    Default Red Hoof of Doom OOC


    Equestria is a big place, and while Ponyville might be idyllic, the lands at the edge of the map are still hard places for hard-working ponies. You are a group of friends, most recently from Canterlot, working for the Princesses. Ordinarily it's a cush job; that Twilight Sparkle filly and her friends take all the hard missions, like that thing with Discord last year, and that bit with the wedding. But they're out doing something involving crystals and family reunions you aren't really sure what and something's come up.

    Out in the frontier, beyond Stalliongrad, where Equestria butts up against dragon lands, the gryphon kingdoms, and even the plains of the nomad zebra, a thriving settlement stands: the town of Bridle. Rumors have reached Celestia's ears of trouble in the mountains: stirrings among the younger dragons, trouble with the old giants of the woods, unrest in the gryphon kingdom and worse. Luna's visions are far more troubling: strange, bipedal creatures, bellowing in rage, united under the banner of a red clawed hand.

    You are Bridle's only hope, for if it falls, Stalliongrad is soon to follow... and with it, perhaps, all Equestria.

    Welcome to the Red Hoof of Doom.


    Campaign Notes
    • On Character CreationCharacters must be made using Dungeons and Dragons: Friendship is Magic; any character type that is not an Earth Pony, Unicorn Pony or Pegasus Pony needs to fit the setting.
    • On Favored Classes: No experience point penalty for multiclassing. We'll use the PF rule: levels in your favored class grant either an extra hit point or an extra skill point per level.
    • On Paladins: Won't fall for associating with Evil people. Will fall for failing to attempt to prevent an Evil act. Celestia, Luna, and Princess Platinum all accept traditional Paladins. Commander Hurricane, Chancellor Puddinghead, and Celestia all accept Paladins of Freedom. Nightmare Moon, Chrysalis, and Princess Platinum all accept Paladins of Tyranny. Paladins of Slaughter do not play well with others and you should feel bad for wanting to play one in this game.
    • On Preferences: I would prefer players who have never finished the module Red Hand of Doom. I prefer characters with ties to each other, who fit the setting. I prefer players who are interested in having fun. I prefer roleplaying over not. Things to think about.
    • On The Unicorn Versatile Mark Feat: This lets you cast a 2nd-level spell as your cutie mark (interacting normally with Enduring Mark). You make take this feat multiple times; each time it increases the spell level by one (to a maximum of 9th level). A wizard may take this as a wizard bonus feat. Be advised: your Cutie Mark spell is an SLA.
    • On Languages:
      • Equestrian Common.
      • Gryphon Dwarven
      • Zebra Halfling
      • Whitetail Elven
      • High Equestrian Celestial
      • Discordian Abyssal
      • Tartaran Infernal
      • Giant, Druidic, and Elemental languages are the same.
    • It's Dangerous To Go Alone: Take This! Pony Creator. Because you'll probably want us to know what your pony looks like.

    Background

    Show
    The frontier can be a dangerous place. Bookend was born to an adventurer from Whinnychester, Trailblaze Beacon, who immigrated to Equestria and settled down in Bridle, a town that offered infinite opportunities for one with an outdoorsy inclination. His father is Rock, an warrior from the Painted Hoof tribe nearby that Bridle had a tenous relationship too; They came into some conflict occasionally but also sometimes helped one another. Trailblaze accidentally (if happily) married Rock, which would go a long way to helping resolve the issues the natives had with the townspeople, and vice-versa.

    Trailblaze and Rock were both independant ponies and refused to give up their cultures. Instead they decided to live seperately but to meet frequently. Both were fairly happy with the arrangement, though it meant there were some times they were seperated from the other half of their families, and that was always sad. Bookend was raised mostly by his mother, learning how to track and survive in the wilderness. His father raised Breeze, Bookend's little sister, who found she had a talent for Speaking to the Earth and is currently the apprentice of the tribe's shaman.

    As a child, Bookend was very boisterous. His father was the Strongest Pony EVER and he thought that his father would approve of him if he grew strong enough. Of course, when Rock found out he chastised his son, telling him that some things are more important than strength. Which seemed silly to Book at the time. However, Bookend soon came to realize that what he would shrug off other ponies would get hurt from. He looked around and saw that none of the foals around him his age were as big or strong as he was, and he remembered how his father had handled Trailblaze and Breeze with gentleness, and began to understand.

