    [Lore] Chamroshes

    Chamroshes - Griffonkind's Unique and Illusive Kin Chamroshes are a rare intelligent species closely related to griffons, with the head and wings of a raptor but with the body of any variety of wolf or dog. Emphasizing their resemblance to griffonkind, they are often widely and popularly referred to by the alternate name of cynogriffons, which most are happy to accept. They vary in color, shape and size just as griffons do and are in fact often times very easily mistaken for griffons. The average chamrosh is smaller than the average griffon, being about comparable in size to a large stallion. Despite this, they are very often as physically capable as or more physically capable than their griffon cousins, but are often said to have less stamina, exhausting themselves with greater ease. Chamroshes are not native to the continent, hailing from across the Reintight sea in a land far to the west beyond the deserts of Saddle Arabia. Only small numbers have reached our shores, almost all of which have settled within Aquellia's borders where they blend in with greater ease. They are known to prefer making their homes in wooded areas and among the mountains as opposed to in the larger griffon cities. The greatest populations of charmoshes on the continent can be found in the forests just off the Clopton Shores and high in the Talonclaw and Tarpan Mountains. Though closely related to griffons and even able to interbreed with them, producing either griffon or charmosh offspring, charmoshes are known to be quite different culturally. They are known to be more in tune with the natural world than griffons and are more at home living simple and rugged lives than they are in modern cities. They have a keen respect for ponykind, who with their magics are able to direct nature, but are generally content to live apart from both ponies and griffons in small familial packs in the wilderness. They are very proud creatures, as griffons are, but value collective strength more than they do individual strength. The average chamrosh believes that none in the pack should ever be forced to stand alone and resents those who call undue attention to their accomplishments. Chamroshes also value the use of cunning and intelligence to solve problems, as opposed to resorting first to physical strength. Their philosophies dictate that violence should be used sparingly, and never against other intelligent beings, save to protect one's self or others. Confrontation with other species is thus something they actively seek to avoid, though when pushed they can prove especially ruthless. They are perhaps more aggressive carnivores than their griffon cousins, and are regarded as incredibly ferocious hunters, a good sized chamrosh pack working together in harmony even able to subdue hydras and other large feral beasts.~Canterlot Research Journal ​

    [Lore] Farm Animals

    A Pony's Farm Friends - Common Intelligent Ungulates Who Have Happy Homes on Equestria's Farms The many farms of Equestria offer the perfect opportunity for a number of other intelligent hoofed mammals to live in harmony with us ponies. In return for various useful resources we can get from them, such as milk and wool, these friends are given space to live content lives, safe from the dangerous creatures that lurk in the wildernesses across the land. The most common such creatures are cows, sheep and goats.Cattle - Cows are perhaps the hooved friends most common and most associated with Equestria's farm. They are larger and stockier than ponies and posses distinctive horns and often have spotted coats. They are plentiful in Equestria, which is good because female cattle are capable of producing great quantities of refreshing milk. Farmers throughout Equestria are happy to keep cows around for their milk, which is harvested and sold across the continent in grocery stores and markets and sometimes made into cheese. Cows are typically very friendly and talkative, but can be quite docile and easily frightened; when one is scared, they are known to start stampedes. Male cattle are called bulls and are generally tougher than the females both physically and in terms of demeanor, though are known to be even more stubborn and likely to act recklessly. Bulls are often valued by ponies for their strength, and often help us by pulling our carts. Cattle are said to be closely related to the buffalo who inhabit the western stretches of Equestria. Cattle also bear strong resemblance to minotaurs, leading some to believe there might be a connection between the two. Sheep - Sheep are also common across Equestria's farms. Sheep are shorter and smaller than ponies, and their bodies are covered in a distinctive thick white wool. This wool is what sheep give us in exchange for being able to live on our farms; it is very warm and soft, making it perfect for making into fabric which ponies can make into clothing. Sheep also produce some milk, which some farmers will gather and use as they do cow's milk. Male sheep are called rams, while the females are known as ewes and the children lambs. Due to their slow manner of speech, sheep are sometimes seen by ponies as not being very smart, despite being able to converse freely, though this is not always the case. Some sheep posess large horns on the sides of their head and can be quite strong. Following the return of the Crystal Empire, a lost variety of sheep has been rediscovered which bears wool of many bright colors and is less than half the size of the sheep of Equestria. This strange breed is not capable of speech as other sheep are. Goats - Goats are closely related to sheep, but generally somewhat larger and taller. Most posses horns on the top of their head, that sometimes grow rather large. They are not as commonly found on farms as most varieties do not possess the useful wool that sheep do. Not having quite as much to offer, goats often have to find employ elsewhere in Equestria working odd jobs. Some farmers do keep them however, making use of their milk and their work. Male goats are called billies while females are called nannies and the children are known as kids. Goats are known to prefer using nonverbal communication whenever is possible and are able to communicate effectively with one another through simple bleats. Despite this, they are fully capable of speaking when they need to and are often fairly smart. ~ The Everyday Wonders of Equestria: A Brief Guide to Common Places, Creatures and Things for Fillies and Colts of All Ages ​

