[RIOT EVENTS, OPEN] Skirmishes in the Slums!

Post by Pony Rioters on Fri Nov 22, 2013 4:27 pm

RIOT EVENT!
Skirmishes in the Slums!
Eastern Residential District
25th December, Yr. 4
Late Evening



Background:


The riots began four days ago with the arrest of a popular dissident among the ponies by the name of Ironquill deBronxheart. Today is the fourth consecutive day of unrest in the Eastern Residential district, and the rioting has spread from that area to other neighboring regions. Ponies armed with torches, improvised weaponry, and looted spoils are being reported in mobs as populous as four-hundred.

The official Griffon response has been to declare a state of Martial Law in the city of Manehattan which is understood to be effective immediately. Despite the grave nature of that threat, ponies rallying around their successes in the Eastern Residential District have continued to oppose authority throughout the city, and become increasingly bold in choice of targets.

Gentlepony's, Ponies who own property, and especially griffons are at risk of being injured or worse during this time of anarchy. All reputable sources recommend that anypony who values their life or livlihood avoid the riots at all cost. This has not prevented strong rebellious undercurrents in the riots from drawing in recruits and kindred souls from throughout the city.



A griffon had been slung up by his limbs, tied around his wrists and ankles and placed up for all to see. Someone in the unruly mob had done the deed, and struck a killing blow on the griffon, but it was impossible to see how much he'd suffered prior because they decided to immolate his corpse. The remains hung there, a grim reminder of how quickly a mob can become hysteric.

The area surrounding the griffon bonfire had cleared out, and the mob was no longer focusing on that area. A few stragglers ambled about the rubble and debris, some of them injured in some fashion, a few trying to sift through the debris for anything of value. A hag had taken to jabbing at the griffon with a sharp pole to try to break open his uniform, probably to look through his pockets.

The mob had moved on to its current focus- a small bunker of sorts, an old machine shop set deep into the ground, with barred windows and a solid door. The ponies had taken to the belief that there were Griffon soldiers trapped inside, and had started to ram at the door with a large metal-framed futon.

A rallying cry went up, and the ponies began calling for more help.

Refuge stood back a bit, watching the mob try to break in to the bunker. All the riots of the day, and this was the best chance he saw for some practically consequence-free raiding: If he did things right, he could get into that building, loot some most-likely-valuable goods, and get away in the chaos. Chances were that he could be as brazen as he'd like and anyone who noticed him wouldn't particularly care to remember what he looked like any more than they normally would, what with the active riots going on.

Still, that was for the future, and this was the present. First things first: Help the mob break their way in. And that required somepony to sort the horribly disorganized swarm into a capable group; and okay, possibly abuse the responsibility to further support his own gain from the situation.

This all was a translated summary of Refuge's thoughts into something reasonably intelligible. What he actually did at this time was light his horn and start messing up the manes of a few ponies at a time in the crowd with his telekinesis, hoping to distract and quiet them as well as draw their attention before calling out, "Ya ain't gonna get s*** done that ya want to in this state! LISTEN UP 'COS I KNOW WHAT TA DO!"

Chaos. The streets ran red with blood. Everywhere she looked, Serene saw devastation. She had seen similar scenes in her time, but it was impossible to get used to something like this. Taking a deep breath, she moved onwards, further towards the rioting crowds. A couple of the volunteer nurses from The Harmony Foundation charity, nervously followed in her hoofsteps.

The scene she saw broke her heart. A mob of ponies clawing at a door, eager to spill the blood of those who sought shelter within. It was a harsh reminder that the war was not the only thing the ponies lost. She sent the two nurses following her to tend to the wounds of the injured, while she looked to stop the cause of this mayhem.

"Stop!" she yelled out, hoping to gain their attention. She ran to a pony that was at the front of the crowd, possibly the ringleader. "Please I beg of you, stop this madness!"

Passing through the area, Tida saw the remnants of the charred griffon that was on display, as well as the destruction that the mob left in their wake.  Wondering what was going on at the moment, Tida followed the path of destruction to the mob where he witnessed hysterical ponies using a metal-framed futon to break into a building set into the ground.  A feeling started to build inside Tida as he watched the event unfold...

...He felt anger.

Anger at the fact that ponies were letting their emotions get the better of them, making themselves as well as other ponies look like they are the ones who are destroying the city, destroying the progress of rebuilding Manehatten.  Anger that there are injured ponies because of the riots, when there should be no reason for ponies to be injured.  Anger that there is a dead griffon.

Unable to take anymore of what was happening, Tida rushed into the mob, pushing and shoving his way to the front to stop the ponies carrying the metal-framed futon from breaking into the building.  By the looks of the mob, if there were griffons in the building, then they wouldn't hesitate to kill them like they did with that other griffon.  One death was already one too many, and Tida didn't want more needless deaths happening.

[[Sorry I'm late, got attacked by a dragon and some guy in a hood]]

Anger and hatred, that's all the crowd consisted of. There was no leader here, and there never will be. They don't need one for their goal. Brute Force is all they'd ever need. They were getting inside that bunker, and no one pony could stop them.

At this stage, every griffon in the area was dead or still being taken to that fate. Screams of sheer pain can still be heard through all the anger and hatred coming from the crowd.
The Bunker door was holding steady however, but even though it was still holding, it couldn't hold against such an enormous barrage that the ponies were throwing at it. Metal could be heard creaking, marking each level that that locks were breaking and bending. Those griffons were going to meet their fate, and that was dictated by the many.

Any attempt to stop them from breaking down the bunker door would be a serious risk, just as much a danger is it in actually getting inside the bunker. The Griffons are desperate, and the desperate can do wondrous things in the light of the moment. At currant, everybody was devoted to the bunker, with the edge of the crowd sometimes drifting off to cause more mayhem, and then returning.

