[Dark] [Violence] [Pen and Paper] [ToE] [Canon] [SignUp]

Welcome to the Ponyville's newest and latest campaign in the Tails of Equestria RP, Feats of Desperation. Here in this thread you can read on about our house rules, settings and expectations, character sheets, and have general chats and questions out of the contents of the main RP thread.

For FoD, we will be running off of the Tails of Equestria Ruleset much like before but now we have a few new rules to go by to make the experience much better than before. Do you need to know the ToE rules? It will help immensely but its easy to follow so you won't need the book at hand and it can be easily taught. As for the house rules, it really just expands on the ToE rules and can be found by this link.

House Rules

The setting we will be in will be the normal show canon like before, be sure to make a character to reflect that. Here we expect that the characters played will be invested in staying with the party for their own reasons and all and have a general idea as to what is going on in the story. Other than that you are free to roleplay as you wish within reason. Each player must submit a character in the OOC when expected to as well as post any upgrades here when their character levels up.

Character Submission
Description: (A picture will do)
History: (Some backstory about your character. History, Goals, etc)
Body Trait: (ex. 1d6)

Character Records

Plot Hook
The players will be of adolescent age in the City of Baltimare where together they are classmates in the public school. The players share the same classes and got all of their cutie marks about the same time. The school is about to go onto a field trip to learn about the outside world but how will they fare when trouble arises?

If you are a player joining mid game then please ignore the plot hook above and look to the Story so Far.

Story So Far

Sunday, Monday, Wednesday Subject to Change

If you have any questions then please ask and thanks for giving this a read.

Just says "..." for the Prologue.

But if it's ToE setting can we use our old playsheets from our last adventure? Or must the slate be wiped clean?

Oh the story hasn't been started yet so it is currently blank.

As for the character thing, we will be following the story of a group of classmates who start out their lives in the school of Baltimare. Their school is getting ready for a field trip out into the nearby woods but that won't be in for a while.

Basically its a whole new story with whole new heroes.


File: 1543191244493.png (332.67 KB, 952x935, 56:55, Sky Skimmer.png) ImgOps Google

Oh, I was thinking if any continuity then maybe Tudor Rose or Sky Skimmer, the daughter of Epic Mount and Fluttershy. A daughter who knows her parents love her but still feels in the shadow of parents that saved Equestria more than three times at least, which enclines her to go to Baltimare school in hopes to florish out of her parents shadow.

Though if Baltimare is anything like Baltimore, Maryland then... well I never been or know anything about it so I wouldn't know.


That will work if you want it to, just be sure to make the character sheet here in the OOC.

As for Google Docs, you won't need to use that this time around since I'll have all the sheets up in the Character Records.


OK, will need time to flesh out her character.


File: 1543260877881.jpg (20.91 KB, 236x226, 118:113, 1a59418627d213eee483912b39….jpg) ImgOps Exif Google

Okay but be sure she is a character that can and is willing to go into some dungeon diving as this is what the RP will focus on. She looks like the shy type who may be a bit fearful, if that is the case make sure she is something like a good pony who wants to help others or has some other reason to go on these adventures.

That way her desire to help other or her greed for treasure. Whatever you decide. will overpower her own fears and insecurities. Also make sure she is capable as Character Death is possible this time around.


I imagine the daughter of Epic and Fluttershy to be not as shy as Fluttershy but more reserved as Epic was when he started out.

I guess I should think of her personality carefully, I don't want to make the same mistakes with Tag again.


I mean I'm fine with a fearful or somewhat resistant hero as it does follow the Archetype well in most stories, just make sure to give them a reason to keep going in the adventure.

Say for Luke Skywalker what made him go was his Parents' deaths and eventually him wanting to keep his newfound friends safe.

Another way to look at it would be Doom Guy who has an insatiable lust for revenge against Demons who wronged him in the past.

If this Sky Skimmer has a reason to keep adventuring then she would be able to keep going and do well in the game.


Doom Guy had a back story?

I think I'll go with Tudor Rose instead of Sky Skimmer. After all if Epic Mount and Critical Hit will cameo in this RP then it be nice for characters we're all familiar with.

Tudor Rose is the adopted unicorn daughter of Epic Mount and Fluttershy. Unlike her Fo:E RP counterpart, Epic Mount and Critical Hit perhaps rescued her from a tribe of trolls or Diamond Dogs who intended to eat her, I haven't decided yet.

