Venia, Unyielding and Valeriana had some fun
Pumpkin and Bearing decided to try for a child
Radiant needs to talk to the king
Pumpkin has two new blades to introduce to Valeriana
And everyone should gear up to travel to the Underkingdom


Go find Peaches, she should be in Kilana's room.
Knock on the door.
"Anypony there?"


Oh gosh…
A-are we still in bed or is it the next day already?


Wake up.
Does my back still hurt?
Did I manage to get rest at all?

Roll #1 4, 6 = 10


Has the Lordblade issue been resolved yet? If not, I propose using him to negotiate with Equestria.


Peaches opens up
"Kilana is still asleep I think."
Seems so.
You were the first to wake up.
It still hurts.
But you feel well rested
You might want to talk to pumpkin about that.


Groan and get out of bed.
Would putting on armor now hurt like hell?

Roll #1 3 = 3


I'll probably need to talk to Frosty about it first. Capture him, but return him safely to Equestria as proof we will not fight a needless war and are open to negotiation.


"I assume you slept well?"


Of course I am.

I look at the both of them and groan softly, rubbing out my eyes. Eventually I lie back again, cuddling with Anvil with my eyes closed, waiting for them to wake up too.


You might want to modify your armour later to compensate for the wound.
Frosty is available in the throne room.
"Better than ever…
…and I feel kinda guilty for it. Knowing all my friends slept in the mud again…"
Two shadows walk in and bring some breakfast.
One of them has the beret from earlier.


Pretend to be asleep still


Damn it…
I still can't reach it to heal myself, can I?

Roll #1 10 = 10


Move for the main lobby, we need breakfast.
"So let me guess… You'll be too guilty to eat a proper meal, too, right?"


The shadows set the food down and Valeriana gets up eat.
You can.
Despite the magical nature of the wound, the king clearly had no true intention to cause permanent harm, so unlike the chest wound, this can be healed.
"…I won't say no to one. As mad as it may feel, I still want to do it."


I'll be slow

"King Frostmourn? I have an alternate proposal for dealing with the Lordblade. Capture him alive, but do nothing to harm him, and send a letter to Equestria telling them that we will guarantee the safe return of their agent so long as they cease further aggression and open themselves up to trade negotiation. If they refuse, we make sure everyone knows how they needlessly condemned one of their own ponies to doom. We can use this as proof of their lack of virtue, which may separate them from the core of their power, the Elements of Harmony. Best case scenario, even Equestrians will learn of this and doubt their own rulers. What do you think?"


Hug Anvil a little closer and continue pretending.

Although knowing her she might already know I'm awake.


"Good. And we will start off big."
Get some food for both of us.
"First thing, you'll meet your trainer, Valeriana Swansong."

Roll #1 7 + 2 = 9


Still, I'd rather not wear armor over it just yet.
Put on my robe and visit the Doc, just in case.
Did Radiant manage to figure out on her own the connection between the two wounds?

Roll #1 6 = 6


If she does, she is ignoring it, finishing her meal in peace.
She then turns back to look at you two and smiles
"A cunning plan. My only fear is the Lordblade's own zeal. From what we have seen, they do not value their own lives very much."
"Just me? What about Fourtones? Shouldn't he met her too?"
She is a very necromancy opposing pony.
It was not a hard connection to make.


Kick at something.
Try not to break anything.

Roll #1 3 = 3


"He will. In time. Today is going to be… Different."
Find Waymaker.


Just keep up snuggling.

Rolling for snuggle quality '1d10'

Roll #1 2 = 2


We'll have to.. 'ensure' his good health then, even if he doesn't wish it. Keeping him restrained in a padded room under constant watch and force-feeding is an option. As long as he is 'healthy'."


"Thinking about it, you might be right.
Can you go call him and meet me at the old tower?"


You broke a vase in doc's waiting room.
He'll want that repaired.
Peaches nods and heads off to find Waymarker
He farts in his sleep.
"We best be careful. They are known for exploding after all.
I believe you should speak to Pumpkin about this as well."


… dammit Anvil
Subtly knee him softly to wake him up, pretending to be asleep myself still


I'll get him another one later.
Keep waiting for the check-up.


I meant go find Fourtones. Can I assume she did that?
Find Waymaker.
"Had a nice night?"


He groans and rubs his eyes
"What a night…
Morning Valeriana"
He calls you in
Yeah ok sure
"As nice as one needs. Is it time to meet your master now?"


Keep up my ruse


"Yeah. And a few other Northblade recruits too.
Only the bigshots today, we'll introduce the rest of your ponies later on this week."
Go to the old tower with him.


Go in.
"Morning Doc. I just wanted you to check a wound on my back."


Go find Pumpkin then


Let's say you find me on the way to the tower.
"Hi Verne. Need anything?"


"Still asleep, is she?"
"Must be tired. Poor thing."
"You don't seem tired through."
"…are you suggesting something?"
He follows along, taking note of the path taken.
…Valeriana isn't here.
A few shadows are, but they remain hidden.
"What an unusual place…"
"Sure thing. Let's take a look and… urgh. What caused this?"


"King Frostmourne."


Are Fourtones and Peaches here?
"Old loving tower. Away from glances, near enough to the castle and forest both."


I smile slightly and keep listening to their banter


"Radiant. Please… take a seat."
Peaches catches up eventually. The run to the old cemetery and back takes a while.
"Hmm. And where is the master?"
Valeriana stiffens up for a moment
"I am needed."
She then plants a quick kiss on Unyielding and vanishes out the door grabbing her cloak along the way.


"Looks like she's out. Want to spar, in the meanwhile? No tricks this time."



"Waymaker is an Equestrian Lordblade. However, Frosty and I… have a plan. Knock him out and capture him, but do not seriously injure or kill him."


Take a seat.


"That might not be doable. It's too late."


I roll over and yawn


Waymarker, being a veteran spy of several decades, twitches an ear to hear that
She soon arrives, hood pulled over her head and shadows moving to keep her masked
"And who are there, Pumpkin?"
"I'm sorry. So very, very sorry for yesterday."
"Well good morning sleepyhead."
he pats your belly

Roll #1 2 + 2 = 4


"Northblade recruits, Valeriana. I think you might know this one already."
Motion to waymaker.
Are peaches and foutones here?


"Morning sweetheart."
I rub my eyes again
"W-what time is it?"


>And then radiant took a seat
"The king? Quite a wound for a sparring accident. I'll do my best."
He tries to kickstart the healing process
Yes they are
She looks at him with sharp eyes
Hearing her voice makes him snap around
"Not noon yet I think."

Roll #1 7 + 2 = 9


"Matters of the person are rude to be intruded on, blade. You need not know what my girlfriend wants in bed."


Roll #0 2 + 2 = 4


"Calm down Waymaker. Remember you have an oath. We should all move into the forest to get started. You can insult each other all you want later."


"I tried to heal it myself, more or less…"


I grunt and get up
"Last night was… uh… long."


"Well looks like it'll close with a bit of rest and care. Try not to get into any big fights for a while though, ok?"
He ignores you, focusing on Valeriana.
"The forest nothing, Swansong. Do you have any idea who that is? Your master is the vilest traitor my homeland has ever seen!"
"Yep. It sure was.
…fun too."


"And now, she's loyal to the High King. And the High King calls Ironfoe his home too.
Without her intervention, nothing of this would have ever happened.
Not the Northblades, not the united north, not a chance to fight off the Equestrians.
A betrayal to you set in motion the events that will save the North."


I blush, smiling a little


"How much 'a while' means?"


"Depends. Keep it clean and bandaged and don't agitate it, and it should be good in a few days."
"Don't worry. She has nothing on you though."
"It also set back all the plans Ironfoe had. Nearly cost us our king. And stopped us from ever doing what we intended to.
How long will it take for her to just stab you in the back as well?"


My ears perk up
"She doesn't? I mean, n-not that that matters or anything!"


"I doubt she will.
Now, do you want to back all your accusations with steel, or cooperate and get the training started?"


"Thank you. And sorry about the vase, I'll get you another one…"


"You'd better. I liked that vase.
Good day to you."
"Well, you know how much I love your specialty"
"Hm. You will forgive me if I remain wary. But I will come along. For now."


"Good day to you too!"

Now time to see Frostmourne.
Try to find him.


He is in the throne room
"Ah there you are.
…I wanted to tell you I'm sorry for yesterday. I should not have acted out like that."


I blush bright red again
"Ah… that. I wouldn't call it my specialty… I don't have a cutie mark that shows for it after all."


"Thank you for your cooperation."
Turn to everyone here.
Peaches, Fourtones, Valeriana, Waymaker.
Verne if he's still here.
"Now, let's move on."
Make my way deep inside the forest and make sure nopony but us is here.
"Valeriana, all clean?"

Roll #0 10 = 10


Since I know when the execution will take place can I speak to pumpkin through the crystal?

Roll #0 4 + 2 = 6


"Hm, true. Still. It is a very special thing to me at least~"
She shudders a little
"…far from it."
You can.


"How many?"


I nod my head.
huh, I didn't expect him to apologize…
"I forgive you. Both of us got in the heat of the battle, I should have just let you get up."


"I-I'm glad you appreciate my efforts then sweetheart."
I jump out of bed.
"Now, we should probably get ready for the day. I might need to go see Frostmourn soon about the Underkingdom business."


"…maybe two hundred and mine…"
"It would really have been enough that you left the sword alone. It is very important to me.
…sorry for the hammer and mane too."
"uh… yeah.
…just a quick one?"
He tries his best at a cute pleading look

Roll #1 4 = 4


"The hammer was just a stock weapon. The mane…"
I wince.
"It will grow back. But I need to talk to you about your sword. When you slashed me, I remembered something."


