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

This one looks really nice and it also has its stats organized properly.

I don't know when I'm gonna release the official roleplaying thread but I think for now the date will be the day after tomorrow.


Alrighty. Let's see how it goes.

Hello again Critical! Was wondering when you'd be around again.

I too made a ToE sheet, but may need some tweaking.


File: 1498998582933.png (95.67 KB, 591x599, 591:599, Epic Mount.png) ImgOps Google

Everything looks fine except for your Body, Mind, and Charm. The rules in the ToE book states that earth ponies get a boost to their body trait so upon character generation your stats should look like…

Body: 1d8
Mind: 1d4
Charm: 1d6


Body: 1d6
Mind: 1d6
Charm: 1d6

Other than that you should be fine, just keep all of your talents, quirks, and other details from this post since you are starting at level 1.

The Roleplay thread is now open! Check on in and await for the first post to begin roleplaying.

I guess right now I should try to schedule something down so we know when to meet up. As of now I'll often be available at 11:30pm EST for the rest of the week. I could also try to get on before 2:30 EST as well if the 11 one does not work.


File: 1499153901079.jpg (508.56 KB, 1240x1748, 310:437, First day in Everfree Fore….jpg) ImgOps Exif Google

So,  Ishould have all 1d6 in BMC if Stout Heart will boost my Body anyway?

And depending if it's before Twilight goes to Ponyville, perhaps Epic's teen years before he meets Twilight, Fluttershy and the others.


File: 1499154595490.gif (481.91 KB, 500x375, 4:3, Brent Worthington.gif) ImgOps Google

Hm, Epic is usually a bad@$$, so I gotta think of an excuse why he's down to Lvl1. Maybe an amnesia spell or something?

Also, what is my Stamina and other stats?


File: 1499184135750.png (338.5 KB, 1280x720, 16:9, mac28.png) ImgOps Google

I can only be on between noon and 5 p.m. EST myself - on work days that is.


File: 1499188324665.jpg (30.03 KB, 736x588, 184:147, 39a074ec4840396b6dcf8650ac….jpg) ImgOps Exif Google

Well the thing is when a person makes a character they must choose if their character is gonna be smart (Mind 1d6) or be strong (Body 1d6). You still make that choice when playing an earth pony but you automatically get Stout Heart and a boost to your Body Trait. So that means you can end up with stats mentioned up above. >>7646

Also as for the time period, our stuff will take place at least right after Twilight gets her Tree Castle thing and has the cutie-mark map.

Being Level 1 doesn't mean he isn't badass, you just have to be creative in how you use your stats.

Yeah I think we'll just have to get together weekly when one of us are off or something. I'm not too worried, a lot of groups do that.

Also I'm not sure if you guys want to do the Pet Predicament adventure Clarity it seems like you have your own copy of ToE and would already know what would happen. If you guys would rather skip that then we can go right up to the main campaign but I do recommend doing some short adventures that I've written so you can level up.


File: 1499189587001.jpeg (589.62 KB, 1700x1100, 17:11, ToE Earth Pony rules.jpeg) ImgOps Google

But having all D6 is still fairly balanced? Having stout heart means my body is automatically D8 instead of D6, right?


No you choose what stat to boost

Body: 1d6
Mind: 1d4

Body: 1d4
Mind: 1d6

Then add your stout heart bonus.


File: 1499190238385.png (746.02 KB, 1237x1600, 1237:1600, Tails of Equestria.png) ImgOps Google

Alright. Might as well make Epic a dummy.


File: 1499201210991.jpg (10.3 KB, 200x193, 200:193, mac21.jpg) ImgOps Exif Google

Yes, I got a copy of the rulebook but haven't really read the adventure in detail. I only got the general gist. So, I wouldn't mind doing it.


File: 1499201343591.png (360.25 KB, 1890x2155, 378:431, Roidrage Epic by Niksie.png) ImgOps Google

I haven't got the book, but read book reviews on it with details on how to play.

I know Earth Ponies get a Body boost, but I dunno if it's because of Stout Heart or not.


Yes, it's because of Stout Hart. It upgrades your body by one die and your Stamina by 2.


So you should change your sheet there >>7657 to say Body D8 and Stamina 12.


