As Joyride and Emerald talk, the colt hears some sounds from the hole in the ceiling that leads to the bedrooms.

It's Ruby, and she's climbing down.

"Hey, I didn't miss breakfast did I?" Ruby says as she gets to the table.

"Nah, pull up a bowl of cereal, use the bathroom, and pray your soul doesn't get stolen by some demons." Joyride says.

What does Emerald do?

Emerald thanks Joyride for her stirring speech, and they all finish breakfast. Emerald goes to check on Pip. The demon is still sleeping, and picking her up doesn't seem to have wakened her.

Emerald comes back down to see Ruby asking Joyride a question.

"So why doe people even want to become succubus followers? I mean, why wouldn't you just become the follower of something cooler like... I dunno, like Pip's one." She says frowning, "the fire one?"

"Some people find getting power that way better I suppose." Joyride says with a shrug, "Plus Succubi aren't too picky, like the other kinds of demons."

Joyride sees the colt come down the stairs and asks, "Hey, we all ready to head out?"

Emerald asks what happened after he passed out.

"Joyride carried you up to the bed." Ruby says sighing, "And you were still asleep when I went to bed, which was a while afterwards."

Emerald notes to spend some time with Ruby and then apologizes for overexerting himself, and then asks what it means to be come a demon's follower.

"They grant you a portion of their power for something from you. Most of the time it's a soul, but sometimes if the demon is desperate and the summoner is powerful, a task." Joyride says shrugging, "

Emerald asks how to lure a succubus out.

"You don't. Most of them have layers of protection before themselves. They are never on the front lines, even though they can hold their own. They'll know we are there before we can get far."

Emerald then asks how Equestria's princess managed to get herself a cereal.

"You know. The Followers of the Sisters. Always trying to market them out. I hear they got the legal rights somehow." She says shrugging, "I bet it's pretty profitable. Anyway, seriously, you ready to get goin'?"

As Joyride packs up he asks about how to deal with thralls of the succubus. They will most likely run into at least one, if Stargazer is there.

"The thralls tend to be just as talky as the succubus themselves. Just blast'em before they have a chance to do anything. I'm sure you are aware, but they, like most demon followers, can transform and then your shrimpy magic may not do much." Joyride says.

They then walk silently and alert towards the town. He hasn't come from this direction before. On their right are the tents of the guards he saw in his dream. He's too far away to see many details but... Something seems off about the tents.

On the left is the collapsed town full of debris. He knows that's where the Order members saw an enemy, so that'd be a good place to start looking for the Succubus, he supposes.

Emerald wonders if he should perhaps wear that ring. After all, he thinks his step parent's ring is the only thing that kept Stargazer from taking control of him completely.

Emerald decides to try the ring back on again. For the moment though Joyride and Ruby seem to be discussing which way to go first.

Emerald's opinion is to go to the tents. Maybe they can find someone or some clues or something. The discussion wraps up pretty quickly afterwards, and they all head that direction.

As they creep over to the tents it becomes increasingly clear that something has happened here. Most of the tents have collapsed, and the ones still up are torn or otherwise on the verge of collapse. A lot of dust has been kicked around, and there are signs of a struggle. Much like the disaster before however, there don't seem to be any bodies.

On top of all this, there is a strange fluid covering a lot of the area, as in almost everything save for a narrow path they can walk on.

"Whew, what's that smell?" Ruby says, plugging her nose.

Joyride scoops a bit of the translucent white goo onto a hoof, and gives it a sniff and then licks her hoof. Smacking her lips frankly she says, "I know what it is. I bet you do too Emerald.

She waggles her eyebrows slightly.

"Hmm, but don't touch it. There is something mixed along with it."

Emerald asks why there is so much of the... Well, you know. What could it possible mean?

"For once, I have actually no idea. Hmm..." Joyride says, staring off into space in thought, "Hmm... I think I'm going to change into something more battle appropriate. You guys mind looking out for me in the meantime?"

