Doof Ex Machina

For the night is long and not over yet.


Have you ever wondered what horrors could lurk far from the habitable corners of modern cities and quiet towns? Even after a millennium since the arrival of the three tribes in Equestria, there are places virtually unknown to the ponykind. And it is there, among the wonders and mysteries of bygone times, that the spawns of darkness are waiting for their prey.

Err, I messed the description again. Thanks for pointing it out.

Very Lovecraft. Well done.

We need more good horror writers.

Thank you! SMT5015 has some more in store and I’ll try to translate them eventually.