    While Bookend was still a colt, he and a friend got into trouble. Dusty Tomes had borrowed a book from a traveling trader some about ruins near Bridle, and rather than let his friend go alone, Bookend followed him. It wasn't anything dangerous (only an old tavern) but the book accidently got dirty and they were forced to buy it from the trader. Dusty was over the moon about his new cutie mark, and deciphered the book for Bookend. Bookend read it, at first reluctantly and then with more enthusiasm as the story got more interesting. When he finally put it down, he found he had another book - a book on his flank. He finally realized how much he'd enjoyed reading, and decided to find some more books.

    It wasn't long until Bookend had read every book in Bridle. He heard stories from his mom about an old friend who worked in a place that had an endless number of books, and Bookend became determined to see it. He started working and saving up, slowly getting enough money to buy a ticket to Canterlot. He couldn't get much work done when he stayed with his father, as they didn't seem to use currency anyway, but his father taught him other things, such as how to defend himself - and, if necessary, those he cared for.

    At the age of 17, Bookend got enough money for a one-way ticket to Canterlot. On his first day there, Bookend volunteered at the library. After a period of training, Bookend was given the task of guiding patrons through the treacherous Lost Catacombs of Fiction. He learned quickly, and impressed the head librarian with his skill in navigating the Dewey Decimal system, his strength to carry even the heaviest tomes, and his ability to not be killed by deathtraps. During that time, Bookend made lots of friends; regulars at the library became familiar with the sound of Bookend's hooves as he fled from the Colossal Spitball. He never did figure out how to get around that trap.

    Bookend eventually left Canterlot and returned to Bridle with some friends met during his stay there, under orders from Princss Celestia. One day Bookend hopes to open Bridle's first library. But the frontier is a dangerous place...

    Appearance: Bookend's Cutie mark takes the form of a closed green book.

    Benefit: Filling in the Blanks grants Bookend a +6 bonus to Decipher Script and Forgery checks as long as he has a piece of the document to be forged. Bookend is great at teasing out the hidden meanings behind the words, and has more luck finding a book to grant him a competency bonus to Knowledge checks.
    Whinnychester
    Spoiler
    Show
    A long time ago, before Equestria was created, Earth Ponies, Unicorns, and Pegasi were seperated into tribes, kept apart by hatred. The story of their reconciling is told every year on Hearth's Warming Eve, the story of the founding of Equestria.

    Yet the three leaders credited with coming together to form this kingdom were not the only ones sent by their respective tribes. A small entourage was dispatched from the Earth Pony tribe in the opposite direction from Chancellor Puddinghead. They found suitable land, but land that was already inhabited. Another tribe of Earth Ponies, more primative than the settlers and who had never had contact with outsiders, lived there and it wasn't long before conflict threatened to rear it's head.

    In order to forestall war, Jewel Stonecrown, the young shamaness of the primitive tribe, offered the newcomers a contest by champion. The newcomers had seen the primitive tribes strength, and almost to the last pony denied the offer. Except for one pony, an unassuming young construction worker named Mallet Ivycoat. Mallet accepted the challenge, despite protests and orders not to, and met the primitive tribes champion in single combat. The other tribes champion was a beast of a pony known as Redeye Rockjaw, and the strongest stallion in the entire tribe. Mallet's strength couldn't compare - but his mind could. Mallet was nimbler and smarter than the hulking pony and, after a long and grueling battle, was ultimately victorious. The primitive tribe was certain he had cheated, but the shamaness had fallen in love with Mallet's courage. She walked out onto the battlefield and, to the surprise of every pony of both tribes, offered her own hoof in marriage to the hero. Mallet saw her beauty and kindness, and agreed.

    The two tribes lived in close proximity, the primitive tribe in their tents and the settlers behind the walls of Whinnychester. Over generations, they intermingled, as ponies of both sides left their tribes to live amongst the other. The city expanded ever onward, ruled by the descendants of Ivycoat and Stonecrown, until eventually the rest of the tribe was absorbed into the city. Queen Lapis Ivycoat-Stonecrown was the last ruler to use the full names of both founders; her son became King Granite Ivycrown, finding it fitting for the green-hued crown he had had created. His descendants have used that surname for centuries.

