It should hinder you in ways that are invisible to "straight" player. We'll call it a commentary on privilege, and get mad praise for our progressive depth.

The party returns to Celestia. Battered and burnt, but victorious.
They present the sun princess and her advisers evidence of the cult and their work within the inner workings of Canterlot.
You also hand over the Binding Seal spell, asking that copied of it be made just to be sure.

Celestia looks over the evidence and seems to become very serious. She opens a door nearby and says you may take anything you wish from the royal guard armory.
She then summons a healer by the name of Aenoi to tend to your wounded.
Once you are ready, speak with her again. She has news to tell.
>> Trusty [Tracker] 05/12/12(Sat)18:25 No.1892174

I already have a Celestial Hammer from last time.
Is there any Heavy Plate Armor with pretty sun motifs there?

I also tell Dawn to try and not to get killed next time, because she had me worried for a while.

You grab a masterwork Crossbow. Being fancy and all, it also works with arrows as well as bolts. You also grab some Lightning Bolts.
No trap supplies though.
You find the Staff of Rituals, an old ceremonial staff made from bone. Luna liked it a lot back in the day, but Celestia never cared for the thing, finding it spooky.
The sword that once saved equestria is stored in the armoury. Still as sharp as ever, the runes on it's surface pulse softly. It is the bane of magic and slayer of witches.
You take one of the rapiers sometimes used by officers in duels and parades. Soldiers are not trained to use them, but in skilled hooves even a ceremonial weapon can be lethal
You see a set of gilded full plate emblazoned with the marks of Celestia. You rush back to the princess to ask about it. She says it's some old set she was supposed to use at certain festivals, but it was irksomely small for her so she only used it once. You can have it.
Aenoi, being appointed to this task by the queen, is granted a blessed shield and a helmet of his liking.

Celestia then motions you to meet her in a side room
>> Dawn [Rogue] 05/12/12(Sat)18:40 No.1892451

Celestia waits in the other room. Her aside there is also a young female dragon. She introduces herself as Noise.
Her tribe, on the run from Old Ironhide, had a run in with the Griffon Kingdom of the north, and lost five of their original 20 members before coming to an agreement and being allowed to roost in an empty town.
She herself came to Canterlot to offer her services as a translator and ambassador between dragons and ponies. She has knowledge of Ironhide and wishes to do all she can to help defeat him once and for all.
Celestia has accepted her offer, having met Ironhide in person in the past, she knows they will need all the allies they can get.
Noise says there is a large dragon tribe nearby they could try to ally with, or now that she is in Canterlot, you could join her in finding some proper answers to the true nature of Ironhide.
She also offers to tell you the story of Ironhide as she knows it, if you care to listen.

>this is copypaste from the other one. If you already read it, you can skip it. I won't hide anything important in there.
Old Ironhide made a name for himself four hundred years ago during those dragon migrations. He was massive even compared to other dragons, and had great iron plates hammered to his skin and scales. Most dragons suspected he had paid some other race to build them onto him, but there was no proof. What fueled Ironhide's rage was a mystery, but he blindly attacked any dragon that got in his way, openly destroying any eggs he could find. The iron plates and countless fights had left him so disfigured that none could be sure what he once looked like. Perhaps he was a dragon someone once knew. Perhaps he was a loner or an outsider. Whatever his past was, it had to be traumatic. What else would drive a dragon to so blindly slay his own kind? His fury scattered the tribes, forcing them outwards from their traditional roosting grounds in search of safety. Matings failed and eggs were lost, causing a severe dip in dragon population. There were also many clashes between dragons and other races, as the dragons sought roosts, just like now.

>> DM 05/12/12(Sat)18:56 No.1892779
All seemed lost until Celestia the princess of Equestria stepped forth to stop the madness before her capital of Canterlot would come under attack.
Gathering countless unicorns, some of them famous and notable, as well as shamans and warriors, she made a pact with the dragons. Learning the deepest secrets and weaknesses of a dragon first hand, she guided her unicorns in creating a spell that could weaken the mighty Ironhide.
The other dragon clans united to face Ironhide in battle, and through many died that day, the combined armies of dragons and ponies managed to bring down Ironhide.
However, he was too strong to finish off that day, with every army in rags, the unicorns instead sealed him in a mighty stone prison, sealing him there forever with shrines that sustained their weakening spell. Now the shrines have been broken and Ironhide has returned, still consumed with rage against the dragons, and now with a similar hatred of ponies, especially the unicorns and Celestia.
At least, that is the story as it was told to her.