I give him a look
"Really? After all that you're still not done?"
I sigh and walk up to him
"Fine then, just sit back and relax."
Work my special magic '1d10+2'

Roll #1 7 + 2 = 9


"Well, I guess our guest revealed himself for what he is a bit sooner than expected."
Turn to Fourtones.
"Your first assignment as Northblade will be to eliminate the Equestrian Lordblade Waymaker."
Vanish. Backstab Waymaker.

Roll #0 5 + 2 = 7


"Do tell. And please, get a manecut at my expense."
It is most magical and satisfying
"Thanks dear… you know how much I appreciate it."
You are free to go, lover girl.
Fourtones looks a little suspicious, then pulls his sword out of his cane and turns to face Waymarker.
The spymaster is visibly surprised
"Lordblade? Wha-ARGH"
He then falls over from the knife in his back


Blind him.
"We know much. Much more than you think."

Roll #0 6 = 6


I nuzzle his cheek
"Of course I do sweetie~. I'll see you later, alright?"
Go find Frosty


He blindly crawls away
"And much less than you think…"
He and Radiant are in the throne room


"King Frostmourn? Lady Radiant? Am I interrupting?"


"On your toes, everyone!"
Backstab again.

Roll #0 10 + 2 = 12


It's a 14.
+4 because blind.


Wince again, and hoof at my mane.
"Yes, I will…"

Shake my head.
"But that doesn't matter. When you cut me I remembered the details of how I got the scar on my chest. By a Necromancer. And I felt the same pain. Do you have to tell me something about the Northern Regalia, Frostmourne?"


Activate the crystal.

"Pumpkin? Change of plans. Maim him as little as possible. If needed, kill but leave body in good shape for resurrection."


"Not much. What do you need?"
From humble beginnings rose a blade that would soon turn blood to ice throughout the north. A child raised on theft and fear, who found his calling among the blades that serve the crown. A lover. A fighter. A son. A hero.
Pumpkin Swansong - the Kingslayer.
His strike true. His cause pure. And his blade - deadly.
The Lordblade never stood a chance.
…but he isn't exploding.
"The Northern Regalia has been bound with a few spells for emergency use."


That's the plan. I need to talk with him too.


"Such as spells vile Necromancers use?"


"We are going to use his good health as a goodwill measure, and if Equestria refuses, it shows the world their vileness."


A doppleganger? Check his body for the bomb.

Roll #0 10 + 2 = 12


"Just figured we'd want to discuss the course of action regarding the Underkingdom some more."

I cock my head to the side but keep quiet


Once I'm done, Escape Artist out of the Helplessness induced by Fervor.


"We are just having a talk."


"Spells that enable even a relatively weak pony such as myself to turn a bad situation around when faced with a superior foe."
No bomb.
This is a fake.
Also the coat was dyed. This guy was a decoy. A disguise.


"Situation, Pumpkin?"


"You have your magic for that already. And you could have chosen any spell, not one that is designed by heretics."


"Everypony, get ready. Waymaker is Spymaster of Ironfoe, he'll have backup!"
Get the King to safety. Waymaker is on the loose and Ironfoe spies are inbound on our position.


I lowers my ears slightly, just keeping quiet


"Hmm. Understood."

"Venus? Prepare yourself. We have work to do."

Am I in the throne room with Frosty since I was speaking with him just now?


"I chose a spell that ensures effect. Touch of Death, regardless of it's origin, is a spell well suited to bind to a weapon. It inherently has short range, but the effects are remarkably powerful.
The weapon itself is built into a catalyst as well. I can trigger it even if I would lose my horn. As I said. It is a last resort. But a strong one. Do not think I have turned to soul theft or raising the dead. I merely made a sword that is better at killing."
Fourtones plants his cane down and hops onto it for a higher view.
Valeriana nods to a shadow that tosses her the Lordblade Uniform which she hastily pulls on.
Peaches crouches behind you
"I need a weapon…"
You can get back there easily.


"You are in luck."
Give her one of my two daggers.
"Valeriana! Where from?"


Stealth just in case as I go back.

Roll #0 1 = 1


I nod quietly


"I can see your point, but I do not approve of it. I cannot even think of Blessing such a weapon. I know you want to be strong for your nation, but is lowering your standards, losing the Divine's grace and turning to such ways really how you want to do it?"


"Everywhere. I have shadows after them all.
…amazingly, I think they changed plans.
They are all aiming for us. Even the ones who were headed for Ironfoe and Wintersgrasp. Save for a few.
I think he really wants me dead."
You stumble in, making a ruckus and drawing all attention to you.
"It is a sword. That. Kills. Better.
It may wither the flesh and scar the bone, but I can list you a dozen creatures with viler poisons within their fangs than that. Are they evil as well?"


"Excuse me."

Go up to Frosty and whisper.

"Pumpkin contacted me. The Lordblade is loose and had a decoy take the fall for him. Arm yourself and summon the guards."


"No, but animals do not chose to…. Good day, Verne…"


"We'll let him see death as he wishes. Only, not yours. I have warned Verne already, the King should be getting to safety right now."
"Good thing lordblades hate your guts, uh?"
Stealth and stay ready.

Roll #0 2 + 1 = 3


"Well I suppo-"



"Good to see you here. Arm yourself. Lordblade loose, according to Pumpkin. I will stay here for now."


My eyes widen
"… Sun be damned."


"What's wrong?"


"We've got a Lordblade on our hooves it seems… Again."


He hefts up the Northern Regalia
"Let them come. NORTHBLADES! TO ME!"
Two shadows drop from the ceiling
"…where are the others?"
"We are facing the rest of this attack in the woods. This is all I can get to you. He is in the room! Be careful!"
"Guess so. Here they come!"
Indeed, in a rustle of leaves several spies leap out of the trees.
Fourtones smacks one aside with a kick and slashes him in the back before dodging the sword of another.
Valeriana sits still before vanishing away from a spy, snapping his neck from behind and backhoofing his friend in the chin.
Another spy leaps for you and Peaches

Roll #1 4 = 4


"A lordblade is loose. Recent action taken failed, as a decoy had taken its place. It is likely the target will plan some desperate move and may attack here at any time. Prepare yourselves and summon the guards."


Vanish and backstab him!

"Peaches! Watch out!"
'1d10' for her initiative, Inspire!

Roll #0 4 + 2 = 6

Roll #1 10 = 10


"What!? Here!?"

Throw a protective shield around Frosty!

Roll #0 5 = 5


Stomp my hooves.
"Damn it, I need a weapon!"



Conjure her a lightning warhammer!

Roll #0 6 + 2 = 8



Inspire them with my words.

Roll #0 7 = 7


Ready it.
"Thank you!… Doc told me not to strain myself but this might be an exception!"

Stay on my guard.


Her battle cry warms your heart. It is a strong one for one who has endured so much in life.
You evade the spy and stab him, sending him tumbling.
Bolstered by the warcry, Valeriana pulls out her bow and shoots another spy through the eye as Fourtones breaks his assailant's knee.
A few shadows flitter in the trees before they are thrown aside and onto the ground.
Valeriana looks up and gasps.
A slight crackle of energy signals an incoming spell.

Roll #1 2 = 2



'1d10+1' Initiative

Roll #0 1 + 1 = 2

Roll #1 10 + 1 = 11


"It's him."
Charge him! Shatter!
While Peach goes with Heroism.

Roll #0 3 + 2 = 5

Roll #1 1 = 1


For the Sun!

Roll #1 8 = 8


No worries!

Roll #0 3 = 3


You thought well ahead of him and decided to hide right in the middle of the room.
You charge in at the hidden figure among the trees, but hear a pained scream as one of the spies slashes Peaches in the face.
Waymarker, being a trained assassin, knows when to take an opportunity and leaps down from the tree, jumping off your head and slamming his sword right into Valeriana
You notice the assassin. He is lurking up near the ceiling, charging a Spellbreaker.


Backstab him!

Can Peaches get up?

Roll #0 9 + 2 = 11

Roll #1 9 = 9


From here, I can…

Blind it!

Roll #0 7 = 7


Activate my Wings of Light then leap at him and attack!

Roll #1 9, 8 = 17


Oh yeah? Well use my own Spellbreaker on him!

Roll #0 9 = 9


Your divine rage allows you to at least gather enough strength to ignore the pained cries of Peaches, who stumbles away from the spy who is still slashing at her.
Your blade strikes the Lordblade, but you can feel this was no killing blow. His suit can well resist one such hit.
You do have his attention now though.
Meanwhile, Fourtones takes a dagger to the gut.
Your combines assault drops him off his perch and lands him at ground level.
A second one hops down as well, but is quickly cornered by the two shadows and Frostmourn.


From up high activate Fervor and nosedive down with a Power Attack

Roll #1 8 = 8


"Stand proud, children of the North!"
Blind the lordblade!

Peaches inspires!

Roll #0 6 = 6

Roll #1 4 = 4




Roll #0 9 = 9


NOW get that Protective Bubble up around Frostmourn!

Roll #0 10 = 10


You toss mud at him, making him pull his mask off in anger.
"Well well Swansong. I always thought the name was familiar. So you're Lord Ilistar's kid then?
…you look older than I expected."
As a strong shield surrounds Frostmourn, the assassins take a few steps back in fear, dropping their weapons.
They attempt to regain their courage

Roll #1 8, 8 = 16



"Don't move, or you WILL be killed. Do not think it makes you safe from interrogation, either."

Terrify again.

