Last time on the Eye of the Storm

A party member died horribly while our resident nurse was busy cuddling with the captain in her cabin.

Nothing else happened, so let's get on with it.


get into some inconspicuous shadows and make sure my disguise is still up to par

Roll #0 5 + 2 = 7



So where are we?
The dunkey left, right?
Can't we follow?


See if I've cried off all my tears.

Roll #0 7 = 7


>implying there was anything that could've saved that train wreck

"So… as much as I would like to stay here, with you…"
I giggle.
"I should probably catch up to the rest of the group though. Who knows what trouble they've gotten themselves into!"
I give her a kiss.


Sister is home, be back in 20

You need not worry, looks like you are still fully trapped

The rest of the party went back to the ship to carry Halions corpse out of the tavern. You should probably go check on them and not split off from the party.

Looks like you calmed your shit at least


I sigh and walk back to the ship.


Oh Spirits.
That was terrible.
But I have a mission, don't I? Just… Label that herb as poisonous, or something.
Walk on the bridge and take a fresh breath.


"C'mon, we gots da get to de cap'n!"


good, now follow the group back and wait onthe deck of the ship


She wrinkles her nose in disapproval but smiles as you give her a kiss

"They best not mess this up… this is important after all."

The entire party is back on deck of the ship carrying the dead body of Halion. The remaining crew aboard seem very confused and taken aback by the scene, none of them willing to approach you and instead casting the occasional glance at the scene.


"We're one short and not better off. Where to we go from here?"


"Ah… Ah think we'd bury him at sea."


After the unfortunate death of the scrolls, does it seem I can in any way fix the situation?

Roll #1 4 = 4


"Bad guys folks. I know this might be hard on you children, but our puppy just died. We'll buy a new one once you grow a bit more resposible!"


"Ya, but dese be not normal pones."
"Who is that? I didn't see him on our trip."


"Just shut it, ya did nah move a hoof for him!"
"Dat's right… We gotta take him to his tri- Family."


"Too bad. I was trying to get our job done, then you all got sidetracked by the first stray dog we came across."


A knock can be heard on the door of the captain's cabin

"Captain… I uh… I think ya might want to come see this."

She frowns and motions Helping Hooves to get up and dressed again, doing the same herself.

"I'll be there in a moment."

"Yes madam."

The mare is watching you intently, looking quite concerned after what happened here >>200632

"Mister Luck? Are you alright?"

He's not on the ship yet.


"He was here tah help us, you heartless monster!"
shout at him.


Am I?
I am, right?
I mean, nothing bad is about to happen is it?
"Give me… ten seconds to make sure"
I brace for potential spontaneous disaster

Roll #1 3 = 3


[TL]"Calm down, ya know he is an arse."[TL]


"I didn't find his behaviour really useful, my dear."


I do the same and follow her.
"What's wrong?…"


[TL]"Ah shoul'af heard ya sooner, sista…"[/TL]
Move close to her and try an embrace.
"Don'tcha call me that."

Roll #0 8 = 8


make sure the hood is well shading me from the light and wait

Roll #0 6 = 6


She opens up the door and whispers in your ear

"Act natural."

Following the crewmember that called her to the deck, she is confronted with the scene. She stares at the mangled corpse for a while, one of her ears twitching a little.

"What… What in the name of everything that is holy happened?"

Somepony throws his wastebucket on the street, covering you in a mixture of horseshit, horsepee and garbage.

Wysteria looks like she's about to vomit.

Between the thick layer of clouds and your hood, there is no way the sun will be messing with you now.


"The doggy died. The informant sort of got away since I was the only one actually doing our job. He wasn't there in the pub, it was only an illusion if him. That's about it."


"…and there we go. No. No I'm not.
So now that that is out of the way, is there a way I can somehow repay for your loss?"

Roll #1 4 = 4


Look away and try not to meet her eyes.

Roll #0 5 = 5


Do I notice anything different about the captain?
"A series of unfortunate occurrences not made better by anyone in this party"

Roll #0 9 = 9


"Da dog sort of killed itself. Then that arse ran off and blew our deal."

I point at Shaky.


"Rigth, you were doing so much for it. At least I tried to talk with him, then he got away after he enjoyed watching the chaos the pooch created."


Yup, she vomits.

"By… gah… taking a bath?"

She magics out a paper tissue to wipe her mouth with.

"Just follow me to the Wavedancer, you can clean yourself there, alright?"

She's not wearing her hat. That's about it.

She grinds her teeth

"So nothing? You managed to do nothing? In fact you somehow managed to lose a member of my expedition in this short period of time?"

For a moment it looks like she's about to have an serious outburst, but as she glances over to Helping Hooves she calms down considerably.

"Summer Wind, Sparkleworks, clean up this mess. Get mister Halion a proper coffin so we can send him back home for a burial."

Two member of the crew quickly pick up the body of the deceased dog and carry him belowdecks.


"Ya were the only one to talk to him, so it was your fault he left!"


"Wavedancer? A club of some ill repute by the sound of it. Or am I thinking of an obscure fighting technique… oh curse my forgetful mind. Well yes, please, lead on."
Lets hope the ship didn't sink by now or something

Roll #1 9 = 9


with a sly smile wink an eye at her before she heads off.
"Does anyone know where this contact can be refound?"

Roll #0 9 = 9


"It was because of the pooch, really. He distracted the informant then went and died."


Yeah stay silent. Maybe help'em with the coffin.

Roll #0 10 = 10


the captain i mean


"We might try dat pub again, da people there seemed alright. He might reappear."


She just glares at you wordlessly.

"No, no. It's a ship you see. I'm part of a expedition send by Port-o-bella to figure out what is causing the recent increase in natural disasters."

She leads you through town, making sure there is a considerable distance between the two of you. You reach the harbor quite soon and she leads you aboard. Looks like something is happening.

She gives you a stern look.

"Let my crew handle this. You and your friends need to get your damn job done. To ma-"

The captain interrupts herself as Wysteria walks onto the deck again, a very smelly and filthy looking stallion in tow.

"Lady Wysteria? Who on earth is this… fellow?"

She eyes Running Luck carefully, looking more than a little disgusted at the less than pleasant smell he's emitting.


"Oh my…" Rolling not to throw up.

Roll #0 10 = 10


"Ain't this just grand. What's up with the homeless fellow?"


try not to look too disgusted at the newcomer

Roll #0 3 = 3


"Oh come now the lot of you. 'Tis but shit. Well some of the liquid part isn't. But I assure you as far as things getting dropped on you go it is much preferable to something sharp or heavy. Now if you could kindly point me to a place to clean myself?"
I can probably find a place or way to clean myself without something horrible happening to me or anyone else

Roll #1 2 = 2


I tap my hooves on deck.
"I'll be at titt's if ya'lls need me!"


hold my nose and point at the ocean
"If you please"


"Oh please, ya never saw some dirt before?"
get some water and splash it over the dirty newcomer.

Roll #0 2 = 2


You aren't fazed by the smell at all. The contents of your stomach are completely safe from harm, thankfully.

You look more than a little disgusted, even more so than the captain is. Very impressive.

You slip on some of the shit dripping off of your body and fall on top of the captain, ruining her very expensive and neat looking uniform by smearing shit all over it.

Her response to this assault is flinging you into the sea with an impressive feat of magic.


Seeing as how he is in the sea already, you decide to just splash a bucket of water onto the captain to clean of the shit off of her uniform.

She storms off back to her cabin without saying another word.


Surely I can swim and get back on board without any further disasters.
Maybe a friendly sea creature of some sort might aid me even.

Roll #1 4 = 4


"Capn' seemed like such a nice lass too. Well I'm off to a pub! Ya comin', Seas?"
I head off back into Titt's.



Roll #0 6 = 6


Crap, save the captain!

Roll #0 9 = 9


This is truly a disaster.
Do I find it funny?

Roll #1 7 = 7


"Ugh.. good going jackasses"
quietly follow this idiot


"Ya dimwit! Ah gotta help'em first! Ah don't wanna repeat the dog!"


Looks like Wysteria was quicker than the killer shark that was about to eat you alive. She uses her telekinesis to pull you back aboard.

"Mister Luck please, at least try to restrain yourself around the captain."

She eyes you over.

"At least you are clean now."

You are back at the tavern. Looks like that donkey is still sitting in his corner, sans hat.

You what?


"Well shaky? You lead"


I wink at the customer whom I was dancing to before heading to the Donkey.
"Didya have ta bring him along?"


It's somewhat funny as far as disasters go.


Ops. I thought she had fallen from the ship too.
Follow mah sista!


I'm still on the ship

Okay, I can allow a chuckle then.
Go back to that damned pub.


"The world has the most curious way of causing the most unexpected of things to happen to me."
Try to be nonchalant and charming about it

Roll #1 4 = 4


"Why not? We're wasting time, hurry up and lets get this over with"


"Do ya see the donkey?"
Look around for the informer.

Roll #0 4 = 4


The two of you join the rest of the party in the pub

You spit some salty water in one of her eyes as you speak

She yelps and rubs it out.

"Perhaps… perhaps you should go and join the group. They just lost a member after all. And this is a matter that affects all of us."

He's sitting in the corner still, eyeing you all

"Mmmmmm? Yes my dear?"


jump and sit on the table
"We require your services."

Roll #0 8 = 8


[TL]Okay then[TL]


"Perchance. Who knows, this may well be the start of a grand adventure."
Lets go to that bar then.
I mean I saw the others go, what are the odds of me getting into trouble?
Or the ship sinking behind me?

Roll #0 7 = 7


Yeah, watch the donkey, but don't speak yet.


Sit near him.
give her a playful jab with an helbow
[TL]"Don't be mad for so little!"[/TL]

Roll #0 7 = 7


He doesn't even flinch

"Yes, your companion here informed me earlier. I've heard of your mission. One of the many expeditions that has been sent out lately. Curious to see if you will be joining in on the failing of your counterparts."

He nods as he sees Shaky approach as well.

Looks like the ship is enchanted with a bad-luck-prevention-spell. No need to worry.

The party is talking to a donkey it seems. You notice several of his body parts are clipping through the furniture. How odd.


"Well, what the heck d'ya want us doin' for the info?"


slink into his lap
"Maybe so, maybe not. But you have something we want, just as We have something you want. A simple trade is all I ask"

Roll #0 8 = 8


I smirk.
Looks like the strange pegasus knows something.
Keep silent still.


Lets shake hooves with one of them.
It is always wise for one to make friends with the departed, lest they become angry at one's trespassing.
Once I have greeted the body parts, I shall listen to what business the party has with their associate.

Roll #0 4 = 4


Wave my hoof dismissively at her.
Stay listening.


I should probably just go with the party… I hope she'll stop being so mad.
I walk over to the rest of the party.


