Title: P.O.N.I. Headquarters
Post by: Holiday Cheer on 2018 Feb 07, 12:59:14
HEY EVERYPONY!  Have you ever wanted to attend a party for a holiday, birthday, wedding, or other social event?  Did you ever want to attend that party as a magical talking tiny horse?  Then look no farther than the party planning committee of Legends of Equestria also know as the

Agents of P.O.N.I. - Party Organization and Networking Initiative. 

This group of hardworking ponies spend much of their precious free time planning and organizing the big events that you and your pony friends attend in Legends of Equestria.  They could be socializing with friends, playing other games, reading a book, or even going 'outside' but they choose to follow the long and difficult road of making sure that there's always fun things to do in this beautifully crafted world of fantasy and talking horses that we all live in. 

So this space is where all events past, future, and present, planned by P.O.N.I. or by other friends of LoE who just want to plan fun events can mention what they're working on.  Please feel free to post your events here as well.  After all, we are all one big family and no one pony is more important than any other.

Please thank anypony you meet who works hard on these events as without them, LoE would be a lot less fun.  Also if you want to join P.O.N.I. just feel free to ask.  We're always happy to have more help.

HERE'S WHAT'S COMING UP SOON:

March has been a busy month for birthdays but there are still some days left.  The upcoming birthdays are:

Coda: March 29
Lemon Cloud: March 30

And on March 24 (this Sunday) at 8PM GMT, please join us at the Cantermore Castle training area to participate in a contest to earn the right to join the Royal Guard and win fabulous prizes.  Spectators are welcome!

And PONI is working on a special Easter event at the end of April.  Be looking forward to this.

This last weekend was ah-mazing!  So many great ponies around.  Some great games of Truth or Dare and Hide and Seek being played.  And to top it all off, we had a super spectacular party on Sunday night thrown by my good friend and fellow party pony Fluffy Cloud.  It was off the hook excitement!

There's been so many cool ponies around lately and so many events.  But the best is yet to come tomorrow night for my Hearts and Hooves party is upon us!  Show up at SCC in Ponydale at 7CST (or earlier because you know I'll be there getting the party started early) for lots of fun games and dancing with single ponies just like you.  Or for those who want to bring a date there will be a couples mingle as well.

Also we have a very special birthday coming up on March 1st.  Our friend and resident pony guide and helper Jet Black is turning one year older.  Jet does a lot for the newer players in the community and deserves some (but not a ton because it'll go to his head :P ) of recognition.  I'll be setting some more exact details for his party soon so please keep that one on your radar!

I hope you all keep having fun and I can't wait to see you around!

Is this a picture of you, Holiday Cheer?^^

Scoots, we've met now I think so you know me, but that's a recolor art that my friend made for my RP plot from Feb 14-17.  I'll share more of the story behind it very soon.

I've been getting slammed with wedding season being upon us (apparently) and I wanted to say something about this. 

But first let me ask everyone who is currently active in LoE to please please please be online tomorrow evening (roughly 5-9 CST) for the party event of the year!




So there's been a lot of ponies getting married lately and I've been getting asked repeatedly to plan weddings.  This is something I LOVE DOING and I'm more than happy to help you ponies out.  However when it comes to the actual wedding planning and performing the wedding I'm not really doing that much.  I've talked with ponies and helped them get ideas of what they'd want for their ceremony and sometimes I help them get connected with the appropriate other ponies who can help them.  However, I am getting a HUGE amount of the credit for these weddings with I DO NOT DESERVE.  There are some other amazing ponies out there who do a LOT for wedding events on LoE and they deserve more of the credit than me when it comes to the actual wedding.  I would like to mention two here, but there are plenty of great party and event planners and plenty of ponies who stand in as best mares/stallions that help out a lot too.

Jet Black is always willing to step in as a best stallion at the last minute and is always happy to play wedding photographer and create Youtube recordings of the weddings.  This kind of memory is a treasure and he deserves your thanks.

Blue Cloud is the BEST wedding ceremony performer (priest) that there is.  He has a great oratory for weddings and always puts a special touch on it to make it special for the happy couple.  Plus he helps make sure everypony knows what to do and where to stand and basically does everything than a real-world priest would do.. These things would not happen without him and I never see anypony publicly thank Blue for all he does.  So please do this for me in the future.

I don't mind a 'thank you' when I've done something, but at least please have the courtesy to thank the other ponies who helped you with your wedding too.

Love Holiday!

Hello Holiday! Most of my ponies have a quill and parchment cutie mark, so I'm an author. If you ever need somepony to hire to write stories for a certain party like maybe a "Campfire Night Party" or something like that, I'm really good at it. It's my Cutie Mark, after all! Consider me, please!


Thanks!

Cloudy Skies

Cloudy, as always you've got my vote.  I should actually hire you to try and keep track of what happens as Sapphire's roleplay events.  That last one got really crazy and I was really confused so I had a hard time explaining it back to her later.  We're doing another one this coming Sunday (March 11) at 5 PM CST, so if you can come that would be amazing.  The plot is gonna involve curing a sudden outbreak of the flu that is sweeping across Equestria.


And speaking of big events!   TONIGHT TONIGHT TONIGHT one night only we'll be having a two for the price of one sale on parties and I'm talking PAR-TAHYS!

Our friend Woven (Commander/Discorded) will be returning from a recent vacation which has kept him away from Equestria and we're giving him a proper welcome back party at 6 PM CST.

Then, later on, probably around 8-9 PM CST, we'll be having a birthday spectacular for Scoots Shade (not the Scoots that's my forum buddy) who is a long time friend for a lot of us!  So please come and have a piece of orange cake!

Thanks Holiday! I'll be honored to keep track of Saph's roleplays.  :D

I'll try to be there, I need to check my calendar. But I'll probably be there, I first need to see what time it is when its in EST time.

Chapter 1: Broken Horn


Sapphire had just woken up with her horn broken! She called her friend Holiday Cheer to ask for help. Holiday Cheer called some other ponies, including me. We all met at the library in Ponydale, and looked for a cure. I finally found one, with my magic skills, I was sure I could pull it off with some help of Blue Cloud and other ponies to find the ingredients. We needed Poison Joke, Lavender Blossoms and some Magenta Leaves. Blue and his team searched for Poison Joke, Holiday and her team searched for Lavender Blossoms and me and my team searched for Magenta Leaves. Once we found them, we met back in the library and performed the spell. It worked, until I figured out that Poison Joke made it temporary, we had 24 hours until her horn exploded - her with it.

We found a risky spell, it was the only one that worked though. A unicorn had to give up their horn for Sapphire...
None volunteered. But I discovered that we could create a horn out of Pegasi Wings. Slash volunteered... we didn't know that it would kill him. Slash turned into an angel, and we tried to save him. We couldn't, though the LeaderOf TheAngels could. He decided to let Slash go through trials and if he passed he could leave, if he didn't he could never visit the mortal realm again.

Chapter 2: Flu Sweeping

It was March 11th in Equestria, all was well until a sudden flu outbreak infected all of Equestria. 6 were left though... Me, Blue Cloud, Holiday Cheer, Sapphire  MoonLight, Pastel Shades, and Amphram.

We all decided to split up to look for supplies and cures, Sapphire, Holiday and Blue went to Crystal Kingdom to look for cures in the library and to look for medical supplies in the hospital. I went to Cloudopolis, to go to my house becuase I have tons of books and to stop by the hospital. We all exchanged walkie talkies so we could talk to each other. Suddenly Amphram cut the signal saying "Common... **** Cure... ***** me... **** Bramble... ***********"

We didn't have time to save her, because Blue Sapphire and Holiday called in saying that a green cloud was forming over Equestria. I rushed to help, they were at the hospital. Suddenly something push Holiday off the roof and she sprained her hoof, with all this happening I also got infected... it wasn't a flu outbreak...

It was Swamp Fever.

We rushed to get a cure, honey from a Flash Bee hive. It worked, for a while. We left Sapphire there when something mysterious attacked her. She got moved to the bridge by the campsite and was unconcious. There was slashes everywhere, we woke her up and then something hit me. I didn't know what and neither did they, but it backfired the honey from the Flash Bees. It made me turn into the tree that drops the flower to make Swamp Fever. Sapphire tried to help but couldn't... then something weird happened.

I tensed up my tree limbs and suddenly disappeared. I landed at the Crystal Heart and galloped back, happy I was not a tree. Then I realized that Sapphire's wounds were familiar...

The same wounds Fizzlepop Berrytwist had. That means she was attacked by an Ursa Major.

CMC Scoots, I'll happily save you some cake.  It's still good.  Cloudy, thank you for the RP updates.  This is a fine place to post them. X3



Buuuuuut.  I just realized that TODAY is EQUESTRIAN NATIONAL PIE DAY! O:

This is Holiday Cheer's all time favoritest holiday of all time!  So I will be on LoE this evening handing out pie to each and every one of you ponies!  Have some pie and celebrate.