Roll #0 9 = 9


"No. I am Valeriana's son. Nothing more, nothing less."
Escape Artist to get out from helplessness.

Roll #0 10 + 4 = 14


Also, Peaches, Attack him too!

Roll #0 6 = 6


+2, beefed the dice field.


Pick their weapons with my telekinesis and throw them away!

Roll #0 4 = 4


Also you dive down with massive force, crushing one of the assassins helpless before the other grabs his weapon and gets back to fighting
He throws his sword at you and then surrenders.
DC5 to get away unharmed.
He isn't blind any more, he took the muddy mask off.
You slash him the back again, ripping his suit open and exposing his body
"Same damned thing. I'm taking you back to him!"
He vanishes.
Avoid being knocked out: DC VS me

Roll #1 8 = 8


Hold the assasin down, hammer raised.


But it was a crit ;_;
Avoid him!
If I fail, Escape Artist!

Peaches, Inspire!

Roll #0 4 = 4

Roll #1 7 = 7


Dodge it.

"King Frostmourn, we should keep them alive. Additional.. 'materials' for our negotiation should benefit us."

Roll #0 3 = 3


Force either one of them that tries something down with telekinesis!

If they stand down, inspect the room again.

Roll #0 6 = 6


Yes. Against a very blade resistant suit. Ever heard of multi-phase bosses?
You get sapped in the head but muscle out of it after a while of dizziness.
Peaches is shouting at you to get up and get a grip.
As you get your eyes back to focus, you see the spies have Veleriana held down and Fourtones is helpless.
"It's over kid. Put the blades down and come quietly."
The sword slashes a part of your ear off before hitting a wall.
"Perhaps… perhaps…"
The assassins stay down.
That seems to have been all of them.
The two shadows look distressed.


"Ghhh! Hopefully a healer can reattach that…"


I quickly turn to the shadows

"What's wrong? What's happening? More coming?"


Also, Mend his ear '1d10'

Roll #1 7 = 7


Stay guard above the assasins.
"One of you tries anything I'll send you to Tartarus before you have time to think"


"Tch… Great help, that Fourtones…"
How many spies on Valeriana?
"And what, go back to Equestria? With the same bastards that made my life miserable all this time?"


yeah it'll heal.
Just a little scar will remain.
I'm down… Pumpkin is alone against him now… He wants me alive…
Like all of them.
Fourtones is trying to reach for something inside his coat.
"Yes. My Lord wants to see you after all this time, Pumpkin. He gave very specific orders. Lady Valeriana and the child were to be brought back alive."


"Where are you? We are going there to help!"


"I am a Northblade.
So is my mother.
What if we don't come back alive?"
Lock eyes with him.


"Where!? We'll be on our way in a jiffy!"

Turn to the rest

"Tie those assassins up, will you!"


"! No.. damn it! A valuable asset is at stake! Activate what we can, Valeriana and Pumpkin must survive!"


I'm in the woods!
"My mission was to ensure minimal resistance against Equestria in Ironfoe. But returning you takes priority. He did not say why. But he assured me, indeed all of us, that bringing you back was to supersede all other missions.
Now disarm yourself and come quietly. Or I will make sure you get to him alive but unable to hold a sword."


Does Kilana even know about the underbog thing? I'm off to the woods to see how the lordblades are doing.


"Excuse me ladies and gentlecolts."

Since I still have my wings of Light fly out the nearest window and head towards the woods!
Can I see them from up there?

Roll #1 1 = 1


"Right, let's move then!"

Get to the woods on the double! '1d10'
Conjure another lightning warhammer on the way! '1d10+2'

Roll #1 2 = 2


"Just activate the Warriors of Sunlight! Spare no expense anymore!"


'r2 1d10+2'

Roll #1 5 = 5 / Roll #2 5 + 2 = 7


"I have a counteroffer.
Me against you. Our blades only. Defeat me, and I will not oppose resistance.
If I win, you will let Valeriana go, and I will come anyway."
Clench my dagger tightly.
"But refuse, and I'll show you what 'blaze of glory' really means."


I would come along if I didn't need to sleep now


Well it seems hundreds of spies have pinned down everyone but Pumpkin.
You smack into the window and break it.
As you do, the prisoner you were guarding hops off you and out the window.
You won't make it there just yet
"Hm. Well well.
I can see who's boy you are easily. You sound just like your father did when he was younger.
Very well then.
Until one of us submits. Blades only."



Roll #1 5 = 5


Fine by me, gives me more time to prepare.
'1d10+2' to conjure me a set of lightning armor

Roll #1 6 + 2 = 8


Well then. Its time to raise dead and help out someone. '1d10'

Roll #1 3 = 3


"Mh. I took it all from my mother."
Attack him. Do a Backstabbing motion with my blade!
+1 from inspire

Roll #0 7 + 3 = 10


You get dragged along out the window, hanging onto his tail.
Five spies walk up from behind you.
"Hold it right there."
"And I know who she got it from. As I said. Just like him."
He keeps facing you, protecting his torn open back and slashing out with his sword when you get near

Roll #1 5 = 5


You are ready.
And after some running, you can see Kilana got in trouble with some more spies.


Radiant stronk, hold him back!

Roll #1 3 = 3


I take the hit struck true.
Shatter him now!
"You sure talk highly of him…"

Roll #0 8 = 8


"What is it you want? To cause trouble in my home? To kill my friends? I bet you don't even have friends, what do you really know about that pony next to you? How can you know that they were honest with you when they so easily lie? I think you should reconsider how easily you might be betrayed and what you really have in life.." '1d10' for deathsong

Roll #1 9 = 9


I stand besides her, ready to unleash an electric Storm Bolt if they try something cute '1d10'

Roll #1 3 = 3


He drags you along instead. You get a face full of mud, snow and twigs.
They take a look at eachother
"We're just following orders"'
"Nothing personal"
"We fight for our home of Ironfoe"
"…do we really?"
Yes. You did slash him in the face
"Yes. And for a reason. He is a strong leader. A great fighter. And a devoted pony in all aspects. I would not dare speak any less of him."
He tries to wrestle the knife from your before you can damage his suit further.
The spies turn around to face you
"Stay. Back."

Roll #1 10 = 10


I nod at you.


Lets try raise ancients this time. '1d10'

Roll #1 3 = 3


I think it's time to smash one of his legs.

Roll #1 4 = 4


Damnit. Try to recover the knife.
"A great leader following terrible orders.
Killing a whole castle with poison, bombing the basement of a school…
A great leader indeed!"

Roll #0 10 = 10


You cut off a bit of his tail and slam down in the dirt as he takes flight and flees.
One of the spies slaps the staff out of your hooves
"Don't try anything!"
And then Pumpkin was disarmed.


A normal electric Magic Bolt will have to do then. '1d10'

"Or what?"

Roll #1 8 = 8


Damn it!
Follow and beat to submission!

Roll #1 8 = 8


fuck, cheapshot that one and pick the staff back up.


You do get the knife back.
"The end justifies the means. Once the banner of Equestria flies over all the world, we can know lasting, eternal peace."
he vanishes, and goes for a backstab
DC to avoid is VS me
The five snap to attention as you knock one over and pick up the staff and Venia zaps another
You now have four very angry spies against you.
You manifest your wings again and take flight.
lets see if he can get away from that 8
'r2 1d10'

Roll #1 3 = 3 / Roll #2 2 = 2


He can't.
Radiant beats him down from the air.


Well, I'll just have to get through them. touch of death on the nearest one.

Roll #0 9 = 9


Vanish myself and go for a backstab in return.
"I thought you said no Tricks."

Roll #0 5 + 2 = 7


"If you have any rope on you then you are in luck. If not I am going to break your legs."
Word of Power.

Roll #1 9 = 9


Let's see if we can change those into beaten spies instead. '1d10'

Storm Bolt, electrical charged, 4 times, 1 for each

Roll #1 5 = 5


Make that Energy Orb then


You slash at his exposed back, making him reel
"I said blades only."
He then deploys his hidden blades and pulls a second sword
"And I have plenty to go around!"
He charges at you with a spinning attack, trying to land all four blades into you
Roll to dodge each.
He stays down
"Bah. Just tie me up then. I don't get paid enough to bother losing my legs."
This was not a good plan at all. You came dangerous close to miscasting without really causing much else.
Also Storm Bolt does not work that way.
You drain life from the nearest spy, causing him the scream an unearthly cry of pain as his lifespan drains away, leaving decaying skin on his side.

Roll #1 7, 10, 4, 5 = 26


I smile as creepily as possible. "Should I continue or will you yield and save your lives? "

Roll #0 7 = 7


Have her throw the dagger right onto his face.

Then, try to dodge those blades!
"See, funny thing. That too is my blade!"

Roll #0 5, 6, 2, 10 = 23

Roll #1 6 + 1 = 7


Tie him up.
"We'll get back for you later!"

Can I see where the others are yet?

Roll #1 7 = 7


Can I rearrange the rolls to avoid most blades?
Placing them in order I'd get hit only once.


"I don't have time for this crap!"

Smash one of them with my warhammer! Power Attack!

Roll #0 8 = 8


Yeah sure whatever floats your ego.
One hit.
Also Peaches grabs the knife and leaps up
"And this is mine."
A spy leaps in to intercept Peaches
"Lets make this easy for us all. Look over there. Our Master is fighting against his target. He told us to stay back and let whatever happens, happen.
You stay back here with us, nobody gets hurt."

Roll #1 10 = 10



Aw yeah, I feel so powerful.
"Stand down, Peach."
Grab the dagger she threw.
"I was talking about this."
Backstab him again!

