Paladinquest - Thread 1 DM 316182

Chapter 1: Introductions.

The Canterlot Paladin Academy.
Founded by great ponies of faith, it now serves as the training grounds for Equestria's most faithful fighters.
Some start their path to becoming paladins at a very young age.
Others join in at a later point of their lives, looking to right past wrongs, seeking deeper meanings, or simply to better serve their homeland.

Today, a new batch of accepted recruits begin their journey.
Many eager young bodies have gathered in the academy courtyard, busily socializing, comparing histories and getting to know one another.

From a high tower, a few important figures watch them, silently exchanging glances.
Only time will tell if that they suspect is indeed true.


Walk around star struck and take sight of the place, the ponies, the beauty.
This is all I ever dreamt!
Look around!

Roll #0 3 = 3


Look around this pretty place. Anything amazing? Anything magical?

Roll #0 8 = 8

DM 316226

>Autoupdate in charge of working
A lot of ponies here.
Most of them seem busy though…
But the academy itself seems really vast. From here you can see the outer wall, what you assume is the main academy building, two dormitories and a training field.
There is an air of magic to this place, and you feel more attuned with your own soul just being here.


Sheepishly smile and to myself, knowing this is where all of the great Inquisitors in my family started out.

But why waste time taking a look at the sights? I've visited the campus once or twice before with the family. I need to go find friends! See if I can find any other newbies that look friendly.

Roll #0 4 = 4

Star Hopper [Cleric] 316235

A silly grin appears on my face
"Gosh, magic everywhere…"


Ohw… I was hoping for a friend… Let's go look around the place then! Where am I supposed to go, anyway? Can I remember that?

Roll #0 2 = 2

DM 316244

Something about war? Glory?
better ask these two

Well most are busy. Try these guys

Nock [Tracker] 316251

Pop up next to Star.

"Hey! Are you new, too?"

Papaver Field [Bard] 316253

Well look at there folks as awestruck as me it seems!
"Have you two seen this place? It's huge!"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 316254

I startle out of my mesmerized stupor
"Uh… yes."

"It sure is."
I look around awkwardly

Nock [Tracker] 316259

Give him the grin.

"It's not so big once you get used to it. My family's been coming to the academy for generations."

Papaver Field [Bard] 316262

"I… I've been told stories, but never seen something this majestic myself! I've lived all my life in the countryside."

Star Hopper [Cleric] 316272

"Oh, I'm from Canterlot myself."

"I really wanted to go to the mage academy first, but my parents insisted I'd come here instead."
I pause, tracing a hoof over the ground
"I sure do hope they'll have neat magic here too…"

Nock [Tracker] 316284

I'm a little disappointed. "So… you don't want to be a Paladin? But there's so much to be offered! We are Celestia's chosen! Or — we will be… some day, when we graduate."

Star Hopper [Cleric] 316290

"Well… I'm sure being a paladin is nice too. It's just more… holy stuff rather than magic stuff."

Nock [Tracker] 316296

Give her a big smile and inch closer.

"I bet you'll change your mind, soon! You'll find out that this is the best thing that ever happened to you! I promise you. Some day, you'll look back, and thank Celestia that you came here instead. You just don't see it yet!"

I glance around a bit. "Hey, weren't we supposed to be going to an introduction ceremony or something? Or do they not do that anymore here?"

Papaver Field [Bard] 316306

"Yeah he's right! This is the best thing! War, and honor, and glory! Having your stories told for generations!"

Nock [Tracker] 316317

She. We're all qt fillies. We are the Paladin Crusaders. We will never stop our journey.

I give her a smile. "Well, that's just a perk."

Star Hopper [Cleric] 316319

"Well… maybe. I just hope they have a big library."

"I just want to study magic though. I don't really want war."

DM 316321

When you are done being social, you may report in to the scribe at the Great Hall.

Nock [Tracker] 316327

Nudge Star a little.

"Come on! We have to go report. I'm sure the library is pretty big, though I haven't seen it myself!"

Papaver Field [Bard] 316331

"But imagine how much good your magic can do in war!"
"Wait, report? I'm actually kinda lost…"
Smile sheepisly and follow the two of them.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 316337

"Uh… right."
Follow her

Nock [Tracker] 316340

I proudly lead them through the campus to the Great Hall.

"I'm so excited! I've been waiting to be accepted as a recruit my entire life! And I'm finally old enough."

Papaver Field [Bard] 316355

"Yeah! My parents told me all about the heroes of old and how our family was made of great warriors and how you can find yourself in the batllefield, you know?
And about the light of Celestia and how it will always protect us an the good paladins do an-"

Stop talking all of a sudden and stare in awe at the Great Hall.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 316359

"That's nice."
Just keep following them, smiling awkwardly

DM 316368

The Scribe is taking names, cutie marks and past talents and deeds in his scrolls.
The line is quite long but your turns will come soon enough.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 316381

Wait patiently and look around
"So… do you ponies know how to fight then?"
I say this to the party without looking at them

DM 316387

Your turn.
"Name. Cutie mark. Former employment if any. Notable goals."

Papaver Field [Bard] 316395

Ready to swing my huge warhammer around, I stop just in time to see she gets called up.
Too bad.
Let's wait for this to be over.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 316403

"Uh… uh…"
I gulp, regaining my composure
"My name is Star Hopper. I uh… received cleric training. I'm good at healing and wish to learn more spells to help me with that. Or any spells, for that matter…"
I grin sheepishly at him

DM 316407

"Starhopper. Former cleric. Healing specialty. Magical training. Check."

Jonagold [M. Earth Pony Knight] 316408

I'll file into the end of the line. Hopefully no one notices my tardiness.

Papaver Field [Bard] 316414

Move up with a grin.
"Papaver Field, good at finding solutions in a pinch, just came out of my parent's home to do my part, sir!"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 316415

I quickly get out of line and wait for the others to be done. They seemed nice.

DM 316424

"Papaver Fields, improviser, green, no particular goals. Check."

Papaver Field [Bard] 316428

Well that was mean.
I move aside to rejoin Star Hopper with a slightly alienated expression on my face.
"That was fast."

Star Hopper [Cleric] 316430

"Well… there's a lot of ponies here today, they have to keep things short if everypony needs to get a turn right?"
I give her a helpful smile

Nock [Tracker] 316431

"Nock, daughter of Spell Seeker, son of Star Guided, son of Crescent Path. My cutie mark is the Waning Spark, a talent for snuffing out magic. I don't have official training, but I've been taught to handle a bow at my family's compound. And I will join the Holy Guard: not just a goal, it's my future."

DM 316439

"Nock. Antimage, add to Spellbreaker training. Well mannered. Determined. Check."

Papaver Field [Bard] 316440

"Yeah! Of course!
Snap out of it.
"That's winning strategy! Categorize everypony fast so they know our true values!"
Eh, why didn't I think of that?!
"Let's wait for our friend."

Jonagold [M. Earth Pony Knight] 316448

"Jonagold Apple, no formal training. Great-uncle was a knight once, and I thought I'd do his memory some honor by serving the Guard. I'm fair decent with the sword, and can take a hit, Sir."

Nock [Tracker] 316453

Trot alongside them happily. "Wow, it really was so fast! Is it official, I wonder? We're part of the academy, now? I can't believe it, it feels like a dream!"

Papaver Field [Bard] 316461

"You better do!"
Squee in excitement and giggle a little.
"By the way, I'm Papaver Field, but I guess you heard that already when I signed up by now."
Smile at her.

DM 316462

"Jonagold. Untrained, tough, seeks martial training. Check."
The line keeps moving.
You should go with the others to get out of the way.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 316469

"… I wonder what training will be like? Our teachers? Our dorms? So much new stuff…"

Papaver Field [Bard] 316474

"I wonder if we can sing in the dorms…"

Jonagold [M. Earth Pony Knight] 316476

I'll move off to the side, but not quite with the other three. They seem to have formed a group already, and intruding into ladytalk is rather rude.

Nock [Tracker] 316479

"Right! I'm Nock! Most of my family are Inquisitors. Honestly, I'm kind of relieved that you guys are new around here. Some ponies at the academy don't like Inquisitors… I was afraid ponies wouldn't like me without even giving me a chance."

Papaver Field [Bard] 316489

"What's a Inquisitor like? I never heard of them in songs."
Arc a brow.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 316494

"I'm Star Hopper, I live in Canterlot. My dad is a cleric, so I kind of followed that because I like magic."

Nock [Tracker] 316495

I shrug. "I don't know. Same as any other paladin? My parents always seemed pretty normal…"

Papaver Field [Bard] 316502

"So what can you do? I'm always been curious!"
"Makes sense. The songs tell about great heroes, not paladins or mages or clerics or inquisitors.
When you are a hero in war, it doesn't matter what your name was, you become an image!"

DM 316513

It seems there is a list of the day's activities posted on a nearby pillar

Star Hopper [Cleric] 316514

"Well like I said… I study magic. Healing magic mostly. I… I don't really spend much time with other ponies usually. I also like astronomy. I just love stargazing at night…"

Jonagold [M. Earth Pony Knight] 316517

I'll go check it out. Anything catch my interest? '1d10'

Roll #1 4 = 4

Nock [Tracker] 316518

Eagerly, I push my way through the crowd up to the list, dragging Star and Papaver with me.

"Come on, everypony! We've got to see what our schedules are!"

Papaver Field [Bard] 316521

"Hey that's cool. Great way to write songs, for one."
Follow her and look at the papers.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 316523

"… right."
Follow her

DM 316527

-Arrivals (Group 1)
-Signing in
-Introduction speech
-Dormitory assignment
-Free Time
-Lights Out]

Papaver Field [Bard] 316530

"Speech time! I love speeches!"

Jonagold [M. Earth Pony Knight] 316534

I'll nod, and step back from the list to give others a better view.
Are there any good places to sit while waiting? '1d10'

Roll #1 6 = 6

Star Hopper [Cleric] 316535

"Introduction speech?"

"… is this going to be about Celestian values again and stuff?"

Papaver Field [Bard] 316537

"I hope it's one of those motivational speeches they give before a battle!"

Nock [Tracker] 316543

"I bet it will be about the long future we have ahead of us! We're going to be the elites."

DM 316600

You go in to the hall early and nab a good seat
You join the others in the Great Hall to listen to the speakers.

First up is what looks like a councilor of sorts
"Welcome all. I will keep this brief for now, as I'm sure you're all eager to get to your dorms and to meet your new companions.
But first, our very own Battlemaster has agreed to say a few words on behalf of the faculty."
A large, rough looking pony steps up
"Good day all of you. My job is to make sure you will not flinch when you stare hell itself in the eye. To ensure when you march to battle the unholy legions, you will not even bat an eye. To make the horrors of war so mundane and dull to you you will YAWN as you cleave apart your foes! For believe me it takes more guts to turn back and run with me in the lines than it takes to kick Tirek himself in his thorny cock! DISMI-"
The councilor hurries to shoo him off the stage
"Well, thank you for that. Now you m-"
He falls silent, then quickly bows and backs away.
A third pony steps on stage. Gaunt, and dressed mostly in dark, well kept and highly ornate robes. His eyes are as pale as his coat, and his thin beard as ethereal as his complexion.
"I am the headmaster. I do not usually greet new students, but I feel there are some among you who I will be seeing again. Some, who have been touched. Marked. I will see to it that when the time comes, my hunches will be proven true or false. Keep that in mind you two."
He looks at the other speakers, then glances back at the students
"You will all serve well. I know you will. But some will serve better than others. And a few… far more than the others put together."
He leaves in silence.
After a moment the councilor finishes up
"Please report to the scribes at the exits for your dormitory keys."

Nock [Tracker] 316609

I shiver with excitement. "I don't think the headmaster has ever personally greeted a member of my family! I wonder if we're the special ones? I mean, it could happen, right?"

Jonagold [M. Earth Pony Knight] 316611

I'll shiver a bit. That headmaster gave me the willies.
I'll file out to the scribe to pick up my dorm key. Wonder where they're putting me?

Star Hopper [Cleric] 316613

I wince a little at the sight of the battlemaster

"I don't know… As long as I have my books and my telescope I'm happy."

Papaver Field [Bard] 316615

Squee and bump hooves give her a wide grin.
"We are going places! Our names will be sang far and wide all over Equestria!"
Give her a little nudge with one hoof.
"Hey don't forget about us. We gotta stick together now."
Let's head for the keys.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 316618

"I know, I know… I'm just not all that great at making friends…"

Papaver Field [Bard] 316620

Look at Nock, then back at her with a smile.
"I think that's taken care of already."

Nock [Tracker] 316628

"Yeah! We're gonna be the best paladins to ever come out of the academy!"

DM 316635

"Welcome to the academy. You will be staying in the Sword Dorm, on the east side. More commonly known as the stallion dorm."
"Welcome to the academy. You three will be staying in the Hammer Dorm, on the west side. More commonly known as the mare dorm."

Jonagold [M. Earth Pony Knight] 316641

"Thank you."
Taking the key, I'll hold it for a moment before asking which direction it is.

Nock [Tracker] 316644

I take my key and bound ahead. "Come on! I know the way!"

DM 316645

"East side of the grounds. So out that door on your left."

Star Hopper [Cleric] 316648

Look at her for a moment, then smile
"… I guess that's true."

Follow her

Jonagold [M. Earth Pony Knight] 316652

"Thank you. Again."
I'll head out through the east door. This is going to be the beginning of something interesting, I'll bet.

Papaver Field [Bard] 316662

Trot after her.
"How do you know this place so well?
Oh, dibs on the top bed."

Nock [Tracker] 316664

I give her a playful push with my hoof. "I told you! My family has been coming here generations. I've toured the campus before, of course."

Papaver Field [Bard] 316671

Give her am awestruck expression.
"I'm so jelly! What else have you seen?"

DM 316675



Nock [Tracker] 316679

"Some of the training grounds and important halls. The dorms, of course. Classrooms. Just wait, and you'll see better than I can describe!"

Playfully wag my tail a bit.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 316684

"I'll just take bottom bunk then."
I pause
"None of you snore, right?"
"Well, I'm glad you're excited."

DM 317551

Socializing continues as the fresh joiners check out their dorms.

Papaver Field [???] 317555

DORM! How is the dorm?

Star Hopper [Cleric] 317556

How's it look like?

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 317558

I'm assuming the keys have a room number on them? Let's find that room.

DM 317564

It's not too lavish. A four bed room, with a dresser, two tables, a few large closets and some lamps.
Looks like they expect the students to personalize the place themselves.
The window shows the training yard.
You find your room and check it out.
Two beds, two closets, two tables, two lamps. Easy to divide down the middle. Nice view of the training yard out of the window.

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 317567

I'm expecting a roommate, then. I'll settle on the bed on the right.

Nock [Tracker] 317568

"Do you think there will be anything to do in the dorms today? They said free time, but I'd like to do more than just unpack. Maybe we could walk the grounds if there's nothing to do! We could find that library."

Papaver Field [Mage] 317569

"One, two, three… Four beds! We might even meet somepony else!"
Trot over the beds. Are they bunk beds or normal beds?

Star Hopper [Cleric] 317571

No balcony? Aww…

Put my stuff on a bed

DM 317575

You could get used to sleeping here.
Normal ones. Seems they want to take good care of their students.
Your stuff is now on the bed.

Papaver Field [Mage] 317576

"Hey Star, do you want the bed by the window?"
Drop my warhammer and stuff here. Too bad I have nothing to use to paint this place. It could use some more war colors.

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 317577

Leaving my gear on the bed for the moment, I'll go get a look at the training yard from the window. Anyone out there? '1d10'

Roll #1 5 = 5

Star Hopper [Cleric] 317578


"That would be nice, thanks."

"I'm fine with the three of us, I don't want the place to get too crowded…"

DM 317579

Some of the other new students seem to be milling about, checking the area out.

Nock [Tracker] 317580

Drop off my bags and gear at a bed.

"So what now? Do you want to see the campus, or are you too tired from the trip?"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 317582

Well, I've got time until dinner, so I might as well do the same. Making sure I take my key, I'll head out and explore the rest of the dorm.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 317583

"I'd really like to see the library. But if you can do something else if you don't want to."

Papaver Field [Mage] 317584

"Ah! Not a chance! I want to explore, are you gonna show me around?"

Nock [Tracker] 317588

"Yeah, okay! It'll be an exploration mission! I haven't seen the library yet either, so I'm not sure where it is. We're sure to bump into some interesting stuff while we're out. Even if we can't find it right away, we're sure to stumble onto something good."

Head out into the campus looking around for anything interesting, or clues for a library.

