A train takes you from your respective areas to the mine. Near the entrance stands a group of clearly stressed ponies; most are preoccupied, but one watches you as you approach. The one is none other than a certain purple alicorn, and those of you native to Equestria recognize her as Princess Twilight. Next to her stand the rest of the bearers of the Elements, each wearing their respective jewel: a white unicorn not at all at ease with her location, a pink earth pony who seems to be humming to herself, a blue pegasus hovering in the air and staring into the darkness, an orange earth pony who paces back and forth in front of the entrance, and a yellow pegasus who is visibly trembling, her eyes darting about wildly. One other pony, a golden yellow earth pony with a triangle cutie mark, sits at Princess Twilight's side and seems much more comfortable than the rest, excitedly looking in what seems to be random directions.

Sunny Zoo is the first to step off, each step carefully placed without breaking a stride. The princess affords a small smile and a polite nod as you approach.
" 'Prohibit the taking of omens, and do away with superstitious doubts. Then, until death itself comes, no calamity need be feared.' I believe I'm quoting your scroll correctly? It is good to meet such a knowledged pony as yourself, but I am saddened that our first and perhaps only meeting is to utilize your skills."
She pauses for a moment when the golden earth pony to her side suddenly turns to you, breaks into a dangerous smile, and says in a too excited and oddly high-pitched voice, "The Cage? Ooh, an excellent choice, Rising Star!"
The princess merely sighs and pulls out a scroll and a quill from a saddlebag on the ground, before marking the parchment.

The golem designated Zero One is the next off the train. The princess's eyes light up with a bittersweet curiosity, and prepares to speak before the golden pony interrupts.
"The Seed! It has been so long! My how you've grown!" He stares at you for a moment more, before shrugging and resuming looking in random directions.
The princess marks the the scroll again, before speaking. "I thank you for coming, Zero One, as representative of Equestria. Celestia and Luna wished me to convey their personal gratitude as well." The yellow pegasus stops trembling and looks at you for a moment before gently nudging the pink pony, who continues humming but turns to face the forming group.

A dark blue pegasus follows the golem from the train, and the princess nods politely as you approach. "Storm Blade. I bid you welcome, and thank you for your service." The golden earth pony nods his head toward you as well, his voice continuing in its high pitch. "The Lamp. Decided to light the dark from under your shade?" He chuckles briefly, as another mark is made on the scroll. The blue pegasus looks back and sees you, landing as she does so.

The Joy and Dead Eye exit the train together. The golden pony laughs and says “Ah yes! The Hook and the Flower!” as you approach, and the princess makes more marks on the scroll.
”Thank you for overseeing him, The Joy. Dead Eye, you are to be granted a pardon for your heinous crimes should you show that you have changed by assisting this group.” She then levitates a very familiar looking rifle from behind a pile of rocks over to the criminal pony.

Phoenix ducks through the train’s entrance, his unusual form somewhat larger than the train was intended for. ”Thank you for your assistance, Phoenix. Your experience with other dimensions may well work to our advantage.”
The golden pony rolls his eyes and says, “Please. There’s seldom that the Rainbow could tell you that I couldn’t.” The blue pegasus grumbles at this, but doesn’t make a scene as the alicorn marks the scroll again.

Finally, Nurse Deadheart exits the train and joins the group. “The Feather? Hmm...” the golden pony says, before turning away distracted. The princess hesitates for a moment before marking the scroll and putting it away. ”Thank you for coming, Nurse. If anypony might help keep the group alive, it would be one such as you.”

Suddenly, an unsettling laugh echoes quietly from the mine, and the Elements shudder. "That, is why you have been called here. We are able to keep it from advancing farther toward the light using the Elements and some of Bill's knowledge," Twilight gestures to the golden pony, who waves childishly. At this point, you notice that each of the physical Elements has a different, presumably eldritch symbol etched into their surface. "We don't know what it is, but the fact that our presence deters it cannot be a good sign. You have been asked to...” The princess pauses for a moment, struggling with the next word, when the golden pony jumps in. ”Kill it, remove it from this plane of existence, something like that.” He raises a forehoof and inspects it.
The alicorn looks at him for a moment, before turning worriedly to the group. “...yes. That. Er...any questions?”

