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

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.

Neat this will work. Anyways I did see your post in the main RP and it's cool. We'll just start back up on Tuesday or something.

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"

It's a long story but basically I became "friends" with someone who had almost all of /rp/ under his thumb at the time. He was the sort of person who would enjoy an RP where his pony had all the attention such as an RP where he being interviewed. I should know, he asked me to make such an interview RP. There were posts on that RP-thread asking "whats the point of this?" and I felt embarrased to have been part of it.

For his main RP series that Epic took part in he was alright with EpicShy, but eventually Fluttershy left Epic for one of her friends. She broke up with Epic the same with a child grows out of a toy. Fluttershy's RPer didn't even consult it with me much. If she wanted to RP Fluttershy to "move on" while I would of been upset I would of complied and make more of a reasonable story around it. But Fluttershy just dumps Epic like rubbish and moved on in a few posts later.
Because of how much drama the RP had (I think later on there was a war or some like) I had to go along which had Epic ended up paranoid and crazed to the point I just didn't recognise Epic anymore.
I asked to leave the RP in which the guy accused me of it being about how Fluttershy left Epic and that how Epic's conditions was how I RPd not him, he got all the RPers to back him up as well. He had them under his hoof which along with being egotistical was not a pleasent sort of person to be around.
While I do agree with him to a degree that it's my fault how Epic ended up, there was time I tried to "be a friend" to him and let him have his way in his RP which to someone with such a huge ego made it a miserable ride for me. (He ended up this big hero of Equestria where he got to bang his fiancé Pinkie Pie before a great conflict or something.)

While I recognise him as a brony, he was the first example of a "fellow fan who don't get along with" sort of thing. As in just because we both liked MLP:FiM and RPing doesn't mean we get along. I tried to be nice to him because I figured "it's the brony thing to do". (This was back when Ponychan preached Love and Tolerance a lot.)

After a few long years I tried returning to /rp/ with the assured belief this guy moved on, but there were a few there asking why I left and it just felt awkward. There were still major-popular RPs going along with enough players to have communities over which I just struggled joining and my own RPs just didn't start out well to the point I just concentrated my interests on /oat/.

You as a gamemaster of this RP as well as our past Fallout Equestria RPs, I know I can be a bit "difficult" to RP with. Thats because I want to keep Epic in character. Yes I would like him to be his own person in the RPs than just a copy of the OC I written down but I don't want him to end up as somepony I don't recognise or want to play as anymore.

The other reason why I am reluctant to move this on Ponychan /rp/ is that I like it just being the three of us. You're both my friends and play well with you both. I know it can be slow at times with our own IRL business but if we had too many players then I'd be concerned I'd be lost in the process of the RP after a night sleep or something and find 50 posts have already passed by and I have to catch up.
If we had 5 or 7 players in total then sure, I can keep up with that. But if we end up with a dozen or more then not only would you have to keep up with what everyone is doing but I don't want any of us to be lost in the RP.
But I know more players and progress is good for RPs so I don't want my worries to hold back your decisions.

One particular scene I remember in this RP was after this war, he went to the hospital where all the casualties of war were recovering. He put on a concert where due to being son of a rock god*, his unicorn-bard powers were amplified that his concert miraculously healed everypony in the hospital by his music.
The music also "healed" Epic's sanity which he brought up when I chose to left, but I still wanted off.

*I kid you not, I vaguely remember a scene when he discovered he was the son of the pony equivilent of a celestial god-pony that looked like his favourate musician Lemmy Kilmister.

I'm aware I have somewhat of an ego how I RP Epic at times, but I would not go as far as to have half of all of /rp/ to cater to my personal whims.


Alright I hope everyone had a great Christmas this year and I'm sure you'll be happy to know that the RP is going to continue. Side note I also have the day off tomorrow so we should be able to get into some good RP then. Anyways post what vidya/gifts you got this year.

Serious Sam BFE
Serious Sam 2
Left for dead 2
Penumbra Series
Viscera Clean Up
Table Top Simulator
Darkest Dungeon
Dark Souls 3

I'll respond on another post.


PG1: Interview RP's? Sounds kinda lame but more importantly this guy sounded kind of full of himself and that could be a problem, especially if he was a DM at the time then he is breaking an important DM code. The story is about the players, not the DM.

PG2: Well I'm sorry the person didn't want to play the EpicShy ship but unfortunately you can't force people to do things. However I think it is totally okay to leave the RP, the point of RP is to have fun and if you're not having fun then it's a good idea to go. If the DM wanted you to stay though he could've promised to have that side conflict later on resolved better and make an arc where Epic gets stronger/wiser from the break up. Biggest point is that you shouldn't have to stay.

PG3: Every fandom has its own toxicity and you don't have to be nice to people to be a brony. FFS look at me.

PG4: Eh I don't have much to comment. See PG 2

PG4: Yeah I do sometimes get frustrated at times but I just remind myself to be a more flexible DM and allow more character decisions. I'm still learning more and more as we go on but don't feel afraid to hold yourself back on my part.

PG5: I do see your point here, I remember back when we had at least 8 people on the same RP in the FoE and I was constantly stressed out. Rushing posts before people go on a tangent or make multiple attack turns was difficult. I mostly wanted to move to the Ponychan because I was hoping to get an extra player but not 7. Seeing though our own lack of time, I would think it is best to stay here.

