  1. Prologue "I am so sorry." Hou said, while the body of last Temple defender hit the floor. Despite the wording, there was no hint of remorse in her voice, which was instead dripping with sarcasm. And why would she feel it? Defenders of Xuanwu Temple were her sworn enemies, Fenghuang Monks after all. But it was not a reason for today's invasion... Hou was stirred from her contemplation by the bang outside. Ahh...the first, pre-mature fireworks of the First Moon of this year....The holiday was one of few of the Empire traditions she still practiced, despite cutting herself off from most of Long-Guo customs.....But she wasn't above exploiting the opportunity it provided either. Shuren gazed for a moment at the display of lights and noise, appearing over the cold steppe - after all, Xuanwu Temple was north-most settlement in the realm - before averting her gaze and stepping over the body. Those monk's lives were like those fireworks - a promise of enlightenment and ability to spread their voice to converse with all things, but overall brief and pointless. She herself was like a planet - not as spectacular, but ultimately much more important, ever-present and only smart entities could understand her true influence. In the past, she wouldn't need any more reason then her enmity to start such slaughter. But it wasn't the past right now, and Hou wasn't the mare she was then. She had the temple in her sight's for a long time by now, but she was waiting for an excuse that would make her choose to claim what was underneath the temple.....And right now, she was carrying that excuse with her.... "Take anything of value. Especially books, no matter how unimportant they appear to be. Be methodical, take your time. This is first night of First Moon, and all knows that Xuanwu Temple dedicate it to prayer.....we won't be disturbed." sorceress ordered her masked minions. While she could very well do the job alone, she had to be sure that no-one escaped. This guaranteed that what happened here tonight won't get discovered for days, perhaps even weeks. Shuren walked to the now, mummified corpse of the head monk - a sign of her soul stealing - and took a key from around her neck. "I will be below. Follow me after you are done here." unicorn mare made yet another order, and took a walk to the hidden door. The door, the chambers below that it lead to, and their contents were supposed to be secret - known by few, important people: Emperors of Long Guo, Head of the Imperial Watch, Abbot of Fenghuang Monastery, Serpent King and of course, head monk of Xuanwu Temple. Naturally, Hou knew about it too. For a long, long time at that. And today she was ready to to claim what was inside..... "Let's see if today will bring more information about you...." she spoke to Remembrance Stone - safely resting in pocket of her dragon-leather duster - as she passed the hidden door, and down the stairs they revealed. Her descent was long, the prize was deep beneath the mountain, but finally the stairs had ended. The dark. that she was surrounded by didn't bothered her, but it would make the search all but impossible. A quick spell, and every underground chamber was illuminated by a ghostly-blue light, coming from now lit torches. Many Emperors and Empresses of Long Guo pasts have decided that there were certain types of knowledge that were too dangerous to be spread, but too important to be forgotten either. In their hubris they locked it up - never to be seen again, unless desperately needed. But they forgot that for clever mind, no prohibitions or obstructions were issue for too long. Especially if this was a mind of Hou Shuren. "Let's make some quick reading. Let's start...with foreign sources." she said. As she cleared the dusty desk that looked comfortable enough. The quick reading stretched into hours, and soon her Shadow Warriors appeared. Hou wasn't disturbed by the newfound bustle of her minions at all. Only ordering them to leave any scroll, tablet or book tied to relics alone for now - which they did, taking anything else that wasn't nailed to the floor instead. Finally, at what was perhaps three A.M. , Hou gazed at the book of Saddle Arabian origin. The volume appeared - and felt - very old, more ancient then even herself. It didn't speared to be tied to artifacts at all but..... Upon studying it, she found out it told about reign of Pharaoh Theth'Ka....who was grandson of infamous Teti-Ra. This would make a book a copy of even older written source...which still made it one of oldest 'true' books in the future Saddle Arabia, if not the oldest. But what really made Hou pay attention, was the brief mention of supposed power Teti-Ra possessed - an ability to rip the deepest of secrets, memories from the minds of those who oppose him. Unfortunately, it didn't elaborate on them further...apparently Theth'Ka took knowledge about secrets of his tyrant grandfather to his grave. Shuren grit her teeth in frustration and...wait...didn't that book was suspiciously heavy? After careful examination, sorceress discovered that one half of the cover was heavier - and thicker - then the other. Normally she would be vehemently against damaging the books, but.... After reaping the cover apart, Shuren was now holding a golden disc in her hooves. It radiated a magic similar to he Remembrance Stone, but ultimately different. It was a not a magical artifact, but a magical seal. perhaps one to a hidden vault or a tomb. And hieroglyphs adorning it, made it clear to what pharaoh it belonged to. "Theth'Ka...." Hour later Hou was standing outside. Every treasure inside was looted, every text secured. Thus she didn't hesitate to set the Temple on fire. The foolish peasants from the steppe won't find it suspicious at all, until well in the morning at least - after all, there were records of monks making similar celebratory pyres in the past. By the time somepony notices that was not the case, she will be far away, and tracks of her activity here will be covered by embers and ashes. "....It seems my search has only begun. It will be nice, a Saddle Arabian vacation..." Hou smiled to herself, as she turned away from now ablaze temple. She had get back to Wunyun. To get to prepared. Prepared for.......