DM 317589

You should soon run into your roommate.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 317591

Follow her eagerly

Sidus [Rogue] 317593

Okay, what is there to do?

Papaver Field [Mage] 317594

And into the campus they went.

DM 317598

You should probably check out your dorm after you were given a key for it by the scribes.
You locate a map of the academy.
marked on it are the locations of the
-Sword Dorm
-Hammer Dorm
-Training Fields
-Main Building
And under the main building
-Great hall
-Dining Hall
-Faculty rooms
-Headmaster's Office
-Councilor's Office

Papaver Field [Mage] 317599

"Hey there's the library! Wanna go there, Star?"
Point at it on the map.

Sidus [Rogue] 317600

Check my dorm!
Is it fitting for such a great pony as I?

Nock [Tracker] 317602

"A map! I kind of expected this to take more work."

Well, let's head to the library anyway.

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 317603

I'll head back towards the main hall.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 317604

I give them a goofy grin
"That'd be great! I can't wait to see what kind of knowledge is stored there… there must be thousands of interesting books on magic in a academy like this!"

DM 317607

Two of everything seems to be the theme. Bed, dresser, table, lamp. All split down the middle of the room with equal sides.
Looks like you have a roommate too >>317582
Oh look, that must be your roommate who just went past you. His key had the same number.
The library is on the second floor. The doors are heavy and there is a metal grid that can be locked in front of them.
Inside the Librarian asks if you need any help.

Sidus [Rogue] 317608

"Hey! You! are you my roommate?"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 317610

Oh gosh… How big is it?
"Uh… yes! Is there a section on magicky stuff?"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 317611

I'll glance at the numbered key he's got. Seeing that it matches, I'll answer.
"Seems so. Name's Jonagold; yours?"

Nock [Tracker] 317613

Playfully stick my tongue out. "Nerd."

Still, let's have a look around. Libraries usually have cool coats of arms and armor, right? Or at least stuff to break up the monotony of books. Any displays?

Papaver Field [Mage] 317614

"I bet they got a lot of old war chronicles!"
Look for the pony running this place! I can't into books.
Then, after Star speaks:
"Yes, and one of battle chronicles!"

Sidus [Rogue] 317615

"My name is Sidus, but not only a Sidus… I am the only and the best, The Sidus!"

Flash a pose!

DM 317616

From the looks of it, huge.
It is divided into multiple wings
"You must be one of the new students. Are you looking for the Divine Magic wing, the Arcane Magic Wing or the Elemental magic wing?"
A few weapons, shields and helmets have been stored here. The small plaques near them tell a little of their history.
"That'd be in the History section."

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 317618

"Uh-huh. Yours is the bed on the left. Nice meeting you."
And with that, I'll continue on to the main hall. There might be a map there that I can use to learn the layout of the place.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 317619

I give her a cross look
"Don't judge me…"

Clop my hooves together excitedly
"Divine! Divine!"

Papaver Field [Mage] 317620

Magic. Bah. That sounds stupid.
Turn to Star Hopper.
"I'll go look for some books, meet you at that big table there once you have yours!"

Off I go to look for chronicles of big heroes!

Roll #1 2 = 2

Sidus [Rogue] 317621

I walk after him.
"You're just going to walk away like that?"

Nock [Tracker] 317622

I'll show approval at this.

"That's the spirit! You're already acting more like a paladin."

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 317623


Sidus [Rogue] 317624

"Not even a bit of awe?"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 317625

"I'm sure someone thinks you're cute, but I don't 'awww' over colts."

Sidus [Rogue] 317627

I chuckle.
"At least you are funny, I like that! But not "aww", AWE! Didn't you feel my glory? Haven't you been touched by my destiny to be far greater than any God?"

DM 317628

"The divine magic section is the first in the magic wing from the door."
[The Tales of Grandeur VOL XVI: Sir Granfallos]
What luck! There is a map here!
marked on it are the locations of the
-Sword Dorm
-Hammer Dorm
-Training Fields
-Main Building
And under the main building
-Great hall
-Dining Hall
-Faculty rooms
-Headmaster's Office
-Councilor's Office


Vol 16th? No way I'm starting a story halfway through.
Look for something more… Paladin-ey! Something that could inspire me!

Roll #0 6 = 6

Nock [Tracker] 317630

Well, I'll skirt off to the divine section to give Star Hopper company. If one must practice magic, it should at least be Paladin magic, after all.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 317631

"Well… healing is my specialty after all…"

Run over there all giddy and look on books of healing!

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 317633

I'll take in the map. Try to remember where everything is.
I've got time to hit the training fields before dinner, right?

DM 317639

It's a series on big damn heroes.
You look for VOL I but it seems to be taken. VOL II is about a crusader called Lightstrike
There are several medical studies as well as magical studies here on the topic.
Sure you do.

Sidus [Rogue] 317641

Glance at the map as well.
"Come on! You must have felt something!"


Hm… maybe I can at least find a book on Spellbreaker here. My parents and teachers would want me to look into it, given my talent.

Roll #0 10 = 10

Papaver Field [Mage] 317645

Hey, can do. Walk to the table I told Star to meet me at and start reading.

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 317646

I'll head towards the training fields.
"I felt you were a silly pony."

Star Hopper [Cleric] 317647

Pick out several of them and start reading! '1d10'
I bite my lower lip with a big smile on my face
"This is like a dream…"

Roll #1 2 = 2

Nock [Tracker] 317650

Laugh a little. "See? It's not so bad."

Sidus [Rogue] 317651

"Silly? Oh no you did not just call me that…"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 317653

I'll shrug.

Sidus [Rogue] 317655

I poke him in the chest.
"Fight me then! You'll see how big I am!"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 317663

I'll raise an eyebrow.
"Don't know if the instructors would take kindly to me putting you in the clinic the first day."

Sidus [Rogue] 317665

I chuckle and rattle the chain of my kamas.
"You sure got some nerve. That might let you last longer than a few seconds."

Star Hopper [Cleric] 317667

I give her a uncertain look
"I don't think I'll be able to read books every day…"

Papaver Field [Mage] 317670

Since they are not coming, I go look for them.
"Hey found anything here?"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 317673

I'll snort dismissively.
"I'd rather not be called a bully for picking on somepony smaller than me."

Star Hopper [Cleric] 317675

"Yeah! Lot's of neat stuff in this section!"

Sidus [Rogue] 317678

"Okay, now you just want to pick a fight! Come on! Or are you afraid of my greatness?"

Nock [Tracker] 317679

"Books are books. Seen one, seen 'em all, right?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 317680

Wince at the sight of the impressive spellbooks.
"I'm sure I'd get a migraine trying to figure this stuff out.."
Chuckle a bit.
"Almost. I can never get enough of books telling epic tales of great paladins!"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 317683

"… no? Once I'm done with this section, I'll go over the other sections too!"
I pause for a moment, looking troubled
"I sure hope I'll have the free time for it though…"

DM 317684

You find a pile of books with a note attached
[Study material for Spellbreaker studies. Deliver to Arch Triumph]
[Lightstrike lived in the era following the North Wars. A pony of faith above all, he held no desire to tie himself to petty politics and swore to never fight under the banner of any king-]
You picked up way too much.
You can't even decide where to begin.

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 317688

I'll try not to roll my eyes. '1d10'
"Maybe there's an instructor on the training fields who will let us spar for a minute."

Roll #1 5 = 5

Star Hopper [Cleric] 317689

"Oh no… I've done it again…"
I frantically try to decide which books to keep for now and which to put back '1d10'

Roll #1 2 = 2

Star Hopper [Cleric] 317690

… and failing miserably.
"Uh… uh… Oh no…."

Nock [Tracker] 317691

A grin. "That wasn't so hard."

I'll take the pile of books. Hopefully it's not too tall! I don't want to spend all my time doing reading assignments this semester.

"Come on, Star, you gotta prioritize!"

I'll help her pick out just the important stuff for her skill level. '1d10'

Roll #1 5 = 5

Papaver Field [Mage] 317692

Oh, and what made him great?
"Need help there?" Cock my head at her.

Sidus [Rogue] 317693

"Hah! It won't be that long for me to defeat you!"

DM 317694

[-His deeds slowly became things of legend as his travels took him from town to town, city to city, nation to nation as he sought to right any and all wrongs he came across-]

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 317696

I'll just keep moving towards the training fields.
Any instructors around? '1d10'

Roll #1 6 = 6


"I… I…"
Just pick up whatever book is nearest and sheepishly walk over to the table to start reading

Roll #0 3 = 3

Papaver Field [Mage] 317699

Eh, what a life. I bet he had his name sung in every town. What was his most notable deed?
Pick up another book from her pile, just in case.

Roll #1 10 = 10

DM 317713

[-He was involved in several events that earned him many titles and nicknames. Among his most notable deeds were felling the dread witch, whose true name has been lost to time]
[The Great Medical Anatomy Compendium: By Dr. Teeth II]

Sidus [Rogue] 317715

I keep following him to the training grounds.

DM 317721

There are a few having a break.
"Hello there. Newcomers?"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 317722

I give her a grateful smile
"Thank you… I just got a little too excited there."
Take that book and read. Read for as long as I can

Star Hopper [Cleric] 317723

'1d10' to see how much I get done

Roll #1 9 = 9

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 317724

"Yes, sirs. Are there any rules against sparring on the first day?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 317725

"Whoa! Hey Nock, read here! This guy killed a witch all on his own!"

Sidus [Rogue] 317726

"Yeah! Jonagold here wants to be defeated by my greatness!"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 317729

I will make no effort to contain the rolling of my eyes at this.

DM 317730

This thing has fucking everything in it.
From detailed instructions on first aid to checklists on symptoms to identify diseases to anatomical charts for combat and field treatment purposes.
"Not many want to. Just make sure you keep it safe and clean.
You are aware of the other rules of the academy right?"

Sidus [Rogue] 317731


Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 317732

"Not as of yet, sir. Could I hear them?"

Nock [Tracker] 317733

I take a look.

"Not just any witch, Papaver. The dread witch. Not that I know who that pony was, but any time they call someone "the dread", they're pretty bad!"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 317734

Oh gosh, I love this thing~
Read it! All of it! Read until it's time to leave! '1d10' to not lose track of time

Roll #1 1 = 1

Papaver Field [Mage] 317736

Look at her a bit in awe at her dedication.
"You sure seem to love that book…"
"That's something I wanna do! Imagine, slayer of the dread dragon! Of the dreaded dead army! Of the dreaded and feared army of dead dragons!"

DM 317738

"You can find the full list posted on the Great Hall wall and by the Councilor's office.
But the short of it is as follows
-No sneaking outside after light out
-No intentional harming of others
-No entering off limits areas of the academy
-No disrespecting the faculty-"
He takes a look at you both
"-and no getting anyone knocked up. Got it?
There are more rules, but those seem to be the ones that most students have trouble remembering."
You have no idea what time it is. You do not care.
Unless someone snaps you out of it, you will be here until the guards throw you out at light out.

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 317741

I'll try not to blush at that last one. '1d10'
"That actually happens?"

Roll #1 3 = 3

Sidus [Rogue] 317744

I wave a hoof around.
"Those simple things won't be a problem for my greatness!"

Papaver Field [Mage] 317747

Okay give the book one last glance. How did he become such a great paladin anyway?

Nock [Tracker] 317749

"Well, we'll have to graduate first, I expect."

Glance over at Star.

"Hey Star… you alright? You can just check the book out if you want. Let's go back to our dorm."

Poke her a few times in the belly.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 317752

Does that break me out of my stupor? '1d10'

Roll #1 1 = 1

Papaver Field [Mage] 317756

"I think she's kinda gone.."
Slap her once.

Roll #1 2 = 2

Nock [Tracker] 317764

I'll save you, Star! Pull her tail! '1d10'

Roll #1 6 = 6

DM 317765

"Far too often. It's why we moved away from mixed dorms."
"Good. I like a confident attitude.
Try not to sound too cocky around the battlemaster though."
She is entirely lost to the passage of time.
…you might want to get help. This is not natural. This is something entirely different.

Sidus [Rogue] 317766

"Why, what's the worst that could happen, huh?"


"It's this damn book! Must be cursed!"
Pull Star Hopper on my back and trot over to the librarian.
"We need help!"

Roll #0 6 = 6

DM 317769

"He'll break your legs before making you run the obstacle course. If he's feeling nice."
"Hm? What seems to be the problem?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 317770

"She was reading a book and suddenly fell in trance! We can't snap her out!"

Sidus [Rogue] 317771

I chuckle.
"You imply that would be a challenge!"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 317772

"That's… huh."
Shaking my head, I'll go back to what we came here for.
"Are there any practice weapons we could use? I left my equipment in my room."

DM 317773

"Believe me, he will find a breaking point. He always does. He doesn't like to quit until he does.
I'm sure you'll like him."
She waves a hoof at her
"Hm indeed. What book was it?"
"Certainly. There are some in the armoury there at the back."


"Some… Magic stuff on healing and anatomy and the body!"
Drop the mare on the floor.
"Wait here!"
Run back and pick that book up, then come back to the librarian.

Roll #0 3 = 3

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 317776

"Thank you."
I'll go over and pick out a nice sword and shield.
"Hey, if you're so great, can you use these too?"

Sidus [Rogue] 317778

"I never quit either!"

"I can use anything! I can even let you pick a weapon for me!"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 317780

I'll toss him a lance. That should even up his shortness by giving him reach. Fair is fair, after all.

DM 317781

The Librarian looks very worried for a moment, then glances to her side and recoils back
The headmaster silently raises a hoof and steps to observe the entranced student
"Could it be…?"
He touches her softly, awakening her.
"…the mark…"
He turns around and leaves, deep in thought.
The librarian swallows
"S-sorry I'm not used to seeing him here. Oh! seems your friend is all better now!"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 317784

"Wh-whu? What? What's happening?"
Look around frantically

Sidus [Rogue] 317785

I catch the lance.

"I'll give you this one chance to back down and give up now and bow before my greatness!"


"What? What happened? Is she gonna be okay?"
Oh god I'm about to lose it!
Roll to keep calm like a real paladin would.

Roll #0 7 = 7

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 317789

"Best of three, then? Or best of five?"


"Thanks Celestia you are fine!"
Hug her with all my strenght.

Roll #0 2 = 2

Star Hopper [Cleric] 317793

"I don't understand… I was just reading that interesting book and… I don't remember…"
I shiver slightly
"This is weird."

Papaver Field [Mage] 317795

"You were gone! Completely out! Nothing we did couldbring you back!
The headmaster came by and saved you!"

Sidus [Rogue] 317796

"I'll let you choose that too!"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 317797

My eyes widen and I back off slightly
"The h-h-headmaster? Oh no… Am I in trouble now?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 317798

"Shut up silly! How could you be in trouble?"
Hug her again.

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 317800

"Best of three, then."
Moving to a sparring area, I'll ready my sword and shield.
"…perhaps we should ask one of the instructors to give the signal?"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 317801

I awkwardly hug her back
"I don't understand… what happened?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 317802

"I don't know!"
Shake a bit and let go of her, then turn to the Librarian for clues.

DM 317803

The librarian straightens her bun
"It is hard to say. But whatever it was, the Headmaster seemed intrigued."

Sidus [Rogue] 317804

I get ready with the lance.
"Or just come at me, if you dare!"

I lower the lance and grin.

Papaver Field [Mage] 317806

"We should ask him then!"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 317809

"You sure make up in volume what you don't have in size, don't you?"
How do you do PvP, DM? Just opposed rolls?

Star Hopper [Cleric] 317810

"… I don't like this."
I look back at the books I brought

"I don't think we should bother him though… I'll just go back to my room to read. A different book this time."

Papaver Field [Mage] 317811

"What if it's a rare alergy to books?! We must ask him!"

DM 317814

"You… can go ask his assistant about that. Top floor tower."
There are rules for that
Um… somewhere.
They are books. The books are not cursed. The Librarian would know if they were.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 317815

My expression is one of sheer terror
"O-oh no… That would be terrible! I-I…"

I pick up the books and rush back to our room

Papaver Field [Mage] 317817

Chase after her.
"Don't you wanna know what has happened? You heard the librarian, we have to go ask!"

DM 317818

You and the books are now back at the dorm

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 317820

Well, I don't quite know how to settle it otherwise, so that's what I'll roll with.
I guess I'll take the first swing, test out Sidus's defenses. '1d10'

Roll #1 1 = 1

Sidus [Rogue] 317822

Finally, some fun!

Try to dodge and Cleave his legs out of under him with my lance!