And I update a time for the St Patrick's day party, so please check that out.  (It's at 4PM CST on Saturday).

If anypony has good ideas for the Winter Wrap Up Event please share them.



And finally, some news.  It seems I have adopted a filly version of myself.  So if you see Lil Holiday around, please say hello and be kind to her.  Also if I ever get annoying with that, please please please tell me.  I don't want to be and I'm sure neither does Lil Holiday.

Hey everypony!  Unfortunately I don't have any exciting party updates at the moment but I have been working on new song lyrics.  Enjoy.



Holiday's Lullaby:

If I was a pegasus,
I'd fly you to a castle in the sky,
I'd carry you upon my wide wings,
So you could soar up in the clouds so high,

But sleep now, my little ponies,
Rest here in my embrace,
I love you, my little ponies,
And I'll always keep you safe,

If I was a unicorn,
I'd use my magic tricks to make you smile,
I could do anything at all for you,
And we could live in elegance and style,

But sleep now, my little ponies,
Rest here in my embrace,
I love you, my little ponies,
And I'll always keep you safe,

If I was an Alicorn,
I'd be strong enough to keep you safe from harm,
We'd live inside a castle tall,
And cuddle by a fire nice and warm,

But sleep now, my little ponies,
Rest here in my embrace,
I love you, my little ponies,
And I'll always keep you safe,

But I am just a simple earth pony,
With no wings or magic skills,
The only job I have, a party pony,
It's not much but it will pay the bills,

I want to build a life for you with my own hooves,
To always do everything you want to do,
I'll do the best I can so you can know,
That your mom with always love you,

So sleep now, my little ponies,
Rest here in my embrace,
I love you, my little ponies,
And I'll always keep you safe,
Always keep you safe.

@Holiday Cheer

Thanks for the cake! 0:) <3 *takes it and swallows the whole piece*

And you're really great at writing song lyrics! O: You should find a musician to sing them for you and add instrumentation!


QuoteI am in the process of planning a big time Easter special event right now that will probably be something like super special hide and seek (see my post in the Easter topic) but I promise it will be fun!

:/ Sounds like I need to get going and finally breathe life into my Hide & Seek events in time for Easter.....
Title: Re: Holiday Cheer Events And Party Planning
Post by: Holiday Cheer on 2018 Mar 23, 13:25:46
So this might be kind of a long post.  Got a few announcements and a story.   ^-^

First of all is an OOC type thing.  I probably won't be on LoE a ton in the upcoming weeks.  I mean I'm going to plan to be on there as much as I can and I want to.  I'm just moving soon and will need to be packing and dealing with life more and more as the date approaches.   What can you do? ono

Second, an LoE announcement for kind of a last minute thing but I'm throwing a special party tonight in honor of my friend and fellow party pony Fluffy Cloud who has just been feeling down lately and needs a boost.  Just feel free to stop by SCC this evening (US time, sorry my overseas friends) and say hello.


And finally, I keep intending to share the story of Midnight Roulette, but it's kind of difficult for me since it was traumatic.  I did sort of almost die.  But my friends tell me that pony has been sighted in Equestria again and I want everypony to know the story so they can be prepared.


On February 14th following my Hearts N Hooves Day Party, I was suddenly transported by magic to a dark place, trapped, and alone.  A black coated unicorn with a mane of firey red and gold appeared and introduced herself to me as Midnight Roulette.  She told me I was a mistake.  That my existence was a threat to the stability and peace of Equestria and that she was going to make sure that I couldn't hurt anypony.  I didn't understand what she meant.  I only want ponies to be happy and to celebrate friendships with each other.  I could never hurt anypony.  But Midnight insisted that as long as I was alive and in Equestria there would be problems, ponies would be disconnected from the world, there would be times when the entire world blinked out of existence, and finally the world itself would cease to exist.  I was then and am still afraid that what she told me might be true.

But this Midnight pony liked to play games and she gave the other ponies of Equestria a chance to save my life.  She appeared in SCC and provided riddles leading to places where she would meet the ponies who played her game and she would answer a question each night so that they could learn why she was doing this.  For four days she played this game and if on the final day they managed to solve her last riddle she would provide my location to them.  What they didn't know is that she was merely stalling for time, hoping that my strength would run out before they finished the game.

A group of ponies stepped forward to fight against this wicked game: Watermelon Zest, Jet Black, Nightdust Glow, Starburst, Tide Pod Pony, Slash, Gloomy Feathers, and Marshmallow Cactus to name a few (and if you were there and I've forgotten you please please please remind me because I want to honor you too).  Midnight's riddles lead them to the Roof of the Crystal Castle, The Rainbow Factory, The Carousel Boutique, and finally to her lair among the Dark Rocks in the Heartlands.  Each of these places chosen for symbolism to what she was trying to warn the ponies about. 

They asked about her motives and she explained that I was a mistake she was trying to correct.  She pleaded with the ponies to see her perspective but in the end they would not listen and she attempted to have the naiads of the Heartlands destroy the ponies for her.  In the end, Slash threatened to end her life and only then she revealed that I had only minutes remaining where she had left me among the Poison Joak fields of the Evershade Forest.  Midnight was able to escape as the ponies scrambled to save me, promising she would return to finish her work.

And it seems now she has.  I have foals now that I am worried for and a growing family.  I don't know how to protect them all from this wicked pony who seems to think that I am somehow responsible for all of Equestria's problems.

Title: Re: Holiday Cheer Events And Party Planning
Post by: Holiday Cheer on 2018 Mar 30, 10:39:01
You're sweet Cloudy and a good friend.  Thank you! X3


I have a couple updates and want to gush about something. 

First I'll be moving in a couple weeks and so probably won't be on LoE as much as I have been in the past for a little while.  I mean I'll probably still get really lonely for my ponies and come on there anyway, but I'm not planning any big events for a while. 


However, there is still the CMC Scoots Easter Egghead Hunt this weekend!  Sunday at 8PM EST (7PM CST, etc).  Please join us because it's sure to be egg-citing and will be the perfect way to enjoy and celebrate the new Winter Warm Up Event going on in the game!


Also there will be a wedding for Fwuttershy and Fire Blaster on Saturday, March 31 at 8PM CST at the Crystal Heart in Crystal Kingdom.  Please come and celebrate with these amazing ponies!  You know there will be an amazing afterparty too!


Finally, let me be a bit OOC for a moment here.  I have only just been learning about the MLP fandom over the last few months as I'm pretty brand new to the whole experience.  So I am finding out more and more about all the songs that were made years ago when the fandom was it's height.  I recently found The Chant of Mirth by 4everfreebrony and yes well I realize it's about Pinkie and while Holiday Cheer is as my friend Wordsmith loves to remind me 'a Pinkie recolor'.  I found these lyrics so definitive to her character:

"In this dream, there is no room for spite
Still it seems, only I can decide
I am lost, but am free of the world
For outside, all is bleak, all is cold"
Title: Re: Holiday Cheer Events And Party Planning
Post by: Holiday Cheer on 2018 Apr 10, 11:52:22
So been a while and things have been as busy as every in Equestria.  We've had a bunch more weddings but when I find out the night before I can't really advertise for ponies, so I'm sorry if you've been finding out late.  What I do have is more wedding and birthday announcements.



This Saturday, April 14 there will be a wedding for Raised Flag and Cloud Force inside the main chamber of The School For Gifted Unicorns.  The couple has not set a time to my knowledge, but you will be the first to know when I know.  This event will be formal and will require you to dress up.  It's going to be an interesting change of pace from the general wedding format we have so please consider attending.

Then the following Thursday, April 19 we will be celebrating the marriage of Downdraft Windraker and Private Frozen Wing.  More details on this one will be made available once these ponies decide them.  So check back!


Finally a birthday.  On April 15th we'll be having a fun party for Lens Flare at SCC at about 5PM CST.  So stop on by and dance with this pony who does a lot to entertain us and is a good friend to all.

So this last weekend didn't go to plan and for anypony who was confused by my announcements, I apologize.  Raised Flag and Cloud Force's wedding has been indefinitely postponed due to illness and irl activities and I will keep you up to date on that one.


The Downdraft and Frozen Wing wedding has also been postponed (love that word, post-'poned') and I will try and get a new date as soon as they come up with one.


Until then please keep an eye out for more Random Pony Appreciation Days parties.  I hear there might be one on Thursday. ;)


My move is scheduled for Saturday, so I won't be on that day likely and this week is kinda sketchy.


And finally since this time of year there are no big holidays to celebrate for a while, I'm planning some big events including but not limited to:

-A World Pony Martial Arts Tournament (for all of you who like to pretend to fight each other in SCC now you can actually do it).
-A rousing game of Pony-themed Jeopardy.
-Truth or Dare games in new and exciting locations other than SCC.
-And more.... O:


So be on the lookout for announcements about these things!