  2. In search of Hut-waret Following her successful acquisition of Remembrance Stone, Hou Shuren, Sorceress Eternal seeks to unlock the secrets behind her new possession. Her studies led her to one of most ancient pharaohs of ancient Saddle Arbia, Teti-Ra - a legendary - if infamous- sorcerer king, whose iron hoof united the until then divided nation. Now Shuren seeks to uncover the history behind the mythical king and his forgotten capital city, Hut-waret - all to unleash full potential of the Stone, and to acquire other relics that may still lie in lost city. And nothing, and no-pony will stand in her way! This thread will split players into two groups - one allied with the evil sorceress, and the other, dedicated to be a thorn at her side. Please link you character, and and tell which side you chose to join. This is potentially long running, however chronologically it happens just after inauguration of new Ponyvil mayor. Posting order will be maintained. Dramatis personae: Seekers of Hut-waret: Ciraxis - Hou Shuren - Ancient sorceress/alchemist from Long Guo, and perpetrator of the whole mess. To meet her goal she allied/hired a few less and more shady characters.... PyroBlaze - Dox/Hei Xue - Another sorcerer from ancient times, occasional mentor in magic and former hero. Dox - just like Hou - is member of Seven Shadows, a secret cabal dedicated to preserve existence of many forms of dark sorcery, with Codex enforcing the members to not betray the cause or turn on the other. Not without risking the wrath of other members that is. Due to this, him and Shuren go way way back, and are one of the few creatures of existence that can trust each other. Dox joins Hou on her quest partially to improve his own knowledge of magic arts, and partially for his own amusement. The Opposition: dragonofruin - King Sombra - Former Tyrant of Crystal Empire and Hou old acquaintance. After a meeting and short 'scuffle' in Whitetail Woods, grudge bearing ubrum resolved to be a thorn in sorceress side. NiktoBarada - Tongue Twister - Translator of ancient languages and equinologist. Tongue Twister found herself in wrong place at the wrong time, and in spur of the moment on sorceress part, ended up corrupted by Shuren's dark magic. Now apparently robbed of her species gift of flight, Tongue seeks to stop Hou, while struggling with new, malicious personality in her head.
  3. The great expanse of sand and an unfamiliar city was a pleasantly new sight to the striped Equestrian's eyes. Saddle Arabia was nothing like Equestria: pale sands and buildings of golden stone with a unique architecture, broken up by little splashes of green plant life. The city she'd grown up in just seemed so dull in comparison, but she didn't hate it. It was just a nice change to get outside of Equestria's borders for a fun little trip for herself to break up the monotony and it brought her some enjoyment to be somewhere she'd never been before. Adventure. It was a little scary too. Yuna was here alone with nopony she knew, though she really didn't know anypony back in Equestria to start with. Avoiding the streets, the zony had flown up to glide gently while she surveyed the city from a pegasus's view, enjoying the sight of it from a different vantage point. The skies were a nice, clear blue with faint and distant clouds. Nothing to land on, and she would rather not cause any problems by landing on the roof of somepony's home. It would only be once she finally worked up the self-confidence that she'd finally bother to land in one of the emptier streets and holding out her half folded wings with a grimace. She didn't fly often, and that'd been.. a bit tiring in this dry heat. Giving them a shake and folding them over her saddlebags, Yuna hesitantly started down the street. She supposed that now while she was here, she'd have to find somewhere to sleep during her visit, and figure out where she'd be able to buy food. Did they speak a different language here? She only knew Equestrian! Maybe she didn't think this through all the way, but Yuna felt the trip would be worth it all because it was something new to experience.
