Occupied Equestria is an RP campaign set in a post-Equestria Equestria, where the princesses are gone, as are the Elements of Harmony. Gone, temporarily at least, but not by any means forgotten.

New players are welcome.

Fantasy Play has a few "kitties" to cuddle with
Brie has a Changeling Queen to negotiate with
Iron has some gangsters to beat
Silver has some follow up to do
Amber is exploring her new home
Spark is either looking for forest demons, or negotiating the fate of a tribe of Wolves
Midnight has more cultists to kill
Onyx has a colt to look after
Dark Star has some communists to kill

The ceiling is white, and meets a tiered yellow molding where it meets the walls. Several portraits hang from the walls, one of which at least is familiar. Entering into the new room - it looks like a state room, with dark wood shelves with books and fine china, and a blue ceiling that similarly meets the walls with a tiered, white molding.

The mare spots her before she closes the distance.

"Oh. Yes. Well, this place was built for Joseph Curwhinny in 761 and expanded for his family, built in the Georgian style. It was used afterwards by Tall Sails and his family, and then passed on from generations down. Around the turn of last century the family moved away from it starting with Wispy Wind, but it stayed in the family. It was damaged pretty hard in the Hurricane of '64, but survived as it was built ontop of a higher rocky outcropping than most of the buildings at the time. After renovations it was opened to the public back in 02."

"Well...." She looks away to the right, and a bit down to the ground.
"There was a built-in cupboard in the upstairs colt's room that was made a false back to hide in, at least for the colt. As for other secret passages... well, when they were renovating after the Hurricane, and moving much of the house higher so it would be above the waterline, and in-line with the new city regulations, well... they found some open spaces and a couple ladders... spaces between walls that were a little bigger than normal, maybe hidden rooms. As for ghost stories, I am not sure if there are many mansions as old as these that don't have those. There's an especially well known incident back in 894 where the Earl of Sunny Shores stayed for the night in the seaside guest room and ran screaming outside in the early morning. But it is, after all, just stories and rumors."

Uh... I guess when i stop and think about the room, I am probably projecting a room in a house owned by a professor I had in law school that he would sometimes host classes in. That room was probably technically a "library." I may also have been thinking of the Hearst Manor which I visited as a child. The room wouldn't be Victorian, but an older style. Georgian era. Think of a room the purpose of which is to receive guests from the foyer, but isn't the primary library or living room. Maybe something like a smoke room, or a writing room...

The guide takes her through a hardwood door frame nearer the end of the room that enters into a hallway with a clock on the side, a statue that seems to be a smaller model of the statue to victory in the Canterlot gardens. They pass along a very long rug covered in purple and orange dyes with designs of unicorns and other creatures, towards an open door at the end of the hall. Through open doorways, Amber can see what must be grand living rooms, a hall leading to some other stairway, and the edges of a dining table. At last, at the end of the hallway, they enter through a doorway that opens to what must be a room taking up much, perhaps all, of the smaller rectangle that attaches to the side of the main rectangular structure of the building. There are grand book shelves, small moving ladders, and a table or two beneath the high ceiling of the room

It seems to be, at least. The ceiling seems to the roof level, or near enough to it. Though there are no skylights, there are large paneled windows extending up perhaps 18 feet, and grand bookshelves, with even a second level on each end. Amber can't read the book binds at this distance, but she can see brown leather binds, green cloth binds, tan colors, white, yellow, and red. Some binds are used and bent, some brand new. Some books are small, and some are massive. It's not as big as the public library in the town center, but it is as big as a wing of the same, and there is more decoration on the ceiling and wood paneling.

More windows in the walls than in pic related

"How could they provide us, exactly? We need ammunition, mortars, medicine, or best of all peace with the Doubles."

"They can provide all but the last one. That last one is up to me and my friends. Wars don't end overnight. It will take some time. I think you will find the supplies worth it in the meanwhile."

He pauses for a moment. An ear twitches, and he lowers his head

"It's worth considering... But I am still not sure I trust you, or ponies generally for that matter. I need to get back to patrol."

"I think you will find ponies more trustworthy than changelings, and a better source of supplies for that matter."

"I think I need to go back to Miskobag for lessons. I do not think he will be able to teach me much longer."

Spark turns around.
"Oh. I'm sorry to hear that. Will he want to be alone, or may I come listen in?"

"It is with me. For now, probably not. Mediwin rites are secret."

"Perhaps if you earn his trust - our trust - he may teach you something. The rights of the mediwin are secret even to the Ma'iingan... but he may be willing to teach you something yet"

"For the mediwin? That has never happened. But few wolves become mediwin. Trust for Harmony.... There have been many ponies through this land, and for a long time. Travellers, adventurers, merchants, outdoors ponies... According to legend there was even a great pony sorcerer who used magic to control the lands, and invaded ours with his troops. It was brutal, until he retreated and was sucked into his own creation. All of this before my time. But I do remember an occasion when I was younger. Not that many years ago..."
