Casual Stroll - An Introductionary RP mainly around Equestria OOC [Open Entry For All]


Recommended Posts

@Starforce

Had to go far back, but found it. His name is Operata Symphonia. AKA: The mad tenor. And his cats are called Sonata, and Falsetto. :)

As for what you wrote... I have a zebra halfling. She's just a doctor though, not a hero, but she could be one they went to look for. Maybe she'd be enticed knowing there were others like her, who actually had made it fine?

Struggling a bit to think of what she'd do, since the only alicorns, are those in the show, and I try not to control those, as I fear messing it up, since I don't watch the show.

Hmm... How would she feel about going after an alicorn I just made up? An unfortunate soul, struck by a surge of magic that's out of his control? eluded to *accidental alicornification* some time before in the RP, which is where it's not filtered right, and most undergoing it goes mad. Otherwise, after being defeated, Operata might ask into what it is that drives her, and as she tells her story, he'll ask her why she didn't get revenge on them then, as they were to blame. Why bother with randoms, since that would never satisfy her anger. They could go and hunt those down, and in the process, she might learn something. Be it about forgiveness, or how revenge won't satisfy that anger she feels. Perhaps then, she'd be willing to listen to suggestions about what else to do? I dunno, spitballing it a bit here.

Just say she's an advanced Hydromancer. She controls water to enough of a degree, that it too can become ice. Ice crystals for instance, of some strength. And if she can make the ice how she wants, she can likely form it to her will too, so ice weapons. Magic ice, so it doesn't just melt in the sun like regular ice.

Sounds good. I am fine with whichever character you would like to play. You had another one too, that demon one with the coat? Unless I am misremembering something here, but either way Magloria is on a ruthless quest to satisfy her own desires for vengeance. She also has goals to become an alicorn herself too, why not take what they have, and become that herself? At least that is what she is thinking. She would gladly go after any alicorns she can and attempt to find some sort of method to remove their wings magically. Perhaps to re-form their wings as her own.

As for her magic, that also works quite well. I feel like she would be naturally suited to cold climates and would find a great advantage within them. Now, she wouldn't be killing anyone in this RP. She would however, aim to find a way to steal their spells and make them her own for her next plans, perhaps.

I feel like Magloria would also have a nice suit of crystalline armor. Maybe she had revenge on those who wronged them by them becoming the first ones she stole their magic from. As for the magic stealing, it wouldn't be like Magnolia's stealing, it is something more innate to her character and involves crystals.

I'd like to keep him around, or one like him around. Do note that Magloria would be a lot harder to get to open up and it could take years for her to change her mind. I have yet to think of what her actual goal would be, any ideas? 

watch character creation in you tube..... "Dannphan" has good advices.

That would be Vivid Loss. This one.

She would likely not be a good fit, for several reasons. One being that her power is demonic, and if Magloria absorbed that, it would do to her, as it have to Vivid. Meaning that she'd be corrupted physically. Vivid looked like a completely normal pony before she made her pact, and got infused with demonic magic.

She's also by far, my most powerful character. She could crush Magloria with ease, but her contract prevents her from causing physical harm to others, unless given permission by her masters. And those two wouldn't, unless it was a dire circumstance. That also makes it hard for her to partake in Magloria's work I think, since she neither can, nor want, to cause others harm. She tries desperately to fit in to a world she have been apart from for thousands of years, and is having very little success with it.

They would have some common ground, as Vivid struggles with her mental, and emotional state. The more the world at large rejects her, the more she hates it, but she still keeps trying to fit in. Because she still believes in being a pony, more than a demon, even if she is more demon than mare at this point, technically. She would never join in on anything that'd include causing others harm, despite her instabilities sometimes causing her to smash a large area of a forest to bits. When she's not sad and thinking about her long dead foals.

I think she's a bad fit because of this. She cannot be taken in on a bad course, and she will not be defeated easily. Best one could hope for with her, is a standstill of some sort.

Anyway, to get back on track: Her plans wouldn't be against what Operata would like to join in on. He likes to make others suffer. If they deserve it. But he's flexible, and he'd enjoy the excuse *Well, she made me do it. I was afraid she'd kill me otherwise*.

She is really cool to say the least! Although I don't really think she would fit too much given her power set and her circumstances. Although Magloria would likely manipulate anyone into serving her whims as a pawn, she wouldn't have too much care for anyone otherwise. Ruthless, sure, but not heartless. Magloria isn't a killer but she sure isn't a saint. Magloria isn't it for the suffering itself. That's just secondary, she is hard pressed to show any enjoyment in what she does. She is stoic, cold, and generally callous but also vindictive in certain moments.