She asks if you'd rather go to the archives for research, or meet the dragons as is?
>> Trusty [Tracker] 05/12/12(Sat)18:56 No.1892787
On the other hand, my character can

After some bickering Radiant takes up command and says they will try the archives.
The rest of the party begrudgingly agree as Noise voices her support for the plan.
Noise asks what the party had already researched. Perhaps she could point them to a more useful direction, being a dragon herself.
She also tries to calm everyone down, saying this will only take a moment. She has a hunch and wants to see if there is any root to it.

Noise listens to you and ponders for a while.
She then quickly dashes into the history wing and scours the shelves for info about the first arrival of Ironhide.
She asks you to help her find a record of knights serving in the royal guard at the time.
There is a story among dragons, a fairly old one that most just consider a story among a million others. It tells of a pony knight who once was seen as a notable threat by dragons. Though small and unremarkable, his faith in his duty brought him great strength. He wandered the lands near Canterlot, attacking any dragons he found. He even killed a few younger ones.
She wants to know if this knight was real, for if the stories are to be believed he lived not long before Ironhide appeared.

After some messing around you do indeed find a record of knights who served four hundred years ago. As you go through the list, Celestia walks into the room
Celestia is sort of creeped out by your drooling, and pulls her hoof away.
She then proceeds to talk.
That story indeed is fact, and she knew that knight. His name was Valiance and he was something of a rogue element. As a guard, it was his duty to protect Canterlot. However he always prioritized the greatest threats as the ones most demanding of attention. While this was a good mindset, it lead to him hunting dragons for over ten years, believing they were by far the greatest potential threat to the castle.
His methods were often overblown and unpredictable, endangering his fellow guards and civilians for what he called the greater good end. Eventually Celestia had to eject him from the guard. This did not stop him, however, and he continued his crusade in private, swearing to protect his princess.
Eventually he disappeared, and was assumed dead around six months before the appearance of Ironhide. He was last seen heading into the mountains. She is not sure what he was looking for there, since nobody really visits that place often.
>> Trusty [Tracker] 05/12/12(Sat)19:27 No.1893369

You agree to meet the dragon clan before investigating the mountains.
Celestia wishes you luck and sends you off. She then resumes her duties overseeing the reinforcing of Canterlot Castle.

As you head out to meet the dragons, Noise asks if there is something you'd like to know about dragons, her or something else to pass the time.
>> Aenoi [Cleric] 05/12/12(Sat)19:35 No.1893553
I have my suspicions about Iron Hide and Valiance, but if anything we should start making our way to the dragon camp

Does Celestia want an alliance with them? were there any problems with dragons making a camp in equestrian lands?
>> Max [Knight] 05/12/12(Sat)19:37 No.1893578
Definitely. Stuff like if they have any "allegiance" to Iron Hide. About her too, if she doesn't mind.
>> Radiant Dawn the Paladin 05/12/12(Sat)19:37 No.1893580

>> DM 05/12/12(Sat)19:47 No.1893833
No dragon would ever imagine allying with Ironhide. He is a genocidal monster and an enemy of all dragons.
She says she did not expect much of this migration, and for a while feared for her life, but now she has seen new hope and believes the experiences she has had have made her stronger.
The book says dragons are big, and suggests smiting with big things. If possible, attempt dropping boulders. Possibly boulders inscribed with prayer.
Noise remarks that Celestia was very understanding and kind, yet gave off an air of power she never expected from a pony.
Noise does not know how many dragons ended up in this splinter, but for reference she was a part of a splinter of 20 of various ages. In general, the older, larger dragons are the ones to keep an eye on. Them, or the most vocal ones.
She further tells that she has never liked the idea of mating that much, and has often wishes she would never grow up to be as monstrous as most dragons do.
Dragons who roost in Equestria rarely pay mind to migrating ones. Sometimes they join in to seek potential mates, but mostly they prefer to sleep in peace.
Noise does not know any of these dragons herself, but says that all dragons respect straight talk and assertive authority, greatly disliking over politeness.
Yep. You sure think about those things. Long and hard. You really understand your things now.
Give them earplugs
>> Radiant Dawn the Paladin 05/12/12(Sat)19:47 No.1893839

She did damn right not to say anything bad about her.
Tell her how it's no wonder she gives off that air of power since she is Celestia, the one who moves the sun, our one and only leader fuck Luna, and things like that.
I'm against Ironhide for Celestia and for the good of Equestria, no such evil is allowed to live.
I'm not that good at spells and rituals that may stop him, but as long as I have my Faith, nothing will stop me to Smite that bastard down.
Tell her that Dawn is my useless sister.

