Your quest to reclaim the sacred animal statues of Mother Nature is going… well. Could go better, but definitely could be worse! Two statues are already reclaimed, not to mention you have made many allies already. Yet some of those friendships come at the price of powerful enemies being on your tail. Still, nothing could make your willpower to falter, you will collect those statues for Her, one way or another!

On the long caravan north you have time to reflect on the past couple of days.
You are nearing the end of your cadethood at the Paladin Academy of Equestria. All that remains is the dreaded Field Trials. You remember the words of Master Radiant Hope well - "You go now to face your greatest challenge, out in the field. I cannot direct you by hoof any more, but I will be there if you need to ask for guidance. How you complete your trials is up to you. So is the decision of returning home when you are done. All I can say is I hope to see you again."
Thinking back to her voice is calming. She is among the youngest to ever reach the rank of Master in the Paladin Order, known well for her stubborn desire to see the best in everyone. Perhaps that is why you all ended up united under her service and guidance.

The Field Trials are what separates a Cadet from a Paladin - you must go out into the world and prove your devotion to the paladin path. Help others and become renowned as a paragon of the virtues of the Sisters. Then, choose to leave it all behind and return to the academy, where you earn your title of Paladin at last. Many choose to never return, content with the freedom they gain outside the order's fortresses and dormitories. Many others do not survive their trials at all.
Your fate remains to be seen.

You are headed to the northern Crystal Empire, like many others. Equestria seeks a more firm alliance with these strange ponies and their Crystal Queen, and for this purpose has chosen to allow her teachings equal standing among the Paladin Order. Love and compassion form the basis of the Crystal Path, much like how valor and justice form the Sun Path, and vigilance and knowledge the Moon Path. However, those are not concerns of Cadets. You can think of your path once you are full Paladins. For now, you have other things on your mind.

Perhaps talking to your trialmates will help ease some tension.

In this world Drakin are not born, they are made

In the 2nd age since Dolvia's Wrath, Esten has seen decades of uncertain peace. Major powers vie for more control over land where the great dragon's tomb lay. But while armies and assassins march to a tired political tune, adventurers and unaligned desperados scour it's depths.

A pair reaches the tomb, meeting several other adventurers already at it's entrance.

When resolving events, your Offense and Defense numbers are going to be key. If your offense is greater than the event's defense then you successfully resolve whatever blocks your path. You will need to pool your points at certain times in order to overcome an event.

The town is in an uproar! Tribal ponies are going nuts and the ship is already prepared to leave. You don't see Aria or Aira anywhere, though!

The ship worker you spoke to before yells: "If you're coming, get on now! Something's got them madder than Tartarus!"

Lilly
The trip to the plateway is not terribly long. The place is rather unusual, however: there's a large sort of structure, like an office, but it has a long deck looming next to what appears to be a stone path that stretches into the distance, flanked by two metal rails. Ponies are gathering on the deck in anticipation.

"There's expected to be another iron horse in soon - still a sight for many."

Clerics' Egress
This chamber serves as the central entrance to Bright Harbor: all traffic passes through these mighty doors. The front desk is now drenched in blood, a clerk slumped over it. Behind him, a spatter of red runs down a card catalog on a series of shelves and cabinets. Behind the main desk, there are five paths: one stairwell up and down on each side, and a great hall in the center which appears to lead directly into a library. The library is not warmed by the morning sun, firmly secure in the center of the structure. Of the remaining four paths, they are unlabeled, perhaps in an effort to confuse intruders. They are not totally indistinguishable though: the stairs up on each side have banners with symbols (Cumin isn't here to help, roll to identify). The stairs down to the right look slick and damp, and the remaining stairs down on the left are cold and nondescript.

Rolling to identify stuff won't cost you time.

Breezie might be small and frail, but together even the mighty wind forms no obstacle.
All 3 of you try as best as you can to keep together, letting the Breezie magic protect you from the wind.

Fairweather reaches out her hooves and grabs the light blue Breezie named Marrow.
Fargale allows himself a cheer and you look down to see Ribbon looking at both of you with a twinkle in her eyes….

And a little further behind her, the Radan dragging himself in a bloody trail to your attached ropes. With one final grin, he cuts them.

You both and Marrow are suddenly blown away by the wind, tumbling around wildly you feel yourself getting sucked away out of the window.
Tumbling around faster and faster till you don't know what's up, down, left or right.
Darkness surrounds you…surely this is the end….