Roll #0 2 + 2 = 4


They went in the other direction. The assassin was trying to flee away.
Peaches didn't really need that command seeing as how the sly kicked her lights out.
"I grow deeply tired of you you one trick pony!"
he spins around and grabs you by the throat

Roll #1 3 = 3


"But his target is my bro, I can't just 'let what happens happen' " can I inspire him from here?


Leave him for now and follow them!

Roll #1 9 = 9


Ops, looks like that didn't work like he hoped!
"Here, have this new trick!"
Shatter, right on his face!

Roll #0 8 = 8


if not I want do a flip over one of the spies, with touch of death, and then climb into a tree closer to Pumpkin

Roll #0 6 = 6


Any shadows of Shadow around?

"I'm not going to stand here and watch my family get killed!"

Roll #0 7 = 7


Also, power attack that guy. Fuck him. I've been doing nothing long enough.

Roll #0 6 = 6


And he got kinda slashes in the face as he turned.
"And now you're just making me mad."
"Trust us. It's for the best you don't mess with him."
Try interfering with the battle and all bets are off
"Lets put an end to this."
He activates Divine Punishment and Fervor
Because bosses can cheat like that.
They are standing by some more spy groups.
"Your funeral."
You smack one of the spies as another whistles, dropping a few more down from the trees
"Final warning. Stand down and we can watch this unfold. Nobody is going to die.
Or interfere, and we kill everyone."

Roll #1 5 + 1 = 6


Then I use Fervor too.
And Vanish, Backstab again.

Roll #0 4 + 2 = 6



Roll #1 4 = 4


"You are horrible monsters, making us watch our friends fight for their freedom, when you aren't going to give it to them anyway. You have no honor at at.." deathsong again at them, if I can't interfere I can at least make them feel rotten.

Roll #0 7 = 7


I glower at him
"I could pick you apart bony by bone with my telekinesis alone if I so pleased, you scrawny traitorous scum."


You sink your blade into his exposed back but nothing happens.
"Are you afraid of pain, child?"
He slashes out with his blade as a distraction, and follows with a sharp kick to the party parts
"Are you afraid of death?"
You can't even be heard over the dramatic background music
"We are just hired help. Spies."
"Just following orders ma'am. We're trying to help you by stopping you from making him mad."

Roll #1 4 + 1 = 5


Avoid that.
"Never was. Never will be. I have a mission. A reason. Pain is nothing!"

Roll #0 8 = 8


I walk next to Venia.
"What are you doing? Why aren't you helping Pumpkin?"

Paw at the ground with a hoof threateningly towards the enemies.


Also, escape artist. And he's helpless and with a -1 to raising back.
Of course he has EA too!


" apparently they are having a dual, and we can't interfere. " I reply more than a little irritated.


Divine Punishment. No auto helpless.
he is down to his last hit though.
"So do I. We are in no way different. You have no moral high ground.
Now fall and submit!"
He goes for a final four blade strike

Roll #1 7, 4, 10, 5 = 26


"We can't do anything. If we attack the bet is off. Pumpkin is dueling a lordblade right now…"
I kick up some dirt angrily
"And I get to sit here and watch like an old discarded rag…"


"But neither do you!"
I was waiting for this!
Vanish away from his strikes!

Roll #0 2 + 2 = 4


I take a breath.
"I would say one on one is an honorable fight, but they are Lordblades after all… but we won't let him get hurt."


"So for a mere pile of bits you ruin some pony's life? Does that make you feel complete? Dose your special somepony like that? Do they even know? Or..no, you are so busy betraying pony's that you can't stop to find one can you?" deathsong

Roll #0 2 = 2


"Just like your father."
He expected as much, turning to break your knife.
"Lets end this"
He slaps you
"Oh shut up you whiny cunt"

Roll #1 4 + 2 = 6


I pace around restlessly
"Damn Lordblades… If they so much as touch Songbird I'm going to turn every single pony in this forest inside out."


"Stop calling him… That!"
If that's enough to break one of my knives, use the second.
"Yeah. Let's."
Shatter. End this.

Roll #0 8 = 8


"Pumpkin had better win this thing. "


"They are not going to hurt any of our friends!"

Narrow my eyes.
"Slap her again and I'll rip off your leg!"
Word of Power

Roll #1 8 = 8



Roll #1 2 = 2


It is over.
He falls down, his suit torn and his body bleeding
"…I yield.
My lord… I've failed you…"
He reaches for his chest


NO! Take that bomb and throw it away!

Roll #0 7 = 7


You jab a blade into his chest and pop out the bomb, then toss it away.
Waymarker lies down and groans
"I'm an embarrassment to the order…"

The spies look at the field and shrug
"So much for that. You are free to go ladies. Sorry for the inconvenience and all."


what the.. run over to pumpkin now.


I shove him aside and go check on Valeriana!


Turn to the others.
Who's here?
Are Peaches, Valeriana and Fourtones allright?
Turn to the various spies.
"You from Ironfoe? This is an Equestrian lordblade. Tie him up."
contain happiness in seeing her.

Roll #0 9 = 9


Heal any of ours who's hurt.

Roll #1 6 = 6


"Don't worry me like that bro. You were pretty awesome out there, but still.. What a stupid plan!"


Fall over from exhaustion after Fervor wears out.
"Went better… Than expected.
I just wanted to buy some time."


She gets up. She took a few bad hits but the suit kept her safe for the most part.
Peaches is out cold.
Fourtones needs help.
Valeriana is being checked on by Venia.
A few spies rush over to tie up Waymarker
"And now I suppose you'll parade me to your king and kiss up to him for a medal or something, Swansong? Do you not see all you are doing is advocating more pain and war?"
You go help the king of thieves
"Thank you kindly sir. And believe me I don't say that easily to supporters of the crown"


Narrow my eyes.
"I'm not a sir. I am a mare."


Heal her anyway!
"Are you doing alright?"

Roll #0 1 = 1


"Hell of a face for a mare…"
He reaches into his coat and pulls out a small tube
…clearly not. I think I may have some internal damage."


Mend her! I can do this!

Roll #0 7 = 7


"We were not the ones who started this. We are not the who one day decided to march over the homes and lives of thousand of other ponies.
And what happens to you is no concern of mine.
One thing has me curious, thou.
What did you do to the wife of the golem carver?
Just killed her and burnt her body?"
Wait, out cold? I hope that doesn't mean out cold for good!
"NEED A MEDIC HERE!" Motion to her.


"its a measured amount of pain, not a spread out pain. We serve a greater good, a good for all ponies."


"Excuse me?!"
Try to keep calm.

Roll #1 5 = 5


"On it!"
Heal and/or Mend Peaches!

Roll #0 1 = 1


Spellbreak that!

Roll #0 4 = 4


She spits out some blood and groans as you magic her innards
"I'll live… thanks."
"She was related to a tertiary objective. But you are an idiot if you think I'll betray my order and tell you. You would not tell me either."
"Well it is."
He points the tube upwards and pulls the string on it, shooting a flare into the air
She isn't moving…



Roll #0 6 = 6


"Thank the Sun I have bigger deals than punching you now…"

Rush to Peaches!
Is she breathing?

Roll #1 6 = 6


"Look around. Life and death are nothing for us. Nothing. We can kill you, scrub your brain of every info, and then bring you back to life.
How do you like that?"

Peaches… Isn't moving?

Roll #0 10 = 10


"If you don't mind, I think we can use this chatter box to help peaches.." drag him over next to her and use touch of life to transfer some health to peaches.

Roll #0 3 = 3


She is breathing.
Some intensive care later she seems to be stable.
You might need to get her to doc though.


Flare up my wings.
"I can take her to Doc Doc. You others take care of the Lordblade. Is that good for you, Pumpkin?"


Is that his name, I honestly lost track, I meant the dick king of thieves, he was right next to me, and tied up to count as helpless, right?

Roll #0 3 = 3


Nod at her.
"Please, be careful."
Help place Peaches onto her hooves.

So. How did Waymaker take the threat?


Rush her to Doc Doc.

Roll #1 6 = 6


"Make haste!"

I get back to Shadow and help her up


Follow her to Valeriana.
"How are you feeling mother?"


The king of thieves is Fourtones. He has a son with a similar name.
Radiant helped him up earlier.
"You are every bit as vile as I was told. Honourless traitors who dabble in dark arts. Twisted and cruel, willing to go to any lengths to take what you in your blindness call your own.
Deep Rock was right about you.
And so was Equestria.
You need to be stopped. All of you…"
"I'll live…"
She is clearly hurt. Both her body and her pride.
"Ah, Radiant. Did you bring my vase?"


"No, I brought more job! We managed to keep her alive but she needs help!"

Place Peaches on whatever beds they have.


"Yeah, let's get you to Doc Doc straight away."

I pick her up and put her on my back, then carry her over back to Wintergrasp.

"Don't let that Lordblade escape Pumpkin!"


"Says the pony whose leaders ordered genocide.
You said it earlier. There is no moral high ground.
Only winners and losers, only blades.
I'm not above you, you are not above me."

To Valeriana.
Just hug her.

Roll #0 7 + 2 = 9


"He's pretty beaten. Nowhere to go, don't worry."


Well, things seem okay now.. I'll be back tomorrow.

Roll #0 7 = 7


You gotta leave? Allright, see ya tomorrow!


"Oh dear… what happened to her?"
"Genocide of the mad and power hungry.
I never took it as more than orders.
Now that I've seen and heard you, I know why those orders were given."
Valeriana looks at him
"Lady Valeriana…"
"Why does he want us?"
"It is not my place to ask. Only to obey."



