OOC Room for Rent OOC - (Closed)

Recommended Posts

New Mane City: the city that never sleeps. Something’s always moving, always talking, always eating, always planning, always working on something. It’s a city of progress and growth; always trying to find something new and innovative to move forward and to get better. A city of quirks; offering the odd and out of the ordinary to keep from going in a rut, or to just appeal to everypony’s tastes. A city of liveliness; the place where you’ll never find yourself alone on a city block.

You must know where you stand, right? You’re here in the city, so you gotta feel happy right? Maybe you’re not quite there yet? Or maybe you’re trying to make something for yourself in this big metropolis? Or how about making your name known to everyone else in the grand scheme of things? Well, this is New Mane City. It’s a tough place and putting in your work is only part of the battle. Your 100% ain’t exactly guaranteeing anything.

What about friends and family? Got a lot of em? Maybe just a few? C’mon, this is the big city! You’re bound to meet tons of ponies. Some go on jogs, some to the park, some live the nightclub life, some live the indoor life, and maybe that’s your cup of coffee right there. All I’m saying is you ain’t getting far without some friends backing you up.

And where do you hail from? You part of Manehattan? Where business and fashion are as standard as peanut butter and jelly? How about The Bronc? Strong place that’s got its ears in all kinds of music. There’s also Preens if you’re interested in meeting tons of ponies, griffons, buffalo, zebras, and maybe a few more that I might have never heard of. You also got Bucklyn down south. Place is so filled with art and culture that it can donate a stable ton of works to fill Canterlot’s museums three times over! And don’t get me started on Stallion Island. Resorts, casinos, amusement parks, and a ton of other tourist attractions to get everypony’s smile on.

So what’s your plan? Where ya going? Who are you meeting? What are you gonna do? All your questions will be answered and all your answers will be questioned. It’s New Mane City, baby! Can’t get any more lively than this place. So sit back, relax, and get to work. It’s your life!

IC Thread: http://mlpforums.com/topic/101661-room-for-rent-sol-adv-rp/

Welcome to Room for Rent! An advanced Slice-of-Life Pony RP taking place in the MLPverse’s version of New York City! The 5 boroughs are the main locale for this RP, where the locations described above of New Mane City are all in relation to their actual locations in New York City. There are a number of things to go over in the general workings of New Mane City:

The five boroughs are Manehattan (Manhattan), The Bronc (The Bronx), Bucklyn (Brooklyn), Preens (Queens), and Stallion Island (Staten Island). They are centers of business and fashion, music, culture and art, species diversity and equality, and tourism and luxury locales, respectively. While they are centers of their own specialty, it does not exclusively mean they belong there. One can have a music career, but reside in Preens. It also means one specialty can be found in another borough, but that specialty won’t be as concentrated as the borough it’s known in.

Rail cars are local transports within each borough. They are the equivalent of buses. They won’t travel to other boroughs, but they will get to the edge of one. They have this appearance (http://goo.gl/yrZCv5) but with added/modified space to accommodate ponies. The drivers are unicorns, since they can magically repel the rail in the street with the rail under the car.

Underground steam trains are cross-borough transports. They are the equivalent of subways/metros. They will provide speedy transport to and from the different boroughs, though they also make getting through one borough a lot quicker. And while they are fast, they’re not as flexible in stops; buses can access more locations within a borough than the trains. Drivers and workers are often pegasi and earth ponies since there is more unicorn demand on the rail cars.

Bits can be used to ride the rail cars and steam trains, but a more convenient method is available through MetroCards. They have a magical black bar on the bottom of the card for scanning when getting on either transport. While a ride to get on costs 2 bits, filling up a card in a pay-per-ride charge can hold up to 20 bits in an orange glow over the black bar. The bar depletes on every use. There are also timed charges lasting either one week costing 25 bits and holding a green charge and a one month charge costing 90 bits and holding a blue charge. While the black bar holds the orange charge indefinitely, it can only hold the green and blue charges for one week and one month, respectively. The card must also be fully depleted to use a charge of a different kind. Cards can also be lightly shaken to see how much money or time is left on the card's charge through the glow. Transfers from one train to another, one rail car to another, or a combination of the two, are free within an hour of use of the pay-per-ride charge.