  4. Sand. Sand everywhere. For the third time since coming out to the dig site, Princess Bluebelle tried to discreetly cast a little spell to banish every bit of grit from the interior of her fashionable khaki clothes. Her self-cleaning magic, developed over the years as the neat-freak of a unicorn royal dealt with the unavoidable contacts with the dirt and dust of the real world, was usually quite effective, but she felt now that there was always at least one bucking grain that was lodged somewhere sensitive. Perhaps it was just a psychosomatic reaction to seeing the vast plains of sand outside the habitable areas of Saddle Arabia. Normally, the Princess would never venture outside of the beautiful gardens, lush fields, and picturesque streets of the horse Sultanate, but as one of Equestria's most prominent diplomatic ponies, her visits usually were spent in the personal company of royalty or major leaders, the Sultana in this case. And among the duties this Sultana took upon herself was the ceremonial dedication and tourings of the many archaeological digs delving into the history of her country. And that history was fascinating, of course, but Bluebelle still silently lamented the geography. Still, ever the premier diplomat, she did not let her good grace or smile falter as she accompanied the ruler. "I'm afraid I haven't read too deeply into the myths surrounding this dig; your country just has so many. Wasn't there something involving some kind of... sphinx, was it?" Bright, curious eyes; interested smile, and temporarily pristine coat gave all present the impression of the Equestrian tourist, of the more respectful and respectable kind, of course!

On her muzzle she wears bifocal, which hang from a chain that is pierced into her ears. Her eyes became damaged after a scuffle at a young age, which never healed properly. She has a long, flowing mane, the crest of it kept in a fauxhawk style, while much of the rest of her mane remains braided. She has a black underbelly with a bit of gold speckling toward his back thighs which resemble the gold speckling of her wings. Her fetlock are rather fluffy and a patch of feathers at the shoulder of her wings tend to puff up when she is angry. Her wings are deep turmeric at the arms, draining into a deep gold that is soaked in fiery orange. The undersides of her wings are orange with gold speckling of down feathers, much resembling a fire. Residence: Saddle Arabia Occupation: Scholar of Architectural Anthropology Architectural Anthropology is the study of the relationship between ponies and their environments . She had become interested in other cultures when she became sick. Learning of the world she could not experience filled a void within her. With her brother away from her side she looks to take her studies across the globe. Cutie Mark: Grey Cloud, Three Descending Bolts departing at the center, the end points of the left and right bolt facing in outward from the center bolt. Unique Traits: Large Wings: Large wings aide in the mare's ability to generate thunder from her clouds without stomping on them with his hooves. They allow long distant flight, spending much of her time gliding, but due to their size she is limited in the aerial acrobatics he can partake in. Namesake: Distant Thunder is capable of stirring up thunderstorms from a distance rather than needing to be on her cloud to do so. Her larger than usual wings clap strongly, allowing this feat. History: On a dark and stormy night twin foals were born to a mare by the name of Night Wind and a stallion known as Torrential Storm. It was a difficult birth for Night Wind. To her were born a rambunctious pair of foals that were the pride of their tribe. With manes as red as fire and wings that glittered with clay, sand, and sun... they were seen as oddities with such large, tri-colored wings. The twins were born to the Storm Family, a respected bloodline from Saddle Arabia. Their tribe had many generations of artists and entertainers. They were once a nomadic tribe which eventually settled amongst the growing cities around Saddle Arabia’s culture of knowledge and philosophy. Because of their position as artists and entertainers, the family was able to maintain a comfortable lifestyle. They often times saw to the weather management that was vital to the survival of the desert horses, but never strayed far from their duties on the stage and in theater. While some were raised as government officials, others were given permission to participate in academic studies and even fewer: the military. The family was very strict. Thunder and Lightning were raised to be entertainers, in part due to the tri-colored wings. They were seen as the perfect subjects for the stage and aerial dancing, or even serving as court jesters. They would not be allowed to decide their roles in life. They were larger than most of their kind, but not by much, though it was still enough to make them a little awkward and targets of bullying amongst younger peers. The Twins were very close, as twins were wont to do. Separating them was a fight. They were