Equestrian Legends Redux is a reboot of a popular MLPFIM roleplaying forum. We offer an extremely detailed sandbox world, a low minimum wordcount of 100, and a rapidly moving, far reaching plot. While you are just as welcome to play slice of life threads here, and they are encouraged between plot events, please know that Redux is very story driven, and considerably darker than the show.
Weather: Warm and sunny, but with a peculiar sort of silence to the air Date: September Tenth, 5150 Current Events: The Grand Galloping Gala Description: This biannual event was always intended to be one of celebration and delight, even if politics and stodginess did often get in the way. But this year, there is no doubt that the very nature of the Gala has been irrevocably altered. Begun by Princess Celestia after her Sister's banishment, now the Gala is being continued by Princess Luna after Celestia's death. This site appears best in Chrome, Firefox and Opera browsers.
Last Post Info
Ponyville Ponyville is a small village well to the southwest of Canterlot, but within full view of it. The population tends more towards Earth Ponies, but Pegasi and Unicorns have a good representation there. Bordering it to the south east is the vast expanse of the Everfree Forest, and to the west lays the far friendlier Whitetail Wood. Ponyville is small and cosy, with more practical architecture and a (mostly) friendly population.
Saddle Lake A small body of water near Ponyville, Saddle Lake is a popular swimming and relaxation destination for the small town. It is generally considered perfectly safe; though there are rumors of giant octopus living in it's depths, it is not a threat to anypony unless they encroach on it's territory and is generally considered more of a curiosity than anything.
Canterlot The capital city, Canterlot has a primarily unicorn population. Built into the side and caldera of a tall, extinct volcano, Canterlot is a gorgeous city with sweeping, Renaissance-style architecture. From the ground, all that can be seen of Canterlot is the Royal Palace, with the city lying nestled and hidden within the protective walls of the ancient volcano. A main road circles up the sides for ground-based ponies to access it, although the quickest way to get there is by air. Above the city, in a dip at the top of one of the volcano's walls, resides a lake. Streams fall in majestic waterfalls from this watersource, and the surroundings of Canterlot Lake have been turned into a gorgeous park.
The Everfree Forest The Everfree Forest is a massive, dark wooded area, a very dangerous place for anyone to venture. Only the bravest and most foolhardy venture within, as the forest is home to some of the most dangerous creatures known to Ponykind. Covering the swath of land between the Chrysolite range to the west and the Great Nimbusgait Lakes to the east, the cursed forest takes up a good sized area of Equestria, and would take several days to cross... If one made it out alive at all. A large spur of the forest extends to the southeast of Ponyville, and it is here that the most traversed of the ancient roadways remain. But that doesn't make them safe by any stretch of the imagination. Subforums: »Everfree City,

Ghastly Gorge A dangerous canyon riddled with predatory Quarray eels and unpredictable rockfalls, it isn't uncommon to see reckless pegasi practicing their airborne acrobatics here. However, it's generally regarded as a considerable risk, and everypony knows not to be caught in the Gorge after sunset.

Rambling Rock Ridge A small and gem-rich mountain range near Ponyville. This area is actually home to one of the largest Diamond Dog packs in Equestria and is a popular spot for those who hunt for gems. While the majority of the gems that can be found here are little more than shiny and for show, there are rumors of legitimately rare and valuable ones to be found here.
