You are sitting in your room, looking at your gorgeous horses at Deviantart. You don't have a particular storyline in mind but you really like to draw something. You have no idea what to do. Sounds familiar? Well, here I have something that might get you some ideas. :dummy:

It's a rough set up, and some combinations wouldn't make sense at all, but... maybe it bring you a good story? :XD: If you like to help to improve this, please, feel free to comment!

How does it work?


If you are familiar with the horse personality randomizer that Dane made together with some other DA'ers, then it's kinda in the same direction. You will see a couple of lists that together will make a guideline to draw something. Some combination absolutely do not make sense, but just click the random button again to make a better option. :)

What do I need?


Go to Random.org to get the random numbers to make a combination. Write it down or use a textdocument.

The "What to draw next?" HARPG Help Guide


Wich Horse?
Input the number of horses you got in your stable and the number you got (for example) 5, means the 5th horse you have in your stable. You can also leave out the horses you already drew lately.

Wich human?
Input the number of human charries you got in your stable and the number you got (for example) 1, means the 1st human charrie you have in your stable. You can also leave out the humans you already drew lately. Or don't draw a human at all, depending on the results.

This is amazing, would it be okay if I switched some stuff around and also made it DARPg friendly? I'm not going to repost it or anything, just use the same guide with dogs.

I have plenty of story plots and refs to do, but I thought I'd give kudos to this anyways. Although it wouldn't work for me as my stable has no human characters.

Kalesta Featured By Owner Dec 28, 2013
A stable without humans? Ah, maybe you can then just leave out the actions and things wich involves humans and replace them with other things. :) Anyways, thanks for your comment! :la:

:P Yep, no humans. Trinity is an anthro white Bengal tiger, Sherja is an anthro Black Rhino, Lynka is an anthro Corriedale sheep, Jackqueline who's coming soon, is an anthro Jackal, Myrianna is 1/2 werewolf and 1/2 vampire, and the Kinnz brothers are immortal otherworldly-ish druids from the beginning of Druidism, so not exactly human. If I started any more stories, nothing would get done lol But in any case, it's very helpful for those who are completely lost...or out of their minds rofl

Hehe, yeah, it was directed to the peeps with a regular stable with staff and such. :) Sounds like a pretty cool bunch of anthro's! :D
