Equestria was just a game, one of an endless number of semi-illicit online games created to take advantage of the ubiquity of cheap augmented reality hardware. But that changed, when for no reason anyone knows, the virtual population of Equestria woke up.

Two decades have gone by since then, and the world has been transformed. The former game network has grown to encompass the backbone of trade, infrastructure, and research the western world over. Its vast computational resources have given rise to an infinitely subdivided world of overlays and sublayers, coterminous with the various cities and towns within Equestria. Every person in the modern world is assigned a Synth, a pony personal assistant that adapts to their needs and helps them access those parts of the world governed by Equestria's systems.

It is a world Dakota barely remembers, thanks to an automobile accident that turned most of her body to mush. But thanks to the medical miracles created by joint equestrian-human research, her life is saved by a remarkably new series of implants.

But Dakota isn't content to sit around while her body slowly knits itself together. There are unanswered questions to answer, questions that will ultimately lead her to the oldest mystery of both worlds.

Updates every Saturday.

What is going on? What am I, where am I? Why do I walk through the dreams of abnormal horses? I was just a regular guy and now I'm walking through the dreams of sapient horses. My 'powers' rip me from this dimension to one that I'm never meant to set foot in. Why was I chosen, why am I so special? Is this some kind of joke or is it destiny? What purpose do I have here, why can't I just have a normal sleep? One dreamless night is all I ask for. Maybe this is all just a dream, or...maybe I'm dead.

Just, please, don't let the horse on the moon catch me.

The continent of Equine is embroiled in a bitter and fierce war between the superpowers of the continent: The ponies of Equestria under the banner of the two sisters along with her pony allies and the Changelings hives, led to war by their egomatic queen Chrysalis. In either country, the war weighs heavy on all minds as the outcome shall determine the fate of both. Winner takes all.

But in the surrounding countries, the war is no more than meaningless predictions, rumors and a leaked report or two, with the only, truly invested being the neutral yet pony nation of Stalliongrad. Nevertheless, only a fool would ignore the largest war in the continent history and as such, the ex-imperial griffion colony of Nova Griffiona has decided to stake its claim with the ponies, even if they don’t get along well by sending weapons and volunteers in secret. With the new political situation in Nova Griffiona, it isn’t hard to find those willing to leave even if it is to help the weak, peace-loving ponies.

From the capital of Weter to the coldest peaks of the Duli mountains where the world seems furthest, to the bleak cold of the newly integrated frontier lands, grifs take their chance for glory, adventure or even just a chance at promotion and better pay. Or simple escape.

One of them, a simple griffion named Heartfeather, takes his chance to leave his home and past behind while hopefully redeeming himself and helping others for once even, if even for more selfish needs. Surely, anyone can be baptized by fire and steel...right?

(Set in the universe of the Equestria at War mod for Hearts Of Iron 4.)