Refuge frowned. 'That hadn't gone quite according to plan...'

He shrugged, and thought of maybe getting their attention some other way, at least until he figured out that if his magic and yelling hadn't commanded their attention, nothing he could attempt would succeed any better. Some other way to deal with this, then...

Eventually, he decided that the best course of action (somehow) would be to attempt pushing with all his magical might against one of the ponies. Said magical might was not necessarily great; he was much more a manipulator of small things than a lifter of big ones. But who knows? Maybe they'd stumble, maybe that would have some chain reaction on the rest of the crowd... he didn't know what he wanted to happen next, but he figured he could work with it anyway.

[[Sorry for the delay, I was honestly expecting another post from that other character but oh well! No more delays here]]

Everything was going to plan, well, then plan consisted of just bash the door down so it's unlikely things wouldn't be going to plan.
But suddenly, a pony felt herself forced to the side. She, along with the ones she fell onto, did in fact create a chain reaction. But it didn't go very far.

Their first reaction was to figure out who caused it, the mare that fell initially told them she was forced, but didn't feel anything touch her. Their immediate attention was drawn to nearby unicorns. Some who saw Refuge's horn glow multiple times pointed to him, whom else would have used magic again when they hadn't needed to?

A portion of the already angry crowd began to surround and approach Refuge, with the simple questions of, "Do you have a freakin' problem or something?" said another unicorn, clearly frustrated and about ready to throw a nice big rock Refuge's way.

Tida made in to the front of the bunker, where the mob was trying to break in.  He started to shove the ponies carrying the frame, trying make it so that they would drop the frame.  He did not care if he got hurt, nor did he notice a group of ponies gathering around a light-blue unicorn, looking like they wanted to kill him.  He started to yell at the ponies carrying the frame, but it came out in his native tongue "お前ら!何をしてんだよ?!(omae ra! nani wo shiten da yo?!)"  as he continued to try to get the ponies carrying the frame to drop it.

Refuge looked at the one unicorn who'd asked him the question. "Who, me? No... seems all'a you do, though," he said with an out-of-place smile. "And I don't just mean you're pickin' a fight with me; I can't count how many flaws in your mob I've seen already."

Seeing as he wasn't looking to die, he tried to make his way out of the crowd, excusing himself by saying, "'Course, that ain't my freakin' problem, it's yours. I ain't gonna interrupt it."

A few ponies using the barge were beginning to get annoyed, and not because a pony was trying to stop them. They couldn't understand a single damn thing he said.
Eventually one of the surrounding ponies grabbed his shoulder and spun him around to face him. He made a silly, almost insulting gesture to help tell this foreigner his next words, "Speak-a-da normal lan-guage, OK?"

Elsewhere, the light-blue unicorn didn't help his situation at all with his words. Many immediately blocked the unicorns way out, shoving him back where he was. They weren't happy as it is, and his insults only made them angrier. "Keep talking, we'll see how well that mouth works when it's hanging off!" the same crowd member yelled, followed by others.
"How would you like having no horn!? Coward!",
"Let's show him what happens when you try getting in our way!"
The crowd were hardly thinking right, but at this point, they were beyond caring.

Tida was facing the pony that grabbed him on the shoulder.  He knew what the pony was saying, but he wasn't going to let the mob know that, nor was he going to let them know that he could speak in a way so they could understand him.  Reasoning with the mob was pointless, so why should he try if they wouldn't listen no matter what he tried to say?  They seemed to not be thinking clearly, but looked like that they were beyond caring.

Giving the pony who turned him around a very venomous glare Tida continued to speak in his native language.  "そんなバカなこと言うのやめろ! (sonna baka na koto iu no yamero!)" as he immediately turned and tried to buck the pony in the face, though landing a hit anywhere would be good.

Refuge hid his sour expression for what he was going to do next. Swallowing his frustration at the situation, he said, "Y'know what? Fine. I'm sorry for sayin' mean things and shovin' you over. Now I'm tryin' to get outta your way so you can get back to..." he paused. "...To. Uh. The stuff you were doin'." Even he realized there was no way he could say 'murdering griffons' without inciting more anger.

There wasn't a sign of insincerity in his words, but he didn't dare believe they'd accept his apology and let him go. As such, he scanned the surroundings and mentally prepared himself for attack, even as he asked them, "So, yeah. I'm sorry; please forgive me? ...And don't kill me?"

Tida would definitely land a hit, though not in a way that was intended. The pony he intended to hit was and earth pony, so stopping and grabbing a buck from a fellow earth pony was second nature in this day and age. Although he definitely felt it, he now had the upper hoof.
"That wasn't very nice now was it?" The earth pony said in an angry tone, proceeding to force Tida to the ground by pulling against his back hooves. Once on the ground, a couple of other crowd members proceeded to pin Tida opponent down and twist one of his hind legs into a painful position. "Like he said, speak a normal language!" the mare twisting his leg shouted.

Over in Refuge's situation, curiosity caught the better of the surrounding rioters. He caused no harm, just annoyance. But why would you cause annoyance to a mob ready to kill?
"Actually, what the hay were you even thinking? Surely you had some reason for getting on our nerves. Tell us, what is it?" The previously angry rioter asked, followed by nods from others and confused looks at the sudden change in tone. Giving Refuge a chance to walk out of there unharmed.

"Gyaaaaaaaaa!" Tida shouted in pain as one of his back legs were twisted into an awkward position, and he was being pinned by a couple other members of the mob.  It didn't hurt as much as it should have however... maybe he still remembered what it felt like to be crammed into a suffocatingly hot, uncomfortable small cave with at least 140 others inside, nearing death back in Neighpon.  Maybe it was because he got infected by the disease called stupidity from the crowd and wasn't thinking clearly.  In any case, he didn't care... he just wanted the ponies ramming the front doors to the bunker to stop.

