MU-Brony-Club

Spent my night making these for the club. I think they came out rather nicely!

Have to thank MLP-VectorClub on DeviantArt for their amazing supply of vectors.
Unfortunately I wasn’t able to successfully import any SVGs into my vector app, but I think the PNGs are high enough res. to still pull off that ‘clean vector look.’

(the last one really makes me laugh)

Got an odd one for you all here! This is a panoramic video taken at our Tumblr OC blog meeting today.

It was really cool. It’s an iPhone app that when activated and when you balance the phone standing up, it vibrates to spin the phone around. Seriously. It vibrates the phone to turn it and take a panoramic picture.

Just…wow. Anyways yeah! We didn’t get a room reserved, so we went down in to the ground floor of the student centre and set up shop in the big lounge area.

Getting things rolling!

Hello dear followers! It is about time that you were following a blog with actual posts.

So here we go! What’s first for this blog? Well, a series of Welcome Posts!
Each featured author has drawn up their own OC, as well as a relatively brief welcome message.

These posts will be queued to stretch over the length of the remaining week, leading up to our next meeting on Sunday (Feb. 16th).
(OCs will be listed in no particular order–they will be randomly selected)

What now?

We implore our followers to begin sending asks into the blog! We already have a reference page set up, and will soon have “welcome posts.” If you can think of any question, for individuals or groups of characters, we’d love to give it a shot.

We’ve also updated the general information page with a “how does this work” info blurb, since that seems…relevant. More will be added as the holes in my plan start to show themselves.

Final thoughts:

  • Banner and Avatar pic are in progress
  • Welcome posts will link back to this post
  • Have any thoughts, comments, advice? Please direct them to mod Regal

Thank you for your support! We’re really looking forward to this project, and can’t wait to see it get underway in earnest!

-Mod Regal

On a dark night filled with even darker magics, an insane cult attempts to give Nightmare Moon a body and life of her own, utterly separate from Princess Luna. But, when the spell is interrupted by Celestia, something unexpected is created.

Now, a little black alicorn filly named Nyx finds herself living under the care of Twilight Sparkle, only to be haunted by memories and emotions from her past. Is she Nightmare Moon reborn or is she simply a doppelganger with a soul and mind of her own? Can Twilight Sparkle protect Nyx from those who refuse to see past her dragon eyes and black coat?

Or, will Nyx be forced to inherit the sins that may not even be hers and become the greatest evil Equestria has ever known?

Today the MU Brony club participated in the Mizzou Involvement Fair held in the Student Center!

Only 40 clubs were able to attend, and we were fast enough to secure our spot.
——————–
The purpose of the fair was simply to expose students to some of the clubs on campus via a, well, involvement fair.

Most of the other clubs set up Tri-Folds, poster boards, and usually spread some candy atop their table.
But was that good enough for the MU Brony Club? Heck no!

With framed posters, plushies, a picture slideshow, custom banner, and just about every comic book issue, we really hit the ground running.

And to top it all off: we even had a running Fighting is Magic set up on our Tech Officer’s laptop with an xbox controller.
Truly, that pulled everything together.

Best of all? Multiple times people from ORG (the host of the fair) came by to congratulate us on our stunning display, saying that we were top runners for the ‘best display’ contest, to which the prize is a free pizza party.

We did not know there was a contest.
But we may have won it anyways.
—————-
Most importantly, we found a lot of interest in the club. We were able to talk to a great number of wonderful individuals, many of whom seemed interested in our club!

And we have all of our wonderful members (and friends!) to thank for making it such an amazing, attractive club! It was very easy to sell the merits, because everyone has made it so worth joining. Well done guys.

We did it.

We're back baby!

Just like Trixie, we reappear all of the sudden with no warning, but with undeniable grace and awesomeness.
——————
Wow, no posts since September…And still quite a few followers! Thank you all for your faith, it will not go unrewarded!

First of all, we’d just like to mention that finally, the mods know how to tumblr!
What does this mean? Well with a good few months of personal tumblr tomfoolery, we finally have a better idea of what to do with this and how to use it…

HOORAY!!

So what will this blog be doing?
This week? Not much since the club is only starting up again this Friday.

But after this week?? So much! SO MUCH. Including the announcement of our official Club-OC ask-blog! It’s an idea that I, mod-Regal, have been thinking about, and while I have yet to pitch it to the club as a whole, my fellow officers support it.
Once it actually happens, keep an ear out here for updates and news! Because it’s going to be cool. I wish. I hope. I pray. (forced Snowdrop reference)

And we’ll be keeping better tabs on the club’s goings-ons too. So watch for that as well!

That’s it for now. Thank you for your patience and your loyalty! Stay tuned for ponies.

Successful First Meeting!

Thanks to all who came out! We seemed to have just enough pizza for the group, and that’s fantastic.

Met a ton of new people, set some good new goals for the group, and other things!

In particular, we're very excited about the approval I received from the club about the Club OC Ask Blog idea we came up with!

We’ll get that going soon, and who knows? We just may be the *next big thing* here on tumblr!

————————-

Last news: FanFic meeting on Monday! Be sure to check the website for details; we’ll have a post out this weekend.

Until then, enjoy the new ponies episode tomorrow everyone!

MLP Roleplaying is Magic: preliminary character-creation meeting.


With the guidance of DM Jake Watkins, today marked the first official meeting of the MU Brony Club “Roleplaying is Magic” (RiM) group! Guided by the official fan-made rules (season 3 edition) to this Dungeons & Dragons adaptation, the group today was captivated by the genesis of an exciting adventure in ponies, friendship, and OCs.

What adventures await these intrepid ponies, zebras, and griffons? Only time will tell!

anonymous asked:

There's a reasonable chance my girlfriend might end up coming to MU! I work from home so I'll be picking up and moving with her. I'm very excited but I'm also super nervous finding a way to make new friends since I won't be going to classes or a job. You guys seem wonderful though. Would I be able to come to meetings as a non-student? Thanks! <3

That sounds fantastic! We wish the best of luck to you and your girlfriend during this move!

—–

To answer your question, yes of course you may come to meetings as a non-student! We have a good slew of non-students in the club already.

So yes! If you make it up to MU, please come to any meetings you wish. We look forward to meeting you!

Things! They're happening!

Greetings friends. Things are happening this weekend!

Right now we are meeting in the Student Centre for a MLP:CCG tournament!
Very exciting. Really. It’s going to be great and all y'all should go.

This weekend:

Tomorrow (Saturday): RiM meeting! We’re starting up our beloved Roleplaying is Magic activity this Saturday. See the website post for details.

Sunday: Tumblrpon OC Meeting! Oh YES. This will be the second meeting of this very new activity. On Sunday we’ll finally announce the blog, as we really get started. It’s gonna be great!

Things are getting real up in herr.

Caves, Dragons, and Stubborn Doorstops

Today’s Roleplaying is Magic session was, as always, interesting!

But I think the true shining star of weirdness today was the unusual room we had this week…No pictures unfortunately, but imagine a small windowless room in the dead centre of Memorial Union Student Centre.

Now imagine the one door to said room having its floor-deadlock jammed into the carpet with three people on either side trying to unsuccessfully force the door open.

Yep.