Roll #1 8 = 8

DM 317823

Star Hopper [Cleric] 317828

"But… but… I don't wanna! W-what if I'm not allowed to read books anymore?"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 317830

"Well, that's one."
Time to level the point count. '1d10'

Roll #1 1 = 1

Papaver Field [Mage] 317831

"That's silly! Then how would you study?"
Pull her hoof and tug her out of the room.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 317834

"Maybe they'll throw me out then! Because I can't study anymore! I wont be able to do anything!"
I start shaking in fear

Sidus [Rogue] 317837

Do a turn and try to hit him in the side!

Roll #1 4 = 4

Papaver Field [Mage] 317838

Roll my eyes.
"Don't be silly. No way they'd throw out somepony with your will to learn!
Now are you gonna cheer up or not?"

DM 317839

The Headmaster's Assistant is in the tower top floor if you want to go there.

Papaver Field [Mage] 317841

If Star Hopper has calmed down, yes.

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 317842

And that's two.
Sighing, I'll lower my sword and rub my side.
"Looks like you can back up your boasting."

Sidus [Rogue] 317844

"That wasn't boasting! That was the truth!"

I let out a laugh, fling the lance toward the armory casually.

"And that was weapon you chose!"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 317846

I sniff and wipe my nose
"Fine then… but will you stay with me? I'm kind of nervous to go see the headmaster…"

Papaver Field [Mage] 317849

Smile and nod strongly at her.
"We are doing this together."


Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 317850

"It was."
I'll go return the sword and shield to the armory.
"You'd best pick that up, though. You need to respect your weapons."

Sidus [Rogue] 317851

"Pfft, that wasn't my weapon! That was just some throw-away toy. My real weapons are much more…"

DM 317852

The assistant looks a little surprised
"Hm? Newcomers? What are you doing here? If you're looking for the councilor he is two floors down."

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 317853

I'll stop him before he can finish
"Exactly, it wasn't your weapon. And if you don't treat any weapon you use without the respect it deserves, they will turn on you."

Papaver Field [Mage] 317854

"Well that's.. Something strange happened earlier in the library…"
Nudge Star.
"C'mon, tell him."

Sidus [Rogue] 317855

I laugh again.
"I didn't really see it turn against me back there. In fact, it was quite helpful!"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 317858

I shake my head at her.
"You do!"

DM 317859

Papaver Field [Mage] 317861

"But it happened to you!"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 317862

I'll snort.
"Actions form habits. Disregard of one thing can lead to disregard of another. And I never said it would happen immediately."
I'll pick up the lance, dust it off, and return it to the rack.

DM 317864

The instructor comes check on you
"You two hotheads done?"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 317865

"I believe so, sir."

Papaver Field [Mage] 317869

"She went in some kind of trance while reading a book, then suddenly we could not wake her up! The headmaster came, said something about a mark, woke her up and left!
We have no idea what that was!"

Sidus [Rogue] 317870

"That lance is smalltime compared to what I have!"

Take out my sword, swing at the air a few times, then extend the handle to make it a glaive and give him a grin.

"This is the real deal!"

"Yes, I, Sidus have been victorius, like it was ordained!"

DM 317872

"Oh? OH! You're what he was talking about! one second please."
The assistant gets up and enters the headmaster's office.
He returns after a while
"…the headmaster has asked you to speak with him."
The instructor writes something in his notebook
"Very good. Anything else you two need then?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 317873

Gulp down and look at Star.
"We… We should go in…"
Shakily try to take a step…

Sidus [Rogue] 317874

I levitate my glaive up, fold it to sword size then put it back where it belongs.
"Yeah, that was all. Unless you want some autographs."

Star Hopper [Cleric] 317875

Internet is just fucking with me right now
I gulp and hide behind her

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 317876

"Nothing for me, sir."

DM 317877

"Bring us the head of a demon of Tartarus and we'll talk about autographs, kiddo."
You may enter when you feel ready

Sidus [Rogue] 317878

I grin.
"Okay, which way to go there?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 317880

"C-C'mon, it can't be anything bad, right?"
Say shakily, with a not-so-convinving smile.
Slowly walk in.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 317881

"W-we can still go back! It's not too late!"

Papaver Field [Mage] 317883

"He kinda asked us to come in…" Gulp down again.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 317889

"We can just tell him we got lost on the way there!"

DM 317890

The Headmaster steps out
"Ah, There you are."

Papaver Field [Mage] 317891

Bow down.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 317892

I shriek and crawl under Papaver

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 317893

Assuming they don't need me for anything, I'll politely excuse myself to the instructors, and make my way back inside.

DM 317895

"Please. Do come in."
He silently walks back into his office
Where would you like to go?
"South east, past the gates guarded by Cerberus."
He has a sarcastic tone

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 317897

Well, how much time until dinner is called? I might check the library, just to know how to get there.

Papaver Field [Mage] 317898

Well, there it goes. He's gonna kick us both for being so stupid to fall for a cursed book or something.
Walk shakily in after him and stand veeeery still once inside.

But yeah, take sight of his office.

Sidus [Rogue] 317899

"How much days of travel? Wouldn't want to get too hungry by going there, slaying every demon of Tartarus then coming back!"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 317900

Keep walking/crawling along underneath Papaver
"I'm really really sorry what happened mister Headmaster… I-I didn't do it on purpose!"

DM 317903

You have well enough time. Seems the library is on the second floor.
His office is more like a reliquary. It has artifacts from numerous sources, and tons of notes and books.
The windows offer a good view of the academy grounds.
"Please, do sit. The reason I wanted to see you again is because I believe you are… special."
"Well for one, none can pass the Cerberus. For another, no leaving academy grounds without permission."

Sidus [Rogue] 317904

"Pff, who's this 'Cerberus' compared to me? I could take him on in my sleep!"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 317905

I skittishly take a seat.
"… special? Y-you mean I have some kind of a disease?"

DM 317906

"Well, why don't you write a report about him and hand it to me by tomorrow, hotshot?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 317907

He wanted to see us again? But he left without a word! We seeked him out.
And yeah, chickened out at the last second. But take a seat.
How does one sit respectfully?
Am I overthinking this?
Oh god.
He said special.

Sidus [Rogue] 317908

"Writing is for eggheads, give me a real challenge!"

DM 317910

"No. A certain mark. One that is not visible, or immediately apparent, but one many before you have shared.
I have read much of it, and have dedicated years into studying it.
I never thought I could get closer to an answer than these old artifacts I have amassed. But then I felt something new. Something about the new arrivals.
Among them were some with a strange power to them.
And after today, I believe you are at least one… if not two of those."
"Make it ten pages long.
And if you turn it in late I'm getting you the girls' uniform come laundry day. Now hurry along. Lots of writing to do."

Sidus [Rogue] 317911

I roll my eyes.

Go to the library I guess.

Papaver Field [Mage] 317912

"T-two?" Gulp down.
Wait. Hold the line. Something's about to happen.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 317914

My ears perk up slightly and I give him a fearful look
"… A m-mark? Like… a birth mark? A cutie mark? What kind of power? Is it dangerous?"

DM 317916

"Some refer to it as the mark of the Master. But that is only one of the dozens of names I have seen for it.
I will be keeping an eye on you two. And I feel, those you come in deeper contact with.
That is all, you can go."
The librarian greets you
"How can I help?"

Sidus [Rogue] 317920

"I am Sidus! If you can come out of the stupor that my greatness can cause, I need a book on Cerberus!"

DM 317925

"Beasts of Legend series. Try the biology section."

Papaver Field [Mage] 317926

"Wh… What? What does that even mean? Who is the Master?"

Sidus [Rogue] 317927

Look for that!

Roll #1 10 = 10

Star Hopper [Cleric] 317928

I look a little troubled
"M-mark of the Master? I don't think I've ever read about that before…"

DM 317935

"Not even I am entirely sure. And I won't bother nor needlessly worry you with details. Simply know, that if I am indeed right, you will have great destinies ahead of you."
There it is! Easy peasy.
[Beasts of Legend: C]
This book is full of useful info!
Roll 3d10 for essay quality

DM 317939

total quality /100

Sidus [Rogue] 317943


Make sure to write in it about how great I am and my exploits and how I can do eveything better than anyone.

Roll #1 7, 1, 7, 4, 3, 1, 5, 10, 5, 2 = 45

Star Hopper [Cleric] 317944

"Great destinies? But… I'm just little old me, I just wanted to read some books…"

Papaver Field [Mage] 317946

"Y-yeah! Not like we are anything special! Eheh…"
Gulp down nervously.

Nock 317948

"What are you talking about? I told you all Paladins are prepared for great acts! You should be excited!"

Just established that I was here for the sake of later. I seriously can't quest by phone.

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 317953

I'll have spent my time there, then, until it's time to eat. Maybe look through some anatomy books. Need to know where to hit someone to make it count. '1d10'

Roll #1 8 = 8

DM 317957

Yep, that should do well.
You especially like pages 2 and 6, where you embellish your own fictional battle against the Cerberus.
"I am sure of nothing yet, so best not worry over it. Run along now. I need to check a few things."
Looks like Sidus is here too.
You also pick up a book called [The Anatomy of Battle], and can read it when you want to.

Sidus [Rogue] 317959

Make sure to underline every example of my name before giving it in.

Sylt 317960

"Y-yes Headmaster!"
Bow my head and leave.

DM 317961

You can turn it in tomorrow morning.
…what is Jonagold doing here? Is he stalking you or something?

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 317964

I shall. Do I get anything useful out of it, or is it over my head? '1d10'

Roll #1 2 = 2

Sidus [Rogue] 317965

I bet he just followed me to state at me in awe!

Flash a pose, for everyone around!

Roll #1 6 = 6


Okay I guess after this I should really go back to the library.
Look for a book about this 'Master', whatever it is.

Roll #0 9 = 9

Star Hopper [Cleric] 317969

Follow her for sure

"But… I'm not a paladin yet."

Papaver Field [Mage] 317970

"But we will be! Especially if this things turns out to be true, it's in our dest-"
Okay no, stop talking.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 317972

"… I just want to do my own little thing. I'm not a hero or a chosen one. I-I can't be!"

Papaver Field [Mage] 317976

Look a bit pissed at this.
"You can't be, uh? What abou-"
"No. Let's just look for info on this, okay? It's not our place to decide what we are, after all. I should know."

Star Hopper [Cleric] 317979

I pace around with a distressed look on my face
"This is ridiculous… I knew I should have gone to the mage academy instead!"

DM 317980

You open an entirely random page.
It happens to be a two page spread of a penis.
I'm pretty sure everyone in the vicinity saw that.
…he seems to be reading a book about dicks.
[Myths and Heresies of Yore - By: Roil Read]

Papaver Field [Mage] 317982

Show her the book and move to a table.
Read about the 'Master'.

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 317983


Close the book, open it from the front.
Page 1.

Sidus [Rogue] 317984

OOookay I'll just leave now…

Let's go to the main building!

Star Hopper [Cleric] 317987

I eye the book carefully

Papaver Field [Mage] 317989

"The Headmaster named it… It can't be that bad, right?"
Gulp down nervously.

DM 317994

[-The Master is a deity who is sometimes referenced in stories relating to creation and destiny. No real records of worship exist, only snippets of mentions in texts regarding heroes of old and some authors. With no known places or worship or structure indicating a proper religion, odds are The Master is some obscure deity from ancient times that random ponies ended up worshiping or at least acknowledging possibly in hopes of good fortune and guidance.-]
[The Anatomy of Battle, a collection of medical texts and combat techniques conveniently united in a single tome. Here, you will find all the information you will ever need on optimizing damage in combat.-]
You technically are there already. What part would you like to explore?

Sidus [Rogue] 317995

Where I can find the most students!

Papaver Field [Mage] 317996

Nope. Too spooky. Pass the book over to Star with a shaken expression.
"Not dealing with this. Too strange!"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 317998

Alright, let's start reading. I'll go until dinner.
'1d10' for comprehension, 'r2 1d10' for speed.

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

DM 318001

A trio of mares did just head past you into the library.
Must be an egghead hotspot.
You barely get half way into the first chapter.
The book is written and illustrated in a very graphic style, and quite frankly you barely even want to eat any more.
You shudder to think what the later parts will be like…

Star Hopper [Cleric] 318002

"This is heresy! Oh no-no-no-no-no! If my parents find out I'm marked with heresy…"
Rolling to not freak out completely '1d10'

Roll #1 1 = 1

Sidus [Rogue] 318004

Pfft, three…

I need a crowd!


"W-whoa! Calm down!"
Try to hold her.
"It's not our fault! Is just something the Headmaster said!"

Roll #0 1 = 1

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 318006

I'll put the book down for a moment and rub my temples.
"At this rate, I'm gonna need a tutor."

DM 318011

You get a sudden vision of hellish depths. Of dark rock and black flame. Of screaming demons and of a jagged crown.
And of a light that cuts through it all.
Snapping out of it, you are screaming, flailing wildly, and wet yourself.
Holding onto her was not really a good plan, and you take a panicking hoof to the jaw and land in a wet pool on the floor.
What in the hell is going on with those three over there…?
You could try the Dining Hall or Dorms

Sidus [Rogue] 318012

Ha, Dining Hall, that will be perfect!

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 318014

I guess the staff are busy. I'll head over to see what's what.
I'll stop next to the downed mare.
"Need a hoof?"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 318015

Run the fuck out of there like Tirek himself is chasing me
Rolling to calm down too '1d10'

Roll #1 7 = 7

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 318017

I'll try to grab her. '1d10'

Roll #1 6 = 6

DM 318018

It's only a book.
Also, a big stallion just grabbed you >>318017

The earliest and hungriest have gathered to eat.


"N-no! I'm not a heretic! Please don't hurt me!"
Try not to burst in tears

Roll #0 6 = 6

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 318022

"Who said you were a heretic? What are you even talking about?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 318029

had dinner, sorry.
"No WAIT!"
Follow Star.
"Oh thank you for stopping her!"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 318031

I cover my head with my hooves
"I-I… I'm sorry, I just saw something and panicked and… it was awful…"

Papaver Field [Mage] 318034

"C'mon d-don't scare me like that! You almost had me running for my life back there!"
Give an unconvinced playful jab at her sides.

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 318035

I'll chuckle a little bit.
"Well, depending on your definition of it, I've seen a few awful things today too."
Suddenly I'll remember that I've grabbed her. Letting go, I'll take a step back.
"Are you calm now?"

Sidus [Rogue] 318038

Stand on one of the table, clear my throat, and start.
"Hey, other lowly students! I want to make an announcment! I just wanted to say that I, Sidus, the pony who will be the best in everything these classes can offer, the first one to graduate and the pony who will be greater than the Gods themselves! Any questions?"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 318041

"I'm really really sorry… I just… I just freaked out. I didn't hurt you, did I?"
Heal her jaw! '1d10'

I nod sheepishly

Roll #1 4 = 4

Papaver Field [Mage] 318044

"You… Wha.. Oh, the jaw. It won't leave a bruise, right?"
Give squel as I realize the pain followed by a concerned expression.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 318047

I look away
"I'm sorry… I told you I'm not really good with other ponies…"

Papaver Field [Mage] 318049

"Hey we just learnt about… That! I mean, I'm scared too!"

DM 318050


Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 318052

"Well, you'll have plenty of practice here, I suppose."
Extending a hoof, I'll give a small smile.
"Name's Jonagold. What's yours?"

Sidus [Rogue] 318053

I grin.
"I'm glad we came to an agreement!"

Get off the table.

DM 318055

Roll to see if anyone gave a shit

Star Hopper [Cleric] 318057

"I'm really sorry though… I messed up already and we only met a few hours ago…"
I look at the ground sadly

I look at his hoof apprehensively, not daring to extend my own
"Uh… I'm Star Hopper."

Sidus [Rogue] 318059


Roll #1 4 = 4

Papaver Field [Mage] 318060

Move in close and whisper.
"Looks like you are better than you say. Already caught a nice stallion."
Giggle up.

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 318061

"Nice to meet you, Miss Hopper."
Shifting the hoof to the other mare, I'll offer the hoofshake to her as well.
"And you are?"

DM 318065

Well one guy did.
But he is a guard, and he was the one who told you to get off the table.

Papaver Field [Mage] 318066

"A very beaten mare."
Giggle up as I massage my jaw.
"Papaver Field."
Try to smile and give him my hoof.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 318069

I look at her, surprised
Rolling to not drop my spaghetti '1d10'

Roll #1 4 = 4

Sidus [Rogue] 318070

I roll my eyes.
"They are just not ready for my greatness yet…"

How's the food?