    Jewel Stonecrown tied her people to the land, and her mere existance - like the existance of her mother and grandmother before her - caused the land to be fruitful, or so the legends say. Almost all inhabitants of Whinnychester believe in this tale, and that the Monarch's since have inherited her bond to the land. They believe that as long as their Queen remains healthy, aslong as the blood of Stonecrown still flows through the veins of whoever wears the Crown of Ivy, the land will flourish.

    Despite it's origins as an Earth Pony city, Whinnychester has long since integrated ponies of all types into it's kingdom. The current Monarch is Queen Gilding Ivycrown II. The Monarchs have very little responsibilities beyond existing, for the good of the land. Yet the aging Queen is most beloved of her subjects. So beloved in fact, that the recent drop in harvest has more ponies worried about the Queen's health than the kingdom's well being. Truthfully, the Parliament is more involved in the governing of the kingdom, yet the Queen is more than just a well-to-do Earth Pony, she's a figurehead, a symbol of the entire kingdom, it's most recognizable face.

They carried on for several years, before they left Whinnychester to the shock of all and moved to Equestria. It's uncertain as to the reason behind this, but the group did not survive the move. On arriving in Equestria, most of Verax Oculus went their seperate ways.

    Being as Bridle's current write-up has only a Temple of Celestia and a Temple of Luna, you're probably the head of the Parthenon of Commander Hurricane. This is a recent position, and probably the reason you've ended up in Bridle.

    We'll work out similar things for everyone else in the Bridle crowd: for instance, Lord Emeraldcoat may be well-known as an eccentric old inventor. I'll work on developing the city for you all this week.

    Dusty Tomes was born in Vanhoover to a unicorn couple, and spent most of his childhood there, but didn't earn his cutie mark until he and his family moved to Bridle. Dusty was raised more as a unicorn than as an earth pony, and as such showed a more scholarly bent then was usual. As he was late in getting his mark, he tried many things to find his talent before moving to Bridle (not in any fashion related to a certain trio we know, ), leading to him becoming unusually skilled in a wide variety of things.

    Soon after moving to Bridle, while exploring and playing in the forest near the town, Dusty Tomes stumbled across a ruin from centuries ago. The ruins and their strange writings entranced Dusty, and he spent the next week trying to decipher their secrets .He borrowed a book from a trader, while he was there he got help from his new friend Bookend. The two of them managed to make their way through the ruins and find the secret of the ruins (it was only an old tavern, albeit one from before the town was their). The two of them earned their marks that day, Dusty finding an open book and brush on his flank. Dusty found he had a liking for such things, and later became an archaeologist.

    During Dusty's years as an archaeologist, he traveled all over Equestria and beyond. He has traveled to Zebrica, as well as the Griffon lands. He hasn't made any finds that make him famous, but he has done enough to get him known in the archaeologist community. Occasionally while working he has employed the services of a unicorn named Seismic Fault, a geomancy specialist who has aided him in clearing collapsed tunnels and the like. He has recently traveled to Canterlot, wanting to access the great library for research, also o meet up with his old friend Bookend.

    As an aside, he has a mixed view of the Daring Do series, as while he acknowledges that they are decent literature, he scoffs at the dramatization. The last tomb he explored hardly had any deathtraps.

    Born in Canterlot, Charcoal was quite an unusual child. He always was full of energy, and despite being an unicorn he displayed little to no magical talent. While other babies would go through short surges of magic , he never did anything of the sort. Of course, his parents simply chalked it up to him being a late bloomer, and raised him lovingly.

    When he entered magic kindergarten, things became more complicated. His lack of magic quickly became a problem, as he failed even the easiest of tests, and even magical theory just never seemed to be doable to him. He quickly became a laughing stock and he was relentlessly teased for his failures. Still, Charcoal was not one to just give up, and so he kept on studying, determined to become a good magician. He spent most of his free time in the library, reading through tome after tome, yet none of it seemed to find its way into his head. Perhaps he wouldn't even have made it through magical primary school, had he not found that book.

