Towering above the land of Equestria, perched on a lone peak, sat Canterlot Castle, its white walls and glittering spires reflecting the majesty of the setting sun. The light shone through the stained glass windows and into the throne room illuminating the inside of the castle with all the colors of the rainbow. A young princess stood there and watched the bright display in silence. The light of a low hanging sun almost caused the beautiful artwork of the windows to come to life.

The history of Equestria was recorded here from the ancient cold days before warmth and harmony to the time of the young princess's own adventures with her best friends. The way the light illuminated the chronicles was a reminder of her own important position in history, which made her slightly nervous. She looked closer at the windows displaying the ancient past. Most of the events depicted she had read about in her books, although some she did not recognized from her studies.

"Twilight…..why aren't you with your friends?" The majestic princess of the day said softly as she joined Twilight in the throne room. "Pinkie Pie had informed me that she had planned a spectacular post-coronation party. You don't want to miss it do you?"

"No of course not Princess. I was just looking at the windows, they are amazing at this time of day." Celestia smiled as Twilight continued to speak. "I…was wondering though. There are some events that i'm not familiar with." She said pointing to a window that depicted five characters she was not familiar with. "I'm not surprised Twilight, much history from that time has been lost. Nopony remains that remembers……save for two."

Twilight looked up at the princess "You?" "Yes…and Luna, we were all witness to the Genesis of Harmony.", Celestia replied. Twilight looked at the windows and realized that she could not see the story of the Elements.
"Princess……I thought that you and Luna were the first ones to use the elements." Celestia chuckled, "Well yes….but not exactly. You'd probably be surprised to hear that you and your friends were not the first bearers of the Elements."

The young princess was slightly dumbfounded, she thought she had read and re-read the history of Equestria several times over. Why was there no mention of this? "You look confused Twilight….maybe I should tell you the story. Or most of what I remember after I banged my head." The princess chuckled again. "This was….over one thousand years ago so I must have a moment to collect my thoughts. I will only tell you the first part so not to delay Miss Pie's party any longer." Celestia paused for a moment

"Do you remember the story of the first founding of Equestria?" The young student nodded and spoke, "Yes! And the kingdom lasted for nearly a century before tragedy struck. The Platinum dynasty fell into darkness and disappeared. Legends says the fall was because of a misused Love Potion." Celestia beamed "Very good, Professor Felix would be proud! Now the kingdom fell into a period of disharmony….and that is where my story begins……or at least what I can remember. Like I said I bumped my head pretty hard…."


====In the distant past====

One century after the founding of Equestria the once united land was once again divided. Twenty years ago the last queen of the Platinum Dynasty disappeared with her entire court. Now the land has fallen to disharmony, with the three pony tribes in perpetual conflict for a crown that no longer exists. The old Canterlot Castle looms over the fractured land, the once glorious shining capital of Equestria sitting neglected on its lonely mountaintop. No pony dares go near that place for it is rumored to be haunted by dark vengeful spirits.

One night on the outskirts of a small village named Hooves Run near the Canterlot foothills five ponies with no particular connection look up at the night sky and see two shooting stars cross the sky.

>Vigilance And Imminent “Emmy” Glow

Are walking down the road to Hooves Run when they see the meteors light up the sky.
>Double Action and Cinnamon Blossom
Are walking into the local saloon when they notice the streaks of light. No one else seems to give it a second thought.
>Lily the Deer
Is walking through the peaceful forest on the outskirts of the pony village when she sees the shooting stars cross the sky above the trees.
(You may begin)


I pull down my hat tight and gallop off to follow it.


I look up at the meteors and nod, before continuing on my way to Hooves Run.


I continue waddling towards the saloon.


"Wow! A shooting star!" I say, my eyes are instantly filled with wonder. "Master Aldan said, that when you see a shooting star, you should make a wish." I stamp around, marveling at the thing. "Its just a legend told to children, but…" I close my eyes tightly. "I wish, just once, I could do something big, that'll help everypony, everyone!"

I shake my head.

"It'll never come true, of course. But, its fun to dream!"

I continue walking towards the pony village.

"I wonder if I'll meet anyone there… Oooo… this is so daunting… Maybe I'll make a friend, but… going to a village…"


Emmy follows Vigilance, but slows down a bit to admire the comets.
"Doesn't the sky give the most amazing sights?" she comments.


(Remember we have dice here)
Normally you cannot chase a shooting star but strangely in this case one of them seems to be HEADING RIGHT TOWARDS YOU.
As you walk along you notice the shooting stars don't simply fade away but are HEADING RIGHT TOWARDS YOU
You waddle in the saloon and take your seat at the bar. There is a shadowy figure sitting a stool across from you.
You hear the sound of your master Aldan in the distance "Lilly! Come quick!" you can hear the sounds of a scuffle in the woods ahead


"I suppose. You know what comets are right? Big frozen rocks, flying through space at extreme speeds. Learned that in Canterlot about…….."

I stop to think

"Thirty-four years ago."


Hearing the sound of my Mentor's voice, I dutifully heed his call, and race to his area.


She giggles.
"You think too much," she quips.
She looks back up at the sky.
"They look like they're getting bigger…"
She then jumps in suprise as she notices why.
"RUN!" she yells as she gallops away.


I dodge it horse like. For I am a horse and horses are fast.

Roll #1 8 = 8


"No such thing as thinking too……get down!"

I try and tackle Glow out of the way.

Roll #1 4 = 4


>rolling to not be a pancake

Roll #1 5 = 5


"I'd like a whiskey on the roc- Ya know what *hic* just give me the whole damn bottle!" I slur loudly at the bartender.

You see your master sparing with an young armored teen dragon your master looks at you as you arrive "Lily Ru-!" The moment of distraction upon seeing you allows the dragon to maul him with his claws. Your master falls to your feet mangled and bloody and mortally wounded. The dragon wipes the blood from his claws and stares at you. You see a phoenix egg laying at his feet.
Vigilance tackles Glow to the ground as the nearby ground explodes causing you both to be catapulted away several feet. You are both knocked helpless immediately. (default to get up)
The Meteor streaks by you as if actively dodging you and flies over your head and plowing into a grain silo ahead. The Silo is now ablaze and lights are coming on.
Inside the bar a distant thud is heard but most people continue on drinking as if nothing had happened. The bartender slides you a whiskey bottle and a glass of ice. "On the house. Courtesy of that gentlecolt over there." he motions to the shadowy figure across from you who nods slightly.


She tries to get up.

Roll #1 8 = 8


I gallop up to it
"Fire! Fire! Call the fire chief!"

Roll #1 6 = 6


Seeing the sight of my bloodied master, I am instantly filled with the rage of a 1000 Suns.

I whack the Dragon upside the head with my staff.

Roll #1 10 = 10


Vigil gets up and looks around, turning towards the crater left by the meteors.


I turn to Glow,

"You alive?"

Roll #1 4 = 4


"*hic* Thanks Mr.Free Booze!" I slur at the shadowy figure before turning my attention to my free drink. I attempt to pour the whiskey in the glass but miss spilling half the bottle over the bar. I then try to lift up the glass (Which I think is full) to take a sip only to drop it spilling ice all over me.


(meteor….only one hit you can tell)
You stand up there is a smoking crater next to you.
"That fool was trying to take my egg I saw it fi-"
You cut him off mid sentence with a powerful thwak that knocks him to the ground helpless.
A grubby looking pony that looks like he was squatting in the silo runs out with half his mane on fire "Oi! I think ders a filly trapped in thar!"
Ponies are starting to open windows and doorways.
The figure leans over to you and says in a velvety smooth voice.
"Miss….pardon me……but I was wondering if you would be interested in some work. There could be more where that came from." Pointing to the half empty bottle. "With the kind of bits you would make."


I go and look in the crater.


"Leave now, you fiend. Or I shall make the last ten seconds of your life a miserable one."

Rolling intimidation.

Roll #1 10 = 10


I tighten my hat and I button up my duster
I toss my saddlebag (Full of ammo and alcohol) and my holster to the pony
"Now sir ahm placin a lotta trust in ya so ah can save that filly… dont let me down ya hear?"
I run into the silo and look for any filly shaped silhouettes.


"Yeah, thanks."

Roll #1 4 = 4


She follows.
"What do you think it is?"

Roll #1 9 = 9


"If we're lucky, and reality is working normally? Just a big rock, mostly burned up in the atmosphere. If we're not lucky? Space demons."


I stare at the spilled booze like a little filly would stare at the corpse of her beloved pet that some homeless pony had just set on fire and pissed on it to put it out to keep it from burning his cardboard home to ash. I quickly turn my attention to the figure snapping out of it "What kind *hic* work are ye talking bout?"


He struggles to his feet "Y-You'll rue this day mark my words doe. You're gonna be my dinner before you know it! No one makes a fool of Stryfe Redtooth!" He flies off in a rage leaving you alone with your dying master and the phoenix egg. "Lily…come closer…."
You look over the edge of the crater and see a bruised solid white pony filly with a pink mane laying in the center of the smoldering crater. She's a unicorn no wait…a pegasus…..both? She appears unconscious.
As you enter the silo you see a dark blue filly crying loudly amidst the burning debris. You can't get a good look at her through all the smoke and fire.
"Tonight is a special night…there were some deliveries let's call them. Two young fillies who are very important to my benefactor. Here is what i need done. Find these two fillies, they should be nearby, round up a team that is capable of defending said fillies, and then bring them to the Old Arcanium in Phillydelphia. You do that for me and you my young mare friend will be set for life."


"It's a little filly!"
She rushes to her, gets down, and asks, "Are you okay?"

Roll #1 5 = 5


I rush up to the filly and grab her
"Woah nelly little girl… lets get you outta here!"
I place her on my back and get her to safety
>Toughness Racial


I rush next to him.
"I can heal you! Just stay still." I knell down, and get close to him.

My fur goes golden brown.

"Don't you die on me now…" I say, hold him in my hooves, letting my buds do there work.

Roll #1 10 = 10



Vigil sighs.

"Its a god. Well………..huh."

I sit down on the edge of the crater.


test roll

Roll #1 3 = 3


She looks back to him with a confused expression.
"A god?" she asks.
"Well, she needs care, help me get her up."


"It fell from the sky and it has no clearly defined race. So by a superstitious person's defintion, its a god……"

"Lower case "g""

I say, clarifying.


"Okay wutever you say Mr.Freedrinks" I try floating the half empty bottle towards me but it slips out of my magicks at shatters against the floor. I give a disappointed look at the spilled booze and make my way out of the tavern grumbling over the wasted whiskey.


As she grabs the "god"'s shoulder, she again pokes, "As I said, you think too much," then continues grunting and pulling the filly out of the crater.


"unnn….." she moans reassuring you that she is indeed alive but appears wounded. You walk down and pull her out of the crater.
"Good to see she arrived safety." You hear a gravely voice behind you as two hooded figures approach wearing strange random and patchy robes . "Now if you would kindly hand the filly over to us…no one needs to get hurt." They appear to be diamond dogs.
You heft her on your back getting a better look at her. She has silvery blue-white hair and appears to posses both a unicorn horn and a pair of pegasus wings. As you are amazed by this sight suddenly a burning piece of timber drops down and blocks your exit.
"It's too late…….Lily….." You notice that the dragon in his attack has completely eviscerated him he does not have much time left. "Lily…..listen to me……the egg….."
"Very well then…..it looks like one of our guests has arrive nearby…if you did not hear that thud outside a moment ago. Maybe you can start there." He says this and gets up walking away and vanishing into the crowd. Suddenly someone busts into the saloon and yells "Fire! There's a fire at the grain silo!"


Tears began to swell up in my eyes. I nod, understandingly

Roll #1 10 = 10


"Just mah luck…"
I quip a bit sarcastically
"Anypony outside step back! Imma clear the door the only way ah know how!"
I set the strange filly down somewhere safe as I buck the timber in half.

Roll #1 3 = 3


She gently puts the filly down, and shoots a killing look at the hooded figures.
"And just who are you?!"


damn email field


Using my super awesome drunken detective skills I go outside and look for any signs of the young filly that the shady figure was talking about.


"A being falls from the sky matching the sigil on the royal banner, and a few diamond dogs in robes show up and threaten us because they want it, at at time when Equestria has no Ruler."

"Now I don't read THAT much fiction, but that sounds a little villainous, don't you think?"


She casually looks to her side to say to him, "Yeah…"
Then she looks at the mysterious figures with the same sharp gaze as before.

"A vison.*cough*…..find the two sisters from the stars….t-they have arrived..this night! find them *cough*….the phoenix in that egg…..well help return harmony……………..Phi..lo.mena….." his eyes glaze over with the palour of death
Your attack misses as the fire begins to spread the filly is still crying loudly
"That does not matter, she belongs to us."
"Are we going to have to do this the hard way?" The diamond dog looks under his hood at you and growls.
You run to the Silo which ponies are now trying in vain to put out as the fire begins to spread. "Somepony went in there!" one mare exclaims

I draw my sword and shield.

"I suppose we are. Draw your weapons then."


I scoop her up again and hold her tightly under my duster
"Damnit we dont have time for this! Ahm not lettin ya be turned into barbecue filly…"
I hold her with one hoof as I do a 3 legged charge and burst through the burning timber head first, my heavy clothing protecting me

Roll #1 9 = 9


I float out my bottle of whiskey taking a sip before charging right into the burning silo.