She is very happy to learn more about you, and would like to hear more, but you've arrived at the temporary dragon roost.

It is not much to look at. Just some rocky field with maybe a dozen dragons around. Noise seems worried. She tells you that splinters this small are very unusual and often bad news.

>> DM 05/12/12(Sat)20:20 No.1894615
You approach the center of the roost as a tight group, looking cautious.
One of the dragons, likely the eldest by Noise's judgement, rises up to greet you. Noise says you've come at a bad time. There has recently been a major internal argument among the splinter tribe, leading to it breaking down even further as half of the dragons headed northwards to seek safer grounds further away from Ironhide.
Those who stayed are now weighing their options.
If you have something to offer, do so, but otherwise leave them be. They have enough trouble as it is.

Noise further explains that small groups tend to make mating hard, leading to little offspring. Uniting them with another splinter might be a good plan, or alternatively they could be convinced to join the war effort as their mating is already likely a failure.

What do you do?

You ask Noise if the trinkets would be of any use.
She goes over them for a while and gets a wide smile on her face. They indeed might be of use.
While most of it is just fancy baubles, there is a Dragonheart Gem among them. Many dragons like to eat gems but these are usually left uneaten, as they pulse softly when near dragons. The pulse grows with every dragon nearby, so sometimes they are used during migrations to find other groups.
Noise knows that there is her old splinter back in the Griffon Kingdom to the northeast, and the group that split off from this splinter that was heading north.
She could offer these dragons the gem and some directions, possibly in exchange for a ride to the mountains and promises of future assistance.

She can then either join this splinter or stay with you as you search the mountains.

Noise knows the griffon kingdom splinter should be about 16 dragons strong, but the King needs to be informed so that he won't attack the dragons thinking they are there to take more roosting space by force. The king already had to evacuate two whole towns to make space for the dragons already there.

You explain your plan to Noise. She seems worried but agrees to present your case to the dragons here.

Noise listens and nods, remarking that if infighting was the reason the group broke off, you may need to deal with what or whoever the problem was.

You have arrived upon the mountain. The gem is pulsing harder, indicating there are more dragons here.
The scenery is rugged and dark. Jagged rock formations line the cliffs and an eery dark mist floats near the ground. Although it is day, it might as well be midnight here.
There are some paths leading towards a plateau, another that seems to head higher, possibly to a peak, and a lower path that enters some caves on a cliffside.

You spot that some of the rocks towards the plateau have been disturbed fairly recently.
Notably you also spot a path overgrown with some shrubs. It seems nobody has used it for years, possibly centuries, but it certainly is, or at least once was, a path.

You head out to the path. It soon begins leading sharply upwards, and the dark mist gets thicker as you go further up.
Fang-like rocks jut from the cliffs above, and dark clouds further mess with visibility. Luckily Radiant's torch provides ample light to see where you are going.

As you reach the end of the path, you come to a summit you never saw from below. It is black as night and nothing grows there. Some scattered stones indicate there once may have been a building here.
You can make out a vague shape in the darkness. It does not move.

How do you act?

You fail to judge the distance correctly and instead fall on your face.
If Celestia heard, she did not react.
While you know that your focus should've been insufficient to tell clearly, the shape in the dark radiates such pure evil you could easily feel it.
Upon hearing this, you get ready.
Noise says it still hasn't moved even a bit, but she can hear what sounds like a heartbeat.

You all move closer, ready to strike.
To your relief you find that it is not alive, simply a statue.
Remarkably, it appears to be completely intact, even though the stone ruins around it are worn and blasted.
The statue is grotesque, featuring parts of many animals. It is like a large pony, but instead of a head it has another body, much like one of a minotaur. It has mighty, jutting horns and perhaps most unnervingly, a dark, beating heart.
You also notice a worn, corroded sword discarded near the statue.

Though nearly destroyed by rust and the elements, you can still make out an inscription on the antiquated blade. A name. Valiance.
You inspect the statue, and realize it is an effigy of Tirek, the lord of Midnight. Regarded by some as a god of pure evil, he was said to wield the power of darkness, capable of twisting any being into a horrible monster.

No, but you did come really close to having to fight a demon.

