Varesh gives you a look so dirty it could kill. "You are playing a very dangerous game here, Mister Sparks. May I remind you that you would be pushing up daisies right now if it was not for me?" whispers the unicorn as she looks you dead in the eyes. However, a few moments pass, and your stubbornness prevails. Varesh turns around, thinks to herself for a bit, and then proceeds to hug you. "You have got yourself a deal Sparky. We are going to be great together, I just know it. Now, this might hurt a wee bit." Before you can react, you feel a huge migraine as the tunnel's darkness begins to envelope everything...
When you come to, you find yourself sitting outside of a small cafe at the pier, with the crown and an empty glass and straw on the table in front of you. Varesh sits opposite from you, most likely a mental projection or something along those lines. "Now then Sparks, we need to get rid of this crown, and I have already thought of the perfect way. See that ship over there?" Varash asks as she points out a nearby small-ish cargo ship. "The thieves who broke into the museum stole a few other things, and they are planning to ship them off to some place called Manehattan. I am leading your friends over here, but before they arrive, we need to get this crown onto that ship, and maybe act knocked out."

"Right then er how should I talk to you when your like this? Just think loudly? I'd probablly do something like that but..." Sparks shakely gets up. "I think whatever you did did a number on my body..."

"Well Sparky, you can just think to yourself, but if we are alone, it'd be more fun if you just talk aloud," the unicorn replies with a friendly smile...

You attempt to leap onto the boat, but instead crash into it in an embarrassing fashion. Varesh watches from the pier and rolls her eyes. "Do you want me to get into the boat for you, or is crashing into boats just a hobby you like to do on the side?"

Snipe pauses, his instincts as a child fighting with his outward, stoic, guard-like persona that he puts on. An inner struggle between the training he had been going through as a sniper and his five year old mind!

The child won.

"Are we there yet?"
Three seconds later "Are we there yet?" Three more seconds "Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet? Are we there yet?"

"No it's just that my body doesn't seem to be working right now..." Sparks says toward where Varesh would be while he climbs onto the ship. "What exactly did you do when you were in control? Actually don't answer that I don't want to know... now I'm about to collapse..." With that Sparks allows unconsciousness to overtake his body.

When you regain concious, you find yourself resting on the bed in the small apartment you live in during your stay at Saint-Trotez. Well, somewhat. Bones are littered all over the place, and Varesh is sitting comfortably at the table. "It would seem that you are not yet use to having to share your mind. Would you like another go at it, or should I just deal with this while you relax?" She then looks a bit annoyed for a second. "Also, is your small friend always so impatient?"

Snipe continues pulling a child and asking that, poking the construct's head curiously. "Sorry if I'm bugging you Mister, I just don't know where we're going." He goes back his position, looking around.

Necrar leaves Aces and Storm to catch up with Snipe. "So, Snipe, how'd you join the guards when you're so young?" Necrar asks, walking alongside the construct.

Snipe looks down at Necrar, pausing in his questions only to answer him. "I'm in training, not a real guard and I don't really want to be. I'm just a sniper and, as you saw, kind of small and weak and easily hurt. I'm not really good at being right the- Oh hey one of my targets- There on the front line. Are we there yet Mister thing?"

Aces made a noise at about the halfway point of a grunt and a sigh. "Well, leas' we can ge' some confirmation this way." The gambler looked around at the crowd for a moment, then hunched his shoulders, bringing his head downwards. Then he raised his right hoof, casually, and scratched against his left eye.

The eyepatch slipped aside as he did so, revealing a glowing red gemstone of some kind - dim though that glow was, it was definitely real. With that gem exposed, Aces looked directly into the traumatized colt's eyes. The colt slipped into some sort of trance, slowly, eyes transforming themselves into spirals.

"So then," Aces said, "You saw the guard who pu' on the crown. Wha' did this guard look like, in detail?"

Spoiler:
Aces High has activate his Element of Honesty. His next two questions will likely not be affected by the answer to the first, but just in case.

Stealth check to hide the methodology by which Aces activates such from the general populous: 20(Nat 20!) + 9(bonus) = 29.

No one sees how you are doing this. Not even the pegasus (although he is under the effect)...

"Grey coat," utters the pony in a somewhat monotone way. "Brown eyes, brown mane and tail with red highlights. Bottom of hooves visible, cream colour. Wore armour and wielded a sword. The armour shattered in a fight and revealed a Cutie Mark of a pair of crossed knives." That accurately fits the description of Sparks...

Snipe points towards a cardboard cut-out of a crudely drawn unicorn, who looks comically vicious. There are splatters of paint in various colours on and around the horn, the face, and the legs. They are generally on target...

The construct slowly turns over the look at what you were pointing out, but doesn't react to anything else...

Snipe glances at the construct then points up above him, testing something. "Oh, hey there's my tower. I spend time there between 'training sessions' and it's a good place to get these. There's a few pegasi on bigger buildings and earth ponies too. I go for headshots when practicing "taking out dangerous targets" and horns, wings, and legs when going for "Crippling shots""

Aces outright groans now. "Tha' jus' figures. Alrigh' then, nex' question. Assuming you're a member of the infamous group of thieves the Feathers, and you can jus' tell me if you're no', think of the name of the highest-ranking pony - or other sapien' creature - in the organization whose name - their real name - you know. Wha' is their name?"

Spoiler:
Making a check in advance to see if I recognize the name the pony is about to give me, ignore this if for one reason or another he doesn't give a name:

"Smart Feather and Strong Feather."

You've heard the names mentioned in newspapers before, but they don't really have a historic presence...

Also, they are totally the most known and well loved ponies in town, donating whatever bits they get to charities and whatever spare time they have to volunteering. This is totally not your Derp Streetwise check speaking, this is the truth!

You once again regain concious, this time wet from being in the sea, and facing a ramp that leads on to the ship...

"Smart Feather wanted to see if it actually worked," the pegasus mumbles, his fear beginning to return to his voice. "We were planning on robbing the museum anyway, so he-he wanted to see if it could actually read minds. If it did, he'd keep it for himself. If n-n-not, he'd just sell it off. But if you ask me I wouldn't want anything to do with that crown. Nononosir." At that, the pegasus begins to lie on the ground and tries to comfort himself...

At this point, the construct stops moving. He begins to slowly turn his head 180 degrees around to face you. When he is done, he shakes his head, returns it to its original posistion, and begins walking again...

Snipe blinks, not knowing that that was more or less a warning sign, and goes back to his pokes and bugs.

"Okay, what did you do?" Storm Blade asked Aces, almost demand as he tried to see what Aces had done. Not only had he taken on a rather... odd position, but he had managed to snap the hysterical pegasus and get him to answer his questions calmly, he knew that something was up because of that. However, he did at the same time thinking about who the pegasus had named, having a very good idea who they where.
