    Tomb of the Alicorn - OOC

    OKay, that was a little longer than I expected. Things got busy at work and needed my attention on it. Sorry about the wait guys, I will be posting this week and get the ball rolling once more.

    "You assume correct," Grit says as she pedals. "I'm sure King Midos wants to give everyone a chance to get where they are going before the weather turns wet again." Above you can already see a few pegasi already making their way to the city. "Suppose its good time for anyone to ask questions before we get there. Not that there's really anything to know about acting around Minotaur, we put top value on strength as you now know. Along with showmanship and powress." (OOC: Any pony with questions go ahead and ask otherwise I shall move us to the city and meeting with Sandscript.)

    Once everypony and golem were seated, Furious mettle settle for riding on top of the rickshaw while Bronze grit took the seat and began peddling. She took off down the main road and hit the solid pack dirt leading towards the great forest hills. She starts to pick up speed as she easily propels the vehicle forward. Around you, the rest of pony kind are getting ready to depart as well. You even see Dr. Caballeron negotiating with some Minotaur for travel arrangements. It appears he is not making much headway with the taciturn bullmen. The further into the interior you pass the point of the Pegasus controlled area and the dampness of the forest hits. Light reflects off the damp foliage, and the scents of the forest permeate the air. The weather is most definitely perfect for a trip. "We'll head directly for Sand Script, no doubt you pony folk are biting at the bit to see him." Bronze Grit says as she pedals. She coasts down a hill, letting the momentum build to make it easier to traverse the next incline.

    "I suppose it would, pegasuses and griffins aren't they only ones that can manipulate the weather." Bronze Grit pauses for a second, "and really, we can't either, but the Reigning Champion can." She hustles the group towards a house where a large rickshaw is parked outside. The conveyance appears to be a cross of a wagon and a carriage with a bicycle style attach to the front. Its rather large, to meet with Minotaur comfort, so it presents no problem of carrying Deorward and the ponies. While they are loading the guests on, Bronze continues to talk, "to answer your question, not that I'm an expert-" "The Golden Axe gives power to the current Reigning Champion," Furious Mettal says, hoping to the top of the rickshaw, "only the biggest and the baddest Minotaur can use its power." Bronze kind of stands there, left with very little else to say. "What she said?" Sighs loudly. "I'll come back and get your luggage, I really want to get you to Sand Script and King Midos before the weather turns bad again. So, I'm ready when you are."

    Bronze chuckles, recovering her balance, “yeah, that he does. He’s been taking this delay rather while, I suppose. He didn’t like it when some pony accused him of trying to prevent others from exploring the tomb. That lead to some rather harsh words when Major Strike, another explorer I guess, came along with support from the, uh, ponies that help other ponies dig around in the dirt. “Canterlot Archaeological Society?” Mettle chips in. “Yeah, them,” Bronze says nodding. “All I know that the stink reached King Midos and he put hoof down till he could sort it out. I don’t think he got much help from the Society and that put him in a mood. So, he declared no more fooling with the tomb. Might be a wait too, the Championship is coming up in a few days and he has a lot of rivals wanting his throne.” The hustle and bustle of the port town returns, but only for a moment, acute ears pick up a sound in the distance. A musician striking a chord on a guitar, its loud and clear. The tune is stretched out for several seconds before it fades away. A few Minotaurs stop to listen, ears perked up. Bronze looks off into the distance, her face lined with concentration. “Wait…” Another strum, and the trees in the distance wavered. This time everyone heard it. Before the chord could dissipate fully, the musician went into a complex riff. For those that like rock'n'roll he was quite good. He was someone that put a lot of time into practicing. Bronze Grit started to smile as bobbing her head for a moment. “Well, I guess we aren’t going to be waiting long.” As the final cord was struck and left linger a brilliant flash of gold light could be seen in the horizon as it streaked into the sky. It pierced the clouds above and with a brilliant concentration of the light blasted them apart. The shock wave began to grow opening up the sky till it hit the magically controlled area over the port. All the remaining clouds over head were taken away as the thunder storm rushed over head in a sympathy of chaotic nature uprooted by powerful magic. The storms cleared land and were pushed far out over the ocean. Now the sun was shining over the Minotaur lands turning the storm covered features into sunny woodland hills and moutains. Bronze Grit quickened her pace, “Come along, my guests, I think we have about a days worth of good weather to get to our destination.” “Oh! Are we going to see the Champion now, mama?” “Yes, sweety, we can finally go see King Midos, at Coliseum City.”