"Oh my, aren't you a clever one! As a matter of fact, yes! There is something I need to get done. Very simple and very fitting for ponies that are just passing through such as yourselves."

Your body passes through his body as the donkey gets up.

"You see, as a broker that passes on information to clients, I have agents that serve me. Agents that gather information for me, which I barter away to customers in return. They get their share of this money, I get mi-"

He interrupts himself as he sees Helping Hooves walk into the bar and urges her to come over.

"Come on, chop chop! I don't have all day!"

Choose your victim.

Looks like they're talking to a donkey


"Sorry, sorry!"
I hurry over to him.
"Are you the donkey we're supposed to talk to?"


"Good to see you, I trust everything is well with the captain?"


I shrug.
"What d'ya want done?"


The donkey must be a ghost! How else could that happen?
I shall attempt to appease his spirit!

Roll #0 3 = 3


"Yes, yes, just tell us what we need to do and we'll be on our merry way."


"Huh?… Oh! Yes, the captain is fine. very fine indeed… I think she might be a bit mad now though."
Rolling not to blush.

Roll #0 5 = 5


He clops his hooves together in joy and laughs

"Yes! Aren't you the brightest of the bunch!"

He settles down again, looking at the party

"Anyhow, where was I? Ah yes, now I remember! To my greatest regret one of my agents has been very, very naughty. She has been bartering information behind my back and kept all the money to herself! She's giving my business a very bad name indeed."

You move your hoof through him a few times in amazement.

A faint hue of pink appears on your cheeks


"Yesyes yes, we'll get it done. now"
brush up against the cleric
"You look like you need some tending to"

Roll #0 7 = 7


"And what d'ya want done wiv it?"


"So do you suggest we revoke her rights to information brokering or completely remove her from the business?"


Yawn. This looks like politic or other useless stuffs.
Instead, have a quick gaze around, are there ponies of knoledge here?

Roll #0 6 = 6


"Her name, where can I find her, do you want her dead/alive? and most importantly what is she into?"

Roll #0 8 = 8


"Are you even realizing you are talking to an incorporeal entity? What if it curses us! With spooky ghost magic!?"
Rolling to make sense

Roll #0 7 = 7

Roll #1 10 = 10


"So what do you suggest we do?"
I tilt my head at him.
"O- Oh no, that's very alright… I'm fine! Honest!"


>Clearing the dice field


"Yes. Thank you for pointing that out"
"Aww, what a shame. Sometimes, I was I was a bit more.."
brush my tail in her face
"Convincing.. Oh well"

Roll #0 7 = 7


"Never seen illusions before?"


"I want you to go over and hoof her her resignation papers."

He motions at a few sheets of paper on the table.

"And to teach her a lesson. I don't care how. She's not my agent anymore after all."

"As I said, I do not care. Just show her that I do not tolerate ponies that do not adhere to the rules of the game."

Mostly drunkards, they probably know a thing or two about alcohol.

The donkey chuckles

"This is merely illusion magic, lad. A guarantee to my personal safety as it were."


"oi, look at dis"
Mirror Image

Roll #0 3 = 3


"but who is she?"


"That would be unfortunate…"

Take the papers.
"Where is she, who is she? That's all we need now."


"I- I have someone! You're very attractive, b- but I'm going to have to politely decline!"
"Just have her resign? That's not too bad… where is she?"


This ghost is clearly trying to trick me isn't it?
I bet it's the one that made me have luck like this in the first place.
Better play along for now. But I'm not touching no cursed ghost paper. It might explode or something.
"Ok mr. not at all a ghost ghost. I'm up for non-ghost related business."
Surely that was charmingly innocent and not racist at all

Roll #1 7 = 7


"You have someone? tsktsktsk… such demanding of another.. If i were you, i'd like to be with someone instead."


I just stay silent.
[TL]I hate this sorta work.[TL]

Roll #0 5 = 5


Aside from a slight farting sound being emitted from your horn, nothing happens.

"Her name and address are on the papers, but alright. She's called Light Heart. She's a pegasus pony."

Of course not, you just appear very goofy right now to the party.


[TL]"We do not have to. I won't hurt somepony just for infos!"[/TL]


grab the papers from shaky and read the info on Light Heart


"I meant I'm in a relationship! Now please stop making me so uncomfortable…"
I move away from her.
I join him in reading the papers.

Roll #0 10 = 10


Well maybe just one peek won't cause any harm…
"So… anything worthy of note?"

Roll #1 1 = 1


"Aww, where's the fun in that?"


Lives at Trotsford street, number 7
She's a pegasus, aged 26
Equestrian immigrant
Parents unknown
Her favorite color is yellow
She likes long walks on beaches
And strawberries and peaches

Before they can read any further you grab the papers and rip them to shreds.

You're getting good at this.

Unfortunately, the donkey has already vanished. Looks like you fucked that one up.


I can totally come up with a rational excuse for this
Just watch
"See? Cursed ghost paper!"

Roll #1 8 = 8


"Good. fucking. job."
head over to Trostford St7 and try to locate this gal

Roll #0 4 = 4


Go to said destination.


"Betterm now we have to hurt nopony!"
"You are right! Hang on!"
Check for spirits in the vicinity. Can't never be too sure with cursed ghost paper.

Roll #0 10 = 10


Your attempts at bluffing are admirable, but not enough to deny something everyone clearly saw you doing just a moment ago.

Get Bluff if you want to do this

He was clearly full of shit. Never before have you witnessed a pony so full of shit as this one. You'll have a much harder time believing anything he says in the future.


"Was that really necessary?…"
Try to find her house.

Roll #0 2 = 2


Give him an hard look.
"You just stink the part."


I'm not a sodding bard, omniscient ghost voice!
Was it?
Surely ill fate would have befallen us had I not saved us all!

Roll #1 9 = 9


Let's not make this more complicated by getting yourselves lost.

After a bit of confusion and asking around, you arrive at your destination. A very nice looking mansion, perched on top of a hill can be found there. The mansion is surrounded by a wall and a large exotic looking garden. The bronze gate in the wall is unlocked, much to your surprise.

Which is why you can't do stuff like that, otherwise it would render Bluff as a skill useless

You realize that you are just being silly right now. There is no such thing as ghosts! Right?


"I wish we had given that donkey the dosh…"


prepare a knife throwing trap and walk through

Roll #0 8 = 8


But what if YOU ARE A GHOST!?

Roll #1 7 = 7


"This is really hers?… It looks amazing! Really expensive."
I open the gate.

Roll #0 7 = 7


Casually fly inside.
"I hope she won't try to fight or otherwise try to get herself killed…"


Well, time to get this over with!

Roll #0 4 = 4


Once I am done with the ghost, lets go catch up with the others.
That address is easy to remember right?

Roll #1 8 = 8


Trap set.

You got me there.
Question is, is this still reality?
Or a dream?
Or a fantasy?
Maybe you died already?
Maybe this is purgatory?

You walk in on her domain. Not a living soul to be seen in the garden at the least.

No answer. Everything is dead silent.

Of course it is. You memorized it all before you tore those papers to shreds.


"I'm findin' a bottle to drown myself in."
Good night


Advance a bit more cautiously.
"Be careful. I don't like this. Someone go in front in case there are traps."


search out the pony, lockpick through the doors if need be

Roll #0 6 = 6


"Wait don't leave me here!"
Can I see inside the house.

Roll #0 6 = 6


Pure genius is what I am.
Rolling to keep my mental stability intact after being told by a ghost I am stuck in purgatory and may not really be a genius at all
Once that is over with, lets see where the others got to by now

Roll #1 7 = 7


"Awfully quiet here…. is she even home?"
Advance forward, but remain cautious.

Roll #0 10 = 10


Doesn't look dangerous at all. The flowers are pretty and smell good, there's birds singing, you can hear some fish splashing in a nearby pond. It's all very peaceful.

Whoa nelly, that's one fancy magical lock she has on the front door.

DC8 to pick it open

All the curtains appear to be closed.

That ghost was probably full of shit. The fact that you figured this out is just another confirmation that you're a genius.

The party has arrived at the domain and is walking around in the garden


That's not too bad then.
I walk over to the front door and knock on it.

Roll #0 2 = 2


Pfft, screw doors.
Fly up to an upper floor window and open it.


Well now, it seems one of my comrades is struggling with a lock.
Perhaps I can be of assistance.
"S'cuse me, might you need a speedier method of opening that lock?"


No response. That's a big damn sturdy door too.

They're all closed from the inside and covered by curtains. For a mare that keeps her front gate open she sure cares a lot about keeping her house locked up.


Go over to the door.
"What, you gonna curse da' lock or somethin?"
"If ya let me have mah way, Ah'll blast da door clean!"


Try to force one of them open with a knife.

Roll #1 8 = 8


I know!
Peek through the keyhole. That's how it works in the books!

Roll #0 7 = 7


"Well if you insist on such… unsubtle methods, perhaps I could be of actual, tangible aid. After all, aside from being a genius and a bad luck magnet, I am also a well versed dragon breath imitator."


You see the insides of a fancy looking hallway, you notice some light coming out of a door on the side.

After a bit of wiggling, you manage to open the lock with your 'lockpick'.


I'm not impressed.
"Oh please, show me then."


"I'll try to open it from the inside. You wait here. Or , you know, do something useful!"

Head inside the window and look around.
Keep my daggers ready.


I try to wink inside.

Roll #0 5 = 5


"Well if you so insist"
Lets try blasting something less than vital apart with a bit of Unyielding Force.

Roll #1 9 = 9


You open up and sneak into the room behind the window. Looks like a bathroom. It's very messy in here.

You manage to wink yourself through the keyhole…

Only for Running Luck to blast the door open with a impressive feat of destructive magic.

Helping Hooves, roll to not get hit by debris


I try to dodge!

Roll #0 6 = 6


Messy as in unkept or messy as in something else?

Take a peek out of the bathroom door.

Roll #1 7 = 7


Slow clap.
"Bad luck magnet I can believe. You almost kill'her!"


"Oh pish, she's fine. Much unlike the door. Now then, ladies first?"


You only barely manage to jump out of the way as the door gets blown open.

You hear a loud scream coming from the same sideroom where you saw light coming out of the doorhole

Just unkept and disorderly.

Nopony is in the hallway. Completely empty save for some furniture.

You hear a blast and a scream coming from downstairs. Looks like your friends were impatient


"Ya bet!"
Walk in and scan for dangers!

Roll #0 3 = 3


"I- That could've hit me! You should really be more careful!"
Walk over to the sideroom and gently open the door.
"Um… anyone in here? W- We're not here to hurt you!"


Oh Hai Me, what are you doing in the hallway

"Damn it…"

Check the rooms that open from the hallway.

