Hi there! Do you like to pretend you’re somepony else? Act out elaborate dinner plans with extraordinary guests? Play in the park with fun personalities? Then this page is for YOU!
Here on BronyTales, you can be yourself, an original character of yours, or even a character from the show! You can /nick to change your server nickname for characters you own, or apply here to take on the mantle of a canon show character!
To help avoid confusion, if your Minecraft username is that of a canon character that you did not apply and get approved for, please nickname yourself to something else.

Roleplay Rules

  • Roleplay must stay within server rating. Roleplay must be kept clean, just as in any other chat channel.
  • Roleplay is not manditory. Don’t force people to join your roleplay if they don’t want to join
  • Roleplay is not a contest. It’s ok to lose sometimes - you don’t need to be the best at everything to be a good character. Power gaming is not fun for other people, so please remember that roleplay is about character interaction and not about who wins or loses. This also applies to meta gaming: please be aware of what information your character knows and do not use information they would not know.
  • Respect character autonomy. Don’t force anyone’s character to do something they don’t want to do.
  • Respect character universes. Don’t force mechanics from your universe into someone else’s. Ask if it’s ok first. For example, most people aren’t ok with an alien invasion in the middle of their tea party.
  • Most importantly, roleplay is meant to be fun. If at any point you stop having fun, then speak up.

Canon Roles

  • Roles are not titles. Simply put, if you are applying for a canon role, you are also applying to roleplay as that canon character.
  • Must be active. Higher-visibility roles have a certain expectation of activity accompanying them. (Details below) Please note that "activity" is defined as about an hour of play/interaction during a day, and "active" means several sessions of activity during a week. You are considered "idle" if you are not "active" for more than one day a week.
  • Must represent your role. Part of the application process is a prompt for you to respond from the viewpoint of the character you wish to portray. Tier 1 roles are much harder to get and keep than lower tiers, and have higher expectations for generally staying in character.
  • Roles are at-will. You can have your role removed at staff discretion if you act grossly out of character or are found in violation of more serious rules.
  • Roles require merit. You can be barred from recieving a role if you have exhibited problematic behaviors within the past three months that required staff intervention. One-time events do not automatically disqualify you, but any applications will not be processed for a minimum of one week following corrective actions.
