I'm planning on hosting and running a Cbox event regarding the final scene of the Crystal Empire plot. However, knowing the complications that can arise from trying to get everyone together at once, I want to post here to try to organize everything, find out the times when the most people are available, and try to find the best time slot(s) to slip it in.
That being said, in addition to any opinions you have regarding the event in general, I'd like to ask anyone who wants to participate to list the times and days that they have available, as well as your preferred medium.
I am open to doing multiple instances of this event, if we cannot find a single time to do it or if we have too many people. Also, I am open to various mediums: Including the Overflow IC box, Chatango, Skype, etc. I plan on running this sometime between the 11th and the 21st, though there will be some restricted times on Saturdays and Sundays. I'm also open to certain times outside of these days, if the need arises. I want to make sure as many people that want to are able to participate in some way, so please give me your opinions and we'll try to work something out!
EDIT: Also, if we're talking specific times, I should probably mention putting in time zones. For example, I'm in GMT-5.
After 4pm all day every day...usually! No skype for me! Chatango's a go, but it'd be sorta weird. IC Overflow seems like a good idea, or the IC box. I live in indiana which makes my timezone eastern standard time!
I think Chatango and/or Skype would be troublesome for anyone who's running more than one character in this plot. But, I might be wrong—I only really have one and a very minor one at that, so what do other folks think?
I'll find a way to be there but I'd appreciate it if it wasn't held from 9am cst to 5pm cst or from 10pm cst to 11:30 cst on days I work. Which aren't known yet. ^^;; if it happens to run into that time however, I'll do my best to catch up XD
Ok, from what I'm seeing, I'm thinking Tuesday at about 5pm EST / 4pm CST for our first session? And then I'll plan another one, probably for Saturday. So if you can't make the first one, there will be another one coming around if you're still interested!
Ok! Tuesdays game went well (Overall, I think anyway), and though it petered out towards the end as people fell asleep, it wound up to a fairly good conclusion! As for Saturday's game: If there is any interest left, please make a comment here about a good time, or if there's another day that would work better for you. From what I've seen, a weekend day is ideal for pretty much everyone, so that's why I've defaulted to Saturday.
As for the story, there are a few options. I could either do a general repeat to the story that I ran on Tuesday, or I could do an AU storyline that'd have various tweaks, so that it wouldn't be so easy to get spoilers (I.E. reading the overflow box). However, this AU story would be technically non canon. The canon story will be a generalization of the first plot, the one that I ran yesterday, and I'll provide a write-up for it in total after the second session.
Now, for you guys:
1: Who is still interested in the Saturday game? I'm prioritizing people who DID NOT take part in Tuesday's game.
2: For those of you who will be there on Saturday, would you prefer a repeat of the story on Tuesday, or a tweaked Alternate Universe game with different twists and turns in it? I've got enough time to plan out said AU by Satuday, and I can probably keep it at least as interesting as Tuesday's was, but it's up to you guys: I'll have it ready if you want it, but I'll gladly use the canon universe for it if you guys would prefer.
The Fun Has Been Doubled! is a My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic moderate-to-advanced forum roleplay. Set after the events of the fifth season, we currently have no overarching plot. Instead, we simply have created the world of Equestria for you as a giant playground to have fun in and to explore the magic of friendship. Canon characters and original characters are available for you to play as, both ponies and non-pony species alike! Just remember that we are account-per-character and we'll be fine!
So why don't you stay for a while, look around, and let us know if we should get a welcome party started for you.
