 Magical Horses RP

 Magical Horses RP

Long ago, when horses ran free and roamed the wide world, there were seven Great Herds.

The first were the Mountain Horses, who lived on the heights and flew with wings like eagles.

The second were the Horses of the Plains, who could run faster than the wind.

The third were the Desert Horses, who breathed fire and conjured up sandstorms to swallow their enemies.

The fourth were the Forest Horses, who knew every plant of the woods and were wise healers. 

The fifth were the Sea Horses, who lived in the depths and rarely left their ocean home. 

The sixth were the Ice Horses, who lived in the cold North and commanded the snow. 

And the seventh were the Swamp Horses, who could shapeshift and
create illusions, and were as mysterious as the mist that shrouded their
land ... 


All right, everybuggy! Here at last is the Magic Horse RP that Flamarestii and I have been planning (she wrote the introductory bit above!) There are seven Great Herds, but there's also a band of dark horses, from across the sea. They've suddenly shown up in the peaceful land of the Great Herds, and no one knows who they are - or what they're doing here.

All too soon, however, it becomes plain that the Dark Horses are using their powerful magic spells, and their ability to command thunderstorms, to take over the Herds. It's up to the original horses to save their world... but can they?

Here's the charrie sheet!




Mountain, Plains, Desert, Forest, Sea, Ice, Swamp, or Dark Horse?:

Family members (optional):





Each person can submit up to four characters.

Oh great, I just realized RPs are supposed to be on Inkwell. @Admin, sorry to bother you, but could you please change the title of this thread to "Magical Horses RP" and move it to the Inkwell, if it's not too much trouble? Thanks so much!!!

Done. Not too much trouble at all.

Name: Niaran (his nickname, which only his Esteemed Friends are allowed to use, is Blaze, because of his appearance)

Pronouns: He/him

Age: 14 - he's a middle-aged/getting-on-for-old horse

Mountain, Plains, Desert, Forest, Sea, Ice, Swamp, or Dark Horse?: Sea

Family members (optional): His sister married a Forest horse, so she lives with the Forest Horses, and his younger brother disappeared years ago - where to, no one knows. He has a partner, Agalia, and several children. 

Appearance: Silvery-colored, with a black mane and tail, a white blaze down his face, and a strong muscular build. His eyes are very dark and remind you of the sea.

Personality: Wise, knowledgeable, caring, a bit set in his ways, brave, uncomplaining, intelligent

Quirks: He may not appear wise or caring on the surface, since he's quite strict and won't take no for an answer.

Other: He's one of the leaders of the Sea Horses.


Name: Agalia (I didn't make this up - it means "love" in Greek, I believe)

Pronouns: She/her

Age: 12

Mountain, Plains, Desert, Forest, Sea, Ice, Swamp, or Dark Horse?: Originally Ice, but she became Niaran's mate, so now she lives in the sea.

Family members (optional): Niaran, several children, a large and extended Plains family

Appearance: Chestnut-colored, rather small, a white star. Always neat, but not very noticeable in a crowd.

Personality: Sweet and gentle on the surface, but where her family or her ideals are concerned, she can be relentless and determined. She's motherly and caring, and often helps Niaran lead the Sea Horses.

Quirks: She's fascinated by the night sky and the stars. She also distrusts the dark horses from the start, and is more given to trusting feelings and omens than Niaran is.

Other: n/a

Mountain, Plains, Desert, Forest, Sea, Ice, Swamp, or Dark Horse?: Mountain

Family members (optional): A great many, but I won't list them here.

Personality: Joyous, fun-loving, friendly, but wants something to do with her life instead of just flirting and playing with other young horses.

Quirks: She'll speak out passionately about something that really matters to her, but otherwise she tends to just keep her cool. She has the makings of a great leader, but she doesn't know it yet.

Other: She's open for shipping with male horses, if anyone wants to do that.


I might add a fourth charrie later, but that's all for now! 

By the way - this is important - the RP will start in a few days, probably on the 16th. If you have any more charries you want to add, please do it soon :)

Isaiah stamped his hooves, trying to keep the chill out of his swiftly thinning coat. He ruffled his wings and tucked them around his body. Just last winter, his coat had been thick and furry. Why wasn't it now? Oh, he thought. It's because I'm old.

He closed his eyes, feeling the bones lock in his legs as he relaxed. The sun was setting. It was time to sleep.

He shivered once more, opening his eyes. All of the other Mountain horses were huddled up together, wrapping their wings over one another lovingly, cuddling for warmth. He snorted, the huff of breath releasing a cloud of fog into the night air. No one wanted to cuddle him. Why? Oh, he thought once more. It's because I'm old.

Closing his eyes, he finally let himself drift into a restless sleep.



His eyes fluttered open. A voice was calling his name, sounding faint and distant.

"Isaiah. Look up."

He obliged. Turning his head upwards, he saw a beautiful light above his head, shining down upon him and keeping him warm. "I hear you."

"Isaiah. Storms come."

Isaiah's eyes widened. Dark clouds were swiftly moving in, staunching out the warmth and the light. A strong, cold wind blew into his face, making his eyes stream and nearly pushing him from his footing on the rocky ledge. They encircled the light like a constrictor snake's grip until, at last, the light flickered out.

Then lightning flashed, and Isaiah was cast into darkness.

"A sign," he breathed. "Storms and darkness are coming when we think that it is safe."