    [Lore] Sea Serpents

    Sea Serpents - The Rulers of the Deep There is much debate regarding the powerful and imposing creatures known as sea serpents. Many scholars consider them to be simply a variety of dragon while others believe they are distinct unto themselves, the similarities between the two being mostly superficial. What is clear is that, like their possible kin the dragons, sea serpents are a type of creature of which ponykind still knows staggeringly little. Sea serpents are rare to see, their homes hidden underwater, and every bit as large, threatening and difficult to attain information from as dragons are. Like with dragons, researchers have been forced to rely heavily on conjecture based on what can be immediately observed.Sea serpents are, like dragons, reptilian in appearance and covered with razor sharp scales. They grow to similar sizes as dragons, towering over ponies and most pony built structures and are thought to be similarly long-lived. The general shape of sea serpents differs considerably from that of most dragons, however. As their name suggests, their shape is comparable more to that of a snake than other reptiles, with very long, serpentine bodies; unlike snakes however, they still posses working limbs, notably their clawed arms. Their general appearance is thought to vary widely, but often includes full manes of hair in addition to their scales, fins and spines. Though their name might suggest that they live only in Equestria's seas, sea serpents in fact are known to make use of all of Equestria's waters deep enough for them, whether fresh water or salt. In addition to all of the seas surrounding the continent, sea serpents have been spotted in the Great Nimbusgait Lakes, the swamplands of Aquellia and in most of Equestria's major rivers. Despite all the sightings, based on the lack of meaningful interactions ponies have had with them, sea serpents are still thought to be quite rare--though ponykind really has no way of knowing for sure given most likely live deep underwater. Given this choice of theirs to make homes below water, even less is known about sea serpents than their apparent land based counterparts in terms of society and manner of living. Sea serpents, like dragons, are an intelligent species, fully capable of speech. They are not known to form hoards of treasure as dragons do, though it could just be none have yet been discovered. It is unknown if they are effected by greed as dragons are. While every bit as powerful and imposing creatures as dragons, from what contact we have had with adults, sea serpents do not appear to be quite as difficult or antisocial as adult dragons almost invariably are. Though other large serpent like beasts are known to exist in and out of Equestria's waters, such as the multi-headed hydra and the quarry eels, only the sea serpents appear to be fully intelligent. ~Canterlot Research Journal ​

