  1. I guess this is a mix of character description and storytelling. I kind of found myself in a mood the other night and just typed away and this is the result. Had the idea for a good while now but hadn't really expanded on it yet. Still a work in progress, feel free to offer suggestions, ask questions regarding what's written, along with past and future events regarding the character. Warning, some parts graphic. Vernarbt Invictus, it means Scarred but Undefeated. The first part is German, the second is Latin. He's a general within a primarily batpony nation called Abendstern. They've had roughly a hundred years of peace so to provide experience for new recruits, every few years a dragon hunt is held. They keep a look out for any that venture near and then lure/drive them into a massive pit where they keep it pinned down with artillery and airships. Soldiers dig themselves into place and wear the beast down until they can close in and deliver the killing blow. Vernarbt has participated in three hunts. The first one he spent nearly a week stuck in a trench. While the dragon was focused on another section of the pit he arranged to move ahead with a cannon. they got dangerously close and covered the camouflaged the cannon as best they could. The dragon grew restless from the constant harassment and paced all around the pit, preventing large advancements from sneaking behind it. When it came into position, Vernarbt ordered them to fire a volley, which grabbed the dragon's attention. It charged towards them and the cannon was shot point blank through it's eye. It slammed to a stop and reared back in pain, only to fall dead seconds later. Vernarbt climbed onto the it's head and shouted victory with his sword held aloft. He instantly became the poster child for the nation's military. Most stallion's had their fill after a hunt, but when another dragon was cited a few years later, he requested to participate once again. His superiors were all for this as it was great for propaganda. This time he organized for several cannons to close in on the dragon till it was pinned against the side of the pit. From there they would concentrate their firepower and bring it down swiftly. The dragon managed to take out one of the artillery crews, creating a gap in his line. Vernarbt acted swiftly and flew over with a few soldiers to fill the gap before the dragon saw the chance to break through. Noticing the lack of firing from that direction, the dragon charged to escape. Vernarbt knew his strategy put more soldiers at risk than the last time, so he assigned a Unicorn mage to every Unit so they could cast a shield that would keep them safe from fire. The shield was up and the cannon was ready, however one couldn't fire the cannon while being inside the shield completely, as the recoil caused too much of a disturbance. With his front half outside of the shield, he held the firing cord taut in his mouth. When the dragon was directly ahead he pulled the cord and as expected the dragon breathed a mass of flames upon them. The shield was slightly off from where it needed to be and so when Vernarbt had pulled back, his snout still stuck out of the shield. Enveloped by the flames, his exposed fur and the flesh beneath it were burned, and he fell back in agony. The dragon was hit squarely in the chest and although this did not kill it, the blow was enough to make it turn back, preventing it from escaping. It was then bombarded by the other cannons and died. Vernarbt was unable to celebrate his victory, for he was in need of immediate medical attention. He would survive the injury, but he would be left with a fair portion of his skull exposed, along with losing most of his ability to smell and having a severe speech impediment. He was seen as both a hero and an excellent tactician, however his disfigurement repulsed many of the upper class, and his injury made it questionable as to whether or not he could continue to serve in the field. In public he'd travel with a face cover which kept things like smoke and dust away while making him presentable, and he'd adorn the many medals he'd now been awarded as a reminder to others that he was defined by his accomplishments. He'd go on to partake in a third hunt, this time in command of an airship coordinated with a fleet to drive the dragon into the pit. He provided instruction for soldiers below to carry out his previous strategy. The dragon however would manage to outmaneuver most of the artillery units or destroy them. It's wings were completely useless so it attempted escape by climbing up the wall. Digging into the barren rock and earth it caused an upper ledge to collapse, along with the soldiers and heavier guns that were on it. It climbed closer to freedom than any other dragon had in decades, but it could not account for Vernarbt Invictus. It reached the top only to be fired upon by his airship. Losing it's footing, the dragon fell back on a jagged rock that once made up part of the ledge. The landing resulted in the rock not only severing the dragon's spine but it drove though it's body and out the otherside. The Pit fell silent for a moment, then a satisfied Vernarbt exited his airship to inspect his work. The soldiers below looked up in astonishment at the lone stallion above and began cheering. The only thing making this moment imperfect for him was his inability to actually smile with pride. Having secured himself glory and respect from superiors, he was made general and assigned with planning strategies against Abendstern’s Neighbors should war ever break out. He now lives on a small estate with a specialized caretaker, away from any of the major cities to avoid the pollution and to enjoy the peace and quiet. The estate is situated near ideal grounds for training exercises which he oversees on occasion. It’s been years since the last hunt. More than usual. Other methods are being developed to ready new recruits, but he knows that one day another dragon will be sighted, and he’s looking forward to it. Although these dragon hunts may be seen as cruel, particularly for their longevity and with more focus on their sentience recently in the series, it should be noted that this idea was concocted ages ago, and that with such a long stretch of peace it’s deemed necessary in maintaining the quality of the nation’s military, and that a more traditional view of dragon’s is held. The corpses also serve a purpose, as large dragon scales could be used as hoof held shields, or more commonly cut and fitted as pieces of light armor. The Skin beneath but more so the prized wing membrane would be blackened and tanned to leather for making highly durable and fire resistant trenchcoats which would be awarded to those who went above and beyond the call of duty in the pit. The dragon’s intestines were notably used in making the airsacs within airships, and were both a better performing and cheaper material than what could be made synthetically at the time.
  2. Whether it's Steam, GameFAQs, or private message someone at a browser game I play, I barely get any replies about anyone has this game for the console. Maybe I'm stupid and have an ugly personality, I don't know but I'm always angry to know I barely get a response, or if anyone has that game at least to play with. I haven't thought of asking this here but seeing this is a big community, I'm giving a shot if someone here must have the game still. If you have that game for PS3, let me know.