Would you like to draw some conclusions?

You pick up Valiance's blade and turn to Noise.
She says she has only heard vague legends of this Tirek, but the heart seems to radiate some sort of malignant energy. It might be possible to peer into it to see some truth to the events than unfolded here.
She will need the party to help shield her from the darkness, as she fears that there might still be unexpected power left in this altar.

Your party stands ready, placing a ward on the altar and a protective aura upon Noise.
She steps before the heart and looks deep into it.
As the visions flood her mind, she does her best to narrate the unfolding events.

Valiance, knowing he could never save his princess and homeland alone and without aid, sought to find power that would let him face the dragons and end them once and for all. He swore he would make any sacrifice and suffer any fate so long as he could perform his service.
He soon began having dreams. Dreams of an altar shrouded in eternal midnight. He was drawn to find this place. He wanted to know why it called him, and what it's purpose was.

Suddenly, Noise recoils a bit from the heart. She says she felt it gaze back at her. She is not sure if she should continue, but wants to know what the truth behind Valiance is.

What do you advise her to do?

Everyone is absolutely confident that the ward worked.
Noise gazes back into the heart

Valiance sought out this place and climbed the long forgotten path. He fought twisted monsters and suffered great wounds, but pressed on. At the summit he found a temple dedicated to Tirek, the Lord of Midnight. having suffered greatly, he dropped his chipped and dulled blade, and pleaded to the dark one to reveal why he was called.
He was granted a vision, in which he cut down hundreds of dragons with ease, destroyed their nests and slaughtered their young. He was saving all of equestria.
With this vision burned to his mind, he grasped the beating heart of darkness and embraced his destiny. His wounds knit shut into gruesome scars and he began swelling into a massive size. Dark flames engulfed him and melted his armour, fusing it with his flesh and he was twisted into a colossal dragon.
Enraged by this twist of fate, Valiance smashed the temple from within, but could not harm the altar as it stood there, seemingly mocking him. He then-
Radiant tackles Noise down before she can gaze further. The heart was drawing her closer and closer.

I hit her on the head with the Book of Evil Things to Smite.
Just in case.
It's a very big book
And also sprinkle Holy Water on her and mutter a prayer.

The party comes out clean. You are pretty sure even Radiant's stallionface isn't a sign of evil after all.
Something deep inside Noise does light up though.
She looks at you with her head tilted, somewhat puzzled. She had been so absorbed in all the new things she saw and learned she was not paying attention.
>> Trusty [Tracker] 05/12/12(Sat)22:21 No.1896799

You find the perfect spot. It overlooks the dragon roost, giving you a perfect shot at every last one of them. You can confirm that there are nine of them, all seemingly adolescent dragons like Noise.
They cannot see you here. Hell they'd have a hard time seeing you if they were right on top of you.
Noise looks a bit concerned at the sudden silent attention. She asks if everyone is ready to go see the other splinter group now.
Critical friendzone.
She is ok with sleeping naked next to you, but only nonsexualy.
You are doomed to forever be so close yet so far.

Noise drinks the holy water. It has no visible effect but the evil inside her dies out.

It sure is convenient that Celestia gave you two NPC knights at the beginning of the session, ain't it?

You call for the guards Celestia promised to send. They arrive swiftly. Clad in the usual golden armour of Canterlot's royal guards, one is short and slim, while the other is burly and tall.

The party steps onto the plateau, with Noise taking the lead, flanked by Radiant and the two guards. Aenoi follows behind along with Zebro, while Dawn and Trusty take aim under the surprisingly snugly camo net.

Around the opposite edge you count nine adolescent dragons.
The biggest one, most likely their leader, a top-heavy dark grey one hops down to face you.
He demands to know who you are and what it is you are doing on his mountain.
>> DM 05/12/12(Sat)22:52 No.1897502

She tells him this is a time of great importance and that is 2EDGY4YOU shit can wait the few fucking weeks it takes to complete the migrations. With a Tirek-spawned abomination on the loose, there is ZERO reason to start acting up like this.
The dragons on the cliff seem impressed, but the leader is adamant. He came here to start his own brood, with all his best bros and the hottest ladies. His brood is gonna be awesomerer than any other, and bigger too.

The lightning bolt is ready and aimed. Radiant needs only to signal you.

You measure eachother for a moment and then leap into action.

