Vengeance: Equestria's Rebirth (OOC and Sign up)

Recommended Posts

"Power corrupts..... so absolute power corrupts absolutely. Time teaches us this. We take this message from time and try to learn from our mistakes; Sometimes it can seem cruel, sometimes it will seem hopeless. But it is the hope on the horizon that has kept us going. That has kept ME going. It has been five years........ Five long, hard years. Not long after Princess Twilight Sparkle was crowned, it became apparent that peace had finally settled on all of equestria. Things were different though...... Twilight was.... different. Ponies began to fear the Princess of the stars; the one who had the power to accomplish anything. She began to take notice of this, soon enough she began to take risks; risks that were plain in sight to the populace. But nopony said anything; this unicorn turned alicorn, just how much power did she have? What was she capable of? Eventually, ponies took heart and began to stand up to her, but the uprising was short lived. She silenced the rebels viciously, there was no trial. No charge of treason, just slow, painful death at the hands of the alicorn princess. More and more ponies rose to the cause; It was clear that Twilight had now become a tyrant, not a princess. When Princess Luna and Princess Celestia struggled to justify their heirs choices, they too joined the fight to end the reign of the once noble Princess of the stars. But Twilight had anticipated what was going to happen, and so she enlisted the help of powerful enemies of equestria; the changelings. Together they resurrected king Sombra of the crystal empire, with the promise of returning his empire to him; she was now unstoppable. The assault final assault on Canterlot lasted 3 long days; thousands of lives were lost in the culling of the innocent and guilty alike. On the final hour of battle, only two figures remained. They stood tall, although broken in mind and spirit. The destruction of their kingdom glared at the from all around; with one responsible. Perhaps it was by fate that the student now surpassed the teacher, but one thing was clear: only one would be walking away from this final battle. Nopony knows what happened on that final, fateful hour. Equestria now lies in ruin, with a tyrant empress sitting upon it's throne. The populace: an enslaved, beaten entity. Corrupt nobles run the new cities and towns, appointed by Twilight herself. The Elements of Harmony have gone into hiding: afraid that they would be the first targets of this new dictatorship. But what can anypony do? A few have chosen to question this statement. a resistance has began to rise in the slums of the once grand cities. We few have chosen to rise from the dirt and the dusk and rise to rebuild our once grand nation. So, the choice is yours. Do you choose to stand your ground against the tyrant that we call empress? Or do you stand steadfast by her side, choosing to defend this new, noble civilisation? Maybe time will tell. But I know it is time for a change, for better or for worse. A time for peace, or a time for war. A time for vengeance."

- Nocte, leader of RLF, the Royal Liberation Force.

Hi there everypony!

Some of you may know me around here, others may not. To those of you who don't, you can call me British. Now, what we have here is an idea that I've been cooking up for a while now. Some of you may remember Valencetiger's revolution saga: an rp that I dearly miss, and wish to revive in a way, with my own spin on things of course. To put the plot into a basic summary, you can refer to the first sentence of the above. Power corrupts, so absolute power corrupts absolutely. We all pondered how Twilight may react and cope with her new royal status, but what if she took it the wrong way? That is basically the premise.

What about characters?

With the rise of Twilight as dictator-evil-empress, a new caste system has been developed. At the top sit the nobles of the new civilisation, which are mainly comprised of Unicorns and Changelings. Next stand the middle class, mostly Pegasi, with a few Unicorns and Earth Ponies. After that is the working class, a mix of the bunch, with all three pony races, but mainly Earth Ponies. But at the bottom of the pile are the non-pony races, Zebras, Dragons, Gryphons, and the rest of the races that inhabit the new Equestria. The mane six are still about, but have gone into hiding to stop themselves from being targeted by the empress. If you wish to play as one of them, let me know via pm.

What happened to the cities and towns?

Canterlot remains the capital of Equestria, but has been rebuilt and renamed to Equinia after the destruction of the culling. Other cities include New ponyville, the once peaceful village turned bustling city, rivalling the population of Canterlot, Las Pegasus, Stalliongrad, Manehatten, Appaloosa and Thunderneigh. Since the return of Sombra, many crystal ponies have fled the empire, but it does still remain, albeit in a crushed, hopeless state. But rumours have sprung up of a new village free of the empresses' corruption nestled in the mountains, named Dusk's Blossom.

If this is a war, what weapons can we use?

