  1. Good morning everypony.  How's it going? :dash:

    I think the holidays really messed with my sleep schedule. :huh:  I've been staying up a lot later than I use to, even if the time to get up is the same. :maud:  Too easily distracted by videos. :wacko:  I fear the crash that will inevitability happen. :sealed:

    Have an AJ! :toldya:

      I hope your day goes well with plenty of coffee and muffins. :)

  2. @Blitz Boom It wasn't likely Minty, Flare Blitz and Wind Gale were as aware the abomination attacking the school was at one time a pony of Harrowmark. Now there was a name to the story Minty had told him about the school. The dealings Rising had with the trapped souls that borrowed his body until their return to Harrowmark painted just the tip of an iceberg that was Twisted's work. A true pity, but Rising hoped his suffering was over. While death in Harrowmark was not the most permanent, Flare put Meadowsong to rest here in Equestria. Maybe that'll be enough to stop his soul from being abused again. A lot of heavy thoughts to think about when in the presence of a good hayburger. It was rare to see such bewilderment in this day and age over a simple thing. To watch the observant expressions appear on Lily's face was the most amusement the detective has had since this whole ordeal began. The concepts of cauldrons and fireplaces being the primary sources of cooking in Equestria had long been in the past. Now everything was on grills, burners, pots, ovens and stoves. Either powered by magic or various forms of gas and coals. Faster, more reliable forms of cooking, as seen here on display for Lily with the Good Burg Burg's performance in preparing their meals. Maybe something they take for granted, but it's become such a normal part of their lives it was hard to notice at times. On top of all that, getting to experience a new type of food that base on it's assembly, must seem rather odd compared to the food of Harrowmark. Now the concept started making the detective think about what kinds of food Lily may have had to prepare for Twisted as his apprentice. Not something he wanted to think that much about really. Getting to the bench was a nice change of pace though. They needed to kill time anyways. "This kind of thing is common place. In the home, on the street. It's been this way for a long time now," he explained. "Equestria sure is a different place," pulling on memories of his short time in Harrowmark. Her skepticism was understandable for something new, but her sure was going to eat. Floating her one of the trays to sample. The extra energy wouldn't hurt while they're waiting. Setting the to-go tray on an empty part of the park bench he was finally able to partake of his own. If Lily didn't know how to eat, she'd be getting her demonstration when Rising lifted up the hayburger in both hooves and took a large bite out of it. The wonderfully cooked hay patty, so perfectly spiced and mixed with the lovely condiments. Munching away on a mouth full of his hayburger with puffed cheeks.

      They should have brought back Rara for the movie but maybe the voice actress wasn’t available to do it. :adorkable: @RaraLover would have loved for her to appear on the big screen. :Rara:

      @Rising Dusk Hello, my good friend! :kirin: No weather pone that I know of on our end I'm afraid. Our local weather pone must have taken a vacation. :dry: Or maybe they've given up on dealing with our crazy weather! :love:  @Twilight Luna, give us your weather pone! :fabulous:


      @Twilight Luna Yeah, I really do wish Rara was starred in the movie. :sunny: I haven't actually seen it, nor heard any of the songs yet. So yeah, I'm pretty late. :ButtercupLaugh: I hope it's really good, because I've been looking forward to watching this movie for a LONG time now. :rarity:

  9. @Blitz Boom Being locked in a magic nullifying cell made it understandable for the witch to be out of the loop on the attack of Manehatten. "The fear will not vanish for some time, but the swift actions of the O.M.I. helped negate what could have been a full blown panic," he admitted. "Twisted attacked the Sisters of Troy and our main street. All rebuked but not before enough of the city was aware of the attack. Sadly, he did attack a school as well," Rising confirmed Lily's guess. "The Captain saw to that herself. Her team stopped crystal spiders from foalnapping the children and destroy the queen along with an abomination." Passing along the small notes given to him when Minty came to bring him home. He had left to face Twisted when the attack began, but receiving the short message of their success was most helpful in keeping his emotions in check for the task at hoof. It wasn't the most pleasant of thoughts how the dark magics of Harrowmark could have affected such a magic sensitive unicorn if he approached the encounter in anger. "I thought you might like the view and this is where the best hayburgers in Equestria are," he chuckled. This out of place hayburger food cart was a neat little secret as most would expect the high class ponies that populate this part of the city would never part take of such a common food. Really though, they were shamefully most delighted by the food cart. A brilliant move by the vendor pony instead of setting up shop in the already populated food cart industry of the center city. Foreseeing a snide remark about bringing her to such a place with all that was happening in Harrowmark he made sure to add, "And this part of the city is the best place to be should something happen and we need to quickly deliver you home." Cryptic, he knew, but he preferred to hope the fellowship would enjoy their travel peacefully. "We're a little more... different in Equestria," he replied to her disbelief. Approaching the vendor, "Good Burg Burg, two hayburgers meals and another to go please," he greeted. The vendor mare earth pony, chocolate in color with a white and red buckball cap with 'Burg Burg' printed above the bill. "Oh, Detective! So nice to see ya again. Been a while since I last seen ya don't cha know. Coming right up!" she returned the greeting with a bubbly tune and a wide smile. Stepping behind her cart, she opened up on the cabinet to the storage under the food cart. Laying out three slabs of hay that had been formed into patties and held together by a dark sauce and various spices. The moment the slabs hit the silver surface, they let out harsh sizzles and steam erupted up around them and the wonderful scent of seasoned hay getting toasted. Next came a trio of seed peppered buns that she opened in halves and rolled across a small wheel above a tube, buttering up the insides before laying them on a less hot corner of the cooking top. Humming to herself as she placed out trays on the food cart attached to the side. With the buns a light brown, she scooped them up with a spatula in her mouth to toss them perfectly onto the trays. Quick tosses from behind the cart stacked the buns with lettuce, tomato and onions without even looking up. Next she came out with a red and yellow squeeze bottle in each hoof, twirling them around until she squirt rings of ketchup and mustard onto the stacks. Perfectly time for next the spatula went to work tossing the patties onto the buns then to finally top them with the other halves. Her tail swinging out a bucket of horseshoe shaped fried potatoes to lay a nice pile on each tray. Packing one tray into a to-go bag for the detective. Igniting his horn, he collected the prepared food trays and bag. Parting with a few Bits to pay for the meals. "Don't be a stranger now, ya hear?" she smiled and the detective nodded in kind. "Thank you, Good Burg Burg," he replied and walked over to an area nearby in the park with some benches to enjoy their meals.

      The expansion downloaded automatically but I’m still on the main story. I tried out the new defender class weapons but they’re way too OP this early in the game for me. I think that I’ve settled with the switch axe. It’s easier to use than the charge blade. Plus the wild swing swings are fun to do. :fabulous: 



      Muffins And coffee! :nom:


    3. Rising Dusk

      Rising Dusk

      @Twilight Luna Yeah the defender set is a catch up mechanic. Not a fan because then you lose out on the experience and practice against more complex monsters. I kept flipping back and forth between hammer and Lance. Spent 3 hours doing that against one monster.

      Thank you! :pinkie:

  15. @Blitz Boom "City ponies are more caught up in their own lives to pay all that much attention to what's going on around them," Rising chuckled as a taxi stallion and his carriage pulled up to the curb of the O.M.I. when flagged down by the detective. "Go ahead, it'll be fine," the unicorn offered and motioned ladies first to enter the cab with a smile. Their travels weren't all that far nor along particularly populated routes. For most of the trip it would just be the pair in the cab of the taxi pulled by a stallion more focused on the roads than a bauble looking in on Harrowmark. Settled into the cab, Rising gave the directions to the driver, who quietly nodded his head and trotted them away from the O.M.I. The trip should give Lily plenty of time to affix the scry to the Hearth's Warming ornament. This was the first time Rising had been out on the streets since Twisted's attack on the city. His attention much more focused on what was happening outside the cab than in it. It had been a few days since the attack, but the affects were apparent to the resident of Manehatten pony. The streets had been mostly cleaned up, making them more clean than they usually were. Local city law enforcement, rescue agencies and the good will of the local city ponies appeared to have done a great job. The underline message though was less ponies on the street, even this time of the evening. A few more on edge parents keeping their children closer than usual and much more brisk paces. Far a few between, most appeared to have moved on. Equestria couldn't claim it wasn't a frequent victim of strange and catastrophic events. A sad tell indeed. He'd have to get further details from his work when the time permitted, but based on their appearances, the agency was in full swing in regards to damage control. The cab stayed mostly on the main road, heading from one side of the city to the other. Long passing the apartment complex Rising lived in and even passed the townhouse his parents currently take residence. Only having to stop at a few intersections every now and then as a police pony directed the flow of traffic. As they moved on, the buildings became larger, more expensive. Made of much more valuable materials and greater degrees of decoration. Gated homes and apartments well outside of what a detective could afford. Most definitely heading to the high class part of the city. Even Minty lived out this way, but that wasn't their destination. Nor did it appear to be one of homes. The cab stopped at the curb next to what looked to be a lavish park with exotic plants and birds. Bash often came up to this park when he wasn't tending to his own garden that made the designer of this one most jealous. Rising's target though, was the out of place looking food cart. Climbing out of the cab, he paid the driver with a few Bits. "Ever have a hayburger before?" he inquired of his companion.
