Basics:
Simply put the number of dice you would like to roll followed by a "d" and then add how many sides you want each die to have. Post rolling requires this in 'quotes' or [Square brackets], and nothing is needed for email rolls.

Email Field Rolling:
You can roll one set of dice from the email field
i.e.
2d20 in the email field will roll 2 20 sided dice

In Post Rolling:
You can roll up to 5 sets of dice from the post field, each set of dice can contain a different number of dice and a different number of sides.
Rolls can be placed anywhere in the post, they must be put in single 'quotes' or [Square brackets]. You can roll up to 6 sets of dice total
i.e.
'3d30' will roll 3 30 sided dice.
[5d10] will roll 5 10 sided dice.

Rachshun keeps his blades spinning as your sword comes at him, the rat grunting as you knock them aside with your sword before delivering another brutal kick to his gut, the cloaked rat coughing out painfully as you send him flying away down the path, making him roll before he tumbles out of his spin, coughing up a bit of blood as he brings himself to stand near where Getta was taken down

Aether's healing magic takes effect and cures Alexis of her minor injuries (7/5), as Rachshun gets back up again.
"Aaaaacgh… ooooow…. urg… what's wrong? They're just playing!" He says as he takes out his daggers, and charges at Alexis once more, "But lemme see if I can cut a few of them off!"

"At any rate, I guess I'm fine to head towards the borders whenever you are. I'm not quite sure what the best way is to find other fallen competitors, Raja was the first one we've met to lose twice…"

A timid fall sun shines above the Great Forest. Far down below near the ground, beneath a golden brown canopy, a caravan, too tiny for even Big Pony eyes makes its way through the bushes.

At the head, riding on a white kitty named Ribbon, is a courageous breezie named Fairweather. Foollowing behind, in a blue tunic with a gear emblem and wearing goggles is the genius tinker breezie Petilia.

They're very close now to their destination, the Big Pony village on the edge of the forest. Their missions is to obtain a Big Pony item of great value. Their contact in the city is an ex-Tinker, a toymaker by the name of Twinklebreeze.

Do you want to talk a bit and get back in the routine before making our way to town?

In an overturned trash can, HHS finds a nice marble bust of a pony. Could be worth a pretty penny, or serve as a makeshift bludgeon.

Your attention is caught by the obsessive whispering – the bees whisper to one another in overlapping languages and dialects, most of which you don't recognize at all, and yet their conversation continues unabated, apparently driven by a central thread of logic exclusive to them. Yet, you are able to pick up a few words here and there. "Another, another, another one, another gift, gift for the wedding, here it comes, here he comes, another, get him, get him, so sweet, let's see it, let's see him inside-out."

From up ahead, you hear a gate slide open, and see a very nervous pony step forward, clutching a set of documents. Upon seeing the ships at the shore, he gasps and breaks into a run…

>>692320
As you walk through the gate, it closes behind you. The city on this side is in just as poor a state of repair as the southern half, The pony immediately starts to panic, upon seeing you follow him, and clutches a set of papers, appearing to be a passport. As he gazes westward, he spies a set of military ships, and with a gasp, breaks into a run toward them…

>After staying together for quite some time in your dreams, you and Luna finally leave to face Tiamat
>You both agree that you must face her in her prison to decrease the amount of lives lost should you fail and give the others a little more time, and prevent her possible escape should you choose to face her outside of the prison
>While Luna discusses this with Celestia, you visit a now healed Lucent with Baron
>Lucent doesn't want either you or Baron to go fight Tiamat, but you all say your goodbyes for you and Baron depart for the prison
>You meet up with Luna in Emperor Halberd's throne room and decide upon the following for your party
>Celestia, Luna, Baron, Pierce, and yourself
>Gold Heart, Thorn, and Halberd are to prepare troops and evacuate the city while you're away to prepare for Tiamat's arrival
>Starswirl will help how he can from outside the prison's maze
>Upon entering the maze, Starswirl helps to lead you to Tiamat's cell and leads her to you
>The final battle has begun

Luna and Celestia are carrying the Chains of Harmony through the air and attempting to restrain Tiamat's movement. Pierce's fireballs and Baron's magic blasts are having little effect on Tiamat, and there's a chance she could shoot another burst of fire again.

