h-hEWWO ,, for all intents & purposes ... i'm milly! 

i've been active enough in the original side of mlp since the show started. original side referring to, of course, all original content spawned off the show, versus the canon content. i stopped watching the show personally - more so out of laziness than anything else - but my love for making my own characters never really stopped. so here i am! i have my biggest presence as an artist; but i'm here mostly to get back into roleplaying, and i'm not sure how relevant i'll make the artist side of my life here. i've served longer as a roleplayer than a fan of mlp or artist, but ... in the last few years i've lost my spark for writing and ... i want it back, haha. i miss being excited for replies and interacting with other characters :^(

 

found the site mostly just by specifically browsing for mlp rp sites. i've had experience on some others, but no recent success, so ... maybe this site will change that. i honestly have a ton of questions. to use a character here, i'd have to go through the whole approval process, right? and ... how friendly is this process towards characters built not exactly with the canon mlp in mind? without show reference, i honestly just make my ocs - i guess most of them would be show-friendly, but i'm not entirely sure on some of them. does that work or ... do i have to specifically apply canon/in-show logic to all characters, regardless? HMM ...

Welcome to Canterlot.com!

I am Kahoot :D 

 

I am more than positive you will enjoy your stay, to start off of course... You should probably read the site guidelines and protocols of RP before getting started. The rules are easy to follow and simply a way to allow everyone to have fun. Now, anypony is allowed to post a thread in the Free For All section without making a character application... This is where things may seem a bit confusing, but do not fret! A character application is basically a description of your OC or a character you would like to use in the World of Equestriaforum. In fact, they're not at all hard to make, here is a guide on how to make one and here is an example of one (As you can see in the comments of my thread, a Senior RP Staff or Moderator put an approval message, this is when you know you're all set for RP fun in the WoE section). As you can see, under your profile image it says "Member", once it says "RP Certified" like under my profile image, that is when you know you're set and ready to RP in the WoE section as well. Also! It may take a day or two for you to become RP Certified, for me, it took a bit longer and if you've been waiting a while, don't hesitate to contact staff... They're really nice and helpful!

 

Free For All- You do not need an approved application or be RP Certified, your OC can be anything you like... From an alicorn to some weird hybrid of a monster... It's all up to you!

World of Equestria- Your character has to be more realistic, here are some examples of animals your OC may be... Staff may ask for you to change a few things before they can approve it. If you want to use a pony or animal from the actual MLP show itself, you will also need to make an application for them... Here is a list of cast members from the show!

Crossovers- Want your pony in a video game, anime, show? Look no further! For here is where your pony can live in Narnia, maybe even the land of Ooo? Anything!

Multiverse- Basically a place for Alternate Universe's.

Out of Character Discussion- Now, they're two of these... One for the Free For All forum and one for WoE forum. Here, you can plan out your RP's, it's a great tool if there is more than you and another pony!

 

Don't forget to title for RP's with Open (If you're still welcoming more players), Closed (If you're no longer welcoming anyone else), Ask to Join (If someone would like to join, this title tells them to contact you for permission), or Sign up in OOC (This directs an interested pony to go to your thread in the Out of Character section to sign up... This basically means they will provide a description of the OC or character they would like to use... This is good for long-term RP's with a lot of players)

 

Now I know, this may seem really complicated but it isn't once you get the hang of it! I went through this process myself and now everything is going by like a piece of cake :D 

Already have OCs? You will need to make an application for them if you would like to use them in WoE as I stated above, although, you can freely use them in the Free For All forum without them being approved.

 

If you still feel lost about a certain forum, there is a description in small letters underneath the title!

 

You can make a character log to hold all your OC's and playable cast members, here is an example. Character sheets are the Free For All version of a character application, here is an example.

 

Hopefully, I cleared up most things... If you're still lost, simply ask for help! I am more than happy to help a fellow member out :)

aaa, yeah, i quickly noticed the difference between woe & ffa; glad to know about the options. might stick to ffa until i'm feeling a little more ... official :"^)
after all ... stamps & a neat little rp certified title sounds nice! but at the cost of a well-written character? oof, might take me awhile considering i have a brain the equivalent of a can of spaghettios.

^what they said:D

 

As for cannon like characters, the site allows for hybrids like zonys (zerbra-pony) and such. I recommend browsing the OC forum so you can get a general idea, that's what I did.

 

Btw, I'm up for almost any rp, so if ya want someone, hit me up some time!