Tida wasn't completely helpless, as he had a trick up his sleeve.  Because he knew about his culture, he studied everything about it, which included martial arts.  He even practiced it to get a feel for how it was, and the ponies who were on him were about to be on the receiving end of it.  Squeezing his eyes shut then opening them, he yelled "黙りな! (Damarina!)", as he tried to kick the mare off of his leg by using his other leg, and rolling out of the pin using his small frame and agility.  He hoped to be able to get up so that he could defend himself properly.

Refuge was spared the difficulty of finding a good answer to that question by a loud cry of pain. "Now, that didn't sound right..."

Excusing himself with an audible, "What was that all about?", he began to make his way over to investigate the shouting, though even if he was uninterrupted it'd take time to get through the crowd far enough to properly see.

Tida was successful in shaking himself free, but remains to forget that he is amongst a huge crowd. Many of which began to simply swarm him, throwing rocks at him, punching him, attempting to grab and put him to the floor again. It would not be a simple task for one pony to stop an army this big.

Over in Refuge's corner, the ponies let him continue under curiosity.
"Well, clearly you weren't the worst opposition we're having today. Is it not obvious one of our own kind is being attacked because he refused to back away from the battering ram?... and speak our language." The pony said whilst following alongside Refuge.

Tida managed to get into a position where he could properly defend himself, but was immediately attacked.  He started to feel more pain as rocks and other ponies hit him, but shrugged it off as he tried to stop the ponies from trying to pin him to the ground again.  He was doing a good job defending himself for a little while, but started to slow in his movements.  It was at that point that he realized that if no one else helped he would probably die, as the mob was a large mindless, unforgiving mass of ponies that probably wanted to seriously injure or kill him.

Post by Prism on Thu Apr 17, 2014 7:17 am

Prism had been helping ponies around the city dealing with those that would pray on the weak. With him dressed in his now repair Equestrian military amour and two swords on his side normally would make the attacks walk away. Those that still had some fight in them still a few good blows with his hoofs sent them running.

There were a few times he saw griffons being killed. He could have stepped in and he was sure it would be something that Silver would want him to do, but he was there to help ponies not griffons so left them to their fate.

He was walking through a quite part of the city with just the background noise of a city in a riot, then he heard a scream, a cry for help. His ears turned to the sound it was just on the other side of the buildings. It would take too long to go around so he had to go over.

He looked at the buildings around him he could up onto the roof easily. With a glow of his horn he disappeared and appeared on one of the buildings balconies from here he could see the roof of the build and with a second flash he was on a roof. He didn't waste a second and was on top and looking at what was going. It was clear who was in danger a brown stallion that was being circled by the mob. With a third flash he was in the street close to the mob. He took a defense stance as he was not sure how the mob would react.

He called out as loud as he could using the tone he would use when he was commanding troops on the battle field “Stand down and leave that stallion be!” and he stood ready for what would happen next.

Refuge quietly ignored the pony who spoke to him, internally dismissing them as too far gone in their rioting to notice exactly how wrong their statement was.

He briefly considered waiting a short time before acting any particular way, at least until he saw another unicorn appear and call for the brown Earth pony to be let go.

Refuge thought quickly, and decided he'd made enough enemies: It was time to make allies, and the way to do that was absolutely not to stand aside as the rioters tore two ponies apart. The alternative would be far easier to work with, later... And besides, at this point he really didn't care for this whole mob, anyway.

And so, shortly after Prism's arrival, Refuge called out, "Yeah! Leave him alone!" And, just to make this appear personal to the mob rather than some random moral pony, he lit his horn and added, "You ain't gonna hurt one more hair on my brother!"

Serene felt helpless. Her voice was drowned out in the sea of anger. Instead of trying again, she decided to help those who were injured with the rest of the nurses she brought with her.

After tending to a slightly wounded pony, she directed her attention to a strange cry that was heard over the rest of the shouting. Curious, she made her way into the mass of ponies and gasped as she saw Tida being torn apart by rioters. "Leave him alone!" She cried, adding her voice to the few voices she recognized as complaints to leave Tida be.

Tida is such a kind soul, he does not deserve this, she thought.

Another, more sarcastic but evil sounding, voice came from the crowd. "Ahahahah! Yooooou didn't think we'd just let traitors walk around safely did ya?" The figure said as he pushed through the crowd.

As the figure finally came into view, it would be clear he enjoyed keeping his strength up. A large, earth pony stallion lumbered slowly past the crowd and into view. Slowly?
Well, he was quite well armoured. And by armoured, the earth pony was wearing thick, stone slabs as armour. Broken and cut into a more armour-like shape, his improvised armour was held together with chains and some cloth here and there to act as a short of padding.
He lumbered slowly because that armour was hardly designed to allow movement, and more to just let you stand in place and take a good hit. Improvising was all you could do unless you had well designed armour already, but very few cases are so physically demanding.
His weapon, was a long sword, most likely taken from a griffon soldier.

"We have a idiot who can't speak normally, a scavenger with no common sense, a mare who can't take a hint and a stuffed-up soldier who think's we're his own little toys to play with!" He said shortly after looking at his problems, then he broke into laughter. Once he regained himself he used the sword as a leaning post and spoke with a mocking tone, "You're in a crowd full of reeaaally pissed off ponies, and you 4 think it's a good idea to tell them to stop AND threaten them? Good plan, good plan! Bravo!" He started to clap insultingly, other members of the crowd who were focused on the events before them actually started laughing along with the stone-armoured pony, as if realising the 4 ponies mistake at how outnumbered they were.