Hey everypony! Just wanted to drop in and say hi. Holiday Cheer, you might remember me as one Coronita who has been online quite a bit recently. I just want to say thank you for all the infectious positivity you put out there!

And those lyrics! Something about seeing someone I've met expressing their creativity makes me itch to do the same. So thank you again for helping fill my Recommended Daily Amount of inspiration this day!

Also: Hi Sapphire, Jet Black, Wordsmith and all the regulars out there! Sorry if I left anyone out, as I get to know you folks better I'll stop being so rudely forgetful :/

Cloudy Skies: Martial arts, eh? I recently found my old Judo instructor and have been so delighted to have such a powerful influence of mine back in my life. I feel like I have balance again! (no pun intended ;) So, yeah. Keep it up! It fills my heart with joy to see others practicing any martial arts. It's so good for you!

OK I'll stop gabbing now lol


Much love everypony,

Coronita

Post by: Holiday Cheer on 2018 Apr 18, 08:57:15
Cloudy, I came up with the tournament thing with you and Slash specifically in mind after seeing Jet's video of you two 'facing off'.  And the idea of it is to have it at the PVP arena.  Not sure how that will actually go since combat is still sorta, well, not great in LoE but we can set some rules for what you're allowed to do and it should be fine.

I'll probably have this one later in the summer, like late May or June or something though.  I'm pretty busy right now and want to make it special.  I also intend to have ponies do commentary, have spectators, and probably have some kind of silly dragon-ballesque plot to the whole thing just to make certain fans of that series happy.

Although I am curious what Martial Arts Cloudy practices?  I've never had the discipline myself, probably too much sugar. :D


Good to see you Cornoita.  You've definitely made an impression on me and the community yourself! ^_^

Hehe, thanks Cortonia.

Curious, eh Holiday? Time for some SUPREME MARTIAL ARTS! X3

I used to take Kungfu back in preschool and went all the way to Red Belt, but skipped orange. I still have all those old belts getting super dusty in a drawer XD
But now I take Aikido (Japanese) and a blue belt going on 3rd degree black belt.

Ah, all of these events coming up sound so exciting!!  ^-^ I especially can't wait for the Martial Arts Tournament!! I'd love to be a commentator! Actually, I'd even be excited just to attend the event! Eeeee!

I love the concepts of the events and I'm thrilled that you're planning them, Holiday!
If you ever need a helping hoof with anything, just let me know!  :3

Hi! So... you organise weddings? I'd like to have one in game with my significant other, as soon as we both have a stable connection and some free time... at the same time .
Spoiler: show
We actually just got married IRL and are in the process of moving together so it's kind of complicated.  X3 But that's ok, at least it gives me time to think of what I want for my our special day in Equestria!

I have a few ideas that maybe I could mention in a private message? I've never had the opportunity to see a wedding in game so I don't know what you ponies usually do.  :c
Title: Re: Holiday Cheer Events And Party Planning
Post by: Cloudy Skies on 2018 Apr 19, 12:12:00
 O:  Yay! A wedding is coming up probably! I come from a party planner family, but Cloudy isn't my oc party planner. If you need extra help planning besides Holiday, talk to mah OC Party Popper! :D

@Holiday Cheer

Quote from: Holiday Cheer on 2018 Apr 18, 08:57:15And the idea of it is to have it at the PVP arena.

You already planned to hold it there? I read your announcement up there completely wrong..... Embarrassing. X3
Title: Re: Holiday Cheer Events And Party Planning
Post by: Holiday Cheer on 2018 Apr 20, 10:41:39
Oh Scoots, it's no issue.  I just meant there's been a lot of aggression lately in SCC and other places (see Jet's Cloudy vs Slash) video and I felt like ponies could use a constructive place to battle.  Plus the PVP arena never gets used for anything and that place is really cool.


And it's great to see my good friend Jamie here too.  Of course 'sis', I can always use your help.


Diannaria, just let me know when you're thinking and we can make it happen.  Our resident wedding officiator (priest) Blue Cloud is currently enjoying a vacation, I think for at least another week, but there are plenty of good ponies who can help out.  Just think about where you'd like to have the wedding, a good date/time that works for both of you, and any other ponies/friends you'd like to have involved as best mare(s) or stallion(s).

And we can always talk in game too.  But I won't be on for the weekend at least as I'm moving and won't have Internet service for a few days.  :c
Title: Re: Holiday Cheer Events And Party Planning
Post by: Diannaria on 2018 Apr 20, 13:38:43
While definitely something we want to do, the wedding won't take place before several weeks, until we both have access to a satisfying Wi-Fi connection. We just both like planning things early. Thank you for offering your help!

And the martial arts tournament seems to have so much fun potential, I wish I could be there, and if not, that there will be more of them.  ^-^
Title: Re: Holiday Cheer Events And Party Planning
Post by: Holiday Cheer on 2018 Apr 24, 11:15:38
Well as you all probably know I've not shown my face in Equestria in a few days and won't be coming back just yet.  Just a quick announcement.


I would like to host a surprise make-up birthday for one of my (in-game) daughters Smoliday/Lil Holiday Cheer.  Her birthday was Monday and it would mean a lot to me if ponies could come to this.

I'd like to hold it on Thursday, April 26th at 7PM CST.  I would like as many ponies as possible given that it's been so quiet lately.  Fake or not, being able to have some kind of companionship in LoE has meant the world to me and I really want to thank my Lil Holiday with a great party!
Title: Re: Holiday Cheer Events And Party Planning

Title: Re: Holiday Cheer Events And Party Planning
Post by: Diannaria on 2018 Apr 24, 12:33:49
I'm in the middle of a super busy week and that birthday would be right at the end of it, so I'll try to see if I can get a good internet access that day. How long do you think it would last though? It's a bit too early in the night/morning for me, so maybe I can be a little late...  X3

Also if you need help drawing a couple for a wedding photo Holiday, I've been working hard arting people's OCs a lot, I could help you art the couple. I also have my own forum arting place, https://forum.legendsofequestria.com/index.php?topic=17786.0

I just started arting stuff and it's super fun actually!  ^-^
Title: Re: Holiday Cheer Events And Party Planning
Post by: Holiday Cheer on 2018 Apr 24, 17:06:43
Yeah most of these types of parties will be at SCC always.  Although I do definitely want to have more events other places.

And Diannaria, we'll be there for a good four hours or so probably, so if you can get on it would be lovely to meet you officially.

Cloudy, can you do me a favor and let ponies know I'm planning this party.  I'd love for Lil Holiday's birthday to go over well and I won't be around myself until tomorrow to advertise.  I'll keep ya in mind for arting stuff too.  Thankies.  ^-^

Also, who would you like me to invite? Because I could whisper to ponies or in Discord in a DM or in forums in PM. Or would you like me to post in global chat or post it on Discord or post a topic in forums?
Title: Re: Holiday Cheer Events And Party Planning
Post by: Diannaria on 2018 Apr 25, 01:03:10
If I can log in (shouldn't be much of a problem in the morning) and if I got the time right, I should be able to be there 3 hours after the beginning, maybe earlier if I go to sleep extra early, which I planned on doing anyway.  ^-^
Title: Re: Holiday Cheer Events And Party Planning
Post by: Holiday Cheer on 2018 Apr 25, 08:47:36
Cloudy, definitely don't need a forum post because, well, this IS a forum post. lol   But thank you.

But any of those other things are great.  Probably don't need to private message or whisper anypony either.  Just general announcements.  I'll be around tonight too for a little while (I hope) and I'll be able to let ponies know.  Thank you for any help!

Also also, taking a look at your arts.  Fantastic, but I have a question.  Why do you not put the 'talent' marks on anypony?  I understand with LoE ponies it might be hard to remember what they are (I don't even know what Jet's is), but with the Mane 6 I would think it would be easy.
Title: Re: Holiday Cheer Events And Party Planning
Post by: Cloudy Skies on 2018 Apr 25, 16:43:12
Oh whoops, just realized that. Huehue.  lol

Gotcha!! ^-^

Oh tank you! I don't bother putting talent marks on because I already work hard arting and doing a talent mark and getting it down straight is difficult for me.
Title: Re: Holiday Cheer Events And Party Planning
Post by: Holiday Cheer on 2018 May 01, 10:20:23
Once again it was a busy weekend for me in and out of Equestria, so I haven't had time to update this, but here's a few tidbits.

First of all if you haven't seen it yet.  A friend of mine and fellow holiday-themed pony Pumpkin Glow is hosting a campout this Thursday evening.  Check out her event page here:

https://forum.legendsofequestria.com/index.php?topic=17795.0 (https://forum.legendsofequestria.com/index.php?topic=17795.0)


Second due to the overwhelming response to the 'Pony Martial Arts Tournament' I will be planning that and trying to host it before the end of May.  Keep on the lookout for that.


Last night a group of ponies made a visit to Princess Luna and Princess Celestia at the Cantermore Castle and while they were there, Celestia gave out some tickets and announced that the Grand Galloping Gala season has started and the Gala will be held very soon.  So be on the lookout for that and consider yourself invited.