You may submit only 1 character for this RP, but they can reside in any of the 5 boroughs. You are also not limited to position your job in the same borough as where you live. It can easily be in another borough. I also request that you stick with this RP! If you need to take a pause for whatever reason life throws at you, please let me know as soon as possible by either leaving a message here on the OOC thread or PMing me on the forums. There will currently be a post limit in the beginning to see how things run out. You can only post after 2 other players have or 24 hours after your initial post.

Link your characters so I may approve of them to make sure they fit with the RP and are detailed enough. This is not to say your characters will be how I want them, but rather to make sure they are developed for the RP. I also request you provide a link to a prior RP you have taken a part of which doesn’t necessarily have to be with that character. I would like to see how you roleplay which will also take into account whether you may partake in this RP.

Aside from linking your characters, please list in the Other Section which borough he or she resides in and what profession (if any) your character has. Please be as detailed as possible in his/her role, what he or she does in a typical work day, what the business/company/group/band/etc. is, work hours (if applicable), and any other details you think are necessary and/or important.

I am expecting full paragraphed responses. I will not tolerate one-liners or one to two sentence responses.

The following races are allowed: Earth Ponies, Unicorns, Pegasi, Griffons, Donkeys, Mules, Buffalo, and Zebras.

The following races are not allowed: Alicorns, Dragons, Draconequus, and Changelings.

For any other races not listed here, please contact me first to see if it is allowed. I also will not accept any canon characters (even slight variances), only OCs.

This is a world where I do not see guns existing or swords/knives being used to hurt others. That being said, violence is still a thing that can happen, if you so choose to do so. It’s just more in the conventional MLP way, and not the human life way. Romance and sex are also things that can happen, but if you want to roleplay such acts, please direct yourselves to PMs. Alternatively, you and the other party/parties can give us the assumption that a sexual act was made by typing “Fade To Pink,” if you wish to speed through things or whatever reason(s) you may have.

If you have any questions, comments, and/or concerns, please leave a message below! I hope this’ll be a fun RP for all of us!

@@Wolfe,

 

Seriously. You really don't need that much for an RP. You really just need the OC bio.  

 

And that really offended me. No joke. '

 

 

And also, it's not really a slice of life if you're putting so much limits on ponies like having a set ammount of bits and making ponies have to pay for certain services.

I mean, if you read, you would have known, so sorry.

 

And it does matter. This is an advanced RP which has rules and such. So if you don't want to follow such rules, then you my find another roleplay. I'm not trying to offend, but this is my roleplay and I'd like to see it with some requisites.

Oh, you really never said it was an advanced RP. Personally, I can't see this RP being advanced, because it will put interaction at a minimum. SOL RPs are usually just regular RPs with only a few restrictions.

I'm simply just looking for people to put in lengthy, detailed responses, as compared to one-liners and 1-2 sentence responses. If anything, it was an oversight on my part by neglecting to detail some of these things.

Well, seeing as ponies can easily try to bypass the character limit with mega-fillers and all that...the problem is...not many ponies do advanced RPs around here.

Well I for one appreciate that someone is looking at doing a SoL that doesn't simply include a bunch of one line posts: I'd gladly join.

 

Here's my character, Scarlet. Scribble will probably recall her being an absolute %*#!, but she's the one best suited to this type of setting. I've not had much chance to develop her, hence the somewhat short character page.

 

http://mlpforums.com/page/roleplay-characters/_/scarlet-rose-r6189

 

She would be living in Bucklyn... and looking at your characters Bio, possibly working for Java, serving coffee?

Well, the page is really lacking in details, specifically with where he's living, where/what his job is, and other details that may be useful for this RP.

 

If you can add those things, to the Other Section, I'd be happy to take another look. I'll just put a little reserved mark on the list for you.

I'm intrigued... I'm not 100% sure how such a broad scope will pan out, but I'm intrigued nevertheless. (An advanced canon roleplay in the regular half of the forums? Hallelujah! Don't let the naysayers get you down, you've pulled in few really great role players already.)