The tears well up in my eyes…
I rest my head on his chest, crying.
"Master Aldan…" I sob. "You were the only one I had… and now, I'm all alone…" I sit there sobbing, while the tears stream down from my face, and onto my master's lifeless body.

Eventually, I stand up, and pick up his body and the egg, carrying him on my back.


She gets up on her hind hooves as she casts a spell. Magic begins swirling around her front hooves, as a pair of sai begins to materialize.

Roll #1 7 = 7


>btw, i rolled for conjure weapon


"Your funeral"…suddenly both diamond dogs spontaneously sprout wings one with dragon wings and one with vulture wings. They fly into the air and begin to circle around you each of them barking and howling loudly at you.
You summon your weapons
You charge right through the burning block of wood and….
crash into a cream colored unicorn at the entrance to the silo. Both of you are helpless and the blue filly continues to cry loudly.
You do so carrying your master's body and the egg with you. You can hear the sound of barking and howling in the distance.


I make a break for the nearby village.


She takes a defensive stance as they circle around them.
"Okay, now what?" she asks Vigil, still eyeing the winged diamond dogs.


I rub my head groaning while trying to get up.

Roll #1 8 = 8


I >>434720
I put up my sword and shield and draw my longbow and take an empowered shot at the vulture-dog.

"Got something to shoot?"

Roll #1 2 + 3 = 5


I get up and dust the embers off my duster and tip my hat to Cinnamon
"My apologies maam… but to be fair ah did tell everyone to clear out from the door… at least ah didnt buck it out like ah planned… that woulda hurt a lot more…"
I pick Luna in my forehooves and begin rocking her softly while humming her a small tune
>rolling to appease princess of the night

Roll #1 6 = 6


"No, I didn't know they could fly!" she shoots back.


"Try to bring them down, somehow…"


"Working on it."

Roll #1 7 + 3 = 10


Still carrying your masters body and the egg you begin make it to the edge of the forest. You can see two winged hooded figures circling around two other figures on the road in the distance.
He dodges your shot "Too slow!" he shrieks as he dives for you [1d10]
(who's luna lel?)
The filly stops crying immediately.
You and Double Action stand outside of the burning silo which the townsponies have given up stopping and now seek only to contain it to keep it from spreading to more buildings.


Roll #1 2 = 2


The dog misses you and is within melee range
(roll actions)


She lunges at the fallen diamond dog and strikes him with one sai…

Roll #1 7 = 7


then the other.

Roll #1 5 = 5


I shoot the dog in the face with an arrow at point blank range.

Roll #1 10 + 2 = 12


I look around for the pony who I gave my stuff to as I gently lay [DATA EXPUNGED] on my back to let her get some rest

Roll #1 9 = 9


Realizing my way is blocked, unless something happens, I summon my Anima.

Anima: once per combat; your spirit animal appears as a minion til combat ends, while it remains you have a +1 bonus to recover from helplessness and navigate rough natural terrain

Anima is a Phoenix

Roll #1 6 + 2 = 8


Putting two and two together my eyes turn into dollar signs as I guess this must be the filly thats worth lotso bits! I attempt to telekineticly lift the filly off his back and run away with it.

Roll #1 1 = 1


One attack manages to strike him as he yelps in suprise.
He goes down immediately twitching.
The other diamond dog laughs and shoots a bolt of magic at you [1d10]
You find your stuff intact and the little filly goes to sleep in your back. The fire seems mostly contained as the silo burns to the ground.
Your spirit pheonix emerges as bright and brilliant as ever. You remember when you first learned from your master how to summon the spirits from the aether. He told you what the pheonix represented. The everlating cycle of birth, life, and death. He told you that nothing ever truly dies, all life is eternal and ever changing. Just like the pheonix.
You manage to try manage to lift the fily a few inches but she immediately begins to cry loudly again causing you too loose your already bad concentration and fall on your flank helpless. Double Action sees this happen.

(wait for post)

Roll #1 6 = 6


Vigilance takes -1 hit from a grazing hit.
(roll actions)


I fire again at the other diamond dog.

Roll #1 6 + 2 = 8


>Go Moltres, use Brave Bird
My Phoenix swoops down and pecks the diamond dog.


Roll #1 10 + 2 = 12


I smile at Cinnamon warmly
"Aww if you wanted to hold her ya shoulda just asked… but ya gotta help me find her momma first, prolly has the same wings and horn… well shoot ill be damned if ah said ah ever saw a thing like that again…"

I repeat the process of cradling her and humming her a different lullaby
>rolling childcare

Roll #1 9 = 9


I flail my legs around in an attempt to get back up.

Roll #1 3 = 3


At this brief point in time where she can not attack, she conjures armor for herself, and her body is surrounded by glowing magic as metal plates cover her.
>rolling for armor conjuring

Roll #1 6 = 6


>Change again to before

Roll #1 9 = 9

The flying dog hovers above Vigilance
"Yer gonna pay for th- ow ow hey hey hey! stop that you crazy bi- ooof!"
The phoenix spirit pecks the shit out of the flying diamond dog and then tackles him out of the sky. (Both dogs are helpless)
You shoot straight but your shot hits air as a spirit pheonix emerges from the edge of the forest and tackles the dog out of the sky.
The little filly goes back to sleep softly on your back. You see in the distance what looks to be fight on the outskirts of town. A fiery phoenix is lighting up the night sky.
You flail madly for a minute and then get back up. Most ponies in the town are fighting the fire and not paying attention to events.
Your armor is summoned. You can hear the little white filly moan nearby "uhhhh..my…..sister…..where's Luna.?"

The first dog scrambles to his feet.
wait for roll

Roll #1 4 = 4


He struggles but does not make it up.
(roll actions)


Flailing intensifies as I try to get up again.

Roll #1 1 = 1


My phoenix claws at the dog that attacked Vigil with her sharp talons.

Roll #1 7 + 2 = 9


(you made it up already)


I walk over to the vulturewinged one, and shoot the dog on the ground in the head.

Roll #1 10 + 2 = 12


I stare at the fight and shake my head, looking for her parents.
I start first with the pony that was in the silo then question them one by one.
I head back to Cinnamon (being one of the few people not busy)
"You seen any parents with horns an wings around these her parts maam?"

Roll #1 10 = 10


At seeing both diamond dogs taken care of, she instantly unsummons her armor and rushes to the little filly.
"Don't worry, we'll find her…"

Roll #1 8 = 8


Dusting myself off I slur "Nope im not that drunk yet."

Roll #1 4 = 4


"What's your name? Where did you come from?" she asks with a concerned tone of voice, while gently patting her.


"Well shoot, it looks like these townsfolk have the fire under control, how bout you help me lo-"
I remember seeing the pheonix in the sky
"I think ah got a good hunch where they are…"
I gallop off to the area where the pheonix is


I follow.


The dragon winged dog takes a large amount of damage and appears to be bleeding heavily.
The dog goes limp. Suddenly the ground nearby his body seems to be………boiling.
You go around the whole town (which is quite small) and do not find a single pony that is or knows this little fillies parents. Finally you catch the homeless pony who is missing half of his mane. "Nah buddy….that lil filly right there fell outta the sky…..I know cause she crashed into the roof uh dat silo i was wot sleepin in. I don think she belongs here mate."
You see the Cowpony carrying the little filly ask around town about the little one's parents. You can see a fight in the distance on the road into town.
Her eyes snap open and she looks at you in horror…….she begins scooting away as if very afraid.
You run edge of town you can see a firey pheonix attacking a downed diamond dog with….wings? that's strange. Also present is another diamond dog, this one dressed as an equestrian knight, and a unicorn wearing ethereal armor who isn't paying attention to the battle but to something on the ground nearby.

The dragon winged dog attempts to get up and fly away.

Roll #1 4 = 4


Fails roll actions
You follow the Cowpony


I walk over, grab the dog's neck, and break it with my bare hands.

Roll #1 4 = 4


Realizing the Diamond Dog is as good as dead, I continue on to the town.

Roll #1 3 + 2 = 5


She backs off hastily, not wanting to frighten the little filly, then pays her attention to the strangely boiling ground.
"Um, what's happening there?" she asks with her hoof pointing to "there."


Ignore roll

Roll #1 5 + 2 = 7


fucking email


I look at the scene and the various people confused.
I look at Lily
"Hey freaky lil buffalo miss… Ah don spose ya seen this little filly's parents around have ya? The townsfolk said she fell from the sky!"


"Another one?"

I say getting up.

Roll #1 4 = 4


I ignore the question, as I have a dead deer on my back, and a Phoenix egg to worry about


I just sit back watching "I think I had to much *hic* whiskey."


I notice her carrying the other deer
I just tip my hat to her in sympathy
"You found her ma!?"
I say looking at him excitedly


Fails the dog rolls away and attempts to spring to his feet
You head to the town, You see a unicorn mare, and an earth pony stallion carrying a strange little filly who possess both wings and a horn pass you on the road.
As you say that the diamond dogs body literally sinks into a boiling puddle of what looks and smells like boiling chocolate. The filly just stays there quivering having backed up to a boulder.
Yeah you see the deer passing by (guess i didn't have to tell you…)


Roll #1 3 = 3


Fails to get up
(roll actions)


I nonchalantly stomp the head of the dog before turning to Double.

"Sibling I think actually."

Roll #1 1 = 1


"Oh, no you don't."
She gallops to the escaping diamond dog and makes a stab at him.

Roll #1 5 = 5


As I get to town, I sit down and take a short break…

"Ok… I got to town…" I say, breathing heavily…
I look over at my master. "This isn't right… You deserve a proper burial…" I remember seeing a Diamond Dog back there and that Diamond Dogs are exceptionally good diggers.


I look at her worriedly
then look back at the armored dog, then the ground and drag a hoof across the ground contemplating
"Well shoot guess some family is better den no family…"


>second stab?

I say gesturing to the symbols on my tabard.

Roll #1 8 = 8


I stare at the banner closely
"Well ah can kinda see the resemblance… you know any more about em? Ah aint much for pawl-lee-ticks"


"Only that they showed up on the Royal Banner. Thats about it. They appear to have the wings of a pegasus and the horn of a unicorn. I don't know what they're doing here, but being that this is Equestria is twenty years without an heir, I can take a guess."

He grabs your paw and pulls you to the ground (helplesss) attempting to use the momentum to get up himself [1d10]
Ponies are looking at you kinda strange, not many deer visit the town, and the dead deer on your back does not help .
You suddenly take notice that the little white pink maned filly is looking at you(Double Action)….her horn and eyes is glowing. "My sister! GIVE ME MY SISTER!" her voice booms unnaturally. The blue filly on your back starts to cry

Roll #1 4 = 4


I take a sip of whiskey wondering how im supposed to steal these fillys and get them all the way to Fillydelphia wherever that is to collect muh bits.


"Please can someone help me? I need to give my teacher a proper burial." I say, with wet and puffy eyes.


She takes another stab at the diamond dog.

Roll #1 2 = 2

I get up, shaking him off.

Roll #1 2 + 2 = 4


The crying filly getting on my nerves I waddle up to Double Action and slur "Your doing it *hic* wrong the things prolly thirsty or sumthing!" I try to float my bottle of whiskey up to moonbutts mouth.


I pull her away and stare daggers at Cinn but say nothing


Drinking helps you remember one of the things the mysterious job giver said "Round up a team that is capable of defending said fillies"
Your second attack strikes true and you end the diamond dog's life. Killing is not something that you are used to, and the deed sends reverberations through your conscious. It's not the first time and somehow you feel it won't be the last.
You stand up shaking of the corpse that begins to puff up and turn white oddly.
These efforts fail the little blue filly screams her first words to you. "TIA TIA WHERES TIA?"
"I'm…here Luna…." The white filly says, this time more patiently. Everyone sensitive enough can feel the sheer magic emanating from the two fillys.
This act causes you to be hurled backwards telekineticly by a force greater than your own but you land softly taking no damage.
The local undertaker walks up to you. An old grey stallion. "Give him to me miss. I'll make sure he's properly laid to rest."


"Thank you." I sniff. Handing my Mentor's lifeless body to the undertaker.


I hand her the filly and smile
"You two belong together. No doubt about that."


I walk up to the two fillies, putting my weapons away.

"Greetings. With all due respect, who are you two?"


She pauses as her sai is still impaled in the diamond dogs body, then pulls it out. She unsummons them, while the fillies have their reunion, but she pays no heed, and instead is consumed by her action of killing.

Roll #1 8 = 8


She takes a deep breath, and returns to the moment of now. She turns to see the fillies, and the strangers.


Very confused as to whats happening I rub my head and walk up to the two fillys to get a better look at them.

He smiles warmly "I will take good care of him don't you worry. We will have a small ceremony for him at dawn. What was his name?"
The white filly lifts the blue one from your arms magically and into her hooves "Tia!" "Luna!" they both embrace. The magic field dissipates rapidly and both fillies collapse unconscious from the weight of their wounds sustained in the night's ordeal.
No answer as all you see in front of you are two sleeping fillies fallen from the stars. The white one might need medical attention.
The diamond dog corpse is now a giant burnt marshmellow wut? , there is also still a bubbling pool of what seems to be chocolate nearby.
Two adorable sleeping fillies. As a unicorn you felt the sheer weight of the magic that emanated from both little ponies. They are powerful, dangerously so even.


"His name was Aldan."


