News ~ Yuma, Fuco's own son, has turned on him, kicked him out, and taken control. . New twist: The air has shifted around Assateauge, and it's setting everyone on edge. Storms are sure to come, and big ones at that. But, with the barriers the horses have wedged between themselves, how can they stay strong, not to mention alive, without each other's help? (So dramatic! :3) ϟℯαℬ@ηḓ ➸ Å ℜṔ ☺ т♄ε ℃ℌ☤ᾔḉø☂ℯαℊʊℯ ℙøᾔƴ ℬαηⅾ What's that line going down the side? 0_0 Here's a map of Assateauge island, where the ponies live. Just ignore Piper and you'll be good. Here's a map of Assateague's territories: The light blue on the left is MistBand. The middle blue is SeaBand. The red is the Band of Traitors/Bachelors. SeaBand and MistBand are allies. Both of them oppose the Band of Traitors. From the heart of SeaBand territory, it takes... 3 days to get to the kidnapper's territory 2 days to get to MistBand ..At a steady, consistant canter. You know the basic rules... *No really bad language, obviously. Just keep in mind the age of people on here. INCLUDING using the Lord's name in vain, saying "This s*cks!", or cr*p. (20 points) *No "explicit content". No bloody stuff, or anything else bad. Stallions and mares may fight, but you can't just run up and kill someone. You need "permission", sneak attack or not. Actually, I'll go so far as to say, no killings unless the horse's controller them self says that they are dead. If a horse dies, the player obviously can make another in place of it, and it won't count. Please, no random, bloody, fights. Fights should only be for ranks. *No REAL, heated arguments here, please Please handle personal issues with others elsewhere *Please actually RP on SeaBand once in a while. The breeding farms are taking over. It's fine if you want to RP there, just please limit that. *Here at SeaBand, you must promise never to leave a horse out. I'm sure we've all suffered having our horses, chickens, lions, wolves, etc be ignored. We want SB to be very friendly to ANY horse that joins, unless there is a large reason not to. We've recently had a member leave us because of this, and I don't want it to happen again. *No dramatic posts (e.g., "No one answers me!", "Don't! I'll leave if you do it!") *BE REALISTIC. A wild horse cannot become automatically become tame. A stallion cannot die in one blow. *Follow our fighting "points" system when fighting. *Do not complain, please! This is based off of a real horse band, so it has to be realistic. *DO NOT RP WITHOUT A FORM. *ONLY Chincoteague Ponies are allowed in the bands. I'll change any non-Chincoteauges that I have, so I'd appreciate it if you did. PM with the username and post #(s) if anyone is doing anything against the rules, or that should be against the rules. We'll be starting this out without points, but if necessary, I will add them. ᶲOnly one attack/blow per post.ᶲ ᶲBe realistic.ᶲ ᶲDon't be gory.ᶲ ᶲNO CONTROLLING OTHER CHARACTERS. This means no, "He slammed into her, breaking her ribs," or "He pounced on her, causing her to freeze with fear."ᶲ ᶲPlease, PLEASE, no impossibly strong characters. If a horse weighs 1,000 lbs and it's fighting a draft... You know how that's going to end.ᶲ ᶲNO BREAKING LEGS, NECKS, OR BACKS WITHOUT OWNER'S APPROVAL!!! This seriously irks most people and it's not fair.ᶲ ᶲHorses must get injured, and they can't win fight after fight if they haven't healed yet. Remember; this is a realistic RP!ᶲ Breaking these rules continuously could lead to a ban, so think before you post. Thank you! ...More coming soon. There's obviously a lead stallion and mare. The lead stallion and mare must be mated, or "together", like in a real band. Other mated couples can go down the ranks together, but you don't need a mate to join or be higher up in ranks, just leader. **You can absolutely challenge the Lead Stallion. If the challenger wins, the leader and is out, but his mate is given the chance to fight if the challenger has a mate trying to climb up in ranks. If the Lead Stallion and his mate are beaten, they only go down one rank. There may be a Lead Stallion without a mate, or a Lead Mare without a mate.** Here's who is sitting where: Lead stallion and mare: Yuma and Marie Jackal and Kotori *Yet to be determined* I've still gotta sort through forms. To join, just fill in the basic info about your horse. You may make an orphaned foal, if you'd like. Also, even if this isn't too realistic, there may be a stallion for every mare in this band. It leads to some fighting, but we learn to deal with it. Please, please, please note this; just because a horse isn't ranked highly doesn't mean it's a failure. Not every horse can be a shining palomino ranked one spot beneath the lead couple. **Limit 4 Horses per player, preferably a family** BYC Username: Horse's Name: Gender: *Rank: Color: ***Marking, scars, etc: Personality: Family Members: Extra Info: **"Life Story": *There will obviously be just one set of lead horses. First come, first serve If you have an objection to whoever you're paired with, or if you want to drop a rank, just PM me There can be small "brawls" for ranks, but no 'to the death' type things, please. **Optional. If you weren't born into SeaBand, just say how you got there, or if you are a wanderer and want to join, just say how you got where you are. ***Chincoteague Ponies almost always have patches or spots. SeaBand roams the whole island of Assateague. They have no boundaries outside of humans. Their biggest fear is the annual Chincoteague round-up, where humans called "saltwater cowboys" round up the band and drive them through town, and across the Assateague channel from Assateague island onto Chincoteague island. There they are penned up, some of the foals auctioned away to visitors and locals. There is a carnival around after the event. It seems to be fun for humans, but the many people scare the small amount of ponies that get rounded up, about 150. Some of the ponies, however, love the event, and the attention. It seems to be fun for the small children that unknowingly stroke the wild foal's noses as they are waiting to be sold. Their parents will scold them for touching a wild animal, but the magic of a small child is a new event for the ponies, sometimes soothing. SeaBand is a smaller band, and it only contains Chincoteague Ponies. They are thought to have descended from Spanish horses that swam to the island's shore after a shipwreck. They formed a new, unique, breed as they roamed along the coast. It is still a mystery, although. Some people say it is more likely that they descend from released livestock in the 1700s. Their mystery is part of the magic of Chincoteague Ponies. **The pony penning happens once a year. It was in July last year, so probably will be this year. ** Members: Stallions: BYC Username: equinehugger3 Horse's Name: Fuco Roso (Fuco) Gender: Stallion *Rank: Loner ATM, but when a band's horses love their leader so much, you never know when he may pop back up.

