PirateQuest: Chapter 3.2: Moon Phases Wf+6 352443

Since everyone was sleepy last time, we'll just say Campfire didn't take the action to trip that tripwire. Continue as if nothing happened.

Emrille [Gunslinger] 352448

I was trying to convince the dunkey not to be useless.

Light Heart [Warlord] 352449

I was waiting for the unicorns to return

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 352450

I was standing around the rock pile until Chip gave the all-clear.
I'll refrain from trying to light my horn again until the Anti-magic trap thing has been dealt with.

Wf+6 352452

Dunkey says get dunked.

Emrille [Gunslinger] 352454

"Come the fuck on, you can't do anything or go anywhere anyway! You may as well go all the way and abandon her afterwards if you are really so set on it, but is this how you treat a job?!"

Chip(DD knght) 352457

I light a candle.

I look at the orange pony
"Could you do me a favor? Can you do that floating thing you just did and let it near the mirror again?"

Spring Water [Charlatan] 352460

"Just leave him be Emrille…"

Emrille [Gunslinger] 352463

"You saw how dangerous it was, and you got hurt even though you tried to stay out of trouble, we need each of us!"

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 352464

"If you're certain you'd like to lose another candle…"
And I'll light up my horn, grab the candle, and gently lift it towards the mirror.


Go back to the huge room we came in from and have a look around for inscription on the walls or anything out of the ordinary.

Roll #1 8 = 8

Spring Water [Charlatan] 352468

"I know it's dangerous but… we can't force him to fight, now can we?"

Wf+6 352470

"Enjoy gettin' yerself killed, ya blind turnip."

The walls, now lit by candles, show a large number of Lunar symbols. You can see a stairway to the south, much wider than the two you came down to enter Curry's room or this chamber.

As the candle passes the pile of rubble into proximity of the mirror, it vanishes.

Emrille [Gunslinger] 352472

"I'm just saying he won't get shit if he bails on us. I'm just trying to shed some light on his stupidity."

"Fine, have it your way, stay here and do nothing at all."

Roll my eyes and head back to the others with Spring.

Felfire [Necromancer] 352474

Find Curry.
"Hey, any idea where that leads?"
Show him the stairway.

Spring Water [Charlatan] 352476

I sigh and follow, looking around for Summer

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 352478

"Oh, that? That's the way down to the second basement. Right across from the bottom of those stairs are the ones that lead to the third basement, and the hydra. The treasury is a bit off to the side on the second basement."

Chip(DD knght) 352481

I scratch my head.
"That is very very weird, I heard about unicorns using portals but why waste it on candles.

I grab a rock and throw it in the area where the candle vanishes, see if the rock vanishes on that spot too.

Wf+6 352482

It doesn't.

Emrille [Gunslinger] 352483

I glance at her.
"Try to actually stay out of trouble next time, okay? Like how I did? I hate seeing you getting hurt, and you know I can't heal or help you or anything."

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 352487

I hang back in the big room while Chip looks for traps.

Spring Water [Charlatan] 352488

"I had to protect Summer."

Felfire [Necromancer] 352489

"And just why are we walking down a hallway filled with traps if we have a clear path to the hydra?"
Cock a brow.

Chip(DD knght) 352493

"Gaahh… not good."
I stand up, light one of my candles and throw it in the area where I throw the rock, see if it vanishes or if it passes through.

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 352494

"I thought you wanted to see the library."

Emrille [Gunslinger] 352495

"Then hold her back from trouble or get her on a leash if that's what it takes to stop her from trying to run into her death. How close do you even have to be to heal somepony?"

Wf+6 352496

It vanishes.

Felfire [Necromancer] 352499

"Shouldn't we kill the hydr- Whatever. Library is fine with me. Ask if you need help."

Chip(DD knght) 352500

"Arrghh lightsources always die."
I enter the room without a lightsource(stepping past the tripwire carefully of course) and try to strain my eyes to see if I can detect any traps between me and the mirror.


Roll #1 8 + 2 = 10

Light Heart [Warlord] 352501

"Perhaps we should deal with the hydra first. It could be that it is guarding a alternative route to the library, no?"

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 352503

"Well, the library is up here on the first floor, and the hydra is on the third floor way at the bottom. I don't see how it could be guarding anything except where I need to bring miss Seas."

Wf+6 352505

You don't see any.

Spring Water [Charlatan] 352506

"It's not that easy in battle, Emrille. Healing from afar requires more concentration."

Emrille [Gunslinger] 352510

"And healing from up close risks your hides. If the ponies who are supposed to keep us alive die, we are all boned."

Summer Seas [Cleric] 352516

"But if you die, then we can't bring you back!"

Chip(DD knght) 352518

Haha time for recklessness.
"I'll approach the mirror!" I call back.
Approach the mirror, can I see my reflection? Where does it stand/hangs on?

Wf+6 352523

You can see a vague outline. It's too dark to make out details.

It's affixed to the wall.

Emrille [Gunslinger] 352526

"That's why we send in the pawns like Curry to take the hits for us and that's why I stay back do my work from a safe distance."

Felfire [Necromancer] 352527

Call out for him.
"If you avoid killing yourself and help me find some old bones I can send a skeleton in there!"

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 352529

"Miss Emrille, I am insulted."
I'll huff a bit.
"I'm a knight piece at least."

Spring Water [Charlatan] 352530

"It's just not possible to remove yourself from harms way when healing…"

I frown at her

Chip(DD knght) 352531

Haha… ha.
Grab a crossbow bolt and use it to lightly poke the surface of the mirror.

If solid, see if I can put the mirror down on the floor.

Wf+6 352533

It's solid. It seems to be attached to the wall pretty tightly, though. Roll if you want to rip it out.

Chip(DD knght) 352538

Here goes nothing

Roll #1 6 = 6

Summer Seas [Cleric] 352541

I frown at her.

Wf+6 352546

You rip the brick out of the wall. There is no a hole in the wall.

You are holding a brick with a mirror on it in the dark in a trapped corridor.

Emrille [Gunslinger] 352548

"Take one for the team."

"He is a fighter, isn't he? You two aren't. I'm just asking you two to try and not get yourself killed, because that would be no good for anypony. Especially me. Okay?"

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 352552

"Stay back with Seekkill."

Chip(DD knght) 352554

Bring the mirror back to the others so that Curry can inspect it.

"This looks magical, know anything about it?" I show him the mirror

Spring Water [Charlatan] 352555

"I can handle myself in battle if need be. If Summer is in danger, I wont let her get harmed."

I sigh
"We'll try."
I look at Summer
"You should be more careful with those miscasts, sweetie…"

Summer Seas [Cleric] 352556

"I- I know…"
I sniffle.
"It just… it just happens… my magic isn't good enough I guess…"

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 352557

I'll tap the mirror a bit and inspect it. '1d10'
If I fail to find anything suspicious, I'll try to pick it up with telekinesis and look at the other bits of it. '1d10'

Roll #1 3 = 3 / Roll #2 9 = 9

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 352560


"Filly Doctor strong magic."

Wf+6 352562

As you carry it back to where other candles are located, they vanish.

You pick it up with telekinesis. You don't notice anything out of the ordinary about the mirror.

Spring Water [Charlatan] 352564

I pat her on the head with a proud smile
"Your magic is great, honey. You're just… you just need some more practice to control it better."

"Sometimes a spell can go wrong… it's called a miscast."

Emrille [Gunslinger] 352566

"You need some sort of shield spell or something, really."

"What the… You think we should break that mirror?"

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 352568

Hmm. I wonder…
"Mister Chip, if you could stay there for a moment…"
I'll carry the mirror to the far side of the room we're in, but not close enough to hit the other candles.

Felfire [Necromancer] 352575

"Break a magic mirror? Do that as far as possible from me, alright?"

Chip(DD knght) 352576

I frown, not my candles!
"Alright be careful not to break it. That thing might fetch a price."

Chip(DD knght) 352581

With that mirror out of the way, I lit one of my candles and enter the room. Did my candle disappear?

Also how many candles do I still have?

Wf+6 352582

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 352585

"It's just an experiment to see if your candles come back after I move the mirror."
Do they?

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 352587

"Oh. Explains Island pony hit with lightning."
I cackle.

Wf+6 352590

They do not.

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 352592

Well, I'll leave it in the northwest corner of the room, well away from the other candles and hopefully out of range of the ones behind the debris wall.

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 352598

"What mirror do?"

Chip(DD knght) 352605

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 352606

"It seems to eat light."

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 352609

"Take with us. Mirror eat more living fires."

Spring Water [Charlatan] 352611

"That's… weird."

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 352612

"A good plan, however we would be walking blind. It would eat our lights as well."

Summer Seas [Cleric] 352615

"Can we just… point it in front of us? So it doesn't eat our light?"

Light Heart [Warlord] 352616

I wonder if the commodore has the same mirrors in his cabin…
"A good plan, but it will also make us walk through the darkness."

Emrille [Gunslinger] 352617

"We can deal with those, but we can't see in the dark."

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 352618

"That's just… wait. Miss Spring, if you could bring a candle around the back of the mirror, please?"
And I'll turn it so that the mirror is facing the wall.

Summer Seas [Cleric] 352620

Ooh! Ooh!
I try to do that!

Roll #1 5 = 5

Spring Water [Charlatan] 352621

"I suppose?"
Do as told

Wf+6 352632

You have 35 candles left. And yes, any lit candles in proximity of the mirrors vanish.

It doesn't disappear. Remember of course that you're not just lifting a mirror. There's a big block of stone attached to the back.

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 352636

"Ha ha, a flash of brilliance, miss Seas!"
Putting the mirror face-down on the floor, I'll give Summer an enthusiastic ruffling of her mane, and then head back over to the debris wall.
"Mister Chip, it seems miss Seas has solved the mirror problem! We should be able to keep things lit up even if we run into another mirror."

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 352637

"See? Good idea."

Felfire [Necromancer] 352638

"Hey Chip, give me two candles."
Light and place one on top of each of my shadows, have them walk besides us but far enough for the candles not to disappear.

Chip(DD knght) 352640

Err… I know about the mirror, I mean I enter the darkened room with the tripwire trap, lit candle in my paw and see what is beyond the area past the mirror trap.
Got to conserve candles too now.

also rolling to see traps

Roll #1 2 + 2 = 4

Chip(DD knght) 352643

Throw her two candles.

Emrille [Gunslinger] 352645

There's still a pitch black area ahead of us, right?"

Wf+6 352649

You can only see the tripwire that you've left untriggered and the hole in the wall where you removed the brick that the mirror was on.

It's now slightly illuminated by Chip's candles.

Chip(DD knght) 352650

I am exploring it now, I'll give the go signal if its clear(I think)

Summer Seas [Cleric] 352655

"I- It worked?"

Emrille [Gunslinger] 352657

"Want me to shoot a flare ahead like before?"

Chip(DD knght) 352659

Walk past the mirror trap(or where it is supposed to be hoisted) and go beyond the unexplored parts.

Also rolling for trap detection

Roll #1 2 + 2 = 4

Spring Water [Charlatan] 352660

I smile
"Good thinking, sweetie."

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 352662

"Alright everyone, carefully over the tripwire now. Unless mister Chip would like to try and disable it without setting it off?"
I'll smile.
"It would seem so, miss Seas. Often it is the simplest solution that is overlooked."

Felfire [Necromancer] 352664

Do that whole thing.

Summer Seas [Cleric] 352666

I smile up at both of them.
"It really worked? My idea worked?!"
I do a little hop of joy.

Chip(DD knght) 352667

I just turn a cold shoulder.
"Good, just stay there and take care of your mother."

Wf+6 352670

You don't see any traps. Your light forges ahead.

You think you can faintly see the end of the passage ahead.

Wf+6 352674

As soon as you speak, the floor collapses from under you and you feel a chilling wind from above.

Roll for agility.

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 352678

I follow the other and carefull-
Nope. I stop before the rubble pile when I hear the floor collapse.

Chip(DD knght) 352683

"I'll go forward ponies. I'll report back if all is clear." I call back.

Walk slowly forward toward the end of the corridor, all the while keeping my senses and eyes up to see if there are irregularities on the walls that might signify a trap of some sort.


Roll #1 4 + 2 = 6

Chip(DD knght) 352684

"Stay there for a moment."

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 352685

I'll yank Chip back with TK if he fails his Dodge roll. '1d10'

Roll #1 1 = 1

Spring Water [Charlatan] 352686

Wf+6 352687

I'll take that as your agility roll, you fall into the darkness of the pit. You hit the floor. It's… oddly slimy. And metallic.

Wf+6 352689

You create a mystic lasso with your TK and manage to drag yourself along with him into the pit. You also slam onto a slimy, metallic floor.

Felfire [Necromancer] 352691

"Not for long."
Can I send a shadow with wings to pull him up?

Roll #1 4 = 4

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 352692

"Mister Chip, has anyone mentioned you're terribly heavy?"

Chip(DD knght) 352693

"Hello?" I call out

Look up, how far did I fall?

Spring Water [Charlatan] 352694

I stand at the entrance of the hole
"Anypony hurt!?"

Summer Seas [Cleric] 352695

"Mister Chip! Mister Curry!"
I rush over to the edge of the pit and look down in.
Can I see them?

Roll #1 10 = 10

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 352696

I stay back.

Emrille [Gunslinger] 352697

I groan, and fly to the edge of the pit.
"You okay?"

Chip(DD knght) 352698

"I'm fine?"
"I guess?"

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 352700

"I think I'm alright for the moment as well."
I'll light my horn. '1d10'

Roll #1 3 = 3

Wf+6 352701

The shadow flutters over the hole and jerks unnaturally before smashing down to the bottom on top of the two.

It's hard to tell in the dark. You and Curry are both injured, but you'd say probably at least fifteen feet.

At the edge of the hole, you can feel a powerful downdraft, but manage to keep from falling. You can see them clearly because Chip has a lit candle which is thankfully not lighting his fur on fire, rolled off to the side.

Summer Seas [Cleric] 352702

Can I heal them from up here?

Roll #1 6 + 5 = 11

Felfire [Necromancer] 352705

"What the…" Dismiss that shadow.

Chip(DD knght) 352706

"What we need is more light."
I held the candle high in the air and see where we are.

If not sufficient light one more and hand it to Curry.

Wf+6 352707

You can't quite muster the spark.

…Perception check for Chip and Curry.

Chip's feeling better…

Chip(DD knght) 352710


Roll #1 1 = 1

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 352711

Come on now, it has to work eventually! '1d10'

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

Summer Seas [Cleric] 352712

"Momma! Do you… oooh! Use your rope!"
I gesture for her to come over here.

Emrille [Gunslinger] 352713

"We have to seal that thing that blows down the current or we'll never get past."

Wf+6 352715

You jerk the candle up into the face of a chimera, freshly awoken by the noise of your fall.


Well, ignorance is bliss.

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 352717

"Find monster?"

Light Heart [Warlord] 352718

"Well that sounds lovely."
Shoot it from up here with my pistol
Cheap shot

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 352719

Oh dear. I'll yell up to the unicorns while readying my trident.
"Miss Spring, how good are you and miss Seas at lifting folk?"

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 352720

And I carefully step over the tripwire and move towards the group.

Emrille [Gunslinger] 352721

I suppose we can see the chimera as well?
"Heads up!"

Use some air magic to counter the draft from above and hit the monster.

Roll #1 9 + 3 = 12

Wf+6 352722

Make an agility roll to not fall in the pit while you do so.


Oh well.
Raise the shadow of the Chimera.

Roll #1 9 = 9



Roll #1 10 = 10

Spring Water [Charlatan] 352726

Take out the rope from my bags, is it long enough to reach down there? '1d10'

"My telekinesis might not be strong enough to lift you both!"

Roll #1 10 = 10

Chip(DD knght) 352729

"Curry, stand up!"
I raise my cudgel and began to attack the creature.
Is it large? do I get a bonus?

Roll #1 2 + 2 = 4

Wf+6 352731

>Deciding rope by dice roll
That's not how this works! But it's a 20 foot rope and the drop is 15 feet so it's technically correct.

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 352732

"Well, miss Spring, it's not like we're going anywhere! One at a time is fine!"
And I suppose I'll join Chip in attacking the Chimera.

Roll #1 8 + 2 = 10

Summer Seas [Cleric] 352740


"I- Is that a monster down there?!"

Spring Water [Charlatan] 352742

Then use that roll to get that rope secured and down there!

Wf+6 352744

It's large but not huge, no bonus. The bonus is also only 1, not 2.

It seems impervious to your attack and slams you against the wall.

Though you are certain you hit a weak spot on the neck, you flounder. Get it?

You don't fall in, but your bullet pings off harmlessly.

The shadow is raised.

You pound it back into the shadows, where it licks its wounds, preparing for another round of assault.