  3. Prolog: Ten years have pass since “Hell Day” and World War 3 has been a bloody fight for both humans and there equestrians allies. Most of the civilian human race has been moved to Africa and South America to the safe zones and there Inhuman enemies have been kept at bay in the north. Now the war has come to braking point for the Allies. One worldwide attack will decide the fate of the war and if darkness will rule the earth. December 20, 2025 joint forces base Kars, Turkey The Command Chief Master goes to the room of the Lieutenant Colonel to give him the reports of the day and wake him up. She comes in seeing the room is a mess and the Lieutenant Colonel is still sleeping. “Malik, it’s time to rise and shine”, she said and give him a little push. He turns over and goes back to sleep. “Lieutenant Colonel Malik, get your lazy butt out of this bed and go to meet your men! Don’t make me beat your but boy, you’re not too old for it!” she yell at him pulling the covers off the bed and forcefully awakening him. He gets up pissed, cussing and saying he should have never made her an E-9 but, he gets dressed as she reads the reports for the day from a tablet computer. “About time you got up. Your wife has been asking about you and you know my feelings about her. Also Longwei just got in and he started eating a changing in-front of the rookies. You need to talk to him about doing that, the men are already fearful as it is. I really dislike them both but, at least Longwei I know were his loyalties are and I know the story with him. “, She said as she helps him with his gear. “I’m not in the mood today for this! You have been saying the same things since my wedding day and you never have liked her! I love her and she is my wife get used to it! And for Longwei, I will talk to him. He is a vicious relative of the Monstrous sky terrors you know and he is like all dragons, they love showing off how good a hunter they are. But don’t start any mess today! I had a hive mind memory nightmare last night and I have been up with HQ all night! ”, Malik yells with his eyes glowing golden. “I did not know you had those memories. I had heard some people go crazy from them but, I did not know you all of you had them. I am sorry for hating your wife, it just I feel she has change you. You act different and it’s like you are a new person from the little boy I raised. I am very sorry and I will try to be nicer to her.”, his mother said. “I am sorry for yelling at you, it’s just with everything and what HQ told me last night I have not been sleeping well. Come on let go to morning payers, today we all really need It.”, Malik said. They give each other a hug and go to morning payers. As they head there his mother reads off the rest of the reports and he does not like what he is hearing. After prayers all the battle group forces head to the Mission briefing room and Malik goes to the front of the room with his mother beside him and watches the troops come in. He sees his wife Captain fleur de lis come in checking the supplies of her M-5 medical bag and the two Russian Special Forces Officers, Sergeant Major Gedeon and Staff Sergeant Aleksandrina, talking as they walk past. Then he sees his new rookies for the first time. Most of them are dress in a mix of civilian clothing and varies military gear and are green 17 years olds conscriptes and don’t look like they could fight. “It’s worst they you told me. How I am going to follow my orders with this lot? There just high school kids and most of them are scare of their allies” He said to his mother beside him. He sees the rookies try to find places on the far side of the room from their changelings and equestrians allies. After everyone is seated Malik starts the Mission briefing. “I have some order from HQ that need to be readied before we start the briefing. As of today all IASF forces will be combined into one military. The highest rank CO in the area will take over command of units or make new mix forces units. That means I will be taking over command of the brigade and we will become the Air-force 1st joint Special operations brigade. Also, we have been asked to test some new weapons in combat. The FNH scar Heat Adaptive Modular Adaptive Combat weapon system A3 and the HK 416 A3 will be replacing many of the weapons in use now.”, Malik hear groans of discontent after the men hear that and he goes on “I know you like your old stuff but, the new scar is many weapons in one and both the scarA3 and 416A3 have the chemical makeup as dragon skin. They will not over heat and were made for the combat of WW3. Our old weapons will be going to the Civilian Irregular Defense and Civil Guard. Our snipers will be testing 3 new long-range fire support/ anti-materiel rifles.” Malik points at two earth equestrians to sit one down on the table. “They are 30mm sniper weapons and All 3 has a maximum range over 4000+ meters and can even snipe fast moving missiles. Only non-humans can use and move around with this system with relative ease.” he said and sits something down next to it. Malik turns on a 3d hologram that projects a map into midair “Now for the mission, Today is the day people! At 1300 hours we will take part in the world wide attack of all Millennium and Santorio corporation forces. The goal is to push them back to the 60th parallel north and 40th parallel south. If our forces succeed in doing this, the war will be over in south and we will make the push to their arctic circle and Antarctic strong holds and ends this once and for all. Our part we be to attack the Azerbaijan Stone Mining Field Labs in The republic of Georgia code name the mines.” he points at the 3D map. “As you can see these labs are miles underground and have extremely heavy defenses. So, HQ is giving us the use of the satellite weapon Thor to destroy this complex. We will have no air power for this because HQ needed all of our jets and helicopters for a different attack so; we are given some drop ships from the space fleet from Field Marshal king Sombra . There is a rare ore around the labs that blocks radar and they only can see out to 20 miles, so we will land and have to hike 20 miles to the target. So here the plan, because dragons and unicorn’s on their broom’s will not set off the AA guns, Lilija unicorn’s and I will fly over the area to do recon first and to find and target the AA defense. The unicorn’s will use the C-21 Dragon VTOL Assault Ship to tow them with a rope to the combat area and Longwei and I will ride on top of the Albatross heavy-lift drop ship. Sniper squad will take the small C-21 Dragon VTOL Assault Ship land 1st and take up sniper positions to take out the AA guns. After sniper squad is in place, the rookies of good Company will land north of the Mining Field in the Albatross heavy-lift drop ship with Sergeant Major Gedeon leading it and move to edge of the mining fields and wait. Because of our heavy losses, bad company will be made of Aatto squad of earth equestrians , the US Marine rifle platoon and the changeling company with Lieutenant Atherton leading it. Bad will be using the 77 Heavy-Troop Carrier and Overlord troop gunship and land south of mining fields. Bad will be carrying the thors hammer laser to paint the target. One small platoon of each company will stay at the LZ for security of the drops ships. The sign to begin the attack will be the song “We're Not Gonna Take It “and it will be on the world wide link. Bad will turn on the laser first to paint the target and then the sniper will take out the AA defenses. Remember it will take thor 10 minutes to link up and lock on so we have to hold out for that long. The 77 and overlord dropship, once the attack starts, will fly in and give us the air cover. After thors has a lock we will have 8 minutes to reach the minimum safe distance before it fires, so move your butt