PostSubject: The Last Hunt (Adventure, possible other tags)   Thu Jun 04, 2015 12:07 pm

Dragon, the very word conjures up such a great fear that most strive to never utter it. Countless tales of death, destruction, and fire burn to brightly in the fearful minds of ponies to even be sown as bed time stories for their youths. Their attacks pillage the country side, leaving little more than desolation in their wake. And rumor spreads that these beasts might not just be the mindless monstrosities of destruction, that their attacks might part of something far more sinister at work. Who's to say? While there are plenty of tales of survivors from dragon attack, there are none of anypony venturing into the dragon lands, and walking back out again.

Enough of rumor and story though, let us look at what is before you all. Dragons attack, most run in fear, some stand up to fight back. That is where you come in, dragon hunter. You, and those around you have chosen to stand and fight back against the dragons. A newly formed company, one that like so many dragon hunter companies, likely feature a combination of the three tribes, something that is uncommon in this newly formed nation of Equestria, and as luck would have it, rumor has traveled fast of a small dragon apprehended by a small town. You all have arrived and stated your wish to take the beast to the diarchy to receive reward for the capture, possibly a greater one since this dragon is still alive in it's binds. Before you depart though, the village chief looks and asks for your names.

"Who are you all?" the elderly earth pony stallion states as he eyes the small group of ponies before him. Many of the town's residence have gathered around as well, though whether they came to see the hunters or the dragon itself is uncertain as they mostly hang back behind the older head of the town who's addressed the group of hunters. The town itself was but one of many such similar earth pony settlements, several single story buildings buildings, mostly wood and thatched roofs. Then more homes scattered a bit farther away as the need for farmland battled the relative safety provided by living closer together and in a crowd.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Alright, well here we go on another Zen escapade, and as usual let's see some good intro post that are nice and descriptive of your character.

One of these such hunters, cloaked entirely in black, aside from two near white wings, steps forward. The hunter wore nothing else but a white mask with red features. "I am Nuria." The voice was slightly muffled behind the mask, but was clearly feminine. She stands tall and proud, presenting herself as heroically as possible to the villagers.

A gray thestral stallion stood beside the cloaked hunter. His mane and tail were black and cut short. They were also a little bit messy. He had on armor that looked rather similar to the pegasi's armor. Only it was a dark purple color and had a crescent moon instead of a lightning bolt. His eyes were covered by a piece of cloth that had two holes in them, most likely for the pony to see through. Strapped on his side was a short sword, under his left wing. He bowed his head a little to the elderly earth pony. "I am Star Sentinel." He then straightened himself and looked around a little.

With the dragon hunters was a unicorn mare. Her coat was a snowy white, at stark contrast to her long, loose onyx mane. She wore a golden robe that looked more at place at an academy than anywhere else, but a subtle clinking betrayed a likelihood of her wearing armor of some sort beneath the out of place clothing. She carried herself with her chin held high, radiating an aura of superiority that only unicorns could truly pull off.

When her comrades introduced themselves, she did the same. “And I’m Sharp Note.”

The dragon watched from where he was, bound down to a cart in every way that made him completely unable to move. His eyes were running all over the place, inspecting every member of the crowd, before finally finding the dragon hunters just arriving in the back. He lightly snorted, not really being able to open his mouth to speak. "Oh, great, even bigger of a crowd.... though those clowns do look lightly different..." he thought as he observed the hunters.

The older earth pony nodded at each of the dragon hunter's introductions, not speaking until the last one had finished. "Well, we thank you for your services hunters. We hope for your safe travels to the sisters for your reward," the older pony said with a little bow before turning back and beginning to disperse the gathered townsponies who'd come out to watch the scene. The dragon itself was already loaded onto the carts for the dragon hunters to begin transporting, and they'd be ahead to do so given how far they had to travel to reach the new diarchy's throne.

The dragon itself was bound quite thoroughly. The wings were tied tightly to it's body, and there were restraints tying all the limbs together as well. The mouth was bound as well, an obvious precaution since most dragons did breath fire of at least some form.

