1. @axelgunn OOC: It's really cool that entire conversations are occuring on a journey. ^.^ I love actually interacting with characters, rather than simply fast-forwarding between plot points and puzzles. >.> You're awesome.

    1. @forestrain Yeah, I'm having fun being a DM! And you are awesome as well!

      Wednesday, 22-Feb-12 07:20:48 UTC from web
      1. @axelgunn I totally want you DMing my first proper RP ever. xD

        Wednesday, 22-Feb-12 07:21:43 UTC from web
        1. @minti :'D Really??

          Wednesday, 22-Feb-12 07:22:08 UTC from web
          1. @axelgunn Yeah, I'm always afraid of story dieing down cause of me being stupid but you seem to be able to handle that. xD

            Wednesday, 22-Feb-12 07:22:53 UTC from web
            1. @minti Oh don't you worry about that! I can just throw in a random chicken! xD

              Wednesday, 22-Feb-12 07:23:21 UTC from web
              1. @axelgunn ... Don't you dare throw !scootaloo at me. That's not nice.

                Wednesday, 22-Feb-12 07:24:28 UTC from web
                1. @minti But it would make the story exciting!

                  Wednesday, 22-Feb-12 07:24:54 UTC from web
                  1. @axelgunn I'm sure he wouldn't like that. XD

                    Wednesday, 22-Feb-12 07:26:11 UTC from web
                    1. @minti Only one way to find out! :D

                      Wednesday, 22-Feb-12 07:27:14 UTC from web
                      1. @axelgunn ASDF I'd totally let you guys drag me in but, I'm in the middle of finally doing the AtomPub recode to !MintRefresh. The thing I've been procrastinating over for the past two weeks.

                        Wednesday, 22-Feb-12 07:31:53 UTC from web
                        1. @minti Don't worry, I have a flawless plan to bring you in once you're ready!

                          Wednesday, 22-Feb-12 07:32:43 UTC from web
                          1. @axelgunn Okay! Either tonight or tomorrow, depending on if I give up on AtomPub or get it working. xD

                            Wednesday, 22-Feb-12 07:33:29 UTC from web
                            1. @minti Alright! Just let me know!

                              Wednesday, 22-Feb-12 07:35:58 UTC from web
                        2. @minti You can do it! We believe in you!

                          Wednesday, 22-Feb-12 07:32:59 UTC from web
                2. @minti In character, I've mailed you a postcard telling you to stay the buck away from technicolor chickens.

                  Wednesday, 22-Feb-12 07:26:08 UTC from web
      2. @axelgunn OOC: Though sometimes I feel as if I'm not giving you anything to work off of. If I get too stale on you, let me know. ^.^ (It's probably because I'm either trying to discover something in particular, or exploring something to the absolute furthest extent possible.)

        Wednesday, 22-Feb-12 07:22:01 UTC from web
        1. @forestrain Don't worry, I can use some calmness with all the multitasking I'm doing xD

          Wednesday, 22-Feb-12 07:22:37 UTC from web
          1. @axelgunn Cockatrice? Strange things sure do happen around Ponyville quite a lot!

            Wednesday, 22-Feb-12 07:24:13 UTC from web
            1. @forestrain " don't know the half of it." Sweetie Belle said, sighing for a third time as they walk up to a tree that has a door in it.

              Wednesday, 22-Feb-12 07:25:57 UTC from web
              1. @axelgunn *peers up at the library* Seeing this place never gets old... I always thought it might be nice to live in a tree! This is the library, right?

                Wednesday, 22-Feb-12 07:28:48 UTC from web
                1. @forestrain "Yep!" Sweetie Belle said, smiling at you, "This is where Twilight lives! Let's go on in!"

                  Wednesday, 22-Feb-12 07:29:36 UTC from web
                  1. @axelgunn OOC: lmao! Yeah, that's a pretty epic way of putting that. xD

                    Wednesday, 22-Feb-12 07:30:27 UTC from web
                    1. @forestrain I thought so! xD

                      Wednesday, 22-Feb-12 07:30:52 UTC from web
                  2. @axelgunn *opens the door to the library, and stands for a moment, in awe of all the books* Wow... that's... a lot more books than I thought you could stuff in here. Once we get this whole mess sorted out, I may have to see if there's a good fiction section...

                    Wednesday, 22-Feb-12 07:32:27 UTC from web
                    1. @forestrain "Oh hello girls!" a purple unicorn said as she walked around the pile of books in the center of the room, "You caught me in the middle of re-shelving day...Who's this?"

                      Wednesday, 22-Feb-12 07:34:19 UTC from web
                      1. @axelgunn Greetings! *bows* My name is Forest Rain, and this is Icarus. *motions to the blue chicken on his back* We've come to seek your help.

                        Wednesday, 22-Feb-12 07:35:58 UTC from web
                        1. @forestrain "Oh! Well hello Forest! and you too Icarus." Twilight said, giggling as she curtsied to the blue chicken, "What can I help you with?"

                          Wednesday, 22-Feb-12 07:36:53 UTC from web
                          1. @axelgunn I believe we may be cursed. *goes over the entire tale, from finding the strange tree and body, the CMC, the book, and the scroll* I have no idea what this "curse" implies... or how real it even is... but it was enough for somepony to commit murder to try and get away from it. Do you think we may be able to find out something about this? And is there a way to... 'trace' the spell to find the culprit?