Roll #1 7 = 7


Follow them in.
Surely I did not cause any dangerous structural damage with that spell that might put me at risk.
"So, any clues?"

Roll #1 2 = 2


You can't help but notice the nurse has a very juicy butt.

The moment you open door a shot rings out as a bullet fired from inside the room plants itself in the thick wood. A stallion voice speaks up

"Y'all be careful now! W-we're armed ya hear!"

A lavatory
A Bedroom
Another bedroom
A dressing room

Looks like you're the only pony on this floor

You step on a very sharp piece of jagged wood coming from that destroyed door


I think I should not tempt face

Roll #1 4 = 4


I back away from the door!
"We're not here to hurt you! We just want to talk! Please don't shoot again!"

Roll #0 10 = 10


I'm scared!
Am I scared?

Roll #0 1 = 1


Carefully check the stairs and what's downstairs.


You scream like a little filly and fall over in pain

Shit zigga that was some crazy ass shit!

What's that running down your legs? IS THAT BLOOD!?

Oh wait no, that's pee. Looks like you had a little accident there.

"If y'all want ta talk y'all should have just rung a bell!"

You hear some hushed voices from inside the room. After a few moments you hear hoofsteps as somepony walks up to the closed door. This time a female voice speaks up from right behind it, remarkably calm sounding.

"Who are you?"

You see all of the above happening in the hallway downstairs


Hold up the hoof with the wood in it.
Assistance will surely arrive

Roll #1 5 = 5


I facehoof.
"I can't believe these ponies…"

Is there a way around that I see so I can avoid going from front and circle back?

Roll #1 5 = 5


Fuck! Shut up that loud thing! Magic bolt it!

Roll #0 3 = 3


"I knocked but no one answered…"
I shake my head and try to peek inside.
"Um… we're here looking for a… whatwashernameagai- Light Heart! That's it, we're looking for a pegasus named Light Heart. Is she here?"
"Oof, that's an awfully bad splinter you have there… let me try to take it out!"
I try to Heal him.

Roll #0 6 = 6


You begin wildly shooting magic bolts around the hallway. Hitting and destroying much of the expensive looking furniture.

The nurse has this shit under control. She removes the large splinter from your hoof and heals the wound shut.

Now stop crying you big baby.

You what?

Well no, evidently there isn't.

The mare pushes the door to a close as soon as she hears Southern Seas unleashing a barrage of magic bolts.

"I'm inclined to stay inside, to be fair."

You hear some noises and whispering coming from the room again.


Stop this crap and get an hold of myself!

Roll #0 5 = 5


"My deepest appreciations. I only wish I would have had such ready assistance to aid me more often in life"
Lets get up and go see what all this shooting and screaming is about


I smack my face and sigh, then try to approach Southern Seas.
"Shh… it's okay! Nothing's going to hurt you!"

Roll #0 8 = 8


Show myself on the stairs.
"No, please, would you be as kind as to come outside? We want to have a chat."

Roll #1 3 + 2 = 5


"Wat.. What was that?"
Am I still shaking?

Roll #1 4 = 4


brb 10 minutes

Welp, you restrained yourself, but not before ruining the entire hallway and everything in it.

Looks like that tribal pony lost her shit for a while there.

"I dunno, kinda like it in here. Less screaming and destroying and all."

You are shivering like a mad pony


Keep my voice down
"Alternatively, we can always remove their ability to remain inside."


"That was…. never mind, they're just not going to do it again. You're safe now."

Roll #0 1 = 1


"Don't mind the mare, she's just a bit jumpy and simple, but means no harm. We really need to talk."


"She's just a bit jump and scared, that's all… we really need to talk to you though!"

Roll #0 6 = 6


get an hold of myself '1d10'
Shout them
"Ah'm sorry fer dat!"

Roll #1 3 = 3


You are on the verge of fainting. Your heart is still racing like hell though.

Some more noises can be heard from inside the room. The door gets opened quickly, a set of hooves pushing out a unicorn mare into the hallway and quickly closing and locking the door again.

The mare smiles at your sheepishly
"Um… h-hi?"


"Hi! Are you Light Heart?"

Roll #0 1 = 1


"Light Heart, is it?"

Does she look like a pegasus mare in her twenties?


Somehow, chill.
Try Natural Remedy or something!

Roll #0 2 = 2


scan the place for anything suspicious

Roll #0 5 = 5


"Y-yeah! That's me alright! Can I go now?"

She backs up a little, hitting the door with her rump

>pushing out a unicorn mare into the hallway and quickly closing and locking the door again.
The horn is kind of a giveaway

You shove some of that poisonous plant from earlier down your throat, that'll fix it for sure!

Oh wait… shit!

Nothing to bee seen, chief



Roll #0 7 = 7


prepare a knife throwing trap
"Wait a minute dear"

Roll #0 9 = 9


I roll my eyes.
"We want the real one. The pegasus. Come out and we can settle this without more trouble that needed."
AWIYE again.

Roll #1 4 + 2 = 6


"Wait… You're not her! Send out the real one!"

Roll #0 7 = 7


"What if we simply opened the door?"



You spit out the poisonous plant onto the ground. Looks like it's sizzling a bit.

You already had one prepped.


The mare teleports herself away in the blink of an eye. Once again, some noises and whispering can be heard from behind the door until finally the door opens up again. An annoyed looking pegasus mare walks out this time, her wings spread out.

"Alright, alright. Here I am. The lady herself. Light Heart."


"You're… employer told us to tell you you're, um, terminated… I- I mean you're being let go! We're not here to kill you or anything!"

Roll #0 2 = 2


"Good tidings to you. A ghost told us to give you a pike of explosive cursed paper"
That's how it went right?

Roll #1 7 = 7


Just stand beside the others and try not to look too ragged.

Roll #0 8 = 8


that's for both wings then
and then use those knives to cheapshot her!

prepare a second trap afterwards

Roll #0 7 = 7


"Good. The donkey no longer needs you."


You can only set one trap at a time

Also what attack are you using? If Cheapshot you don't need to roll


"Well that went well. Class act all round. Should we burn the house while we're at it?"


"Wait what are you-"


ok then. but i'm
throwing knives at her, she's far enough that whichever sticks will keep her down for a turn or two


"You have your filth-ridden way of doing things, and I have mine. It would have been simple enough to slit her throat and be done with it, but none of you really take orders all that well now do you?"


Suuuuure! Sure it did!

"What? What're you on about?"

"Whoa what? Why the he-"

You hit the mare in the chest with a couple of knives before she can say anything more.


She gasps a few times, before collapsing on the floor, a pool of blood forming around her. The unicorn mare screams and teleports herself out of the house. The earth pony buck instead gasps and runs over to her body.



"You maniac! We were never told to hurt her!"
Rush towards Light Heart, natural remedy on her!

Roll #0 3 = 3


Well, that's that then.
At least I didn't have to do it.
"Step aside from her, sonny boy, before you too get hurt."

Roll #1 10 + 2 = 12


"Mm. Yes. Charming. Now who has the cursed ghost paper so we can pass it along and be done here?"
"Oh not to worry. Those are hardly lethal wounds. See? 'tis but-"
"…I believe I may have spoken too soon"
Can I find the papers we were supposed to give, or did I manage to destroy them already?

Roll #1 7 = 7


"We sort of were, if you were paying attention."


"Well now… where the the horned one run off to?"
"Given everyone's luck here she would've died before she hit the ground.. And I'm sure she got the message quite clearly"
walk over to her
"Didn't you?"


"NO! He said to stop her, not to kill her, you crazy bastards!"
Hold my tears.

Roll #0 7 = 7


Also, natural remedy her again.

Roll #0 5 = 5


"We won't kill her, calm down!"

"Will we?"


"Well I could try if you wanted me to?"


You push in the knives a little deeper, making the mare cry out in pain


He gets up and steps aside, grinding his teeth and muttering something under his breath repeatedly

You destroyed them earlier, as you might remember

She stares blankly in front of her, one of her legs spazzing out a little


"I'm not the one killing her"
"She got the message, I'm sure she won't be doing anything of the sort again…"


"Good, it'd be a shame for her to die over such petty things The lesson has been learned."

"See, it's not that hard, now stay there and we won't have a problem."


You never know with ghost paper.
It might have been haunting me.
"Of the 'hiding in a room and sending others to answer the door' sort, or?"



Rolling again if I have to, pull those things out, help her.
Nopony else will die on me today.

Roll #0 6 = 6


You pull out the knives and apply a potion that grows the wounds shut in an instant. She's still gasping for breath and convulsing slightly though.

His lower lip is trembling slightly as he sees the mare shudder, but he keeps his lips sealed

You try to give the mare a potion, but it leaks out of her mouth as she continues to shiver.


"Whichever helps you sleep at night. Besides, she'll live.

…Is this all?


"I think we should stay until she can speak. Just so we know she won't do such sillynes again."


"Stay with me, don't follow da light."
Try to keep her awake and conscious, may the Spirits help me.

Roll #0 9 = 9


Heal that poor mare!

Roll #0 8 + 2 = 10


"You tell me. Perhaps we could take some nice furniture along as payment or maybe take a shit in the yard while we're on a roll."
Here's hoping for my genius sarcasm to be biting and not simply foolish sounding

Roll #1 1 = 1


Roll my eyes and turn to the buck.
"Hey you. Make yourself useful and get some water. Now."


"So you can be useful outside ignoring the needs of the mission and attending to the captain"
"Fine by me"
"I'm above going in public. But since you're strong enough why don't you get a fainting couch from another room for our host?"
sound a bit more commanding

Roll #0 9 = 9


Her eyes flutter a little, her breathing is still very ragged.

The stallion rockets away, heading upstairs at lightning speed

Doesn't seem like your magic is helping at all. The mare's condition is not improving whatsoever

Your voice squeaks a few times, that's kinda pathetic dude.


"Come on… stay with me! Don't. Die!"
Keep Healing!

Roll #0 2 + 2 = 4


Allright. Good…
"You with me? Follow?"
"Calm, we done everythin we can, up to her now."
"You two strong bucks, take her inside, on a bed or somethin!"


Curse these tight protective pads, always constricting at an inopportune time…
"As you wish"
Surely this will not end in tragedy
Like the bed being launched out of a window

Roll #1 6 = 6


Roll my eyes.
"Fine, but I hope she won't be problematic after this."


"Oh please. Why must you be so swift to assume the worst of someone we were sent to not assassinate by a ghost?"


"Quit it you! I checked with the Spirits already, that was no ghost!"


No response

You pick up the mare and put her on the very messy bed inside the room. Looks like fun was had last night in here.

The stallion rockets back into the room, leaping over at the mare and shoving several bright colored pills down her throat, after which he begins to massage her chest.

"Come on come on come on!"


"But are spirits not ghosts themselves? It is a conspiracy I tell you."


"And just what are you doing?"