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 318071

I'll give it a hearty shake.
"And nice to meet you as well, miss Field."
Letting go of her hoof, I'll continue.
"Don't suppose you two would join me for dinner? It's nice sitting next to people you know, after all."

DM 318072

Looks like there is a long line.
But it does smell lovely.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 318073

Looks like some sauce started leaking out of my bags
"I… I…" Igottagowatermydogandtakemyplantsforawalkgoodbyeandgoodnight!"
Run back to my room

Sidus [Rogue] 318074

Long lines are not for me!
To the front I go!

DM 318075

Aaaaand out the door you go.
Thrown by the guard
"Come back when you learn how a line works."
And back in your room you are, you italian buffet.

Papaver Field [Mage] 318076

Look at Star run and give a sheepish smile to Jonagold.
"I'm sorry gotta run after her. Good to meet you!"

Run after Star, bock to our room.

Nock 318078

And Nock was also there too, being ignored.

Continue following.

Sidus [Rogue] 318079

"Hey! I know how it works! The best get to be first! Meaning I get to be in the front!"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 318081

I'll sort of awkwardly wave them goodbye.
Taking a few steps back towards the table where I left that book, am I lucky enough to avoid the puddle? '1d10'

Roll #1 9 = 9

Star Hopper [Cleric] 318083

Clean myself up and get back to reading.

… why is interacting with other ponies so hard? Reading is so much easier…

Papaver Field [Mage] 318085

Slowly open the door.
Speak softly, with a small smile and concerned eyes.

DM 318087

Yes you are.
You should probably notify the librarian though.
"First come first served. Try not being slow next time if you want to be the first to eat."

Star Hopper [Cleric] 318089

"… Hi. You didn't have to follow me. Just go eat dinner with that nice stallion. I-I'll be fine on my own, really."


Jump on the bed.
Throw her a pillow!

Roll #0 2 = 2

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 318094

After shelving the book, I'll do so.
"Ma'am, there's a puddle over in that section there."

Sidus [Rogue] 318095

I roll my eyes.
"Once you realise my greatness you'll weep for ever making me wait for my food."

Wait in the line.
Hand out pictures of myself to ponies while doing so.

Roll #1 1 = 1

Star Hopper [Cleric] 318098

"Well yes, I really don't want to upset you even more than I have."
I look away sadly
"… that was so embarrassing…"

DM 318102

After shoving them desperately at some of the female students, you are thrown out of the dining hall for good.
You have made some enemies this day.
"Thank you. I'll get a mop.
…I do really need to ban drinks in the library. One day someone will spill one on a book…"

Sidus [Rogue] 318105

They will be swept away by my highness!

I really should get some food somehow though.

Roll #1 8 = 8

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 318106

Nodding, I'll make my way to the dining hall. Hopefully the line isn't too long.


"Hei you were not the one covered in piss. Good thing that guy didn't mind."
Look at the pillow that falls flat on the floor, a mile away from Star.
"No pillow fight, uh? I'll take a shower."

Go hit the tub.

Roll #0 8 = 8

Star Hopper [Cleric] 318108

I cover my face with my hooves and groan weakly
"Why am I so bad at this…?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 318109


Star Hopper [Cleric] 318112

Pull some blankets over me and light my horn so I can read in peace

DM 318114

You could probably try and bribe someone.
Or beg.
Or you know, behave.
Looks like your roommate is stuck outside, looking grumpy.
Lets see about that room of yours again.
1 - collective bathroom and shower, shared with other rooms
2 - own bathroom, collective shower
3 - own shower as well
4 - holy shit there is even a balcony

Roll #1 4 = 4

DM 318115

Somehow you got like the best dorm ever.
Must be that "greater destiny" thing.
Enjoy your private shower and balcony.

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 318116

Knowing him, he probably did something that warranted it. I'll head inside and get in line.

DM 318122

Looks like the line isn't too long any more.
Food smells lovely too.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 318123

A balcony!
Rush out from under my covers and check it out! Bring along my telescope as well!
"O-oh gosh!"


Oh my. Step out of the shower and look at Star Hopper.
Pull the sheets from over her and make a spooky face!

Roll #0 1 = 1

Sidus [Rogue] 318127

Or I could try and sneak in…

Roll #1 10 = 10

DM 318142

You can see all the way across the training grounds to the other dorm from here!
You trip on the bed and violently headbutt her.
You are a very sneaky pony.
You go into the tray return line and walk backwards into the lunch area, pick up your food and go sit down.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 318143

I shriek and run away
"Sorry sorry sorry!"

Sidus [Rogue] 318145

Enjoy my food with a cocky grin!


Rub my forehead.
"No that was… Kinda my fault…"
Smile sheepishly.
"Eheh, wanted to sneak on you."

Roll #0 3 = 3

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 318150

I'll just sit somewhere with my food. Are there any open tables? '1d10'

Roll #1 3 = 3

Star Hopper [Cleric] 318154

I stop and look at her
"So… y-you're not angry at me?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 318158

"Oh shush, of course I'm not. We went through a lot today, you are maybe the only pony who can understand that!"

DM 318159

No, but I'm sure Sidus will share his.
Damn it tastes good. Must be even better because you WON it. You OUTSMARTED them all!

Star Hopper [Cleric] 318163

I nod
"I'm… sorry I made you all dirty…"
I avert my gaze
"This is so embarrassing… Some student I am…"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 318168

I'll sit across from him.
"So how'd you manage to get your food before I did, despite being outside when I got in line?"

Sidus [Rogue] 318171

I chuckle.
"Did I not tell you that I'm the best?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 318172

"Damn right you are sorry! And now you gotta make up for it!"
Throw her a towel.
"Go take a shower and let's go eat dinner."

Star Hopper [Cleric] 318175

I nod and go clean up again, too afraid to tell her I cleaned myself up already
"… I'm ready."

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 318176

I'll grunt noncommittally and just start eating.

Sidus [Rogue] 318181

"It's okay, many feel bad because they are not as good as me!"


"Let's go then!"
Perk up and move for the dinery.
How's the food around here?

Roll #0 3 = 3

DM 318189

They ran out of the best stuff…
You need to wait for the next serving if you want any.


Pout a bit, but look for a seat for now. That shower was too good to be angry at food.

Roll #0 9 = 9

Star Hopper [Cleric] 318194

"… food is food… right?"
Go stand in line.

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 318195

If I can see 1'd10' >>318193 , can I wave her over?

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 318197


Roll #1 8 = 8

Papaver Field [Mage] 318204

Well I guess I see him.
"Woohw! He's the stallion from before, Star!"
Let's go near him.
"Is that invitation still valid?"

DM 318206

Looks like your pal from the library is eating over yonder >>318195

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 318212

"Sure is."

Sidus [Rogue] 318215

"You two know each other? Have you told her about my greatness yet?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 318217

Seat over.
"Nice! Got to try the food yet?"
Raise a brow to him.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 318222

That's nice and all but… I want food.
"Um… I think I'll just uh… sit someplace else then…"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 318223

"Yup. It's pretty good."
And I'll roll my eyes at Sidus.
"Don't mind him, he's just… confident."

Sidus [Rogue] 318228

"In case he forgot to inform you, he is my roommate, and I myself am Sidus, the one and only, the pony who shall ascend to the Gods and then!"

Papaver Field [Mage] 318236

"Don't be silly! Come with me!"
"Oooh is it? Any chance we can try some? Seems like it's all out at the buffet!"
"Ooookay, I guess? I'm Papaver Field."

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 318239

"Sure, I guess."

Sidus [Rogue] 318242

"Here, you can have this!"
Give her a signed picture of myself.
"You'll thank me later."

Star Hopper [Cleric] 318245

"… okay then. But I still want food."
Sit down next to her

Papaver Field [Mage] 318248

Give him a flat look.
"Yeah me too."

Turn to the stallions.

"Gotta find food first of all. See you guys soon, don't give away the seats."
Giggle up and leave.


DM 318250

Looks like there is no more line. Feel free to grab everything that is left.

Sidus [Rogue] 318251

Give her a picture of myself as well.
"I hope you didn't miss it, but in case you did, I am Sidus the one and only, the great, the irreplaceable!"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 318256

Grab everything I could possibly carry.

"Uh… uh… could you hold onto that? I need to carry some stuff back to the table first."



Roll #0 4 = 4

DM 318267

Mostly boring stuff. Steamed veggies. Salad. Seeds. Fruit.

Sidus [Rogue] 318271

"This is more important!"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 318273

It's still food! Grab all I can! '1d10'

I scrunch
"But… food!"

Roll #1 10 = 10

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 318274

"Just give it a rest for a minute, Sidus."


You call that boring? I'm gonna get a plateful and enjoy the holy light out of them.
Once my playe is filled, go back to the table and ENJOY IT!

Roll #0 2 = 2

Papaver Field [Mage] 318277

"What's his problem?"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 318280

I'll shrug.
"Like I said, he's confident. Bordering on insane. Probably. Maybe."
I'll wave it off.
"I'm sure the instructors will knock him down a peg once classes start."

Sidus [Rogue] 318281

"You say food is more important than acquiring a relic, such an articaft?"

"She can eat afterwards!"

DM 318283

You get a ton of food! Yay for food!
It's gotten a little cold…
+2 for desert quality roll


Ugh. Cold veggies.
"Oh c'mon we've had a long day, stop pressing my friend so much!"

And now I think I should wash out the taste of those veggies with something sweet.

Roll #0 6 + 2 = 8

Star Hopper [Cleric] 318291

"Well… I'm really hungry but…"
I sheepishly take it
"… thanks?"

NOW DIG IN '1d10'

Roll #1 1 = 1

Sidus [Rogue] 318293

"You're welcome!"

"I'm doing her a favor!"

Papaver Field [Mage] 318296

Roll my eyes at him.

Sidus [Rogue] 318297

"You don't believe me?"

DM 318298

The food is stuck in your throat.
You gasp for air, knock the plate over and fall on the floor, eyes watering. You are helpless and choking.

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 318299

Leaning over a little, I'll whisper to Papaver.
"At least it'll make a half decent napkin."



Roll #0 5 = 5

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 318303

Or not, oh jeez.
I'll attempt to assist. '1d10'

Roll #1 10 = 10

Sidus [Rogue] 318304

"Aha! A task for my greatness!"

Save her!

Roll #1 8 = 8

DM 318308

Oh my~ being helped by two brave stallions~
how heroic

Star Hopper [Cleric] 318311

I cough and wipe my eyes, whimpering
"Not again…"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 318314

"Are you alright? Here, drink some water."

Sidus [Rogue] 318318

"How was your first time being saved by me?"

I grin.

Papaver Field [Mage] 318323

Glance at the two.
"You. Move. Now."
trot over to her and give her a hoof.
"Hey don't worry, everything is alright."
Give her a big smile.

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 318324

I'll raise an eyebrow, but leave Star to her friend.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 318325

"I'm fine, I'm fine… Don't worry. I-I just got a little too excited again."

Sidus [Rogue] 318327

I chuckle.
"That's absolutely understandable! I would get excited too if I were given a picture of myself!"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 318329

"Whu-? Oh no it was just becau-"
I cut myself off and sigh
"… nevermind."
Get back up on my hooves and sheepishly get back to eating

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 318330

"Well, as long as you're feeling alright. You've got to remember to chew your food, though."

Papaver Field [Mage] 318335

"Disaster averted."
Chuckle and go back to eating.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 318336

I blush
"I know… sorry."

Sidus [Rogue] 318338

Pat her on the head.
"It's okay, don't worry, if you are lucky you might even get in the same class with me and bathe in my presence even more!"

Papaver Field [Mage] 318344

"Hey. No touchy."
Give him the stare of death.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 318345

I shrink a little under his touch
"Oh that would be…"
I pause for a moment
"Uh… nice?"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 318346

I'll smile.
"Nothing to be sorry about. No shame in enjoying a good meal."
I'll head back to my seat and continue eating.

Sidus [Rogue] 318351


Papaver Field [Mage] 318356

"You heard me. Just because she's not saying no doesn't mean you can touch her at will!"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 318364

Seeing as these two are about to get into it, I'll motion to Star.
Scooting down the table, I'll give them plenty of room for their kerfluffle.

Sidus [Rogue] 318365

I shake my head.
"Tsk tsk tsk, it was just a friendly pat on the head, and everypony wants to be touched by my mightiness!"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 318369

I just try to keep eating in peace.

… '1d10'

Roll #1 7 = 7

Papaver Field [Mage] 318372

Give him a Clint Squint.
Or the pony version of that.
"Star, tell him what you want."
Keep staring at this pony.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 318376

"I… I… Food? Uh… books? Magic?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 318379

"Good girl."

Turn to Sidus.
"See? Says nowhere there 'ponies touching without permission'."

Sidus [Rogue] 318382

Boop her on the nose and grin.
"Make me!"

Papaver Field [Mage] 318387

"I can just call the guards and they'll do it."

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 318390

"What kind of books?"

Sidus [Rogue] 318391

"For that? What do you think this is, a monastery for nuns?"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 318392

"Papaver please… T-there's no need to, really. I'm fine."

I turn to him
".. magic books? Oh and astronomy too!"

Papaver Field [Mage] 318393

"No. One for paladins. And the virtue of body matters as much as those of mind!"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 318395

"Astronomy? What's so interesting about the stars?"

Sidus [Rogue] 318398

"Yes! And she should feel graced now that she has came into contact with my greatness!"

Papaver Field [Mage] 318400

"Pff, I bet you are all talk!"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 318401

My eyes widen
"W-what? The stars are really interesting! How can you say that!? There's so much beauty and… and…"
Feeling suddenly very self-aware, I simmer down, quieting down to a whisper
"And stuff…"


Okay do I notice this mood shift?

Roll #0 3 = 3

Sidus [Rogue] 318404

I chuckle.
"Really now? Jonagold here could tell you about that."

Papaver Field [Mage] 318408

"I don't need nopony to tell me anything! Tomorrow, training field!"
Grin at him.

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 318409

"And? You can't just trail off like that when you talk about something you like."

Sidus [Rogue] 318415

"Why not now?"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 318416

"… nothing. I just like looking at the sky…"

DM 318417

You are too busy with other shit

Papaver Field [Mage] 318418

"Because it's late night and there's a curfew?"

Sidus [Rogue] 318425

"Curfew can wait, I'm sure nopony would mind if I quickly defeated you before going to sleep!"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 318426

I'll leave it at that.
"Well, the night sky can get pretty nice…"
After thinking a moment, I'll continue.
"But you said you liked more than just astronomy books, right? I guess that means you really like to read?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 318428

"I want everypony to be there when I kick you ass, and the Sun will shine bright for them to see!"

Sidus [Rogue] 318437

"If you want to embarass yourself in front of everypony by a diminishing defeat by my hooves, so be it!"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 318438

"Well… I've learned a lot of healing magic. I… I wanted to become a doctor or a mage first but my parents sent me here instead."
I trace a hoof on the table, looking away from him
"So yeah… I like reading a lot."

I give her a worried look

Papaver Field [Mage] 318441

"Yeah, like I'd lose to a second-rate fighter like you!"
"What? He's seriously pissing me off!"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 318443

"That's a really good thing to do. Healing magic is hard stuff, from what I hear. And you can still be a doctor here. Just… you'll be able to defend yourself if you get into a fight. Not that you wouldn't have ponies looking out for you, of course."

Sidus [Rogue] 318447

"Second rate? Hah! My greatness is number one top of everything!"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 318451

"… can't we just get along?"

"Well… mom did teach me how to use a sword already. She's an inquisitor while my dad is a preacher"

Papaver Field [Mage] 318455

"Talk talk talk. All you can do, pony?"
Mouth agape, turn and stare at her.
"B-but he's just bragging and bragging! And he pushes himself on ponies!"

Sidus [Rogue] 318461

"I told you. I'm ready to face your challenge right now if you want to get beaten that quick!"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 318469

"That's interesting. My family's nothing but farmers, 'cept for my great-uncle Empire Apple who decided to be a knight. He's why I decided to join up, to do his memory some honor."

Star Hopper [Cleric] 318478

I paw at the floor uncomfortably
"Well… maybe he'll apologize?"

"Could you… simmer down a little? Please?"

"Oh… most of my family are holy ponies. I would have rather gone to the magic academy but… well… I was sent here instead. At least they have a big library, that's really nice."

Papaver Field [Mage] 318482

"… Okay."
Just stare at him.

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 318491

I'll smile.
"Well, look on the bright side. If you had gone to the magic academy, you wouldn't have met your friend, miss Field."

Sidus [Rogue] 318493

"My powerfulness can't be contained!"

