Yep, that's right!
Over a year ago I started a Fallout: Equestria RP that to this day, despite having only 5 players, has almost reached a quarter of a million words. Unfortunately this RP had died down and become completely barren after a whole year of fun. However, now that I have some more time on my hands I'd like to start a new one up, fixing things we found annoying in the last one, and adding new features that will be sure to impress.
First, we will have a fully functioning and interactive map.
At any point in time during the RP, you can log in to Roll20
And see where your character is relative to other character s or enemies in real time. Clicking on your character brings up stats like health, money, or various ailments and details that may be hard to remember off the top of your head.
Second,Time zones do not matter much.
Though we will be looking at time zones to help us decide on candidates, they are not make or break to get in. Since the RP is forum based, there are no specific meeting times, and as such, you can post whenever you have time to. The archives will always be available, and special niceties such as colored text for a character's speech are easy to implement and make the whole experience that much better.
And lastly, free illustrations are available to those who make it in.
Once your character has been approved, we encourage artwork of that character to be present to help give us a visual representation of the character. However, throughout the course of the RP, illustrations of your character may be made completely free of charge.
How do I apply?
Since we get a lot of applicants, and only 3 more slots to fill, please don't feel bad if you are not chosen. It doesn't mean you're a bad writer, or you have a bad character, we're just looking for very specific things in each application. However, don't let that discourage you from applying, you never know.
1. Email me at DILeakStudios@yahoo.com.
Please format the subject so it mentions something about "RP" or "Fallout" so I can sort them appropriately.
Inside the email, Please include your Deviantart name, Time zone, and any information about past RP's you've been in, or stories you've written. If neither of the latter apply, just a Deviantart name and time zone would be fine.
2. You'll receive an email back, with an application and test inside.
In the application , you'll have to provide details about the character you wish to use in the RP, including information such as Name, age, background, weapons, talents, illustrations, and S.P.E.C.I.A.L stats. If you don't know what this is don't worry, it will be explained in the email. This character will not be your final character, and may be tweaked if it is accepted.
Below this, you'll be given a scenario that your character is in, and you'll have to write out a short story about how (s)he accomplishes/doesn't accomplish the task. This will be viewed over partially for grammar and structure, and partially for how well a character is played and portrayed. There will be a minimum amount of words, but no maximum.
Once you send it back, and we recieve enough applications, the other game master and I will sort through and choose the ones we think would best suit this playing style. We'll then message you back with information on whether or not your character was accepted.
You can ask questions in the comments if you would like.
Good luck, and may the odds be ever in your-
Oh wait, wrong thing..
War. War never changes.