When she grew older her father hoped she'd take more interest in Everfree life while her mother forbade the idea of her little girl wandering around the forest. Eitherway she doesn't imagine herself the life as an Everfree Pony.
While Critical Hit and Summer Rye are merely friends to Epic Mount, she still refered to them as uncles, with Critical being her godfather.

The reason she moved to Baltimare could be because while she loves her adopted parents, she wants to know more about her parents who lost her to begin with. Perhaps her cutie mark is a clue to Baltimare or the Cutie Map told her to come here.

As for her personality, she is rather reserve to talk to and cautious but once she gets to know someone long enough, or more precise if others get to know her well, then she be more at ease to befriend them. Unlike her father she will run away from trouble if it scares her but unlike her mother she is not afraid of everything and sometimes approach the unknown with curiosity.

As for her colours, I can't remember what they were in Fo:E RP  But her cutie mark is a red rose with white inner petals.

All of that's okay and good, She'll have to be about the age of 17-19 as she is in the last years of her schooling. As for her lineage perhaps you should keep it ambiguous, I can work something up in game.

Also go ahead and post stats and I'll make a character record for her.


I can think of a few ideas for her backstories.

Name: Tudor Rose
Race: Unicorn
Gender: ♀
Description: Like her Fo:E RP counterpart but older. I can't remember what she looks like myself.
History: Adopted daughter of Epic Mount and Fluttershy
Body Trait: 1d4
Mind Trait: 1d6
Charm Trait: 1d6
Quirks: (Can't really think of two more)
• Cautious
Cutie Mark Skill: (I dunno, potential to florish? Unite royal families?)
Minor Skills:
• Survival (Camping tier)
• Telekinesis
• Stare


Okay here is the sheet you have so far, I updated it to look a bit more uniformed.

Name: Tudor Rose
Race: Unicorn
Gender: Female
Description: Like her Fo:E RP counterpart but older. I can't remember what she looks like myself.
History: Adopted daughter of Epic Mount and Fluttershy
Body Trait: 1d4
Mind Trait: 1d6
Charm Trait: 1d6
Quirks: Cautious (Recommended Quirks to take: Good Natured / High Class)
Cutie Mark Skill: Leadership 1d6
Minor Skills:
Survival 1d4
Stare 1d4
(Pick one more minor skill as Telekinesis is a racial skill. Recommend something offensive based like a sword skill or fire magic)

Cautious: -1 to disarm traps and -1 to all rolls when at 1 Death Point.

(If you take these quirks)
Good Natured: +1 to all rolls when helping other but -1 to evil acts (Murder, theft, etc. Self Defense not included)

High Class +1 to all rolls when in upper class societies but -1 to all rolls when disturbed (Disturbed by being dirty or interacting with VERY lowclass people)


I'd take the Good Nature quirk.

I suppose for an offence she learned "Barrier" spell. It may not sound like much but think Invisible Woman... just can't go invisible.

The fact her spells is barriers is a slight nod to her fathers cutie mark.


Okay but your character does get a total of three quirks so is High class okay with you?

Also sounds like barrier is more defensive like a shield. I'll allow it but you may find that the game will be difficult without some form of attack.


Oh, I thought you were offering one or the other. But yeah I can imagine Fluttershy spoling her a little that she has trouble following her Dads interest.

Barrier could still be used for some offences, such as trapping opponents or pushing them away forcefully. Kind of like a "Fus Ro Dah" sort of thing.

Though I imagine once the adventure unfolds and she begins leveling she'll realise that she will need more of an arsenal of spells to get by, which she could perhaps learn from an older unicorn.
(Maybe from Uncle Critical.)


Okay I'll allow it. Also I should've mentioned how Leadership will work for you.

You can take a turn and encourage your allies in battle, taking your roll and halving it. The roll will then be added to their rolls for their next turn as a bonus.

LD 1d6=4 => Friend's roll 1d6+2

You can also use it as persuasion just roleplay it well. It is governed by Charm.

Here is your sheet so far. Is this okay?

Name: Tudor Rose
Race: Unicorn
Gender: Female
Description: Like her Fo:E RP counterpart but older. I can't remember what she looks like myself.
History: Adopted daughter of Epic Mount and Fluttershy
Body Trait: 1d4
Mind Trait: 1d6
Charm Trait: 1d6
Quirks: Cautious, Good Natured, High Class
Cutie Mark Skill: Leadership 1d6
Minor Skills:
Survival 1d4
Stare 1d4
Barrier 1d4


Leadership will be very useful. Especially when it comes to fighting or situations where Tudor can't directly help.