Papaver Field [Mage] 318495

Throw my hooves in the air and totally ignore him from now on.
Turn to Jonagold.
"That's right! And we'll become the best of friends ever!"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 318499

I give her a thankful smile

"… I guess so. She's nice."

"… please?"
I give him a hopeful look

Sidus [Rogue] 318506

"She challenged me, you heard her!"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 318510

I'll just nod.
"One last thing, miss Hopper. If I have trouble studying in the future, I'll probably end up asking you for help."

Star Hopper [Cleric] 318517

"But… can't you just fight this out differently? L-like a game of chess maybe?"

I nod
"That's okay I suppose."

Sidus [Rogue] 318520

"Chess? I'm too great for such pitiful games! Fighting is where it's at!"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 318521

"But isn't chess like fighting, but with your brain?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 318522

"Wait. First you tell me to stay calm, and then suggest we fight it out?"
"For once, I agree!"

Sidus [Rogue] 318523

"It's too boring for me! Not enough action!"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 318525

"… But why hurt each other for fun? I don't understand…"

"I just don't want anypony to get hurt, that's all…"

Sidus [Rogue] 318528

"Oh don't worry! Only she will get hurt!"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 318532

"Sidus, just finish your food before I go get one of the captains."

Papaver Field [Mage] 318533

"You would like that! I'm gonna bash your face in!"
Grin at him.
"I'm buff, he's a wimp. No way I'm gonna lose!"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 318534

I look at the both of them and sigh weakly
"Okay then…"
Take some food with me and go back to my room to read.

Sidus [Rogue] 318535

"Oh come on! Just because you lost against my greatness you don't have to be sore about it!"

"Famous last words!"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 318541

I'll bus my tray as well.
"See you tomorrow."

Papaver Field [Mage] 318543

"Hey Jona, you are gonna let him talk to you like th-"
Wait, Star is leaving?
"Hey don't leave me alone with them!"
Trot after her.

Sidus [Rogue] 318544

I guess my fans have dispersed.

Back to the dorm!

Star Hopper [Cleric] 318545

"… I thought you wanted to fight Sidus? I don't want to see you get hurt…"

Papaver Field [Mage] 318548

"Oh don't be silly. It's late and it's stupid to fight without a crowd, or at least a bard to sing your deeds!
We will totally fight tomorrow!"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 318556

"… I don't understand though. Why do you want to fight? Ponies that fight are usually mean…"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 318557

I guess I'll head back to the dorm room and put my things in order before lights out.

Papaver Field [Mage] 318559

"Hey! Is that what you think? That I am mean?" Give her a sad face and a trembling lip with huge baby eyes.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 318562

"N-no! You're nice but… still you want to fight somepony else?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 318564

"Well he was the one bragging how good he was. I think he'll enjoy a fight, no?"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 318567

I shake my head
Crawl into bed read some more before sleeping.

DM 318584


You have some time before lights out. Use it well.
The faculty brought little booklets to all dorm rooms too.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 318589


Roll #1 9 = 9

Sidus [Rogue] 318590

Read them!

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 318591

I'll square my gear away, then lie on the bed and start reading the booklet.


"Hey, c'mon, fighting can be nice too."
Crawl alongside her.
Sigh and watch as she reads.
But… But… I KNOW! The balcony! Take the guitarhammer and go on the balcony, try to play something.

Roll #0 10 = 10

DM 318613

Define "books"
Seems to be a guidebook to possible courses you can take in the first year.
-Antimagic and Spellbreaking
-Vocal skills and Words of Power
-Combat arts and Blasting
-MANDATORY: Paladin Code
-MANDATORY: Combat training
-MANDATORY: History, Religion and Arts
You strum a few notes, then find a good rhythm. Over the course of the next few minutes, you hum and play what will, in time, become the Honour March of Canterlot's Paladin Order.

Sidus [Rogue] 318623

"Combat arts, haha! That's something!"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 318624

Nevermind the books, set up my telescope outside!

"It's evening!"

DM 318626

You can see the sky nicely.
…you could probably also spy on parts of the academy if you were so inclined.

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 318628

Hmm. That's a fairly wide selection of classes.

Papaver Field [Mage] 318629

These description really feel me with joy.
"Well i'm not gonna fight now… Hey is that a telescope?"
Stare in awe.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 318632

… why would I want to do that? Stars are pretty! Look at them! Magic out my book on astronomy and start gazing!

I nod eagerly, a large goofy grin on my face

Papaver Field [Mage] 318634

Sit besides her and look as she stares at the stars.
"I wanna look at them too~"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 318635

Putting the booklet down, I'll hit the showers before going to sleep.
We do have showers, right?

DM 318638

lets see.
1 - collective bathroom and shower, shared with other rooms
2 - own bathroom, collective shower
3 - own shower as well
4 - holy shit there is even a balcony

Roll #1 4 = 4

DM 318642


Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 318645

Hot damn. Let's go look out over the campus while I towel off.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 318648

I gaze a little longer, then let her look
"It's so pretty!"

Sidus [Rogue] 318651

I laugh.
"See, they knew that my greatness deserves such a good room! You are lucky to have been paired with me!"


Okay, turn my eyes to the sky and see…

Roll #0 9 = 9

DM 318656

Oh hey, you can see all the way to the girls dorm from here.
All the stars. Princess Luna has put on her best this night. It's downright dreamy.

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 318658

Neat. I'll head back in.

Papaver Field [Mage] 318659

"Holy Sun… You were right Star! It's beautiful!"
Give her back the telescope and point her at those stars.

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 318661

Actually, on second thought… I'll sit on the balcony for a bit. Watch the sky.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 318662

"I know!"
Get back to gazing at the nightsky! '1d10'

Roll #1 10 = 10

Sidus [Rogue] 318665

I guess there is a nice good place for my weapons while I will sleep?

Roll #1 4 = 4

DM 318667

You can see so many constellations you know! They seem to almost speak to you. The beauty of the night is truly a thing more ponies should learn to appreciate.
There is a rack in the closet.
It sure is nice.
A telescope might help with seeing the details, but even without one the cosmic tapestry is easy to appreciate.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 318669

"Oh stars… this is amazing… I could just… just… sit here all night!"

Sidus [Rogue] 318670

Can I repurpose the rack to be on the table for a proper display?

Roll #1 9 = 9

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 318671

Can I make out any familiar constellations? '1d10' A little bit of the same night sky as home might make me feel more comfortable.

Roll #1 9 = 9

Papaver Field [Mage] 318673

Giggle a bit.
"You'll catch a cold like that…"
Move back in and get a sheet from the bed, cover her with it.

DM 318674

Of course you can, if you don't mind not having a table for working.
You can make out a lot.
Truly it is like you never left home to begin with.

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 318677

I'll give a soft smile at that, and then head inside to sleep. Got a long day tomorrow.

Sidus [Rogue] 318678

Who needs a table anyway?

Do it!

Star Hopper [Cleric] 318679

I give her a thankful smile
"… thank you. You're really nice and kind, Papaver."

Papaver Field [Mage] 318683

"Hey, that's what friends do." Give her a smile, then go back in and take pillows for both of us and sheets to sleep on the balcony.

DM 318686

Now they are all nice and up for display.

Sidus [Rogue] 318688

Look at them for a while then head to sleep.
I need to gain my power to be powerful!

Star Hopper [Cleric] 318689

"… I never really had a real friend before… So I don't really know what to do…"

Papaver Field [Mage] 318707

"Well too bad. Now you have one."
Give her a smile and offer my hoof for her to hold.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 318715

I look at her hoof for a moment, then smile back and take it.
"Thank you… I never thought I'd find a friend on the first day…"

Papaver Field [Mage] 318752

"Well I would have never thought so either… Now can my friend show me what's cool about the sky?"
Give her a big, tender smile.

Ready for tomorrow.

DM 318880

And then they all slept.


DM 319972

Morning of the second day.
Rise and shine everyone
You are needed in the Great Hall for morning assemnly.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 319975

I yawn and get get up, tired from staying up so late the evening before.

Papaver Field [Mage] 319976

Sleeping on the balcony floor… Was it a bad idea?
At least I took enough sheets.

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 319980

I'll roll out of bed, and start suiting up. Don't know if they want us armed, but it never hurts to be ready.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 319983

"… I'm hungry."

Sidus [Rogue] 319984

How fresh am I?

Jump out of bed!

Roll #1 10 = 10

DM 319986

Roll for current state of health
You are so fresh a zebra walked up to you one day and was like DAAAAAAAAMN SON


"Yeah, me too. We should get ready…"

Okay time to make it worth of that huge bathroom we got.
Do something for my morning face.

Oh c'moooon.

Roll #0 8 = 8

Roll #1 3 = 3

Sidus [Rogue] 319991

Let out a laugh.
"Able and ready and great as always!"

Go to the balcony and do some stretching!

Roll #1 6 = 6

Star Hopper [Cleric] 319992

Get ready too '1d10'
Then leave for the mess hall and see if I can have some food

Roll #1 6 = 6

Nock [Tracker] 320000

Get up and get ready.

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 320004

After I'm suited up, I'll hit the mess as well. Can't start the day on an empty stomach. And I'll bring the class booklet with me.

DM 320023

Your throat is a little sore…
Better drink warm things today.
You are a very stretchy horse.
There are some students down below, walking to the main building.
You put on some basic clothes and head out
You got up early, and the line for breakfast is short.
Looks like a short line.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320027

Food! All the food! Take as much as I can carry! Maybe I can save some for later today '1d10'

Roll #1 10 = 10

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 320028

I'll fall in, get some food, and find a nice table. Should be plenty of them. '1d10'

Roll #1 1 = 1


Okay, line for breakfast on the first day short?
Warm tea it is!
Stare at her majestic stockpile of food in awe.

Roll #0 2 = 2

Nock [Tracker] 320031

Stare at her towering pile of pancakes.

"Uh, Star? Are you gonna leave some for the other students?"

Can I even find some flapjacks of my own? '1d10'

Roll #1 9 = 9

Sidus [Rogue] 320032

Put my hooves in the air
"Are you here to praise my greatness?"

Roll #1 5 = 5

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320035

"Uh… uh…"
I blush and put back half of what I gathered
"… sorry."

DM 320036

You sure do fall in. You slip on a dropped pancake and dive head first into the porridge.
The tea is kinda bland…
And more students are pouring in by the minute.
You get just about everything you can, then top it off with strawberries.
They look up and giggle.
Next time put some clothes on.
Sure you can. She can even share.
Generosity is a virtue, after all.

Sidus [Rogue] 320037

Clothes would just hide my perfect coat.
And glorious cutie mark.
And sporty form.

Dress up, just in case.

Papaver Field [Mage] 320038

"Bu- Girl, you are a bless from the sky. If you are that good at getting food I'm sticking with you."
Take the food Star left and make my way to our table.

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 320041

Well. That was embarrassing. I'll apologize, and then quietly make my way through the rest of the line and sit down. Are there napkins I could use to clean up? '1d10'

Roll #1 6 = 6

Nock [Tracker] 320042

Trot alongside Papaver.

"How was the balcony? Looked cold! I hope you're not too stiff for your first real day at the academy!"

Papaver Field [Mage] 320045

Wince and caress my troath with one hoof.
"Got a bit cold out there… Let's hope we don't have to shout too much."

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320051

I sit down next to her and quietly dig in, eating as much as I can

DM 320052

Well, you were promised uniforms later after all.
Of course. All you will ever need. Those girls from yesterday are here too.
Roll for deliciousness


Cute pony breakfast sure must be delicious, right?

Roll #0 6 = 6

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320055

All food is good food!

Roll #1 8 = 8

Sidus [Rogue] 320056

Time to get some food!

Roll #1 4 = 4


H-hey! I need a balanced and nutritious meal if I'm going to graduate top of my class!

Roll #0 6 = 6

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 320059

I'll wipe up as best as I can '1d10', and then trot over to their table.
"Is this seat taken?"

Roll #1 10 = 10


I shake my head and try to flash him a non-awkward smile

Roll #0 2 = 2

Papaver Field [Mage] 320064

Move a bit aside and let him sit comfortably.

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 320075

I'll settle in next to Papaver. Then I'll set the class booklet out next to my plate so I can look over it and think while eating.

DM 320076

Oh man that's super awkward. And kinda creepy in a sort of "I want to collect your hair" way.
Magical horse food sure is nice.
Looks like you're a little late. There are no more pancakes.
You are a very clean horse. No porridge left on you at all.

Sidus [Rogue] 320080

Pfff, who needs pancakes?

Give me real food!

Roll #1 4 = 4

Nock [Tracker] 320081

Give him a winning smile.

"I don't think we really got formally introduced before with all the commotion. I'm Nock. You're… I don't think I remember getting it, actually."

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320083

Okay, no more smiling for now

At least the food is nice

Papaver Field [Mage] 320087

Giggle up at her silly smile.
Girl is falling for him.
Eye his booklet.
"What's that?"

DM 320090

You get three raw eggs, a pile of seeds and half a cabbage, like a real warrior!

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 320091

"Name's Jonagold Apple. Nice to meet you."
"Didn't you get one? It's a class booklet. Showed up in our rooms before lights out."

Sidus [Rogue] 320092

Consume it like a man stallion!

Roll #1 9 = 9

Papaver Field [Mage] 320093

"Didn't really check, we were kinda beat tonight… Eheh…"

DM 320095

The bravado you put into eating would probably impress the feeble-minded.

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 320097

I'll shuffle the booklet so that she can see it.
"Lists the classes that are available, as well as the ones we've got to take. I'm kinda interested in the combat courses, but learning defensive skills might be a good idea too."

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320098

Inch a little closer so I can see too


"Whoa! Combat curses? Lemme see!"
Take a peak.

Roll #0 2 = 2

Sidus [Rogue] 320101

Wait for applause
Strike a pose, too

Roll #1 7 = 7

Nock [Tracker] 320108

Stretch my neck for a look.

"Both are important!"

DM 320110

A fat student claps
"Breddy good!"
You stretch too far and fall over on him
Courses listed for the first year:
-Antimagic and Spellbreaking
-Vocal skills and Words of Power
-Combat arts and Blasting
-MANDATORY: Paladin Code
-MANDATORY: Combat training
-MANDATORY: History, Religion and Arts


"Yeah but I want to be the greate-"
On top of a stallion I just met.

Roll #0 10 = 10

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320114

My ears droop slightly
"No magic…"

I help her up with my telekinesis
"You okay?"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 320116

Well, this is pretty awkward.
Let's see if I can't contain my spaghetti as well as she can. '1d10'

Roll #1 1 = 1

Sidus [Rogue] 320117

I'll need to improve my fanbase.

Let's try to find my friends.

Papaver Field [Mage] 320119

"Yeah! I just lost bal-"

Nock [Tracker] 320122

I inch over and whisper into her eat.

"I probably shouldn't be encouraging this magic-loving behavior, but blasting and words of power are magic. Spellbreaking too, technically."

DM 320132

You cannon, in any sense of the word, contain it.
Your spaghetti is very visible.
You have friends?
Well your roommate and those girls are over yonder.


Try to hide the furious blush.
"Was that… Was that my fault?"

Roll #0 1 = 1

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 320138

"S-sorry, I'm just not used to being… fallen on."
Blushing terribly, I'll just stare back at the booklet.
"Right. So. Classes."

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320139

"But… that's not the magic I like. I don't want to shout or bla-"

I shut up and look away, blushing furosiously

Sidus [Rogue] 320141

I jump up the nearest table with a grin.
"What's up, dorks?"


Try to pull Papaver off.

"Not at the breakfast table!"

Roll #0 7 = 7

DM 320143

Oh man just look at everyone blushing and being awkward.

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 320144

Oh thank Celestia, a distraction.
"We're looking over what classes to take."

Papaver Field [Mage] 320145

Stare at Nock with wide eyes and mouth agape.

Sidus [Rogue] 320146

I chuckle.
"No need to be embarassed, everypony, it's okay, I know my greatness is hard to handle!"

"Martial arts of course!"

DM 320148

There is a little blurb on the last page you missed previously
"All students must pick one optional course, and attend it along with all mandatory courses. Please report your desired course to the councilor as soon as possible."

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 320150

"Ah. It seems we can only pick one optional course in addition to the Mandatory ones. That just makes the decision harder…"
I'll settle into thought. What kind of Paladin do I want to be?

Nock [Tracker] 320151

Carefully right Papaver, brush her coat off a little, and gently close her hanging jaw with a hoof.

"There we go."