often set apart as it became so problematic that it was better just leaving them together. Thunder was the older sister. She was born first, but had been the last the cry. Lightning was the younger brother, born last and always the first to tears. They were raised with strict, binding rules, as were the generations before them. Colts did not cry, and fillies did not spit. The twins were stubborn and would often corrected or disciplined. Thunder was weak, many feeling her blustering was due to her weaker body. Though, in truth, it was something more sinister than that. Their grandfather, who was the current head of house, felt the current punishment techniques were unsuitable to train the young ones. Thunder was the ringleader to the pair and her actions always did to sent the young colt into mutiny against the elders' attempt at discipline. Thunder was often sent outside on the cold desert nights to separate her from Lightning for extra training. The pair would remain close even if all that disbarred them was a thin sheet of glass, making the attempt at separation pointless, though it did keep them quiet. Thunder eventually developed pneumonia from a cold that would normally be easily be healed from and ended up hospitalized. Thereafter she was often hospitalized and was unable to continue her training as an entertainer. Lightning was devastated. He was an asocial colt, only ever participating in activities Thunder did. He never understood why the adults didn't help Thunder. She and the colt never slept alone so, throughout her sickness they were forced to sleep apart, but Lightning crept into the room she was quarantined in or ran away to the hospital when she was too ill for the busy family to tend to. The made became increasingly outgoing, despite her illness and would oft escape the manor under the light of the moon as Lightning was their caution and she their confidence. With naught but anger after they had taken away her brother she was driven to a reckless attitude and behavior, trying to continue training despite her weakness. Afraid what others might say, or think of her failing to uphold the standards held by their family’s traditions: Thunder was sent to study Architecture at the institute where she would eventually develop a superiority complex and weaken herself if it meant outperforming others. Lightning had always been the one to act with due caution to discourage her more rowdy behavior so she could better respond to others. Bullying her peers by way of mocking insults eventually led to her removal from the school under the pretense of a wing disorder. Her larger wings were said to make it difficult for her to balance resulting in often falling down. Eventually Thunder came to believe this. She was soon able to go tutoring. Her grandfather secured a fine tutor for her through his connections. She studied, becoming interested in the architectural structures of ancient pony cultures around the world. When Lightning would visit her and tell her of all the different ponies in the world, she would be thankful knowing she could never meet them, being much too sick to travel. At her encouragement, and her own selfish desires to see the world through his brilliant eyes, she asked him to travel. In doing so she would lose her brother. The relations between Equestria and Saddle Arabia had allowed the nation to open their borders to those allied to the Alicorn sisters. Because of this he would have a much easier time in his travels. Since then she had become anxious, unwaveringly tense. She wanted to travel a while, meet faces and study the different cultures. Travel, study… to see everything Lightning did... Character Personality: Thunder is ill mannered, impolite. Her arrogance comes from ancient family traditions and a rich history that gives her a sense of privilege. Her weakened body is disregarded by her association with her noble house, allowing her to enter places others may usually be unable. Sometimes this pride is used to mock and act pretentious so she may get her way, but the fear of rejection fuels her to overblow her experiences and act self-centered. She is a cunning, seemingly uncaring pony but is a bit of a flirt with much anypony that passes her way. She can be a bit of an adventurous individual, obsessively driving toward knowledge, especially of other and unique cultures, which often time leads her into troublesome situations and deep, dank caves that nopony should be. She can become ecstatic over certain subjects and fly off chattering about them without notice of social cues indicating he should stop. Character Summary: A scholar that loves to learn and travel, she is a bit reckless and tends to disregard her responsibility to her family. Driven by a desire to see the world her brother loves the pegasus often goes above the sense of self preservation to try and show off or take. She is easily done in by challenges, her pride difficult to shake. Even still she can be caring when the situation calls for it, capable of using her body when not driven to fear how her sickness consumes her strength.