"Well shoot thats a might cute… but…"
I turn to Vigil
"I assume those scoundrels back ther wanted their paws on the big un eh? Pretty rare kinda pony…"
I shake my head in contemplation
"That aint good one bit… not good at all"


I carefully examine the white one's wounds.


"If I had to take a guess, they probably are Rulers of some form. I mean the strange biology, the powerful magic, falling from the sky, in the days without a King? These beings may be the salvation of all Equestria."

"Then again I might just be being dramatic and they might be hideous steller daemons in disguise waiting for us to turn our backs so they can tear out our souls and feat on our livers. You never can tell with these things, at least not easily."


"Well I promise you miss the Aldan here will have a proper funeral." He offers to take the deer's body off your hooves.
The white filly has a nasty gash on her head.


"Hehe well its settled for me… Ah aint lettin the future salvation of ponykind get foalnapped…"
I extend a hoof and a friendly smile
"Names Double Action… judging by your looks you aint to fond of leavin these two alone either eh?"


I look at best princess
"Oh my… Im afraid ah don know much about medicine… Should I gallop back in town and get a doc?"


"Well they're either superbeings, in which case i'm stuck babysitting, or they're demons and I'll be fighting them at some point."

"I am Brother Vigilance, ex-Knight of the Round Trough, sadly disbanded when the days of the King ended, and a Platinum Queen stopped sitting on the throne of Canterlot. And this is Imminent Glow, we met on our way to Hooves Run."


"I'll handle it"

I Mend Sunbutt [Defaulting], laying my hand on her gash.


I hand him the body.
"Thank you."


"If you say so…"
I shake his paw and turn to Glow and tip my hat
"Pleased to meet ya miss Glow… if ya don mind what do you do fer a living?"


She walks to Double Action, and says, "You can call me Emmy."


"Aww shit its damaged. I hope I still get my bits." I mumble to myself thinking what ima do with all that moneys.


The fillies wounds are healed after taking some time, it is some time past midnight now.
He takes him from you and nods "Just come back in a few hours and I'll be ready."

(GM will brb keep postan)


My ears perk up and a turn to her shocked


"I have to be strong… Aldan said this egg had was really important…something about the fate of the world… I wonder… Wait a minute, did someone say something about god fillies?" I head out of town, to the where the others where.


"Its a pleasure to meet ya Emmy. Im Double Action, friends call me Double A, lazy friends call me DA… Im a bounty hunter…"


"I was part of the Fellowship of the Sun."


I raise an eyebrow.



"Well, its nice to meet you too, Double…"


"Yep ah wrangle me up some criminal scum and turn em in to da guard…"
"Likewise Emmy!"


You head out of town and can see the group of four + two standing in the road near a crater, a pool of boiling chocolate, and a diamond dog shaped marshmellow.


"I suppose I'm in much the same line of work, though I prefer to aim for a bit bigger targets. Lesser devils, Innucubi, Imps, Fiends, Shades, Liches, Necromancers, Witches, Timber Wolves, rogue Dragons and roaring sea serpents."

"Takes a lot longer for each fight, usually have to gather a team for each hunt, but it keeps the Kingdom safe. Or whats left of it anyway."


"Sounds like… it doesnt pay well…"
I take out my flask of whiskey and take a sip before tucking it back into my duster of holding


"Heh what I meant to say was I still hope I get my bits for taking these two fillys to Fillydelp- I mean uhh handing them over to a strange pon wait no hehe-" I just shove my hoof in my mouth to keep myself from spilling anymore of my secrets.


She looks at the other female unicorn with a face of confusion.


"Not even slightly. Most of it goes to maintaining my equipment, and even then public charity is needed to make ends meet. I had been just running around heaping up the dead since order started breaking down past the local level, but if these beings really are prophesied leaders, they might be able to help end this conflict."


"What strange pony?"

I say, anger slightly evident in my voice.


I take out my flask again and wave it at her offering her some
"Well shoot, now come now maam… you can trust me! Were all friends here right?"
"Sounds like a plan… so do we just get em to the old Canterlot castle and wait some till theyr all nice and big like or…?"


I place the egg in my bag of holding, then approach the team.

"I feel something chaotic coming our way…" I say out loud, staying at the party, puff eyed, and stone faced.


"No, there's a method to this madness. Spirits are weird, fickle creatures, but they aren't inherently irrational. At least not most of them. No whats likely to happen is either were going to be attacked by something, and we'll be stuck guarding them, some evil cult or organization or noble is going to try and stop them because they're a threat, or we're going to be charged to complete a series of seemingly pointless but actually crucial quests with the aid of the sleeping companions over there. Happened all the time when I was still in Canterlot."


"Err saywhatnow?"
I look at the approaching deer
"Well she certainly seems to confirm your suspicions…"


"You're the deer from earlier. You helped with the attackers. Who are you? And whats coming this way?"


"Aint mystics sposed ta be all ominous and such? And whats a deer? Is that lika buffalo tribe or somethin?"
>deers are relatively uncommon and mostly unknown to many


I drink every last drop of whatever was in the flask before sluring. "Some strange very nice pony who bought me a drink wants me and some other schlubs to take these fillys to some Arcaniawatsit in Fillydelphia for a large amount of bits."


I consider what my master said very carefully. I take out the egg from my bag of holding.
"The two sisters from the stars have arrived this night. The phoenix, inside this egg, Philomena, will help them return harmony."


She listens to all of this, without saying a word.

Because cool characters are ominously silent and listen to stuff.

And because I have nothing to put in her mouth.


"Is an obscure forest dwelling race. And no, "mystics" are a plague. Magic isn't some weird hidden force, its an exact science. The Arcane Academies back in Canterlot were actually quite rigid on this point."

"Called it! How will this phoenix egg help?"


"My master did not say." I look down sadly at the egg. "He died before saying anything else…"


"Were schlubs im sure we can handle it…"
I shrug
"Ah wouldnt know beyond what I hear from word a mouth.."


"Its fine. Just try and remind me if Equestria is ever restored to bring in public education."

"He perished recently?"


"Its probably a trap. I doubt that pony can be trusted"


"Yes… I have been to the village so that he could be buried, properly."

You spend the next few hours talking, dawn is fast approaching


"If it's all the same, I'd like to stay for his funeral before we do anything else."



I yawn.

"So where can we go sleep while we wait on these two to get up?"


"Sure. Though ah aint really tired, but I don mind headin back ta town…"
I carefully try to pick up the larger pretty princess pony and lay her on my back
>Toughness Passive


You do so, she sleeps peacfully on your back


Yawning I pick up the small blue horse and set it on my head.
>Resisting urge to put in Bag of Holding.


"There might be an inn in town you can stay at. If you need me, I will be paying my respects." I head back into town, towards the Funereal Home


The little filly curls up and snoozes in the fur on the top of your head.
You begin walking to the graveyard


"I'm ready to set off when you are," she tells the group.


I follow her to town.
"Alright lets go big guy. We gotta stick close, they seem to get antsy when apart."


She follows.


I follow.


I go check and see if the Undertaker has everything ready.



I follow the others towards the inn.
>Pause for tonight?


You walk into town, Lily separates from you all and walks to the graveyard.
He has prepared the body and a grave. "I'm sorry it was somewhat short notice….I can make him a proper headstone later."
(no posting ooc please)

Pause for the night.

"So? What happened next?" The young princess said excited. "Those five were the first element bearers?"
"But there are six elements…"
Celestia smiled "Yes and the story is not over yet my faithful student. But for now I think you better go to your friends. I can hear the music starting already."
Twilight Sparkle nodded and smiled "Thank you princess!" and flew (somewhat awkwardly on new wings) out of the throne room leaving the lone Princess of the day looking at the five figures depicted on the window.

Chapter 2

Twilight Sparkle looked up at the sky watching the stars as the twinkled in the moonlight. It had been several hours after her and Princess Celestia’s talk. The celebration downstairs had finally died down. Twilight was exhausted from her recent ordeals and was looking forward to getting some rest. Tomorrow her friends would go back to Ponyville while Twilight would stay behind for another week to get herself acquainted with her new royal duties. She had promised her friends she would return soon though, Pinkie Pie had promised to throw a party twice as big on her return.

A twinkle appeared on the face of the moon and then a dark silhouette.. “Princess Luna?” The graceful princess of the night flew across the face of the full moon and landed next to Twilight on the balcony. Luna nodded “Greetings Princess Sparkle, a beautiful night is it not?.”, “Erhm you can still call me Twilight and yes it’s a wonderful night.” the young alicorn shifted her hooves nervously. Luna smiled and nodded “Very well Twilight, what keeps you up at this late hour?”

Twilight watched a small shooting star cross the sky, “The Princess told me about the first bearers of the Elements. How you both first met them after falling from the sky. But there are only five ponies in the story?” “Seven counting my sister and I.”, Luna corrected. “Right seven…..So who were they? How did they represent the six elements of Harmony?” Twilight asked excitedly

Luna smiled “Well Twilight, I don’t think my sister would mind if I presume to pick up where she left off……….”

====In the distant past====

Tired from travel and recent developments, the five new acquaintances make their way into the town. Lily the deer traveled to the graveyard while the rest of the group went to procure a room at the Inn.


At the graveyard with the undertaker who is ready to perform last rites
>Vigilance,Cinnamon, Emmy, and Double Action
Outside the the bar and inn carrying two unconscious fillies fallen from the stars


I sit there mourning the loss.

I ask the Undertaker.
"May I please have a moment alone?"


"So these two little fillies are gon need ta share a room with somepony babysittin… I doubt the rooms can hold mor than 4 a us at a time…"
I look at the others
"Who wants ta sleep with tha girls? Ah don need much rest so I can patrol town or guard the door or somethin…"


"Either you or me, I don't care which. Just need somewhere to rest."


He nods to you in an understanding way and walks away 'I'll be nearby if you need anything miss."


I float out my whiskey and take a sip.


"Ah think ya and Emmy should do it, last time that young miss over there tried ta give the poor blue foal alcohol…"
I say more shocked than admonishing


"Yeah, I could watch them," she tells Double Action.



I enter the inn, still carrying the young Wuna on my head.


I follow, princess of the sun on my back.


I waddle behind them.


She follows them into the inn, glad to be getting indoors before the sun sets.





I look at his dead body.

"You never did tell me what I needed to do… You just left me without even saying goodbye…"

Rolling Commune.

Roll #1 6 = 6

The bar is mostly empty, a sleepy looking donkey is behind the bar.
"I would never leave you Lilly……"
The ghostly visage of Aldan barley forms out of the morning mist, "You are never alone…."


I approach the bar and ask for a room at the inn.


I walk up to the donkey full of energy despite the lateness
"Howdy thar sir! Me an mah friends would like to git two rooms if ya don mind"
I say with a smile


She approaches Vigilance and offers to pay for the rooms.


I open my eyes with shock.
"What…? How…?!" I exclaim, dumbstruck.

Roll #1 6 = 6


damn email field


"I can handle it, unless you were just really wanting to pay."


"Sure thing." The donkey yawns. "That'll be twenty bits for each room."
"You have a connection to the spirit world not many possess Lilly. And my spirit lingers because my duty to you has not yet be fulfilled." He smiles warmly


"What do you need to do? What do I need to do?!"


She looks into her satchel.
"I have 50 bits," she announces.
"You sure? I can pay for it."


"Mebbe we can split tha bill?"


"I don't care either way. You handle it if you want"


"Those two fillies….You must watch over them, teach them what I have taught you. Teach them kindness, compassion, duty. Teach them the magic of friendship for they will do wonders with it one day. Burn bright as a shining beacon of hope just like the phoenix."
The little filly on Vigilance's head says something like "momma" in her sleep.
The donkey bartender just looks at you all sleepy eyed/


"I will, master." I say, holding back tears.


I put down 40 bits.

"I'll just pay"

I say, ignoring my talking hat.


I stand waiting for someone who didn't spend all their money on whiskey to pay for my room.


"Oh, well, thank you," she says to Vigil.


"Well thank ya kindly"
"Do all da rooms have windows sir?"



"*hic* Thanks" I slur


"There's an old statue of an ancient and great pony some distance from here……go there with your friends…..pay your respects…..and maybe she will hear your voice, and you will hear her's. Remember I will be with you….always……"
With that your old master fades into the mist leaving you there alone again.
"Yeah one window each……" He hands you room keys "Both upstairs on the right."


I carry Sleeplestia to her room being very quiet not to disturb her


She says thank you and goes upstairs.


I head to the room with them and sleep, packing up my platemail into my bag of holding for the night.


I follow them upstairs


"Wait, no! Don't leave me, again!" I call out, to the vision. I grimace, and turn my head away, still holding back tears.

After he is laid to rest, I head to where ever my team is.


She follows Vigil to their room, and does her going to sleep routine.


I go into my room and fall asleep on the floor


You all pass out. The two fillies share a bed in the room with Emmy and Vigil with, Double Action and Cinnamon sharing a room next door. After only about an hour and half of sleep you are all awakened by a cry of shocked surprised followed by zap sound. Vigil and Emmy are hanging upside down looking down at a pair of frightened fillies. The white one is holding Emmy and Vigil upside down with telekensis, and the blue one has started sobbing.
These events take about an hour and a half, you are starting to get a bit sleepy. As you head back into town you notice smoke on the horizon that was not there earlier in the morning.


