Arcana [10]+d20 [13] = 23

Buffs: Grandeur (+1)
Most dependable of ponies (+1)

Maybe she was pushing him too hard... but this was important. If that was the Student...

Compass had to do whatever she could to restore her. She had to. She closed her eyes as tight as she could, trying to remember every happy thing she could, and wishing for something.
That she was right,and she was about to witness another Wonder.

Her coat and mane began to sparkle and shimmer slightly wherever they were exposed. Compass didn't notice.

Please. If you're her...please. Please work...

This time the power flowed much more smoothly. The statue began to glow, the worn and cracked parts began to knit together-

Fwooosh!
A bright flash of light momentarily blinded everyone looking in the direction of the statue. When their eyes adjusted...

Well, the statue looked a lot nicer. Like it had just been cut and polished to perfection. It even picked up a fancy looking tiara. But it was still just a statue.

Midas peered up at it. "Philosopher rock fixer. That's weird. I think it was maybe just a statue, Rose."

The light was enough to burn through Compass' eyelids. When it subsided, she opened her eyes, a grin spread from ear to ear.

That was the same light as when Marked was revived, she thought. I knew it would work!

She noticed her coat and mane, sparkling like crystal. Well... what of it? They'd just done the impossible! Of course she should be happy! There was the Faithful Student herself-

Still a rock.

She stared. The crystal shine over her body, the smile on her face, the eagerness in her posture... that all remained. But her eyes had faded, and looked to crumple in her skull.

Slowly, the shimmer faded. Compass stared at the statue, and sat, and turned her eyes towards the dirt.

Why did she expect it to work?
Stupid statue pony. Only good for looking pretty.

She heard Midas' words. Maybe he was right...and if so, then she really was stupid. Thinking a statue was a Wonder.
"Thanks for trying, Midas...

(OOC: OH COME ON! *sweetie voice* at least turn it alive... And a NPC that might last who knows how long with us... I mean really... NAT-20 NEEDS TO GET SOME TYPE OF OUTCOME! Unless the GM really strongly feels no... Then I'll just shut up. But still think that something of value should be gained.)

Questions gets to work once he notices the bag in the mud and gets as much of the dang odd Triangles of unknown importance... "So... What's the punch line to these props that you guys talked about?"

"Uh huh. If you want me to try again though, you gotta wait. That was all I'd made, and it takes a few days to make more. Philosophy is tough."

As he spoke, on a whim, he examined the statue with his horn. As he did, he spoke absently. "You should magic your fur more. It's cool. Like Rose Quartz and geodes. I saw a picture of Geode once. It was pretty."

Meta:
Arcanaing again. This time just to see if the statue's been magicked in any way.

Arcana=17+roll=8=25

Eey, we've normalized again!

"These 'props' are the Elements of Harmony. At least, we think they are. That could be yours, I suppose." Sunlit Wave says, bending down to pick up a shard or two. "Just to check, you are aware that we are in Discord's Game, are you not?" He asks Marked Questions, very carefully keeping any hint of mocking out of his voice.

Skitter finally see her bees ( a good size swarm) arriving. They crowd around her, ready to hear what she has to say.

The statue seems designed to store magic. Midas feels his own power surging in it,. In fact-

There wasn't much visual warning. Marked Question might have been able to catch a tiny spark of light coming off of the gem of the center of the tiara. For the rest, one second the group was just standing around. The next moment there was a surge of Chaotic Magic, and the entire group is dumped into a circular chamber, with a fully colored version of The Faithful Student standing innocently in the center of the room.

ooc:
I just want to clarify, the statue is still a statue, its just colored now

"Yes, I am, that is what basically was told to me before I ended up here... Stoned... And the easy joke was written on me if I recall the events right." Marked Questions replied before the change in scenery happened.

"Um... What, a basic teleport is physics messing with you now?" Marked asked chuckling at the absurd idea.

"If that was a normal teleport, it was shoddily done. It's polite to aim for the 6 inches just off the ground." Sunlit Wave says, getting up and finding that he once more needs to shake himself off. While doing so, he looks around, hoping to find a door or a lack of ceiling.

OOC:

perception check (if at all necessary...I'm almost looking for the broadside of a barn.): 15+5=20

Sunlit can see that there are, in fact doors. Five of them. Each is  marked with a symbol. Sunlit can see a heart, a tree, a star, a wrench and a smiley-face sun.

"Right," Compass said, sounding like she wasn't paying attention. "Pretty. At least I can be good for something-"

Suddenly, a surge of chaos. Compass felt herself jerked forward, as if someone -somedraconequis, more like- shoved a hook up her nose and pulled. She landed, her head banging against the floor as she did. She struggled to stand, her boots catching under her cloak.

