Chapter XIII: A Terrible Storm Gathers

Maeda
Princessland has, if nothing else, plenty of buildings. Perhaps some description is in order. The larder is hosted out of the great dining hall, which could easily host 1,000 guests at once. The diningware is polished stone, and modest drapes add some color to the grey tones of the stone walls in this chamber. Long wooden tables in the light tones of banana palm seem more ornamental than sturdy, but the long, stalwart yew benches at their feet are terraced with steel rings on which to hook chains.

To find your way around Princessland, it is ironically probably not best to turn to the Office of Holy Information, which in this case is information in a more general sense, and rather consult the local priesthood. You might try the secretaries at the Office of the Abbot, or for a less formal session, consult the groundskeeper at his house apart.

Lilly
Grey told you that chasing graves seems crazy. Now that breakfast is settled, you have nothing but the road ahead of you… do you want to ask anyone to come with you besides Sitar?

Maybe the other mercenaries, like George or Emrille, or even Lacy might come. On the other hand, they might have their own business.

Emrille
Another day, another posh suite. If nothing else, the Belle family is well off. Lilly may want help - or perhaps you could follow up on that lead with Bran. Apparently Selena and her daughters got in last night. Or maybe George has interesting stuff going on. Plenty to investigate.

You could take the ladder down, open it, and take the ladder up. But your method works too – you raise the water all the way to level with the second tier (base of the ship) and dive underwater to open the sea brace.

The water, which is now level with the sea, equalizes in pressure and the doors gently swing open.

You have been gathered together for one reason. The royal army has hired you for a black operations mission to rid a gang of Minotaurs. They have been capturing all sorts of rare species from across the seas, only now have they settled down to train and weaponize these beasts… possibly to sell it to a warmonger.

As long as you keep quiet about your mercenary work for the Royal Army and kill the captain leading these pirates. Other than these conditions, you may work how you proceed.

Which of you have been chosen for this job?

You see one of the four suddenly leaps from the startling sound you create, accidentally tripping and knocking over the guard in front, causing a domino effect on the rest.

After working as a Weather Patrol pony for the Cloudsdale Weather Factory, you got both good and bad news - while you got accepted to the Wonderbolts, your father, who relies on you taking up the director position of the Factory, fell sick.

Time is running out before you have to leave to the Wonderbolts boot camp.

"Any aid you can provide is most appreciated," he replies to Rosa.

He thinks for a moment before answering her question. "We are doing so as part of a great task we have been given by the different tribal leaders of this land. By felling the colossi, we gain their trust and can claim their sacred tokens. By uniting them, the Emon believes the deep fog plaguing this place can be lifted, and this land freed of its terrible curse. A great onus, to be sure, but it is something that must be done."

As you all walk and talk to distract yourselves from the heat, you feel a sense of rising dread as you let the thoughts of the previous fight sit at the back of your heads.

Widowmaker however has yet to see the power of these beasts or even the close calls some of you have had. Even the shocking realization of Astra's once so called "all mighty ancient." falling to their power. Perhaps… He too will see soon enough.

Time passes, paws and hooves begin to grow sore. In the distance you all now see a large crystal jutting out of the ground… however there are no shadow beasts to defend it much like before.

To Succinite, this looks like a pretty cool yet strange landmark out in the middle of nowhere.

It might work on the weak underlings, but definitely not on this 'boss' imp, as your notes would say.

You're not very well versed on them, but your notes seem to suggest that they can only be tethered to the realm of Equestria either by a summoner or some sort of demon-gate.
Capturing one is next to impossible unless you are well versed in demonic magic.

There is no response to your knocks.

"What you mean no?
That's your fockin' job!"

The warm light of tallow candles bathes over the scene.
Three Earthies, townsfolks, now circling around one much taller gray maned unicorn in what you and everypony here can at a glance tell to be very expensive armor.
They are having a shouting match before the counter of this shallow-roofed inn, cramped walls pressing them close against each other. None of them seems happy in the least.

"I said no. The coin is not right. You can find someone else for the job. Now get out of my way."

With naught but his walk, the unicorn shoves one of the peasants aside, making him fall on his ass, as he leaves the door. Mean gazes from the crowd follow him cut the corner onto the broken down, muddy road cutting through this two-houses village like a snake, as a chill evening wind hisses through the door.

But even peasants are not fools, and sacking the insult, the three sit back at their table. Just like that, silence comes back to the inn.


You on the other hand, are stuck. Almost out of money, with a letter burning inside your pocket. A letter which just has to make it to the capital.

>"and what if it's just some crminals and heretics?"
"A rifle like this one would help you engage at a range without endangering yourself, although you may want a sidearm for close engagements."

"But how can anypony carry such a spear gun, aren't those really big and heavy?"

"They come in more than one size. Miniaturization is always a popular sport."

Emrille & Lilly
Emrille: "On her way I guess?"
Lilly: "Let's hope she didn't get lost. I'd like to see her before I take off to Hamburgerburg."
