Searching [Planning, OC, OOC] The Town Friendship Forgot

Recommended Posts

(edited)

"The Town Friendship Forgot"
Currently accepting applications. Also accepting all ideas and input.

LINK TO THE RP:

This is a casual, fairly straight-forward RP where anyone can join. However, there will be occasional events that cover other genres such as action, adventure, fantasy, etc.
I am also accepting suggestions for the story, events, and anything you have to offer!

The story thus far:

Spoiler

Princess Twilight Sparkle has become the ruler of all of Equestria, taking residence in same castle that was previously occupied by former princesses Celestia and Luna.
However, there was one town that she never visited. A town that her friendship map never pointed to. A town that was often overlooked because it wasn't on most maps...

Welcome to the town of Friendshire! Ponies and creatures from far and wide would often stumble on this town if they didn't feel like they belonged anywhere else. If Ponyville just wasn't right for them, if Yakyakistan was too destructive, if Griffinstone felt too coldhearted... Whatever the reason, if you couldn't find a place you belong and decided to wonder in the great unknown, you just might find Friendshire.

It's not a small or poor town, by any means. It's big enough to rival Canterlot, and all the buildings and homes are well taken care of. Plenty of room for all!
However, it's up to all the citizens to pitch in and try to make this place worth living in.
Once upon a time, Friendshire was ruled by two mayors who worked in unison wonderfully. Then, one day, the two mayors stopped getting along. They separated to different ends of the town, and they barely do anything for the town anymore. Hardly anyone sees their faces, and they hardly ever do anything to govern the town.

But all hope is not lost!
There is a pony with a magical item. This item will eventually help reunite the two mayors and make the town perfect again.
However, this magical item will need the assistance of as many creatures as possible. It will lead everyone down a series of different quests, activities, and journeys. Those who wish to do so can help directly, and those who wish to do otherwise can show their support through other means.
Either way, this town needs as many occupants as it gets.
...So what do you say? Need a place to belong? It might not be perfect, but there will never be a dull moment in Friendshire.

 

 

Before you get started, please READ THE RULES:

Spoiler
  1. The tone of this RP is going to stay relatively close to the tone of the show. Try to avoid being extremely violent, adult language, etc. If you need confirmation to make sure your post is okay for this RP, don't be afraid to contact me!
  2. Please sign-up each of your major, individual OC's before RPing.
  3. You may play as multiple characters. You may even play as Canon Characters from the show, but please limit them to minor cameo appearances. They are NOT allowed to be a deus-ex-machina that makes the town better over night.
  4. No god-modding. Don't control other character's actions without the express permission of the other user.
  5. Ask my permission before playing as NPC's (generic/background characters that exist only to push the story along). I'll be doing that job for the most part. If you want to do the same, check with me first.
  6. There will be major story arcs and events, so please try to keep up with those.
  7. Participation in these stories/events is not required by ALL the roleplayers, only by some. If you do not wish to take part in some of the upcoming stories or events, please have an in-story reason ready for your character(s). If you prefer, they can be doing other things within the town or supporting the participants of the events/stories in other ways.
  8. Don't start any major story arcs or events without my permission. I prefer to focus on one thing at a time, and I don't want to multitask many stories at once. It's easier for everyone this way.
  9. If you are going to be away from the RP for long amounts of time, please set up an in-story reason why we won't be seeing much of your character. Daily participation is not required, but I'd prefer to avoid slowing/stalling any major stories/events.
  10. If you are going to be away from the RP for any extended amount of time, please have an in-story reason set up explaining why we might not see your character(s) very often. Likewise, please don't take part in any major stories or events unless you are capable of being involved regularly/daily.
  11. You may permanently step away from this RP at any time, but I'd prefer if you set up a farewell/departing scene for your character(s) in the RP first. (OPTIONAL)
  12. Please be respectful of everyone.
  13. If you are uncertain about anything or have any questions, PLEASE CONTACT ME! I am available here and in DM's.
  14. Obey the rules.
  15. Have fun!

This is NOT a ponies-only RP! You are free to RP as any kind of creature you want. If you want to RP as a human, just ask first, and maybe we can work something out. The story is set in Equestria, but nothing is off the table just yet.

Besides any main OCs I have, I will also be playing as random NPC characters whenever necessary to help the story along. If you want to do the same, please ask and verify it with me before doing so.

Please note that once you get set up in the town, it's up to you and your character to be self-sufficient. Being casual with other RP's is the main point, but you're in control of what your character does daily and how they live.

Participants/OC's:

Spoiler

If you wish to join this RP, please fill out the following form for all your major roles/OC's:

  • GENDER:
  • SPECIES:
  • OCCUPATION OR DESIRED JOB:
  • ABILITIES/TALENTS:

  • ANY OTHER IMPORTANT/RELEVANT INFORMATION:
  • DESCRIPTION AND/OR REF IMAGE:

I AM WILLING TO LET PEOPLE RP AS CANON CHARACTERS, INCLUDING ANYONE FROM THE MANE 6 AND THEIR FRIENDS. HOWEVER, IT WILL BE MOSTLY LIMITED TO A CAMEO ROLE ONLY, AND THEY WILL NOT BE ALLOWED TO INSTANTLY FIX ALL OF THE TOWN'S PROBLEMS.

Spoiler

Twilight Sparkle:
Spike:
Pinkie Pie:

This RP will have something for everyone. Here is a list of events/stories planned so far:

  • Boulder Dash's story
  • Raze's event
  • Character-based events (I might be willing to make events based around your specific OC, if you want!)
  • ???
  • ???
  • ???