The pair standby as Joyride pulls out her clothes from the time they were on the pirate ship. As they wait for her to change Emerald whispers to the mare, asking if he can use the ring he had before again, just in case.

"Oh, I see. Needed a reason to put it back on, eh?" She says chuckling, placing her wide brimmed hat on her head, "Yeah I still got it."

She produces it from her mantle and says, "You want me to set the safe word or do you want to? If you are being charmed you might blurt it out just to get some release."

What does Emerald do?

Emerald says that she should decide the safeword, and says that maybe she should help him put it on. He then attempts to match her eye waggle, but he's not nearly experienced at doing it as she is.

"I appreciate the thought, but let's not dawdle. Turn around." says Joyride rolling her eyes and snickering, and then whispers something into the ring.

Joyride helps him put the ring on, and then he asks her not to forgot the word, or he'll have to find some more mares to please.

"Oh, sure you don't want me to forget the word?" She says, showing off her impressive eye waggle technique again. She grins so widely that he can see it right over the top of her high-brimmed mantle.

Ruby appears from around the bushes where she was keeping watch and says, "So what's the deal with this...? Where is everyone? Didn't you say there were a ton of people here? Where's Hope?"

Emerald asks what her other encounters with succubi were like.

"Very fun sometimes, sometimes not so fun." Joyride says with a shrug, "They are very dramatic sometimes."

They search the tents better and find that the only things left were containers, bags, and some personal trinkets like wallets and photos. There are no weapons or supplies.

Emerald checks the wallets for bits, but nothing is there so he discards them. He checks the photos, but he doesn't recognize any of the people in them. He places them back where he found them afterwards.

He then thinks to cast the detect life spell he learned from Sensoria, but he only sees Ruby and Joyride. Pip's book is in Joyride's mantle, which is why he assume he can't see her. That's it however.

Emerald asks if they can check Hope's tent. Joyride says to lead the way, and Emerald traces the path back from his vision.

The tent is still there, and in a much more pristine condition from the tents at the guard area. The colt has a second where he thinks that maybe she's completely alright and just waiting in the tent for him. However, the tent is empty, even of possessions. It looks like it was abandoned without being taken down.

Emerald gets a little nervous, and calls out for Hope.

"Shh, quiet!" Joyride says looking around, "It doesn't look like she was captured to me. No white goo anywhere after all. She's probably hiding."

Emerald asks where she could be.

"If she's lucky she escaped. If not, who knows? Probably up on the hill somewhere."

Emerald is a bit thankful his premonitions are indeed true, and asks if she knows how long ago the attack happened.

"When I touched the semen before it was pretty cold, so at least a few hours." Joyride says, "But I don't know how long ago exactly. Probably longer, if your dreams are to be believed."

"Maybe she went up towards the mines?" Ruby says.

"Yeah, well... That's where I'm guessing the succubus is, so let's hope not." Joyride says with a nod.

Emerald asks what they are talking about.

"Trotton is a mining town." Joyride says with a shrug.

"Yeah, it's about the only thing Trotton is known for. I keep forgettin' you haven't spent much time in Whitherwater."

The trio begin to sneak their way up the hill covered in debris. The process is easy as there are broken boards, fallen roofs, and destroyed furniture and trees everywhere. Emerald whispers and asks what sort of mine it is, and how far.

"Iron, I think. And coal as well." She says, glancing around and darting to another hiding spot, "As for how far away I''m not sure. I don't come to Trotton a lot, and there is a landslide. Maybe about ten or fifteen minutes?"

Their climb is nerve wracking, but luckily uneventful. Emerald spies a railroad track going into the mountain. They hide a bit back from it just in case someone is watching the entrance, but there doesn't seem to be any one there.

They duck down slightly as they hear some shuffling down the hill slightly. At the same time, Emerald thinks he here's voices nearby. Looking around, he spies a small crack in the hillside. that it may have came from. Is that a cave?

I looked up minecarts and it said that the earliest known one was in the 16th century, so I was hoping it wouldn't look too off, but perhaps I was wrong.

Emerald casts his vision spell again and looks around. He can't see the mine area since he is too far away, as for the others though...

