Welcome to the sixth entry to the Legend of Spike Series, Dragon Quest! This one is going to be based on one of the most influential video games in my life. Dragon Quest I (a.k.a. Dragon Warrior) is the game that introduced me to my passion of all things dragons. As I child, I would watch my older brother play videos games. Being the awesome big brother that he is, he would also draw me the monsters from the game, which were designed by Akira Toriyama of the Dragon Ball fame. It made my imagination go wild. A mystical kingdom, a kidnapped princess, fantastical monsters, magic spells, legendary relics, and a king of dragons! I hope everyone enjoys the ride!

Ah yes, another Legend of Spike story. Good opening, let's see where this one goes.

Yeah finally. Let's see what happens. I'm reading the title opening and it already seems good.:yay:

Let me get this straight: Some mysterious stallion is willing to help Prince Narcissus (I'm surprised that he's still considered a Prince) to help him out of jail, and I'm gonna go on a bit of a limb here and say that the mysterious stallion is connected with all of this Lord Harrmon cult business.

....not to mention that one of their big things is that they say the world as ponykind knows it will end, and probably wipe away the filth, and will need a lot ponies to pretty much fuck and rut constantly to repopulate the world....it's essentially exile, genocide, then orgy......ok.

......:rainbowderp: Fruitcakes.

The fact that it seems that they are a significant part of the story seems to me that Spike and entourage needs to jump on it, even if it is a wild goose chase. After all, it only takes a misplaced match to figurately (and literally) create a powerful and destructive forest fire [it's a metaphor].

The plot and intensity! IT THICKENS!!!
Also, nice little bit of closure between Spike and little Aurum, there. Really nice touch.

I edited the end of the chapter to make the Dragonlord's ultimatum clearer and more threatening.

you done a fantastic job with stories keep it up

1/ How much of Equestria is really gonna get destroyed because of this? I say this, because I smell a huge doublecross--the Dragonlord knows that ultimately the Princesses of Equestria is the reason for the accord, and I hate to say it but Ryto is correct, legally what Celestia did, while it did save Spike's life, and successfully discover the Element of Magic, she violated the agreement by not returning that egg to the dragons. And even if they decided to actually allow Spike to return to Dragon Country, he's gonna level Equestria, burn it to the ground, as well as pretty much kill and/or rape the entire pony population (obvious more killings than rapes--I can't see dragons wanting to deal with hybrids).

2/ I have a sinking suspicion that Spike's ultimately going to succumb to the DragonLord, even with all the work that everypony is gonna do to stop the threat because even though he is the Dragon Prince of Equestria, he is a husband gravelly worried for his wife first, and that could compromise Equestria because other than the Elements, Spike's the most powerful weapon that they have.

3/ There is no tragedy tag in there but I do think that at some point it will need to be added, because I believe that a few heroes are gonna fall in the battles. One I think I can say may be Flash Sentry--it's gonna be a very sorrowful time. Rarity could also be a possible casulty--if that happens, all bets are off with Prince Spike.

I really hope that there is more on the way, seems like it's been a while since this chapter was published. I hope it's still being written, though I can completely understand if it's a bit delayed due to real-like commitments.

1. You are correct. Someone is pulling the strings from behind the scenes. As for Dragonlord Ryuo, there is a reason why he is giving Spike a week to surrender.

2. This story is going to have two acts, the first based on Dragon Quest 1 and the second based on Dragon Quest 2. There is also some of the prequel, Dragon Quest 3, thrown in for backstory. If you have played the first three Dragon Quest games (Dragon Warrior in the U.S.), then you have a hint about how this is going to play out. For more information on the Dragon Quest games, check here, here, and here. Warning: Potential spoilers for the story .

3. There is a Tragedy Tag along with a Gore Tag (mostly for blood and violence, nothing too graphic). However, it's mostly for Act 2: Dragon Quest 2. Let's just say that Lord Hargon's cult isn't as benevolent (:ajbemused: yah think?) as they would have you believe, and their practices are... well... think Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.

