From your airborne vantage, you can see Aira headed up to the roof. It's large and flat - it could perhaps accommodate a rooftop garden. Based on the wooden remains, it looks as though it once housed a pigeon aviary.

There are a lot of young ponies playing out on the playground, it's hard to pick out any one individual from here.

Kotone
Booking passage south is no difficult matter, but the waters are a different story. The storms that have plagued the Equestrian coast for months continue to rage on, eerily reminding you of Caballeria, though not nearly as intense.

That changed once you got out onto open waters, though. With a terrible squall bearing down on your ship, threatening to prevent access to the coast of the New World and its fast current, the only option was to cut through the great sea… skirting the edge of the Manesian Triangle. It is no surprise that no storm lurks there, for they are infamous doldrums, and many a ship had been lost to ocean madness in the clutches of the Triangle.

By the fourth day of your journey, it has become clear that the wind is quickly fleeing your sails. You know the captain of the trade vessel you're on is planning a meeting with his mates today. Maybe you should try to Persuade him to tell you his plans, or just outright spy on the meeting. You could even send Horosha.

Rhanna
The arc-lamps on the rocket-ship cut out, allowing your eyes to adjust somewhat to the dark. It feels almost like being in space – this whole giant cavern is dark, but filled with star-like pinpricks of light – coming from domiciles and shops. As far as you know, you're in some kind of residential district.

"O-oh… right."

Soon, you're in a Prench design parlor, and getting outfitted with a custom dress. It would pretty much empty out the rest of your cash reserves, so Cumin offers to pay for it. Whether you let him is up to you.

As you are in uptown near the palace, you can see the university clock tower from here. The piping office isn't immediately obvious though. Search?

>>680221
In any case, it doesn't take her long to recognize Cumin in the robe. "The prodigal prince returns! Do you need some more dresses 'for the palace maids'?"

Cumin turns red. "N-no! P-lease, don't! Don't tease me. I, uh… brought you a new customer. I didn't think you would s-spread rumors…"

"Of course not darling. Is he ready for his measurements?"

"S-stop! S-she's my, uh… s-special somepony."

"Oh? This should be fun, then. Come on back."

 No.680369

"Maybe… it's a little disconcerting though… I'm not in the business of hurting anypony, I used to be a nurse."

She gathers herself on the couch and straightens a picture frame housing a bullet on the wall, which had been knocked askew during the shouting.

You wake up early one evening after a long day's sleep. Your room resembles that of any well-to-do mare's except for the lack of windows and mirror, and a coffin instead of a bed. The walls, floor, and ceiling are cut from the bedrock as is the rest of the complex the Twins had constructed when they first took control of the Nature temple. Thanks to you their relationship with the members of the temple is more friendly and less parasitic than it was in the past. Countless rituals allowed you to redeem not only yourself, but the Twins too, in the eyes of Nature. Thanks to this the three of you can enter the temple itself now without risking annihilation and you've even regained your status as a priestess of Nature.
You did not exert yourself much last night so your blood pool is still mostly full, although a unicorn Nature priest is waiting by your coffin in case you want a bite.

She mostly ignores your gaze and starts wolfing down the soup and bread. The mare goes through two more bowls and half a loaf of bread before she finally stops eating. You can tell that she's still scared, but that seems to be her baseline emotional state, rather than fear of you or something specific.
The twins and your followers have stuck around. You can tell by the expressions on the faces of the few paladins and more senior clergy recognize the few Tirekian symbols that have been carved into her body and scared over at points in the past.

"No matter what they told you, you're not a slave or prisoner here." I gesture to the others. "If you need anything please ask someone, if you'd like to leave we can help you do that too, but you're safe here, as long as you'd like." Lean down so I'm facing her more directly.

She has a magenta coat with a neon blue mane and tail. Whatever cutiemark she had as been scared and burned until no hair was left and Tirekian marks were left in their places. She's skinny enough that her ribs stand out, she's dirty, and she stinks.

Time has passed since you both got off the terrible, cursed island where Buck and his raiders spread their terror, but the shadow of their lives and deaths still loom over you.
The loss of many new friends both there and the haunted Ironclad has taken its toll on both of you, mentally and physically, but you are finally safe in the city state of Pontugal, where you get to enjoy the aid and hospitality of the ponies here.