There has to be something you can do with the magical power you have. Figuring who you should help first might help you figure out how. The princesses are agile enough to avoid any of Tiamat's physical attacks for now, but you'll have to keep moving if you want to avoid any of her attacks on the ground. You assume her current raging state is the only thing keeping her from using her own magical ability to attempt to harm you much like Tiamat harmed Lucent.

"G-gone?"

You feel weak, your body getting heavier by the second as more of the star's power leaves you.

You stumble forward, wanting to see for yourself what's happened to Baron, and end up falling on Luna for support. Fatigue creeps into your muscles and bones as she carries you toward Celestia, who is carrying Pierce. There, lying on the ground before you, is Baron's body, still and lifeless.

"His magic kept him safe from the heat, but the force of it carried all the way through," Celestia says, fighting back tears.

"He died protecting me," Luna says, tears streaming down her face. "He died protecting me."

She struggles to say the words again, kneeling next to Baron's body and she weeps.

"No one should have to die protecting me."

You roll off of Luna and fall to the ground, unable to hold yourself to her. As Celestia kneels next to Luna and does her best to comfort her, you hear your own voice calling out to you.

>One week later

Baron's funeral service was held in Canterlot where he was given his own stained-glass window as part of the service. Lucent hadn't stopped crying until the day after the service. She was restign on a bench in one of the castle courtyards where they'd given Baron his own statue. Completely free of her armor and looking well-rested, she smiles at you.

"Is Princess Luna still busy?" she asks.

You've only seen bits and pieces of her outside of formal ceremonies, for you, her, Pierce, or Baron, and those moments were small kisses and "I love you"s to let both of you know you were still there for each other. She'd told you on more than one occasion that the two of you were taking a long vacation once things had been thoroughly sorted out.

"I'm glad everyone's doing well," she says and looks back at Baron. "It's gonna get pretty lonely without that grumpy old soldier keeping an eye on me every second of every day. In case you haven't been told already, I'm retiring from the Royal Guard."

 No.692010

"So what's next?" you ask her. "Something that keeps you close by, I hope?"

"Something like that," she says, laughing with her usual bubbly rasp that always reminds you of soda. "I'm gonna travel around Equestria for a while, doing shadow plays for the foals. See if I can't find myself a new home."

"A new home?"

"It's always been somebody and not something," Lucent tells you. "For the longest time it was Baron, and I thought my new one could be you."

Lucent nudges you playfully.

"You've got a nice home to make for yourself and Luna now, though," she says with a sigh.

>>31726979

"Baron made me promise that if anything ever happened to either of us, we'd take care of you."

"That sounds like something he'd do," Lucent smirks. "He knows I can take care of myself, he probably just wants to make sure that if I ever need anything, I don't get left hanging."

"How long before you head out?"

Luna's voice calls out to you from somewhere in the courtyard.

"I think that's my sign," she says with a laugh.

You ruffle her mane for a bit and she wraps you up in the biggest, tightest hug she can muster, nuzzling her head against your chest.

"I'll miss you," she says as she lets go. "I'll write you from the road and make sure to visit so you don't get worried."

Rising to her hooves, she leaps up into the air and flaps her wings.

"Take care of yourself and Luna," she tells you, and then dashes off out of the courtyard.

"I thought I heard voices," Luna says as she appears from behind a bush. "Pierce just left for Taloran. He says that the city and its dragons and ponies are all back to their everyday lives. Starswirl will be keeping a close eye on Tiamat's cell, but he does not think we will be hearing from her any time soon, or ever again."

"At least a thousand years"

"And one thousand after that," she kisses your cheek, "and one thousand after that."

Luna gives you a long and lingering kiss as the two of you sink deeper into the bed and into each others embrace. Neither of you are sure of what tomorrow will bring, what dangers or adventures will be waiting for you, but for now, the least both of you can do is wish for this moment to last forever.

The End.

"Well, Durenwol isn't exactly the most pleasant of places either," she explains. "Prowlers aren't the only monster in the Echoes, and the swamps are a breeding ground for all sorts of nasty things. And Pudding himself isn't exactly one for conversation. Not to mention the swamp itself is easy to get lost in."

She nods in agreement. "We'd probably run afoul of the Mummers if we went that way regardless. Still, I'd rather risk that than walking into the lion's den."

