Autumn Bell limped down the road towards the inn, she knew other ponies would be waiting for her, but she figured they could wait. she adjusted the bag attached to her hip and continued forward, the sound of the pistons on her mechanic leg echoed through the clear crisp air. She walked into the inn and sat at a table, she scanned the building, nopony was thee yet... other than a minotaur that was behind the bar area. Autumn Bell pulled a map out of her hip bag and spread it on the table, she began looking for the best route to get to the mansion.

Asteron noticed a mare walk in and take out a map. He walked over, curious.

 

"Hello, miss. Is that map what I think it is? Are you here for the meeting about the expedition? I was wondering when everypony would start to show up."

 

(Just so you know, I won't be on for the next few hours, and possibly not for the rest of the night.)

(thats alright :) )

 

Autumn Bell looked up, the copper bell around her neck jingled as she moved.

"oh... hello... yes, this is the map to the mansion for the expedition. i had no idea that somepony was already going to be here... so, whats your name? I'm known as Autumn Bell, the mechanic." Autumn said getting out of her chair and taking a graceful bow.

Amber grunted as she pulled the lasso tight around the mooring post. "Bring her in boys!" she called out, although no one was there to hear her. "Damn flaky crew, abandoning me like this" she grumbled through clenched teeth as she cranked the heavy winch, slowly but steadily pulling her vessel towards the ground. Finally she took a rest, panting heavily. "Should be close enough" she muttered as she tossed a rope ladder over the side of the ship.

 

In a matter of seconds her hooves were once again planted upon solid ground. All she wanted now was a strong drink and a room to spend the night in before the rough departure she would undoubtedly face in the morning, flying an airship wasn't easy, but flying it alone was near impossible in anything larger than a hot-air balloon. Amber scanned the small town. Most the shops were empty, but a brightly lit inn and bar stood against the other dark shop windows. "Perfect" she said as she stuck her head into the tavern, it was surprisingly empty. "Excuse me, are you open?"

Autumn's ears twitched up as she heard the voice of another pony.

"and another member joins the ranks... this is fantastic." Autumn said, limping over to Amber.

"yes, the inn is open. and may I inquire, you must be a pilot. it is a pleasure to meet you." Autumn said with a smile.

she went to take another step and one of her pistons jammed in her leg, leaving her face first on the ground.

Autumn looked up at Amber slightly embarrassed.

"damn leg... it'll never be like the real thing..." she muttered under her breath.

a wrench flew out of her arm band and autumn skillfully caught it. she loosened the piston, oiled it, then tightened it back up again.

Autumn picked herself up, brushed herself off, then nodded at the pony in front of her.

"my deepest apologies, I am Autumn Bell. and what might your name be?" she asked.

Striker was walking to the Inn, he was excited for the adventure that was coming, he always did like action, on his back lay a relatively large metal rod with a few pieces attached to it, it would have been to heavy for any normal pony to carry anyway. Entering the Inn he already saw  the group making itself, walking over he looked at the pony who invited him a good friend Autumn Bell. "Why hello their Miss I do believe you have invited me to join you in another adventure? hopefully it will be as un as the last one we went on!" Striker said cheerfully!

"Um, my name is Amber. Nice to meet you, I guess" Amber said awkwardly. "How did you know I was a pilot, have we met? Did I sign one of those service wavers that binds you into being an indentured servant on a pirate ship, again." Amber looked around as another pony entered and began rattle on about some adventure. "Am I missing something here? I only came for a room and some dinner."

Autumn smiled at Striker when he walked in and gave him a friendly nod.

 

 

"Um, my name is Amber. Nice to meet you, I guess" Amber said awkwardly. "How did you know I was a pilot, have we met? Did I sign one of those service wavers that bind me into slavery, again." Amber looked around as another pony entered and began to speak to Autumn. "Am I missing something here?"

"oh no ma'am. we are going on an adventure... i take it you got my note? is that not why you're here? i called for a pilot..." she trailed off when she realized she didn't send the letter.

"well pardon me... i guess I never sen that note... and i'll assume you don't want to go on an adventure that ends with more gold than you have ever laid your eyes on..." she murmured, twitching her tail back and forth, hoping she had sparked interest in Amber for an adventure.

@,

Striker automatically understood where Autumn was going with this, "I mean you don't Need to drive us if you don't want, we can always find another ship captain who wants Piles and Piles of gold! im pretty sure finding one wont be too hard..." Striker said in a almost smug face, he was trying to keep himself from laughing, at the silliness of the conversation.

@@@jdor11,

Amber looked up at the mention of gold. "Now hold up a second there, I never said I was against a little detour from the usual trade route." She said as she scrutinized Autumn and Striker thoroughly. "What kind of adventure are we talking about here? I've got a business to run I'll have you know." 'Although it's not like I will be getting much work without a proper crew, and with all that gold I could patch up that leaky balloon twofold and still have plenty left over to send to papa back at home' Amber added silently as she weighed all the possibilities in her head. "Say, either of you ever crewed a ship before?"

Oh yeah the Antigone (lol), Why you don't have enough crew to fly your ship? if thats so how did you even get here without crashing?" Striker said a little confused, "Either your the luckiest pony on the plante or your a amazing captain..."

@@jdor11,

(An Antigone reference huh? I was waiting for something like this to happen XD)

"I'll just go with the latter" Amber said, not really wanting to go into detail about her shaky flight. "How about we discuss this over a few ciders, I haven't had something to drink since I that glass of water I had when I woke up this morning, I'm parched. You know buying me a drink may sway me into helping you, no pun intended" she said with a laugh.

