"Citadel, this is Bastion 1 Actual, come back." "Bastion 1 Actual, Citadel reads you 5 by 5." "Citadel, good copy. Be advised, eyes on AO, rolling into valley from the South-west." "Bastion 1 Actual, acknowledged. From what you can tell, uh, what's the status of the settlement?" "Citadel, settlement has gone dark. Could be an issue with the Spectra Grid. Break." "...." "Citadel, back on net. Eyes on large illumination in roughly the, uh, the center of the settlement." "Bastion 1 Actual, Afirm. Proceed to phase line and dismount." Lunar: Shadow of Equestria Welcome to the alternative future of MLP, a world which we took but a small glimpse into during the infamous season finale. A lot has changed since Nightmare Moon's segment of the episode, centuries of darkness and restrictions on magic have lead to leaps in technology for pony kind. The Princess of The Night and her new government have also risen a large conventional military, branching off into differing sections of service to defend the Republic. YOU will play as a Lunar Ranger, an operator apart of a small corps of personnel that specializes in combating magical threats. To get an idea of what the Rangers and their sister branches of capable of, along with other bits of world info, I suggest you read the document below before creating a character. https://docs.google.com/document/d/1Q5uRJNpEUR-OicCRNEWTGVN203eYQTMzJs-Lo1uJs-4/edit?usp=sharing Welcome back, now that you've been acquainted with your friendly forces, and a few of your hostile ones, you can now effectively create a character. Please post them below before the start of the rp. We'll be taking roughly five members for this operation, with myself included in that number. Our team will be responding in support of a company of Lunar Guard Tactical Troopers. After a number of mysterious happenings occur while the company is investigating a settlement, our team will be inserted to not only find missing squads but also discover what exactly is happening their.
The mountainous areas that Canterlot were built upon was peaceful and serene during the time of night. The cool winds blew and gave a soft chill, the stars twinkled in the night sky as the moon shone down it's bright white light to the lands below, and groups of fireflies flew around the grassy plains while their bodies glowed green. Meanwhile, in the royal city itself, groups of wandering ponies were beginning to end their daily routines by heading to the safe confines of their homes, preparing for bed and ready to start anew in the morning. However, there were a small number that chose stay awake for the night, not minding to remain active during dusk hours. Suddenly, outside of Caterlot's large moat, a ball of spiraling energy appeared without proper reason, and exploded. The explosion only left a couple meters worth of grass to be burnt into a black crisp, but it was loud enough to be heard from miles. Once the smoke has cleared, a form of a creature became visible. It was tall and bipedal, standing to be six feet in height with a slender-like build. It wore a strange, orange, rubbery suit that was covered in holes and burns that emitted small streams of smoke. The being's head seemed to be completely made of metal and was slopped in shape. He didn't appear to have a mouth, or an actual face for that matter, but a singular 'eye' that looked more like something from a flashlight. After some time of regaining his senses, the being began to turn and look around the environment he was in frantically, his mind filled with worry and fear as he acknowledged that he was in a completely different world. Despite looking like a golem of some sorts, his movements and mannerisms seemed very organic. "Mother?" He called out loudly as he continued to look around the environment in confusion and worry. His voice sounding very reminiscent to an organic. "MOTHER?!" (Here's the link to the discussion thread about this rp to anyone is interested in joining.

Hello to anyone reading this! I am very new to this site, and I would like to start off an idea of an rp that's been in my mind for some time. While this is an rp in the FFA category, I would like it (and need) for anyone to play the roles of the mane six (plus Starlight Glimmer) and Princesses. Here's a brief overview of what's going on. A self-aware, semi-organic robot by the name of Gabriel was trying to escape from a pursuit with his creator and adopted mother, Eleanor. They were being chased by members of an organization that previously supported her scientific projects; such as trans-dimensional travel. Desperate on trying to find a way to get away from their pursuers, Eleanor activated a portal that was still under construction, and attempted to input a trajectory that would only "teleport" them to a random location outside of the facility they were in. Unfortunately, due to the portal's framework still incomplete, it didn't work the way neither of them wanted. This forced the two to become separated from each other, and end up somewhere in Equestria.Now, separated from his best friend and closest thing he has as a mother, he is alone and desperate to reuniting with her as he is trapped in a random location in Equestria; close to Canterlot. So, anypony interested? I'd appreciate the help.
