Zebulon adjusted his glasses. His services as healer to be spent healing a dragon that could barely form a thought, a bold hippogriff, a mental case and a headstrong Griffin? Work was work.

"Far worse have come before these eyes, I say."

OOC: Dang, Zebulon is turning into a tool.

Howling a dragon, 2 hippogriffs and a mental case?
Sounds legit!

Anyway, Dextor isn't an idiot. He just sometimes blurts out the wrong words at the wrong time when his thought process runs wild.


Upon hearing Cheese Wheel ask the pertinent question that has been on everypony's mind, Dextor turned his attention towards the blue unicorn once more.

OOC: Yeah, but Zebulon doesn't know that and is making an assumption based on what little he knows of Dextor.

As the party walks through the base, several ponies in the black outfits hurry from place to place, looking quite harried; speak with each other urgently in whispers; or train in flying, magic, and combat against Changeling dummies. Most of the ponies take a brief moment to salute at Starlight before moving on with their work. Many of the pegasi have bat wings instead of normal feathers. There aren't many non-ponies here; this due to the fact that Equestria is mostly ponies. A female minotaur can be seen sawing some damaged outfits, however, and there are a couple of buffalo sparring with each other. The base is metal, like the pipes that lead to the base, and is lit only dimly, reflecting off of the black walls. Silver moons or stars are painted on every door the group passes.

Cardbo wrote:"So moving on. Ms, Starlight, do you have anything in particular you want us to investigate?

"Several possibilities," she replied. "You pick. Saltlick City's lake levels have dropped mysteriously. Some vigilante is cleaning up Dodge Junction. We want to know who and why and if they'll join us. War north of Equestria; alicorns might be involved. Might be a cult worshipping Nightmare Moon in Las Pegasus. And finally, some idiot claims a dragon is stalking her and won't leave us alone. Only reason to investigate is to shut her up."

Pretty impressed with what he saw as he was walking through the facility, Dextor almost didn't hear what Starlight said. Almost.

"A vigilante?" he asked after Starlight mentioned it. "Are we talking Batcolt or Superstallion?"


Someone care to ask about the other things? Wouldn't be much fun or IC if Dextor did it Smile

"I take it the dragon stalking is local? If so, we may want to tackle it first. But may I suggest another easy one will be to go after the vigilante. After all, being a night time vigilante means you have enough energy to do that and work during the day or more likely, you're already rich and have time to devote to it. So all we have to do is find the person not doing anything during the day, and we'll find our pony.."

"Not local. Hoofington. Specializes in communication spells." As she spoke, a burst of pink flame appeared over her head, depositing a letter with ink still wet on the floor in front of her.

She sighed exasperatedly. "Packrat, get that."

A large rat scurried from somewhere, grabbed the paper, and scurried off again.

Blackhawk blinked after the letter. Guess now I know why they don't need a messenger."

"Man," Blackhawk finally broke his uncharacteristic silence, "You guys must be even harder-up than you say if you're considerin' sendin' a buncha untrained newbies like us up to check out a war!" He chuckled nervously, entirely aware of how uncomfortably close to the truth that joke probably was.

Tick tock came the noise from his quick-paced steps as he moved slightly ahead of the majority of the group. "Well," the hippogriff said in a way that made it obvious he was thinking, "In this bird's humble opinion, even if you are plannin' on sendin' us, I think we're gonna have to decline gettin' caught up in some war Equestria ain't even really involved in, least not that I've heard about. Cult sounds a bit iffy, too, from the look of things none of us got the people skills, no offense, to do any sort of underminin' or investigatin' of any fanatics." Blackhawk twitched a bit at the last word. He attempted to cover the twitch with a pause in his step to "think", talon rustling his chinfeathers. "And no way we're ever gonna be able to stand up to no dragon, assumin' that's real, which it probably ain't but who knows. Everythin's possible, right?"

The ticks and tocks resumed their metallic beat as Blackhawk nodded, setting forth again for the party's unknown destination. Nothing new; Blackhawk almost never knew what his final destination was outside of delivering messages. "Best bet's Dodge, I'm thinkin'. Sorry if any of you are Saltlick residents, but crimefighter's bit more important than some city needin' a few more pegasus on patrol. Besides," And his eyes twinkled as he looked back at Dextor. "Always wanted to meet Batcolt."

Spoiler:
Streetwise check to see if Blackhawk can remember any rumors regards Equestria playing a role in the war up North: 8 + 11 = 19.
Assuming it's alright with Warrior, I'd also like to make a Persuasion check to attempt to cover up Blackhawk's twitch. If anyone who wants to roll Perception beats the number, your character notices, again assuming it's alright with Warrior. Persuasion: 11 + 8 = 19, not bad.

[Streetwise: You know something odd's happening there; bursts of weird multicolored light mark the fighting. But so far as you know, it won't spill over into Equestria.

The Perception thing's alright with me.]

Missing water from a lake? Lame. Vigilante? More interesting, if somewhat dangerous. Dragon stalker? Yes, let's bring our own dragon to that, it'll go terrifically. Cult? Not on my life. Difficult to find, difficult to get rid of, and I already have to deal with one psychotic pony.
Kalvin casts a glance at Cheese.

Yeah, that got him good.

"I'm actually going to agree with Cheese's plan. Besides, Ms. Starlight here looks like she would sooner be rid of these letters than of someone taking care of ends she doesn't have time for." Kalvin smiles. "Sort of like us."

OOC: what map are we using? The official one put forth by Hasbro? Because Hoofington or Salt lake City isn't on that one. Or are you using this one?

[None of the above. I wasn't planning on being that specific. If you can make a case that you need a map, though, I suppose I can try to come up with something.]

Don't need to but just kind of wanted to know if Hoofington was on the way to Dodge Junction or things like that. Anyway, moving on


"Well, Batcolt sounds cool." Dextor remarked, more to himself than the others. He then though of the obvious.

"How are we going to get there? Flying? Dibs on the hippogriff!"

Dextor notices the twitch. He's not sure why Blackhawk twitched, though.

"Train," corrected Starlight. "You're going to Dodge, then?"

[Saltlick is to the southwest of Canterlot; Hoofington, to the west; Las Pegasus, further west; Dodge, to the south.]

Actually, Cheese Wheel suggested to go after the dragon stalking if it was local. If not, he said the easiest of the rest was to go after the vigilante. So you agreed to go after the vigilante regardless. Kind of contradicting yourself there, Quietkal Smile

Off to Dodge Junction we go!


Dextor mulled something over in his mind. Something important.

"We do get travel expenses paid, right?" he asked a bit nervous. "Because I don't carry a lot of bits around."

"And how do we stay in contact?" His face immediately perked up. "Do we get some cool gadgets? Two way communication wristbands and all that good stuff?"

His eyes were now twinkling with anticipation. "Can I get mine with a tuxedo?"
