Welcome to a world where love and friendship create the strongest of spells, and where an adventure can be found beyond every twist and turn. A world where all kinds of creatures find themselves in situations of a positively ludicrous nature, day after day, even! In such a world, where "normal" is relative, and mundane is anything but; what sort of journey will you find yourself on today?

Starting on the In-character date of Mid-June 2019, Journeys Across Equestria's first "Post Reboot" Story Arc will begin. When the latest Lunar Eclipse refuses to pass, Luna and Celestia find themselves cut off from the Moon and Realm of Dreams! Meanwhile, children everywhere are suddenly and inexplicably falling into a deep magical slumber, where they are tormented by terrible nightmares! Who, or what could possibly be responsible?!

To learn more about this upcoming event, please visit the Blood Moon Information and General Discussion thread in the Inn. If you want one or more of your characters to participate in this event, let us know here! The cutoff date for players who wish to participate in this event is May 11th, 2014.

We are currently accepting Canon Character applications! A list of available characters can be found here, the thread to "claim" a character can be found here, and the audition thread itself can be found here.

Congratulations to JM95 for winning the role of Spike the Dragon, although this turn of events also means that he has voluntarily given up the role of Cheese Sandwich, putting him up for grabs along with all of the other available Canon Character roles.

As a reminder, if there are at least TWO auditions for the same character, a poll will be held within three days of the last audition made for that character. Additional auditions will be accepted at that time, but the deadline will not be extended. In three days after the poll has been started, the votes will be counted, and the winner will be announced, as with the old method.

To those of you that play Canon Characters: It is encouraged that you play your Canon Characters as often as you can, within reason. The JAE staff realizes that it can be more difficult to play certain characters in a day to day situation than others, (Such as one of the Princesses, in comparison to say... Pinkie Pie.) so in some cases, leniency is exercised. Still, it never hurts to make a thread that involves a character, that for once, doesn't involve the fate of Equestria hanging in the balance.

Journeys Across Equestria is a My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic Roleplay Forum set five years after the show. A 100 word count minimum for posts is enforced for all In-Character posts.

OK, so there's been some discussion and debate in the cbox about Kirin, as they've been changing quite a bit. Here I will compile a list of traits we've mentioned. Not all of these are universally agreed upon, but this thread is posted because this is a pressing matter we need to settle.

The Kirin Write-Up

The Neighponese and Mane-Jise-native Kirin or Qilin, as they are called in Mane-Ji, are a race of chimeric beings that possess the body of a horse, deer, or ox, the antlers of a deer, the scales of a carp, and the tail of an ox. This is usually how they look, but due to them being able to breed with ponies, some lean far more towards the horse-like aspects. Like ponies, Kirin are split into three groups: The Earth Kirin, who have a pair of antlers and possess a powerful elemental breath weapon; The Horned Kirin, who have Unicorn-like magical ability through a single curved horn on their forehead; and the Winged Kirin, who have the ability to fly and walk on the clouds. Kirin that have pony ancestry are likely to have cutie marks.

Kirin may look fearsome, but they are actually a peaceful species in general. Those native to Neighpon and Mane-Ji tend to be vegetarians, and some even refuse to walk on grass out of the fear of disrupting it.There are individual cases where this is not true, so it's not safe to assume all Kirin are peace-loving, passive vegetarians. Male Kirin tend to be bigger, bulkier, and more monstrous in the face, while females tend to be thinner and more delicate. In general, Kirin are on average taller and longer-bodied than ponies.

Some Kirin are practitioners of Wu Xing, a philosophy that involves five elements. Earth Kirin tend to lean more towards Earth and Wood, Unikirin tend to lean more towards Fire and Metal, and Winged Kirin lean more towards Water due to their affinity for the clouds and sky. This is not true for all Kirin, as the majority are not practitioners of this art.