    [Lore] Changelings

    Changelings When you can be anyone or anything, who are you? Until recently, changelings have appeared regularly only in myths, legends, and old mares’ tales. Any prior historical references were short, sparse, and lacking in detail. Since the attack on Canterlot, however, new information has come to light. The changelings that attacked Canterlot have a very characteristic appearance: their bodies are roughly equine in shape, having four legs and a mane and tail. The changelings in Canterlot were seen to have different body shapes and sizes, much like ponies. Unlike ponies, however, their bodies are not covered in hair, but instead a shiny exoskeleton-like skin, much like an insect. Changelings appear to bear the marks of decay on their bodies; their limbs are pocked with holes and dimples, their manes and tails are wispy and brittle-looking, and their wings appear torn and ragged while still granting them flight. A shell-like structure covers their backs where an ordinary pony would wear a saddle. A changeling’s key trait is his or her ability to shapeshift. Scholars of magic suggest that this ability is a “glamour,” a special spell built specifically for deception. Changelings appear to be able to cast glamours naturally. During the transformation, all of the physical features of the identity they steal are recreated perfectly, down to the last hair. The glamour, however, is merely cosmetic. It only alters the changeling’s appearance and does not grant them access to the individual’s personality, memories, or unique mannerisms. Close friends can easily unmask a disguised changeling who is acting “out of character.” Changelings appear only to be able to assume the form of somepony close to their size. Most changelings appear to be within the same size range as ordinary ponies, save for the queens. Based on what is known about Chrysalis, queens stand taller than their broods, being proportioned more similarly to alicorns than average ponies, though her physical traits remain similar to lesser changelings. Like the smaller changelings, Chrysalis showed marks of apparent decay, with pocks in her wings and her legs and a crooked twisted horn upon her head. Her wings and mane and tail were similarly ragged and worn-looking. It also appears that queens can extend their glamours into powerful charm spells, preventing all but the most strong-willed of individuals from seeing through their deception. The actions of Chrysalis and her brood left a lasting mark on Equestrian views of Changelings in general. Since the only recent contact with changelings was during the Canterlot attack, very little is understood about changeling motives other than their overwhelming hunger for love. This hunger seems to be an intrinsic part of their culture, leading scholars to ask questions about where it came from in the first place. Due to the visibility of Chrysalis’ attack on Canterlot, It is easy to assume that changelings are malicious creatures willing to do anything it takes to acquire love, even if their methods are less than scrupulous. Still, there are some scholars who are reluctant to believe that Chrysalis and her hive should serve as a benchmark for the species. Scattered reports suggest that there are other extant hives ruled by other queens whose methods differ from those of Chrysalis and her brood. Some even say that these other changelings already walk among Equestrian ponydom today! These claims, however, are unsubstantiated and require further investigation, research, and perhaps diplomacy. - Canterlot Research Journal ​
  5. The Northern Pegasus is an offshoot of the Equestrian(Mainland) Pegasus, whose wings, over time, evolved to fly faster, due to co-evolution with the Northern Griffons. This evolution has caused the Northern Pegasus' wings to elongate and sharpen, and their forms to become more petite. With less mass, it is easier for the wings to pick up speed, even at low altitudes. Their maximum velocity can near that of the Sonic Rainboom, albeit this can only be reached in extremely high altitudes(nearing the upper atmosphere), where this kind of flight cannot be maintained for long, or else it is a risk for the pony's life. This extreme speed has created a culture built around being the fastest (Rainbow Dash's idea of heaven?), with constant tournaments, and challenges of speed and endurance. It seems that these pegasi were bred to race. Hey, everypony, and site admins(who I'm aiming this thread at). Pinstripe here, with an idea for a new species for use in Canterlot Chronicles, or WoE. The point of this thread is to see if people like the idea of a falcon-like pegasus, instead of the normal, what I assume to be "eagle-like" pegasus. If you have any ideas for improving this species, please feel free to post! I'm always up for constructive criticism.

    [Lore] Seaponies

    Seaponies (Equus Hippocampus) Physiologically, Seaponies are a fair bit longer than their terrestrial cousins, though that is mostly due to their long, flexible piscene tails, boasting a chest, forelegs and hooves similar to those of the common pony, as well as a similar neck and cranial structure, though their eyes are generally more sensitive to light, and their ears less capable of mobility than their land-cousins. Many Seaponies also boast gills along the sides of their necks, allowing them to stay underwater almost indefinitely. However, like their earth and sky-bound relatives, they still boast colourful seal-like coats, manes, and cutiemarks. Seaponies are largely known to be a vivacious lot, full of playful energy, curiosity and whimsy. Living either in small communities or in families, they roam the oceans as they like, living anywhere that happens to suit their fancy. Though they lack the magical prowess of unicorns, the climate control of the pegasi, or the dexterity of the gryphons, they are nevertheless largely happy and content with their lifestyles - with, of course, the occasional exception. Just as Earth ponies, Pegasi and Unicorns each have their own realm of expertise, Seaponies have some capacity to both empathise and communicate with other aquatic life. Their voices able to emulate a great many oceanic mammals with practice, and can do so to effectively communicate with each other and with other intelligent sea creatures. It is not uncommon to hear a Seapony emulate dolphins, seals, or even whales whenever the mood might strike them. Being a largely nomadic culture, usually only settling briefly to raise young, most Seaponies lack access to technology of their distant earth-pony cousins, much less that forged by unicorn or gryphon. As such, the passing of a sea-faring vessel is always cause for more curious Seaponies to surface and inspect the wonders passing by. Rather than relying on construction, civil services or trade, many instead make their living not by innovation, but by exploration and improvisation. Given their taste for oceanic vegetation, of which great abundance can be found, it is fairly easy for even a lackadaisical, wayward Seapony to keep herself fed. Finance and commerce are generally not as important to Seaponies as they are to their land-bound relatives. Although the nature of a saltwater habitat isn't particularly easy on items of value, there is still much in the way of art to be found throughout Seapony culture. Although paints and parchments are rather fragile and difficult to preserve underwater, the art of mosiacs, sculptures, and contained swirls of colour still exist. Much of what art exists underwater is vibrant and cheery, there to keep spirits afloat amidst the depths and dark stormy days. Not that all sea-mosiac art must be cheerful, but the majority of it remains so nonetheless. As for music, much of Seapony performance relies on percussive instruments. Though a few undersea heat vents allow for the shaping of metals, only a small collection of steel drums, chimes and tubular bells exist, often kept under public ownership by schools and amphibiatheatres. There have been some experimental adaptations of land instruments, but very few have managed to last for more than a few years even with nearly constant maintenance in the salty seawater. As for the Seaponies' history, that remains yet unexplored; not being one of the major land-races of Equestria, their part in history remains largely unwritten in Celestia's historical vaults, or even their own. Seaponies on the whole don't keep very many records of their history or transactions, having to rely on carving and embossed scrolls in order to keep anything written down for more than a few days. Land-made paper and parchments don't really work underwater, after all, and ink is washed away by seawater over time. However, there are rumors of stashes of history and Seapony diaries being hidden away on secret shores. That which is important is carved or carefully assembled by those of talent and patience, but the majority of Seaponies leave very little writing in their wake, leaving seapony history largely kept with storytellers and legends passed from generation to generation. -Richard Canterborough, Blue Planet ​

