    Tell me something good that has happened in your life.

    With what a shit show the world continues to be, let’s focus on the positive for a moment. If you’re reading this, I want you to comment at least one thing in your life, no matter how small, that has been positive or uplifting. I myself, I’ve been working a nighttime health food delivery job for about a month now and I’ve been enjoying it greatly as it’s fairly easy and pays surprisingly well.

    What are the most interesting and important blogs and stories people have posted over the last month or so?

    I’ve been having trouble keeping up. Don’t worry I’m not abandoning pony, just up to IRL stuff. Last night I dreamt I was hosting a bacchanalian BABSCon party. Here’s hoping for next year.

    So yeah, lemme know what juicy shit I’ve missed. Thank you and I love you all.

    Also please tell your pony friends about my PonyText service. I like making people smile with cute pony pics.

Who Wants to be On a BronyCon Panel? “And That’s How Equestria Was Made!” · 2:49am Mar 27th, 2019

Hello all! Of course I’m waiting to the almost last minute to do this like the procrastinating sack of shit I am, but enough about me. Are you going to the last BronyCon? Do you want to be on a fun panel/activity? For the second year now I’ll be running “And That’s How Equestria Was Made!” What is this Panel/activity all about? Have some copy pasta below. The submission form is due by March 31st, so let me know by the 30th if you’re interested. I’m looking for 6 other people, and I’m giving priority to last year’s participants, who I’ll be PMing tonight, but I wouldn’t mind a few alternates. Let me know if you’re interested, and have a great day!

And That’s How Equestria Was Made!​ is a cooperative storytelling game. Something odd has happened, and Princess Celestia would like an explanation from her little ponies. The ponies would like not to be sent to the moon.
● Celestia makes up a question to ask the ponies, possibly about a disaster or silly event. (Examples on page 2.) She begins the game by asking one pony her question.
● That pony then begins making up an explanation. She shouldn't give a simple answer yet.
○ She might say something unrelated, implying it will lead to the answer: "Why do we have ducks
on our heads? Well, it all started when Rarity needed an idea for her fall fashion line."
○ She might answer the question with something that demands a further question: "Because
bandersnatches are afraid of ducks."
● When a pony speaks:
○ The player speaking usually talks for 5 to 30 seconds.
○ If the speaker ends by naming another pony, she should turn to look at that pony's player, call
that pony's name, and invite her to continue.
○ Otherwise, ​Celestia will speak next​, and ask some pony to continue the explanation. She may
also add to her question, e.g., "So is that why Prince Rutherford keeps sending me boulders?"
○ Pretend there is one microphone and each speaker must hand it off to the next speaker.
● Interjections are okay! Interruptions are not.
○ We know ponies are excitable! It's okay to shout out a few words now and then in response to
what the speaking pony says, especially if it's funny.
○ It's not okay to do that every time somepony speaks. Don't be that pony.
○ It's not okay to shout out a few words immediately after somepony ​else​ has shouted out a few
words. (Unless they're ​really​ funny.)
○ It's ​not​ okay to shout over the pony who's speaking and not let them speak anymore.
○ It's ​not​ okay to shout over Celestia.​ That is a moonable offense.
● You're all in it together!
○ If there are 6 ponies, try not to speak more than 1/5 of the time.
○ It's better to call on the pony who's spoken least than the one who's spoken the most.
● Each
○ Twilight wants not to be sent back to Magic Kindergarten or banished from Equestria and then
thrown into a dungeon in the place she was banished to.
○ Applejack wants to show that she has more common sense than everypony else.
○ Fluttershy wants to pretend that what she did wasn't impressive, even if it was.
○ Pinkie wants to make everything that happened sound like it was fun, even if it was horrifying.
○ Rarity wants to dramatize everything.
○ Rainbow wants to convince people she was awesome.
○ Exception​: The pony you play might want to take all the credit, do all the explaining, or not say
anything at all; but as a player you want to all build the story equally.
● Ponies are trying to make each other look good (mostly), not bad, so explanations should lean towards excuse-making rather than blaming. They might be talking nonsense or telling the truth, but they’re trying to make the situation look not so bad. Escalating the problem by revealing additional related disasters is always acceptable. Imagine Celestia’s eyebrows raising more and more with each new reveal. The game is to see the explanation grow into an outlandish pony tale.
pony should act in-character.

● Ending the game:
○ Ideally, one pony sums up the whole wacky tale in a way that answers Celestia's question,
closing with a ​loud ending line​ such as "and that’s why the moon is purple!" Do it boldly.
○ Any player may end the game. (Celestia should not, unless it drags on too long.)
○ The game may not end until every player has had at least one turn speaking.
○ Please do not interrupt someone else to end the game unless they pause. Besides being
annoying, a closing line without a leading pause will sound weak.
● Improv veterans:​ Rather than being strictly "yes, and", where you accept everything said as truth, some ponies might be lying their little hooves off to protect themselves, or to protect some other pony's innocence. Whatever’s cute and funny.