"She got attacked!"


"You are entitled to your opinions. Now tell me, where is that mare?"
Word of Power.

Roll #0 10 = 10


"Oh dear. Well let's see…"
He examines the girl and does his best to fix the damage
"In Equestria. Safe, sound, and wealthy from producing the greatest weapons our Empire has ever seen. The Dragon Titans."

Roll #1 9 + 2 = 11


"The… Details. All and every possible detail."


That was Shadow I was carrying


"Well? How is she Doc?"


Double questing has me a little confused
She'll be fine. Just get her into bed and the worst she'll get is a sore head in the morning.
Now let's look at the other one
"HA! You'll see them in detail when they blast apart your cities. Go to Equestria if you so dearly want to see them first hoof right away."

Roll #1 7 + 2 = 9


"Just. Tell. Me. Where did you hide the mare? Which city, under which name, how strongly guarded?"
Fervor still up,
Word of Power.

Roll #0 4 = 4


Can I just take 6 on this one?


"Thank the Sun she'll be fine…"


"These damned Equestrians and their ways…"


"Go dive off that cliff you threw my friend Hailstone off of.
Why don't you in turn tell me what that mad king of yours is planning? We can share vital, traitorous secrets like buddies."
Valeriana is good enough to walk again
"Can we really blame them? Are we so much better?
…argh my guts feel twisted… I think I need sleep…"


"Did we send assasins to their lands?"


"Hmph, I barely even got to fight any of them!"
Has she been checked up by Doc Doc yet? If not, lead her there. If so, lead her to her tower.
"I don't like being powerless…"


"After you vile Empress, I will. I will dive down that cliff with a knife plunged into her neck and follow her until I see the life come out of her eyes.
Now I will ask you once again. Where in Equestria is she, what's her name and how closely is she guarded?"

Roll #1 8 = 8


"We lack the capacity… for now"
She got checked and healed
"Lordblades are a unique lot my friend… you can't always expect to fight them like normal foes"
"If you so desire to meet her and the princess, they are both in Canterlot. Go there and say hi to your father too while you're at it."
He tries to get up
You can tell from the sound a lot of SOMETHING is coming.

Roll #1 7 = 7


"I hate assasins, even if they are our own…"


Oh c'mon he was tied and there are hundreads of Ironfoe spies!
"Everyone! Attack the Lordblade!"
Vanish and backstab him again!

Roll #0 5 + 2 = 7


What the fuck, name?
Get her to her tower and tuck her in bed.
"So can you please explain what exactly happened? I'm confused about a few things…"


"He had been appointed Spymaster after I left Ironfoe… but was working in the name of Equestria.
…and his highest priority orders were to return me to Ilistar."
He just wanted to talk while standing and not laying in the dirt
You drop him like a sack of potatoes
"Argh… guess I'll just lie down then… bastard."


I groan
"Oh no…."


"Why would they want you?"


>You can tell from the sound a lot of SOMETHING is coming.
This had me really scared for a moment.
"Forgive me if I still don't trust you.
But I know I would keep trying, even under those restrains."
Take his head off the ground.
"What you know, I'm actually sorry for this. Now, where you saying?"


"He did not say. Also, I think he thought Pumpkin was my… other child. So he accepted a duel."
"I'm done betraying my faith and order to you. Son of my Lord or not."
The sound was the Thieves. They were waiting for Fourtones' signal.


"Pumpkin did good at least."


"I did never ask for any special treatment. I wasn't giving you one either. I have loved ones I want to save.
Ponies so close to me you couldn't believe. Please, I actually feel bad about having to do this.
I can't wait for the moment when I'll be able to walk back into my room, forget everything I did, and lose myself into the hooves of my loved one.
But for this to last more than a mere few, fake moments, I need you to help me.
We don't want to destroy Equestria. We don't want ponies to suffer.
Look, can you see them? Those are the lowest possible ponies of our kingdom, the very last ones.
We are helping them. Giving them all a second chance. Helping the commoneers on the street, because nopony should suffer.
For the dream we have to endure, we must protect ourselves.
Help us. Tell us where she is. Please."
Word of Power.

Roll #0 2 = 2


I sigh
"Well… we should probably leave you to sleep and rest for a while… I'm glad you're okay Valeriana."

"Let's go check on Frostmourn, shall we? You go ahead, I'll be right behind you."


Can I try it with a little more sentiment?

Roll #0 8 = 8


I nod.

Go check on Frosty.


"Sleep would be good… yeah.
…I need to check how many shadows I lost…"
"The golem crafter is living a lavish life in the high towers of Canterlot. As I said. She works for us now.
And it is not you we fear. It is your king. And his heir. And his heir. And so on. If we allow another empire to form - an empire to rival our own - we are setting up a time bomb. Your king might not snap. But ultimately there will be a weak link. A bad seed. A moment of madness.
And then the world will burn in the fires of a cataclysmic war as two empires collide with full force.
No. Better a few ponies die in their beds than that millions march to the fronts to die in a war they never asked for."
He is in the throne room. The assassins have been taken away.


Nod at him.
"King Frostmourne. Pumpkin got the Lordblade. We've got some injuries but no casualties."


"You need to rest Valeriana, the doctor said so. Do me a favor and sleep now, alright?"
I kiss her on the forehead and take my leave, after Radiant.


Sit down beside him.
"I can understand this.
But it's in my blood. In my flesh. I will not go down quietly because in the future, something might happen.
I have faith in my heirs, and their heirs and so on.
They'll find a solution."
Stand up.
"For what it's worth, I'm sorry we ended up beign enemies."

Walk over to Fourtones.
"You allright? Kind of your ponies to show up for the afterparty."


"All in all commendable work on Pumpkins part."


"Good. Very good. I only hope not too much damage was done."
"Ponies are too weak for such responsibility. Someone will want war. For power. For money. To compensate for his inability to sire a heir. I care not why.
I can only trust the princesses. For they are eternal and immortal, as well as in tune with Harmony. They and they alone can protect us forever."
Fourtones leans on his cane
"I tried to fire the flare earlier but went down. You could have grabbed it off me but you were busy fighting some damn duel.
Heh. Good job though. You held up like a true fighter."


"They will manage. Nothi- oh damn. Excuse me for a moment."

Quickly, go back to the assasin I tied up earlier, I almost left him in the forest.


"I think not. I hope not. Are you alright Frostmourn?"


"Would have helped if I had known about such a thing as that flare of yours. Got spares?"
Make my way back to the castle, see to it Waymaker ends up in the dungeon, well guarded but well provided for.
Then, find Peaches.


"Just a bit shaken. I was hoping I would not need to fight until my project is ready."
You find him by a campfire he made
"Hey again."
"A few. Here."
He gives you a pair of flares.
Waymarker is placed in high security holding. As an additional measure, one of the shadows will guard him.
Peaches is sleeping. Bearing is there too, looking over her.


"I didn't expect to find you here…"
How bad am I looking?
Even thou the fact I can walk and talk is a point in my favor.

Roll #0 10 = 10


"Good. I'm glad I was around to help."
I start back off slowly
"I wont keep you any longer though, I'm sure you'll be quite busy with the aftermath of all this."


"H-Hey! You got out of the ropes! You are still under arrest!"


You look fine. The blood just makes you sexier.
"I heard she got hurt so I thought I'd check in on her…"
"Yeah I know. But I was cold. Care for a corn cob? I have a few spare."
"Somewhat. I'm glad the major battle took place outside the castle though."


"Are you trying to bribe me?!"


"No. I just thought you might be hungry. I know I am."
He keeps munching on his corn


"News travel fast, uh?"
Slowly move close to her.
"Anything happened to you?"
Go for a kiss.

Roll #0 1 + 2 = 3


"Yes, collateral damage could have been troublesome. But seriously Frostmourn, I'll leave you be now."


Roll my eyes.
"As soon as you are done eating you are coming with me. I'm taking you back to be judged by the King."


You slip and end up kissing Peaches
"H-hey! Pumpkin!
…I'm fine…"
"Take care old friend. Take care."
"So that's a no then?
Too bad. It came out really well. Feel free to sit down anyway. I won't be long."


"Yes, that's a no."

Sit down across him. Keep watching for any suspicious movements.



Let's go check on Sunrise, it's been a long damn time since I've done that


"Damn that really was not what I was going for- Must have taken an harder hit on the head than I thought."
Roll not to like that kiss.
Then, go to my real love.

Roll #0 2 + 2 = 4

Roll #1 4 = 4


He's just enjoying his corn.
After a while he packs up the rest of the cobs
"Yeah, we can go now."
She is in her room. A few guards walk past as you arrive. They were probably keeping her secure.
"Venia! Long time no see! How'ya been?"
You did like it.
Indeed you may have secretly wanted that for a long time.
And indeed your wife tastes a little dull in comparison
"Hm. So it seems dear. You seem a little stiff and distracted. C'mon. Lets lose the gear and get you washed up~"


Yeah no. Sleep horsebrain, we'll talk tomorrow.
Stop Bearing.
"I have to make sure everypony is fine first… I'll see you on a few hours, allright?"
Parting kiss.

Roll #0 8 + 2 = 10


Then, find Frosty.


"…alright. Look stay safe out there"
He is in the throne room.
"I see there was trouble."


Point towards the castle/keep/wherever the dungeon is.

"Move it, in front of me. I'm not letting you out of my sight or get away."


I make a small bow
"Queen Sunrise. It has been a while. I've been getting caught up in so many things I haven't really gotten the chance to talk to you. And don't you worry about this little incident, it's been taken care of without too much bloodshed."


