A Conversation

Camp Vesus: Musket Construction 101

The entire camp was busy unloading new blueprints for the new weaponry the "Muskets." The head of the camp were looking at the blueprints and then said.

"Alright, Kenda! Get a miner team to the mountains and start searching for more Iron! Captain Kruss! Begin melting down some unused swords and spears! And big Jack! Cut down some trees!" Head weaponry Commissioner Gordan said, as the leader's of the groups break and started getting to work.

Blacksmiths begin lighting their hammers as they banged on the medal rod, used for both the trigger and the bayonet for the muskets, while the tree cutting group begins chopping down trees and plating them at the same time as the lumber is transported back to the smelters camp.

The Miners also begun mining up the iron to be smelted for this weapon as it is shipped out by hand and shoulders since mine carts were not invented. (Yet hehe)

The iron is stock piled. The wood is sliced by Lumber jacks. And the old swords/spears are broken down to pieces or molted. After that, the design label to the trigger is given to the blacksmiths as they craft the curve part of the trigger while the new engineers begin crafting the insides of the musket and the rod itself.

As the head watched the construction of the new rifles a messenger came towards him with a message from the king and with the official seal.

In the order of our majesty King Edward I

The king of the East orders that uniforms be made at once to suit our new musket divisions so in the case of charging the enemy, they may freely move around with their new weapon.

Along with this order aswell, the king also wants training as soon as the weapons are made at immediate delivery as soon as possible.

-Signed your majesty, King Edward the first.

The head of the weapons construction looked at the armor men and ordered.

"You are now uniform weavers. NOW GET MOVING!" Gordan ordered as he throws silk and cotton at them while they ran off to get busy with these uniforms for the North and Eastern Kingdoms.

Canterlot: Back Celestia had that pink mane.

The flag of Equestria waves in the air as the usual royal guards, (before they were disbanded temporary) were on their usual patrols when one of the guards spotted something.

"Hey.. Hey Sarge? Does that creature seem new to you?" Asked a private as the Sergeant came to his side.

"What seems new?" Sergeant donut asked.

"Well look sir!" The Private pointed as the Sergeant looked through his binoculars and saw.. A creature.

"What in Celestia's name? Get me two guards with me and inform the princess at once!" He ordered as the Private saluted and ran inside the castle as Sergeant Donut was met with other two guards and then they flew in a trio to confront the being.

The being looked up at them and froze as the three landed with two keeping their spears handy the being gulped considering that this was his first day on the job...

"IDENTIFY YOURSELF!" The Sergeant ordered. As the two guards pointed their spears at the being.

The being was now in panic mode, he could run at any moment but instead he has a message that he had to deliver or it'd be his head, also he literally did a entire oath on it so it'd be even worse, so he replied.

"I-I am Jack, Jack Smith sir.. I have a message from king Edward of the Eastern kingdom for... Princess Celestia?" Jack replied as the guards were a bit weirded out and lowered their spears for a second before they pointed them back, when a voice ordered.

"Stand down Sergeant, if anypony wish to sends a message to me they are no threat. If you are Mr. Smith?" Princess Celestia ordered as the pink maned Alicorn landed behind the trio of guards..

"N-no ma'am. I'm jus-"

"It's alright! I was just joking on the last one. I can tell it's your first day too." Celestia noticed while chuckled a little.

"H-how did you know ma'am?" Smith stuttered.

"A guess you could say because you seem like you haven't traveled before, that but also your name tag.." She answered which Smith sighed in relief while looking at his name tag that literally says. "First day on the job lol"

"But please tell me? Who's king Edward?" She asked.

The postman wasn't trained for this but he sucked up his breath and answered the best he could.

"My king, ma'am, is the ruler of the Eastern kingdom and rules the east of the Continent called Huma-rica I volunteered to come here since no one didn't and plus they offered extra pay that I needed for my Family. Ma'am."

His response was simple and clear.. But Celestia didn't know there was another continent and if there was then it must've kept itself so hidden yet so well.. But then again it was because she didn't ever thought of exploring the other side so it seems that whoever this king was, is certainly exposing and risking his kingdom for help.