I don't think it's gonna be a spoiler as far as I'm concerned, simply because I've never really played any of the Dragon Quest trilogy, so even with having an idea how it's gonna go, there will still be surprises in store.

As for the 'Temple of Doom' reference, I have to rewatch that movie to get it, I don't have it. Probably have to go the the library to rent it and watch. Thanks for the head's up :twilightsmile:

Though there won't be any heart removing, this is the basic idea.

Just imagine Malroth as Kali and Hargon as Mola Ram.
Speaking of which...
derpicdn.net/img/2013/3/4/262602/large.jpg

Not all treasure is silver and gold, my dear.

So I take it that Ryto doesn't believe that his own life being spared because of the mercy of Princess Celestia over a millenium previous wasn't a good enough present at all?? If I remember correctly, it was Ryto that stood down and surrendered. I'm pretty sure that Celestia could easily destroy Ryto at the time, but abstained because it would be the end of the world for all species, INCLUDING DRAGONS...feel free to correct me if I'm wrong...

And his issue basically comes down to "One dragoness and her eggs were crushed because of an accident by ponies that were mining, so we want to eradicate your species because of that one dragoness"....Talk about disopropriate retribution...We are in accord of one thing--loss of life needs to be remember and sombly as well as respectually honored for those made the ultimate sacrifice whether it was on purpose or being the victim of bad circumstance, but seriously? Genocide because of the loss of one of your own? Take a long look in the mirror at some time Dragonlord Ryto, or whoever the fuck is controlling him, because if the ultimate goal is the rule of the world, you sure are doing a really shitty job at it. Not to mention pathetic that you have to revert to hypnosis to have most of dragonkind follow you w/o any free will.

After all, what twisted fuck wants to rule what would ultimately be rubble, fire, and destruction as far as the eye can see.

Pardon my swearing, just that when I see this and can see that the antagonists are the way they are basically because they are idiots, they piss me off a bit. Whatever happened to sharing and allies? And it's sad that the same differences that make ponies and other creatures unique to each other ultimately the potential ending to their downfall. I mean, just take a look at Rarity and Spike==they have been happily married for close to twenty-five years, have a daughter that is a literal example of showing ponies and dragons can co-exist in harmony, If the reason for not loving one another was simply because of the species, there there are so many more problems then there are solutions. One species strength can be another species' weakness. Even more reason to team up and work together, not fighting each other.

Rant over. Waiting for the next chapter...

I enjoy your commentary. Here's some more food for thought.

So I take it that Ryto doesn't believe that his own life being spared because of the mercy of Princess Celestia over a millenium previous wasn't a good enough present at all?? If I remember correctly, it was Ryto that stood down and surrendered.

Being spared was probably more insulting to him than if they killed him. Now he has to live with the knowledge that he lost to two pony princesses, creatures that he sees as being beneath him (then again, he is a dragon. All things are beneath him in his eyes). Dragons live long lives and can hold grudges for a VERY long time. Now that he has a reason to void the pact, he is more than eager to settle the score.

I'm pretty sure that Celestia could easily destroy Ryto at the time, but abstained because it would be the end of the world for all species, INCLUDING DRAGONS...feel free to correct me if I'm wrong...

Back then, it took both Celestia and Luna to make Ryuo submit. That was when they were all younger and less powerful than they are now. Their battle caused great destruction. If they fought now, Equestria might be destroyed in the process.

And his issue basically comes down to "One dragoness and her eggs were crushed because of an accident by ponies that were mining, so we want to eradicate your species because of that one dragoness"....Talk about disopropriate retribution...We are in accord of one thing--loss of life needs to be remember and sombly as well as respectually honored for those made the ultimate sacrifice whether it was on purpose or being the victim of bad circumstance, but seriously? Genocide because of the loss of one of your own?

