A quick question: While I realize that this site is intended for free-form role-playing, since... well, it says so at the top of the page, is "traditional" P&P-style role-play (MLP-themed with OCs only, of course) explicitly forbidden? I don't think I have read anything to that effect in the rules.

If it is not forbidden, I might be interested in running a campaign on here (well, duh, otherwise I wouldn't have asked) if any players are interested.

While I myself am not familiar with them there is absolutely nothing against them, in fact we have many P&P style campaigns going on between members over skype already, so suffice to say there's an audience.

Starting in conversation is often the best way to get into a roleplay, meet the players and see what's going on but we also in the Roleplay and NSFW sections have an area for sign ups, threads for players to test the waters to see who would like to be in a future roleplay.

Additionally some threads will be labelled as "open", which means anyone can jump into them at any time. But before that if you look to the Character Sheets section and fill one out so we know your character first.

Feel free to ask about anything, either in this thread or via PMs if you want.

I'm curious as to the procedure for deleting a character. I figure it's not more complicated than sending a pm to Dual, then following through when the pm is gotten, but I'd like to clarify before doing that.

Are our OCs allowed to utilize modern military hardware(For example: Assault Rifles, Kevlar Armor, ETC)?

Yes but under certain circumstances. For the most part, technology should not be overexceeding what the show and comics provide/imply when submitting a character, buuut... Otherwise, it varies by threads set in timelines/scenarios alternate to show canon where such things may be allowed more. Granted, it may be possible to negotiate for some leeway on that for general canon threads, but you'll need to be careful and clever about it. It's also possible for someone to submit characters intended for specific types of threads where such gear is intentionally common though, so there's that.

In that case....would semi/automatic crossbows be allowed?

Crossbows are considerably more acceptable all over by comparison, even ones with automatic custom applications. That said, you may still be able to use Kevlar or Kevlar comparable armor given it's just really good protection made from altered fabric and not something like, say, the Spartan armor from the Halo series.

Can I make a thread that allows both OCs approved normally and the OCs that were approved on the Maretropolis sheets?

For best results, you might want to make said thread in the Maretropolis section but advertise it in the various sign-ups depending on it being SFW or not. Maretropolis characters are meant for that sub-section's threads only, but there's certainly nothing preventing the OTHER characters from being in them too if this is what you're looking for.

So I launch the thread in Maretropolis section. But allow Non-Maretropolis OCs can be used if the person wants to use them?

Yes. I even asked Obsidian for good measure and he's okay with it.
