Discordance City

Post by Atriark on Sun May 04, 2014 7:23 am

Welcome, my friends, to Discordance City, the hottest destination since Rarity took Manehattan! While every pony tries to gain access to this illustrious city, the benevolent overlord of Equestria has made a proposal to his citizens. "A lucky few of you will be invited into my city. But sight seeing will not be on the agenda. No, something more interesting-- for me at least. My lucky citizens I have decided to invite are here for one purpose. Be the last one standing and you get one wish granted by yours truly. And I promise that whatever they wish for, I will grant."

The Setting

Discord triumphed over the Mane Six. With the Elements of Harmony out of the way, he proceeded to take over the rest of Equestria and beyond, with Ponyville becoming the Chaos Capital of the World. But, without opposition, the draconequuis eventually grew bored of unbridled chaos and sought to liven thing up. So, he built a city of his own and invited ponies from different walks of life to his city to compete in a fighting tournament. And, as a reward, whomever won would get one, unrestricted wish from the master of chaos.


General Premise

The roleplay will be divided into rounds, starting with a pre-round where player-characters are introduced, and players will get a chance to establish their characters a bit. After the pre-round, the names of the characters are randomly paired up in a random arena where they will fight. The fighting will be done by each player a version of the two characters encounter. The two submissions don’t need to match, and can and will play out completely differently to each other. Have some fun with it.

Each player will have an aloted time to write up their version of the fight. Once the submission period is over, the members of the forum will be given the chance to anonymously vote on which version they like more, and the winner’s version will become canon in the growing story, an the character who won will progress into the next round.

Rules

The main rules of the forum here still apply, the rules specific to the main roleplay don’t.

Entries

Your entry needs to involve your character facing off with your assigned opponent’s character. How you win is up to you, write out how you imagine events going. All entries must be a thousand words minimum.

Voting

Voting is done with a forum based poll system, in which votes are done anonymously. Vote for whichever entry you wish to, for whatever reason. Though please try to keep your reason related to the entries, characters and their story, and not to out of game reasons, such as voting for a someone because they are a close friend.

And Remember

Have fun!

Your Character

Currently each participant is allowed to enter only one character. This character can be one of your current characters in the main roleplay, or a new character altogether. Since this is an alternate dimension, if you use one of your characters from the main roleplay they don’t have to be exactly the same. Remember, in this dimension, Discord won and has been tormenting the world for many years.

Characters do not need to be okayed for use in this, but we coloured names reserve the right to veto any character we think has inappropriate content. Power level is up to you, but your character must be beatable, and be aware, people are a lot less likely to vote for a character who doesn’t have to struggle and fight for victory. Reading about someone easily winning every fight and being completely awesome is not terribly interesting, whereas someone beating the odds and defeating a powerful foe who outmatches them is a staple of stories and more likely to garner votes.

There is a profile below to fill out for your character. When you fill it out, try to include what your character is capable of in a fight. If your character has an ace up their sleeve, but you don’t list it, and your opponent’s story wins, then you can’t blame them for not knowing and it never coming out.

One last thing, this is a pony roleplay, so make your character appropriate for this, being a human cyborg ninja with lasers out to get revenge on his lord for murdering his wife and children might be awesome, but it doesn’t really fit. At the very least make it a pegasus.


The City

In game, when a new day begins, arrows appear on walls and floors, pointing the general direction of your opponent. They don’t reveal specific locations, so ambushes are possible, just the vague area. As soon as the two are in the same general area, the arrows fade away.

Weather is erratic in the city, sections can experience almost any weather condition without notice. Feel free to use unusual or extreme weather in your submissions, but keep in mind this is localised to your two character’s areas.

The city is a steamtech age city, with steam pipes, cogs and gears on machines, and items and weapons of that style in certain places inside it. It also has a running water system, with taps, but for some reason a lot of them produce only sludge.

