Zack looks pensive "Both plans have merit, but we should take this slow if we move to fast the griffons will try to find a way to use it as an excuse to start a war, besides I know Bahamut he is a just ruler he won't act without good cause and the Diamond dogs are more a nuisance than a war threat." Zack scratches his head "Both plans should be done but our top priority should be morale, hold a ceremony to honor the fallen make sure everypony knows Celestia is ok and you'll run things to the best of your ability and I'm pretty sure there are more than a few ponies out there that think Nightmare Moon just took over Equestria." Zack shook his head as he finished

Luna nods. "A wise plan."

Songbird shakes his head. "Half measures will not cut it. The griffons will see it as indecisiveness, a sign of weakness. The dragons are ruled though strength and if Bahmut shows weakness by showing us charity he will be over thrown by the empress and his place filled with a more aggressive dragon. The dogs to are far more dangerous then you suspect, but it's clear you will not see reason yet. Till then I will do what I can with what I have." He bows to Luna. "Princess." Then walks out.

Dashing Orange glares after the General. "That pony will not be happy till all of Equestria's POSSIBLE threats have been subjected. Ah well, thank you for being reasonable! Equestria's ponies need to feel like there lives can return to normal as much as they need to be protected from outside threats. We will do what we can to make sure Equestria returns to normal as soon as possible."

Luna sighs. "We will all hope for that."

*We are at the end of the story. If there is anything else you want to do, do it or ask for it now, otherwise put up any final in character words you want. After that I will give you the campaign notes from way back set things up for the sequel.*

just then the door burst open "Zack!"

"Zach? What are you doing here, I asked you to keep an eye on May"

"That's why I'm here, shes gone into labor. Its time!" Zach turns to the princess "sorry for the intrusion Princess but this seemed urgent"

by now Zack had hobbled over to Zach and grabbed his collar "take me to her, now!"

"lucky for you I just recently mastered ShadowStep" Zach said grabbing Zack around his shoulders and began sinking into the shadows "please excuse us Princess" he said with a bow as he disappeared completely

upon arriving Zack would find that it was over, he tears up at the sight of May laying on the hospital bed cradling two bundles ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tQHiAGB_SfY )

"twins Zack" She said as Zack steps forward and sits next to the bed and reaches out to the silver unicorn foal "a filly" she said as Zack brushes his daughters hair with his hoof then looks to the burgundy pegasus foal "a colt" Zack smiles at the two foals "so have you thought of any more names?"

"lets use the ones we agreed on," he looked to his son "Jack" then to his daughter "and Tak" May then asks if he wants to hold them, to which he nods so she passes them to him and he begins to let the tears fall.

{Zack's Epilogue, done}

*I still don't get why you use human/high fantasy names for ponies, but hey there your characters.*

 This game has run from the 28th of December last year to 23ed of September. The over arching plot has not yet been resolved, but the story of 'A New Nightmare' is. I will say quickly that though this was not the ideal "best ending", its FAR from the worst! So congratulations on getting a pretty positive resolution to the story!

As a fun addendum to this campaign here is the original note pad I wrote up before starting the campaign. Going into it these where the main plot points I had set in mind for the story.


Discord turned the changlings from love feeders to hate feeders to escape. Chrysalis has kidnapped Luna and taken her form. RD and FS are under Discord's spell. Celstia will go mad from all the death and betrayal as the nation falls apart. Spike actauly is Discord.

As an additional fun side note, the character of General Songbird was originally just to be a mildly obstructive authority figure so that Shining Armor would not have to come off as a stick in the mud when it came time for military authorizes to actuary give orders and reprimands to Zach as an enlisted officer who would be under the jurisdiction of military authorities (and because Celestia would rapidly become to A moral to serve as a proper commanding officer.) His role was expanded when a none evil antagonist was needed, since Zack had made it a point of challenging his authority when given orders by the General.

Most other plot points where determined purely by player action.

As a final fun fact, the Flimflam brothers where originally going to make an appearance selling a changeling detection servos to the frightened massive, but things spiraled out of control to quickly for them to show up after the changelings where reveled.


Thanks for playing and stay tuned for the next game, coming soon!

*I give an explanation for that in the second chapter of my FIMfiction story but I'll have Zack say it here.

"Dad said it was because he wanted us to be free to chose our own destiny"
Zack to May, on the reason his name is Zack Marcus

That dose not really explain the human name. It would make more sense then if his name was something ponieish, but none committal. Like Apple Bloom or Sweetie Belle. There names have something to do with there abilities, but are none committal to there talents. Rarity, likewise has a name related to her CM (gem finding), but not to her chosen destiny (high fashion design).  Still, as I said its your call.

Oh and as a quick note, before we get to the next story, the next game is going to be a low power, low combated game. Because of that I am going to be even tighter on the powers, so no none show power spells and NO blood line powers or mystical abilities! Show powers only! If that dose not work for any of your current characters then make a new one before the next game. Oh and the game will take place 20 years along the time line, so keep that in mind.

I was hoping it would be a fair bit of a time jump, this works perfectly with who I want to play as, though the power LV. restriction is a little bit of an encumbrance but it's nothing I can deal with.

"till the next adventure"
