"'Plummet to my death', she says," Hector replied, making a point of stretching his wings out as he said so. "You're funny, y'know that?"

"Does it really matter?" Hector asked the dragon. "We need to be asking 'Who took it?' and 'Where is it now?' before we worry too much about the thing itself."

Grease nods. "Fair point. It's not like they'd let me use it for anything anyhow." He then turns to Ruby Blossom. "I'm sorry, I forgot about you in the wake of all that. I'm Grease the mechanic. What exactly do you do?" He pauses for a moment, then grins a little and finishes his statement with "Old Bean."

Nightshade continues to pace around the room.

"Rookie? Isn't he just the cutest thing ever."

She stops in front a blank wall and stares intensely at it for a moment. Then says to herself.

"The Insightful Dragon? Isn't that the thing that allows it's user to read the dragonic language? A novel trinket at best and meaningless without text for it to translate. Not even that rare. It shouldn't even merit our attention. Or was that the Dragonsoul? No, the Dragonsoul was the thing that steals the essence of a dragon. I already have one of those in my collection."


Turns top the group.

"Anyone wanna trade for a Dragonsoul for a muffin? I missed breakfast and I'm kinda hungry... No wait, in fact, I had a complete breakfast before coming here and couldn't take another bite. Thanks for the offer tho."


She then walks over to a potted plant and fiddles with it as if she is investigating it.

Brisk Iron calmly walked into the room with a folder tucked under her wing. "We have a lot to cover and not much time.  Grease, could you please lock the door?"

I keep a keen eye, and keener mind, old sport! And much more besides!

Ruby gives a good natured chuckle at the light ribbing on her accent. She keeps an eye on the new arrival as Trotson hides shyly between her forelegs.

"And this must be the commander for this operation! Well now, let's see just what we've gotten ourselves into?"

She thinks to herself as she listens quietly.

"I'd like to be able to open the door again thank you.

There is more than one dilemma at hoof.  Due to this, we will have Major Delight assisting us.  The first is the matter of the Monocle of the Blind Dragon.  I believe the theft of the decoy is due to a former STOMP member, Mul Braynor.  He used to be an excellent explorer but he let greed and ambition get the better of him.  He attempted to kill the team with a cave in but gravity saw to his demise.  Unfortunately, he had the last laugh.  He figured out a way to tamper with the mass teleport spell and left several of us...injured.  It's subtle but my wings aren't the same size anymore and I've had to adjust flight for the rest of my life.  His betrayal is one of the things that led to a lot of our modern security protocol.  While I thought he was dead, something always nagged at me.  So the Monocle of the Blind Dragon, the artifact we recovered on his last expedition, was hidden away.  The fact that the decoy was the only thing stolen and that the attack on the base caved in the tunnel to the teleporter room feels like it's him or someone who is carrying out his wishes after the fact."

"So he's either still alive or lives on in someone's memory. While we continue, what skills was Braynor assigned to the team for?" Grease asks curiously.

"His original designation was as a navigator and "survivor". Very much the classic adventurer. Over time, he showed that he was very much a jack of all trades with his only glaring flaws being the lack of flight or overt magical ability."

Nightshade leaves the potted plant alone and listens to Brisk as she walks in.

"Security protocol? That might explain why I have been finding all these hidden arcane sentry runes all over the room. I have been systematically disabling them for you. It's a free courtesy I do at no additional cost."

She causally walks to the other side of the room.

"Why would Mr. Mul break into a vault fulled with relics of unimaginable destructive power only to steal this one object?"

She ponders for a bit.

"He must need it for something really important. He must of thought it would give him some kind of advantage over all the other things he could of taken. We could just ask him what he intended to do with it once he comes back. I mean once he founds out he has a decoy he will come back for the real thing for sure. But I can't imagine someone as skilled as him resorting to the same tricks as before that would easily give away his identity. I mean why give up the advantage of everyone thinking he was dead?"

"This one artifact has the ability to find others. I'm assuming the reason he sent somepony else, if it is him, was because he didn't want to be on site himself. Plus, I wonder about his state of life based on the description of one of the ones who detained Silver Swirl."

"Detained?" Grease scrunches his eyebrows together, and a spark passes between them. "Oh. I wouldn't have called that detainment. Are you thinking of the Mad Hatter or the Blind Gryphon? Both seemed to be in rather debased states."

A shiny that detects other shinies? That is ingenious!

She says with approval.

"If we have someone else that knows where this guy is we should ask them. I'm sure if we trade them a tasty snack they will tell us. I know I would."