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320152

I try my best to ignore all of this commotion

My eyes widen slightly
"But… I don't want any of these optional classes…"

Papaver Field [Mage] 320157

Keep staring for a second but then shake my head and make sense of it all.
Blush slightly and turn to my food, toying a bit with it.
"Can't be that bad! You don't like that voiceworks? Or the Spell-whatever classes?"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 320158

"You might be good at spellbreaking, though. You could shut down hostile spells to keep ponies safe from harm."

Sidus [Rogue] 320160

"Haha, no, Blast is where the fun is!"

Nock [Tracker] 320161

I nod enthusiastically.

"Yeah, Star. Come with me! I'll show you the ropes! Do you know what my cutie mark represents?"

DM 320162

There is a discarded booklet on the floor.
It resembles yhe one you all got, only it is a different colour.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320163

"I don't want to shout at ponies though!"

"I guess so… I'll do that then."

"… no?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 320166

"Well dhu, but she doesn't like that kind of stuff, so we are looking for alternatives!"
Okay time to become small and smaller.
Let's just… Yeah, stay silent for a while.

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 320167

I'll pick it up.

Sidus [Rogue] 320168

Pick it up!
What's this?

Nock [Tracker] 320169

Hoof her playfully. "You didn't pay attention when we registered at all, did you? I listened to your answers!"

I proudly puff out my chest. "Magic hunting isn't just in my blood, it was always my destiny. My talent is for nullifying magic. I can do it with my bow!"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320171

"M-m-magic hunting? Oh… right… I forgot."
I shrink back slightly

Nock [Tracker] 320176

Playfully inch up next to her. "What are you scared of? I told you I'm not going to bite. After all the fun we had on our first day, you're going to get upset because I'm the daughter of an inquisitor?"

DM 320177

This appears to be the booklet for second year students.
-Two first year classes
-Advanced Combat Arts and Shattering
-Philosophy of War, Self-Discovery and Fervor
-MANDATORY: Forging and Weaponcraft
-MANDATORY: Extended Combat training
-MANDATORY: Extended History, Religion and Arts

Papaver Field [Mage] 320180

"What does that say?"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 320181

"It's a Second-Year booklet. They've got some more classes in here, including one about weapon forging."

Sidus [Rogue] 320182

"Bah, boring stuff! Nothing about me in it!"

Oh damn!

"Gotta run now though! I have a paper to give in!"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320183

I wince slightly
"… my mom is a inquisitor too though. But she doesn't dislike magic."

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 320184

I'll cock an eyebrow.
"On the first day?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 320185

Ignore him.
"Whoa hold on, I already have a weapon! My parents gifted it to me, I love it!"

DM 320186

The instructor is once again available at the training field.

Sidus [Rogue] 320187

"What better weapons than mine?"

"Yeah. They doubted my greatness could do it!"

Anyway, go and hand in my assignment!
Give it to him and grin.

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 320189

"Well, it is a second-year course. Maybe they'll teach us how to make our own, in case it breaks? Weapon forging could cover repairs, too."

Nock [Tracker] 320190

I give her a frown. "I didn't say I disliked magic. I said I have a talent for getting rid of it."

I nod at her.

"My crossbow is also an heirloom, but my family only uses it for the first year. I've seen a real paladin's weapon up close. You'll want one."

DM 320193

He gives it a quick readhtrough
"…this is mostly crap. I'm letting it slip because you aren't my student, but if you were, this would be a failed grade."

Papaver Field [Mage] 320196

Shift uncomfortably.
"You sure? I love my hammer…"

Look at the others.
"Should we move to the morning assembly?"

Sidus [Rogue] 320200

"What?! It has everything in it!"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320201

"But If your talent is getting rid of it… ah… nevermind…"

I nod, get up and stand besides her

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 320203

"Oh that's right, that's soon, isn't it?"

Nock [Tracker] 320204

"Good idea."

As we move, I chat idly: "You know, your hammer will be safer mounted on a wall, anyway. Paladin weapons are legendarily durable and powerful! They're blessed by an inhabitant spirit of justice to keep you true to the code."

Papaver Field [Mage] 320205

"Hey I don't need a guardian to tell me what to do!
Why would I ever break the code?"


Nock [Tracker] 320210

Laugh. "I don't think it will be a problem for you, but I heard about this one paladin that apparently took a cheap shot at this ogre once. Apparently she got one big blast!"

DM 320214

"It looks like you read one book on the subject then wrote a bunch of fiction and guesswork on the topic. Now run along or you'll miss morning assembly."

The students are gathering. There are still a few minutes it begins.


"Ugh. There's no glory in cheap shots or sneak attacks! That's not how a paladin should fight!"
Find a nice place to listen from.

Roll #0 1 = 1

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320220

Stick really close to Papaver

Sidus [Rogue] 320221

"It's not fiction, it's just description of events that will happen in the future when I defeat it!"

Go to the assembly.

DM 320222

You notice some empty seats and go sit down, ignoring that said seats are up on the stage and reserved for faculty members.


Hey why is everypony staring over here?
Okay maybe I should leave and go back amongst the crowd…

Roll #0 4 = 4

Nock [Tracker] 320226

"Hey, uh… You two?"

Go drag Papaver off the stage.

DM 320230

There is no real dignified way to play that off. The eyes of your fellow students stay on you as you are dragged down by Nock.
…what the hell are those girls doing up on the stage?

Papaver Field [Mage] 320233

Not enough spaghetti left to spill.
"T-thanks… That was really embarassing…"

Sidus [Rogue] 320236

Trying to take my spotlight!
Hop on stage!
Speak to the crowd!
"Are you ready for the greatness of Sidus? That's me!"

DM 320241

Rolling for amount of deadly silence

Roll #1 2 + 2 = 4

DM 320242

Not a lot. Indeed most onlookers seem confused and turn to look at you.
You have about a minute before the actual speakers arrive

Nock [Tracker] 320243

Give her a smile and pat her back. "It's okay. If anyone says anything, tell them they'll have to go through me first."

Papaver Field [Mage] 320245

Giggle up and sit somewhere near her and Star Hopper.
"Now, I don't think they all deserve a beating. Except that gut over, there, maybe…"
Point at Sidus, just now making his idiotic entrance.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320248

"I don't understand… why does he brag so much?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 320249

"Because he's insecure?"

Sidus [Rogue] 320250

"Fellow students! I, Sidus the great, have graced you all with my presence! Look at me in awe as it is I who will be the the best student out of all of you! I will surpass even the Gods themselves!"


Roll not to laugh at him.

Roll #0 2 = 2


Roll not to cause injury with the face hoof.

Roll #0 7 = 7

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320256

I droop my ears down
"I guess… I feel bad for him…"

I look at him sadly

DM 320259

Rolling to contain audience mockery

Roll #1 7 = 7

DM 320261

There is mostly an awkward silence.
Among the onlookers, there is one who believes you though.
And in the sidelines, one who sees potential.
And well above, still tirelessly checking his notes and writings, one who fears he knows that is true.

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 320262

I will just sigh.
I really hope ponies don't figure out we're roommates.

Sidus [Rogue] 320264

I grin at them.
"If anypony wants autographs or pictures of my Greatness, feel free to ask! There is plenty to go around! Get it while you can, while I still walk amongs you mortals!"

Nock [Tracker] 320267

"Hey Papaver… you visit the salad bar at breakfast? I could use a tomato."

I remark sarcastically.

DM 320270


Roll #1 7 = 7

DM 320272

'r2 1d2'

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

DM 320273

sod off

Roll #1 3 = 3

DM 320274

Thank you kindly

The instructors are arriving.
Time to clear the stage if you want no trouble

Sidus [Rogue] 320276

Okay, hop off the stage, find a seat in the first row.

Papaver Field [Mage] 320278

"Pff right. That pony's ego is so big a tomato would not be enough. I will have to take him up on his offer and humiliate him in front of everypony."

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320279

I look at her
"… Maybe he just needs a friend?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 320280

"… Okay maybe he does."

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 320281

"If you can find somepony who's got enough patience to sit with him…"

Nock [Tracker] 320284

"Sounds like a big project."

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 320286

"Would probably take several ponies. And in shifts."

DM 320290

The Councilor, Battlemaster and a few of the teachers arrive.

"Good morning everypony. I trust you all had a good night's sleep, for today is going to be a busy day.
Most importantly, today you prepare for life here in the academy. You will receive uniforms, combat training gear, basic reading material and Catalyst Bases, as well as sign up for optional courses.
Any question so far?"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320293

Keep listening

Papaver Field [Mage] 320294

Keep listening, almost holding my breath.

Nock [Tracker] 320295

Whisper to Papaver. "Back when my grandfather was here, they distributed religious icons, but now the academy is secularized. Separation of church and state or something."

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 320297

I'll stay quiet, and listen.
Guess I didn't need to wear the armor, after all…

Sidus [Rogue] 320299

"When will the fun start?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 320301

"But it makes no sense! We are here for Celestia!"
Sigh and whisper to the girls.
"And here he goes again…"

DM 320310

The battlemaster looks over
"Tomorrow. That's when Combat Training kicks off."
One of the students raises a hoof
"Are there different uniforms?"
"Yes, male and female. Not much difference beyond being shaped for maximum comfort."

"I expect all of you to have signed up by the end of this day. Those who are not will be assigned based on their entry profile. Uniforms can be picked up here after dinner. Sign ups are in my office in the tower. Combat training gear will be available at the armoury."

Papaver Field [Mage] 320313

Turn to the girls.
"Shall we go and sign up now?"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 320315

I'll raise my hoof.
"If we've brought out own equipment, should we hang on to it? Or use the school's stock?"

Sidus [Rogue] 320316

I look at him, then back at the stage.
"He has a point! I can use my far superior weapons, can't I?"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320317

I nod quickly

DM 320320

"Personal equipment is not allowed in combat training for safety reasons. You can appeal to have it inspected and approved for outings and other events though."

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 320321

I'll nod, and make a mental note to get my gear inspected.

Papaver Field [Mage] 320323

Damn. Oh well, I can still sing.

Sidus [Rogue] 320327

"What?! You must be kidding, right?!"

Wf+6 320333


I frown a bit. "Why did they even send me with this bow then? Unless…"


"I feel so stupid. He sent it with me so I'd remember home, and I just treat it like a weapon."

Nock [Tracker] 320334

DM 320335

"For the safety of all, only purpose built training weapons will be used in combat training. You may requisition for specific weapon models if the armoury does not have what you need."

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320338

"Not like I like that sword anyway…"

Papaver Field [Mage] 320340

"Hey c'mon. Don't act so down!"
Playfully nudge her.

Sidus [Rogue] 320341

"Don't you have healers for that? If my opponents cannot handle my greatness it's their fault, not mine!"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320342

I perk up

Papaver Field [Mage] 320343

Roll my eyes at her.
"You really shouldn't apologize every time."

DM 320344

"We have healers for injuries and accidents. But healing is a process we'd prefer not to force upon students if it can be avoided. Exceptions will not be made."

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320347

"Right, sorr-"
I cover my mouth with a hoof and grin sheepishly at her

Nock [Tracker] 320348

Laugh, but quietly!

Is the ceremony done other than the Q&A session? If so, we should go sign up.

Papaver Field [Mage] 320349

Giggle back at her and jab at her with one hoof again.
"You silly~"
Yep are we done with the ceremony? If so, onwards to signing up!

Sidus [Rogue] 320350

"Bah… they are just not prepared for my greatness…"

DM 320352

You may now go sign up and pick up stuff

Sidus [Rogue] 320354

Sign up!

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 320355

I'll walk with Star, Papaver, and Nock up to the sign ups.
"So, thought of what you're signing up for?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 320356

Sign up! How does the place look like? The ponies, the colors, the smells!
"Hi! I'm here to sign up for classes!"

Papaver Field [Mage] 320359

"Combat classes of course!" Flash him a smile.

Nock [Tracker] 320360

"My choice is easy. I'm going to study the Spellbreaker. In fact, I already found the books for it!"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320361

Follow her

"Uh… Spellbreakers maybe? I don't know."

DM 320364

There is a list of names here, with checkboxes for each class.
[Welcome early birds! I'm probably still busy with Q&A so please mark the desired class by your name.]
[_] Blast
[_] Word of Power
[_] Spellbreaker

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 320365

"I might be joining you."
"Go with what you think fits you. You're nice, so spellbreaking might be good. But you can't neglect defending yourself, either."

Sidus [Rogue] 320369

[X] Blast
[X] Word of Power
[_] Spellbreaker

That should do!

Papaver Field [Mage] 320372

That's easy!

[X] Blast!

DM 320373

Well done on being too stupid to understand the number "one"

Nock [Tracker] 320376

[_] Blast
[_] Word of Power
[X] Spellbreaker

Mark it with gusto!

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 320379

[X] Blast
[_] Word of Power
[_] Spellbreaker
That should do it.

Sidus [Rogue] 320380

Pfff, my greatness can handle two with ease!

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320383

I grit my teeth, considering my options, then mqrk the last option.
[_] Blast
[_] Word of Power
[X] Spellbreaker

"At least it's magic… kind of."

DM 320384

However, your time management cannot

Sidus [Rogue] 320387

Is that a challenge?

DM 320389

No, it's a guideline

Nock [Tracker] 320392

"Good choice! It'll give us some time to practice together, and I won't mind having someone I know around."

Give her a big grin. This will be great! As long as she doesn't have an accident while we're sparring.

Papaver Field [Mage] 320393

"Aww… We won't be in the same class.."
Look sad.

Nock [Tracker] 320395

'Yeah, but it looks like you're in a class with your special friend from this morning, right?"

Sidus [Rogue] 320396

Bah, Word of Power then

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320397

"There's still the other classes… right?"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 320398

"There are still the mandatory classes. Might be together in those."


Blush furiously and look away.

Roll #0 4 = 4

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 320405

'1d10' to not blush.

Roll #1 6 = 6

DM 320416

You two could open a restaurant at this rate…
You blot out the mark on Blast.

With that done, you still have Uniforms and Combat Gear to pick up. Though the Uniforms will not be available until after dinner.

Sidus [Rogue] 320417

Check the Combat Gear thingy.

Papaver Field [Mage] 320419

Start moving on.

"So… Uhm… Should we go? Yeah, we totally better go take our gear, girls!"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 320421

"I'll just, uhm… library. Yes. Library."

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320422

Dinner? When is that!?

Agh… no. Concentrate. Go pick up gear with Papaver

Papaver Field [Mage] 320424

"Yeah exactly! You library, we gear! Right!"


Good thing my coat can't get any redder.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320430

"A-are you okay?"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 320432

And, with a face you could probably cook an egg on, I'll hit the library.

Papaver Field [Mage] 320436

"It's- It's all Nock's fault!"
Blush again and keep going.

Nock [Tracker] 320440

Chuckle a little. "I seem to recall I was the one pulling you off of him this morning. You two sure are eager to make friends. I thought I was outgoing!"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320442

I just look at them confusedly

DM 320444

Later today. I guess they need some time to get the uniforms ready.
You hurry along to the armoury
You get a strange feeling you are being watched…
Welcome to the library. The cold shower of the mind.
What are you looking for?

Papaver Field [Mage] 320447

"Noooo! It's nothing like that! I just wanted to see that book!"
SO! Uniforms! What do they have?

Sidus [Rogue] 320448

Look around!
What do my heightened senses tell me?

Roll #1 7 = 7

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 320453

Just that. I realize that I could actually go get my gear inspected.
…They never actually mentioned where, did they?
"It's not at the combat fields… is it?"
Regardless, I'll just sit down with a book for a little bit. Give the girls time to pick up their gear. Who knew hanging around mares would be so awkward.
'1d10' to find a book on, let's say… swords.

Roll #1 6 = 6

Nock [Tracker] 320458

"They only have two kinds of uniforms, mare and stallion, and they're not ready yet. We should go get our gear inspected. I just let you use uniforms as a bad excuse to escape."

DM 320462

They will be ready later this day.
Someone is following you…
[The Sword: Phallic Symbol or Not? - By Overt Inking]

Papaver Field [Mage] 320464

Give a distressed and defeated expression.
"It was just so awkward!
Argh… Yeah let's go. I wanna show them my hammer…"
Give her a smile.

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 320466


Slowly put the book back on the shelf.
Sighing, I'll make my way to the combat fields.

Sidus [Rogue] 320473

Turn around and point out a hoof.
"Hah! I'm too good to not notice I'm being followed!
Who are you?!"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320477

Follow her, taking a closer look at my sword for the first time since I got it.

Papaver Field [Mage] 320487

Look at her contemplate.
"Is that from your family?"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320489

I nod skittishly
"I never even used it. Mom gave it to me for my birthday. She's… uh… different when it comes to stuff like this."

