom necromancers, who love their bugs and zombies and decay and fungus-abominations. They also handled agriculture! In Equestria... probably... the same thing. Necromancer mushroom wizards who farmed. o_O

Gruul: Barbarians from the wild! Yaaaargh! They'd... probably be barbarians from the wild in Equestria! Lots of boars, maybe.

Boros Legion: The fighting force of Ravnica. If the Azorios make the laws, the Boros enforce them. In this world, they'd probably be their own out-of-Equestria organization, except with pegasi/gryphons making up the base. Also, they'd have all sorts of species serving, like diamond dogs and buffalo and dragons in addition to the others. The leaders would probably be angels, but not like Sera. Sera is not a judgement angel.

Selenysia Compact: Hippies! Collectist hippies who want everyone to be one and equal with everyone else, and work for the common good of nature, and also to get rid of individual personality. I'm seeing deer, guys. Mystical forest deer who have come for nature, and bringing with them all their big forest creatures. o.o

Simic: The Simic are biologic engineers. Unlike the Izzet, who are more absent minded professors, the Simic are cold blooded engineers who only wish to improve nature in the most efficient way possible. However, I think they also step on the toes of the science guys.

So, what do you all think? Any of them you would like to induct into the RP?


I want to see the Selenysia compact. They sound like fun.

And you'll find a few posts alluding to them. However, I think I misintepreted the guild itself, and I don't think anyone else is quite interested in following up on it.

Ponythread rp continuity, in the sense of what formed this thread was always exactly this kind of disfunctional, overpowered mess with no rules and selectively applied continuity at best, with most major events explainable as "I found this cool picture, so it happened". Very, very few of the characters or behavior found in this thread and ponythread itself before it was moved out would be tolerated in an established freeform rp, that's the main reason I suggested the rp graduated to it's own thread rather than, say, join the existing freeform pony rp's.

None of us really have enough high-ground to throw stones on this issue. It's only really Thinking Cap who's a clear exception to all this. Candles and Sera are borderline. Bleakmane, Blunt Athena and so on are not. It's just how it is.

For some reason, all I can think of is this one joke of the Jokers.


See, there were these two guys in a lunatic asylum... and one night, one night they decide they don't like living in an asylum any more. They decide they're going to escape! So, like, they get up onto the roof, and there, just across this narrow gap, they see the rooftops of the town, stretching away in the moon light... stretching away to freedom. Now, the first guy, he jumps right across with no problem. But his friend, his friend didn't dare make the leap. Y'see... Y'see, he's afraid of falling. So then, the first guy has an idea... He says 'Hey! I have my flashlight with me! I'll shine it across the gap between the buildings. You can walk along the beam and join me!' B-but the second guy just shakes his head. He suh-says... He says 'Wh-what do you think I am? Crazy? You'd turn it off when I was half way across!

Actualy, to be honest, the roleplay has always been over the top, but the Boffenspark-Silent feud just created a bubble that, when burst, would distroy any chance of this roleplay ever becoming "sane".

Er, if it's not too much to ask, if for some reason anyone gets into a fracas with one of my characters, would it be alright if fellows don't narrate the things that happen to them, and instead merely narrate the actions of their characters?

That would be reeeaaaally cool. Just throwing that out there.

Also, is permission to kill a thing here...? Or does character death just happen whenever?

Tiki Snakes
2012-12-05, 01:22 PM
If this was a civilized RP, or if we were even pretending to be, then usual rules would be that you never dictate the results of your actions when they affect another player's character, which would certainly cover character death, too.

I'm not sure it's something we can count on. I certainly try where appropriate to abide by those conventions, though.

Edit - To recap in an attempt to get my head around what just happened;
Boffinspark just broke the "Gummy Dimension" in an effort to destroy Thubby's...progenator/diety/something.

The Gummy Dimension was, correct me if I'm wrong Thubby, formed by taking an existing, random dimension and stuffing it full of Gummy until there was only Gummy left. This stage is timey-whimey as there are many Gummies but Gummy is a discrete single entity. Or was. Or is. Yeah, Timey Whimey.

And this is, of course, just as planned. Right?

Edit 2 - Ponythread RP cosmology is tricky to keep track of.

Balmas
2012-12-05, 02:27 PM
I'd like to think that people would have the common courtesy to not narrate the actions of others, especially what happens to them. In general, my policy is to avoid doing it to others. If they do something that's just blatantly godmode or affects me and mine overmuch, I'll tell them so politely and ignore it. So, if say, Boffinspark opened a portal to Dive Bomb's lab, stepped out, and shot him in the head, I wouldn't try to deus ex machina or No Sell my way out; I'd just say that he's out of line and ignore it.

