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 lock breaks right open, opening the box to the inside.

Silver sees its contents: jewelry

There’s a golden chain necklace, a stop watch. A wedding bracelet fit for a pony. A heart locket. Several earrings.

I would have expected that response from Sven, but not from you

"Well, yes. At the University of Baltimare, or James Haykins. There are many young mares your age, and many stallions too."

The hide is easily rolled up. Carrying the meat is just a little harder, but it can be placed across the back

"Sure."
Mala carries much of the meat himself

The area is too urban and developed to have to deal with Manticore or Hydras... probably. Snakes and bees... that's another story. They make it across the water by wading through it, and through to the dirt road on the other side of the brush, which connects with Sicamore street

>>132418
"Oh of course. Over on the other side of here is the writing room"
She takes her across the hallway, and into a room that connects to the library, with a grand chair, a hardwood and leather-topped desk, a couple book shelves, a globe, and walls covered in nautical maps of the world.

She takes her further down the hall to the far end, opening into a room. This one has a high ceiling, wooden floors, a grand piano, and a fireplace a phonograph and a radio. Part of the floor is lower than the remainder, accessed by a small stairs, and this large open area is covered in wood and looks like it is intended as a dance floor. It's maybe half the width of the stateroom, but the same length. Likewise, it has a view out to the bay, especially of a small boat house.

“Well, yes. It’s all a part of being a socialite; you often receive guests from elsewhere in Baltimare or all around Equestria. However, generally guests would first come into the parlor room, or the great state room. They wouldn’t generally make their way to this room until they had been... loosen up with wine, or gin. Once they are here, that is when musical revelry begins.”

"Of course. All of the spirits may help in healing through the inter-connectivity of nature. Believe me, we've tried."
She closes her eyes, and lowers her head. She remains silent in that position for some seconds, and then opens her eyes and resumes speaking. Her eyes look down, and her head remains down.

"We've done every ritual. Prayer, dance. We've burned the tobacco, the sage, cedar, and sweetgrass. Breathed in the fumes, and nothing has healed him so far."
She looks up to spark now, with a couple small tears coming from her golden eyes

The shuttle shakes and tremble. Fantasy Play's hooves hold the steering wheel firmly as her eyes stare at the black hole in space sucking everything towards her.

The buzzing of static is heard and then a voice.

"Fantasy! Fantasy! Fantasy! Do you copy?" a feminine voice.

Fantasy's lips turn downwards adn her eyebrows form a roof.

"I'm here, Amber," she whisper back.

"Where are you? Are you still at the station? The reality breaker is gone. Y-you don't have it do you? Please, say you don't," the voiced quaked on the other end.

A tear ran down Fantasy's eye and made her cheek glistened and she smiled.

"Heh, nothing goes by you unotice, does it, Amber?"

"This is no laughing matter? Where are you right now?"

"Well, near our great galaxy's center. Andromeda's black hole."

"What?! No. Please... W-we can still fix this. I'm sure there's something else we can do about the reality breaker. Just- Just- Just. Come back."

Fantasy grinned.

"Tell the others that I regret not spending more time with them. I'm sure we would have lots of fun and I'm sure we will in ponyheaven."

"Please, Fantasy!"

"Thanks you for your support Amber. Your enthusiastic autistic ramblings about dnd in ponyland always managed to cheer me up." She wiped away one of her tears with her hoof.

"Don't-"

Amber's vocie was cut off as Fantasy turn the volume wheel down on the radio.

"This is Sargent Fantasy Play signing off one last time," she said and shut off the radio.

Warning! Incomming special reductions. Level:Deadly.

She brought together her hooves in a paryer.

GM, I'm sorry about not playing when you took so much effort in including me.

The shuttle boomed and Fantasy was shaken in her cockpit like there was an earthquake. She saw how the tip of her space shuttle got elongated into a line straight into the blackness ahead of her.

She grinned a melancholic smile.

"Oy vey." she could feel her face and hoof getting pulled towards the abyss in fornt of her. "It's like another shoah."

Then her ship disappeared in the darkness.

One of these days I'll play again.