The ponies around Tida became more distracted at the strange laughter, and the ponies that were around the 4 'traitors' began to spread out, creating more breathing room.

Prism watch the large pony walk towards them, well large to much Prism very much had the same build thanks to his father being an earth pony. He had already sized up the earths ponies armour. Yes it would very much defect any blow Prism could do, but there was gaps a number of them were the stone slabs joined as well the places the pony couldn't hang them off. He would be easy to finish off with a well place stab, but he was hopping to get this down with out blood.

He would of take more of an aggressive stance but there was three others with him and last thing he need was to get them hurt. So it was time to be diplomatic.

He took a step closer "I am only here for the pony, once I have him you can go back to killing the griffons" He didn't care about them, he just wanted to make sure that ponies were not being beating or killed just because they didn't share the mobs views or being victimized.

"As for your numbers," he looked to his left and right seeing them fan out. He wasn't worried he face same numbers but being griffons "I think you are going to need more for this to be a fair fight" He looked the earth pony in the eye daring him to make the next move. "For if the name Captain Steel Prism means nothing to you, it soon will" He had no idea how much of his action in the war were still talk about. There was those that called him a hero at point even if he didn't accept it, but he had already planned out what he was going to do if this earth pony make the wrong chose he was going.

Refuge eyed the pony in his stone armor, and considered his words for a bit... and giggled. Then chuckled, and guffawed, and before he knew it his entire story was blown and he was surely dismissed as a madpony as he laughed uproariously, seeming to try to match the volume of any of the other ponies.

After a few tries, he managed to calm himself down enough to speak, tears in his eyes. He addressed some of the others in the crowd, asking, "This guy ain't really your leader, is he? He seems more the dumb muscle role... Really, really dumb muscle. I mean, he clearly ain't payin' attention ta what's goin' on. We just want the pony outta here, which'd mean ya don't all have ta deal with him."

Putting on an exaggerated show of thinking,  , he added, "Hay, I figure I should warn ya. Guy like this, tryin' ta suddenly claim the title of leader without the brains ta prove it? And tryin' to stir up trouble beyond what's needed, like he just enjoys causin' pain regardless of target? Ya follow him, he's leadin' ya somewhere you don't wanna go, and ya don't shut him up, he's draggin' ya there himself."

Serene said nothing and tried to let herself shrink back into the crowd. She thought it would be better to leave the situation to the captain. Though she doubted it really was the old war legend, it was obvious this red unicorn was experienced.

As for the blue unicorn, Serene wanted to slap him.

Seeing that the ponies around him were distracted by laughter coming from somewhere in the crowd, he took the time to quickly assess the situation.  He noticed that there was Serene, a military unicorn, and a light blue unicorn who was crazy being surrounded by the mob, facing a large, earth pony stallion.  Knowing that the other 3 ponies weren't part of the mob, and that there was safety in numbers, Tida ignored the pain he was feeling to get to the group as quickly as possible, pushing and avoiding the other ponies of the mob until he was in side the circle with the others.

The stone armoured pony began to laugh even more as the crowd moved into more of an arena. Stopping any inside it from retreating.

"Lead? Hah! Who ever said anything about me leading them? In my opinion, they can do well on their own! What, are you calling them incompetent enough to need a leader? Hahah!"
He waved a hoof to Refuge, signalling his lack of interest in his words. Not looking in Refuge's direction, he said happily, "Yeah, I'm more of the dumb muscle role, but that doesn't mean I can't give others some advice! Like, perhaps, advising them to kick your ass! But that's hardly my choice to make! Besides, you tried to be their leader. What were you gonna do? " He started chuckling even more, many of the crowd were tempted to take that advice and they weren't afraid to show it. Although many were still interested in the strange, stone pony's confidence.

He finally gave Prism a look of interest, "Numbers? Numbers my dear Captain? Oh sure, you may have the skill to take on an army, but I prefer to fight with some honour. If you live up to your legend, fair enough. I won't complain, well, if I don't get killed! Then it won't matter what I think! Hah!" His long sword was stuck in the ground from leaning on it, so with one hoof he pulled it out. With him taking a less relaxed stance, more of his armour was visible through detail.
All four of his lower legs had stone pieces, held in place by tight chains, protecting the front of his legs but leaving the expected gap in the back to allow actual movement.
His upper legs had the thick slabs, protecting his torso and upper legs from wide swings.
His back and torso in general, had slabs of stone, cut into shape and aid in protection. And the chains used to hold it in place also provided protection here and there.

"Y'know, I'm probably gonna kiss the dirt doing this, what, with the good chance of your friends here jumping in to help. But what the hell? I'm always up for a good duel!" He said swinging his long sword left and right, getting the feel for it. Giving Tida a quick look as he jumped into the pony-made arena.

It didn't help that those behind him felt they needed to add their two cents and laughing like that really didn't help. He was too use to taking the lead and those behind him reminding quieted unless something needed to be added.

Prism had heard the story's about himself over the years and they were very much a lie to give ponies heroes to hope for and hope the will save Equestria. The last thing he would ever do was fight with honour as all that would do is get you killed. Fighting with cheap tricks and doing what ever it takes is the only way to keep on living, but this wasn't a griffon he was just a pony and he wasn't here to kill them or hurt them if it could be helped.

"I have no plan of killing or hurting other ponies the last thing we need to be doing is fighting between our self, but if you force my hoof I will protect myself and those that stand beside me" He stood his ground not moving or even flinging, just waiting. Waiting to see the groups next move.

Re: [RIOT EVENTS, OPEN] Skirmishes in the Slums!