Silent did die once. But then he came back by a slowly taking over Nightcore's body, so I guess that does not count.

In essance, you could probably kill whoever you want, but check first if it's okay with whomever is using the charecter or they have a way of coming back. For instance, Silent has suffered:

Being reduced to burnt bones (twice)

Being fused to the ground by his legs, then have them sawed off.

Boffenspark's OFC's, at least a few dozen times.

Nightcore's attempts at killing him, which included causing every one of his bones to be reduced to powder (ah, sound magic)

Relgen's dragonic form, and the subsiquent summoning match that insued between the two.

Igor's physical assaults. Take note that Silent is a squishy corpse.

Being frozen solid and then being shattered.

Pink One-based attacks.

Being turned into a Muffen-Pony. While chased by Derpy-Ninjas.

Being turned into a mouse.

Having a schizotypal filly with untold amounts of power for a technical daugher. Also produces fire that can actualy hurt him.


And that's just on the top of my head.

I have to agree with this in general, and would like to use a example. Also, pick slightly on thubby.:smallbiggrin:


ah, glory, just the creature i was hoping to see
*bites*
*drains power*
*begins regenerating while sapping the life from glory*


First off, this assumes that Glory is not like, some godly shapeshifter-elder god-thing in the shape of a pony. Heck, she was actualy created for the single reason to make a pony roughly equal power-wise with Thubby, if far less willing to go all-out like he is.

Preferably, I would have written something along the lines of

"Thubby attempted to bite down on Glory's sweet, sweet neck and consume her life energy"

Now, more than likely, Glory could have fought back. Perhapes it would have sprialed into a giant battle where half the OC's attempt to get away from. Ces't la vie.

(i was thinking back of the neck, similar to where a dog would bite another if it were actually trying to cause harm)
*shakes glory violently by the neck till she stops resisting*
*tosses her into a gummy portal*
i really am sorry about this
*dimension anchors her*
but after that skirmish with the fire brat and then the fleshling's pink one contractor, i was left rather... hungry

sadly, you're the only one around here that makes a good meal.
you understand

This one honestly annoys me to the point that I have a genuine need to post this.

:smallmad:

No choice on the matter of the other player. "Glory gets overwhelmed and gets thrown in the gummy pit" No choice. "Thubby shakes harder on the stubbern mare with his teeth" would have been a better option, frankly.

Just because I can, I'm actually playing this guy as level 20 Wizard, from the Pathfinder ruleset, at least as far as his spells are concerned. I even have a spell list and prepared spells. I'm pulling his magic straight out of the rulebook.

Since not everybody's familiar with D&D/Pathfinder, If I cast a spell on someone, I'll explain what it does ((In OOC voice)) and give you a chance to resist/react.

Also, as a godmodding reminder, high level wizards are VERY slippery, and even if they can't blast their way out of a situation, a prepared wizard can escape from almost anything.

The plan was to get a bunch of viable souls in the area, and to use Charnel's inevitable fire-starting to his advantage. Then, after getting a massive amount of ambient souls and such in the area, use the energy from the "bombs" under the castle that Boffenspark would eventualy set off as a catalyst to turn into that.

Okay:

The plan was to get a bunch of viable souls in the area, and to use Charnel's inevitable fire-starting to his advantage. Then, after getting a massive amount of ambient souls and such in the area, use the energy from the "bombs" under the castle that Boffenspark would eventualy set off as a catalyst to turn into that.

Of course, this was the very last thing he wished to resort too, but still.:smallbiggrin:

Well, there is that shipfull of ponies that Ponyville evacuated into in a bites reach. :smallbiggrin:

He's running on anything that could be called "evil" that's on the surface near Canter-Not, the fires and smoke caused by charnel, the bones of the bears and the fish, and is basicly making a body by soaking up all that sweet, sweet energy that just got unleashed thanks to Boffenspark.

Just because I can, I'm actually playing this guy as level 20 Wizard, from the Pathfinder ruleset, at least as far as his spells are concerned. I even have a spell list and prepared spells. I'm pulling his magic straight out of the rulebook.

Since not everybody's familiar with D&D/Pathfinder, If I cast a spell on someone, I'll explain what it does ((In OOC voice)) and give you a chance to resist/react.

Also, as a godmodding reminder, high level wizards are VERY slippery, and even if they can't blast their way out of a situation, a prepared wizard can escape from almost anything.

