Wanderlust: Equestrian Nights - Play By Post (Recruiting!)

Post  Crystalite on Tue Jul 08, 2014 10:40 pm

In Character Thread!

A lot of people have complained about how Wanderlust isn't very good for forums (Frankly, in my opinion the older ones aren't ideal either, but not the point) and how it isn't conducive to Pony games (I beg to differ) and how the developers have missed EVERYTHING (A product is never finished, give them a break people!)

So. Rather than take your word for it, I intend to run a game under the fledgling system and see if it flies.

Setting? Yes, this is a Pony Game! Primarily because I'm familiar with the setting, and am confident everyone else is too. As for exactly when and where, that'll be up to you guys, mostly - I'm not especially picky.

Plot? What plot? There is no plot yet. Once I have characters, I will be forming stories around them, based on what I feel the players want to do; I'm tired of seeing a plot made in advance and then watching it twist to fit what the players want to do. Characters first - THEN plot.

Speaking of characters. First off; I am only accepting four. No more, no less. I will not accept five; neither will I accept three, save that I then accept a fourth. Six is right out! But fret not - I anticipate a fair amount of player cycling, and I am also willing to start multiple groups if need be. Naturally, I will not be accepting the first four to roll in (probably.) Moreover, while I am sending some invites, I may not accept them either. So think carefully!

...Anyways. Skype is a MUST. Characters can be mostly what you want, provided it's not too outlandish or specific to another setting. Also, besides standard backstory and such, there's a set of things you will need to include on your character sheet called ICE, or In Character Excuses. What these are is a set of plans on what to do with your character under certain circumstances. They are, in order of importance:


  • Absence: What do I do if you, the player, can't or don't want to play for a while? This is how I can get your character out of the way, either for a little bit or permanently. You might want separate plans for both.
  • Ties: What does your character hold important outside of the immediate party? This can play into Absence, but also gives me material for adventures.
  • Resources: How does your character get the things they need? Whether it's food, shelter, tools, or information, I'd like to know where it's coming from. This will also impact your Ties, which in turn will impact the plot.


If you feel there are other odd circumstances to account for, let me know!

...God help me, I've gone mad.

I was happy... Until I noticed this was going to be a pbp... Don't think wanderlust will work at all with pbp. But maybe laters I'll feel upto joining this and make a sheet. While overall I dislike the new system... I do wanna try it out to see if it's really as bad as it looks at a glance. Also love the new skills and the combat features thing...

Another thing I forgot to mention...

When you make you character sheets, PM them to me! I really don't want to deal with people trying to "outdo" each other for the sake of spots. (Assuming it comes to that, which it probably won't, but we'll see.)

This actually looks pretty interesting, and seems like it'll be a pretty good game from the concept alone. Yeah, I guess I'll give a try at making a Wanderlust sheet for this.

If more than four people apply, will you make a wait list for those who didn't get in so that they can be the first in if someone drops out?

Absolutely. Like I said, I'm anticipating players cycling in and out periodically, and I may even make multiple groups and/or enforce a "take turns" policy.

A campaign based around players foremost? Now I simply have to submit my own character... assuming my ideas mesh well with the rest of the group's.

Meshing problems are exactly what the GM is for (Believe me, two people don't really need one.) It's also (partly) why I'm only keeping four players at a time; more than that have a very hard time agreeing on the same thing.

...uh, I'm having a weird time with the character sheet base. Can someone possibly convert it to the same kind of sheet as the PT sheets so that it's generally easier to use?

Sorry for the double post, but how long until you start revealing who got in or when OP goes up?

Jamming my foot in the door, because why not. I have an idea for a character, but zero to offer at the moment, so I'll PM you a character sheet when it exists.

A-OK with being somewhere on a wait list, for the record.

I have four sheets at the moment. I would like to see two more before I make decisions.

It is now Tuesday. If I don't get anything new by Friday morning, I will go ahead and post the sheets I have to allow some tweaking for versatility. I would like to get the IC thread up by the 25th, ideally sooner.

I have my idea hashed out, down to about 70% of the novice abilities, I just haven't written anything down because until last night I was woefully unprepared for the presentation I gave earlier today. I'll send the sheet to you later tonight.

I will be posting sheets tonight, and revealing my decisions. (I haven't quite made said decisions yet. Tpday is the final mulling-over.)

In the meanwhile: could everyone do me a huge favor and post your current time, so I can compare time stamps? This will make it easier to arrange Skype conversations as needed (I have a busy schedule, give me a break.)