Fuco is the fastest in the band by far, but he doesn't have the best endurance. Fuco's old main goal in life was to be lead stallion, but when he met Timache, he gave up that goal, as she wasn't too into him fighting every day.

They reside on the farthest edge of the island, but roam every once and a while. They are quiet, calm creatures, prefering not to fight and are known as peace-makers. They are sea dwellers, longing to live near it and hear the sound of its refreshing waves, the scent of the salty breeze, the feel of the warm sand upon their feet. A secret follows them though, something they've kept hidden for many years....... Here are the rules for MistBand, some of them are the original, some I have made sepcially for MistBand. *No really bad language, obviously. Just keep in mind the age of people on here. INCLUDING using the Lord's name in vain, saying "This s*cks!", or cr*p. (20 points) *No "explicit content". No bloody stuff, or anything else bad. Stallions and mares may fight, but you can't just run up and kill someone. You need "permission", sneak attack or not. Actually, I'll go so far as to say, no killings unless the horse's controller them self says that they are dead. If a horse dies, the player obviously can make another in place of it, and it won't count. Please, no random, bloody, fights. Fights should only be for ranks. (10 points) *No REAL, heated arguments here, please Please handle personal issues with others elsewhere (10 points) *Please actually RP on SeaBand once in a while. *Here at SeaBand, you must promise never to leave a horse out. I'm sure we've all suffered having our horses, chickens, lions, wolves, etc be ignored. We want SB to be very friendly to ANY horse that joins, unless there is a large reason not to. We've recently had a member leave us because of this, and I don't want it to happen again. *No dramatic posts (e.g., "No one answers me!", "Don't! I'll leave if you do it!") (50 points) *BE REALISTIC. A wild horse cannot become automatically become tame. A stallion cannot die in one blow. (50 points) *Follow our fighting "points" system when fighting. (70 points) *Do not complain, please! This is based off of a real horse band, so it has to be realistic. (50 points) *DO NOT RP WITHOUT A FORM. (80 points) Those are the basic rules, used for everybody on this RP. Now here are the rules for MistBand. *MistBand is special, all the horses are Andalusian and white. If you want to join, your horse does not have to be Andalusian, but I would prefer it if it was white. Now, you can add special details about them such as Dappling, spots, "socks" etc. etc. That way everyone is unique in some way or another. *The MistBand horses, if they were born and raised in it anyways, have a higher understanding of life. They are filled with wisdom and are very thoughtful. Many of the horses were from the original herd, (Which was created a very, very long time ago. Well, long time ago to us anyways. ) They are normally calm, and as I said before, prefer to be peacemakers than fighters. *Lead Stallion and Mare are strictly from bloodlines only. Either the lead mare is from the previous lead mare and stallion, or the lead stallion is from the previous lead mare and stallion. On rare occasions the lead mare and stallion come from other bloodlines. *All are welcome to this Band, no matter how old they horse, or what they look like.

Horse Appearance: Her coat is of buckskin overo and her mane and tail and long, black, and cut well at the ends. Very well groomed.

