Journeys Across Equestria > The Inn > Blood Moon (1st Post-reboot Story Arc!)


Posted by: That Little Twerp May 4 2014, 08:06 PM
Alright, you folks have been asking just what this upcoming "first" story arc for the site post-reboot will be, and I finally have some answers!



So... a Blood Moon/Lunar Eclipse; something that only occurs every so often, well... occurs, and it drains Luna of her powers, albeit for as long as the Lunar Eclipse/Blood Moon lasts.

Since eclipses generally don't last too long, nothing is thought of it at first, but the Blood Moon doesn't go away, because somepony's cut Luna off or blocked her from her realm of influence while she was weakened, and is actively preventing the Moon from being manipulated by her, Celestia, or either of the other two Princesses. Meanwhile, something is causing children to fall into a deep magical slumber, and their dream-selves are sent to somewhere in the deepest, darkest reaches of the Dream Realm, the name of this place known only to a very small number of beings, where they are being subjected to a constant stream of nightmares.

The resulting negative energy generated by the children is being gathered and used to bring back this ancient land, and the resultant shift of this place to the material plane causes massive amounts of dimensional chaos, resulting in locations that exist or existed in different realms or planes to end up in Equestria, this chaos threatening to cause a schism in the fabric of reality.



We have TWO Major Villains involved in this plot arc, and the role of one them is up for grabs.

If you, or anyone wants to play the role of one of said villain, this is the thread to let us know. If no one wants the role, then one of the staff shall play them. Please send me a PM if you want more information on the mystery villain.

The event shall start NEXT WEEK, so if you want a character of yours to participate in the event, let us know here. The cutoff date for participants is May 11th, 2014, with the actual event starting on the following day, May 12th.

The In-Character date for the first part of this event Will be mid-June 2019.

Thinking of using the following (or one of them) for these purposes:
Utopia: Will attempt to keep the dreams clean, but the more she does, the less she is able to remain awake and will eventually fall for it.
Purple Cloud: Will contact Celestia to know what's wrong.
Inari: Will come to Equestria to investigate this, seeking to analyze the magic to find ways to nullify it. "Magical science are-a go!"

I should also mention that I plan to put Miss Blossom in this plot event as a caretaker towards the distressed foals, as she hasn't seen any plot action yet.

ALRIGHT, so the cutoff date for joining PART ONE and beyond of the current event has passed. However, should you still wish to participate, you can still post in here, and participate from Part 2 onwards. The cutoff date for joining the event from Part 2 and onwards is May 17th.
