The locomotive steamed north, passing mountainous ravines and forest lined gorges, moving up towards the snow covered areas of what was the Unikon territories. Snow covered each rock and tree, the rivers below roaring with shards of ice tumbling in the torrents. Usually, it was the charge of the Weather Bureau in other parts of Equestria to handle such matters, with Pegasi scheduling these things in advanced, telling ponies in the area to be wary of what storms were to come, what was a perfect day to go out fishing and the like. That wasn't the case out in the Unikon territories; the storms were constant, and the result of a very angry tribe of Thunderbirds that made flight and viable crop growing an impossibility outdoors. Not to mention, forcing most food, water, and supplies to be transported by rail from the southern areas of Equestria.

The train sped on, chugging uphill, the headlamp brilliantly lighting the frozen bands of iron that served as its guides. The familiar timbers bound together and standing upright were soon seen, the glistening lights like stars in the skies coming into view. The mournful cry of the whistle was heard as the donkey at the controls bit and tugged at the pull. Those upon the wall began to open those massive doors bearing the symbol of Celestia and Luna upon them. The locomotive let out another cry as it chuffed through the gates, hauling a heavy load of freight and passengers, the caboose's lanterns swinging as the train soon passed the gates. The ponies upon the wall soon closed the gates as quickly as they could, the loud clang ringing in the air as the lock was soon heard. This was the mining town of Celestia.

The locomotive soon pulled into the station, various trains already at the platforms waiting. The many ponies, mules, and donkeys scurried about, moving crates, equipment, and luggage with them. They crowded the busy station, moving about their way. Several waited until the first train was empty to begin loading into it while the locomotive was detached, turned around, and put back at the front of the other end of the train. Many others moved onto the other platforms for the narrow gauge trains headed for the other two mining towns of Luna and Twilight, as well as the mining company train headed for the gold mine just up the mountain.

A map at the platform showed the only viable saloon and inn to stay at was The Rail Spike, which seemed to sit in the center of Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

Grim walked along his way…

"The Galavant Gang huh? Hmm I'll have to keep note of that."

He looked on down at his travel papers. It said [i]Grim Weather, independent contractor[/?] all along with date of birth and other menial information. Grim smirked at his title though, it was a more polite way of saying Unikon's newest killer for hire.

He puts his papers away for now and checks on his equipment, making sure everything is there and not left behind on the train. Once done he went on down to the main office, seems to be a great place to get some work done.

Once he got on up to the main building, he took a deep breath, pushed open the door, and got his papers out to be ready just in case. He wasn't sure what to expect in such a rural area.

The main building of the station seemed to funnel in and out ponies, mules, donkeys, and gryphons like no one's business. Each were heavy with equipment for the mines they were bound for, a scant few standing at the doors wore the battered heavy wool brown uniforms of the Militia, a variety of rifles strapped across their backs.

Many looked to be in misfitting outfits, and were shuddering in the cold draft that came in from the open door. With the massive variety of the weapons they carried, these colts and stallions clearly weren't well trained, nor were they much of a police presence within the region. Though they did the job well enough, if they could.

The line of booths ahead had branching lines, a testament to the madness of bureaucracy that controlled most everypony in the world in this day and age. The Railroad office had three lines: Tickets, Arrivals, and Employment. The Mining company had two: Pay and Employment/Housing. And finally, sat the Militia window, offering Pay, Recruitment, Boarding, and equipment.

Grim looked around, being in the main area he had quite a few options to take from here on out. He remembered that he was interested in the Gallavant Gang terrorizing the train tracks. With them raiding the trade lines, a flow of income and resources into such a desolate could kill the town, even if the Gang itself is unaware of this. So Grim decided to stand in line for however long it took to get up to the Attendant that ran the Rail Office's "Employment" desk.

Once he gets up there, he inquire about the Galavant Gang.-"Excuse me, I was hoping to look for work as a mercenary and I was interested in taking a job that related to the troubles the rail lines have been having with a local gang."

THROUGH THE MISTMOOR
——————–
You find yourself in the city of Trallop, a large town in the northern parts of the Middlerealm. Nestled at the southern coast of huge Nine-Eyes Lake it is usually the last friendly and civilized place those travelling north get to visit for many days or weeks.

You were looking for work in the hopes of earning a few coins when you were contacted by George Coalblazer whom many just call “Trallop George”. He is a well-known merchant who dominates the trade in the northern parts of the world. He had heard of your past endeavors and seeks bold and competent men and women. That sounds just like you, doesn't it? But will you be up for the task?

PONYVILLE SQUARE

You are standing at the south end of a large, grassy field that is surrounded on three side by small houses.  To the north, pink double doors stand open and beckon you inside of a three-story, circular building with dozens of windows and a red domed roof.  An arched stone bridge leads east across a small river.  A dirt path leads west around the southern edge of the town square.  A large fountain is visible to the northwest at the far edge of the field.

A manila envelope lies at your feet.
There is a brass lantern here.

LA-TI-DA SPA

You are standing in the middle of a lavish spa which provides standard spa services including mud baths, seaweed bath wraps, horn filing, massages, mane styling, and of course hooficures.  There is a large bathing pool here.  There are several personal mud baths, bathtubs, massage tables, and lounges distributed around the edge of the room.  An azure earth pony looks expectantly at you from behind a counter near the front door.  A door marked "sauna" leads east.

THE DIVING BELL
—————
On the west coast of the Middenrealm - at the Sea of the Seven Winds - lies Havena, an old town with a deep history. A town that once was in size only to Middenrealm capital of Gareth but centuries ago was devastated by a tidal wave. Most say it was divine punishment for a sacrilege caused by its inhabitants. Pestilence followed the flood, then the orcs came, and for the longest time the glory days of Havena were a thing of the past.

Today though Havena is once again of the largest cities of the Realm and a hub for trade with all different countries. And yet, when the inhabitants look out to the west they can still see ruins of sunken parts of the city. Only the most daring venture there and test their luck, to find treasures and old wisdom in the sunken, crumbled buildings. Many never return.

But what you see right now is a tankard of ale and maybe a hot meal. You are a tavern in the more rugged parts of town, where seamen tell their tales and song and laughter are to be had.


IMPORTANT:
———-
Any form of magic with the exception of healing magic is forbidden in Havena!

THE UNWANTED GUEST
——————-
Gareth, capital city of the Middle Realm and with 140,000 inhabitants the by far biggest city of the continent; your travels have lead you here eventually, a city where everything is possible, where great wealth and great poverty meet.

Not only does Emperor Hal I. reside here, ruler of the Realm, but the city also calls some of the largest and wealthiest temples of the Twelve Gods its home, from the Pentagon-Temple of Hesinde, Goddess of Wisdom and Magic, to the gigantic City of Light, the largest temple of Praios, the King of Gods and God of Kings, highest of the Twelve.

Theaters, arenas, academies of magic, market places where all goods imaginable from all across the continent are traded… there is little that Gareth does not offer.

As you make your way through the easternmost part of the city – an area still bearing a more rural flair – you come across a more unusual sight. You see young woman in her early twenties of stunning beauty, carrying a way too large basket full of exotic fruit on top of which she balances a 1.5 meter long staff. Squeezed under one arm she carries a large book and pinched between two fingers a sheet of paper that could be map. She wears a long red gown embroidered with arcane symbols, proving that she is a wizard. Already two oranges fall out of the basket and she tries to stop them with a foot before they roll away.

The world of Aventuria beckons and there is always work for heroes to go on (more or less) epic adventures! Aventuria is a medieval-stylish fantasy world where lots of exciting fun is to be had!

Quickly roll up a hero and the fun may begin.

Your heroes have five possible stats:
————————————-
Courage
Intelligence
Charisma
Dexterity
Strength

Roll a d6 and add 7 for each of the stats (giving each stat a value of between 8 and 13)!

You can roll up your stats here or just use a d6 at home! But don’t return with every stat being a 13, you cheater!

"Alicorn who wields the Elements of Harmony.
Is rightwise queen, born of Equestria."
-Prophecy foretold by Starswirl the Bearded.
(Of course nopony has ever seen an alicorn, let alone believe in them.)

In this RP we we play ponies during medieval time. Equestria is currently ruled by the founding ponies who struggle to run the newly found country.

As for how we can play it, I was considering we could use the Fighting Fantasy game system to play.
http://fightingfantasy.wikia.com/wiki/Game_System
We could have four stats:
Skill is for attacks, abilities and magic.
Stamina is how much health you have and occasional test of strength and endurance.
Luck is for how fortunate or charming you would be in certain situations.

I plan to start the RP either before the end of this week or the next, depends what non-Ponyville.us things i have to sort out with my brother.

Inspired from the first few books of Redwall, I'm thinking the first campaign would be against Grogar of Tambelon who wants to enslave ponies and take over Equestria. The first stronghold he must topple is Dream Castle.

Critical hit is designign a sort of ponyversal RPG system we can use for all Pony RPGs which I think it's cool. Dunno when it'll be ready though.

I'm looking to start up a fun, show style open thread with the setting being the town of Ponyville. But! For some mysterious reason, Ponyville has run out of cherries! And no one knows why!

Princess Celestia is off on duties, and the main six are too busy with their separate missions to help out their home town. So together, the citizens of Ponyville must solve the mystery of why the cherries have not been delivered!

Roles that will probably need to be filled:

-Shop keepers

-Adventurers To Solve The Mystery! (perhaps volunteers or elected through the actual rp thread? Otherwise OOC is fine)

-Townsfolk

-A villain?

If this sounds like a fun idea for a thread, then let's make it happen cap'n!

I'm actually not too good at doing stat systems, as most of the rps I have been in were honor based unless a LOT of battling was going on. Otherwise we usually gave character sheets as just a little background on our characters, like a short bio and what they look like and some of the major things they can do.

[Casual] [Open] [Mystery]

A glowing neon sign lights the street with a blue glow: "Ruby's Night Club"

Inside, the doors are unlocked, and the DJ puts on the first track of the night.

Ruby unlocks the door and takes her position behind the bar. Waiting for the night to wander in.

This /rp/ is very open. Chill, dance, chat, whatever.

Heck, use this club as a side location in your own rp for your characters to unwind. Have fun doin' whatever, but if you get too rowdy (like starting fights 'n bothering other patrons, etc), Ruby will boot you out of the club (but only until the next night).

There is a mystery to be solved regarding the history of Ruby and the building, but there's no need to seek that out if it doesn't interest you. But it's there if it does.

A map of the club will be provided below. Changes will be made to the map as necessary. (Dice and card decks can be found on the large table upstairs)
