My Little Pony - L'amicizia è magica The Great Unrest RP

NocturnalMirage posted on Jun 26, 2014 at 07:23AM
If you look outside the window, what do you see? Peace, harmony, friendship... such things the new generations take for granted.

Of course, Equestria wasn't always the utopia as it is today. Let me take thee on a journey into the long past...

Before the birth of Celestia, before the seed of the Tree of Harmony sprouted, the three tribes - the unicorns, earth ponies and pegasi - put aside their differences and formed the united nation of Equestria. Gain was plentiful and ponykind prospered.

Then a new race emerged. The power of all three tribes united in these winged, horned ponies, who called themselves alicorns. They possessed the strength of the earth ponies, the flying skills of the pegasi and the magical abilities of the unicorns. It was only a matter of time until they took their place at the top of the hierarchy. On that day, Equestrian society took an unexpected turn...

Countless decades have passed by, and the years of abundance slowly faded away. The balance between the three tribes was disrupted. The alicorns remained unreachable for the common ponies, consulting the future of the nation behind the closed gates of their stronghold. Meanwhile the unicorn nobility plundered all the resources with the help of the highly trained warrior class: the pegasi.

The earth ponies soon found themselves at the bottom of the hierarchy; they were nothing more but peasants, slaves who were toiling tirelessly day and night, only to let the unicorns and pegasi enjoy the fruits of their labor. As humble spirits, the earth ponies let the rich take advantage of their strength and farming skills for years, but it still wasn't enough. Because there was a dark void in the souls of the old ones... a void that filled their hearts with an everlasting craving for more.

Very soon, the last drop will splash into the sea of suppressed rage and the deeds of the earth ponies will determine the fate of Equestria... this is the time of the Great Unrest.

*** ***


- No godmodding (nopony's all-powerful and/or invincible, not even Celestia herself)

- No puppeteering (please refrain from taking control of someone else's character without a permission)

- No killing each other's characters without permission.

- No Deus ex Machina (a conflict cannot be magically solved/made disappear by a simple flash of a horn.)

- There is no character/person limit,


- And most importantly: HAVE FUN!

*** ***

In order to join with your OC, please fill out this short character sheet below!

Bio: (optional)

*** ***

Useful tips:

- Okay, so this RP takes place in medieval Equestria. Therefore, the social structure reflects that as well. The hierarchy is the following:

- Kings/Queens/Royalty (Alicorns, max. 3)
- Lords/Ladies (Unicorns)
- Knights (Pegasi)
- Peasants (Earth Ponies)

- Please keep in mind, that the race of the character you join with will determine his/her role in the society and your place in the hierarchy, so choose wisely!

- As I mentioned earlier, there can be a maximum of 3 alicorn characters in this RP, because basically, they have all the power and resources. Therefore I must ask those who wish to play with an alicorn OC, to use this power responsibly and don't send entire armies to a bloodbath for example.

- The RP gives you an opportunity to control squadrons, even armies if the plot-line allows it. There will be massive confrontations, I can assure you.

- This RP will require a lot of teamwork from all of the players, because there will be many situations where you'll have to follow the chain of command. Think of it as a big war game. Jade, Wind and I will be in command of the earth pony forces and we'll stop at nothing to change the social structure. Mu ha ha! :D

I shall use Landslide for this role.

Name: Landslide
Gender: Stallion
Race: Earth pony
Personality: wise, contemplative, humble, introvert, tight lipped, religious, traditional, determined and nearly impossible to make him mad. But once he's angry, he's unstoppable.
Bio: Landslide is a relic of the past. Despite his appearance, he's 106 years old. An Elemental, the oldest brother of the infamous Summer Pride, the former governor of the fallen kingdom of Unicornia. He was never crowned, because even though he's from pure royal family, he's an earth pony. Landslide have always lived his life according to a strict set of principles. Despite his threatening name, he's a humble spirit and very religious. He spends many hours with meditation and contemplation every day. He claims, sometimes the Creator sends visions about the future to him in his dreams and guides his hoof to do her sacred work among the mortals.
After the Second Equine War, everything has fallen apart and he decided to live out his days in peace and solitude. For many years he lived like a hermit and the world slowly changed around him. The ancient era was swallowed by the dust of time, but his unique aura kept him at his physical prime and gifted him with extraordinary strength and a long life. One night, he saw a vision, which made him come down from the mountains only to discover the strange realm of Equestria. He blended in with the local earth pony population and labored under the yoke of the oppressors for many years. But, even a humble and forever patient spirit like Landslide will come to the breaking point...

