Searching [OOC] Twisted Saddle

Recommended Posts

Okay, this is the OOC for Twisted Saddle.

 

RP : https://mlpforums.com/topic/153203-rp-twisted-saddle/

 

For those of you who weren't playing the Vidya in the golden era of Playstation, there used to be a vehicular combat game that was one of the first original titles for the system...

 

TWISTED METAL

 

This was a vehicular combat game set in a bleak reality.  A powerful man known only as 'Calypso' ran a no-holds-barred vehicle-battling tournament, where the winner would be granted ANY one wish, regardless of size, cost or reality-breaking requests.  

 

Granted, these wishes always came with a caveat; Monkey's Paw, indeed!

 

I want to run something like that here on the Forums; a Twisted Saddle tournament for the ages!

 

 

For this RP, Equestria doesn't look so hot - since a massive magical battle between the Alicorn Princesses and a resurrected Sombra destroyed much of Equestria and it's magic reserves, machinery is now used by practically every being on the planet.

 

It's a very dark time in Equestrian history... with Celestia and Luna BOTH vanished along with Sombra, Twilight Sparkle and Cadence have had to take up the slack... and they aren't doing so well.  Enter Calypso, a strangely charasmatic zebra who runs a 'contest', where the winner receives ANY wish they want - fully granted.  

 

Calypso tells Twilight Sparkle that the energy generated from the spirit of combat could be put right back into Equestria as magical energy... potentially bringing about a new era of Harmony once again.  At this point, it's all Twi can think of, and so she approves Calypso's request to put on the contest - and he has access to all of Equestria to stage the battles in.

 

 

I will want FIVE players for this, and I'd like them to be folks who can write more than a paragraph as a response - I get descriptive, and I don't want to be the only one writing long posts here.

 

Fights will be fair, but with plenty of surprises.  There will be one on one, bracket-style competitions, and occasional three and four player rounds, to be announced as they come up.  The damage being done will be magical damage; nopony will die from this, but bruised, broken and beat up?  Oh, yes... not to mention the wounded prides...

 

This will be a decidedly grimdark storyline, but there can be room for humor, drama and even romance, depending on how you folks spin it.  But above all, DON'T expect a happy ending... and be careful what you wish for.

 

Contestants... START YOUR ENGINES! 

 

APPLICATIONS FOR THIS ROLEPLAY MUST BE AS FOLLOWS:

 

 

Character Name:

 

Breed:

 

Gender:

 

Cutie Mark:

 

Reason For Competing:

 

Alignment: (Light, Dark or Neutral)

 

Specific Vehicle: (Google a picture to go with anything specific, otherwise, everyone will get a stock sedan to begin with)

 

If I Win, My Wish Will Be:

 

 

Add a picture if you have one; if not, that's okay.

 

As for the OTHER competitors... well, for those of you who HAVE played the Twisted Metal series, the vehicles will be familiar and the driver pairings should be a laugh riot!

 

NOTES:

 

I'll want at least ONE player to represent Twilight Sparkle in this tournament, as she would offer nearly anything to a pony who can win the contest and bring magic back to Equestria.

 

Your application MUST be an OC; the canon characters will have cameos as the story progresses, so be prepared to run into some familiar faces in some NOT so familiar situations!

 

Your vehicle can be anything on wheels, but it CANNOT be any of the already canon vehicles to the Twisted Metal series; I have plans for them.  Any weapons installed or 'special attacks' will be discussed after the RP starts, in the garage.

 

I'll be testing each applicant to get a feel for their writing style - unless I get REALLY desperate for players, then we'll see...

 

NO ALICORNS - NO GODMODDERS - NO OP/MARY SUES

@DwhitetheGamer, so ya wanna toss Copper into the mix?  No problem... but I expect you to show me what you've learned in your posts.

 

@Dapper Charmer, Hooligan seems like a blast - and I LOVE that wish!

 

, THE Batmobile?  Really?  Okay, I'll approve it - but it has to be the classic Adam West Batmobile!  Mind you, yeah - it looks goofy, but it DOES have nifty gadgets; good call!

I'm going with the maximum customizations of the Zentorno, complete with Bulletproof tires, a spoiler, and a turbo engine. Note that the turbo engine doesn't make it faster than Rainbow Dash's F-1 vehicle, but it still goes faster than 200 MPH.:)

Modifications to the vehicles are to be made at the contest - the engine and the spoiler is fine, but the tires would be almost impossible to find in Equestria; that'll be dealt with forthwith.
