Set six years after season 6, Occupied Equestria presents an alternative history where the Changelings have conquered half of Equestria, while a former Equestrian colony - soured to Princess Twilight's notion of harmony with all creatures because of their encounters with griffins - Invaded and took the other half. In Baltimare and the Equestrian Southeast, the magic of friendship has weakened, as Communists, Changeling infiltrators, Fascists, gangs, and corrupt creepy politicians threaten the city. This role play is based in large part upon the Equestria at War mod for Hearts of Iron 4, and uses D&d 3.5e mechanics
Dark Star and Silver are preparing a task for the Civil Administration. Iron is drowning in a Lake. Brie has just gotten approval to speak with a Changeling agent about acting as a collaborator, and Spark is petting the weird cat things.

"Wow,you look even more gorgeous than usual"
He Smiles at her
"Your Mane looks fantastic.">>108888>pic
Onyx suddenly raises his halberd again, not liking this situation at all.
Spark stands ready for action.
"Dawson... please. We got an injured pony here. Just let us be on our way."
“D’aww” she blushes>>108895>>108897
Ruby looks over at Dawson
“Dawson? Hey! Did you get a new rifle?”
Another pony sulks out from the back. It’s the red wine colored Earth pony
“Brother! We found Betsy!”
Ruby runs forth, and towards Red Wine>>108896
What? What’s his action?
"Ruby... Get back... Now"
Onyx holds his halberd ready to strike
"I don't think these are the ponies you know"
Spark pulls out his pistol.
I want to know about that comment you placed on this post and what does it mean. You almost gave me a stroke, man. I thought it was actually nightfall and Cauldron had to make a nightshift or something.I think you already implied it's morning, but the statement needs some clarification, or else Iron may trap himself even more than he's already doing.
In any case, current action still is >>108882
[1d2 = 1]>>108901
Cauldron’s already missed her shift. Is Iron standing up deliberately to show of an erect penis?
>>108902Oh. So it was taken. For some reason I thought it wasn't.
Just change his standing up for a simple going to a prone position similar to the last time he did something very embarrassing to a nun.Wait a sec, does she know she lost her shift?
Ruby runs off “Brother! There you are!”
As he is running over to apparently hug his brother, he hears onyx and Spark, and looks back, then prances forth once more. Red wine comes closer until he is right in front of Ruby. As Ruby is about to hug him, a flash of green fire comes over Redwine... a Changeling is left behind, with big blue eyes, black chitin, and a tattered grey military field uniform that looks strangely dirty.
Ruby looks as if he wants to scream, but he is stopped by a trail of magical purple light, going from him into the mouth of the Changeling, then also into the mouth of ‘Dawson.’ Ruby is fatigued before their eyes, before he falls to the ground.
You should probably roll initiative>>108903
The two parasites are quick to act, both pulling out rifles of a wooden color Spark and Onyx don’t normally see on Equestrian rifles. “Dawson” likewise shifts into a Changeling with a military helmet, and tattered winter uniform.
[1d20+8 = 28]>>108911
"Oh you know it"
An extremely pissed rock then charges at 'Red Wine' as all onyx can see is red.
-5 for power attack.
The shot hits the creature, and sends a set of blue blood scattered across the snow.
He’s not out though, and remains standing, rifle forward>>108913
Roll to confirm
[1d6 = 2][1d10+16 = 17]>>108917
My crit modifier is x3...
Make of that what you will.
+10 for power attack.
He Walks to the Counter and pays for the visit.
He Then Walks to Front Door, He Holds the door open so she can walk out.
He Hails a taxi and tells him to go to the east side tavern.
[1d20+5 = 22]>>108918
Onyx sallies Firth, levels his halberd at the further away Changeling, and skewers it right through its gut, pushing it back a couple feat, and leaving blue blood on the snow. The halberd goes straight through to the other side. A purple mist dissipates out of the wound in its torso... Onyx must have cut open it’s stomach. The creature whimpers in pain, then falls unconscious.
But onyx isn’t the only one there... the Changeling with the helmet, ‘Dawson’ is right beside him, aims his rifle, and shoots at Onyx
[2d8 = 3]>>108920
“200 bits” they say
Yes, Skies did use that much
They take him there to the tavern, along with Skies, who seems happy to have a companion
A bullet grazes over the top of onyx’s shoulder, rolling flesh, but not doing too much harm
"Ahgh, son of a bitch those things hurt"
Onyx is now at 10hp
It’s Spark’s turn. ‘Dawson,” though wounded, is still in action, and he looks pissed
[1d20 = 9]>>108927
So is Spark. He fires again.
Onyx’s turn. I hope there’s a weapon on the back side of that halberd
[1d20+13 = 33]>>108932
Onyx Rios the weapon out of the dead one's gut and swings at the other.
