World Of Equestria Locations
The World of Equestria
Wonder where "place" is in our RP world, or looking for a location to start a new thread? Well now you have a central repository for all the maps and locations for the magical realm of Equestia and the lands beyond! This is the comprehensive location guide with maps and links to all regions. As with everything else this guide is open to future refinement and expansion based on revelation by show canon and created content by the users.
A Brief F.A.Q
For organizational purposes the world for the Mane RP is divided by catagories that represent geographical hierarchy:
So what are provinces?
A province is the top category that holds either a large geographical location or nation state. There are three provincial level sections: Greater Equestria - Which holds all the lands of the ponies. Aquella - Home of all the Griffin territories. The Outlands - All the peripheral lands outside the first two provincial locations. Provinces as far as RP are concerned are top level forums that are simply containers for all the related regions (or sub-forums) for the sake or RP section organization. One never posts directly into the root of a province level forum.
So what are regions?
A region is a subsection of a province created to better organize the RP; they correspond to a geographical location within the Province. For example: Greater Equestria is divided into the following regions: Borderlands, Heartland, The Foothills, The Stand, and the Frontier, each representing a relative geographical position as indicated by the ( ) (parentheses) following their name. It is under the region level forum where one would post their RP thread.
So what are landmarks?
A landmark is a city, town, or geographical feature within a region (Examples: Ponyville, or Whitetail Wood). These are the specific locations referenced for the RP thread itself. They are not forum categories, but instead are tags one can assign when one creates a new RP thread under the appropriate region forum.
So how do we figure out the location of the place we want to RP In?
Listed below are the RP landmarks in each region that has a tag associated with it. In addition, each link has a more detailed regional map of that region is provided to show the relative location of the landmark, as well as additional names of nearby geographical features one is free to reference to describe additional locations within the RP thread if one so chooses (Note: This isn't a list of every possible geographical feature in the land, just the major ones, so feel free to name your own small brook, or rock, or other minor feature in your RP if it helps the story)