Post by Kroll on Fri May 30, 2014 7:35 am

Kroll stood atop a building that sat a block away from the commotion in the Eastern District, watching the violence in the streets below through the weathered lens of a spyglass. His gaze traveled from the gruesome bonfire to the crowd of ponies trying break down the door of the old machine shop with their improvised battering ram, taking note of some kind of small, arena-like circle that had formed within the crowd. With an exhausted sigh, the captain collapsed the spyglass and stowed it away before walking away from the edge of the flat rooftop and back towards the small improvised command post he and his squad had set up.

The post itself wasn't much to look at; a few quivers-worth of bolts here and a couple ration containers there were all scattered around a crate with a map and a few documents spread about on its surface. At the moment, the four other members of the captain's squad were sitting about on the roof, passing around the whetstone for their blades or eating their rations as they rested in wait for their next mission. They had been in the thick of the riots for the whole day, moving from hotspot to hotspot in the city like bees on a warpath to disperse the violent crowds. But as the day was coming to an end, so was their resolve. 

"Alright, stand-to, gents." said Kroll as he approached the map-laden crate, motioning to his squad to gather around it. "I know we're running on fumes right now, but this mission is going to make us give it our all, so listen up: word is that there's a squad that's managed to barricade themselves in a building down there." he said as he taps at the corresponding section of the map. "Our job is to get them out of there before those rioters do. And if these orders aren't enough motivation for you four to do your damn best, the idea of what those rioters will do our brothers and sisters down there should be. You've seen what they've done our other comrades, I can assure you that they won't be off any better."

The captain paused for a moment before continuing the mission briefing, directing his squad's attention to the red, dotted path that was marked down on the map. "Plan is, we're going to make our way to the trapped squad from below. We'll navigate our way through the sewer system and infiltrate the building they're trapped in from there. Once they're accounted for, we'll make our escape back the way we came. Remember, time is of the essence here, and we only an hour or so before Mjolnir arrives to disperse the rioters. If we don't signal 15 minutes after they arrive, they're going to continue on with their orders."

After taking a brief moment to tuck the map away and put his helmet on, Kroll looked back up at the griffons before him, checking to see if it looked like they understood the steps and severity of the task at hand. "Alright squad, let's get moving. The clock's ticking and our comrades are counting on us. Let's not let them down."

Tida looked at the large pony with the stone armor.  Honor?  He wants to fight with honor?  I wonder... he thought.  Nowadays, honor was a rare commodity as ponies would say that they will do something with honor, but would do the exact opposite if they were in a bad position because of the war.  Tida was thankful that he wasn't being mobbed on at the moment, which gave him time to rest, though, he made sure to be aware of his surroundings in case that the crowd decided to attack him.  He also kept an eye on Refuge, Serene, and the two ponies facing each other in the center, especially Serene, in case the crowd decided to attack her.  He hoped that he could rest though.

Aella rested at the peak of the building that the guards stood upon, watching the smoke rising all over the city. The days work had been running her ragged, but she was more than ready for this final push.

She listened carefully to the briefing. The part about sewers did not sound fun.

The Stone Pony stuck his sword in the ground again then reached behind himself. He took out a helmet, made of stone just like the rest of his armour, that would protect his entire head and neck. He also took out a syringe, the contents of which were hidden by labels.
Chuckling out loud, he said "Though, I'm sure you think honour is worthless. Which would mean you'll use your magic against me, however, I hate magic with a passion." Once he finished his sentence, he injected himself via the neck and then put his helmet on.

Once the helmet was secure, he looked at Prism just as the interior started to glow blue. The Stone pony began laughing almost uncontrollably,as if the whole situation was one big joke despite the possibility of death and griffon intervention.
But as he picked up his sword, the most clear effect would be seen. An odd, blue shaded aura appeared around the Stone pony before quickly fading out. The effect of this, won't be obvious.

"Now, Captain. I am going to try and kill you." he said in Prisms direction as he began laughing even more. "And the only way I'll stop, is if you can answer this question!" He said again, as he swung a sword intended for two-hooved use, with one hoof.

"What do you know about a earth pony named, Scrapper Theodore Ferrous." He said, chuckling at the middle name a little. Before walking towards Prism, ready to swing his sword at him with just one hoof. Despite that not being the right way use it.

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

Elsewhere, the battering ram was beginning to make visible progress at last. The hinges on the heavy doors were beginning to give way, and the only thing keeping the doors up was the blockade the griffon's had made.
The rioters were getting excited by this fact, and their morale soared.

The Griffons inside were getting desperate, and began moving boxes inside the room that the rioters would enter from. Hatching a plan that might work, or end terribly.

Prism watch the earth pony, he had no idea what he had just injected himself with but he was sure it was nothing good. Everything else he did was an attempted to intimate him or scare him. None of watch was working.

He had face many other foes before and all of them had there own words or other scare tactics yet Prism is still here and most of them were not anymore  "Do your worse. I have nothing to fear from a weakling like you!" He said with a snort blowing hot air out of his nostrils. He didn't move from his spotted standing his ground waiting for the earth pony to make his move.

This made of looked like Prism was opening up for an attack but he was ready for the strike but he had his his spell fixes in his mind and a mental grip on how he was to pull his swords out once the earth pony move in for the attack and were his own attack was aimed at, right at one of the openings in the earth pony's under leg and at the right angle he would hit his heart and end this fight in one move.

Seeing that the stone pony pulled out a syringe and injecting himself with it, Tida couldn't help but quietly scoff as he was surrounded by a blue aura that quickly faded out.  Honor?  Yeah right... you would fight with what you have already, not give yourself a boost to even the odds.  His thoughts were interrupted by the screeching of metal as he saw that the doors to the bunker was starting to give way.  Oh no... they're going to kill everyone inside!  Tida thought, wondering what to do, since he was now trapped inside of the pony-made arena, and couldn't get to the ponies using the battering ram.