I'm looking for a beta like... desperately D:. _____________ Circumstances "Barcelona?" Doctor smiled widely. TARDIS was purring quietly while her owner was impressing himself. Yeah, exactly - himself. If she only could tell him how bad he looked these days. Unfortunately TARDIS couldn't speak. Disappointing was the fact that Doctor never thought about giving his spaceship a voice. It's very own voice. TARDIS could feel but she couldn't speak her thoughts... More or less. After some years she figured out other ways to communicate. Very effectively. Doctor stopped for a moment, looking at the door. He wished Rose was there entering the ship. He could clearly imagine her walking towards him with a bright smile. Time Lord snapped his fingers giggling quietly. Closing the door just in front of Jackie's face was just too funny to resist. But there was no Jackie. No Mickey. He missed them. He could remember all of them: Rose, Martha and even Donna, whose yelling didn't seem so irksome right now. But everyone was happy just as it was - world without the Doctor. Some him-human was taking care of Rose, doing his best to make her happy (if he really was that similar to his prototype). Martha was protecting her world, fighting with what shouldn't have ever come on Earth and Donna... She couldn't even remember him. Doctor was alone but he had chosen it to be this way. It was better for everyone. Well - almost for everyone. TARDIS knew what was the problem. She could always understand him. And she helped him the only way she could help. "So? Where would you like to go? Maybe New New New New New New New New New New New New New New New New York?" he took a deep breath before he could continue. "You know, it would be nice to check on how did they deal with setting up the new government" Doctor explained his idea walking vigorously near the console. It looked almost as if he was dancing around it. "I know there are those cat-nurses and I don't really like cats but... Come on - how bad it could be?" he smiled truculently, then turned on the switch. Spaceship started making it's familiar noise. Doctor smiled to himself. He didn't have much but he had a house and that was a treasure no-one could ever steal from him. No-one - as long as he was in charge. TARDIS obeyed Doctor's order. Actually the trip wasn't so long and their destiny was close or you would rather call it "soon". 4000 years wasn't really a big deal for such a young (over 1000 years isn't really anything to be proud of) but experienced TARDIS. They were almost there. The ship felt contented about the Doctors soul being a bit cured by visiting a human city. But as they landed things have changed. Doctor was usually very excited about going there. He even used to whistle from time to time some cheerful tune. But not this time. Time Lord was still standing in one place not moving even an inch. TARDIS feel something is wrong, different. The scar in Doctors heart was so deep that even this place couldn't help him to clear his head. If spaceships could smile, TARDIS would definitely giggle right now. The idea was too tempting to reject it. Suddenly she started taking off - as quickly as she had landed. Roaring became louder and louder, waking the Time Lord from his tormor. "No... No, no no, no, no!" Doctor looked at the console, reading parameters. "It's impossible" he whispered to himself opening his eyes widely. It was like the universe was absorbing TARDIS. He hit the console with anger but spaceship didn't change her mind. She could feel his despair and stray. "Why are you doing this to me? Why now?" he cried. She wanted to answer him but it was pointless. She could only creak or roar from time to time, that's all. TARDIS was doing this for Doctors own good and she took whole responsibility for this trip. It was far from where they were supposed to be but it was worth going there - to the place where you can find only happiness and peace. - - - - - - The flight took them about two days. TARDIS was doing her best to make it as fast as it was possible but the reduction of the time still didn't prevent the Doctor from spending almost 48h inside his beloved blue police box. Time Lord had fallen asleep couple of hours ago, as he was powerless towards the TARDIS. D was now sitting on the ground with his hands crossed. He leaned against the dark brown door. His head hung, simply lying in his chest. Every Time Lord sometimes needed some sleep. Doctor wasn't moving. The only thing that could be heard in the TARDIS was a quiet mumble. "Banana cocktail..." Time Lord whispered, dreaming. It wasn't a good dream, nor a bad one. He raised his hand to touch his head. Two hearts pounded quickly when Doctor tried to get away from the castle, where British Queen appeared to be a human Dalek. He was looking for Rose to help her get away but she was nowhere to be found. Surprisingly hearts couldn't go faster, when their owner felt a dull pain in his skull. "Ouch!" Doctor opened his eyes quickly, as something heave hit him on his forehead. He wanted to complain loudly how ridiculous his dream was, when he realized what has woken him up. The first thing he could see was a big brown... thing. It was sitting in the top of his hand. Time Lord started shaking off that weird thing but it didn't want to move. Actually it couldn't, as it was a part of Doctor's body. "What?" he wagged his hand even more nervously. "What?!" Doctor groaned. In his entire lofe he wouldn't expect to have a... hoof (or even four of them!). Time Lord started examining himself carefully. Light brown fur, hooves, ears on the top of his head, long muzzle... He looked on the ground, where he could see his reflection in TARDISes deck. His mane was long and swept-back. Dark brown, which Doctor found rather disappointing. "A pony and not ginger". If TARDIS could, she would smile as a loud complain resonated around the spaceship. "But even so - I look surprisingly well, for a pony of course". He had also a short tail in the same color as the mane. After a while, another quite embarrassing fact hit him - he was naked. Only one part of his body was covered - the part no-one would expect to be hidden from others eyes. "How did I do this?" he looked astonished at his right hand (or rather leg). There was a dark brown, leather band. Quite wide. Under two clasps a sonic screwdriver was touching the thick material, waiting for its owner to be used. "Never thought about that" Doctor nodded admiringly. Even in this situation he could find a minute to compliment his own stroke of genius. His trip has ended. TARDIS was no longer giving out any sounds. Everything was quiet and steady - definitely too peaceful for a traveler like Doctor. Time Lord looked around for any clues. Becoming a pony wasn't quite a normal thing - even in the universe. He looked down on his legs. Hooves were something he had to accept, right now. Actually problem was how to stand up. It didn't seem to be the same a crawling, which he simply couldn't remember (come on, it was over 900 years ago). He stretched his front legs, than started to straighten the back ones. He was standing - finally. "It wasn't so bad" Doctor smiled to himself. "Allons-y!". After he took a step there was a dull thud as some pony started a new friendship with the floor. _______________ Help? :<