    It was Charcoals second year in primary, and he still hadn't created as much as a spark. Needless to say, still being a blank flank and being unable to use any magic was detrimental to his popularity. Desperate for a solution, he asked his parents if he could search for some books on magic in the old possesions of his late grandfather, Brimstone. Brimstone had been a mighty wizard in his lifetime, and Charcoal always had wondered why he had inherited none of his talent. Still, if there was a solution to be found in the possesions of the old stallion, Charcoal was willng to find it. And find it he did.

    It was a fairly thick book, with as compelling as it was confusing. "The Calling of those who help us". A strange title, for sure, and it peaked his curiosity. And so, peaking inside, he found the solution to his problems. And the start to some new ones.
    It had been a book on the summoning of demons and other creatures, on ways to make pacts with them, and even how they could be helpful to anypony. For some reason, Charcoal felt compelled to try some of the magical rituals described in the book. They would need him to perform magic to work, and he was very likely that he would simply screw them up. Perhaps it was his desperation, or the fact that it would turn out to be his calling, but either way, he tried it.

    On the next day, Charcoal showed up in school with his cutie mark earned. And things changed. He suddenly seemed to have mastered the basic spells over night, while his behaviour had become irratic and random. One day he would be the most polite and friendly unicorn you ever had met, and the next he would yell at somepony just for coming close to him. Over time, his behaviour became closer to how it was before, but it still was a jarring experience for all who witnessed it. Questions were asked, of course, but Charcoal simply claimed to be a late bloomer, who had discovered that his special talent actually had been magic all along.

    After this, Charcoal became more relaxed in his studies, and spend most of his time making friends and socialising. Still, he managed to do well in every test he was given, and he soon was given a chance to apply to Celestia's school for gifted unicorns. Of course, he managed to pass the theoretical part of the tests easily. Magical theory had become easy since he had learned how to actually do it. Of course, the practical part came as a surprise to him. It was a simple test, all he had to do was to become invisible for at least ten seconds. Easy enough for the kind of unicorns that were expected to join Celestia's school, it was expected that Charcoal would just try to cast a spell, and either fail or succeed.

    No one expected him to summon a demon, bind him to his soul, and then use him to turn invisible. All without losing control. Needless to say, his application was accepted. Now studying at the greatest academy in all of Equestria, with full access to the Canterlot Archieves and all their books and tomes on magic and the occult, he quickly made more progress, becoming one of the most promissing students in the field of summoning and binding of powerful creatures. All without much effort on his part, of course.

    +2 on all knowledge checks related to summoning. Charcoal is extremely talented in all matters related to the calling and binding of extradimensional creatures. He knows more about the needed rituals and circles than most other ponies.

    Show
    Sapphire was born to a unicorn couple that had been devout followers of Luna while she was imprisoned. Her parents had fallen in with the wrong crowd, however, and were taken when a small cult of Nightmare Moon was revealed to have infiltrated their group. Sapphire was raised by her aunt, Paige Turner the librarian in Canterlot, who was also a follower of Luna.

    She had fallen in love with the story of Luna, and knew just how the story of Luna's release would end. She was so sure, that even as a little filly her cutie mark appeared, a shield and moon and she knew she would act as a defender of Luna. After she was proven correct, and Luna was restored, her aunt and Sapphire worked hard to give Luna the following she deserved.

    But not all followings are good, and Sapphire was nearly taken by the same cult that had taken her parents and had infiltrated her followers as well. After that Sapphire knew that Luna would never be safe from Nightmare Moon or her cults, so learned to find the hidden cults in the dark. It's not her full time job, but another piece of her personal code to stop innocent ponies doing what they love from being harmed by bad ponies who try to masquerade among the good.

    History is also a powerful teacher, and Sapphire doesn't wish it to repeat itself, so every night she goes out and frolics happily in the moonlight so Luna will see that ponies are happy under her watch as well. It may have earned her special treatment, as she was summoned and sent to Bridle at Luna's request to help with the situation there.

    Sorry I haven't posted in a while, I've been busy with college and it looks like I missed out on a lot of things. So just a few updates on my thoughts.

    Not a whole lot has been altered about my character, save a small snippet of her personality and a cutie mark.