Rope is secure.

That's an agility roll they need to make.

Chip: 3/7 hits, 4/5 wounds
Curry: 5/5 hits, 4/5 wounds

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 352747

I arrive by the others next to the pit.
"What is it?"


Manticore-shadow, attack your former master! Gobble it up!

Roll #1 6 = 6


That's assuming I can't see it. If I can see it I shoot it with a special dart.
Cursed Arrow.

Roll #1 4 + 2 = 6

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 352750

Well, good thing I can fight it with TK and not have to really move. Though that is rather dull… '1d10' for agility, '1d10+2' for fighting if I can keep my hooves under me long enough.

Roll #1 4 = 4 / Roll #2 7 + 2 = 9


Use my telekinesis to help him get up the rope!

Roll #1 4 = 4

Summer Seas [Cleric] 352755

I try to assist!

Roll #1 1 = 1

Chip(DD knght) 352761

I grunted, I could tough this out.
Raise my cudgel and attack the creature.

Roll #1 1 = 1

Emrille [Gunslinger] 352762

I'm safe up here!
Distance shot, don't let it come out and attack them!

Roll #1 3 = 3


Try to fly in and catch her as she inevitably falls down

Roll #1 2 = 2


Also, Rosemary can heal Chip!

Roll #1 3 = 3

Wf+6 352769

Though it pounds furiously, it seems to do nothing at all.

Your shot staggers it, but you collapse into the pit as a result of the downdraft.

It slashes at Curry while he flails with the rope. That hurts!

Spring leans in too closely and falls into the pit. Stupid wind!

You leap after her and both of you crash to the floor. Summer is particularly bad off, and helpless.

He surely doesn't return fire, but spreading your wings like a peacock was a bad idea. They catch the airflow and send you tumbling down as well.

He brings his terrible paw down upon you, crushing you. You can't tough this one out. You're on the brink of death.

She falls in too! It's a falling party.

Emrille: 5/5 hits, 4/5 wounds
Light Heart: 5/5 hits, 4/5 wounds
>Rosemary: 2/2 hits, 4/5 wounds
Summer Seas: 0/5 hits, 4/5 wounds
Spring Water: 5/5 hits, 4/5 wounds
Curry: 3/5 hits, 3/5 wounds
Seekkill: 5/5 hits, 4/5 wounds
Chip: 0/7 hits 1/0 wounds

Wf+6 352770

Correction: Chip has 1/5 wounds instead of 1/0.


What the… Seriously? Send my other shadow down there to help too!
Both attack!

Roll #1 7, 4 = 11

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 352775

Right, to heck with that. It seems to be doing wounds in addition to hits, so I'm just going to murder it before it does too much damage. '1d10+2'
"Quickly, help miss Seas and mister Chip!"

Roll #1 1 + 2 = 3


Heal Summer NOW!

Roll #1 1 + 2 = 3

Chip(DD knght) 352777

Whhuu… wha??
I open my eyes, am I still alive? Can I stand up?

Roll #1 4 = 4


I grab a seashell out of my bag and crush it against the thing's eye.
Touch of Death.

Roll #1 1 = 1

Light Heart [Warlord] 352780

Shoot that thing where it hurts! Cheap Shot! '1d10'

"Miss Rosemary, please tend to mister Chip." '1d10'

Roll #1 10 = 10 / Roll #2 3 = 3

Emrille [Gunslinger] 352781

"Oh for fuck's sake…"
Fly up! Fight the current!

Roll #1 1 = 1


Also, try to help the kid up.

Roll #1 9 = 9

Felfire [Necromancer] 352786

As in, Summer.

Summer Seas [Cleric] 352787

I- I gotta get up and heal!

Roll #1 8 = 8

Summer Seas [Cleric] 352788


Wf+6 352826

Neither of them seems to be doing much good, but one shadow gets pretty scratched up.

You stand at the gateway to oblivion. Death calls your name. As you watch this beast gore you to death with its horrible claws, you can only stop to think about how beautiful a creature of the night it is.

0 wounds left.

With a brilliant light, you shock your daughter, burning her, as the chimera slashes into your flank, bringing you closer to death.

Fortunately, you are ignored in the onslaught.

As you close, it bats you out of the way and bites your neck repeatedly.

You frantically take shots at eyes, mouth, giblets, neck, and all the traditional weak spots. They ping harmlessly off scales.

Rosemary is gored, going helpless.

You think the skies are your ally? This thing was born in them. Molded by them. Okay enough Bane references, it snatches you out of the air, and breaks you over its knee. You didn't even know a Chimera could do that.

You pull a Daring Do and grab Spring's rope, swinging down like some sort of archeologist and pull Summer to her feet.

Emrille: 0/5 hits, 3/5 wounds
Light Heart: 5/5 hits, 4/5 wounds
>Rosemary: 0/2 hits, 2/5 wounds
Summer Seas: 0/5 hits, 3/5 wounds
Spring Water: 0/5 hits, 3/5 wounds
Curry: 0/5 hits, 0/5 wounds DEATH IMMINENT
Seekkill: 0/5 hits, 3/5 wounds
Chip: 0/7 hits 1/5 wounds

The room, barely lit except for the slightest resistance of Chip's candle, now splayed out on the floor, melting away, is bathed in moonlight. The brilliant, blue-white light absorbs into each of you, and you slowly stand, as the Chimera cowers before the light. The beast flees in the presence of the symbol of the moon, out of what appears to be the door to a cage.

Looks like the slimy metal you were fighting in was this thing's kennel.

Everyone is fully healed. Combat ends.

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 352838

I'll blink for a moment.
"Well, ah, that was quite unexpected."
I'll shakily get to my hooves.
"Mister Chip, are you well? And you others? Miss Seas, are you alright?"

Chip(DD knight) 352840

Stand up!
>inb4 a >1

Roll #1 7 = 7

Spring Water [Charlatan] 352842

I sigh and hug Summer
"Thank you sweetie…"

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 352844

I look around. Who is down here and who is still up above?

Felfire [Necromancer] 352845

Do I still have the Chimera's shadow with me?
Bring him out of the pit, have him help the other two out of it.

Wf+6 352847

Chimeras can't climb rope. He can't fly, just glide.

Emrille [Gunslinger] 352848

I get up on shaky legs.
"I hate this Temple already…"
Can I fly up against the current?

Roll #1 1 = 1

Wf+6 352849

Everyone is down. Everyone fell except Felfire who came down the rope.

Borders Skewed [Mage] 352850

What's going on oh god fuck I hate oversleeping

Chip(DD knight) 352851

"I'm fine."

I look up.
"GRRR!! Damnit its my fault!

Summer Seas [Cleric] 352852

I pant heavily, exhausted from the prayer.

I return her hug.

Wf+6 352853


You attempt to resist the current and collapse on your face.

Felfire [Necromancer] 352855

So now I'm reunited with the shadows. Cool. RIDE THE MANTICORE'S SHADOW!

Light Heart [Warlord] 352858

I give miss Rosemary a hug. She probably could use some comfort.


Does that Cursed Arrow I hit the Chimera with let me feel where it has gone?

Roll #1 2 = 2

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 352860

"Come on now, mister Chip, don't beat yourself up over it. This place is turning out a lot more dangerous than I'd expected!"

Wf+6 352861

Let's just say you were able to blink into the temple even after the water filled the staircase.

Mocking Wark is there at the entrance, in Curry's room.

"Looks like yer a bit late for the party, ya winking cauliflower."

Emrille [Gunslinger] 352863

I rub my muzzle.
"Ow for fuc-"
Let out an irritated groan and look up.
"Felfire! Do something about that vent that's blowing the air down or whatever it is!"

Wf+6 352867

A horse riding a chimera? Ridiculous.

And it's a chimera stop saying manticore.


She sighs in relief and returns the hug.

Chip(DD knight) 352870

Look at the symbol that drives away the creature.
What is it, can I touch it?
"my my…"

"It is, and I'm not getting a di…"

I then scratch my head.
"Look, perhaps I am a bit stressed. I still cant believe everyone followed me down here."

Roll #1 10 = 10

Felfire [Necromancer] 352871

Ooooh a chimera.
I was so confused.
If I tikle the mane of the lion can I make it roar?

Turn to Summer.
"Hey kid, want a ride?"

Wf+6 352872

It has faded with the prayer.

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 352873

"Light more candles. Seek monster. Kill monster."

Emrille [Gunslinger] 352875

"I didn't follow you, I got blown down by the air. That's why this is a trap."

Spring Water [Charlatan] 352876

Wf+6 352878

You're tickling the mane of Fervored Freedom.

Borders Skewed [Mage] 352879

"Terribly sorry, yes."

Straighten myself up and generally appear ready.

Summer Seas [Cleric] 352880

I look up at her curiously, eyed widening as I see the shadow of the chimera.
"Uh… is that… can it even be ridden?"
I tilt my head in confusion.

Felfire [Necromancer] 352881

Roll my eyes.
"Still safer than walking, you know."

Wf+6 352882

"They took a right down below. Mind the traps."

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 352883

I'll chuckle.
"Well, we didn't exactly follow by choice. It seems that trap managed to get all of us, one way or the other. Still! We managed to drive off that beastie, and live to laugh about it! A good fight in my books."

Felfire [Necromancer] 352885

I bet he loves it.
"Well I'm doing it! But looks like your momma doesn't want~"

Light Heart [Warlord] 352886

"We will get out of here alive, miss Rosemary. Do not worry."
I release her and give her a quick kiss on the cheek

"I beg to differ. Now, how do we go about moving on exactly?"

Emrille [Gunslinger] 352888

"We need to get rid of whatever is blowing the current down. I can't fly up like this."

Chip(DD knight) 352889

My eyes widen…

"Curry, perhaps the lunites are the answer to this… I mean their faith to this… Luna…. might be the answer."

I then put a paw on my jaw.
"Well I think, just a guess."

Give him a candle.
"Why didnt you guys brought some source of light." I let out a tired breath.

Summer Seas [Cleric] 352890

I turn to Spring.
"…can I? Pleeease?"

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 352891

"Well, we could follow the beast through the cage exit, and possibly bypass any traps. Or we can climb back up and out, and see if we can't make it the rest of the way across the floor."

Spring Water [Charlatan] 352893

I shake my head
"I don't trust it, honey. I'm sorry. Just hop on my back instead!"


Quickly go down, then.

And look for traps just in case.

Roll #1 2 = 2

Chip(DD knight) 352895

I shake Curry.
"Did you hear me, perhaps Summer and Spring are the answer."

Felfire [Necromancer] 352896

"Hey it's not a saveage beast! Fervored is controlling it!"

Seance on Fervored.
"Honey, tell them!"


I light the candle off the other burning one and stick it out of the cage.
Do I spot any traps or monsters or trappy monsters?

Roll #1 1 = 1

Light Heart [Warlord] 352899

I run a hoof through my mane to straighten it
"What an unpleasant choice."

"Mister Chip may be right. What if the temple reacts to divine Lunite magic?"

Wf+6 352901

You hear a room full of terrible roars and decide to slowly pull the candle back inside.

Summer Seas [Cleric] 352902

"Just this once? I wanna try…"

"Huh? The temple reacts to divine magic?"

Emrille [Gunslinger] 352904

"That would save us a lot of trouble. Let's just get out of this put, okay?"

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 352905

"Maybe we go up. Not out."

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 352906

"Well, it's certainly a possibility."
I'll turn to Summer.
"Perhaps you and your mother are the keys in more than one way. Do you still have that moonstone?"

Wf+6 352907

"I am."

The Chimera bows.

You manage to get into the corridor and trip a tripwire trap. Roll agility to save.

Wf+6 352909

It exploded earlier.

Light Heart [Warlord] 352912

"It is a possibility, is it not?"

"Very well."

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 352915


Spring Water [Charlatan] 352916

I sigh
"Fine… just be careful… please."

Summer Seas [Cleric] 352917

I jump back in shock as the shadow speaks.
"Bwah! Y- You can talk?!"



Roll #1 5 = 5

Chip(DD knight) 352920

"This…. house of*snicker* prayer may be built to be hostile to those who are not loyal to their faith. The traps will trigger only if there is no one praying to their god or something."

"It talks, what??"

Felfire [Necromancer] 352921

Roll my eyes once more.
I'm doing that a lot lately.
"He's Fervored.
I told you about him! He's my sweetie!"
Smile at her and offer her a hoof to climb up.

Felfire [Necromancer] 352922

"Chip, it's Fervored!"

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 352923

I'll shoot a glance at Chip.
Well, it seems they're already showing their colors…

Wf+6 352924

"This is just a form I an inhabiting."

You get pounded by water from a hole in the ceiling. You get waterlogged, but manage to finally work your way to your feet.

[/b]Everyone else[/b]
Water starts to trickle into the chamber from the hallway above…

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 352925

I poke the talking shadow with a claw.
"Talks like pony. Maybe Seekkill should learn shadows."

"We need out of hole. Now."

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 352926

I'll look up.
"I'm not the only one who sees water, am I?"

Summer Seas [Cleric] 352927

I look at him curiously.

"Thank you!"
I give her a quick hug, then take Felfire's hoof and climb on top of him.
"Um… so mister Fervored, you're in all the shadows miss Feelfear, um…"
I do gestures with my hooves trying to act out raising a shadow.
"…brings to life?"

Light Heart [Warlord] 352928

I nod
"Yes. And I am certainly no Lunite myself."

I look up
"… If it isn't too much of a bother, could we please make our way out of this dreadful please swiftly?"

Felfire [Necromancer] 352929

Point at the rope.

Emrille [Gunslinger] 352931



Roll #1 8 = 8

Wf+6 352933

You're out.

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 352934

I climb/fly out of the hole.
Did the thing blowing air get disabled? I'll be back in a bit.

Wf+6 352937

Corollary: You're out, and you see Borders looking sheepish by a flow of water coming out of the ceiling.

It did not.


I sigh and try to climb up

Roll #1 5 = 5

Chip(DD knight) 352939

"Oh… I just mistook you as the… nevermind."

I look at Curry as he stares at me.

I then scratch my head.
"Look, all I am just saying is that perhaps there are wards here in this place that will react only to the two Lunites presence."

Wf+6 352940

You struggle and finally get out after exhausting yourself. The water is really coming steadily now…

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 352941

I'll give Spring a boost with TK. '1d10'

Roll #1 2 = 2

Emrille [Gunslinger] 352943

So look at that vent or whatever.
Any way to disable or block it?

"What did you do you idiot?"


Sigh and have the Chimera move us closer to the rope.
"Kid, this is our stop. End of the ride."

Climb outside with the kid.

Roll #1 1 = 1

Light Heart [Warlord] 352945

"Please do calm down, miss Emrille. There is no need to get upset."
I fly up '1d10'
Rosemary can climb up '1d10'

Roll #1 9 = 9 / Roll #2 5 = 5

Wf+6 352948

You can't bring yourself to part with the chimera.

You'd say it was because of the airflow, but between just you and me, Felfire? We both know you're getting addicted to riding him bareback.

You both make it, though she's winded at the top.

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 352949

Oh to hell with it. I'm not patient enough for this. Improved TK, everyone out of the hole. '1d10'

Roll #1 6 = 6

Chip(DD knight) 352950

I just raise my hand.
"Ugghhh… "
I then try to climb up the rope provided by the pone's.

Roll #1 5 = 5

Summer Seas [Cleric] 352952

"Oh. Aw…"
I climb up the rope then.

Roll #1 8 = 8

Felfire [Necromancer] 352955

Does this mean the chimera is up too?

Borders Skewed [Mage] 352958

"Nothing of note."

Spring Water [Charlatan] 352959

I smile as and pick her up, then put her on my back again

Wf+6 352962

Emrille [Gunslinger] 352965

"You triggered a trap!"

Felfire [Necromancer] 352969

And I will squee in joy.
Slowly clap at him from the back of my chimera-shadow.
"Kid, the train is coming around for another ride!"
Grin at her.

Chip(DD knight) 352971

"Guuuhh.." I just breath out.
Go to the passage where I left off and follow it until I go to the end, all the while watching out for traps.


Roll #1 6 + 2 = 8

Wf+6 352973

Yes. I did post in the wrong thread.

Wf+6 352976

You spot all of the traps as you trigger them all the way to the end.

Make six saves.



Search ahead for more traps with Far Sight.

Roll #1 2 = 2

Wf+6 352979

You manage to see Chip setting off six traps

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 352980

And I'm on cooldown so I can't save him.

Chip(DD knight) 352981

No nope of course not, I stop and avoid them first!
Is it still reversible or not?


Displace him backwards!

Roll #1 4 + 2 = 6

Felfire [Necromancer] 352985

>not wink
Do you even mage?