PG6: Oh so he didn't want to do that arc then. See PG 2

PG7/8: Rock Lobster! Anyways he just played a Mary Sue... but a lot of RP characters are Mary Sue's so I won't hold much against him. As for your concerns, I do want to expand Epic's Character which is why I'm putting in the knights arc into the RP. I also plan to do a few more arcs for each character to grow them and Epic even more however we will see more of that in the second Campaign. For now though focus on the Knights arc (Or have Epic go rogue or something I dunno.) And figure out a way to Stratus City.

Clarity got me "Superdimension Neptune VS Sega Hard Girls" and my brother got me "Amazing Frog?".

I haven't decided if I should make a Let's Play of SNvSHG or not given I found out my oldest brother (who had been drunk throughout Christmas Eve and Day) will be staying a few weeks now and I feel reluctant to revamp my YouTube channel which is what I plan for January.

It's not that I wanted to force EpicShy because Fluttershy was played by another player. What I didn't like was that she had Fluttershy dumped Epic and moved on as quick as disposing the wrapper of a chocolate bar. I can't recall who played as her but they could of messaged me about it before hand we could of discussed how the two could break up. But I didn't get any heads up on it.
If Fluttershy was in any sort of close and eprsonal relationship that she wanted to leave, would it be in her character to do so harsh and abruptly? While I would of been upset for Epic to break up with Fluttershy, I would of respected that players decisions and work around it. It's just she RPd Fluttershy was getting along well with Epic for awhile, then I think it was Rainbow Dash who started to come out to her and it was a rather abrupt break-up just so Dashy can happen a few posts later.

I don't entirely blame the DM and the Fluttershy player for why I left (if anything I mostly blame the DM). I chose to put up with it longer than I should so I blame myself for putting myself through that.

I sometimes miss the Fo:E days. The wastelands, the heroics, the underground places we visited etc. I know our current RP is somewhat like that but not the same.
And I like RPing with Clarity

I might take up on being a Knight of Equestria. Heres my article on it if you want to brush up on it.


Thanks for the link, this basically had everything I had figured they would be in modern times. A sort of hidden group of heroes who serve Equestria, a nice fit for Epic Mount though I'm sure Critical wouldn't fit into this well. Summer Rye... I'm not sure, we'll have to see.

Anyways we'll go ahead and stay here on the Ponyville, I'm sure the mods would miss us if we leave. ;)


They would, can't get along without us, we're tough survivors, a dying breed.

That reminds me, we should play sometime.

Normally I play with my brothers (which conveniantly I have three of) but me and my brothers haven't played in awhile.

When you played and finish the same maps over and over, feels stale.

I've had the Penumbra series for awhile but I've been too chicken to play them.


For those who do not have their current character sheets.

Name: Epic Mount
Race: Earth Pony

Level: 4
Stamina: 9/18

And this is Critical's upgrades to level 5

Healing Touch (1D4) 1/1


I forgotten how we upgrade.


No prob.

1st: Upgrade your Body, Mind, or Charm by 1 dice score.

2nd: Upgrade your Cutie Mark Skill by one dice score

3rd: Upgrade or learn 3 skills, limit one upgrade per skill.


I see.

So I could +1 my Mind, Defending increase by +1 and I can increase Martial Arts?
What does that make me?


So you look like this right now.

Name: Epic Mount
Race: Earth Pony
Gender: Male
Level: 5
Stamina: 9/20
Armor: 0
Body: D12
Mind: D8
Charm: D12
Cutie Mark Skill: Defending (D20)
Stout Heart (D10) 1/1
Identify(Monsters): (D8)
Martial Arts: (D10)
Stare (D4)

So now you need to upgrade or learn two more skills.


File: 1516301155915.png (64.01 KB, 500x500, 1:1, Epic Mount is happy.png) ImgOps Google

That looks good.


But you still need to upgrade/learn two more skills


Well, I can put one skill point into staring, but I do not know what new skills to learn.


Do you want to upgrade stout heart? It could be useful to add to you roll.


OK, I will.


Okay this is your new character sheet.

Name: Epic Mount
Race: Earth Pony
Gender: Male
Level: 5
Stamina: 9/20
Armor: 0
Body: D12
Mind: D8
Charm: D12
Cutie Mark Skill: Defending (D20)
Stout Heart (D12) 1/1
Identify(Monsters): (D8)
Martial Arts: (D10)
Stare (D6)




And now lastly, you all take on a new quirk to add to your character. You can either tell me what the quirk will be or let the dice find out for you.


A quirk? As in a new weakness? Don't I already have spiders and just being odd to worry about?


yep and now you get a new quirk for every 5 levels. Its called character progression ;)

But if you don't like it we can just scratch that off.


It's hard to think of brand new things to be afraid of or weakened by.

Fear of extreme heights comes to mind, but I can imagine Epic is the parkour sort anyway so dunno if it matters much.


That's okay we'll just forget about it. Also its time for me to go now.


OK. We play another time. Maybe Epic will develop  anew quirk later?

One of my original character ideas for fears was the fgear of extremely high falling due to a childhood trauma, but I can imagine Epic jumping around the place at times.
