Planning Planning a RP, Looking for interested players/story planners

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to start a role play with the intent of making a mini campaign out of it. The story would start out as a basic slice of life and would evolve from there. I'm hoping to find at max 6 to 7 dedicated role players who can properly role play and around 2 story planners to help guide the plot. The planners may also be players so long as they can keep OOC planning separate from their characters in game.

 

The basic overlay would start in manehatten, about mid-day around a local downtown tavern named "The Tipsy Stallion", players may feel free to introduce their characters however they want, so long as they keep in within reason.

 

As far as rules go....

Please no alicorn characters

Have some kind of back story for your character accessible for story planners

Be able to post AT LEAST once a day 

please make posts a reasonable length, simple 1 line responses don't promote a lot of play

please try to keep it at or under pg-13, if it wouldn't be appropriate in the show, then don't try it.

 

If you are interested in either/both of these roles, please comment below with your OC bio link and your RP experience if your interested in helping with story planning.

 

Players:                                      Story planners:

1. Lightning                                1. Lightning

2. Miss Reaper                           2. Miss Reaper

3. Moon Dancer.                         3.

4. Ed Lyons                                4.

5. Lil' Lovebug

6. Alex Van Gamer

7. ~Phoenix~

Hiya! I'd be interested in the roles of both player and planner. I have about 6 years RP experience, and as much experience developing characters and stories. I have a number of OCs, but I'd like to nominate Lunar Symphony as a candidate:

 

 

KrInS2s.png

 

 

She's an albino, blind batpony that navigates through the use of echolocation and has an appreciation for music. I keep putting off making a page for her, but her working backstory is that she once lived with a small, secluded colony of batponies before deciding that she wanted to explore more of the world as soon as she came of age. She was born a batpony, the magic that induced the change a part of her.

 

She lives near the outskirts of Ponyville, but is known for traveling when she gets restless staying in one place for so long. Far as personality goes, she's the no-nonsense sort, and especially won't tolerate any sort of pity for her or her handicap; she insists on being treated like any normal pony, since after all, she's been doing just fine on her own.

 

If that's not enough info, you can look at the characters Galatea and Ariel in my signature - they're my most developed characters thus far.

Sounds good to me! As long as you can make a small list of key events in your OC's life then she should work out just fine  :twi:

Key events in Lunar's life, got it! :D

 

  • Born in small batpony colony. It was a close, tight-knit community secluded from the outside world.
  • Lost sight shortly after birth. Complications with albinism and lack of protective pigments in the eyes tends to lead to things like this.
  • Discovered echolocation at a young age. Helpless up to that point, the batpony filly earned her cutie mark when she learned how to use echolocation to navigate (inspired by an old folk tune within the colony).
  • Left the colony soon as she came of age. She wanted to explore more of the world; ironically, her exact words were "I want to see more of the world."
  • Settled in a cave near the outskirts of Ponyville. An odd sleep schedule - she has no sense of night or day - means she was seen at odd times of the day enjoying music or having her mane colored (the streaks are dyed, to give color to something otherwise "colorless").
  • Embarked from her makeshift home again as she grew restless staying in one place. In the scope of this RP, this would likely lead her to Manehattan for the time being.

And, ah, that's about the general gist of things! :squee:

@@Lightning Roller,

 

Id like to join this. You know what my OC looks like. He goes by the name Crystal Cog or Obsidian Hook, he doesn't really care. 

 

(Backstory)

 

He is blunt, gruff, somewhat dark and mysterious, straight to the point and otherwise emotionless, but at other times he can be a mad scientist who laughs manically and has no control over himself, and who thinks everything is funny. He also likes the darkness, cold winter days and rainy days in favor of the opposite. When he was a foal, he was often called weird and insulted alot, but by the time he grew of age, he absorbed all he could about magic and took revenge on his foalhood enemies, by pinning them to the ground with his gravity manipulation and making them go through their worst nightmares with his spells, after that, he forced them to admit to everything they did to him, and apologize, then they were forgiven.

 

He isn't good, nor is he evil. He simply acts in terms of Survival, personal safety, personal gain, and sometimes the safety of others who he thinks are worthy. He wants to lead, have power, and is full of passion. He is independent and efficient, but can be quick to anger, if you get him mad, your immediately in his bad books. He sometimes wears a black cloak to conceal himself. He also has a habit of collecting rocks and crystals, and tampering with inventions, magic, and spells to make himself better than he is, or to appear so. But, he will never hurt or harm anypony without good reason. He envies all those who have good friends, as he has been lied to and betrayed in the past quite a bit, it takes him a long time to trust somepony.

 

He can also be somewhat obsessive about building a time machine to fix the past, but somewhere underneath all of this he seeks for love and friendship. He can have moments where he is happy and a good sport though.

My OC is my profile picture pictured. His name is Alexi Quill. He's an earth pony born and raised in Maenhattan, and knows the city like the back of his hoof. He is sociable and friendly but is unfamiliar with rural areas, and is a bit intimidated by them. His job is a columnist for the paper, but is often frustrated that his works have become boring and uninspired.

Mane events in his life:

Moves out early to focus on his studies.

Publishes book on the story of the two sisters to pay for rent.

Graduated school with exceptionally high grades in history, but due to lack of careers in the subject, takes a job at the local paper, as he's passionate about writing.

After moons of intermittent columns, he finally gets a daily spot in the main paper of Manehattan.

Finally gathers enough money to buy a nice apartment in the heart of the city.

Loses creative spark that made his column famous.

I'm sorry, but i'm gonna say no on this one. Your OC's backstory doesn't exactly fit the bill.

Hmmm. I've never tried an RP in Manehatten. Could be interesting. I don't really know how well I'd do as a planner, so I'd like to play as Satin Wing, if you'll have me.

Hey there! I was wondering if I could possibly join with my OC Comet Dancer.

 

He's mostly centered around living in Ponyville as a professional dancer, but he was born in Manehattan and grew up on some of the classic plays and performances of the time. He just had to move after an issue with some bullies from school. He hasn't been back there in years! So I think Comet would probably travel there for a few weeks vacation and catch up on some of the things he's missed.

He seems like he would fit in quite well, I'll add you to the list!  ^_^

Update:

As soon as I can get another story planner on the list i'll get the ball rolling on the RP thread and have everything set up. Thank you to everyone for joining in on this and I hope that you enjoy yourselves while your here!

The current player list is subject to change, If you are interested in joining in, feel free to submit your character for review! :ooh:  I'm also still looking for fellow story planners to make this one interesting and keep it fresh.

Hey, I just wanted to make a quick apology about the Roleplay. I should have made mention to it last week, but I was fairly busy celebrating my birthday from Wednesday through Saturday. I was hoping I could find time to post a reply when I had any long breaks, but that never happened.

I'm back home now though, so I'll try to get a response up either tonight or tomorrow.

Thank you for the update! I was beginning to think that the RP was about to go dead. I look forward to seeing you back online! :P
