I was wondering if there's still time for me to jump into this. I have been in quite the extensive hiatus from the forums due to some unavoidable life issues and now I'm eager to roleplay once more. In addition to that, I've also just finished a new OC and I hope to get a chance to debut and polish her up a bit here~

 

~~~

OC Name: Vivid Clover

Profile link: Clicky-clicky.

 

Past roleplays: "Everfree Adventure: Search for the Void Stone!"

[Like I mentioned, I have been away from the forums for quite a long time: about seven or eight months now. That one was the last one I remember participating in. I might have accumulated a considerable amount of rust and my writing skills may not be up to par yet. But I'll do my absolute best to keep up with this one if I end up getting accepted!]

 

Inventory: My character would be bringing along with her - aside from a bit of money, various clothing pieces and general makeup beauty gadgets - a black case containing a deck of playing cards and chips used in poker games. That would weigh to about two large bags or so.

 

Hobbies & Special Knowledge: Basically everything specified in her character bio: she's proficient in poker and general gambling games, she can tell with ease whether someone is telling the truth or not, and she also knows a good amount about neurology, how the brain functions and how that affects other people's personalities and such. Oh, and she's also very lucky, if that's any relevant. :P

~~~

 

I hope that's good enough. I'll understand if you think I'm not suitable for this RP, though.

@@Lume WMj,

 

Well I've given your character a look, and she's easily acceptable by my standards. You're accepted. So....since everyone is gathered at the mandatory dinner party, we can either pretend you've been there all along or you can have your opening post include everything from when you arrived. I'd appreciate it if you could read all of my posts starting from here:

 

https://mlpforums.co...15#entry4152248

 

That will be the post where your character arrived. Ideally, I would like you to read all of the posts starting from there since that will let you know everything that has happened around your character.

 

 

Thank you for applying.


Also if you have any questions feel free to ask.

Thanks a bunch for accepting me! c:

 

Hmm... I guess I'll just try to include everything from when they arrived in the carriage to their current setting in the dining room in my opening post. Just to clarify, though, the guests took the ride from the town to the Bloodwell manor after checking into the hotel, right? And also, if you don't mind me asking, how many of your NPC's are currently in play until now?

 

From what I could gather, Red Cask is the butler, Lapis and Gemma are the mansion's heirs/governors, Harmony and Tragedy are their daughters, and Mirror Image and Silver Heart are with the guests... Is this about it?

 

+EDIT+

Oh yeah, one more thing! ...Where should my character sit?  :squee:

@@Lume WMj,

 

Close. The guests took the carriage to the town and walked from the town square to the mansion. The group of OC's that arrived with you haven't checked into the hotel since you arrived late. The other OC's have been there most of the day and have checked in, though that really only consists of Mirror Image, Cherry Blossom, Aero Wind, and Shadowhide. Since this isn't really a spoiler, your OC and the others that arrived with her will find rooms assigned to you after the dinner party.

 

Red Cask is House Bloodwell's Steward, which makes him the highest ranked person in town, second only to Gemma and Lapis. Gemma and Lapis govern the town and the mansion.

 

Harmony and Tragedy are their adopted daughters (I'm sure the fact they were adopted is fairly obvious by now) and are the leaders of the theater troupe.

 

Mirror Image is technically a staff member of the resort, since she was hired to be entertainment, Cherry (Golbez's OC) is her assistant.

 

Silver Heart isn't actually in this RP at the moment, though I may add her if I a player or NPC gets hurt bad enough that a doctor is required.

 

All other NPC's will be re introduced since everyone who interacted with them has left the RP. So for now, the only NPCs that you would know are:

 

Gemma and Lapis (Both are present at the Dinner)

 

Harmony and Tragedy (Also both present at the Dinner)

 

Red Cask (Who is not present at the Dinner)

 

Mirror Image (Who is present at the Dinner)

 

EDIT: I hope that clears this up a bit

 

And you're welcome.

Alright, got it! Thanks again for clarifying things up~

 

I'll see if I can make my post later today. If not, I'll surely have it ready by tomorrow. Hope that's fine.

I wanna ask just a quick question about your OC Hed, so I can have Cherry respond appropritely.

You mentioned in Cursive's profile that he doesn't like extravertic ponies, what exactly does that mean?