    [Lore] Hippogriffs

    Hippogriffs - A Symbol of Amity Between Disparate Kinds Part pony and part griffon, the hippogriff is a unique species that has been found in Equestria for well over a millennium. As the early pony tribes migrated southward to flee the wrath of the windigos and settle what would come to be known as Equestria they invariably would come to encounter the Aquellian griffons inhabiting the western edge of the continent. Initial encounters between the two were often precarious--the gentle and peace loving ponies finding themselves at odds with the proud and fierce griffon hunters. Yet, the two races, both intelligent and neither malevolent, would other times find a way to put aside their differences and act for their mutual accord. On rare occasion, this rapport between the two would lead to further mingling between these differing species. The first hippogriffs came about as an inevitable result. A hippogriff is at first glance similar in appearance to a griffon. The two possess nearly-identical bird-like feather-covered front halves, with powerful beaks, talon-like claws on their forelegs and strong wings to support flight. Unlike griffons, however, the back half of a hippogriff is indistinguishable from that of a pony, bearing hooves on the hind legs and a pony's distinctive tail. With their pony halves, hippogriffs are generally faster runners than griffons, with far greater land stamina. Generally larger, heavier and less aerodynamic than griffons, however, they typically are somewhat slower at flight. Hippogriffs are also generally more docile, congenial creatures than griffons, finding it much easier to live in pony dominated cities. While omnivorous just as griffons are, hippogriffs are exceedingly more likely to subsist on a diet with no or little meat. It is common for them to go along with the common eating habits of wherever they call home. Any species of pony may breed with a griffon to produce a hippogriff, with no notable differences being discerned in the resulting offspring. While hippogriffs may breed with each other, the hippogriff is still mostly thought of as a crossbred species. They are generally accepted by both pony and griffon kind, and as such are able to live full and happy lives within both Equestria and Aquellia's borders. There are no known major, predominantly hippogriff settlements, but large populations of hippogriffs can naturally be found in cities and towns where pony and griffon contact is at its greatest. Beakbreak city, Rockwington and Stalliongrad specifically are thought to have the greatest hippogriff populations, but as populations continue to move and expand, hippogriffs have come to inhabit major population centers all across the continent. ~Encyclopedia Equestria ​
  8. [colour=#000000]Crystal ponies are a newly discovered pony species hailing from the frozen wastes of the Badlands north of Stalliongrad. Only recently have they returned to this world, having been lost to time for a millennium along with the Crystal Empire which they call their home. Equestria now makes strides to establish contact with and thoroughly understand these unique ponies. While there is still much to learn, some information has now become apparent. Like earth ponies, crystal ponies display a wide spectrum of coat colours and mane types. They also exhibit subtle physiological traits that set them clearly apart from their equestrian cousins. Crystal ponies possess peculiarly glossy manes, quite unlike anything one might see in Greater Equestria. Additionally, polygonal shapes are reflected in their eyes, giving them a gem-like quality. News of sparkling, translucent crystalline bodies was quick to leave the Empire upon its sudden return. Though fantastical, the effect is real. The Crystal Empire is protected by the Crystal Heart, an artifact possessing great magical power channeled to it by all the crystal ponies within the empire. So long as its magic is not allowed to fade the coats of crystal ponies everywhere gleam like crystal and their manes shine like diamond. Evidence suggests that even ponies and other species not native to the Empire can gain crystalline bodies and manes when the Heart is at it's strongest, such as the time during and immediately following the Crystal Faire, but only while inside the Empire's boundaries. Early reports indicate that the crystal ponies as a whole possess neither unicorn horns or pegasus wings. The same research suggests, however, that they are indeed disparate from earth ponies on the basis of the nature of their magic. The true limits of crystal pony magic is shrouded in mystery, but it is known to be distinct from the life magic channeled by earth ponies, the power of weather channeled by pegasi, or the active manipulation of the aether by unicorns. Crystal ponies’ magic is tied instead to emotions. Because of this affinity, most crystal ponies are very empathetic, easy to talk to, and often artistically inclined as well. Though we are just getting to know our newly returned cousins from the north, we look forward to interacting with them further. Like the other species of Equestria, they bring with them unique charm, interesting culture, and powerful magic. In time, as bonds are allowed to deepen between Equestria and the Empire, we are confident that we will be able to provide the public with additional information.[/colour] [colour=#000000]~Canterlot Research Journal[/colour] ​