"Waymaker. He had slipped a large amount of Ironfoe spies into wintergrasp using his position as Spymaster, secretely doing Equestria's biddings.
And to this point, there's one more thing. You remember the golem carver? I know where his wife is. And it's worse than you can imagine."


"Good, good. I was scared for a moment there. I've never had to use my magic in battle before."
"Liquidy Mint? Well, where is she?"



"In Canterlot. Rich, cared for.
Building Equestria's superweapon, Dragon Titans."


I give her a look
"You… haven't? Not even practiced against anypony?"


"Sure, sure.
You should talk to the leader of your blades though. I think he might have some input on this."
You get him to the palace.
"Dragon Titans? Some kind of golems I take it?"
"Well not really… just dummies."


"What? What are you-… nevermind, you can talk to the King."

Lead him to Frostmourne.
Once there tell him I got the assasin who wanted to slip away.


"Awww, Sunrise! You need to be able to stand up for yourself in a fight! I had my first magic battle against my father before I even got my cutie mark!"


"She was the necromancer expert, Frosty.
My guess is undead dragons. Huge undead dragons kept alive by a mix of necromancy and golem craft.
And by the 'titan' name, I'd say you can fit a castle or more on top of it."
"Lady Radiant."
Give her a bow.


Nod back.
"Pumpkin. You've put up a good fight back there."


"All thanks to your training, Lady Radiant. Faith kept me strong."


The assassin bows
"I'm with the Ironfoe Order of Spies. Just doing my job."
The king waves at him dismissively
"And your job was to kill me. I see no reason not to execute you."
"Well, you could always give me a new job."
"Radiant get him out of my sight. Pumpkin can deal with him."
"You're also a unicorn and a mage."
"Incredible… I wish to speak to this Waymarker. I want to know more."


"That's good to hear. Now, do we throw him in the dungeon? I think he could get out fairly easily."


"I know sweetie, but I'm just saying you really ought to put that magic of yours to the test in a battle."


"I require to escort you, mylord. I won't leave you alone against him."

Also, is one of my daggers broken or are they both whole?

Look at the spy.
"You were working for Equestria, how is that for espionage?"


"Not to disrespect you, but all the spies are going to be integrated into the Northblades. As the hundread of others who were helping Waymaker."


"Double agents? Those are the least trustworthy of all of them."


"It sounds kinda scary…"
"I leave that call to my own spymaster here."
The dagger is broken.
"I just take orders sir. I get paid for it. As far as any of us knew, Waymarker was Ironfoe blood through and through. He was a good guy to us. We never questioned him. But do note none of us came to stab you in the back either after he said he was Equestrian."
"Sounds good to me boss."


"Sunrise, I don't intend to go all out on you, so don't worry about getting hurt. Now tell me, which spells have you mastered so far?"


"Indeed. I don't blame any one of you. And I will need all of you.
Regroup with your brothers. I'll have a talk with all of you tomorrow."
"They are not double agents. It's just what's expected of them."

Turn to Frosty.
"Ready to go?"


"…I still don't trust them…"


"And you haven't seen the thieves!"


"Well… I did end up forsaking studies on winking, but I made up for it by putting some more time into mastering the Ice Sphere and Magic Orb. And well, magic bolts, but you already saw me use those."
"Will do sir. Care for some corn before I go?"
He pulls out a corn cob
Frostmourn nods
"I'm ready when you are."


"Can't eat in front of the King, that would just be rude of me. Carry on."

Nod at frosty.
"Care to join us in the dungeon? Waymaker is there."


I nod
"Good, glad to hear you've been making progress like that. I've been learning several new spells myself, so how about we go to the training grounds together? Just like old times?"


"Of course I do. Lead the way."


The assassin shrugs and offers the corn to the king instead, who smiles and takes it, then starts eating
"Mm. Warm~"
"I guess… yeah. Let's do it!"


"Frosty, there's a reason colts don't take food from strangers.
The rule works with kings too…"

Shall we go?


"What? I like corn."

Waymarker is chained to a wall, unable to move.
A shadow is watching him, sword drawn
"Swansong. Did you come for more empty apologies or simply to gloat?"


"Me and Lady Radiant are here just to watch over the High King. No more words from me. Not for you."


Lead her along to the training grounds, activating Protective Bubble when I get there.
"Now. Let's do a test of power first, okay? This right here is a shield spell I learned from my mother. It's able to take on a lot of punishment before collapsing, so why don't you start out with that Magic Orb of yours?"

Roll #0 7 = 7


"I don't have any words for scum like you."


"You wound me, Lady Radiant. He's just like me, after all.
Just a bit less skilled with a blade."


"At least I know you have a trace of honor in you."


"Well ok… here comes!"
"I'll try to live without them."
"Well I can tell you're a bodyguard. You certainly aren't a scholar or concubine."
"Don't get a big head Swansong. Nonlethal combat is not where I shine."

The king then steps up to him
"Tell me about these… Dragon Titans."
"I did not expect it to be that easy. Lordblades are well trained."
"Yours certainly left a lot to be desired."
"Hm. Perhaps. Now tell me, is there anything I could offer to perhaps make you change your mind?"
"Why yes. Yes there is."
"Do tell"
"Surrender to Equestria."

Roll #1 9 = 9


"Oh why, I'm sure he too has a lot of honor, towards Equestria."
"Honor you'll set aside for a moment, as you tell us everything about dragon titans."
Word of Power.



Roll #0 1 = 1


"Feeling snarky, are we? Those sort of comments won't make your position any better, snake."


Oh c'mon.

Roll #0 10 = 10


"You will forgive me if I do what I can to amuse myself. Not like I have much else to do, now that I've been forced to betray my faith, home, order and family."
"And I suppose if I don't you'll just rip my soul out and torture it until it screams answers to you?"


"Again! Come on!"

Conjure myself a set of frost armor. '1d10'

Roll #1 3 = 3


"I would prefer not. Neither my mother nor my friend deserve such a terrible job. I'd love to finish this here and now."


"Shouldn't have picked with the wrong opponent it seems."


That's more like some nice lacy underwear made of ice than armour…
"Uh… ok! Another!"
He smirks
"You really have no souls, do you? Do you even understand what you ask of me? Do you have any idea what the consequences are for the WORLD if I tell you the process of making Dragon Titans?"

Roll #1 4 = 4


I meant to do that! Now get me an actual set of armor!


"You think you're going to scare anypony with that, Sunrise? Give me a Magic Bolt!"

Roll #1 3 = 3


"We learn how to break them down. And then, your invasion force will lose one of its main assets.
Thousand of your young soldiers unable to move from home.
Hundreads of or cities saved from destruction from the above, colts on the streets that will have parents for one more day.
That's what happens."


"Do tell. What's the worst that could happen?"


You add some saucy bridles to it.
"…Venia that armour is a bit… uh… well ok!"
"You won't break them. You will make your own. You will march them across the lands, laying waste to everything before you in your endless madness. If I speak now, and tell the secrets of those weapons, I sign the death sentences of millions of ponies at the hands of the first one in these forsaken lands who gets a big head and feels the need to show off to their neighbor king.
I cannot take that burden. I. CAN. NOT. TAKE. IT.
I refuse to go down in history as the pony who could have ensured peace in the world, but instead chose to doom us all!"

Roll #1 8 = 8


"Frosty, remind him what you think of necromancy…"


"And what guarantees that your so called Princesses won't do the same?"


"I'm just experimenting!"
Dammit! Try one more time! Frost armor go! '1d10'

I should have one more hit left on my shield.
"Now, let's see if you can still hit me if I shoot back!" Use my own Magic Bolt, but just shoot at the ground around her to scare her a little 'r2 1d10'.

Roll #1 10 = 10 / Roll #2 9 = 9


"Perhaps later."
"They are immortal, virtuous and chosen by Harmony. They are the very balance point of the universe, unbreakable and incorruptible."
She whistles a bit at your cool new digs.
And then eeps at the bolts dancing around her
"Hey! Distractions or not I can still manage!"

Roll #1 4 - 1 = 3


No. No she can't.
"Ah crap…"


"Or that is what you've been lead to believe."


I chuckle and drop the shield.
"Show me some of those frost spells. I'm guessing those are your favorites? Don't be afraid to hurt me, this armor will keep me more than safe."


"Nothing, not even a god, is free of corruption.
You are just hoping that two simple ponies will be enough to hold together an empire.
Two ponies that have lived for thousand of years.
I would not count on their mental sanity.
After all, everypony needs rest."
Give him a silent stare.
"Now, tell us."

Roll #0 8 = 8

Give him a silent stare.
"Now, tell us."

Roll #0 9 = 9


Let's use this 9+Fervor roll for the next WoP I'll use against Waymaker, okay?


"Well they do feel most at home to me, what with being from around here and all. Ok, lets try an Ice Sphere!"
"The blood will be on your graves for this.
May history never forgive you if you abuse this knowledge.
…the Dragon Titans are golems based around the skeletons of ancient dragons. Using the bones as a core structure, the golem itself is closer to an amalgamation of hundreds of smaller ones, each with individual cores, piloted by a team of ponies giving commands to the separate areas of the titan. It is strong enough to house hundreds of troops and the largest weapon systems the world has to offer.
And yet even it pales in comparison to the capital ship Wrath of Heavens. But I need not worry about you replicating that. For it is a castle built atop a living ancient dragon, piloted by a very special pony with a talent towards taming dragons, and armed with a conduit for focusing the power of Harmony itself. At least I can take solace in knowing you will never have any of the three."

Roll #1 1 = 1


And then Queen Sunrise was frozen stiff.