I rush into the room guns at the ready
"Whatisit?! Bandi- oh… thats a problem…"
I turn to Celestia and give her a friendly smile
"Umm excuse me little missy… mind puttin mah friends down?"


I try to go back to sleep


She turns to Vigil.
Then she looks down (or is it up?) at Cewestia.
"Hey! What's going on?! Put us down!"


"Who what when? Whats going on here?"


I quickly head in the direction of the smoke.


The white one looks at you determined "Don't come any closer! Who are you! What have you done with us!?"
"WHERE'S MY MOMMA?!" the smaller one cries.
You are still floating above the ground.
You travel through the forest and down the road. You can see a small army of armored boars lead by a robed diamond dog marching down the highway towards the town. They do not see you yet. The diamond dog is wearing similar robes to the diamond dogs who you fought earlier.


"You're at an inn. You fell out of the sky in meteors. The blood is rushing to my head."

I say, explaining the situtation.


I stand still and try to reassure her
"Now now… I donno bout you little missy, but I found your sister in a burnin farm silo… Take what of it what you will but after that little show back ther we didnt want ta split ya but we didnt want ya ta catch a cold or get foalnapped by some scumbags… make o mah words what ya will but im tellin the truth…"


"WefoundyoufallfromtheskyandweprotectedyoufromsomediamonddogswhoalsowantedtocaptureyouandwetookyoutothisinntosleepandPUTUSDOWN!" she says, quite long winded and shocked by this sudden situation.


I stay out of sight, and try to make it to town before they can. Remaining on the look out for anyway to slow them down.


You manage to sleep through all this.
The white filly doesn't look like she is buying it but suddenly she looses concentrations and holds her forehead groaning in pain. The spell is lifted and Vigilance and Emmy are dropped on to the bed landing unceremoniously on the floor. The small blue filly is still sobbing.
You make it to the outskirts of the village. They look like they should arrive in about an hour.


I try to make it to where the rest of the team is.


She gets up slowly, groaning in pain with one hoof to her head.


I cast Heal on Celestia, holding my hand in her direction. [Defaulting].

"Are you ok?"


I ignore them then immediately run to check up on Emmy and Vigil, after making sure theyre okay I scoop up Luna and try to comefort her
"Im sorry little filly, but ah looked everywher for yer parents… not a single soul knew where they were… tha townsfolk said ya came from the sky!"
I point out the window to the sky
"But id be willan to help ya look… but please stop frettin little filly, it aint no use to cry"


You enter the inn although you do not know which room they are staying at.
she looks fine physically but she shakes her head still groaning. "Please…..you have to let us go……."
The little blue one stops crying but clams up avoiding your gaze.


"Where do ya want ta go little missy? Its dangerous out ther for a little filly and her foal sister… no matter how magical ya are…"


"Go where?"


"Excuse me, could I ask you where two foals, a diamond dog, and three ponies are staying?"


I ask the guy at the counter


I start snoring loudly


She let's them ask the question we all want an answer to.


"It doesn't matter…..we have a job to do…….it has to be done….."
She stops holding her head and looks at you sadly
The donkey points up at the two rooms upstairs on the right.
You snore loud enough to wake Cthulhu


"Well as much as ah can relate wher do ya hafta go and what do you hafta do? Mebbe ah can help!"
I say shooting them a smile


I nod.
I head to the rooms.


"Explain where you have to go and what you have to do."


She continues to let them ask the questions we all want answers to.


You are standing outside the first room door. The door is locked.
"I…..can't remember!…….My head is so foggy." She holds it again.

"Tia……..M-momma told us that we have to find the elements of harmony so that the big bad goat man will stop hurting people." The little blue one chimes in abruptly.

The white filly looks stunned "M-momma? I can't even remember………….." tears are welling up in her eyes.


"Dont you fret none lil fillies… its a shame ta see kids cry… howsabout we help ya look for em… Iffen you trust us that is…"
I say with a warm smile


"It's okay, you're safe…" she tries to reassure her.


I knock on the door.
"Open up in there. This is the police. We have you surround. Come out with you're hands up."


"Probably just temporary amnesia from shifting dimensions or some such. You probably shouldn't have traveled if you knew that was the side effect. In the meanwhile, what are the Elements of Harmony?"


Hearing the word police I immediately wake up, frantically get to my hooves, and jump out the window.


"…this is our job we have to do it ourselves…" The little white one looks conflicted. The blue one is silent.
You knock on the door with everyone inside.
You jump out of the window. Everyone inside the next room can see you escaping down the street.


I keep knocking on the door.


I open the door.

"Lying is unbecoming."


You open the door and see Lilly


"I thought making a small joke would ease the tension. I'm sure we're all very confused about the recent turn of events, and I might have a clue on what to do next." I say, in a cool voice.

"However, that must be put on hold. There is a small army of boars led by a diamond dog, in similar garb to the one earlier, heading this way."


Stopping out of breath I look around to see if the fuzz is still after me.


No but you see ponies running around in a panic. "Everyone get to the shelters! There's a warband of hogs coming!" You can hear screams and frantic cries as villagers are in complete panic


She stays silent, trying to be understanding.
She turns to the deer.
"What? Now?"
She turns to everyone else.
"We better go-"
Then she remembers.
It's still night outside.


"Whew close one last time I ever sleep in an inn" I say to myself as I go search for a ditch to sleep in


Without even acknowleding I start suiting up, puting on armor and readying my weapons.


"So, what do we do about this? Do we fight, or flee?"


No it's actually closer to noon


"Ah donno bout you but ah aint standin by an lettin this nice lil town get ravaged"


"Evacuate everyone. I have a plan for dealing with the warband. You said they had a clear leader right?"


"There was a diamond dog dressing in robes similar to the one that was fought earlier. He seemed to be leading."


scratch that part about it being night then
She summons a longbow.
"Let's go, then."
>rolling for longbow-y-ness

Roll #1 7 = 7


"If we defeat him in combat, the warband might splinter and scatter. Most primitive armies do. For the meanwhile, I need someone in charge of getting the villagers to safety, and someone else to come with me to to meet the army."


You summon your longbow

(temporary pause)


"Ahll go with ya. Ah specialize in takin out multiple targets anyways…"


"I'd recommend sending two to handle the town And three to handle the army.

Charging an army that size, with such a small team head-on, would be fool-hardy. I trust, however, you will have a decent plan.

That being said, I will help evacuate the town."


"I'm going to go and challenge the leader of the army to single combat. And if he refuses I'm going to have Double Action shoot him to ribbons."


"I'll help you, since they've got the army covered."


Despite the fact that plan is utterly ridiculous, and he's probably going to die, I nod.
"Very well. However, there's still the matter on what to do about those Sky-fillies…

They should probably go with whoever is evacuating."


"Don't look at me like that. I know what I'm doing."

"And yes. You take them with you."


"I don't doubt you do. Now, then, with that being said…"

I walk over to the fillies, and knell down to their eye level
"Hey, there, my name's Lilly…" I say, softly, introducing myself.

The white one looks at you and says "M-my name is Celestia, and that's my sister Luna." pointing to the the quiet blue one.


I look over to the blue filly.
"You don't have to be shy. I'm here to help.
It's nice to meet the both of you." I say, with a kindly smile.


I adjust my laurel as I finish armoring up, and put my bags of holding on my belt.

"I think you should be on your way. Get them out of here, and make sure the village is safe."

"Double Action, with me."

I start walking out of the Inn.


OOC: We're rping/planning tactics because Flag is getting something to eat for now.


She slowly walks towards them, and hunkers down to meet them at eye level.
"I'm Imminent Glow, you can call me Emmy," she says in the gentlest voice possible.


They both look very nervous. You can tell that they both have been through alot.
She pauses and then smiles nervously
"I-it's nice to meet you Emmy….."
She stutters


"I can understand you're probably nervous right now. That is alright. You've been through a lot. But, we're going to help you through this."
I pull out the phoenix egg and show them it.
"My master gave me this, and told me I needed to find you, and help restore harmony. That's what you're trying to do right? Restore harmony? He said this might help." I hold the egg in front of them, inviting them to take it.


She smiles.
"It's nice to meet you too, without being upside down," she says, giggling at the last bit.
"Don't worry, we'll keep you safe."

She takes it and it starts to quiver. "Huh?" She says


"It must be close to hatching." I say, with a smile.

The egg stops quivering after a moment. The two fillies looking at it in wonder sigh disappointed.

Suddenly a crack appears down the middle of the egg and both ponies jump and shock as a small orange yellow bird starts popping out of the egg.


"Her name is Philomena." I say, concealing my excitement.


"Aw, it's so cute!"


The newborn little bird chirps exciting

"Philomena…." Celestia repeats as she and Luna look on in wonder at the miracle of life, "Y-your master told you this baby birdie would help us?" The white filly says.


"She's a phoenix. A fire bird. When she becomes old, and frail, she will burn, till she is nothing but ashes.. But, she will be reborn from those ashes. 'Nothing truly ever dies'"


"I will admit, even I do not understand it, but yes. That is what I was told. Somehow, this bird will help us.

Now, we must be going. Are you ready?" I say, offering my hoof to the fillies.


"Its a pleasure to meet ya both… Names double action… friends call me double A, lazy friends call me D.A."
I check my guns and follow
"Ready when you are boss…"


They both look on in amazement as the little bird frees herself from her egg chirping happily.
You both walk outside, the army has stopped just short of the town's outskirts. The streets look all but deserted.


I begin approaching the army, Bolstering myself.


"Welp your up pal"
I follow the large diamond dog from a distance prepared to cover him


You can't manage to sleep with all the commotion going down, You also see your two friends Vigilance and Double Action walking outside


Ight left so we must reluctantly pause.

“Hogs?” Twilight asked confused.”You mean pigs right?” “Wild Boars to be exact.” Luna corrected “This one a brutish warrior tribe that lived in the nearby forests and hills. However for all of their aggression and violent tendencies. they were they did not bother the pony folk normally. Something….no……someone had swayed them to that place.”

“Who?” Twilight wondered aloud “An agent of disharmony…….” replied Luna with a serious look.

====In the distant past====
The party after getting but a few hours of have awoken to find the town of Hooves Run has come under siege by a warband of wild hogs lead by a strange robed diamond dog. The party decided to split with one side taking the fillies and helping the townsponies get to safety while the other two traveled to meet the army outside of town.

>Vigilance and Double Action

On the road leading out of town. The army has stopped in the far outskirts.
>Cinnamon Blossom
Lying in the gutter watching as Vigilance and Double Action walk by
>Emmy Glow and Lilly with Celestia, Luna, and hatching Philomena
Running to the center of town where everyone seems to be fleeing to.


A tumble weed rolls right infront of me as I walk
"Huh… what are da odds…"
I keep my eye on Vigildog from a distance.


I continue approaching the army.


"Why is everyone going to the center of town?" she asks the air as she runs towards it.


I keep running towards the center of the town.
"How are you holding up, Luna?" I ask, Luna, who I am carrying.

"Dunno. But if they're in one concentrated location, it makes our duties much easier."


I get up and go look for whatever it is that is causing all this noise and keeping me from mah sleepy times.


You stand there in the road as Vigilance walks on ahead
As you walk down the road you can see the army has noticed the lone traveler and is beginning to circle around you. "Oi Boss wez got us a mutt wif a flag but eh ain one uf us! Wan we should bash es skull en?"

"Brilliant deduction, now shut up!" The diamond dog says as he begins to stroll to you. "The nation that flag represents is no more, why do you display it brother?"

You're suddenly get the sense that you are becoming surrounded.
She doesn't say anything, still looking very scared.
There's an earth pony everyone has gathered around who looks like the mayor of the town. He appears completely bombarded by the frantic townsponies. "They cut off the water supply!" "Where do we go!" "The apple orchards on fire!" "We're gonna die!"

The mayor with beads of sweat running down his face appears dumbstruck and helpless to console the scared townsponies. "I.I….I….I don't know! I DON'T KNOW!"


You can see the frantic townsponies gather in the center of town on one side and the army in the distance which seems to be closing around Vigilance.


I tighten my duster around me and lean on a wall, guns at the ready. I take my flask of whiskey and look on the scene ready to shoot vigil an exit if needed.


"Everyone calm down!" I shout.
"We can help!"


"Are you the mayor of the town? We have to evacuate the town! Tell them to follow us!"


"Two comets have fallen from the sky, and with them two alicorns, like those of legend, printed upon this flag. The interrex may soon be over. Soon again begins the days of Monarchs in this land. Why have you brought this great host here, all in arms? The hogs are not a people prone to attacking without warning."


I float out my whiskey drinking whats left in the bottle and go sneaky sneak closer to vigil.
>Rollan stealth.

Roll #1 8 = 8


Your words do not seem to help the frantic townsponies.
"I…..we were not prepared for this…..the army is blocking our only escape route to safety! The only other places to escape to are the canterlot hills which are haunted by v-vengeful spirits….or the Everfree Forest! Do you really want to send these ponies into the EVERFREE?" He pants our of breath from the rant.
He laughs "Wots eh yakkin about boss?" One of the bigger hogs says
"Ah nothing you need to worry your little brain about,………..now………." turning back to Vigilance "Yeah i head about your little pony pups that arrived last night. You might have seen my two brothers the night before? It was unwise to deny us the fillies. So i'm gonna ask you again…..give you a chance to preserve your life and the lives of the ponies in that town back there. Hand over the two alicorns."
You stealthly sneak through a gap in the ranks of the hog army and are crawling under their hooves [spoler] solid snake style withing close distance to Vigilance. You are hiding under one of the big guys.
You see Cinnamon disappear into the ranks of the army.


