EXPOSITION! I has it. Years had passed since we had seen our friends at the Grey Area Condominium Complex. Things have changed. Most notably, the owner and founder, Mr. Grey Matter (GreyMatter) himself, had moved out. He and his wife, Pesto, (CrimsonNova) had long wished to start a family, but while the complex was, in fact, built to be family friendly, RUNNING it with a family was another thing entirely. So eventually, Grey chose some young blood, somepony not romantically involved at that point to take over for him. Besides, the guy needed a win, being rejected so oft from the royal guard. So, Grey named Clear Skies (Cainiam) as the new owner, on the condition that he not change the name or the family friendly style. In the meantime, his mentor, Watcher (also Cainiam), formerly a member of the Royal Guard, nears retirement age, and they have grown together, into a relationship that can only be explained as a mixture of two friends and a father son relationship. Speaking of military jobs, Pawn (fireraven23) is now under the employ of the Equestrian Army, and has in fact proven himself worthy enough to be declared a General, and is thus following his grandfather's footsteps, making him a very happy pony. He is, at the moment, on vacation, although he still pays for his room at the condo, and it awaits his eventual return. And what of his friend, Hotshot (GreyMatter)? Well Hotshot, with the help of his friend, moved past his days of playing sports. Instead, he followed his friend into the army. While not quite intelligent enough to be a general, Hotshot has become a strong follower, but can make a brash decision when he needs to. As a result of his strength, when Pawn made general, Hotshot was the first soldier he chose to lead. His wife, Rocka (Snowy) is touring. Ah, wives, so much romance has happened in the meantime as well! For one, Chrysalis (QueenChrysalis747) and Cloud (CloudShimmers) are married and have a foal! And Swash the Buckle (ExtravagantEvil) and Snowy (Snowy)? They have a foal on the way! But...don't tell Swash. He doesn't know yet, because he is currently out pirating. Snowy hopes to surprise him wit the news when he returns, but she doesn't know if he will return in time. She may just end up surprising him with the foal itself at this rate! And Thyme (fireraven23)? No, not a mother. Not to a pony at least, but she does still have her cat, Sugar. She has actually been touring Equestria, not as a celebrity. Not at first, at least, but now? Well she just got her cookbook published, and is a celebrity chef. She just made her return, at her old job, giving the Grey Area an even better chef than they had when she was younger. But on to those young'ins, eh? Neon Scratch (Snowy) and Twilight Shine (hinata2000100)? They are now about teenage, but smart kids! In fact, Neon has been taken as an apprentice by Ponyville's own Vinyl Scratch. She had seen a lot of herself in him. And Twilight has stayed living here, and has developed a crush on Neon as well. And Easy Going (TheBlueMage) finished his kids playhouse! It is gonna get a lot more use coming up, with all the new foals. In fact, after his work here, he has built and designed buildings all over Equestria. Going from a Foreman to an architect, he has the respect of his employees by being the first really hands on architect. And now he has returned to his old stomping grounds to take a break, and see how the place is. Easy Going's friends from the Mareibbean have gone their seperate ways, the brutish brother, Gumbo (TheBlueMage) has returned home, to tame the untamed lands, while the mystical sister, Mojo (TheBlueMage), who prefers to be called Madame Mystic, has gone about Equestria in an effort to seek fame. She met many odd and eccentric ponies like herself, but still, she always remembered life at the Grey Area, and was destined to return some day. The Grey Area also has some new tennants! First off is Tarot (TheBlueMage...who else?), a unicorn known for going from place to place telling people of their future, with uncanny, but not 100%, accuracy. The newest tennant though, is a very mysterious pony named Vox Cast (Shame)... Well, that took a while to type, but I think that is everypony. Let's get started then, hmm? Seeing as how Grey Isn't here at the moment, I will leave it up to somepony else to get us started...