Borders Skewed [Mage] 352987

Wink is self only

Spring Water [Charlatan] 352988

I have to reply quick okay!?

"She'll be fine on my back."

Chip(DD knight) 352992

Ah damn.

Roll #1 2, 5, 8, 7, 7, 5 = 34

Wf+6 352994


Roll #1 4 = 4

Wf+6 352997

Borders moves you back before you can kill yourself on all the traps you see.

You only see the first and you don't trigger it, in that case.

You notice a thin film across the hall ahead.

Summer Seas [Cleric] 353000

"Oh, cool!"

"Aww… but it's fun! You're so high up!"

Chip(DD knight) 353007

I frown.
"Thanks Border."

Emrille [Gunslinger] 353014

"Ugh… are there any more traps after these ones? Can we just shoot the Hydra already?"

Chip(DD knight) 353017

"You are…. ugghh.."

Inspect this thin film on the hallway. Is it some sort of bubble?

Roll #1 7 + 2 = 9


Inspect it

Roll #1 1 = 1

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 353024

"Oh, there's certainly more. After all, we're only mostly down the first hallway!"
Curse that blasted teacher of mine! You could have at least told me where the traps were. And how did that old bat get past them anyway? It's not like she could fly!
"Though… miss Emrille, perhaps you could fly over the rest of the hallway with a light, so that mister Chip may focus on his feet?"

Summer Seas [Cleric] 353026

"How many hallways are there?…"
I shiver.

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 353028

"More traps?"

Emrille [Gunslinger] 353030

"Fly over there and risk triggering traps that are not tripwires and the sort? Hah, no way."

Wf+6 353032

Looks like it.

You blunder straight through it, popping it.

The entire party fills a chill as a Greater Reaper materializes before them, brandishing its terrible scythe. It feels as though the life begins draining out of the room.



Displace a stack of bolts into its head!

Roll #1 7 + 2 = 9

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 353036

"Well, let's see… after this, there's supposed to be an open room, similar to the one we just came from. No stairs, however. Should be something in there, with this many traps, though."
"Miss Heart, what did you do?"
And I'll lift my trident back to a ready position, and launch it at the creature. '1d10+2'

Roll #1 3 + 2 = 5

Chip(DD knight) 353037

"I dont know…" I just let it trail off.
"Ask Curry."

I just let out a tired gasp.
"Where do you Lunites get these creatures??"
ready my cudgel to defend the others.


Jump off the chimera and send both it and the other shadow at the reaper.

Roll #1 4, 6 = 10

Spring Water [Charlatan] 353040

Quickly back off with Summer on my back

Chip(DD knight) 353042

Forgot my roll to attack

Roll #1 7 = 7


I hit it with a Cursed Arrow.

Roll #1 1 + 2 = 3

Chip(DD knight) 353045

"You tell me, its your temple!" I snorted at Spring.

Emrille [Gunslinger] 353046

Fire shot at it reflexively!

Roll #1 9 + 2 = 11

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 353047

"I don't know!"
"I dare say it is not, miss Spring! But I'm also at a loss!"

Light Heart [Warlord] 353048

Cheap Shot on the scythe!

Summer Seas [Cleric] 353049

"Why… w- what even is that!"

"We've never even been here before!"

Felfire [Necromancer] 353051

Also, shout at the reaper.
While waving my own scythe around.

Wf+6 353284

The terrible, miasmaic biped gives a horrifying shriek and begins to charge.

Make two rolls. One to resist terrify, one to outrun.


Roll #1 3 + 2 = 5 / Roll #2 1 - 1 = 0

Wf+6 353287

Well, the reaper is obviously stationary, so no need to escape it in that case. Make one roll only.

Chip(DD knight) 353289


Roll #1 4, 6 = 10

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 353290


Roll #1 7, 1 = 8


Oh dear.

Roll #1 3 = 3

Light Heart [Warlord] 353294

Hasty retreat! '1d10'

Roll #1 7 = 7

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 353295

And here we go. '2d10'

Roll #1 10, 7 = 17


Run run run! I have Summer on my back!

Roll #1 10 = 10

Summer Seas [Cleric] 353297

What a wimp!

Roll #1 9 = 9

Emrille [Gunslinger] 353298

Come on Emrille, if you can shoot it you can deal with it!

Roll #1 9 = 9

Felfire [Necromancer] 353299

Release the pony shadow.
Raise his own.

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

Felfire [Necromancer] 353300

If I can take that action after failing the resist roll.

Roll #1 10 = 10

Wf+6 353305

You all collapse in terror.

Felfire releases a minion just in time to attempt to raise the shadow of an illusion, which we all know casts no shadow.

All of these guys know what's up. What the fuck would a Greater Reaper be doing in a Lunar Temple?

In fact, Summer laughs it off as the illusion fizzles out into nothingness. Presumably the idea was to get you to accidentally retreat over traps and set them off.

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 353309

I sit down and start laughing.

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 353311

"It seems some of these traps are more tricks than trouble, mister Chip!"

Felfire [Necromancer] 353312

Oh great. An illusion.
But unless it is in our brain, anything that can be seen casts a shadow.
Get up.
Raise the shadow of a flier.
Mount my chimera once more.
Never talk about this with anypony. Ever.

Chip(DD knight) 353315

"GET IT OFF ME GET IT OFF ME!!" I cower down the floor.

Emrille [Gunslinger] 353317

Release a few breaths.
"Okay I'll admit it, that was scary at first. At first."

Summer Seas [Cleric] 353318

Rolling to resist laughing even harder at the people who got terrified '1d10'

"Mister Chip! It's just an illusion! Why would a reaper be in a Lunar Temple?"

Roll #1 10 = 10

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 353319

I'll give a small chuckle.
"Be calm, mister Chip. It seems it was but an illusion."

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 353320

I start laughing even harder.

Chip(DD knight) 353321

Fighting the illusion

Roll #1 3 = 3

Spring Water [Charlatan] 353322

I sigh, completely unamused
"I nearly had a heart attack…"

Wf+6 353323

It's already gone! You attack the darkness.


"W-well, I thought it was suspicious that this place had a reaper…"

Rolling to look perfectly calm

Roll #1 5 = 5

Chip(DD knight) 353325

"Wha… what?"
I then stand myself straight trying to pretend nothing happened.

Roll #1 9 = 9

Light Heart [Warlord] 353326

"Well… that was rather silly I suppose."

I frown at her
"Tell me about it, miss Spring."

Wf+6 353327

Half of your face is frozen in terror. The other looks too cool for school.

Summer Seas [Cleric] 353328

"Did you get scared too miss Feelfear?"

"But it was just an illusion momma! Plain as day!"

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 353330

"Well, it's good that that was just an illusion, mister Chip. I'm not too fond of the idea of facing death face to skull just yet."

Felfire [Necromancer] 353331

"Let's say I had a bad memory of when I was a filly."

Emrille [Gunslinger] 353332

I chuckle.
"I was just about to turn around and leg it from here."

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 353334

I poke him
"Brave dog find more traps."


Rolling to show the the correct side of my fast

"Oh-oh, so you weren't scared, too? I'm impressed!"

Roll #1 2 = 2


>of my face

Roll #1 5 = 5

Chip(DD knight) 353341

I just frown.
Alright, I already hate this place now I am getting a bit mad at it. Lunites sure are wily S.o.a.B
Well they are pony worshippers, I doubt any ponies would like to have dogs as their mothers..

Alright back to work.
Walk past the bubble/fear trap and look for more traps. Take it slowly now.

Roll #1 7 + 2 = 9

Wf+6 353347

You're about to take another step when you notice the light of your candle is glaring off the floor.

It's… smooth and shiny. Like glass.

Summer Seas [Cleric] 353350

"Did you find anything mister Chip?"

Spring Water [Charlatan] 353353

Why did I have to be born to a family of Lunites…
"This temple is starting to stress me out…"

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 353356

"Oh, it's just beginning, miss Spring! But by the end of it, it should be well worth the trouble."

Summer Seas [Cleric] 353357

"It is?… Do you wanna stop and take a rest momma?"

Emrille [Gunslinger] 353358

"You're not the only one. I'm not going through all this again to get to the treasury, so unless we find a trapless shortcut, the Library will have to do."

Chip(DD knight) 353360

I scratch my head.
Smell whatever this shiny stuff is on the floor but dont touch it.

"You tell me." I look at her.
"But I got to tell that you Lunites sure do love to kill or kick out anyone that tresspass your sacred sites." I chuckle.

Spring Water [Charlatan] 353362

"I'll manage sweetie… but I don't think I'll be visiting another temple any time soon."


Wf+6 353363

Smells like the rest of the temple. Salty.

Light Heart [Warlord] 353366

I chuckle
"This is why I don't worship. A rather unprofitable occupation in my eyes."

Summer Seas [Cleric] 353367

"Will have to do for what?"

I wrap my hooves around her neck in a hug.


Far sight out to look past us again!

Roll #1 8 = 8

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 353369

"Well, mister Chip, this being the last might have something to do with that. If any other temples were similarly protected in the ancient days, it seems it didn't do them much good when the Celestials came in to loot them."

Wf+6 353370

You see the end of the hallway. That's a free roll.

Emrille [Gunslinger] 353372

"For reward."

Chip(DD knight) 353373

Touch the shiny stuff with my paw.

Wf+6 353375

Nothing immediately sinister…

It does feel very slippery, though.

Spring Water [Charlatan] 353379

I smile, happy to have her closeby, and wait for Chip to clear the way

Chip(DD knight) 353383

"So ponies graverob their own stuff. Well not that I wont do it myself, still better safe than sorry."
"Also, the floor get slippery beyond this point." I pointed out.

Are there sand in the area if not find some and throw it on the slippery floor to create some sort of unslippery platform(if possible).

Roll #1 6 = 6

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 353386

"It's not so much the graverobbing that rankled, mister Chip, but the fact it was done by ponies who, for the most part, were considered a sister church. And since they haven't rebuilt a single one, it shows they've no sign of making amends for it."


From where I am standing can I see anything that would make it dangerous to fly over the slippery patch of floor he is talking about?

Roll #1 2 = 2

Wf+6 353390

No sand here. Only stone.

You can't see anything.

Summer Seas [Cleric] 353391

Can I see anything?

Roll #1 9 = 9

Borders Skewed [Mage] 353394

Can I use my old roll to farsight the slippery floor?

Chip(DD knight) 353397

I think for a moment, looks like these celestials are a much bigger A.holes than the Lunites.
"Tell me, what wrong does the Lunites done to the celestials to warrant such actions."

Welp, lets test this out.
Walk on all my fours very 'carefully.' on the slippery floor and see how slippery it is.

Felfire [Necromancer] 353398

Can my Chimera shadow glide with me on top past the slippery floor?
Just theoretically, I mean.

Chip(DD knight) 353399

also rolling just in case.
>inb4 a >1

Roll #1 1 + 2 = 3

Tasia [Paladin] 353401

since I'm on the ship… look out to find where that copperwinged pony went, she said something about going to find dresses? '1d10'

Roll #1 3 = 3

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 353406

"Well, that's quite old history. Nearly nine centuries ago, Luna, the Moon Princess, was consumed by jealousy over how her sister, Celestia the Sun Princess, was regarded so highly. Ponies never stayed awake for her nights, despite all she had done, and the boon she gave to navigators and seafarers was largely ignored. So, like anyone who had been spurned for hundreds of years, she went mad, and laid waste to a fair swath of countryside. Celestia was forced to imprison her in the moon, and her temples were summarily overrun by monsters or sacked. Sometimes both."

Emrille [Gunslinger] 353410

I glance at Spring and Summer.

Chip(DD knight) 353412

"Oh… I see."
I mused for a moment.

"A mad… God?"

Summer Seas [Cleric] 353414

I frown and droop my head on Spring's back, folding down my ears as well.

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 353416

"She wasn't always that way. The night sky was her canvas, and she its artist. As I said, centuries of jealousy can weigh upon the mind. Even on that of a Princess."

Wf+6 353417

You see a slippery floor.

You see a slippery floor.

You slide across the floor and collapse across another tripwire.

Roll for how bad it goes.

The hallway isn't big enough for it to spread its wings.

You get a lead that takes you to the Chapel of Deals.

Spring Water [Charlatan] 353419

"And now anypony that still worships her is almost considered wicked… because of that Nightmare."
I sigh

Tasia [Paladin] 353421

how… odd. Look for her is she around? or- or maybe ask if she's been through here if she isn't! '1d10'

Roll #1 4 = 4

Chip(DD knight) 353423

I think for a moment.
"Well I do know how to get jeolous from time to time so I can relate to thaaaAAAA!!!"

"Not again!!" I grit my teeth.

Roll #1 1 = 1

Emrille [Gunslinger] 353425

"I don't know about you sugar, but that sounds a pretty important part of the deal with her."

Borders Skewed [Mage] 353426

"Foolish, aren't they? Had some sunners knock on my door before. I just had them teleported away."

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 353429

I'll nod.
"Indeed. After that Darkest Night, many formerly peaceful communities turned against the Lunar Priests that still operated according to the tenets of their original mission, and those that weren't run out were likely killed on sight."
And then I see Chip sliding away, since he's certainly making some noise.
Can I rescue him with magic? '1d10'

Roll #1 10 = 10

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 353430

I give an impressed whistle.

Borders Skewed [Mage] 353433

Damn it!

Can I Wink him back?

Spring Water [Charlatan] 353439

"Ponies are just ignorant, Emrille. And they can say the stupidest things about stuff they don't know about…"

Emrille [Gunslinger] 353442

"Hey, you can believe in her and everything, just don't follow the going mad example, okay?"

Wf+6 353443

You can't gather much information, but one of the clerks remembers seeing a bronze-winged pegasus. He mentions she was with a filly that was hunting a hydra.

As soon as the wire trips, you find yourself slammed to the ground and you can't move.

Curry drags Chip out with telekinesis.

He's too far away.

Felfire [Necromancer] 353444

"Yeah. I mean, look at me. I say I worship Grogar and suddenly ponies run scared! I'm not going to blow them up just like that!"

Summer Seas [Cleric] 353446

I sadly nod.
"Even now some ponies still don't like Luna… back home, some ponies would always come by and talk to my momma… she always sent me outside to play, but I could hear the yelling."

Tasia [Paladin] 353448

"Hunting a WHAT!? D-Do you know where they went?"
if he doesn't then ask around as to where this foolhardy pony went WITH A FILLY '1d10'

Roll #1 9 = 9

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 353449

I'll raise an eyebrow fairly high at that.
"Well, Grogar has pretty much always been considered an evil deity, miss Felfire, and as such any who follow him. However, from what I've seen you're not… completely evil, so I suppose you should be alright. For now. Unless you do something truly terrible."

Chip(DD knight) 353452

I then look at Curry.
"Thanks for pulling me out there."
Try to stand up.

Roll #1 3 = 3


Heal Chip!

I give her a disturbed look

"Grogar isn't exactly known for his kindness…"

I close my eyes and sigh as she mentions that

Roll #1 10 + 2 = 12

Wf+6 353455

He shrugs. "I didn't think they were serious. They said they were hunting a hydra. I gave her a lollipop instead of a weapon. Fillies shouldn't fight hydras."

He feels better.

Summer got you up.

Borders Skewed [Mage] 353458

"Well.. Grogar IS known for taking over an enslaving he mythical Kingdom of Tambelon, so there's a stigma to that."

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 353460

"No problem at all, mister Chip. Just glad I caught you in time before something terrible did."

Tasia [Paladin] 353461

"Hydra or not I need to look after the wellbeing of those pilgrims! "
rub my forehead
"Ok.. ok can you tell me at least where they went? Point me the direction they were going in?"

Summer Seas [Cleric] 353462

I hug Spring a bit tighter.
"And when I went back inside the place was always a mess… like they just tossed everything around…"

Chip(DD knight) 353464

I nod to Spring.

Time to work.
Using my engineering skills. I get some of the bricks that are lying around and create some stepping stones on the slippery floor for ponies to pass. Make sure it is secure.

>RNG pls


Roll #1 10 + 2 = 12

Felfire [Necromancer] 353467

Grumble a bit.
"Well without Grogar and the art he gifted us I'd not be here today.
Most of the ponies in this room wouldn't, actually…"

Wf+6 353469

"Last I saw, they were headed out to the shore. That's the best lead I've got. I didn't stalk them or anything."

Well, with a grunt you jerk some bricks out of the wall, and you set some stones on it, but that just makes a slippery stone path.

So instead you start throwing bricks at the floor like a brickbarian. It shatters, and is possible to walk across safely, though probably painfully.

Spring Water [Charlatan] 353470

I roll my eyes
"It's not even proven that resurrection was gifted by Grogar."

"They were bad ponies, sweetie…"

Borders Skewed [Mage] 353471

"Whoever told you Necromancy was Grogar's?"