"You did not just accuse the Spirits of lying!"
How offended am I?



Roll #1 6 = 6


Indeed, lets see how offensive that was

Roll #1 3 = 3


Do I recognize what kind?

Roll #0 4 = 4


I don't know, how offended are you with a roll like that?

VERY offended! What a dick!

He pays no heed to you and continues his thing. Occasionally putting one of his ears to her chest to listen.

You have no idea. Like at all. Could be anything.


"I asked something. You'd be wise to answer, unless you want to end like her."


I slowly approach the pair.
Does she look like she's getting better?
"What'd you just give her?…"

Roll #0 8 = 8


With a 9 in getting offended and a 0 in not offending?
I'd say I'm 19 shades of offended right now.

I'm so offended I could start a war.

Look at him in rage
"You. Don't. Speak. Again!"
Try to cool off and not blast his ass with a storm bolt.

Roll #0 8 = 8


"She was doing something before all this happened. Something Involving that other unicorn. Something possibly involving this handsome stallion here…"


"Look you ghost-worshiping cave horse I will speak my mind when I damn well feel like it!
Now are we quite done here?"
"As much as I would love to stand around listening to your detective work on bedroom activities, I do believe our actual mission here is complete."


He glances over at you momentarily

"She has a weak heart or something! I don't remember what it's called!"

"Just… pills she takes when she gets bad!"

At least her breathing is getting less shallow and more constant. And she lets out a groan or two, opening her eyes again.


Meh, 11, I ain't even mad.
Give him an indignated look and go back to the Pegasus.
"You allright, feathery thing?"


Turn to the mare after he finishes speaking.
"Oh, look who is awake, sleeping beauty. Can you talk?"


"There's a variety of things that could cause that… may I?"
A weak heart…
I can help with that! Right?…

Roll #0 10 + 2 = 12


"I've…I've felt better."

Her voice is very raspy and pretty quiet, but at least she can talk.

"Miss Light Heart! I thought I lost you!"

The mare grunts and shifts her body

"Can you get off of me? I'm dying here."

The stallion quickly jumps off of bed, eyeing the mare carefully still.

You use your telekinesis to massage her heart directly, allowing the blood to flow better. Her ears perk up and she looks confused.

"Wow… that's kinda freaky… I should tell Sparks to do that too sometime."



Once again, we find ourselves having a very special session of TEotS.

After being assaulted by Running Luck, the captain has angrily retreated back to her cabin, closing the door shut with a loud slam.


I knock on the door.
"Uh, captain?"


No answer comes, just silence


I enter.


No reaction comes as you enter the room. The captain is standing near the window, staring motionlessly outside. Looks like she got a fresh set of clothes on already. An empty bottle of whiskey lies on the ground near her.


I walk over to her, slowly.
"North? Are you… okay?"


brb 10 mins
She glances over her shoulder, her eyes hard and full of anger.

"I'm fine. What are you doing here?"

She swishes her tail a few times


I wince at her stare.
"I- You're upset. Is… is there something I could do to help?"


She returns her gaze to outside the window, opening it up and flinging the empty bottle outside.

"Go get me another bottle if you want to be helpful."


"Hey now… drinking in anger is never good… what's really wrong?"


"I already said there's nothing wrong. Now get me another damn bottle or just get the hell out of here."


I sigh and shake my head.
"Fine. Where do you keep your… bottles?"


"In the pale wooden cupboard with the chandelier on top of it."

She doesn't even bother turning around to look at you.


I go fetch her bottle of booze and float it over to her, but otherwise stay silent.


Looks like that's the last bottle in here

She grabs the bottle with her own magic quite forcibly and downs a significant portion of it in a single swig.

Roll #0 5 = 5


boring roll pls

Roll #0 6 = 6


She stumbles, but quickly regains her hoofing, grumbling all the while.

"To hell with this all…"


I sigh and try to help her keep her balance.
"So you're even more drunk now. Please tell me what's wrong?"

Roll #0 4 = 4


She snaps at you and shoves the bottle in your mouth quite forcibly

"Would you just shut the hell up for one minute?"


Try not to drink too much!
I pull away, panting but otherwise say nothing.

Roll #0 2 = 2


You drink up a pretty large potion of the bottle, strong stuff.

"See? That's not so damn hard is it?"

She moves the bottle back to her and takes another swig from it


I stumble as I try to not let the alcohol hit me too hard, but still keep quiet.

Roll #0 5 = 5


It kind of burns in the back of your throat, but aside from that the effects are moderate. The two of you stay awkwardly silent for a few minutes until North Light finally speaks up, still not bothering to look at you.

"So why'd you become a nurse? Why not a doctor or somethin'?"


"I don't really know… I guess it just appealed to me more or something. I don't think I could make it as a doctor anyways… What about you? Why'd you become a captain?"


She shrugs

"I've always had a thing for adventure and seeing new places, maybe I got that from my parents or somethin', I dunno."

She takes another swig, finishing up the bottle and looking at it sadly, then tossing it outside the window

"Started serving on ships when I was 15, must've done somethin' right at least seeing how far I got since. And now look at me, part of this cursed expedition to figure out this disaster crap…"


"It… It hasn't been entirely cursed! We're still alive and the ship's still sailing… even if we've lost someone and, um… got covered in bodily fluids."
I scoot a bit closer to her.
"I mean, it's only up from here, right?"


"Yeah right, things are just going to get worse soon, I reckon."

She sighs and turns around to face you, her eyes softer and more watery than before. She looks you over for a moment before walking past you, heading to her bed.

"I'm going to sleep, it's late."


"Do you want me to join you? I can't just leave you alone after all that happened today…"
I stand up and walk towards her.
"I- I mean, not even in the… intimate sense, but just company. The presence of another."



Roll #0 10 = 10


She sighs and rubs her head

"Why not? Just don't keep me awake, I need to sleep this off."

She takes off her uniform and crawls in bed, burying her face in a pillow while quietly magicking over an empty bucket, setting it down next to the bed.


"I didn't even plan on it… and I'm sure there's something I can do to help you."
Try to do something magic so she won't have a hangover in the morning? Cure?

Roll #0 9 = 9


That cleared up her mind a lot, that's for sure. She lifts up her head and blinks a few times in confusion, before turning to look at you.

"What… What did you just do?"


"It's a… night before cure? Something like that. It gets rid of most of the alcohol from your system, so you don't get hung over… I figured you might want it."
I scoot a bit away from her, wincing slightly as I expect another outburst.


She scrunches her nose slightly

"What a waste of alcohol…"

She massages her head with telekinesis for a while, until sighing and jumping out of bed. She approaches you, looking at the ground embarrassedly

"Still… thanks. I'm sorry for what happened earlier. I've got a short fuse when drinking…"


"It's alright… you've had a tough day. I forgive you. Do you still need the company for tonight?"


She shakes her head.

"Now that my head is cleared up I don't think I'll be sleeping just yet. I need to write some logs and do some course plotting."

She kisses you on the cheek

"I'll make up for it though, I promise."


I give her a kiss on the cheek in return and a smile.
"I don't think I'd be against that. I suppose I'll return to my own quarters then. Do you want me to come back when you're done?"


"Mmmm… sure. Just make sure nopony sees you."

She starts unfurling some scrolls and putting them on her desk.

"By the way… has anypony noticed anything about the two of us?"


"As far as I know, no. Scaeva was giving me trouble over staying behind to make sure you're alright, but nobody else said anything."


She frowns

"Ah right… Scaeva. She's been giving me quite a bit of trouble already. Keep a close eye on her will you?"

She nuzzles your cheek a little

"And don't worry, once this whole thing is over we wont have to hide anything from anypony anymore."


I return her nuzzle.
"I'd like that… so I suppose this is farewell for now?"
I giggle.
"For the next few hours, at least."


"Yeah, come back in an hour or two. I'll be waiting for you~"

She winks at you and turns back to her charts, levitating several tools and beginning to work on plotting some courses.


I lean in and give her one more kiss, then pull away, grinning.
"I can't wait either~"
I leave.





I move below deck.
Anyone here?

Roll #0 1 = 1


Yes, you are in the crew's quarters. There's ponies sleeping in the hammocks, ponies playing cards, ponies that are busy reading or writing letters, and so on.

A stallion approaches you as he sees you looking around.

"Evenin' nurse, somethin' ahoof?"


Meanwhile, Shaky is awake too and free to move about the ship as he pleases


"N- Nothing. Just taking a little walk around the ship before I turn in for the night! Walking keeps the body healthy after all!"
Totally telling the truth.

Roll #0 9 = 9


Go to the deck of the ship.
Any mares that look good around there?


Are there?

Roll #0 1 = 1


Nope, they're all handsome dudes

You'll have to either go belowdecks or search a different part of the deck, maybe at the helm or in the crow's nest.

He nods

"Aye, life on a ship can really mess with yer balance. Have a pleasant evenin' miss."


Fuck, first response was for >>212217


"You too!"
Haha! Free reign now!
I walk over to where the captain's quarters is. Anybody around here?

Roll #0 6 = 6


Fly up to the crow's nest then I guess.
Maybe I'll have more luck there.

Roll #1 2 = 2


There's some light coming from under the door of Wysteria's room, looks like she's still awake. Aside from that, nopony is around.

Good GOD that watchmare is hideous!

She grabs you midflight with her telekinesis and pulls you closer, breathing heavily

"Haha! Whaddidicatch? What's yer name lil' birdy?"


I walk inside the captain's quarters and close the door behind me.
Any sign of North?

Roll #0 7 = 7


"Gah! My name is Ser Gotta Go!"

Escape Artist!
Get the hell out of there!
Fly down to the helm of the deck!


Yup, seems she fell asleep while working though. She's resting her head on one of the charts spread out on the desk. Sounds like she's snoring slightly, and drooling a little as well.

"Ya know were ta find me, lil' birdy!"

You escapes from the clutches of purgatory and fly down to the helm. A mare is handling the it while staring intently at a large hourglass standing on the ground nearby.


Does she look good?

Roll #1 3 = 3



Roll #1 3 = 3



'r2 2d10'

Roll #1 1 = 1 / Roll #2 7, 6 = 13


I shake my head and chuckle, then walk over to her and give her a kiss on the cheek.
"Hey there…"


Above average at least


Well, whatever, no time to be picky.

"Hey there, sweetheart."


She startles slightly and sits back upright, looking at you confusedly


She rubs her eyes and yawns

"Guess those drinks did have an effect on my after all. Did two hours pass already?"

She takes her eyes off of the hourglass and shifts her attention to you.

"What? Why are you bothering me?"


I nod.
"Get your work done?"


"Why, I just guessed you'd want some company, with being all alone here with nothing but the ship to entertain you."