I close my eyes and focus.
"SILENCE!" I shout, once again.
Rolling to be heard?

Roll #1 1 = 1


"Don't worry, we can take care of them, but we must evacuate the town!" she explains with urgency.


I look at the diamond dog before me, and the army surrounding me. I lower my head to the ground, looking at the dust for a second, before looking up at the robed dog and shouting.

"Double Action. Five rounds rapid!"


I spring out of hiding and try jumping on one of the larger boars/pigs backs.

Roll #1 9 = 9


I draw my revolvers from my distance and start shooting
I fire five shots sending 5 diamond dogs to the ground
>rolling Rapid Barrage (With Knockout)
>+1 from talent

Roll #1 5 + 1 = 6


I rush forward with an empowered strike, drawing my weapon swiftly, cutting into the robed dog's gun with covering fire.

[Rolling single weapon since not using shield]

Roll #1 1 + 3 = 4


Your voice breaks and is drowned out by the frantic ponies. They are starting to run around in despair.
"But where! We have to choose between certain death…..certain death, and CERTAIN DEATH?!"
He eyes you strangely and the Hogs just look on apparently bored.
You hit the diamond dog and 4 of the hogs knocking them helpless.
You miss and one of the boars grazes you with a spear thrust.
You spring on the back of the hog you were under (which just hit Vigilance) "Oi gerrof me hoers!" he bucks you [1d10]

"CHARGE! FORGET THE KNIGHT, I WILL DEAL WITH HIM!" the downed dog shrieks.

The hogs begin to charge toward the town.

Roll #1 2 = 2


Cinnamon is still hanging on
(roll actions)


One more time.

Roll #1 5 = 5


"Calm down! We will protect the town, but we must now go to the Everfree Forest!" she once again says, slightly frustrated by the mayor's stupidity.


I draw my shield and impale the downed dog leader.

Roll #1 5 + 3 = 8


I attack two hogs charging the town
"Now now, play nice lil piggies…"
>dual ranged attack

Roll #1 4, 1 + 1 = 6


I attempt to use my drunken strength to steer the hog into the other smaller hogs and dogs.

Roll #1 7 = 7


You words while loud do not calm the fears and ponies are still running around scared.
"The everfree?!"
"Horrible monsters live in there!"
"We'll be killed!"
"Nowhere is safe!"
"We're doomed!"
The townsponies aren't buying it.
"Wudarya doin! Gerrof me yah dumb hoers!"
You steer him into the path of the charging hogs and cause some of them to smash into the big one tripping over each other.
As you go to shoot you are tackled by one of the hogs charging in. (helpless)
You wound him as he springs back to his feet. "You're gonna regret that!" his eyes begin to glow

Roll #1 2 + 1 = 3


He doubles over holding his wounded side, apparently unable to cast the spell.


I push him off and spring back to my hooves
>Applying adaptable to my recovery roll
"Git off me!"

Roll #1 10 + 2 = 12


"Well, look at it this way, it's either Everfree, where you have a slim chance, or stay here, where you have no chance at all."

Rolling persuasion?

Roll #1 6 = 6


I bring down my longsword into his ribcage.

Roll #1 4 + 2 = 6


Quite flustered by the townspeople's little faith, she powers up her horn towards the sky.
>rolling for magic bolt fireworks


I continue steering the large hog into other much smaller bad dudes.

Roll #1 4 = 4


>actually rolling now

Roll #1 2 = 2


You knock him off and are back on your hooves infront of a wobbly angry boar.
(spell fails but makes a sound and visible light)
The towns ponies are beginning to gather around you and Emmy. "Yes! I think we should listen to the two…..the deer might even know her way through the forest!" The mayor says.
You graze him with your and jumps back he holds his paw up to his wound [1d10+1]
The 4 boars that were downed have gotten back up and now surround you both.
You fail to control him and he attempts to buck you off again [1d10]

Emmy feels little Celestia tug at her mane.
"Miss Emmy? What's gonna happen to us?"

(wait for roll)

Roll #1 5 + 1 = 6 / Roll #2 2 = 2


The dog stops the bleeding and looks at Vigilance with an angry glare.

Cinnamon is still riding the boar.
(roll actions)


"Ponies! Follow me, I shall lead you out of the forest safely." I announce.


I attempt to steer the hog into the dog near vigilance.

Roll #1 4 = 4


Emmy looks to what's tugging her mane.
Aw, it's wittle Cewestia.
"Don't worry, you're gonna be safe. We just need to go to the Everfree Forest," she reassures her.
She announces to the now submissive crowd, "Let's go, then!" with a motion to the forest.

Roll #1 4 = 4


I point both my guns at him and give him a friendly smile
I fire both shots on his hooves hopefully knocking him to the ground.
>Rolling Trickshot K.O.

Roll #1 8 + 1 = 9


I stab him again.

Roll #1 5 + 1 = 6


They begin to gather around you seemly ready to follow. Luna is on your back, she still looks frightened as she looks at the dark forest.
You fail to control his direction and he tries to buck you off again. [1d10]
You pepper the hog attacking you with rounds. He won't be getting up for awhile. You can see the hogs are starting to ransack the village.
Grazing him again with your longsword he just looks at you eye's glowing again. [1d10+1]
"That forest looks scary though……" she says
You start heading into the forest as you see the hogs begin to enter the town. Fires are being set and you can hear some of the ponies wailing. Also you know three of your friends are still back there.

(wait for roll)

Roll #1 8 = 8 / Roll #2 4 + 1 = 5


"Don't worry, little one, I will get us through the forest safely."

"Emm, be ready to fight." I say to Emm.


Cinnamon is bucked off but lands on her feet. -3 hits. (2/5)

The Diamond Dog sorcerer fires a bolt of strange energy at Vigilance but he ducks out of the way.


I stab forth again.

Roll #1 4 = 4


I begin shooting up some hogs, targeting the most destructive ones in hopes to gather their attention
>rolling dual attack on 2 targets

Roll #1 3 + 1 = 4 / Roll #2 5 + 1 = 6 / Roll #3 8 + 1 = 9


I float out my other bottle of whiskey pouring 1/3 of it down my throat and then slurring "Ish time fer sum hog wrasslin" I attempt to tackle the large hog that I just fell off of.

Roll #1 1 + 1 = 2


She hopes they're okay.
At hearing Cewestia's fright, she pats her longbow, saying, "I can take care of them, and with your magic, we can take on anything!"

Roll #1 1 = 1


She still appears nervous…but she smiles when you tell her that.
He dodges you blow and catches you in the jaw with a right hook. -1 hits. (4/5) "What do you hope to accomplish by denying us. Don't you see you're only making it worse for yourself?"
Your first attack misses but your second manages to graze one hog who stops pillaging and is now charging you. [1d10]
"Wot?" the hog slips out of your drunken hold and pins you. (helpless) 0/5
You begin to head into the forest, the town vanishing behind the trees. "They're following us!" one pony exclaims. And you can hear the boars charging through the forest after you.

Roll #1 6 = 6


Flag is grazed by a tusk and takes -1 hits (5/6)


I meant Double Action


I rip my jaw free and headbutt him.

Roll #1 5 = 5


She looks back, and draws her longbow at the incoming threat.
"Get ready."


"Everyone follow me! Emm, slow them down!" I say. I press forward.


I take my weapons and draw more hogs to myself, ignoring the one that grazed me.
>rolling dual attack on pillaging hogs

Roll #1 9 + 1 = 10 / Roll #2 6 + 1 = 7


I attempt to break free.

Roll #1 9 = 9


He sidesteps you attack and jumps back eyes glowing again. [1d10+1]
Celestia ducks behind your mane. "W-what are they?" You can see a few boars filtering through the trees "Find dos fillies! Stomp da rest!"
You manage to slip out of the pin like a greased up deaf guy. "Ey!! Where'd id go?" The boar says looking under him
The townsponies follow you deeper into the forest. Luna suddenly shrieks on your back "Tia! TIA!" Suddenly you feel lighter as you see the little blue filly has taken flight. She starts fluttering away and into the forest after Emmy and Celestia.
You knock one down and helpless and another takes a shot to the side. He huffs and charges you raging. [1d10]
The other one who hit you is coming back around.

(wait for roll)

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


"Emm, give me, Celestia for now!" I say.


The spell misses Vigilance and Double Action manages to trip the charging hog rendering him helpless.


I rush forward with my longsword, aiming for his neck.

Roll #1 7 = 7


"Yeah," she yells back, still aiming at the boars.
She gets down to allow Celestia out.
"Celestia, go with Lilly, I need to protect you from the boars."
She then lets fly an arrow at one of them.

Roll #1 1 = 1


I tackle the pig again.

Roll #1 5 = 5


I fire my last shot at the helpless boar. Then I reload my revolvers by swapping the cylinders with loaded ones.
>rolling attack

Roll #1 2 + 1 = 3


You slice him once as he grunts and jumps back eye's glowing again. [1d10+1]
"O-oka- MISS EMMY!" as you go to draw your bowstring back a boar's javelin pierces your side rendering you helpless with -1 wound. Celestia is standing looking on in horror as you collapse.
You lock hooves and grapple with him but fail to pin him down. "Yer a wiry ickle hoers!"
The shot misses the other boar comes around to charge you. [1d10]
Luna has disappeared into the forest and you hear little Celestia cry out. "MISS EMMY!"

Roll #1 4 + 1 = 5 / Roll #2 7 = 7


The spell barley misses Vigil again.

Double action is caught in the the side taking -2 hits (3/6)


I slash him again.

Roll #1 3 = 3


She holds her wound as she lays on the ground in pain.
"Go, Celestia, I'll be okay!" she says to the little concerned filly as she tries to get up
>rolling to get up

Grunting louder than Tim The Tool Man Taylor attempt to use my drinky drunky strength to pin him down.

Roll #1 5 = 5


I finish prepping my guns and look at Vigil locked into combat with the leader.
"Ey! Tell yer men to fallback cause in the next 30 seconds you aint gon be standin so you might as well do one last good thing before ah send ya to the afterlife…."
I fire both my guns into him
>rolling dual attack

Roll #1 1 + 1 = 2 / Roll #2 8 + 1 = 9


He ducks your swipe and knees you in the groin -2 hits (2/5) "You are foolish to fight…..don't you see you cannot win?"
You fail but remain grappled.
You and the big boar struggle with each other on nearly equal footing even though he is many time larger than you. The other boars a watching this in awe as you both fail to gain the advantage.
You line up a shot with the leader but suddenly you are tackled by one of the Boars you struck before. (helpless)
You run into the woods and can see her fluttering around lost crying "Tia! Tia! Where's Tia?!"
You fail to get up
"N-no…..i'm not gonna leave you here!" She tries to help you up. [1d10-1]

Roll #1 8 - 1 = 7


Celestia with surprising strength for her size manages to lift Emmy up (hits restored 5/4)

Roll #1 6 + 1 = 7


Grunting intensifies as I try to wrassle this hog to the ground.

Roll #1 8 = 8


She gets up with the help of Celestia.
She huffs, still felling a bit of pain, then says, "Thanks, now go!"
She then aims with her horn for a large tree in between her and the boars, and fires a bolt of magic at it.
>tl;dr magic bolt at tree

Roll #1 5 = 5


I get back up to my hooves
"You are damn persistant buddy…"

Roll #1 8 + 1 = 9

[Succeeds 5 single weapon]

Roll #1 1 + 3 = 4


"Tia?!" She starts following you fluttering beside you. You can see Emmy and Celestia through the trees
You put the boar in a leg lock dealing damage. He struggles out of the lock and you both resume grappling. The other hogs looking on are starting to place bets
"I bet Gurzog stomps her in 'bout 15 secunds."
"I dunno lookit dat face on her. She's foaming at da mouf."
The bolt only manages to sluff off some bark
"But what about you?!" The boar the thre the javelin has arrived "OI! AND OVAR DAT FILLY!"

The rock bounces off of him and he angrily charges at you [1d10]
"Tia!" Luna is flying into the middle of the engagement towards her sister. "NO LUNA! FLY AWAY"
A good amount of the army has now stopped to watch you and this boar duke it out. There are now fight breaking out IN the army over who's going to win this match. You are unable to pin him
The dog yells at his army
"WHAT ARE YOU DOING YOU FOOLS ATTA- oof!" Your fist explodes in his face with the righteous fury of the sun knocking him on his ass (helpless)

You lift the 230+ lb boar over your head but then you suddenly remember that you are a little pony and have no business lifting this kind of weight. At that moment your knees give way and you are crushed under Gurzog the Hog. (helpless)
Your shot misses him even at point blank and he grins at you eye's glowing [1d10+1]
You hurl your sword across the battlefield but no where in the direction of your target.
You throw the Boar off of Emmy as she struggles up to her hooves. Celestia and Luna are holding each other screaming as the other boar is bearing down on them.
You are up from helpless

You knock that boar helpless as well. Both are helpless, you can hear the other ones trying to bash down the big tree trunk. "KEEP BASHIN IT!" "Uh why don we go round it?" "TOO SLOW! BASH DIS LOG DOWN!"
You put another bullet in his and he goes down clutching his side helpless. The second attack misses.
Your attack misses. Maybe you hesitated, or maybe the boar rolled away in time….you can't tell.
You somehow hoist him over our head
"Well i'll be zogged."
one watching boar comments as they see Gurzog lifted up. You then throw him landing on his back and still helpless with the wind knocked out of him.