This handful of ponies contains foals that have come by their own will. They stir up trouble amongst the other three bands constantly. Members: Isaac BYC Username: equinehugger3 Horse's Name: Starka Gender: Filly *Rank: Second to Isaac, only because of her ferocity and since she's been alone since an alarmingly early age. Color: Splashed white pinto ***Marking, scars, etc: The hairs on her chest swirl oddly, forming a shape that resembles an ear of corn. This marking, according to her parents, means death and foresees extreme bad luck. Besides her splashes, battle scars are scattered about her body, along with a slightly torn ear. Personality: Starka's own name means strong, which is essentially what she is; headstrong. With the will of a bull, she's one of the worst, if not the worst, member of the rogues to mess with. However, if you're kind to her, she'll return the favor. Very loyal to her band and resentful and loathing to anyone older than 3, she's an excellent fighter but still has issues socially from her early foalhood. Family Members: The band is her family. She has, in her mind, disowned her early family. Extra Info: **"Life Story": The first thing Starka ever saw in her dam and sire's eyes was horror. Not the loving, caring, glowing with pride look that most foals got, but pure horror and disgust. The corn ear on her chest marked her as inferior, unworthy, and dangerous in her parents' eyes. She shall bring death upon those who... pieces of a stallion's voice penetrate her thoughts sometimes, causing her insides to burn with rage. By the time the other members of the band had noticed the mark, despite her parents' attempts to hide it, her parents had almost accomplished their task of weaning her. Starka was a teary-eyed time bomb of a newborn, never understanding her band's hate for her. By the time she was on a malnutritious diet of grasses only, the plan had been made. Every foal from her band had gathered into a group, and were playing. Starka, as usual, sat on the outskirts of the field, sniffling and watching, longing to be participating. To her surprise, Eve, the most gorgeous, therefore popular, filly in the group trotted over to her. "Starka!" she squealed. "You always sit here alone. Don't you get lonely?" she asked. Starka's eyes widened. "But... B-But, I thought you guys didn't want me..." she whimpered, lifting her tiny head. She wasn't even a yearling yet. "You're so silly!" Eve giggled, and nosed Starka's shoulder. "W-Really?" she asked, fighting her baby speech off. "Of course!" The pair trotted into the swarm of foals. Starka was nuzzled and romped with until she reached the middle of the pack. Suddenly, a large colt 'accidentally' smashed into her tiny body with his hindquarters. With a squeal, she fell onto her side, the wind knocked out of her. Eve looked into the helpless doe-eyed face as the colt smashed her soft underbelly with his hoof, causing a scream to escape her lips as she scrambled to block his blow. This started a chorus of laughing whinnies as the other foals began to beat her along with the colt. Along the lines of death, Starka limped into the woods as soon as dusk fell and the parents - who had known what was happening - called their foals to their sides and took them to bed. Starka was left to raise herself into the head-strong, street smart filly that she is now until she met Isaac and paired with him. BYC Username: Zinnia-Hen Horse's Name: Gaia Gender: Female *Rank: Average Color: Piebald (black & white) ***Marking, scars, etc: She is a black & white pinto, with a shaggy, wild mane of white that reaches her mid-neck and a short tail of the same color. Her growing forelock is black, and nearly covers her frosty blue eyes. Personality: Likes to make suggestions in order to help her gang become more sucessful, although she can come off as a bit bossy at times. Is very tom-boyish, and could really care less about how she appears to others. Gaia is not the type to let others mess with her. Family Members: All are in another band. Extra Info: N/A **"Life Story": Like most of the others, she was kicked out of her band by her family members who deemed she wasn't good enough because she wouldn't attract a mate they could approve by being non-feminine. Angered, Gaia went for a week long journey before coming across Isaac and his companions. BYC Username: Zinnia-Hen Horse's Name: Rose Gender: Female *Rank: In SeaBand: High-Filly. In the Band of Rogues: The lowest rank there is. Color: A dappled bay body, with a flaxen mane. ***Marking, scars, etc: Because she is currently a yearling, her mane and tail are still fairly short and she is a bit smaller than the others. Rose's eyes are a dark brown. Personality: Believes she is tougher and stronger than she really is; as in reality, she's incredibly weak despite the fact her relatives have grown to be quite strong. Acts tough to hide the fact she's afraid of most others and tends to be a bit annoying. Around those she knows well, however, she can be blast. Family Members: Sire; Yuma. Dam; Marie. Extra Info: **"Life Story": Born and raised in SeaBand by her parents. After venturing out too far in the forest, Gaia came out and kidnapped her to stir up some trouble. BYC Username: MockingJay Horse's Name: Raja Gender: Female Rank: Higher up in the rouge band. Color: Raja’s coat is a rich red color over most of her petite body, except for her face. Marking, scars, etc: A mysterious pattern arches over her storm cloud like eyes, just behind her long eyelashes, and ends in a snip at the bridge of her nose.

Family Members: N/A Extra Info: Lives in the young rouge band. Life Story": Kicked out of her herd, by an abusive mother an unworthy father.
