    Viridia felt like Fan Knife wasn't actually getting what she was trying to explain, but the urge to point that out faded in the face of Moony coming. "...and I mean, Stellar's cute, but Moonylicious has a butt that fits the name, y'know?" She said, hoping Fan Knife would at least get the plot to mess with Moonshadow.

    "But what threats are there to fair Tauronto? If this Abbas activist gets everything sorted out, he will likely have his riches but have more bodies backing his goals, and wealth and hooves are the two great assets in these sorts of matters. Given that it isn't likely that he won't be jailed, than perhaps it would be best to questions the horse's motivations and passions, and to get something on him."
    "Well, not counting any pirates and raiders still out there after Abbas pulls off his gambit, there's a fair number of threats still within Tauronto," Doc converses. "The mage guild has a few members that would cheat, steal, and kill to get ahead. There's also that strange armored pony we met at CrunchyMunch who nearly lopped off Stellar's wing. Pretty sure we'll cross paths again after we thwarted her or him."

    Fan Knife blinked before she replied, sounding confused.

    "Wait, what, Stellar has more musc..."

    Almost immediately, Fan Knife's leaned her head back slightly and her ears folded tightly down on her head, rather like a cat that had just been confronted with something puzzling. It took several moments from her face to transition from honest confusion to utter shock, her mouth opening slack-jawed and her face turning a rather deep, uniform shade of purple. She started to make some rather squeaky noises in a seemingly involuntary fashion, but she moved a hoof in front of her mouth and she moved her hat to cover her face, and started to shake her head in apparent disgust.

    Mirror looked vaguly uncomfortable, and moved her right back leg in place, as if the question made her jumpy.

    "It is a... very strong pony who is frauded... for work." Mirror replied, her voice having a wavering quality that made her sound much like how she did when Doc first met her.

    "Your foe was a unicorn, correct? I'd think that they would be a agent of that so called guild." Bertly replied, sounding as if it was obvious, "Thugs and such are a dime a dozen, but a teleporter is a special kind of pony that wasn't very common even back when Equestria had the funds to train unicorns as right proper solders."

    Doc starts to ask another question, but he stops and thinks. He nods slowly as it appears he understands what Mirror is alluding to. "I see. No, I don't think she's that." Because he can see Mirror is uncomfortable with the subject, he presses no further.

The ghoul had a little smirk on her face.
    Damn she's good. Moonshadow thought to herself ruefully.

    Aww, you'd break Stellar's heart talking like that, Moonshadow called, grinning with a bit of a blush as she emerged from the shadows. Her grin only widened at Fan Knife's reaction.

    Viridia wanted to tease Fan Knife some more, but her reaction forced the Pegasus to settle for an encouraging smile. Besides, Player 2 had entered the arena.

    "Both of your break my heart whenever you don't greet me with kisses." Viridia said, then flourished her wings and with them, her crystal pony royal armor. "Check out my new armor. I reckon I'm at leastt 20% cooler now."

    Ha, it'd be worth it to see just how far you'd take it. Moonshadow said, laughing before admiring Viridia.

    Very nice. The mares will be falling over each other to get to you. Moonshadow paused, of course you'll have to pry Choro off first. She's not going to leave you alone once she finds you've got some genuine royal armor from the Crystal Empire.

    The look that formed on Mirror's face was patiently odd, but she said nothing else and shook her head and wandered towards a corner of the bus, apparently feeling the need to explore the strange vessel she had found herself in.

    "That seems quite possible, but we're going to need evidence," Doc says in thought. "The unicorn said he or she wasn't our first assassination attempt, right? So... someone hired 'em to kill us. But who wants us out of the way and what did we do to earn that level of ire?"
    "I don't know, lad, I'v known you for little more than 48 hours." Bertly replied, managing to sound about as dry as a entirely servile robot could without verging into straight sarcasm, "Have you ruined any cuteceańeras as of late? Broken any strikes? Any corporate espionage gone awry?"

    Fan Knife grumbled out something that probably some horrible curse in Neighponese, as muffled through her hat.

    "Yeah, it's probably royal alright; I don't think something that could've been made for just a general." Fan Knife said as she placed her head back on top of her head, face still a shade of livid bluish-purple but fading, and began to continue walking forward again, "The unicorn'll probably like the book. Isn't she Equestrian, though? Why would she care about something from the Crystal Empire? It wasn't all that great when I was alive; visiting there was sort of like visiting one of the horse nations, but instead of looking like a big shopping mall in the middle of the desert it was a bunch of overpriced glittery boutiques surrounded by a magic bubble that kept the place from freezing to death."

    She paused briefly, and spoke again soon after, sounding thoughtful.

    "I guess the food was nice." she conceded.

