So... if we are in the mech, do we have our own utility talents as well? I mean, something like Nightwatch or Eagle Eye should still work, right?

I'll let that come up over the course of the story...

More or less, yes.

I think I'll aim for September 28 11:59 PM EST as the cutoff date for submissions. This will give plenty of time to see who's interested while also giving myself planning time.

Mjh6, I think you should put the actual unicorn racial traits and include what magic ability spellchild affects.

Not just that, the character needs background. Some sort of backstory is needed for a character to be even considered eligible for a spot.

One misconception I've noticed is that HorseMechs are still considered Companions. Thus, one who uses Specialist to get "even" stats would be all 5s. The mechs are running off of a different scaling than the ponies so even one with 3 in a physical stat is still quite powerful.

"How does a team of five players fight as HorseTron since it's a singular entity?"

Good question. When the team forms HorseTron, they will still use their individual builds for most of the fight. I'll probably create some sort of passive buff for them to differentiate between fusion and the mechs fighting alone. The end of the battle will have a specialized super attack to finish off a villain if the team chooses to use it.



Players won't start with their mechs but will find them very early on in the story. For those having difficulty fleshing out their characters can try using Dan's stickied thread for ideas.

So, now that Steady-Hooved and Focused Evolution are now Virtue's, is the rules with them changed?

Also, you said the mech's can have any other utility talent right?

The problem with doing this is that the pony is too far to the right for my liking and I have no idea how to shift them more into the middle.

Yes.  Actually making a bit of a major shift in restrictions.  Both are allowed if character goals/backstory can justify them.  Virtue of Genetics is still in a weird place though until it gets its new name.

Going to open up custom created builds with some caveats.  While it can be different than the book races, it has to be a sentient race from the show (AKA no hippogriffs).  Almost thinking of allowing non-human G1 races since I'll be not so subtly using parts of G1 in the campaign anyway.  Stairc's questionnaire is now more of a requirement than a suggestion since I'd really like to get into the character's heads, though you can PM me instead of publicly post if you want to keep those parts of the backstory secret.

Also, you said the mech's can have any other utility talent right?
Yes.  Some stuff may not be feasible but that'll be worked out for specific utilities.

The problem with doing this is that the pony is too far to the right for my liking and I have no idea how to shift them more into the middle.
Ooooohhh, that.  I believe the part of the program that allows you to do poses also allows you to re-position their place on the screen.  There's also the option to use something like GIMP to crop the image.  Worst case scenario, post the pony image and someone else can help you with cropping/centering it.

Okay, good to know!

Guess it'll make my character easier to play...

Yes.  Some stuff may not be feasible but that'll be worked out for specific utilities.
What about Companion?

I see... thanks for the advice!

Unlikely since the mech is already a Companion of sorts as it is they explicitly have a non stacking rule. What would you be using it for?

A smaller mech that would serve at the combined mech's main weapon?

That sounds more like flavor for the combat build than an extra companion. Plus, extra Companions means even more to have to stat out and keep up with.

Well, that's the role they would play during combat. The extra companion would be used as a messenger, a communication unit.

1) What makes your character get out of bed in the morning?

To explore the world and seek his place in it.

2) What keeps your character awake at night?

That he won't find a place where he belongs.

3) What would your character dive into fire to obtain.

Anybody.

4) What does your character think he or she wants more than anything?

A place where he belongs.

5) What does your character actually want more than anything?

Companions.

6) Who is the most important person in your character’s life? Why? Describe the most important moment in your character’s relationship with that person.

His father, because he was the one that taught him how to keep moving on and how to help others without detriment to himself. The most important moment in their relationship was when he turned up at the town that Sky Wolf lived after his mother passed away.

7) What is the most important place in your character’s life? Why? Describe the most important moment your character ever spent in that place.

His home town, as it is where he was born, and the place where his parents were buried. His most important moment's was when he visited after his father had been lay to rest next to his mother, drawing strength from them to continue onwards.

8)How would you summarize your character in 1 sentence?

A wanderer seeking his place in the world.

9) What do you, as a player and artist, hope to gain by playing *this* character?

I hope to gain the ability to be a leader, as well as have a arc of a character discovering his place in the world.

10) What's a distinctive visual feature that makes your character stand out? Such as a vicious scar across a man's throat that makes him talk in a rasping voice, or the emblem of a white lion set into his ever-present armor.

His white hat, with a winged wolf on the top.

11) How are your values connected to your character’s values?

Sky Wolf helps other's when he can, like myself. He also values kindness, honesty, generosity and reliability.

12) What secret would your character least like the world to know?

He crushes on nearly every female he meets.