"Hearing your answer and your decision to volunteer to deliver this message knowing that there may be danger that lied ahead, you have been place under my protection until further notice, but of course with it said, may I see the letter that your king has sent?" She asked as the postman gladly handed her the letter that he traveled far to see her opened to find out it wasn't a message.

It was a map and even a route from her nation to the Eastern kingdom! However there seemed to be three more kingdoms on this new continent.

Now she needs a idea of how to get diplomacy started with this new world and it's nations.

But until then, she has a lot of questions for Mr. Smith and a lot to explain to Luna and her ponies.

Ze Dinner, Yorktown, Eastern Kingdom.

As king Edward and general Norrington sat down while their sister is dressing herself for the occasion they kinda felt a bit distant.. I mean sure they're leaders of nations but one comes to wonder if the kingdoms they rule will even outlive them? After all they are but young men and now they started to think about their future.

Finally Edward looked at the outside night on the other side of window, he sees a fountain which reminded him that time that he, Hiduras, and Norrington used to play there before their father, Luther, had called him in the castle that was being constructed to tell them about the dividing of the lands.

He looked at Norrington as he was fiddling with the fork.

"Remember that time at the fountain?" Edward asked as Norrington stared at him.

"Yea? What about it?" Norrington replied.

"I remember the time that we and even Hiduras made a promise to watch over each other when we were promised these lands don't remember?" Edward reminded.

"Edward.. That is the most ridicules promised we made at that point! And now look around you, we're divided from kingdoms, Hiduras is a fucking tyrant, and now we happened to find out that when our father died that day he claims that the "creator" the one who placed us in this, Creator forsaken planet, THAT THERE WAS MORE THAN JUST US AS A RACE OF SENTIENCE! THAT ENDED UP BECOMING TRUE, FACT, HISTORY, AND ANYTHING ELSE RESEMBLING WITH TRUTH!" Norrington exclaimed as he breaks down deeper into a existential crisis.

"You know.. Maybe it's a blessing a disguise? After all these Pillars did claim they were hunting down a evil entity that somehow made landfall here on our lands without our knowledge. And if it turns out there is.. Well we are all fucked unless they have something against it." Edward pointed out. As Norrington just sat down in disbelief.

"Either way... If the pillars does say I quote the fact "Magic in heavy comprehension" than who knows what this race could do in a style and case of war! Then what!" Norrington concerningly asked while Edward sat for a moment in which his head popped a idea..

"What if we... Become colonies for this Equestria?" Edward suggested which dumbfounded Norrington..

"Colonies... IS THAT THE BEST YOU CAN COME UP WITH!" Norrington shouted.

"It's the only way Norrington, you don't have to if you want but I just feel it might be the right choice for my kingdom. After all if these ponies decides to turn on us then maybe.. Just maybe the people will have to will to fight back." Edward said gaining a advantaging idea.

"People? I'm sorry did you say people?" Norrington asked as he was not a fan of a public militia.

"You heard me, tomorrow at 12 o clock. Everyone in this nation is permitted and required to own a musket or weapon of their choosing for purposes of self defense. And if used in murder shall be the case of being placed he and relatives to death." Edward read from his scroll that he placed before his meeting with Norrington while Norrington got up from his chair and walked right infront of the window staring at his ship.

"Be my guest if you want Norrington, but sooner or later you will have to choose sides you know?"

Norrington got back to his seat and replied.
"Yea... And I choose freedom over subjugation."

Yorktown night

Captain Pilate was having fun with his new duty to escort and tour the group of new ponies around the town, the center was where is was interesting.

Starswirl was impressed with the inner city structures and the civility of the people and even some people introduced gifts and advices to the Pillars as the fascination continued the Pillars had a conversation.

"I have to say, this kingdom really has some impressive population. Even the people here are kind." Starswirl admitted as the peasant people offered bread to the bearded pony.