and don’t fall behind. If we fail to get a good lock then, we will have to remove the core of the muon-catalyzed fusion reactor on one of the drop ships and take it inside of the labs and use it as a bomb. This lab has to be taken out! Some of you have not seen a changeling bat so here is what one looks like”, Malik brings two photos. “. Bats come in two sizes. Most are between 5.6–6.5 feet tall and Weigh about 140–240 lbs. and there is the monsters size that are 50 feet high and weight of 4 tons. The smaller ones are take about 5-10 rounds to put down. The monster ones have the ability of a sonic screech that is powerful enough to destroy structures. To kill one of the monsters you need a lot of fire power like air power or anti-tank weapons. At the base there will thousands of the small bats and an unknown number human armed forces on us so, stay together and listen to your CO’s if you want to live. Now anything anyone wants to ask or add before we end this briefing?” Malik looks around for any questions. Every rookie raises their hands like a group of excited school kids. “I am not a changeling if that what you all want to know. I was the first one to get a changeling organ transplant and one of the side effects is that you grow a tapetum lucidum layer of tissue in the eyes. It why my eyes are gold colored.” Half of the rookies put their hands down. “Yes, changelings can look like anyone or thing but only elites can fool most people. Just look them in the eye and you can tell who’s human or changeling.” Most of the rookies put their hands down. One of the older Somali girl soldiers with a Russian Army Afghanistan Chest Rig on stands up. “Dragons enemies yes? How you ride dragon and why be your friend?” she ask. Malik smiles and looks at Longwei lying down in the back. “Back when I was a Captain, my platoon was out on patrol when we saw a dragon was in one of the traps. This one was different than the rest in that it was it was ebony wood colored with jade yellowish-green cat-like eyes and I saw its control collar was knocked off. In the past we have seen dragons runaway when the controller was gone and this one was rare looking and was to pretty to kill so, I told my team to watch my back and I move to cut it loose. I pull my G-10 Espada knife to cut the netting off of it and told it I am letting you go. When I cut it loose he jump back some and looked me in the eyes and asked in English why I did that and I told him why. We talked some and I learned much and because I spare his life he told me i owned it now. As a show of good faith Longwei told me to ride on his back and when we got back to base and after some debate, I got the Colonel to let Longwei into my platoon(the Major General told the Colonel to give me free rein to do as a like) . Longwei spying, recon, and enemy info has saved many lives over the years and he has got other dragons to join our side. They hate Millennium for enslaving there kind and they want the same things us. There extremely aggressive when they have a control collar on but with it off there peaceful and very friendly, but have attitude. Most dragons are very curious creatures and very intelligent. Without a control collar there not our enemies remember that. How I ride him you ask? Well Longwei and I design the dragon saddle from a Western saddle so, someone can ride and fight in the air with a dragon. Now any more questions?” Malik looks around and no one has anything to add. “All right then. Make sure you wear your shemagh, goggles, radio, ammo carriers, camelback and armor if you think you need it, you’re going to be running and hiking. Make sure dress for cold weather and if you need to know anything else ask your CO. dismiss.” Everyone leaves to get ready for battle. Malik sits on the back of Longwei listening to music playing over the radios and watching the display in his HUD goggles. He look to his left and sees the unicorn’s dress only in their light MultiCam ACU being tow behind the C-21 with their GPMG scars and belts of ammo hook onto their brooms. Looking at these super strong 7 foot Amazon equestrians woman he could see were all the legends about witches came from. looking around again all of them looked like the stuff nightmares were made of and the way he was dress with his flight suit on and his shemagh pulled up over his face, they all looked like some Invading demon army. As they get near the border it starts snowing and he gets ready to check the combat area for other aircraft. “This is Lieutenant Colonel Malik call sign pigeon. Is there anyone mining today?” he sees aircraft KC-10 call sign goat come up and his HUD goggles. “It’s been a long time pigeon! I have not heard from you since we both were fighter ace pilots in the 99nd Tactical Fighter Squadron. We should meet some time and have some tea and talk about old time. ”, he said with others talking in the back ground over the radio. “I would like that man, you can meet my wife and we can catch up. What are you doing here?” Malik said and hears more talking in the back ground over the radio. “Well we were making our run from Tehran to Odessa pumping gas, when we got some birds. We can out run them but, there is a big bird and about 500 little birds our tail. We should be long gone by the time you get here. What are you in man? I not seeing anything on my HUD beside you name and call sign.” He asks. “Longwei the dragon, now get off the radio Major goat.” Malik said with a smile. “Yes sir, Lieutenant Colonel Pigeon sir! The bet is still on from the Round Table were we made ace in a day. You many have 16 medals and Air Force Cross but, I just got my Distinguished Flying Cross for the Round Table and I have 13 medals now. Anyways, be careful out there.” He signs off. Malik happy with the news that they will have to deal with so many bats now, tells Longwei he is going to take a nap and wake him when they get to the release point. When they get to the release point instated of wakening him, Longwei jumps off the back of the drop ship and falls 300 feet before leveling out and laughing when he wakes up and almost falls off his back. They arrive over the target and start locking targets in. Malik checks to see were the grounds forces are and he see one group is behind. He sends a text to Sergeant Major Gedeon “why are you not in place?” He get back some of the rookie can’t keep up and are too scary to go on and he text back “just tell them to stay where they are at and get in your place”. Malik goes back to picking targets and he sees why they had to hike in. The base has lines of machine guns pits with mk 47 grenade launchers, anti-aircraft mines, ZSU-23-4 Shilka AA guns, Phalanx CIWS and m167 Vulcan air defense guns. There is even an Aegis Combat System and men with Stinger and other Man-portable air-defense systems walking the base. He receives a text that all units are ready and in place and they all wait for 1300 hours to come. He watches in his HUD as one of the snipers takes aim at a solider with a stinger and he hears the song start. Some of the enemy soldiers hear it over in their radios and start nodding along with it. The laser from the south team comes on and the enemy runs into their fighting positions and start firing on the laser team. The sniper team and north team let loose with their heavy weapons and explosions start happening all over the base as High explosive incendiary sniper rounds and 40 mm grenades take out defenses. The unicorns and Malik from the air do command and control of the battle field. “More LAW, RPG 7, and M136 AT4 on those Phalanx CIWS and m167 Vulcan air defense guns, were not carrying them back you know. Used those M1060 sparingly, the bats are not here yet. Just use the M433 HEDP and M397. Save the Milkor MGL-140 for the bats” he said over the radio to different ground forces. One of the unicorns