Hello everyone! This is an rp I wanted to make regarding MLP, and the fan conflict of the Equestrian Civil War, or simply, the New Lunar Republic vs the Solar Empire. If you have not heard of it, go to this link for a Lunar standpoint: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=AqPmCq9zNvI
For a Solar standpoint, go to this link: https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=vjDhyJjEVXA
So basically, the war is fought between the regime of Princess Celestia, and the new rebellion inspired by Princess Luna. It begins when after a long, grueling war in the Everfree Forest against the Changelings (I have a project about it on this studio titled: The Everfree War), some ponies begin to believe that Celestia is a tyrant, and blame her for the effects of the conflict: the loss of loved ones, famine, and dip in economy. These same ponies also believe that Luna should be the new ruler. Without letting Celestia know, the Commander of the Royal Guard orders that Luna be arrested for crimes of treason and put to trial, and sends a taskforce to subdue her and bring her to court. But, some staff members in the castle find out, and warn Luna before the taskforce arrives. Their positions compromised, they leave with Luna, and go to the only place that is safe for the Princess of The Night: the New Lunar Republic. The betrayal of the Canterlot Royal Guard causes Luna to believe that her older sister's kingdom is wrong in the way it is ruled, and becomes the leader of the insurgents that idolize her.
Now, the great Equestrian Civil War Begins...
There are other factions in the MLP universe that may be affected by the civil war, such as the Crystal Empire, led by Princess Cadence, and even the Changeling Hive, led by Chrysalis. There is also, a Peace Corps, for characters who oppose the war, and think that both princesses should continue to rule side by side. (Btw, they don't fight. The PEACE CORPS shouldn't fight and have weapons, since they want to achieve PEACE.) Another faction is the N.Q.A, or New Queen Association. This is an army, led by Crystal Tide, that wishes to destroy both princesses: Celestia and Luna, and restore order to Equestria, with Crystal Tide ruling as the New Queen of Equestria.
You may create or add OCs to this. You may also be characters from the show. Just remember, when you enter the information on your character, you must include a bio (unless they are not an OC), what type of pony they are (Earth Pony, Pegasus, Unicorn, please no more OC Mary Sue alicorns!) And which side they are joining, and why. You may submit your character in the comments, or in a project. (Use the template project added, remix, rename, and submit). With that said, here are the factions, and character options.
Also, please note that if you choose an important cannon character, such as a faction leader, and you don't participate in the rp, YOU WILL BE REPLACED FROM YOUR CANNON CHARACTER.

If you choose characters that are already in the series, please keep them in character. You may also not kill a character, unless the person who plays the character allows you to. You may have more than one character, but keep it a maximum five characters. No cursing, and no descriptions of gore. Slight romance is fine, but nothing intense. Also remember, the New Lunar Republic and the Solar Empire must be at war! This is what the rp is about. Eventually, the Peace Corps might bring the princesses to their senses, but that probably wouldn't occur until later in the story.
Thank you for reading, and I will give more updates later. Enjoy!