>Friend realise the only way through is to push asside the massive boulder in the way.
Rose: [Leadership] "You can do this! I know you can!"
>Friend has more determination and will to do the thing.

Or something like that.


Yeah basically like that. I'll make the character sheet and put it into the records in the original post. You may have to reload the thread to see it.


Do you remember what Tudor Rose we had for Fo:E RP was like?

I can't remember if she was green or not.


I think she was a green alicorn hybrid pony (This was before the Princess Twilight thing.) Of course I'm open to any changes you want to make for her. As for personality she was too young to have one yet.


I think we best keep her as a unicorn. Alicorn might be a bit too OP for her.

Unless she become a princess later on down the line but I don't see what manner of chances would lead to that.

I'm a bit tired now (Will go to bed after this movie I'm watching) but I'll see if I can draw her tommorow.


File: 1543276449519.jpg (62.69 KB, 750x600, 5:4, ControlWeather.jpg) ImgOps Exif Google

Okay all of it is done and she is now in the records ready to go. I'm gonna keep this up tonight for now to see if anyone else wants to join.

I kinda want to stay only a GM but it does look like I will need to toss in a character myself to keep the party alive. I dunno, I will have to see.


Maybe a gal pal for Rose?

Come to think of it, this will be the first time having a female character as my main in any RP ever. Can't recall the last time I played a female character...


I'm still gonna hold off on it for now but yeah I think this will be very interesting to see play out. There will be much more to take into account and I got a feeling that the game will be a lot more intense than the previous one.

I just wonder if Clarity or anyone else will join. Anyways I should go and start making maps for the dungeons. Even though you will be starting off in a school, it would be a good idea to get a jump on this sort of thing now.

Oooh I forgot to ask him all day.

And yeah, it would be interesting. Sort of reminds me of JoJo's Bizzare Adventure where the main protagonist is a decendant or relative of the previous protagonist.

Oh! I forgot, While browsing Derpibooru, I came across this image. Was there a new ToE campaign out recently?


File: 1543327030670.png (165 KB, 1360x768, 85:48, Tudor Rose.png) ImgOps Google

What you think so far? Her tail is suppose to be partially braided.

I wanted to give her almond shaped eyes to genetically differate herself from Epic and Fluttershybut show some of her precocious, reserved and thoughtful nature.


File: 1543335198902.png (221.59 KB, 1024x1245, 1024:1245, cmca31.png) ImgOps Google

I'll join but I really don't have time yet. I need to do several IRL things first, so won't be able to make it before next week.


File: 1543378862414.png (59.07 KB, 576x576, 1:1, 1524891__safe_artist-colon….png) ImgOps Google

Whoa... that's a weird photoshop you got there... and strange tool bar at the bottom. What version of Photoshop and Windows are you running?

Also yeah it looks pretty good. I lost my tablet pen so I don't know where it is. I'll have to look around my room for a bit.

That's okay, I may take some time before I start things. I'll just have to see how I feel about it.


File: 1543402107258.jpg (134.56 KB, 636x625, 636:625, Tokyo Ghetto Pussy.jpg) ImgOps Exif Google

It's PhotoShop CS6. Dunno how dated it is by now but it gets the job (sort of) done. I can't draw anything of quality fan art buts probably because of my own lack of skill than PhotoShop.

As for Windows it's Windows 7 Pro. I grew up in the 90s and keep some nostalgia on my computer.


I've been a bit slow getting this started since I feel a bit tired a sick of late but I will try to get it started by the end of the week, probably sooner.

Anyways I've still got CS5 so it is a bit interesting to see another version like that. I still need to find that damn pen though. Also gonna have this ready just in case we need it.

Name: Soothing Light
Race: Earth Pony
Gender: Female
Description: A white earthpony with orange eyes, gold hair that shimmers in the light, and a cloud cutie mark with light seeping through them.
History: Golden Rays is a pony who has devoted her future to hopefully one day serve the Princesses, especially Princess Celestia. Her decision was of course influenced thanks to the fact that both of her parents served in the Baltimare Guard.
Body Trait: 1d6
Mind Trait: 1d6
Charm Trait: 1d6
Quirks: Lawful, Fear (Darkness), Overconfident
Cutie Mark Skill: Healing Touch 1d6
Minor Skills:
Throw 1d4
Acrobatics 1d4
Knowledge (History) 1d4


I need to get an entirely new pen. The nub is almost worn off entirely.