The cloaked and masked mare nodded and approached the dragon first. "Not at all, sir." She said, observing the dragon. "We're simply doing our civic duty." She told a half truth. Yes, the reward for bringing in a live dragon would likely be high. And yes, it was a very big deal, but duty... How much duty did she really have to this place? She looks the dragon in the eyes through her mask, looking straight into its slotted orbs.

“Mhm. Civic duty.” Sharp repeated, nodding. Naturally, she too spent some time observing the dragon. During which, she idly wondered how many magic missiles it would take to penetrate its hide, and was slightly tempted to experiment right then and there. After All, dragons were a blight on Equinity, surely no one would mind if she returned the favor in the form of several missiles of the magical variety. In the end, Sharp decided against physically harming the dragon. It wouldn’t do to have it die before they were payed.

“Well then, my delightful comrades, shall we head off? The diarchy is quite a ways away.” she said to her two partners in dragon hunting.

"Aye." Star moved over to where the other two are. He looked between them for a moment before shaking his head. "Whatever you two are think, don't hurt the dragon. I'd rather have him alive right now so I can get payed." He said as he trotted over to the harness for the cart. He started to fiddle with it a little, putting it on. As he did that, his mind wandered back to the dragon they were suppose to bring to the two sisters. Should these dragons be chained up? It'd be the same like chaining a pony up and killing them. But...He glanced back at the dragon for a moment before shaking his head. Of course dragons deserve to die. They're destroying Equestria. He looked over at Sharp and nodded. "Aye. Let's get to it then." He said briefly before starting to walk.

The blue dragon in chains grunted as he watched the trio approach them, lightly attempting to shake against the chains, only to see that he couldn't get out using his physical force. When Nuria approached him first and looked him straight in the eyes, he released a low growl. He did not like one part of that masked mare. When the pony named Sharp approached him next, he stopped growling. It seems like this one didn't see much interest in him and apparently just wanted to get whatever job they had over with. The third one looked younger than both previous ones, and the dragon could almost feel the pity in the young stallion. When they started pulling, he attempted lightly struggling against his bounds again and after releasing a low muffled moan and snorting again.

And so the trio set off from the village, a long walk ahead of them and with the majority of the day before them. Those of the townsfolk that lingered until this departure, waved and bid them farewell and good luck in their travels. Even the birds seemed to be watching them go. Luckily, the capital, and the seat of the throne wasn't far away, merely a day and a half's worth of travel, but there'd be no town for the new company of dragon hunters, or their captive to rest in that night, for only open fields and forest stood between the village and the kingdom's capital.

Hours into the travel later, and the sun was finally beginning to set. The needs for camp and fire were steadily approaching, as well as the needs for dinner and rest. Despite the struggles of the dragon, the binds that held him stood strong and secure against the attempts, shifting only slightly, but not nearly enough for any proper maneuverability. And all the while, a fairly steady stream of birds followed the group, a curious sight considering most of the time, the avian population fled at the slightest hints of a dragon's presence.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Alright, so we're doing a little time skipage here, but feel free to post and have conversations with each other and do things leading up to the building of camp. There is forest around so getting the materials for a fire and such can be handled by you, I'll be updating again when everyone posts their character having gone to sleep.

Birds. It had been a long while since Nuria had eaten anything like that. Maybe she could catch one and eat it for dinner tonight? No, it wouldn't be worth the trouble. And her spear wasn't the best for hunting bird anyway. She would have to settle for whatever rations they had for the night.

"We should set up camp somewhere off the trail." She suggested. "It's hot under these rags... I'd like to get out of them soon."

“I wouldn’t dream of it, dear Star Sentinel.” Sharp tactfully lied.  She returned the townsfolk farewell with one of her own, before she too began trotting away after her two partners.

The walk away from the village proved to be dreadfully uneventful, with the only occurrence of note being a stream of birds forgoing their tendency to fly away from things that could eat them. A curious oddity, for sure, but not enough of a mystery to warrant any action from the robed unicorn.