Noticing that Prism was in a attacking stance, Tida looked between him and the stone pony.  An idea came to his mind, one that would surely incite the ire of the stone pony, as well as the crowd, but if it bought the ones inside of the bunker time to think of something to get out of the situation that they were in, that would be good.  He got into a ready stance, hoping that if Prism struck the stone pony, he would drop the sword that he was carrying.

The Stone Pony continued laughing hysterically, and once in a decent range, he made a sudden leap forward. Using the large sword as help to do so, he planned on bringing it down on top of Prism, but when was that ever really successful against a faster opponent with training?

If the first overhead strike missed, he would follow up by dragging the sword around him in a 360 degree swing.

Prism waited staying in the same spot not moving and waiting for the attack. An overhead strike, it was a slow attack but very powerful.
 
Clearly the earth pony expected Prism to move out the way, just like most griffons that would use this attack on him. With a flash of his horn his two swords come out of the scabbards one going up to block the attack the other for the opening in the earth ponies amour just under the leg pit that was clearly on show thanks to the type of attack he went with. This fight was going to be over in seconds.
 
The sword he used to block the incoming attack hit the earth ponies sword, the force of the attack was a lot. Something that Prism normally could stop in a heartbeat in his younger years. This time it took a second for the blade to come to a stop just above Prism head. He could feel the Earth ponies’ strength pushing down but he could hold it there now and he would have to pull it away to do anymore attacks but it would be too late.
 
His second sword aiming right for the hole, aiming so that it would hit the most internal organs as it went through. It was on target, it was always on target he had done this so many times he could hit the weak points or unarmored parts in his sleep. He saw the blade hit but it didn’t push its way through his body but just hit his skin and stopped dead. There was a blue ripple at the point of impact that went out like a stone being thrown into water. He pulled the sword back.
 
Hold the ponies sword in place he spoke to him “Hate magical, but use it yourself to give you a magical shield agent weapons.”He said with a snort. He felt the weapon pull off and watch as the earth pony did a 360 degree swing. He much know that Prism couldn’t hurt him. Why else would he leaving himself open? This time Prism moved his two swords to act like scissors and as the sword come round blocking it with both of them stopping the sword dead. He couldn’t hurt him but he needed to move him so the others could get away. Leaving the swords to hold his attacks weapon he spun on the spot and sent out a back kick aiming for his attacks head and neck.

Post by Kroll on Mon Jun 23, 2014 7:52 am

After a quick countdown from three, Kroll and the rest of his squad leapt from the roof and extended their wings slightly as they made their descent to the cobblestone streets below. When the first four squad members touched down, they took up a defensive position to make sure the area was clear while the rest of the squad landed. Once the squad had regrouped, the captain quickly checked his map before signaling to the rest of his team to move out.

Moving through an alleyway in a tight line formation, the squad briskly made their way through the streets adjacent to the chaos in the slums, keeping their weapons raised and their heads on a constant swivel in case any rioters came their way. Before too long, the guards reached their first objective: an old, grimy manhole that led into the sewers below the city. After prying the thick disk of metal from its resting place, the squad was greeted by a blast of stale, putrid air, causing those closest to the sewer’s entrance to be reminded that they still had functioning gag reflexs.
After a brief session of dry heaving, the team was back on track. As two of the guards were preparing lanterns for the journey ahead, the captain stood before the remainder of his squad, being mindful to breathe through his beak as he spoke to them.

“Alright gents, this is it: the point of no return. Don’t think that means any of you have a choice to not go down into the sewers, because you don’t; we’re all going. I’m not going to sugarcoat it, s’going to suck down there and it’s going to smell even worse, so breathe through your beaks, not your nostrils. You will most likely get wet down there, but please try not to fall in if you can help it and don’t take anyone with you if you do.” Kroll paused as one of the guards working on the lanterns looked over at him and gave a thumbs up. Nodding back at the tercel, the captain wrapped up his brief.  “You all know the drill: stay close and stay alert. Don’t do anything stupid, and if you think you’re going to be sick, aim for the water  or the enemy if you think you can stick ‘em.”

Taking one of the lit lanterns and lowering himself halfway into the open manhole, Kroll took a last deep breath of fresh air, savoring it before looking to the rest of his squad. “Okay, gents…get excited, because it’s about to get gross.”

Aella followed closely with the guards, touching down gently on the street. She took a moment to appreciate the stale stink of rotting food and other smells that filled the slums. Perhaps remembering that would help her deal with the indescribably foulness that no doubt awaited her down in the sewers.

The hen dropped down through the manhole and directly into the steady flow of filth that filled the tunnel below. She whimpered quietly at the vileness of it all. It would be impossible to get the stain out of her pure white coat. The smell would haunt her nightmares as well.

Post by Kirtar on Sun Jul 06, 2014 4:38 am

Hearing the hinges to the door of the bunker starting to break down, Kirtar started to become a little concerned, though anyone who took a look at him would only see a very composed and calm looking face.  He sighed as he continued to pile boxes against the door to try to slow the rioters down when they came in.  "Well, this sucks" Kirtar said.

He had caught wind that this started about 4 days ago when some pony was arrested which started these riots.  Kirtar thought that it was a small riot, but soon found out that there was a huge following of other ponies started to participate, and that everything in the path of the mob was either killed if it was living, or burned to the ground if it was a building.  When he saw the mob approaching, he thought it was a good idea to hide in the bunker, since if he tried to fly away, he would have just been pursued by rabid pegasus that would want him dead.  It was good for a while until they started to break down the door.  Now, if he didn't think of something, or find another way out, they would probably be dead, and that would suck.  After piling a few more boxes against the door, he started to look for another way out of the bunker.  He hoped that he found something.

Serene had no idea what to do. Everything has just erupted into chaos. While all the attention was on Prism and the stone pony, Serene made a move towards Tida.

