Golden Spike raises an eyebrow at that. "No, not really. Still, I feel kinda bad about breaking that 'thing', whatever the 'thing' was."

"I guess so." Miracle sighs and sits, staring out the window.

(OOC: Yes, let's! Hopefully moving on to another cool thing for interesting people!)

As you drive away at an exceedingly leisurely pace, not further happens. After another few hours of driving, you reach a small tent settlement. Everywhere ponies can be seen milling about, but there's something a bit strange about them. You're still far away, but near enough to see the camp.

"Well, we've got Just Desserst," replies Khaarazite, pointing to each group member as he lists them, "Tea Time, Monkey Tail, Cueball," but when his hoof pointed at the two ponies he was unfamiliar with, he asks them "Erm, what's your name? نام؟"

Translation:
Name?

"Well, we kinda need to get an orb back before helping you get out. How hard would that be?"

While Khaarazite now had a name for this unusual creature, he wonders what kind of name Stl Hrt is. Maybe introducing it won't that necessary...

"Hmm, strange ponies, that's what my gut tells me... But I can't put my hoof on why they are strange..." Golden Spike muses aloud. "Say, Miracle, do you think those ponies out there are friendly? I'm getting a bad feeling, and it's not motion-sickness."

"I have no idea, pony." Miracle shrugs. "Though I guess they are a little creepy-looking. Maybe you could observe them from the air?"

"Yeah... I suppose I could." Golden Spike opened the door and quickly took to the air. Flying up toward the strange ponies, flying as close as he has to in order to figure out what's so weird about these ponies. He hoping that he'd be able to figure it out, though he wasn't sure what he was looking for.

Miracle cranes her head and stares, hoping to see what's up as well.

It seems like the ponies are covered in armor, from nose to flank and ears to hoof, with no exposed flesh.

"Hey, Spike!" yells Miracle. "I dunno what you can see, but these guys look heavily armored and possibly suspicious! Should we check them out?"

Lightning Decaf awoke with a yawn as the caravan slowed to a stop. Looking out the window, she witnessed many ponies covered in metal plates, wandering in and out of various canvas structures. She immediately wondered why they would wear so much metal, why they would live under a canvas instead of in a cart, and most critically how was she going to figure all of that out?

"What's that?" she asked, getting Miracle's attention before pointing at the whole spectacle. Though she suspected she wasn't going to get quite the answer she wanted...

"Violent dismemberment!" Miracle grins. "Let's check it out anyway!"

She has a vivid imagination.

"Frankly, Decaf, I don't have any idea. Looks like ponies in armor-" - she points to the ponies in metal plates - "Who live in tents." Another jab, towards the tents.

Decaf cocked her head at the mare's explanation. "Frankly". "Poniesinarmor". "Tents".

Wait a minute; maybe "Poniesinarmor" was several words, given the way it was pronounced. She broke it down into "ponies", "in", and "armor". "In" was obviously a connecting sound, meant to associate one with the other. But which word meant the metal plating, and which one meant the ones who wore it?

And then there were several other words that clawed at her. "Looks". "Who". "Live". What did those mean?

Her meditation was cut short as her head suddenly screamed at her once again as a new memory forced it's way to the surface. A single word, spoken with a desire for meaning, her tongue mindlessly obeying that desire, and said...

"Why?"

Miracle considers how to explain. Then she bangs an exposed metal pipe. "Armor."

She taps her own head, and Decaf. "Ponies."

But the last comment, "why", escapes her. "Why? Um..."

She takes a moment, then leans out the window. "Spike, you handle this one and I'll keep an eye on the possibly deadly armor ponies."

"Oh yes. The power armors. They're from this place's armory. Like the drilling fortress itself, I'm not sure where they come from either. The orb is probably in one of the upper level treasure vaults by now.

At this point you hear a loud rumbling.

Golden Spike flies near the armoured ponies, though he makes sure to keep his distance in case they are some sort of bandits. They're in armour, I can totally fly away if things get out of control. Kind of like when my brother got mad at me for skipping out on chores back at the farm.

"Uh, hey, guys, up here! So, um, what are the lot of you guys doing out here?"

One of them. this one with armor with red highlights, says in a strangely monotone voice. "Halt, intruder. Identify yourself and state your business."

Oh, and I'm Golden Spike, but you can just call me Spike, that's what most ponies tend to do. So, what's your name, and what are ya doing out here, all dressed in armor?" Golden Spike does comply with coming to a hovering halt, out of reach from ground-bound ponies.

"Irrelevant question." He turns to another pony clad in armor. "Inform the General we have a visitor."