    Bronze Grit and Freya nod to each other as they are introduced. Freya shuffles her wings and says, "what the Professor says is mostly true. I am a merchant captain looking for business opportunities and when I heard of the Tomb and everyone coming to explore it; I saw a rather big business opportunity as a provider of equipment." "You're from Griffinstone?" Bronze asked. "The Griffin Isles, we're, a little different." Gave them a tight smile. "So, nice to meet you Professor and company, but I have a few things to do before the days over. Hope to see you again at the Tomb." "Yes, I need to find my daughter and take everypony here to their rooms." She felt a small shape climb up her back, almost knocking her over. "Can one stay in my room?" Furious Mettle said. She had a food box slung over her shoulder. "Child, I swear..."

    "Dude, you just like impressed everyone here with what you did. Strength is a highly sought after skill," Tenacious said. "That goes a long way around here." The crowd began to disperse now that the challenge was over. It was time to go back to doing what they were doing before, the pleasant distraction now over. it allowed Bronze Grit to get through and make her way towards Deorward and hopefully the rest of the group she was looking for. "Hello, Tenacious, nice throw," Bronze said. The youth smiled and backed away from her offering his thanks. "Thanks, Bronze Grit, uh, I gotta go..." He flags his friends and they take off for another part of the port. Bronze studies the Golem before looking over to Iris, "if we're done here I got a place where everyone can stay till King Midos summons everyone. So if you're ready?"

    Deorward lengthy pause after the young Mino turn started to cause another murmur among the crowd. Perhaps he decided he was not up to the challenge after all. Then when the might golem moved their attention return in force. Quite a few gasped when he simply picked the anchor one handed and hefted it to his shoulder to gauge his target. The anticipation was think as the audience gawked as he took a few moving steps and throws the anchor harpoon style at the bell. The propelled anchor is on target and hits the bell with a thunderous ring of heavy metal against metal. The point of contact shifts the massive weight of the bell sending it swaying to one side, the clapper striking the inside true. The bell rings back and forth, the rhythm steady as it slows from the jarring hit. The peal sounds throughout the village and beyond making those that were not even there to look up from what they were doing and nod their heads in approval at the challenge accepted, but answered. The youth stands there, arms hanging, mouth gaping. "Wow..." He looks to the back of the crowd as someone, Bronze Grit, claps. Her daughter takes up the next course and begins to cheer wildly. The ponies and Minotaur's follow as their stunned awe evaporates to cheering at Deorwards accomplishment. "Impressive, " Freya says aloud to the Professor. The Mino youth walks up to Deorward, humbled. "I never see anyone do that before. Tell me friend, what is your name? I am Tenacious Crimson."

    Freya watch the Professor do his magic. Once he was done she drop to the ground and almost huddle up against him. Knowing he was going to ask why, she says, "i don't enjoy the prospect of being squished by an anchor." The teen Mino nods his head, grinning wide. "Why yes, you may assume. Here, let me show you how it is done." The youth grips his anchor and lifts it from the ground. The crowd backs away, giving them an open space for the contest. Seems more Minotaur's and ponies are gathering around for the contest of strength. The youth shifts the weight, testing it before lowering it to the ground. It spits into his hands before gripping the massive ring and begins to turn, dragging it along the ground. He begins to strain and pick up speed, the momentum picking the heavy weight off the ground. He continues to spin till he has a good rotation going before he screams out and lets go, hurling the anchor up towards the bell. The anchor impacts against the side of the Ferrier's bell and clangs against the brass outside. As the anchor falls away, the bell sways, but it does not ring. The audience murmurs, some happy to see him hit the bell, others not impressed he could not ring it. The teen Mino groans as he slaps his head, "I thought I had it this time." He looks to Deoward and motions for his turn. "Heh, lets see if you can even hit the bell."