"Tida!" She shouted over all of the commotion. "Are you alright?!"

Continuing to try and be aware of everything that was going around him, Tida heard Serene call out to him.  He looked at Serene and nodded, though in truth, he was still hurting from being beaten on by the mob earlier.

Turning his attention towards Serene, he slowly made his way closer to her, keeping an eye on the stone pony and the crowd to make sure that they weren't attacked from behind, and to be able to react if the stone pony dropped his weapon.  He would want to help the griffons trapped in the bunker to get out alive, but would protect Serene first as he didn't want anything serious to happen to her.  She was one of the few ponies that tried to help rebuild the broken city without resorting to violent means, which he respected a lot.  There needed to be more ponies like her to rebuild Manehatten, and Serene needed to be there to help.

The stone pony let go of his sword and braced for the kicks impact, catching it by letting it hit him in the chest. Prism was basically kicking a wall at that point. He then used both hooves to grab Prisms hooves, and immediately try to throw them up so that Prism would end up on his back. The stone pony backed away for a second to speak and pick his weapon back up,"Where I come from, using magic to help you in a fight is cowardice! But, hahah, It's not frowned upon to make sure they can't use it against you!" He said, laughing most of the sentance.

"I'll give you a hint, stop using magic to guide your weapons, and fight me like the soldier you claim to be!" He said as he lunged towards Prism, attempting to hit him with a quick slash in whatever stance he was in.

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

Thanks to the bunkers doors having found their durability thinning, many Griffons inside where starting to panic as it came closer and closer to falling. Though one griffon chose very specific boxes and placed them down rather than just any old box they saw. The second that door fell was the second he'd place his bet and hope for the best. Most of his comrades were to scared to pay him any attention, he just hoped they would still be able to listen when the time came.


((Just a little note, if you plan on stopping the rioters from entering the bunker you'd best do it quickly. Can't drag it on forever xD))

Post by Kroll on Mon Jul 14, 2014 5:42 am

Kroll and his squad trudged their way through the sewers that ran underneath the district, doing their best to keep out of the putrid river of filth that sluggishly flowed alongside them. Before long, the guards reached the area that--according to the maps they had brought along--was directly below the building that was serving as a makeshift fortress to the guards seeking asylum from the rioters outside.

Checking the map a final time, the captain nodded with approval. "Alright, this looks like the spot. I want the perimeter secure and the first charge set up in two minutes, gents. Come on now, chop chop!" 

Not wanting to keep their captain waiting, four members of the squad rushed forward to secure the area in pairs as one guard marked a spot on the floor with paint before setting up the first shaped charge, making sure the conical explosive was good and ready before connecting it to the detcord and detonator. "Alright sir, charge is set and ready to go whenever you are." said the tercel as he made  his way back to the rest of the group, gingerly passing off the detonator to Kroll.

Waiting until the squad was a safe distance from the planted explosives, the captain gripped the detonator's plunger with a firm claw. "Fire in the hole, fire in the hole! Charge detonating in 3! 2! 1!"

Upon pushing down the detonator's plunger, the shaped charge exploded with a sharp crack like thunder, briefly illuminating the area with a brilliant flash of light. Due to the explosive's design, the heat, pressure, and shockwave it unleashed was concentrated onto the section of the ceiling it sat below, causing considerate structural damage to the aging concrete and a thick shower of debris. Once the smoke had cleared and the damage was assessed, the guards wasted no time in planting the next charge where the last one had sat, exercising the same level of care and urgency.

Post by Kirtar on Tue Jul 15, 2014 3:48 am

Finishing placing as many boxes that had a good weight to them in front of the door, Kirtar started to think about how they could escape their current predicament.  I wonder if the stun baton would work properly this time... if it does, maybe I could stun enough of the rioters to make a wall of rioters in the doorway, but, hmm... it has been malfunctioning more than usual recently.  Better than nothing I suppose.

He heard an explosion coming from what sounded to be under him.  Kirtar clicked his tongue is amusement and amazement.  "If those are rioters below us, I have to give them credit for their persistence in wanting us dead.  Or maybe that's someone who's coming to rescue us.  I really don't know.  In any case, this is going to be our ticket out of here" he said to no one in particular.  Looking at the rest of the griffons in the bunker, he said in a calm tone "Move away from this area and be ready to react to whatever comes out when the bunker is breached from below.  Wait first and don't attack immediately, as it might indeed be someone who is going to rescue us."  Kirtar backed away from the spot that he expected the hole to be, and took the stun baton off from his back.  He got in a ready stance to flip the switch on the baton and attack if rioters came through the floor.

Re: [RIOT EVENTS, OPEN] Skirmishes in the Slums!

Aella winced as the explosion rang through the tunnels, amplified by the walls of the confined space. She refused to try and cover her ears with her talons. Rubbing that filth all over her head was unthinkable.

Prism felt the hold on the his emery's sword go, he wasn't holding onto it anymore, very foolish. He want to sent the sword flying away leaving him unarmed, but this earth pony could move fast even with the amour he had on.

Prism didn't have time to push the sword away as he was flipped. This didn't worry him at all. He knew his kicked was unless but it was more of a show he could get in close if he wanted. With the flip he let the earth pony do what he wanted and once he was at the point of no return on the flip. He flash out of view for a split second. Then landing on his hooves look right at his target.

There wasn't much more to say, he knew anything magical at lest what he could do wouldn't work so it was time to do this the go old earth pony way. "So be it." He said as he used his magic and pulled this swords that lay on the floor, as he had to let go to use his teleport spell. One he send to his hooves the other into his mouth. There was no more talk only battle now.