tells him they have SEAD of AA guns and she calls in an air strike. “The rain is coming, take cover.” He sees from the scope of one of the snipers that two earth equestrians have gone full pony and are ripping enemy soldiers apart. “Someone get there butts in cover and make them change back before they get shot” Malike said over the radio. The unicorns and Malik fly to a higher altitude as air-to-surface missiles and rockets hit their targets. He guides in AGM-88 super HARM’s on the Aegis Combat System and watches it burn with a smile on his face. “We now have SEAD on all targets and it looks like all human ground forces are dead. Ok, good job everyone! This is easier then I --” he stops as he see a cloud of bat coming out from the center of the base. “BATS! BATS! BATS! Firing line on me air team! Gunships come in hot and fast now and used the Multi-Purpose Ballistc Missile at the back edge of the cloud. Everyone take cover and use 40mm M1060 and any heavy weapons you have first after the burst and then free to fire and all teams move to the laser!” He pulls his GPMG scar off the saddle horn and loads a M1060 into the Ergonomic Grenade Launching Module under it. The unicorns stand up on their brooms like a surfer on a board and come into a line formation with him. “Everyone get ready and no one look into the burst or you will go blind. “ Malik said over the radio. The cloud of bat is four miles away when the Ballistc Missile flies under them and into the cloud of bats. He watches as the missile splits into multiple warheads and closes his eyes as it detonates in massive explosion in mid-air. He feels the heat of it even from three and a half miles away and waits tell it over before opening his eyes. He hears the rookies, some crying, asking what just happen over the radio. “That was the Multi-Purpose Burst Missile Mk.I. Once it hits its target it creates a powerful burst with a diameter of 5,000ft. Most times we don’t use it around TIC because it’s a very powerful thermobaric weapon and it has an Inflammation effect. Now, 2nd and 3nd wave of bats are coming and we have to hold for 3 minutes and the ships we be here in 4 minutes so, fight like the devil coming for you because it is.” Malik said and get ready for what coming. The bat come at them like a dark rain and when they get in range they open up with everything they have. 40mm grenade, RPG, general purpose machine gun and heavy sniper rounds fly into the cloud of bats exploding with hundreds of burning bat bodies falling from the sky but, still they come. When the bat get within 200 yards the witches break from Malik side diving into a dogfight and everyone goes free. He cuts loose an empty 400 round ammo can from the saddle and Longwei fly over the cloud of bats to pick his targets. They dive into the cloud with Longwei chasing down bats, barbequing some with his fire and eating any he could get with Malik shooting away. He turns seeing a unicorn with 6 bats on her tail. “Vanessa, you got bats on your tail. Break right when I say and we will get them”, Maliks said reloading his gun again and dropping an empty can. He gets behind her and tells her to break and he let loose with his GPMG scar. As they fly by Longwei catches a bat trying to pull up and he rips it apart like it paper with some of the blood flying on Malik. The killing over takes all the non-human soldiers and it over takes him to with his eyes going pure gold. He hears Estasi Dell Anima playing over the radio with a mix of battle cries, crying, growls, and all kinds of inhuman sounds and the entire world is a killing field. All he thinks and does is kill more bats not thinking or worrying about the rounds and RPGs flying past him. A bat jump on his back trying to pull him off and he draws his sig P226 Combat and shoot past his head killing it. They all lose track of time and fight in a nearly uncontrollable, trance-like fury killing anything and helping their friends when they need it. He throws a hand grenade and takes out 7 bats when a sound of someone screaming in pain breaks the trance. Malik see one of the rookies has got picked up by a bat and is firing away trying to get it off of him. “Dam it!! Longwei you take the bat and I will grab the man”, Malik said putting his GPM back on his saddle horn. Longwei flies from behind the bat and bites into it head like a ripe melon and Malik grabs the soldier locking a carabineer onto the man down tab on his vest. They fly to the ground and he see the soldier has a neck wound and he takes off his shemagh and makes a tourniquet with it. “Medic! Medic! We have a neck wound here and I trying to stop the bleeding!” he calls out over the radio. The combat medic fleur de lis comes running over under cover fire. She starts working on him and tells Malik she needs an evac right now. “All right the Albatross is still a minute out so, put him on Longwei and go meet it. Take this in case he turns” he said handing her his 226. “I will not let it come to that but I know what to do”, she says taking the gun and putting the wound man on Longwei .He takes his FNP-45 Tactical, a last ammo can and GPM off of Longwei and runs to join the rest of his men. In the pit with his men he lets loose with the rest of them and he see if the gun ship don’t get here soon there going to be over run or the laser will fire and kill them soon. He drops more bats and he runs out of ammo and goes to his side arm. The song Frontlines by Nonpoint playing over the radio and he see Lilija get attack by 3 bats and fall off her broom into a snowdrift. He jumps out of the pit shoot off the bats on her and carries her back to the pit. “Gunships were you at? The lasers is going to fire in 7 minutes, were low on ammo, there too many bats to count and Lilija and her unicorns are running into trouble. Also whoever is playing that music over the radios, Cut that out! We do not need a soundtrack.” He said over the radio. Engine sound and then the sound of heavy weapons give him an answer. “This is the Overlord sorry we took so long, we had to pick of the rookies and we had some engine trouble. The C-21 is picking up the snipers and will be joining use soon and the Albatross is landing now.” The pilot said. “Alright rookies pull out to the albatross then the 77 Heavy-Troop Carrier land and pick up the human half of bad and the overlord you land last. When the C-21 gets here unicorns you pull out on it. Cover as you pull out.” Malik said picking up Lilija GPM and covering the rookies. The rail guns and 30mm cannons of the drop ships lay waste to the bats and he yells at the rookie to move faster. “Everyone is onboard and do you want us to stay to lay down fire?” the albatross pilot asks. “When you’re loaded leave the area as fast as you can. Do not wait around!” He yells over the radio. A bat lands in front of him and Lilija cuts it in half with a sword. The albatross leaves and the C-21 fly overhead to lay down more fire as the 77 Heavy-Troop Carrier lands. The human half of bad company and Lilija runs to the dropship and it takes off firing anti-personnel rockets. “Fire some smoke rounds into the bat cloud and the rest of bad pull out. The unicorns and I will cover you.”, Malik said firing some smoke rounds. Soon a thick cloud of smoke covers the battle field and Longwei lands next to Malik and the Overlord lands. “Colonel, the overlord had an overload in the reactor and the computer is telling us we can’t carry both you and Longwei. If we did the reactor would have shut down because we would be too heavy. Maybe the C-21 can do it?” the overlord pilot said. “No, the C-21 is small VTOL and is not powerful enough. I want you to guys you to leave and get away and I will give you 2 minutes of cover fire before I take off on Longwei. Now get the hell out of here before the laser hits, that’s an order!” he yells and picks