The follow you to the clearing where you left the townponies
This shot misses, you can see the majority of the boars have stopped ransacking the town to watch Cinnamon and Gurzog rasslin
You must not have it in you. Or maybe he's just too hard to hit. Regardless you see Lilly and the fillies run into the woods leaving you alone with the boars.
You end him……..suddenly his bosy starts bubbling and popping?

"Oi! Da boss got dead! Whaduwe do now?"
"I dunno about you but im watching dis here fight!"
He attempts to get up [1d10]

Roll #1 5 = 5


He fails to do so the boars are cheering
"Dat horse took down Gurzog! Wowee! Dat da strongest horse i ever seend!"


"Ok, now. Good news, the boars have been slowed down." I tell the towns people. "But, if we don't get moving now, they'll catch up any minute! So let's move out!" I say, rallying the towns folk.
I/We continue through the forest.


I put my bow away and go to collect my weapons from the battlefield before walking over to DA.

"Well that was easy. Idiot couldn't hit with a spell to save his life."


I grit my teeth seeing the swine still all around us
I then start firing on 5 random boars to show them what the situation is.
>rolling Rapid Barrage


Hearing their praise I stand up on my hind legs and flex my horsey muscles but I lose my balance and fall back on my tush.



Roll #1 5 + 1 = 6


You come to the clearing where you left the townsponies…….they're gone…….without a trace.
You fall down and suddenly it dawns on you that the fillies that you were charged to look after are……well you have no idea where they are actually.
You knock some of the boars down with your gun "Ey! Doya mind we're trying to watch dis fight here!" But the fights over…..da horse wun."
"Yeah and boss is dead……might as well call it a day……ALRIGHT YOU HOGZ LISTEN UP. WE GETTING OUTTA DIS MUCKIN PLACE YA HEAR?"
They begin gathering up the wounded and making for the forest. The big hog Gurzog walks away rubbing his head "Dat was a strong pony…"
You walk over to the corpse of the Dog, it has now exploded into…..popcorn. A giant pile of popcorn.


"Celestia, Luna, stay near me…" I tell them. I look for the villagers.

Roll #1 9 + 1 = 10


I sheaf my sword and put my shield on my back.

I turn to DA and Cinn

"Lets go meet back up with the others."


I walk up to the 'corpse' and take a piece and put it in my duster pocket
"Now id be lyan if ah sed I knew what this meant… I wonder why food keeps on tryan to take dem lil fillies…"


I spring up looking around frantically for any sign of the two fillys.


"Sounds lika plan baws…"
I say to Vigil


You can find no tracks the suggest they were captured by boars…..they must have been taken by something else. You can't tell what…..but clearly it didn't leave tracks on the ground.
You can tell the boars followed the villagers into the forest. You follow the tracks until you meet up with Lilly, Emmy(AFK), Celestia and Luna


"Wheres the villagers?"


I look to the two sisters giving them a bright friendly smile
"Well hay der Celestia, Luna… glad ta see ya two are still safe…"
I look to Lily and Emmy
"Thanks ta you two ah reckon. Me an baws cleared da town so ya can bring em folk back to der homes now…"


"Gone. Vanished, without a trace. One of the fillies ran off, you see, and I went to go look for her. And
well,…" I look around nervously…
"I don't know what happened…"
I suddenly feel great remorse and regret for my mistake.


"Vigil. Not boss."
"We fan out. They couldn't have gone far."


I examine the two money ba- I mean fillys to make sure there alright.


"Now dont you fret now lil missy… everyone makes mistakes, its how we fix things that matters…"
"Sure thing ba- I mean erm… Vigil? Odd name doncha think hehe"


"I agree. I was only gone for a second…"
'What if… no. No. They're fine. I promised them I'd get them through this…and I'll do it… right?'
I smile, faintly.
"Oh, great phoenix flames, how I hope you're right…"


"Brother Vigilance. Not that odd."
"No idea. Lets just see if we can find them."


>I was thinking that part
>Sorry, I should've made it clearer
I nod, in agreement.


"Alright then… How bout Lance…? Ah Tartarus, forget it. Vigil's right les go find us some townsfolk!"

(pause for the night,)

“So lemme guess, this is where we have to end the story tonight?” Twilight said disappointed. “Yes"
"But what happened to the villagers!?

"I would continue but I’m afraid I would talk you until sunrise.” Luna chuckled and smiled
Twilight sighed but then looked at the clock and yawned….it was far past time for sleep, and she had a big day ahead tomorrow.

“Sleep well Twilight Sparkle….our tale will continue.” and with that the Princess of the Night spread her wings and took to the moonlit sky. Twilight smiled and took one last look at the sky before going back downstair and drifting off to sleep in her soft bed with dreams of legendary tales of ponies and magic carrying her on through the night.

Twilight Sparkle trotted down the street and up the main avenue to the Royal Palace. She had reluctantly said goodbye to her friends at the train station promising to see them again soon. While she looked forward to seeing them again, Twilight also was also anticipating more story about the first bearers of the Elements. Her trot broke into a gallop and then into flight as she hurried to the palace in her excitement.

The excited young alicorn landed in the throne room and ran up to Celestia who was observing another stained glass window. “Princess! I know we have important lessons today but I was wondering if we could finis-” The princess held up a hoof, “Twilight…you’ll be happy to know….that is todays lesson.” “It is?” Twilight inquired “Indeed it is….and while we are at it….I would like you to accompany on a trip I have been wanting us to take for quite some time.” Celestia walked up the stairs to the observatory beckoning Twilight to follow.

Twilight had been here before and remembered it well. This was the highest spire of Canterlot where the Princess could watch over the Equestrian day as was her duty. Twilight sighed looking at the magnificent site and back at the princess who simply smiled. “Twilight let us fly together.” she said spreading her majestic wings and taking to the air. The young alicorn raised her own brand new wings and carefully took off. “Good….getting used to them I see.” “Rainbow Dash told me that it’s just like running except without using your legs!” Twilight nodded and smiled “Good then follow me, I have something to show you.”

Celestia soared high and through the clouds over the castle with Twilight carefully flying behind. The majestic spires of Canterlot receded behind as they both flew off towards the Everfree.

====In the distant past====
While Vigilance and Double Action dispatched the mysterious leader of the warband, Cinnamon Blossom entertained the hog army long enough for them to get bored with pillaging, while Lilly and Emmy lead the villagers into the forest.

The five friends and two alicorn fillies now stand in the middle of the Everfree as the afternoon turns to evening. They had managed to save both the two fillies and the town from further damage, however the villagers they had rescued are nowhere to be found.

It's a getting to dark for you to see (need to eat more carrots)
The area where Lilly left them is strewn with several dropped belongings.The tracks show that some were standing still when they dropped their things while other tracks start to run from where they were standing and then suddenly disappear. Other places you can find clear signs of a struggle. Broken tree branches, a small smear of blood.

The day has turned to night…..and quicker than you expected. Maybe you have lost track of time in the excitement.

"Do you hear something?" Celestia says. Luna fluttering beside her.

"Hello?……HELLO?!" you hear a voice call out from nearby


I immediately rush to the source of the voice


I follow him.


"Hello, whos there?"


I waddle after them.


Her ear perks up at this certain sound. She turns her head to where the voice came from, and takes a step in that direction. She hesitates, still frightened by the coming night, but goes to offer help.



You look up and there's a pony stuck in a tree.


"Don't you make a move! We're gonna get you down from there, okay?"


I look up at the tree and begin climbing
"Now just stay calm… well gecha down in just a sec…"


She looks up.
She takes her longbow and an arrow.
"Anyp0ny got some rope?"




"I do, but I think they have it under control."


I buck the tree with all my drunken strength.

Roll #1 8 = 8


Rolling to catch the pony from falling

Roll #1 9 = 9


"Wait what are you doing noaaa!"
You buck that tree with some serious drunken power.
The Mayor of Hoove's Run falls into your deer arms. You can recognize him by his Mayor Hat.


She watches their master plan, then back to her bow and arrow.
"…Well that works, too."


Perks up, from him being alive
"Oh! The Mayor! Praise the Phoenix, you're alive! Are they're others? She ask urgently


"Ah good, you're ok."

I pause.

"You hid in the tree didn't you?"


I take a large swig of sake and slur to the pony "Your welcome"

Roll #1 5 = 5


"I……no…..there are no others…..I climbed the tree you see when i heard the wings approaching………I errr…….clung to the branches and prayed to the sun for dear life…….by the time i opened my eyes……everyone was gone."
He is clearly shaken.


Almost bursting into tears, backs away.
"No… no… I can't have failed. First, Master Aldan, and now…"
I completely lose it and start crying


As the hearing of the word "sun," she returns her attention to the fact that there is now barely any.
"Um, let's go back to the city, we'll look for them tomorrow…" she says as shaken as the mayor.


"Coward. Even if you had to hide you don't need to be so shaken up about it. Who took the others?"


"WAiT!…….I…..errr I think i know where they took the villagers….." Pointing up to the tree
"You can see it from up there."


Rolling to climb tree and get a good look

Roll #1 6 = 6


"Can ya be more descriptive like about what took tha townsfolk?"


She has been quite riled up by this insult, but tries to keep her cool, and her sanity as the night approaches.

You climb up the tree and you can see an old ruined castle in the distance…..a short hike to the south.


"Guys! I see something! It looks like a ruin of some sort… Its only a short hike to the south."

Jumps down. Rolling.

Roll #1 3 = 3


"that sounds like da place ta be den…"


I turn to the Mayor.

"So what exactly are we walking into?"

I say, Bolstering myself.


You see Luna flutter down from behind where you were in the tree next to you she says softly.
"That place is scary……."
"I….I don't know….I had heard rumors of old ruins in the Everfree…….only old tales……they say this forest is older than the rest of the world. Pony folk around here are mighty wary of this place.


"Don't worry, Luna. We'll be fine…"
I hug Luna.
"Just stay close to us. Alright?"

Roll #1 2 = 2


"Just superstition. Nothing in there that doesn't' die when you stab it enough times. So you didn't see what took the others?"

I Bolster everyone else, including the Mayor.


"Um…" she hums as she looks to the last sliver of light from the sunset, still dreadfully worried of the night.


"You're not scared of the dark are you Emmy?"

I say noticing her.


Growing bored of listening to everyone talk I look around for something interesting like a butterfly or something shiny.


"Well, um…"
She then answers more softly then flutterquiet would, "yes."


I rustle through my saddle bag and pull out an oil lantern in my teeth smile
"Ah gawt dish ol tang…."






"Oh, thanks, but, it's not the dark that I'm qorried about…"
She looks up quivering, "It's the night…"


Celestia says,
"We have to rescue those ponies….it's because of us that they were taken."
The night has indeed come although it seems strange as you feel like the day should have been longer. Luna sees you getting nervous and in turn lands and starts visibly shaking as well. "A-are you afraid?"


"No… don't blame yourself. It's my fault. But, we do need to get back those ponies."


"Well, let's just say I've had a bad experience during one…"
her eyes drift over to Luna's, and she responds, "Yeah…"
She brightens up, and says, "But at least we're together!" and hugs her.

You see light bug. you can roll to catch it


"Go on."


"Ah agree with miss Celestia… we gotta go rescue them folk as soon as possible…"
I begin walking in the direction of the castle


I follow him, still listening to Emmy.


She seems a bit relieved as you say that and accepts the embrace, you manage to hide your fear.
Everyone is hiking through the woods
(will novel next post.)


She hesitantly follows.
"Well… I got lost in this forest, and…"
Her voice cracks at the last word, and she pauses.
"I don't really want to talk about it…" she says, turning her head away bashfully.



"It sounds like its making your will snap just listening to it. What are you afraid of?"


I begin checking my gear looking back at the group every now and then.
"Thats okay Emmy, if ya don wanna talk about it thats fine… but yer gonna have to face yer past one day…"


"Yeah, it's just the night…"
She pauses to get the words to explain her condition.
"Makes me feel anxious…"
Looking at Luna, she says, "Don't worry, I'll be fine."



"The night is nothing to be afraid of. All you have to fear is horrible creatures from the darkest corners of reality rising from below the earth to devour you and all you hold dear……"

"But that could happen in daytime too."


"…You're not helping."

You come upon a dreary looking castle after crossing a river and a spooky forest and a dangerous rope bridge mostly without incident.
Tired from the long hike you are reduced by -1 hits

Ahead lies a ruined causeway you can enter the structure from.


>Double Action


"Now doncha worry none Emmy, whatever yer afraid of I bet my bottom bit I can riddle it fulla holes before it can even think of tryin somethin"
I say giving her a confident smile
"Vigil can help too…"


"Point is, you can be attacked, assaulted, oppressed, poisoned, stabbed, torn to pieces, eaten alive, flayed by barbarians, burned by heathens, and ripped mentally apart at any time, in any place. SO if you want to live long, the only cure is to be strong as you can be, and face the world with broad shoulders, puffed out chest, and a stiff upper lip."

I say, somewhat posing.


