Okay, that was too close. Metal thought to himself, after having to throw himself to the ground to avoid being seen by Broadshield. But, the rumors are true! That's why the black market is on the other side of town...because they wanted it to be as far away from Equinox HQ as possible. Metal continued to snake his way behind the group, ducking behind cover every time someone looked around.

Foxtrot and Nivalia scan the docks as they approach, the smell of the sea air surrounding them in nostalgia. "Wow, the docks. Surprisingly been to only a few in my time. Alright Broadshield, lead the way and we'll let you do the talking."

Seeing everyone ready, Broadshield makes his way down a flight of stairs onto the actual docks. Broadshield navigates through the docks, which have turned into a maze with all the shipping containers. Occasionally, the group would pass by one or two workers, who would either not notice them, or they wouldn't care. After some navigating, the group would eventually come out into an opening. In the opening, there is a tunnel that goes through the side of the wall, all dark. Inside it, a flow of water is also present, making its way out to the ocean. There were also a group of ponies, who at first glance look like a bunch of thugs, all of whom were playing card games. Upon the group showing up, the group notices them. One of them makes their way towards the group. "Oi, you lot! What're you doing here?" he calls out to them.

Metal watched from behind a container at the scene unfolding before him. I wonder...are these guys Equinox agents, or... Metal thought back to his last visit to Manehattan, where he had been bashed by a group similar to this one, just because of the 'reputation' shifters had acquired over the years.

Tinder looks at the thugs, sizing them up to try to figure out if she would be able to take them down or not. Though she knows that these ponies are probably part of the same group Broad is a part of, she still can't help but wonder if maybe she knew them when she was young, this being so close to where she grew up. She stares at them as she tries to see if she recognizes them, but doesn't speak a word, knowing that she should keep her mouth shut.

Nivalia looks around the area, her and Foxtrot's expression neutral towards the ponies addressing them. This wasn't the first situation they've been in and certainly wouldn't be the last. Both simply remain calm and wait for Boradshield to speak.

Looking at the gang in front of them through his hood, "My group just wants to go through the tunnels, that's all." He says to the leader of the gang. 'Oh Saur you paranoid...' He mutters under his breath, barely audible.
"I don't know if ya'll can tell, but this place ain't exactly open to the public. Boss' orders." the pony replies.
"Who told you to guard this place?" Broad asks.
"Why does it matter to you? You lookin' for him?" He asks, getting aggregated.
"What if I am? What will you do about it." He responds, growing tired of having to do this.
"Are you lookin' for a fight? I'll fight you!" He calls out, challenging Broad.
"Fine, I'll make this quick." He says to both groups. At that moment, the gang leader pulls out a knife and charges Broadshield. Stepping to the side, he quickly disarms the pony and throws the knife off to the side, while also pushing the pony off. Going into the offensive, he throws a punch at Broadshield, to which he grabs the arm, and proceeds to throw him to the ground. When all is said and done, he removes his hood, revealing himself to the gang. At that moment, all the gang ponies except the leader salute him and the group, the latter too dazed to realize who he just fought. After getting up and saluting Broadshield, he begins to speak. "I'm sorry Commander, I didn't realise it was you. If I did know I would have let you in.
"That's alright soldier, did Saur put this group out on guard?" He asks.
"Yes sir, since there have been a bunch of ponies around the area, Saur wanted to put a guard outside to scare ponies off." He responds
"Alright, thank you soldier. Just so you know, I have a feeling that somepony has been following us. Keep a look out, and make sure nopony gets through."
"Yessir!" He says as the group salutes him. Making his was back to the group he says, "Alright, let's head in and follow me. Watch your step as it can get dark in there."

Ocean shifted back as the group entered the complex. "Well ****. Armed guards." Ocean muttered under his breath. "This isn't worth the risk. I'll hang out here for now, wait until they exit, then follow from there. That is, if they even use his exit." Ocean flew up onto a nearby shipping container, and settled in to stake out the doorway, looking for any signs of movement from the guards.
Don't get washed away.

Tinder watches Broadshield fight, a smirk appearing on her face. She's honestly impressed with his fighting skills, and seeing him fight like this gives her a little bit of respect for him, she respects a pony more when they can hold their own in a fight. Tinder gives one final look around, securing her bag around her, and then follows after Broad into the tunnel.

The unicorn and changeling stand back and let the scene play out. It's conclusion was expected, and knowing that they're in the right place provides comfort for the two as they follow Broadshield into the tunnel.

Leading the group through the dark tunnels, the group eventually comes across a large door. At the door are two guards, who silently salute the group. "Alright guys, through this door is the Equinox Manehatten Division Base. From here follow me into the meeting room, we'll formulate a plan there, but feel free to look around for a little bit when we go inside." he says to the group. Opening the door reveals a large warehouse like area, shipping containers stacked up to their level, or being stacked by shipping cranes (They're looking down at the warehouse). On the far side is a very large sliding door, capable of moving dozens of containers in or out at once. Alongside that, series of rooms are built into the walls, housing further storage, food and water supplies, armories meeting rooms and more. Throughout the place, Equinox soldiers are moving around, moving containers, constructing and repairing various things, as well as going off on missions as well as returning.

Tinder looks at the sights around her in awe, there is so much stuff in here. Though her temptation to go swipe a few things is quite high right now, she decides that the risk is much to high with all these guard types around. Plus, Broad promised her a clean slate if she did her best, and she feels like that offer would be taken off the table if she tried to steal from his group. She just sticks close to the group, avoiding eye contact with any of the Equinox members around her.

Nivalia looks around with amazement, it being a rare occurrence of seeing logistical operations in this scale. She taps her brothers shoulder to turn his attention to something interesting. "Wow Fox, it's been ages since we've seen that."

The unicorn smiles, "It has. I gotta say this is a great setup; I appreciate the support for all this Broadshield."

"No problem you guys. We're always willing to help, especially when we know what the stakes are." He says to Foxtrot. "Just follow me downstairs. We'll make our way into the meeting room, then we'll formulate a plan against the group." he says, leading the group downstairs. After making his way downstairs, he leads the group to a meeting room. On the way, any Equinox guards that aren't doing anything really important come up and salute Broadshield and the group, occasionally welcoming the group to the base. Upon reaching the room, he opens the door for the rest of the group. Inside is a large room, which contains a large table made of crystal, capable of using light and memory spells to create holographic projections. Surrounding the table are various chairs, roughly 12 in total. On the wall is a map of Manehatten, with various notes next to circled locations, reading different notes, such as criminal hot spots, patrol routes, suspicious activity, and in the center of the map is a large park that is circled, with a note next to it saying 'Suspected black market location'. "Just get comfortable, I'll try and find some soldiers willing to help out on this op. I'll be right back. Pastel, Monochrome? Where are you?" he calls out as he leaves the room.

Tinder completely avoids eye contact with any of the guards that come to greet them, just giving quick nods in their direction while staring at the floor. Once they get into the room she seems to relax a little bit, glad to have a break from the mass amounts of guards. She looks at everything in the room, but her attention is quickly drawn to the map of Manehatten. She stares at it as she finds two spots on the map, the first one being her old home and the alley the used to live in, an area known for it's criminal activity. The other thing she looks for on the map is where the old playground near her home would be, sniffling a little as she finds where it would be on the map. She rubs at her eyes as she stares at the map, quickly grabbing her pill bottle from her bag and taking a couple. She then walks to the other side of the room and sits on the floor, trying her best to ignore the memories that are popping up in her mind.