She gets up and stretches out a few times, cracking some of her joints

"Mmhmm… I'll just need to doublecheck some other ti- ACK!"

The mare drops to the ground midstretch on her belly, clutching her leg

She glowers

"You think I'm stupid?"

She boops you on the nose accusingly

"You think you have me aaaaall figured out don't you? Well you're wrong! and you have no damn proof!"


I immediately dive down next to her.
"Are you okay? What happened?!"
Check her over! What happened!?

Roll #0 3 = 3


I raise an eyebrow, but smile.
"Haven't I? How can you be so sure? Why would I confront you without any proof? It's easier if you just come clean, sweetheart!"

Roll #1 10 + 2 = 12


She grits her teeth quietly, doing her best not to cry out. Looks like she managed to hurt herself somehow

"Shit! Alright alright… okay… I admit! I've been stealing from the medical stock! I sometimes take naps during my shifts! I shot the captain on purpose because she's a bitch! And I really really like bellyrubs!"

She's breathing heavily now, clearly distressed


Try to ease her pain… Heal this poor mare!
"Hey hey hey… shh… it's okay…"
Pull her into a hug and try to avoid her injury.

Roll #0 3 + 2 = 5


I keep smirking slyly.
"Ain't this just grand! Don't worry, your secret is safe with me… for now… and I won't rat out on you either…"
Pat her on the head.
"I could rub your belly, even… You know how they say, 'I rub your belly, you rub mine."

Let out a chuckle.


She whimpers slightly, you feel her muscles are all tensed up right now.

"D-damn… i-it…"

"Why did I tell you all this? Shit! What in the name of Luna's soft buttocks is goin' on here!?"

She quickly picks up the hourglass and flings it at you.

Roll to dodge


Duck under it!

"Whoa there, missy! No need to be upset!"

Roll #1 4 = 4


"What's wrong? What hurts?"
Continue trying to heal her!

Roll #0 3 + 2 = 5


It hits you in the side, that'll probably leave a mark.

The mare is giving you the hard stare, reeling heavily


Roll #1 6 = 6


She shakes her head a few times.

You notice there's a scar on the leg she's clutching. Not very big or noticable, but it's still there.


"I can't help you until you tell me what's wrong, dear. So please, tell me what's wrong!"
Try to… heal whatever pain the scar may be causing.

Roll #0 3 + 2 = 5


are you kidding me

Roll #0 5 + 2 = 7


I rub my side.
"Ow… That wasn't so nice, dear…"


"It's j-just… that damn old hurting w-wound!"

"You mindcontrolled me! You must have! Why else would I have told you all that!?"

Her eyes widen momentarily

"Are… are you an alien?"


"Was… was this ever healed properly?"
Continue trying to relieve her pain and examine her scar more closely. Was it ever properly tended to?

Roll #0 2 + 2 = 4


"You told that to me because you trust me. And no, I am just a pegasus. Smashingly handsome, yes, but just a pony. Now calm down, and I will even let your little outburst slide, dear."



She quickly retracts her leg away from you

"I-it's from last year, bullet r-ripped right through some tissue and wasn't repairable. A-almost had to remove my d-damn leg too because of it."

"Alright alright… if you're not an alien… then riddle me this… uh…"

She moves both her hooves behind her back

"How many hooves am I holding up?"


I raise an eyebrow.
"The better question is, how do you not fall on your face with both hooves behind your back?"


"I- I'm so sorry! I'll stop poking at it now…"
Can I try and properly relieve her pain, now that I'm focused on just that?
I gotta do it… for her!

Roll #0 10 + 2 = 12


She's a pegasus

"Don't you dodge the question, alien scum!"

And so you do.

By the power of love you light up your horn and focus your mending magic on the mare's hurt leg. She grunts as… something is happening to the insides of her leg. Looks like things are shifting around and changing place.

Even as you finish the spell her entire leg remains enveloped in a golden hue, the scar having disappeared completely. North Star is gaping with her mouth and eyes wide open at the display, unable to believe what you just managed to pull off.




"I… Wow, that's new. Are you feeling any better?"


"Damn. Uh… haha! Wrong! Three was the correct answer!"

She takes out a flintlock pistol from her belt and points it at you.

"Any last words, alien scum!?"

She wobbles her leg around a bit, the golden hue still slightly present.

"I… yes. That… I think you just fixed it!"

She stands up and puts some weight on the leg, smiling all the while

"I really think you fixed it! That's amazing!"


"I did? Really?"
I grin as I see and hear her get excited and happy.
"Do you feel any pain at all?"


"Put the weapon down. I was right, and you know it. I'm no more alien than you are."

Roll #1 1 + 2 = 3


She jumps up and down a few times

"No! Nothing! By the Gods that's amazing!"

She jumptackles you to the ground into a warm hug

"Thank you! Thank you thank you thank you thank you!"

"Alien scum! Die! Die! Die!"

She shoots at you.

Beat my roll to not get hit


Roll #1 8 = 8


Dodge it!

Roll #1 3 = 3


"You're welcome! You're very much welcome!"
I eagerly return the hug!
"You deserve it, after all~"


You get hit right in the leg and fall to the ground

She draws a rapier and charges at you.

The rest of the nightwatch will arrive to see what the heck is going on next turn.

"You're a damn miracle worke-"

A shot can be heard coming from the deck. The captain perks up her ears and quickly breaks loose from the hug

"What the heck was that? A gunshot?"


Cheapshot her as she gets closer!
Hit her on the head with the hourglass!
If this doesn't count as initiative then here's a roll

Roll #1 5 = 5


"It sounded like one…"
I stand up.
"Sounded like it came from on the ship too! We gotta go see what it is!"
I try to figure out where it came form.

Roll #0 4 = 4


As she lands right next to you, you manage forcibly beat her on the head with the heavy hourglass.

She screams in pain and falls to the ground helplessly.

Five stallions run in on the scene


She quickly puts on her uniform and grabs her sword.

"Let's go. This means trouble."

She leaves the room and starts heading up to the deck


"That crazy mare shot me!"


"What!? Why were you fighting!?"

The mare struggles to get up from the ground and points at you, eyes wild.

"He's crazy! He mindcontrolled me! I betcha he's a changeling or something!"

"What are you talking about you crazy broad!? Are you drunk!?"


Surely nothing bad will happen to those actually playing

Roll #1 3 = 3


I rush outside and shout to whoever's closest,
"What's going on here?! Why were there gunshots?"


"She is the one who is crazy! She called me an alien then shot me!"

How bad is that shot wound?

Roll #1 4 = 4


A stallion salutes the captain as she emerges from behind you and points over to where the helm is on the bridge.

"Might wanna go see fer yerself cap'n."

She frowns and goes up to the bridge

It's bleeding pretty badly, not to mention that it hurts as fuck.

The mare points a hoof at you accusingly

"You did something to me! You depraved son of a bi-"


The captain storms onto the bridge, prompting the stallions to quickly salute

"What is the meaning of this disorder!?"
"We had a fight on our hands cap'n. Peppermint shot one of the passengers."
The stallion motions to the two of you.

"Tell me what happened you two, I want the truth NOW! Miss Helping Hooves, tend to mister Shaky's wound if you please."


"Yes Ma'am!"
I try to tend to Shaky's wounds.

Roll #0 5 + 2 = 7


I snarl.
"The crazy bitch shot me after claiming I was an alien! Right after she confessed that she is a thief of medical supplies, she slacks off during shifts AND she shot you on purpose, or so she said! She is clearly out of her right mind!"


"Ouch…thank you, dear."



Roll #1 9 = 9


You remove the bullet and heal the wound shut very swiftly, that might leave a small mark though.


The mare picks up her sword and lunges at you and Helping Hooves. Right as she is about to hit however, a loud bang can be heard. Blood and chunks of brain splatter all over you as the mare's head explodes, her body landing on top of you both, carried by momentum.

The captain holsters her freshly fired flintlock and uses her telekinesis to pull the dead mare off of the both of you.

"Nopony kills anypony on this ship without my authority…"

The stallion crewmembers are staring at the captain in shock, not daring to move a muscle


Stand up and try to get rid of the body parts covering me.
"Slag had it coming…still."

Give a small bow to the Captain.
"Thank you, sweetheart. You really should pay more attention to your crew. She was clearly a nutjob, that was clear from talking to her for five minutes. How did it elude you?"

Roll #1 5 = 5


Rolling not to freak out that I'm covered in blood and brain matter.

Roll #0 5 = 5


rng pls
five is not an emotion

Roll #0 10 = 10


She gives you a hard stare
"You call me sweetheart one more time and I will hurl you overboard, understand? Now get out of my sight."

She turns to the five stallions.

"Clean this damn mess up, on the double!"

They shoot in action, carrying the body out of there and cleaning up the blood and chunks of meat.

She turns to you, a pang of sadness clearly visible in her eyes.

"Nurse Helping Hooves, you are dismissed. Go get yourself cleaned up and catch some sleep."

The captain turns around and takes her leave, turning to one of the crew one last time.

"I will be in my cabin writing reports, I do NOT wish to be disturbed, understood?"
"Y-yes madam!"
"Good, now get a damn move on."


"Y- Yes ma'am."
I head to wherever I can wash all this… stuff, off, and try to scrub it all out.

Roll #0 2 = 2


"Oh, well I am terribly sorry for uncovering a thief and possibly dangerous maniac, honey."


She's already gone belowdecks.

One of the crew sees you wandering around aimlessly and leads you to one of the rooms near the captains quarters where you can wash up.

"Yer not hurt are ya?"


"…fuck you too, then."

This was enough bad luck for a day.
Find a place where I can wash myself.
I DO need to look fabolous at all times.

Roll #1 3 = 3


"Huh? No… th- this is someone else's um, entrails… and I'd really quite like to wash it off, so thank you…"
I step into the room and try to wash it off now.

Roll #0 9 = 9


The same pony leads you to the room the nurse is in already

You clean yourself completely, not a single splatter of blood left!


Try to clean myself then.

"Some day, huh?"

Roll #1 10 = 10


I let out a sigh of relief at finally being clean, then turn to look at Shaky,
"Oh hey Shaky. Do you need to use the… shower thing now?"


Looking slick as fuck. You are probably the swaggest looking motherfucker aboard now.


"Oh wow… you clean up well. I think I'm going to go for a small walk above deck now though, so… see you tomorrow."
I leave and head up. Am I at all tired after… that?

Roll #0 7 = 7


Only slightly so. Luckily, or unluckily, you're pretty used to the sight of blood and gore due to your profession, so you aren't all that fazed by what you saw.


"Bye, I guess?"

"Oh Shaky, looking good, looking reaaaaaaaaal good."


I sigh and stare out into the ocean.
And it was going so well until that gunshot…
I was really hoping to spend more time with her.