>Not using some vidya soundtrack for all battles

Radiant charges in, swinging the Hammer of the Sun in a mighty arc. It lands a heavy blow on the dragon's shoulder, just missing his head. It shatters scale and bone, leaving one arm crippled. Before she can ready another strike though, the dragon spins with an agility that belies his size, striking Radiant from below with his spiky tail. The blow is heavy and leaves her winded, but the Sun Plate protected her vitals. It was just like Celestia herself guarding your heart~
You might have some internal injuries though.
Roll for another go.

Radiant pulls herself together and swings anew. Her blow strikes the dragon in the chest. As he recoils and prepares for a blow, she swings once more, taking the broken arm clean off. The dragon stumbles and falls, but quickly begins to get back up again

You swing again, somewhat exhausted from whiffing your killing blow, but still manage to wound his leg. In retaliation, the dragon takes to the air and drops on top of you. You are pretty sure that "SNAP" you heard was a bad snap, not a good one.
The Sun Plate is buckled and dented around you, digging into your sides. You can taste blood in your mouth.

Her little speech is met with a bellowing laughter. A dragon stands up from among the group, clapping. He thanks you all for this little show you put on. However he has no intention of letting his brood be lost just because his right hand man got his ass beat.
He gives you one chance to leave without trouble. Take it or leave it.

The newly risen dragon's boast is met with cunning smiles. Before he can figure out what is going on, a lightning bolt strikes him clean through the shin. Electricity flows into his leg, causing it to convulse, sending him crashing into the plateau center.
The two guards are there to meet him.

You collapse from the pain. Try to focus harder.
The bear rises, but the spell is weak, it might fall apart soon.

Seeing he is outnumbered and outgunned, the dragon roars out a command and two more dragons join the fray. A green one and a blue one. The leader is black.

Three dragons
A party of five + a bear + 2 NPCs

You ballsed it up. Your shot hit Noise.
The bear leaps on the green dragon. It was focused elsewhere and was certainly not expecting an undead bear to jump it. The dragon suffers deep slashes in the flanks and face, and falls over.
You burst from the shadow and remain unseen.
Pick a target.
You try to summon up the power of the sun to carry you.
You cannot.
However you should be able to fight next round.

The green dragon is down and being mauled

Your shot hits his other leg, removing his ability to walk.

BAM. Right through the ol' peeper. The dragon reels in pain and is open for a followup
The Paladin, still in great pain stumbles and falls over. The cleric rushes to protect her, but both are about to feel the full force of an overhead blow from the black dragon WHEN SUDDENLY
Conducting between the two arrows in its legs, the third lightning bolt lights up the black dragon like a christmas tree. Sparks fly as some of it's scales peel off and it slumps over.

You leap in with a final push, slaying the dragon trio where they stand. As the dust settles you recap the situation.

You agree to see to it that the two splinters are united once again.
Noise tells you the elder is sad that some of his children had to die for this victory, but he will uphold the deal. His brood will answer the call to battle Old Ironhide.

Things you could do now:
Go check if you forgot anything on the mountain
Return to Canterlot Castle and explain the situation
Your party is also joined a zombie dragon. It is a very stable constructs and can take a heavy beating. You can also ride it.
The bear crumbles though.

Also, I excuse myself to have some alone time, sneak back to the statue of Tirek, place up a ward with Holy Water around it, and then stare it in the eye and swear on Celestia that I will find a way to destroy the evil that sprouts from his remains as soon as we find a way to destroy him without the fear that we might release him.

I think Dawn's supercrit warned them of that.

>> DM 05/13/12(Sun)01:02 No.1900340
The Pegasus Guard butts in, mentioning that he knows some healing spells. The good paladin should seek medical attention when possible, but he could give her some extra hours here and now.

No not really, but you wanted to check out the caves.
Celestia still needs to know the truth about Ironhide, and you need to contact the Griffon King so he can send Noise's clan and the Stormherald to aid in the battle.

Some aspects of the cave imply it might not be a natural formation.You can't quite put a hoof on why, though.
If someone doesn't mind running back five or so horses to check, we can't be sure.
I think I started at around 19:00, and it's 8:40 now

The rest of the party lines up after some pushing and shoving, then heads deeper. The cave soon begins to widen up and you notice archways carved into the ceiling. Perhaps more curiously the path seems to slowly be forming into stairs.

Keep going?

Many of the structures seem to be a strange fusion of things built from blocks and shapes carved out of the walls themselves. They all seem to coherently link to eachother, giving you the impression that this might be some sort of pseudo-building.
Smarty takes a look around and says the style reminds him of Platinum-era Unicornia, if rougher.
Noise admits she has no idea. She doesn't know much about pony history, and this certainly isn't a structure made by dragons.