    "Nah, nothing of that sort. The first thing is, whoever tried to kill us was someone that knew we were going to the CrunchyMunch factory," Doc begins. "That would narrow it down to folks at the hospital and probably Andante. Choro, can you think of anyone else who knew we were going to the factory?"

    "There's no way in Tartarus I'm giving Choro the spellbook, not when she'll probably want to lend it to the Olives or some ****." Viridia laughed. "Did you go to many other nations in your time...?"

    Doc points to Stellar, indicating she brought up an excellent point to the mystery at hoof. "Yes, they also knew we were going to the factory, didn't they? Alright, so Bertly's suggestion is indeed the strongest one so far. Second question: Motivation. Most of the people we know at the hospital don't have a stake in the factory, so they can be ruled out. We do know that the mage guild collects a lot of old world tech, And they're not a really unified guild, so they'll have members with their own personal plans outside the usual guild activities. Plans to say... crib the bio-tech in that factory before we destroy it. So... we have Nightcore, Just World, the operatives you met, Stellar.... and anyone they told about our mission. I reckon we're gonna have to poke around the guild to round out our list of suspects, especially if we go out to Ministry Row. We just have to be careful, and not screw it up for Choro."

    "I don't think that the Guild's our enemy. Even if somepony within the Guild is tied to this."

    Choro sighs. She's not eager about speculating over a matter with so little to go on, but if the conversation's going to happen anyway, she might as well weigh in. "That assassin looked like nopony I've ever seen. That spear, the armour, the way she moved..." The little wizard's mental image lingers on the spear. She wants to propose a certian theory but... no, she has no evidence, and won't risk misleading the others. "I can't prove she's not a Guild agent. But my instinct is that she's affiliated with whoever set the factory in motion, that she's the one who killed the Olives' scouting party, and that our involvement there is what made her attack. If she wanted to just kill us..."

    She waves a hoof around the confines of the Skywagon. "Well, we're outside the town, half of us are away and nopony's ready for a fight really. Why isn't she trying right now?"

    "Badassly: Because I cut her to pieces and she doesn't have an awesome cybersurgeon like Doc here!" Stellar boasts, still happy trippy from the cocktail.

    "Seriously though, we recovered pretty quickly. But perhaps we should be a bit more on our guard."

    Doc nods in response. He then says, "For the record, I don't think the guild as a whole is our enemy, but rather one or two members are out to get us. The guild just makes for a good curtain to hide from us. At the moment we only have potential suspects. We'd have to do a good bit of legwork to figure out who's the one that don't like us."

    Doc humbly takes the compliment with a smile. Shucks. "I reckon we are capable, but yeah, we need to step up our defenses. Last Stop sounds like a real rough town, so they might try something there."

    Madeleine poked her head into the bus, looked around for a few moments, and stepped inside. She then headed for the mat of rags that she had previously been dumped on, stepped on it, and moved around in a circle as she dainty attempted to smooth out any creases or folds or particularly obvious pieces of wasteland debris before settling down and yawning rather loudly. Meanwhile, Mirror stared at her, apparently not really into the conversation and still unused to the unicorn in the funny outfit.

    She waves a hoof around the confines of the Skywagon. "Well, we're outside the town, half of us are away and nopony's ready for a fight really. Why isn't she trying right now?"
    "An idea," Bertly said, "How many members of this Guild are in this town? If they all have their own intrigues, attacking when there's many ponies who are friendly with us who could recognize them would be foolish, or tip them off."

    "There's no way in Tartarus I'm giving Choro the spellbook, not when she'll probably want to lend it to the Olives or some ****." Viridia laughed. "Did you go to many other nations in your time...?"
    "Yeah." Fan Knife replied, "My sister didn't leave Neighpon with a lot of foreign money, or a ID that would've been accepted, so we kept traveling west and finding work until we eventually ended up in Equestria a few years later after getting rich. It was okay at first, but I'd say that about halfway though the war there wasn't really any other powerful countries that weren't allied with Equestria or the zebras. There were a few alliances that tried to stand up to them and stay neutral, but they all ended up like Neighpon. All the nicer countries my sister and I went through imported all of their resources from both Equestria and the zebras before the war so they could spend more time and money on building their infrastructure and focusing on the arts, so when they began to fight they were pretty much helpless, and there was a sort of plague that started to kill young ponies and griffons over there, too. At the end, most ponies who could afford it lived in compounds in the cities and had food sent in from aircraft, and it was pretty much anarchy outside of those places because the law really didn't apply to anything outside of major crimes and the governments were mostly trying to avoid getting killed in riots. Not as bad as what it's like now, but pretty close, and it was dependently a little rougher to some degree. You Equestrians are really only a little split between the different types of ponies, but over there ponies and griffons had deeper identities tied to where they lived; there were also less pegasi, so most ponies only knew of griffons as the ones living in the clouds and what pegasi popped up lived in ground villages.

