Started in July 2012, Go Through the Alphabet Before Someone Posts a My Little Pony Picture quickly became a popular hangout for both Bronies and Non-bronies alike.The point of the game is simple, to the point of being Exactly What It Says on the Tin. The players have to try and reach Z. They have to reset and start at A whenever someone posts a My Little Pony picture. Over time the regulars have put a number of unofficial rules in place to keep the game from becoming too easy or devolving into a spamfest.Shortly afterwards some of the regulars started using the thread for their ongoing Roleplay. It's unknown exactly when the RP started, but legend says that it used to run over several other threads before coming to it's current home. It's first appearance in this thread can found over hereIt was the most replied active topic in the Minecraft Forums Forum Games section and the second most viewed.Due to one of the member's posting habits the Minecraft Forum thread has been locked. It can still be viewed but no one can post on it. However, the Thread has been moved to a new forum. TheTrueMultiverse is the new home for the main thread as well as the accompanying roleplay.There is also an IRC channel but it has unfortunately gone unused. #MLPAlphabetRP

The RP has gone through a number of different story arcs, as well as a number of smaller side arcs. The story arcs usually involve a large goal or enemy the main characters band together to accomplish or defeat. The side arcs usually involve NPC characters interacting with each other. Below can be found a list of recent arcs in the order of occurrence.
The Fourth Wall Arc
The fourth wall shattered causing the universe to become so broken that players from the RP entered our world and started narrating alongside the authors.
The Duck Clones Arc
To get rid of Duck, seven different clones had to be taken care of first, all in separate Duckverses. This arc ended without Duck being destroyed, unfortunately.
The Fanfic Arc
After burning a number of fanfics a new universe, based on all fanfics, came into existence. Of course we had to go destroy the characters from the worst ones.
The Urgash Arc (In Progress?note It may or may not be finished.)
Urgash, a terrifying demon of pure chaos, attacks Equestria and the players have to band together with the help of the mane six to defeat him.
The Spike Side-arcnote Stars Spike, Velvet Remedy and BlastH!Pinkamena.
This arc occurs in parallel with the Urgash Arc. After being attacked by Cheerilee and Fluttershy, Velvet Remedy and Pinkamena seek shelter in Twilight's Castle with some assistance from Spike.
The JESUS CHRIST WHAT THE HELL IS HAPPENING Mini-arc
Following the defeat of Urgash, the RP switched to a small "joke" where the writers threw the rule book out the window and conducted the worst RP they could imagine.
Nightmare Rarity Arc
One of the writers felt it fitting to summon Rarity for snuggles. However Rarity turned out to be an Axtra-dimensional Magical Vampire with powers similar to Nightmare Moon (Hence the name of this arc) and the ritual for summoning her invariable ends in her consuming the one she snuggles with and leaving to take over all of Equestria. During this arc the writers are attempting to stop her.
The Pink Cloud/Xzen Arc
This arc begins with Blast barely escaping a Pink Cloud bomb he detonated in the Suggestive-verse, thanks to Andire. However, the cloud unexpectedly melts its way Andire's vault with the two barely escaping in time. Meanwhile, Xzen appears and randomly attack.
Mysterious Space Battleship Side-Arcnote This Arc is currently in a form of Development Hell in that Duck told Creeper not to continue the arc until later on. However this was nearly an entire week ago.
Taking place after the Urgash Arc, the arc starts out with David (One of Duck's Characters) getting into an argument with Regon and Foster, wherein Foster vowed that he would shoot David in the crotch with a rocket launcher and then collect the spinal cords of all David's allies to make a noose for hanging David. Foster begins looking across the multiverse for the Lance Empire, which David was a member of, with no luck. That is until Blast points out a space battleship that Foster somehow missed despite searching nearly everywhere. Foster sets his multiversal travel machine to land him in or on it, and went in. However, he found no trace of a crew, and the security systems were de-activated. A person from the Lance Empire shows up and informs Foster that the ship has an AI yet seemingly has no security systems among other systems, as if it had left the factory before being complete. He also informed Foster that the ship hasn't been produced for 1000+ years. He continued searching on until the lights all went out, afterwards he searched for a while before giving up, stating he'd go back to it later.
Note: These lists are incomplete and some information may be missing or incorrect.
And let's not forget the way he dealt with Bowrang.
Hyper Blast: "So, how's it feel. After all you've done, how does it feel to finally lose?"
Foster is usually a fairly friendly guy, one time even trying to talk an enemy out of attacking the group as well as the rest of Equestria. He also tends to violently attack Treeco (Mainly because Treeco can not actually die and so is a good anger outlet for him.), slaughtered an entire Equestria filled with black and red alicorn oc's Ponyville and Canterlot leaving no survivors, slaughtered a large percentage of 4Chan, killed his way out of a bandit arena in his own universe leaving the survivors afraid and to die to the incredibly dangerous and carnivorous wildlife, and he's also hung out with Khorne whom he personally collects skulls for sometimes.
BFS: Andire's Aerosteel Omniblade can technically be one if he changes it to be as such.
Foster's dragon tail Tachi technically counts as one, lengthwise only though.
Because Blast's sword forms out of chaos energy, it can technically be any size.
Mantacruise: I once saw something that had 2 mouths, 1 throat, 3 stomachs and 4 heads.
Foster's universe has a type of parasitic worm creature that creates this by burrowing into the brain of it's victim. It's family then moves into the host's stomach.
Applespider. That is all.
Breaking the Fourth Wall: Done very often. In fact, one of the major plot points in the RP was that at one point the fourth wall was broken to the point that rifts were opening up in every universe to a much greater extent than normal and characters were co-narrating alongside the authors. Of course this led to crazy things happening, and also the introduction of many recurring characters in the RP.
Brought Down to Normal: Averted. It seems to be the case for Blast at first, when he is body swapped with Seiko, but he quickly points out that his chaos powers can be used by anyone if they have access to the energy and knows how to use them.
Evil Counterpart: Inverted. Paul the Creeper is a non-hostile creeper who came into Foster's universe through one of the Fourth Wall Arc's multiple universal rifts. He somehow understood Foster and decided to stay in his universe. He's now his Monster Roommate of sorts.
Living Macguffin: Mantacruise!Pinkamena is temporarily turned into one by the Crazy Wizard. Blast turns her back to normal.
Magitek: Adrican technology sometimes comes into this territory, and as such so does the Empire of Humanity's technology as it was based upon Adrican technology.
Andire upgraded Foster's rifle and shotgun, giving them both the feature of using the spent casings and shells to make mana which coats the next shots, effectively making them guns that can do some form of damage against the crazy enemies that the group tend to fight.
Mutants: In Foster's universe, radioactivity causes mutations among animals. Humans however, don't react well when mixed with radiation. Animals tend to stay normal looking but become over-sized and tend to gain strange additions to them. Such as birds gaining a tail that allows them to stab creatures easily, spiders getting extreme amounts of strength, and so on.
No Fourth Wall: It's a forum roleplay, what did you expect? In fact at one point the fourth wall was broken to such an extent that dimensional rifts were caused and things started leaking out into the real world.
Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: Foster (And the poster controlling him.) quit doing anything that involved the rest of the characters because he deemed them to get into too stupid of situations.
Foster: "Screw this, I don't even care what's going on anymore. You people get into the craziest predicaments I swear. *Starts walking off to the kitchen* Maybe there's some doritos in here somewhere."
