Wondering through through the Changeling lands at night on the road between Bales and Whinnyapolis, Onyx, Brie, and Spark have stumbled upon a set of farm ponies trying to hide their cattle in the forest, away from their changeling occupiers. While rescuing a cow, Onyx and Brie have taken heavy damage, and so they followed them to the cabin of a local woodspony. But they found the woodspony and a farmer replaced by changelings, and after a skirmish are alone and wounded in the cabin in the woods.
Over in Baltimare, Dark Star has decided to give up his life as Dark Star, the Earth Pony farm colt, to become Tyrel Jackson, or "Gold Chains," a zebra and aspiring rap artist. Through the magic of Valmorification, it is possible. Iron is freaking out after possibly having received a message from God herself. That, and his usual social awkwardness. Silver is cashing out on a long standing set of projects, and is readying himself for the next phase
Gentlemen. Gentlemen! There will be plenty of damage for both options to be viable
"The Last Bat i met was, how can i put this nicely? a few wheat bales short of a harvest.">>110831
Dark Star looks at him with a confused look on his face.
"I do some healing myself actually, though I'd prefer if the ponies I was protecting never got hit at all.">>110844
"Oh, one of those bats. Yeah, there's a few with some loose gears flying around."
>>110843I hope so. Cauldron needs the money to help her escape/make her impervious to getting jailed.>>110845
"Well, if you need a backup, there is a good potion master I can fetch potions for. A bit pricey but they are guaranteed to work better than most others."
Dark Star rewording his statement seems to help. He just was worried about manners.>>110845
"That would be most helpful. I hope we might avoid such situations where it is necessary, but if it is, let us hope that I will be only pony you will need to heal tonight."
"We can pray that that will be the case."
She smiles, obviously finding herself in good company.
“Well if we are getting shot at or stabbed, then something has probably gone wrong”
The unicorn shares in her smile, and even offers her a hoofshake. "The name is Silver Sword. It is pleasure to meet you."
Iron is confused.
"So do I need the armor?"
“Maybe something lighter, if you gave the time. Or maybe not”
"So is there a need for potions at all, then?"
“You just asked about armor
"Good to know">>110855
"It's a pleasure to meet you Silver, I don't know if you heard but I'm Midnight Lily">>110860
"They might be useful if I cannot use my healing magic."
He extends his hoof
"My name is Dark Star. im not actually a zigger."
"I heard, but thank you. It is nice to have another member of team, especially one as well-mannered as yourself.">>110860
"We might need some, but there are others we could make use of she might have access to. Potions to hide our tracks, make us invisible, or even make us temporarily smaller."
Iron deadpans at Skies.
"If armor is involved, it means getting hurt. Potions are relevant when getting hurt, too.">>110862
He turns to the batmare, smiling.
"Excellent. What sort of potions are you into: Many small ones or less of them with more healing potential?">>110865
He nods at Silver's suggestions.
"I think I have an idea of what they could cost, depending on the item offered. Any specific number of them?"
"You just… Look like… One?"
He giggles a bit before shaking his hoof as well>>110865
"Oh! Well, thank you. That's nice of you to say.">>110866
"Potions aren't my specialty…. What would you say?"
"We should have at least enough for everypony to have two, if she can fill that kind of order."
“Ask your questions, but don’t act as if you’ve been asking the sane question again and again when you switch betweenness sentences”
Iron is confused.
Iron jots it down mentally.
"You mean two of everything, even healing potions, or do you prefer some more in that category?">>110867
"Silver, me and maybe you can take quite a beating, so I would recommend stronger potions for the three of us. Skies and Star can go for the lower end of potions since they should be less exposed to weaponsfire. Any number in particular you would wish to take? I suggest 3, just to ensure you never run out in the mission for a modest sum of 900 bits for the 3 pack. Sounds right to you? Less potent potions are 50 bits for each, but they heal less each."
"i had my coat dyed at a spa. its a really nice place."
"you should use the sauna there."
Her eyes almost burst from her head upon hearing the price
"I h-have 50 bits…">>110871
"Maybe I'll check it out some time. Thank you"
Iron nods, smiling.
"Oh do not worry. This is a group mission so we are going to help eachother out when paying, of course. Silver and Star should have some to help you out."
But he nods.
"Of course, it is your choice how much do you want to spend for safety. It is merely scouting after all."
"Two potions we would use to hide, per pony. I do not know about healing potions, exactly, but it sounds like you have that figured out.">>110873
"Hmm. Well, we will see what it all costs when we arrive. I might be able to cover cost of your potions for you. It does us no good if one of us is less effective in mission due to lack of supplies."
"I'll consider it, but thank you for the offer."
He whispers backI've seen them around before. but i've never really talked to many."
"I would wager those would cost 300 bits each to make you invisible, but I am not sure if her repertoire includes it. The potions to make somepony small sound a bit easier to do, so I think it is 250 bits each."
He looks a bit giddy.
"So you want to go for 3 moderately strong potions then. Good to know.">>110869>>110871
He turns to the couple.
"Is this well for both of you? Same amount of less potent potions or do you want to get more out of the magic? Maybe more of the less powerful ones? Name it and I shall fetch it.">>110878
He looks a bit confused.
"Does that mean you will buy some? Keep in mind you can customize your order to take out things you deem unnecessary. No need to be shy. It is to help ensure the sucess of our mission."
Silver whispers to Midnight: "He is coltfriend to potionmaker. He has been acting like salespony all night, to drum up business for her."
She whispers back "Oh, I see">>110880
"Maaaaybe, like I said, I don't have very many bits…"
"Sounds fine to me."
She shakes her head
“I’ll go in dry”
Iron shakes his head, smiling.
"It is important for all to be safe and equipped. A mission can fail for even the tiniest of mistakes. I suppose you do not want that to happen, do you? Keep in mind, the others are always eager to help a fellow companion out. No strings attached. No need to be repaid in any alloted amount of time at all.">>110883
He looks at Skies.
"Are you sure you do not want at least some health potions in case you get shot? They are merely 50 bits each, which should heal most of your health in your case as insurance. Simply one would be enough in your case, due to your dexterous nature."
"Can She Make potions that will let me breathe fire?"
Iron shakes his head.
"Not that I can think of, sadly. There is one that makes you temporarily have a tree coat for extra defense without weight penalty if you want it, but you should be fine with Silver's suggestion."
Silver suddenly lets out a laugh. "You could always just use bottle of strong alcohol and lighter."
Dark Star puts his hoof to his hin in thought
"that might work."
"I suppose that can work, too."
Meanwhile, calculations are made.
(So 3 sets of 2 potions of Invisibility 600*3
, 2 Pass without Trace [100*3 and 2 Shrink Person 600*3
, as well as 2 sets of 3 Cure Moderate Wounds 900*2
and 3 Cure Light Wounds for Star 150
. Deduct my buying and Cauldron would get… 2450 bits from the others. Decent numbers.)
He nods to himself.
(We'll see if the others maybe go for a little more.)
thats quite a bitmaybe she'll touch the peen

>>110894After what I assume Iron confessed to her, this could help him a lot in actually getting his words out without fear of rejection.>>110882>>110884
He looks at the other two ponies who haven't decided on buying anything.
"Alright. I have most of the orders ready. Are you absolutely sure you do not want anything at all? Every potion count to increase our chances of a successful mission."