"Hmmm… ahm suprised that castle is still standin… ah well time to free us some townsfolk!"
I make my way into the structure

but is unamused by this.
She enters, still somewhat scared, but confident.


I follow them inside, shield and sword at the ready.


I follow Double.


She summons armor for herself.

Roll #1 2 = 2



You follow inside the castle……………as you walk past the threshold the ancient doors shut behind you.
You are too afraid to summon your armor.

"Well that's not good……." The Mayor gulps.

Stairs lead upwards through a ruined stone roof.


"Eh… Could be worse…"
I head up the stairs

Her knees buckle. At least she can summon a great sword.

I follow DA


Heads up the stairs


I try my best not to trip and fall as I waddle up the stairs.


your fear is preventing you from summoning your bow from the aether. Celestia is standing next to you. "Wait….it's alright…I can light out path…" She concentrates and her horn glows producing a small yellow light.
Making your way across to the ruin citadel you come to the ancient wooden doors of an old forgotten palace….the doors are ajar and you can hear music coming from inside.


I just shrug and begin trotting into the room with the music

You come into the room and you see an empty throne room with a white pony with dragonfly wings sitting in the throne room.
>pic related
Vigil and Emmy recognizes this pony……she used to be the former queen of equestria……..but for some odd reason you can't place her name. Besides that however you are absolutely certain this is her. The magic dragonfly wings and everything.

Double Action can tell that you all are not completely alone in here, there are several shadowy guards standing just out of sight in this throne room.

The dragonfly winged unicorn puts down the instrument she was playing. ""I've been waiting on you all……" She smiles "I wanted to see it for myself."


"It has been too long. I thought you dead."


"Well howdy maam… err ah take it yer royalty?"
I say looking at her tiny cute little crown
"Should ah call ya yer highness?… Anyways were lookin fer some lost townsfolk, yah know where they mightve been?"
I say glancing every now and then to the sillhouttes of the totally non-insectoid guards


Remains silent, and looks at the Alicorn


Upon seeing the white pony I stop attempting to whistle and just stare at her. I whisper to double action "Who the hell is this?"


She goes through the door and gasps.
She bows down in honor.

Roll #1 3 = 3


"Your highness…"

Roll #1 8 = 8


"I was dead Brother Vigilance……and reborn…" She looks at you strangely not the same little new queen you remember before you left on our journeys. There's a hunger in her eyes.
"Something like that…..we all have a purpose mine is to my subjects. They are my children."
"It's a shame no one remembers really…" She says flatly.
You see Luna has a very angry sour look on her face and Celestia doesn't look all to happy either.
She ignores you and stands up fluttering over to Celestia lifting up her chin and examining her face

"I can't scarcely believe it…..It's just like the prophecy so many years ago….from the time of Platinum……"

"On a certain day, to uncertain parents, incarnate Moon and Sun are born.
Neither blight nor age can harm them, the Curse-of-Hate before them flees.
In caverns dark Love's pure eye sees, and makes to shine the Moon and Sun.
A scholar's voice unites the ponies, Three tribes call her Princess
A warrior's hand unites the Equestrians……………..stop me if you've heard this before."


"A few times. Some old madman's legend. What do you know of it?"


She gets up and looks towards Celestia, and is slightly concerned.

Roll #1 6 = 6


"Cant say that ah have…"
I say as i look at her strangely, then the 'guards'
"Ah donno, just roll with it"
I whisper back
"So then who are yer subjects… cause I know Equestria aint got nopony seated on the throne…"


Stays silent and listens.


"That these fillies are supposed to be the future rulers of Equestria…." she says looking into the white one's eyes strunching her cheeks together. "They just don't know it yet…." She walks away and strolls back to her throne
"The most loyal of my court of course! What is a Queen without a retinue of hosts? My subjects are loyal enough to follow their queen into the deepest darkness!" She sighs."But my kingdom is lost……..A queen without a kingdom………A queen usurped…" she says the last words venomously looking at the two white fillies.


I shove my hoof in my mouth after realizing she heard me. I think to myself "I wonder if she can read thoughts? OH GOD I BET SHE CAN READ THOUGHTS! Shes gonna banish me or lock me up if she knows abou- No gotta not think about it gotta not think about it totally not thinking about it" Looking extremely panicked my eyes dart around the room in search of a window or something I can use to make a quick escape encase she can actually read my thoughts.


I stare at her expression wide-eyed and give her a nervous smile
"well then yer highness if ye can point us to where tha townsfolk went we can just be on our way and get out of yer mane…"


"You seem upset my Lady. If these two would make better rules then you, then it is in everyone's best interest that they rule."




She watches her former queen with utmost concern.


"Oh the towns folk right……" She says bored
"Don't worry we will get to that first I want to a test of sorts…."
She twitches. "My rules was taken from me…..not by war, or intrigue, but by a curse. My claim is as legitimate as ever, what do these two have to offer?"
You did whisper out loud she might have heard you that…but you probably haven't rationalized that yet. There are not escape routes except the throne room door which is closed. The Mayor stands there infront of it watching the events quietly


You notice Philomena is making sounds from where you have her hidden away.

"What kinda test?"


"Watch yourself my Lady. Your words have malice in them."

I look straight at her.

"What curse are you speaking of? And where are the townspeople?"


I take a look at Philomena "Are you alright?"


I fall down flat on the ground crying loudly "I swear I didn't know it was an orphanage! It only happened onc- twice! I promise ill never play with fire again just don't take away my whiskey or banish me!" I whimper to the princess thing covering my face with my hat and sobbing loudly.


I walk up to her and pat her on the shoulder
"There there… noponys gon take yer whiskey…"

"A line of questioning that is inadvisable Brother Vigilance…..the answers only lead to hatred, pain, and despair……unless." She looks at you in a strange sultry way "That is something you enjoy….."
"I want to see how well you can own up on your promises of protecting those fillies. I want to test you in the only real way to test a mortal's soul…..through mortal combat." She grins devilishly.
The phoenix gives a loud cry that echoes throughout the chamber. The Queen holds her head in pain and Cinnamon notices the Mayor does too. .
A green flash of light later and standing where the White Queen used to be is a black and decrepit looking pony with ragged teal hair and a small black crown.
>pic very much related.

"A-a Phoenix! Unexpected…..but I matters not….." She begins fluttering towards a hole in the ceiling. "My subjects……do your duty and die well for your queen!"

You watch helplessly as she escapes the buiding (Far Range) as you are surrounded by five smaller armored ponies that look just as decrepit as the former Queen. Solid colored almond eyes, fangs, very insect like. Oh yeah the guy who you thought was the Mayor….he's one of them too, still standing guarding the door.


"The Queen is an insectoid abomination. Of course she is."

Vigil says to himself sarcastically.

You get up like a beast ready to rumble with the bugies

You manage to knock him down and off of Double (not Flag) he looks like he is seriously wounded (and helpless).
"NO…Mister Vigilance….you're not gonna kill him are you!?' You hear the white filly pleads over the sound of the battle

All the changelings are defeated. Luna and Celestia are holding each other apparently very frightened.


I turn to the fillies.

"Something the matter?"


I tie all the changelings together using my rope to fit in their holes like a needle in a thread. I make a very large changeling necklace.


I lift him up
"Where are the other town ponies! WHERE ARE THEY! TELL ME!"
roll intimidation

Roll #1 2 = 2


"I don't think there were any other townsponies Lilly."


After lifting up sexy Braeburn, she looks around, seeing the corpses of those insectoid ponies. She then looks to the fillies, and says, "Don't worry, it's over, now…"


"No one lies to me."
I ready for an attack


"These beings apparently can change their shapes. I doubt there ever was a pony town in the first place."


I dust myself off looking around at the helpless bugs before picking up each one of them and putting them all in a neat pile.


I glare on at the changeling, angrily.


"Bug queen said shed give em back after the test… which it looks like we passed ah reckon…"

"I…..just……thank you…..for not killing them…..I….I don't want anyone to die because of us…"
The white filly says in a half sob
He is out like a light. There are some moaning conscious ones though nearby
All the insectoid things are still alive
"She's a big meanie!" little Luna says

Pausing for the night (outro next post)

Night was beginning to fall as the two princesses were joined by the third over the trees of the Everfree. Twilight was starting to tire from the long distance flight when Princess Luna chimed in. “We are here.” Finally they begin to descend landing deep in the forest. Twilight landed happily rolling on her back in the soft underbrush, “Ahh….good to be back on the ground.” “Come Twilight we are near…..” Celestia said passing her by walking through a thicket of dark trees. “Wait a moment” Twlight pondered the oddly familiar surroundings when she saw the Castle looming in the distance, unchanged since when she had last visited nearly three years ago. “You mean? This?….”

“Yes Twlight and there is more….” The two elder princesses strolled up the ancient causeway followed by the puzzled young alicorn.

The three princesses stood in the old throne room of the ancient forest citadel. This wasn’t the first time Twilight had explored this crumbling old castle. She had been here previously. Back when she had first visited the everfree that fateful night she had confronted Nightmare Moon. Twilight looked up at her mentor, “Isn’t this the castle you and Princess Luna once lived in?” Celestia chuckled, “Is that what they say about this place? Well no Twilight not exactly. This place is far far older than that.” She pointed to nearby the wall that were obscured in darkness.

Twilight walked over to the wall and looked back at Celestia and Luna. Celestia nodded to her encouragingly. After a moment of hesitation the young alicorn created a small light which immediately illuminated. Twilight suddenly gasped when she finally could make out the etched surface.
====In the distant past====

The five friends travelled through foreboding the Everfree Forest attempting to track down the lost villagers. They came upon an old ruined castle which was near the site from where the villagers disappeared. Coming upon an ancient throne room they met a strange pony who claimed and appeared to be the spiteful former Queen of Equestria The queen revealed herself to be not as she once was, transformed into a hideous creature. She left the castle after ordering her guardians to test the skills of the five friends in combat. After dealing with the strange insectoid ponies, the party stands in the throne room with the two alicorn fillies and five unconscious guardians.


I lift up one of the unconscious guards (after making sure hes successfully hog tied) and slap him back out of consciousness.
"Hey there!"


Stares at the guards as the other interrogate them. She walks over to the to fillies "are you alright?"


I stand next to him as he wakens the guard, turning to Double Action.

"We should take them to the nearest town and turn them in, before we continue onwards."


She just stands in silence. That was some serious shit that went down, man.


I waddle around looking for something like a quill and ink or something that could be used to write/draw with.


"Just a minute, gotta know if all them townsfolk were fake or none. Ah hava hunch they gotta be here somewhere, otherwise they woulda just kidnapped Lunablue over there when it was easy…"


I sip my sake while searching for the stuffs.

He doesn't reply although he appears to be barley conscious.
Luna flies over one of the unconscious guards with a curious look on her face. Celestia just seems frightened of something as she watches the interrogation.
Celestia blurts out "Yes! Please…….don't hurt them." Luna still hovering above the unconscious changeling say "But what about the other ponies Tia?"
Something on the walls catches your eyes as you stand there watching.
There is a moldy bookshelf in a corner nearby containing some ruined books. But you see no quils or inkpots.


The wall has suddenly caught her attention. She walks over to in in curiosity, and studies it.


I walk over to Luna, and frowns "I…". She stumbles around unsure of what to say.


"I don't think there are…" she begins to say, but her voice trails off


Extremely disappointed that I couldn't find anything to draw naughty things on the unconscious guards faces with I search the bookshelf for books with lots of colorful pictures in them to amuse myself with.

Roll #1 3 = 3


"Well shoot, ah dont wanna hurt em anymore than whats already done, ah just think that they know where the kidnapped townsfolk is is all…"
I look at the changeling with a sympathetic look
"Yea yea, getting beat sucks… mind doin us a favor an a good deed an tell us where all them innocent pony types are? Iffin theyre really innocent pony types anyways…"
I say rubbing my snout on my sleeve


I wait for the Changling to respond to Action.

You see a wall of glyphs written in the ancient equestrian style. It depicts the story of the Platinum dynasty. You recognize the scenes from the founding of Equestria. Princess Platinum is there with the six other founders representing the genesis of Harmony between Ponykind that ended the Everwinter. In the next scene the six founders stand before Starswirl the Bearded who proclaims a new age of Equestria and crowns Platinum Queen. The next few panels depict the history of Equestria, wars with both the Dragon Hordes and the fabled Crystal Empire, and times of Peace and prosperity. The last few scenes depict something you are not all too familiar with. (continue reading?)
"They're here….they have to be!"
You pick out a random book……..and suddenly the bookshelf swings away revealing a secret door.
The changeling weakly holds up his hoof and points at the door that just opened.


I walk over to the wall, admiring the panels.

"A proud history, isn't it?"

I ask Emmy.


I groan, worriedly. "… please be safe… Luna, Tia, stay close to us, ok?" I say with a worried expression.


Barely able to grasp the concept of a regular door I stare at the door/bookshelf amazed then push it back in place just so I can open it again.


She admires the rich history.
Then she is mildly suprised by Vigilance's sudden comment.
She turns to him and validates his thought, "Oh, yes."
She turns back to the wall as she continues, "It's amazing to see how the land we live in came into being…"
Suddenly, a secret door. She turns her head to it, and walks over to it.
"What's this?"


I look at him with a pleased expression and a smile
"Thankya kindly. Sorry about the whole cursed thing…"

I begin making for the now open secret door catiously, weary that it is more likely than not a trap.


"I'll stay here with the prisoners………."