"You really think? They have a unique cuisine's here though... They really have use for meat unfortunately, but atleast they aren't cannibals I don't think atleast." Flash said as the group goes past the gates of the central part of city

"Cannibalism is actually outlawed here, in fact anyone who dares to eat another being that can speak and think are basically doomed to... Well have their home town burn to the ground." Pilate replied which kinda shock the Pillars.

"Isn't it tyrannical? I mean I know cannibalism is a terrible act even back in our country it is severely outlawed but not this drastic? Is it really necessary to burn down a entire town over one cannibal?" Somnam questioned.

"It is the kings final and last word on the subject. I even remember the time as a child that he announced that cannibals and the town of birth will be executed and burnt down, slate clean, gone, flat, presto. And then rebuilt." Pilate asserted on the matter.

Before Somnambula could respond to that they now arrived to the statue of Luther which made the group awed at it's glory.

"Welcome to Luther square, the pride of Humanity." Pilate introduced which the group was feeling very magical just being near the statue.

"If I ask? Who was Luther?" Rockhoof asked. Which Pilate went very neutral face along with his roman soldiers as they stared away somewhere which fueled the Pillar curiosity even more.

Finally the regiments local know-it-all spoke out and explained.

"Luther, or Luther the wise, is the founder of the four kingdoms and is known as the savior of humanity while also what is in this very statue, the staff, that can be opened by a Luther. However those who manages to get this staff will perish and die as only a Luther can hold it. In word he was the one who banished the Wendigos from these lands." The Know it all explained as Pilate rolled his eye.

"First of all private, do not speak out of term, second of all, like he said, only a Luther can open and wield the staff but the name itself is not to be mentioned or said. EVER!" Pilate asserted.

"But if the staff is powerful? Then why is the name itself a curse?" Somnam questioned.

"Reasons unknown we don't know, but what the king said is the last and final word." Pilate replied which Somnam and Starswirl looked at each other uncertainly..

"ANYWAYS! Without anymore questions with the wretched staff, lets move on to the castle, dinner is about to be served in the kings hall and he'll want to know more about your race and your country." Pilate said as the tour group started moving as the Pillars started speaking.

"Interesting how a weapon that saved these humans from destruction from the Wendigos is treated harshly? How could this be?" Starswirl questioned.

"Is it maybe because of fear?" Meadow attempted to answer but the Pillars and even herself shook their heads.

"Maybe guilt?" Flash thought but Starswirl was quick to respond.

"While they may have kicked the Wendigos out of these lands and towards Equestria, that would not be the case. After all the humans never knew we even existed at all!" Starswirl contemplated which Mistmane answered.

"Maybe one did, it might be the owner of that staff."

"King Edward?" Starswirl asked.

"No darling, Luther himself." Mistmane answered.

"How does he know about ponies?" Flash asked which she shook her head.

"I don't know but maybe he knew."

"Either way Mist, these humans really hates that staff and I intend on finding out why."

Canterlot, Dining room

Even Celestia wanted to know the other side of world, Jack Smith is escorted to the royal dining room at the expense of Celestia since the first thing was to introduce herself and her sister. Starting with Jack Smith since he would be the first human to set foot on a continent other than Huma-rica.

The doors opened, and Jack sits down and the Sergeant of the escort informs.

"The Princess will come shortly, she'll not be long before she asks you during dinner, until then enjoy the scenery."

The Escorts leaves the room leaving Jack with the dinner plates, looking around though he noticed that the plates and the utensils were not set sooo... While he's waiting he might as well do a little human work around the place in thanks for not getting his head sliced AND starting a war on accident.

While Jack Smith started to work, without anyone knowing, Luna was in her room balcony raising the moon when Celestia came inside her room.

"I see that you've been improving Lulu." Celestia smiled as Luna looked towards Celestia.

"I've been Tia, but I feel that there is something in the dream world that I have kept noticing." Luna informed which Celestia titled her head.

"What do you mean?" Celestia asked while sitting down on the bed.

"I've noticed that there are more doors than there were. When I first came in the world it was only a sizable amount of doors which were ponies."