Just so you know, you may get a little bit frustrated by this approach. It's a long standing Ponythread RP tradition to No Sell or flat out ignore attacks; power level is at or above CR 20 in most cases. Silent Night is undead, and is pretty much a lich without a phylactery. (He recently took the equivalent of six nukes to the face. That was less than a day ago.) Blunt Trauma is a frankensteinien amalgamation of ponies, dragon, and diamond dog, and is flat-out indestructible. (He was the one delivering the six nukes; he did it by shoving them in his mouth, biting down, and aiming at Silent.) Alabenson is a genetically modified unicorn; he's part pheonix, immune to fire, married to a fire goddess, and is generally not seen physically. Dive Bomb looks like a normal pony, but has genetically enhanced himself to be part dragon, part bear, part manticore. He's producing technology that is centuries ahead of others, such as airships, power armor, a reality extraction ray, and a minigun that creates a beam of fusion reactions through firing bullets at around .8c. That's not even mentioning the arsenal of hand-held antimatter grenukes.

So, yeah. TL:DR: ponythread doesn't play fair. It's a constant stream of one-upmanship, broken by a few stellar examples of actual roleplay.

To put what Balmas is saying about the average power-level here into a D&D perspective;
One of the characters I'm running is Prince Regeln; in D&D terms of power Regeln would be a great wyrm gold dragon with upwards of a dozen levels of sorceror on top of his natural spellcasting, putting his effectve sorceror level in the mid to low 30's.
Regeln likely wouldn't even make it into the top 5 most powerful characters running around here. Possibly not even the top 10.

To be honest, the best way to describe combat in this RP is DBZ levels of ponysanity.

.....For Silent, anyway.


Yes, realy, it is nearly time for the old leatherbag to kick it. The nigh-invulnerable possessive shade-beast that is my main OC has finaly hit the Mary Sue roof, surprisingly quicker than his black-on-red half fire elemental daughter. Hinted to be the local stand in for Rasputin and who knows what else, with more backstories then he has hooves and has survived nightmare knows how many attempts on his un-life, this is probably the last time he could feasably be in the spotlight and me feel good for using him.

I mean, realy, he possessed Celestia. If Boffenspark finds a way beat him, he's crawling to the frozen north for a few generations to nurse his wounds.

But who will take his place?

There's a certain perverse bravura to the thing, and I do have to tip my hat to the timing, with Celestia having been publicly mentioned as missing since Canterlot exploded so many times and stuff.

The funny thing is, compared to some of the stuff that's gone on, this isn't even really that audacious, (except in the sense that it interacts directly with a canon character, which I concede is kind of a thing.)

Should he though? The way I look at it, there is a sense in which Silent Night can forever have won. He can, in one particular sense and entirely subjectively, gain the moral high-ground on a meta level of this particular long running fued, by being classy enough to lose, die and actually stay dead.

Just a thought.

I've pretty much been assuming this from before day 1, might I point out. Hence all that talk of reality-shards and so on. The setting for the thread RP, as explored in ponythread RP and previously in the motherland Ponythreads itself is defined, for me, by the confluence of the grimdark Shards of continuity that Boffinspark, Silent, and to a degree DiveBomb represent.

If you're saying that there has been a dimensional transition at some point recently, you may have to point out to me who transitioned when to where because I think I missed that. It is so hard to keep track, sometimes.

That by itself wouldn't have impacted the current insanity, as Boffinspark moved himself and Celestia (along with the Nightmare) aboard the DERPY II before the spell swallowed the canterhorn.

Charnel, on the other hoof, along with a few of Boffinspark's creations and whoever else was in Canterlot at the time, would presumably have been warped away.

So, just checking on my understanding of everypony's locations:

Canterhorn: Alternate, low magic universe.
Athena, Thinking Cap, Charnel in Canterhorn tunnels.

Canterhorn crater: Pushing Daisies, Curiosity
Airspace near Canterhorn crater: Blunt Trauma in airship full of refugees, Tinsel in Tin Pony Army airship with more refugees, sixteen BTech drones equipped with dimensional portal and reality extractor technology

Derpy II: Boffinspark, Celestia, Nightmare, Igor, OctiPinkie, and I think Silent Night? Not sure exactly what's happening in the clash of the titans.

Mountain Base: Dive Bomb, prototype dimensional portal, various different technologies.

Derpy II: Boffinspark, Celestia, Nightmare, Igor, OctiPinkie, and I think Silent Night? Not sure exactly what's happening in the clash of the titans.

And about a dozen or more former Celestia Clones, apparently awakened by and/or inhabited by Joyreaper, Bleakmane's second in command. (It is unclear, they didn't really explain.) Though they are largely engaging in a private farce and being ignored by the more serious minded ponies present.

Cadance, Regeln, Nightcore, Glory, Pyria, and a new antagonist I haven't fully introduced yet are there as well.

Silent Night is, as far as I can tell, still dead (as opposed to undead). Though given some parts of the various conversations it looks like this is going to be less RIP for him and more BRB.