Like Ryuo said, "Not all treasure is silver and gold." There is another reason why he is doing all of this. Don't worry, it'll soon be revealed. However, even without this reason, Ryuo would still commit genocide against the ponies. Remember, he sees them as insects. To him, it would be no different than disposing an annoying wasp nest or an ant mound. Think about it, he's thousands of years old and ponies, being the human equivalents, rarely live up to a hundred. A proportionate retribution for the dragoness's life alone would still be dozens of ponies' lives, not to mention her eggs' potential lives.

Take a long look in the mirror at some time Dragonlord Ryto, or whoever the fuck is controlling him, because if the ultimate goal is the rule of the world, you sure are doing a really shitty job at it.

Actually, the mastermind behind this, Hargon, is quite brilliant. Insane and evil, but brilliant. He wants to free Malroth to purge the world so he can rebuild it in his image where Malroth is the new god and Hargon is the king of the world. The only thing that was stopping him was the Tree of Harmony. He also knew that his cult didn't have the power to take the Tree by force and the only one who could was Ryuo and his army. By finding the scroll in the last chapter in the previous story, he had the means to manipulate the Dragonlord and use his wrath to serve his purpose.

Not to mention pathetic that you have to revert to hypnosis to have most of dragonkind follow you w/o any free will.

Actually, the dragons follow Ryuo because he is their king. He used his hypnosis on them to demonstrate his power and to try to get Spike to join him.

After all, what twisted fuck wants to rule what would ultimately be rubble, fire, and destruction as far as the eye can see.

Sometimes, you need to clear the table in order to build something new.

Funny that you mention this:

Actually, the mastermind behind this, Hargon, is quite brilliant. Insane and evil, but brilliant. He wants to free Malroth to purge the world so he can rebuild it in his image where Malroth is the new god and Hargon is the king of the world. The only thing that was stopping him was the Tree of Harmony. He also knew that his cult didn't have the power to take the Tree by force and the only one who could was Ryuo and his army. By finding the scroll in the last chapter in the previous story, he had the means to manipulate the Dragonlord and use his wrath to serve his purpose.

Let's say that he succeeded--the vast majority of ponykind has been destroyed (there will always be stragglers; probability suggest that probably 1% of ponykind is left). Everything has turned into an actual apocalypse or Tartarus on Earth. Hargon gets to be king of the world, but Malroth is a god. What's to say that Malroth just simple make Hargon cease to exist? Last time I checked, a god kinda outduels a so-called king. Not to mention the phrase 'absolute power corrupts absolutely'. Apparently Hargon is a middleman, and we all know that most are trying to eliminate the middleman when it comes to this...

Just an opinion--I mean, if Malroth is so all-powerful, then what's to say that Hargon is really necessary? It kinda gets back to the previous Legend of Spike story where a offspring of Blueblood (Prince Narcissus, if I remember correctly) teamed up with Chrysalis to attempt to overthrow Equestria, as well as kidnapping the children of the Elements as a ransom, but conveniently forgot that Spike was preparing for one of his extended naps in one of his lairs, which the kids accidentally discovered and relayed Spike as to what happened. Simply put, it wasn't all that good for either Narcissus (given lifetime imprisonment--apparently execution is a no-no in Equestria), or Chrysalis (Spike single-handedly eradicated the entire Changeling species, including Chrysalis, in a fit of dragon rage because she made the mistake of kidnapping his daughter Amethyst along with the other kids). If I didn't know better, it would seen that Hargon has already made his life forfeit and signed his own death warrant.

6968590

Later we'll see how Hargon came in contact with Malroth and what their deal was, but that'll be in Act 2. All I can say is that Malroth needs Hargon to free him. Their plan is already in action and we'll see what it is by the end of Act 1.

Welp that pouts a wrinkle in the plan, Ryuo has the sword .

Just like in "Return of Harmony" where Discord knew exactly how to disharmonize Twilight and her friends, I knew that DragonLord Ryuo would already have plans in place to see how the Elements and Spike would be doing, hence the security monitors that seems a lot like bats.