The RP will start on Monday. This will give enough time for everybody to sign in. Plus I've got stuff to take care of this week, so I wouldn't have the time for it. :D

Well,like i said,my OC is a pegasus so that means im a knight...i'll join with Aurora

Name Aurora Northwind
Gender: Mare
Race: Pegasus
Personality: Usually Quiet and prefers to be in Solitude,also Loyal to her own beliefs
Bio: She was the daughter of a male earthpony and a mare unicorn-one of the higher ups-but because it was forbidden,they were executed just as Aurora was born,but the higher ups spared her life,thinking she would be of use,even so...they treated her more or less like how they do to Earthponies,that's why despite their teachings,she would still hesitate in treating the low ponies like dirt. She believes that someday,they would be in unison once again like their ancestors and also that the Alicorns were the ones at fault.

(I'll post the pic later)

Name: Wheat Roll (Such an original name -.-)
Gender: Mare
Race: Earth Pony
Personality: Irascible, independent, devious, bloodlust. Although she is small in this role of society, she has a lot going through her mind. But she does have a soft side. Deep down inside her. Deep. DEEP.

Her mother was accused of being a heretic, and was burned at the stake. This caused Wheat Roll a humongous fear of fire. Seeing her mother being burned alive damaged her mentally. She will quickly go into panic once she is close to fire. And for being child of a heretic, many ponies won't talk to her. She has also been accused of being a heretic, and was tortured. She was tortured by burning her hooves. She immediately had to lie, by 'confessing' that she had stole food from a lord. And so, she was released.

She is daughter of a varlet, along with her two brothers. One was hung for stealing. She lives near the Shepherds, and takes care of the Lord's land. While her father and brothers grow crops.

(Here's a better description of her appearance, since I quickly drew a sketch of her)

Mane: Brown, side braided.
Coat: Dark green
Eyes: Orange
CutieMark: Corn in front of wheat.

 Name: Wheat Roll (Such an original name -.-) Gender: Mare Race: Earth pony Personality: Irascible,

Name: Nightsong
Type: Alicorn
Personality: Intelligent, Likes to be left alone sometimes, Melancholy, Can be obnoxious sometimes, Witty, Can get angry easily, Scared, and goes for revenge if needed. She will also be a fantastic leader.

Biography: When she was born, her eyes were the color of pure darkness. They also shimmered like the stars. The Queen and King decided to name her Nightsong. When she was growing up, fillies would make fun of her eyes. She would choose to ignore them at first, but when it went for over a month, she finally burst. They were at a Halloween festival, and it was night out. Her eyes were angry and pure black with shining stars, and she brought the stars down, destroying the ground as if meteors were falling down. Ponies were running away, shouting and scared. Her eyes went back to normal and she saw what she had done. Her eyes grew wide. She ran, back to the castle. Her parents knew what happened, so they decided that she couldn't go out as much.

When she was already a mare, she would sit outside looking up at the sky. She would think what would happen if her power took control over her, and she would be evil forever. She was always scared at the thought.

Then, one day, she was angry because the ponies at School made fun of her eyes and how she looked like the pure dark. They gave her a nick name called "Melancholy". She came storming home. She went outside and raged about her horrible childhood, and how now, it's still going. A tear rolled down her cheek. She turned the day to night, and at the moment her parents saw this, they came outside. "Nightsong! Take control! Be strong!" They said. She looked back. She winced as if she were in pain. The stars came crashing down, and she was floating in the air, destroying everything. At last, her hooves lost control. She hit her parents with her strong magic by accident. Stars came crashing down to them. Her eyes turned pure dark. Everything turned dark, and she came back down to the ground. She opened her eyes and saw what she did. She looked at her parents. her eyes grew wide. She looked at her hooves. She ran to them and cried on their shoulders. They were cold, and lifeless.... The whole town was destroyed. And she killed her parents. She realized, she was a monster.

She was the Queen, but she was always alone in her castle, where she couldn't hurt anyone. She would always look at the night full of stars. She would remember her parents.

