Normally I'm not very good at posting introductions on forums and sites and, well, just about anywhere that involves doing introductions. Fortunately, there's a guide to posting an introduction, so I'll just go through that and hope for the best.


About Myself: Oh, eeek, this isn't off to a great start. I like reading, and writing, and drawing, and playing music, and baking cakes, and drinking my own weight in tea. It's a simple life. Oh, and watching too many cartoons. And playing games too. Not that I'm very good at them, but it's fun either way, and I (mostly) enjoy running roleplaying games for my friends. Really, I can bore people to death with discussions about Dungeons and Dragons, GURPS and why I think Fate is actually an okay system.


How I found Canterlot.com: Google. I think it was a search for something like "MLP roleplay", because, well, that's kind of what I'd like to do.


How I became a fan of MLP:FiM: "Hey," said my little brother, "have you watched this show?". Seven years later, I'm still watching it.


My favourite main cast/pony: Big McIntosh. Although if I were allowed to bend the rules slightly, I'd point at Yona, because yaks are best, and Yona is best yak.


The Fun Part: Hopefully I'll overcome my internet shyness and be like "hello how's everyone I want to take part let's do stuff", but it might take me a little bit more lurking to get to that point.

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 :)

Thank you for the warm welcome, @RainbowFoxxy and @DreamsofMaple and @Kahoot, who I can't seem to properly @ at! Weird. I'll continue to lurk for a while and read things, and then take the plunge and then make my character application! I think I know what I'm doing, but can't hurt to spend a bit more time double-checking the rules and guidelines, and looking at characters that have already been applied for, and so on!
