Featuring: (names & links of characters present)
Location: (name of stable/show/place they are at)

Plot Request Journals
After having a character accepted, most people go straight to making an RP request journal. All types of phae may submit Plot Request journals to the group, so don’t be shy if you want to get out there and interact with your fellow members!
When submitting your plot request journal, include the following in the deviation:
- Character name and link to their accepted profile
- Kingdom/OC World/Stable where the plot will take place
- What types of characters you are looking for
- What the plot is about
- Or, include multiple if you’re looking for many RPs!
Title the submission with your plot headline, eg:
“Lolly looking for sparring partners in OC world” or “ABC Pegasus looking for a show friend in HARPG”
You can be as detailed or nondescript as you want when describing your plot, but it is recommended that you let your fellow RP seekers know at least a little bit of what you’re up to! This helps draw people to your journal and ideas (:
For more information on roleplaying and general etiquette, check out the About roleplaying journal.
Breeding Request Journals
If you are looking for a place to request a breeding, this is the place to submit those!
What to submit:
- Rut journals for RoE does or stags
- Available breedings in your HARPG stable or OC world
- Request for parents for a specific breeding
- I.e. a Lord and Princess for a Princess fawn
- Requests looking for another parent
- I.e. a doe for a stag
And more! If it has to do with breeding, the “Breeding Request Journals” is your best bet!
Remember to be polite and don’t harass members to give you a breeding you want. If the character is available, they will let you know (:
