Forgotten in a diseased town (Survival) (Horror) (Slightly advanced)


Recommended Posts

The industrial revolution… (Only 50 years since the show timeline) New cities, towns and settlements have spurred; new technology has been presented to the world of Equestria. However, with these new times, new dangers appear to the world.

Recently, the entrovoric plague has proved a threat, with papers warning those at risk, quarantines and mass hysteria. Equestria was nearly thrown into disaster but with a huge amount of luck, it was eradicated within 5 years, almost too good to be true. Life returned to normal just as soon as it had spun out of control; but no one was out of the woods yet.

Only 2 years later a new strand of the plague threatens the utopia again. In NewStart, a fairly large farming town (one of the few that is free of factories) an evolved plague has struck. No one knows how it’s appeared once again; but one this is for sure, the Equestrian government isn’t going to take chances this time. Before a hoof is raised, the town is put into quarantine. The government is doing its best to pretend that it has disappeared; even faking that it still is sending out supplies. Anyone trying to escape is either destroyed by the land mines or killed off with toxic gasses. And they’re doing a good job, because no one knows the chaos in NewStart.

No one drops off supplies, not even the government; and NewStart is left on its own. Crime and unspeakable violence has erupted in the town, entire districts being destroyed by criminals, or ponies that have gone insane. Furthermore, the plague has transformed into something so evil, it feels as if its witchcraft…



Pony Desease Control Report 10F-2: Entrovoric plague (mutated strand)

The Entrovoric Plague is a powerful strand of the first plague that struck recently in Equestria. Much like the first plague, the Entrovoric plague is a bacterium caused plague that spreads through water, infected surfaces, bodily fluids and carriers of the plague. The new mutated strand kills similarly to the first plague: by consuming a pony’s innards.  There are a few extra stages to the plague (see below).

·       Stage 1: The infected pony will cough and vomit, internal organs weaken to the infection, high fevers persist, and the pony has a 10% chance of their immune system fighting the plague off. In many cases the infection will cause the pony to laugh lightly as if it is being tickled.

·       Stage 2: The disease will attack the pony’s brain; soon the pony will begin to act violent and only wish to harm others (much like how a dog’s or wolf’s in a mental state of having rabies). This stage can last up to 2 days.

·       Stage 3: The plague will soon kill the pony. (usually after 4 days since it was infected). Due to the entire body being consumed, there will only be a shell of the pony left.

Immune system boosting potions work very well in protecting a pony from the plague to an extent. 


Halloween time again, and that means plenty of new horror or Halloween themed RP’s. While this new RP I want to host is more of a survival/adventure RP, I hope to throw a few horror elements. Let’s not waste any time. I’ll try to be brief
Let’s start with the rules
-This obviously isn’t an RP that’s supposed to be lighthearted, keep this in mind when submitting characters and/or posting
-No maximum gore, no explicit content. The rules of the forums will be strictly enforced
-There can be love and whatnot, but just as mentioned above, this must be kept clean and free of explicit content
-I expect members of the RP to keep updated but also give others a chance to post.
     -Please post at least once every 2 days
     -Please do not post more than 3 times a day (1 post a day would be best)
     - Unless you give notice, anyone who is absent for too long will be dropped from the RP
-No alicorns. The RP would be ideal with only pony OC’s (ground ponies, unicorns and pegasi)
-No Mary Sues. Everyone has mistakes and weaknesses. Don’t submit some 1000 year old guard of the princesses who can control space and time. Too much power is boring. 
-Are there guns? Yes, but they are VERY scarce and most are muskets, revolvers and non-automatic weapons.
-This isn’t a terribly advanced RP (no combat systems). However, we will have inventories (see below)
- I will control most NPC’s and threats, however I will not godmod or overwhelm your characters

Yes. It would only be fair if players could find more supplies because they will need them. However, sometimes you will need to steal or kill to get them, they are scarce after awhile.


Make sure to invite other friends to this RP if you can.

I have a few questions:

Why does stage 2 last 2 days but stage 3 occurs after roughly 4?

How does the disease spread? It seems yo be from liquid contact, otherwise you could drink from a river, right?

Also, can't we just take antibiotics? Or is this a virus?


Other than that lemmie get my OC...
