GAME INFO: Last time, the dig dogs were unaware of the snakes surrounding the Grand Chamber. Rover had them bring down some fort building supplies so that he could secure the location. Knowing of the impending danger surrounding the chambers, Rover has merely ordered a temporary fall back while they focus their efforts on securing the volcano.>>378355>>378357>>378358
You look down at the cage, then over to Rover. "Seriously?"
"Yes seriously! GET IN!" The Diamond Dog stamps his foot and throws a single claw toward the small, blue crystalline prison. The cramped cage looks like it can barely accommodate a rabbit, much less a filly.>>378360
"Look, I didn't fight not getting any treasure, and I'm willing to go with you. But I draw the line at the cage. Your big friend looks like he'd have no trouble carrying me though."
Rocky nods. "I can carry. Can you hold on?"
"What?! No! You get in the cage, pony!" Rover jumps as he hears the sound of mechanical sputtering echo in from up above.
"See? We're sitting ducks down here! That's probably the guards right now!"
Scootaloo looks over to Sweetie Belle in amazement, then to Applebloom. "Reinforcements? Did she plan this entire thing?!" An excited giggle escapes Scootaloo's mouth.
"QUIET!" Rover snaps. He points at you, jumping up and down in place. "Rocky! Grab her and stuff her inside! We don't have any time!"
Rocky reaches down, then hesitates. "She killed biggest snake…" His paw shakes for a moment, then rests on the ground.
"Why not just let your handsome friend here carry me up?" You lean up against Rocky's arm. Though you know it won't give, it still surprises you just how strong the dog really is. He doesn't so much as budge under your full weight.
Rover grits his teeth, then throws his arms up in the air. "FINE! Ride him, grab her, I don't care!" Rover directs the other three dogs toward the hole up in the chamber roof. "Don't let her get away! Bring the cage with you!" He snarls at Rocky.
"Can climb?" The big Diamond Dog watches as you quickly scuttle up his arm, then wrap around it tight. He chuckles to himself, then grabs the crystal cage laying on the ground. His lumbering frame makes it's way over to the wall as he begins to climb behind the other Diamond Dogs.
As before, they all seem to be moving pretty slowly. The crimson crystals must be climbed with care if they have any hope of making it out. Carrying your friends at the same time only adds to the difficulty of safely traversing the wall.
The mechanical sputtering grows louder as you see a few shadows wisp over the volcano entrance. It seems the pegasi have already begun their attack.
"Quickly! Climb, dogs, climb!" Rover shouts as he picks up his pace, taking the lead.
"We're saved!" Scootaloo cries out.
If those crates do begin to fall down into the chamber again, it might be a good idea to have a plan in place to deal with them…
