Stormstride looked at the paper in her hooves. She was reading over a notice posted in the paper about someone seeking magic training for combat purposes. She looked at the listing a bit longer before picking up her armor and strapping it on. As she set her sword on her back in the latch, she checked her helmet. Hooking it to her armor, she started out the tent. As she passed her brother, she told him she was going to look into a job listing and check on the pay. Looking at the paper one last time, she noted the address and closed her eyes. She couldn't land exactly at it, but she could get close. At least on the same street. As she let her magic take hold, she felt the world around her ripple. Teleportation was different for every unicorn. Some felt strange, others felt nothing at all. Some if felt like ages, while others said it was instantaneous. Stormstride had always felt like the world around her became muddy water, and cleared up slowly. As she reappeared roughly two block away from the address listed, she took a breath and looked around. Canterlot, one of her least favorite places. Mostly because it was the seat of power for Equestria. As she moved toward the address, she noticed many ponies and a few guards looking at her like she was some kind of monster. Many moved in a hurry to get out of her way, while others just stared, dumbstruck by the sight of such a heavily muscled and armored mare. Her armor looked evil, and the katana on her back looked....monstrous. It looked like a blade designed to cleave a pony in half. None could guess how she would wield such a blade. As she approached the door, she straightened up and tried to push her long mane back into a pony tail with magic. once she was satisfied that it was tied back properly, she took a breath. Reaching a metal clad hoof up, she knocked. The knock was firm, like someone punched the door with some force. Waiting a moment, she took a moment to collect her thoughts.
For those of you who have no idea about this, do not worry! This is a re-creation of an RP that was on the last site I was on - canterlot.net. A few friends and I ended up not being able to finish it. So, rebuilding the world so far, and showing you something outside of Equestria, although within the planet. THE STORY SO FAR Within the farthest reaches reachable by train from Equestria, one might find a single hidden hatch. Once inside, they would marvel at the evident engineering that wormed its way through the entire structure. However, if they were to follow the tunnel they would find, a grand city would open up below them, trains running around, ponies galloping to and fro, and machines of unknown design march along the streets. Guards are stationed everywhere, the dark grey of their uniforms and caps evident against the simple colors of the civilian life. Welcome to Great Canyon, a secret country within the mountains. Ponies here do not have the magic of Equestria, but live their lives surrounded by science and mathematics, with amazing advances that they prefer to keep under wraps. However, the condition of the Canyon is anything but serene. A war with a creature simply known as the World Eater has gone on for years, and Great Canyon's elite fighting force, the Hunters, is called out to duty. When contact is lost, however, the Canyon must make a choice. That's where you come in. As a part of the new Great Canyon Exploration and Rescue Expedition, your job is to find the Hunters, and hopefully discover what happened to them. Are you up to the task? WELCOME TO THE GCERE, RECRUIT. Hello. So, now that you've read all that, welcome to the RP. I will be laying out the rules next. RULES OF T-O-A Roleplays As this will be a recreation of around seven or eight RPs worth of content (NOT JOKING, EITHER), I will be going through a major portion of Equestria, the non-canon country of Great Canyon, and various other areas. THE STORY SO FAR is just to mention what the current setting is. That will be updated as time goes on. Rules: 1. RESPECT - We can't have a good RP without this. 2. TECHNOLOGY - This DOES have a somewhat WW1 era of tech-level in it, so we're dealing with basic firearms and such. 3. POWERS - Magic is only governed in regards to unicorns. If you choose to be born in Great Canyon, you won't be able to be a unicorn, earth pony, or pegasus. 4. CURSE - This is twofold. Great Canyon ponies operate under a curse due to an old nemesis. That curse prevents the use of magic or flight, and has almost entirely removed magic, and has removed flight from the Canyon. 4.2 CURSE - KEEP SWEARING TO A MINIMUM! Take a look at the RP rules if you're unsure. We want this to be fun, not a Call of Duty match on XBOX live. 5. LOCATIONS - Location, location, location! The cities for Great Canyon will be mentioned below, as well as much for what kinds of ponies come from each one. Hint - there are only 3 cities in GC. 6. DROPOUT - Always let me know if you would no longer like to be a part of the RP. That's respect, and ties into rule 1. ONLY IN THE OOC. 7. ADMIN RULE - Besides myself, there will be (hopefully) two other people acting as mods for this specific set of Roleplays. What they say GOES. I will make an announcement in this thread for such an event. 8. VIOLENCE - Keep it realistic, people! We are not dealing with a Bloody Mess perk, here! CHARACTER SHEET This is what most characters should follow. I will actually make a large GDocs file for you guys who join, as well as a Spreadsheet to mark out living, dead, dropout and removed. Removed means that you were not following the RPs rules Name - Self Explanatory Country - Great Canyon or Equestria, for now. Race - Equestria's races that are SENTIENT to a larger degree are allowed. Great Canyon has two groups of ponies: Normal and Psion. Psion is covered in POWERS. Appearance - Picture or words is good. POWERS - PSIONS have basic psionic abilities, like telekinesis, pyrokinesis, and telepathy. You will not have access to spells. I would recommend looking at Psychonauts for good psychic abilities. SPELLS - Unicorns only. While Twilight is magic incarnate, most unicorns only master a couple of spells. This is where it is reflected. Equipment - This is starting equipment. PM me what role you want, and I'll send you the equipment you get. Keep track of this! Backstory - THIS IS IMPORTANT! Personality - DOUBLY AS IMPORTANT! Special Skills - Are you agile, strong, or something else? Put that here! Also things that can be considered useful, like building, and other such things! RP LIST FOR TALES OF ANOTHER -0- The Hunter War - [OPEN] ((Note: RPs marked with a -0- before them are currently not in-thread as of yet.))
Celestia's sun had given way to Luna's moon hours ago. Most ponies were in their homes. Asleep after a long day of hard work. Or if the pony was a noble, a lack thereof. However, for the weary traveler Dunder Blust, he had slept on his train ride to Canterlot so there was no point in him going to his friend's house to crash out for the night. Instead, a relaxing trot throughout the beautifully crafted city would be more his speed at the moment. One good thing about having a close friend in Canterlot meant he only had to bring a sword. No saddlebags. And this time he chose a longsword. The night air chilled him to the bone as it whipped through dimly lit streets and between buildings. Over the wind, Dunder could hear his own hooves click-clacking against the road. The city felt so lonely at night, not even a single pony seemed to be out. He knew of at least one part of Canterlot that was bursting with night-life. But this place felt eerily empty despite all the ponies living inside of the buildings he trotted past. Unbeknown to him, the building he was trotting next to was actually bursting with activity. Soon, though, this would make itself apparent to him.