A few good outcomes have come about since Twilight's ascension, including the acceleration of pony technology. Equestria is very much in a Victorian like era, with steam and magic powered machines hitting the scene. This means that yes, there is guns, but nothing to the standard of what we have today. Think of old bayonet rifles and flintlock pistols, nothing too advanced. But be aware that swords and other bladed weapons are still the main choice of Equestria's military. Magic weapons have been developed too, with steam/magic powered blimps taking to the skies for aerial combat.

What are the factions we are fighting for?

I am going to say that you don't necessarily need a faction, but they go as follows:

The GEF, Grand Equestrian federation: This was founded shortly after the culling, and it's main role is to serve as Equestria's military backbone and police force. They mainly utilize the old ways of pony to pony combat, meaning swords, bows, lots of numbers, and powerful Unicorn magi, but do have a rifle force, and a blimp air force ready to deal out some damage from the skies. They also employ gryphons as elite aerial shock troopers, and Dragons for when the going gets really tough. Empress Twilight Sparkle also has her own personal bodyguard, comprised of elite Unicorn, pegasus and dragon soldiers, led by none other than Spike the dragon, who is sworn to give his life for his empress.

The RLF, Royal Liberation Force: An army of rebels who operate in secrecy in the Equestrian underground, these brave souls use guerilla warfare and unconventional tactics to outsmart the GEF. It is the oldest group of rebels the GEF has had to put up with, and the first to stand up against the new empress. It is a rag-tag group at best, comprised of hired mercenaries, former soldiers of the royal equestrian military from before the culling, and civilians who feel that it is time for a change. They fight with whatever they can get their hooves on, but focus a lot more on attack and guerilla tactics than the GEF.

As for your own faction, if you wish to create one, by all means do, as there are many other movements throughout the time of the revolution. If you do, you will have to explain their cause to battle, how they came to be, and if possible, what sorts of tactics and weapons they use.

Time for some applications!

Here is the basic layout, don't be afraid to add stuff if you think you need to.

Name: Your name dummy!

Age: How old are you? I will allow fillies and colts, but they will not be able to get into the nitty and gritty of the revolution.

Gender: As Professor Oak said, are you a boy or a girl?

Race: The races are Earth Pony, Pegasus, Unicorn, crystal versions of the previous three, Changeling, Zebra, Gryphon or Dragon. Please, no Alicorns.

Alignment: What faction do you support, if any? And if you are indeed in a faction, a rank would be nice too.

Place of Birth/Starting Location: Where does your character hail from?

Physical Appearance: What does your character look like? Small or tall? Any distinguishing features, maybe a scar or two? Nothing too crazy though.

Personality: Just who is your character? Are they shy and forgetful, or loud and clumsy? Perhaps they secretly are into pop music?

Cutie Mark (If available): Your special talent silly!

History (Back Story): Give us a quick, or indeed long, backstory of your character.

Well, that about does it from me.

If you have any questions, and I mean any, please don't hesitate to ask! Thanks all for reading, and I guess I hope to see all of your apps! :razz:

Here is an example for character applications, which will also serve as my main character. Be in mind though, I will be playing as Empress Twilight and Nocte as well, but they will only occasionally make appearances.

[colour=#282828]Name: Red Herring[/colour]

[colour=#282828]Age: About 31 in pony years.[/colour]

[colour=#282828]Gender: Stallion[/colour]

[colour=#282828]Race: A regular unicorn.[/colour]

[colour=#282828]Alignment: His cause is that of the RLF, and he serves as the military general of it, second only to Nocte.[/colour]

[colour=#282828]Place of Birth/Starting Location: Red was born in Canterlot and has lived there his whole li[/colour]fe, even after it's conversion to Equinia after the Culling.

[colour=#282828]Physical Appearance: Red is an [/colour][colour=#282828]average height, lightly built stallion, with a bland, grey coat and long, unkempt crimson red mane. He will normally be wearing a dark grey military style overcoat and smart, black fedora.[/colour]

[colour=#282828]Personality: Red is a stallion of mixed persona's, although his normal demeanour will be that of a charming, quick thinking rogue who can talk his way out of most situations. While he is normally sober, he has been known to drink when he is sad, depressed, happy, or many other moods. This drinking problem will not cut from his razor sharp wit though, as although he will not seem like much, he hides a fierce intellect and is a nimble fighter when provoked. He is a brilliant tactician, and is to make decisions in an instant, although he will not leave a single pony behind, even when it means going against orders.[/colour]