up a drop M1060 round. The ship takes off and he give them 2 minutes of cover with an enemy M240 and then fires his last M1060 round and get on Longwei to fly out of there. He sees the bats are after them but he tell Longwei to fly higher and push it. “Fly faster we have 3 minutes to get to safety.” Malik tells Longwei. They are still 6 miles from safety when the countdown hits zero and the attack alarm goes off in his helmet. Longwei land and tell him to lay face down on the ground and he will cover him with his body. In the dark under the dragon he feels the ground jump under him as the laser hits and he watches as a volcanic ash cloud comes at them in his HUD. The ground under starts to heat up and he can’t hear anything over the freight train sounds all around him and he passes out from the heat. He feels something licking his face and opens his eyes and Longwei is looking down at him. “About time you got up. You passed out from heatstroke from all that gear you have on.” Longwei said as Malik gets up looking around. The sky is a hazy pale yellow color with a mix of snow and ash falling so dense that it’s almost pitched black. A gaseous sulfur smell is in the air. “How are we alive and why were you licking me?” Malik ask Longwei looking him right in the eye. “I am a dragon . My kind is heat poof and has a very thick armor skin. I never told you this but most human weapons can’t harm me. I covered you with me body and protected you from the fall out. I licked you to try to wake you up and you are covered in bat parts and I love the taste. You’re not human my friend, just check your HUD and see how hot it got under me. No human would have survived that.” Longwei said in a matter of fact way. He checks his HUD and the temp. Had got up to 220 and in shock he nod to Longwei and thank him. He checks his gear and cuts loose the melt saddle from Longwei back and picks up his scar and look at the melted polymer. “You know this is the nineteenth time I almost died and not since the battle of the round table was I scary like today. You know Longwei you’re the only real friend I really have and I am really happy we met”, he said taking apart the weapon.” I feel the same way to buddy. I am glad at the round table when I was on your tail of your F-4E that I did not take you down.” Longwei said give him weird dragon smile. “That was you? How you know you know it was me?” Malik ask surprised. “I fled pass your cockpit and come on! You were flying an all-black jet with white Tiger Stripes, it stands out.” Longwei said. Malik laughs at that and then plays with his HUD computer and gets a date link from the space control-monitoring ship Kosmonaut Yuri Gagarin off shore. “This is Lieutenant colonel Malik of the 1st joint Special operations brigade. Target is destroy and is just a large Crater. Did anyone of the attack group make and where are you now?” he said over the radio. The EMP is making communication hard and he hears nothing beside the wind. “Allâhu Akbar your alive Lieutenant colonel, everyone was worry about you. I am the pilot of the C-21 and we all made it out before the laser hit. We have some wounded but everyone is going to be ok. We’re about 10 miles from base and will be landing soon, do you need pick up?” The pilot asks. “No, Longwei and I will fly back but my IFF is down. You all did a good job and I did not want to tell you all this before. There will be a party back the base and all forces have 2 weeks of down time coming before we make the big push north. I will see you back at base.” Malik said and signs off. He jumps on Longwei covered in ash, wet from dragon Saliva and sticky with bat blood and remains and they head home. On the way back he hears the US President giving a speech over the radio. “The joined human and other forces from around the world have launched the largest attack in the history of mankind. Mankind, which word should have new meaning for all of us today. I met a young captain a few years ago that was the first person to have a changeling organ transplant. He had made friends of a dragon, his most hated enemy, even though there kind killed many of his friends. We can't be consumed by our petty differences any more. We are united in our common interest. We are fighting for not for freedom from tyranny, oppression, or persecution, but from annihilation. We're fighting for our right to live, to exist; and I am getting reports even now that our attacks were successful on different fronts. We were force into a war we did not start or wanted but we have been fighting it for long then we have known. We've been fighting this war for a long time. We are outnumbered by Millennium and they are working around the clock, without quit to kill us all. There is a storm on the horizon in the north, a time of hardship and pain. This battle has been won, but the war against the Millennium races on. There global network in the north remains strong, but we will not quit, until all of it is destroyed. Humans have a strength that cannot be measured and we will win. Today we declared in one voice, 'We will not go quietly into the night! We will not vanish without a fight! We're going to live on, we're going to survive!"
  4. So, which tank is the best that was ever built? You can choose any tank from any era you like, from the Leonardo da Vinci's wooden prototype to the new M1A3 MBT. The tanks must be real ones that have been build or at least designed on paper. This means no fictional or video game tanks.
  5. Hey all, so this year's Call of Duty got leaked last night, then the trailer officially released this morning. Here it is. So, what do you guys think? I personally think that it looks like it is going to be a fresh Call of Duty for once, and it looks pretty epic with the technology element. I mean, this is more technologically advanced than Black Ops 2. If you didn't know, CoD: Advanced Warfare is being made by Sledgehammer Games. Here is a video Drif0r made that showcases their past. As a CoD fan, all I can say is "please save us, Based Sledgehammer." The official world reveal of the game is this Sunday, May 4th at Noon CST. Let me know what you guys think, do you like it? Do you hate it? Confirmed List so far Kevin Spacey is lead antagonist/protagonist Combat takes place in the USA Revolves around PMCs (Private Military Companies) Set in the far future
  6. Ch.1 As the moon shines over Equestria's coast Twilight,Spike,Fluttershy,Rainbow Dash,Rarity,Pinkie Pie and Applejack walk alongside the beach awaiting a message from Celestia. "Do you think maybe Princess Celestia forgot to send the message?" Fluttershy asks. "Don't be ridiculous the princess wouldn't forget". Meanwhile at Canterlot Celestia is looking through her daily planner frustrated. "Whats wrong sister?" Luna asks. "I'm forgetting something that I didn't write down when I know I should of." Celestia said then proceeds to throw the planner into the fireplace. "Well that was an over-reaction" Luna calmly replied. "Don't tell me whats over-reacting and whats not" Celestia snaps back. "Well at least I didn't forget what I was supposed to do tonight." Luna replied still calm "And what was THAT may I ask?!" Celestia retorted "To raise the moon" Luna replied with a glazed look in the eye. Back at the shore. Spike burps out the burnt planner. "Told you Fluttershy" Twilight said. "Now lets see.....Find a new island in Equestria......Wow she really did need all of us". "I don't think she meant to send that...." Fluttershy replied. "Don't question Celestia of course she meant to sent it to us." Twilight remarked "There is the boat we supposed to use" Twilight points to a White and Golden ship with the sun on the sides "I don't think that is for...." Fluttershy tries to tell the rest of the group but they had all ran to the ship "...us" Fluttershy then Fallows onto the ship.