"And then last night, I've noticed there was twice as more doors than I counted... (Goodbye years of counting I guess...) It's as if the entire world had a double intake of population!" Luna answered which Celestia started to scratch her mane nervously...

"Actually... I may have figured out why..." Celestia answered which Luna quickly rushed toward her sister in a begging pose.

"PLEASE TELL ME WHY THEN! I MUST KNOW!" Luna spoke which Celestia jerked her head which Luna stepped back.

"Sorry.. I'm just so stressed on having to both recount! And go into more doors!!!" Luna apologized which Celestia smiled.

"Follow me and I'll show you." Celestia answered as the two sisters started to head inside of the dining hall when they noticed a crowd of both guards and maids who happened to staring inside the dining room in fascination.

Before the captain of the guard, who was also watching, snapped out of it when he saw the two sisters.

"ALRIGHT CLEAR OUT!" He ordered as the maids and the guards cleared the way which made Celestia curious.

"What's with the crowd?" Celestia asked as everyone pointed at Jack Smith who went total overboard with cleaning and polishing a entire room just after setting up utensils which made Celestia Jaw dropped.

"Ah there, all done. :D" Jack Smiled after getting the last crumb in the room that sparkled so bright, ehhh nevermind.

"Mr. Smith? What have you been doing?" Celestia asked as Luna stared at the new creature. Not panicking or being shocked about it at all... Hehe nope...

"Ehhh, sorry overboard much? Kinda use to cleaning since it's a tradition in my home town of Arcelia." He explained which Celestia started to sit down on the dining table.

"You didn't really needed to though? You are a guest of honor after all and there is the matter of the new kingdoms." Celestia said when Luna noticed new kingdoms.

"New kingdoms!? (are you serious....) Are you saying there are new kingdoms?" Luna questioned when Smith answered.

"Actually.. It's a new continent. I can show you the map." Smith insisted as he grabbed a huge paper.

"I don't think that's neces-" Luna was interrupted when he got a huge ass map and placed it on the table showing a huge continent which in both shock and surprise Luna dropped her Jaw and then head first on the table passed out.

"Uhhh... Is she going to be fine?" He asked.

"I'm sure she'll wake up... Great Faust...."

As the dinner night progressed, and Luna finally waking up, the two sides would exchange questions from left and right with Luna asking about the population which he answered in the millions, Celestia would ask about who's friendly and who's bad Smith answered with friendly being the Southern, Eastern and Northern Kingdoms, with the enemy being the sketchy Western Empire...

Smiths question would be this... Why are they referred as Princesses like Princess Elizabeth? They're response was neutral and silence.

Yorktown, dinner

Meanwhile in Yorktown the Pillars were seated in the dining room in the king and the two siblings presence, a cheers here and there were made in a celebration of knowing that two races of sentient beings are now in contact with each other.

But anyways as the dinner session started Edward asked the Pillars about other nations they know about, Starswirl answered the question with the Griffonian empire, Olenian kingdom, and a divided clusterfuck called the Changeling hives. (The bugs are divided in this point) Oh and Arantigian empire in southwestern Griffonia. Along with the recently discovered River pony nations.

Norrington asked about technology, Flash Sentry was quick to answer with being only spears with high ranks having swords only, and sometimes even the princesses of Equestria.

Elizabeth asked about the rulers of their nation of Equestria, and Meadow and Somnambula answered with being Celestia and Luna being the immortal Alicorns of the land which made the rulers dumbfounded on the information, but not just immortality, but also the fact when Meadow mentioned that one can raise the sun and the other raising the moon, not that though, they both rule a single country with a peaceful goal... It envied Edward as he wished his Siblings were that cooperative to the point that they can rule almost a entire continent unlike his brother Hiduras...

However that was when the doors were opened with a messenger who was wearing a black formal uniform which made the kings stomach burn...

"Your majesty.. Letter from the 1st musket brigade..." The messenger said as he handed the letter to the king. Which after he read it, he stare at the pillars.

"Tomorrow morning you must leave and warn your beloved leaders..." Edward informed which Starswirl replied with a stare.

"What happened..." He responded.

"We.... We are at war."
