Welcome to Ponyville's very own ToE OOC thread. What I intend to do is create an rpg group where we play adventures and campaigns within the Equestrian universe using the ToE ruleset made by the Riverhorse company.

Joining the Party
Right now this thread is being used to discuss if and how this will play out however don't let that stop you from making a character. If you want to join the game then you should at least have a fair idea on how ToE is played but don't worry if you don't. If you don't have your own copy of the book or are not sure how the rules are played, you can contact me on Discord and we can talk over a voice channel (Link below) if that doesn't strike your fancy then I can try to explain it by text here.

Character Sheet
Body: 1d
Mind: 1d
Charm: 1d
Cutie Mark Skill: (Make on up) 1d
Racial Skill: (Stout Heart, Telekinesis, or Flight) 1d
Quirks/Flaws: (Pick 2) (Something that your character is weak about for example Fear or Jealousy)
Place of origin:
Alignment: (Good, evil, neutral, etc)
Inventory: (Five items tops)

All of the normal rules of ToE will be applied to the campaigns as listed in the book however leveling up will be changed for the player's sake. First off when a character gains a new level, they will upgrade a single trait of their choice, upgrade their Cutie Mark Skill, and upgrade/learn 3 new skills. Skills can not be upgraded more than once per level. Also a character will only ever have to quirks to their character and will not gain new quirks when raising their level.

As for now this ToE thread does not exactly have a main campaign to it yet but I have written plenty of short adventures for players to get a feel for the game before I can write a main campaign to get things really started. I also am not sure if the game will be played on Ponyville.us or on Discord but as for now consider the game to be played here on this image board site unless we decide otherwise. If you have any questions about this thread or how the game is played, contact me in the Discord chat room or on this thread itself

We can still do that. I'm not entirely sure what I want to buy just yet. So far all I can think of is flint and maybe rope, but Epic's the sort to try and make do with little to nothing, given pizzas and cheeseburgers arn't exactly something to find in the forests.


… Uh is anyone gonna post in the RP?


(I'll ask Clarity if he wants to play.)

And Critical Hit's Sheet. I'll have to raise him up to level two so he can be on par with Epic and Rye.

Name: Critical Hit
Race: Unicorn
Gender: Male
Stamina: 12
Body: D4
Mind: D8
Charm: D6
Cutie Mark Skill: Gambit (D8)
Telekinesis (D8)
Chaos Magic (D4)
Open Lock (D4)
Quirks/Flaws: Short Fuse, Chaotic (Often likes to poke fun at those who believe in rules although he doesn't have a particular disdain towards them.)
Place of Origin: Baltimare
Occupation: Wandering Mage
History: Critical Hit was born to a unicorn father and a pegasus mother and his father's side in quite known for acting as mage's that local would consult for when facing problems of the magical orient to it. Critical had an affinity for magic when he was young but when he was placed in magic school, he did not really display any conventional magics. Instead he often played games with his fellow peers that often included gambling with dice or cards and he got his cutie mark based on gambling, repeating numbers, and plain random number generation. Crit's father was well convinced that his son's potential in magic was out there somewhere so when Crit came of age, he set out into the world on his own to study the strange and the arcane in hope to attune into his magics like his ancestors. Eventually as time went on, his true magic is starting to become apparent as he is naturally taking a liking to magic that is most similar to that of Discord's chaotic magic. For Crit this is unsurprising due to his cutiemark's association with Luck and Luck is chaotic in nature.
Alignment: Chaotic Good
Weather Cloak
Saddle Bags

LOL I just noticed that I mixed up Mind and Body. Just ignore the pic.


While I know we just started, I've got rough ideas for alternate universe ideas based on the episode "The Cutie Re-mark". Such as the Dawn Rebels on Nightmare Moon timeline, Epic as a hard-as-nails combat teacher on the Chrysalis timeline and… well, we can skip Sombra's timeline on account how Fo:E like it is.


While I do appreciate the ideas, I already have a set course for this adventure campaign that will be split into three parts.

