The HArpg DictionaryI was talking to a few people in HArpg and many of them agree that there are a ton of abbreviations and words they are unfamiliar with when they begin playing. Heck, even some long-time players are sometimes lost in the slang of the group! So, here is a dictionary to be used by beginners and veteran players. If you see I've missed something, please let me know so I can add it it! And this isn't solely for HArpg, this can be used for EArpg, TrueHooves, and similar games.The HArpg Dictionary3 years ago in Personal More Like This

THIS HORSE IS NOT A DAPPLE GREY.

nPrl CrCr or PrlPrl nCr or PrlPrl CrCr CANNOT EXIST.
Pearl and Cream occupy the same locus, so a horse that has both genes present can only ever be nPrl nCr.
RnRn ToTo CANNOT EXIST.
Pretty much the same reason as above. This is also true of Sabino and Dominant White (though hopefully there aren't any WW horses out there because they probably should be... not born?)

This randomizer was made by Hathien603, BaliroAdmin, and BVicius.
The original idea was to create this for the Horse Art RP Game on Deviantart - but it is free to use by others as well and for other purposes.
We do kindly ask for credit though.
Please link back to these journal's where possible, so others may find it as well.
Recently my husband frog357 took some free time and surprised me by announcing he had turned this into an automatically randomized generator. Please visit this link to view the automatic randomizer: http://arienequine.com/design/index.php?q=content/welcome-horse-personality-randomizer

How to Host a Successful ShowThere is no rule book for hosting shows. This is just a smattering of tips and things to think about that I've compiled over the years that could help the next show you host be a success.How to Host a Successful Show1 year ago in Personal More Like This
What is your show about?
First you have to decide what horses and disciplines you want to be featured in this show. Check and make sure there aren't a bunch of shows already being hosted in these areas, as people may not have time to enter both and will probably go with the one they saw first. The more specific your show is, the more unique it will be, but be sure it is not so specific that no one is qualified to enter. Common ones may be:
Experience related ("Championship Show", "Rookie Show")Breed or Type Related ("Arabian Show", "Halloween-Colored Horses Show", "Pony Show")
Discipline related ("Gaited Show", "Medieval Show")
Many really interesting shows ha