    The first official design of Thunder. Though I've drawn her many times this is the first properly colored piece for her. She'll be apped along side Lightning who is being reapped for some editing.

  8. Of all potential setting that our adorable ponies and non-ponies could explore, one is unfairly underutilized despite the obvious potential it has. I am writing of course, about Saddle Arabia. For some reason it's constantly omitted from various adventures (despite having more ancient ruins on the square mile then everything else) or other shenanigans. Making OC's from the place doesn't deem popular either, I myself having only one in memory (Hi Pretzy!). So without further ado's but hopefully with some clever guidance from our Staff and Loremakers, it's about time to brainstorm kicking up things a little in the land of doozie dunes and striking sands! Humbly presenting first idea - with further ones from other users, as well as realized threads that will be added in the opening post, in addition of information about them. * Extraordinary Erg Encounters - desert suddenly isn't so desolate when a group of characters meet in the middle of it - including one quirky wildlife photographer.

  9. It was not often that Wordsworth Psmith, of the Canterlot Psmiths, traveled alone. When he traveled for work, he accompanied Prince Blueblood as a confidential secretary and social advisor. When traveling for pleasure, he preferred to bring a friend or two along. Unfortunately, the only window of time when his boss could allow him some much needed vacation time did not coincide with any holes in the schedules of his list of friends and acquaintances. But, such were the vagaries of life, and as he would always say, "Such things are not to be complained about with idleness, but endured and triumphed over, with whatever means or allies come to hoof. The strategist is ever the adaptist...." And he would then go on like that for a full ten minutes or so. Regardless of whether anypony was actually listening. The upshot of it was, he threw a dart at a map, and as a result had booked himself a first-class ticket on an airship headed towards Saddle Arabia! Not that he hadn't been aiming for the place; the culture of these strange, southern Equines had all the fascination of the exotic, and had even informed his last Nightmare Night costume. And, for somepony as talkative as himself, the notion of a country that was practically rules by debate made him feel as if he would be coming to a kind of Utopia, or at least a home-away-from-home. Which brings us to the present, where the young unicorn stallion was elegantly draped over a deck chair, monocled eye scanning the horizon while active lips pontificated to the empty air. "Solo travel brings with it freedom, the soaring of the lonely eagle is constrained by no considerations save those in his own head. And yet, does the eagle find joy, or melancholy? Do we not all gladly pay our liberty in coin for society, as one would pay a bit for bread? What is the meaning of this strange adventure we call civilization, if it is not that?"

    Unimaginative title is unimaginative. Haven't really been motivated to draw anything recently, but I happened to get into a discussion with someone on Skype over the look of the Saddle Arabian horses shown on the show. More specifically, how I really did not like how they were designed. Someone then challenged me to try designing one, which inspired me enough to give it a try. I'm actually pleasantly surprised at how he turned out (though I only just now realized he kind of uses Katsuo's hair design, only in a curly variation). Something bugs me about it though...I think maybe the head is too large for the slender body/legs. But I'm not sure. Either way, there's this guy, who may actually get apped in the future. Don't think I'll actually RP him at all if I do, but a character application? Maybe, maybe~
  11. From the album: Regular Cast Pics

    Probably seen this on the side bar now, but this is a larger image of the same. Enjoyed making this; the challenge was to get as many species as I could without it becoming cluttered when shrunk to sidebar size. For the curious, the reason for no yaks was the picture was completed before Party Pooped came out. Why Cheerilee? I always imagined her as the tourist type, going on trips (mostly in the summer) to various places in Equestria, collecting images and souvenirs for herself and for future school lessons.
