A rather Unlucky Future Resident's Guide to the City State of Canterlot

Hello lucky pony! It looks like you were chosen to make the journey to the city/state of Canterlot. This will be your guide to surviving your new life with Hell nextdoor. First, let’s start with the parts of town that have no entrance fee, and that are not hidden from the public eye.

●     Marebones Road: The place for the investigative types. There are plenty of secrets hidden here, you just need to dig deep and find the truth for yourself.

●     Veilgarden: A section of artists, artisans and sin. Creative types usually go here, and there’s plenty of ways to indulge yourself or find inspiration for your next work.

●     Watchmaker’s Hill: Sadly, the watchmakers didn’t have the foresight to realize that building facilities next to a giant marsh that has Zee water in it was a bad idea. All sorts of tough types go here. Smash heads, fight in bars, try and keep the peace, get paid.

●     Spite: A marketplace that’s smaller than the Bazaar, but less heavily guarded. A popular destination for the shadowy type of criminal right out of the gate.




Now then, you have to work down here to earn your bread, so having a job and a career certainly helps. You’ll be starting from the ground up, and there are four types of openings:


Enquirer: Low end investigative journalist trying to work their way up in the world. Resistant to Nightmares.

Gear: Notebook, spyglass and pen

Payment: Whispered Secrets: secrets that may describe hidden areas in Canterlot or can be pieced together to look even further into the mysteries.


Acolyte: An academic or a low ranking member of the church. Resistant to Nightmares.

Gear: A tome of knowledge relevant to their field

Payment: Glim: purple crystals that can be used in many different academic and cartographic pursuits


Aspiring Artist: An up-and-coming pony of an aesthetic bend. Resistant to Scandal.

Gear

Writer: 40 Manuscript pages, A notebook, Fountain Pen

Musician: Instrument of choice

Painter: Paintbrush, paints and 10 canvases

Anything Else: A simple set of tools matching your profession

Payment: Jade Fragments: green crystals, usually traded by artisans and archaeologists for favors or artifacts 


Pickpocket: A shady pickpocket who helps out other criminals and takes on contracts. Resistant to Suspicion.

Gear: Cutpurse mittens, pocket knife

Payment: Moon Pearls: pearls that show the position of the moon


Tough: A low end mercenary scraping the bottom of the barrel for work. Usually taking hunting contracts or breaking up bar fights. Resistant to Wounds.

Gear: 1 weapon of choice, 1 armor of choice

Payment: Rosy gold: red gold that can only be found in Hell and the surrounding area.




Let’s talk about dress code and armaments, shall we? Jeans and other such clothing are only befitting of hoodlums and ponies who get arrested. Basic dress code (if you want to fit in) is a collared shirt and trousers for stallions while mares wear a collared shirt and a long skirt. Visible armor is considered bizarre at best, and carrying around large weapons is considered strange outside of Watchmaker’s Hill. Consider carrying something more concealable outside of Watchmaker’s Hill.




Alternative Payments: Echoes aren’t everything down here. There are differing types of payments, each with their own uses. These range from Whispered Secrets, to Incendiary Gossip, to some of the stranger ones like Silk or Glim. Each kind can be sold off for Echoes, however, each one has its own special uses:

●    Whispered Secrets could be used to find a hidden location, traded in for Cryptic Clues or get you a lead on a case

●    Rosy Gold and Moon Pearls can be used for bribes

●    Glim can be used to gain cartography based items

●    Jade Fragments can be used to gain relics and such, or be used in bribes

●    There are plenty of other items, but listing all of them and their uses would take too long. There’s probably a book that explains them out there.





Now then, there are other guides out there, they cost about an Echo for each one, make sure to pick one up if you see one. They are: A Daring Consumer’s Guide to Infernal Contracts and A Devil’s Guide To Not Being A Scandalized Brigand. Since you have the 2 for 1 guide to hell, A Young Demon’s Guide to Permits is included below.