"It am are fancy house from land of pony with horn on head from long time ago. Simple enough for you?"
You feel that there might be evil here, but it seems to be fading in and out somehow.
You spot some shadows skittering around in the darkness, and notice that the room you are in is larger than it would seem. One exit leads further down, another to a side room.

The side room has some barrels. They are unopened and unmarked, but heavy.

It is done. You can now see that the room is empty.
The barrels contain assorted spices and reagents. They would only be valuable to a spellcaster.
The dawn sisters comically collide with eachother as the important pony leaves without even looking back.
You can't seem to do anything to the sign, but it is quite pink.
The zombie dragon shrugs. It just wanted to find a mate, it doesn't really care about the history of holes in rocks. it does tell you that it can smell treasure lower down.

You can. You grab some potent healing herbs and a few other odds and ends you like the look of.

As you head downwards, the caver opens up to a sideless spiral staircase, leading down into the darkness. You can see drops of water falling down into the dark abyss, and worryingly, sometimes you see one falling back up.
The stairs end abruptly. They have been broken. The way is too long to jump.

You convince the party to fashion a bridge.
As the party continues down, they occasionally see the torch still falling past them in both directions. You come across a large door planted in the middle of the stairwell. Noise remarks that it has a riddle written in dragontongue on it.

Smarty gives everyone a blank look, then simply steps around the door. It's a sideless staircase in mid air. Nothing is stopping him from just ignoring the door and moving on.

As you continue downwards you find the staircase ends in a small room. On one wall is a mirror. On the other is a short corridor that ends in a blank wall. However you can see a door at the end of the corridor in the mirror.

The mirror is made of plot element, and cannot be broken until you solve the puzzle.

Smarty gives you an approving nod
The way is now open. You see it is a treasure room filled with loot apparently gathered from dead knights and several items obviously stolen from a wizard's tower or mage academy.
In the center of the room is a floating hourglass trapped in a magic field. It gives off a tremendous amount of energy that makes your manes frizzy.

Feel free to pick out some key loot, and grab some for Trusty too. The poor fellow fell asleep on the stairs.

No. Please stop ignoring the GIANT GLOWING PLOT HOOK
And with good reason. You notice the torch falling again. As it hits the hourglass it starts falling upwards.
You find a jeweled amulet emblazoned with the sun. You feel great energy in it. It will project a shield around you as you charge into battle, making you immune to damage for the first round.
>> Aenoi [Cleric] 05/13/12(Sun)02:57 No.1902846

>> DM 05/13/12(Sun)03:05 No.1903009
You grab your armour. It is well made and even fits nicely. The book contains some mending spells for repairing possibly fatal damage.You then grab a handy small spyglass for Trusty. It even has a neat strap so he can wear it like a hat.
There is a tattered wizard robe blackened with mold and soot. Perfect for looking spooky.
You also find a scroll that tells you how to fire a simple yet effective magic missile.
You get a crown too.
Finally everyone gathers by the hourglass.
Smarty remarks that it seems similar to the ones used as decorations in areas dedicated to the works of Starswirls the Bearded, a notable unicorn time mage.
As he takes a closer look he says be believes he can see events unfolding inside, as if trapped in an endless loop within the swirling sand.

You are fairly certain this is the first coming of Ironhide you see. Perhaps most worryingly, it is seen through his eyes.
As you lightly tap the hourglass the light layer of sand on the floor whips up around you. For a fraction for a fraction of a second you see flashes of the past, events long since bygone, and hear the voices of the centuries ago dead.

Touch it again?

The sands stir up again. You are in the air, flying. Below you can see hundreds of horrible monsters fleeing terror as you approach. You strike at them with your mighty blade and it effortlessly cleaves them apart. You blast forth the rays of the sun granted to you by the blessings of Celestia and rejoice as the foul beasts are burned to cinders. As they run they scream obscenities and mockery to your perfect god, which only serves to fuel your will to slay them.
In the distance you can see the sun rising. Celestia has come to thank you in person no doubt. She flies from Canterlot herself to grant you her praise. You hurry to meet her. Surely she will be overjoyed to see all the good you have done.

The vision ends as you pull away from the hourglass. You are not sure how, but this trinket seems to have stored some of the final moments of Valiance's life in it as he saw them.