I knew that there was gonna be a doublecross, and even more so, it seems that it's gonna to be Twilight and Spike that makes it to the Dragonlord's stronghold. I wouldn't be surprised if that turns out to be what was known as Hawk's Nest... Don't get me wrong--the other teams and their goals are quite important as well, but the more I think about this, it seems more like just a wild goose chase. Ryuo's captured Rarity, knowing that Spike's coming for her come Tatarus or high water. Also I think Ryuo knows how powerful all of the Elements are including Spike, so the whole 'search all of Equestria for these relics" plan is just another way to split them all us. It's simple divide and conquer--Ryuo could care less about what the ApplePie or the FlutterDash teams do, his main objection is Princess Twilight and Prince Spike. To him, it would be the equivalent of two birds with one stone--he can rid his enemy of one Princess, and gain a potentially lethal and limitless weapon to turn against his friends, family, and country in an effort to assert dragons of their superiority as well as make the pony race extinct...

Also I see the Renny Field Easter Egg in there--or should I be saying Lady Crimson, since she's a immortal vampire now and obviously not his daughter. Too bad that there would be a time where she actually came back to actually help Spike on something, but that could be just retreading already tilled ground if there was a story that Lady Crimson wants to take revenge for Dracula's demise. Hey--that sound like another Legend of Spike tale, and it would be one where Luna would be a major character since she would have a feeling what could be happening especially if it seems like Dracula's back...

Here's more supplementary material showing what Rhone and the Temple of Malroth looks like.

The PLOT! It thickens!
The Official! He approves!
This comment! It's nonsensical!

It's so fascinating and at the same time saddening that so many people fall to the Dark Side because life doesn't work for them as expected. All these ponies are essentially plotting treason just because they don't like the way the Princesses rule Equestria. Apparently everypony has their price--meet or exceed that price and their assurance is close to guaranteed. Sure there will be a few that really see what's happening and want to repent, but at that point it's too late for them anyway--even if they are saved from it, they are permanantly scarred and marked because everypony knows you betrayed your own kind for selfish wants and needs. And while they are working on this thing to attempt to summon Malroth, it seems that everypony is blissfully unaware that they are all pawns, and ultimately will be eliminated (every tyrant will want all the power for him or herself, and have absoulutely no opponents, no matter how small and insignificante it can be. I mean, even the DragonLord has to know that he's a pawn as well---if he succeeded in levelling Equestria, there's no stopping Malroth to 'tie loose ends' (i.e. eliminate all the dragons, considered to be the apex predator and significant obstacles to absolute power).

And also that chess metaphor: yes, it's true that to excel at chess, not only do you know your strategy, but you know the tendencies of your opponent as well. Lord Harmond really thinks that he's got an one-up on the Sisters because he's got the Dragons to do his dirty work, as well as knowing what happening at the moment. But there is always something that is never accounted for--this is why we have hope.

Also, I really hope Amethyst, Thunderbolt, and Mina are able to break out of jail--Equestria needs all of their princesses at the moment.

This is fantastic you really know how to pull story readers in i very much approve of you're stories friend dare say it the legend of spike series is just as good if not better than the bride of discord series.
but i will say this as long as one stays strong even the greatest armies can fall and the grandest plans can fail.

Hargon, What are you doing? You said you needed Royal blood!
I do need Royal Blood
Nooooooooo!
Narcissus laid on the alter his heart removed from his dead body
I surely need Royal blood.

"The order needs your children." Yes we need to protect them from the illuminati reptilian that controls the shadow government

Oh boy...:facehoof:

Rarity has made progress--she's made Ryuo have some second thoughts about why this is happening, as well as figuring out some things about the family that Spike didn't know. For starters, the dragoness that perished in that mining accident is none other than Spike's birth mother, as well as Ryuo's wife, Xia. This goes without saying that Rarity now understands that she's not just speaking to the DragonLord, she is also speaking to the father of her husband. Talk about having to co-exist with your recently discovered father-in-law...:twilightoops:

And in that same vein, I wonder how he's gonna react when he discovered that his son Spike and Rarity successfully have a child that is a hybrid. One who is also a princess (thanks to the titles on Spike and Rarity) and as of this chapter--his lone granddaughter. To twist the knife a bit, now the Dragonlord has to witness his only granddaughter shackled and imprisoned like any other common dragon. I truly hope that Rarity's rebuttal can bounce around in that gigantic head of his--enough that he can see something's amiss, especially if he learns that things were civil until just recently.

