  1. The old castle doors creaking open with the push, almost like they where going to fall off their hinges, but somehow stayed on. Stepping in Heart Shield glanced around the foyer. There where hallways leading in almost every direction. Up ahead was a grand stairway, or once used to be that lead to the upper parts of castle. To be honest from what he could see the upper levels looked a little sketchy. Trotting down the foyer the gray pegasus glanced down each of the long dark hallways , and then up the stairway. He honestly didn't know where to start, and it seemed all to easy to get lost in the castle with its labyrinth of hallways, and rooms. "So where do you suppose we start?" Heart Shield questioned curiously as he stood at the base of the crumbling stairs. "It looks like it would be all to easy to get lost in this place." He commented looking over all the hallways, before noticing Sombra eyeing up the old banners hanging above the foyer. Taking a glance around the room Heart Shield imagined just how lively this had to be at one point in time.
  2. I guess I'll add my Guard oc if you don't mind He wouldn't mind a little bit of socializing Name: Heart Shield Role: Guard Branch and Rank: Private
  3. Making i through the last of the forest Heart shield trotted into the clearing. The darkness, and shade of the heavy forest gave away to the bright warm sun. Walking for a bit into the clearing Heart glanced around at the scenery, The old castle now stood before the two. dominate over the landscape with its dark and jagged silhouette. Being surrounded by a deep chasm, only bridged by that of an old rope bridge that looked just about as old as the castle itself. Slowing down just before the bridge the gray Pegasus stood for a moment to take it all in. "Wow, I can only just imagine what this place looked like in its prime." Heart said thoughtfully studying the place over. "They weren't?" He asked in a surprised and curious tone at the mention of the Princesses always being royal. After the long walk to the Castle, Heart shield was excited to see what was inside, or see what was left of it anyway. Watching as Sombra teleported across the gorge, Heart shield approached the ledge spreading his wings as he lept to fly over the chasm using his wings to help himself across. With the saddle bags around him, It was a bit of an extra weight but he manged to fly across the gap. Landing front hooves first he folded his wings against his side again. Trotting up the path from the bridge Heart shield climbed the steps leading to the very large main door, before turning to wait on Sombra. Up close now one could see that the castle was being reclaimed by the forest, by its vast overgrowth with its occasional tree growing in the midst of the rubble that laid about.
  4. "No, that is not at all what i meant!" Heart shield tried to explain frantically. 'I meant that if Luna was feeling isolated, Then why did Celestia banish her to the moon to be isolated even more?" He tried to explain his view as clearly as possible. Noticing now that Sombra had been walking right beside him, glaring down at him. Glancing back ahead as he strolled along the path nearing the break in the trees. Heading off the path back into the forest, Sombra quickened his pace. Trotting along, Heart shield tried to keep pace. "What do you mean they have no say?" Heart shield asked surprised. "they are the princesses after all? I'm just a mere guard, while they are the leaders of Equestria!. What say would i have? I just follow as i am ordered." The gray pegasus tried to humble himself, as he explained in between breaths while trying to keep up With Sombra. Looking ahead now through the forest, and the bright blinding light of the sun compared to the dark forest, He could see a glimpse of a jagged structure standing in the midst of the clearing. That had to be the castle! To tell the truth he was rather much eager to see it for himself as well.
  5. Tilting his slightly in wonder when Sombra seemed to stop for a moment. Heart shield could only think to himself as he trotted along listening to Sombra's explanation. He trotted a long in silence for a bit thinking over what all he had heard. Following the river for awhile as it wound through the dark forest, Heart shield finally spoke again. "I just kind of don't understand. If She was feeling alone and isolated. How was a thousand years of even more isolation going to help." The grey Pegasus tried to think logically. As a royal guard heart knew he had no place questioning the princess, but he couldn't help but wonder. "I mean i have no place to ask such questions, being as i am." The Pegasus guard tried to explain. I guess i can't say much, as i was not there." He added. Heart shield had a little bit of surprised look on his face when Sombra mentioned asking Celestia. He knew, or at least thought that asking such questions would get him in trouble, or even worse! After all being a guard meant not questioning the princess. Following the river for awhile more it soon turned away in different direction. Looking ahead one could see a break in the trees a way off in the distance. The sun seemed to make the area glow like that of a beacon in the dark forest. Could that possibly be it?
  6. Traveling further into the dark forest Heart shield began to ease up a little bit from when he first stepped in, beside the little spook from the birds. The soft sound of the flowing water from the river was a bit calming for him, and decided to put his focus on that. "i guess that could be it too." Heart shield thought to himself. "Oh yeh, I have heard stories as a colt about what happened to Luna. Being imprisoned on the moon for a thousand years. All tho I don't remember much from the stories about what all caused that. What did Luna do to get banished to the moon for a thousand years?" The grey Pegasus asked curiously "I couldn't imagine spending a thousand years completely alone like that." Heart added in thought. "I think i heard that she had turned into something called nightmare moon?" He asked trying to remember the stories he was told as a colt. "couldn't Celestia just use her magic to change Luna back?" Heart shield began to ask thinking to himself. Trotting along for awhile in silence he glanced over at the river below, and then back to the path ahead of him. "Its hard to say. I wouldn't imagine the upper levels would be to sturdy, if at all they exists any more." The Pegasus guard said after a brief bit of silence after listening to Sombra.
  7. Twitching his wings a little as a small spot of red grew on his cheeks again. To be honest with himself. Heart shield was a little embarrassed to be startled by the birds, After all how embarrassing would it be for a member of the royal guard to be startled by what, birds. "I guess not." Heart shield gestured lightly, as he lightly trotted along the path his eyes glancing back and forth at each side of the trail, Focusing his gaze to pieces of the forest off in the distance. He couldn't let that little embarrassment happen again, but still he to keep his guard up just in case. "It just baffles me that if it where to be anything of important knowledge, why they would leave it behind." The gray pegasus wondered to himself. "Even if we don't find much there. I suppose we could at least say we been there." Heart shield thought to add after a few moments of silence. Soon he began to hear the soft sound of flowing water off in the distance. Before long the river was with in view, Its waters where a sahde different then one would find out in a populated area, but after all the forest was heavily shaded, and the only sun the dark forest got poked through gaps in the leaves here and there where trees where a little further apart. Following Sombra Heart shield trotted along the rivers banks, staying just a bit off of it.
