10/22/2021 Cantermore Sleeps
Players: Nightstalker, Rosie Sunshine, Strawberry Milk, Toot Sweet

  • More ponies have been affected by the sleeping curse, but somepony who names himself "Giddy Gimble" claims to have found a cure and asks the group to come to the University.
  • Nightstalker is early and already waits on the other end of the fountain plaza. Strawberry, Toot and Rosie come later and now find the plaza blocked by sleeping ponies. They go around them, meet up with Night and go to the  University campus.
  • At the University campus, they find more sleeping ponies, strangely lined up neatly.
  • A sleeping pegasus lands in front of Night and introduces himself as Giddy Gimble. Night questions this, but he doesn't answer her question.
  • The sleeping ponies rise up into the air and whirl around the group. After having trapped the group together, they drive them back to back and try to pull Toot out, but Toot can be saved.
  • Night takes the others with them and they flee to Eq.U.I.S. headquarters, the sleeping mob on their tails.
  • The mob tries to enter the building while Strawberry frantically orders them around to improve the shield.
  • The mob pulls out Toot again. Damaged from the first time, she turns into a  sleeper, too. She then hugs Rosie and Rosie also turns into a sleeper.
  • Strawberry casts a strong spell to improve the shields, but it turns out to be a very bright light instead, which wakes up all the sleepers. Most of them are confused and disperse.
  • At the other end of the street, they see a well-dressed cat applauding their  efforts. When Strawberry threatens him with a sword and Night angrily asks him who he is, he says he's "just the host of the World of Dreams".
The Sleeping (ongoing)

Players: cira, Farsight, Lemon Grass, Nightstalker, Rocky Slides, Rusty Pipe Organ

  • In the last three days, random items have been disappearing. There is no connection between the items and they seem to be of varying value. Since this morning, ponies have been missing, too.
  • They are six ponies from various backgrounds, again with no obvious connection. The only clue is a wagon trail leading to the Evershade Forest.
  • Both volunteers and guards have been recruited to search for the missing ponies.
  • The group finds the missing cart. A giant tree creature, a shambler, is
  • currently eating it, but leaves the metal parts alone.
  • They find a broken box and a claw marks.
  • In a clearing, they find diamond dogs barking at large piles of random items. On closer inspection, the missing ponies are sleeping on top of the piles.
  • Upon being asked, the dogs tell them that the ponies brought the stuff, piled it up and slept on it and forest creatures are getting sleepy, too. They also told the ponies to go away and take the piles and sleeping ponies with them.
  • The piles are sturdy and can easily be climbed. As they carry the ponies away from the piles, they wake up. But they cannot remember anything, especially not bringing the items there.
  • Farsight finds that the items are slightly enchanted, but together, the magic amplifies. It seems to have controlled the ponies bringing all the stuff there, but it is yet unknown who would need it. The aura of the piles seems to have pointy ears.

  • Far tells that the voice knew he was getting coffee, Night concludes that the  owner of the voice must see everything that is going on.

  • Strawberry goes to the center of the crowd, where the spell is the strongest and notices that the sleeping ponies also have an aura with cat ears and that they are connected.
  • Strawberry assumes that the spell can spread easier when the affected ponies
  • are close to each other.

Players: Azure Gloom, Mint Medley, Rusty Pipe Organ, Strawberry Milk, Tale Spinner

  • Light has disappeared from Cantermore. The ponies who remember the Shadow army get in mild panic.
  • The group finds that the lanterns are destroyed. They have large claw marks on it and the group finds footprints of matching size. They are very far apart.
  • Mint finds that the grass between the toes is also pressed down, so he assumes it is an aquatic or amphibious creature. Azure agrees.
  • The group follows the trail of destruction. Luckily, because this creature breaks lanterns and other sources of light, it leaves behind a trail that gives them a general idea of their whereabouts. The crashing noises also help.
  • After the creature destroyed a lantern mounted to a house in an alley, Azure conjures a light ball, which the creature also steals, as well as his ability to cast light spells.
  • The creature is a giant frog that makes loud crashes as it jumps over the rooftops and gives off flashes of its stolen light.

  • Tale comments on how odd it is that nopony has ever discovered the frog before, given how bright and flashy it is.

  • After they have defeated the minotaur, they meet the final room of choices. The inscription above the doors simply says "valor".
  • The room is a burial chamber. It has a radiant bow and a giant ship. Sunlight examines the bow. Emerald excitedly claps her hooves. Azure explains that the pony lying in the sarcophagus must be a big hero for the Pre-Equestrians.

  • Mint distracts the slime with Emerald's perfume.
  • Mint explains that the effect comes from a mix of whatever affected this agent and the after-effect of the teleporting and the effect of 4516.

Its the fourth anniversary of the Sweet and Elite roleplay!

Thanks to Toot Sweet and Nightstalker for once again having hosted the majority of sessions, providing us with plot, fun and the opportunity to regularly meet every Friday for this event! Thank you for taking time and effort to think up scenarios that would be fun to play for us.

Also a shoutout to Fancy Frosting who started both the Meet and Greet and Hide and Seek, but who unfortunately doesn't take part in it anymore. After this, Toot has taken care to continue the roleplaying event and Optic Rainfall has taken care of the Hide and Seek.

This year I would like to thank Strawberry Milk for having hosted the session on July 9.