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 353472

"That's why I said 'not completely,' miss Felfire. You have done me no personal wrong, so I don't feel the need to be harsh with you. Let's hope I never do."

Tasia [Paladin] 353474

"Thank you!"
run out there and try to find them! look for them! are there any tracks anywhere?
"Why couldn't I have learned anything about tracking!?" '1d10'

Roll #1 1 = 1

Chip(DD knight) 353475

Pain is part of the job.
Walk on the safe pathway pass the slippery floor and search for more traps.

Also, what is that thing that fell on me when I trip a wire? Is it a big slab of rock or something?

Roll #1 8 + 2 = 10

Felfire [Necromancer] 353476

"The dean of a Grogar sect I've met in autumnsreach.
Dead a few centuries ago."
"Might have been a combined effort!"
"As long as you don't deny me those books, big guy."

Wf+6 353477

You make it to the beach just in time to see that handsome pirate traipsing back into town.

So torn~.

Roll to maintain your course.

Tasia [Paladin] 353480


Roll #1 7 = 7

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 353481

I start scratching designs into the stone floor with a claw while waiting and listening to the others.
'1d10' to see if they look any good.

Roll #1 6 = 6

Wf+6 353482

Nothing at all fell on you, which is odd.

You can't see anything ahead except a broken tripwire. At the very edge of your vision, you think you make out… something. Something tells you don't want to make it out.

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 353483

"Those books are miss Seas's, as I said, so you'd have to take it up with her. However, if we manage to finish up before the tide goes out, you should have plenty of time to roost there for the night."

Wf+6 353484

You scratch a few runes from the temple on your island into the floor.

You control yourself.

Tasia [Paladin] 353486




Roll #1 10 = 10

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 353488

"See any traps, dog?"

Felfire [Necromancer] 353490

"At this pace?"
"Suuuuure I will…"
Kick back and relax on top of my shadow chimera, slowly petting its mane.

Chip(DD knight) 353491

I look away.
"Not yet Seek."

I then shout.
"Border, there is something far down there. What do your pony eyes see?"

Spring Water [Charlatan] 353493

"I very much doubt so."

"I wonder how many books there will be… hopefully they'll still be in a reasonable state."

Emrille [Gunslinger] 353495

"Yeah, I hope that too."

Felfire [Necromancer] 353496

"So… It was all a necromancer's doing?"
Giggle a bit.

Borders Skewed [Mage] 353500

"Ah, so you'd believe a Conpony if he SWORE he wasn't lying? And I'd like those books very much."

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 353501

"Well, their unique situation has kept them safe from the tide, and up until my teacher returned the last one they were still in useable condition. Perhaps something about the cave preserved them? Or perhaps the former keepers busied themselves with rewriting the tomes instead of clearing out the hydra."

Wf+6 353503

Your amazing tracking skills lead you down the beach. There aren't hoof-prints, but you follow a hunch.

As you continue down along the shore, you notice something very odd. There's a… flock?… of red lillies migrating across the surface of the water back toward the docks. You look back to their point of origin, and you see a big pack of them perched on the top of carved stone… roof? Out at sea. The rest of the structure seems submerged.

…They didn't go in there, did they?

Chip(DD knight) 353505

"Border, a little help?"

Felfire [Necromancer] 353506

"Necromancy books? Because those are the only ones I will care about.
And by how you talk, it's obvious you don't understand how even something as basic as communing works."



Farsight down

Roll #1 10 = 10

Wf+6 353514

You spot three rather obvious traps: a loose brick, another tripwire, and some sort of… vent.

The fourth one is the worst, though: there appears to be some kind of… serpent woman statue. Roll a will save.

Tasia [Paladin] 353516

I hope not…

but go in and find out anyways. Rolling to navigate through there '1d10'

Roll #1 3 = 3


"This.. this isn't good!"

Roll #1 7 = 7

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 353520

"What is it?"

Emrille [Gunslinger] 353521

"What did you see?"

Felfire [Necromancer] 353522

Laugh wholeheartedly.
"When it is?"

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 353525


Wf+6 353526

You swim out to the temple roof.

…Looks like, down in the submerged depths of the stairs, there's a door. It opens inward… if you can swim down there, you can probably open it.

You resist it, and turn your eyes away from it immediately.

Chip(DD knight) 353527

"Are you alright?" I look at Border


"Three rather obvious traps: a loose brick, another tripwire, and some sort of… vent.

The fourth one is the worst, though: there appears to be some kind of… serpent woman statue."

"Or Serpent Mare? Regardless, if any of you like females, I suggest blindfolding yourselves. don't look at it."

Roll #1 2 = 2

Felfire [Necromancer] 353533

"Well depends doc.
Is it alive or is it dead? Decaying? Exposed organs? Dying?"

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 353534

"Well we can't bloody blindfold ourselves, Bounder, if we expect to get past the other traps. What's so special about that statue?"

Chip(DD knight) 353535

"Does she look hot?"

Emrille [Gunslinger] 353536

I chuckle.
"You sure about that last part?"

Summer Seas [Cleric] 353537

"Blindfold? Why do we need blindfolds?"

Spring Water [Charlatan] 353538

"Don't tell me…"

Felfire [Necromancer] 353539

"Only if you like mares, kid."

Emrille [Gunslinger] 353542

"Don't tell you… what exactly?"

Tasia [Paladin] 353543

ugh, use my wings to help me swim!


Roll #1 8 = 8

Summer Seas [Cleric] 353545

"I like mares… do I have to blindfold myself too?"

Borders Skewed [Mage] 353546

"It'll probably control your minds, or otherwise warp your will through a meme-based mechanism. Just don't look at it, and we'll be fine. Let the um, people who like males lead for now. And yes, it's hot. Stunningly so. I could barely save myself."

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 353548

"Why not just use the mirror we left in the other room?"

Light Heart [Warlord] 353549

I chuckle
"My my, I believe miss Rosemary and I would be wise to avert our gazes then."

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 353550

"Seekkill only like gryphon feem-ales. Seekkill safe?"

Felfire [Necromancer] 353551

"You might want to.
Better safe than sorry, no?
Come up here, I have a solution."

Emrille [Gunslinger] 353553

"Damn… why does the hot one have to be a trap?"

Chip(DD knight) 353554

"Then count me out, but you still have to point out the traps that is laid out so the others wont get caught on it."

"Hey thats an idea."

Spring Water [Charlatan] 353556


"Summer… she means liking mares."
I whisper in her ear

Wf+6 353557

She just blushes.

"I don't like snakes… Not like you."

Borders Skewed [Mage] 353560

"It.. hmm. Lateral inversion may dissipate the effect, or it may be completely useless. I was thinking of just using my lenses and dirtying them so I can't see properly, but that might not work either."

Emrille [Gunslinger] 353563

"It didn't sound like nothing to me."

Light Heart [Warlord] 353564

"Still, better save then sorry, don't you think?"

Light Heart [Warlord] 353565

"Still, better safe than sorry, don't you think?"*

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 353568

"Well, Bounder, I've no idea what you just said, but I think it's worth a shot. Remember, we douse the lights until everyone is behind the mirror, otherwise they'll vanish."
And then I'll go fetch it.

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 353569

"Bighead Unicorn do that. Seekkill hit if not work."

Wf+6 353570

You propel yourself to the bottom and kick open the door with paladin strength! So fierce.

You barely manage to shut the door behind you against the flow of water.

There's a donkey in this room. The water has flowed down another flight of stairs in front of you.

"Another one? Oi."

Wf+6 353571

"If you say so."

Spring Water [Charlatan] 353572

"Well… there are stories about these kinds of things, you know."

Tasia [Paladin] 353575

"Oi yourself!"
look around '1d10'
"Did a pegasus with copper wings and a filly come by here?"

Roll #1 2 = 2

Emrille [Gunslinger] 353576

"You know I'm not too well versed on this whole Lunatic Moon Mythology thing."

Chip(DD knight) 353578

"So who do you think shall lead then if that is the case?"

Borders Skewed [Mage] 353579

"No, sorry, I don't think you are safe."

"ANYWAY, don't we have ANYONE here who doesn't like mares?"

Felfire [Necromancer] 353580

"I don't."

Wf+6 353581

He nods.

"That cranky shadow-meddler wandered off with the rest of their troupe. They went down the stairs, and took a right. Mind the traps down there, ya gilded songbird."

Tasia [Paladin] 353584

nod then head off in that direction, mumbling something about pilgrims and tourism

alright he said there were traps, keep an eye out for them! '1d10'

Roll #1 4 = 4

Chip(DD knight) 353586

"Not me."
I look around…..
"Spring, Summer, Lighheart possibly, Rose….. "


Spring Water [Charlatan] 353588

"Well I'm sure we don't need to worry…"

I stay quiet

Emrille [Gunslinger] 353590

"If you say so."

"I don't really want to risk the healers going in first."

Borders Skewed [Mage] 353591

"Right. Could you, uh, go down and make a safe route to the next room?"

Chip(DD knight) 353593

"Me too."
"Hey you like stallions right?"

Felfire [Necromancer] 353595

"So, recount me where the traps are."

Emrille [Gunslinger] 353597

I shrug with a grin but say nothing.

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 353598

"If I am any indication, mister Chip, she does not."

Wf+6 353601

Lucky for you there are no traps up to how far you can progress.

You reach a big pit that takes up the entirety of the hallway. On the other side, you can see the group holding up candles. You have the element of surprise: you're shrouded in dark. You see copper wings glimmer.

Borders Skewed [Mage] 353603

"Look out for a tripwire, a vent, and a loose brick. If you need me to see down there again, well… I'd rather not."

Emrille [Gunslinger] 353604

I roll my eyes.
"I definitely do not like you, that's for sure."

Tasia [Paladin] 353606

well! fly over there! '1d10'

Roll #1 4 = 4

Chip(DD knight) 353607

I give a comical grin.

Felfire [Necromancer] 353608

On topper of a shadow chimera, I might add.
"If this is getting me killed… You pay Terrebonne for me!"

Dismount Fervored.
Start walking slowly down the path with a candle in my hoof, and be aware of the traps I've been told about.
Pls don't make me roll!

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 353609

"You strike me to the quick, miss Emrille. I thought we were at least friendly rivals."

Light Heart [Warlord] 353610

I chuckle
"You are quite chaste, miss Emrille."

Wf+6 353611

The downdraft over the pit causes you to fall down inside, into the dark.

Did you bring a light? This is important.

Tasia [Paladin] 353614








Roll #1 6 = 6

Wf+6 353615

Okay, you manage to scramble up on the other side.

Emrille [Gunslinger] 353616

"You should be happy I even tolerate you after last time."

"There's a kid here, it's not polite to talk about this stuff."

Summer Seas [Cleric] 353617

"I'm not that young!…"
I pout.

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 353618

Am I hearing of this or am I too distracted by the goings on around me?

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 353621

Do I hear that? '1d10'
"You are compared to me, miss Seas."

Roll #1 6 = 6

Felfire [Necromancer] 353622

>with a candle in my hoof
And now the light will blow up in my face.

Tasia [Paladin] 353623

gasp uncontrollably and clutch my chest

well I caught up to them at least!

bounce over

"Miss Copper winged pilgrim! What are you and these other pilgrims doing down here!?"

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 353624


Roll #1 9 = 9

Emrille [Gunslinger] 353625

"You still have a year or two until you have to start to worry about it, kiddo."

Chip(DD knight) 353626

"But you are… young." I stare at Summer then look away.

Light Heart [Warlord] 353627

"You are quite right, yes. I shall refrain from saying anything more on the matter."

Felfire [Necromancer] 353628

Don't look back.

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 353629

I'll swing about and hold my trident aimed at her.
"Who goes there? And how did you find this place!?"

Wf+6 353630

Doesn't matter as of: >>353623

Make a will save against the statue. It's lower for you because >stallionlover


No, I don't like anything that's not undead.
No matter the shape.

Roll #1 9 = 9

Spring Water [Charlatan] 353633

I smile
"Maybe so, but still too young for this."

Tasia [Paladin] 353634

pull my blunderbuss at him

"Don't you dare, Pilgrim! Put your weapon away! I dont' mean you harm but I won't put a second thought if you charge me!"
"What, are you doing here!? This is not window shopping miss!"

Wf+6 353635

Well, you safely traverse to the other side of the statue while everyone else looks away.

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 353636

"You will answer me this. You come into my home, and then into this place, and you demand I step aside to let you do so? I ask you again, how did you find this place?"

Chip(DD knight) 353639

I raise my paws.
"Whoa calm down or else you will trigger some traps fool!"

Felfire [Necromancer] 353640

"Lady Tasia, this is a very dangerous place. We are trying to… Uh… HEARN OUR REDEMPTION!"
Okay, then look at this statue. From behind.
What's its shape, can I move it, knock it down or anything else?

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 353641

"Bravedog is right. Shut up."

Wf+6 353642

It's a statue made out of stone. It looks affixed to the floor.

Tasia [Paladin] 353645

"I'll give no such allowance t- "
give her a shocked look
"Wha- Why would you attempt this in the underbelly of Autumsreach!? Princess Celestia doesn't require such a drastic show of loyalty!"

Summer Seas [Cleric] 353647

"How old are you mister Curry?"

I pout.

"Is it safe to come across miss Feelfear?"
I shout over to her.

Felfire [Necromancer] 353648

Does it have a 'face'?

Borders Skewed [Mage] 353651

"Ah.. I am afraid that if you hurt anyone here, things will get complicated. Quite complicated. Please put that away."

Chip(DD knight) 353652

I hold Summers back.
"Stay little pony, you may get hurt."

Emrille [Gunslinger] 353653

I ruffle her mane.
"You are still mature for your age, don't worry."

Light Heart [Warlord] 353654

"Miss… Tasia? Is it? Please, this place is not quite safe. It would be advisable for you to calm down and lower your weapons."

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 353655

"A Celestial. I should have guessed."
I'll glare at the others.
"Got here a bit sooner than you'd hoped, I wager."

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 353657


Spring Water [Charlatan] 353658

She's on my back still
I glare at him as he approaches my daughter and I
"Don't touch us."

Wf+6 353659

It has a head. You can't see the face from here.

Chip(DD knight) 353661

I look at Curry in alarm then look back at this new comer.

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 353663

"Followers of the Sun Princess, and the reason there are a no such thing as Lunar Temples anymore."

Tasia [Paladin] 353664

"This isn't a safe place to begin with. You should return to the surface immediately! Armed or not, you pilgrims should not be risking yourselves down here. What are you looking to find anyways?"

Felfire [Necromancer] 353666

Raise my own shadow with Magenta in it.
Wrap it arond the head of the statue.
Magenta is asexual!

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 353668

"Kill them back."

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 353669

"You have not answered my question, Celestial. How did you find this place?"

Light Heart [Warlord] 353670

"I for one, did not inform any celestials about this place."

"I don't believe that is any of your concern, miss Tasia."

Emrille [Gunslinger] 353671

"It's a long story. We'll be fine, don't worry your little head."

Summer Seas [Cleric] 353673

"We have to be down here! I-"
I shut my mouth as I remember she's a Celestial.

Tasia [Paladin] 353676

"Nothing is hidden under Celestia's Great Light!"

Roll #1 4 = 4

Tasia [Paladin] 353679

glare at them
"You're not pilgrims at all are you?"

Borders Skewed [Mage] 353681

Keep watching her.

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 353682


Emrille [Gunslinger] 353683

"Who are you anyway?"

Wf+6 353684

Okay, but shadows aren't opaque, especially as candles approach.

Light Heart [Warlord] 353687

I move closer to Curry
"I propose we take her out."

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 353688

"That would only prove them right."
"My home was. Now how did you find it you stupid…"
Breathe deep, Curry.
"Answer me, Celestial, or I swear to your princess that I will kill you for coming here."

Felfire [Necromancer] 353692

Is there anything I can place in front of said statue to block its gaze?

Chip(DD knight) 353693

"I'm a diamond dog."

Tasia [Paladin] 353694


distraction shots! '2d10'

Roll #1 5, 9 = 14 / Roll #2 8 = 8

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 353699

Ha ha, we fightan now.

Roll #1 6 + 2 = 8

Chip(DD knight) 353700

Capture her.

Roll #1 9 = 9

Light Heart [Warlord] 353703

Cheap shot on her leg to cripple her

Wf+6 353707

She's down.

I seriously hope you're not planning to murder a shipmate in front of a kid.

Summer Seas [Cleric] 353708

"W- Wait! Stop fighting!"
I frantically wave my hooves to try and get their attention.

Roll #1 3 = 3

Tasia [Paladin] 353709


Roll #1 5 = 5

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 353711

I walk closer to her.
"Anyone hungry?"