Of course you know I’ll do it. :heart:

Me! I wanna play!

Of course, of course, Bad Horse, Bad Horse!

The Jax and Powerful Greatie!

As long as it's not in Stabletop Games again.

Yeah I’m going to explicitly put that on the submission form.

I'm not a real writer like all of you but I'd like to help, if that's okay?

You could also try a variant where the players are the New Six, explaining something to Twilight.

Cool. I might be able to. Definitely going. Would enjoy.

I'll be going, and I'd love to give this a shot! :yay:

I'd be willing. We could even conspire to have feghoot endings.

I mean not to have feghoot endings. Yeah. Honest.

If I somehow save the funds to go to Bronycon... man this sounds awesome.

This sounds really fun! Count me in if you need more people.

I'd love to play, but not in panel format. Like, just get together and play.

I may be down, schedule pending. Gotta see what else is possible with/around the Bookstore. It’s been great fun in previous years, though!

I might be game, if you don’t already have a full slate! I don’t just BS for fun; I BS professionally. :derpytongue2:

So,
Bad Horse, Admiral Biscuit, FoME, GAPJaxie, and JMac (who didn’t comment here but responded to my PM) all confirmed they’re returning for another round. Only Bookplayer said she isn’t interested in reprising her spot on the panel. So I have one open spot. Y’all need to decide amongst yourselves who should that spot go to and who should be alternates. Of course, I’m not opposed to sneaking a couple more people on as Spike and Starlight at the con, but for the panel submission I’m limiting it to 7 people, which is still more than the official six maximum.


So yeah, I suck at making decisions, so if y’all could that’d be great. If no concensus has been reached by 4pm Pacific time tomorrow, I’ll draw names out of a virtual hat to decide.


Alright, let the chaos begin!

5035321

WandererD? CiG, if he can make it?

5035321

5035321
Dibs or something? I dunno.

5034375 I was trying to reply with a joke of the form "Oh, are you a ___?" But after thinking it over, it's harder for me to think of "professions" that don't require BS than ones that do.

5035321

Give it time. I want to see the Aquaman / Shakespearicles fight.

5035321
You're not going to get all these people to cede to 1. If you were asking us to make a case, that's a different matter, I guess, but if you knew ahead of time most of the spots were already spoken for and you were just trying to fill that last one, you probably didn't need to go through this process to fill it.

5035321
I'd probably have a lot of fun doing this, but I'd be just as happy to watch, so if we need to narrow the choices down, I'm willing to step out. But if it does come down to a hat draw, please do keep me in the running.

5035321
I mean, if it's really just a matter of filling one position, I'll pass. I'd rather watch several others in the running.

5035363
Let's just say it involves herding cats in an office setting. Not literal cats, but extremely metaphorical ones.

Oh, I think some of the more experienced writers would fit the bill much better than I!

5035375 He didn't know ahead of time. He just gave us priority because we've done it before.

I'd volunteer to give up my spot for you, but I spent many hours developing & playtesting the game, and know many of the ways it can go wrong or right, so I think I ought to be there. But Supertramp's just asking for volunteers to demo the game. There'll be plenty of chances to play it.

5033976 I don't remember if you've seen it, but the "panel" explains and demonstrates the game, and then the GM runs the game about a dozen times, gradually rotating in more volunteers from the audience, or rotating some panel members back in if things get out of control.

5033481 5033611 5033820 5033828 5033830 5033872 5033902 5033976 5034054 5034375
I think we should practice it a few times online as a group, using Skype or Discord, before Bronycon, like we did in 2017 (although not as many times).
So, are you still willing if it means committing up to 6 hours of practice before Bronycon?

5035689
That means I get to do it more than the one session. I'm all for it!

5035689
I'll relinquish my claim, then. But I'll try to catch it live in August. :rainbowdetermined2:

5035689
Still, if you knew you were going to give certain folks priority, wouldn't you ask them first and make the public appeal to fill in the remaining spots later?

Yes, I can be available for rehearsal, and since you've coordinate this before, you must already know how hard it is to pick a time that many people can agree on. :raritydespair:

5035689
It's possible I could, but it would depend on exactly when we'd practice. If it's at a time I can work, then absolutely, but if it's a time I can't make, I won't make a fuss and just drop out.

Alright, I just submitted the application, only 75 minutes before the deadline! I ended up naming Pascoite as the final panelist because he's cool, and listing everyone else as an alternate. As Bad Horse mentioned in 5035689 here, We'll be swapping out participants frequently anyway.

Look forward to seeing you all at the last (:raritycry:) BronyCon! Hit me up if you're interested in rooming with me!

5036068
Sounds good. Have fun, 5036000! We'll be watching and enjoying! :twilightsmile:

5036068
I'll try to make the practices as best as possible, but I work a night shift and unfortunately don't have internet access at work. I'd be happy to be an alternate, if needed or just heckle support you in the audience .

5036068

Sounds good! Can probably make time for practice as well if needed.