  8. The everfree forest seemed to get darker the further one went in it. Trotting along Heart shield glanced back, the sunlight in the open fields bordering the forest where quickly becoming distant. The Pegasus had felt a little uneasy about all this. Being in the Everfree forest, Going to the old ruins of the castle, and doing both while in the company of Sombra over top of all that. Focusing his gaze on the path ahead of him again. Everything way silent in the forest as Heart tried to ease himself. A little ways off the side the path something suddenly rustled the leaves. Startling him for just a brief moment he snapped his head in that direction to see it was just a bird that had taken off from the bushes. Heart shield sighed to himself as he once again returned his gaze to the path Sombra once again speaking up. "Who knows what might still be in that castle." Heart shield casually said. "Whats not to say that the old books left there could just be old novels and what not that they just no longer wanted?" He questioned. To tell the truth he was rather much excited to get to the castle, and finally get to see it himself.
  9. Heart Shield gave a little smile as Sombra seemed to at least consider the suggestion. "Oh, um. My things, yeh. They are stuff i brought along to help with the exploration. Like a lantern, compass, tools to open locks, and what not...... You can never be to prepared. " The gray colored stallion replied upon Hearing Sombra mention of the things in his saddle bags. Watching as Sombra entered the Everfree in front of him Heart shield looked around as he neared the narrow path leading into the forest. The thick growth of the Everfree leeched in on the narrow path ways that lead in a labyrinth through out the forest. Paths hardly trodden by ponies, and easy to get lost in. Hesitating for a moment the Pegasus trotted into the forest, carefully looking around as he did. To be honest with himself he didn't like this one bit, but decided to press forward anyway. Heart shield was a bit shocked and unnerved that Sombra suggested that he was stealing things from the castle. "I wouldn't exactly call it stealing if i where taking them back." He exclaimed a redness on his cheek "To me they are valuable pieces of history, and i would hate to see them go to ruin with the castle." The Pegasus tried to explain. Listening to what Sombra had to say for a moment. Heart shield silently trotted along in thought. "It's beyond me why Celestia would do that. Maybe they where forgotten, or simply overlooked. Then again even if that was the case. Why didn't they come back for them?" The stallion now had questions of his own.
  10. Heart Shield was surprised for a moment at hearing that Sombra had never been into the Everfree besides its edges. He paused in anticipation waiting for Sombra to finish his thought. Sombra had mentioned two different ways to the castle. The river had seemed like the obvious and easiest route, but then again Sombra would have to decide. Knowing him he already probably had his ways set. "Might i suggest that we follow the river?" Heart shield asked curiously "Out of the two. That would seem like the most obvious way to go. It would certainly ease navigation seeing that it would give us a constant landmark in which to follow." Heart shield could only suggest as he followed Sombra thorough town to the edge of the Everfree forest. The grey Pegasus's belongings rattled around slightly in their bag, as he trotted along with Sombra. Looking up The Everfree had loomed directly in front of them now. Its dark shade under the dense tree tops had a heavy and creepy feel to it. Any path leading into the forest seemed to just disappear into the darkness. Heart Shield looked in thought for a moment as Sombra returned the question. "Well, I'm always up for the adventure, and love exploring. I might search for some books as well, as any other valuables. That i might return what i can to be preserved at the Castle in Canterlot.
  11. Stepping out into the open dining area, Dream Wanderer made his way over to the middle of the dining area as they unloaded the cart. He had felt a little early to the party. Honestly he felt bad for not helping, But he had to put that aside. Unsure what to do the orange Pegasus wandered over to the group. "It seems I'm a little early to the party." He said broadly trying to think of a good conversation starter. Dream wondered for a moment what the occasion for the party was. Was something being celebrated? or was it just simply a party? "So whats the special occasion?" The orange stallion asked curiously.
  12. Heart Shield chuckled to himself at Sombra's response. Rearing his head back a moment to avoid the tail flick. It had seemed Sombra was ready to set off for the castle with him or not. Turning on his hooves the grey Pegasus began to follow the disguised Sombra. Stepping down off the platform as they made their way towards the edge of town. Somehow Heart shield just knew this trip would feel like an eternity. Just in the Horizon past all the little homes of Ponyville one could see the border of the Everfree forest. A very dark forest where the daylight just didn't seem to exists even during the day due to the dense tree cover. Nearing the Everfree forest Heart shield thought for a moment as he trotted behind and to the side of Sombra. "So, I'm assuming you know your way through the Everfree without getting yourself lost?" Heart asked curiously. His mind wandered for a moment imagining all the valuable items that may be still hidden within the old ruins. Perhaps he should make an effort to bring some back to the castle in Canterlot. That begged another question in the back of his mind. Just what was Sombra after? Surely he didn't come here just to go see the place. "Is there anything your going to the castle for in particular?" Heart Shield asked suddenly after a moment. His conversation had felt awkward with Sombra. After all they weren't exactly friends.
  13. I might be able to come up with something here today possibly if you would like?
  14. Oh um. I can reply if needs be. I was unsure if it was my turn or not. I hope i'm not holding things up Might try to fit a reply in
  15. [Shadow Storm][Unicorn][Male][Middle aged Stallion][Shadow Storm's app] Past and present threads Notable events and achievements
  16. Heart Shield hadn't been sitting long on the bench when he spied a white maned unicorn get off the train. Initially he had dismissed the pony as just another local pony, and had continued to look around at the ponies in the Train station. Somehow he knew Sombra wasn't going to show up as himself. It was only a matter of figuring out which pony was him. Gazing around at the crowd of ponies, Heart shield studied each one trying to determine which one was him. His memory went back to the White maned stallion he had seen get off the train. If he remembered correctly he thought he saw that stallion board the train at Canterlot. As he watched this pony as lingered around the station a bit. The stallion seemed to glimpse at him a moment, before heading his direction, A grumpy look on his face. This had to be Sombra. Before he knew it the Unicorn was standing next to him staring him down. "I'm glad to see you made it as well." Heart said with cheerful tone looking up at the Unicorn. A smile rose on his face, He had to comment on his disguise. Perhaps it would be like poking a bear with a stick, but after all Sombra had given him enough grief at the castle. "I must say, this look rather suits you. Its a big improvement from before. Why you look rather cute, and handsome now." The grey Pegasus said just loudly enough for others around them to hear. Suppressing a little giggle Heart shield stood up from his seat. "Well we have the whole day ahead of us. Have you brought everything you need?" He said before looking back at Sombra to ask him a question.