Why can't I have all my stats as D6, with my body getting that bonus for D8? This:
Body: D8
Mind: D6
Charm: D6


Because >>7656


Well, alright. I must have missed the page on dice assigning with BMC. I figure a pony with D6 on all would be fairly balanced character.

But I guess for an Earth Pony, I have an advantage in one field, weak in another and average in the last.


File: 1499202176894.png (147.26 KB, 1024x1233, 1024:1233, mac50.png) ImgOps Google

I actually think I'll change my stats to

Body: D6
Mind: D6


Wait… that means your Body is actually D4… right?


Yeah that would be best for your character to have these stats based on your character's cutiemark at defending stuff.

Body 1d6+(Stout Heart)=1d8
Mind 1d4
Charm 1d6

Okay will keep in mind.

Okay that will be no problem for me then. Just feel free to make whatever posts you can in the actual Roleplay thread.

You can voice chat with me in the discord chat I linked.


I don't have Discord, but I do have Steam.


That's fine but I don't know if we can voice chat on there.

My ID: criticalhit11272

Anyways I just recommend your stats being.

Body: 1d8
Mind: 1d4
Charm: 1d6

Is that okay?


Yeah that is fine. And I'd rather we chat via Steam text than voicechat. The world can't handle my supre-manly voice. I'm so metimes commented that I sound like Gordon Freeman.

Anyway, all I need now is an excuse why Epic is around Ponyville. Either doing errands for Fluttershy though dunno what she can do that she can't with Epic.


File: 1499283434497.jpg (21.58 KB, 400x317, 400:317, aj133.jpg) ImgOps Exif Google

Do we have any starting bits (money) by the way?


Eh I didn't give you guys any money to spend which is why instead I let you guys just list off 5 items on your sheet. Reason why is that I thought that trying to buy junk and debating the prices of more unique items that are not listed in the book would take too long. Don't get me wrong though, you guys will get plenty of money to spend On strippers and hookers in the future.

As for his place in Ponyville, I just suggest that since Epic doesn't go out on adventures with the Mane 6, he joins up with Clarity to help him raise money for his farm and help Equestrian citizens along the way.


I think ToE does come with a list of common items with prices.

But yeah, thanks for introducing me to the story. I'm not the sort to go out unless I'm encouraged.


Just so you guys know, I'm usually on 9am-11pm british time.


your discord link expired


Facken really? Okay here's this link that shouldn't expire.

I figure friendship tokens work by abiding to our quirks, though not entirely sure how they're used.


To level up, simple upgrade one Trait about you. Body Mind or Charm.

Then Upgrade your cutie mark skill.

Then upgrade or learn three of your other skills, in the end your character sheet would look like this.

Name: Grim Weather
Race: Pegasus
Gender: Male
Stamina: 12
Body: 1d8
Mind: 1d4
Charm: 1d6
Cutie Mark Skill: Sword Play 1d8
Flight 1d8
Search 1d4
Healing Touch 1d4
Quirks/Flaws: Blunt, Bossy

In comparison to >>7640
Grim upgraded his body, upgraded his CMS, and upgraded his flight and learned search and Healing Touch.


They do, I just awarded them at the end of the game.


Er just not that you cannot upgrade a skill more than once per level.


So, is this acceptable:

Name: Epic Mount
Race: Earth Pony
Friendship: 3
Level: 2
Stamina: 8/12
Body: 1d8
Mind: 1d6
Charm: 1d6
Cutie Mark Skill: Defender 1d6
Racial Skill: Stout Heart 1d6,
Special Skills: "Monsters" and "Fighter"
Quirks/Flaws: Social difficulties & Arachnophobia

I increased by Mind and added my wisdom with monsters and fighting, though I don't really have a third additional skill.


You would need to upgrade your CM skill and if you don't want to learn a third skill then upgrade your racial skill like Grim did.

Name: Epic Mount
Race: Earth Pony
Friendship: 3
Level: 2
Stamina: 14
Body: 1d8

Body: D6

Cutie Mark Skill: Farming (D8)
Racial Skill: Stout Heart (D8)
Creative Flair: Cooking (D4)
Keen Knowledge: Animal Care (D4)

(Is that fine?)




OK, this will work. Thanks.
(Though wouldn't call Epic's fighting styles martial arts, more like "brawling". But still would work.)