Lastly Saturday is May 5, celebrated by some as the holiday Cinco De Mayo.  Should we do something?

I looked up what that is and it's a war-related holiday. I'm not too keen on celebrating war. :s
Title: Re: Holiday Cheer Events And Party Planning
Post by: Pumpkin Glow on 2018 May 01, 13:01:10
Aw, thanks for the mention, Holiday!  ^-^  (By the way check your messages!  ;)  )


Quote[...]the Grand Galloping Gala season has started and the Gala will be held very soon.  So be on the lookout for that and consider yourself invited.

Oooh, exciting! Looking forward to it and hoping I can make it, even tho I am always kinda out of place at formal events.  X3


And if something is happening on the 5th I might be able to join for a bit. My guests leave around (my) midnight, which seems like the prime time for ponies to start popping into LoE anyway.  ^-^  (Though it will already be the 6th for me then.  :P )
Title: Re: Holiday Cheer Events And Party Planning
Post by: Holiday Cheer on 2018 May 02, 23:08:09
Scoots, we don't have to celebrate it as a war related holiday.  It is also a celebration of independence.  Sapphire can explain it better than me I fear but believe me, we're not celebrating it as a war holiday.  I would never do that.


Regardless, Saturday will be a busy day.  I have been asked to throw a wedding party for two ponies who were married but never got a chance to celebrate with loved ones.  Please come to SCC on Saturday May 5 at 11 AM CST to party with Downdraft and Frozen Windraker.  I know it's early but they can only be available at that time.



This isn't party related, but I've been working on this for ages and haven't been able to find the right words.  I was recently inspired to complete it.  Enjoy.

Broken Pieces

My life was born,
When you wished on a star,
To stop you from feeling alone,
I have so many questions,
You'll see as I grow,
Bringing love into this home,

We are all broken pieces,
Who have drifted apart,
But we fit together in the workings of the heart,

I was another,
Who need a place,
And you took me in that day,
To feel love of a mother,
And joy of a sister,
In kindness I will repay,

We are all broken pieces,
Who have drifted apart,
But we fit together in the workings of the heart,

I was young when I met you,
But as I grew,
I hoped that I could belong,
You needed a sibling,
To always be there,
In the joy of life and song,

We are all broken pieces,
Who have drifted apart,
But we fit together in the workings of the heart,

I was abandoned,
And left to my fate,
Darkness all I could see,
Then you were there,
And you brought me in close,
To the love of your family,

We are all broken pieces,
Who have drifted apart,
But we fit together in the workings of the heart,

Strength on the outside,
Is what they all see,
But they don't know who I am,
And from the beginning,
I knew that I loved you,
As only a brother can,

We are all broken pieces,
Who have drifted apart,
But we fit together in the workings of the heart,

For I am the one,
The lifter of hearts,
Bringer of laughter and song,
And despite their wishes,
I still feel alone,
With no place where I belong,

We are all broken pieces,
Who have drifted apart,
But we fit together in the workings of the heart,

There is one other,
Seeking a place,
Where love will never cease,
Our family needs you,
We wish you could be,
Another found broken piece.

So... I've looked it up and found several different Paris-Madrid times for 11AM CST. It's confusing.  :o I'll try to be there on time, hopefully it's not too late because I might be invited for dinner somewhere and I know that means I'll be gone for 3 to 4 hours... X3

Hey, so turns out there's like A MILLION pony birthdays in May.  Must have been a good month to be born! X3


So I was away on a trip and miss Healing Lavender's birthday.  So tonight May 11th, we are celebrating in SCC starting at 6PM CST with or without the guest of honor.  Please come.  If Snowbound can come it was his birthday yesterday, so we'll have a double party celebration!


And then on May 15th it's my Sister Jamie Cheer's birthday!  So there will be another party that night.  Probably about the same time (6PM CST).


And then finally, May 18 and May 20 are the birthdays of Blue and Fluffy Cloud respectively.  So even more amazing parties for amazing ponies!!!!!! O:
Title: Re: Holiday Cheer Events And Party Planning
Post by: Holiday Cheer on 2018 May 21, 13:27:00
Just wanted to say a big, huge special thank you to all the ponies who made this weekend a success and completely FULL of events even if I missed out on a lot of it. 

Sapphire Moonlight deserves some credit for her hard work setting up decorations for all of the birthday parties (Blue Cloud, Skye Love, and Fluffy Cloud's parties were this weekend).  Fluffy and Blue both help a ton with each other's parties too, being the happily wedded and party couple they are!  And Pumpkin Glow gave us another amazing Pumpkin Patch campout on Saturday full of tons of memories.


But now we look forward to the next Saturday, May 26th and the GRAND GALLOPING GALA. :D

Derpy is hard at work giving out tickets to all the ponies who are invited (it's everypony  ;) ) and we are putting the final touches on the planning.  The event begins at approximately 2PM CST but will go on all night pretty much.  For those of you who want some time translation:

3PM EST
2PM CST
1PM MST
12PM PST

For those ponies in Great Britain: 8PM
For those ponies in other parts of Europonia: 9PM
And I believe the GMT is 7PM but I don't really know how that works.

The Gala will be held on the grounds of the Cantermore Castle and will feature dancing, fine food, a closing and opening ceremony, and (possibly) a performance by the Wonderbolts.  So don't miss out!

The Grand Galloping Gala is coming along amazingly, but there's one thing that been bothering me.  I seem to have forgotten one of the most important and amazing parts of the Gala. ovO


THE CONTEST!!!!!!


That's right everypony.  We will be holding a contest of creative talent up to and during the Gala.  Ponies are invited to submit entries for art/gifs/written works/videos relating to the Grand Galloping Gala 2018.  Please submit them either to myself (HolidayCheer #7188) on Discord or provide a link when you see me or Sapphire Moonlight in game (in whisper).  We will be voting on the best entries and the winners will have their work displayed here on the forum as well as the recognition from the LoE community for your skills.  Looking forward to seeing what you ponies can come up with!

Thank you so much everypony that contributed to making the Gala super special.  I wrote up a very sappy Discord post about it already but I especially want to thank Even Tide, Sapphire Moonlight, Blue Cloud, Twilight Nova, Dandelion Fluff, Aquatic Showers, The Guardian, Random Fandom, and Derpy.  There were about five more wonderbolt ponies who are amazing too and I forget all your names all the time.  I love you guys and your hard work and effort.


Now we are looking toward the future!  As I mentioned (I think  ovO ) today there will be a birthday party for a great pony named Sky Biscuit.  But don't ask me about that, ask Jet Black as he's running the show on that one.  If you see that pony, be sure to wish her a happy birthday!

Getting sorta low on birthdays, so if you have one in June please please please let me know!


Right now plans are in motion for two huge events!  The Summer Sun Celebration which will be held on around June 21st which is the day of the summer solstace.  And the Equestria Games which will be a weekish long celebration of competition and may or may not include the aforementioned fighting tournament.  There is a Discord link for the planning if you want to be involved or just see what goes on behind the scenes on Even Tide's planning topic so go check that out.  More details will be made available as they happen!


And finally on Sunday, June 10th, there will be a big Graduation Party event for all the ponies who are graduating from some form of school this year!  It will be held in the square outside of SCC at about 2PM CDT and there will be lots of free food and socializing with some great ponies.  If you want to be celebrated please let me know so I can include you on the list of honorees.  Graduating from school is a tough thing and we want you to know you're amazing! <3

Valex - I would prefer one submission.  You can do multiple and show them all to us, but pick your best one as the submission.

Diannaria - You wouldn't need to be at every practice session from what I understand from previous shows.  As long as you can pick up the routine, which I believe is pretty simple.

One small question, do the screenshots need to have a pony in them or can they be in first person or cinema cammed?
Edit: Thought of another question. What exactly counts as sunrise or moon rise? How high up can the sun or moon be before it's no longer sun/moon rise?
Title: Re: Holiday Cheer Events And Party Planning
Post by: Holiday Cheer on 2018 Jun 19, 15:02:09
I can answer both your excellent questions with the same answer. ^-^


Basically I am opening this up to anything featuring the sun/moon.  So it can be just the scenery with no ponies, be the moon/sun in any position, or be a picture of sompony's flank mooning the camera.

((Just kidding about that last one. :D )

In case any pony missed it or can't check the poll to see the results of our photo contest, the winner(s) by popular vote were:

PUMPKIN GLOW AND PUMPKIN SEEDS in a tie of 6 votes each!  These ponies were congratulated by Princess Celestia at the event. 

Thank you to everypony who sent in photos and participated in the event.  Everything went great.  Special thanks to Blue Cloud, Even Tide, Berry Shade, CMC Scootaloo, all the Wonderbolts and other ponies who helped with the planning, and Sapphire Moonlight who contributed ideas and would have been part of the airshow if her computer was not down right now.