“Sure, I’ve about had enough of moving around for today anyhow.” She said when the desire to make camp became expressed, and trotted over to an acceptable locale for camping, presumably followed by her companions. Sharp would reach out with telekinesis as they walked, grabbing some firewood as the group made their way towards whatever place would be their campsite for the night. She then tossed all of the wood she acquired into a pile. “Mmm… would either of you mind encircling the fuel with a few stones? You know, to keep the fire from spreading.” She asked her fellow dragon hunters. Of course, it seemed odd that she didn’t do it herself, considering how easily grabbing the fuel itself had been.

Bleh. Unicorns. Star thought to himself as he trotted away from the village. He didn't say anything at all to the two other ponies with him, but he did occasionally glace back at the dragon every once in a while. When the sun began seting, he paused for a moment to take off his helmet and undo the cloth that was covering his eyes. He then put the cloth in his helmet and put it back on.

He looked at the other two ponies with him and stopped when they said they wanted to set up camp. He sighed a little and nodded his head. "Very well." He pulled the cart off to the side of the trail and started to undo the harness while Sharp gathered wood. When it was off and he could move away from the cart, he'd look at Sharp for a moment before shaking his head. He swiftly flew off to gather rocks and bring them back for the fire. "Honestly. Couldn't you have gather the rocks along with the wood? It's far easier for you." He said as he sat down near the cart, crossing his forehooves over his chest. He looked over at the dragon momentarily before looking back at his fellow dragon hunters.

By the time they reached the place for camp, Aerv already slowed down his struggles. He only saw a chance in the youngest stallion. Every time he'd look back at the dragon, Aerv would lower his head and attempt making "puppy eyes" at him before attempting to open his mouth and groaning at the bound, hoping it would make the young stallion free his mouth so he could attempt communicating.

"Don't be lazy, Star." Nuria said, once she had followed Sharp had found a suitable area. She kicked a sizable stone over to the pile of fuel as she dropped her bags. The first thing to emerge from her black clothing was a surprisingly reptilian tail, a strip of copper fur running the length of it, happily swaying freely from side to side. Then, piece by piece, her black disguise dropped to the ground, revealing an off-white, scaly coat and copper hair, as well as sharp claws at the end of her appendages. She stretched her claws gladly, letting out a sigh of relief.

"I hate wearing those." She said behind her mask, which was the last thing to come off. Her face was just as scaly, but shaped as a pony's. Her eyes golden and small pieces of ornamentation lie in her mane. "We should start going to more civilized portions of Equestria. I tire of wearing disguises."

“We are masters of  unsaid words, but slaves of those we let slip out, Star Sentinel.” Sharp said in a diplomatic attempt to tell the thestral to mind his own business.  “At any rate, I thank you for your assistance.” she continued, casting a simple spell to spark a fire within the stone-encircled logs.  When Nuria revealed her draconic features to the party, Sharp’s reaction was to raise an eyebrow at the scally mare. “Well, that certainly explains the concealing attire... “ she thought.

“If the more civilized portions of Equestria required the services of those such as ourselves, we’d have bigger problems on our hooves than irritable disguises, Nuria. I mean, can you imagine? A dragon having a romp through Unicornia?” Sharp said with a light laugh.

"Yeah, yeah." Star waved both of them off as he started to take off his armor and lay it down beside him. He looked over at Sharp as she started a fire and quickly shook his head. He didn't like this unicorn one bit, but he had to admit that unicorns were excellent multitools. He laid down on his back and looked up into the sky. When Nuria took off her clothing, he just glanced over at her for a moment before going back to staring at the sky. "Curious."

He look that moment to look at the dragon once more and frowned. It seemed he wanted to talk...but he'd be a fool if he set the dragon's mouth free right now with the other two dragon hunters awake. He looked at the dragon apologetically and mouthed the word wait to him. He then turned his attention back to the sky. Or he was intending to do that when Sharp started talking about civilized portions of Equestria and Unicornia. He sat up and stared at the unicorn. "Did you just imply that Unicornia was the only civilized portion of Equestria?" He said, narrowing his eyes a little at the mare.