((Do stuff before you head into the cave? Mostly just a check-in for everypony that signed up.))

"What information, if any do we have on the... creature we are to face?" Storm Blade spoke up, his face calm and collected at he looked down into the darkness, trying to perceive the threat that they where to take on. "There are other questions that I have, but they are not important and can wait till later." The guard spoke calmly and confidently, almost as if he was certain that they would be victorious. Through he didn't sound arrogant as he spoke.

"What bygone era is this foe from? The Golem asked as it looks at the group. "And are you sure that everypony here will be needed? Normally at most I'd just need some combat medic to aid me, just in case... This group strikes me as possible overkill for whatever threat we've been tasked to kill..."

The balance of life and death was something Nurse Deadheart had dealt with most of her life. After calmly gazing into the darkness, her sullen voice uttered a simple question, "How many are already dead?

Spoiler:
She does have Nightwatch in case there's anything near the entrance.

Twilight's face scrunches a little. "We don't actually know much. Scrying attempts just dissipate as they near the room it's in, and we've sent several groups down...none of whom have been heard from since."

The golden jumps in, quickly stating "Not bygone, spatially perpendicular. Rising Star's convinced it'll kill all life if it makes it to the surface, but I think it's more of a 1-in-12 chance that something'll survive."

"We've assumed that the ponies that already went in have...become deceased. Approximately 40."
Spoiler:
From what you can see of the entrance, it just seems like a normal mine. A fairly recently cut rock tunnel runs about 60 feet before it turns out of sight; wooden beams form a support system down the sides. No mysterious symbols are carved into the walls, no piles of bones scattered about, nothing that really hints that there's something other than more tunnel below.

The golden pony just smiles and turns to Twilight. "Yes, who am I?"
The princess glares lightly at him, before turning back to you and saying in a voice that sounds rehearsed, "Bill has proven himself to be one of the friendliest and most trustworthy individuals that I've ever encountered in my life. What a guy. I honestly could not trust him more. Bill is a true gentleman."
The golden pony starts snickering at this, attempting to hold back full-blown laughter. The bearers collectively groan, before the pink pony speaks up. "Twilight only seems able to describe him as that. We think he's some sort of extra-differential lawyer that Twilight called on to help with the Whoozy in the mine. Which he has, sorta."

The white earth pony took the rifle delicately (after a bow to the princess - he was not so low that he would not hold the royalty of Equestria sacred), then made a business of inspecting it just to make sure it was in working order and as he remembered - as much as he could find out without actually firing it. "Sounds good to me," he spoke in a Trottingham accent, "40 ponies dead? Damn. This could be the kill of a lifetime... all the fights I've been in were curb-stomps one way or the other... I wonder if this'll be different..."

Sunny Zoo looks at the golem Zero One  "I don't relish killing, nor violence in any form, but at the same time believe there is no such thing as overkill."  She turns her gaze to Storm Blade  "Especially when we don't yet know our foe.  I would prefer to learn our enemy before confronting it, but that may be a luxury we don't have.  The bearers of the Elements are on the defensive here, and need us to go on the offensive.  If there's no more knowledge to be had, I agree that we must move to prevent more lives from being lost."

Well that's a lot to catch up on. You would start the game while I'm super busy at work, and don't get home til after midnight.

Actual post incoming, gimme a minute.

The golden pony rolls his eyes and says, “Please. There’s seldom that the Rainbow could tell you that I couldn’t.” The blue pegasus grumbles at this, but doesn’t make a scene as the alicorn marks the scroll again.

"Yeah, probably- 'the Rainbow'? Who is this guy?" Phoenix cocks his head, scanning the group. He knew and recognized the usual 6 (even if one of them had sprouted a pair of wings), but this gold pony was new, no incarnations of him yet encountered.

Spoiler:

too much to sift through to match responses, so...