Finally, we are starting to see the connection between the DragonLord and the mysterious robed pony (who we know now is a cultist of Lord Haragon). We can see the basics of the two sides.

I'm looking forward to when Spike discovers the same shocking discovery that Rarity just found out.

7041658
Actually, the robed pony (also the one in the picture) is Hargon himself. He's based off of the villain of Dragon Quest II.
woodus.com/den/gallery/graphics/dq25annivwii/monsterart/hargon.png
I prefer his re-design, but it lacks the bat emblem on his robes.

Some trivia. I named the Dragonlord after the Japanese version of his name, Ryuo (Dragon King). Despite what Street Fighter says, Ryu isn't pronounced "Rie-u." I have a friend from Japan named Ryu. There isn't an "R" or "L" in Japanese, but something in between. You have to train your tongue to say it right. However, he answers to both "Ru" and "Lu." He's cool like that. In my story, it's pronounced "Ru-oh."

I named Spike's birth mother after Xia(pronounced "Zhia") from Dragon Quest VIII. Xia is the main character's mother, and she was a Dragovian, a being that can change between a human form and a dragon. She married a human against her father's wishes. After his parents died, the Lord of the Dragovians seals his memories away and sends the child to live with the humans. So, like Spike, the main character grows up not knowing where he came from. The Lord of the Dragovians is optional boss, and he gives you a prize each time you defeat him. His final form is the Dragonlord from Dragon Quest I.

The Dragonlord's mother and predecessor is based off the Dragon Queen from Dragon Quest III. The first three Dragon Quest games is a trilogy with Part 2 taking place a hundred years after Part 1 and Part 3 a hundred years before (III-I-II). In Dragon Quest III, the dying Dragon Queen gives you the magical Ball of Light in order to defeat the Archfiend Zoma. After giving you the Ball of Light, she lays her egg and dies. In the remakes of the game, there's an optional boss located in a secret area of her castle; Xenlon the Divine Dragon, who grants you wishes if you beat him. Since Dragon Quest and the Dragon Ball series is drawn by Akira Toriyama, both Xenlon and Shenron are based on Shenlong from Chinese Mythology. In my story, I named her Xenlona (Zen-lon-a) in homage to both the Dragon Queen and Xenlon.

Dragon Quest I is one of if not the first JRPG, so it has a rather basic story; the classic knight slays dragon to rescue the princess trope. However, there is a deeper story to it if you look closer. Before the game starts, the Dragonlord has destroyed the city of Haukness, and then he kidnapped the Princess and stole the Ball of Light. In Dragon Quest III, the Dragon Queen gives you the Ball of Light. A hundred years later in Dragon Quest I, the Dragonlord steals it. It is never said directly that he is her son, but it's implied. So, he could have been just taking back what he believed to be his birthright. In the game, you find the legendary Armor of Erdrick in the ruins of Haukness, but the Sword of Erdrick is located in the castle of the Dragonlord; Charlock Castle. Why was it there? Why of all the towns in the land, why attack that one? Could it be that the Sword was kept there alongside of the Armor and the Dragonlord wanted to make sure the one weapon that could defeat him was out of the way before he attack the kingdom?

7041805

So Haragon is finally introduced. Honestly I didn't expect him until much later, or even in the previous chapter. But then again, we had to see the shaky alliance between him and Ryuo. Based on what has happened so far everything is coming through even better than he planned. But I bet he didn't plan for the possibility that the Dragonlord can be swayed a bit--and I truly believe that Rarity is a prime reason for it. To play it further, I think that it's already started--if Rarity is a prisoner and dragons have such disdain for equines, then why did Ryuo provided her with high-quality food and drink? You would think that it would be something like stale hay and dirty warm water. Granted, Rarity had to sleep on the floor of a cavern, but then she was provided with some adequate clothing to lay on instead of the hard ground.

