Set six years after season 6, Occupied Equestria presents an alternative history where the Changelings have conquered half of Equestria, while a former Equestrian colony - soured to Princess Twilight's notion of harmony with all creatures because of their encounters with griffins - Invaded and took the other half. In Baltimare and the Equestrian Southeast, the magic of friendship has weakened, as Communists, Changeling infiltrators, Fascists, gangs, and corrupt creepy politicians threaten the city. This role play is based in large part upon the Equestria at War mod for Hearts of Iron 4, and uses D&d 3.5e mechanics1847 posts and 147 image replies omitted. Click reply to view.

GM. Even though you borrowed the setting from a mod that focuses on the dehumanization of the individual and the strength of nations, I can definitely feel this place and its individuals are alive, have motivations of their own and fears to struggle with.
I'll base this on Cauldron, since it's one of the characters that were fleshed out more than most (almost equal to Skies in a way) and it is central to my enjoyment of the game, since it drives my character to do what he does. Anyone can see Cauldron's struggles of not being able to follow their passions because of responsibilities out of their direct control. Who didn't sacrifice their own dreams just to maintain the lives of their relatives? It's a very human emotion that most go through when thinking where to go and what goals they set themselves. This is why she's so endearing to me, because I can empathize with her and want to help her out and ease the weight of the choice by granting her more options to choose. To cause such a feeling to surface for something that I can't even see or touch is quite remarkable, and shows you have ability in your craft.
Now that you've added Pear into the mix, it creates a clever twist of Iron's heart, as he sees the mare losing her innocence to what the world can really be, which upsets him in a deep way. He believes that she shouldn't suffer in this way and therefore he will try to make things better for her although his plans are cooking
in order for her to regain that gait, that radiance that he sees in his mind is the perfect mare. Now he'll have to balance two hearts in order not to hurt himself with seeing one of them break down when he knows nopony else will care.
I hope with what I wrote can transmit the complex feelings you have given me through the use of your storytelling, and therefore encourage you to keep it up in order for both me, you and the others to have fun and great experiences full of emotion up ahead.I sure hope this doesn't come out as autistic.
I'm excited about your story. I love all of your characters. And I am having a great time for my only my second experience with this type of game style. Great doesn't even come close to fully describing the job you have been doing. You have gone above and beyond to give us detailed descriptions of environments lore, politics, happenings in the world, and the mood of the story. Not to mention how unique this kind of setting and story is for a D&D campaign. You are amazing.
No problem, my GM person.
>tfw no eeeing due to no mango powerup.
This must be a trick of the gods! Mangoes don't exist!>>104952Might be pushing my luck here, but I don't suppose it's gaming time/resting time for Iron today, right?
No! Stay back, you eeeing beast! You shan't corrupt thee to taste the non-existent fruit!>>104958Truly a sad fate for the lone wanderer of the boards
Could you elaborate?
Elaborate on what exactly?
Looks like I missed some geniune autism last night
That’s why you should join in. It’s pretty autistic, but you
can make it worse
That's one way of putting it.
Oh I can make it worse if that's what you want.>>104973
Ah don't worry, we're all autistic around here. Just… Some more than others.
>>104974>make it worse
Who says it's bad?
I don't think anyone up until this point has been calling it bad though.
Pretty much.>>104977Ah, you seem to think anyone here completely follows the norm~
Whelp, not much to do except play some vidya and watch the thread until the GM arrives.
Pretty much, again.
Herro, GM dudereeno!
Hey, the GM said I can make it worse. I'm just following his orders.>>104982>'ello
Is GM from Australia? More info during the 11 o'clock news
Nice to see you, GM. You ready/wanting to play, or are you just wanting to relax right now?
*tap tap tap*
From behind Onyx, in the carriage, there is tapping
*tap tap tap*
It looks like a little green crystal pony colt is locked inside
He turns around, doing his best to ignore the tapping.
Changelings?! What Changelings?!
Onyx's words do not seem to worry the little colt inside the carriage, as it isn't entirely if he understands Ponish
*tap tap tap*
No Changelings are visible in the vicinity
Onyx was just getting nibbled on in there, and he knows that mission is about.
He places his hooves over his ears.
As Onyx sits there, a Lilac colored mare with a glistening coat and puffed up, tied down brown mane passes, then walks a couple steps back, and starts looking at Onyx
Onyx uncovers his ears and shrugs before looking to see what the changeling is doing now.
Well, who knows what any Changeling is doing, but the new pony that walked up is looking at Onyx, as is the smiling little foal whose hooves are pressed against the glass from the inside of the carriage
>>104992>Glaring at GM intensifies
Anyway, Onyx sighs as he realizes how strange this looks resuming is position of sitting by the door. Hoping the mare won't give him any trouble.
The glistening mare now speaks to Onyx directly:
"Are you a Crystal pony?"
"About as much as you are. May I help you?">>104994>Onyx has been told they're helping two changeling foals>he saw two foals in the wagon that didn't look like that
Are you sure that it's meta?
"I haven't seen very many Crystal ponies around, outside of Neighagra at least. I thought I'd talk to you, since there are not so many of us in Bales."

"Oh… Well that would be… Nice. I'm Onyx."