    The whole cult idea, I wanted to do something different than your standard "We'll kill you all because we're evil" cult that's much too prevelant. My idea was that they were an offshoot of Luna's religion who had an Our God Right or Wrong mentality, and so supported her descent into Nightmare Moon (or the evil spirit which possessed her, whether they actually knew it or not).

    Their focus was around the Ruin aspect of Nightmare Moon, namely that Eternal Night would bring about a slow, cold death. They don't actually have any particular issues with the world, but hay, God wants it so God's going to get it. They are Lawful Neutral after all.

    After a thousand years though, confusion arose as to who exactly they were worshiping all those years which eventually resulted in their split, with the Nightmare Moon faction still searching for a way to bring about the apocalypse. So either this cult isn't mainstream, or I'll have to rethink the concept a little. It probably won't come up much in this adventure anyhow, its all just background flavor and I'm not going to worry about it.

    Turns out I'll also need some connection hooks with some of you guys. I'm not sure how far it will get with the deadline a scant two days away, but I'm still willing to set up some connection hooks.

    Childhood

    Show
    The Noir family were a strange group of ponies. They never actually did anything wrong, and not particularly unfriendly, but there was something very strange about them. They stayed up for most of the night, and slept during the day, and there was something very unsettling about the way they said "Good Night". It was as though they very sincerely did wish you a good night, but did not expect you to wake up again.

    During the train ride to Bridle, there was a mare with a dark coat who almost always had a serious look to her. Possibly even military trained. She did not talk all that much, but after a lot of prodding on your part she opens up a little and seems very knowledgeable on all things night and dark related. She was most likely some guard or knight of Luna.

    "The only mistake one can make is not to question things they would promise you is the truth."

    Sojourner, so named for his misplacement in a far away land, is a Unicorn halfbreed, born to the parentage of Tipsy Trick and the Zebra Chieftainess Wild Winds.
    Sojourner's father, a baker, just so happened to be the friend of a famous explorer, Compass Rose. Together, they went on many marvelous adventures. On one of these adventures (Deep into the Equestrian Jungles) Tipsy met Wild, and of that meeting came a child.
    Growing up, Sojourner always felt isolated from his peers. Thanks to the strange ways of pony genetics, he ended up completely like his father, a unicorn in almost every way (save his eyes, which maintain a rather Zebraesque shape.) This by itself was enough to isolate him, but take being the son of the chieftainess, and unusually clumsy at that, and you had the perfect mixture for a disaster.
    Eventually, his father and Compass Rose returned, finding Wild Winds with his child. Promptly, she left Sojourner with them and told Tipsy to take him, saying nothing more than 'He belongs with you.'
    Moving to Manehattern, Sojourner found himself at the lowest point in his life. Listening to his father drone all day long, trying to get Sojourner into the 'family business' of pastry baking, Sojourner found himself spending more and more time at the mansion of Compass Rose. Listening to her stories of adventure enthralled the young unicorn, who would take her periods of napping to sneak peaks into her vast book collection.
    One day, while searching through her library, he finally discovered his calling; through a combination of Tao philosophy, and the stories of grand adventure and peril, He decided the only way to make his life perfect was to put everything in balance. He would explore the world, learning everything he could, and learning how to balance both himself and others in the Eternal Balance, and make them whole and without pain.


    Cutie Mark:
    Spoiler
    Show


    Sojourner's cutie mark is the YinYang, a representation of his Spiritual awareness and desire to improve the lives of others.

    Mechanical Benefits: +2 to concentration checks. +2 to knowledge checks involving Aligned creatures, and a +2 bonus to spellcraft checks when identifying spells with elemental descriptors.

    Spell: Lesser Restoration. Sojourner can naturally insure a balance in other's, returning them to the state they are supposed to exist in, rather than the unbalanced, imperfect state instilled into them by physical force or spell.


    Memories:
    Spoiler
    Show

    ...I remember the first time I Went hunting on the plains. I had just barely grown old enough to participate, and despite the protests of many of my so called friends, I was given the role of honor as the hunt leader. I had never been happier than I was on that day, watching my plan come to fruition as we finished off the beast with a well placed spear....

    ...The smell of burning pastry will always mark the first time I tried to bake something. That oven will never be the same again. I still think the thing is burping up purple smoke. My father isn't happy with me about that one. though, he isn't happy with me about a lot of things...