Chip(DD knight) 353712

Tie her up with a rope, use some sick mathematical/engineering techniques on it(if possible).

Roll #1 2 + 2 = 4

Borders Skewed [Mage] 353713

Wink her weapons into my hoof!

Felfire [Necromancer] 353714


Also, yell to them.

Light Heart [Warlord] 353717

Of course not.

"Miss Tasia please, stop struggling. We are merely trying to ensure you do not set off any traps."

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 353718

I'll glare daggers at Felfire.
"She came into my home, into my shrine, and I did not let her in. That means she came in after. I want to know how, and who led her here."

Chip(DD knight) 353719

I look at Seekkill dumbfounded.
"Not me."

Emrille [Gunslinger] 353721

I facehoof.
"Seriously now…. we have bigger problems."
Walk over to where Felfire is, and keep looking at the ground.

Tasia [Paladin] 353723


Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 353724

I stop.
"Not kill?"

Light Heart [Warlord] 353728

I cock a brow
"Why would we lie about something like this? Please just calm down so we can untie you. There is no need to get upset."

Felfire [Necromancer] 353729

"She was looking for me, paranoic idiot!"
"You calm down, I'm coming!"

Speak to everyone.
"Beware the traps! Don't look at the statue, I will stand in front of it!"

Stand in front of the statue, giving the head my back.

Chip(DD knight) 353730

I look at Lightheart.
"She knows we are pirates? This is bad."

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 353737

I disjointedly scuff at the ground with a claw.
"Where traps?"

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 353739

I will glare at her further.
"That still doesn't answer how she found this place. At this time of day, it is completely submerged. It should be invisible to those on shore. So how did she find it?"

Chip(DD knight) 353740

I stand still for a moment.
"Time to move ponies."

I start to walk towards Felfire avoiding the traps and not looking at the statue.

Felfire [Necromancer] 353741

"Maybe she's a mage?"
Give him a flat stare.
Point him to the traps.
"Don't look at the statue."

Tasia [Paladin] 353743

I don't know when the next turn is gonna happen so I'll make my roll to escape/bash my head into the must now '1d10'

I'm out.

Roll #1 5 = 5

Light Heart [Warlord] 353744

I sigh and follow, taking Summer along and averting my gaze from the statue
"That mare is crazy…"

Tasia [Paladin] 353746

DAMN IT RNG '1d10'

Roll #1 2 = 2

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 353747

I watch where he walks and follow in his pawsteps, being careful to not trigger any traps and keep my eyes on the floor.

Wf+6 353749

Presumably they knock you out and you're unconscious. You can just nap here, tied up for now.

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 353752

"A mage would be wearing flashier clothing, like miss Emrille. That Celestial is no mage."
I'll snap my trident back over to me.
"And we are not done here, miss Felfire. You seem too vested in that Celestial's interests."

Wf+6 353753

You find a door labeled, "Gallery".

Felfire [Necromancer] 353755

"Come over here and I will tell you why, big walking lump of stupid."

Borders Skewed [Mage] 353757

"Come now. I am a mage, yet how am I dressed? just a utilitarian robe, is it not?"

Emrille [Gunslinger] 353759

"So… do we go in or is it trapped too?"

Summer Seas [Cleric] 353760

"Gallery? What's in there?"
I push on the door.

Spring Water [Charlatan] 353761


Do I see any traps on the door?

Roll #1 2 = 2

Felfire [Necromancer] 353765

"Do you even have to ask?"
Send a shadow to stop her!

Roll #1 8 = 8

Wf+6 353766


It's jammed.

Chip(DD knight) 353767

"Gal..leer reee.." I read slowly.
I then…

Stop Summer from doing that1

Roll #1 5 = 5

Wf+6 353768

You beat up an innocent kid. Summer takes 2 hits.

Chip(DD knight) 353769

"Gal..leer reee.." I read slowly.
I then…

Stop Summer from doing that1

Roll #1 5 = 5

Spring Water [Charlatan] 353770

Pick her up and put her back onto my back with a sigh
"Stay up there sweetie."

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 353771

"Your hat is eccentric enough for the entire outfit."
"I'm not so foolish as to trust any of you now, save miss Seas and Spring. Someone led that Celestial here, and until I find out who, the entire lot of you are under suspicion."

Spring Water [Charlatan] 353773

And I glower at Chip and Felfire for hurting her

Emrille [Gunslinger] 353775

"What the fuck, guys?! You could have just said it."

Felfire [Necromancer] 353776

Don't be stupid, I said stop.
As in, hold in place.

Summer Seas [Cleric] 353777

"Ow! Ow! Stoooop!"
I rub my bruises.

Light Heart [Warlord] 353778

"Please, mister Curry. Your wounds hurt me greatly."

Wf+6 353779

You don't have suppress, so you can only deal one hit instead of 5.

Chip(DD knight) 353780

I scratch my head.
"I..what… errr.. uhmmm… she might trigger a trap on the door!"

Felfire [Necromancer] 353781

I didn't hurt anyone.
That was a 8 to STOPPING her, not hitting her.
If this in wf's tongue means "Beat up the filly with my shadow" then fuck it and just ignore it.

Spring Water [Charlatan] 353783

I narrow my eyes at them
"Don't touch my daughter. Or I will hurt you."

Heal her bruises '1d10+2'

Roll #1 9 + 2 = 11

Felfire [Necromancer] 353785

Yeah fuck you too.

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 353787

"Miss Heart, until I am certain of who betrayed my trust, what other course of action can I take than to hold all involved under suspicion?"

Wf+6 353788

They're not BRUISES. They're just hits. Not even enough to knock her off her feet.

Borders Skewed [Mage] 353789

"..What? I-oh."

Put away my top hat because I didn't realise I was wearing it

Light Heart [Warlord] 353790

words rather

Emrille [Gunslinger] 353793

"Why don't you just use your fancy magic and look ahead instead so we can get a move on?"

Chip(DD knight) 353794

I breath in deep and breath out to relieve stress.
"Please Summer, let us go first. You might get hurt badly if you do something like that."

I look at Spring.
"I am just keeping your daughter safe, she might trigger a trap."

I look down with frown. Inner monolouge.
She hurt me more from the inside, but you dont know that.

I wipe away the mist forming in my eyes. Then check the door for traps.

Roll #1 2 + 2 = 4

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 353796

"What now?"

Wf+6 353799

No traps. It's just jammed.

Spring Water [Charlatan] 353800

"That's fine. Just don't touch her."

Chip(DD knight) 353802

Try to see if I can unjam it.

Roll #1 3 + 2 = 5

Borders Skewed [Mage] 353804

"..right. hold me down just in case."

Steel myself and Astral Project through.

Felfire [Necromancer] 353806

"Stand aside, everypony."
Get off my chimera.
"I've got a ram."

Summer Seas [Cleric] 353807

Seeing their reactions, I wince and sigh and walk around Spring over to them, giving them both hugs.
"It's okay mister Chip and miss Feelfear… you didn't mean it."

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 353808

I move aside.

Wf+6 353811

You're having trouble scrying in the temple. It gives you a headache. Farsight seems unaffected by this.

Looks like no.

Felfire [Necromancer] 353812

"Just, stay back with your momma. Okay?"
Placing my chimera in front of the door.
About to send it ramming against it.

Chip(DD knight) 353814

I give a out a slight smile.
"I… "
"sorry for that Summer."

And look at Spring with my paws hugging Summer.

With that I move Summer aside and let Felfire do her thing.

Spring Water [Charlatan] 353816

I roll my eyes and pick her up to put back onto my back when she's done

Borders Skewed [Mage] 353817

"I can't look through opaque objects! Someone needs to open the door."

"Yes, that will do."

Felfire [Necromancer] 353818

And then the chimera rammed into the door.

Roll #1 4 = 4


And again.

Roll #1 3 = 3

Wf+6 353822

You're doing more damage to the shadow than that antique door.


But it's a raaaam!

Roll #1 3 = 3

Chip(DD knight) 353824

"Uhhh…. is it working?"

Wf+6 353825

Sweetie… I don't think this is working.


Can I see any devices that look like they would open the door?

Roll #1 8 = 8

Emrille [Gunslinger] 353829

"We could try burning it down."

Wf+6 353830

There's a handle on the door, but someone already tried that.

Emrille [Gunslinger] 353831

"OOOOOR freezing then shattering it!"

Borders Skewed [Mage] 353832

Is there a large heavy object around?

Felfire [Necromancer] 353833

Sad. Cold.
Step aside and mount the chimera again.

Can I heal the shadow somehow?

Light Heart [Warlord] 353834

"Perhaps a secret passage word will open it."

Wf+6 353836

There's a skill for it later. Unlike corpses, shadows can be repaired without a Resurrect Minion.

Chip(DD knight) 353837

"Perhaps….. " I look at LH.
"I dont know, that Lunite magic on that Chimera worked. Do their prayers work here too perhaps?"

Emrille [Gunslinger] 353838

"Wait, let me try this first."
Frost shot at the door to freeze it.

Roll #1 3 + 2 = 5

Summer Seas [Cleric] 353839

"Maybe magic?"
I try to just… give the door a magic spark.

Roll #1 3 = 3

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 353840

"Yes. Pray door open."

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 353841

I'll be with the others, I suppose. The Celestial I'll leave tied up against the wall for now. I've got all night to interrogate her, after all.
"What seems to be the problem? Door jammed? Let me have a crack at it."
And I'll slam it open with improved TK. '1d10'

Roll #1 5 = 5

Wf+6 353842

The party is stopped universally by the door. Looks like you have finally been defeated.


I try the same

Roll #1 2 = 2

Wf+6 353844

What an embarassment as a temple keeper.

Borders Skewed [Mage] 353845

Look for an object that looks like it would be thicker than the door.

'1d10' if needed

Roll #1 10 = 10

Emrille [Gunslinger] 353846

Fire shot!

Roll #1 4 + 2 = 6

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 353847

Grumble grumble.
"Outta the way, give me a moment."
I'll move my way up to the door.
"One side, please."
And then I'll buck it open, fighting the door. '1d10+2'

Roll #1 3 + 2 = 5

Chip(DD knight) 353848

I look at the hinges, is there a way I can fix it?

or fix it with my fist somehow?

Roll #1 5 + 2 = 7

Summer Seas [Cleric] 353849

Try praying at it?

Roll #1 4 = 4


Again, I join her

Roll #1 8 = 8

Wf+6 353851

What a disaster! You pound on the door fruitlessly.

You don't see anything around here. There were those bricks, you guess.

The heat isn't high enough for the flash point of wood, but you bury a good piece of hot metal in it. It smokes a little.

You buck it repeatedly and come up with nothing.

Your prayers go unheeded by the God of Rusted Hinges.

You just punch the whole thing down. Fuck everything!

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 353853

"About blasted time. Thank you, mister Chip."

Chip(DD knight) 353854

Did I bring it down?

Chip(DD knight) 353855

"Wow…. I mean.. YEAH!!" I stand proudly.

Emrille [Gunslinger] 353856

"I'm seriously getting fed up with this place."

Wf+6 353857

Yes. You peer into the room. It's pitch black, but it's another antechamber. Big. You can feel more of an air current in here.

Summer Seas [Cleric] 353858

I clap at Chip's success.
"Hurray, you got it mister Chip!"

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 353860

"Indeed. It will certainly require serious remodeling once we're through, and it should be more… friendly."
Through the door I go.

Chip(DD knight) 353861

Okay lit my candle and enter slowly looking for traps.

Roll #1 1 + 2 = 3


I take a lit candle and hold it into the room.
Do I see any traps?

Roll #1 1 = 1


"Well, thank goodness."

Farsight down.

Roll #1 4 = 4

Spring Water [Charlatan] 353864

I sigh
"You and I both…"

Wait for everyone else to enter

Felfire [Necromancer] 353865

Save those two poor saps.
Wink one of them away.

Wf+6 353866

You hold the candle next to your face and light your face on fire. Screaming, you trip over Seekkill who has blundered into you, dropping your candle.

You blunder into Chip, knocking the both of you over, and letting a candle fall on top of you.

You are both lying on the ground on fire in a heap. This would be a compromising position if not for the fire. But don't ask me if it's hot. Because this is literally very hot.

Emrille [Gunslinger] 353867

Walk in with her.

Felfire [Necromancer] 353869


Spring Water [Charlatan] 353870

I gasp and move in to put out the fire and heal them '1d10+2'

Roll #1 6 + 2 = 8

Chip(DD knight) 353871

Roll over roll over.
And stand up

Roll #1 6 = 6

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 353872

Good thing I'm already inside the gallery.
But I suppose I should try extinguishing them. '1d10'

Roll #1 4 = 4


I roll around and try to put myself out.

Roll #1 6 = 6

Emrille [Gunslinger] 353874

"I'm not going to shoot them with an icy bullet"

Wf+6 353875

You're up, but burning.

You put out… '1d2'

Wise choice.

Roll #1 1 = 1

Felfire [Necromancer] 353876

"The ground!"

Wf+6 353877

You put out Chip! We all knew you liked him! What a sport. He's definitely not a pedophile.

Borders Skewed [Mage] 353879


"Shoot elsewhere! I'll catch it!"

Summer Seas [Cleric] 353880

Heal Seekkill!

Roll #1 2 + 5 = 7

Emrille [Gunslinger] 353881

Fire a Frost Shot in the air then.

Roll #1 9 + 2 = 11

Wf+6 353882

Okay, he's out too.


Grab it with telekinesis!

Roll #1 5 = 5

Chip(DD knight) 353884

Of course not, I just like hugging… and stuff.

Now lets do this, walk in slowly and look for traps inside the gallery.


Roll #1 9 + 2 = 11

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 353886

So… how dark is it inside the gallery anyway? Pitch black?
Stupid light had better work this time. '1d10'

Roll #1 8 = 8

Spring Water [Charlatan] 353887

I sigh
"Can we please go through five minutes without somepony getting hurt? I don't want to exert my magic and then burnout when we really need it."

Chip(DD knight) 353888

Also lit a candle to see.

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 353890

I stand back up and shake off the burnt feathers.
"Thank you."

Summer Seas [Cleric] 353893

I wave my hoof over to Felfire.
"Miss Feelfear! Can you come over here for a moment?"

Emrille [Gunslinger] 353894

"That Hydra will be a real treat if we keep this up."

Felfire [Necromancer] 353899

Trot over.
"What is it kid?"

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 353900

"Well, if miss Heart's poison plan works, it won't be too much trouble."
I'll look around. What's in the gallery that I can see, with my lit horn? '1d10'

Roll #1 8 = 8

Borders Skewed [Mage] 353902

Well everyone's out so I guess I can just drop the shot

Spring Water [Charlatan] 353903

I frown and turn my head to look at her questioningly

Summer Seas [Cleric] 353904

"Can you do that talking thing with my icon again? It… it feels weird…"

Wf+6 353905

Chip goes around setting up candles. You find a bunch of old, rusty suits of armor. The roof is kind of hard to make out with the candles because it's so vaulted. Out to the east, you see an opening to another big room.

In the middle of the room, there is one piece of armor that is not rusted. It's made out of wood, and is miraculously not decayed.

Other than that, the walls are covered in oil paintings. They look valuable. Against the north wall, there's a mosaic of Luna. Her eyes are gemstones.

Felfire [Necromancer] 353907

Seance the icon.

Roll #1 2 = 2

Felfire [Necromancer] 353909

Whatever. Take six on Seance.
I rolled just to get your attention, Wf.

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 353910

I'll sigh a bit.
"Such paintings! And… what is this odd armor?"
I'll take a look at it. '1d10'
"Also, don't touch anything. It might be trapped."

Roll #1 10 = 10


Look carefully at those gemstones. Anything of practical value?

Roll #1 8 = 8

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 353912

I look at the mosaic.
"What this?"

Chip(DD knight) 353915

"Oooohh these things are worth a fortune." I smile.

"Its looks safe in here guys, get in."

Chip(DD knight) 353917

"Something that might fetch good money on the market."
"Also, no you cant eat it."

Spring Water [Charlatan] 353919

I gawk at the mosaic in wonder

Emrille [Gunslinger] 353920

I grin at the gemstones.
"…but I bet there would be something horrible if we got those."
Any smaller knick-knacks I could fit in my pockets?

Roll #1 3 = 3

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 353921

I glare at him.
"Eat dog if trap gets it."

Wf+6 353922

"Summer Seas… I can forgive consorting with the unsavory. I did it myself. Sometimes it must be done to get by. I can forgive asking Luna for aid instead of Celestia. They were Sisters, and I am not unreasonable. I cannot forgive assaulting a fellow adherent of Celestia. Turn yourself and your fellows from this path of wickedness, or bear my boon no more."

You immediately notice a magical connection with it. It feels like it was made for a shaman. The armor itself seems alive, even here in the depths.

