Basic idea for how I can think of things going forward is that Spectra and Operata will go Troy, where possibly they get involved with things there and get immunity for whatever they've done - eventually Equestria finds out and they can't do anything about it - since they are at war with an enemy nation.

And no worries.

I hadn't thought much on how things would go from Troy, just that it's set up to be the most unfriendly towards Equestria, in the general area, so it made the most sense. I tend to wing a lot of these things. :)

Do keep in mind that whilst the governing body is at war with Equestria, some would still look at someone like Magloria, and think that maybe if she were hoofed over (in case her crimes becomes apparent), there could start a talk about a ceasefire perhaps. If not flat out peace talks. There's idealists everywhere after all. Also, they would not exactly trust a serial kidnapper and murderess, who wants for power above all. They'd be dumb to take a dangerous, duplicitous individual like that in.

So just chose your words with care when it is. :) Or jus use Operata. He's known for hunting nobles, and part of why Troy are at war with Equestria, is to end the monarchy. They don't much like the nobles as is.

You mean Spectra, but it would perhaps be something Spectra would seize upon. Give the Trojans various knowledge she has about things they can use to their advantage and allow them to see further victories, capturing Spectra or disarming her may very well be difficult (or suicidal), the only way I think such a thing could be possible would be to surround her in an anti-Magic field, rendering her magic inoperable. Though Spectra may just be blowing smoke - and not know where a good location would be to go. :PIPPIPHURRAY:

I dunno if you want to do something with Spoiled Rich? I could take the role of her lawyer if it were that you wanted to do more, than have her as a minor mention. You could go and establish the whole noble angle of Canterlot more or less, if you had the desire. :)

We could do more with Spoiled Rich, I think that would be interesting - though if we are to do that we can sort of have the whole arc of the "orbs" and individuals being released be something put off to the "side, it would get a little repetitive if we sit through the whole process for everyone. I would prefer to focus on Spoiled Rich of the ones that are released, and have the rest of the individuals released off-screen. Magloria would be with the rest of the individuals, doing her 'job' in helping the guard deal with them, so we can pivot away from her angle of things for a bit and explore the noble side of the Canterlot Folk for a bit for sure.

For the scenes with the treasure and stuff, I'll just be describing what your characters come across - there wouldn't be dialog from my end of that, since its just treasure and stuff. Though, I have some ideas of what they will find once they start going through it.

I don't mind the orbs being handled off screen, with then some of the releases popping up later, as mentions. Just to keep some background fun going and all that.

Spoiled Rich I'll get to when the next post then gets here. Which should have been yesterday, but the forums have been down for me for a few days now, and now I have another stretch of some days where I need to go off and do stuff IRL, so I won't be back before Wednesday proper...

If I get some time, maybe I can pop something in, but I can't promise anything. Sorry for the delays. :/

For me as well, the forums were down due to upgrades or something the staff were working on. Take your time and do not worry about updating the RP if you do not have time. Real life comes first. Spectra also has a method of going faster on a boat - it won't be something overpowered, just moving faster on the water using magic - so it will take them less time to get to Troy, perhaps. She'll seek to come in as a "traveler" who wants to "Help" Troy without making any mentions of who she actually is or what she has done, of course. Magloria will also probably have some "Rest" time in active RP, as there is not much else for her to do currently. Don't want to be doing too much at once with too many characters, but yes, Spectra and Spoiled Rich will be the "main focus" for now. Magloria will likely be in Canterlot under protection of the guard, helping them out, getting adjusted to things, etc.

I got something done, after folks had gone to sleep.

The zebra will keep up, even if he has to exhaust himself severely. He can't slack there either, though Operata will help him eith some empowering music. As he doesn't have a weapon anymore, it is not directed, so Magloria will feel it too.

In case she rushes off eithout him, they are likely to crash ashore, and you will have big problems. You can make that choice if you will, and we can take it from there. Just set up how it would be otherwise, as I felt somewhat inspired. I had the locals planned out as horrible creatures for a while, but you never went snooping, so letting it out here. xD

As for Magloria, you can just have her tell Ghelzar she is taking a break too, and he eill handle things. Or it is hoofwaved as them just handling things quietly for now, and we can return to them at a later date.

I know I did not start the treasure part, but it takes ages to write this stuff on the phone, and it's midnight as I am writing this. So that part will have to wait one more cycle. Hopefully the rest is enough. :)

This is the part where we can "Break off" from Magloria and the orbs, and then get into the treasure scene and stuff, then work with more out of Spoiled Rich. They moved along with the Zebra, as directed by him. :coco:

I threw in some information there for you to latch onto with Starswirl, you can feel free to add what you wanted - just gave you some of the outlines to work with. There isn't much else for me to interact with from this perspective, so giving some grounds for Starswirl's reactions, I thought would be interesting. Diaspora is Spectral Fade.

(Hey, new name!)