Roll #0 5 = 5


The sea really is tranquil at night, t'is a shame the beautiful nightsky and moon are covered by a layer of thick clouds. Aside from that, the sea is decently calm right now.

But what a shame indeed, for such a promising night to be ruined by that. The night is still very young though.


I guess I can't let such handsomeness go to waste…
Maybe one last look around for any willing looking mares with good assets?

Roll #1 9 = 9


Now that you think about it, that mare that led you and Helping Hooves to the washing cabin was pretty damn pretty. You could have sworn she was sneakily glancing over at you a few times too.


She said she didn't want to be disturbed though…
Maybe I can go into town and get her something nice… Yeah! That'll definitely be good!
…What does she like though. Do I know?

Roll #0 10 = 10


I'm sure she's still around, right?


She likes whiskey, but that makes her pissy.
You also noticed she had quite the collection of swords in her cabin.
You remember the scent of her perfume, you believe it's called eau de clopogne
You also remember she has a few spells at her disposal, which probably means she received a mage training at some point in her life

She went back to the crew's quarters. She's lying in one of the hammocks, staring at the ceiling and apparently deep in thought.


Hmm… discounting the whiskey, what to look for her…

Roll #0 1 = 1


Lean against the wall/doorframe/whatever.

"Why hello there dear. Whatcha' thinking about?"


A new sword!
Something absolutely lovely… regal and beautiful, just like her, but not some decorative only thing…
To the… wherever they sell swords!

Roll #0 1 = 1



You remember it's already past midnight, all the stores are closed. Besides, it would mean you'd have to take a sloop to get to shore seeing as how the Wavedancer is anchored outside of the harbor right now.

She startles slightly and nearly falls out of her hammock.

"O-oh… uh… nothing at all really!"

Oh man, look at that blush


I smirk.
"Really? Nothing at all? I find it hard to believe that a pretty mare such as yourself has nothing on her mind!"


I guess that'll have to wait for another time.
Maybe she's not busy now though. I walk back below deck and walk over to her door. Does it sound like she's doing anything?

Roll #0 4 = 4


"Heh heh… Thank you… Uh, I mean… I guess I was, but it was nothing special."

She quietly gets out of her hammock and looks around her a few times to doublecheck in nopony else is listening in.

You can't hear shit from the inside.

Your call


"Oh, do tell. You seem quite interesting, my dear. I would love to get to know you better."


…Maybe I'll give her a bit more time.
I don't want to seem clingy after all. Or needy.
…But she might be disappointed in me if I don't show up and try to help her after she just had to kill one of her own crew members!
Sod it.
I knock on her door.


Bedtime for me. We'll pick this up tomorrow or some other time before Wednesday


She smiles at you abashedly

"Oh, I'm just boring old me. I was just thinking about stupid stuff. Uh… stupid private stuff."

You hear an annoyed sigh come from inside the room, as well as hoofsteps as she nears the door and opens up.

"Did I not make myself clea- Oh… It's you…"

She averts her gaze away from you, staring at the ground instead.

"I… I'm not sure what to say…"


I look to both sides of me and upon seeing nobody is there, enter, closing the door behind me.
"You don't need to say anything… just, how do you feel about it? About… having to do that?"


what are you doing here bird this is no place for you


"Oh, but why, you look anything but boring! I'm sure you wouldn't mind telling good old Shaky a thought or two!"


She still hasn't looked you in the eye, but she does frown

"Peppermint had been given warnings about her behavior before. She was reckless and sometimes downright neurotic. What I did was… wrong. Not by the books at all. But…"

Her voice trails off after that as she keeps her gaze directed to the floor.

"Well… I'm just worried you know? I-I… I feel so powerless about this whole expedition. Like… insignificant. Like I'm not helping at all to solve the problem…"


"Hey now… you were under intense pressure, and you were acting in the defense of two of your crew members. I- I can never approve of what you did… but I certainly can't blame you for what you did."
Walk over to her and pull her into a hug.


"Oh, don't worry dear, every small bit counts! In the large scale of things, we are all just small cogs, but together, we can make wonders happen!"


"But I… I killed her. I shot have just wounded her, shot her in the leg, but when I saw you were in danger I just automatically aimed to kill."

She falls back on her haunches

"I let my emotions influence my judgement."

"Yeah I know but still… What if it isn't enough? I have family living back in 'Bella, I signed up to make sure they'd be safe…"


"You do your part, and that's more than enough. Why, I have already done mine to make sure all ponies back there, including your family, will be safe! And I am not done!"


"You… for me?"
I sit down next to her and wrap my hooves around her, and nuzzle her.
"She'd already shot you once before… she was dangerous. Neurotic and probably a bit demented."


She shuffles on her hooves awkwardly
"Well that's nice and all… but this is about me…"

You don't know that she shot the captain, silly
She tenses up as you get close to her, her voice starting to waver slightly
"But it wasn't by the code! It was… it was a terrible act on my part. Unacceptable even."

She covers her face in her hooves, her breathing suddenly increasing in both pace and volume.


"Then yes, please, be a dear and tell me more about yourself. I'm fascinated and amazed just by looking at you, imagine your effect on me once you start talking!"


She frowns
"Are you… are you mocking me? I don't like your tone very much…"


Hug her tighter!
"Hey hey hey… shh… you stop that. There's not a pony alive that's perfect. Everyone has some kind of error in judgement at one point or another."


"Mocking you? Why I'd never! I merely tried to compliment you!"


She moves her head back up and looks at you, her eyes slightly watery
"I'm a captain, errors have a high cost for me…"

She scrunches her face
"You're trying kinda too hard…"


"Excuse me then, dear. Still, I did mean it when I said I'd love to hear and know more about you, so do go on."


"Yes, but sometimes there's just things you can't control… it's better to accept what's happened and use that to motivate you to do better in the future. You're a great pony and a great captain, Night. I know you can keep your crew safe. But being stuck on one little… well, maybe not little, but being stuck on this won't help you!"
Give her a kiss.


She visibly relaxes.

"I suppose…"

"Hmmm… what do you want to hear even?"


"Whatever you want to tell me, honey."


"That's the spirit!… Do you still have reports to write?"


"But… I mean this is just awkward! I-I don't know what to tell you. We just met minutes ago!"

She shakes her head and gets back up, stretching herself out

"No… I finished them all."

She lets out a very loud yawn


"Sounds like some pony needs some sleep… c'mon. Bed time for you missy."
I help her up and lead her to her bed.


"Every good thing has a start, doesn't it? Is it so bad that I want to know more about the prettiest mare on the ship?"


The faintest of smiles appears on her face as she follows your lead and lies down on her bed.

"Well… I guess my name might be a good start. I'm Obsidian Flame, I'm just a simple sailor as well as the cook's assistant. So yeah… I clean stuff and cook stuff."


I do a little bow, then take one of her front hooves into mine and plant a small kiss on it like a true gentlepony.
"Pleased to meet you, Obsidian Flame! My name is Shaky! May I call you Obsidian, or do you prefer Flame?"


She blushes slightly
"O-oh it's all the same to me, really. Nice to meet you Shaky!"

If NL is stopping I'm going 2bed


"I'll call you Flame then!"
We can continue later


"See! It's not so hard to smile!"
I giggle and climb in next to her, scooting closer to her.
"Requesting to spend the night here… Captain~"


We can pick this up again tomorrow


"A-alright! Well… like I said, I like cooking a lot. My parents own an inn in Port-o-Bella so I used to help them with preparing meals for the guests that came by."

She smiles coyly and leans in, locking you in a loving kiss.

"Permission granted, miss nurse."


I giggle and move myself closer to her, wrapping my hooves around her.
"Why thank you, captain. I can safely say that, without a doubt… there's no place I'd rather be right now."
Give her a kiss.


"Oh? I am quite sure that your cookings are all delicious! May I ask you what your favourite of them is? Mine is none other than a fresh, warm and tender pie!"


"Oh, I just love soups. I love making them, I love eating them, they're great. Really healthy too! Back at the inn, my father and I used to prepare a new and different soup every day! We did some really creative stuff sometimes… oh it was so much fun!"

Seems like she loosening up now that she's talking about cooking

She bites on the tip of her lower lip and winks at you

"I could think of a few places myself~"


"It is a nurse's job to never leave a pony in need, you know~"
I return her wink.


Good, just let things stay on the rails.

"Oh yes, then again, who doesn't like them? A good soup can cure every illness! I especially like the ones with taters, those are a real treat. What about you, my dearest Flame?"


Goddamn name

She softly starts putting down tender kisses along your neck
"And as a captain, it's my duty to aid those who require help~"

"Oh gosh… so many to choose from!"

She thinks to herself for a moment

"Hmmm… If I had to choose… Chervil soup! Yeah! Chervil soup with cream added to it."

You see her mouth water as she closes her eyes and recalls the taste.

"Too bad it's so hard to come by around these parts…"


I smirk.
"Tell you what, next time I'll go out to the city, I'll do my best to get a whole batch of them for you. Would you like that?"


I coo under her ministrations and pull her closer and rub her shoulders.
"Ooh… perhaps maybe we can… both, help each other?~"


Her eyes widen

"Really? You'd do that? They're not cheap, they're usually imported from Equestria!"

She moves on and starts softly nibbling on your ear while using her telekinesis to tease you a little down there.

"Mmmmm~ What a wonderful thought… I've got a few ideas for that~ "


I let out a sigh as I feel her magic start.
"Aaahh… me too… maybe we can- oohh… share?~"
I return the motions and also use my hoof as I kiss her neck.


"Oh, my dear, nothing is too expensive to prevent me from making such a beautiful mare as yourself happy."


"Of course we can, I… h-hah… wouldn't want it any other w-way~"

The two of spend the next half hour HORSE SCISSORING and HORSE 69ING until both of your needs are sated and lie next to each other in bed, still panting slightly.

Rolling to see how good it was

She blushes again and gives you a soft push
"O-oh you…"
the mare sighs happily
"Thank you… I-it really means a lot to me that you would go through that kind of trouble. It'll be so nice to smell that delicious familiar scent again…"

Roll #0 10 = 10


That may have been the best experience both of you have had in a long damn time. Hot damn, that was so hot and steamy the windows in this cabin are all dampened. North Star pulls you in for a very sticky but warm hug and whispers in your ear.

"Thank you."


"Don't you worry dear, you will be able to. I'll make sure of it. You deserve it, sweetheart."


I return the hug and give her a quick kiss.
"No, thank you… I love you."


"Thank you!"
She gives you a quick peck on the cheek and jumps back into her hammock

Soon, the both of you drift to a very peaceful and nice slumber, huddled closely together to each other.


"This place is way less crowded than where I was before… Say, would you mind if I slept here, honey?~"


She looks at you, cocking an eyebrow

"Well… okay. Just don't get any funny ideas alright!?"