He Pays the bits.
He Walks to the taxi after he pays. he get's in.
he Says to her
"200 bits huh? It was worth it."
He smiles at her lovingly.
........................................................................................... Roll damage
She smiles back at him, warmly
“If you cuddle up with me, maybe you’ll be able to feel it yourself
The taxi drives them back to the Eastside Tavern>>108940
The changeling had been in many a battle before. Trenches outside Acornage. The mud that ate tanks outside the shire. The last push into North Equestria and the Crystal Empire. He faced his last battle that night.
Onyx’s halberd goes forth, deep, into the skull of the Changeling, sending it’s its lower jaw down, and splitting its head in half like it were a water melon, with green, blue, and grey fluids pulling out onto the snow to join with the blue blood left there from Spark’s bullet.
Both changelings are dead, their bodies tattered like their field grey army uniforms
Onyx pulls his halberd out of the bug and stabs it in the ground to lean on
"Go to Tartarus you demons"
She is confused
His halberd is covered it what seems to be several distinct fluids. Blood, crushed Changeling flesh, and even the contents of one of the parasite’s stomachs>>108945
Non-responsive. He’s out
Spark rushes over to help the colt. He checks his vitals.
"Get the colt inside. He'll need about as much rest as me"
Onyx grabs the halberd and slowly makes his way to the cabin.
He seems to be alive, but has a slow heart beat, and a slow breath>>108948
The cabin, when the door is opened, has a living room with bare furniture - just a couch - and a fire place where wood is burning. In the same room is a stove for a kitchen. Off in another room is beds in a simple bunk
Iron dramatically covers his forehead.
"I know. You must think of me as despicable for what you can obviously infer about my secret."
He moves its forelegs in front of him, hoof pointing forward.
"Go to your shift, for your answers shall be answered."
"He'll need the bed more than I..."
Onyx lays himself on the sofa, fighting back his heavy eyelids
Spark hauls him inside.
"He is really weak. I hope we can help him in this state."
"We should be able too, I'm just not sure how except rest"
He scoots next to her and puts an arm around her.
"I've been thinking about buying a car."
"It'd probably save me money in the long run."
He is still not up yet. It’s quiet>>108954
“It just might”
"What Color do you think i should get? i was thinking black."
"Maybe black with some blue trim would look nice."
He puts his hoof to his chin in thought.
Gotta sleep. Night, guys.

I’ve had a decent morning
And holy hell, that was quite a night last night. First, both Spark and Onyx rolled higher on their initiative than the other two. Then Spark hit with a pistol, and got two 6’s on a 2d6. Then Onyx had a bar 20 and crit with a power attack his first attack. Then he did it to the second one, while getting a minimum of damage on his own wound. Just, damn
My big dilemma right now is whether I should start a new thread at the next thousand since this thread will have 1400 posts or less
Sounds like quite the morning
Huh. That's quite the morning.
Yeah, that's Onyx for you. The Brie zone only empowers him.
Sounds like a crazy morning to me. And I'd have to agree, it's like Spark and Onyx got energized by righteous fury. I hope the real Dawson and Red Wine are alive and nearby, and not on their way to a pair of changeling pods. I feel bad for Ruby.I'd say go for it, since it will be a while until the next 1,000 post milestone.
Righteous fury, and a desire to be an exterminator.
>>108969>and a desire to be an exterminator
Perhaps they need to invest in some...Zyklon B.
OH MY GOD IS THAT ONYX
If it is, Onyx was last in the cabin with Spark and Ruby, who is unconscious. The fire is going, Onyx is on a couch, and no other ponies have been seen
Well that was anti-climatic.
Um, I want to know what was the response Cauldron gave that you sent me a bunch of empty space.
"You could," she says
They arrive at the tavern>>108970
Glass Horizon tells Silver
"Well, if you uh... come to the bank, we could cash out a thousand or so in gold pieces">>108976
There was supposed to be a picture attached but those don't stick when posting from phone.
Cauldron is extremely confused and slightly frightened by the display of... whatever it is before her
Iron can't help but sweat where nopony could sweat before.
(I must withdraw now!)
"Oh! I just remembered I had a pony meeting about... hoofs! Yeah! I will see you later!"
With that, he gallops off away from her with no clear direction.
Silver nods. "I can do that."
Onyx slowly gets up, and rummages around the cabin for any medical supplies.
A simple first aid kit, and a bottle of vodka half empty
Onyx takes a swig before stepping in some type of tub or shower that the cabin has and splashing some on his scratched up back.
Onyx discovers that little cabins deep in the woods do not have the indoor plumbing that big cities or even farming hamlets have. It is also below freezing outside
What? Not even a washtub?
He opens the door and steps out then he helps blue out.
He walks up to the passenger side window and pays the cabby
