 @Dji  Yeh, but its loads more hilarious if its a mandatory party dress code! Can't hit up the free buffet if you don't done a cute sailor uniform first!

And of course they are! Though I guess Snapdragons kinda have a bit wonky of a flower stem for bouquets... did see some rather pretty Irises today... Iri?...

 

  Oh, and just got back from reading Nerzhei, @Blitz Boom. Thought occurred to me. You know who I bet would be pretty good at translating a Dragon & Horse ancient book? Perhaps a being that is both dragon & of the species, Equis.    ...and some other random ten or so varied parts. With as many dimensions as Widdershins has gone through, he should have at least some grasp on nearly every language.

    ...and I'm not just saying that because I have a deep-seated, knee-jerk need to become involved in anything dragon related.

@Blitz Boom,

I had said in a previous post here, he did take some scrolls. At least one would have been something of value. This scroll belongs to the cult. The others he had gained for training purposes. What is within the scroll however, is up to you.

Alright, lets get cracking. Starting with @dosey doe

Looks good to me. No issues I can see, and an interesting, somewhat crazy character with some gokd thought put into her. :) Welcome to the flock.

I'd like to ask, did you do the models, or is this one from the show that's usually in the background? Because these are some really good visuals. :D

Beyond that, do you have any preferences to the RP, about how you'd like to start? We can start you off on the side or you can join one of the several crazy things going on in Ponyville right now.

Be aware though, barribg a few from Seamore and myself, all others are currently RP'ing at roughly 21:30 in the evening. If you wish for a day setting, we need to have you start on the side whilst time moves along for the rest of us. :)

           ============================

 

@Dji @Widdershins

Tulips it is then, and I'll look into the snapping turtles or whatever it was. :P

Something quickly to go over with you both though: No skimpy outfits please. This isn't an anime highscool. Plus you know, I wanna try to keep it family friendly here, and skimpy clothing isn't really something that evokes family friendly pictures.

I have no issues with weird, torn, silly, cute, etc. clothes, but please refrain from directly calling some clothing skimpy by word. There's plenty ways you can still have pieces of a wardrobe without calling it that though, long as you explain it in the post rather than going something akin to *Dawn wandered into town, wearing a skimpy outfit that drew the eye* or something like that. :)

           ============================

 

@Widdershins @~Phoenix~

I would be on board with the body swap thing if it were. Sitcom hijinks ensured. :3

                ========================

 

@Widdershins

To cover the book and Nerzhei first, you could offer to translate it, but she wouldn't let you within forty miles of the tome. :)

It's the pinnacle of her research subjects, and draconequui are too unpredictable to not randomly eat it or something similar, which she can't risk.

Plus, it's intertwined ancient equine and draconic. Not as easy to translate, plus she want this to be her own work. I figured that even if she were smarter and more open than most of her kin, she were still a dragon, which means prideful. No wanna share the research credit with a translator shen she is able to do so herself. :3

And she took it up with Ancalagon as he were old enough to tell her of the place was real. That was all she needed to know, as she had a nagging suspiscion the book could be an old hoax she stumbled upon.

As for Null and Void's pictures, it was what I had access too. I use pony creators after all, so I can't control it all. They're supposed to be all black colores in their coats. Like dark holes. :3 Kinda the vibe I tried for. And the manes and tails were meant as silver, but again, I can only work with the tools I have, and colors are hard.

Going on to the Equeatrian thing, I go with what makes sense for mg chara. The ones from outside the norm like Last, who grew up isolated from the from, the sisters who came from another country and only knows persecution, and generally those sho would think Draconequui are hard to accept. I can't see them being generally loved in Equeatria considering their story via Discord, even if some claims he is reformed.

Also, Wham rules.

21:30 of which timezone? I'm US mountain time. If it's anywhere near there, I'll be available at that time.

As for starting location, I can go either way. She lives in Ponyville, so I can come up with an appropriate activity for her regardless of time. There are basically three likely locations for her: her home, at the market, or in the park. If a group actually wants to include her right off, that's fine. Starting by herself is fine too.