"Why, I'd never!"

Get into the hammock next to hers.


"Alright then… Good night Shaky…"

She settles down and closes her eyes


"Good Night, Flame. Sweet dreams!"




Last time on TeoTS, the party went and sought out Light Heart, an alleged rogue agent in service of Earl Grey. Despite the destruction of the to be delivered documents, the party found the pegasus in her mansion and confronted her, though not before nearly killing her.

Light Heart is currently lying on her very messy looking king sized bed, having suffered a near heart failure earlier. Thanks to medications and a heart massage coming from the party's own nurse, she is feeling better already. The stallion remains at her side, looking thoroughly concerned for the mare's wellbeing. There is no trace of the unicorn mare that teleported away earlier.


I flash both of them an honest smile.
"So have we all learned our lessons today?~"


>tfw 10/10 lesbian sex is in future
Fuck. Yeah.
Give her a once over. Any other issues with her?

Roll #0 3 = 3


The mare scrunches her nose

"No? Frankly, I'm still not sure why I just got assaulted in my own mansion by a bunch of strangers!"

She looks perfectly fine


"Earl Gray the donkey? Ring any bells?"


I snap out of my self-induced coma
"You didn't even tell her what we were doing here before attacking her?"


"Wasn't me! Don't look my way, honey!"


"As… ridiculous as it sounds, please excuse us. Not all of us are…"
I shoot a glare towards Scaeva.
"…completely there. Or aren't complete sociopaths."
'We were getting there, then the lunatic went and stabbed her completely out of the blue."


"Why else would you be getting a resignation letter? unless this group of impossibly incompetent ponies have no idea of how to deliver a message proper"
"Would you like to be a problem as well?"
prepare a trap
"I guarantee the results will vary~"

Roll #0 5 = 5


She frowns slightly

"Yes. Him. What about him?"

"You barge your way inside home, blowing open my front door instead of ringing the bell, assault and threaten me and now I'm supposed to believe that crap?"

Her face starts flushing red as her breathing increases in speed again, prompting to stallion to quietly motion the mare to simmer down a little.


Glare at him and Scaeva
"Dat ya shouldn't try to kill ponies before speaking to'em?"
"Ah'm sorry, we were told to.. How was that? Convince ya not to talk about… Stuff, I guess.
Can't remember, dat hack over there got the info."
Point at Running Luck.


"Hey, if it helps, I broke in through the upper stairs window. You really need to clean the mess in this house, I almost thought for a second I was at the wrong place. Until I heard the explosion.
Anyhow, he said you have been talking and pocketing money where you should have kept your mouths shut and the money flowing."


"Threatening to harm the only person who can save your life isn't gaining you any favors, you know."
"I knocked! And nobody answered! And I WAS going to teleport inside and unlock it like that but then someone went and blew the damn door open!"


She throws her hooves in the air angrily

"What resignation letter? I operate independently! And the only things you gave me so far were a bunch of throwing knives to the damn chest!"

"What in the name of Equestria are you talking about? I already told that damn vagrant I don't work for him anymore! What the heck did he tell you?"

"Of course I'm not going to hear a damn knock on a door that is thicker than even you people are. That's why there's a bell."


"You can believe whatever you want. From the looks of things I can tell you're doing well enough with that alone"
"Like anything you've been doing has been at all helpful either. Take care"

"Do what we're supposed to do. I'm going to get some air"
head outside and to the bar


"Look for dat freak on da way dere!"


"Well. Ya can have this as compensation for the damage, but we seem ta have done our job here."
I give him 100 coins from that pouch of bits I got.


I sigh.
"Never mind… I'm sorry for the damage we caused. I suppose offering my services isn't exactly equal compensation, but it's all I can really do. Do you need any further medical assistance?"
"Good riddance…"


"Well there's our problem. You didn't work for him anymore, hence, you were crossing his business. Sorry sweetheart, it's nothing personal. Just a warning."

"You are not going to give money to her will you? We've been sent here to stop her from doing stupid things, not encourage her!"
Touch down next to her and whisper.
"Stop being naive, if you give her that money the donkey will find out eventually, and the next ponies he'll send might actually kill her."


"Would you rather deal with the guards then, hm?"


Surely I am not late

Roll #1 10 = 10


"Yes. Now don't give her that, unless you want to be the one who signs her execution papers by doing so, honey."


>Brings the papers
"Well ya still not be getting any~"
I swipe his snout with my tail.
"oi sis, let's get back to that donkey!"


I smirk.
"Oh we shall see about that, later, honey, later."


"I swear if this paper is cursed I'm writing on stone slabs from now on…"


Of course not you were here all along, overseeing everything that went on.

"You come back here or I'll have you arrested!"

The mare makes no effort to chase after you and you quickly leave the mansion, heading back to the same bar from earlier. you will arrive back at there next turn.

It's slightly drizzling outside and evening will

She angrily slaps the bits out of your grip

"You think I care about the damn door? I've got plenty of money already! The point is that you attacked me in my own house! I want to know how screwed I am!"

"So it's true then? He wants me dead?"

The mare groans and drops her head back on the pillow

"Yeah, I'm screwed."

approach very soon.


>approach very soon.
Don't mind that, screwed up on my part


arriving there!

look around is that donkey there?

Roll #0 1 = 1


"I thought you were saying he was a vagabond earlier? Does he really hold that much sway that he can… order your death?"


"Listen, you said you were rich, right? If you would be as kind as donating some of that sum to us, we could just pretend that you are dead and you could be on your merry way, out of this port!"


"Well da Donkey never told us ta kill ya, it was just that one crazy horse's idea."


I don't even consider it odd to be late from a place I was the whole time any more.
"Well that is the price for crossing a ghost I assume."


You get hopelessly lost in the city instead

"He doesn't own any property, but he's got a lot of contacts he could call in on, that's for damn sure."

She narrows her eyes and glowers at you, looking ready to retort your offer. Instead, she stays quiet for a moment, her face lighting up soon after.

"Out of this port? You… you have a ship then?"

"I'm not entirely sure about that, sweetheart."

"I didn't cross him! Well… maybe I did… but he crossed me first! I work independently now!"


"With keeping count of all these crossings I'm sure you'd make a fine traffic director.
As for the ship, it probably sank by now. What with the cataclysmic storms and all."


"You have the money, I can settle a ride for you. No one dies, I get paid. Everypony wins."


try to find my way through

Roll #0 1 = 1


"Yes! We do have a ship, but, erm… I'm not quite sure how well the captain will take to having someone who may or may not be being hunted by a supposed… underground-information-kingpin broker-person-thing. But I'll see if I can convince her!"
"Don't say that!"


"Oh don ya worry, Ah placed an hex on da ship, no bad luck can sink it! No bad luck from a pony talkin nonsense like dat one, fo' sure!"


I nod.
"Ya, we have a ship. Can't describe it right now but look fer a very stressed cap'n. No need to pay if she lets you on board."
I turn around and finally leave for Titt's.


"What if it was good luck the ship sank? Like ti was destined for horrible things but by sinking it saved us all?"


Damn autoupdater
She gives you a dull look, but doesn't comment any further
She taps her hoof against her chin for a while.
"With the money I have I could buy my own ship… but that would be traceable and take time… Why did you say you took this job again? If you have a ship of your own it seems weird that you'd do odd jobs like assaulting innocents."
You end up in the slums of the city. Lots of shady characters around here…
Roll a d10
She waves a hoof dismissively
"Don't worry, I know how to charm a mare into my favor."


Actually laugh at this.
"Den, dat ship will destroy da heavens!"

Sensing an abrupt shift in the tides of luck, Running Luck instinctively points over his left shoulder.
"Check 'em"


"…And how do you plan to charm her, exactly?"
I raise an eyebrow at her.


"Check wat?"
"We're savin' da world and our island on it. Get to da docks."


"Nothing, nothing. It's just a… reflex of sorts. Comes with being so attuned to the swings of luck."
"Well does it really matter?"


Looks like everypony around is wise enough not to try and fuck with you. You are still in the slums though, not a favorable place to be in.

You have prepared a trap

She points a hoof at you accusingly
"In case you've forgotten, you are the one in trouble here. I could have your ship and the entire crew locked down in port for the next year or so if I wanted to."
She gets up out of bed
"But fine, I'll go with your deal. If you're nice enough I might even help you with whatever it is you're doing. What did you say your ship was called again?"
You will get there next turn
She batters her eyelashes at you
"Female charm, sweetie. In this line of work you need to know how to work with ponies and bring them on your side."

She smiles and turns to the stallion

"Be a dear and pack all my necessary gear, will you? Once that's done we can burn this place down to the ground and get the heck out of this city."


Damn name


Is there anything going on in the streets?

Roll #0 6 = 6


"If we wanted to we could just slit your throat before you got another word out of your pretty little mouth, but we are no savages. No need to be cocky here, darling. And the ship is called 'When-are-you-going-to-play-because-you-will-regret-setting-me-up.' Not very conventional, I know."


"If you still have a port in a year. Who knows. An earthquake could sink it in minutes…

Speaking of bringing sides and gear… I got no clever segue. What is it the ghost hobo did to anger you?"


"Well your 'female charm' won't be necessary! I can handle her just fine."


"No fun in these slums? Now that's something new.."
head back to the bar, dammit

Roll #0 5 = 5


It's drizzling slightly, looks like most merchants and craftsponies are cleaning up shop as the day winds down to an end.
You and >>220697 have arrived back at the tavern by now
She chuckles
"Killing me? My, what a good plan. In case you didn't notice, one of my associates teleported herself away from here. She'll be more than happy to inform the authorities, I assure you."
She moves up to you, bringing her face close to yours
"Give me the name of the ship. I'll be there shortly."
"Anger me? He didn't necessarily anger me. He just held back large sums of money behind my back. So I decided to search for my own luck, alone."
She gestures at the room around her
"As you can see, I've been successful so far."
"Whatever you say!"
Meanwhile, it appears the stallion is obediently rounding up all kinds of items and putting them in a couple of bags.


I'm with my sister here, right?


Let's say you are


head into a shady part and make sure my trappy self is still up to par

"Did she now? I'm not moving until you are. You're coming back to the ship with us once your generous offer to be taken away from this city have been handed over."


"Oh. How terribly terribly dull. And here I was, hoping you were somepony interesting.
Oh well…"
Are any of her supposedly impressive items interesting?

I head to the bar counter.
I put some coin down on the counter.

Roll #0 1 = 1


You are still fully rigged
The donkey is still sitting on the exact same spot from before
She moves up and whispers in your ear
"Maybe I could pay you in kind, how about that?"
"I don't care very much for too much excitement dear, it's bad for my heart."
The stallion is rounding up all kinds of things, clothes, scrolls, jewelry, potions, and so on.
He disappears for a while, coming back afterwards and carrying a small cage with a very young dragon inside it.
You get a glass of very murky water instead
Expensive murky water!


head over and sit on the table again
"She won't be doing much of whatever now. Your part of the deal starts now."