    ...Compass. She was an amazing Filly. Her adventures from the tombs of the Egyptian kings to the ancient Citadel's of the far East kingdoms still enrapture me. I just hope I can replicate her deeds one of these days...


    Personality:
    Spoiler
    Show

    Sojourner is generally very reserved and quiet, preferring to view things from an outside perspective, without bias or other input: he simply wishes to create and support his own worldview based on his experiences. If you didn't know him, he could almost seem cruelly disinterested, his voice sometimes seeming passionless and robotic, his descriptions void of emotional outburst and opinion.
    He always does his best to be polite, everywhere from casual conversation to heated discussion, always looking to see from all points of view, rarely giving his own view on a subject unless coerced. Though sometimes he can seem lazy, he enjoys good, hard work when he can finally get around to actually doing something.
    He can occasionally seem self centered, especially when connecting current conversation to some past memory or experience.

    Those who know him see the mask removed: a shy but eager learner, looking to learn everything he can about the world and how it works. A jokester, with an often twisted sense of humor. A loyal ally, willing to stand up for his friends, whether protecting their physical forms or their beliefs. And an accepting pony, looking to understand, rather than challenge the way other's work.

    His Story
    Spoiler
    Show
    The good Lord Emeraldcoat, one of the noble Unicorns of Canterlot, and a powerful wizard in his own right. Though lacking in the raw power of Twilight Sparkle, Emeraldcoat possessed a wide breadth of knowledge, and his special talent-as represented by his gear-shaped Cuite Mark-was innovation. He was a magical experimentor, finding new ways to combine the magical abilities natural to the Unicorns. Few ponies communicated on a regular basis with Emeraldcoat, because of how involved he was with his research.

    Except for his assistant, Onyx Mane. She was almost as brilliant as him, though much more grounded in reality. The two had begun to form a small romance, and Emeraldcoat was very happy. Until an accident in the lab one day caused an explosion, killing Onyx.

    Emeraldcoat was devastated. The only pony he truly felt was his equal was gone forever. Desperate, he threw himself into his research, trying to find something, anything that would bring Onyx back to him. Attempting increasingly complex formulae and calculations, Emeraldcoat went through failure after failure. Eventually, everypony just let him be. A mad unicorn in his ivory tower.

    No one, not even Princess Celestia, thought he might succeed.

    No one knows quite how he did it, except maybe Emeraldcoat himself-and if he does know, he isn't telling. But one thing is known for sure. Emeraldcoat only made it partway. Onyx didn't want to be brought back, and so Emeraldcoat could only give life to her hooves once more. Onyx's mind, what Emeraldcoat truly wanted to have again, was forever beyond his reach. In its place, something else entered Onyx's freshly reanimated body. Once again, no one is entirely positive what now controls Onyx's body, but whatever it was, it was powerful, and it was destructive.

    The damage to Emeraldcoat's home was immense, and the dark pony he created rampaged for a time through Canterlot, before riding away towards the Zebra Plains. Emeraldcoat was swiftly captured by the royal guard, and brought before Princess Celestia for judgement. For pursuing magic beyond the bounds of pony law, and unleashing something from beyond the sphere of Equestria, Emeraldcoat's horn was broken, his magic stripped from him, until such a time as he could learn humility. He was sent back to his broken home, to think on the devastation his arrogance had wrought.

    But Emeraldcoat did not learn. In his anger, he refused the offers of other ponies to heal his broken horn. Instead of returning to magic, Emeraldcoat continued his quest, through another medium. Celestia may have taken his magic, but she could never take his mind. So, Emeraldcoat began to experiment with scientific methods, applying his intellect to understanding the laws of the universe. His study into this new power is yet young, and though he has made much progress(even learning enough to rebuild his home even stronger than before), he is far, far away from being able to bring back his beloved Onyx Mane.

    Even now, Emeraldcoat carries his broken horn in a vial around his neck, to remind him of his purpose, though he has begun experimenting with attatching various mechanical contraptions to the broken stump in order to control their operation with his mind. In the time since his fall, Lord Emeraldcoat has regained a vast amount of respect, especially amongst ponies of an academic inclination. Celestia has chosen him to join the team sent to Bridle, perhaps because of his unique perspective, and perhaps because she sees an opportunity for his redemption.

