Roll to Pony (again): Let's see what happens...

Hello and Welcome everypony to another game of Roll to Doge Pony Roleplaying! Since Argembarger's game has filled up, I am seeing if there is enough interest to start a second game. Can't say I've ever done much like this, but let's do it. For the most part (by that I mean everypart) I will be copying Argembarger's rules which are....

Argembarger wrote:

It works in rounds. During each round, everyone posts what it is they're doing. That's it. Then I roll a dice for everyone to see how you did.
Please make an attempt to post once per day. I will move the game along at my own convenience, probably at some point in the evening. If I see everyone has submitted their turn early, I will try to compile the turn early. If it has been a while and someone has not submitted a turn, I take control, most likely making you do nothing.
Some versions of RTD are reasonable. The one I enjoy the most is not.
Results table:
1: Crippling failure. Not only did you not succeed at what you were doing, but some other unfortunate side-effects occurred! ooooooh
2: Failure. You didn't succeed at what you were doing at all.
3: Meager failure. You very nearly succeeded, but you didn't. Them's the breaks.
4: Meager success. You barely scratched your way through whatever it was you were doing.
5: Success. Good job! You made your momma proud.
6: Intense Success. You so completely dominated whatever it was you were doing that no one can possibly predict what will happen now. It could be spectacular or terrible. But it will almost certainly be hilarious.
All of that handles all of the uncontested checks. If you try to do something that is opposed, such as combat, or stealing from someone, or anything that involves some other living thing that might not want you to do it, then I simply roll dice for both of you and decide who wins.
Anything you do that would require even a little bit of concentration or effort requires a roll. Casual speech and normal movement does not require a roll, for instance. Trying to improvise a poem on the spot requires a roll, as does dancing.
Physics is altogether questionable, but is still somewhat in place. For instance, unless you're a pegasus or know a flying spell, you can never fly, no matter how high you roll. Etc.
========CHARACTER CREATION========
Simply post the following.
Name: what yer name is
Race: Earth Pony, Unicorn, Pegasus.
Cutie Mark: What it is, and what your special talent is. Can/May provide bonuses. My discretion.
Description: Whachoo look-a like. Personality. Roleplaying crap.

========OTHER THINGS TO KNOW========
Race matters.
Pegasus: y'all can fly. Normal flight doesn't require a roll.
Unicorn: Telekinesis. Range: within reason, I decide what's 'reasonable'. You can let yourself have some other kind of magic, if you make it your cutie mark. If it's overpowered, I'll make it /very/ easy to fail. Twilight fucks spells up all the time.
Earth Pony: y'all are dependable. Y'all have a 33% chance for +1 on your roll. If y'all get a +1, y'all don't have to worry about negative effects from rolling a 6.
Cutie mark matters.
Mary Sue bullshit at your own risk. If you are better at something than the Elements of Harmony, expect me to fuck with you mercilessly.
Last but not least, everything is decided by me. I don't have time to entertain appeals and arguments. If you want a serious game, go play something else.
Roll to Dodge is primarily for laughs.

=======================================================================================

Now then: I'm looking for 4 ponies to start this up
I will take up to 6 ponies total to start, but may allow others to be added later if I feel I can handle it.
willing to make it a little more complex if the RPer's request it, maybe add a stat/flaw or something.

Well here we go, the First round will begin when 4 brave equestrians have stepped forward!

Re: Roll to Pony (again): Let's see what happens...

Can I roll to pony twice? Or is that TOO MUCH PONY??

Edit: Actually, what I should probably do is wait for everyone else who isn't in the other game to join, and then re-ask this question if there are still any open slots. So just ignore me for the moment.

Re: Roll to Pony (again): Let's see what happens...

Give people not involved in the first one until 10:00 pm EST (an hour or so before I get off work and would be able to write the first round starter), if there is open spots left I will add you in and the others in the first game are welcome to join! Feel free to post or PM me your second pony (if you are in Am's game) so I can add them if there is a spot.


Thanks for asking, I knew I was forgetting something

Well I feel enough time has elapsed for people. People from the first RP are now free to join in! I am however reserving 2 spots for 2 ponies who expressed interest in the First game but were unable to join, so I will be taking 3 more lucky adventurers smile

Guess I'll also join in this one for funsies.

Name: Supernova Smash (usually goes by Silly Frilly)
Male Unicorn Pony
Cutie Mark: a frilly pink dress
Physical Description: White coat, blonde mane, a bit like Prince Blueblood overall (in appearance only).  Features are somewhat feminine and are easily disguised as such.