Come to think of it, this really sounds a lot like Fiora Rosa and Aurum the Gold all over again, Rarity channeling Rosa and Ruyo as Aurum. Granted though, the previous became husband and wife; these two are already family, even if they don't realize it.

I would love to see a image of Xia. Probably can look into Dragon Quest to find some.

7046361

So Haragon is finally introduced. Honestly I didn't expect him until much later, or even in the previous chapter.

Actually, we first see Hargon in the last chapter of the previous story stealing the scroll. We first see him in this story when he speaks to Narcissus in prison. But he was finally revealed as Lord Hargon and in full regalia in the previous chapter. This chapter is just the one I used the picture of him.

if Rarity is a prisoner and dragons have such disdain for equines, then why did Ryuo provided her with high-quality food and drink? You would think that it would be something like stale hay and dirty warm water. Granted, Rarity had to sleep on the floor of a cavern, but then she was provided with some adequate clothing to lay on instead of the hard ground.

At first, she was nothing more than leverage to use against Spike, but then he found out that she was his daughter-in-law. In his eyes and according to his own Noble Dragon Code, she is a Princess because she is married to his son, the Dragon Prince, and it would be dishonorable to treat her as anything less than so. Funny, the ponies call Spike the Dragon Prince of Equestria because he's a Prince of Equestria who happens to be a dragon, and the Dragonlord calls him that because Spike is the Prince of Dragons.

I would love to see a image of Xia. Probably can look into Dragon Quest to find some.

You never see a picture of Xia as a dragon, but here she is in human form.

How are you coming along with the next chapter? This story is really getting good and I can't wait to see what happens next!:pinkiehappy:

7120452
I'm purposely waiting for this week's episode. It might give me more ideas to add to my story.

7122008
After watching today's episode, I've updated this chapter. It's not a big change. Torch and Ember maybe lords, but Ryuo is king. I can start working on the next chapter now that has been resolved.

7130819 Thanks for the update! One more question: Are you planning to incorporate Ember and the Blood Stone scepter into the story in some way?

7130850
Head canon: I think Torch was the Dragon Lord of Equestria and there are other Dragon Lords for different regions. He even addresses the dragons as dragons of Equestria. The Bloodstone Staff is just his symbol of authority. As for your question, I might rework the story to include Ember. Maybe she was going to be the guest of honor at the Draconic New Year Celebration. Or maybe she is another dragon under Ryuo's control.

I've included Dragon Lord Ember into the story. She was going to be the guest of honor at Fillydelphia's Draconic New Year Festival. She may make an appearance later on in the story. To clarify, Ember, like her father before her, is the Dragon Lord of Equestria meaning that she is leader of only the dragons that live in Equestria. In Gauntlet of Fire, the only adult dragon we saw was Torch and the rest were teenagers, and they were supposed to be ALL of the dragons in Equestria. In Dragon Quest, we saw the Great Dragon Migration and that had a LOT of adult dragons. They are most likely all dragons from all over the world. In my story, Ryuo's offical title is the Dragon King. His title is hereditary and for life. In the original Japanese Dragon Quest game, he is called either King Dragon or Dragon King depending on the translation. He is only called Dragonlord in the English localization. Should I edit the story and just call him Dragon King Ryuo? Is it confusing having both Dragon Lords and the Dragonlord?

7135067

I think Dragon King Ryuo does work a bit better than DragonLord Ryuo now that you explained it. After all, he's the King of Kings for all Dragons regardless of the region that they are from. Plus, in an little bit of fringe brilliance, considering that Spike, his biological son, is officially a Prince, it would make natural sense that the father of the Dragon Prince of Equestria would be the undisputed King of Dragons.

It would be a bit ironic here in this story that Ember could have probably authority of all dragons in Equestria, especially when Spike is a Prince in his own right (and even more so that we know his biological father is the King of Dragons Ryuo).