    Flutter Ponies and Breezies?

    But you do have the wild, wonderful worlds of Crossovers (which TECHNICALLY this could be a crossover with MLP G1) and Free-For-All. Also. don't forget the Windy Wing and Summerwing ponies BUT, one MAJOR issue with the flutter ponies, at least, had a magical sparkly secret weapon called "utter flutter" where they batted their wings and, basically fairy dust came out of them, and there's weirdness with them being some magical ancient race and reproducing in a bizarre way, and living in a valley hidden from the rest of the ponies. Pegasus + mild unicorn-like magic. At least in g1. No idea how they'd tackle it now. But actually, Tales, this brings up a MIGHTY grey area. What about Ploomette? Regular pony with fancy wing extensions? In her box art she's a regular pegasus. Can we fudge the appearance of Flutter Ponies with either wing extensions, or just a weird fashion choice where normal earth ponies (or even unicorns, because then someone of them might have levitation powers strong enough to get themselves aloft for periods of time) just wear these weird gauzy wings? It could even be that it's a Pegasus with illusory magic performed on their wings, but I think that might require them to have unicorn friend to keep up the appearance, which might bring in a "vain vileness who exploits unicorns" edge that might not be board appropriate. I did attempt to bypass the Twinkle-Eye Ban by just making them weird gemstone goggles and that seemed to work without too many troubles from anyone, but I am not sure how much mundane solutions to these kinds of questions flies these days.

    Pony+Creature Relations

    SO......As my character Holly was flirting with a griffon, this thought came to mind: Now, we all know it's not really possible for these two, but the IDEA is what I'm speaking of. Griffon+Pony=Hippogriff? For that matter.... Hippogriff+Pony=Pegasi? Or another hippogriff? Unicorn+Griffon=alicorn? (obviously not, I know they are forbade.) Hippocamp+Pony=...Kelpi? Pony? Hippocamp? Kelpi+Pony=Hippocamp? opinions, thoughs....answers? GO.
  11. Some of you may have noticed a new section pop up in the Mane Equestria section. This area has a special purpose. Even though it's in the Roleplay Forum itself, it's not actually a Roleplay area. Many of you have had questions or ideas about how to expand the world of Equestria as a roleplay, but until now it's been somewhat scattered and difficult to pin down. Well, the Princesses have decided to open up the Royal Archives for public access! Though submissions must be made to and reviewed by their loyal staff (Simply make a post in the Questions and Suggestions and Private Message the staff) if you have anything you would like to add to it! It's still somewhat under construction, but we'll do our best to provide you with all the information we think you will find useful and interesting about the world of Equestria as it's been established in the Roleplay. This lore is specifically for the Mane Roleplay Equestria, though elements of it can be used in other roleplay areas. This is also where you're going to find answers to some of your most deep and burning questions. Want to know just howadvanced the technology is in Equestria? Want to know about Electricity? Have an idea of where Parasprites come from, and local cures for that pesky Pruney Hoof? It will end up here! Roleplay elements that may be useful for other players as they have established Equestria will appear. As we work out the components of Equestria as it's been established, it will be up to you users to bring things to the staff for consideration. We can't do it without you! You can find the Royal Archives Here. Please mind the dust!
