Nice post. Out of curiosity, what would the Pony version of the IRS be? You know, the government branch that handles taxes and all that?

I'd be inclined to use ERS (Equestrian Revenue Service).

@Bright_Ops@VutavaI don't think Equestria has the equivalent of a modern tax agency. They likely have some form of taxation given they have a government and such. However it's likely a far more archaic setup then what we're familiar with. Besides on Earth the settlements aren't likely directly taxed by Equestria, at least not at the moment. There are likely local taxes and fees however, decided on by the pony with the most legal authority (a mayor or some form of royalty like a duke).

Gah, I apologize. I sincerely forgot to post thanks to school smacking me in the face with work, and it's barely the first week over.

Hopefully I'll get one up soon.

After reading the first two OOC posts I've got to say that I'm really interested in this. Are you lot still accepting? I know the status says apply, but some people forget to change it, so it's a bit safer to ask first and make characters later.

@Polaris NorthI'd appreciate it Polaris. I know school can be a emotionally draining time eating hell, but I know you can do it.

@RaddumWe are absolutely accepting. I'm really glad that you're interested in what you've read so far. If you have any questions feel free to ask them, I look forward to seeing your character.

@Vutava Oh and Vutava you'll need to edit your post.

The skeletons are attacking the wall surrounding Bellbrooke, not the castle. While the Castle is within walking distance of the town, it's still perched on top of a cliff overlooking the settlement. So they're still far away enough that the group can't likely hear what's going on. Especially since they're all inside and they have the outer walls of the castle separating them to boot.

I REALLY need to get to work on that map I talked about. I'm healthy enough I can do it and I think it's clear some visual reference for where everything is located is needed.

@Crosswire Nice!

I ought to have a a few native Equestrian characters up tonight or tomorrow. Depends on how things go.

On note of this mentioned skeleton attack I suppose I ought to ask for a quick summary of current events in the IC? As of now, that's about all I have to ask about.

@RaddumNot a whole lot has happened but I'll give you a summary of what has gone down:

Prince Blueblood, current headmaster of the Bellbrooke Reform School, panicked in his office. He had been embezzling money from the school funds intended for the human children at the school to fund expeditions out into the area surrounding Bellbrooke to look for wealth and magical artifacts. These have been very unsuccessful and gotten him nothing save for a pin that can protect the user from sunlight.

It didn't help he had to show an inspector from Equestria around the school that day. The inspector arrived and Blueblood (begrudgingly) showed him around. Lying through his teeth about the more questionable aspects of the school (disorderly sleeping areas not separated by sex or age, the use of Rended meat to feed the children on the cheap, amongst other things).

The Inspector believed Bluebloods lies and during an inspection of the classrooms, revealed he had been convinced by the school councilor Ms. Meadows to give the Headmaster a large sum of bits. Blueblood was over joyed, until her learned the money was to be spent on an extravagant Hearthswarming Eve celebration for the human children.

Blueblood bit his tongue and swallowed his anger. His resolve was pressed when he became aware one of the 'problem children' was absent from class and likely gone from the school entirely. Lying about her absence Blueblood excused himself and went back to his office, proceeding to throw a violent tantrum in anger over the funds usage.

In his anger however he things of a devious plan and rings the Mayor of Bellbrooke up on a crude telephone in his office. Threatening the mayor with incriminating evidence Blueblood had collected on him he forces the Mayor to commission any available adventurers/explorers to meet the Headmaster for a mission.

Going downstairs Blueblood proceeds to meet with a trio of adventurers who had answered his call. An experience gun touting local adventurer by the name of Beeline, a less then social Unicorn magic user by the name of Crepuscular Rays, and a reformed 'graduated' human going by the proper Equestrian name of Worried Mind.

Blueblood made it clear to the adventurers why he had gathered him. Offering him a very generous 'bonus' payment (taken from the money intended for the Hearthswarming party) if they went to an old, hidden church nearby and brought him back any valuable/magical objects they could find.

As this happened the problem children "Falling Down" made her way out from the Reform School walls and began wandering out into the snow. Happy to be out of the Reform School she began to explore the nearby woods, unaware she was followed by a local reformed human guard called Lightning Flash. Falling came across an old, decrepit church (the one mentioned before) and proceeded to try and enter. Unable to open the door she attempted to beat it down, however for Flash to reveal himself and blow the church door open in a 'helpful' display.

All the while Thundering Cloud, a reformed human guard, stood on duty atop of the wall surrounding Bellbrooke. Then from out of the woods animated human skeleton began to appear and rushed the walls...

And that's everything that's happened so far.

I see. Thank you very much for that.

The character I've been working on should be easy to slip in. He's both protective of Bellbrooke and a curious wanderer of the woods, so depending on opinions from everyone, (and if I get accepted, eh-heh...) we'll see where I end up going.

I just finished his bio, as I've been distracted a lot since my last post, lol. The rest ought to be fairly quick to put together, so I ought to have a character up soon!

@RaddumRomt is absolutely wonderful. I honestly hadn't expected anyone to make a Diamond Dog character and frankly I'm quite happy to be wrong. You did a fantastic job Raddum and made an interesting, compelling addition to the roleplay. For some reason Romt reminds me a little of Clifford the Big Red dog, likely because of his size and fur color.

You can post Romt up in the character section whenever you feel like it because he's golden as is. :)

@Crosswire Niiice!

It's been awhile since I've been able to pull a Diamond Dog out, it's good to get back into MLP roleplays with one. Really glad you liked it!

I'll toss him in the char tab and start thinking about a post. I was thinking of making a second character; maybe a human, but probably another Equestrian native. So her CS might pop up eventually, if I'm inspired enough for it.

I honest to goodness really like Romt. Sounds like Flash would have a splendid time talking with him. He probably even, when he was a child, played with Romt (since Romt's much older than him).

Thanks! Glad to be here, as it's been a long while since there's been much MLP floating about. I went over the IC today and have to say I enjoyed reading it. Ought to be a lot of fun.

@Polaris North

Good to hear! He's not hard to get along with, especially if he did know flash years back. Something notable is he's sort of an old hounddog now, much more likely to just want to plop down somewhere rather than be energetic. Though obviously he's still got bite; As these skeletons are about to find out the hard way.

I'm looking forward to seeing him fight. I imagine that he works with the Guard often, so they would have a lot of chances at interactions.