7153857
Thanks for the input. I'll go ahead and just make it Dragon King Ryuo. As for Ember, I added her to the story. She was to be the guest of honor for the Fillydelphia Draconic New Year Festival. Ember is the Dragon Lord of the wild dragons of Equestria, so Spike wouldn't fall within her dominion since he is a part of the Kingdom of Equestria. Now that we know his father is Ryuo and that he is the Dragon Prince, he would outrank Ember.

I've also added a reference to Starlight Glimmer in Chapter 7. She's living in the Crystal Empire with Sunburst.

How many parts will this series have?

7198959
Do you mean how chapters in this story or do you mean how many stories in the series? Either way, we're around the halfway mark for this story, which is the last planned story in the series for now.

Rarity, sometime we have to just shove all of our chips into the pot and go 'all in' and damn whatever happens afterward. You know that Ryuo is your father-in-law and that Spike is his long lost son. Even with someone as ruthless as the Dragon King is, blood is still thicker than water, no matter how pure or diluted it is. If the Dragon King discovers that his only granddaughter is shackled in chains like a common criminal, then you can pretty much kiss Equestia, or at least a good chunk of it, goodbye. And as much horrible timing that it is, you have to reveal that to your teammates and especially your husband. For all we know this could be a blessing in disguise--I have a weird feeling that Ryuo the grandfather (and yes, I will say grandfather, after that huge claw drops everypony will know) will be able to rescue Amethyst, Mina, and Thunderbolt safely, as well as everyone else.

Mayor should of been relieved and arrested, Not a meeting scheduled for the next day. :trollestia: False imprisonment, Martial law?

In this chapter, Dragon King Ryuo directly quotes Smaug and indirectly quotes the Sith Code:
"Peace is a lie, there is only passion.
Through passion, I gain strength.
Through strength, I gain power.
Through power, I gain victory.
Through victory, my chains are broken.
The Force shall free me."

I knew that there would be a combination of emotions when Ryuo descended on Fillydelphia...one the one hand, it's heartwarming that he finally meets his granddaughter (even though she doesn't quite realize that yet--I bet that Rarity is gonna have to relay that news in the next chapter, not to mention that Spike's opponent is his own father), and one the other hand, I'm saddened that what we were afraid of happening did happen because of speciest ponies that can't see past their own hooves, not to mention that because of their prejudice, we have a huge cadre of pissed off dragons that would probably come back to level Equestria..

I think I've said it before, but it needs to be said: Skinflint should NEVER BE FORGIVEN...as a matter of fact, he should be executed by dragonfire in front of all of the ponies of Fillydelphia, to show him what happens when you try to cross Princess Celestia, and to show the citizens of Fillydelphia first-hand what will happen to them when they allow prejudice to taint their thoughts. The dragons of Dragon Town didn't bother anyone at all, and yet because of their prejudice, Fillydelphia may now be severely damaged by the upcoming dragon surge, and the sad thing will be that it's all on them. I think I said it a few chapters ago, which I speculated that a pretty good part of Equestria is gonna be destroyed because of dragon rampage. Please forgive me for my sudden vindicive streak but part of would not want to have Fillydelpia rebuilt--they made their bed, and now it's time for them to sleep in it. But I know the right thing would be after all of this would be resolved, Fillydelphia can be brought back--it's not fair for the ponies of that town to suffer because of a leadership that allowed power to corrupt.

When's the next chapter coming out?

Production has been kind of slow because I had to house/pet sit for my sister while she was on vacation. The next chapter is halfway written, and I hope to get back on schedule soon.

Bazuzu is one of the three sub-bosses before the final battle in Dragon Quest 2 and the strongest of the Batboon demons. He's based off of the Assyro-Babylonian god Pazuzu, Prince of the Demons of the Wind. Now that Bazuzu has been summoned, Hargon will summon Atlas, General of the Giants, and Zarlox, Malroth's Archdemon.
