OUR STORY SO FAR: Back in June, a mysterious figure hacked into the server (!!) in order to join the new My Little Pony roleplaying forum -- using the character of Equestrian goddess Princess Luna. We played cat-and-mouse for a little while, but matters finally came to a head.
Fortunately, everyone agreed to play nice, and nobody got scared off, and Luna's been posting ever since.
( Meanwhile, in Fillydelphia: A summary of three months of forum RPCollapse )
In the most recent threads, Gemini dragged Moonglow into a private meeting with Luna after catching Moonglow in the act of stealing a spellbook of potential interest to the princess. But the meeting exploded into a cascade of revelations and expectation-breakers, until Moonglow made an earnest offer to help Luna with her investigations -- an offer the princess could not write off as either suspicious or obligatory. The act of somepony volunteering to help her shocked Luna into a realization that hit hard: Changing into Nightmare Moon upon her return might not have been necessary.
She fled the room and tried to react in private, only to have basically everypony walk in on her at once and realize something was wrong.
And, last night, Luna posted an amazing barnscorcher of a post explaining her reaction, and answering some questions about the nature of Nightmare Moon that dated back to her arrival. My jaw's still on the floor.

After way the heck too long, I'm starting the character generation process! (Remember how, once upon a time, the entire point of the forum was to play a 4th Edition D&D game?) The number of D&D players will be limited, because I can't GM for more than 5-6 people and maintain any semblance of pace, but new players for the non-formal RP (i.e., everything you've already read about up there in Fillydelphia) are welcome at any time. Just drop on by, register a character, and leap into the most recent forum thread (or create one of your own)!