How will Rose and Soothing Light meet?


I think they should already be friends so they will meet up with each other outside of the school in the morning.


Ah OK. I figure they meet on a bus or a teacher makes them partners for an asignment or something but default friendship works too.


You know what? Lets not have them default friends. I got an idea on what we can do but I won't spoil it.


Cool. Tudor Rose doesn't mind friends just need to be nudged.

In fact, I'm imaging Tudor Rose somewhat like Antimony Carver from Gunnerkrigg Court, one of my fave Webcomics out there.


File: 1543520281519.jpg (71.25 KB, 640x512, 5:4, blogger-image--1818479163.jpg) ImgOps Exif Google

Okay. I added Soothing Light to the records up above. I do have to go now though due to work. See you around.


Laterz my dude.


File: 1543761377046.png (82.35 KB, 425x425, 1:1, Tudor Rose.png) ImgOps Google

Finally finished her design but not 100% with it.
The reason for the predominan colour of green is a nod to her radioactive beginnings as a character.

Just announcing that we now have a schedule so that we can have a bit more structure Really for myself in our RP. Please see the OP in both the RP and OOC. Both should be the same but are subject to change.


Soothing Light's lvl 2 upgrades.

Upgrade Body, Mind

Skill Stout Heart, Throw, Acrobatics


File: 1545229938986.jpg (196.8 KB, 921x793, 921:793, Gunnerkrigg christmas.jpg) ImgOps Exif Google

A'ight, level up time.
What do I want for Christmas?

I guess it be nice if Tudor Rose starts learning attack spells, but at the same time would like them roleplayed in.

And maybe I should replace Cautious with Curious because honestly "cautious" is more of a benefitial trait than a negative quirk.

As for physical upgrades, Mind and body?


File: 1545230162818.jpg (71.25 KB, 640x512, 5:4, blogger-image--1818479163.jpg) ImgOps Exif Google

Alright so Mind and Body is done. Cautious to Curious

Now upgrade or learn 3 more skills. Remember you can only upgrade a skill to the cap of its governed trait.

Example: You can have atmost a History Skill of 1d6 if your Mind is only 1d6. This does not apply to Cutie Mark skills as they automatically upgrade.


I guess "Magic Missle" if Twilight would teach her it (or whatever it's called in ToE book). Barrier could also be upgraded. As for that last skill point I do not know what to do with it.


File: 1545230501558.png (330.77 KB, 1280x720, 16:9, Magic Missle.png) ImgOps Google

Forgot to include picture, but you know what I mean.


So Magic Missile (I like that more than Stun Ray) and upgrade barrier. Okay one more skill. Perhaps something to do with a melee weapon so you won't have to halve or quarter your damage.

I'd recommend learning a sword skill to fit your character but it is up to you. To see what weapons are available, look to the house rules. I might add in blackpowder firearms but am not sure.


Yes. Melee is good. Daddy wants his little girl strong. As for what weapon suits her, I do not know yet. Maybe a bludgeoning weapon.


File: 1545230735315.gif (1003.24 KB, 512x384, 4:3, 5bb.gif) ImgOps Google

Pick a weapon type you want to specialize in.

Swords, Hammers, Axes, Pole Arms, Bludgeon, Bows, Crossbows, or Thrown weapons.

Stats can be found at the bottom of this doc. Doc is also in OP.


For now I'll go with "bludgeon", though perhaps this can be changed or refined in the future where our girls get more taste of adventure.


An interesting choice but I imagine swords are too cliche these days. Anways done and that should be it.


They are a bit cliché and I haven't decided yet if Tudor Rose is more of a mage or a ranger like character.


My brother is rehauling my computer so may take a day or two before I have everything like it was before.

So I might be a bit late with RPing, Ponyboard stuff, steam etc.

But once he;s sorted it I should be able to play games without crashing again.


Well my brother has gone back to London and no more than a day and me and Mum are already worried sick about him. I wish things were how they used to be 2 years a go but I'm starting to forget how they used to be and sort of accepting things will be a constant emotional struggle now.

But other than that dreary news, I'm up for continuing ig you are. I will try not to let my family issues make me miserable.