We also had an honorable mention for the photo contest, Woven.  These are his entries that were submitted just a little late to be included in the voting:

I wanted to again thank everypony who helped put on the events of the last weekend.  Both of them were a tremendous success and it wouldn't have happened without Even Tide, Blue Cloud, Pumpkin Glow, Sapphire Moonlight, Berry Shade, and some many others who volunteered their time and effort to making these a success!  Thank you from the bottom of my pony heart. X3



In the not so distant future be prepared for THE EQUESTRIA GAMES> A week long celebration of the joy of competition and teamwork, coming soon to an LoE near you.  There will be an information and team forming meeting likely in the next couple of weeks and the actual event will occur in late July. 


And on July 1, we will be having a WELCOME BACK party for our friend and fellow event planning pony Sapphire Moonlight who has been suffering from some major computer issues.  I hope to see you all there to support a fellow pony who has been stranded without LoE for a couple of weeks.  O:

Got some BIG NEWS for all you ponies regarding the EQUESTRIA GAMES.



On Sunday, July 8th at 7PM GMT there will be an Information Meeting at the Crystal Kingdom Stadium to officially kick off the games by announcing the events and to start getting ponies organized into teams.   o.O

The Games themselves are coming soon starting with an Opening Ceremony and then continuing throughout the week.  All the information on events, dates, times, and everything else for this week long in game experience will posted to a separate forum topic which will be created soon, so please continue to check back for that information. ^-^

However there are things YOU can start doing now.  There will be a PHOTO CONTEST for the Games similar to the one for the Summer Sun Festival.  The theme of this contest is Teamwork.  The 4 ponies who best capture this theme will be awarded points for their team (if competing) and will be given the honor of sitting in the coveted thrones during the Opening and Closing Ceremonies.  The Princesses have graciously offered these seats to our lucky winners for this occasion.  Please submit your entries here or send them to me (HolidayCheer #7188) on Discord.  ovO

We are going to need tons of volunteers to help officiate rules, to help keep track of ponies, and generally make this an amazing event so please feel free to volunteer at any time (I can even pay you in bits for your service if you want).   :]

Hope to see you Sunday! :D

The meeting isn't mandatory to participate in the games, it's just to give ponies some information about the Games, but all that will be posted here after too.  So no worries.

I also have this exciting poll available now that you can use to vote for the week that you would like the Equestria Games to be held.  Please vote for the week you won't be on vacation and you will be most available to participate in the Games:

VOTE FOR THE WEEK OF THE EQUESTRIA GAMES (https://www.strawpoll.me/16037278)
Title: Re: Holiday Cheer Events And Party Planning
Post by: Holiday Cheer on 2018 Jul 08, 16:30:43
From the meeting we had earlier today here is the information you need to know on the Equestria Games.  Please vote in the poll to help us set the week of the Games.

The Games will kick off with an Opening Ceremony where the winners of the Photo Contest will sit on the Thrones and any Foals that want to perform a flag ceremony to earn points for their team will be given the chance to do that.  We will welcome everypony to the Games and lay out the event schedule.

The existing teams as of right now are Ponydale and Cloudopolis but we would like at least one more and you can join any of the existing teams too. 

The events for the Games with maps of the routes are shown below, note that the Unicorn Teleport Race will be one of two courses and the final has not been determined yet:


All-Team Events:

Heartlands Relay Race
Stick to the paths, no bunny hopping or shortcuts. Race will start and end at Midway Village. First pony will run to the second pony, second to the third who will complete the race. Each pony will be a different species, IE earth, pegasus and unicorn in that order.

I feel that this one needs some clarification.  The race was intended to be run as follows:

1. Earth Pony on foot to the wheat farm area.
2. Pegasus on wing following the roads to the Cloudopolis gates.
3. Unicorn on foot or teleports back to Midway.

No shortcuts, bunny hopping, performance enhancing items, or other cheating.

(https://preview.ibb.co/cvDacT/Relay_Race.png)[/url]
 
Heartlands Cross-Country Race
A one-lap free-for-all race around the Heartlands against everyone else, win points for yourself and for your team by finishing first, second or third.

(https://preview.ibb.co/d9COWo/Cross_Country.png)[/url]
 
Heartlands PVP Pillow Tag
Two teams face off in the PVP arena and 'tag' eachother with pillows. If someone is tagged, they're out. Last team standing wins.

Earthie Events:

Crystal Kingdom Hoof-Race
Two laps of the outer ring, stay on the road, don't use the sidewalks. Staying on the sidewalk for longer than 5 seconds or going out even further results being disqualified. No bunnyhopping, Also, slowing down the race by not allowing runners to hop makes it easier for judges to oversee the race.  Start and finish are by the hospital.
 
(https://preview.ibb.co/fiUqu8/CK_Race.png) (https://ibb.co/cXJTgo)

Heartlands Triathalon
A three-pony relay race across the Heartlands.  I apologize for changing this again but it's going back to all Earth Ponies with a slight route modification.  The race will consist of a running portion, a climbing portion, and a swimming portion in THAT new order.

Starts in Midway with the first pony running along the road until the crater. The second pony will meet them at the crater and climb the spiral  structure and until they reach the highest rope.  They then cross the rope, where at the end they jump down and head to the river. The third pony will then race down the river and finish at the tree near to the farm.
 
(https://preview.ibb.co/eOMTxT/Triathalon.png) (https://ibb.co/k3sqBo)



Unicorn Events:

Obstacle Course
Unicorns do three laps around the obstacle course, gaining points for clearing each obstacle. Penalty points will be given for running off-course or failing to clear a jump.

(https://preview.ibb.co/j2uRj8/Unicorn_Obstacles.png) (https://ibb.co/bZOacT)
 
Heartlands  Teleportation Race
Unicorns teleport from one spot to another in order to get around.  The farm route has been declared as the final track.

1. No moving is allowed except for turning on the spot or adjusting the camera.
2. The competitors must at the least teleport to each of the 4 largest structures on the farm. 
3. If a competitor falls to the ground, they must run back to the start location and begin their lap again.
4. The race will consist of three laps around the farm.

(https://preview.ibb.co/d01TxT/Unicorn_Teleport_1.png) (https://ibb.co/iGOxro)



Pegasus Events:

Cloudoseum Air Show
In teams of no less than two and no more than six, pegasi put together a show that has a maximum of five sequences. Teams should give themselves a name and also become comfortable with using the 'party' feature, a group chat tab that will allow up to six users to talk amongst themselves.
Sequences are counted from the moment the first pegasus takes flight to where the last pegasus lands. Any moves or maneuvers can be used as long as team members can make it to a rest point without emptying their energy.
Performances will be judged by four selected ponies and points will be awarded on creativity, ability to perform and interactivity with the crowd. Their scores will be between 1 - 10 and will add up to a final score.
Penalties will be given if ponies leave the Cloudoseum space, fall below the clouds, perform out of sync or if team members are excluded from a sequence / don't turn up.
Crowds can choose to sit where they please but are advised to use a route at the back of the Cloudoseum to climb up onto the roof, which allows access of the top bunk of clouds. Earth ponies can jump onto one particular cloud at the bottom bunk if they choose to, where they can maneuver to the clouds on opposite sides.
 
Flight Race
Pegasi race against eachother using the map provided and end in the cup next to the flight ring statue. Crowds can sit in the buildings either side of the race track.

1. EDIT TO THE ROUTE: Instead of making the turn half way through the second lap, just make three complete laps around and through the rings and end in the cup on the statue.
2. When taking off please stay on the runway until the end then make the sharp left turn.
3. Fly through all loops including the loop of the statue.
4. You may fly above or below the cloud bridge, but be aware if you stay above it you must stay outside of the buildings and yellow flags so as not to give yourself an unfair advantage.

What Week Should We Host The Equestria Games? (https://www.strawpoll.me/16054380)
Title: Re: Holiday Cheer Events And Party Planning
Post by: Holiday Cheer on 2018 Jul 13, 08:48:25
We will be having another birthday party for Frozen Wing and Wizard Bee Bun on Sunday, July 15 at 8PM GMT (3PM CDT) so please come and celebrate these ponies.


Due to the overwhelming response for the games to be held the week of July 22-28 that will be the official date of the Equestria Games.  The Opening Ceremony will be held mid afternoon (for Amareicans, late Evening for Europonians) on that Sunday, we will have an official time for you soon.

In the meantime we still need ponies to sign up to join a team so you can get to know your teammates and practice ahead of time for events.  The Pegasi airshow definitely will require some level of practice and you may want to brush up on your teleportation for unicorns, flight stamina for pegasi, and climbing skills for earth ponies before the events.  Also work on your best stealthy pillow techniques.  Never fear though, if you show up to an event and have no clue what this teams thing is all about and want to join anyway, you can easily step into the event on any team you want, you just won't have the advantage of having trained.

