[Fantasy/Pony] [Anthro] The Great Pony War
#1
Humanity and ponies live together for a while and peace reigns supreme among the inhabitants of Equestria. Unfortunately, this peace will not last forever. The Griffin Kingdom and Dragon Roosts supported by more unscrupulous humans launch a unique war against Equestria with their equine and human inhabitants. The initial invasion is swift, merciless and brutal. Bustling cities reduced to slave camps. The capital turned into a command post. The last holdout remaining is Ponyville. Will they be able to hold on and strike back? Will anyone come to their aid? An unlikely ally eventually comes to assist ponykind and it's the last creatures you'd expect.

That's the basic premise to the idea. With that kind of open ended story, there's plenty of room for any kind of character. Pony preferred but in most of the major battles, anyone can participate. There will be a few select times when it will have to be pony only. And yes, there will be a need for canon characters to appear. If you opt to play one at any point, try to be accurate or give an appropriate-ish personality to the silent ones. Don't be too shy on the language or descriptions. This is a war after all.

The last piece is the framework. Major battles, uprisings, final stands, etc will be represented with its own thread. The opening post will be a Wikipedia style entry that details the major points of the battle such as location, belligerents, commanders, numbers, outcomes and all that. The following posts will just be a detailed account of the battle from multiple perspectives. Yes, there will be a ton of death and many of the early battles and final stands will end badly for ponykind. All that being said, with humans around, there will be plenty of actual weapons floating around for all sides.

This is not going to be a one character roleplay so don't treat it as one, unless you want that character to die at some point.

Oh yeah, magic is offlimits. It would be world breaking.

One final note... don't shy away. This should be an engaging timeline.

Firstly, I'm going to make a subcategory for this within Serious Role Plays. Secondly, I'm in, but I'll likely be more background characters popping up every now and again. I'm not too keen on war, but I can play it out every now and again. Finally, what all can player characters be, as per species?

In addition, what sort of weaponry is allowed? Ateren as an anthro pony is a builder first and an inventor second. Show technology seems to be very one sided, being modern in their music and domestic technologies but no TVs or Internet outright and military technologies being held back to the dark ages. (Most speculating due to the peace in terms of the show.) So would the humans bring a more modern militaristic technology?

If not: I'd like to spin around the idea of Ateren developing some Renaissance level tech that's developed in the privacy of his own home.
If so and they already have some more modern weaponry: I'd like to spin around the idea of Ateren developing some homebrew utility technology bordering on steampunk.

Would this be allowed?

In most of the major battles, I'll let about anything fly as long as it fits the ponyverse. So things like canines, felines, lapines, deer, etc... all mostly acceptable. You could be a human too since they'll be ubiquitous in Equestria. There will be a handful of things wherein only ponies will be allowed. Like things to do with the Royal Guard or Night Guard.

With humans in the mix, Equestria has become far more advanced in terms of technology. There's things like TVs, computers and other electronics, and modern military weapons. No need for anything antiquated but if he's a builder, that's fine. You can make your own stuff if you want. Like I said, a lot of things are going to be fairly open ended so there's room for specialized weapons and tech as well. Bear in mind, this isn't a one thread thing. It's going to be a big one so you'll want to do multiple characters.