Selena, Maeda, Rhanna

Dusking. At long last, you have reconvened at Forward Camp: Courage, setting aside your personal duties for a time. Now there is a higher call. Any number of remaining adventurers have rallied at the city for one final push - onto the final tier - the seventh. As the sun falls, the visage of the moon gains purchase. Tonight it serves as an ominous sigil: a crimson moon, red as blood. Could this be what the remaining cultists have been waiting for?

The city itself is decimated. Temples pillaged and looted, there are still many fires raging across the lower tiers. You can see a number of antiquarians venturing down the stairs to the lower city, in hopes of recovering artifacts from the corpse of the Demon of Fives. The lower six tiers are devoid of turmoil: battle has pushed into the siege of the final tier at the top.

Before proceeding, you take a moment to split your earnings from the bounty and loot. You each gained 172 bits. You can also divide up these pirate dice as you see fit:

1d4, 2d7, 1d9, 1d10

Lilly

The cost of travel is terrible, but worse now than ever. The price of a return voyage to New Earth would be 80 bits, which seems a bit more than you paid before. Is it worth it? Or maybe there's another way… some ship headed out in the same general direction, or a ship you could labor on to reduce costs. Maybe the mail office has an offer for a delivery to the new world that would offset costs?

Truly. As you take a moment to collect yourself, you can see that Aria and Aira have vanished from their stage. Hopefully you can meet back safely, although you'll have to be Stealthy about it.

"There are a number of questions still to be answered. Primordial creatures such as the one we hunt are typically very destructive: it is unexpected that in any place where one would be sighted the landscape would go unleveled. To that end, I have arranged a more formal meeting with the local chief of the operations."

Stricture cuts in: "It wasn't easy, either. Normally civilians will give up resistance when they see Inquisition identification, but they've been very resistant. We finally bargained into meeting them away from the worksite itself in one of their offices. Obviously they don't want us poking around."

Wind nods. "We might gain something yet from the meeting, however."

It has been seven years since Stiltson in the high northern docks, the last significant city-state, signed the Unity Agreement: making the Sunlantian Union a truly intimidating force. So far the Opaleyes of Lawforge have not demanded anything more than cooperation with a few safety laws to reduce monster attacks and support in defending other Sunlantis Union members. To ensure that the laws are being followed and help negotiate trading terms for more supplies, the Lawforgians regularly send a caravan to their allies containing a diplomat, a monster expert, and a trading expert in addition to the required guards to even arrive by hoof. It is now the time when they would visit Spiritos, the City of Souls, true home to every mage and old ally to Lawforge: of the first the sign the Unity Agreement even.. however..
The Council of Magi has summoned three experts of their own in concern of this pending arrival, sending them each and urgent summons to the city. Its gates open and its common ponies wandering around normally, but the Council guards certainly seemed anxious when they greeted you and escorted you inside the meeting hall, seats for all ten representatives on one side of their grand table decorated with a shimmering cloth, empty plates and seats for four visitors on the opposite. You might expect them all to be filled but, of course, only one of the Magi was there to meet you. Typical Wizards, only being where they want to. The old crystal pony doesn't smile, but simply nods under his beard. "I see you are as timely as your reputations let on. I am Blaze, the Magi of Elements, I trust that the the Magi of Illusion's message was at least basically informative about the situation?"
You know that they are having a problem with some 'over zealous' wizards doing 'dangerous and unstable' spells which 'may need the attention of a monster slayer'

The snow is coming. It'll bring a lot more Diamond Dog attacks.

You are stationed in the modest town of Twente, home to a decent sized Magic Academy supplying goods to your forces against the Diamond Dog hordes. While your group has brought in plenty of supplies, you can still see the weariness in the eyes of the civilians, the constant attacks and ceaseless production makes it hard to rest.

But for now, you have a few moments to yourself, at least during this afternoon break. Several other Equines are busy working on fortifications, while a few merchants sell what food and candies they can to liven up spirits in town. Several loud noises can be heard coming from the nearby Academy.

The tunnel connects to a massive cavern. It's so long and large that the darkness hides most of it, except for what looks like a hotel overwatching a cliff. It is angled a bit to the side, and the piano music adds an occasional banging to it.

It has been a long and relatively quiet flight to the edge of the plains. You managed to avoid towns on your chosen route. You've been in the right area since last night but, Its late afternoon before spot what looks like stone buildings covered in moss, and washed over by the river water a few times judging by the discoloration. You land your ship nearby, anchoring it down to a particularly heavy boulder.
