If you really needed to, you could set it in a universe where the mane 6 don't exist.

Agreed. If it's set in the future, arguably they're not there by default. And there's any number of different ways to do something post apocalyptic and still feel Equestrian.

Am I the only one who would find a game of political machinations interesting? A game where the players play, essentially, the game of thrones, trying to further their political causes while...well, surviving in the cut-throat world of politics.

I haven't seen any Game of Thrones, but that sounds interesting to me.

Urgh. Another idea that I kind of really want to do.

Battlestar: Equestria

In more detail... I like the whole 'society on the run' thing, and the Changelings ability to shapeshift kind of makes them obvious expy's for Cylons. I'm sort of tinkering with ideas for background or set-.up right now. There was an idea mentioned earlier in this thread about magic-powered sci-if, which might work well for the setting; unicorn magic to create a breathable at,osphere, for instance, or supped up Pegasi abilities to let them be the Viper Pilots of the setting.

Another silly campaign idea I would love to run if I weren't already doing two: High school marching/concert band. It sounds silly, but I think it would make a wonderful low-combat slice of life. Sort of like a high school SoL, but with music and social rejects.

Just the crazy romantic shenanigans of the Disney world trip, the fact that everybody hates the drum section, that one dude in the color guard and the "Rivalry" with the school whose band is three times their size.

Eh, I'm probably just nostalgic. But I think it would be a fun RP heavy slice of life.

That fluctuates pretty massively based on school, actually.

This is true. Hmmm...the fact that everyone hates every other section even though they all sign each others yearbooks with stupid crap at the end.

Well in my school, everyone hated the band for being selfish showoffs that thought everyone at the football game was there to see them. And that During the national anthem, they should be the center of attention, and the Flag can just go stand off to the side somewhere.

I'd play if I got to be the JROTC antagonist.

Oooh. If I were gming I would totally be down for a PC antagonist. And I would also have a bunch of NPC antagonists within and without the band.

That...sounds like a crappy band. Like, were they any good to warrant an ego or were they purely full of themselves? At my high school many did go to the football games for the band but A) the band was actually good B) the football team really sucked and C) the band was actually pretty cool so they weren't trying to take over the game, just compliment it.

My band was 30 people, but we were decent for being bite sized. I was honestly the worst of us. See, our school had this big set of stairs in front of the football field, like 20 or 30 feet of stairs, and the band would march down them. One time I missed a step and me and my Bass clarinet fell the rest of the way down to the track. Good times.

My School was 5AAAAA, soall of our clubs were fairly recognized. Both our band and football team were big news. JROTC was pretty small, but we were still one of the best in the state. The band was decent enough, and simply only cared about being the ones everyone was watching, no matter the point of the event. My senior year, at the homecoming game, the band actually argued against leaving space in the middle of the field for the homecoming court to walk through, because it would interrupt their performance formation.

They didn't even NEED to be on the field when that was happening. They just were.

Random idea, might be totally broken. Wanderlust is supposed to be adaptable for any fantasy setting, right?

How about a. Fellowship of the Ring-style party, where each players builds a character based upon a different fantasy novel; so one person is playing a Tolkien-Elf, another is playing an Aes Sedai, someone else has Conan the Barbarian...

Basically, stretching the adaptability of Wanderlust to it's limits and seeing if it can cope... and in the process maybe recommending good series to each other. After all, if someone wants to play a race from a particular book, that might be a book worth checking out, right?

That sounds like either the sort of RP people talk about for years or a 20 car pileup level of disaster that people talk about for years. Anyway, personally I'm ten billion percent down.

Okay, so I had a dream. And I always follow the ideas of my dreams.

Basically, I reasoned, why not a playtest of Wanderlust's combat system? I call it, "The Last Stand of the Crystal Empire."

Okay, it could be Canterlot for all I care. Point is, the gates to a hostile realm have opened, and all sorts of monsters are pouring out to attack Equestria. As stalwart defenders of all stripes, the players must hold the line against the tide of monsters who threaten to destroy all they hold dear.

It'd basically be an all-combat campaign, designed, as I say, to give Wanderlust's combat system a trial by fire. Anyone game?

Was actually planning on GMing one of these but with a different setting/theme.

A maniacal game show.  Can't start it today since I got something else I need to work on.

Interesting... well, it'd probably be a bit much if both of us hosted our ideas at the same time, so I may wait on my own idea.

Color me intrigued. Especially as my own campaign is mostly RP.

Sea, Earth, Fire, Cloud.

Long ago, the four pony races lived together in harmony. Then, everything changed when the Avacorn attacked.

The Avacorn, the pony born who can master all elements, is meant to be a defender of the peace. But Avacorn Sol, who was one of the fire-nation unicorns, brought together an army of pony benders and non-pony warriors alike and waged war upon the world. 

It has been 100 years since the war first began. Rumor has it that Avacorn Sol died quietly in his sleep some years ago. However, rumor also has it that either he was powerful enough to cut off his line of reincarnation or that his men have been finding and destroying every new Avacorn born. Either way, a new one has yet to show themselves.

In the meantime, the world is at an uneasy stalemate, waiting for The Solar Army to begin it's attack again.


Fire nation: Mostly unicorns and dragons. Some minotaurs.
Water tribes: Nearly exclusively sea-ponies. Submarine cities in all but the poles.
Earth kingdom: Earth ponies, buffalo, diamond dogs and donkeys.
Air Nomads: Pegasi and griffins. A few dragons on the outside.

Avacorn: Current location/kingdom affiliation unknown save to the top brass of The Solar Army, if even them. The Avacorn is only an Alicorn while in avatar state. Otherwise they appear as a normal pony of their respective kingdom.

I can't GM this, but I'd love to play in it.