Sorry for the delays mate. Will be a bit more, but I am gonna get on this soon. Just a lot of things happening, and time just rushes off from me. In this case, needing to prep for the dentist. Fun Friday...

Anyway, post soon, and again, my apologies for the delays. :(

I completely understand. Take your time - real life takes priority over RP. I too will have a summer of dentist work coming up. Need wisdom teeth removed plus I need braces eventually. Yup, I got a new name!

@Blitz Boom

I wonder what your ideas are for the relatives of Spoiled and Filthy? Just to have a concise list of names and stuff. You have Absurdly Rich as Filthy's sister, and some other cousins you mentioned, but their names escape me at the moment. In either case, I assume that Spoiled is largely estranged from her family - and Filthy's, though Filthy likely maintains good relations with the exception of Absurdly Rich.

If you wanted, we could skip ahead a little bit - skip to the portion where Spectra and them will be able to go over the border. The dinner scene with the family, I don't really see what else I could write for it at the moment that we haven't already touched on. The scene with the party we have planned, that will be quite interesting.

Just checking in to see what you think of my idea. Since they are already across the border, I suppose we could skip ahead somewhat to where they are further along and to where Spoiled Rich and the family are meeting with the Silvers before the party? Could gloss over the next scenes in the next post. Just think that might be interesting.

@PerlsteinProps

I'm sorry. Last few weeks have messed with my head, and I totally forgot to reply here too. :(

I think Filthy has an overall connection to his family, with his sister being in the bad house at the moment, so to speak. I added some references to Spoiled's too, just for the whole *Some only care due to inheritage, some others genuinely care* sort of things. Nothing specific beyond an added friend, or cousin of hers. Might be both? I will have to go and reread to make sure.

I think we can easily skip over some things for now aye. Either moving towards the party, or the pre-party, where the Silver's would be invited over. That could be referenced only though, if you'd prefer moving things along faster to the party. I had nothing specific sorted for dinner, or before it regardless.

As for the border situation... Give a reply to the sergeant, and I can have them sent along to somewhere more important in the post after. Moving things along there too.

Don't worry about it.

Sounds good to me. I would like us to skip ahead to be right directly at the meeting with the Silvers. For the Silvers, I have the idea that Silver Spoon's father is named Silver Laurel and her mother is named Pitch Perfect. Make of those what you will - they'll only be minor characters for one scene here. I don't plan on having the meeting for them lasting too long before the party. Spoiled in my writing has definitely had some kind of wake up call due to her being gone, and she's sort of like, wanting to reach out a bit given the circumstances. She's still the same as always though.

As for Spectra and Operata's visit with the Trojans, it were unexpected that Operata would reveal his name but that's a neat little twist there. I expect the Trojans will be very interested in Spectra and what she has to offer, and I would like to have some various scenes involving them putting Spectra's stuff into use. Really, what Spectra has garnered over the past millennia or so in secret was just waiting for the right time and the right benefactor to strike. 

It would be interesting, if Spectra's goals and her aims become less "Take over the World for herself" and more "Support someone who will", that being the Trojans, roughly speaking. Spectra's main goals are the downfall of the Equestrian leadership and she's sort of evolved into that throughout the course of the RP as she's realized she will never actually rule the world herself.

I had written some time ago that Operata considered himself known enough by the monarchy-resilient Trojans for his name to carry some weight. This here's me taking advantage of that, as teased. :) It gives them an in.

But yeah, I'm not home atm, but will get on to things in a few days time.

Yeah, that makes total sense. It would be interesting to see Spectra bring out some Equestrian Guards she captured, only for them to end up being tormented and questioned by the Trojans. Spectra does have a lot of information the Trojans did not have, and I believe it will lead the Trojans to actual victory. I mean, just think of it, how many times in the show and in other RPs that were done, do the Elements and Equestrians win? Maybe this might be different, with a Twist of course. It suits Spectra's goals. Perhaps she may even join the Trojans on the battlefield once her weaponry and tactics are adapted by the Trojans.

Question actually: Her blade. The evil one. I am assuming it is elsewhere, like the armor, and she won't get hold of it until she wants it there, yes? Or is it simply wrapped up in it's cloth on her person?

Should be mentioned, Troy is mostly made by another, and I know a limited amount. So if something becomes contradictory, lemme know. I might get lost in things sometimes. :)

For the time being, enjoy your first real commanding officer to try and impress. Let's see if Spectra manages to do that well.

Post done now. And yeah, I only made up one country in the MLP setting as it were, but that one's too far from Equestria to matter in this context. I see the geography as being somewhat similar to the regular world, and Equestria is made primarily in the area of North America, far as I understand. The place I made up, were an equivalent of Denmark, called Harrowmark. If you want stuff with a lot of necromancy and dark magic, in a more old setting, it's the place to make use of. Though I doubt some place so far away, have much interest for Spectra right now. :)