There is an automated train system that runs throughout the city, speeding up travel and providing the occasional background whistling toot.

((Question; in these... battles... are they fights to te death, or just until Discord somehow or another decides enough is enough?))



Name: Scintillance DiCanterlot Charmer
Race: Unicorn

Physical Description:

brown unicorn, dark brown mane, yellow eyes.

(alternate timeline; doesn' have yellow highlights) wears a light green duster, carries a pencil and too many sticky notes in his pockets, and wears four gold-coated rings.

Personality:

Lance is a free spirit, a self-proclaimed poet and a carefree foal in a sallion's body. In fact, Lance almost liked Discord's hilarious antics. almost. If only this godly entity wasn't so evil, Lance would have gladly accepted him as a lader of sorts. However, "It's not funny if you're the only one laughing..." as Lance always notes of Discord's actions. Scint loves a good laugh, so long as he shars it with another pony, or griffon, or whatever. That said, Lance could be assumed to be as impulsive as discord perhaps, with his own absurd antics that others might turn in hs direction and laugh. or give him odd looks and call him an idiot. both happen quite a bit.

Talent:

Scint's special talent revolves around an advanced form of Telekinesis, where he grips light itself, and reshapes it as he sees fit. beyond objects themselves, there are a number of Conjurations that Lance calls upon in pure instinct, such as a shield, or a pendulum-scythe. Scint never quite found out what they meant, but as they were, they turned him into a reluctant living weapon, and he could have been an amazing killing machine... if he actually had the slightest idea in how to use these weapons. without combat practice, nor discipline in any weapon, Lance might appeared to be armed with an arsenal... but he is by no means combat-ready.

Fighting Style:

Lance has no fighting style, to put it bluntly. heck, he'd rather have a chat with the guy trying to kill him that actually battle, but if without option, he is a living arsenal, after all. without discipline in his weaponry, Scint's combat techniques are mostly impulsive, irregular, and unexpected, his only "discipline" being "the definiion of stupid is to try the same thing twice and expect a different result... and I am by no means stupid." Lance would almost never try the same movement twice, coming from a different angle, pretending t run a way or who knows what; the only predictable element on Lance's part is that he'd normall have some conjuration in use, and even then, he cold switch between constructs as he sees fit.

Bio:

Heya! Scint's the name, conjuration's the game! go on, come closer, I'm not known for biting unless you're a giant marshmellow in disguise in which case I suggest you run. I'm mostly friendly, and if I start speaking nonsense, that's normal. so be a normal pony and go with it. or ignore it. and if you ignore it I may or may not mark you off as very boring, and will hold a grudge against you for the rest of your end of the day.

lessee here... I'm an orphan, but at this point who isn't AmIRight? If I stumble across you I'm pretty darn friendly for all I know (some call me annoying but that's just them and most of hem are dead anyway) and if I need to fight you in the awkward arena thingy I am very very sorry but I don't like losing. Good luck though!

Why people should follow this character:

Scint is a fun character for me to play, and I hope for others to observe; he lives for laughter, and couldn't care less what others think of his antics, so long as he enjoys them and npony gets hurt. unless the acual intention is for somepony to get hurt with a flying glowing yellow frying pan of DOOM of course, that's a different story. He's impulsive, and hardly predictable, even for me when I'm making decisions for what he'll do; Lance is never without options. If people want to see some comedy remaining in this unoficial RP, well, Scint's all about nonsense.

I'd like to express an interest in joining the Discordance City RP.
I... don't have a character to enter yet, but I'll make one when I can, and I'll edit this post to include it then.

Also, in addition to Lance's question, may I ask what the section about 'Why people should follow this character' is for?

actually I can answer that, Tay. how it goes is, you are your paired opponent need to write out your own version of how the fight would play out, and the community votes on who they think should win the fight. based one that vote, we decide which version of the fight plays out. ergo; if people don't wanna follow your character, you're probably going to die in the first round, or something along those lines.