Clarification: Silent Night is dead. For now.

Also, Glory and Nightcore have no idea whats going on, with Nightcore being a dopy mess infused with all sorts of squishy pink emotions by the Nightmare-possessed Candance and Glory immune to the magic being thrown around but not realy caring. Also, they both think that it's Silent possessing Candance.

To be fair, that was a highly temporary situation (Boffinspark only held onto the power for two posts and lost it by the third), and it came about through a series of events that were a) out of Boffinspark's control and b) are not likely going to repeat themselves.

Personally I'd be in favour of a blanket ban on using canon characters as anything other than background colour (and preferably to a minimum even then). As a compromise, I'd certainly back a proposal to ban the use of canon godlike or pseudo godlike characters to reinforce ones OC's.

There's rampant, shameless Godmodding and there's taking the mickey.

Any series of exchanges which features Celestia, the entire cast of the mane six(Alicornised), Discord and Chrysalis coming to the same characters aid is simply taking things too far even by what few standards Ponythread RP usually runs at.

I have no real idea where the various freed clones have gotten to, partly because I have no idea where Boffinspark's place/ship/etc was where all of that was happening. The two in the last post there are somewhere distant from wherever they escaped from, and the various other Clonicorns are, by now, one or more of the following;

Dead due to bumping into crazy Boffinspark thingies.
Dead due to each other.
Dead due to misadventure.
Dead due to a technicality, having been rescued by and recruited by Bleakmane the Space Vampire Unicorn Princess
Elsewhere in Equestria or beyond, having been rescued but not recruited by Bleakmane the Space Vampire Unicorn Princess.
Elsewhere in Equestria having gotten there under their own power.
On another plane, having gotten there either under their own power or via misadventure.

And so on.

Named Clonicorns so far, we have Exposition, Curious and Frantic.
Curious's mane is still a Tia'ish shade of pink. Expositions mane is a light blue, and Frantic's mane is a vibrant red. None of their mane's swirl or do weird Alicorn things, being basically normal manes like Cadence posesses rather than Celestia or Luna's magical looking manes.

Given this is Boffinspark we're talking about, I figure there were plenty of cloned bodies to go around. Some won't even have been awakened. And plenty of the awakened Clonicorns would have stumbled dumbly into just such magic, so that works.

Note; most Clonicorns will have only rudimentary unicorn magic, or worse. Only a few will retain any knowledge of or talent for Blood Magic and fewer still would be capable of surviving using it. Some Clonicorns will have formed around very strange personality fragments, consult a trained professional before use.

If in doubt, consult manifacturer for a list of potential Clonicorn use side-effects.

Hello, I want in.

My O.C is effectivly my Character from AdventureQuest, from a timeline were he lift his dimension and came to this one to study it.

His name is Shadow Claw.
He is a Dracopyre, a combination of Vampire werewolf and dragon. He is also A master wizard, and has trained in almost every type of magic in his home world of lore, and is in fact one of the few beings to be able to wield the powers of a Necromancer and a paladin(Not mutually exclusive on Lore, and in fact are different applications of the same type of magic)

Everything he says he has done is something that I have done while playing the Game. I will attempt to not include things done after his introduction, cause parallel timelines and crap.

Despite being Undead and a necromancer, he is not Evil. He is Technically Good, but is on the border to neutrality. He is mostly in it for research, but does have a soft spot for children, and cute animals (which is why he came to study Equestria)

He spends most of his time in his transformed state depicted below, because its Draconic traits allow him blend in better than his Human form does.http://i174.photobucket.com/albums/w85/Pie_Eata/DracopyreOfNight.jpg

He brings with him his Blade of Awe, aligned to water, and is accompanied by his three Shadow Pony minions Ink Jet, Dark Spot, And Dusk Twinkle(Who insists on being Called Nyx Solaris) as well as an indeterminate number of Deadeyes, which are soulless, semi-sentient, undead archers that are infused with shadow magic.( Shadow stuff on lore is a perfect mixture of light and Darkness, so bth elements are only 50% effective Against my minions)Ink Jet

Finally made my way back here (I think I accidentally unsubscribed or something), so yeah, I'd like that rundown, please. Sorry about being so late. :smalleek:

I'm working on fleshing out my character right now, so I should hopefully be ready to play by the time you see this and get back to me.

The thing kind of dried up naturally, man. I mean, if you really need it, I'll give you the basics, but the thread is there. Perhaps if you feel it worth trying to kickstart the thread up again, you should read it first.

Hmm, 'tis a fair point. If it dried up on its own, no point in asking for a recap; there's little risk of it progressing while I catch up. I'll go do that.