"… you're kidding me."

Create a cape of fire and put it around her '1d10'
Also Heal '1d10'

Roll #1 2 = 2


Sit down.
"That's horrible. Unleashing such a weapon on the world…
No matter what divine force you believe to serve, it's just wrong."
Breathe in heavily.
"Might the Moon have mercy of us all."


'r2 1d10' / Roll #2 5 = 5


I huff.
"And you claim that we want to watch the world burn, yet your nation is the one with such an instrument of destruction."


Good. Now she's frozen stiff on the inside AND on fire on the outside.
"It is a weapon to bring peace. Alone it is so powerful no kingdom would dare stand against it. It is a deterrent. What madpony would go to war against such overwhelming power?
…but if two sides each had one… then it would actually need to he used for battle. And as a result… millions would die.
Do you now see my point? Why Equestria chose to weaken any who would try to form empires against it? Why we cannot allow the north to be united?
Only in unity can there be eternal peace.
And the more powerful the nation that stands against us, the higher the price of unity becomes.
…we are not evil. We simply wish to avert pointless bloodshed."


Put it out! '1d10'
And Heal 'r2 1d10'

I sigh and carry her back inside the palace and place her at a fire place.

Roll #1 4 = 4 / Roll #2 5 = 5


Can I just take 6 here or something before she gets horribly maimed?


"You are all insane. Your princesses are insane.
Every. Single. Pony that believes such bullshit is insane!"
Turn to Frosty.
"We done here?"


Yeah ok fine.
She eventually thaws out, a little singed
"I think my freeze backfired a little…"


"Then why not propose peace? Why assasinate?"


I chuckle
"Looks that way. Believe me, I've had similar things happen to me when using cryomancy in the past."
I pat her on the back
"Don't you worry about it. We can do this some other time if you wish."


"Are we insane for creating lasting peace?
Are we truly?"
The king nods
"Yes. We are done here. Do with him as you please, Pumpkin."
He leaves for the library
"What point is there in that? We've tried peace offers. Those who resist us will only incite more war. Those who accept us will not be targeted to begin with."


"…why is my coat singed?"


"Is it truly peace if you are enslaving others? Or is that simply your justification?"


"Verne will take care of him."
Turn to Radiant
"If you excuse myself, I have to visit Valeriana now. I still haven't talked with her since this all happened."

Find Valeriana.


I smile sheepishly, rubbing the back of my neck
"Uh… that's my fault really… Sorry about that."


"Oh, no worries. I was just wondering I cast something fire based accidentally. I can get it fixed later.
So uh… care for one more round or should we just go eat something?"
She is trying to sleep the worst of the pain away in her tower, but you can tell she isn't really getting any good rest.
"We are just rulers. Not slavers. Not tyrants. But you will keep calling us that to justify your own blindness."


"May I?"


"Ngrgh…. hey dear… just… trying to rest a little. I tend to forget the suit was only designed to block blades, nothing more…"


"Your choice."


"Oh, so just because you have a stronger army and some Princesses makes you right and us blind?"


"They got a few good punches on you?"
Move closer and sit beside her.
"What you make of this? Of Ilistar, wanting you so much?"


"Ok. One more. Show me a strong attack spell."
"In the end… Luna and Celestia have proven themselves the purest. They wield the Elements of Harmony. The symbols of true balance in this world. They are the chosen ones. Eternal. Immortal. Incorruptible. Unbreakable.
…I can trust them. Unlike mortal kings."
"I can only thing of two possibilities
Either he wants me dead…
…or he wants me back."


"I don't know. That 'don't kill her' stuff seemed pretty serious.
And he does want his son back.
Maybe he misses you."


"Oh, I have to show one to you? Alright then."
Get back to the training grounds, take aim and use an electric Storm Bolt on one of the dummies. Five times '1d10+2'

Roll #1 7 + 2 = 9


Does one of those names ring a bell?

"If they are immortal, how can you be so sure they are even ponies? How can you be sure of their motives?"

Roll #1 6 = 6


She buries her head in a pillow
"…If that's true… I can't deny it's mutual…"
"I have faith in harmony. It is the true sign of balance. The one absolute of the universe.
And if they are not ponies… all the better. Ponies are weak. Fragile. Prone to madness…"
It does for some reason
You blast the fuck out of it.
She looks deeply impressed
"Your lightning was always really impressive Venia."


"Tell me about him."


"Well, it is my talent after all! I've always been so fascinated by it… When I was a filly and there was a thunderstorm going on outside and me and my parents would take shelter in a cave or in our tents I couldn't help but gaze outside every time. It's just so… beautiful and powerful."


"Maybe they are just toying with you! Using you and..e-excuse me…uh…"

Come on Radiant, what's wrong?


"What is there left to say that I have not already said?
Aside from his work… I cannot really fault him for much."
"Bah. You have no idea what you speak of. Those who have felt them will forever be touched by their radiance. It is beyond your understanding."
"A rare force of nature, but all the more powerful for it.
…does it not lose any of its mystique and majesty now that you can summon it at will?"


Try to collect my thoughs. Either ignore it or try to think what was that.

"If they are so benevolent and friendly why don't they come and show themselves isntead of sending petty assasins?"

Roll #1 7 = 7


"You can't stop loving him, can you?"
"Could we… Could we ever.. Could you, ever convince him? Convince him to join us?"


I shrug
"I've grown accustomed to it, true. But that doesn't mean that the loud crackle of a lightning spell has ceased to bring a smile on my lips every time I hear it."


"They are still only two physical beings. They tend to rising the sun and moon every day, and safeguard our hopes and dreams every passing moment.
There are only so many places they can go at once."
"As easily as I could convince the sun to grow cold or the snow to burst into flames…
He was the first in Equestria to become a lordblade. His devotion to his lords is absolute, I fear…
…then, I never had time to ask.."


"I bet. Must be one of the most satisfying sounds in the world."


"This… This war. A war that isn't even started yet, and it's killing us from the inside already."
Go over there. Hug her.
"I cannot say what I will do when that moment happen mom. Please. Just remember… I love you, allright?"

Roll #0 8 + 2 = 10


so did that 7 manage anything.

"It's been years of conflict, I'm sure they could have found a spare week of their time to settle it without bad intentions if they wanted to."


I nod.
"No question about that."
I let out a happy sigh, reminiscing about the past for a moment.
"Say… Mother left me behind some books on magic, one of them that taught me about her shield spells. I've finished reading it already, and I don't exactly have any kids on my own right now so… if you want you can have them to learn from. They are quite interesting and they're just collecting dust at the moment, which is a bit of a shame."


How should I know? I thought you were rolling on what you were going to do about your minor memory gain
"You really don't understand, do you? The kingdom of Equesria spans from the edges of the Trotantine empire to the Snowborder. It is so massive, they say the sun never sets upon it. Not a second passes without something needing attention there. And even our princesses, in their divine perfection, can only get so far. Even with legions of aides."
"Such is the power of the lordblades… to kill the body… the mind… and the heart."
You are a very cute pony with those pony hugs.
"I'd love to! That way I can be even more useful to Frosty!"
She seems really happy about this idea
"Oh Venia this is the second best thing I could ever ask from you!"


I cock an eyebrow smilingly
"The second best thing?"


She's a very comfy pony. Keep the hug up.
"Let's talk.. Hypotetically. Can we… Would he even… You know, accept me?"


She blushes a little
"…well I…
…you know.
It is kinda famous…"
"…you saw what happened today. Even Waymarker thought you were his son…"


"… you're kidding me."


"Then maybe they are not as powerful as you claim they are…"


"I don't know how to feel about it yet."
Give a short, almost desperate sigh.
"And this was a stupid thing to even hypotetically think about."
Keep close to her.
"I'm thinking wrong things. Very wrong things."


"Yeah I kinda am.
I don't think that many ponies know about it outside the palace."
"They may not be everywhere at once… but where they are, none question their might.
…can you please let me down? These chains are terribly uncomfortable, and I'm getting hungry."


"Hah, do you take me for a fool? I'm not letting you go. I know your kind too well."


I blush bright red again
"Oh that sure is a damn relief. Who the heck even spread this rumor? I can't believe Anvil would do that to me!"


"I'm… trying not to imagine his face. He had such kind eyes. Cold, but kind. I can't imagine them in tears over seeing his lost child…"
"Would you prefer to feed me then? I'd simply rather eat myself. Where do I have left to go? You've stood there and forced me to betray everything I held holy. As a paladin to another - you are in no position to call yourself holier than me."
"Well it's not really a rumor so much as it's anyone who is in any nearby room when you do it.
…he isn't the most quest guy.
Though I do think he told Frosty. Who got a little jealous."


"Once a Lorblade, always a snake. The moment I would undo your clutches you would either try to strike me down of flee back to your precious Princesses. And if you truly held it as holy as you claim, you would have never betrayed it."


"Stop it. I'm not that child. It'd just be a lie.
And he's the same pony that is now trying to kill everyone I've ever loved. He's the pony that will take you away from me…"


I groan
"Well I sure am happy everypony knows what I'm good at… Why did you bring this up again?"


"I know your kind and nation. I've seen what you did to my friend Hailstone. I know there was nothing left for me the moment I failed to stop you from taking me. My soul and flesh will be just another puppet for your black arts to be drained and cast aside like a rag. If I don't starve first."
"You may not be his by blood… but… you are my child. And you were raised in his hoofsteps…
…you are more his than some child who never knew either of us, and whose only connection to us is a passing similarity in looks…"
"Because you asked?"