However she does enjoy her twisted sense of justice after all. She would see anyone attempting to change her ways as goodie two shoes wanting to 'reform' her or something along those lines. If you want her to be a true friend, it will take her years to come around and even then it'd be shaky at best. I imagine she attacks rather explosively, and suddenly.

  I could introduce a pair of temporary characters (one of which would be a kobold from This equestria) if you have no specific ideas, it could work as a tool to explore more of kobold lore in a way that isn't as depressing, and could work as character moment too as Sheska and Trox knew her counterpart in their world (and vice versa).

Potential chars from the future ain't so bad. We already have a few temporally displaced, some sealed for a long time, that's essentially with the mindset of the past, and some from other dimensions. Really, a traveler from the future wouldn't be so bad. Long as it's done right, and you sound like you have an idea about how to set it up. :) So no worried from me.

I wonder what prison you're talking about though? I can't remember us talking about a prison at any point. Could you refresh my memory on that?

Also, regarding *mysterious figure*, the one trailing Ruby and the gang, isn't from the future. Very much the present. :3 Heh. Haven't planned that whole thing out fully yet, but we'll see how it goes.

As for the Inn suggestion, I like it. A bit of a fun clash between world's variation of their kind. :) Looking forward to that.

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

 

@Starforce

Might be hard to manipulate one that's about 4000 years old, and have a contract that she literally cannot break. :) She made sure that it was extremely carefully written, so that she wouldn't have any loopholes.

As for attempts to reform her by Operata, he'll just mention his own deal, that kept him from incarceration, but if she's not interested, he'll shrug it, and tag along, to see what'll happen. He'd find her to be a fascinating study, with a currently unwritten path ahead, as she could swing many ways. And if she then picked a bit of a harsher path, then he'd prefer to be on the good side of somepony really strong, rather than be a popsicle. If they'd get friendly? Hard to tell. Long as she doesn't kill his cats, there's always a chance.

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

 

@Kujamih

Okay, trying another path for the shark picture then. Holdup.

Is this better?Q5PZiEX.thumb.jpg.167e3160bea59d2a8dde0c4694fe37eb.jpg

As for unfinished stories, there's a fair bit, aye. A fair bit involving my demonic mare up there, as players came in, started to get well acquainted with her, and then just vanished. Which in the story, is making her feel worse every time, as she tries to connect to others, but then ends up left behind and betrayed. Which really isn't helping her mental state sometimes. :)

By future I mean the same alternate world where Sheska, Trox and Solar are from, since it's alternate dystopian future (even if technically it's alternate present since it takes place at the same time in relation to the worlds' own timelines) :) no new concepts, just hints of new characters.

The prison, or well, part of a prison that Sheska and Trox arrived in, the one in the cave(s) in/under Onache's place.

Tell you what, since this is going to be our own thing would you want to make it in a 1x1 RP? I think that would be interesting to just have it between us and that opens the door to more wide ranging effects that would effect the players here, but in our own RP it wouldn't. Perhaps you could even bring in some canon characters for Magloria to face, she would *love* to tarnish them.

She was made in and for this thread, yes. She cannot destroy the universe though, nor wants it. That's why she were so careful in ensuring her contract were as tightly written as it were, as it is literally impossible for her to break it, and she wanted to make sure she couldn't accidentally hurt someone. She have her mood swings, but she still wants desperately to be part of this world again, despite how it pushes her back sometimes.

If you want a pop at that, you can try, but even if she can't hurt, she is allowed to detain. If you are deemed a threat, she will retaliate. She may make for a friend that understand issues though, if he have those. :) Up to you. And if it is, we need to sort a setting.

As for the dream powers, her dreams is solely of her life before she sold her soul. The door to her room have warning signs, to advise Luna and her chosen to stay away from it, as there is a strange, otherworldly energy emanating from it. Had that covered some years back, when there were a stint in the dream realm. Which ended up also taking an entity out, that had been trapped there for over a thousand years. Forgot about him actually.

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

 

@Starforce

I mean, we could, but I'm saying this straight off the bat: I won't be dragging in cannon chars if I can help it. As I have written previously, I don't like using those directly, as I don't want to mess up the character, and I don't watch the show. Hence I cannot in good faith, say that I could do them justice. So that's a limitation to consider, if you want to continue this.

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

 

@Catpone Cerberus

I forgot what they came about in, were a prison actually. Whoops. xD Fair enough then. And your idea of hints from the other world is fine by me. Feel free to roll with it.

 Oh! I have a few undead-related characters too i've written about! (Even if i'm not much of a zombie fan) That could likely fit into your setting too! Like a pretty chill butcher that ran a business for the more predatory species all above-bar legality before he went "mysteriously missing" one day and turned up zombified and none the more aggressive for it. Or a sort of anti-Fluttershy of Red Thread, a shy, pale necromancer who takes care of all the little critters who met unfair ends.