DM 320495

Looks like some decent looking unicorn girl
She stops in her tracks and recoils back
"AAh! How did you…?"
The Combat Gear can be picked up at the armoury
Looks like a lot of ponies are headed to pick up the Combat Gear from the armoury.

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 320500

Well, the chances of running into the girls is pretty low, right? '1d10' I can get my gear inspected and they won't even know I'm here. Can I see if there are any instructors who are checking equipment that recruits are bringing them? 'r2 1d10'

Roll #1 5 = 5 / Roll #2 3 = 3

Sidus [Rogue] 320501

I let out a victorious laugh.
"Haha! Did you really think my greatness could be sneaked upon?! I am faaaaaaar better than that!"

Papaver Field [Mage] 320502

But I don't want new gear! I want them to inspect my hammer!
Cock my head.

Nock [Tracker] 320510

Follow them to get gear and weapon inspected.

Stepping out a bit, but not gone for good!

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320512

Go there then!

"… I already told you. She's an inquisitor. She just has… extreme views on stuff sometimes."

Papaver Field [Mage] 320515

"And she gave you the sword because she wanted you to become an Inquisitor too?"

DM 320517

You should ask the combat instructors here for info.
The assistants at the armoury call you over
"Size of armour and preferred weapon?"

Roll #1 2 = 2

Papaver Field [Mage] 320521

Okaaay let's get there.
"Hi… We are here for the gears."

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320523

"No… she never really pushed anywhere too particular, really. As long as I did divine work, she was happy I guess."
I pause
"I don't think I'd make for a very good inquisitor…"

"Uh… Uh…"
I stammer a little
"I-I don't know?"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 320525

DM 320526

She looks rather spooked and a little put off
"A-ah… yes… heh…
…sorry. I guess I should be… going… now."
"Combat gear can be claimed at the armoury. If you want existing gear approved, speak with the Battlemaster in the combat fields"
"Then come back when you do. NEXT!"
Looks like the Battlemaster is doing the inspections.

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 320528

I'll head over to the Battlemaster, then.
Is there a line? '1d10'

Roll #1 4 = 4

Papaver Field [Mage] 320530

"Hey Star, where do you want to go first? We should ask the Battlemaster to inspect our weapons before taking new stuff from the armory."

Sidus [Rogue] 320532

Give her a cross look but then grin.
"…you did not think of just walking away without getting a signed picture of my greatness, did you?"
And chuckle.

Nock 320534

"What are the restrictions on personal weapons? I'm carrying a family bow."

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320539

"… I guess? Lead the way."

Papaver Field [Mage] 320544


Nock 320545

"Hopefully he's not too caught up in speech again."

DM 320547

Not really. but there are some familiar faces closing in.
Oh hey is that Jonagold going to the Battlemaster?
"No personal weapons are allowed in combat training. Approved ones can be used on outings and missions."

Roll #1 3 = 3

Papaver Field [Mage] 320548

"We'll just have to wait. Or you can tell him about your parents and see if he knows them!"

Papaver Field [Mage] 320552

Hide behind Nock!

DM 320553

She hesitates and shakes her head
"…I'm not worth it…"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 320554

Oh fiddlebiscuits.
I'll wave at them a little weakly, and stay in line.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320562

Just wait patiently in line…

Sidus [Rogue] 320563

Jump next to her and put a hoof around her shoulder.
"Hah, I know that my greatness is hard to handle for some ponies! Even I had trouble looking in the mirror for a while, because I would see myself, and how great I am, and I thought that I am unworthy of seeing such a pefrect being! Then I got better than myself, and managed to look and my greatness! Can you become better than yourself to be worthy for my greatness?"

DM 320564

"Ok, NEXT!"

Roll #1 9 - 1 = 8

DM 320565

She blushes a little
"I'd like to…"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 320566

"Jonagold Apple, sir. Checking in my gear to see if it passes inspection."

Papaver Field [Mage] 320568

Okay let's keep waiting.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320569

"S-star Hopper, sir. I uh…"
Show him the sword and look away

Sidus [Rogue] 320570

I let out a laugh.
"Then you can have this!"
Give her a picture of myself.
"You earned it!"

DM 320572

"Very good. Please present your gear."
"And why are you presenting this for inspection?"
She hugs the picture a little, smiles and puts it in her pocket
"You're kinda special you know…"

Sidus [Rogue] 320573

"Of course I know! I am the pony destined to be better than the gods themselves!"

Papaver Field [Mage] 320574

Okay let's show the battlemaster my hammer too.
"Papaver Field sir. I'd like you to inspect this hammer."

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 320575

I'll present my sword and shield.
"The armor goes with it, and I wasn't sure if I needed to wear it today, so…"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320576

I gulp
"I… just want you to inspect it?"

Nock 320580

"And my bow."

DM 320581

"Right. Any particular reason you want to keep these?"
"Well it seems well enough made and decently balanced. Are you skilled with it? Would you like a replica made for practice purposes?"

Roll #1 2 = 2

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 320582

"Mostly sentimental, sir. But they're sturdy, and I am familiar with them."

Papaver Field [Mage] 320585

"Because… My family gave it to me to follow the tradition!"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320586

I wipe my forehead
"Well… it was a present to me. Just… for sentimentality?"

Nock 320587

"Family heirloom. It has been passed down by academy paladins for generations. The last bearer was Spell Seeker, if you remember him?"

DM 320596

"Sentimentality has no real value in battle. Unless you intend to use them to make a personal catalyst."
"Spell Seeker? The Inquisitor?"
She bites her lip and awkwardly moves her hooves

Nock 320600


Star Hopper [Cleric] 320603

I sigh
"… can I just send it back home then?"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 320604

I'll nod.
"Even so, sir, I would still like to keep them. To do honor to the one who used them before me."

Papaver Field [Mage] 320607

"Cat- NO! We are all brawlers in my family! Imagine the shame!
All brawlers, always fought with hammers!"

Sidus [Rogue] 320614

"Now… my highness was about to visit the armory or what not, to tell them how far much better my weapons are, before I discovered you sneaking up on me… but I can see that you are a fan of me, so I might, might allow you to accompany me!"

DM 320626

"Are you skilled with using them?"
"Certainly. Though you can also keep it as decoration."
"Well I don't really train Inquisitors. I'm a Paladin Battlemaster, not a witch hunter. Though Glossy Wards the Antimagic trainer might know more details on that, given his background."
She looks a little starstruck, then nods eagerly
"C-can we hold hooves?"


"Sure am!"
Take a pose.

Roll #0 2 = 2

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 320631

"I'm mostly self-taught, sir, so I'll leave that up to your judgement."

Sidus [Rogue] 320634

"Hah! You are a cheeky and brave one, aren't you? Do you think you can handle prolonged contact with the hooves of somepony as great as myself?"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320642

I shrug
"I'll just do that then, I guess."
Pick up the sword and sheathe it again.

DM 320648

"Mhm. You look like you could barely hold a weapon. And even if you could you had no idea how to actually use it. Quit the posing this isn't some storybook."
"Well it's a start. If you feel the weight and balance are right for you, take it to the smith and ask for a replica to be made. Equipment approved."
"I sure hope so…
…at least… well…
…sorry. My mind is wandering."
"Right. If that was all, head to the armoury for your things."

Papaver Field [Mage] 320652

"Y-yes sir!"
Get back in shape. Damn that was goofy.
"But… I can still use it, right?"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320653

Wait for Nock and Papaver to leave, then follow them

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 320655

"Thank you, sir."
I'll gather my gear, and start to head towards the smithy.
"See you three later, then."

Sidus [Rogue] 320659

Extend a hoof towards her with a grin.
"Just to show you how generous my greatness is. Come on, don't keep me waiting!"


"Y-yeah! Seee you later!"
Wave at him.
Try not to be too awkward.

Roll #0 10 = 10

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320663

Give him a awkward little smile and wave, then turn and quickly run after Papaver

Papaver Field [Mage] 320665

I'm still talking with the Battlemaster.

DM 320666

"If you feel it is good for you in size and weight, ask for a replica. I don't know what the strings are for though. They look ridiculous."
That wasn't awkward at all! It was downright smooth!
There is no line right now.
"NEXT! Armour size and preferred weapon?"

Roll #1 2 = 2

Nock 320669

"Is the bow approved, sir?"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 320670

"I just came from the Battlemaster, who approved my equipment. He said to ask you for a replica of this sword, sir."

DM 320673

The blushes, looks around, squeaks a little, and shakily grabs the hoof, then immediately pulls you into a hug
"Is there anything particular to it beyond sentimental value?"
He looks it over
"Right. I can have it ready for tomorrow.
Now what is your armour size?"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 320677

"I've, uh… never been properly measured, I think. But this armor fits, so… just give me a second…"
I'll shuck out of the armor and present it to him.
"So it's this size."

Sidus [Rogue] 320678

I chuckle, hug and pat her on the back, but then pull away.
"We'll never get there like this! You don't want my greatness to seem slow, do you?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 320681

Bite my lower lip.
He can't understand…
"Hey girls, should we go to the armory now?"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320683

I nod
"That would be nice… I'd really like to take some time to read my books after this."

Papaver Field [Mage] 320686

Nod and make my way there with her.

Nock 320691

"Besides being trained on it, no. I would want a replica of similar draw strength and weight if I cannot use it, sir."

DM 320695

"…sorry about that.
Right. Let's um… go."
"Basic Large then. That pile over there. Take one of everything and report back in the morning for the weapon. NEXT!"
The smith looks you over
"Weapon preference and armour size?"
"Ask the smith for one then. If you're used to the bow, then it is approved."

Sidus [Rogue] 320696

Let's get going!

Papaver Field [Mage] 320697

"Hammer. And medium. I guess. I'm not chubby, am I?"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 320698

Instead of taking the time to put the armor back on, I'll just set it over my back, then grab one of the extra suits that the Smith indicated.
I'll wave to the others on my way out.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320699

"Sword. Uh… I'm not sure about size… medium?"
On a scale of thin to chubby, how am I? '1d10'

Roll #1 7 = 7

DM 320706

Would you like to get your gear approved or pick up new gear?
"Hammer. Check the racks over yonder. And Medium armour is that pile there."
"Swords are next to the daggers there. Medium armour is in that same pile there. Medium Large might be more your size."

Nock [Tracker] 320707


Trail off after them!

"I'll take a medium, too. And a crossbow, if you can, sir."

Sidus [Rogue] 320712

My weapons need to be apporved of course!


Nod to the smith and go there.
Does my eye fall on the longswords, by any chance?

Roll #0 7 = 7

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320727

Slightly heavier than average then

I cringe slightly but nod anyway.
"Okay… Large medium then."
Pick out a broadsword and a piece of fitting armor '1d10'

Roll #1 7 = 7

DM 320733

"Crossbows are in the ranged weapon shelves over there."
Talk to the Battlemaster then.
Yes it does.
It fits well enough. With a little modifying it'll be very comfy and fitting.

Sidus [Rogue] 320735

Find him!

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 320738

I'll head up to the dorm room to drop off the two suits of armor. Once there, I'll try on the suit I got from the smith. How's it fit? '1d10'

Roll #1 5 = 5

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320743

Can I ask the smith to do that?


Yeah right. I'll use one the day I leave everything my family taught me behind.
The day i use magic and not the honorable power of the earth ponies, that day I will use a sword instead of a hammer.

But I could always try one, right?
How does it feel?

Roll #0 10 = 10

Nock [Tracker] 320750

Pick up a crossbow and equip my armor.

"What's next on the menu?"

DM 320753

Not like it's hard.
"Here to get a weapon approved?"
Your pal shakes her head
"Not me."
Needs some adjusting. Fiddle with the straps and padding to make it comfy.
You can adjust the straps and add some padding yourself.
Like it was your very destiny to wield it.
This weapon is like a song forged of iron. It sings to you with every swing, conducting a symphony of battle, with the fields of glory as your orchestra.
The smith looks at you
"Well you seemed to get here nice and early so you still have plenty of time to sign up for classes before dinner."

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 320755

I shall fiddle with them. '1d10'

Roll #1 7 = 7

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320756

Try to do that and put it on '1d10'

"Uh… I'd just like to read some more books. And then watch the stars again this evening…"

Roll #1 10 = 10

Sidus [Rogue] 320757

"I am! I want to keep both of my weapons! They are not like anything you could possibly have here!"

Nock [Tracker] 320760

Give her a smile. "If it's that good, maybe I should join you tonight… If I'm welcome, that is."

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320762

"… yeah! It's uh… really nice! Of course you can join!"


But… Everything my parents taught me…
The whole reason I came here…

Not like I can use the hammer anyway, right?
Take the sword and a set of armor, than go back to the others.
"Hey. You girls done?"
Try to conceal the greatsword as best as I can.

Roll #0 4 = 4

DM 320768

It fits well now. A very solid fit.
Not only does it fit perfectly, it downright complements your form.
It looks iconic on you.
"Well lets see them then."
There is no way to conceal that.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320770

I nod.
"I think so. Armor and sword… both really heavy. You got a sword too? Just a longer one?"


"Yeah it… It felt alright so I thought I'd try it…"
Okay, then try to conceal the guilt!

Roll #0 4 = 4

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 320774

I'll smile at that. Starting to look like a real paladin.
…How long before dinner?

DM 320777

There is no way to conceal that.
A few hours

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 320780

Well, might as well hit the library, then. Get an early start on things.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320782

"… what's wrong? You don't like it? That's okay, neither do I really. It's… heavy."

Nock [Tracker] 320783

"I'm ready to go, Papaver! You getting a sword? I thought you wanted a hammer."

Papaver Field [Mage] 320785

Is it time to take the uniforms yet?
"No that's not it… I like it. That's the problem."
"Yeah… But… I just felt so good while holding this…
My parents will kill me…"

Sidus [Rogue] 320787

Levitate up my chained kamas/kusarigamas and my foldable Glaive/sword

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320788

I cock my head
"Why… why is liking it so bad? Isn't that good?"

Nock [Tracker] 320789

I scrunch. "I know that feeling. Honestly, I've questioned the path of the Inquisitors, before. Keep the sword. Learn to use both!"

Papaver Field [Mage] 320792

"There is a reason they gave me a hammer…"
Sigh and hang my head low.
"Wish I could… Me using a sword will hit my parents as hard as me using magic, really."

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320793

I look at my own sword, then at my horn.
"Wow… your parents wouldn't like me at all then…"

DM 320794

What might you want to read?
There is a couple of hours to waste until dinner
"…What the crap are these? Farming tools? You some kind of florist, boy?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 320795

"Don't be silly, they like mages. It's just, all the mares in my family have been brawlers. And used hammers."

Sidus [Rogue] 320797

"What? You don't know what kusarigamas are? Or are you challenging me to farm you with them? How come the ones responsible for weapons here can't even recognize truly great weapons?"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 320798

Well, let's take a look for a book on Blast arts and combat techniques. '1d10'

Roll #1 8 = 8

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320799

Unsure how to respond to that, I just look at her awkwardly
"Uh… I'm sorry? No! I'm not sorry! I mean I am but… I don't need to tell you that… Uh… m-maybe you could just use both? Only use your sword when your parents aren't around?"

Nock [Tracker] 320801

"I think Star is right. You should learn to use both! Show them you can be a brawler and MORE!"

DM 320803

"You're a hothead aren't you?
Well, what's so special about your sickles and folding stick?"
[Know Your Foes to Lessen Woes - By Clever Rhymes]

Papaver Field [Mage] 320804

Give her a kind smile.
"You don't have to worry that much for me. It'll be fine. I think."
Try to hug her.
"But thanks."
"Yeah. Yeah I should."

"So, where should we go?"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 320809

…Please don't be a book full of rhymes. '1d10'
I'll take it and start reading at one of the nearby tables.

Roll #1 1 = 1

Nock [Tracker] 320810

"Well, Star wants to go read some boring books again, but I guess I can be hospitable for just one more night. There will be a whole semester to study, though!"

Sidus [Rogue] 320811

"I would show you but then you would yap about me hurting you!"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320815

I try to return the hug non-awkwardly '1d10'

"Boring boo- they're not boring!"

Roll #1 8 = 8

Papaver Field [Mage] 320820

Chuckle, then let go of the hug.
"Well they are not as cool as combat training! But yeah, let's go for the library. I wanna see what's so fun about them."

DM 320822

It's a book about combat techniques and philosophy, written in rhyme.
"A brief explanation should be well enough unless you happen to lack the vocabulary for it.
Are you deeply trained with them?"

Nock [Tracker] 320826

"I think you should consider learning from someone else. But if you're going to be in Spellbreaking, I found all the books for the class yesterday and checked them out. We could share, and maybe I can help. I learn better helping teach others anyway."