I am STILL ACCEPTING suggestions on events and activities. It's my desire to make this RP as appealing to as many people as possible, therefore I really want to TRY and cover everything from action and scifi to slice of life, and everything in between. There might be some things that can't be done, but I can still try to fit it in. So feel free to ask questions and make suggestions.
Is there something you are looking for? Have any story ideas you'd like to explore but didn't know how to turn it into an RP? Maybe we can work something out. I look forward to RPing with you. :)

@Samurai Equine

Oo! I like this idea. I'd definently want to join.

I like the supernatural tidbit. 

I feel like Fable (the OC I wanna use) would be useful for that, since she comes from a family of Earth Ponies who either have mystical powers or have something related to that. (Fable's sister Mystique is a fortune teller, and their mother can sense evil and good auras).

So... I feel like she would be useful in that section.

There's room for the entire mystic family! But if you only want to RP as one character, that's fine too. :mlp_yeehaa: Either way, I can definitely make that work for the RP!

Do you have any suggestions for events or for the name of the town? Puns are accepted.

How about "The Friend Zone"

(And I can rp as more than one character)

Hmm... Never heard of that before. I know about it in terms of dating, but not sure what it means as an event. But if it's something anyone can take part it, then I'd be happy to add it to the list. :rarity: Is it like The Twilight Zone?

Friend Zone! I'll keep that in mind for Town name ideas. It'll be the first on the list. :fluttershy:

This looks really interesting. This is something that I would love to participate in.

I like the idea of it being known as "Friend Zone." Starlight's village was named "Our Town." So, a town named friend zone works just as well. Plus, the village was separated into two and nobody in town barely sees each other. That sort of like being friend zoned in a way.

I do like the idea of a fighting tournament. Is it sort of like video game related, or actual fighting like in fighting anime?

That does sound fun, right?

And although the OC I want to use isn't athletic, she is pretty smart, and could probably hold her own based on observation and cleverness. 

In fact, I believe she and Dyanamo Pad would get along quite well.

I know I'd be playing as Dynamo for the RP. He's more of a gamer and not a fighter, but I have an idea for how he could fight. He could probably use spells like one would use in video games. Sort of like some of the magic spells from Kingdom Hearts. I remember in another RP, he has a NES Power Glove that was known as a Quest Controller. With it, he can use his magic to create any weapon from any video game like Keyblades, the Monodo from Xenoblade Chronicles and even the Mega Buster from Megaman. So, I know I'd try and bring that into the story if there was a fighting tournament. 

I know we worked on two RP's together, but I don't think I've done an RP with Fable. Although, I can agree that I think Dynamo and Fable would get along very well.

She's pretty quiet and mysterious though.

Think silent Kirin with Zecora vibe. She does talk, but not a lot. She shows her care through action instead of words, and nopony can ever really tell what she's thinking cuz she has such a straight face

It feels like an interesting dynamic. Dynamo with being being spontaneous and being a goofball, while Fable is quiet and mysterious.

I hope she doesn't mind if he is like that as he tries to be happy go lucky, while seeing the good in everyone. I was about to say was Fable a Kirin. However, I reread the post and I understood as I thought I confused myself. :ButtercupLaugh:

I like the premise, I'm interested~

Pastel would be good for this RP. She actually is a pretty good singer (in accordance to one of the events) and doesn't necessarily have a place to belong; she's weird. Might just stumble upon the place while off on one of her grand little adventures.

Well, that's two votes for "Friend Zone". I put Grishwood as a more normal-sounding alternative, but I do like the irony of naming it Friend Zone. :)

As for your question, it would definitely be like the tournaments you see in anime. However, I like the idea of having a video game-based event! Something where technology meets magic. I'll be sure to add that to the list!

Awesome! I do like the idea of character based events that revolve around the characters. Helps get to know each character, while also building upon friendships and character development. 

Plus, I could see Dynamo trying to head to a video game tournament, but he must have gotten lost. Finding a place that would be accepting and where you can belong. Since he went to a school that bullied him for being the last in class to get a cutie mark and because of not being able to use magic. Even though he is a unicorn and was born with a sort of birth defect with his unicorn horn.

Do you have any OCs you want to play as? If anyone wants to, I'm also allowing canon characters from the show, but on a limited basis.

Well if you need an antagonist for an arc I've had an idea brewing, a Pastel production~ I'd have to dm you because spoilers though.

A stage play would be great too! Like a ponified Romeo and Juliet or something similar

I might just make something fresh - the QuinchOC is something I have on a backburner because I have a different arc direction planned for him, I kinda gave up on playing Sweet Comfort since I can't pull off the insight/empathy she's focused around and Drakontipa would be far more of a liability than anything.

I'm thinking maybe one of those sharkguys from Klugetown? Should be a fun experiment.

@Samurai Equine The Friend Zone is certainly a funny name for the town, but I do have another suggestion. Since MLP is famous for its 'punny' town names like 'Fillydelphia' or 'Vanhoover', why not call the town 'Friendshire'. The name combines 'Friend', which is fitting for the town, and 'Shire' (A term for a division of land).

I love that! :squee: And like "Friend Zone", it works on an ironic level too. It sounds like "Friend share", which would imply sharing friendship, something that the town hasn't done in a while.

It's going on the list!

Are you interested in joining the RP?

Friendshire does sound like an interesting name, as well. It kind of reminds me of Goldshire from World of Warcraft.