    Two groups could live side by side in one country in different villages, but if one pony goes across into the other village and a pony from the other village saw it, that pony would get beaten with clubs and thrown into a ditch and the other pony could go into a pub and get drinks bought for him. That's just how it was over there before the bombs dropped; it was nice when there was money coming in, but once you stripped the idea that they were doing good for themselves, I'd say they were meaner and lower then Equestrians because it wasn't as if they could just walk a few miles somewhere else and make a new start for themselves. There was still good money, but I'd never want to go to Prance or Sydneigh ever again unless my sister needed to."

    Anyways the others sent me to try and round you up. They're wanting to get the show on the road and head off. Moonshadow said.

    Viridia nodded thoughtfully at Fan Knife's explanation, then blinked at Moonshadow's words. "Right, we were just heading back anyway."

    Cool. Moonshadow said, yawning. So what is this place anyways? Shade's direct passage to Tartarus?

    "No idea. There was a magical barrier that I could just...push aside, and then we found some crystals, and we took the crystals, and now we're leaving with the crystals." Viridia shrugged. "I didn't mess around with much of Shade's stuff, because I didn't want to get hexed or something."

    "Hello, Ms. Madeleine." Choro waves a hoof to the AI, smiling at her and pondering if she could help with her activities, before turning back to the others. Mirror's look makes the little mage's stomach churn a little. She's... still not happy with her. And she has every right to be beyond furious still. But she's already apologized and repeating that won't do much good. As such Choro just... deflates a little, looking once again more somber and contrite.

    "Just two. But would anypony from the town notice us out here?" Choro asks, honestly unsure on the matter. "We're not that close. I'd have assumed anyone attacking us now could be pretty anonymous about it."

    "Okay."

    The little mage sounds reluctant. Back in the Stable, sending someone PipBuck messages in rapid succession was regarded as a faux pas, and quite infuriating. Still, she's only sent one, and even that was more indirect than anything. Just... keep it brief. She taps out "Found them?" in short order, and sends that off towards Moonshadow's device. Now they just have to wait.

    Huh. Cool. But if you didn't intend to steal Shade's stuff, why did you break in, in the first place? Don't get me wrong, I'm not disapproving, after all someone who is delusional enough to worship one of Luna's failures probably shouldn't be owning any sort of dangerous artifact either.

    Yes. On way back. Moonshadow sent back quickly.

    "No, no, it's okay. I'm... okay. Just.."

    Before Choro can say anything more, her PipBuck beeps. The little wizard glances down, then smiles. "They're all together. They'll be here soon." She can't quite hide a sigh of relief at the prospect. After all this talk of assassins, it'll be nice to be in the air again.

    The noises that followed from within the cardboard box were... crunchy.

    "Do you want to burn this place down, then?"

I mean, if your enemy learns that you were here, then they probably have a lot of ways to get back at you."

    As the two pegasi soon approached the mouth of the cavern; nothing appeared to be in their way. The black curtain that was there before had seemed to have vanished, however, leaving a simple path out of the stone room.

    Madeleine nodded back and smiled at Choro.

    A small thumk came from a corner of the bus; it appeared that Madeleine, with her legs tucked under her body, had decided to fall asleep with her head lying on the ground. Mirror continued to look at the AI like she was expecting for someone to either help her or, at the very least, say something.

    Choro found that she was suddenly being assaulted by a large, shaggy, happy carpet that happened to be roughly dog-shaped. The big lug, after licking her face again, immediately decided to settle down next to her and curl it's body around her, which mostly meant that Choro was suddenly enveloped in a large, warm mass of dog.

    "Uh, no? There are foals here, Fan Knife. And, I don't care. What's she gonna do, get pissy that I walked through her room to steal from somepony else?" Viridia snorted.

    "Ah good, Moony came through. Well, if something's botherin' you, C, don't hold it in." Doc smirks when Butch assaults Choro in licks and a dog hug. Good dog.

    The crunching causes Doc's ears to lift up straight. He looks down at the roaches, then over to Mirror. "Those are the magic roaches I mentioned. They'll eat anything you give 'em, but they're gentle critters."

    He gets up and rolls a pair of old shirts together to make a pillow for Maddie. Doc gently tucks her in and then sits back down to explain it to Mirror. "That's Madeleine. She's a... well we call it an Artificial Intelligence. Like a machine that can think for herself. This is her first time being a pony, so she has no clue how anything works in our culture. We meet a lot of strange creatures in our adventures."

    Exactly. Besides, while I wouldn't mind stealing from her, I don't think she's done anything to deserve death. Moonshadow added, before falling silent now that they were back in her home proper.
