    Default [FWM] OOC 3: Eccentric Cheerilee

    A place to discuss OOC ideas about the MLP Friendship is was Magic RP.

    FAQs

    Spoiler
    Show
    Q: How dark is this RP?
    A: Somewhere below 'Happy Sunshine Fun Land' and above 'Hopeless'. Happy endings are the bulk of life, but the possibility always exists for a sad ending. Darkness also runs rampant across the world and is always lurking outside the safe walls of town.

    Q: What is the tech level?
    A: I think the general consensus is 'Steampunk' right now. There may be occasional alien technology influence as well.

    Q: What is the general policy on weapons?
    A: Equestria is an armed society right now. Every military member, including the common town guards, carries a potentially lethal weapon with them everywhere, even off duty. Even civilian ponies are commonly seen carrying weapons. However, it is standard practice to never draw your weapon unless you intend to use it. Drawing a weapon, for whatever reason, is considered a hostile act by most ponies.

    Q: How dangerous is the town of Bridle Shores?
    A: Interesting question. The town has seen much more than its fair share of action and odd occurrences over the years since its founding, and no one can say why this is. Skirmishes with monsters at one or more town entrances happen almost daily, and certain loud noises are common enough that they no longer enough by themselves to induce a panic in any town resident. That said, the Town Guard and Militia are good at what they do, and few things are a high enough threat level to greatly disrupt life in the town for long. In D&D terms, this is a town where your neighbor is likely to have one or more levels in a PC class.

    Q: How are threats classified?
    A: Threat Ranks (guidelines):

    F-Rank - Helpless. No threat at all.
    E-Rank - Mild threat. Only about as dangerous as an average civilian.
    D-Rank - Competent combatant. Not something a pony could be expected to defeat without combat training.
    C-Rank - Dangerous combatant. Not something your average soldier could defeat reliably.
    B-Rank - Highly dangerous. Defeating something like this is what makes your average heroes. Super-Mook/Sub-Boss/Early Boss status.
    A-Rank - Extremely dangerous. 'You and what army?' is no longer a joke at this point. Big Sub-Boss/Late Boss status.
    A-Rank+ - Army Killers, unofficial ranking. No official is really willing to admit that such dangers even exist at all. End boss status.

    Q: Where is the Roleplay thread?
    A: There's a link to it right below.

    Q: Where can I post my character and find info on existing characters and backstory?
    A: There's a link to that below too.












    The puns...shall last...FOREVER!

    @Half Tangible: If you want to have the crew run into your psychiatrist pony sometime through some crazy coincidence of your own, be my guest. Otherwise, I think I've got a way they can just so happen to find out about her.

    I think I need to take a small break from this RP. Generally, when I stop caring, it means a break is required, lest I stop caring entirely and decide to just quit. I don't want the latter to happen, but I'm feeling burnt out, and a break is about the only way I know to stop it, though that may not help.

    So, yeah, other than one or two posts tonight or tomorrow, I probably won't be posting in this RP for a while.

    Whoops. I completely missed this bit. The crew will probably take him up on the offer, seeing how the groups are likely to bump into each other over the course of the investigation.

    I'm think I'm in the same boat as Mystic/Soft here.

    I have far too many commitments that is tasking my poor mind and I'm getting a little burnt out trying to juggle so many different characters. (My erratic posting patterns have may have suggested that.) With that in mind, I'm going to stop actively initiating interactions with some of the more minor characters I have. (Sorry, that means Shell Shock, Lemongrass and possibly Stormcloak is now out.)

    I won't leave them hanging, but I will be doing my best to get them out of the picture for awhile. Even for my more major characters like Icy and Silverpine will be out of the picture if I can plausibly shift them to one side.

    Sorry it came to this, but I have a few things to clear up.

    Now, see, I've got the opposite problem. I haven't got enough active characters to do much.

    Sorry you're getting overwhelmed. I hope you'll be ready to come back soon.

    No worries, Grif. Like I've said, you're allowed to have a life, and pushing yourself isn't really worth it. Hope things get a bit calmer soon.

    If the guard higher-ups need interacting with, I'm sure one of us can take them in the meanwhile.

    More importantly, I'm seriously contemplating for the first time to retire the PCs I have introduced. It now comes to a point where I don't think I can maintain five active PCs all having lives of their own.

    I hope it doesn't come to that, but I don't see any other option.

    Well hey, it's not like anypony would argue if Stormcloak stepped down and then reclaimed his position later (dude is scary, fo' realz).

    Shell I think has an IC out for you (he needs to recover from a concussion or whatever).

    As for the other three...I don't know enough about them to offer suggestions, but I'd say you're good.

    And as for RL, just sit back, relax, and don't worry! Be Pinkie!

    Apologies for not bolding her name or something eye-catching, but she's got a handful of Cirrus ponies (Sandy, Gearstride, Rainbow, and Silverpine) plus one (Daniel, bard-like pony of Kelvin's) ringing her doorbell. Sandy can't quite remember some of the details of his attack, and so they need somepony capable of rooting around in there and giving his memory a hand.

    Clearly, this plan cannot fail.

    EDIT: In other words, a bunch of ponies waiting on Moon Blossom here

    Dang. She muttered.

    As Ember continued to hug hold Lochbed from behind, he closed his eyes, only to for whatever reason be rushed with memories that were not his. It was admittedly a very creepy feeling as he hugged the kelpie tighter in reaction to where it might not be pleasant for her. Oh the power of mixed up names~

    So, is there a gonna be a bit more until the dysfunctional heist group returns back to bridle Shores? As in a final post of their adventure, or are we to assume they just make it back?

    I guess this is a question for Orzel to answer.

    Well, I don't know, but I think we're pretty close to wrapping up there. Enough that I can reference it in Night Jewel's storyline, at least.

    Don't make me regret playing along. You're coming very close to railroading my character to a direction to I don't particularly care for.

    Hey Grif, would you be up for a small scene, of Fox visiting Icy? and probably stupidly at the dead of night. I wouldn't mind if it took several weeks-a month to complete it.

    Why not? You might want to uh... do it in the Misc Adventure thread though, to prevent us clogging up the main one.

    Well, when he regains conciousness, Blades could actually be convinced to release him relatively easily. She isn't exactly sane, and doesn't really understand why everypony's so mad at him right now.

    Adding my own two bits to this, I don't exactly think the carriage ponies are (or should for that matter) going to take his money. From their perspective, a pony who isn't their boss just told them they can take the bits from an unconscious teammate?

    Yeah, I would say no even if said unconscious pony wasn't chock full of things that go boom.

    EDIT: Additionally, adding in a DM common sense roll, they're going to be dragging a bound, unconscious pony back into town. After coming back from a massive heist where they don't want to be noticed. And they have to pass the town guard on the way inside. It might be a better idea to have whatever chat they want to have right where they are, in the woods, out of sight.

    Yeah, that wasn't well thought-out on my part. I changed my post, and letting Shell go is part of my plan anyways, Arv just wants to make sure he doesn't bolt before he talks to her.
