The key of my post is to gather interest for a minor, once again, hosted role play. I will only accept three or two users into consideration, given that it is nigh impossible to mobilise a more massive number of people on this forum.
Unlike my previous posts, I will include and reveal the idea of the RP here, but only the basics of it. What’s it worth if I reveal the entire story now?
Set in the early stages of Equestrian history, which had it’s thousand fake and true legends perish or remain through millenia of instability of the pony civilisation. It follows a forgotten event with forgotten heroes, when Celestia was only but a monarch one could dream of and when even the three pony Kingdoms themselves were torn amongst one another in rivaling communities. Grim and harsh times that the today’s Equestrian society would faint at or crawl up into a dark, silent cave to weep.
With the historical period overview done, I will switch to explain you the direct setting of where your characters shall act and why they shall act. An grim and long event called the “Eternal Storm” is beginning to take it’s toll upon the northernmost Equestrian communities. The temperatures are sinking, the snow is piling up to cover entire castle towers and foragers are not returning home. Your character has chosen to go southwards, leaving his/hers home in the wake of a night, in a quest to flee to a more stable region with food and sun aplenty.
Of course, you are a protagonist, so that might be more difficult than imagined.
The story will have realistic elements, which will undoubtedly lead to romance or violent ponyslaughter. Ponies and other races will NOT be anthromorphic and will keep the core elements and appereances of the original true. Humans will also be present, for all things need to be spiced up, but I shall limit their appereance harshly. The men are a invasive and brutal species, only known to your characters as rumored savages that came along the Eternal Storm to enslave or to brutalise and sell equine “pieces” such as the horns of unicorns or the wings of a pegasus.
I myself have worked hard on the story, and I have decided that it has reached the point of being presentable. The perfect kind of presentable.
And about character making; ponies and their “good” friends the gryphons are more likely to get better along rather than changelings and pony sub-races. It is early Equestria, and anarchy can not prevent racism. Of course, having your character be a disguised changeling only spices up the quality of RP. I have tok remind you that these are only suggestions for you to act wisely.
If you are interested, you do not need to send a private message. I will spare you of that trouble, and make it an optional choice.