"Look I shouldn't… You, you shouldn't really be thinking about this in the first place.
I won't let you go, you hear me?"


"Because you said something about the best thing I could give to you! I wasn't expecting you were talking about this!"


"Oh I heard about your friend all right. He was such a noble, taking the life of an innocent teenager and blowing up her mansion. Truly, the world will be a colder place with his departure, unless you want to take his place in killing young fillies."



No. I won't ask. I just…"
She pauses to calm down
"Lets just… live in the here and now for a while. Ok?"
"I was just being honest…"
"It is a line of work. You heft a hammer with intent to kill all the same as we carry a blade. We get our orders from our Lord. You from your king. The only difference is that we strike with are the scalpel to your sledgehammer. The clean slash to your crushing blow."


"And I strike to protect not to destroy."


Nudge closer to her and close my eyes.
"As long as we can afford it…"

Spend some time with her. Cutsy pony things and all that.
Have the Dagger repaired.
I really like my daggers.


I actually laugh slightly, albeit awkwardly
"Wait, so what are you asking? Advice on how to reach my level?"


"You are deaf as well as blind…
…or you simply refuse to look at the bigger picture.
I may need to kill one, or ten or twenty, indiscriminately and without warning.
But I do so to save millions more."
If you want it back into full function, take it to Narpa in Ironfoe.
"…yeah. I just wanna give Frosty a nice surprise. You know. Be a good wife to him. Well… future wife…"


How long does the travel to Ironfoe take? And since we are talking about this, how long would the travel to Rockeye take?


My awkward look turns to a worried one
"He's not been neglecting you, has he?"


"On an assumption that something bad might happen!"


Ironfoe is half a day away
Rockeye is several days away, and you must get through the hostile kingdom of Eaglecrest to get there.
"Nah. Not really. I just think out love life is becoming a little bland.
…and that has always been the one thing I was really bad at."
"The nature of ponies never changes…"


A whole day of travel to repair a dagger.
I'll do that later.
Or now if in one day nothing major will happen.
Also, if Peaches is fine, I should definitely take her with me.


"Not if you don't trust them."


"I… see. Well, I suppose I might as well help if you are keen on improving in that area. Sun knows it's not the awkwardest thing I've done this week."
Let's see if I can explain my super special finishing move to her properly '1d10'

Roll #1 1 = 1


You get sidetracked and go on an extensive tirade about the threesome after she gives you a puzzled look about 'not the awkwardest thing'.
At the end of it, she is blushing a lot, but does not know anything new about your incredible skills of pleasing the dick.
"So uh… about that… other thing?"
Really I just want to dump the lot of you into the Underkingdom…
"That's quite a load coming from one who only just said once a Lordblade, always a snake"


"You should trust the leader of your nation, not somepony who tried to murder your friends."


Put this dagger and its twin somewhere safe in my room, then go find Peaches.
"Anything happened in the last couple of hours?"


"Uh… right! Heh heh heh… that."
Okay, let's try that again shall we? Maybe even add that +2 bonus to it so I can explain the techniques I utilize even better. '1d10+2'

Roll #1 3 + 2 = 5


"In this case, those two are the same thing."
She is in your bed trying to sleep off the concussion
"Ngh… it hurts… nothing more."
"Don't use teeth? …that's it?"


"No, no, there's much more to it than that!"

Roll #1 6 + 2 = 8


"We weren't the agressors against you! Don't you dare play the victim here!"


I should really find her a room.
"Hurts when I do like this?"
Probe her with an hoof.
"You were pretty good out there. Not any day we fight a Lorbdlade and an hundread spies at once."


"O-oh! OH! huh… oh wow. That's… quite a lot to keep in mind.
But hey! Thanks! I'll at least give it a try!
…I never though you'd agree to it."
"I'm merely stating facts. I follow orders and place my faith in harmony."
"Ow… yeah I guess…
…sorry I couldn't help you more."


"Hey did plenty good. Thanks to you I got a couple lucky shots at him, that dagger throw at the end saved me, even.
So, anything you want? I gotta make it up to my battle-sister."


"I just hope you won't realize too late that you have placed your faith in the wrong hooves…"

Are there any jailors/servants around?


"A bag of ice…"
There are guards outside and a shadow by the wall


Well everything seems to have calmed down. Lets see if I can talk to Ironshod.

Roll #0 6 = 6


"You and I, we're not very different Sunrise. I enjoying helping you as much as I can, even if that means spilling things I would have rather have kept confined to my bedroom…"
I shrug
"Besides, apparently everypony in the palace was already aware of this skill of mine."


Do we have any ice in here?
I mean, it's a big room! A suit, even! They must have packed ice in here somewhere, no?

Roll #1 5 + 2 = 7


"Uh, hey, Shadow! Can you feed him? I don't trust him enough to let him go."


Seems so!
"Looks like we have just about everything here…"
Help her with the ice.


You can find him tomorrow. I'm out of energy…
"Nah. Not everypony. Me, Frosty, a few guards, Valeriana, Pumpkin and a couple of the servants. And anyone they may have told. More or less."
"Just… put it on my head."
The shadow looks at you as if to emphasize it is a demi-supernatural murder construct, not a nanny.


I'd love to explore her character, but I'm ded.
g'night dm.


night then


"A few gua-"
I groan and lie down on the floor
"Why Sun? Why?"

Off to bed





After helping out Peaches and making sure she'll be allright, make my way back to the dungeon.
"Still here? I hope you didn't let him sweet talk you."


"Of course not. He wanted me to release him so he can eat, but I don't trust him, he might escape or attack me."


"Ah! Yes, that would be the least. Then, he'd either go for the King or Valeriana, seeing as she's injured."
Turn back to the exit of the dungeon.
"I'm sure he'll be fine. Care for a walk?"


"Of course."
I follow Pumpkin.
"Have things between you and Valeriana improve?"


Raise a brown at her question.
"Impr- Yeah, kind of.
I'm slightly worried, but she's strong. I hope…
She's just a little shocked."
Move somewhere out of earshot from everypony.
"What do you make of his words?"


"I meant that concern about your life…but I guess we have more pressing matters at hoof."

Look back in the direction we came from.
"And I'm not sure. He didn't sound malevolent. What he said didn't sound like reharshed propaganda, it came from his heart. He either truly believes it, or has been seriously brainwashed."


"I can tell you one thing. I for one, truly believe in Frosty.
I see no reason why he wouldn't truly believe his princesses, however evil they might be."


"And that's the exact thing he is thinking about us."


"We are not the ones who plan to do scorched earth of our enemies."
Trace circles on the ground with one hoof.
"I just wanted to be left alone…"
Look back towards Radiant.
"Let's say we fight back. Build those machines. Does that make us as bad as them?"


"If a war erupts, the the blame will not be ours alone, but still, the blood of the ponies who will die in it will be as much on our hooves as on theirs.
Don't get me wrong, I am not saying that we should surrender to any tryant. Still, those things… I hope Frostmourne won't actually consider building them."


"I want to look the bastard who is taking us to this in the face. Spit on her, gut her and bleed her.
And while I do, I'll be singing happily.
A war march, this is what we need. To forget how many ponies will die, even just for a moment. To pretend we have a chance."


"I don't think gutting their leaders would do any good for our diplomacy. If they killed Frosty, what would you do? Seek vengence until either you or they are destroyed. Now imagine if the rest of Equestria thinks about them like this Lordblade does. You would do nothing but ensure the complete annihilation of everything and everypony you ever knew.

At least if we lose in a regular war, you and me will die on the fields, but the rest of this nation will be spared."


"There is really no way we can just convince them to return home, uh?
What would you do, if your god told you to attack somepony else?
I know I wouldn obey if Frosty did…"


I chuckle.
"If by some sort of miracle the Sun would give me an clear and undenyable sign somehow to attack somepony, I would only do so if the pony was bad. Even if the Sun itself would tell me to, I will not kill an innocent. I would know that it's not the real Sun if it asked me such thing.
But thankfully the Sun is too benevolent for that."


"Yeah, you'd make a terrible assassin."
Smile at her.
"You know, the moment almost calls for a song. Too bad I only know sad ones."


"Then why ruin the mood? Don't you know any happy ones? Or a song about the Sun? I'm not a singer myself either, so I'm no good at it…"


"Hey I could ask you the same thing.
Can't remember even a single song from your younger years?"


I give him a deadpan look.
"Yes, because I remember so much about my past."


"Hey never hurts trying.
Maybe when you hear the tune it'll come back to you."
Chuckle a bit, but move again to stare right in front of me, with a sly smile on my face.
"I will really miss our training, lady Radiant.
For one too many reasons."


Give him a confused look.
"Miss our training? As far as I know neither of us is dying or going anywhere. As long as I am here, I will keep training you about combat and the ways of the Sun."


"Lady Radiant I don't know if you've noticed, but I just took a lordblade on my own.
I'll have to start training the future Northblade recruits along with Valeriana.
I've also made a promise with Nylis, to help her with her bladework.
Time will be stretched real thin, when we put in there my family and the missions the king will give me.
Also, me and Bearing are planning on a baby…"


I nod and hum.
"Hmmm… I guess you are prepared then. I just hope that you will use my teachings for good. And I wish you good luck with Bearing too!"

I give him a honest smile.


"Thank you for everything, Lady Radiant.
The warriors of sunlight have a friend in the Northblades, remember it."
Give her a hug and then go back to my chamber.
I should really shower the blood off.

Roll #0 3 + 2 = 5


I can hug better than that.

Roll #0 8 + 2 = 10


That's some quality hug right there.

"Thank you. And you know too, if you have any problem, I am always here for you."