The dragon curiously looked at Nuria's true looks before listening to Sharp's words and lightly chuckling before looking back at Star, hoping that he has had at least some effect on the stallion. When he noticed that Star Sentinel frowned and attempted telling him something without using sound, but Aerv failed to read his lips. He put his head down and attempted yawning, only to be obstructed by the bind around his mouth. He attempted struggling once more before loudly groaning and trying to free his limbs from slightly oversized shackles, seeing as his limbs were smaller than the dragons it was designed to before relaxing, waiting to see what the dragonhunters will do. A few moments later, however, dragonhunters could hear the dragon's stomach growl from hunger.

Nuria stretched and enjoyed being free from the confines of her clothing. She flexed her claws and popped some of the joints. "You don't know how good it feels to be able to relax without some crazy, superstitious villagers screaming about the 'dragon pony hellspawn!'." She says.

And then her peace was disturbed by the dragon's stomach. She let out a groan and turned away from it. It would survive without food until they reached the sisters.

“Of course not, It’s simply a lot easier of an example to list that which you are most familiar with than listing every bit of civilization in Equestria. You needn’t think so lowly of me, Star Sentinel. It is both rude and uncalled for, I have been nothing if not helpful.” Sharp said, sitting down and crossing her hooves. “Regardless of your disposition towards me, I happen to know yours is a particularly... sensitive breed of pegasus, so I recommend you cover your ears. I intend to dismiss our avian companions, lest they defecate onto us whilst we sleep.” With that said, she would wait for her companions to follow up on her warning, sit down, do the same, and magic a rather loud, sudden noise at the birds in the hopes of scaring them away.

Star snorted at Sharp. "Sure. Whatever you say." He said with a roll of his eyes. He paused and sat up to look at Sharp. "Huh?" He frowned and did as he was told. He wondered what she was talking about and what the heck she was going to do. He then winced a bit when she magiced the loud noise. When she was done, he grumbles and lets his hooves fall to his side.

His ears perked up a little when he heard the dragon's stomach growl. He looked over Aerv for a moment and frowned. He sighed a little and stood up, walking over to the dragon. He opened his saddlebags and pulled out two rubies, holding them with his wing. He reached into the cart and undid the dragon's mouth bind. "Now don't breath fire or anything, okay?" He then used his wing and dropped the rubies into the cart near the dragon's mouth.

The dragon groaned at the loud sound before lying his head down again. He noticed that Star approached him with two rubies and when he unbound the dragon's mouth, Aerv sighed in relief and smiling at the stallion. "Thank you, kind pony." he said as Star dropped the rubies in front of him. "Though I'd hate to sound picky, especially in such... position that I'm in.." he tugged against his binds again, "but do you have any fruit?" he asked before slowly taking the rubies in his mouth, eating them and looking up again at Star. "Oh, where are my manners... My name is Aerv. Aerv Xereth. And yours is?" he asked and put on a shy smile.

Nuria chuckled at the ponies, letting such petty things as their race get between them. If only they both knew how equally inferior they were to the likes of kirin. She covered her ears before Sharp let loose a thunderous noise. That was a bit annoying. Especially because the birds were all gone now. Oh well, maybe next time. But... Hey, what was this?

Nuria walks up to the cage and bangs on it once. "And just what do you think you're doing, Star?" She questions.

“What an absolutely rotten way to treat a colleague.” Sharp thought after Star Sentinel further expressed his obvious dislike of her with passive-aggression. She chose not to let it bother her, if the Thestral wished to mistreat her, then so be it. She refused to stoop so low as to respond in kind. “Thank you for your understanding, Sta--- You just unmuzzled the Dragon.” Sharp started pleasantly, and finished with mild disbelief.

“That’s certainly new…” Sharp said after the dragon introduced itself. She stared at the talking reptile for a moment, before speaking. “Erm, forgive me, I’m at a slight loss for words. Sharp, My name is Sharp. Fascinating… You speak our language?"

“He seems way too at ease for his predicament… something is off here.” Sharp puzzled mentally behind her enthusiastic greeting.
