  1. Roleplay Type: WoE {I can do para, but I struggle with it. I usually do a few sentences at a time. It helps if I know when my turn is. I like D&D. Please no sexy or romantic RP, although I would like her to have a close BFF relationship like Lyra and Bonbon.}Name: Shine RunnerAge: MareSpecies: Unicorn - her magic colour is goldEye colour: Dark Mint GreenCoat: Brilliant Mulberry (Purple)Mane/Tail: Cyan and pink, fluffy mohawk and short wavy tailPhysique: AverageResidence: CanterlotOccupation: Interior designer (night clubs, resorts, arcades, roller rinks, etc.)Cutie Mark: Gold Disco Ball (surrounded by one large pink sparkle and one small blue sparkle) Shine Runner got her Cutie Mark when she turned a dull silver disco ball into a rich gold one at her junior prom. Because of her colour-changing spell, the room was filled with warm, shining light that finished setting the mood for the Celestia's Sun-themed dance. From then on, she knew her destiny was "creating an atmosphere of inspiration and imagination" wherever she could.Unique Traits: Almost always wears hoop or pompom earrings and eye shadow. Sometimes she wears fancy feather eyelashes and a punk rocker or swanky party outfit. She usually wears a sparkly tuxedo instead of a dress at formal events. Her magic isn't that great, aside from changing the colours of inanimate objects and summoning party supplies from her house. It's very hard for her to teleport or use force fields, unless she's in a state of abject terror. If she's sad or feeling less than confident, she can't perform any spell besides levitation. History: Born in Las Pegasus. Traveled all over Equestria with her salespony parents during childhood. Her parents are retired and live in Las Pegasus with their pink poodle, Peppy. Shine Runner had a pleasant childhood, and is on good terms with her parents. Shine doesn't visit them very often, but frequently sends and receives mail. She also has a cousin named Squeaky Clean, who was her childhood best friend and pen pal. Even though they are very different, they like to visit each other. Squeaky Clean provided the emotional support her cousin needed to get through design school. Right now, Shine Runner leads a fairly fulfilling life doing what she loves; designing fun spaces for fun places. She also has various enjoyable hobbies, such as tarot reading, bottle collecting, indoor gardening, running in marathons, and stand-up comedy. Still, she would like to have a close best friend, and to be recognized and admired by some fans. One day, she hopes to open up a "disco carnival castle" somewhere in Canterlot, Las Pegasus, or any town that could use some "livening up." She would also like to have a companion pet, such as an enfield or black cat, to travel with her. Character Personality: Because of her style, poise, and tastes, Shine Runner is easily mistaken for somepony who is stuck-up and snooty, or rough and rowdy. Though she is both glamorous and tomboyish, her main trait is her hospitable nature. She values comfort, fun, and kindness above all else. Even so, she tends to be very snarky when she's annoyed, and can easily step on somepony's feelings if she's not careful. Her self-assured attitude can also come off as arrogant, especially when her fast-talking charm backfires. Shine Runner has a phobia of bears, geese; if there were such a thing as a goosebear, that would be her worst nightmare. Though she's not the fastest, she enjoys the feeling of wind in her mane. Roller coasters delight her! She likes to eat dim sum (dumplings), pesto, jam toast, popcorn, plums, and smoothies. Her favourite cake is limoncello cream. Her favourite cookie is tied between gingerbread and oatmeal vanilla sandwich. Her favourite ice cream is birthday cake (cake batter with rainbow sprinkles) She does not like raisins, red apples, apricots, spicy foods, nuts, or chocolate ice cream. Her favourite music is disco, and her favourite band of all time is Draft Punk. She would be embarrassed if somepony caught her reading one of her favourite books: -Ellie Elevator and Doris the Dragon (because it's for foals) -What Sugar Lace Forgot (because it's a mystery romance) -The Florist and the Flutist (because it's a sappy love story) Stallions may find her attractive, but their advances will always be shot down with some level of sass (unless she can weasel her way into getting something out of them.) Secretly, she prefers the company of mares, but isn't about to tie herself down just yet. She prefers to remain mysterious and unattainable (or single and content.) Character Summary: Purple disco punk unicorn who does interior design. Total extrovert. Would make a great gameshow host.