The attacks come in as fast as the earth pony could swing. Most unicorns would cave under the strength of such attacks but not Prism he had earth pony blood running through his veins and he had trained many years with his farther and he trained the royal guard. This pony was nothing next to him.

Prism blocked each attack easily and he could attack a number of times but all he would do was hit the amour, that was just point less. He would wait. Then a shock wave and the vibration of a bomb ran through the floor. One that was very close most likely the building the griffons were in. He knew the rioters didn't have explosives and Silver had put her hoof down on the rebels to do anything aggressive, so let left the griffons. He had a mouth full of sword so couldn't say anything at this point.

The Stone Pony's attacks stopped once he felt the ground shake. Some of the crowd surrounding them felt it too, and started conversing with each other about what was causing it.

The Stone Pony made the same conclusion Prism did, and assumed Griffons. Though he went a bit more in-depth. Not taking his eyes off of Prism, he spoke his thoughts, "So that's why they haven't wiped the place yet! The good ol' rescue mission! Good show you feathery fiends!" He said, laughing a bit afterwards.
He turned his head to look at the others who were trapped in the ring with him and Prism, "If you wanna help those Griffon's a little then I won't stop you, though I expect the Griffon's are gonna wrap this whole show up very soon." He said, chuckling a bit as he turned back to Prism. "So, soldier, you gonna tell me something I want to hear so we can leave before the cavalry arrives?" He said as he slowly began to approach him.

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

The crowd near the weakening door gave out a loud battle cry because they were almost through the door, and ready to finally get at the Griffons inside. Unaware of the ground shaking thanks to the ram and their own excitement, many were already throwing rocks and other things through the gap of the slightly open, but blocked, door.
The door itself was only being supported by the boxes blocking it, so when they were finally moved out of the way, the rioters will finally get inside. The boxes themselves were beginning to moved and become displaced from the constant force. The boxes that were placed by the panicking griffon before contained a bunch of burnable items such as cloth, so it should come to no surprise that the same griffon wanted to buy some time by setting the whole stack of boxes up in flames. His comrades would likely noticed him carrying a small, lit torch, ready to toss it when the door felt like it was about to fall.

Serene wasn't exactly sure what was going on at this point but if the stone pony was right, the griffons were going to hit this place hard after the griffons in the bunker were either safe or dead.

Serene nudged Tida, trying to get his attention. "Tida, we can't stop this without putting ourselves in danger; we should leave now."

Tida didn't know what to make of the situation going on at the moment, even though the stone pony pretty much spelt out what was happening as well as what probably was going to happen afterwards.

Hearing Serene's suggestion, he nodded.  "That would be for the best, but as of right now, we can't really leave as the mob is blocking our way to anywhere.  If we tried to leave, we would probably be attacked.  The best thing is to hope that the crowd disperses before the griffons come and finish up here" Tida whispered to Serene, continuing to watch the stone pony as well as being aware of his surroundings.

Refuge, having kept his mouth shut and his hooves and magic to himself for fear of inciting any more hatred than he had already, tried to gather his thoughts enough to determine an escape route from this situation. Unfortunately for him, nothing seemed like a good choice; as Tida had noticed, there wasn't a clear way through the mob, and the building wasn't likely to provide much more respite even if he did manage to get inside before the rioters.

Reluctantly, he resigned himself to waiting a little longer for a real opportunity to escape from there. He looked over at the other ponies who'd objected to the mob's actions, somewhat regretfully, and wondered if he might get the opportunity to help them out, too.

Post by Kroll on Fri Jul 25, 2014 6:06 am

"Fire in the hole!" Kroll shouted before pushing down on the plunger that was connected to the second shaped charge, detonating the explosive with a similar level of intensity and force as the first one. The section of ceiling that sat above the blast was already weakened considerably from the first charge, and the second one managed to successfully punch through it with enough force to make a decently-sized hole in the floor of the bunker the other guards were trapped in.

After a few moments, a ladder was propped up against the edge of the hole and three members of Kroll's squad climbed up out of the hole and into the bunker, followed by the captain himself. While his squad started to set up some kind of trap behind the barricade, Kroll turned to the squad that had been trapped.

"Hello. I am Captain Kroll, and my squad and I shall be your rescue party for this evening. If you would like to avoid deaths at the hooves of the rioters outside, please feel free drop down this hole. My guys below will get you to safety."

The tercel paused for a moment to check on the progress of the trap his squad members were setting up, wincing at the sight of the bunker door, which looked just about ready to fall over. "I'm sure you all realize we are rather short on time, so if you could all please enter through the hole in a calm and orderly fashion, that would be much appreciated."

Meanwhile, a dark shadow was beginning to cast itself over the Eastern Residential District as a lone airship slowly drifted over the scorched and ruined buildings in the area. Lovingly known as the Streetsweeper to her crew, this Mjolnir-class airship was a medium sized craft as far as gunships went, and was designed solely for air-to-ground combat situations. Her port and starboard sides were both lined with repeating ballistas that could unleash a hellish rain of arrows in a matter of minutes, and had specialized ports along the hull to drop ordnance.

This craft had only arrived recently and was called forth to quell the riots that had been raging on in Manehattan for the past four days, as well as to serve as a show of force in order to remind the rioters below who was truly in control of not only the city, but of the nation of Equestria itself. Due to the nature of the mission it had been called to carry out, the arrows loaded in the Streetsweeper's ballistas were of a non lethal variety, with the tips ending in tight pouches of sand instead of arrowheads. The ship's ordnance had been changed out was well, with devastating bombs replaced with chemical irritants that would cause discomfort and trouble breathing, but not death.

The airship turned in a slow, graceful manner until its port side was lined up with the mob in the streets below. With its weapons armed and hatches sealed, the mighty gunship hung patiently in the air, waiting for its time to strike like a reaper at the foot of one's deathbed.
