So, this is probably just going to be another RP that I start and get board and quit after the first week, but I came up with this idea a few days ago and though that you guys might find it fun.
Basically, this wont be a traditional RP where you add/create characters in however you like, and make them do what ever to fit in with the storyline. Instead, you'll use the character generators below to determine everything from how your character appears, to what role they will play in the story.
The 'mane' idea for this is to be a sort of writing exercise because you will not be able to pick and choose how your character will fit in the world, rather these decisions will be made for you and you will have to adapt to what ever that will mean (i.e. you may end up with a character who is completely the opposite of your normal RP characters, figure out how to use them in a constructive or 'constructive' way).
I think I just did a horrible job of explaining that, so please don't hesitate to ask questions. Also once I have and idea of everyone's characters, I will work on constructing a storyline. Anyways, before I get to the character generators, there are a few guidelines that I'd like to through out there:
Everyone is limited to 1 character
Please do not put up a stink about anything on the character generators, you get what you get
Don't be afraid to make 'plain Jane' characters, it wouldn't be realistic if everyone had crazy coat markings
Make sure to note the position description list that is placed after the rank generator. A few of the ranks have special requirements
(I will periodically update as the story progresses)
During the rein of Nightwing the destroyer, Anok was reduced to chaos. Seemingly hundreds were killed by the day, and there was no end in sight to the madness. Then one day, the curls of silver smoke no longer dominated the sky, and the destruction came to an abrupt halt.
But what had happened? No one knew. All that was known was that Nightwing had vanished. Terrified that he may return, the steeds of Anok remained in hiding for many moons. But as time passed, and there were no more sightings of the feared black stallion, these pegasi began to venture out.
One by one, they began to group together. One of these such groups rallied around a mare that became known as Starcloud -- a mare renowned for her strength and courage despite being born unable to fly.
Will this small group of survivors manage put the shattered pieces of their lives back together? Or will there be no hope for those left....