Post  Fury of the Tempest on Sun Aug 03, 2014 8:39 am

Gearick decided he would do his best to ignore the insane nature of his new teammates, and focus on what was really important... the pony behind all this, the sabotage of the teleportation room, and the stealing of a powerful artifact.... which luckily, was a decoy. “From the sounds of it... he’s going to be difficult to take on...” The unicorn said thoughtfully, looking into the distance as he thought. “Especially if he managed to pull this off... he’s probably well prepared...” Turning to Brisk Iron, he asked. “I assume we have a lead on where he might be?”

"Nightshade, I suggest you take a seat for your own benefit.  As far as leads, that's what the decoy will be.  It will serve as a tracker, which reveals that so far they haven't tried to use it yet.  

...what do you mean by Mad Hatter, Grease?"

"Skale and I discussed a certain mare seen on the base. Supposedly a big hoodoo voodoo unicorn. When Insaw her, she reminded me of a character from Lewis Maroll; and so, for lack of a better name, we agreed to call her Mad Hatter."

Looks at Brisk Iron and shrugs

"Whatever you say. You're the boss."

Trots over to a chair and sits down.

"You know, if they blew up the teleportaion room they must of wanted to make a quick escape and not to be followed. My arrival must of accelerated their plans. Who could blame them? They must of heard I was coming and they feared a real tussle."

She does a few quick jabs in the air to show her fighting prowess.

"If you want I could hook up a sigil on the teleportion room that if they try to use it again it will send them to a containment cell of your choosing or if you want the bottom of a volcano. That is of course unless... unless this is a swivel chairs."

She looks under the chair.

"It is! Eee-hee-heee-aha ha ha ha ha~"

She starts to rapidly spin in the chair.

Brisk Iron waves a wing and the chair suddenly magnetically locks, causing Nightshade to slide off. "The hallway leading to it was blown up. The room itself is still intact. Regardless, she teleported out with her own ability. Also, there are to never be any sigils placed in the teleporter room."

Nightshade falls to the floor in a dizzy daze.

"Sure thing... boss... room spinning... gonna be sick... uhha."

She lays on the floor motionless for the time being.

Major Delight swiftly stood up an walked to the front, The other issue is a matter of global importance.  Due to other matters, I've been tasked with recruiting explorers and this lot fits the bill.  We believe to have found a temple which may contain the Wand of Eternal Skies.  So I'm seeking volunteers to help retrieve it.

"So Mul Braynor is a lot like Tilde. There's not much we can do except keep an eye out for him." Grease says, leaning back on his tail. "Major? Is that in the equestrian army? Eh, it makes no matter. I'm in."

Ruby stands back a bit for her part, watching the antics of her new teammates and employer. Her ear twitching slightly whenever some new bit of information is brought up as she mulls it over in her head.

History rolls!:
You get a history roll! And you get a history roll! Everyone gets a history roll!

20+11=31 on Brisk Iron
10+11=21 on Major Delight
16+11=27 on the Monocle
5+11=17 on Braynor
14+11=25 on The Wand of Eternal Skies

And assuming my detective senses are allowed to tingle...
The Destiny in question:
My Detective Senses are Tingling
Your deductive skills are serving you well. When making a Perception check to investigate an object you may roll twice and take either result.
[*]Similarly, you know the best ways to dig up dirt on people. Whenever you make a History check to identify people or objects and their associated histories you may roll twice and take either result.
It becomes:
20+11=31 on Brisk Iron(it's a keeper Very Happy)
10+11=21 on Major Delight
16+11=27 on the Monocle
20+11=31 and a nat 20 on Braynor!
14+11=25 on The Wand of Eternal Skies

All the other rolls were lower (8,5,8, and a nat 1 if you're curious). But a pair of Nat 20's makes everything better if I can use em.

While laying face down Nightshade raises her hoof up and says in a some what obstructed voice

"Ancient ruined temple? Relic of unspeakable destruction? Count me in."

She then lets her hoof drop to the floor.

OOC:
I usually don't like long sweeping posts of History rolls.  Easier to deal with in pbp than real time but has the roll play vs role play problem.  The other issues are combinations of the info not being available, there's so little info that the crit is of little use, or that the NPC is about to tell you that info anyways.  Crit info will be PMed.  Also, a clarification: I'm assuming the Destiny is based off of things you have in your possession or characters you're directly interacting with.  Arguably the wand, monocle, and Mul Braynor wouldn't get re-rolls.

Major Delight winced a bit when Tilde was mentioned but otherwise responded to Hector, I'll admit, I do get tired of the ancients being needlessly poetic and not getting to the point.  The Wand of Eternal Skies allows a single pony to control the sun and moon, along with all of the accompanying phases regardless of type or power.  The wand is also supposedly attached to time magic.  The wand is obviously dangerous on a grand scale but most texts seem to downplay the direct danger compared to other dangerous artifacts.