The drawings are mine. And thanks! Also, I just added another one.

Speaking of "day setting" what is the current weather and time of day in Ponyville, and the time of year? Are there any holidays or events (such as the summer sun festival) coming up?

Is this a thing that's happening in the RP? I thought this was just some crazy OOC thing. Widdershins said 'skimpy' first, so blame them!

It's 21:30 in RP time, that's what I meant. :) And the setting is early autumn, no special events planned. Might be there can be held a big party when Ponyville is repaired though? Coukd be a thing. :)

As for starting places, we don't have anypony in the park right now, but I can set one in the market that can work and direct you towards the others. Which one you'll stumble into there can be a mystery then. :3

This is the one I had in mind. His name is Clayton Quartz, and he owns a rather large construction firm in Canterlot. He's in Ponyville to help with getting materials there. He's a good chap, you'd like him. :)

Also, you really made those models yourself? You're freaking amazing then. O.o It looks exactly like one from the show.

Wow, you really want to run another guy? You look like you've got enough going on already. Also, she's pretty much the exact opposite of a night owl, sooooo I'm pretty sure she'd be asleep at the moment. Well, I'll figure something out.

(thanks again!)

Hey Blitz! So I know it's been a while since I was last here, but I may be interested in coming back in just for some casual practice if you're looking for additional toons to be in places. I'm not really looking for any particular scenario, just interested in running something a bit less structured for Saffron in the background. :)

   Awww! But I make an excellent Tentacle Beast! Besides, I call 'em that, because whatever else do you call those darling little sailor uniforms that clearly have never been intended for anybeing over the age of eight! You know, those starched-stiff blue & white numbers? Like the ones Mike used to wear in pretty much every acting job he ever took for some reason; the ones he showed the bots back in that one episode?

  Besides. Horses don't wear clothes, so where ya gettin' modesty from here, buddy? Considering how ponies seem to be made of marshmellows & bubblegum, can't think if they even have anything to begin with to show!  So! Yes! This IS just some crazy Oocing thing!

   As for what'll happen with the body kerjiggery with @~Phoenix~, well, she'll just have to bring that up with me once we get over all the recovering, forced healing.... me technically not existing.... well, later on down the road I daresay!

I'm just shooting ideas out here, I don't mean to sound too over-ambitious or pushy. Can't really say that I have much in the way of RPing experience yet myself.

i'm actually gonna put that idea on hold. i'd much rather do something a bit more normal for the story (as normal as you can possibly be with widdershins) and maybe reserve that for a more down the road sorta thing.

Sorry for delays here, but long day, and things have weighed on my mind. Got the post made, but OOC posts won't be until tommorow. Sorry. :(

Just thought I should post this here. hope you find it to your liking. It takes into account something of a fannon for the Zebras. The Fallen Star and their dislike for those touched by the stars. This would have been part of my last post but I wanted you to see and approve it first.

 

The ritual in the scroll is most ancient and Zebra in origin. It speaks of a fallen star and power from consuming others like it. The ritual is quite complicated and has very strict set of requirements for activating said ritual. If belladonna knows of the stars and their alignments, she also knows that this is potentially a very bad ritual that could bring allot of death and destruction if it is ever fully translated. She also finds several scraps of parchment that depicts alterations and adjustments for summoning beings from beyond the star, as it is stated on the scraps of paper.

To be fair, this wedding stuff in the OOC may actually be funny if it happens in the RP.

@Dji Oh, Honeycube. Don't tempt a Druhkonikiss. Well, unless you want to dress an ashen corpse in a pure white wedding dress & drag it down an suddenly appearing aisle!

 

    So, ah, @Blitz Boom & @Lloyd? What's with both of you mentioning me for your current sections of your guyses story? I'm not involved yet, am I? I know you've mentioned a golden idol... but I've since dropped out of that running, giving(...what was it?) Betrayal to Seamore. Thing is, I'm not a mind for the action genre so I get pretty lost in all that blood magic N' stuff you guys were doing. Though, my pirate guy is action-orientated in my mind, so I might be able to work it if it comes to it, but as I stand now, if i'm to get involved into all that, I'll need quite a bit of coaching.