@@jdor11, @,

Autumn looked a little bewildered.

"umm... i've never crewed an airship... but i can try." Autumn finished with determination in her voice.

"Now, if you two don't mind, come here and we'll take a look at this map." Autumn said, walking over to the map.

 

she turned to Amber.

"well... its a bit of a long story... but lets just say there is an abandoned mansion on a hill that contains more gold than you can imagine...  the problem is... it belonged to a mad-scientist... and his experiments are running rapid throughout the building..." Autumn said, barely whispering the last part.

@,

"Well don't worry about the monsters! if worse comes to worse i will take them on, as for the treasure getting to it might be a problem, it say's here on the map that the treasure is located at the very center of the mansion, and from the looks of this map this mansion is huge!

The only question is how do we get to the center?" Striker said looking at the map trying to find any way in at all.

Amber pointed to a small hatch on the roof of the mansion. "If that's what I think it is, we can easily land my ship on top of it and break in through the ceiling, unless of course this mad scientist left some of his 'experiments' guarding the outside as well. I don't feel safe flying that old rig into combat."

After the second pony entered, Asteron got the feeling he wouldn't be able to get a word in for a while, so he went back behind the bar and started pouring drinks. When he was finished he carried an armload of glasses over to the table and set them down in front of the ponies.

 

"Drinks on the house, everypony. I'd hardly be starting off on the right foot if I made you pay for them. My name is Asteron, but you can call me Star", he pointed to the starshaped birthmark on his chest.

"Thanks a lot Star, just what I needed" Amber said as she downed one of Asteron's hardest ciders, and then a second. "Anyway as I was saying; all we need to do is take out whatever defenses surround the estate, preferably from a distance, then we can simply climb directly into the center of the mansion where all the gold is kept, right? Simple in-and-out, easy as pie. If you lot manage to take out your fare share of any hindrances we come across then I may even be inclined to share some of my gold findings with you" Amber finished with a mischievous smirk.

Striker thanked Star for the drinks but did not take any, looking at amber Striker said "Now i wouldn't get to cocky if i were you. we are splitting the treasure evenly. As for this mission being easy as pie, i'm not to sure about that, i did a little research about this mad scientist pony, and the things he did.... some of those experiments are creepy as hell." Striker couldn't help give a little shiver at the thought. Then he looked at everypony, "Well i can't promise that we will find a way in but i am getting into that mansion if it's the last thing i do! Besides other then treasure, their is something i need to check and make sure of in there..."

Shade walks into the inn, she looks at herself in her pony forum... It takes energy to keep herself in her pony forum, but very little. But it was well worth the energy to keep herself from walking around looking like a changeling. She walks into the inn and looks around... Not the best inn she stayed at but it was ok... She walks towards the bar to order a drink.

@,

 

Asteron saw the pony walk in, and rushed to arrive at the bar before she did. He had to keep up a reputation for good service, after all.

 

"Good afternoon, miss. Are you here for the expedition, like the rest of us? If so, don't worry, drinks are on me. I own the place after all; it would hardly be a good start to our partnership if I made you pay for them. My name's Asteron, by the way... Or Star if you prefer" He pointed to the mark on his chest again.

"Um... Hi... Star... I'm shade" she said feeling a little shy. There was something about monitor that made her feel week.

* so he owns the place? Not impressive, not many things worth taking.* she thought.

 

"But yah... I'm here for... The thing... But il have a drink first... It was a long walk" she said looking around the inn.

@,

 

Asteron nodded. There was something just a little bit... off about her, but he couldn't put his finger on it.

 

"Shade... It's a nice name, it suits you, I think. Anyway, go ahead and sit down with the others and I'll pour you a drink. We just started getting into the details, so you haven't missed much, really."

"Thanks" she said as she made her way to where the other ponies are...

 

She didnt get close to them she just sat in the corner and listened, she didnt need to look at the map, she could just listen in on what was the plan. She didnt plan on making friends, she was in it for the money.

Striker saw shade enter the inn, and saw that Asteron had told the pony everything that was going on. Striker walked over to the two, "Well Asteron you really shouldn't tell everypony you see about the adventure, if their here for the adventure then we will know them...." Striker looked at this new pony, "Well since you already know about it i guess we will have to take you along now!" Striker said in a half worried half silly tone, "Well it's nice to meet you anyway! My names Striker, i guess you could say i am almost second in command on this adventure!" Striker put his hoof out for a hoof shake.

Assurance quietly strode over to the inn. It seemed...spooky. Her bunny pal was on her back with a helmet made out of cow hide [...Poor cow.], on the lookout for danger with her gear sword. Assurance paid so much cash for that it wasn't funny, but she didn't mind.

 

"Now, Uproar, are you feeling hungry?" Assurance gently asked, who responded with a shake of his head. Assurances armor, well, medic uniform was made out of silk that would protect her from most ranged attacks, but was very bad with close-ranged attacks like swords. Her medical kit was hanging off of an old leather belt.

 

As Assurance walked into the inn, and saw the comrades for the adventure, she mumbled something, while Uproar groaned and started to fiddle around with the other cow hide, working on his body armor. It wasn't quite finished, of course...

 

As Assurance started to hear the conversation  she mumbled something again. She gave up communicating and decided to sit down while Uproar finished his body armor.