14) How are at least two ways your character might change by the end of the campaign? For example, playing a dark character that develops guilt and seeks to make amends (redemption plot), playing a young innocent excited for adventure that could end up disillusioned (maturation plot), or a character numbed by loss that learns to trust friendship again (resurrection plot).

Sky Wolf could either find a place that he belongs and settles down, or finds companions willing to travel with him.

15) Why do you, as a player, want to play in this campaign? What are your favorite parts of roleplaying?

Because it'll be fun, exploring a new character, fighting in a giant mech! And my fav part is all of it!

Feel free to submit.  I added a hefty entry time so those interested get time to plan rather than just being whoever shouts first.  What were your concerns about Sweet and Elite?

As far as Leader submissions, all have the potential to be Lancers to another Leader pending on who all enters.  Also, can't see your build Fury but I'd much rather wait until the background and such is done anyway.

Most characters from the show won't directly appear in the campaign.  Some side characters might show up in differing roles and I may pull characters from other parts of the franchise since I'm pretty open about being a G1 fan.    Mane 6 won't exist and neither will Celestia and Luna.  The latter two are interesting since that means the throne is open.  I may fill it with an NPC but it's also possible for a player with Sweet and Elite to be the overruling prince/princess of Equestria.  It's a double edge sword in some ways but it is an option.
.
Hand me that double edged sword over there.

I do hope he gets the crown. It'll make for awesome RPing!

BTW, even with the questionnaire filled in, I need to put in Sky Wolf's background, don't I?

Questionnaire Diamond Dust

Post  mjh6 on Sun Sep 15, 2013 11:59 pm

1) What makes your character get up in the morning?
The fact that its a brand new day and anything could happen.

2) What keeps your character up at night?
The worry that he isn't ever going to be a hero and isn't helping anyone.

3) What would your character dive into fire to obtain?
He would probably dive into fire for anyone.

4) What does your character want more than anything?
To be a hero and protect all of Equestria.

5) What does your character actually want more than anything?
To be of use to others.
6) Who is the most important person in your character's life? Why? Describe the most important moment in your character's relationship with this person?
His little sister Golden Bit. The two of them spent much more time with each other than their parents, and she fully supports his desire to go out on his own. The day he left, she told him to go out and become a hero, a promise which he took a bit more seriously than she intended.

7) What is the most important place in your character’s life? Why? Describe the most important moment your character ever spent in that place.
Manehatten Preparatory School for Young Unicorns. It was there where Diamond Dust saw a bunch of older students harassing a first year and tried to intervene.He was partially successful (in that the bullies turned to him and stopped bothering their first victim) and he received his cutie mark, inspiring him to protect others from harm.

Cool How would you summarize your character in 1 sentence?
An enthusiastic, naive wannabe hero.

9) What do you, as a player and artist, hope to gain by playing *this* character?
I hope to gain more experience role-playing, and playing someone so enthusiastic would be a new challenge.

10) What's a distinctive visual feature that makes your character stand out? Such as a vicious scar across a man's throat that makes him talk in a rasping voice, or the emblem of a white lion set into his ever-present armor.
Diamond Dust has a burn scar on his left foreleg he got from his cutie mark incident. He has another light scar on his cheek he got when he was little trying to catch a knocked over vase that he ended up accidentally breaking with his magic anyway.

11) How are your values connected to your character’s values?
He believes in the importance of helping others over everything, something I appreciate.

12) What secret would your character least like the world to know?
He flunked out of the Academy for the Royal Guard in less than a year.

13) What is the most important organization to your character’s life? Why? Describe the most important moment in your character’s relationship with that organization. Some possibilities include a church, a guild or a political council. Feel free to create the organization yourself, or use one of the existing organizations within the world (information on that will be included in the campaign options).
The Academy for the Royal Guard.It was the focus of his life for several years, and he was devastated when it was clear he just didn't have the proper temperament to be part of the Guard.

14) How are at least two ways your character might change by the end of the campaign? For example, playing a dark character that develops guilt and seeks to make amends (redemption plot), playing a young innocent excited for adventure that could end up disillusioned (maturation plot), or a character numbed by loss that learns to trust friendship again (resurrection plot)
He might grow to learn what actual heroism is like, and how it doesn't necessarily only involve directly fighting bad guys and protecting the innocent. He could also become less naive, and learn when ponies are just trying to take advantage of him.

15) Why do you, as a player, want to play in this campaign? What are your favorite parts of roleplaying?
Because the idea of combining mlp with power rangers ( which I'm most familiar with) sounds fun, really cool, and oddly appropriate. I guess my favorite part of roleplaying would be trying to balance what I want to do, and what my character wants.
