Open Ancient Rome Rp


Recommended Posts

Fire Slayer watched Diamond Leave with a slight feeling of disappointment which he refused to show. He used a spell and evaporated the tea that was left before pushing everypony outside and closing the door behind him. "Alright, you may all go do your duties." He then walked back to the palace.

Demence looked up at the oracle in shock. "You would... allow that? But... I'm a zebra." He had somehow stumbled into what may have been the kindest group in all of Rome. "Thank you so much." He could never pay off his debt. He had to survive in the streets for so long, and now this pony was offering him a home.

"My temple is open to all who wish to seek refuge," Glory replied. "To me, it doesn't matter whether they be pony or zebra, all are welcome. I may ask you to do certain tasks pertaining to the temple's upkeep, but apart from that, I exact no payment."

 

The pegacorn indicated to Unholy and Demence that they should follow her. She wanted to get back to the temple as the place was getting too crowded for her liking.

(Diamonds office isnt in the palace. Is it?)

Fire Slayer walked up the stairs to the palace untill he noticed that Gladius was blocking entrance to a civillian. He went up to the two.

"Gladius would you mind telling me what is occuring here? Has this pony put himseld down as a civillian yet?"

(Diamonds office isnt in the palace. Is it?)

 

((Yes it is))

 

 

 

Diamond closed the book but didn't put it back on the shelf...she thought she had heard some commotion down the hall...maybe everypony had left her office. She popped her head just outside the palace library door and chuckled slightly as the Emperor rushed everyone out of her office. She still didn't really understand why everypony just flooded in but she didn't dwell on it. After a moment she thought she would give everypony a few minutes to gather themselves before leaving so she trotted back over to the desk in the library and sat down, then she opened the book to where she had left off.

Scar burst out laughing. "You know, when I first saw you...I expected you were just a messenger or something...but you really are quite the fearsome griffin. I'm impressed." He said, grinning at her and finishing his water. "So how long have you been fighting ?" He asked, feeling rather interested in this Griffin.

"Let me see... i started when i was six-teen... im twenty-six now.... so i've been fighting for approximately  ten years now. and i have the battle scars to prove it." Fire Runner mused.

 

Glory smiled at her new apprentice. "You can come with me whenever you wish," she said. "I will sort out a room for you. Bring any belongings you have, and don't worry any more about ponies being nasty. Nopony ever insults an Oracle or the apprentice of an Oracle; they never know when they might have need of my talent of prophecy."

Unholy nodded at the Oracle, but then started thinking...

All I have is this saddle bag... so I guess I'm ready to go... she thought.

"I can imagine. I remember a while ago somepony saying that he knew a spell to help make scar's fade...I felt like I wanted to punch his face in. Every scar hold's a story some more exciting than others but a story all the same. So why get rid of them." He said, stretching his wings and forelegs...again.

Vinyl had always wanted to visit the great city of Rome. When her homeland was conquered and she became a citizen, she saw it as the perfect opportunity to fulfil her dream. She packed her bags, threw on her best white robe and cowl, and headed for the city.

 

Upon arriving, Vinyl was taken aback by the size and grandeur of Rome. For a while, she wandered about the city, taking in the sights of the grand buildings and elegantly dressed ponies. She soon arrived at what seemed to be the palace. Her jaw dropped at the sheer magnificence of the structure. She saw several ponies – guards, civilians, and senators – walking about and wondered how she could possibly fit in here. All she had were the clothes she packed, a single blade for protection, and twenty gold coins. She could barely afford to buy a room for a night. She was a poor mare, lost in the city of the rich.

Icicle made his way to the recruitment center of rome, there he went to the pony at the front desk and asked straight forward, "I would like to join your army, can i?" The pony at the desk looked bored he slowly lifted his head from whatever he was reading then asked back,

"Are you a citizen or have any I.D.?"

"No..."

"Then you can't join."

The pony then looked back at his paper with little interest in Icicle. Icicle had, had it, being thrown out of the palace and not being allowed to join the military, how was he supposed to get a job? at this point drips of water were coming down his face and body, when they hit the ground they would then instantly freeze, noticing this Icicle tried to cool down. Right so i can't get a job in the military, i have to find a job somewhere though!" Icicle then started to wander not really sure what he was supposed to do

@,

 

Gladius bowed deeply as soon as the emperor entered his view, flattered that His Majesty would even remember his name.

 

"Your Majesty, that stallion tried to casually walk into the palace, armed to the teeth no less, without any identification. His sole justification for doing this is that he wanted to talk to you about working for you as a mercenary. I told him you didn't have time to speak with every sellsword who wandered by, and after a failed attempt to bribe me, he left in anger."