    Kreidal pops and reappears next to the bench, seating himself. That leaves Freya to take wing and fly over to where he is, hovering in place. "So is that really a golem? I never seen one like that before." Since the Minotaur's are getting use to pony magic, it doesn't take them completely by surprise; just causes a few to jump back, bowling over several of their comrades in the process. The teen Mino snaps his fingers in victory, or to add that important snap to his final pose before pointing upwards. The location is a tall tower, some seven stories. Set in an alcove, its a large brass bell that has seen its fair share of abuse over the years. Not just from exposure from the ocean, but tremendous impacts. "Yeah, no fighting, orders from the Grand Champion, King Midos, buuut, I can best you in strength by hitting the Ferrier's bell and ringing it." He grins as four of his buddies bring two over sized anchors and drop one at the feet of Deorward. It hits the heavy wooden floor with a ring of iron. The gathered spectators start murmuring and nodding their heads at this acceptable challenge. "Only you got to use this." He grins wide at the golem. The Mino was very confident in his abilities it seems.

    While the trio converse the young Minotaur has been trying to get their attention with his flexing. "Finally, did you guys have a nice chat?" The youth looks partially deflated, "Aw, c'mon, just one round? I've been bragging I an out strong you better than anyone else. You gotta' do something." He ignores some of the snickering from the gathered crowd as his demeanor goes from bold bravdo to slightly desperate to earn back some cool points.

    The teen minotaur is thwarted by Deorward as he addresses him, lowering the bottle. Though the smug look returns with him saying, "Oooo, you don't want to hurt us." He tosses the bottle over his shoulder and strides over to Deorward group. "You're the only thing that's comes off the ships that even looks remotely challenging." He strikes a pose, and unlike Iron Will, lacks the snap and big production value. "So what do you say, dude, lets do this." Bronze Grit waves Iris back to get a look, then blinks, then says with a certain amount of respect, "THAT'S your friend?" She notice the commotion and sighs heavily. "Oh lord of metal, he's being challenged. I hope he has the sense to refuse else we'll be here all day." She starts pushing through the growing crowd towards Irish comrades. "Move horn heads, coming through." The closer Iris gets the harder it is to get through. "You better go ahead Iris." "I'll ride with her." Furious Mettle chimes in. "How about I throw you over there," Bronze warns.

    Brexit

    Jolly Jack is always good for pushing propaganda. I think the 'people didn't know what they were voting for' is the media's way of throwing a hissy fit that Britan voted to get out of the EU.

    Freya chuckles lightly. "I wish that was the guess, Professor. I think the problem is that somepony is accusing him of hording secrets about the tomb from the rest of Equestria. That it might lead to a larger finds in the future concerning alicorns and pony origins and what not. There is an important pony, Major Strike, whose behind this. Seems he has some sway with the Equestria Archaeological Society and he's pulling some strings." The group beings to enter the Minotaur town where the architecture changes to more durable coastal living. Here ponies and Minotaur seem to be co-existing with little problems. Some seem to even enjoy it, though here the displays of strength, prowess, and other athletic feats are far more prevalent. Mostly a lot of the younger bulls showing off and the earth pony or Pegasus upholding the honor of Equetria. More than one set of eyes are focusing on Deorward as he walks by. Bronze Grit muses as Iris tells about her a little bit about her life. "Magitech, eh? Sounds like a worthwhile field to get into. Heaven knows we could use a few more smarties around here to upgrade our towns." She pulls a pouch off her belt to hand to Furious Mettle, "go grab us something to eat, sweetie." Furious Mettle takes the bit pouch and looks to Iris, "what would you like Ms. Pony?" Deorward notices that one younger bulls, an older teen, is getting ready to hurl a bottle at him. It seems he is begin egged on by his compatriots. (Everyone is currently entering the town before both sides, with the Professors group entering the market area and Iris just outside the said area.)