Once we are done with this campaign, we will move on into another story arc that may pertain to some foreign land or some ancient evil. For this part, it is still up in the air.

I also am planning on creating story arcs for each character to follow through on as part of their main destiny.

My suggestions ar ejust some ideas for possible future.

I remember suggesting the idea to Clarity over Steam RPs but they never really solidified. They are basically how I imagined Epic Mount in alternate universes.

Epic didn't only got his cutie mark because of the same Sonic Rainboom that happened, but also saved his life in a fight with a manticore. So given the repurcussions of these alternate timeline,s chances are he is either dead or somewhere else.

Nightmare Moon timeline- Probably dead. That or Epic is the leader, or at least a powerful ally to the "Dawn Rebellion", a group who fight Nightmare Moon and seek powerful magic that can return Princess Celestia.
Chrysalis timeline- Epic survived his fight with the manticore when he was a foal, but ended up severely scarred, thus wears ful-body bandages. Zecora has him as combat specialist and teacher to her group.
Sombra timeline- Most likely dead.

These are just scraps of ideas, nothing to do with our RP. I even have alternate Epic Mounts for Equestria Girls, Power Ponies, anti-universe, Them's Fighting Herds and a fe wmore.
I like to be prepared.


So I've been talking with my current internet service and decided to drop them for this month so that means I may not be able to DM this game for a short time. However the reason I am dropping the service is because Comcast is entering my area and their service will be available in the earlier portion of next month. The Comcast service will be much cheaper and a shit ton faster so I'll be going with them.

What this means is that I may not be able to DM so this RP will be going into Hiatus for a short time, I predict at the max of 6 or so days. After the Hiatus I will be back on business as usual and we can continue on our way to Canterlot.

I. AM. BACK! To celebrate early, here's some cool weeb music to enjoy


Anyways to basically recap, the guy did come by today and installed xfinity so now I'm on a much faster service. I don't think the increased speed will affect our roleplaying experience all that much since this is only text and pictures.

On a much brighter note, I do have tomorrow off all day so expect to get right back in the swing of things like we have been doing before. Anyways the hiatus is officially over.


Crits level up sheet

Name: Critical Hit
Race: Unicorn
Gender: Male
Level: 3
Stamina: 7/14
Body: D6
Mind: D8
Charm: D6
Cutie Mark Skill: Gambit (D10)
Telekinesis (D10)
Chaos Magic (D6)
Open Lock (D6)

in comparison to… >>8164


I'd like to perk up my Charm. As for learning new skills, I don't have any in mind.


Okay, and do you just want to upgrade all of your already known skills like I did?

Your Current Skills list
Cutie Mark Skill: Defending (D8)
Stout Heart (D8)*
Identify(Monsters): (D4)
Martial Arts: (D4)

If you upgrade them all
Cutie Mark Skill: Defending (D10)
Stout Heart (D10)*
Identify(Monsters): (D6)
Martial Arts: (D6)


That be great! I'll go for the upgrade.


And my charm will be 1d8 right? Or can I only go for the upgrades?


Coolio, here is your level three character sheet.

Name: Epic Mount
Race: Earth Pony
Gender: Male
Level: 3
Stamina: 16/16
Body: D10
Mind: D6
Charm: D8
Cutie Mark Skill: Defending (D10)
Stout Heart (D10)*
Identify(Monsters): (D6)
Martial Arts: (D6)


Awesome, though my current Body is D8, does that become D10 also along with Charm being D8?


File: 1502214570043.png (306.86 KB, 700x900, 7:9, 1434058210747.png) ImgOps Google

Well right now it's d10 because you still have that power bangle on you. If you remove your bangle around your hoof then it will go back to it normal state of being 1d8.

I like to imagine the bangle resembles that like something Zecora would wear, it would fit your character perfectly.


Ah OK. I put +2 on those stats instead, makes the simple maths even simpler. But I thought the stats were already in effect.


Yeah that's fine, all of your equipped stuff is in effect right now. Anyways when you are ready, lets get back to the RP unless you have other questions.


