It is a snowy day, and the last day's excitement is mostly forgotten by the public(somehow). Most of the group returns to the University as Oricalchum finetunes the device, while Night prepares to interrogate the Pegasus, Miss Blue(really Blue Moon), with Farsight and private detective Sona Pona taking notes
Night manages to get the name of the group:Encounter-Secure-Protect. As well as the description of the entrance room, the way the amulets work, the fact that the place is underground, etc.
Meanwhile, Cinnamon absolutely nerds out and helps Oricalchum and Radiant Shores finetune the device
Sun and Scatty help as well by placing reflector shards, and Neb brings his 'friend' cookies.
Meanwhile Fire wanders away from the group not knowing what to do and finds a very strange place at the University
Players: Toot Sweet, Gabbro Ilmenite, Brilliant Dawn, Scatty Clockwork, Fireblaster, Hot Lemon, Nebenfigur, Cinnamon String, Dazzle Blaze, Farsight, Tale Spinner
It is a peaceful day, and the sun is out. The group is at the University to meet Oricalchum, who is completing the Shard Radar.
Instead they meet Brilliant Dawn, Oricalchum's assistant, who tells them the professor isn't done yet.
Suddenly, weird things start appearing. Giant beanstalk, evil puppets, a giant goose.
Tale leads the goose to the beanstalk with food.
Farsight bashes the puppet apart.
Gabbro realizes the theme and leads the wolf to the three houses made of straw, sticks, and bricks, destroying the first two and hiding in the third, completing the 'story' and destroying the wolf.
Two ponies, who had been chased by the wolf, appear, one holding a Mother Goose book with a bookmark and a shard of glass embedded within.
A blue Pegasi takes the bookmark and runs. Brilliant Dawn, actually Night's changeling ally Elytra, tackles the Pegasi, who is revealed to be an ESP member. Gabbro retrieves the bookmark.
They briefly escape and open a portal with their amulet, but Elytra casts a sleep spell on them, stopping them.
Gabbro goes to Far to get the shard into containment, and Tale charges through the portal, which closes behind her.
Gabbro gets the now depowered amulet and ties, blinds, gags, and deafens the pegasi. Infuriated at Tale's recklessness, Gabbro and Elytra take the Pegasi to HQ for questioning, while Far took the shard to the Professor and investigated the area it was found.

Professor Oricalchum has asked the group to check up on his colleague Doctor Fulcrum, needing a device from the doctor for a special project, though having recieved no response, the group is sent to check on him and retrieve the part at his large house on a hill
There are multiple traps. First, a spring loaded welcome mat that Tale destroys with her sword.
Then Night went off to a water wheel and the group finds the Hall of Horrible Polka Music(a string of words I never thought I would utter)
Fire burns the portraits emitting the music and Night begins tinkering with some levers
The group makes it through a checkerboard room that fires Pies and finds a pushable wall and reach the Doctor
The doctor gives the group the Automapper, and they set off to bring it to Oricalchum

It is the night of a predicted meteor shower, and a camp has been set up, but many are on their own to get there. It is afternoon and the wagons have already left, so the ponies will have to travel through the blazing hot desert to make it
They meet a Diamond Dog named Digby and, in exchange for water, get given directions and a warning about 'tumbles'
This warning turns out to be apt when a group of tumbleweeds roll up...and reveal themselves to be tumblewolves
Gabbro, Nebenfigur, Nightstalker, and Fire all fight off the wolves, and they make it back to camp

