Hello, all!  I'm Comaleon, or Coma, depending on how many characters you wanna type. I play a ton of board/video games and like to read/watch things I like, mostly of the cartoon variety. I also have a big thing for musicals, which is mostly the reason I started watching MLP:FiM in the first place. That, and they're adorable, big-eyed, colorful cuties.


I found Canterlot by doing a ton of Google-ing for MLP:FiM roleplays because I'm desperate to use my OCs and to see other people's OCs. This one seemed to fit what I wanted and here I am. ouo


I already briefly covered it, but I mostly started to watch it because of some songs I found from the show on YouTube. I was pretty casual about it, but then I discovered the MLP TCG awhile back and got obsessed. It was while playing the game in various gaming shops that I found a group of super cool bronies to hang out with. Their love of the show and all things adorable pony eventually rubbed off on me and now I'm an adoring fan (or Pegasister, which is a cute, cute way to say MLP fan that I learned from my bros.) I now play the tabletop MLP RPG with them, but I also really wanted some more ways to flesh out the OCs I developed during our games, so! Hello, Canterlot.


My favorite main pony is Fluttershy forever and always. That first scene with her in episode one wrecked me and I've never recovered -- I love how much she's developed in later episodes and she's just. Such a good, good pony and I want the best for her forever.


That's enough about me, I guess, to introduce myself here. ouo  I'm very excited to be able to roleplay with everyone here and can't wait to meet all the different OCs people have.


I am curious on how to get started here, so, any tips on where to begin would be great!

Welcome to!

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 :)


Sorry for being late with your guide, friend!