All those years of studying finally paying off.
While it was tough to stay in with all that competition, especially with your social background, you managed to pull it off.
Now you reap the benefits, after your graduation and your degree, you immediately got a job at Los Pegasus Central Hopsital, known to most as Hope Beacon Hospital.
You even got leased an apartment nearby, in a much friendlier neighbourhood and close to work - obviously so you can be called in at any time if there is some sort of emergency.

As you approach on your first day, you see the hustle and bustle around, pegasi pulled wagons landing on top of the large building while earth pony pulled carts carry ponies at the front.
You are supposed to find a conference room so the director of the hospital can greet you before you get to do the intern work - quite dull from the rumors you've heard, with tons of hoofholding to make sure you don't treat anypony on your own without the proper experience.

The World Warp begins to fade away, Arabesque and Allegro finally coming into view. You realize they've been hovering just over your heads the whole time.

Arabesque is giving you a smug grin, lying down on her cloud as she looks down upon you. "Good boy." She demeans.

The duo jump at the sound of Galehaut's voice. "You're in for it now, you are," the first one says with a smirk. "At least we're doing our part. At least I am. I don't want him to kill me."

"…What do you think that'd be like? To be dead?" the second one asks out of nowhere.

"…Probably dull," the first one shrugs. "Dull and full of complaints." He puts on a whiny voice as Timber hurries onwards, joining Galehaut and the others in the cellar. "'The ground's too cold! My grave should be bigger! My bones hurt! Why does he get more worms than I do?' Etcetera."

There's plenty of food of all shapes and sizes to be found, especially dried fish and other meat. Compared to the Resistance or the Disciples, the Shells have a veritable banquet at their fingertips.

>>679170
It doesn't take you long to find it. There is a cupboard in one corner containing dried samples of a fungus of some sort labeled as "Bleeding Jelly". It isn't hard to see why it's called that; Bleeding Jelly is a spongy white shapeless species with several dark red translucent growths on it, giving the impression that it bleeds. It looks repulsive. "That should be it," Lapis says as she looks over, handing you a bag. "Let's take as much as we can carry and get out of here." In the background, you see Kivoda help himself to the cellar's supplies, serving himself some of the wine in a pewter cup. He shudders at the taste of it.

The small tidal cave system known as Alcatel Grotto has been reported to be host to eldritch activity by the locals of the area. Whispers have circulated of shadowy, shapeless figures seen entering the grotto at sundown, and of unearthly wails and screams heard during the witching hours. A group of sellswords from all walks of life have been hired to investigate this grotto and discover the truth behind the rumors - and to put an end to their source, if possible. Who will answer to this call?

You finish off Bulwark, standing victorious for a moment. With surprisingly little fanfare, the world around you begins to vanish, eventually blinding you with a flash of white light as you return to reality. After taking a moment to readjust yourselves to your surroundings, you take off the harnesses and step out. Powder Keg is there to greet you, along with the enemy team. Most of them do not have their equipment with them. Some, like Nevermore and Balgus, look a bit salty at their defeat, but the rest seem to take it fairly well. "Congrats," Powder Keg says with a big grin. "That was a hell of a fight. I thought for sure the other team had it in the bag near the end there, but you really turned it around once Balgus got taken out." Balgus frowns disapprovingly. "And congrats to you two," he says as an aside to Veta and Brimstone. "You're slightly less poor. Or slightly richer. I don't know how much you make." He shrugs.

"Anyway, you're all official competitors now. If you want to go on to do the official tournaments, there is a fee, but you get a discount. If you're interested in doing another round, we can get you sorted into another game mode…" He starts rambling a bit about the logistics of the Arena, and you quickly lose interest. The party, sans Pyrite, are suddenly alerted to a message from Gunther, linking you to a news article about a house fire that broke out overnight on Rona, severely injuring the inhabitants. It was Think Tank's house.

Pyrite hops out of the harness with an excited, dopey grin on his face as he goes over to vigorously congratulate each of the competitors on the fight. He doesn't seem to notice any of the saltiness from Nevermore and Balgus, from the look of it. After he finishes with the enemy team, he canters back over to the rest of the group and excitedly shouts "Awesome job, y'all! Thanks f'r lettin' me tag along with ya in th' arena!"
