Oh, wow, I've never seen gangs before. I've heard of them. I can't believe they are trying to make money off of somepony else being a successful buisness pony, she's just an honest worker, and honest work is the only work worth doing.

Golden Spike scowls as he descends to the ground. I know, I don't know any of these ponies, but I know right from wrong. He lowers his body, preparing to act if things get out of hoof.

Miracle sighs. "Seriously? You're honestly doing this? It is far too early in the day for these sorts of things." Then she grabs a bottle of her Enervation Elixir (with Nectarine Infusions!) and slides it over to the end of the table. She smiles, bright and clear. "But I'll hear you out. Have a drink, Sweetie- can I call you Sweetie? Let's talk shop. And I'm sure these kind ponies..." She gestures to the crowd, apparently cowed. "...won't mind listening while we have our little chat. And you wouldn't mind either. Would you, Sweetie? And can I speak to Sauce and Style?" She blinks and then chuckles. "Heh heh... you've got a little S thing going on, haven't you?"

[Persuasion- Natural 20+10=30]

Oh, wow, she's better at this than I thought she'd be. Golden Spike relaxes a bit, content to see how this scene unfolds. I think she holds more wallop than any of those goons

"Well I was thirsty. Don't mind if I do." Sweet N Sour downs the whole thing in one gulp.

While SnS is chugging the drink, a little murmur comes over the crowd as Xeca examines her tail. SnS turns arounds. "What are you doing with my tail?!" she exclaims as she points as Xeca. Unfortunately, it looks like its that very same moment that the paralysis potion took effect and her arm is frozen, pointing at her.

The crowd gasps!

"How did she do that?"

"Whats wrong with her?"

"Hey did anyone notice she's not actually a pony?"

"Quiet you!"

Shanghai Style and Garlic Sauce rush over "You'll pay for what you did to the boss!"

Golden Spike watches as the scene unfolds before him. Glancing around at the crowd. I can't believe they are all going to watch this, there are little fillies and colts playing around here.

Golden Spike leaps up and darts toward the crowd, landing right next to the ponies. A little nervous, he tries, because somepony has to, to stop the fighting right as it breaks out: "Woah! What do you think you're all doing! you can't fight here, there are little fillies and colts around. Have you no shame?"

That seems to give them pause. "Well if that mare didn't ... what did she do, anyway"

Garlic Sauce is poking Sweet N Sour in the withers, hoping to get some reaction. "I dunno."

"Well then who did whatever it is that they did?"

"Well, I'm just a farmer, so I don't know much about stuff like this, but maybe somepony around here can help her. I just got here today so I don't know anypony 'round these parts, but why don't you take her to the local doctor or something? It looks kind of serious."

They ignore Golden Spike and continue to poke at Sweet N Sour in an attempt to get her to react.

OOC: Good idea. Poor roll.

"Well, if I may offer a solution, boys..." Miracle raises a hoof, pardons herself, and dives back into her caravan. Inside, she gets set up with her alchemical equipment and begins fractional-boiling the monkshood and paltry graces in oil of cardinals. "Give me some time and I should be able to come up with something for your boss. And what say that, in exchange, we forget this little incident...?"

They take the offered potion. "Hey! Wait a moment! Wasn't the boss drinking from a bottle like this earlier! You tricked her!"

Garlic Sauce looks steamed. "That makes me so mad!"

At that moment, a high pitched whistle sounds. Shanghai Style and Garlic Sauce suddenly look very nervous "What say we forget this unfortunate incident and let bygones be bygones?"

"Gotta go! Bye!" They pick up Sweet N Sour and between the two of them, somehow manage to carry her off, leaving a cloud of dust behind them.

A pony with a blue cap and sash arrives into view. "Good riddance!" he says.

Xeca blinks at the running ponies. Why were they so scared? Did this new pony have some sort of magic power? Maybe the hat was a symbol of authority....

She walks up and pokes at the hat curiously.

As the robot approached the town, clinking softly with the occasional sharp protest of metal, it saw a crowd gathered near the gates. It wondered, with vague mechanical interest, what that many... what was the word? It shook it's head, and a loose connection made contact again. Yes, Ponies, that was the name. It wondered what so many ponies were doing in one place, and what they were so drawn to. It continued on, coming into town, hoping to find someone who knew what was happening, why the world was strange, and why it's memory was sealed away from it.

Hmm, a local authority? I guess he's someone who deals with that trio on a regular basis.

She walks up and pokes at the hat curiously.

After the first poke, he starts to try to block it. "Are you daft mare? Quit poking my cap!"

While he continues to try to block the poking by Xeca, he says "Just Desserts."

"Well, Mr. Desserts, you have my thanks. Can I treat you to something?" Miracle taps a hoof on the table, then slides a few multicolored vials over to herself. "Corpus Cleanser? Vital Vixen's Vitriol? Armageddon After-Dinner Mints (with Germ-Perdition Power)? Take your pick!"

Then she looks over at him and appears to ponder for a moment. "Say... would you happen to know whether you need any sorts of licenses to operate around here? And if not, any better venues?"

"No offense. I'm sure your potions are wonderful, but as an officer of the law, I can't accept any sort of gratuity."


Then she looks over at him and appears to ponder for a moment. "Say... would you happen to know whether you need any sorts of licenses to operate around here? And if not, any better venues?"

"You don't need a license to operate out here. If you want to set up your stand inside the village proper, you'll need to fill out some fill out some forms, and pay a small fee. The fee varies on the location your requesting, and whether you'll be there for a day, a week or a month."

SilentBelle wrote:"Well I'm certainly glad you showed up when you did," Golden Spike says, "it saved everypony a lot of trouble. I imagine you deal with that trio on a regular basis? Oh, and I'm Golden Spike by the way, pleased to meet you."

"Please to meet you Golden Spike. And yes, there are various sorts of gangs that operate out here. Its also why setting shop outside here is free. Unfortunately, I'm the city's only police officer. Of course, there's Master Roti around if any gang gets too rowdy, but he's old, and I don't like calling him out unless the situation is desparate."

He pauses a moment.

"You three seem fairly competent. Would you be agreeable to taking a job on behalf of the city."

OOC: Appkes, is Steel Heart going to make a appearance soon? Should anypony be able to see him from the gates yet?

"...Specify 'job', please." Miracle Elixir's trade has left her as skeptical as she is friendly. "Also, specify whether there's 'pay' and 'accolades', please."

OOC: I think Miracle Elixir should probably be Generosity and not Honesty. She's not averse to scams, but she is fairly generous with her libations.

"Well, I wasn't expecting that," Golden Spike replies throwing a nervous glance over his shoulder, just to make sure that Just Desserts was indeed including him. "But I s'pose I have nothing better to do at the moment... So, sure, I'd be happy to help out, well, provided it's a problem that I can actually help with."

I wonder who would want the help of three random strangers new to the town.