                            Wednesday, 22-Feb-12 07:40:10 UTC from web
                            1. @forestrain "Hmmm...well I don't believe there is such things as curses." Twilight says, preoccupied with sorting the books, "But if I've been hearing you correctly I should be able to follow some traces of magic in the air to where the magic user went after casting the spell. But whether or not that pony is the one who killed that poor other pony I do not know."

                              Wednesday, 22-Feb-12 07:42:58 UTC from web
                              1. @axelgunn Perhaps this may help. *produces the book* It appears to be some sort of magical tome... it was glowing when I found it... until I touched it. I don't particularly believe in curses either, but it seemed Icarus was pretty intent on not letting me touch that scroll, and on page 42 of that book, there was a spell specifically referencing the 'curse'.

                                Wednesday, 22-Feb-12 07:48:59 UTC from web
                                1. @forestrain "Hmmm..." Twilight hummed as she contemplated this new information, "I've never seen this book before...Pg. 42 you said?" She flips to page 42 and quickly reads it. "Well...I don't see how it can be a cursed chicken, Icarus doens't seem to be a bad type of chicken...although he is blue..."

                                  Wednesday, 22-Feb-12 07:52:20 UTC from web
                                  1. @axelgunn Yeah, I thought it a bit odd, but I'm not one to judge. *looks at Icarus* He seems quite intelligent for a chicken, and I'm not opposed to a companion... *looks back at Twilight* ...Do you think his coloration might have something to do with a spell of some sort?

                                    Wednesday, 22-Feb-12 07:55:59 UTC from web
                                    1. @forestrain " certainly might." Twilight said as she inspected Icarus, "I'll do a quick examination spell to check though." Her horn glows magenta as a small beam flares over Icarus, disappearing as quickly as it appeared. "No, it's not a spell," she informs you, "This is how he's naturally colored. He may have a special ability though."

                                      Wednesday, 22-Feb-12 07:59:19 UTC from web
                                      1. @axelgunn Special ability? *looks at Icarus* Do you have a special ability you can show us?

                                        Wednesday, 22-Feb-12 08:01:50 UTC from web
                                        1. @forestrain Icarus cocks his head at you and clucks quizzically, hopping down to the floor

                                          Wednesday, 22-Feb-12 08:02:22 UTC from web
                                          1. @axelgunn *peers at Icarus for a few moments, to see if anything happens*

                                            Wednesday, 22-Feb-12 08:06:06 UTC from web
                                            1. @forestrain You stare at Icarus, hoping for some ability to become apparent. Yet nothing happens. Or at least, nothing you can notice yet.

                                              Wednesday, 22-Feb-12 08:07:58 UTC from web
                                              1. @axelgunn Hmm... Guess we'll have to wait and see what you can do. *peers over at the CMC who are attempting to be Cutie Mark Crusader Reshelvers, then looks back to Twilight* Finding anything interesting in that book?

                                                Wednesday, 22-Feb-12 08:12:48 UTC from web
                                                1. @forestrain "Well, alot of the stuff in this book has to do sacrifice...This book is definitely bad news Forest." Twilight informs you. "We should go to the tree. The more time that passes, the less of a trail the magic will leave."

                                                  Wednesday, 22-Feb-12 08:15:03 UTC from web
                                                  1. @axelgunn Sure thing. It's just on the far side of the Whitetail Woods. Are you ready now?

                                                    Wednesday, 22-Feb-12 08:19:40 UTC from web
                                                    1. @forestrain "One second." Twilight says as she runs upstairs, coming back down with a large book in her saddlebags. "Okay, now I'm ready. Let's go"

                                                      Wednesday, 22-Feb-12 08:20:50 UTC from web
                                                      1. @axelgunn *turning to the CMC* Thank you girls ever so much for your help! *leaves the library and starts the journey to the mysterious tree*

                                                        Wednesday, 22-Feb-12 08:21:54 UTC from web
                                                        1. @forestrain You and Twilight leave the CMC in the library (you sure that was smart..?) and begin to trot towards the whitetail woods. Suddenly, there's a pink...something bouncing around and singing

                                                          Wednesday, 22-Feb-12 08:23:34 UTC from web
                                                          1. @axelgunn *notices the pink pony is bouncing towards Twilight* A friend of yours?

                                                            Wednesday, 22-Feb-12 08:26:43 UTC from web
                                                            1. @forestrain "Ah...yeah that's my friend Pinkie Pie," Twilight said, sighing a small sigh, "She's going to want to throw you a party because you're new to Ponyville...This isn't good! We have to get to that tree!"

                                                              Wednesday, 22-Feb-12 08:28:23 UTC from web
                                                              1. @axelgunn A party? Err.. I'm not really one for parties... If you explained the situation, would she understand?

                                                                Wednesday, 22-Feb-12 08:33:14 UTC from web

Wait here." And she walked over to Pinkie to explain the situation.

                                                                  Wednesday, 22-Feb-12 08:34:45 UTC from web

                                                                    Wednesday, 22-Feb-12 08:36:16 UTC from web

                                                                      Wednesday, 22-Feb-12 08:37:56 UTC from web

                                                                        Wednesday, 22-Feb-12 08:38:17 UTC from web

                                                                        Wednesday, 22-Feb-12 08:38:48 UTC from web

                                                                          Wednesday, 22-Feb-12 08:40:03 UTC from web