Chipperwill takes Silver down the dirt driveway, past a barren limbed tree, around grass, and to a pickup truck parked in the dirt and gravel next to a raised 1 story tin-roofed ranch house. The truck's red paint is starting to chip and is covered in dirt; the wheels in mud. These are the only blemishes on an otherwise excellent looking pick up truck.

Mala hops up into the bed, evidently having done this before. Keeping the meat on a clean surface is a little challenging, but at least it can be washed off later. There's some dirt and especially dead leaves in the bed. Chipper Will pulls the choke, and starts up the engine.

Mala tried to force aside items in the freezer, although it’s packed in pretty tight. Mala moves aside fish and tries to pack it in
“My stomach could fit half of this...” Mala remarks.

At the very least, most can directly fit into the freezer, although cooking at least some of it or the fish that night might be necessary. The refrigerator has plenty of room.

They walk into the forest, deeper. Sometimes brush obscures the passage, sometimes it is clear. The pine trees are tall and dense, but the morning sun shines through in most areas. Waabashki occassionally stops, looks through the canopy, or holds her nose to the ground and sniffs, before pointing and leading the way. Makade stays behind, to the side, or further ahead. He has a faster walking pace, and so quickly moves from point to point. He stops to look at tracks more than once, or will say something in the language of the wolves that gets Waabishki to stop, while he lays down, and looks through the scope of his rifle at something more distant. He also stops not long after their trip began to sit down, and howl lowdly into the sky. The howl is replied to by another wolf further north, and they continue on their way.

Eventually the pony and wolves come to a clearing with a lake that reflects the sky. Waabishki says to spark "here it is" Then with one of her long, untrimmed claws extending from the end of her paw, she point out what looks like a hill, or almost like a hill, on the other end of the lake, past the edge.

Mala stands up and jumps off the bed, coming beside Silver
“Yes. I am ready.”

Silver nods, and leads the way back into the common area. He waves the Khoi and Jubilosa.

"We are heading out again to get some shopping done. Do either of you need anything?"

Khoi:
“Maybe some mane ties”

Jubilosa
“We don’t have a TV here. Do we need a TV? I don’t know. Maybe some more wine or alcohol. Well... I guess we are fine as we are.”

Silver nods at both of their requests, silently wonders to himself "What is TV?", then heads out. He hooks himself up to his smaller cart, and heads first for a store where he can get saddlebags.

TV in this era was extremely uncommon particularly with wartime shortages and in our timeline didn't become common until the late 40's at the earliest (https://www.nyu.edu/classes/stephens/History%20of%20Television%20page.htm). Jubilosa asking this question is equivalent to a modern-day poor immigrant who just escaped human trafficking asking "Do we need a VR setup?"

I hope we can continue tomorrow! Silver is so close to being set up and ready to move onto the next adventure.

Jubilosa is asking about televisions and expensive alcohol because she is materialistic, hedonistic, looking forward an escape from negative emotions and generally thinks that she has a real chance at living the high life through means of a sugar daddy. Televisions have been described in rooms twice before. Once in the master bedroom apartment of Comte Burgher - a prominent politician living in a gated community, and in Maakie’s apartment in Hoebuck. That latter apartment and connected offices also included a full jacuzzi, a coat made out of the hide of a pony, a magically enchanted naval officer’s saber, a taxidermied manticore, a love potion and thousands in cash and diamond, and a slave. If a television is rare, unusual, or fantastical, it’s hardly the only fantastical or rare item in that apartment. The beachfront stilt house in Cherry Hill is a two story, prime location, three bedroom home that has a stuffed leopard, another taxidermied specimen of a then-extinct animal, a boat (admittedly basically just a stolen lifeboat), a phonograph, but not a television. Black Cauldron’s apartment, Blue Skies hotel room, the hotel room suite at Hotel Indigo, the cabin in the woods, and the ranch house Maakie was left in, all lack televisions. They are rare here. Yes, Jubilosa is basically asking for a VR-set after being rescued. She’s pushing her luck with her sugar daddy, and she’s pushing it so hard she retracts the question almost immediately after she asks it. That’s just who she is.

It's confirmed, Silver is Jubilosa's sugar daddy.