They're some pretty weird creatures, and logic ain't their thing.

Well, more like... a sort of logic. Interpretation. 

 No one being is ever just one thing. People grow & change and even the same situation or confrontation can be different if the experience was different. Life is fluid with growth as should most Concepts and things.

Like, your village being attacked & burned down could be both a character backstory for someone being withdrawn & shy... or being combative & courageously choosing the path of a warrior.

Playing with expectations is good fun for writing!

That is interesting. For Magloria's motives, as she was basically belittled for being a zorse (hybrid of a unicorn and Zebra), she sees Unicorns as stuck up and self absorbed, and has a special hatred for alicorns. She wants to tear everyone else down, if she can't have what they have. Magloria is insanely jealous of their success and would enjoy bringing down the most talented and able of Unicorns to expand her collection with. Unlike a lot of villains she has no real power or world take over scheme, she just wants to tear everyone down - but she doesn't realize in doing so, she would still be who she is. An imperfect hybrid.

Enticing her wouldn't work. She isn't out to stop baddies, she is out to stop the 'good one who act and think they know everything'. 

As for her magic, she can absorb spells and likely has a lot of spells in her array but mainly focuses on ice and water manipulation as well as transforming those into crystals, and weaponry. I am not sure how she got this magic, any ideas? 

and yeh! Right there, I can think of alot of ways to take that personality trait, and explore it in RP!

 Play with your oc's expectations and present to her a character that looks & acts like all the world someone she would feel she needs to combat, but have it turn out they're not as capable as she expects. Like how Celestia has been softened over the show's run to be less omnipotent, with her own flaws or trials she can't prophesize her way out of. Or especially Twilight, who's world lauded for being gifted & capable... yet her friends know her as barely functional under her stress, nerves and dorky flaws. Like... let's set up an Episode for Magloria to teach her that everybeing's a little imperfect!~

 Like, I can see the humorous situation of Blitz's confident character Alonsus (...? Forgive me if I get the name wrong. I just kind of like the big, fashionable oaf!) putting off brags to her about being all magical & important, she setting up a rivalry and He not being able to let the facade rest because he's afraid of upsetting her even more with the truth. Sitcom shenanigans!

Alternatively, I did make a character in the vein of an Alicorn by genetics alone. Where he looks the part of an Alicorn, but the horn is non-functioning and he's got the egotistical personality because everyone has always treated him like he ought be as powerful as any "princess." Twilight Twinkle is a DeadRinger for miss Sparkle and he's accidentally lived in the shadow she didn't know she was casting.

 

 

 ... also, as a fan of Ice Powers, I balk at just categorizing them under "Water" spells.

 Have been wanting to use my Draconequus more in RP lately too! I've got to try and be more intentional, if anybrony has any tips?

Well, Harrowmark have been closed off, and hard to exit for centuries, but it's fairly simple enough to enter, long as you can get past the undead sea monsters. but they aren't everywhere either, and now the country is about to open up a little more, once again.

The undead of Harrowmark aren't all shambling, wanting to hurt others. Some have gotten to such a stage, but others have their own societies in the marshes, and hidden places, away from the main cities. In many various forms, from risen, to geist, to amalgamation, poltergeists, and so on.

Maybe the butcher would fit well there, but Red Thread would fit in more with the Macabre Clan of Equestria. Old family of mediums, who tend to the departed, who cannot move o, for various reasons. Sorrow is but a single member, but there's many around the country, doing their part. Necromancy is not per se frowned upon by them. Only if used wrongly, to try and desecrate the dead for personal gain. Attempting to help animals who did not get a chance, by offering them some life after death, would be something they'd welcome, and invite her to join them, and partake in tutelage of generations, upon generations of professionals, dealing with death magic in many, various forms.

Just poke me when everything's ready for me to pop in.

As for how he'd have known of her, Operata is technically working for a consortium of sorts, where he helps deal with troublemakers, and in exchange, they help keep him out of prison. They probably heard some rumors about this area, and some disappearances, and sent him to investigate.

@Starforce

Dunno. Right after she beat him, I suppose? Getting the fighting over with.

Operata fights via music, empowering his cats. usually they do well in attacking and protecting him, but if you get them say, stuck to a wall, and then beat the tar out of him, he won't be able to react on it quick enough. Just again, please no cat murder.

Also, she could just grab them both, and tell him to surrender instantly, or she'd make herself a new pair of mittens. He'd like her way less, but he'd surrender. His cats are his everything.