'Stupid statue pony. Can't even sit right, she thought! before the change of scenery kicked in. Well, what about it? This was Discords realm. They had been in a void not so LNG ago. A fountain to a room wasn't much-

She looked up, at the pony standing in the centre of the room.

Her breath caught in her chest.
Her eyes began to sting.
And her coat began to shine.

"Said nothing about it being "normal" now did I?" Questions comments as he looks around as well.

perspection check:
1D20+20 => [ 5 ] +20 = 25... First roll was a 3, second was a 5... Next I get a 7... If that happens... I'm calling myself lucky. XD

Recall that I have Engle Eye and Nightwatch... So I can see a lot better distance wise then the norm and natural darkness hides nothing form me!

As he realizes that dust does not leave half-dried paint very well, Sunlit Wave lets out a small huff. "5 again. Shouldn't there be 6 of everything?" He mutters to himself before noticing compass' reaction to the statue. "Compass, are you alright? If I'm getting the hang of this, your coat says yes, but you looked...choked up."

Midas shook his head emphatically. "Nuh-uh. A teleport is when you know where you're going and you get there. That was a fatueport."

Midas picked himself up. "Yeah, exactly, Sunlit. How come there's only five doors? There's six elements and seven of us."

As she watched the bee swarm approaching, Skitter sat down on her rump, spreading her wings and forelegs out as far as they would go as they engulfed her in a buzzing mass... She choked down her panic in a trained reaction. This was nothing new. Tp be properly useful, the bees needed to understand what she was, what she felt, which they gathered via scent. Which they gathered by crawling all over her skin. It was almost pleasant once she got over her instinctive panic...

And then Chaos happened. The whole mass was yanked into a new space with her as she found herself inside a chamber of some kind. The bees scattered briefly in surprise, but quickly adapted; falling into a Ready swarm. Skitter wasted no time in giving out tasks by repeating her vibrations.

<Okay workers! We don't know where we are and I want that fixed! Most of you, spread out and find exits, preferably a pony-sized one, and then return and report! I want ten of you on me and two of you on each of my friends here all the time! If one of them finds something or goes missing or anything else I want to know about it! DON'T sting them, or your queen will hear about it from me! Again, I'm not in the Collective Conscious, so I want to be told about EVERYTHING! MONITER EVERYTHING! Now let's get moving!>

Spoiler:
Oh curses. I started typing before mjh added the 'still a statue' bit. Thought that it was her.

"Alright? I'm... I'm..."

Compass leapt to her feet, and grinned ear to ear.

"I haven't been this glad since I met Windy.... maybe ever! Something happened... something had to have happened! Maybe she is still a statue... but look at her! Look at this place! I don't know what we did, but this... it's a step in the right direction! I can just feel it!"

She turned back to the statue, and sighed. Maybe it wasn't want she wanted...but it was something. It was proof. She wished for it, and it happened.

"And this... this why I'm a Wonderluster. Because This is a Wonder, and Wonders are Magic."

"Whatever it was, we're here now." Steel took a brief look around as well, just to see what it looked like, no detail. At Midas remembering to count Ian, Steel gave a nod and a smile in his direction. Compass' outburst was largely ignored by Steel, as he and Ian had finally gotten to work on clearing the mud.

As far as Questions could tell, this was a completely straightforward chamber. There were torches in the wall so that everyone could see, and there were five marked doors that were firmly closed( although not, as far as he could tell, locked) In the center of the room was a purple statue of a unicorn mare, painted in life-like detail.

The bees attempted to follow Skitter's orders, but were soon stymied by the lack of anywhere to go.

Midas smiled back at Steel before turning to look at Compass. He opened his mouth to speak, but at the sight of her shimmering fur, his words caught in his throat. He bapped himself on the skull a few times before looking at the directions again. "Um, if anyone goes anyway, then Steel and Ian should go in the wrench 'cause metal, Skitter should go in the tree 'cause bees, Sunlit should go in the sun 'cause duh, Rose should go in the star 'cause she's stars and Marked should go in the heart 'cause he's left. If we don't go together I mean."

"You know what... Before we do anything, just give me the ciff notes on what the buck we're all meant to do here? Cause Discord clearly thought it was funny to leave the critic out of the loop of what this game entails..." Marked requested. "I mean... I don't got a clue what the point of these Elements mean and their importance..."

Skitterbuzz deadpanned at the unicorn. "How convenient for you. If we can open those I can send bees to scout it out, but I think I want you where I can see you," she stipulated, before addressing the bees again.

<Regroup, on me please. Remember, at least two bees on everyone else all the time, three on that one please,> she buzzed out, indicating Midas as the one to have an extra bee escort.

Midas hung his head. "Um, okay. Hi bees."

The unicorn thought very hard about Marker's question. "So I think that we each have half our elements 'cept Ian and we gotta find the other half, and then..." his voice trailed off and he gently touched his neck where the gem on his collar was.
