@@Nightmare Season,

 

Hey, for some reason your Mentions don't show up in my notification inbox (it works for other people), so I guess I can miss the update ocasionally. Other than that, what are your thoughts on the RP so far? Any idea where we could lead the story? I have one possible lead buried in my OC's backstory, but I fear it could become one-sided that way.

See if this works

 

@Raven Rawne

 

As far as RP is. I love it so far. Your idea in the OOC thread when I first found you about your berry juice makers turned up missing was a good idea. But I can swing with anything.

Yep, works like a charm.  Aa for the "berry juice" source going dry, sure, we can go this route.  All she has to do is see that her stash is emptying and try to replenish at a nearby store. I can implement it once she goes shopping.

Hmm... As much as I'd like it to be the former,  I just can't see how she could get lost when the Empire came back and survive hidden somewhere for so long.

Maybe you have an idea? I put the summary of her known fate in the spoiler.

 

 

During Sombra's rule she was working in the tunnels beneath the Palace as a miner, digging to release the Umbrums from their prison while Crystal had to use her talent to make stuff. That's how they got separated since both slave groups were housed separately. The missing tag on the list was given because nopony saw her die down there, or found her remains in the tunnels where she was being kept with the others.

@@Raven Rawne,

 

Well. Lets see. Possible that the cave system was also apart of the disappearance. So they came back at the same time. The loyal guards of king sombre realized that he was imprisoned in the ice. So they took the slaves in the cave to search for him and freed him.

 

After Sombre was defeated by Spike the Mighty. They fled the kigdom and took their slaves to force them to build in a remote area of the crystal mountains working on a way to bring Sombre back.


p.s. Might be a good way to tie in the missing brewer ponies. They encountered the loyalists and were enslaved. So no more booze for Crystal.

Corrupt members of the Royal Court? Actually, that's a good idea! The King would need enforcers, and who would be better than unicorn courtiers? I'm following EQE lore with this one: https://mlpforums.com/page/archive/blog/_/equestrian-lore/the-frozen-north/the-crystal-empire-r16

 

Some of the corrupt members of the court could survive and flee with a hoofful of slaves and Sombra's horn into the Frozen North, and take refuge in the brewery as pretty much the only good shelter in the area.

 

I can almost hear the "It's gonna work" song. This will be epic.

Since we're at the doorstep of our brewery, I figured I'd share an idea I had a few days back. So basically it can be like those underground cities in Turkey - an underground system, lit by glow-crystals and mined over the years from natural caves. Geothermal hot springs at the lowest level would provide warmth and liquid water, and maybe even they could grow their berries underground like in greenhouses?

@@Raven Rawne,

 

Sounds good. Though I feel it best if the Brewery was just a brewery in the side of a cliff. The bad guys are off further in a mountain that is like that and like a small fortress at the entrance with a secret entrance else where.

 

Would seem a bit silly that the brewery was built over a city with out realizing.

I guess I didn't explain myself very well. What I've meant is that the facility is old, and originally built in a cave with a hot spring. That way ponies could survive. Over the years, they changed this and that and now the brewery occupies a small underground system.

 

I guess it would things more interesting if the brewery wasn't the end of the line, so we can go with your idea. King's corrupt courtiers, being unicorns and all, could even magically adapt a natural cave by building walls out of the corrupt crystal.

Wow. I need to file a complaint on my OC's behalf - she's not a diehard alcoholic. She would loiter by the barrels and make sure there are no taps installed but once she made sure they're sealed, she would reluctantly let them be. This brandy is more of a nostalgia potion slash stress relief for her.

 Nah, don't be. It just seemed off to me and out of her character. Aside from that, it's all good.


@@Nightmare Season,

 

Oh and one more thing - while I can navigate the spaces in your narratives quite freely (meaning I can make my toon busy and adapt to the parts where you imply she did something without a problem), I was wondering if I make enough room for you. I had the impression that either you didn't have a plan for Nightmare those few posts back or I haven't provided any good anchors in my narrative to get him more involved. So give me a hint if anything goes not as you'd like, okay?

@@Raven Rawne,

 

He is usually the quiet one. Also this is your plot so I am leaving more for you to determine what happens. After yours end we might do something for him if you are up for it. In that case I feel we will be swapping text length. So far I had no issues.


@@Nightmare Season,

 

Try not to end your dream yet. Got an idea. ;)

@@Nightmare Season,

 

Hey, so I've been wondering whether, maybe, we could cook up some basic plan for the immediate future of our characters - a sort of skeletal script until they reach the settlement.

 

The reason why I ask is because for the most part I am just filling the spaces in the narrative you make, and it looks lazy on my part. In reality, most of the time it seems like you have a plan going on and when I take lead, it collapses. So correct me if I'm wrong on this one, cause it doesn't feel right to take the back seat - it was supposed to be a joint effort.

@@Raven Rawne,

 

Ha ha. To be honest. I thought I was taking the back seat. I was just winging it based off of what you were writing. The few times I threw in his past was to give a few fillers on him in case you wanted to travel with Nightmare after We free the ponies.

 

I did have planned to loose his deck of cards and his roots along the rout to the camp. That is what the cards were referring to. As far as the golden root that was given to Crystal. That was so she could meet with the pony that is his mother, that way she could give her more information on nightmares. Nightmare Season was a special case. Not all nightmares are born the same way. Other than that I had no plans really.

 

As far as the camp goes. Find a secret entrance. Free and arm the slaves. And help them to revolt is all I got at this moment. I pretty much just come up with stuff on the fly.

 

I do feel like a good  moment to give Crystal a slight nudge to have her slide down the ledge we are currently on.

 

What ideas do you have?