One group appears to be several larger ponies walking together in a clump. They are clearly looking for something.

The others do appear to be in a cave. It's only two ponies, and one seems smaller than the other, and might be a foal.

What does Emerald do?

Emerald tells Joyride what he sees, and asks if maybe the cave contains Hope and Larimar.

"Hmm... It's a possibility. Let's go check." Joyride says.

As they approach the cave Emerald checks again, and sees that the foal sized one is crouching beside the entrance to the cave. He then relays this to Joyride who says, "Alrighty, let me handle this."

She instructs them to stay near the entrance, and then strolls right in herself. The foal sized creature leaps at the unicorn, who throws up a barrier. The foal smacks against it in confusion. It's the foal from his vision!

"Heh, nice try, but-" She starts, but then Larimar stabs the barrier and it breaks.

The unicorn jumps back in shock, as does the foal, who clearly wasn't expecting that to happen.

"W-wait!" A says voice says from the back of the cave, "Stop! I know her!"

Hope dashes up from the back of the cave and steps between the foal and Joyride.

"Hey Hope. Who's this? Your new Emerald?" Joyride says, looking down at the foal, who stands back up. He still hasn't put the sword away.

Emerald dashes into the cave and nearly tackles Hope with his hug.

"Oh! Emerald, it's so good to see you..." She says, hugging him deeply, "But why are you guys here?"

Emerald comes away from the hug to see the foal staring at him forelegs crossed. At least he's not holding the sword in his hooves anymore.

"On top of that, how did you find us?" Larimar asks.

"One sec, we'll explain. Hey Ruby get in here. I'm going to cast a spell that muffles sound around the door." Joyride says approaching the two foals and Hope.

Ruby emerges from hiding, and trots into the door, after which Joyride's horn glows and the air around the cave systems ripple like an invisble fog was just touching it.

"First things first, who's the new shrimp?" Joyride says pointing to the new colt.

"My name is Larimar. You don't have to tell me who you are." Larimar says, his forelegs still not uncrossed, "Uictoria talks about you all the time."

"Heh, I bet she does." Joyride says grinning, "So you hang around with her huh? Here I am rescuing you and I bet you'll repeat everything I say back to that copycat."

Larimar thinks on it for a second and says, "Yes."

"Just can't trust goody-goodies can ya." Joyride says grinning. She pushes Ruby up to the new foal and says, "Your turn."

"Uh... Names Ruby. Nice moves back there." She says, scratching the back of her head.

"...Thanks." Larimar says, politely.

Emerald introduces himself afterwards.

"Okay. We all know each other? What about our questions?"

Emerald wonders what he should say. Would it be a good idea to reveal what the amulet does? Is there any other way they could explain it?

Emerald attempts to smooch the mare in front of him. And she grabs him with a chuckle and says, "Hey, stop! Anyway yes, I want to know what's going on too."

The colt, not wanting to talk about the amulet quite yet, quickly says that they tracked responses from Dragonfire lanterns, just like Uictoria did to them.

"Hmm... I see. And you just happened to come now? That seems like a pretty big coincidence." Larmar says.

Emerald says he'd like to know what happened in the camp first.

"We aren't entirely sure because we weren't in the area at the time. Eventually we heard yelling and Uictoria and the others went to check. Eventually some of the guards plus some ponies we didn't recognize." Larimar blushes a little at this point

Hope puts a hoof on his shoulder and she continues, "They have a weapon that is... Well... It's like a... A gun that shoots their seed. It's connected to their... You know."

"What?" Joyride says flatly. Emerald must admit that is his reaction as well.

"Yes it... Sprays it everywhere. It's a miracle we weren't hit. I don't know what happens, but if it hits someone, even their clothes, they become slaves." Hope says, starting to turn a little red herself.

"But how could they produce enough sperm to do that?" Joyride says, rubbing her chin in thought.

"Their... They are engorged..." She says, looking down, her face bright red.

Emerald asks if there is a way to make them immune to the effects of the jizzgun.