Session Summary 12/20/2019 Meteor Investigation
Players: Toot Sweet, Gabbro Ilmenite, Nightstalker, Nebenfigur, Rosie Sunshine, Marc Moses, Blackjack, Tale Spinner, Cinnamon String, pony jack
It is a chilly night. The telescopes are set up, and everyone awaits the meteor shower
Gabbro tells Tale about the journey she missed and the shower begins
The telescope pones seems to see something odd, and Tale looks as well. A pinpoint of blue light in the sky, streaming towards the camp, redirecting itself to a plateau at the last moment
Gabbro, Night, and Tale make it up, spotting a glowing meteorite and a pony from 'Ethereal Storm Plotting' who claims to be an expert meterogist.
Gabbro attempts to contain the stone, only for it to explode into a bunch of shadow things that are then contained within a box by the ESP pony
Night claims she will not let ESP take any more artifacts, and the pony, Ms. White, smiles, heads into a portal, and then as it closes, the smile becomes a scowl
Players: Toot Sweet, Gabbro Ilmenite, pony jack, Nightstalker, Sun Bubbles, Fire Blaster, Cinnamon String, Nebenfigur, Silent Shade, Farsight, Scatty Clockwork
The University is holding a showcase, mostly meant for aspiring students, with tents set up
Gabbro attempts to help Scatty overcome his plant fear, but fails.
Gabbro, Nebenfigur, Farsight, and Nightstalker discuss the disappearance of two more weather Pegasi, one of whom being Toot Sweet. Night has an idea, and tells Gabbro that she will be his instructor in training instead of the usual.
Scatty casts acceleration on Sun, resulting in a hyperactive and constantly thirsty Sun Bubbles
Sun was looking for the pony supposed to take over the geology exhibit, and found him with the help of Farsight
Players: Toot Sweet, Spring Strudel, Nightstalker, Nebenfigur, Rosie Sunshine, pony jack, Cinnamon String, Farsight, Winged Hussar, Aura Swirl, Sun Bubbles, Fire Blaster, Sole Eclipsa, Luna Eclipsa, Blue Roses, Cipher Decode, Marshmallow Cactus
It is a bright sunny day in Cantermore, pleasant despite the chill. University staff are preparing for some future event, setting up tents and stalls.
Toot is sour due to having to work that day, and in Cantermore
Far accosts Fire Blaster over his keyblade. Nebenfigur debates waking Night up, but Spring advises against it. Sole Eclipsa, Rosie Sunshine, and Winged Hussar help to defuse the situation and Fire is merely fined 1100 bits.
It is discovered that the reason Toot was called in is because the entire Cantermore weather team is MIA. Night agrees to investigate, and Spring agrees to ask her mother if there was any kind of training that would have left the team busy
Marshmallow Cactus is revealed to be literally marshmallows, and asks ponies to eat her hand repeatedly. Spring is weirded out by this and flies off
Session Summary 10/25/2019 Forest of the Full Moon
Players: Lemon Grass, Spring Strudel, Nightstalker, Silent Shade, Cloudy Paint, Fire Blaster, Valor Heart, Rosie Sunshine, pony jack, Winged Hussar, Caramel Tart, Fourleaf Clover
The group finds itself unable to sleep on a dark night. Then the wind picks up, a gentle sound and a faint whisper lulling everyone to sleep. Everyone finds themselves in a dense, unsettling forest.
Night and Silent are arguing. Apparently they had messed with something without wards and caused this, though they refused to actually explain it to the group, only revealing it in hushed conversations with eachother.
They come across a bridge with a barrier that requires a riddle to pass, the answer being river
They then find a cemetery with another riddle. The answer is death(also apparently Fourleaf Clover was a ghost?)
They find a garden full of Alicorn statues. The answer this time is silence
They end up in a meadow and find a house. The door opens...
Players: Toot Sweet, Spring Strudel, Nightstalker, Gabbro Ilmenite, Marc Moses, Shadow Pone, Sun Bubbles, Night Powder, Aura Way, Structure, Tale Spinner, random fandom, Rosie Sunshine, Fire Blaster, cookie dough, pony jack, Farsight, Night Bloom
The group receives a flyer for a carnival, but upon entering White Tail Park a thick fog rolls in. The sound of rides and laughter can be heard, and every pony ends up in a large field. A red moon shines high above, and any attempt to leave results in returning back to the field. All the attractions have a macabre twist, strange figures move within the shadows, and the attractions seem unmanned(unponied?)
There were ghost bumper cars, and a pony named George who spoke in an accent
Gabbro attempts to talk to Night about her family, but Spring shows up and calls Bloom Yazaki, only to receive a poor reception. She quickly grabs Gabbro and runs off to the haunted house ride.
Gabbro is terrified, but Spring was excited the whole time.
They enter a hall of mirrors and Night and Bloom scare Gabbro.
They attempt to do the same to Spring(Spring apologizes to Bloom, but it's a distraction), but she is unphazed. Gabbro witnesses Night travel through mirrors to get behind Spring
Tale manages to get her skeleton costume back from a reflection that stole it
At dawn, a chime sounds and they all end up back in White Tail Park
Players: Toot Sweet, Spring Strudel, Gabbro Ilmenite, Night Bloom, Silent Shade, Nebenfigur, Night Powder, Rusty Pipe Organ, Cinnamon String, Tale Spinner, Marc Moses, Fire Blaster, Gumummy Drop, pony jack
After the show, the group gets ready for the basement tour(Spring finds out Yazaki is Night Bloom's real name, but does not get an answer as to Nightstalker)
They take the elevator, which seems to go down more than one would have thought from being a cloud building
In the artifact storage, a strange cylinder makes some ponies hear a ringing sound, Tale hears giggling, and Powder hears voices and stays behind and attempts to take the cylinder, evading Rusty and hiding it, only for Silent to catch them, using a trick similar to the ones Bloom had used
In the archive room, shadowy ponies appear on the walls. Silent says it is a figment of imagination, but Gabbro sees him glare at the shadows and they vanish, further inciting Gabbro's curiousity
Players: Radiant Shores, Spring Strudel, Rosie Sunshine, Nebenfigur, Cinnamon String, Nightstalker, pony jack, Farsight, Gumdrop, Starweave, Tale Spinner, Diamond Hooves
The trains creaks to a stop in a lonely station, with the crew rushing for repairs. A sudden breakage in the engine room had forced a change of course
A dust cloud caused by buffalo happens
There was a floating rock and several ponies investigated it
Diamond Hooves reveals her parents died when she was 2 and that she's run the saloon alone ever since, to which Spring expresses sadness and Night dismisses the grief, causing Spring to practically explode, after which Night consoles her, Far scares Diamond off, Spring tracks her down, and Diamond agrees to leave town.