Frilly (as he likes to be called) has a special talent for fashion design and makeup application, and likes to dress up as a mare.  Most ponies are unable to tell that he is in fact a colt.  Was born and raised to a family of masked wrestling ponies (thus his true name), and knows a few good moves, but usually detests fighting and will only use it as a last resort.

Re: Roll to Pony (again): Let's see what happens...

Round 0
And so it all begins

It is a bright summer morning in Equestria and The Friendship express has just pulled into the station in Canterlot from Ponyville. The Royal wedding was several months ago and things have returned to normal. As the train pulls up there are many royal guards waiting at the station for the disembarking passengers.

DANCE FEVER

You are in one of the UPPER BUNKS of the SLEEPER CAR and are awakened when the train comes to a stop. You hear the QUIET MURMURINGS of ponies below

CUPCAKEITY

You are in the DINING CAR enjoying a quick breakfast before you depart. As the train pulls into the station you see all the GUARDS through the window.

VICTORY STAR

You are in the PASSANGER CAR anxious for the train to stop, all you want to do it GET OFF the train to DELIVER your AMAZON PACKAGE.

SILLY FRILLY

You are in the BATHROOM getting yourself ready for your stay in CANTERLOT as you feel the train begin to slow beneath your hooves.

Re: Roll to Pony (again): Let's see what happens...

ROUND 1

"Pieces in motion tend to stay in motion"

VICTORY STAR

< EXIT the train

<Result= 5 (Success)


You continue to sing your jaunty delivery tune as you make your way down the aisle. You begin to contemplate why they call it an aisle, and in turn begin to write an “aisle walking song”

♪ ♪ dododo.. walking down an aisle… dedede… seats on both sides… ♪ ♪ ♪

As you come back to reality, you are standing at the EXIT to the train, you see the other passengers forming into lines and shuffling forward as they are checked over by a unicorn guard and then allowed to pass through. As you survey the scene you can’t help but wonder…

“Does a turtle’s shell grow with its body, or does it have to find a new one that fits as it gets older?”


DANCE FEVER

< CLIMB DOWN

< Result = 1 (Crippling Failure)


Curiosity getting the best of you and knowing that you will need to get off of the train soon anyways. You turn and begin to descend from the bunk rump first.

However, your back right hoof becomes tangled in your blanket, and in your struggle to free it you unbalance yourself and go tumbling over and land on the ground.

The rest of the blanket falls over you like a net, causing you to panic and start thrashing about in your confines, managing to kick yourself several times.

Finally you are able to free yourself.

[[HEALTH -1]]


<Listen in on conversation

< Result = 2 (Failure)


As you finally escape from your fabric prison. You look around your car, and you see two mares standing and staring dumbfounded at you. You grin sheepishly as your face turns red as a ripe apple while the mares walk out giggling to themselves.

DANCE FEVER is EMBARRASSED and BRUISED, but ready to keep going.


SILLY FRILLY


< Exit the train while staying classy

< Result= 2 (Failure)



You take one last look in the mirror and then turn and exit the RESTROOM.

Your makeup is perfect, your dress divine, your shoes the epitome of super fabulousity!! Today is turning out to be a great day.

About halfway to the EXIT you feel a rumbling in your lower stomach and like a true mare of class you hold it in and look all around, luckily seeing nopony in sight.

You proceed to let out a very unladylike noise from a very unladylike place. As you sigh in relief two young colts peek their heads over a bench near the front of the car. They look at you wide-eyed, then at each other, and begin to LAUGH THEIR LITTLE PONY BUTTS OFF!!

You try to regain your composure as you walk forward pass them and out of the train, the colts laughter and the sound of them imitating you still ringing in your ears.

AS you EXIT the Train you see the other ponies standing in a SINGLE FILE LINE and being INSPECTED.


CUPCAKEITY

<Steal ALL the cupcakes!

< Result = 3 (Meager Failure)



Knowing that having all of these CUPCAKES and learning the secrets that they hold could aid in your TOTALLY LEGITIMATE RESEARCH

You lay out a TABLECLOTH on the ground and begin to pile as many CUPCAKES as possible into it and tie it off into a bundle.

As you pick up the CUPCAKE BUNDLE you hear the DOOR on the far end of the car begin to open.

You PANIC, drop you bundle of sweet, sugary, research material, run to the opposite end of the DINING CAR, and hide under a TABLE as you hearing hoofstepss moving in YOUR DIRECTION.

LUNAR SHINE

You WAKE up in the BAGGAGE CAR of the train, laying on top of an open crate of STETSON HATS. There are several empty CIDER MUGS on the floor and not a memory of the last 12 hours in your head.

It takes you a few minutes, but you finally realize.... you are on a train, and the train has stopped...