Just tried the flight race (do you go under or over the starting point for lap 2?), and I found a problem where the race finishes. If you land on the platform a certain way it launches you backwards off it. Out of the 4 times I tried it did it to me twice.
Title: Re: Holiday Cheer Events And Party Planning
Post by: Holiday Cheer on 2018 Jul 16, 09:10:12
Chrome, these are good things to know.  I'll pass them along to the event planning group.  I assume for the lap 2 question that will be left up to the discretion of the racer.  Maybe we'll have to change the finish location to a more solid platform.  ^-^



Don't forget, the Opening Ceremony will be held next Sunday, July 22.  I am looking at 9PM GMT for the starting time.  Does anypony have issues with this time?   Please speak up now.

Here's a few things me and members of the team I'm on are wondering:

*As I mentioned before: In the Heartland teleportation race: What are the exact objects we teleport to at the pumpkin patch one?

*On the Cloudsdale flight race: Do you go through or over the ring with the statue (where the race ends) on the 1st lap? And do you pass under or over the cloud bridge on the 2nd and 3rd laps?
Title: Re: Holiday Cheer Events And Party Planning
Post by: Sky Arrow on 2018 Jul 19, 14:38:27
Sort of a follow up to Chrome's question. The benches (assuming they are teleport spots) are really hard to teleport on top of. As in, only a few pixels. If we end up teleporting right next to them, will that count for points off due to touching the ground?
Title: Re: Holiday Cheer Events And Party Planning
Post by: Diannaria on 2018 Jul 19, 15:47:23
How sad that there is no Canterlot team yet! It's the one I would have preferred joining. There's no Wi-Fi where I'll be spending that week which is why I was really hoping it would happen another week.  :c I hope I'll find a way to at least watch a few games, somehow. Have fun everypony!
Title: Re: Holiday Cheer Events And Party Planning
Post by: Holiday Cheer on 2018 Jul 20, 14:31:48
Dannaria, we decided that the Cantermore team would prefer to observe all of the others getting sweaty and sip their tea from the shade. ;D

Fluttershy, I was told Pink Pony but I think you're right so I edited it.

Regarding the unicorn teleport race.  I'll be honest I didn't write these rules so I have very little idea of how it was intended to work.  I'll try to get some definite answers but for now it looks like the farm teleport race is the preferred track.  If the benches are hard to teleport to I'm sure we can be lenient. 

Chrome, regarding the air race.  I don't think there's an exact course you need to stick to.  It will be up to the race to choose that and a mistake might cost you your lead so that's the strategy in what you do.

Thank you to all of the ponies who attended the Equestria Games and helped make it a great event!

But now we're looking forward to a new month full of the possibility for new events and birthdays!


We'll be having a party for Sapphire Moonlight's 3-Year LoE Anniversary tomorrow, Monday July 30 at 11PM GMT (6PM CDT) outside of SCC.  Please stop by to support somepony who this will mean a lot to.  Might be some fun games in store.  ;)

I have been on a hiatus do to irl stuff for a while and occasionally getting on to enjoy the new update, but now I am back for real and it's time to resume parties and events.  :D


This Saturday, August 25 at 6PM GMT (12PM CDT) at the Cantermore Castle steps there will be a farewell party in honor of Mistletoe Charm.  This is very important to her that you come and listen to what she has to say so please attend.


There is an upcoming major event, the LoE/MLP Anniversary Party (September 10 I think) and there will be a huge Wonderbolts Airshow that will be unlike anything you've seen before.  Stay tuned here for more information about upcoming details.  ^-^
Title: Re: Holiday Cheer Events And Party Planning
Post by: Holiday Cheer on 2018 Aug 26, 20:53:55
Sorry for what may seem like spam but there are events coming up that concern you.  We are pleased to present to ponies of all ages:

THE FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS

An idea that came from the idea that the LoE Dev Team invented an in game festival that has no real world equivalent.  So it needs an LoE Equivalent Celebration. 

So please join myself and Pumpkin Glow at the Crystal Heart in the Crystal Kingdom on Saturday September 1 at 8PM GMT (3PM CDT) for this event which will mostly consist of a parade and a hangout at the CK Cave, but which will also consist of trying to make a tower of ponies holding lanterns. 

Please bring a Prismatic Lantern from Ensemble if you have one.  If not, a couple lanterns can be provided.  We would like for every participant to have a lantern so we can maximize the beautiful lights that this event is named for. 

Hope to see you then.  X3

Good to see that the planning on here is still alive! O:  And it looks like a lot of cool events will be here too! I may or may not be able to attend them due to my computer having an problem with the hard drive and stuff. So may not be on LoE. Hope I can make it. Oh and Mistletoe is gone :o  I'll miss that silly hat pone. She had the best hat around! ^-^  (PS! I'm using my old smol computer for now so if I make it on this thing might not talk much because lag things!)

I want to do tight-rope walking, but I couldn't find any banners in the Ruined City so idk

Ah, I was wondering who that Encore pony was who was sitting off to the side by themself.  That's awesome Tobias, your video is amazing and if I may share it with others I would very much like to.


Chrome, I was thinking ponies could do things like tell jokes or stories, make elaborate stack formations, or do some kind of roleplayed action 'I play a piano concerto somehow with my hooves, it's great'.  Should be a fun experience and I hope that many can attend.

Don't forget, the party is Monday September 10 at 9PM GMT.  I understand there will also be some other activities besides the talent show and airshow, so please attend and help celebrate LoE getting 1 year older!

We are super excited to announce...THE RUNNING OF THE LEAVES!  :D

(https://preview.ibb.co/giuD7K/Running_of_the_Leaves_Map.jpg) (https://ibb.co/e3bh1e)


This exciting event will celebrate the beginning of Autumn in Equestria as we run through the forests of the Heartlands and use the pounding of our hooves on the ground to shake the leaves from the trees so the season can officially begin. 

The event will take place THIS SATURDAY September 22 at 8PM GMT (3PM CDT, 9PM Great Britain).

Ponies will meet up at the Graveyard in the Heartland near the Cantermore portal and run along the designated route to the Pumpkin Patch at the south end of the Heartlands where we'll be having a party to celebrate the start of Autumn.  There will be pumpkin pies and plenty of cider to go around so don't miss out!  :]

In light of all of the recent events and negativity plaguing Equestria recently, Holiday Cheer would like to announce the Festival of Friendship.  This event will take place sometime in November following all of the Nightmare Night festivities (more details on this stuff is coming soon, promise  ;) ).  The focus of the Festival of Friendship will be to give individual ponies a chance to tell stories and relate events about positive experiences you have had while playing Legends of Equestria.  Whether that be the new friends you've made, the adventures you've gone on, some generally touching event that happened, or anything else that you would like to share.  This is focused on positivity so please keep that in mind and start thinking about what you might want to talk about. <3  :D

Post by: Holiday Cheer on 2018 Oct 16, 22:57:16
Ok so I know I've been silent on here for a while and I know there's been a ton of ponies wondering two things:

1. When are the bat pony wings/fangs gonna be available.  lol
2. When are all the Nightmare Night events.  ;)

Well here it is for all your spooky needs, the full lineup of events for the week leading up to and including Nightmare Night!  This is the full schedule of events as I know them.  I hope you are ready for some spooks!

A Note: Some of these events do not have times assigned to them and this will be edited as this information becomes available!

October 25th @ 9PM GMT: You know them as the Wonderbolts but Nightmare Night has transformed them into the SHADOWBOLTS.  These normally happy and fun ponies have created a devilish airshow event that is guaranteed to frighten and delight.

October 26th @ 9PM GMT: A Nightmare Night Hide and Seek Event hosted by the Princess of Friendship herself.  This is sure to be interesting.

October 27th @ 8PM GMT: Nightmare Rush, a game of danger and adventure.  Can you and your team of friends dare to brave the horrors that lurk within Bramble Woods without any of the usual things that would protect you?  Compete to see how far you can go and if you can win the ultimate prizes.

October 28th @ 10PM GMT: Just a group of ponies gathered around a nice campfire to tell some nice stories and have a good time.  Absolutely nothing terrifying about this.   ;)  Except that it's going to take place in a graveyard.  And it's going to be at night.  And the stories will all be scary.  So come and find out what's in store for you.  ovO

October 30th @ 10:30PM GMT:  A Treasure Hunting game with fabulous prizes hosted by Melody SweetHeart.

October 31st @ 11:30PM GMT: A Nightmare Night Costume Contest and Fashion Show to be hosted by party pony extraordinaire Sapphire Moonlight and her panel of judges.  The complete rules for costumes will be posted soon but start coming up with ideas for individual or group costumes.  This is sure to be a scary good time.

And following the contest, you'll get a chance to show off your costume and your dance moves at the all night dance party! (which may or may not go all night  :D )



So please join us and help make Nightmare Night amazing and fun!

Very much looking forward to all of them.

Nightmare Rush and the treasure hunt sound like lots of fun and I am sure the air show will be a total treat again!  ^-^

Just a bump because I updated all the times for the Nightmare Night events.  We'll have a promo coming soon.