>>691947
She looks at you with confusion. "…Oh, that's right, you weren't here for that. They're a pretty nasty group of bandits that operate in these parts. The party had a run-in with a few of them at the bar yesterday, and they're probably going to be coming after us. So that's going to be fun."

"Not in numbers we don't," she warns. "The Barrens seem to be a mirror to many such places in the outside world. A sort of mishmash of different burial customs. It's just ruins and blasted waste. There's good treasure there, but getting through the Barrens would be hard work."

Hermodur's attitude instantly lightens up as well. "Is THAT all?" Hermodur responds, almost laughing. "I thought this had to do with the inn!"

"My dear Chimera, I am sorry for the confusion. I did not say that such work is beneath ME. On the contrary, elimination of threats and bothers for my Goddess is the entire reason I exist. What I said was that the destruction of vermin was very much beneath Mjolnir."

"And, I stand by that statement. 'Tis a holy weapon bestowed upon me by a most gracious goddess," he says as he holds up his weapon and admires it. "To have it sullied by such base creatures is… borderline blasphemous."

My shoulders fall slack and my crossed arms loosen. I clear my throat, dreadfully aware of how silly I probably look. "Oh. Yeah, I guess that does kind of make sense," I say. "No reason to put a bear trap down to catch mice."

My arms fall to my side and I sigh. "Alright," I say. "I forgive you." Still a dumb brown nosing cat though.

"This is called an elevator," Tantra says learnedly. "Some high-end structures in pony and griffon territories use them to get from one level to another faster."
"Y-yeah, you didn't know that!?" LJ taunts, while his knees knock underneath him.

Tantra makes you all tea to pass the time, including a mug for the maid, who cannot help but take it. Soon enough, the elevator stops, and you exit.

The halls on this floor are more structured like the inside of a tree branch, rounded, with a refreshing scent of bark and foliage. Through circular windows, you can see the murky world below, teeming with unknown life forms and phenomena. Giants roam upon the earth, bodies hidden in mottled fur as black as an abyss, and over the far mountains, a spindly, segmented corpse of a crustacean, a body all made of networking limbs, rots and holds up a chunk of the Beyond, pulled straight from the sky.

But you have no time to watch, as you are ushered onward. You soon enter a long and multi-leveled library that doubles as a herb garden, rich with the scent of soil and books. "Make yourselves at home," the maid drones, before wandering off.
At first it seems like you're the only ones around, but a shuffling of books indicates another presence. Above one shelf, you see a large wizard hat moving around, obscured behind some books.

It was not long after departing the Highlands, mushrooms in tow, that you made landfall in southern Equestria. The wilds between cities, it reminded you a lot of the wilderness in which your old den lay. In many ways you had come full circle, in the most obvious: literally. With your arrival back in Equestria, you have officially circumnavigated the world, meeting all sorts of individuals along the way.

Old Ram MacMeal has called for a meeting - mandatory. Everyone's going to be there, except Professor Steve, who is still working on the filters made from the mushrooms for the final design. That still leaves you, Flapjack, Gunny, and the Ram himself, though.

Critical! With the added weight of Horosha, though, you glide down and land at the giant paw of the diamond dog that looms above you. They seem a lot bigger and scarier when they're ninjas instead of shopkeepers! Fortunately you manage to go unseen, and the dog hurries onward up the mountain trail, leaving the two of you behind, lost in the forest of grass, to catch your breath with a sigh of relief.

Unfortunately all your stuff is soaked. You can't fix Horosha's size until all your gear dries out, that means the two of you are spending the night as two tinies in a scary jungle.

You plug the chip into the navigational panel. It lights up, displaying a lengthy series of coordinates.
"Understood. Planning most direct hyperspeed path to the requested coordinates. … Planning complete." On a nearby screen, a map of the galaxy appears, with a route from your location to Endriga planned out. "Scanning life form as requested." Somewhere on the ship, you hear Moonbeam knock something over in sudden fright. "Scan complete. Analysis: Subject appears to be an ordinary female member of the species Felis silvestris catus. She belongs to the breed colloquially known as Maine Coons, known for their prodigious size, lion-like mane of fur, and hunting skills. No abnormalities detected."