They're huge sapphires. Practical enough for you?

There's nothing particularly small in here. It's a viewing room. The emphasis is on BIG.

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 353925

I'll lightly trace a hoof over it.
I am the last guardian here… is it right for me to use this?
I'll think for a moment.
"Miss Seas, might I speak with you a moment?"

Summer Seas [Cleric] 353927

I fold my ears down.
"I- I'm really sorry… A- And yes miss Provst Seed Sour… how do you want me to help? Would… would cutting miss Tasia free help?"

Chip(DD knight) 353928

I gulped.
"No man no. I mean no, I dont swing that way."
"well not yet that hard considering the nurse but… no."

"Please no."

Emrille [Gunslinger] 353932

Walk next to Spring.
"I don't suppose I can take the gems."

Felfire [Necromancer] 353933

"Kid, if you are thinking about doing anything with the paladin, you better wait.
I'm not sure your new friend-" Nod over to Curry. "-would appreciate it."


I idly stroll around the room, examining some of the artwork
"How quaint."

Roll #1 3 = 3

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 353936

"Curry. Who that?"
I point at the mural.

I tilt my head.

Wf+6 353937

You feel the armor calling to you as you trace it with your hoof. If only you could talk to plants, you could imagine it begging to be worn. To see battle again. To serve Luna.

"Regardless of which Sister you serve, you mustn't turn the Churches against each other."

Felfire [Necromancer] 353940

Good thing I just glanced over at him.
"Curry, get away from that thing. It might be trapped."

Spring Water [Charlatan] 353943

"If you really want to destroy something so pretty…"

"That is Luna. Sister of Celestia. Princess of Equestria. Goddess of the Moon and Night…"

Borders Skewed [Mage] 353944

"Hmm? What.. is this.. icon?"

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 353945

"That, my feathery feline, is Luna, the Moon Princess. Or at least, a mural of her. She was beautiful, was she not? A soft light to counterpoint the sun's."
"Perhaps, miss Felfire. But it does not seem to be telling me that it is. I can… feel it."

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 353947

I squint at it.
"Wings and horn?"

Emrille [Gunslinger] 353948

"Not like many ponies come her, now do they?"

Chip(DD knight) 353950

I stand back a little looking at him uneasily.
"Look I like traps but they are the exception. Plus no Seek, I dont want to be 'eaten' by you, I am a male dog you know."

I then turn to them.
"So is it this the place that you two are seeking?"

Summer Seas [Cleric] 353952

"So… you want me to convince mister Curry to stop being so hostile?"

Spring Water [Charlatan] 353953

I nod

"No but… it's still one of the few places left that hasn't been sacked…"

Emrille [Gunslinger] 353954


Roll #1 9 = 9

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 353955

"No, miss Emrille, you may not."
"Yes. Like her sister, Luna is one of the only two alicorns in the world."
"It is… part of it. This place holds a great many treasures that were lost with this temple. The artwork itself is priceless."

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 353956

"Stupid dog. I see you find traps. I see you male. Nothing wants eaten. That why I Seekkill not Askkill."

I look back at the mural.
"Alicorn look tasty."

Wf+6 353957

"I merely want you to abide Celestia as well."

And with that, her voice slowly dies out. Seance over.

Emrille [Gunslinger] 353958

"Fine… let the shiny, beautiful gems stay here where they serve no purpose since nopony is ever around to see them anyway…"

"Wasn't talking to you."

Borders Skewed [Mage] 353961

"Hmm. Well, it doesn't appear the gems have a lot of use other than being valuable or pretty. I have little interest."

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 353962

"Even so, miss Emrille, I will not tolerate the defacement of what is likely the only lunar mural in the world. If miss Seas is agreeable, the proceeds from a single one of these paintings should be enough to tide even you over."

Felfire [Necromancer] 353963

"Rule of hoof with old magic. If you can feel it, kit probably wants your soul."

Spring Water [Charlatan] 353965

I give him a disturbed look

"It's just… an important symbol."

"Thank you."

Chip(DD knight) 353966

"I am not questioning your preferred method of hunting, I thought you… "
"Lets just drop it for now." I smile at him.

"Priceless, then its worth it. We could get even one of it like Emrille said."

Emrille [Gunslinger] 353967

"Yeah, but the paintings are a lot harder to carry around everything. But fine, calm your teats, I told you I won't get them."
I sigh,

Chip(DD knight) 353970


Approach the closed door at the other end, careful to watch out for traps on it and inspect.

Roll #1 8 + 2 = 10

Summer Seas [Cleric] 353971

I nod and take a deep breath.
I look around. Where's Tasia right now?

Wf+6 353972

There is no closed door on the other side. It opens to a freefall. About fifteen feet below, you see water.

Leaning out, in the distance to the left, you see a faint glow of light.

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 353973

"Perhaps with your sects, miss Felfire, but this feels… different."
I'll turn back toward the door.
"Miss Seas, if I could speak to you a moment?"

Wf+6 353974

Back in the hallway, knocked out.

Emrille [Gunslinger] 353975

"Yeah, yeah, I get it, I get it… it's not everyday I see something like this, you know."

Summer Seas [Cleric] 353976

"Huh? What do you want mister Curry?"

Felfire [Necromancer] 353977

Follow her.
"Poor girl didn't have the time to realize what was happening."
"Don't come running to me when you need a a tartarian pulled out of your soul."

Borders Skewed [Mage] 353978

Can I go see what Chip sees?

Spring Water [Charlatan] 353979

Go after her

Chip(DD knight) 353981

Whoa stand back a little.
Can I make out what that glow of light is?
I might have to call border if I cant.

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 353982

I watch him go with a confused look on my face.

I point at the gems in the mural.
"Said can't have shiny?"

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 353985

"As the owner of this temple, and all within, I thought it best to ask you for permission to try something with this armor here. It seems to be calling to me, and I wish to know why."
I'll shake my head.
"No, those are to stay."

Chip(DD knight) 353986

"Border I need your help."

I point the glowing light.
"Can you make out what that is? Careful now, you dont want to fall down that water."

Wf+6 353987

File: 1361682305527.png (15.99 KB, 773x589, known dungeon.png)

It's just at the other side of the room, so of course.

With the darkvision of your farsight, you see it is a huge chamber connected to the other side. You even see underwater, and see all the doors.

Light Heart [Warlord] 353989

I chuckle
"You should have seen my mansion, miss Emrille. I had murals and mosaics for it all over."

Borders Skewed [Mage] 353995

"And.. there we go."

"If we're done looting, we can progress on… here. There are some underwater chambers, too."

Emrille [Gunslinger] 353996

"I meant the gems begging to be taken."

"…you mean that decoration thing?"

Chip(DD knight) 353998

"We are going swimming…."
I look at the others, I really would like to see some of the mares here… wet glistening…

Ahhh…. I then smile.

Summer Seas [Cleric] 353999

"It's… calling to you? How?"
I also bite my tongue and contemplate asking the question, before finally asking it.
"And um… mister Curry? What are you going to do with miss Tasia?"

Spring Water [Charlatan] 354001

"She's a little crazy… I don't trust her."

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 354003

"The mural stays, yes. The paintings are up to miss Seas's discretion, as are the suits of armor."
I'll look straight into Summer's eyes.
"The armor just seems… eager. To once again fight under Her banner. I cannot explain it.
"As for the Celestial, I am going to ask her a few questions. If she continues to evade them, or lie, I will be forced to do something I might not enjoy to make sure there are no other Celestials following her down here. This temple has remained untouched by their hooves for nearly nine centuries, and it will not be me who fails to keep it that way."

Borders Skewed [Mage] 354005

Be a bit thankful I left my Twily in my bunk.

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 354009

"Put on armor. No put on armor. Decide already."

I look down at the water.
"Probably monsters."

Emrille [Gunslinger] 354010

"You realize that it's made out of wood, right? That's as impractical as it gets. I mean, I appreciate the effort of you making it easier for me to set you on fire, but I don't think Summer wants you to die just yet."

Felfire [Necromancer] 354012

"Dude, I tell you, the mare was looking for me.
She's just… Not too quick, and you all ganged on her."

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 354013

"Oh there are most definitely monsters. Down there is where the hydra lives. And I'm simply asking the owner of it if I may wear it."
"It's also magical. I'm sure you can notice that."

Light Heart [Warlord] 354014

"I'm not quite sure I trust the water to be free of danger, mister Chip."

"Well, for all we know they could be a trap, miss Emrille. Looks can be deceiving."

Spring Water [Charlatan] 354015

"She threatened to hurt us while we were in our cages… I don't mind seeing her tied up."


"Well, I'll see."

Farsight into the water again and look for things.

Roll #1 9 = 9

Summer Seas [Cleric] 354017

I frown.
"Don't you… don't you think that Luna would want you to forgive her? She was with us on the ship… I don't think she'd lead more people down here!"
I shuffle my hooves.
"And, um… you can look at the armor. The paintings stay though!"
Speaking of those, I go inside and finally look at them.

Emrille [Gunslinger] 354018

"Yeah, obviously everything here is a damn trap."

"We'll see how well it handles fire when the time comes then."

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 354019

"That does not explain how she found you, miss Felfire. AS I said, at this time of day the shrine is completely submerged. And it is proof against scrying. So how, pray tell, did she just happen to stumble into it while looking for you?"

Wf+6 354020

You see a number of small shapes flitting about in the depths.


I follow her and look around as well

Roll #1 7 = 7

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 354027

"How Doctor filly own armor?"

Chip(DD knight) 354028

Back away from the freefall area.

Look around the gallery, anything…. interesting for a dog like me so to speak?

Roll #1 1 + 2 = 3


Look at them again. Are they fish?

Roll #1 8 = 8

Felfire [Necromancer] 354030

"Well she is not the brightest sort of fellow…"
"A bunch of ponies all with a very distinctive trait-"
Flare my copper wings.
"-just come into town and start looking for the craziest things. Asking around could give pointers."

Wf+6 354032

They're nice. Most of them have night themes, or are of Luna herself.

Something… is amiss. Everyone roll perception.

They're too big to be fish. They look like ponies.

Something huge draws your attention as it exits the room directly two floors below you. It distinctly has four long necks. The smaller figures scatter and head for exits.

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 354033

"She is the last inheritor of the Lunar Priesthood. She opened the way here when that hasn't been done for a very, very long time. This entire temple is, by rights, hers."
"Not to find an temple that is underwater. But I'll have my answers from her. If she echoes your story, perhaps this place isn't as hidden as I had thought. But if so, why would the other Celestials leave it unmolested all these centuries? There are simply too many questions."

Roll #1 10 = 10

Wf+6 354049

You gasp in delight seeing a painting!

It was probably nothing. You can relax now.

You alone think to look up.

You can't quite make out the ceiling… You start to wonder why that is. You should be able to see it with this many candles… you can see the edges of the wall end… then black…

Borders Skewed [Mage] 354054

"There appear to be seaponies and a hydra underneath- what?"

Light Heart [Warlord] 354055

I clear my throat and point my hoof up
"Mister Borders. Look up please."

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 354057

"I sincerely doubt that, miss Seas. Else I wouldn't be the last Lunar Guardian, and your mother would not have had such troubles."

Emrille [Gunslinger] 354058

I look up as well.

Felfire [Necromancer] 354059

Let's look up. And slowly back away from the room…

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 354060

I look up…

…and follow her out.

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 354061

And seeing everyone else is, I'll look up as well.
"Now what is everyone staring at?"

Summer Seas [Cleric] 354062

Can I light up my horn to try and see what's up there?

"Miss Tasia didn't seem upset that we followed Luna!"

Roll #1 1 = 1


Pick up Summer and back out of here.
Paintings or not… that is weird.

Roll #1 2 = 2

Felfire [Necromancer] 354064

"Kid, come closer. Let's leave."

Wf+6 354065

You also gasp when you realize things are amiss.

Let me tell you a little story about a wonderful little plant called Creeping Mold. This stuff loves dumb sentients. Diamond Dogs, Sea Ponies, anything that's not clever enough to remove it, but is smart enough to have thoughts. It also likes moist, damp places. This place is the ecological jackpot. You see, the reason the mold likes this stuff so much is because it just loves to get its spores inside of you and control your thoughts.

Everyone save against mind control. Summer Seas and Spring Water get -4 for critfailing.

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 354066

Shite. '1d10'

Roll #1 3 = 3

Emrille [Gunslinger] 354067

Okay. Trot out of the room.

Mind Control?…

My mind is my own!

Roll #1 1 - 4 = -3

Chip(DD knight) 354075

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 354077

Brain-eating mold. Roll save vs Mind control.

Chip(DD knight) 354079

Oh wait

Roll #1 6 = 6

Wf+6 354083

Curry, Emrille, Felfire, Summer Seas, Spring Water
Well there's one thought on your minds. You've simply got to get these interlopers to breathe more spores.

Chip, Light Heart, Seekkill, Borders
Well there's simply one thought on your mind. About half the party has a crazy look in their eyes.

Rosemary's save: '1d10'

Roll #1 4 = 4

Rosemary joins team Fungus.

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 354088

I leave the room.


Can Fervored and Magenta snap me back to reality?

Roll #1 9, 4 = 13



Pull out a gas mask or some wearable filter from my hat! Come on…

Roll #1 10 = 10

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 354093

Well, best way to breathe spores is straight from the source! I'll start scraping some of the mold off the ceiling with telekinesis and hurling it at the uninfected. '1d10'

Roll #1 1 = 1

Emrille [Gunslinger] 354094

I take a deep breath.
"What's the hurry? Everything is aaaalright."


Slap her

Get her back to reality. I am her master.

Roll #1 10 = 10

Borders Skewed [Mage] 354098

Wait, shit, do I even know about the spores? If not can I use that 10 as a knowledge roll too?

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 354101

We breathed them in, we got crazy. That should be enough.

Summer Seas [Cleric] 354102

So can the infected people make saves against the spores, or do we have to straight up attack?


Oh boy! I sure love spores!

Do we continue to roll will saves or are we just plants now?

Roll #1 7 = 7

Chip(DD knight) 354105

Are they staring at me.
I knew I was sexy.
"Hey… whats with the wild look. I am only one old pirate." I smile at them.

perception to see if something is wrong with them.

Roll #1 9 = 9

Chip(DD knight) 354111

Oh shit something 'is' wrong. Back away a little.
"LightHeart, whats with them??" I stand near her.

Light Heart [Warlord] 354112

"Spores. Try to hold your breath as much as possible."

Summer Seas [Cleric] 354113

And uh
A roll to do whatever I can I guess

Roll #1 2 = 2

Chip(DD knight) 354114

Do as what she told me and raise my paws.

Wf+6 354117

You pull out a perfect gas mask. They haven't even been invented yet!

You feel much more in touch with The Colony as you cover yourself in the junk.

Fervored Freedom restrains you as you attempt to beat the shit out of Magenta.

You do.

It seems to a willing mind, your commanding presence is enough to break even the control of mold. She shakes herself 'awake'.


She sort of slumps over, helpless, but she's back on your side.

If you don't take an offensive action I take one for you.

You can roll a save in addition to an attack. Define which is which in your post. Spring Water has to roll a 13 to save, though, so she will have to be cured some other way.

You direct your hatred at that no good Chip. He takes two hits.

You lash out at Chip, but only manage to sort of combat roll into a wall.

Chip: 5/7

Emrille attacks: '1d10'

Roll #1 4 = 4

Wf+6 354118

Emrille takes a shot at that high and mighty unicorn, Light Heart, but misses.


Roll a save, have the shadows restrain me.

Roll #1 4, 9 = 13 / Roll #2 3 = 3

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 354122

Invigorating! But ultimately not sharing the wealth! Toss it around I said! TK Mold '1d10' at Light Heart.

Roll #1 10 = 10

Wf+6 354124

You also attack '1d10'

Roll #1 7 = 7

Emrille [Gunslinger] 354125

That was such a crap shot!
Snap out if it! Show them how it's done!

Roll #1 2 = 2

Felfire [Necromancer] 354126

But the 9 to restrain me!

Light Heart [Warlord] 354127

Cheap shot him with my hoof before he can hit me

Rosemary cures him '1d10'

Roll #1 7 = 7


Oooh, what's this? Whatever, put it on myself!

Then hold down Summer Seas with Improve Telekinesis, bring her to the floor and have her stay there!

Roll #1 4 = 4

Summer Seas [Cleric] 354130

I guess I
I go and attack.
And save!

Roll #1 5, 4 = 9

Wf+6 354131

Are you electing to Take 1 for that cheap shot?

Light Heart [Warlord] 354132

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 354134

Now that I am out of the room at I start taking pot shots at everyone acting crazy.
'1d10' to shoot Curry.