I don't know the details for the treasure hunt or hide and seek games (or most of the events for that matter), but ask Berry Shade, Even Tide (Goomie), LeadMare (Pegafilly Twilight), or Melody Sweetheart.  They've been involved in most of the planning for these wonderful events!  X3

Uhm the game keeps telling me there is no character selection server up right now and its almost time for Treasure Hunt!! T_T
Title: Re: Holiday Cheer Events And Party Planning
Post by: Frisktaker on 2018 Oct 31, 07:00:19
so, the treasure hunt was...certainly an experience. Does the server <i>usually</i> explode at these events? Was definitely a surprise to come into the Heartlands for the first time and find it so jam packed with people. And yes, it was my first time. I have only been playing for a few days. So I wasn't very good at the riddles. Come to think of it, I don't think I got the rest of the prizes from my team. Oh well, not like I contributed to the team in any meaningful way.
I was Jet Star, by the way.

Probably not going to show up to today's event. Only clothes I have are sunglasses and some gold armor pieces. Well, I might watch. Odds are I'm going to be spawning right where it's going to be anyway. Assuming it is still at the village, that is. No other place was specified, so I will assume. Which is good, as I don't know how to get to anywhere else. Heartlands is big, yo.

If you are worried about not having a costume for the costume contest and the fashion show, you can also check out my Trick or Treat event in Ponyville:

https://forum.legendsofequestria.com/index.php?topic=18015.0

Costume or not, you are invited to participate.^^ Just make sure to come as a foal.^^ It starts at 7 PM EDT / 11 PM GMT in front of Sugarcube Corner in Ponyville.

You actually did help a bit. You did get most of them right though the riddle with the drip dropping fuzzy sound was by far the hardest.

Ponies of Equestria!  The time has come for a celebration of all the players who make Legends of Equestria a great place to be.  On November 24, 2018 we will be hosting WorldWide LoE Day.  This event will allow you, the ponies of Equestria, to tell your stories about your time in Equestria and what that has meant to you. 

It will also feature an exciting voting contest.  Nominations have been taken for the following categories and now it is time to vote for your favorites in each category, with the winners receiving special honors at the event!  So please vote now before November 24, so we can celebrate the ponies who make this place amazing!

UPDATE: Lens Flare was kind enough to remake the polls so we could include write in votes because apparently Strawpoll requires you to log in with Facebook.  Please use the link in his post below to vote!  Thank you all so much!

interesting. I notice that you yourself are not an option for any of these. Really, I don't know most of the people on these polls, so I voted for the ones I did know.
Incidentally, where will this celebration take place? Sugarcane Corner? And at what time?
Title: Re: Holiday Cheer Events And Party Planning
Post by: Holiday Cheer on 2018 Nov 04, 13:43:20
This is a good point, thanks Frisktaker.  I did forget that.  I also had to fix the Best Artist poll, so anypony who voted earlier will have to revote on that on. 

The WorldWide LoE Day Celebration will take place at the Heartlands Ruined City Stage.  The time will be announced later.


And one more event to note!  On November 11 at 11:30 PM GMT please come to the Cloudopolis Blimp area to help us in celebrating Old Autumn's Eve (based on the irl holiday St. Martin's Day).  Bring a lantern/torch and some snacks to trade.  We will parade through Cloudopolis and trade some treats with each other before having a nice party to end the evening.  This is sure to be a fun event for all ages!  :D

I made a new poll on Google Forms (link below) so now ponies can choose "Other" without having to use their Facebook accounts. Ponies who have voted unfortunately have to vote again and those who haven't, I strongly encourage you to do so. Terribly sorry for the inconvenience.
I hope to see you all at the event!

Title: Re: Holiday Cheer Events And Party Planning
Post by: Holiday Cheer on 2018 Nov 07, 11:39:48
Hey all.  I know I've been spamming a lot of events lately, but I wanted to mention something because it would be really cool if any ponies who like roleplaying were able to come.  I've been trying to get a more involved and active roleplaying community going on LoE for a while now, with a more action oriented focus.  As I know we have the Sweet & Elite Roleplay which is amazing and Toot Sweet does such a great job with but (and I have never been to one due to time constraints) from what I understand these are more often than not slice of life and very casual one time events that sometime have a little longer plot. 

So you've probably all heard of The Witchmaster by now and you might be sick of him.  But if you're curious at all, there will be a very large RP event on Friday November 9th at 930PM CDT (230AM GMT) which will begin in Ponydale outside of SCC.  It's sort of a 'season finale' type event.

This is in no way an attempt to overshadow Sweet & Elite.  Please help them celebrate their anniversary.  These ponies have done so much for LoE and making it a fun place with an active community.  X3
Title: Re: Holiday Cheer Events And Party Planning
Post by: Frisktaker on 2018 Nov 08, 20:46:25
actually, this is the first I have heard of The Witchmaster. That said, I tend to spend most of my online time sitting on a bench outside scc, so as long as I'm online at the time and in the right instance, I'll probably watch it and be very confused.
Title: Re: Holiday Cheer Events And Party Planning
Post by: Holiday Cheer on 2018 Nov 09, 00:01:44
The date/time of the RP event is subject to change now.  Probably won't be tomorrow.  I'll keep you updated when I know more.
Title: Re: Holiday Cheer Events And Party Planning
Post by: Holiday Cheer on 2018 Nov 15, 08:56:14
So a few updates on some things that are upcoming and you need to know about.

First of all today starting at 5:30 PM CST/ 11:30 PM GMT there will be an event in Cantermore Fountain Plaza that is meant to be a celebration of the United States baseball all stars playing in Japan.  There will be a parade, hide and seek, and some other fun events and snacks.  This is brought to you by Sapphire Moonlight and Pegafilly Twilight.  Please come and enjoy.


Tomorrow, Friday at 5:00 PM CST/ 11:00 PM GMT will be the aforementioned season finale of The Witchmaster's Key.  Come and enjoy.


And Saturday, November 17th please join us in the Heartlands PVP zone for a fun event and party.  If you want to know more about this event, please contact me via PM or on Discord.  I'll have the time up very soon.
Title: Re: Holiday Cheer Events And Party Planning
Post by: Holiday Cheer on 2018 Nov 21, 09:34:34
Hey everypony.  Got some big things coming up that I wanted to make you aware of.



Tomorrow is Amareican Thanksgiving and while that's pretty exciting for some, there are many of our player base who either don't celebrate the day or don't have anypony to celebrate it with.  So you are cordially invited to an Equestria Friendship gathering at the Ponydale Schoolhouse on Thursday November 22 at 10PM GMT/4PM CST to spend time with your pony family just hanging out and gathering to show each other that we care and that there is always a place for anypony who needs us.


On Friday, November 23 there is a birthday party for Sunny Skies.  Please gather at SCC at 9PM GMT.  You won't want to miss out on this one.  Sunny is a valued member of the community and is responsible for planning most of the Wonderbolts shows you see at events.  This will be a very special birthday.


And don't forget that Worldwide LoE Day is November 24.  If you haven't voted in our polls yet, please do so at the link above. This event will take place at the Heartlands Stage at 8PM GMT (time subject to change).  Please come and share/listen to stories about pony's adventures in LoE as we celebrate what we are thankful for most in this community.


Also see the front page about the rebranding of this topic.  I am not the only pony who plans and runs these events and it's important that the community recognize that.  So from now on, I am part of an organization called P.O.N.I.

Oddly enough this idea was pitched before the MLP Holiday Special aired.  We just didn't have a name other than 'secret Santa'.  But anyway, here's how this works.  Ponies will be given the name of another pony who they need to get a gift for, any gift will do but you could always try to get to know the pony and get them something special that they will appreciate.  You can also trade names if you want but you can't reveal who you have to anypony.  ;)   Near Hearthswarming we will have a party where we will exchange our gifts with one another.  :D

So what I need from everypony is to know if you want to participate in this so we can put your name in the pool.  Then we'll randomly draw the names on December 15th and hand them out to everypony so they know who to buy a gift for.  Let me or another member of PONI know here, on Discord, on any server I'm in, or in game.  Thanks and I look forward to a fun holiday season with you.

Oooh! I wanna participate! That being said I have a tendency to miss out on certain events because of irl reasons. Is there something I can do just in case I have to miss out gift giving day (like maybe hunt down the pony to give them their gift or something safer lol)?

Not sure if this is answered somewhere else...I couldn't find it anywhere...but who are the members of P.O.N.I?

Post by: Holiday Cheer on 2018 Dec 14, 23:45:48
Ok sorry answering these questions took so long.  First of all Mint, yes I think it's fine to just hunt the pony down and give them their gift.  I can work with you to help you find them and possibly to even make the event so no worries ^_^ 

Starry, the current members of P.O.N.I. as I know them are:

Berry Shade
Melody Sweetheart
Third Edit
Lens Flare
Even Tide
Sunny Skies
Wordsmith
Blue Cloud
LeadMare

Though Even and Word I think would consider themselves more 'helpers' than actual event organizers.