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 320827

"Why would they even…"
I'll sigh. Maybe the rhymes will make it easier to remember what's in here?
Start reading, I guess. '1d10' for comprehension.

Roll #1 5 = 5

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320836

I huff and lead the way to the library as confidently as I can '1d10'

"That would be nice…"

Roll #1 3 = 3

Sidus [Rogue] 320837

I take one kama in a hoof and spin around the other with my tk.
"Of course I am deeply trained with them! The kamas are well suited for close quarter combat while the chain makes me able to use it as a kusarigama and hit foes far away, either with the sharp blade of the kama on the other end or just disarm them with the chain!"

After that, I put the away, and get out the sword.
"I can fence with this blade in case I come across somepony who is good at fencing… not as good as my greatness of course… and if I find myself against multiple opponents-"
Slip out the handle and make it a glaive.
"-This makes my greatness able to achieve victory by both keeping them at bay or just allowing me to dispatch them at once!"

Nock [Tracker] 320853

Let me correct that route a little.

"It'll be fun! Even if it involves a bunch of reading."

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320856

"But reading is fun!"

Nock [Tracker] 320860

Exaggerated laugh. "Good one."

Papaver Field [Mage] 320864

Roll my eyes.
"Right. You know what is fun? Singing, that's fun!"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320868

I scowl at the both of them but say nothing more

DM 320869

You realize there is a plain text version available and change to it
[-the theory of Favored Foes states that a warrior who has particular animosity towards and/or vast knowledge of a specific foe can make them far more efficient against that foe.]
Oh hey look, Jonagold is here too!
"Well well. Trained in multiple weapon types.
Alright. Approved! I like your can-do attitude. Ask the smith for replicas and keep those for outings. Dismissed!"
He has a pleased smile on his face. Looks like you did well.


Keep following her and hum a small tune.

Sidus [Rogue] 320876

I grin.
Of course I did well!

Head to the smith, but glane back at my follower.
She's still there, right?

"Well? Any praise about how great I am?"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320877

I'm on a mission right now! To show these two that reading can be fun! Find the most informative and fun to read book in this library! '1d10'

Roll #1 10 = 10

DM 320893

This tune will echo down history to the beat of marching hooves. These words will strike fear into the hearts of foes and pride into the hearts of Equestrians. Not only does it provide the perfect allegory for the paladin code and way of thinking, but also for the glory of Equestria and the Sun.
And though its origins may be lost to time, its meanings will carry on into the end of ages.
For all who hear the Honor March of Equestria will tremble. Be it from fear. Or pride.
[-though as a downside this often limits the fighter's abilities when facing other foes-]
She has a rather dreamy look in her eyes and a goofy smile, but says nothing.

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 320901

I'll look up from the book for a moment.

Take one of them.

Roll #1 2 = 2

Papaver Field [Mage] 320913

Second book, tell me your secrets.

Nock [Tracker] 320915

I blush slightly, looking at the one she's selected.

"Um… is that what I think it is?"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320919

"What is-"
I look at the title. Does it dawn on me? '1d10'

Roll #1 6 = 6

Papaver Field [Mage] 320924

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320926

My eyes widen in realization
"Oh… OH!"
I blush ferociously, looking away
"Uh… m-m-maybe? I… uh… I didn't mean to pick that one! H-honest!"

Sidus [Rogue] 320927

"This is my preference!"

Show him my weapons.

"And armor just slows my greatness down!"

DM 320928

"…medium small."
"Great weapons are over there and medium small is in that pile. What about you, the other one?"
maybe they like you
This is a guide to party part usage. A comprehensive one by the looks of it.

Sidus [Rogue] 320931

"Other one? Don't you see that I am Sidus? The one and only?"

DM 320932

"So replicas are needed. Very well, hoof them over.
Then go get a medium suit from the pile. Armour is mandatory for training."

Papaver Field [Mage] 320933

"Why!? What is that?!"
"STAR! That's your idea of fun?"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320935

Reluctantly hand them over.

Papaver Field [Mage] 320940

Bonk her on the head with the book.
"Where you trying to suggest something?"
Then, read from it.
How does this thing work with mares?


Try to kind of covertly look over her shoulder.

I-I'm not interested in it I swear!

Papaver Field [Mage] 320949

"Too bad now you've made me curious!"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 320952

I groan and cover my face with my hooves, still blushing ferociously

DM 320975

"You are meat and bone and sensitive skin and you will wear armour just like every other cocky blowhard before you. You can pick up your safe to use versions in the morning. Dismissed."
Nock decides to help by reading out loud.
[-It is unknown where the euphemism Party Parts began, but it is a widespread term for genitals in society, seen as more socially acceptable. However, most ponies still prefer to keep things in the bedroom, and wear at least some level of clothing to cover up, even if there are groups who advocate the benefits of nudity. Then, some groups also advocate the benefits of laying on your back during intercourse as opposed to the more common method of mounting, and some even suggest having the stallion lay down instead. This is of course not even going into same-sex positions such as-]
[-at the core of this philosophy of combat lies the Blast technique. It involves channeling power into a blow, drawing strength from your will to defeat a preferred foe. Old text make reference to the Judgement technique as well, but the use of that has been lost to time-]

Well on that note, I'll assume a 6 isn't enough to pull myself away. Onward to knowledge!

Keep reading aloud to the group.

And keep listening, I guess. I might have lost my spaghetti but not my interest.

Well, CAN YOU?
[-Due to Equestria's rather unique mare-to-stallion ratio, mare on mare relations both sexual and otherwise have been documented, observed and researched. Many have asked the question "how does that even work?". Well, the easiest answer is usually "with tools".

Stallion on Stallion action is not nearly as common, and is seen as something of a forbidden fruit by many-]

Nope. I'm out. I'm not even putting my book back. Heading to the dinner hall.

No second-year uniform for me, then. I'll thank them for the uniform, and then head up to the dorms to put it away. I might as well drop off this armor up there, too. Wearing it around everywhere has got to look funny.

Papaver Field [Mage] 321108

"O-oh. Okay…"
Pick myself up and go for the dinner hall.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 321111

"Wha-what!? N-no! These are for my healing studies!"

"No! This book is to study how to heal ponies!"

Sidus [Rogue] 321113

Okay, let's find my challenger from yester-waaait, just one more thing.

Turn around and face her.
"I don't think you told me your name yet? My greatness must know the name of my number one fan!"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 321115

…It might be a little awkward to go to dinner naked, though, especially if I run into those three mares again. Especially after they were reading that book.
I'll put on my travel outfit, and head back down to the dining hall.

Nock [Tracker] 321118

Too late! We've shut the door to leave you with your books for a precious few seconds of ecstasy!

Can we get into the mess hall yet? Look around for Jon. '1d10'

Roll #1 7 = 7

Papaver Field [Mage] 321122

"N-no is fine. Not like we have to stick together all time…"
Give a forced laughter.
"We… We are going to dinner. Yeah. See you there."
Stick with her.
"What are you looking for?"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 321126


Roll #1 7 = 7

Star Hopper [Cleric] 321127

I run after them
"W-wait! Please! I'm not some weirdo!"

Nock [Tracker] 321128

"I'm looking for your friend from earlier! I was playing with you before – you don't seem the type to throw yourself at a stallion. Do you like him, though – as a friend? I figured we could use some company."

Papaver Field [Mage] 321130

"Please this day has been embarassing enough! Did you see how he looked at me? I mean, he was more than a bit interested and I'm not sure I want the same."

Nock [Tracker] 321132

Give her the grin.

"Fair enough. No macho stallion to take a dive onto. Let's go get some grub."

Wave at her as she catches up.

"Just in time, Star! You finished 'reading' fast!"

DM 321133

"…you can call me anything you like~"
Looks like dinner is almost ready to be served. Stick around and you'll be first in line!
Looks like they beat you here.



Roll #0 8 = 8

Sidus [Rogue] 321135

I laugh.
"That's nice! …but just to show you how generous my greatness is, what do you want me to call you?"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 321136

Ah jeez. They're right in front of the door, too, aren't they? '1d10'

Roll #1 3 = 3

Papaver Field [Mage] 321137

Nod and wait for the food.
Also, do I get what she just told Star?
Give her a big, happy smile.

Roll #1 9 = 9

Star Hopper [Cleric] 321139

I frown and stomp a hoof on the floor
"Quit being a bully! I didn't do anything! I-I-I was just busy reading about medical stuff!"

DM 321142

Oh yes.
Yes you do.
There is no escape.
"Sundefeated. Well, that's what I'd like to be called anyway… see it's like the sun and undefeated and now I'm rambling and you probably think I'm stupid don't you?"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 321144

Well, time to bite the bullet. I'll approach the door.
"Well, you three are here early."


"C'mon I'm sure she didn't mean it in a bad way!
We totally know you are not into that kind of things!"
Chuckle and try not to sound too awkward.

Roll #0 6 = 6

Sidus [Rogue] 321147

I shake my head.
"Of course you are not stupid! But you can't be called like that if you are going to be my number one fan! It sounds like Sun-defeated. Defeat. …hmmm… What do you think of Sunglorious?"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 321152

I just look at her sadly

Nock [Tracker] 321156

"Yeah, come on, Star, lighten up. I'm just trying to get you to enjoy yourself and stop feeling so reserved. Maybe I'm making things worse with the teasing. I'm sorry. Do you forgive me?"


Walk over to her and give her shoulder a nudge with mine.
"Let's eat something and go back to our room, so you can show us the fun of reading."

Roll #0 5 = 5

DM 321161

"That kinda sounds like Vainglorious. You know what just call me Burning Heart since that is my name and all."

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 321162

Well, they seem to be ignoring me, so I'll just quietly go past them into the dining hall… '1d10'

Roll #1 3 = 3

Sidus [Rogue] 321164

"Burning Heart… I like that! It's passionate! Just like my greatness! Now, let's find that filly that challenged me, shall we?"

Find her!

Star Hopper [Cleric] 321165

"We've known each other for just two days… I never really… had friends before. I-I don't want to be embarrassed like that. That's not fun."

"Hmph, you think reading is boring and dull anyway."

Nock [Tracker] 321166

Give a sympathetic frown and hug her.

"That's terrible! Even I had friends at my father's compound. I'll lay off, okay? And for the record, those books you picked out did look fun."

DM 321168

You awkwardly push through them to get inside.
Looks like they are at the dining hall.

Papaver Field [Mage] 321169

"Dull? After those books? No way girl! We are going back to our room and we'll read them all!"
Give her a big smile.

Star Hopper [Cleric] 321170

"… okay then, fine. Can we… eat now? I'm hungry."


"You sure like eating a lot!"
Chuckle and go take out food!

Roll #0 3 = 3

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 321172

Oh geez.
"I'm sorry."
And then I'll just go stand in, or start, the line.


Can I rustle up anything good tasting?

Roll #0 9 = 9

Sidus [Rogue] 321174

"Hey! You there! We have a duel to fight, don't we?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 321175

"What? Oh, that? Seriously?"

Sidus [Rogue] 321176

"You thought my greatness could forget something like you belittling me?"

Star Hopper [Cleric] 321177

"Well… maybe."
Start gathering a meal '1d10'

Roll #1 3 = 3

Papaver Field [Mage] 321178

"Yeah, okay. It's too late now! We were kinda busy all day, you know!"

Sidus [Rogue] 321179

"Why? Can't we do it after dinner?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 321181

"Nope. I promised my friends I'd spend the evening with them! No way I'm wasting it like that!"

Nock [Tracker] 321183

"We have stuff to do. Besides, if you're so great, surely your magnanimity allows you the luxury of forgiving petty insults, right?"

Papaver Field [Mage] 321184

Whisper to her.
"I kinda want to knock this dude down a notch or two…"

Sidus [Rogue] 321185

I laugh.
"Do you yield then?"

"She challenged me!"

Papaver Field [Mage] 321189

Roll my eyes.
"There would be no crowd to see my victory tonight!"

DM 321190

Well at least Nock realized the dark stew was actually delicious as fuck

Nock [Tracker] 321192

"Fine, just get rid of him for the night. Food's getting cold, and I think food cheers Star up."


Nod eagerly at her with a little smile.
I'll have to get used to shitty food in this place, uh?
Okay let's see how much I can enjoy this.

Roll #0 2 = 2

Sidus [Rogue] 321195

"Was that a yes?"

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 321197

I'll get a helping of that, along with some fruit, and some bread if there is any. Then I'll join the others at their table.
After that, I'll dig in.
'1d10' for enjoyment.

Roll #1 5 = 5

Papaver Field [Mage] 321198

"That was a no. Tomorrow I'll take care of you."
Go to my table with the other girls and eat.


Let's see how much I enjoy it.

I give her a thankful smile

Roll #0 5 = 5

Sidus [Rogue] 321204

Turn to Heart
"Hah! See! The mere greatness of my presence made her back away from the very challenge she sought after!"

DM 321205

Not at all.
The night is ruined.
The atmosphere is a little awkward.


This damn food.
Try to ignore him.

Roll #0 10 = 10

Nock [Tracker] 321207

Dig into my delicious stew.

Offer some of it to the poor unfortunate souls.

Papaver Field [Mage] 321208

My jimmies are eternal.

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 321209

"…So… get fitted for gear already?"
Of course they did, you lummox.


But… but… food! Food fixes all!

Roll #0 5 = 5


Thank her and take a small bite.
"Still gotta pick up the uniform!"

Roll #0 3 = 3

DM 321212

"You really are every bit as amazing as you say you are~ Want me to get us food?"
You remove him from your understanding of the world. He exists to you only when you permit it.
Well… I guess it does. Take a 6 on that.



Roll #0 2 = 2

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 321215

Oh dear. I don't see this coming at all, do I? '1d10'

Roll #1 8 = 8

Sidus [Rogue] 321218

I grin.
"You want to serve me my food! Go ahead! Don't make me wait too long!"

Is there a seat open next to my roommate and his friends?

DM 321220

Why don't you ask them?
Heart returns soon with two trays held in telekinesis.

Sidus [Rogue] 321226

There's always room for my greatness!
Make way for Heart too and sit down next to them.

Give a thankful look for her for the food as well!

DM 321230

Rolling for quality of meal she picked up

Roll #1 10 = 10

Papaver Field [Mage] 321232

I suppose we are done eating?

DM 321237

There is still dessert.




Roll #0 6 = 6

Sidus [Rogue] 321242

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 321243

Dessert's always good, right? Let's get some dessert. '1d10'

Roll #1 6 = 6



Roll #0 1 = 1

Nock [Tracker] 321250

"Uh, Papaver, I don't think they're serving Manesian Mud Pie tonight. Is that… real mud?"

'1d10' to discern true dessert.

Roll #1 7 = 7

DM 321260

It's fucking awesome is what it is!
It has like… EVERYTHING.
I bed she actually made that topping herself.
Looks like apple crumble with vanilla sauce
You trip over your legs and slam headfirst into…
Everyone else roll.
The lowers suffers the consequences.

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 321261

Oh. Boy.

Roll #1 6 = 6


Oh god

Roll #0 1 = 1

Sidus [Rogue] 321268

If that includes me here it is '1d10'

I grin.
"Sweet! Heart, this is great! You even managed to amaze my greatness!"

Dig in!

Roll #1 1 = 1


Oh. Girl.

Roll #0 2 = 2

DM 321278

Roll for damage.
Roll for damage. +2 to roll.
Please stand by


There comes a time when a young mare has to put her survival skills to the test.

This is that time.

Roll #0 3 + 2 = 5

Sidus [Rogue] 321283

Oh shit son

Roll #1 3 = 3

DM 321299

You got away with the least of it.
As Papaver falls, she pushes you, sending you tumbling into a nearby table.
You are less lucky, however, as the slipped hoof hits you in a rather sensitive spot, making you instinctively jackknife in half, slamming your face in your food.
And finally, she falls over and digs in. Right into your mareparts. Face first.
In the middle of the dining hall.


Oh Celestia please, guide me in these times of darkness.
Get the fuck out of this situation. Run!

Roll #0 2 = 2

Jonagold [Male Earth Pony Knight] 321302

I can't look. But I can't look away. There's no way I can look away from that.


I uh… I'm going to need a spaghetti roll here, RNG

Roll #0 9 = 9

Sidus [Rogue] 321307

Escape artist!
Somepony as great as me can handle that pain, even if it was a cheap shot like that!

Turn around to face her.
"Is that how you play?! Trying to get me while I'm distracted and trying to hit me where I am most vulnerable, you honorless wretch?! Do you think this can save you from the wrath of my greatness?"

DM 321310