Roll #1 3 = 3


Start combat? Doesn't that count? If not then here

Roll #1 7 = 7


I guess I'll just roll attack rolls then…

Roll #1 10 = 10

Wf+6 354137

I think we can all agree combat has already started since punches have started flying.

Light Heart [Warlord] 354140

Combat between them, yeah. No one has actually 'attacked' me personally

But whatever

Chip(DD knight) 354149

>autoupdate fuck up
I grab Summer and bring her out of the room.
"What the hell Sumemr get a hold of yourself!" I lightly slap her on the cheeks, well who knows.


Roll #1 7 = 7

Wf+6 354156

You miss, miserably.

Curry's mind clears up slightly, and his saves will be easier, but he's still a member of The Colony.

MEANWHILE, you join the fold, Light Heart.

Rosemary gives you a worried look.

Stupid Rosemary! Always getting the glory! Woops you missed her.

And you miss Miss Seas as well.

In general, Fervored restrains you, but Magenta takes a couple hits.

Emrille attacks! Elemental Shot: Ice! '1d10+2'

On Rosemary!

You try to pin her down, and shove her back a little.

That monster Chip is hurting your baby! CHANGE HIS MIND!

You stuff spores down his throat. He's part of The Colony now.

To reiterate:
TEAM FUNGUS: Curry, Emrille, Felfire, Summer Seas, Spring Water, Light Heart, Chip

TEAM SANITY: Rosemary, Shadow Minions (Immune), Seekkill, Borders Skewed (Immune)

Wake up, bitch, what was that?
You cal that a shot?!

Roll #1 4 = 4

Chip(DD knight) 354165

"Oh yes, I like that Mrs. Spring." I smile with glee, the spores taking a hold of me.

I then stand up and tackle Rosemary to the ground and hold her. Let the others infect her NOW!

Roll #1 5 = 5

Felfire [Necromancer] 354166

Restrain me!

Roll #1 1 = 1 / Roll #2 3, 9 = 12

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 354167

Nope! Still a fungi.

I'll just wink about avoiding attacks while conjuring another one of this masks from the hat!

Roll #1 10 = 10

Wf+6 354199

You become one with The Colony. Cleverly, you dismiss your minions.

My love, I–


You bury your head in a pile of fungus. Feels cozy. Feels at one with The Colony.

You pull another mysterious mask out of the hat. What a neat skill.

I'll take that as your action instead of the 6.

You wrestle Curry a bit, taking away four hits. Soon you'll FORCE the right mind into him!

That FUCKING WIZARD is the cause of all of this! Beat his shit!

He takes a couple hits.

Now that Chip has his wits about him, time to make sure the other doctor does, too. Where's that Rosemary? Better pin her down for this.

Two hits, she's helpless. You stuff her full of fungus and she's loopy.

You miserably roll into a wall as you watch Spring Water wrestle Rosemary to the ground. You love it with unicorn lady wrestle!

Not waking up any time soon.

Shoot at that stupid wizard! '1d10'

You are quite submerged. Rosemary can't even clear the air for Spring. She gets tackled and joins the fold.

You take a hit out of her.

You don't break free. Instead, you hit that stupid Wizard for one.

TEAM FUNGUS: Curry, Emrille, Felfire, Summer Seas, Spring Water, Light Heart, Chip, Rosemary

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 354209

And if that's a success, this is to knock someone else out of their stupor. (a healer, preferably.) If it's a fail, it's to inflict mold on them. Let's say Seekkill, because he hit me. '1d10'

Then grab Border instead

Roll #1 6 = 6

Wf+6 354233

Curry breaks free of Seekkill and knocks his block off for 4. He doesn't regain his senses.

You charge into the hallway and shove some delicious spores into Seekkill's face. Welcome to the herd, brony.

Rosemary shakes herself back in control.


You are a complete tard! Now shoot someone! That mage! '1d10+2'

You sprint over to Borders and jerk his mask off.

You're still in the deep sleep, mentally.

You 'awaken' in time you find yourself eating more spores. That was a short-lived session of wakefulness.

The only person you manage to feed spores is yourself.

Nope. The universe is catching wise. Best stop them tricks, Mage, or I'll slap you.

You take another hit out of him.

TEAM FUNGUS: Curry, Emrille, Felfire, Summer Seas, Spring Water, Light Heart, Chip, Rosemary, Seekkill

Emrille beats Rosemary back into submission. She must obey the Colony.

Total Party Control

Swarm, something is alive in the corridor. Bring it to me.

Rolling for saves time is over. Best obey that Colony.

Does it feel nice?

Roll #1 3 = 3

Wf+6 354261

In the corridor, you find a bound and unconscious paladin. There's also a strange Donkey.

He seems to have stolen an entire brazier from Curry's room.

"Well what are YOU lookin' at, ya pussyfooted swampreeds? I toldjya that I'd come back. I just had ta think about it first."



Roll #1 9, 7 = 16

Indoctrinate the poor soul.

Roll #1 2 = 2


Stare back at him.

Roll #1 6 = 6

Emrille [Gunslinger] 354265

"Come with us."


Grab them!

Roll #1 8, 8 = 16

Summer Seas [Cleric] 354267

I stare back at him, presumably slack jawed.

Roll #1 10 = 10

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 354269

Welp, let's hold him still, I guess. '1d10'

Roll #1 1 = 1


"You need to join us. Here, have some of these spores, won't you?"

Roll #1 8 = 8

Wf+6 354272

Much like a zombie horde, you rush him and drag him and Tasia back to the gallery room. The brazier was strapped to his back, so this is incredibly painful, but you don't seem to care about physical pain anymore.

Once you arrive in the gallery, you start stuffing his face with spores. The paladin's, too. Your cloths start to catch on fire from the brazier. You're all burning alive, and you don't care, because it's so good to serve the Colony. Soon Tasia is sleep-talking about serving the Colony, but no matter how much you stuff in that stupid Donkey's mouth, he won't stop screaming about "zombiehooved waterkittens".

Pretty soon the room starts to suffer from smoke damage as you all sort of roast alive. Even Felfire, who is ostensibly only wearing her coat of hair, joins in on the burning fun.

Funny thing about Creeping Mold. Fire doesn't do much to it… but it sure hates smoke. All of the paintings in the room are ruined by the smoke damage, of course.

As all of you drop to the ground, roasting alive, Mocking Wark has the good grace to at least throw you out the freefall into the waiting waters below. Soon you are engulfed on all sides by cool, refreshing water. Every last one of you is on the brink of death, but very alive and in control of your actions.

Mocking Wark calls from above, "Hey… I forgot to ask if you zombiehooved waterkittens can swim?"


Chip(DD knight) 354275

Well fuck…
Stand up.

Roll #1 7 = 7


Of course I can swim. The real question is if I can fly back up to the room.

Roll #1 5 = 5


Swim. I should try that.

Am I able to fly? If so, can I try to drag Rosemary and I back to Wark?

Roll #1 3 = 3

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 354285

We're on the bottom floor. Hydra territory.


Where is Summer!? Get her!

Roll #1 10 = 10

Light Heart [Warlord] 354287

I am very aware of this. That is why I want to fly to safety

Wf+6 354288

Swimming is a free action! You escape to the stair room. Nothing follows you.

Except you. You wink up to the Donkey's vantage.

You're far too beat up for that.

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 354290

"Miss Seas, are you well?"

Emrille [Gunslinger] 354292

The coat!
My precious coat!
And that rolled 10?
Is it safe? Is it all right? Is it fireproof and still glorious?

Borders Skewed [Mage] 354293

"Are you all alright? Do we want to continue?"

Chip(DD knight) 354294

"Ugghh.. this is not right."
I look at the charrad Curry.
"This is really a temple of doom."

Wf+6 354295

The coat… had a hard life.

You'll need to examine it in the light.

Spring Water [Charlatan] 354296

"Why… Luna? Why?"

Grab Summer into a tight hug

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 354299

"Seekkill wants boats."


Drop on my aunches. That was terrible. I was… Not dying.
Roll not to throw up

Roll #1 9 = 9

Emrille [Gunslinger] 354301

Is it?

Roll #1 6 = 6

Light Heart [Warlord] 354302

I collapse onto the ground

My poor heart…

"And this is why I do not visit temples…"

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 354303

"I never knew about that mold. I never would have brought anyone here without the proper equipment if I knew that… thing was up there. I would have just had miss Emrille, miss Heart, and your gryphon friend ferry us to the library."

Summer Seas [Cleric] 354304


I grab Spring in a hug.
"W- Why is she making us do this… I… I don't think I want to be the.. the owner of this temple…"

Can I just… take a 10, or at least a 6 and heal everyone of their wounds?
Not using the icon of course.

Borders Skewed [Mage] 354305

Also, do I still have my Mask?

Wf+6 354306

You don't throw up, but feel something in your throat. Come to think of it, it's probably just smoke.

Wark gives you an odd look. "What are ya askin ME for? Yer a piece of charcoal."

He looks at the armor. "This is some fancy wooden armor. Ya think they want it? Might try it on meself."

Emrille [Gunslinger] 354307

"I won't do any fucking favors at this point. And I won't feel bad about looting this god forsaken fucking death trap either."

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 354308

I lie down on whatever side of me hurts the least.
"Luna fake. Luna mold."

Wf+6 354309

It's probably out in that hallway somewhere.

Yeah, you can just heal everyone over time. I'd hate to see you critfail here and kill someone.

It looks… covered in smoke. Might be cleanable.

Spring Water [Charlatan] 354310

I quietly pet her mane while hugging to try and calm her down

Borders Skewed [Mage] 354312

"I was directing that at our crew below."

Take the wooden armour.

"That Lunite seemed to want this. It'll probably work better on him."

Light Heart [Warlord] 354313

How is Rosemary faring after that?

Wf+6 354315

He frowns. "I saved yer sorry behind. I'm going to carry it so you don't mess up again, ya braindead sea urchin."

Do you dispute him?

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 354316

I'll look to Summer.
And then back to Emrille.
"Aye. What good's a temple beneath the sea, to a group that died out long ago, and is hanging on by the breath of an old stallion and such a small child?"
I'll slowly make my way to the further up the stairs.
"I've done you all a wrong bringing you here."

Wf+6 354317

She's curled up in a corner.

Chip(DD knight) 354318

"Ugghh.. this is bad, we had to get out of here first and come back prepared."


Or maybe all the spores I've inhaled. Nah, what a silly idea!
Call both my shadows. In the shadows of fliers if possible.

Roll #1 10 = 10

Emrille [Gunslinger] 354321

At least it's not burnt.
I'll clean it once we are up

Are the gems still in their place?

"Good, at least I won't have to shoot you over it."

Light Heart [Warlord] 354322

I sigh and walk over to her
"Miss Rosemary?"

Wf+6 354324

The party has plenty of spare fliers with unclosed shadows. Done.

Hard to say from here.


She's not taking it well.

Summer Seas [Cleric] 354325

Can I make a prayer to Luna?
Ask her how many more hardships we'll have to overcome?
I just want this to end…

Roll #1 10 = 10

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 354326

I'll be heading back up to the main floor, to the mold room. I've at least got to thank that donkey.

Emrille [Gunslinger] 354327

Fly there and check.
Make sure to cover my mouth with my coat.

Felfire [Necromancer] 354328

Get to the head of the group.
Shut up.

Light Heart [Warlord] 354329

I kneel down next to her
"Could you please remain strong for me? I am aware this has been quite the shock but… you are not alone, okay?"

Borders Skewed [Mage] 354330

"You'll have to take it up with our new crewmember. Either way, I believe we will get an optimal allocation efficiency if we give it to him. It seems to have some sort of power that only he can use. It'll be best for us all, you know."

Wf+6 354331

You pass out.

In your dream, you are curled up in Luna's embrace. She tells you, Go now, Summer Seas. My sanctum is unguarded. The Hydra is on the hunt. Hurry.

Wf+6 354334

There are no more spores.

He grabs the armor and hikes off for the stairs.

Summer Seas [Cleric] 354336

Your sanctum is unguarded? How do I get there?

Emrille [Gunslinger] 354337

Get those gems then.
Can't be that hard to dislodge.

Borders Skewed [Mage] 354338

Can the armour fit through my hat?

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 354339

I'll probably meet him on the way up.
"Ho there, friend. I see you've taken a prize from the room. I take it there was nothing else worth keeping?"


I check for traps on the staircase. If there aren't any I go up.

Roll #1 5 = 5

Chip(DD knight) 354341

Follow the others back to the main room or wherever they are conglomerating

Wf+6 354342

Just one more flight of stairs. I… can't speak any longer like this… Hurry…

You wake up with a jolt.

Spring Water [Charlatan] 354344

Hug her close as she rests


Light Heart [Warlord] 354345

Summer Seas [Cleric] 354347

I break Spring's embrace and look towards the final flight of stairs with a sense of purpose.
I get up and head down them.

Wf+6 354349

"Some whiny braggart was corkscrewin out the gems from a mosiac. I changed me mind. You can have the fancy armor. I have something I want more."

He shoves the armor onto you.

There aren't any.

"I-I-I-I-I… okay."

She says it in a very small voice.


Felfire [Necromancer] 354350

Follow after her, never say a word. Same for my shadows.

Emrille [Gunslinger] 354351

Wf+6 354352

You pop them out. No sweat!

Spring Water [Charlatan] 354353

I'm surprised by her sudden sense of purpose and follow after her

Emrille [Gunslinger] 354354

Safely put them away and rejoin the others.

Chip(DD knight) 354355

Seeing her running around again, I follow her
"Hey that place is not yet secured."

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 354356

I'll look at him confused.
"Are you certain? I know there probably isn't much, but you deserve something in thanks… and in apology."

Light Heart [Warlord] 354357

I gently pick her up and give her a small hug
"We'll be fine, miss Rosemary. Through thick and thin, right?"

Borders Skewed [Mage] 354358

Wink the armour back, and once I have it, dive down to join the party.


Light Heart [Warlord] 354359

I also lead her along as the party takes their leave

Wf+6 354360

The final floor is filled with water… but you see some kind of grid on the floor on the ground.

You can either swim to the sanctum, or drain the third floor. Draining the floor will arouse suspicion.

"I'm not here for trophies. And wooden armor is itchy. If you want to thank me, ya humble meadowlark, ya can come up with a way for me to torment my vassal."

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 354361

I follow the party.

Wf+6 354362

You steal the armor from Curry. What a cunning thief!

What will you do with your armor? And since you have to be within 10 meters, he sees you stole it.

Felfire [Necromancer] 354363

Have one of my shadows pick her up, then nod at her.

Felfire [Necromancer] 354364

Summer, that is.

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 354365

"You mean miss Heart?"
I'll scratch my beard.
"I'm not afraid I know her well enough to ruffle her feather properly…"
Well, might as well put that armor on. Guess I can ditch the scale mail, for now.

Summer Seas [Cleric] 354366


I nod back at her and hop on it.

Chip(DD knight) 354367

I catch up with them.
"This is not safe, what are you all doing?"

Emrille [Gunslinger] 354368

Fly after the unicorns.

Spring Water [Charlatan] 354369

"S-Summer? Please answer…"

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 354370

"Bounder, now is not the time for games."

Borders Skewed [Mage] 354371

Hold it and follow the party into the water, then catch up to them.

"Your help will probably be needed, anyway, if our location is correct, we're going to face a Hydra."

Light Heart [Warlord] 354372

Felfire [Necromancer] 354373

The shadow can fly you wherever you poiny it.
I'm still mute.

Emrille [Gunslinger] 354374

"You are a doctor, right? Maybe that stuff damaged her brains?"

Borders Skewed [Mage] 354375


Wf+6 354376

You immediately feel more in tune with Luna and nature in general. The wooden armor seems to grow around you, very much alive, to fit your form.

You now get double benefits from Child of the Moon, and Moonbound heals you twice as often.

She offers a weak nod.

Wf+6 354377

He gave it to Curry you untrusting dandylion.

Summer Seas [Cleric] 354379

"I- I saw Luna in my dream momma… She told me that the hydra is distracted and that the sanctum is free."

I point the shadow to fly to the sanctum.

Light Heart [Warlord] 354380

I smile and keep leading her along, following the party

Wf+6 354382

Flying underwater is hard. You want it to SWIM you there?

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 354383

I guess I'll rejoin the others, then.
And then join Summer in the water.

Felfire [Necromancer] 354384

Fly above it.
Dive both shadows and use them to protect her to reach the sanctum.

Chip(DD knight) 354385

"There she goes… I guess."

"Are you feeling alright you two?" I look at Lightheart and Rose

Spring Water [Charlatan] 354386

"Luna? But…"
I look down and sigh
"Okay then…"
Follow her

Summer Seas [Cleric] 354388

The entire room is flooded to the roof?