  18. Heart Shield started the day in his little town home along the streets of Canterlot. He had been notified he was supposed to meet Sombra at the Ponyville train station. To make a trip to the Castle of the Two Sisters. Stretching out of bed early in the morning. He headed down stairs to make himself some breakfast. After finishing up he started to gather his stuff for this trip. He had to come prepared, Especially with the company he would have. Tucking a belt with bags attached to it under his wings. Tightening it, Heart put all his things in it, checking them off as he did. First things first Binoculars. Never know when you might need those. Probably would be good for looking at the castle from afar, to determine the best way in. A lantern. Being a old ruin, It was a given that it was going to be dark inside. Among with tools to open locks, several other small tools and items that might be of use. Last but not lest. His sword. who knew when he might need to protect himself. Not being able to use the one from the guard, He had saved up his bits for his own personal one. Checking one last time that he had got everything, He opened the door to his little home, and headed out into the streets. Heart Shield had originally thought about flying to Ponyville, But with all these items on him he was a bit weighted down. Trotting down the street, he headed for the train station. Approaching the ticket booth he asked for a ticket to Ponyville. Handing over his bits, the station master hoofed over one ticket. Heart shield hadn't waited long on the platform before the train came into the station. Boarding it he wandered down the aisle finding a seat. Getting comfortable, Heart stared out the window at the scenery as the Train began to chug along the track. Admittedly he began to zone out a bit as he watched the scenery wiz past him. Suddenly the train lurched to a halt. They where in Ponyville station it would appear. Standing up. the gray Pegasus filed out of the train. It was a busy cool morning, Taking a deep breath in he could feel the air was still moist from the rain that night. Looking all around the platform, He hadn't noticed Sombra any where yet. Trotting across the station platform he found an empty bench that he decided to sit in and wait. Heart Shield watched as ponies went to and fro about their business. He figured Sombra would have to be easy to spot among a crowd of ponies like this. His blue eyes scanned over the crowd. He was starting to have second thoughts about this trip the more he thought about it. After all he was taking a trip with Sombra to a ruined castle where no average pony dared to tread. It just all seemed a bit risky to him. Heart shield decided he would have to keep his wits about him at all times, and watch his back. Who knew what or who might try to trap him in there. All tho maybe he was over thinking all of this.
  19. Been brain storming for another character idea. I feel like all of my OC's act almost exactly the same. Always looking out for others, and staying out of trouble. I have been wanting to come up with a Oc that lies in the middle ground of good and evil for awhile now. Kind of like a antihero, But i have yet to come up with a good idea. I think most of my Oc's are kind of generic, and i want to come up with an Oc that will stand out among all my other Oc's.