This topic is made to celebrate my RP, The Grey Area, reachin 400 posts. It is now less than 100 away from being the number one most replied to post in FiM Free-For-All. I needed to thank everypony involved, in some way. So, simply put, the RP here is in the same setting, the Grey Area Condominiums, and is set one year in the future, and does just that, celebrates the one year anniversary of the Grey Area. Anypony can join, and if you choose to be a renter in this, please, don't be afraid to check out the other RP and see if you want to join it. Anywho, let's begin... Grey was finishing putting things up. He wanted to surprise his workers, so he had Pinkie Pie arrange for a party, and tell everypony in person, so it would not spread to his workers. He sent out all his and renters to lunch, to celebrate the one year anniversary, but little did they know, they would return to a party. They were due back at exactly 1 PM, and it was 12:59 PM now. So...he waited...
This is the official OOC thread for my Grey Area RP. As explained in the RP, I have tried to maintain a line to everybody RPing, but as the RP grows, is has become cumbersome. Resultantly, I have opened this thread to allow for those discussions to take place, to gauge interest, and more. This way, as I cannot be awake all hours of the day, anybody in the RP can answer any questions a new player may have. This is not solely for use to answer those questions though. Here, current RPers can get to know each other as people, and not just as the characters they portray. If you are stuck, and whoever you were trying to talk to is not answering, then instead of posting a reminder there, you can tell that person here. If you want to coordinate something, you can do so here, you can bounce ideas off each other. To make something clear before I begin, I do know Extravagant Evil in real life, and have been bouncing ideas off of him for some time. The senior members to this thread are Myself, Snowy, and ExtravagantEvil, in that order. Whatever we say goes. This selection is based on it being my RP, Snowy being the first person to still actively post, and my knowing EE. Please, don't be shy, if you happen across this, feel free to ask anything. EDIT: Don't worry about double posts here, as the layout of its necessity to be current with the RP will necessitate then at times, and edits do not send out a notification of a new post. EDIT 2: Multiple characters are allowed. For further detail, go to page three of this topic, or the first post (EDIT 3) of the RP. Thank you!
Welcome. You are here beginning at the last days of construction of the Grey Area Condominums, a large Condo Complex built for ponies who honor family values. It is named after the creator, the brilliant, if slightly narcissistic, Grey Matter. Rules as follow: - No cursing where fillies or colts are involved. - What happens here does not apply to other RPs unless they specifically state otherwise. In other words, a marriage in the RP is not in another RP - Please, keep it clean. - No double posts. - Feel free to add into the story whatever you feel it needs. - I reserve the right to add new rules as I see necessary. - This goes on past the opening, and into the usage of the condos - Have fun! Certian positions need to be filled, and so long as this post can be edited, I will fill in the spots, or add more as needed. Foreman/Forewoman: Easy-going-A105 (Thebluemage) Renters: Swash the Buckle-A114 (ExtravagantEvil), Twilight Shine/Twilight's Mother/Twilight's Father((Color Unknown))-A110 (Hinata2000100), Madam Mystic AKA Mojo-A106 (Thebluemage) , Gumbo-A106 (Thebluemage) Construction workers: Runner-A101 (SaucySpider) Janitors: Screw Loose-Lives at home (PonyHooves) Maintenence: Cloud-Basement (CloudShimmers) Chefs: Thyme-A109 (fireraven23) Receptionists: Snowy Dash-A102 (Snowy) Security: Clear Skies-No room yet (Cainiam), Watcher-A101 (Cainiam) Misc: Neon Scratch-A102 (Snowy) Grey Matter enters Building A of the new Grey Area Condominiums, searching for the project foreman. With nopony to be found, he begins to tour the building to see if it is up to par. Construction is complete here, just needs to be furnished. He remembers that today is when the first renters come to look, and awaits them at the front desk. EDIT: To anypony who wants to join new, there is an OOC thread. Please introduce your character there so everybody can catch you up to what is relevant to your character, rather than you having to read through what is currently over 220 posts. EDIT 2: I have added "Security" to the roster. Please, anypony looking to join, I urge you to be security, while you are allowed to join into most roles, other RPers are pointing out the need for security staff. Thank you. EDIT 3: The security position has been filled. While more help is always appreciated, you need not any longer feel obliged to join as a security guard. ALSO I want to say here, to anypony joining or already here, please, feel free to RP as multiple characters, I have no problem with that, so long as you can handle them. EDIT 4: Added to the roster, room numbers added. I intend to post in the companion thread a full list of rooms, and try to scan up a floor plan.