Emrille [Gunslinger] 354389

"If that's not true you might be leading us to our deaths, you know."

Wf+6 354391

The room you want to enter is. And the hallway following it. The stairs go directly into the water.

The sanctum itself has a more vaulted ceiling.

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 354392

No, just to the stairway of the third floor, more or less.

Light Heart [Warlord] 354394

"We will live, mister Chip. Thank you."
Is Wark around here somewhere or did he stay behind?

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 354395

I point at the water.
"What past water?"

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 354396

He followed me down, I think.

Wf+6 354397

He finally catches up.


He scowls at you.

Summer Seas [Cleric] 354398

Fuck it
I dismount the shadow then, run over to Spring and give her a hug and a kiss, then take a few deep breaths and start swimming.

Roll #1 7 = 7

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 354399

And I'll follow after. She needs someone there, after all.

Emrille [Gunslinger] 354400

She's insane…
I guess I follow her.
I promised Spring I'll watch over her.

Felfire [Necromancer] 354401

Roll my eyes. Dive in, have the shadows help me if I can't make it alonne.

Roll #1 8, 2, 2 = 12

Chip(DD knight) 354402

I think for a moment.

"I should have putted her and the rest of the party inside the bag of holding and swim there." I blurted out.

Light Heart [Warlord] 354403

"Master Wark. That is the second time you saved my life now. And that of all the others."
I smile at him and nod
"It appears we are in a interesting situation right now. If you'll forgive me for my past mistakes, I would very much like to have you back."

Spring Water [Charlatan] 354404

Jump after her!

Chip(DD knight) 354405

The bag of holding has air right? If so use it as air device for breathing and follow Summer while assisting the others as they swim.

Wf+6 354406

You swim without issue all the way to the sanctum. The water seems to stop, as if held back mysteriously by a shield. You burst out of it onto dry land.

Moonlight fills the chamber even though it is not imaginably possible. There is a huge crescent moon symbol on the ground.

The room is strewn with the bones of seaponies. In the middle, one is bleeding out. Even in its last breaths, the mangled beast pathetically gnashes its teeth at you. It's no threat to anypony.

You all swim to the chamber, but Felfire's minions get stopped by the same shield that is stopping the water.

He scrunches. "Yer nothin' but trouble for me, you rotten lassie. Why should I?"

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 354407

I'll clamber out into the chamber.
"So… this is it, then. The thing I've been trying to kill that bloody hydra for twenty years to find."

Felfire [Necromancer] 354408

Dismiss them and raise them anew. Good shadows.

Emrille [Gunslinger] 354409

Finish off the seapony.
No need to listen it gnash and stuff.
Marksman shot.

Roll #1 4 = 4

Wf+6 354410

You're having trouble raising shadows in the moonlight.

Perception check.

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 354411

I sigh then take a deep breath and follow them.

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 354412


Roll #1 9 = 9


I cough and look around

Roll #1 6 = 6

Summer Seas [Cleric] 354414

I walk into the room and marvel at the sight.
And… try to find what I'm supposed to be looking for, if anything.

Roll #1 4 = 4

Borders Skewed [Mage] 354415

Uh, oh

Y-yeah I'll just give it back to Curry if he hasn't taken it back


No light, no shadows. Keep trying.

Roll #1 8, 2 = 10

Chip(DD knight) 354417

"Is this the place? If so, finally." I let out a breath of relief and stress.

Wf+6 354418

You notice a distinctly Lunar charm around the neck of the Seapony Emrille is trying to kill.

Is it… a coincidence?

Light Heart [Warlord] 354419

I chuckle
"Well I could make it worth your while, one way or the other. I agree this whole ordeal has been very unpleasant thusfar, but it would have ended much worse if it wasn't for you."

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 354420

"Emrille, wait!"
I'll move up next to it, and show it my own moon pendant.
"Do you know what this is, creature?"

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 354421

I scowl and sit down.

Emrille [Gunslinger] 354422

I roll my eyes.
"I don't think they can talk. Or understand anything at all."

Spring Water [Charlatan] 354423

I give him an odd look

Stick close to her

Wf+6 354424

You're not sure what you're supposed to be looking for here, but you admire the architecture. It's really nice.

There's something more to it than that. This place is Divine.

It nods miserably.

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 354425

"Miss Spring… could you heal this seapony?"

Emrille [Gunslinger] 354426

Anything shiny and lootable?

"…you're kidding right?"

Roll #1 7 = 7

Felfire [Necromancer] 354427

Well fuck. Not my holiday location of choice.
Stick close to the filly.

Summer Seas [Cleric] 354428

"Heal the seapony?… Why?"

Wf+6 354429

Large gems stud the six corners of the hexagonal room.

Spring Water [Charlatan] 354430

"I… why? What if it atta-"
I interrupt myself and sigh, too tired to even argue

Heal it '1d10+2'

But keep my distance with Summer at my side

Roll #1 4 + 2 = 6

Light Heart [Warlord] 354432

Chip(DD knight) 354434

I look around and raise my guard are there anything of interest?
>inb4 a >1

Roll #1 9 = 9


Do I spot those?

Roll #1 8 = 8

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 354436

"Because, miss Seas, it seems to be wearing a lunar charm of some kind."
"Thank you, miss Spring."

Wf+6 354437

Most of its more grievous wounds close up, but it's still pretty beaten.

He keeps up his scowl. "Well how can ya make it worthwhile to me?"

Emrille [Gunslinger] 354438

Curry can get his dick chewed off for all I care.
Check those gems out from up close

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 354439

"You understand words, I take it, seapony?"

Wf+6 354440

You also spot the gems.

They're very pretty. Big sapphires.

Summer Seas [Cleric] 354441

I'll nod and heal it some more then.

Roll #1 5 + 2 = 7


Can I see anything important?

Roll #1 1 = 1

Wf+6 354443

It nods mournfully.

Now it's just horribly bruised, with most of the open wounds gone.

Emrille [Gunslinger] 354444

Are they supporting anything?
Sitting on anything that might be a magical trap or doohickey?

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 354446

"Can… can you speak?"


Can I roll a normal die?

Roll #1 2 = 2

Wf+6 354448

You stare at your shadow pitiably.


Chip(DD knight) 354449

Follow Emrille and try to see if my Diamond dog sense can appraise how much the ruby will cost in doubloons.

"That is a mighty fine gem we have here."

Also check out for traps.

Roll #1 6 = 6 / Roll #2 10 + 2 = 12

Summer Seas [Cleric] 354450

"You understand words?… Why are you wearing the Lunar pendant?"

Light Heart [Warlord] 354451

"What is it you desire most in this world, mister Wark?"

Emrille [Gunslinger] 354452

"Yeah, it is. If we get them, I want at least three. Four if possible. You can have the other two."

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 354453

I check to make sure they aren't connected to traps.
If they aren't then I pry a few out with my talons.

Roll #1 5 = 5 / Roll #2 10 = 10

Spring Water [Charlatan] 354454

"Can you speak?"

Felfire [Necromancer] 354455

How is this place shaped?

Wf+6 354456

It gestures at its pendant. It appears to have been smashed in.

They are engraved into the wall.

He stares up into the dark of the ceiling.

"I wan' me clan back, but since that's out of the realm of the world at this point, I'd settle fer captaining a vessel. The Seaworthy."

Wf+6 354459

Like a hexagon, as mentioned before.

You're kind of dopey. No good with numbers. Also they're sapphires so that kind of hurts your pride since they look nothing alike.

No traps, though.

Summer Seas [Cleric] 354460

I take a closer look at the pendant then.

Roll #1 8 = 8

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 354461

"May I?"
I'll gesture to the pendant.

Emrille [Gunslinger] 354462

Fuck it, just start picking them off then.


Books, weapons, trinkets lying anywhere?

Roll #1 8 = 8

Light Heart [Warlord] 354464

I cross my hooves
"That is a tall order indeed. How do you go about achieving it? Perhaps I could aid you in some way."

Wf+6 354466

The sanctum is littered with seapony bones and other rot. This is a hydra den.

"Yer the sneaky one, aren't you? I don't expect you to make it happen right away. But I expect to be paid in full, understand, ya leafed-hooved waterstrider?"

Chip(DD knight) 354467

"No traps on the gems it appear." I told Emrille.

I then whisper.
"But it is kinda rude to get them since we got Lunites here. Not that I dont want a split though."


Can I raise some of those?

Roll #1 1 = 1

Emrille [Gunslinger] 354469

"I think we deserve it after this shit."

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 354470

Wf+6 354471

Roger, Roger. What's our vector, Vector? Over.

She nods.

You examine the pendant. You can feel the remnants of magic on it, but it's leaking out of the smashed thing.

Light Heart [Warlord] 354472

"Sneaky? No, not at all mister Wark. I just know what I want. So you wish to be paid in full? How much are we talking then?"

Emrille [Gunslinger] 354473

Get the gems!
Off the wall!
And in my hooves!

Roll #1 10 = 10

Summer Seas [Cleric] 354474

Wait, leaking?
Can I try and contain the magic?

Roll #1 10 = 10

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 354475

"Miss Spring, is there an Enchanter on your ship? Or perhaps… do you think the library might have a book with the right spell to mend this pendant?"

Wf+6 354476

Well, with a ten, I'd say you snatch them all up before Emrille can get any!

You cast Raise Dead, and fail miserably. You expect a horrible, ancient Hydra spirit to inhabit one and kill you all. Fortunately for your poor, burdened soul, it looks like Grogar cannot touch Luna's domain.

Chip(DD knight) 354477

"Likely indeed." I look at my charred fur.

Wf+6 354478

Okay, fine, you each get three.

You sort of create a mystic cork with your experimental magic.

Don't think too much about it. The situation stops getting worse, but it's not better.

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 354479

Well, let's give it back to the seapony for the moment.
"Did it work?"

Spring Water [Charlatan] 354480

I sigh weakly
"I don't know… I really… I just don't know anymore…"

Chip(DD knight) 354481

Well, dang dont I get a share of the gem?

Roll #1 4 = 4

Felfire [Necromancer] 354482

I just want to die.
Is there a door around here?

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 354483

I put them in my bag and sit down. These gems are going to look great decorating my den/nest/dark-corner-away-from-everyone.

Wf+6 354484

He frowns. "I meant you make me the captain of the Seaworthy. I wouldn't have sought you out if I didn't think ya had tha potential, ya blundering starfish."

Summer Seas [Cleric] 354485

"Um… mister Seapony? May I see this pendant?"

Emrille [Gunslinger] 354486

Three is enough.
Stash them away.

Pet him on the head.
"Sorry pup, finders keepers. Better luck next time!"
Lean closer and whisper.
"Take this as an act of generosity. I don't give you any gems, but I don't shoot your balls off either for groping me when I was a filly you sick bastard."
Smile at him.

Wf+6 354487

Nothing but the big wave of water perpetually frozen at the edge of the room.

It looks like it needs serious repair first.

Light Heart [Warlord] 354488

"Mister Chip. I believe the agreement was that you would do this mission gratis."

Also >>354472

Wf+6 354489

She nods at you.

Wf+6 354490

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 354491

"Well, until we get this repaired, you're coming with us. Or me, at least. So if you promise not to try and eat me while I'm carrying you around, I'll fix this up for you so we can have a nice chat."

Felfire [Necromancer] 354492

"Hey Emrille!"
Once I have her attention, speak normally.
"How many bullets would it take you to defreeze that?"
Point at the wave.

Light Heart [Warlord] 354493

I let out a small laugh
"Well, perhaps some day I can help with that, yes. Though I'm afraid that day wont be today."

Summer Seas [Cleric] 354494

I take it from him and put it on.
Can I feel anything coming from it?

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 354495

I'll glance at Felfire.
"Miss, even if that would work, it would flood the chamber and most of us would likely drown."

Chip(DD knight) 354496


"What are you talking about?" I raise my eyebrow.

Wf+6 354497

He grimaces at you. "Then I'm stuck with ya until ya come through on it. But if I think you plan to renege, I'm out! Understand me, you flipflopping pinwheel?"

Spring Water [Charlatan] 354498

"Can it even talk?"

Felfire [Necromancer] 354499

"Better to drown than to be… That, again."

Emrille [Gunslinger] 354500

"Uh, no idea. Wouldn't that flood the room or something?"

Speak in a low voice.
"You know what I am. Or do you want me to announce it loudly?"

Light Heart [Warlord] 354501

"Very well mister Wark. Let us work together to achieve that captain's hat."
I extend my hoof

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 354502

"That's what I want to know, miss Spring. That's what I want to know, and I won't until we get that pendant fixed. It's leaking magic, and it's an old magic at that."
"I'm aware you're anxious to get to the library, but you'll just have to wait until miss Seas is done here…"
I'll slap my hoof to my forehead.
"Great galloping goldfish, we're in the shrine! Miss Seas, have you tried to speak with Luna at the main part of the shrine yet?"

Chip(DD knight) 354503

My brow furrow.
"Felfire or Smitts?"

Felfire [Necromancer] 354505

"It's kinda the point. Can't you see it? It's meant to fall."

Wf+6 354506

You take it from HER and put it on.

You feel something, but you're not sure what.


In shock, you turn around, and see the ethereal form of Luna herself.


He gives you a skeptical look, but then shakes it.

Emrille [Gunslinger] 354507

"Doesn't matter. Now shush. I'll keep the gems, and the gems will keep my mouth shut."

I raise an eyebrow.
"What? What is meant to fall?"

Summer Seas [Cleric] 354509

I jump back, startled and look around.
Is anyone else seeing thing?

"U- M- Miss Luna, is that… you?"
I walk over to her and poke her.
"What are you doing here?"

Felfire [Necromancer] 354510

"The wave. Look at it."

Light Heart [Warlord] 354511

"Please, have some faith in me."

"Mister Curry, I still require that Hydra's heart. Do not forget about that."

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 354512

"If you've still got your poison trick, I'm certain it would notice if the water was drained somehow."

Spring Water [Charlatan] 354513

"I don't really understand but… alright."

Wf+6 354514

No one else is seeing this thing.


Chip(DD knight) 354515

I raise my paws in defeat.
"Just this once."

Then lean down and whisper.
"Dont tell the others."

Wf+6 354516

Wark gives a slow nod.

Emrille [Gunslinger] 354518

"Again, why is it good for us if that falls and we are still inside?"

I smirk.
"That might cost you, but we'll see~"

Light Heart [Warlord] 354519

Felfire [Necromancer] 354520

"Think about what's behind it."

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 354521

"Miss Spring, you don't understand. If seaponies could talk all along, even if it's with the aid of magic… I've done horrible things. That armor I was wearing earlier was made from seaponies I've eaten!"

Emrille [Gunslinger] 354522


Chip(DD knight) 354523

I look down.
No pay
Must stay loyal to one pony
Must pay the other.
Am I going soft.

I just sit there for a moment to relax and let the stress flow free out of my system.

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 354524

I walk over to Chip and Emrille.
"Arguing gems?"

Felfire [Necromancer] 354525

"My guess is the temple."

Spring Water [Charlatan] 354526

I cock my head
"They still tried to kill us… They're animals."

Light Heart [Warlord] 354527

"We could renegotiate our terms if you wish. I am a reasonable mare after all."

Wf+6 354528

The seapony mare cringes.

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 354529

I'll shake my head.
"No, you don't understand. If they understand speech, if they can talk… If they can reason… I could have… Oh Luna, what have I done?"
And I'll just sorta sit there for a bit.

Chip(DD knight) 354530

"wha wha?!" I stumbled to my side as Lightheart suddenly appear out of thin air.

"Where have you come from?"

Emrille [Gunslinger] 354531

"I'll take that as a yes."

"Nah, we're good. Damn, you were fast though. You snatched a few of them too."

"I'm content with being here undisturbed for the moment."

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 354533

"Relax. Seapony taste good. Taste like pony fish."

Felfire [Necromancer] 354534

Walk over to him and place a bony hoof on his shoulder.
"Welcome to the group pal. Me and the gryphon have seats for you."

Light Heart [Warlord] 354535

"I have been trying to grab your attention several times, mister Chip."


Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 354536

I cackle.
"Very fast."

Curry [Male Unicorn ?????] 354537

"That's not the… that's not the point!"

Seekkill [Dark Hunter] 354538

"What is point. Seapony taste good. Eat seapony."

Spring Water [Charlatan] 354539

I frown and approach her
"You claim to worship Luna?"

"You didn't know. They tried to kill you, you killed them instead. It's not your fault. Just self-defense."

Felfire [Necromancer] 354540

"Hey seekkill. I can get you a whole pony on the ship for those 3 gems."

Emrille [Gunslinger] 354541

"Yeah… you sure you need those gems?"

Wf+6 354542

She nods. Tears mix with the blood and mud all over her face. There is a terrible sense of muteness about her.
