Dragon's Feud: OOC

Post  A1C Bronymous on Tue Dec 08, 2015 9:53 pm

Canterlot
The Princess of Friendship, Twilight Sparkle, and the Elements of Harmony are in town for a Royal function, meeting with the other Princesses (including Princess Mi Amore Cadenza and her husband, Twilight’s brother, Prince Shining Armor). All is calm and normal in Equestria, as far as they are aware, until a Messenger interrupts the meeting with an urgent message. Princess Celestia is informed that the Dragon’s are migrating again, but not along their usual path, causing some alarm among nearby towns. At the same time, Twilight receives a letter from her assistant, Spike, who remained at the castle in Ponyville:


From the Desk of  Spike the Dragon, Attache and Personal Assistant to Princess of Friendship, Twilight Sparkle-

TWILIGHT!

DRAGONS! MAYHEM! CASTLE! DISCORD!

HEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELP!!!!!!



-Your faithful assistant,
Spike the Dragon

After a quick conference with the Princesses, it is decided that Twilight and her friends should immediately return to Ponyville to try and decipher the problem.

Which they do, almost immediately upon returning to her crystalline castle... or at least, where it should be. Instead, they find a hole in the ground, where the entire building was seemingly uprooted and taken from. Along with the hole, they also find an impatient looking Discord, who can’t wait to explain the situation to them....




Dragon's Feud is a Play by Post game run in Pony Tales: Abilities. The party will be 4-6 players, who will operate as a task force for Princess Twilight Sparkle, assisting her defeat the Dragon Menace that has descended over Ponyville.

More of the plot and backstory will be revealed when the game starts, but for now, keep in mind that this will be a show-toned game, lighthearted and humorous- think "Over a Barrel" level of conflict. The party will be diplomancing, sabotaging, and/or fighting, but it will be mostly cartoon violence. Death, such as it is, will not exist- instead, ponies will simply be "Defeated" and sent to the hospital to recuperate. Mechanically speaking, the "Defeated" and "Dead" states in combat will merge, bumping to -20 hp. If you hit that, your character is out of the game, and a new one can be rolled up.

The main antagonists in the game will be Teen dragons and Diamond Dogs, so there probably won't be any character of those races in the party, without a very entertaining reason. Otherwise, the plan is for the party to be mostly ponyville citizens, but there's no telling who else has heard of the Princess' plight and came to volunteer their services. (I won't go as hard on character concepts as I did in my last game, I'm going for entertaining over sensical- just keep it reasonable).

Final note, the party will be starting at level 5. Too many games start at one and never get beyond 3 or 4, so we'll start from 5 and hopefully, depending on pace, level up fairly quick.

Sign me up please. Will be pulling out my Enduring Weather Crafter build for this. Flavor will be coming along shortly, but I expect it'll be pretty basic...

EDIT: Boreal Wind is gonna need a lot of work...

I'm most definitely interested. I am, however, new to the system. If that's a problem, please let me know. Otherwise, I'm working on rolling up a character right now for review. ^^

Oh lord, I forgot Untraceable exists. Please don't spam it on every NPC, that's one of the most annoying things in the game.

Finally went through all the rules and threw together a character. Hopefully I got it right!

Unfortunately, I'm new to the forum so apparently I'm not allowed to post links yet, so you'll have to add the colon slash slash in front of the link yourself. Sorry about that! I'll fix it in an edit once I'm able to do links.

I'm actually probably going to drop it, so no worries.

I completely missed this. Does this mean what I think it means?

EDIT 2: I do believe it does. I'm going to set Boreal aside for another time, and work on something else, I think.

Yeah, it's very odd, considering in the other thread Brony said he was gonna do the Ability system. We shall see I suppose...

Oh, wow, whoops. Sorry, yeah its Pony Tales, not Wanderlust. I'll fix it.

EDIT: Which is unfortunate, as it looks like Pumpkin Spice was made in Wanderlust.

Gah! Guess I'll spend some time tonight making a new character sheet for Pony Tales! Just to make sure I got this right, this is Pony Tales: Aspirations of Harmony?

New character sheet for Pumpkin Spice. Again, I can't post links, so you'll have to remove the space in the URL yourself. Sorry about that.

Got a character concept (abilities and destiny) worked out. Starting on the combat aspect and the background when I have the time.

As long as no one else posts interest, then it should be fine.

So, just to make things sure, is that including the three people who have posted interest (Bubblez, Demonu, and Myself), or not?

Demonu seems to be in the process of creating a sheet, so I'm counting him as the fourth player. That leaves 2 slots, and you and Bubblez as the only two interested. The two of you haven't mentioned any progress in making characters yet, which is why I didn't have you down as definite players.

On that note, here is the bare bones sheet for my character.

Only the abilities and combat build have been done.

I'm thinking of turning the character into something of an everyday and unremarkable klutz with low self-esteem ("een dutske" as we would say in Dutch) who one day discovers a series of self-help books written by a certain Iron Will.

Tl;dr average person with hidden talents he didn't even know he had.

The abilities and combat build are meant to reflect that. Backstory and customization will follow at a later point.

Am I the only one who found it amusing that Spike only was able to get out five descriptive words total, but managed to add all those E's to "help?" Bit like the "last words" scene from Monty Python and the Holy Grail...

Anyway, quarter 'till 2, while I'm supposed to be D&Ding with friends, but I'll examine the characters and attempt to come up with a totally un-serious concept later...
