Canterlot / Re: The Airship Dock (Open to all!)

Midnight makes her way up onto the open air deck. Upon getting up, she gets a full view of Canterlot, and the wide expanse of Equestria, from Ponyville to the Crystal Mountains. Turning back she calls out "Vex, when will we be heading off?"

"Alright, if its alright with you, I'm going to be going above deck. Don't worry, I won't go anywhere else. I just need a bit of fresh air." she says as she waits for a response. Meanwhile, Hex looks around the ship, looking at the trinkets, seeing if she recognises any.

"Oh ha ha." Midnight says sarcastically as she boards the airship. "I will say this is quite a fancy airship, but jeez, that aroma is really strong. I can't even think straight, my sinuses are exploding. Does this airship happen to have an open deck?" Midnight says as she explores the ship, looking at all of the trinkets.

((So sorry for not being online! I've been pretty busy lately))

Arriving at the airship dock, Hex takes in the sights of the airships and the vast land of Equestria. "A very impressive ship indeed. I was on a commercial airship not too long ago, I wonder how this is going to go." she says. "You say we're going east over the mountain to Manehatten? Ok, but be careful. I heard stories of how there is supposedly a large winged creature that lives on the other side of the mountain, a red beast, waiting in its cave, filled with treasures for any unsuspecting travelers. Its a tall tale, I know, but with everything that has happened in the past, I wouldn't be surprised if the tales were true."

"Alright then Vex, lead the way." she says. Before leaving, she glances back at the packages left by Vex. "You mentioned your mother, were those packages for her?" she asks

"Look, I know that you have your concerns about this, but Nivalia and myself really need to get to Manehattan for our own reasons. I'm seeing some people there that if I talk to them, they could hopefully get you in and out if needed. If that doesn't work you could simply land us near Manehattan and we can just go the rest of the way on hoof. Besides, we'll never know if we don't try" she says.

"I don't know. When I asked the ponies at the train station what was happening there, it was all somewhat cryptic. They were saying something about a skyscraper, regional emergency, then they said something about armed forces. I don't think they meant anything like the Royal Guard, I have a feeling it was the work of several mysterious armed forces. But why they are involved in some kind of emergency in Manehatten, taking place in a skyscraper, which I am quite sure there are dozens of in Manehatten, is quite frankly beyond me." she says. Although she doesn't say, she has a pretty good idea of the identity of at least one of the parties in this emergency, her future employers, that's why she needs to get to Manehatten. "Nivalia, was it? Who was it that you needed to see in Manehatten?" she asks. 'Maybe she knows something.' she says to herself.

"Good to hear." she says to the batpony. Before she says anything, she studies the two ponies. One of them has a snake around her neck. 'I've never seen a pony with a snake before.' she thinks to herself. The other one, the batpony, there is definitely something different about her, aside from her being a batpony. Her accent is unmistakably that of a local Canterlot resident, but the way she carries herself, and her confidence makes her feel as though she's not a local. No matter, she'll have time to dwell on it later. "I'm trying to get to Manehatten as soon as possible, but horse-drawn carriage as well as trains to and from Manehatten are closed, apparently due to some kind of emergency that's going on there. Something about a skyscaper..." she says, mumbling the last part, trying to think why all of this is happening. "Anyways, like I said, I'm asking if you could possibly take me there in your airship. If its needed, I can pay you for transportation costs, fuel, the likes." she says, levitating out a reasonably sized brown pouch from her saddlebags, filled with enough bits to cover whatever costs needed. "My name is Hex, its a pleasure to meet you." she says.

Midnight trots through the streets of Canterlot, with her hood up, her saddlebags at her side, holding various necessities that she needs, food, water, tons of bits from various jobs, and of course, her most valuable item, her large book, "Arcane's Archive". She really didn't have time to be in Canterlot though, she's lived here for a good portion of her life, until she left. What was important was finding a way to Manehatten. She'd already tried going by train, but the ponies there said all standard transport in and out of Manehatten was shut off for at least a few days, because of some kind of emergency going on, they said. None of it made sense to her, as all she understood was that there was an emergency going on, something about armed forces or something like that. A few days was something she didn't have. She could try magic, but even for her, a trip like that would be too far, and she may not make it, and even if she did, her magic would be drained for a week at least. Recently she was talking to some ponies offering pretty good jobs, as well as a place with them, but she needed to see whoever was in charge as soon as possible. Right now she was desperate to get to Manehatten, so she asked around to see if there was any way to get there within the next few days. No such luck so far.

Eventually, she overheard two ponies talk about airships, which got her attention. 'Airships? Why didn't I think of that? I can probably pay off a pilot to get me to Manehatten.' she thought to herself as she continued to listen to their conversation. "I could fly you back to your shop when we're finished here, if you like!" she heard one of them say. Making up her mind, she approached the two ponies. "Hello, I heard that you fly airships?" she said to both of them, not sure which of the two were the airship pilot.

Characters / Midnight Hex
« on: February 04, 2016, 06:26:25 am »
Name: Midnight Hex
Gender: Female
Race: Unicorn
Age: Young Adult
Coat: Navy Blue
Mane: Dark Gray and Light Gray highlights.
Eye: Black
Cute Mark: Open Spellbook with runes on the pages.
Hobbies: Learning magic, exploring the world
Abilities/Skills: Very adept in all kinds of arcanic magic
Current Residence: No permanent residence,
Occupation: Magi, Freelance Operator (For now at least)
Personality: Formal, straightforward, very focused on the job at hand, admittedly a bit cold and stubborn towards others.
Background Information: No records of Midnight are found before she was enrolled into Celestia's School for Gifted Unicorns, where she graded as the highest ranking student in her year. Many students in her year compare her to Twilight Sparkle, from their similar looks to their proficiency in magic, although this is not the case as she has never met Twilight Sparkle in her life, nor was she in the same class as her, she is a few years older. After graduating, records show that she went around the world to study more ancient magic, whether it were magical artifacts that she studied or bought, or even eye witness accounts of her coming to them to learn more. Recently, records have shown her taking up various jobs suitable for a mercenary, whether it be to gather information, track someone down, or even take them down, she'll do most jobs, for the right price.
Equipment Loadout: She wears a large, dark gray robe with a hood, which is used to conceal her identity when taking up jobs. Her robe/hood is magically enchanted so that it can withstand many physical and magical attacks before showing signs of damage to the robe, or to herself.

She also carries around a large enchanted book, filled with runes and spells that many don't know about. Within the pages of the book, is magic, laced in the words, dialects, runes and spells of thousands of magical languages, from hundreds of magical cultures and lands. Midnight only needs to silently chant the words, and she is able to perform any spell, spells that are much more complicated and than even the most advanced spells taught to unicorns.

A downside to the book however, is how taxing it can be to wield it for extended periods of time, despite Midnight's magical ability. From her own words, the book, known as 'Arcane's Archive', is "A very powerful, magical artifact. It channel's my magic into performing any spell, from any culture or land. As such, many of the spells are very complicated, powerful spells, that despite my magical ability, I can only use it so many times until I can't even perform even the simplest of levitation spells. Oh yeah, the book is really heavy, so I also have to constantly be holding it with levitation, as well as using spells from it. In short, it uses a lot of my magic."

Regardless, Midnight's greatest weapon, is her magic. Even without her book, she can perform many advanced spells with ease, to turn any confrontation she encounters to her favour.

((More may be added in the future))
