Manehattan Ports Normalized!
Aurora–The unreported shipments have begun to fall dramatically in quantity in the past few months. Manehattan officials are placing credit on increased policing in the area since a warehouse fire earlier in May. Some civilians in the area claim that they have spotted a number of guards and cloaked ponies moving around before the drop in unreported shipments, however, no one else has claimed to have seen such an event.

Sweet Apple Assault?
Core–Locals in Ponyville have reported animals attacking Sweet Apple Acres earlier this month. Local investigation has proved inconclusive, and the Apple Family has refused to comment on both what, exactly, attacked them, and who helped them fend it off, only stating that "they can handle it."

Sea Beast Sightings In Seaddle
Bridle Shores–There has been a sudden spike of massive sea beast sightings in Seaddle. Claims of seeing dragons have been common for centuries, however, in recent days, the number of claims that there have been something even larger off shore have grown exponentially, some even saying that it appeared artificial. Authorities have passed it off as a sea serpent or simply mistaking a ship for one, however, each sighting has stated that it was far larger than anything else seen before.
Two years have passed since an unknown calamity rendered the Elements inert, leaving only a new organization called the New Lunar Reserves to fight off the evils who wish to attack Equestria. Formed from a group of unlikely, yet extraordinary people and given a base between the cities of Ponyville, Cloudsdale and Canterlot, the New Lunar Reserves have been in fierce combat with another organization known only to them and the Princesses: the Cult of Harmony, a group that not only claims to know what caused the Elements to become inert, but want to use that reaction to warp the world in their image. After a raid to steal one of their prized beacons, the group was left gravely wounded, and with one of their own, Shining Shuffle, kidnapped by the enemy.

It is now June 16th, 1934. The corrupted light has claimed one of the NLR's own and, soon, they shall take it back, and extinguish the Cult of Harmony forever… but the Cult of Harmony may not be the only one wishing harm on Equestria.

>Excellent, you're here: to give a rundown for your entrance, recently, the NLR was called up to help a stallion named Thousand Leagues. When they got there(near Manehattan), they found out that there was a cave leading deeper into the earth, with signs of an underground river. Enemies were said to likely be(and proven to be) supernatural, if not spiritual.

>These orbs seemed to vanish into the flames before the bullets struck them, tinging the inferno white as they vanished into embers... and two of them appeared above Stefran. The one next to Tex, however, chimed a last time... then detonated in a bright explosion, trying to take Tex along with it.


>Roll 1d20 + 4 = 23 to hit Tex for Roll 1d20 + 10 = 13!

>One could imagine, just before the orb exploded, that her ears literally said "pls no". All this tunitis man.
>She was buffeted to the side of the cave, which she slid down and landed on her rump, her gun following close behind. She clutched her ears as they folded flat against her head.

"Kay, that wasn't a spirit! Fuck!"

>Attacks are determined by rolling a 1d20(+ your perception modifier), then the damage(+modifier) of the weapon. So a rifle for Midnight might be:

Roll 1d20 + 2 = 11
Roll 1d30 + 7 = 30 (Rifle is normally 1d30+4, but having a power of 4 gives you +3 for Bolt Actions and full turn actions)

>The other orbs, eerily, seemed to chime and bounce back and forth in glee at the explosion from their ally, who was now just a flurry of snow-like sparkles floating down onto Tex and the rocky terrain around her.

>Speaking of Tex, it is now her turn... unless she's lying there for the turn.

"Dance to this"

She fires, spraying her rounds into the group of orbs above her.

>The strange orbs let out the sound of shattering glass when they were hit, sparks jumping off of them and turning into the same, snow-like mist. However, before they could disappear entirely, they suddenly regained cohesion and began to move around more erratically.

>Raspberry broke free of the numbness spell and turned on her hooves, aiming at the two orbs before they could pull off any funny business. Unfortunately, a little time was wasted from jumping between targets.

Roll 1d20 - 2 = 13 to hit White Orb for Roll 1d12 + 2 = 9!
Roll 1d20 - 2 = -1 to hit other White Orb for Roll 1d12 + 2 = 6!

>Just as Raspberry's gun jammed, the first orb struck cracked and fell apart with the sound of metal grating against itself just over Stefran... before it, too, detonated in a blast of energy and light, though it was quite clearly dimmer than that which hit Tex.

>Final Chime!

>Roll 1d20 = 17 to hit for Roll 1d20 = 16!

>By the time the second crumbled and attempted to erupt in the same fate, Stefran had backed up just far enough to escape its blast radius entirely. With that, the caverns finally became quiet once more, only the lingering, final chimes in the air and noise of the underground river.