 

I can only assume from the definition that he doesn't like ponies who like "other" ponies, which for me causes two problems:

1, It doesn't make a lick of sence

2. Cherry is VERY social with other ponies, she'll quite literally bend over backwards to make everypony her friend.

Extrovert (I didn't realize there wasn't an adjective form), as opposed to introvert, is a person open to the world, glad to look around and be seen, to know others' opinions and express their own. Cursive, as a definition of an introvert, naturally dislikes people who challenge his attitude by having the opposite one. Why wouldn't that make sense? I always assumed ponykind, much as us people, has a clear division into those highly-social and disliking company.

 

And, yeah, Cherry is the, quote "humorously hyperactive harlequin for some reason focused on himself". The situation is dripping with irony, since the geezer brought this fate onto himself.

 

 

 

+EDIT+ Oh yeah, one more thing! ...Where should my character sit? 

The table exists in several dimensions already and conversations are taking place all over it. As long as you don't sit yourself between an established adjacent pair, that will be fine. And even then, it shouldn't cause too much of a ripple.

This is just an update.

 

I*'m sorry I haven't been posting. First I was waiting for everyone to respond before I wrote my next post. However, I'm currently re-evaluating that policy. I think I'll try writing separate posts for each character. Or maybe I'll still do group posts but I'll respond faster instead of just waiting for everyone else to post.

 

And starting a few days ago, I've been having computer problems. I installed a new graphics card and I guess I messed something up since I get the infamous BSOD usually at least once an hour. I'm not sure why, but it only occured to me that I could write my post on my laptop.

 

Expect a post tonight or tomorrow morning.

Alas poor horatio, this dinner is killing the RP, (in my opinion) I am saying that from reading the whole RP there was more speed and variety of posts just we are all stuck in the dinner room but I may be impatient (i'm like that).

Just as an update, I'm writing my post now. I apologize for the delay. College has resumed and I'm apparently on red list. Which means they've placed an academic hold on my account. I can't sign up for new classes until this gets resolved and if it doesn't get resolved soon, I'm apparently kicked out of the school if I don't sign up before the registration period ends. Obviously, this takes priority over pretty much anything short of a family member dying.

I would have to say this scene is the fastest pace this RP has ever seen. Bloodlines is over a year old now I think and we barely covered a page a month on average. A few times there was about a month long gap in between posts. That said, if you are unsatisfied with conversing with your fellow guests and hosts, you could always ask to be excused and you will likely be escorted back to the town. OR maybe your character just has to go to the restroom. Just because this is a mandatory event for the guests doesn't mean that they can't try to take advantage of the situation.

@@SilverHeart,

 

with that I'll shut now, you do your IRL thing, maybe i'll think on your suggestion hmm, if I had two OC's maybe (i'm not too creative when it comes to writing)

@, @, @@Golbez, @@Hederik, @@Lume WMj, @@FortyTwo42, @@The Elusive Cinder,

 

Also, in addition to my last OOC post, I would like to state that in this RP you are given complete freedom in what you want to do. I feel that this might not be clear to all of the players.  An NPC invites you to go to an event? You can go or blow them off. You think that a character is evil and means you or some other character harm? You can help them, stop them, talk them out of it, tell someone else, or even try to kill them first. Your OC gets hit on by the Baker's wife? Flirt with her, try to seduce her (Keep it forum friendly-please), judge her, or even tell her husband. Everyone goes to see a play? Attend the play, sneak into the mansion while everyone is busy, break into someone's house, don't do anything.

 

You want to leave the town before the RP is over? Try to walk through the woods.

 

Just know that your actions will have consequences (both for your characters and for the general storyline). This RP, when Scribbler (The former Co-DM) and I came up with it, was meant to mirror table top RP's where the players can do anything and everything they want.

So at the risk of derailing my own OOC, I wanted to share this with someone because I find it far too amusing. I've probably watched it a few dozen times (it isn't that long) over the past few days.

 

Edit: Apparently it is quite loud. I usually have my volume pretty low so I didn't notice.

@Everybody

 

Sorry to be so quiet. I'm rather absorbed in writing my thesis. Anyhow, sitting quietly and avoiding attention doesn't warrant much active participation. But I'm always lurking around.

@@SilverHeart,

 

I'm in the process of making another OC's a crystal pony and I'd like to add her to this when she is done, you can have a look at her so far but there is still much for me to write i'm just asking if me playing two is ok?

You can play two but I'm going to have to think of a way to introduce your character (If I accept him/her). I gave your IC sheet a look but I'll wait until you finish it to give you a decision.