A Young Demon’s Guide to Permits

●    Power Permits are items that give access to a pony’s power that they had before coming into hell. Since hell runs on contracts, paperwork and fine print, permits came into existence due to the existence of living ponies in hell. There are five tiers of permit, from I to V.


Menaces are the little things in life that bite you in the ass later on. There are four kinds:

●    Suspicion: How much the authorities think you are a criminal. Failing at committing crimes will get you the unwanted attention of the Constables.

●    Wounds: Self explanatory.Getting stabbed, shot, slashed, beaten or in general anything harmful will raise this.

●    Scandal: What ponies say about you. Normally negative. Doing “immoral” things or making a fool of yourself raises this, as does having rumors spread around about you.

●    Nightmares: Usually leaves you unable to sleep, and may drive you insane if left unattended. Seeing horrific or unnatural things will raise this.









Welcome to Fallen Canterlot. I’ll be your GM for the day. Let’s cover the basics before getting into rules. First off, this is Anthro. Second, make sure that you won’t drop out in the future, I’d like all my players to stick around. Third, there are firearms, basic flintlock firearms, but firearms nonetheless. You may sign up to two OCs. Link their sheets so that I can look them over, not everyone is getting in.


Everyone starts with 50 Echoes. Spend them wisely.


Rules

●    One post per GM post. If you’re interacting with another player, keep the posting slow so other’s don’t lose the thread.

●    There’s always a solution. Always. Sometimes, even the simplest solution will work.

●    You are not starting off being able to use your powers. This does include MPD for MPD characters. Unless you’ve sealed other beings into your body and they are the other personalities. If you want your powers back, try and find a permit. PM me if you want to know the permit level you’ll need. Generally speaking, if I can use the power to break the game, exploit a loophole to make myself untouchable, or it’s extremely vague on how it works, it’s going to be beyond tier 3 and tedious as all hell to get.

●    Don’t worry about keeping track of menaces and other things, I’ll be doing the technical stuff from behind the scenes. Just remember to keep inventory, or you’ll be very sorry. If you gain points in one of the menaces, I’ll inform you in my GM post.

●    Remember that everything has a consequence.

●    Have fun!

I'll sign up Axis in this as an Enquirer.

I'll also drag Illicio Bellitudo into such fun. Bella will be Tough for this one, wearing a simple chain shirt as armor and a net as his weapon. o3o/)

Well seems I'll be signing up with Mythic Sketch as she needs some development. She'll be an aspiring sketch and pencil work artist. So a set of pencils, erasers, and a large sketchbook would be appreciated. Even though it's just sketching to start off though, I do plan to branch her out into paints and other forms of drawn art as the game progresses.

Edda Epic is going up as a Writer.

Azrael Azazel is getting thrown in as well, as a Tough, wielding a lovely longsword and some light plate armor, with some promised adjustments. Rather than simply a struggling actor, Azrael in this world went into the guard after the fall of Canterlot, learning how to fight like an actual warrior. He was eventually thrown out for becoming a bit too...unstable...for the guard’s purposes, but that only drove him further on in his fight. He branded himself and summoned his little demons, and subjugated them as he was wont to do. Rather than gaining his ability to summon random items, he gained a better usage of rune magic, and has sufficient access to arcane energies to utilize all aspects of rune casting.

I will be signing up Lolk as an aspiring artist, she can play most stringed instruments and paint. She starts out with a violin, a paintbrush, paints, and 10 canvases. She is wearing black trousers, a grey fedora, a dark crimson shirt, and a blue frock coat with bronze edging.

Celerity will start out as a tough with considerable table waiting skills. She will have a partisan and a suit of leather armor.
When out of combat, she wears grey trousers, a grey collared shirt, and a grey frock coat with white edging.

Well, looks like I'm pulling Ician into this as an Acolyte. Everything in his history remotely related to Canterlot and Celestia'll be changed to the new capital city and Luna, I suppose. As well as his role in the Church instead of the Royal Guard.

I think that covers it.

The sign up is now closed until further notice. I'll be speaking to each player one on one to confirm a few things before I finalize the thread. Thank you for showing interest.