  7. Okay, so for the past few days on here, I've been topics like what will you do if all ponies were transported to Equestria or if you met the Mane 6 and who will win in a battle of FiM vs human being and other stuff related to that and being attracted to ponies, so here I'm gonna make a topic explaining all of this. This is a big thing I have always been iffy about and had many theories on how it will play out. This is kind of a dream I've kind of been wanting to write about sooner or later, so I'm gonna ask you guys and hope I get a good amount of replies. Everyone seems to find lot's of good and positive views on the show and enjoy watching it. They even see it as a perfect place with lot's of adventure and happiness all around where everyone is always kind and nice to each other. So I'm just gonna hurry and get to the point, from looking at and reading all the post from about ponies being in real life, being attracted to ponies and ponies being able have some violent actions and if all the Bronies in the world been transported to Equestria. If Celestia and Luna wanted to spread their civilization across the other worlds and then saw that some human being was flawed, evil, hateful creatures, and they decided to go to war against the humans, who you think would win? Would the FiM ponies be able to convince many Bronies to join them and fight with them? FiM Ponies Advantages : Unicorns and Alicorns: Magic, Dark Magic, Light Magic, Elemental Magic. The Unicorns and Alicorns possession of magic may be their biggest since their are so many possible with magic and in many stories, folklore and myth, magic have been one of the most powerful concepts and things to have as an advantage over your foe. Pegasui : Weather manipulation, speed, agility, weapons (since they descend from a proud warrior society), fighting tactics and maybe knowledge in combat. The Pegasui can probably maje it ran acid rain and kill all the trees and plant have the humans get weak and sick as well as make lighting strike on them and cause major storoms. Earth Ponies: Earth ponies have very good strength (Appejack's applebucking and big Mac pulling a house) They have good stamina and can do much hard work and have a better physical level and what not. All Ponies: The ponies can have magical weapons and medieval weapons like, canons, spears, swords, bombs, and other such. Clans and Faction: Now everything we come to love about MLP:FiM, what if the New Lunar Republic and the Solar Empire are actually real and they joined forces against the humans to win. They both have powerful factions and would hold up in a war. The royal sisters: Not to mention Celestia and Luna. They both have control over the sun and moon and if Celestia takes away the sun, game over and if Luna takes away the moon or move it, it could possibly caused tsunamis and tidal waves on cities, humanity will have no choice, but to surrender. Humans advantages: Weapons Guns Haters... Tanks Technology Advancement Nuke Bombs (which they probably would not use since they didn't use any nuke bombs on the zombies in World War Z) Now, the only question that is left is this, Which side will you choose? Who you will pledge loyalty to and hopes of a new future. A new better world that Celestia and Luna can bring about or the human world were everything is already flawed and corrupt. I know what side I'll be on
  8. ( This is a Antro fanfic which means there will be guns and violence and One human and One pony together through this fanfic ~ Shadowbrony) Sergeant Firebolt and Ghost trotted down the ruin streets of Ponyville. '' Be careful Ghost. There might be infected ponies here,'' said Firebolt. He heard a building crumble behind him. Suddenly a infected pony jumped on Ghost. '' Get this thing off me please.'' Firebolt fired a bullet into the pony in the head. Suddenly, more zombies jumped out of hiding and surrounded the survivors. '' Come on Ghost. Lets fight our way out of here,'' Firebolt said as he was firing off rounds from his shotgun. They just kept coming , but they wouldn't give up. After countless fighting they finally escaped the zombie horde and found cover in the Golden brooks library. They got inside and barracked the door. '' Who's there. Come out and face your death like a infested freak like you,'' said a lavender alicorn trotting down the stairs. Firebolt pointed his weapon at the alicorn and saw who it was. '' Oh its you. Firebolt and Ghost. Welcome and did you find any supplies,'' she asked. '' No we didn't Twilight. The zombies surrounded us and made us take cover here,'' Ghost said. '' Okay.''
  9. I just recently began watching MLP, and (while I am still very dubious about clippers) I have come to really enjoy the fandom. I have recently started writing a screenplay for a hypothetical MLP movie. Come and check it out at the following link: https://docs.google....dit?usp=sharing I am posting this via google drive because I am constantly making updates, and so that you can see my latest updates at your convenience. This screenplay is about peace, despite the name. I have actively avoided blood and gore, so that it is more acceptable to younger audiences, while still discussing the horrors of war and the strength of friendship. I am interested in any help I can get, either in the script, concept art, or music. I also utilized several works of fan art as concept images, embedded in the text. If you recognize any as your own, please let me know so that I can appropriately cite you. I am also hoping to get some help from Silly Filly Studios and other animators to try to make this movie a reality. If you have some ideas for the music, all help is appreciated. Please keep any comments limited to constructive criticisms only. If you think I should make a change, post it in the comments either on this thread or on the google drive. I hope you enjoy. -2nd LT Jeremy Truesdell (If you want to see the pevious comments, here is the link:) http://mlpforums.com...y/#entry1989464

  11. A lonely, alicorn trotted down the empty streets of Ponyville. The alicorn;s name was Firebolt. He had a bright red mane and a snow white coat. His cutie mark was flaming lighting bolt. He was looking for some supplies for sergeant Candy and her men. Firebolt was the captain of the team for right now. The town is a major disaster zone because Discord ,Chrysalis ,and her changeling army took over Canterloat and Equestria. He quickly took cover behind Sugarcube corner bakery. Two changeling Kill squads spotted Firebolt before he completely hide behind of the bakery. The sergeant gave the signal to attack. '' Oh shit. Not the buggers,'' said Firebolt. He casted ''Flame sword,'' and stabbed one changeling in the throat. He with out any hesutatsones, he did the same to the others. Suddenly the sergeant send a distress signal to the other kill squads. '' No. more. Fine by me, more for me to kill,'' he said. Did you guys like the frist part of my fanfic? if you didn't I understand so by
