The group cautiously advances forward, and eventually they notice the tunnel terminate at a T intersection.

Everyone keeping an eye out allows Iota to suddenly stop right before they enter the line of sight of the bizarre, metallic insect thing skittering into view. The metal insect-like creature, which has six long spike-tipped legs extending out of an abdomen that's attached to a equine front body with hooved forelegs - sort of like some kind of metal pony drider - comes in from the left, pauses at the intersection to seemingly sniff the air, before continuing straight on to the right tunnel, vanishing from view. The skittering sound grows distant, but now it's obvious there's numerous skittering sounds all around the party throughout what seems to be a fairly expansive tunnel system.

The twins remain silent as the bug-pony-bot moves by them, and then once its out of sight, "Sssssoooo.... what kind of dragon was that?"

Recon freezes at the sight of the other mechanical monstrosity.

"That's no dragon," she replies in a hushed tone. "The archmage had pictures of these on his walls. 'Regulatory Arachnoids', he calls them."

She frowns.

"They're not Project Recon," she muses. "The construction's different. The archmage said something to me about constructs being a hobby of his. If these are his creations, it's doubtful that we'll be able to predict anything by comparing them to me. The ponies that worked on me weren't very good engineers, or else they would've been able to program their toys without murdering ponies in their sleep and stealing their souls."


Actions:

For a moment, Broken didn't say anything as he glanced between the 'Regulatory Arachnoid' and the metal changeling. While he had always known that his ambition to become the new ruler of Equestria had been the right course of action because... well, all he was lacking to take over and become the rightful ruler of the great land of Equestria was a body able to handle it, the fact that he was seeing evidence to support Celestia's monstrous nature was... actually fairly reassuring. Bringing these crimes to light would make the process of consolidating his own power all the easier.

Sighing briefly, Broken allowed his horn to glow as he cast a spell... not on himself, but on said metal changeling. "Well, you're still a robot. Maybe you can talk it around to our side... or at least to ignore us." He muttered aloud, even as he cast the same spell on himself quietly in order to listen in to the conversation.

Actions:

Many Tongues (3) – 3/Day
Preparation Time: 5 seconds
For the next ten minutes, you or an ally you can see gains the ability to speak and understand all languages (this includes reading and writing those languages, if they have a written form). Creatures that can hear the target understand what he or she says as if he or she were speaking their native language. If the target can hear another creature that is speaking a language, he or she understands what that creature says as if it were speaking the target’s native language.
2/3 Target Recon
3/3 Target himself.

Brightheart keeps his sword close to bear, but trusts his accomplices to handle things for now. He had little doubt he could fend one of the 'arachnoids' off, but if there were more, they had to be careful.

...Continuing to destination... Hive responsibilities pending... Update received: Lava flows obstructed by soot, move to remove. Reaction: Unamused...

Recon suddenly finds herself able to understand the sequence of chitters coming from the Arachnoid, though it eventually grows fainter as the mechanical creature ventures further into the tunnels.

Recon blinks as the new understand hits...then smirks as an idea comes to her.

In the next moment, Princess Celestia herself stands smirking at the group.

"Follow my lead and stay quiet," she whispers in the princess's voice.

Then she says aloud: "Hello? Are any Arachnoids nearby that can spare a moment?"

"Because impersonating the divine leader of the country is the best idea," Brightheart murmurs, though he still obliges her request and follows in step. He has to admit, she's not half bad at mimicking the royal attitude.

Broken fell in line, deciding to follow the changeling's lead on this one; It was either going to work out amazingly or get them all killed and a small part of his was kind of curious which way the coin was going to land.

Recon, in the guise of Celestia, speaks aloud into the dim tunnel corridor. Her words echo off the walls, eventually reaching the arachnoid that had just passed the party. Having just entered a side passageway, it backpedals back into view, rotating itself to it's facing Recon, and comes close, stopping a few meters from Recon.

Recognizing VIP number 002, Celestia... Engaging protocol: Royal Sewers... Updating Cloud Hivemind... Mood: Reverent.

Its arachnid torso tips down, allowing its equine-shaped upper body to bow down like a regular pony would, both forelegs touching the ground. Despite being composed entirely out of metal, its body parts bend smoothly like a real creature's coat. It opens it's mouth, and a flat modulated voice issues from a speaker within.

"Welcome, Princess Celestia. What is the purpose of your visit?"

Recon snaps out of her smirk and adopts Princess Celestia's more regal disposition before the arachnoid comes back into view. Calm. Serene posture. Just enough smile to feel welcoming.

"I have a group of experts interested in studying the dragon eggs we have in storage. Would you mind showing us the way?"