      Having a character with questionable morals can be pretty fun to play! O:

    2. KaityKat


      I can certainly understand being discontent with the monotony of characters whose personalities don't defer much from each other.


      I find what's helpful is to come up with something each of your characters has that the others don't.


      For instance, I have a character who is blunt, gruff and just generally rough around the edges. She's nice, and fiercely loyal, but she doesn't joke, or goof around (she's a lot like Marble Pie, but I made her before she was introduced).

      Then I have her best friend (and secret crush) who's basically the opposite. She's hyperactive and silly and she's a little eccentric. (this one, I have an app for)


      I also have a character who's a scaredy cat. He's skittish, and generally a nervous wreck. He tries to be brave and do new things, but he's scared of almost literally everything. (not quite the same as Fluttershy. He's got reason to be as nervous at he is)


      So yeah. The point is that I usually try to give each of them a quirk that makes them unique from my other OCs. The mane 6 from the show are a pretty good example of a group of characters who each have their unique quirks that break up their monotony, and give them depth.


      You can, of course, also give them different motivations and an ambiguity to their morals. I'm just saying there's also more options for making them feel more like different characters. ;)


      In any case, happy character building, and good luck with making characters you'll have fun with playing. ^v^

  20. Thinking about learning how to draw and write fancier. I have been wanting my OC Dream Wanderer to keep a journal, and i thought it might be a neat idea for "him' or me in this case to sketch out the interesting things and ponies he sees along the way. Only i have a long way to go from " mediocre  art" and chicken scratch of writing :PMaybe that will just be his style lol

  21. Dream Wanderer smiled a bit at Rosemary's response. Pausing for a moment as Lamp went outside briefly to hang the sign up. Admittedly Dream wished he could've helped in some way, but as they said It had seemed most of it was already taken care of. He heard Lamp Light mention of going to meet the others. He was rather much excited to get to know some new ponies, and hear the latest talk in town. "Sure." He replied as the unicorn headed back out to the others. Following along behind him, Dream Wanderer thought for a moment at Lamp Light's question. "Oh um, I'm just passing through. Mostly its work and exploration that brings me here." "I usually travel from town to town in search of small jobs and errands to do, and take in the views while I'm at it." The orange pegasus said with a smile. Making their way out to the open dining area, Their appeared to be a few others there already. Looking around as they where introduced to Rosemary. He could see a green earth pony, along with a small dragon, and a yak.
  22. Dream Wanderer stood for a moment inside the Inn's entrance looking around at the interior. It didn't seem that anypony was inside at the moment. Just as he began to raise his hoof to head outside the door to the lobby opened, as a chocolate brown unicorn came in holding some kind of banner. An event of sorts was being set up? He thought to himself. Dream listened as the unicorn introduced himself and his friend. "It is nice to meet you, Lamp Light." Dream Wanderer replied with a smile. "My names Dream Wanderer, But you can just call me Dream, or Dreamy if you like. I'm a bit of a traveler you could say. " The orange pegasus returned the introduction. He tilted his head slightly as Lamp Light unraveled the banner for him to read. Ah a party. It was certainly good timing indeed. This would be a good place to get to know some of the local ponies, and to look for some work or hear some rumors. "Oh no, I wasn't waiting long at all." Dream Wanderer replied as he looked at the banner. "Say, Would you all need any help? I'm always more than happy to help." He asked out of curiosity.
  23. Ahhh this is perfect. Thank you so much Went and changed all the images for him on here to include your wonderful artwork