"I'm going to hope a barrier will do it, but I guess we'll find out." Joyride says, "I'd have to put some research into the fluid and spells to have a definite counter-measure."

The colt asks if the slaves were lead by anything.

"Not that we saw." Larimar says.

Emerald asks if they should escort them out.

"Hmm..." Joyride say thinking, "Hmm... No, I think I'd like to deal with this as soon as possible. They can stay here if they need too."

"Did someone say something about introductions?" Pip says fazing in from beside the new colt, "Hi, my name is-"

"Demon. Demon!" Larimar says, drawing his sword and stepping in front of Hope.

"Relax, she's cool." Joyride says sighing.

Pip floats closer and stares at the sword pointing back at her. "Oh, that's interesting!"

Emerald gets between the two and gives them both a boop. He wants to know how interesting she finds it, but the colt isn't sure he wants it discussed out to everyone quite yet.

"You must know, somewhere deep down, that you can't trust her. Not really." Larimar says, pointing at Emerald.

Emerald has to admit, she did set off the alarm in the guard bunker where they got the documents. Not that he says it outloud.

The colt says it's fine. Pip is compelled to listen to them and not harm them in anyway.

Emerald instead asks a more important question. First he thanks him for protecting Hope. She is very important to us, he then asks if Larimar's compatriots under the effects of the goo.

"I don't know. We haven't seen them yet, but that doesn't mean anything.." Larimar says, crossing his forelegs and looking away, "Don't count her out, I've been with them long enough to believe."

Emerald wants to ask about the amulet, but decides not to bring it up in front of Larimar. Not yet at least. Instead he insists that they should probably get a move on if they are going to do anything.

"Yes, I agree." Joyride says very business-like, "Who's staying and who's coming?"

Emerald says that he is of course going.

"Me too. You guys aren't leaving me behind this time." Ruby says.

"I need to look for Uictoria and the others." Larimar says with a determined look on his face.

"I couldn't possibly stay behind while all you try so hard. I don't know if I'll be of any use, but I will try." Hope says, standing up.

"What a group we make. Look more like a daycare than anything else." Joyride says sighing.

Emerald reminds them about the small group he saw outside.

"Yeah, they're are a few groups trying to find us. We've been hiding since around sundown yesterday." Larimar says.

The colt asks if they know where they are all coming from.

The two of them shake their heads, and Hope says, "We were more concerned with hiding away."

Emerald says that it'd be nice to trap the brainwashed somehow. If they are mind-controlled it doesn't seem right that they harm them.

"We may not have much of a choice." Larimar says back to the colt, "If we get hit even a little that may be the end of our free will."

"Maybe for you guys." Joyride says grinning, "But anyway, I wouldn't mind capturing them myself. Maybe we can drag them back here and ask them some questions."

"It'd be nice to not have to hurt them, yes..." Hope says, a bit worried.

"...But it's true what he says." Ruby says, pointing to Larimar, "If they get us with the goo wemay have to hurt them. Or worse, we may be forced to hurt each other by the mind control. Do you think you could free us from it, Joyride?"

"Dunno." Joyride says with a shrug, "I can knock you out though easily enough and I can heal you once I figure out a way to do it."

Emerald says that Joyride could pretend to be caught and then go scout around, or even find the leader and then take them out.

"Eh... I'm not so good at pretend. Unless it's sexy pretend time." Joyride says sighing, "How about we just try to ambush them? You have that smoke and your sight right just bait them a bit and I can take care of the rest."

"I don't know Joyride... I'd rather not put him in any danger..." Hope says, frowning.

"Hey now, don't deny his skills. I know for a fact that Emerald is a master baiter." Joyride says grinning.

Emerald asks if they had any other weapons besides the spray guns.

"That's the only one we saw. They didn't even seem to want to use any other kind of weapons." Larimar says, "Which is odd, because other than being mind controlled they are still soldier ponies. They could probably cut a mean chunk out of us with a sword or halberd."

Emerald asks if he has anything in his pack that could help them.

"Not really, no." He says, taking it off and opening it.