  2. From the album: Pony Refs

    This lovely piece was created by our own Discord player RexDraco. (is best discord ever) A bit of background on this piece. Stormstride is a bit of a bitter pony toward most others. Indifferent toward their suffering or emotional state until it directly impacts the well being of one of her own family or direct friends. She's seen several battles, and finally had enough of the inadequate armor that the normal REA soldier is issued. She commissioned a private suit of armor. Not made of the golden alloys as the normal armor, but this was to be made of Silver, Moonstone, and Malacite. A gleaming silvery metal alloy with a slight green hint in the reflection pattern. Each large circle is a gemstone she had placed into the armor. Each stone is enchanted to draw in any magical energy around it, and channel it up for her use as a weapon of shield. She can store excess energy in the gems, or use them to absorb a fair portion of an incoming unfriendly spell. While she will still take an impact from that spell, its power will be greatly lessened. Looking to her hooves there is a set of horseshoes permanently mounted to her with hard steel screws going through both sides of her hooves. Painful at first yes, but once healed it did not bother her. These shoes provide her a single enchantment. She can channel her magic through them to immediately summon her armor and various weapons to herself. This provides her with a slight, but distinct advantage in the event a peaceful situation becomes aggressive. "Never let your armor get dirty. Never let it collect dust. Never leave your weapons soiled. Because when you fail to take care of your armor and weapons, they will return that favor in kind," Stromstride Cloud, speaking to her honor guard during training.

  3. Roleplay Type: World of Equestria Name: Yan Lanmo (焰 蓝魔) which roughly translates to Blue Magic Flame. His given name is Lanmo(1) Sex: Male Age: Drake Species: Qillin Eye colour: Ocean Blue Coat: Lapis Lazuli, with brilliant orange scale-plates along his belly and snout. Mane/Tail: Dodger blue, he keeps his mane in a long braid, held in place by crimson ribbons. His tail ruff, tuft, and the tufts at his knees and ankles fade from dodger blue to a burnt violet, then out into the same orange as his scales. Physique: Like all Qilin, Lanmo is built lither than most ponies. Compared to other Qilin, he has what might be considered an average build. He’s losing weight from what was likely a pudgy build at one point, trading fat for muscle the long, slow way of simply increasing his daily exercise and having less ready access to food. He still holds himself with the timid posture of a scholar. Residence: Originally the Qilin capital city, more recently nomadic since the loss of his balloon. Occupation: Breath-Scholar Cutie Mark: A stylised fire emerging from a cloud, all in crimson Unique Traits: He has two bone white horns that sweep back from in front of each ear with a slight twist, like an impala's. He usually ornaments these with braided crimson cords and gold medallions. Rather than the single 'spell' one might expect of a unicorn or dragonfire, scholarly qilin like Yan Lanmo tend to accumulate several different breath effects related to their studies. Lanmo's field of study was these effects themselves, so he's collected a fair number of spells and tricks. He's capable of duplicating qilin breath magic, or mimicking unicorn and dragon magic(2), usually on a smaller scale than either of those species' spells. History: Born to a pair of qilin who needed magical help to conceive, Yan Lanmo is the treasured heir and sole inheritor of his family's long legacy. His name is derived from the fact that in a family that has consistently produced members whose pelts and scales are all in the red and orange registers, Lanmo was born azure blue as a side effect of the magic used to give him life. His scales gradually changed over the course of his childhood, and his fur darkened to its current colour before his eyes opened for the first time, but he would always be marked apart. His parents, for their part, considered it an auspicious sign. The Yan clan has a long history of producing talented scholars, and so it was with Lanmo who, aside from his unusual colouration, was no different than any other Yan qilin. His clan tutored him in a variety of subjects, gauging and piquing his interests in as many as they could arrange. Tradition also dictated that he refrain from using his breath until the clan's sages could be brought in to assess its nature. And so it was that on his eighth birthday he was summoned to the clan's manor and provided a simple task: bathe a brazier in smoke and flame. True to his name, and contrary to the family's traditional orange or red, his breath burned blue. Also unlike theirs, rather than showing one trait more strongly than others, his flame switched between different forms: now intense and wild, now calm and steady, now flickering weakly, now blazing furiously. It was concluded that his breath marked indecision and impetuity, and that he was not ready to choose a path of study. Lanmo accepted the news, and returned to his various subjects until the next year. And then the next. Finally, when he turned eleven, he grew frustrated and engaged his breath to cast a spell, causing the brazier to vanish in a cloud of azure smoke and reappear across the room. When asked where he'd learned the spell, Lanmo replied that he'd read of it in a scroll from Equestria. 