Major Event #2 public discussion (Spoiler)

Postby Mayday » Sun Mar 04, 2012 6:04 pm

Our Major event #2 is currently on the way! As hinted a few times before!

Current story:

A New Mall have literally dropped into town. It have just about everything! And will have even more stuff apparently! What it is for, is up to you!

[OOC] Obviously, the store isn't just going to be sitting there. It have a purpose. It isn't good nor evil, it depends on how you roleplay and what you do. The event is designed around getting pony involved to -change- how the plan goes. The plot is going to change depends on what ponies do and ultimately, all of the major part are changeable. For example, it is entirely possible to turn the Vinmart into a tool and help Ponyville. Or it can be your enemy and hurt Ponyville. Eventually it will develops into a point where how Ponyville, and Equestria history will be written depends on what you do.



Why do you want to get involved?
  1. To change Ponyville history
  2. To add to your character background
  3. To find out how this plot go, and how to change to to your liking
  4. To have fun! Add more reason to interact with other character

How do you get involved?
  1. In character: You can just go there! Shop, interact with staffs, become a staffs
  2. If your character run a business: think about how this place effect you. Positive, or negative? Would you want to work out something with the mall for a peaceful coexistent? Return with action that are hostile in nature? It is up to you! Remember, Vinmart is neither good nor evil at the moment. What it will become depends entirely on what Ponyville citizen do. If you did it wrong, you might just make it worst for not just yourself, but the whole Ponyville!
  3. Do you have any character with specialization? The store is not just there to be a shopping mall, it wants to become something more. or become something else entirely. It is up to Ponyville talent to see thru it.
  4. Do you want to make new character? Many things are possible. Just whisper Lavender or Oni! We can only accept a few roles, however, so please don't feel discouraged if you didn't get selected!

Lavender: General manager Played by Mayday
Gilda: Mall cop player by Octavia
Lyra: Greeter Played by Octavia

The Muscle: ???
The Magic: ???
The Gang leader: ???
Gang members: ???

Anyway, here is a flow chart to see -some- of the possibilities. The flow chart get really extensive toward the end. We are currently at Phase 3, each phase represent each steps in the flow chart. More will be revealed later. There are a total of 14 phases and exactly 9000* outcomes. Estimated time frame for the each phase is about 1 weeks, and the whole thing will be about 2 months +/- a few weeks.

*figure might be an exaggeration.

Sounds interesting... Do you think that the mall is large enough to be it's own room?

The role plays that usually go on in the hub, and the ones that I imagine will happen in the mall would have a distinctly different feel in my opinion. It might be a good idea to separate them.

I think a separate room would be a good idea too. And if the mall is permanent we could then discuss leaving it that way. If it turns bad and gets wrecked we can obviously just remove it.

It is just going to be in the hub for about two and a half month. After that, whether it stays or not, won't be in the hub.

It'd be nice if there was some sort of announcement whenever something new is added to VINMART. Even if it's just a post here, it saves the hassle of checking the profile every day or being stuck going "When did that get put in?"

What are the distraction roles?

I kinda want QuietShadow involved with this.

She is pretty well off though... She'd want er... Maybe even demand a well paying job... Or at least a classy one. Maybe a lounge singer at the restaurant? She won't work in retail or fast food... But she sings... And her magic has magical properties. She specializes in buffing/restoring magic, though... She can't make ponies want to buy stuff or w/e the plot requires.

She'd also suggest a stage be built somewhere.

Sure, if you are interested in a position feel free to whisper Lavender directly. In general, most roles are roleplayed out.

Since this thread contains spoilers anyway, what's the general attitude of the BG pony populous on Vinmart? like, what % is all for, fully against, or indifferent.

It will be a very cheap move if the admins say 100% is totally for Vinmart. That's just abusing power.

Seem like it is a dead event 50/50 split so far according to poll! Which is actually pretty desirable, the point of the event is for ponies to have an excuse to talk about something. When all else fail, they can always debate about the validity of Vinmart.

The next part is delayed due to waiting for something to go. Sorry if it was misleading earlier but Hazard have -nothing- to do with Vinmart. And the respond from his doing received too much attention, we simply can't pushes forward and ignore that part. So after discussing with Tek we agreed to give ponies closure before moving forward.

The Trial really doesn't have anything to do with this event. It was just a distraction really.

I'm pretty sure it already is, this event isn't really set up over particular set scenes like the last two have been, it's been a more gradual progression instead of BIG THING ONE- Pause- BIG THING TWO- Pause.
