Once Upon a Time
in the lands south of Equestria....
There lived a race of Storm creatures, named as such due to their tenacity the o storm through targets. They had access to advanced technological airships which they used to attack and plunder all lands they came across....
They were lead by a mighty warlord, a ruthless warrior who went by the Storm King, under his leadership they conquered various lands and laid waste to a dozen more
The Storm King was after conquest of the entire world and was interested in finding magical artefacts, hoping to find the one and the magic that would make him strong enough to do just that......
10 years ago.....
Klugetown, a dark dirty mountain town built around the skeleton of a dragon that was impaled upon the mountain a thousand years. A place where pickpockets, thieves and conmen roamed free and the only law came from the local crime bosses.
It was a day just like any other where the citizens went along their way, usually trying not to get robbed or doing the robbing. Then suddenly the sky began filling with sky skiffs or black and purple. The citizens grew concerned and began running to the inside of their homes and the stores.
As the skiffs landed out came hordes of Storm creatures, large strong bulky creatures with black armor (which had two lined light blue symbols somewhere), masks and a lot of white fur. They then began trashing windows and stalls in search of something.
The main skiff landed and out with his hands behind his back and a stern face was a bipedal creature larger than the others. He had black gauntlets, black short sleeved armor with the symbol of the army on it, grey skin which could be seen on his face, claws and feet and he had a tail.
A brave and foolish Minotaur came up to the creature smirking. "So you are the one they call the Storm King? Not exactly impressive I must say, I bet I can kick your butt and maybe I should take that crown for myself and use your pelt for a new fur coat?" The Minotaur laughed out loud looking at the creature known as the Storm King whose face and demeanour had not changed.
The citizens gasped at the foolishness of the Minotaur and the Storm creatures went to protect their king. The Strom King put up a hand to stop his army from interfering.
The Minotaur went to charge at him with his fists but effortless the Storm King caught them and crushed them with his claws. The Minotaur began screaming which went worse as the Storm King pulled his arms to his back painfully.
The Strom king then kicked him to the ground and then used his claws to rip of the Minotaur' horns right off.
"Take him inside, perhaps twenty years in our dungeon will teach him humility, if not then will I am sure I have a place for a stuffed Minotaur..." The Storm King ordered his troops and they nodded dragging him to one of their skiffs.
"Anyone else feeling brave?" the Storm King asked in a polite tone looking around and was met with terrified stares.
"Sorry about the mess me and my soldiers are making here, you can bill me later... I will probably not bother to pay it but you can still bill me!" The Storm King told the citizens around him in a pleasant tone.
The Storm King looked around and grinned when he spotted brown robed creature rushing into a wooden hut.
The creature once he rushed inside his home took off his robe to show he was a brown furred gargoyle with a long beard, golden crown, golden belt, green sleeveless tunic and a brown beard with grey aged lines.
He dug up a long box as the Storm King kicked his door open. "Well if it isn't the legendary Scorpan, the one who long ago invaded Equestria with his brother Tirek only to turn his back on him for the stupid ponies..." the Storm King asked with a smirk as he went inside.
Scorpan glared at the Storm King as he charged at the Storm King only to be tossed aside effortlessly. "Disappointing, I expected something better from Scorpan and I think the Minotaur outside was stronger. I guess the years have not been kind to you or your time with the ponies made you weak..." the Storm King told Scorpan with a bored drawl.
He opened the box and opened it up to reveal a black staff with a light blue gem in the middle of it. He lifted it up in awe as he felt the electricity within it. He lifted it to the air as he caused a huge electrical storm which blasted the huts to bits and creature a huge storm cloud which left his soldiers in awe.
"The Staff of Sacanas, said to create and control storm clouds better than any Pegasus... I desired it so much I made sure that my armor would match it... Long have I searched for it, try to find where Starswirl the Bearded hid it. It was only recently did I get my hands on a journal of his saying he gave it to you..." The Storm King said in awe.
"It was a token of friendship..." Scorpan muttered at the Storm King defiantly. The Storm King then looked at him annoyed.
"Friendship, what a waste of time! Friends are people who take your time away from you and make you compromise your goals, if you did not waste your time with friendship then you and Tirek would become legendary conquerors of Equestria. Friendship allowed you to betray your own brother and your own goals and self respect. You threw it all away for... friendship!" The Storm King told him sneering the last word.
"With this I am truly the Storm King! I will use this to conquer the world and then I will become the legend you were meant to be!" the Storm King told him shouting to the heavens. The Storm King then summoned his soldiers to him.
"Well good job guys, let's reward another successful mission by going out for a bite." The Storm King told his troops with a cheery tone as he then spotted a Klugetown Friend Cockatrice restaurant.
"Who is up for some KFC? Afterwords we can put the Staff to use by invading the Hippogriff Kingdom!" the Storm King asked with cheers from his troops. They then marched to the restaurant leaving Scorpan trying to get himself up from his spot.
"Your desire for power and conquest as your little understanding of friendship shall be your undoing Storm King..." Scorpan muttered as he made plans to try and get his hut rebuilt.
But now the Storm King had the Staff of Sacanas and there would be dark times ahead...