'Read of it?' his elders asked, and when Lanmo confirmed that, yes, he'd never actually seen the spell, they presented him another scroll with a different spell described in it. Lanmo was able to duplicate that one, a muffling haze, as well, and the sages withdrew to discuss this development. No one noticed the qilin had obtained his cutie mark until the next morning, when they returned to announce that his path of study would be breath magic, a subject none in his family had undertaken before. Lanmo spent years mastering different breath effects, and once he'd at least attempted every breath trick he'd ever heard of hearing about he moved on to trying to duplicate other race's spells. None were as powerful as what the unicorn or draconic spells he was basing them off of could be, but he made up for that with sheer variety, from the ability to warm and brew tea, to a personal walkable cloud, to a haze that obscures his presence. Eventually, he exhausted his family's accounts of magics of other races, and he petitioned the sages to be allowed to travel to Equestria to learn directly from the unicorns there and the dragons across its outlands. He was granted the use of a hot air balloon, which he powered himself, and he embarked immediately. Unfortunately, his first destination was the Dragon's ancestral homelands. And even more unfortunately, none of his accounts ever mentioned how territorial dragons were. His balloon was attacked and destroyed, along with all of his supplies, and he himself was only spared by displacing himself into the nearby woods and fleeing. Now he wanders Equestria, undeterred from his initial course of action by his severely altered itinerary, while he does odd jobs to earn bits for food and to replace his lost equipment. Character Personality: Yan Lanmo tends to be quiet and reserved, preferring to observe than to interact, which has served him well in the past. He is still unused to the 'rough life' that he's found himself in now, though he's quickly adapting thanks to his open mind and natural curiosity. He tends to forget, however, that it's only polite to provide information in exchange for information learned, and coupled with his natural reservations this does lend him an impression of being rude. If asked, he's generally fairly free with information, unless it pertains to his clan or his homeland, as he would strongly prefer the embarrassing details of his failed first contact not reach their ears. Character Summary: Itinerant scholar, Yan Lanmo is the scion of the Yan family and the fate of their honour ultimately rests on his shoulders. Eventually, he knows he must earn enough and learn enough to return home with honour and win a strong match for the family's legacy, but until he can wash away the shame of his crash-course in dracology, he is content to focus on the scholarly pursuits he originally embarked upon. Lanmo can mimic or duplicate spells he sees others cast, provided he is able to manipulate the energies involved through his breath. Most of these breath tricks take the form of mist, flames, haze, or smoke that produce an effect. He can mimic unicorn magic and dragon breath-spells, but his tricks tend to be smaller-scale versions of these in most cases, since his breath tricks are not as efficient at channeling his qi as a unicorn's horn, and he doesn't have nearly the reservoirs that a full-grown dragon does. With a breath trick for any occasion, Lanmo is a drake of all trades, master of none, and always has a trick or two close at hoof for when things go south. (1) I'm not including diacritical marks that would otherwise be in his name, because if I did I'd need to type them every time, which usually leads me to juggling pronouns rather than using the actual name. (2) This functions not-unlike 'enemy skills' in some games though he does need to practice and experiment to get a trick to work like it should. He's usually capable of replicating simple spells that are similar to another he already has nearly immediately, but a more complicated spell or one that he has never seen the like of before will take days or even weeks to learn.