    Emeraldcoat is reserved and proper, and not prone to exaggerated shows of emotion. He has earned a reputation of being aloof and unresponsive to overtures of friendship-a reputation rightfully earned. But Emeraldcoat greatly respects intellectual ability, and if somepony can prove themselves an able thinker, they will find that Emeraldcoat can be a valuable and insightful companion-if still ultimately one who is distant.

    However, make no mistake. Emeraldcoat has no use for old traditions and outdated restrictions. He respects the law only because it is upheld by one who has shown him mercy in the past, and if Princess Celestia were not in power, it is unlikely Emeraldcoat would give two figs about the laws of Equestria. Emeraldcoat's only laws are those he discovers by observation. The laws by which reality operates are his code, and he is dedicated to understanding exactly what that means.


    A Strange Pony
    Spoiler
    Show
    Onyx Mane was one of your friends growing up, and was always a rather inquisitive pony. Where others were satisfied knowing that something worked, Onyx wanted to know how it worked, wanted to understand what lay behind this world. Her becoming the Lord Emeraldcoat's research assistant was only natural. On occasion, you visited her in the Lord's castle, and while Emeraldcoat was always a gracious and proper host, you could never shake the feeling that there was something a little off about him. He was quite a strange pony.


    A Strange Request
    Spoiler
    Show
    No one blamed Emeraldcoat for the accident. Investigation by the royal guard revealed the explosion was pure accident. Onyx had been mixing together spell agents, and some had spilled, triggering a chain reaction. No one blamed Emeraldcoat, except perhaps Emeraldcoat himself.
    In any case, he summoned you to his castle, requesting that you gather some odd spell components for him. Alchemic items from the zebras of the plains, rare bugs from the Everfree Forest, and strangest of all, rare onyx stone from the mines protected by the griffons. He refuses to tell you why he needs these ingridients outright, only that they are for a new experiment. He promises to pay handsomly.


    A New Path - Claimed by Bookend
    Spoiler
    Show
    Since the incident, Lord Emeraldcoat has slowly been making his way back into regular pony society. Despite the oddness of speaking to a unicorn with a broken horn, Emeraldcoat's mind is strong and very adept at figuring out new ideas. Perhaps you had a theory that needed working out, or needed him to analyze some new discovery, or you had heard of his work in scientific discoveries, and wished to hear these new ideas for yourself. In any case, Lord Emeraldcoat's raw intellect was plain to see, and it seems that he has begun to move past his previous obsession with bringing Onyx Mane back-without her body, the quest would be hopeless, anyway. Still, Lord Emeraldcoat seems particularly knowledgable in the mechanics of the pony body, and has some skill as a healer.

    Slowly but surely populating Bridle with NPCs. Will do the same thing with Drellin's Ferry, and then I'll be ready to start the adventurers and the Bridle crowd threads.

    I went back to that pony creator thing and put in the pony code, accessory code, and pose code, gave it a background, put it on my desktop, put it on a photobucket account, and put it on the wiki. I walked away from it, and sure enough a few hours later I thought: "I remembered the cutie mark, right?"

    Well, I've made Dusty Tomes' page, but the image does not yet have a cutie mark. A book and brush isn't a common image, and even if I did have one, I'm not sure how well it would work with ponymaker.

    If you can find an image of each, I might be able to ninja in the cutie mark to the image outside of ponymaker.

    Thanks for the offer, but I might just let it slide for now. I have a lot on my plate at the moment. On that note, I should probably be preparing for the IRL game I'm DMing.

    Surprisingly the same thing applies to a crossed spatula and frying pan/skillet.

    If you can find clip art of it and make your character sans cutie mark in ponymaker, I can use Inkscape to squeeze it in.

    Well the clip art I have found for Cordon's cutiemark will suffice but it's not how I described it.

    Edit: I also managed to copy the template from the MLP wikia. I think it mostly works.

    Behold! I have added a picture of Charcoal with his cutie mark. And if I had any skill with photoshop whatsoever, it would even fit the description. Also, I probably should have left out the background. Oh well.