I say, suddenly curious about the panels, I continue observing/reading.


"can you watch the fillies as well? They'll be safer here, I think…"


"Of course."


"thank you…" she thinks for a moment. "should I stay up here as well? Just in case?"


"If theres anything down there besides a holding cell I'm sure they'll call for us. Its up to you."

The final scenes depict recent years with some events clearly recognizable such as the razing of the East by the great Red Dragon and his horde. The story of the lost Queen (…….you still can't quite place her name.) is shown. The queen meets a prince whose face and name have been scratched out. She courts this prince be he rejects her advances. The Queen uses a dark magic to concoct a love potion. She uses it on the Prince……….(Continue reading?)
You close and open the bookshelf again. It is indeed real.
The look up at you and nod. Celestia says "Be careful…."
You open the back panel revealing a staircase that goes downwards into darkness.


I head down the stairs, focused on my goal.


I continue reading. I turn to Luna and Celestia.

"Do you know these stories?"


She has not looked at the wall long enough to catch this very interesting piece of history, and instead advances down the stairs.


"alright. I need to take a breather anyways… Maybe study some history from these walls…" she stares at the walls, not exactly examining them, letting her mind drift elsewhere…. She thinks to herself "Aldan… Why did you want me to visit that statue…"


I stand there, thinking about my mission.


"Now careful Em, we don know if its a trap or somethin, best be on guard…"
I say peering down the staircase walking down catiously


Even more amusing the second time I continue opening and closing the secret door gradually doing it faster each time with a look of amusement and wonder on my face.


"Yeah," she says to acknowledge Double Action.
She then gets up on her hindlegs and summons a pair of sai to her free forelegs.

The prince falls head over heals in love with the Queen. For a time the whole of Equestria and beyond reflects the joy of the Queen and her Prince. But it does not last. The Queen had come to rely on the love potion in entangling her prince, but her heart's desire was not truly fulfilled. She broke the enchantment, thinking the prince would have truly fallen in love with her. The Cold Prince however returned to his former senses. In his anger he cursed the Queen. Forever she and her followers would hunger for love that wasn't there's.

The two fillies shake their heads but suddenly Celestia says "Wait……that's." She points to the image of a red maned white alicorn looking down on the events with a sadness in here eyes. "Mother!" Luna exclaims.
After a few times of doing this you break the old door off the hinges.
You pass through the now doorless entrance into a downward spiraling stone stairs. At the bottom of the steps you notice two things. #1 the dungeon is completely dark. #2 There is green slim covering the walls.


I turn my head in surprise. "hm? What is it?"


She has a confused look on her face as the magic fades away revealing no weapons. She tries once more to summon some weapons, specifically a pair of sai.
When she reaches the bottom of the staircase, she lights her horn to be able to see what is down here.

Roll #1 1 = 1


"You know the alicorn in this picture?"


I pull out my oil lantern from my saddlebag and light up the area.
"Shtay closh… Dark plashes are perfect fer ambushes…"
I say with the lantern in my teeth


I stare at the broken bookshelf door with mournful eyes gently touching it before waddling after the others down the stairs.


"That's…..that's our Momma!" Luna repeats
Celestia looks up at the picture wide eyed.
Your fear of the night is getting to you, After a few tries you finally manage to summon some worn looking sais. (-1 quality)
You do not manage to light your horn.
You light up the area. This looks like a dungeon. One of your buddies told you about getting locked up in one of these things for a fortnight. He talked about some ponies in there that were half bone they had been there so long. This place seems strange because green slime covers the walls in all directions. You are currently in what seems to be a hallway with several doorways on either side going down until the end.
You bump into Double Action when you make it downstairs. [1d10]

Roll #1 8 = 8


Cinnamon gets stuck in some slime covering the floor. (continue actions)


"Where are you two from by the way? You fell from the sky. Did you fall from the Moon? Or one of the Planets or Stars?"


Kneels down before the two fillies looking at them in the eyes "tell me about your mother."


She unsommons her sai, they're useless.
Then she consents and gets close to Double Action, almost cowering.
She looks around and says, "It's a bit, um," she pauses to gulp, "creepy in here…"


I help Cinnamon out of the slime
"Alright… now we know the slime aint somethin ta touch…"

I try to unstick myself.

Roll #1 4 = 4


"It is… we don wanna be here longer than we have to thats for sure…"


Scratch that instead I use my drinky drunky identifying powers to figure out what the slime is!
I sniff the slime on the wall then lick it.


Luna beams "Momma's real sweet! She tells us stories all the time, though some don't get finished……" She looks sad for a moment.
Celestia is still wide eyed. She closes her eyes and shakes her head.. "I…….I don't remember…"
You only mange to get more goo on you.
You yank miss Blossom out of the green icky stuff and set her on her hooves.
You could have sword you heard something.
It tastes like your moms old cooking……if it had been left out in the sun for 7 days, and puked on by a dog.


"what was the last story she told you? Could you tell it to me?" says kindly, smiling warnly


Her ears twitch at the sound.
She turns her head to the sound.
"What was that?"
>rolling perception?

Roll #1 2 = 2


"Well heres ta hopin we find them townsfolk in this here dungeon…"

I say while opening the first door on the right


"A shame. How is it that you remember your mother but not where she lived? Seems peculiar."


I frantically try to wipe taste off my tongue with my hooves forgetting that they are covered in the slime I was previously stuck in.


I toss her my flask of whiskey to help her get the taste out of her mouth

Celestia is still looking blank
Luna looks like she is trying to remember "It was the one about the old wizard. He made a bunch of spells but never any friends. And his last spell never got finished because of that!"
"I…….I-It's all a blank spot……….I don't know what to say….." She holds her head in the spot where she hit it a day ago.
You only manage to get more in your mouth. It is now a party in your mouth, and everyone is throwing up.
There is no door here just what appears to be several large insect cocoons hanging off the ceiling of the cell.


Maybe you're just hearing things


"I could have sword…"
She listens harder to whatever that might have been.

Roll #1 8 = 8


I gently kiss the spot on her forehead, like a mother would to her child "it'll come back to you soon enough… Would you like to hear a story my master told me while we wait?"


I frantically open the flask and poor the whiskey down my throat in an attempt to wash away the horrible taste.


I stop to think

"Worth a shot"

I put my hand on Celestia's head and cast Mend.

Roll #1 5 + 2 = 7


I set my lantern down and take out my rope and make a lasso. And wrangle me up some caccoon.

You try and silence your mind…….but you can't hear anything else. However you cannot shake the feeling that you are being watched.
She smiles "I love stories!"
It works. but there's still a nasty aftertaste in your mouth. But that's okay you are now drunker.
She closes her eyes as you do this and then opens them again. "…….No…….It's all still a blur. I can only remember……her face."
You manage to free all of the cocoons attached tot he ceiling in this room. Some start to squirm when they hit the ground.


I smile. "alright. It's called "the Phoenix's flames." (MY GOD, WHAT HAVE I GOTTEN MYSELF INTO! Prepare for wall o text…)


I turn to listen to Lilly's wall of text.


I check out one of the closest cacoons catiously. Remembering the first time we trusted 'the mayor' that this could all be a trap.
"Em, Cinn… dont yall ladies go too far now… this place gives me tha creeps!"
I shout back into the hallway

I try to rip open the cacoon with my barehooves.

She is creeped out by this unshakable feeling, but tries to shake it off in vain.
She sees Double Action roping the cocoons, and gasps as she sees some of them move.
"Is there somep0ny in there?!"
She rushes to one and examines it.


"Careful! It might be a trap!"
I warn her


The look at you in anticipation for a story.
There's pony in there. You can tell because of the hooves. "Mrrrrphrhrprhrrprhrrh!" you hear muffles cries. (Do you free him?)
You tear it open revealing an unconscious unicorn.


I waddle into the room after Emmy and watch horrified as this creepy ass shit takes place.


(hue) "once there was a fierce dragon who plagued the land. He was tall, mighty and as big as an entire mass of land! where ever he went, he brought death and destruction to all the land. Many tried to defeat the massive harbinger, but they all met the same fate. But one stallion, who ventured on a quest of great importance, even to go as far into Tartarus and back, found an enchanted sword, that was said to be strong enough to defeat the dragon. With sword in hoof, he challenged the dragon to combat that lasted days and night! One day, the ponys strength was ebbing, and the dragon gained the upper hoof."


You stand there dumbstruck at the creepy ass shit taken place.


File: 1375161889065.gif (470.32 KB, 256x192, raresdoublegasp.gif) ImgOps Google

"What happened?!"


"but then, suddenly, a miracle happened… The ponies all over Equestria prayed for the stallion to be victorious, and then, his blade began to glow, fueling him with renewed vigor! He threw his blade at the beast and it flew true, and cut off the dragons head! And like that, he was vanquished! But it was too late… The dragon had already scoured the land. It was barren… A wasteland… But then, the sky was set ablaze by a massive fire bird, the the earth opened up! From the earth, rose a pedastle….".


I rip open the caccoon and free the pony

"Looks like this is their way o ropin up their prisoners… really creepy if ya ask me"


The firebird perched itself on the pedastle, and burst into flames! But these were not flames of destruction! It was from these flames that life was returned to Equestria. You see, these were the flames of the Phoenix! Life was restored to the lands and Equestria was once again, at peace…" (da end)


"OH! A dragon!…………what's a dragon?" Luna asks.
The unicorn is clearly unconscious and does not reply.
You free what appears to be the mayor of Hooves Run from a cocoon.


"It's really creepy, regardless!" she says as she tries to get the pony out from the chrysalis.


From eating slime and seeing ponies being ripped out of cocoons my stomach can handle no more I go vomit back in the other room.


"A firebreathing reptile. Most of them have wings. And Lily's story is heroic, if fictional."


"Oh great… another one…"
I say sighing
"Alright mayor…. errr… can ya tell me somethin thatll prove yer not an insect?"
I say looking at him skeptically


"What happened to the stallion that stopped the dragon?" Celestia asks
"Sounds scary!" Luna exclaims.
You free the female unicorn from the cocoon. She is still unconscious.


I nod at Vigil. "it's an old legend my people tell."


"sad to say, his wounds were to great…"


"Nothing wrong with legends as long as everyone knows its a legend. Pretty good story in any case."


"Thank you Thank you THANK YOU For freeiin-! I err……what now? What do you mean insect?"
Celestia looks down "Oh…."
"Yeah a great story!" Luna says.


She huffs as she finishes freeing the unicorn, then tells Double, "Come on, we've gotta free them!"
She summons a scythe to aid her in her prisoner freeing plan.

Roll #1 4 = 4


(I haven't done anything like that since Charons backstory) I smile at celestia "do not worry, according to legend, he found peace and paradise in the afterlife." I look at Luna and smile "I am glad you liked it


"Nevermind… ya wanna help us free yer townsfolk?"

I say working on the next caccoon

"Theres tons o other cells like this one with prolly just as much of these goosacks in em… course I reckon youd best stick within eyesight, might have one er two spies lyin around…"


"Cinnamon wait! I reckon we should stick together…"
I shout after her


I pay no attention to your words and continue emptying my stomach onto the ground.


"Well……atleast he found happiness." Celestia says
You puke todays meal all over the floor. You have somehow managed to create an even worse smell and taste,
You summon a worn scythe but it's good enough to get the job done. You free the rest of the ponies. After a few more minutes of work you free several dozen cocoons all containing residents of Hoove's Run.
He helps you and you are joined by more and more residents of the old town. Some are unconscious and being carried on other ponies backs.


As she frees the last one she announces, "That's the last one," and wipes the sweat off her forehead.


"I am pretty sure that warrior never existed Celestia. So there is little reason to be upset over him."


I look toward the mayor
"Ya think yall can get back ta town in one piece? Its pretty dark out there an ah dont want yall to get kidnapped again by another group of bugs…"

Celestia ponders that for a moment.
Luna says "Even if it isn't true it's still a good story!"
You stand in the middle of a crowded dungeon with the freed residents of Hoove's Run reuniting. You still can't shake that feeling of being watched.
"Oh my yes! Ermmmmm could you show us the way out of the forest?"

She gets a ghastly chill up her spine.
She walks over to Double Action, and asks, "Hey, Double, do you ever get the feeling that you're being watched?" while looking around paranoid.


"Well we di'ent come this far only ta leave the job half done did we?"
I say smiling at him
"well normally I suggest a bit of rest for the rest of em ponies to get their bearings and maybe get a little shut eye… least till dawn breaks"
I shudder
"but this here place gives me tha creeps, and I bet it does to yall too… so whenever yall are ready ill call up the other guys up top lookin at that fancy wall paintin and well take yall home."

"well shoot of course ah do! we done saved a buncha townsponies an they dont even know who we are! dont be too offended if they start starin now…"


"It was a decent enough story yeah."


"No, not like that, but, like someone's observing our every move, plotting against us…"

“I never imagined…..”, said Twilight dumbstruck. “A bit of history not in the books….for sure.” Said Luna flatly. Twilight looked closer at the sad story depicted in the faded glyphs. She felt pity for the poor queen who would later on become a dark figure in her own life.

Celestia looked up at the open hole in the ceiling and spread her wings, “Alright Twilight I believe you understand now, come let us continue….the night is young……right sister?”
Luna smiled and and nodded as both princesses began to fly out of the castle, followed by the awkwardly flying Twilight.