 

I'll give this a shot with Kay Dreamer. She's an itinerant; I'll probably have her stay in Manehattan for now, as she's technically a tourist wherever she goes. She'll be busking by day, pulling in enough bits to get her here and there to explore. I'd expect she probably has an arrangement with her accommodation as well; she plays in the hotel lounge by night in return for her room. She wouldn't be able to afford it, otherwise.

A broad scope is fine, so long as players have some initiative. It usually fails because folks are scared to RP in a situation where they aren't being interacted with.

 

If Scarlet served some coffee and locked up the shop for example, I'd probably be making the next 3 - 4 posts without any interaction as she went home and stuff. That doesn't bother me, but a lot of folks just give up and stop posting in that situation.

Yeah. The broad scope can be a bit of a challenge, but I did want to allow players to paint the landscape of New Mane City by leaving it open. There are the 5 boroughs, sure, but it's up to the players to dictate that there is something within that borough worth of interest, whether it's a shop, a business, a park, a recurring event, a landmark, and many more that could be thought and acted upon. I also like the broad aspect because a limited area can be constricting as well in certain lights.

 

The only things I thought to make concrete were the 5 boroughs, what each is famous for (again, not mandatory to have X job in X borough) and the transport system to mimic something like New York's transit system, since I'm a New Yorker myself. (Also I like numbers so I wanted to list prices for MetroCards which seem reasonable and offer incentive for longer length cards, but also allowing players to legitimize purchasing a certain MetroCard over another if they know their character may travel a lot or not much out of their borough.)

I can't actually edit Kay's bio - she's an EQE character, and once those are accepted they can't be changed. (I'd assume it's to prevent people from having their characters accepted then immediately making inappropriate edits.) I can have a hunt through for her old general RP bio and leave the link to that here, but it's not quite as detailed. I don't have time to amend it with the extra stuff tonight, but hopefully I'll have a chance tomorrow.

I would like to enter this rp, I have an entire post written up with all the details, which I may have to get a friend of mine to post for me. But it has taken me quite the great effort to get here, and hopefully next time I'll be able to catch the damn Internet at the right time.

hello Random people i am a friend of rascals and she personally asked me to post this since she's having technical difficulties at the moment mlp forums at the moment. 
 

Oh, seeing the first couple of posts in this thread definatly made me smile. 
 
I would love to join in with this Slice of life with Time Scribe, who lives here.
A couple of rps with this fella of mine would here, here and here. Though some more rps that I'm a little more proud of are here and here.
 
For certain reasons, that the forum is stopping me, I can't put anything into the other section. But I'll add it here anyway.

Time Scribe works as a Journalist, while trying to strive to finish writing and publish his first ever novel, and possibly short story series. He moved from Canterlot to the big city of Manehatten, though of course most of his work is in Bucklyn. 
He mainly works as a freelance journalist for the Manes Daily, but he also works as a representative for the Canterlot Daily, in which he plays a major role. Things are booming in Manehatten, so it was natural to send one of the Canterlot Daily's best to get the best scoop possible. He does the large and big news for the Canterlot daily, along with a small article where he just showcases interviews with important members of the community. While for the Manes he does freelance and help around the place. 
He get's paid quite well, working for both newspapers and being a better paying job in the Canterlot Daily. 
For a typical work day, Time would mainly explore the city to find new things to write about, go talk to other ponies and the like, understand the city better, and mainly just collects information to use later. He would then go home, relax and enjoy the small things, and then go to writing up either drafts for his articles in the two newspapers, or contuine writing on his novel. 
On some days, he actually goes to the Manes Daily building and do work in there, mainly typing stuff up for the paper and doing other small paper work. 

 
I hope I can be accepted, I loved being with ya in that Shifted rp, and I'm glad that I'm all better now to rp with you again.

If you'll let me I'd like to give this a try with my OC Rag Stitch. And if you say yes I'd like to put him in Bucklyn.

 

His job will be working in a small thrift shop where he stitches up old clothing and such. His shift is from 3:24 AM to 9:00 PM. 

 

To be honest I never really got to RP with him much cause usually the RP just dies. But here are some I've done with my other OCs.