[colour=#282828]Cutie Mark: His cutie mark is a red lensed magnifying glass, signifying his great love and skill for detective work.[/colour]

[colour=#282828]History (Back Story): [/colour][colour=#282828]From the time when he was a foal, the world always presented Red Herring with more questions than answers. Always the smart-flank, his demeanour often got him into trouble, earning him the title of one of his town's most disliked young colts. Being an orphan though, there wasn't much more that he could do. He moved out of his orphanage and joined the equestrian military force as soon as he could, and for a while made a living as a sergeant who was hated by his men. One crucial mistake cost him his career though, as being drunk while manning a vital sentry post isn't the best of decisions, and was dishonourably discharged. Soon after though, he donned the iconic fedora and began his career as a successful detective, solving case after case. Soon enough, Twilight became princess of the stars, and crime seemed to die down, something he wasn't fo[/colour][colour=#282828]nd of. But slowly, cases came up of alleged guards being seen murdering civilians. But try as he might, he just couldn't figure them out, and the cases were closed. Soon he was approached by a hooded mare, who told him not to give up. But her warning was too late, as two days after the meeting the culling began. Red then finally figured out Twilight's descent into madness. As the terrible truth struck him hard, he developed his split persona's, and his drinking problem came about. About two months after the culling though, the strange mare returned to him again,this [/colour]time revealing her name; Nocte. She devised to him a plan, and the RLF was born. He now resides as the public head of the RLF, keeping Nocte's existence a secret.

I'm going to have 8 slots available, with up to 3 characters per person. I may boost it up to twelve if I receive enough interest though.

  1. Free!
  2. Free!
  3. Free!
  4. Free!
  5. Free!
  6. Free!
  7. Free!
  8. The British Brony (Red Herring, Nocte, Twilight Sparkle)

Name: Pyro Blaze

Age: 21 in pony years

Gender: Male

Species: Unicorn

Alignment: Pyro is part of the RLF, working as a sort of special agent.

Place of birth/Starting location: Born in Canterlot, moved to Ponyville as a teen. He moved back to Canterlot after Twilight took over.

Physical Description: Pyro is tall and well muscled, with a pure white body and medium-length, fiery hair and tail. He is always wearing his sunglasses unless he cannot see with them on.

Personality: Pyro is normally calm and level-headed, but can be angered pretty easily. He masks his anger well though, only those closest to him realize he is angry most of the time. The anger is obvious when he confronts an enemy because he feels no need to hold it back. He is nice to those that are nice back, as long as they are not an enemy. Feircly loyal and determined, he will not give up on his missions or his teamates, when he has them. Pyro is a fierce fighter, focussing more on power than anything else, but still is quite fluid with his strikes.

Cutie Mark: He has a red and orange fireball, signifying his love for and skill with fire.

History: As a child, Pyro was a laid-back kid. Almost nothing could faze him. Despite his obvious dislike of it, Pyro did quite well in school and even went to a great magic school. Until he discovered his pyromancy, that is. After he discovered his talent, he was moved to a more specialized school that taught him how to better control his powers, even in the heat of battle. Unkown to Pyro and his parents, the school was secretly training him for and steering him towards being a part of a special forces unit they were creating inside the guards. Pyro was happy in his job as a soldier, until he found out about Twilight's madness and the things she had done. After finding out, Pyro quit the guard and went out to look for ponies in trouble that he could help. Later that year, Pyro heard about the RLF and what they stood for. Agreeing with their veiws, Pyro decided to join them in their fight against the Empress, and now works as a type of special forces or commando type soldier.

Personality: Midnight loves battle, something she just can’t understand, but she loves adreline, and battle is full of it. She is reckless, often doing before thinking. In battle, she’s confident and enjoys annoying the ponies she fights. Her nature is purely reckless, she knows this and knows that it’ll one day be her end when she meets someone worth to beat her, but that day is not today. It’ll never happen.

Cutie Mark (If available): Her cutie mark is a short dagger, dripping slightly with blood. Her signature weapon.

History (Back Story): Midnight originally worked for Luna as an Luna Guard, but once she heard of Twilights revolusion against the regal sisters, she knew that with Twilight in command, there would be battles, fights, war. So she became a double agent, supplting Twilights’ forces with arms, information, ect.

On that day, Midnight and a small group of guards betrayed Luna outright, holding back reinforcements that could have tipped the battle. She had no regrets, for now she had everything she wanted. War, fighting and power.