  12. Those that know me will probably be wondering why this essay has taken so long to show up. Mainly this is due to prioritization, enough other people have discussed this topic that I didn’t feel it was that urgent. However, the discussion has reached a point where I am disagreeing just enough with the various conclusions reached that I’ve decided to put this one together. First, what do we know? There are several references to weaponry in FiM and some of them have interesting features. The Canterlot guards regularly have spears. Spears are pretty universal weapons known in every culture around the world. Not much to be learned here, other than they are depicted very clearly as hewing spears with broad heads rather than throwing spears (and are too large to be javelins) with narrow piercing heads. Bow & Arrow cutie marks show up on several crystal ponies, plus one colt in Cherilee’s class named by the fandom ‘Archer’. Archer’s cutie mark is sufficiently stylized that it could be a cupid reference instead of a weapon. However, the crystal ponies’ cutie marks are standard bows and we can assume from that that actual archery is familiar to the ponies. Archery is an odd thing for the ponies, given that it very definitely requires fingers to work normally. There are ways around that, however. Also during the Crystal Empire episodes, Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy have a little go at tilting, sometimes known as jousting. Lances as used in tilting are specialized spears, developed during the transition of jousting between war training and sport. In this case, the lances appear to be mounted right on the armor rather than held in any way. This is… odd, but when jousting became a sport in real life, similar odd things occurred to the equipment. The idea of a knight being winched into place in full armor is from very late-period 'jousting as a sport'. It wouldn't be unheard of during this time (17th century) that a knight would get up onto their horse unarmored, and have his armor assembled around him after-the fact. In the most extreme cases some German knights would be unable to move except for one arm operating the reins, and the armor would be loaded with springs and clockwork so it would make a more spectacular *SMASH* when the collision happened. Pipsqueak’s ‘pirate sword’. This is a classic cartoon sword, and very obviously a toy. Interestingly, it’s not what is popularly thought of as a pirate sword at all (a cutlass), but what they usually use as a toy knightly sword in most animations. For some reason, they’re always drawn as a leaf-blade, a sort of two-edged machete being very tip-heavy. This is a style of blade in real life that really only occurs when a culture is transitioning from bronze weapons to steel weapons. As a note, wrought iron weapons rarely work as iron is less effective for blades than bronze, providing no advantage. It’s only when steel gets involved do bronze weapons become obsolete. It’s during this transition period that leaf-blade weapons show up. The weapon is used by Pipsqueak as a mouth-tool. Rainbow Dash’s reference to wanting a pet ‘as fast as a bullet’. Many have taken this to mean that ponies are aware of firearms, which may in fact be true. However, this is not necessarily a reference to guns. Bullets have existed long before guns were invented. Romans were using bullets, and comparing things to their speed, as that’s what the ammunition of slings is called in Roman Latin. Now, I’m not talking about slingshots, but the proper slings that were considered weapons of war and of hunting since pre-history. David and Goliath stuff. Slings are difficult to use, and take a *lot* more practice than pretty much any other weapon out there. In ancient armies, the slingers were usually trained from early childhood. Pinkie Pie’s party cannon is real reason why ponies are likely aware of firearms. Guns were first invented in China near the end of the 12th century as a development of fire lances, tubes mounted on spears that spewed fire and shrapnel. This technology spread *fast* in medieval times, handguns hitting the Middle East in the early 13th century, and entering Europe in about the late 13th century. Think about that, the concept of crop rotation, knowledge of medicine, and the printing press could take 500 years or more to get from one end of the Eurasian continent to the other, but working firearms and the industry necessary to support them took less than a 100 years to spread over that entire area. Full-sized cannons showed up later in the middle of the 14th century. This is a bit that people usually forget; handguns predate cannons. Mainly because it took a while to figure out how to produce gunpowder in quantities necessary to be able to operate large artillery pieces. Pinkie Pie’s cannon is missing a couple of the indicators of an actual weapon. There are always several reinforcing rings on the barrel of a cannon, to reduce the chance of the case or breech from… exploding to be honest, usually at the muzzle (known as a swell), and where the cannon is mounted on the carriage (known as rimbases), as well as the entire cascable is drawn rather simplified. Of course, being a cartoon drawing of cannon, these details are lost. So, as far as I can tell, that’s it for weaponry in the series itself. There are several fan-concepts that are fascinating, like ‘wingblades’ that are specialized weapons used by pegasi, but I’ll come back to that later. Overall, there isn’t much weaponry in Equestria. Despite the fact that there are enough monsters and nasty critters that would justify such. Early depictions of pegasi peg them as militaristic, which carries on into the Wonderbolts training regime. And several ponies are depicted as wearing various states of armor, but those tend to be remnants of ‘a thousand years ago’, indicating that the ponies have not needed any form of warfare in living memory. Ah, that’s a good point. Weapons aren’t everything in the Armory, there’s armor as well of course. So what have we seen for armor? Next week!
  13. So I think you remember this character... And yeah, kinda played too much Call Of Duty, so I made a wallpaper of it And I'm glad of how I did it Here is a link - http://fav.me/d5x5yd5
  14. This mostly revolves around shooters but does anyone else see the patterns beginning to develop in the chosen settings of ANY shooters these days? Remember our first decades as gamers, when EVERYTHING was WW2 and you couldnt find a modern shooter to save your life? And Sci-fi's worth a damn were few and far inbetween... Then WW2 disappeared overnight. Played out, it had been done thousands of times and the masses were sick of it. Has anyone else noticed their doing the exact same thing with modern settings now? After WW2 it became true modern, but that wasnt exciting enough. So then it was modern +5 years. And we haven't moved since from that rut. Every 3 months it seems ANOTHER huge shooter set in a modern + a few years setting is announced or released. Personally I am already tired of shooting someone with AK/M4 series weapons. And soon enough some big company is going to release Call of Battlefield 18: Modern Warfighter and its not going to sell as well as the previous generation. The masses will get sick of it and the big games will all find a new decade to lambaste to death in their games. I know im not the only one noticing this. Opinions?