To this day, she is fearful and scared she might get too angry and do the same. She always makes sure her powers don't lose control.

The RP is open! Let the game commence!

Our story begins on a rather cold November day. The Sun is pale and fog oozes out from the valleys. Despite the rigid weather, countless ponies are gathered around, including the most respected and high ranking members of the unicorn and pegasi race to witness the finishing touches on the newly built Citadel of Power in the middle of the new capital of Canterlot and to pay their respects to the rulers of Equestria: the alicorns.

Of course, the highly trained and deadly pegasi knights, who's sworn loyalty to the alicorns, do not let any common pony near them. Unbeknownst to these brave and fierce warriors, not everypony in the crowd has come to praise royalty. A gray coated stallion moves swiftly among the bystanders, like a dainty shadow... always seeking the dark corners. Dark corners for dark deeds. When the last piece of the dome is put into place and the Citadel is complete, the alicorns - as a gesture of "great generosity and humbleness" - stand up from their golden thrones and meet with the common ponies of the kingdom. By this never before seen act, they set a series of events into motion.

The gray stallion is quick, not even the sharp eyes of the pegasi could spot him or what he's up to. The stallion gets through the mass of bystanders. He comes nearer and nearer...

He's in the first line now, and waits for the right moment. The alicorns approach, there's only a few feet separating them from the stallion. He locks his vision on the rulers of Equestria, his cold blue eyes reflecting nothing but strength, determination and rage. He reaches for his saddlebag, but his motions are safely hidden under his black robes. The stallion takes out a golden orb, filled with spiky green crystals on its surface. He twists one particularly vivid green crystal and the orb begins to glow. The discreet, but accelerating beeping sound informs him, that there is no way back...

When the time is right and the alicorns are right in front of him, he drops his cloak and reveals himself. With incredible strength, he jumps over the heads of the pegasus guards. His mighty roar rises above all the noise.

"SIC SEMPER TYRANNIS!" the earth pony stallion shouts, glaring at his masters.

The knights react immediately and create a protective formation around the alicorns. The unarmed attacker baldly charges at them, but a moment later, several spearheads pierce through his heart. The earth pony falls on the ground, with a bleeding mortal wound.

"The storm is coming..." he whispers and before his last breath escapes his chest, he bursts into a victorious laughter.

Then the golden orb rolls out of his lifeless hooves. The beeping sound accelerates even more and the crystals are glowing with a bright emerald light.

"Warlock Grenade!" one of the high ranking knights cries.

The two dozen pegasus warriors immediately retreat, forcing the alicorns to go with them in their ring of pony shields. A second later, a giant explosion shakes the earth, obliterating everything and everypony in a medium radius, leaving nothing but a smoking, burnt crater... in the chaos, only one thing is sure: the knights have sustained severe losses in the line of their duty to protect the alicorns.

Well, I'm going to start with a simple introduction with my OC.

Far from the village, near the valley, where most Shepherds and Peasants lived, there is a 22 year old mare, named Wheat Roll. She sat on a log, a basket full of corn seeds (Have no idea what you call those pellets :p) beside her. A rock on her lap, and a small rock in her hooves. She then starts grinding corn. With an angry look on her face, she smashes the seeds. She let's out a sigh.

Wheat Roll: Those ungrateful dolts.. *grinds*

Splendid! Now we're talkin'! :D Guess it's my turn now.

The brown coated stallion finally made it home after a long and exhausting day at the smelter. The job was difficult and tiring, but he never complained it, or about the few miserable bits the pegasi threw at him as "payment", even though he was making their armors, their spears and swords. Like with any task, he was good at it. Hard labor never really bothered him. He believed he had to do it for a reason, because of the mysterious ways of the Creator. He was a humble spirit with the simplest of needs.

On the way home, he was always observing the ponies on the streets. It's the fate of the earth ponies... he contemplated. He saw worn out faces, lifeless eyes, the total crowning of hopelessness. But as an intuitive soul, he sensed something else was there too. Something beneath the surface. Something powerful... something that was suppressed.

The newspaper was lying on his doorstep as always. He brought it inside and flopped down to his favorite armchair. When he unfolded it, the headlines made him frown. due to the recent attack, the alicorns passed new laws, that will take away more rights from the earth ponies.

Landslide: *sighs* So much hatred...