He appears to have several days of dried food, a canteen, some rope, some matches, a small utility knife, and his bedroll.

The colt asks if there are any other ways into the cave.

"Not sure..." Joyride says, "Usually they do, but I couldn't tell ya where."

Emerald says that the plan is good, and they embark, tracking the nearby slaves with Emerald's sight.

They sneak up on them, hiding behind a slightly collapsed wall. The group finds them wandering around the ruins of the city, looking around. It's three stallions, two of which are Jewel Family guards, while the third appears to just be wearing a vest. If Emerald had to guess, it's probably a villager. They all have the same dull look in their eyes.

In addition, all three have the weapons Hope and Larimar spoke of.

As they watch, Emerald asks Larimar if they talk.

"Yeah. Like I said they are just normal people." Larimar says, "Think we should lure them somewhere else?"

"There isn't great cover around here because of the landslide. I dunno if we should lead them to the cave either, in case we need to go back there. Not until we knock them out at least." Ruby says, rubbing her chin.

Emerald sees they aren't wearing gas masks of any kind, so a smokescreen will probably work pretty well. If he's going to be bait that'll help.

"We going to take them here or not?" Joyride says, getting a little antsy.

Emerald says he'll go out and distract them.

"Sounds good. We'll stay here. Find a place where they won't see us if they spot you." Joyride says.

"Good luck!" Hope whispers as he dashes away.

The ponies don't seem to be moving too quickly, so Emerald takes a wide path around them from behind, and coming back around to the other side from the rest of his group.

He takes shelter behind a crumbling wall, and spies at them through a window. He's within spotting distance of the civilian and one of the guards, but they haven't seen him yet.

Emerald removes his clothes just in case and pulls out his focus. The colt then preps some of his potions in case he needs to use them. He then picks up a rock and throws it into some upturned bushes and rubble to see what they do.

They look up at the noise, and the guard closest holds up a hoof to alert the others. He then points where Emerald threw the rock.

The soldier slowly approaches where he heard the sound. The civilian raises his gun and covers him, and the second guard looks all around, positioning himself behind a smashed box and looks around.

Emerald scrunches his face slightly. They seem a lot more organized then he initially thought. But then her remembers what Larimar said. They are just ponies. Nothing more and nothing less.

He decides to launch a smokescreen at the back two, and then runs out and alerts the third, since he's farther away.

"Contact!" The soldier yells.

Emerald is easily able to duck behind cover, and a sharp splat of a burst of fluid smacks the wall he is blocked by. Two more follow. He's sort of pinned here, but he just needs to act as a distraction for a little longer.

A sharp splat falls straight in front of him from above.

Emerald looks up and the jumps sideways to avoid another arced shot. As he stumbles to his feet a cone of the fluid passes over his head, and he manages to dive behind another wall.

Emerald darts out of cover really quick and aims a missile at the civilian.

>Dex Check, 12
>BOOSTED
>4+4+5+2
>15, passed.

The magic missile hits it center mass, knocking away the gun he was aiming and causing him to recoil backwards. The colt then ducks back away before he gets hit by anything.

"Got it. We're good, Emerald." The colt hears Joyride say from out of his view. He takes a quick glance and sees Joyride tying up the two soldiers and floating the third over to them in a protective bubble.

"Nice shot." Joyride says, "And you didn't even get hit! Come on, you wanted to get hit, didn't ya?"

Emerald actually considers this question. The cum clearly has some sort of magical properties. Perhaps he is immune to it. It's everywhere, so it won't be hard to find some.

Emerald decides to not touch the fluid. But...

The colt asks Joyride if they should collect some of this fluid. She wanted to study it after all.

Joyride ties up the last pony, making sure to remove the guns and stuff them down her mantle. She then pulls out a bottle and tosses it to Emerald and says, "Yeah sure."

Emerald scoops up some of the mysterious, thick white liquid and stoppers it. He's very careful not to touch it himself.

The others make their way over and stare at the three knocked out stallions.

"So, what now?" Ruby says.