Fire Slayer Looked off at the city. "Hmm. Very well. Continue your duties as normal." He said, trotting back down the stairs to Icicle. The first thing he did was disarm him of every wepon he owned. "Excuse me, but what is so important that the emporer himself needs to see?" Edited by darklord60

@,

Icicle was surprised to see the emperor suddenly talk to him just after being not allowed to see him, Icicle was also a little annoyed that he had to disarm himself but he did not say anything. "My dear emperor! My name is Icicle, a honest mercenary looking for work and i thought that i would make a good body guard for you!" Icicle bowed low, "To prove my worth i have brought with me these!" Icicle looked into his bag and brought out a few golden medals, one was for a strongest pony challenge, another was for barvest, but the last one was for crossing the largest dessert by himself, Icicle was very proud of that one. "Im sure that these are enough to prove my worth to you!"

Fire Slayer levitated the three medals in front of him. "If I may..." and began to observe them. "Hmmm. The craftsmanship is not similar to our medals so you are not a citazen, and since theese are not made in this city then they have no value other than financial. Apart from the third one..." He looked at the last one. To trek that desert is a challenging feat, and almost impossible to those unprepared. "Unfortunatley we are in a situation. Rumors spreading around and such. And while theese do show that you have potential they would only make a fraction of evidence as they may not even be yours. But. If you obtain I.D as a citazen and then prove yourself in a gladiatorial battle, then perhaps you could be a guard." he handed everything over to him.

@,

"Where may i attain I.D.?" Icicle asked, Obviously the military recruitment building was not the place, seeing how Icicle needed I.D. there too.

Icicle then asked a little bit more surprising question, "If i may ask, what happens to be your name?" Icicle asked curiously. There was a look about this pony that reminded Icicle of something but he couldn't figure out what.

Fire Slayer pointed at the building. "You go there to obtain your I.D. Though you will have to fill a few questions to be allowed entry. And guessing my name is one of them." He turned around and began to walk. "You are dismissed pony." he walked back to the palace.

Icicle maid his way over to the building that the emperor pointed to, their he made his way inside to see a counter with a pony sitting behind it, walking over to the pony Icicle said " Hi i am here to gain I.D. and citizenship." The pony at the counter pointed to some papers on a wall, going over Icicle grabbed all the paper's he needed and started filling out the questions.

Fire Slayer went back to thd palace and went into his private study. There he could do what was needed in peace. He sat down and leaned over a map of Rome. He took a look over each area, business and road for anything that could help him locate or find a changeling.

Ashwing was still in the palace sneaking past everything until he found the emperors study room and knocked ¨may i come in your majesty¨ he said with a royal tounge (ask DM) he waited for the emperor to reply so he sharpend his 7 blades a little 'hope it works' he thought as he nearly forgot his mission or that he was a changeling on a mission.

Fire Slayer was murmering to himself as he lay a piece of paper atop the map and began to draw circles in predicted spots to see if he could find a suitable area untill he heard a knock. He rolled up the paper and put it away.

"State your name and business or I'll have the guards escort you."

Icicle after a painstakingly long time finally got his I.D. and citizenship for Rome, as happy as Icicle was now he finally needed to get a job walking back to the Palace he went up to the annoying guard, "I think you can let me through now..." Icicle said showing the guard his I.D. "besides I need to talk with a gladiator master, who i will probably meet in there!" Icicle was happy he could gloat a little infront of the guard.

(OOC: For those of you still in Diamonds study, Fire Slayer told everyone to leave...so if you haven't done that...LEAVE DIAMONDS STUDY.)

 

 

Diamond closed the book again and placed it back on the shelf. "Everypony better be out of my study." She muttered, walking down the hallway.

Glory led Unholy and Demence thru the crowds towards the temple. She loved it; the building was made of pure white marble and had an effigy of the goddess at the very front. A fire was kept burning inside, in front of the alter. Glory's duties included keeping the fire burning with her magic, making offerings to the goddess and taking in all those who were in need. She saw a mare who seemed to be a stranger in the city; the mare was a grey unicorn with a brightly coloured mane and tail and looked lost and despairing. Glory guessed that this mare had recently arrived and had noplace to stay.

 

"Hello, stranger," Glory said to the strange unicorn. "You're new here, I think. Do you have anywhere to stay? If not, then I offer you refuge at my temple. In return, all I ask of you is to perform a few tasks to keep the place tidy and clean." Glory stood still, waiting for the stranger to answer.

Vinyl pulled back her cowl and turned to see the lavender pegacorn. "Uh, h-hi. My name's Vinyl. And yes, I'm new here. Do I really stand out that much? Or do I just look lost?" She took a deep breath and released quickly, then smiled nervously. Oh gods, what am I doing here? I don't belong in a place like this.

(I know bout the letter know)

Fire Slayer Paused upon hearing about the letter. Stuff like that should be talked about in private. "Come in." He said, readjusting his silken chair so he did not get aches. He opened the door and closed it behind him when he entered.

Glory smiled kindly. "My name is Glory, and I am the Oracle of this city. My talent is prophecy, so don't be nervous; my instincts told me that I ought to approach you and offer you sanctuary. Many visitors to the city are overawed by its grandeur; perhaps you would prefer the homeliness of the temple instead."