"Wat is this? I demand alcohol! Dontcha have any rum?!"

Roll #0 10 = 10


"Hey hayseed, mah sista ask'd for rum!"

Roll #0 10 = 10


I smirk and whisper back.
"Maybe you could…~ But if you throw in some money too I will tell the donkey that I personally killed you and set your house on fire… you'll be safe the rest of your life, honey! Don't play hard to get!"


"Hm? A dragon? My my… does it have a name? Can it talk yet?"
Lets go look at the dragon.
Surely nothing bad will happen.

Roll #1 5 = 5


"Is that a dragon? Why do you have a dragon?"


"Ah? But what about the money? I still require 200 bits, good sir."
"Ofcourse! Heh! Ah was just kiddin' ya see!"
He quickly fetches a few bottles of his best rum and puts them in front of you.
"Here ya go! On da house!"
The mare shrugs
"A name? Yeah I think my employees just call it Wildfire. It can't talk, no."
The dragon doesn't look particularly happy in its position.
"Watch yourself around her, she tends to bite ponies for no damn reason."
"They're handy for my line of work. With the right type of parchment you can use them to send messages to places as well as receive them back you see."

She rolls her eyes
"Fine, I'll throw in some money into the deal. You'll have to be patient though, I barely have anything around this place in terms of currency. It's spread all over different banks to ensure its safety."


"Pshaw. I've had ponies bite me for no damn reason. Heck I've had inanimate objects bite me in my time. Getting bitten by a dragon would be a notable step up."
Lets smile at the dragon
"Hello Wildfire!"

Roll #1 7 = 7


Drink up!

I forgot the name of the ship

"Huh… how interesting! Does it just not want to talk or can it not talk at all?"


I grin even wider and offer a hoof.

do i know/remember who had the bits? if so find them!

Roll #0 6 = 6


And I approach it. What does it look like?

Roll #0 7 = 7


The little dragon just growls at you and backs up in her cage as much as she can.
Tastes fantastic!
"Alright missy, sounds like a good deal ta me!"
The bartender motions one of his servants to go fetch a barrel before turning back to you
"So… what's the occasion?"
The dragon has a light blue coat and ruby eyes
"It can talk a few words in pony, sure. It doesn't like ponies very much though. Speaking in pony even less so."
She shakes on it
"I'm a very honest mare, mister…?"
That hit you like a damn train.
And you don't even know what the hell a train is, so goddamn. Strong stuff!
Southern Sands has them


approach her
"You. Tribal one. You have the 200 that goat-thing is asking for right?"


"I'm sure I can manage something…"
I walk a bit closer to it, and put on the friendliest smile I can.
"Hi there. Can you understand me?"

Roll #0 7 = 7


Roll to do Drunkard things.
Can I get back to the boat at least?

Roll #0 8 = 8


"Oh please. The poor thing is terrified. …or deeply frustrated.
I wonder when was the last time it got to burn off a little steam?"

Roll #1 5 = 5


"Oh, how rude of me!"
Give her a bow and a kiss on her hooves.
"The name's Shaky!"


"Ah just like rum, and the ship don't have any."
"Nope. I have a hundred."
Entertain the patrons.

Roll #0 8 + 2 = 10


Oh nevermind, no boat.


"You low… alright then give me that 100, I'll get the other later"


"Why should I? We done the donkey's job, and now he be in debt ta us! Yer a worse negotiator than my sis!"


"Shit happens. And We don't know where he actually is. Now make. with. the. money."


"Don'cha be mean with him!"
Then, I focus the image.
"Nah wait, be mean all ya want."
"Oh shut it already or ah'm gonna zap ya!"


Ponder for a while…
Waiting on next turn


"You really want to go through with this?"
is my trap still ready?


"Look, ya almost killed dat gurl back dere, an'ah said nuthin, but if ya keep dis' up ah'm gonna call the spirits on ya stronk time!"
And give her my most mefithic alcohol breath.

Roll #0 7 = 7


It huffs, producing some smoke from its nostrils
"Look, you can play with the dangerous lizard all you want once we are on the ship, but we need to go soon. We're almost done packing and I'd like to light this place up soon."
You can either stay with your sister and be sexy or stagger your way back to the boat
Light Heart cocks an eyebrow
"It's a baby, I don't think it craves for that kind of attention yet."
"Ah see, sounds good ta me!"
You start shaking that booty, earning you more than a few hungry looks. Several stallions start grouping around you, all of them drooling as they watch your slender body move around.


She gives you a cocky smile
"Charmed, I'm sure."
It is.


wave it away
"Listen you drunk dumbshits. I don't care what you think of me, but I'll send you both to tartarus and leave you there if you don't get this thing moving along!


I make an illusion with a copy of the pouch of money to take the pouch to the Donkey.
"Fake money for a fake pony!"

Roll #0 3 = 3


Give this gutter-minded pony a dull look
"I meant if it has gotten a chance to kill something. Or at least fight something. You know, work out some stress."


"Go ahead, I guess? I should… check back at the ship to make sure the captain's okay with accepting a new traveler! Yeah!"
I leave and return to the ship as quickly as I can.
…So does this mean most of the minisession is non-canon now? E- Even the 10/10 sex? ;_;

Roll #0 9 = 9


"Great… fuck this"
sigh and head back to the ship instead

Roll #0 10 = 10


"So, shall we be on our way?"


"Ah, nice one sis!"
"Now let's shake 'dis booty!"

Roll #0 6 = 6


The roll was, indeed, to dance.


The illusion of the donkey frowns
"I'm afraid that wont do, miss."
She rolls her eyes and waves a hoof dismissively
"Yeah right, like that thing actually knows what stress is. I just use it to send messages, nothing else."
Not yet, that happens at night. She's currently locked in her cabin getting herself drunk.
You can either destroy the established canon and replace it by visiting her now or just talk to her about the mare joining the day after
You arrive back at the ship in no time. Most of the deck is empty, the crew spending their time in various taverns in port.
You also start dancing, much to the joy of the gathered stallions and mares. Some of them start clapping and chanting loudly, urging you to keep going


Goddammit, forgot you again
The mare looks at her servant stallion, who merely nods.
"Looks like. Everypony get the hell out, time to torch this mansion!"


"Oh yah! Well ya ain't gettin' any! We did ya job, ya will give us the info or…!"

Roll #0 5 = 5


head below decks and make sure no one is here before making sure my trappy self stays that way through the sleep '1d10+2'
then head to my hammock and sleep this bullshit day away

Roll #0 3 = 3

Roll #1 4 + 2 = 6




"Messages can be very stressing…
Can I take her out of the cage for a moment?"


"Yeah, give us da words! If da islands blows, ya blow too!"

Roll #0 9 = 9


Follow her outside, do not lose sight of her.


Not like I have anything else to really do… Canon smashing is go!
I head below deck and to the captain's quarters.


"Or what exactly? What do you plan on doing? The agreement was that you would do this job for me as well as pay me the necessary money."
You jump in and settle down in one of the hammocks
"Didn't you hear what I said? Get out! You can let that thing bite your face off once we get to that ship!"
She's not going outside just yet, instead heading into another room full of barrels.

Highly explosive barrels.

"Tell me, do you like fireworks, Shaky?"


"I could appreciate a nice view just like any other, my dear."


Heading home atm. Be back in a few!


"Oh you are no fun at all. Indeed I preferred the bucket of shit from this morning to your dull company. Such a single track mind on such a wasted body. Truly an exemplar of what makes for a dull dull pony.
Fine. Let us head back to the boat then as it seems to be the only thing you can fit inside your space-starved heads."
Surely I can get these clowns to a boat

Roll #1 4 = 4


"Nah. De agreement was either for da money or da job. We chose da job. Dontcha think we'd do ya dirty work for ya AND pay ya for it. Besides, yo world ends with ours so you'd better cough up the info!"

Roll #0 5 = 5


"Good. I'm going to light a fuse here in a moment. And when that happens we are going to have to run. Hard. Understand?"
She picks up a lighter between her teeth
"Please shut up, you are ruining the moment. And make sure you don't get caught in the blast, understand?"
"Hmmm… I'm sorry but I'm not so sure about that, missy. After all, you never signed a contract or anything!"


"Allright, so ya just want to blew up with da islands?"

Roll #0 1 = 1


There is no way I am caught in any blasts I did not at least cause myself
I'll just walk away calmly like a badass to prove to these ponies life can be more than "boat boat boat wah wah we want boat"

Roll #1 7 = 7


"I'd rather not count on you miscounting the fuse."

I start to hover in the air slightly.
"So I'll just be around the corner, I think you can follow me out of your own house, can't you, honey?"

Start heading out before she blows shit up.


"Well. Happy apocalypse to ya then."
I keep dancing with the crowd.

Roll #0 5 + 2 = 7


You hear a muffled murmur of approval. Seconds later, the mare zips past you, dragging you along outside
As the two of you rush through the garden, a deep rumble can be heard from inside the mansion, followed by a deafeningly loud explosion, the force of it sending the both of you tumbling over the lawn.
You on the other hand, get to be a cool colt.
You walked out of the mansion long before those two did and get to slowly walk away from the mansion as it gets torn apart in a huge ball of raging fire behind you. You don't even look back, because cool guys don't look at explosions.
The illusion shrugs
"I can just move my business to Equestria, my de-"
The donkey interrupts himself as a loud explosion can be heard a distance away


Lets strike a pose to top it off.
Or at least to attract the bad luck now instead of later when it might be dangerous

Roll #1 3 = 3


I chuckle.
"That was certainly something."
Help her up.
Make sure to touch her butt in the process.

"Now let's wing it before anypony shows up."

Roll #1 4 = 4


I swing by his table
"Ya know, it might be a lil' too abrupt for you to do that. And I betcha it would be more costly than measly one hundred coin."
And then keep dancing.

Roll #0 9 + 2 = 11


Yup. You called it. A piece of torn furniture lands right on your head, knocking you to the ground.
Too slow, she was already up, dusting herself off.

"Yes, lets."

She turns to her servant stallion and Running Luck.

"Follow mister Shaky and I, if you please."
"That is assuming you'll even fix this whole mess that will come down on you soon."


Lead her back to the ship.


I shout from the crowd
"Life is a gamble!"
Keep dancing.

Roll #0 5 + 2 = 7


Spit out the grass and mud
"As expected. Now then, I believe we had a boat that is yet to sink to catch."


I'm going to go ahead and call it a session here. I'm honestly too distracted to keep this up. Hopefully we can continue this somewhere this weekend. Or just have a couple of minisessions instead. Sorry.