  Like, I dunno, like tossing a cutlass at somepony to pin them to the wall. Seems like a very fine line between action-fighting & "god-modding."

  Actually, come to think of it, this whole Elements of Disharmony stuff seems complicated enough to make its own thread with now.

  Oh, and sorry for being behind in replies. I have... like no time management skills!

Well it's only god modding if you hurt another players OC without giving them room to escape that harm in their own post.

Anyways, at this point it's either you play the guardian as if it wasn't already the element of betrayal and was just a guardian, or the statue is just, there. Or @Blitz Boom controls it. hopefully one of these options work.

That would be a no unless you want to be dragged down the aisle in a wedding dress.

It isn't that much of a bother really. Clayton is one of those I have an easier time writing as I have the idea of how he acts and would respond to thing pretty set in my mind.

I will have to say though, since others seemed to have missed it: It is night time. The market will then be closed, even though the area might hold a few who is trying to make the best of how there's ponies awake later than usual because of the rebuilding efforts etc.

                                            ==================================================================

 

@Dark Horse

Uuhhh... Well, this is awkward, but I honestly have no idea who you are dude, sorry. :/ My bad memory somethings kicks me in the flank.

Though the more accurate sentence is that your name does ring a bell, but I can't place it. Only performer pony I can remember that wasn't female were one who kept writing poetry in every post, and I get the nagging feeling that ain't you.

Anyway, if you're looking for something uncomplicated and just dozing along, we should likely keep you out of the Ponyville main square. Lot's going on there, whereas the forest is a bit calmer. there's a zombie pony, a dryad and soon a dragon out there.

... You know what, might be a bit much still. Want a side adventure not connected to this perhaps? I think I still have an NPC or two in my folder I can make use of, and you can decide later on if you want to merge into one of the groups.

                                        =======================================================================

 

@Widdershins

What can I say? I have to think about the wording of things a bit here. Same reason *lewd* wouldn't really cut it, though yes, I know, that one's far more on the nose. Just figured that it'd be best not to take the chance. You don't want the moderators to chase you after all. :)

And understood @~Phoenix~ we'll save that for another time. Other stuff to get done before that. :)

                                     =========================================================================

 

@WiiGuy2014 Eh, it's fine, I covered it. ^^

Also, good on you to catch the Gaston reference. I couldn't help it. :P

                                        ======================================================================

 

@Midnight_Aurora

I would have preferred that you put it in the RP actually. I stalled away from mentioning what was in the paper as it's your item, and thus, your gig to say what's written on it unless otherwise specified. :)

Still, I'll work on this the next post, see if I can get it incorporated somehow. Have to decide how much Belladonna might know about this particular subject of the stars first. :)

                                           =======================================================================

 

@Dji @Widdershins

I wholeheartedly support this craziness. ^_^ This sort would make everything else happening in the current RP Day seem like nothing. :P

                                              =====================================================================

 

@Widdershins @Lloyd

I keep tagging you because you mentioned taking control of the large golden statue. Even after giving the element over to Seamore, you mentioned taking up another. Hence, I were of the impression that you were still part of this particular side of things. Good to have it cleared up though. :)

As for the action RP, trust me, I am not an expert ont hat. Usual stuff with that I run tends to be against NPC's where i ca control what happens with them. Few pointers though, is to not make a definitive choice about what happens to the other person. Using the cutlass example you mentioned, a proper, neutral one would be *He threw his cutlass at the pony, aiming to pin him/her to the wall*

You can add int hem being distracted, not having a lot of time, or the odds being low for not being hit, but as long as you don't push in something definitively happening with the other's char - unless they have set themselves up for it - you're golden.

And with *being set up for it* I refer to for example Chow, who I had pushed to the point where it was obvious that he were going to be pushed away somehow. Feeding it to my opponent on a platter, so to say. :)

Oh, and as for the statue, you two don't worry. With all the blood being spilled right now, I think this warrants me taking advantage of an opportune distraction via the golden statue. Get ready to make a run for it when it is Lloyd. :)