Now also regarding the Hearthswarming Helper.  Tomorrow is the day I will be handing out your names so please please please if you want to be included let me or one of the ponies above know somehow.  I will either Discord message or PM you on here with your pony.  Then the actual gift exchange party will be held on the 22nd at a time TBD.  Thanks.  ^-^

This is just a bump so ponies won't forget about events under the pile of 'how to fix this bug with the new update' topics  :]


However there are big things in the works.  Very soon, there will be an official announcement for the EQUESTRIA WINTER GAMES.


Also there are some birthday parties coming up.

December 28th at 9PM GMT - Starline Infinity
December 29th time TBD - Spring Strudel/Frisktaker
January 1st at 11PM GMT - Pumpkin Glow

Hello.

Has it been determined when Frisktaker's birthday party will start? Also, is there anything I need to know about how these parties work? Do I need to prepare anything? It is the first party I plan to attend.

If I don't read anything, I'll assume that the party starts at 9PM GMT. Also, is the location of the party already planned?

Thanks in advance for your reply.

ATTENTION EVERYPONY!

The Winter Equestria Games need your help.  We need to be able to hold the Games, but in order to do that we need to know what times will be the best for the ponies who want to participate and watch the Games.  Please vote in the following poll for the best times to hold the earlier and later session.  Please vote ASAP so we can set these times up!

Big News.  We have officially settled on the Event Schedule and Times for the Equestria Winter Games.


As shown in our beautiful promotional graphic (courtesy of Gloomy Feathers  :P ), the Opening Ceremony will be held Thursday, February 21 at 10PM GMT.  This will begin at the Crystal Kingdom Stadium and will feature a parade to Ponydale the Official Host of the Winter Games.

Then the following three days (Feb 22 - 24), there will be a earlier session and a later session for all events.  This does not mean you need to attend both.  This means the same events will be repeated at these times so more ponies can attend and participate.

Early Sessions will be held at 7PM GMT/2PM EST/1PM CST/12PM MST/11AM PST
Late Sessions will be held at 10PM GMT/5PM EST/4PM CST/3PM MST/2PM PST

There are some slight changes to the previously announced event schedule:

Friday, February 22:
Flight Race
Scavenger Hunt Race

Saturday, February 23:
Foal Ice Curling
Stacking Race

Sunday, February 24:
Ice Skating Races (separate races for Pegasi, Earth Ponies, and Unicorns.  Full race if time permits)
Closing Ceremonies (will be following the late session this day)


We hope to see as many ponies at the Games as possible and wish the best of luck to all teams!

THE EQUESTRIA WINTER GAMES ARE OFFICIALLY WRAPPED UP. 

I would like to thank all of the participants especially those those devoted weeks of their lives to working hard at training for the Games or planning the rules and other activities for the Games.

I would like to thank the members of PONI, especially Berry Shade and Even Tide who single hoofedly ran most of the events for the Games and without who we would not have had this amazing event.

I would like to thank our trafficorn volunteers: Optic Rainfall, Ivory Nightfall, Pumpkin Glow, Healing Lavender, Aurora Gem, and Shoo De Boop who helped keep the rules on track during the events.

I would like to thank the ponies who threw the afterparties between the Games days, ponies like Random Fandom and Flutter Fly.

And lastly I would like to thank our winners:

4th: Cantermore 25 overall points
3rd: Tartarus 27 overall points
2nd: Cloudopolis 45 overall points
1st: Ponydale 50 overall points

These points are calculated from the medals earned for 1, 2, 3, and 4 place with 1st being worth 4, 2nd being worth 3, 3rd being worth 2, and 4th being worth 1.  Points were calculated for teams and not individuals as there were some events where one team technically won multiple places.

Everypony who participated is a winner and I sincerely hope that we will continue to have all of you in our lives as the months go by and more exciting events happen in LoE! :D

Just an update on upcoming events and birthdays.

Friday March 1st is Jet Black's birthday and there will be a party in SCC.  This may be held fairly late but be sure to hang around SCC as there will likely be festivities all evening.

Other upcoming birthdays are:

March 5th: Cheshire Cat
March 6th: Scoots

Please come out and say happy birthday to these ponies if you see them

On Saturday, March 2 starting at 9PM GMT, meet at the Cantermore Unicorn School grounds and bring a costume to celebrate CARNIVAL (US Mardi Gras).  We'll be celebrating with a parade through Cantermore and a dance party at the Gala Hall.  Prizes will be given for best costume!

This isn't a PONI sanctioned event but this will be occurring very soon. 

Your Princesses need you to join up (because they've fired all of their other guards).  Please come to the Cantermore training area (near the Castle) this Sunday, March 24 at 8PM GMT to participate in a series of contests sponsored by the Royals.  The winner(s) will be made honorary members of the Royal Guard and will be given the glorious duty of serving their royal princesses.

IMPORTANT: All participants must bring a suit of bronze armor.  The Royals don't have the budget to buy your training armor (more important things must be paid for, like cakes).

This promises to be fun and we hope to see you there! :D

EDIT: Updated the start time


On April 24th, 2011 Iamnotacleverpony posted a song to Youtube that would mark the start of the New Lunar Republic (and ultimately Solar Empire) fandom.


To commemorate the 8 year anniversary of it, the NLR is planning a special event for LoE on April 24th. It will mostly be photoshoots finished by an airshow and party.
Start time is 7PM GMT (2PM central US)

Everyone who takes part will start out at the Castle of the Royal Sisters in Evershade for a photoshoot (note: it is very difficult to get to the spot now so leave early so you have time to try negotiating the jungle gym. If you can't do it just wait on the bridge where you respawn after falling into the ravine).
 
Then the group will head to the Ponydale square and "take it over" with another photoshoot.
 From there the army moves on to Midway in the Heartlands for the next photoshoot (though the Midway part may be skipped if there's a time constraint. If so everyone will head to Cantermore after Ponydale).
Finally the army will march through Cantermore and storm the castle, taking it over.
After that, the Wind Howlers (Team Cloudsdale) will put on an airshow around 9PM GMT.
Finally everyone returns to Ponydale and SCC for an after party.

The dress code is as follows:
Full moonlight armor set (or parts of it and nickel armor if you don't have a full set)

If you don't have/can't wear the moon armor:

option 2
lab coat (color 4c4d62)
argyle socks (color 1- 868595 , color 2- 4C4D62 )

option 3
iridescent armor (color 4c4d62)

Shadowbolt (pegasus only)
Lab coat color- 63306b
Argyle socks color - 1 efeb41, color 2 - 313039
 goggles
 green lantern

Can also equip the Aviator's lantern or a green colored torch
Bat ponies welcome too.  And we are expecting "resistance" :P   .  FOR LUNA! :luna:

Okay everypony, after a long moment, here's it is, the official forum announcement.  I know most of you probably already know about this but let's lay down some of the details.  Because this is probably the most important event that happens on Legends of Equestria.  It started all the major event planning and was the birth of PONI.  I am talking of course about:

THE GRAND GALLOPING GALA



This year's Gala season is already underway and ponies have been working hard getting their outfits ready, dresses ordered, training their dance moves, and helping to prepare the feast.  There are two major events associated with this year's Gala and the first is coming up soon.

(https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/570235424874954782/571403155728891944/RoyalGalaDinner.png?width=841&height=474)

The Royal Pre-Gala Dinner will be held this upcoming Saturday at 9PM GMT at the Cantermore Gala Hall and will be a fancy dinner party where ponies will come dressed in their finest, sit down and be served a delicious dinner, and enter to win a Gala Prize Pack.  To enter the sweepstakes please contact a pony named Winter Roll either in LoE or on Discord.  They're pretty easy to find, just look for an amazing, party loving foal.

The next week we move on the Mane Event:

(https://media.discordapp.net/attachments/551839784780169216/572110086072172544/Gala2019.png?width=841&height=474)

We know that you've been dreaming, you've been waiting.  So here it is.  May 25th starting at 8PM GMT the Grand Galloping Gala will begin at the Cantermore Gala Hall.  At 9PM GMT there will be an amazing aerial performance by the Wind Riders.  Following this please enjoy the dancing, food, and of course friendship that comes with this amazing and monumental event!

In the spirit of the Grand Galloping Gala we would like encourage food and other vending at the event, if you would like to have a stall and sell some type of homemade items to earn a lot of money to fix Granny's sagging hip (or whatever else you need) then please let a member of PONI know. 

We will also be working to try and bring some of the more famous members of the MLP community to this event though don't be disappointed if they don't make it.  We're not talking the Voice Actresses or Lauren Faust or anything, but maybe some of the Youtube horsefamous ponies who have been seen in LoE before.

On behalf of PONI we hope to see you at the Gala and are super excited for everything that is to come! :D