"Well, look, whatever that thing is, it is not the scariest thing here by a long ways. If it- and 'Bill'- are jumping verses, then it's probably not a super big deal anyway. 40 kills and trapped in a cave by the Elements is hardly cause for major concern. And it looks to me like you guys spared no effort nor great expense to bring together the best equipped- by Pony Standards anyway- group of killer individuals. And since it's not everyday I get the green light from Twilight to go kill something, I say we get to it. Should be neat." Phoenix adjusts his gear, allowing for a quick stretch and some plausibly unnecessary knuckle cracking. "And for the record, Billy, I know so, SO much more than you do about so many more things. You ain't slick."

At this point, Twilight speaks up. "Yes, if you have no more questions, I ask that you start down. There's only one tunnel so you can't get lost, and we have a lantern to provide light for you. We will remain at the entrance to keep it inside and await your return. I thank you again...and wish you the best of luck."

Storm Blade quickly moved to take point. He specialized in fast reaction speeds and incredible defense, so being at the front made the most sense to him. Please he could also see in the dark so it was best that the lantern had minimal effect on this night-vision of his. He still didn't know how he could see in the dark.

Being a glowing light-sorce himself, Zero One didn't bother with the lanter as he starts to have his magics start to warm up. Getting ready to blow this thing with the best of his blasts. Hoping this time he'll get a good deal of damage out as best he can.

"Ooh, you know what race I am. That's almost as impressive as Spackle sprouting wings. It's already pretty clear that YOU aren't a pony, either, so outside info isn't surprising in the least. And I'll give you $1000 if you can tell me what Firagean actually means- or anything else super important that no one really knows about me." Phoenix begins following the others, taking up a slow rear, in case Bill had any kind of answer. Passing the other ponies, he adds a grinning "Heeeeeeey, Rarity."

The white unicorn just shoots you a confused and somewhat creeped out look as you go past.

As you move around the corner, you can hear the golden pony say to presumably Twilight, "How can I tell him what no one knows? By definition I wouldn't know!"

The cave continues onwards in a surprisingly large path, a gentle slope with a switchback every hundred feet or so. Wooden beams provide support on the sides and across the top, and the entire path seems to be fairly monotonous until you come to a corner where a large, complex symbol has been carved into the wall. After a moment, you figure that if all of the symbols from earlier had been stacked, they would form...that.

As you pass the corner, those of you reliant on light notice that the amount of light from both the lantern and Zero One seems to decrease as you continue on, down until it only allows for only about a meter of vision. Those of you with dark-sight notice that there seems to be an end to your vision, something very odd, and it progressively gets closer as you continue down, stopping only a few meters from you.

You pass yet another corner, and you hear the laugh again. It sounds very close, and you can actually hear a muffled sound not unlike ponies moaning as you continue on.

As you turn past the last corner, the creeping darkness seems to dissipate very rapidly, and you're able to see a very large cavern with some sort of very elaborate mine cart system built all through the open cavern and periodically moving into small tunnels in the surrounding rock. A large skeleton, easily twice Phoenix's height but of a similar build, seems to be doing some sort of ritualistic dance in the very center of the cavern. He wears what appears to be a top hat, but some dark aura is exuded from it. Mine carts constantly go to and fro on the various tracks, and you can see weak ponies on most of them. The moans of the ponies slowly become clear, and you're able to understand that they're all moaning the same phrase. "I want to get off Mr Bones Wild Ride!"

The skeleton suddenly stops dancing and turns to you, before leaning back and belting out an eerie laugh that shakes the cavern. Dust falls from the top of the cavern, and the ceiling of the path behind you collapses.

(Roll initiative. I cannot tell you how much I was looking forward to this reveal.)

Storm Blade was absolutely disgusted by he sights and sounds around him, and immediately tensed for combat. Knowing that this skeleton was the threat they had been called to eliminate, and trapped these ponies in its feindish 'ride'. He felt lightning charged as adrenaline kicked in, leaving him ready to move at the moments notice.

While Nurse Deadheart was disgusted by the fiendish creature's malevolence, seeing the ponies alive meant there was a chance to save them. However, this bit of observation and introspection slowed her reactions a bit.