I'm good. I'll ask Clarity if he wants to play.


Oh, he's offline.


We'll see how it goes.

I'm also hoping, in the long run we'll have RPs set in the alternate universes seen in the cartoon as well. Or maybe in meideval times, I tried an RPG like that once but it didn't go so well.


What do you mean like that? Set in other universes/canons.

Also can you link me this RPG or was this the Knights one?


Knights of Equestria, ages back.

And by alternate universes, like that time Starlight Glimmer messed with Twilights friend shistory and ended up with altenrate Equestrias.


Oh I see, like a what if situation then. I dunno, maybe but if I do anything like that it will be short and most likely a thread all on its own.

Here's where my character would stand in the Starlight universes

Sombra War: Crit would probably become a high rand=king member in the magic branch of the Equestrian military or he would become one of Celestia's Tacticians.

Chrysallis Takeover: Just end up being traveling hermit, much like what he is now. :)

Night Mare Moon: Maybe become Night Mare's personal court wizard and magic consultant.


File: 1502218331894.png (179.63 KB, 520x515, 104:103, Pirate Epic Mount.png) ImgOps Google

Heres how I imagine Epic Mount.

Sombra War- Epic did not survive his encounter with the manticore.

Chrysallis Takeover- A timeline where Epic barely survived his encounter with the manticore.
He bares disfiguring scars over most of his body and wears bandages and Zecora's old cloak. Zecora has him as combat tutor to her resistance. Nopony has seen what he truely looks like and no changeling willingly takes his form. Epic kills changelings.

Nightmare Moon timeline- A timeline where Epic defeated the manticore without the Rainboom.
Member, perhaps leader of the "Dawn Rebellion", a resistance group who aim to break Celestia's 1000 year banishment.

Possible Tirek timeline- Epic was never kidnapped a sa foal and lived a normal pony life.

Knights of Equestria- Set in Equestria's history. In Epic's previous life he was Squire, an earth pony who aspired to be a great and noble knight.

Power Ponies- Adam Mantium fell into a vat of mimetic polyalloy which bonded to his flesh, turning him into Iron Hoof, with near invulnerable endurance and reinforced strength.

And of course you know Epic from the Fallout: Equestria universe.


Alright then. I'm gonna head on off now and probably play some vidya. I'll see you and hopefully Clarity tomorrow, I have all day off tomorrow.

Later mate.


Okay. See you later!


Gonna visit my dentist today who works a few towns over so maybe gone for most of the day.

Gonna get my teeth scaled. While I do brush my teeth regularly, over the years some bad stuff has built up and my dentist will help be rid of it.

I'm back! Turns out the tartar build-up was mostly around my lower jaw, especially behind the teeth. Now it feels like I got new teeth chissled from the old ones.


We can play if you lot are up for it.


You're back? Good, I already made the starting post in the RP.


yeah, I've been home since yesturdays dinner time, as said on >>8772


Oh that was yesterday? I was more or less relaxing since at the time you guys are normally done.


Yeah, I went to the dentist yesturday and came home around dinner time.

My mouth still feels new to me.


Are we continuing today?

Nice! I can really kick butts with these skills!


Yep just note about the stare, sometimes you will have to pass a test in order to "stare" at someone. Sometimes it will be automatic

Test Example: If you try this out in combat or are perhaps trying to intimidate in a situation like chess.

Auto Success: If not in any sort of struggle or conflict. Success is based off of how good your stare stat is.

Stare > Enemy Mind = Success
Stare < Enemy Mind = Failure/Needs to be Tested.


I imagine I'll be mostly using it for interrogations or to prevent fights.

Time for an announcement.

The awaited Tails of Equestria character sheets are ready for use. Pre-existing and new players should email me at my G-docs in order to have their Character Sheets ready for use. The email should be composed something like "I need a character sheet."


But wait there's more. The RP now has its own place in my Discord Channel Hub which is linked here.


Side Notes

Just be sure to follow the rules and post your draft here in the OOC or possibly in our new Discord channel "tails_of_equestria"