  15. I recently got an idea into my head that I absolutely had to write down, and I'm wanting both feedback and help with working on the idea so I could turn it into something great. Here's the summary for the story, which is currently titled "The Drums of War" 1000 years ago, the native human tribes of Equestria and Kara-den Kum united together and joined Nightmare Moon’s alliance to reclaim the lands they had lost to wars with Equestria. After the war, Celestia forcibly divided their confederation, forced the humans in Equestria to resettle, and sent their force back home in disgrace, leading to centuries of civil war and chaos in the land of Kara-den Kum. Now, a charismatic and powerful lord known as Berker Yunus has once again united the many kingdoms and cities of Kara-den Kum, and he has decided that the best way to cement his rule and unite this new empire is by showing the Equestrians that Kara-den Kum has not forgotten their past defeats. The idea in my head for this human civilization is to make them a psuedo-Turkish civilization, with some stuff I or other people come up with to make them unique. I'm wanting to model how they are in the prologue (which takes place after the final battle between Celestia's forces and allies and those of Nightmare Moon is ended by Celestia's use of the EoH) after the Turkish tribes of Central Asia and those of anatolia. I then wanted to base the human empire Yunus forges 1000 years later on that of the Ottomans at their height. One thing I've figured out already is humans and magic. Unlike most of the other races, magic in humans is a rare, rare gift, and those that are born with it are considered near-divine, and are generally quickly conscripted into the Sihirbaz Toplum (Mage Society) which is separate from the various human kingdoms/tribes/ or the empire. There, they either are trained in the ways of combat and become powerful arcane mercenaries which the Toplum leases out to those who can afford them, or they are trained in the realm of what they call "Divine magic" (eg, healing magics) and effectively become priests that work for the entire realm, for a small fee to the Toplum of course. Anywho, any thoughts, suggestions, or any sort of feedback or help are much appreciated. I will make sure that If I ever actually get to writing this, I will give credit to ALL who helped out, even if it was only a bit
  16. Didn't see a thread for these games so thought i'd make one. (UPDATED: Went back and added a lot more information about Chivalry: Medieval Warfare as it is now released). Age of Chivalry: I was wondering if anypony here plays / has played Age of Chivalry. If you don't know what it is here's a description (i'm not very good at these but will try my best. Also i haven't played in awhile but will refresh myself later and make changes where needed): Age of Chivalry is a free mod for source games (Left 4 Dead, Half-Life 2, etc). It doesn't modify any particular game though, but you need to have a source game to run it. It's a first person online medieval combat game, with several different classes and weapons. Gameplay: When you start out, you select a team and a class. Once that's out of the way, you start the match. There's a defending team and an attacking team, and the attacks much breach the defenders and capture something, kill someone, or something of that sort. On some maps there are useable siege weapons to assist you. When first starting out the game is generally hard and you'll probably die a lot, as there are a few things you need to take note of. The game uses a stamina system, which your sword attacks (if i remember right) deplete. The more stamina you have the more damage you do (if i remember right. It has been awhile). I don't think that holding up your shield (if you're a class that has one) drains your stamina, but getting hit does. If you're being an archer, you must also account for arrow drop and (once again, if i remember right) you do not have any help aiming. Being an archer was my favorite class though as they're really powerful (but hard to use) and getting a kill is EXTREMELY satisfying. I remember shooting sideways at people trying to get across a rope bridge over a canyon and knocking them off or killing them, and shooting down contested hallways. It's a blast Classes: There are a couple different class you can be. There are archers (one with a longbow and one with a crossbow), normal ground troops with a variety of weapons, and knights (with a variety of weapons ranging from battle axes to maces). I think that covers the basics of it. Anyway if you haven't tried it i would highly recommend giving it a go if you have a source game as it's free. Here's a link to it on steam (there's also a link on the steam page of Source games): http://store.steampo...1_7_suggest__13 Chivalry: Medieval Warfare: Chivalry: Medieval Warfare is a stand-alone game being made by the same people, but on the Unreal Engine 3. If i understand it right, it's basically Age of Chivalry, but way way more awesome. Link to their website: http://www.chivalrythegame.com/blog/ ********************************************************************************************************** Chivalry: Medieval Warfare: Chivalry: Medieval Warfare has been released! Having now played both, I definitely prefer Medieval Warfare to the mod (which is to be expected I suppose). The combat is much more fluid, works better, and there are more combat options. The graphics have taken a large leap forwards from the mod, and are pleasing to look at. There are different unlockable weapons for each of the classes (Knight, Vangaurd, Man-At-Arms, and Archer) by gathering kills with the previous weapons. The game is also much more polished than the mod. I think one of the most notable difference between the two would be the stamina system. Medieval Warfare still has it, but you are less dependent on it. Tis a nice change I think. Here's a class breakdown: Archer: The archer, is well, an archer. Uses bows, crossbows, and javelins as main weapons, with swords and daggers as secondary weapons. There are various arrow types that are better in different situations. Imo this class takes the most skill to play due to having to shoot and account for arrow drop, and not just get right up in front of people. Does +50% backstab damage. Weakest armor in the game, but the damage output is crazy. One well placed shot and your target goes down. Man-At-Arms: Can dodge, and uses swords and small shields. Least armored melee class, but if done right is very deadly. Knight: This would be your 'tank'. Has the most armor and can take the most hits, and uses less stamina to block attacks. Isn't very agile and has slow weapons, but very high damage. Getting smashed on the head by a massive hammer isn't fun. Can also use giant shields. Vangaurd: I find this class very annoying. They use polearms, and thus are able to poke you at large distances with high damage. They also can charge if they sprint long enough and leap at you. My personal favorite class is currently Man-At-Arms. I like the speed/shield without being clunky like a Knight. Chivalry: Medieval Warfare does a lovely job of transmitting the feeling that your attacks actually have weight to them, and the sound effects are quite nice. Fist fights feel amazing, if you want to goof off. The game also is skill based. Blocks and attacks are all directional, meaning you can't just hold your shield up and expect to not get hit in the front. This is true to some extent, but correctly angled attacks can get past. Shields will block projectiles, be they on your back or on your arm. It's possible to shield bash and kick to shortly break defenses and try to get a hit in if your opponent is blocking. There are attack combos, and you can stab, slash, or do a overhead swing. Stab has the most reach, slash is the fastest, and overhead does the most damage. Chivalry: Medieval Warfare has two sides (Agatha and the Mason Order). I usually play as Agatha as I like their armor/color scheme more. The game is almost completely online, there is no campaign. The maps are set up in a series of attack/defend objectives generally, though there is a CTF and Deathmatch map. There is a tutorial. It is currently $25 on steam. List of bug fixes for ease of access: Here are some screenshots from the website: I think that's about it. Anyone else play or interested in it?