Alright goys, back to the RP page.


File: 1500316704927.png (92.17 KB, 900x675, 4:3, mac54.png) ImgOps Google

Well, thanks for hosting it. I'm looking forward to continuing it.


You're welcome, the true adventure can now begin tomorrow. I gotta take my bro to work.


So if I want to use my wisdom in combat and monsters? Would cost Friendship Tokens?
Bette rsave 'em then. :)


No you would do something like…

You see a strange monster approach

Epic: I try to examine it


The monster you see is a slime cube, it has 10 stamina, d6 body, d4 mind, and d4 charm.


Oh OK cool!

So, what are Friendship Tokens for? From what  Ifigured before, if you oblige by your quirks and flaws, you get them, at leasts thats what I figure from the rulebok.


Oh with a token of friendship, you can change the outcomes of dice rolls…

1 token can let you reroll a failed roll.

2 tokens can let you reroll a failed roll with a d20 dice

3 tokens can let you take 20 on a failed roll.

You spend tokens like you do with any currency


I see, money for fates. :)


I'll be buying some items too, I'll take the prices from the rule book.


File: 1500389415553.png (26.34 KB, 300x169, 300:169, mac51.png) ImgOps Google

I got 180 bits. I'm going to purchase:

- Barding (light): 100 bits
- Food (extravagant meal): 10 bits
- Lamp: 10 bits
- Ponybalm (5 uses): 25 bits
- Rope: 5 bits
- Spade: 20 bits

Leaves me with 10 bits. Unless I can try to barter for a better price. =P


Oh okay. I was gonna go ahead and have you guys buy your stuff in game so when you two go to the shopkeep, I'll remember this list.


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.)


File: 1500438716677.png (852.17 KB, 1237x1600, 1237:1600, CritSheet.png) ImgOps Google

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.



File: 1500802675146.png (62.08 KB, 296x327, 296:327, Epic Mounts Wolflor costum….png) ImgOps Google

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

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.

Cutie Mark Skill: Defending (D10)
Stout Heart (D10)*

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.

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.

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

Charm: D12
Cutie Mark Skill: Defending (D20)
Stout Heart (D10) 1/1

Martial Arts: (D10)
Stare (D4)

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

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

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.

Perfect! We're just gonna omit the Messy quirk you have.


Oh? I thought you mentioned we should get a new one at level 5.


So I felt a bit nostalgic of the times where I really started to DM roleplay's on Ponychan years ago. If you guys want a blast from the past, I got some links you could explore. It just took some work was all.

Oh wow! I didn't know Ponychan had an archive for these things.

I remember our Fo:E adventures.

Aw it ends just before they fought the snakedogs! I wanted to read through it all.


File: 1517506929485.png (2.74 MB, 1920x1080, 16:9, Lost in Time and Space by ….png) ImgOps Google

A few ideas I had.

A "Big Bad" kidnaps Twilight and her friends and seperates them to prevent them from stopping his scheme.
Since the Mane six can't save Equestria, it's up to us to do so. Twilight's map even helps indicate where the six are being imprisoned.
Ideas for who this "big bad" is is either Tirek wanting revenge, or a character I made up named "Prince Nimbus" who seeks revenge for the death of his father, thje Storm King or Queen Chrysalis with her new brood.

Another idea of mine that I suggested to Clarity is a "universe hopping" adventure inspired by the episodes The Cutie Re-Mark which involves different versions of Epic Mount for each universe.
Though I imagine Epic Mount to be dead in the Crystal War timeline.
Maybe we could include other universes too like Power Ponies or our Fo:E RP.

So recently the ToE expansion Curse of the Statuettes has come into my possession. I have also ordered the expansion Festival of Lights so I was hoping we could get to those adventures within our RP group. I do not plan of starting any of them right now as seeing how our first campaign is almost done(our Season 1) and are about to get into Season 2. I was wondering about your thoughts on this seeing how we will be getting content straight from Riverhorse itself.

Note that these adventures will not be conflicting with our main story which I already have a clear set path for. These will mostly be paraglogues to our quests but will still be fun in every sense.

Also concerning the structure and where we are now. I would consider us to be close to our Season Finale and I like the idea of calling our campaigns as seasons since this RP is based directly off of the show.

What do you guys think?


Sounds good to me.