"Never heard of ghosts that blow themselves up..."
>Raspberry grumbled as she began to carefully unjam her revolver. She guessed she needed to really start moisture-proofing the weapons or something. With a sigh, she finally looked around and then trotted towards the exit of the cave.
"Everyone alright?"

"Sounds like we're in for trouble, then; who would send smart... bombs, I guess... to go kill this Thousand Leagues guy? This doesn't look like something the Cult would do..."
>Raspberry looked over to Tex, focusing on her bloody ears. She at least seemed to be able to hear, for now... the mare looked out from the exit. The path began to open up and start going down, with a long, underground river now bubbling up alongside it and flowing off ahead.

>The mare suddenly jumped up and spun on her heels, nearly juggling and dropping her revolver.
"C-come on! Warnings, Bombastic, warnings!"

Canis (The guilt master) 823092

"Someone with money, or a hell of a lot of experience with magic..."

>He said, now calmed as he realised these weren't ghosts but magic. Magic he could understand. He pulled his rifle from his back, putting away his revolver as he moved further down the path, scanning it before stopping to give the crew time.

"Right, I dont even know who this guy is yet."

>Tex's tinnitus was too strong for her to hear him, but she did see Raspberry suddenly react to something, and so she turned to it as well with rifle pointing right at him.

"Who the fuck?"

"Hey-hey-hey! Don't worry, he's on our side! He just hasn't been out in the field..."
>Raspberry loaded and holstered her revolver now that things were large enough for him to use her BAR. She stayed back next to Tex, keeping close as they could hear the rushing of a waterfall ahead. Sure enough, the path dropped off for a few feet; not enough to be lethal, but more than enough to get someone hurt.

>Perhaps more notable, however, was that, now they were at the waterfall, they could hear... music. What were just chimes were now a full chorus with violins joining in the small performance. Bright lights now rose high beyond the waterfall...

Midnight Dream!4do0M/C0RE 823109

"Huh, I haven't met him."
>Tex somewhat reluctantly holsters her gun.
"Hi, im Tex. Don't jump outa nowhere or you'll get shot. Welcome to the team."

>Porter continued on, she couldn't hear the music, since everything sounded like high pitched 'eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee'. With this severe diminishment of an important sense, she followed behind them, and kept her attention on the body language of the others. She stopped when they did and whispered.

"...Whats up?"

I don't know for sure but I think whatever those things were, they aren't natural and were made recently.

"So we've got a bunch of newborn musical spirits out to kill a guy hiding in a cave... and I thought my life was weird before."
>Raspberry sighed and drew her BAR, lying down on her belly at the edge of the path and popping out a makeshift bipod to see if she could peer ahead. Unfortunately, the light emanating from whatever lie ahead made it too difficult to get a good view on just what was happening down there. It, at least, seemed to be moving away... but, perhaps that was a bad thing. She looked over her shoulder at Tex, her tail wagging back and forth as she concentrated.

"They've got a little performance going on down there. If the chiming says anything, I'm guessing they've got more of those smart bombs with them."

>Where the path ended, it became not but a rocky wall, but, the drop into the water below did not seem that dangerous... with enough grit, it was plausible for someone to hop down. Of course, there was always the possibility of trying to peer down into the light and noise, hoping you didn't eventually get caught...

>Attempting to climb down the wall allows a roll for Evasion(to avoid being seen), then Toughness(if you fail) to mitigate the damage.

>Diving into the water below is a roll for Toughness(to avoid damage), then Evasion(if you fail) to avoid being seen.

>It was simple enough to get down the cliff, leaving him knee-deep in the water and close enough to the light and music to try and get a good look(Perception roll).

"The more we can get down there, the better of a strike we can get on them."
>Raspberry laid back down and tried to examine the light as well. She might not have had the best eyesight, but, she did have goggles and a tendency to be around very bright lights... besides, she could always just jump right on down.

>As Spyro made his descent down into the water, he began to hear the music die down... unfortunately, this was during a high point of their song: it was likely that they were now trying to locate him...

>Coincidentally, the light started to fade as well... but this did not help Midnight any. The good news was that the creatures did not seem to be able to find him, instead turning their attention towards scanning for that purple smudge. Passing him seemed to be something with the appearance of a pony wearing a robe, but it was clear that the robe was the torso of the equine, its head taken up by a red and gold helmet. If Midnight wanted, he could possibly get a sneak attack in on them...

>Unfortunately, being slow on anything was not a good idea, for she crashed right into the water, taking Roll 1d20 = 8 damage... and needing to roll Evasion, lest she, too, find herself spotted.

>Taking a last chance with the dimmer light, Raspberry squinted and began scanning over the musical lights... she wished there was a method to talk to Spyro about the possibility of him being spotted. Maybe she could talk to the Canterlot gals about it...

It was leaning on a long, golden spear, near-mortally wounded, but not dead yet.
