"The blizzard has ended, but all that remains is a frozen wasteland. Ponies all over are forced to flee to the new land of Equestria and leave their old prejudices behind. With the hope of starting over in this lush untouched land, you have made yourself at home in the town of Trottingham. It is a simple farming village, the first Settlement made in Equestira. Despite the overpopulation and constant refugees flowing in and out, the quality of life is so much better now it's hard to complain."
Hey everyone, Here is the recruitment thread for the Pony Pbp! The setting is a few years after the founding of Equestria. Luna and Celestia are not yet around and the Ponies are just getting used to their new homes. But this new land is untouched and ripe with adventure!
I've got two players from my RL game currently and I am looking for 4 more players for the game. I'd like there to be a mix of all three pony races, and preferably I'd like two of each race.
Beyond that I only ask that you have a reason for wanting to protect the people of Trottingham and a thirst for adventure!
I'm going to put a close date for character submissions for Saturday night August 4th at 11:59 pm. So about a week.
The game rules and campaign rules are attached above. If you have questions about the game or need help feel free to ask.
I don't have a problem with the Noble edge, but if you take it, I'd like it detailed a little bit in your background. It's kinda like two edges in one, but it has a minor drawback too with dealing with noble responsibilities.
I'd rather not have anyone with the young hindrance because it significantly weakens the character and you won't be taken seriously buy adults. That being said, If you really want to be a filly I won't stop you.
I'm thinking this will be an adventurous campaign, like D&D meets ponies, or Daring Do, so your character will possibly be in serious danger regularly.
Got her mostly made but still need a cutie mark and a name, hmm...
Here she is so far, I will make an alias when I have settled on a name though,
Looks: black coat, white mane, purple eyes

Natural Magic- Unicorns can use magic, allowing them to cast cantrips and spells. All Unicorns start with the Magic Trick cantrip, plus an additional cantrip for each rank of Spellcraft they possess (you automatically gain new cantrips of your choice whenever this skill is raised). See the chapter on Magic for more information.

Her father, Oak Leaf, was the lord of a mid sized town. Her mother had died from the cold early on and her father, now knowing the cause of the winter, has trouble not blaming the pegasi and the earth ponies for it, though he would never openly state such. Because of this, her family was one of the last to leave their home and travel to Equestria. They currently stay in Trottingham while looking for a good place to found a new town which is planned on being named after her mother, Rhubarb.
She likes to make sketches to run cross country track. She also enjoys using using the change shape spell she snuck out her mother's library to change into a hawk and fly around to find inspiration for her sketches.
|GM Spugly Fuglet|
Name: Shepard Jeremiah Pie
Race: Earth Pony
Occupation: Rock Farmer
Cutie Mark: Boulder
Likes: Rocks, Racing, Roughing it outdoors
Dislikes: Bright colors, Loud noises, Unsupervised children
Physical Description: Light grey coat, dark grey mane with black streaks, square jaw with black mustache. Often wears a Straw hat (emergency rations) and occasionally smokes a corn cob pipe (also emergency rations)
Looks Good DarkLightHitomi. Does the Shapechanging have anything to do with your Special Talent? Shape Changing would be a hard cutie mark to come up with. I'm not worried about a map of Equestria at the moment.
Artthedarklord is one of the guys from my RL game. Fluff looks good, Now all you have to do is actually make the character.
GM Spugly Fuglet, If you want to make a rainbow dash clone, that's fine, but put in a little something that makes it yours. And a different name would be nice, Even if it is as corny as Rainbow Flash or something.
Testing Some Symbols for the Card Draw. Let me Know if you can see the suits:
|GM Spugly Fuglet|
I think a good name would be Starlight or Fancy Flight. Though a cutie mark I think will be about her sketches, perhaps a pencil with wings.
I somehow missed this post. A drawing cutie mark would be neat too. Heck, the trappings for some of your spells could even be drawing with your horn or something like that. Draw a cat with your horn, *Poof* Your a cat! You might not want to screw up your drawings if you do something like this! (jk)
Ok, so far it looks like we got...
DarkLightHitomi: Nightflight MintLeaf, Unicorn
Artthedarklord: Shepard Jeremiah Pie, Earth Pony
Spugly Fuglet: Higgledy Piggledy, Pegasus
Dan: ???, ??? (other guy from my RL game)
We got 2 spots open still. Anyone else care to join?
Nightflight MintLeaf (DarkLightHitomi)
Shepard Jeremiah Pie (Artthedarklord)
Higgledy Piggledy(Spugly Fuglet)
You three are diffidently in. Here is the discussion thread.
Ok, I'm going to give more time for others to join in, as Nightflight is the only fully made character up at this moment.
There are three, Totally Available and Totally Open spots for this game available. And one of them Can Be Yours, ABSOLUTELY FREE!
Seriously though, I'm expecting one of my RL gaming friends to hopefully show up still, but life is a bit hectic for him at the moment, so he might be slow going here.
If anyone is holding back due to the system, I am willing to make a simple character for ya and you can fill in the fluff. I'm still new to the system too, but it is a really simple one to use, so it shouldn't take long to get the jest of it once we start.
If there are any questions, feel free to ask.
Things are going to be really busy for me this week. I got NaPoWriMo (actually, Camp NaNoWriMo, but they overlap), two new players to introduce to my weekly game, and a friend's story to review. If there's still room at that point, I'm totally in (though I'm guessing that might not fly, so whatever).

You can probably be a member of any one of them, though I'm no GM. We have two pegasi, two earth ponies, and I think two unicorns (though only two pegasi, one earth pony and one unicorn have entered the game yet). I think almost everybody here is a newbie to the game system, so that shouldn't be a problem--they're pretty simple, I think.
I spent some time going over the rules of Savage Worlds and seem to have gotten the jist of character creation for this game. Not sure how the abilities work completely but I'd need to practice some.
I have two characters I had mentioned to the GM in a PM
Hay Bale: A Farm boy earth pony looking for adventure and excitement.
TriCorn(Name may change): A unicorn whose magical gift revolves around the natural elements of the world and he wishes to study them further and put his knowledge to the test.
Depending on GM's response, I will elaborate more on either of these characters. I had intended to use them in a FanFic a while back but this is more fun. Hope I get to use one.
Opening up recruitment for 2, possibly 3 players. We are out a unicorn, and a pegisus. We might need to replace an earth pony too, but I'm giving that player some time to post and continue.
If your interested, feel free to post, ask me some questions and check out the ooc and gameplay board to get a feel of the game.
