THE PROMISED BAPTISM WITH HOLY GHOST"And when the day of Pentecost was fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance. And there were dwelling at Jerusalem Jews, devout men, out of every nation under heaven. Now when this was noised abroad, the multitude came together, and were confounded, because that every man heard them speak in his own language. And they were all amazed and marvelled, saying one to another, Behold, are not all these which speak Galilaeans? And how hear we every man in our own tongue, wherein we were born?

A Story Inspired by Sergeant Sprinkle's "Cupcakes" Fanfic
This work of fiction contains material that may be sensitive to some readers (murder, gore and death). Viewer discretion is advised.
"There is evil within the hearts of all ponies. Such is the balance of nature. Good can only be prevalent for so long before Evil musters its forces, and seizes upon the heart twisting friendships into war, loyalty into deceit, and kindness into unadultered hate."

"AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH! AAAAAAAAHH, AAAAAAAAAAAH!" Screams echoed through the cloud palace of Rainbow Dash's home, the filly startled wide awake in a cold sweat, terror surging through her veins. Nightmares. Again. The seventh time this month. And it was always the same one. The one with the 'cupcakes'. Flashes of memory lanced through her head. Wings being hacked off, then ripped from their sockets. Needles plunged into her beating heart, adrenaline injected into her bod
Space Cadet RTS Concept: ConsortiumThe Consortium's approach to war mirrors its approach to all things: the pursuit of economic efficiency. War is expensive and disrupts trade, and therefore the Consortium seeks to fight short wars where they emerge with a favorable settlement. While Consortium military corporations occasionally involve themselves in long-term confrontations, these are almost always small affairs, where what they charge their clients is always more than the costs of fighting. Large-scale conflicts are a drain on resources and are never profitable, and so the Consortium's military doctrine involves ending these conflicts decisively and quickly, while keeping costs as low as possible. Thusly, military corporations working exclusively for the Consortium have developed their forces to deploy rapidly in overwhelming force. Oftentimes, the Consortium will eschew planetary engagement in favor of orbital bombardment. Uniquely among the great powers, the Consortium's military and diplomatic efforts are requiredSpace Cadet RTS Concept: Consortium6 months ago in Settings More Like This

The air was warm, the sun was shining, and everypony in Ponyville was having a glorious day. The town square was bustling and crowded and busy ponies filled the streets. All the pony folk seemed to have somewhere specific to be. All except Rainbow Dash; her place was in the sky. She tore freely through the air, speeding one way and the next, buzzing the tree tops and racing the wind. The blue pegasus swooped over a schoolyard, much to the delight of the children, then climbed several hundred feet and dove, streaking downward as fast as she could. Seconds before hitting the ground, her wings flew open and she pulled up back into the clear blue. Rainbow felt alive.
Suddenly, Dash remembered that she had somewhere to be; she was

The dynammic duo had been at it again.
"Vi, follow the plan!"
"Plan? I don't need a plan!"
"Vi! God damnit!" Caitlyn exclaimed as her partner launched into battle without so much as warning or precision... again. Caitlyn laid out a couple traps and, before she could blink, Vi was zooming back.
"I lied! Run!" She said, grabbing her partners arm. Caitlyn grabbed her hat and gun in one arm, as the other arm was preoccupied by being tugged out of socket. She heard all 3 of her traps go off and looked up to see a few champions tugging them open to get their legs out of them, grumbling their displeasure. Caitlyn smirked as Vi dragged her back into base.
"We're fine now, Vi." She said, pulling Vi to a stop and tugging her arm out of the iron grip. Vi turned around and smirked at the gunman.
"I know. Thanks to me!" She grinned all quirky. Caitlyn rolled her big brown eyes.

Patron God(s): The Masked Man
The Central Intelligence Agency began its life as a replacement for the OSS, the intelligence agency of the United States. Privy to all of the occult knowledge at the Americans' disposal, the CIA nonetheless resisted corruption for decades, loyally serving the American government. However, the CIA went rogue at an uncertain point in the early 21st century, declaring war on the United States and all of mankind.
It was not known when the corruption of the CIA began, but records indicate that a mysterious mercenary known only as "the Masked Man" began informing on CIA targets as early as 1998. The Masked Man quickly became the go-to informant for the CIA, providing crucial information on SS and KGB activity that allowed the CIA to thwart German and Soviet plots in the Middle East. It was around this point

This world was born in the 80s. The fear that Able Archer was genuine threat terrified the Soviets, so they struck first. A limited nuclear strike destroyed bases and cities across the West, and several weapons were detonated in the Van Allen Belts, wiping out the various satellite defences and weapons. Two massive conventional invasions were unleashed, one upon Western Europe and one upon North America.
Massive electromagnetic pulses and the destruction of satellite defences saw the capacity for the US to return nuclear war in kind massively reduced.
Peoples Republic of CymalineOne of the most feared forces in the Inner Sphere, the People’s Republic of Cymaline successfully united the chaotic, disorganized post-Collapse systems it currently comprises with blinding speed and efficiency. Having defeated Acadia, Solanum and the Kassel Confederation in their wars, Cymaline plays a key role as a Conseil ally and a serves as a hub for communist forces in the Inner Sphere. Politically, Cymaline is the most powerful orthodox Marxist state in the galaxy.Peoples Republic of Cymaline5 months ago in Settings More Like This
The systems that make up modern Cymaline were historically a hodgepodge of early American, Soviet and German colonies. The more developed worlds were utterly ravaged by the Collapse; most worlds that survived were penal colonies and dumping grounds for unruly ethnic groups. With their mutual oppressors vanquished, these groups quickly took to fighting amongst themselves, only uniting when mutual threats arise every now and then. Two factions eventually arose to prominence in the 2400s: Solanum and Cymaline. Both

As the blade pierced Pinkie Pie's chest, Rainbow Dash's sanity came sweeping back to her, and she immediately regretted what she did. Trembling, she dropped the bloodied blade, but it was too late, the damage had already been done.
Red liquid poured from the huge gash in Pinkie's chest, and all she could do was utter, "But why " before she collapsed on the ground; her eyes a blank stare.
Rainbow Dash stared at Pinkie Pie in disbelief. "Oh god what have I done?" Her heart began to pound in her chest as she made sense of her horrible act. She had just assaulted one of her friends like the very monster in her dreams did to her.
Panicking, she fell onto her back and started to crawl away from the ghastly scene. Her mind raced with uncertainty of what do to, until finally she let her instincts take over. She stood up, spread her wings, and flew out the door screaming, "HELP! SOMEONE HELP ME!!!!"

The year is 27,512. Industrial civilization, along with both the failed attempts to reindustrialize and the varous salvage civilizations that followed it ended in failure long ago for a mix of complex environmental, economic and simply resource-based reasons.
A second high civilization exploiting both ruins and much of the remaining resources led by the heirs of the west, in Latin America along with a China that had gone back to being ruled by Emperors during the long night failed again. A third such civilization, now using both ruins and esoteric technologies to use fusion power failed yet again, but unlike the previous two didn't involve largescale nuclear wars punctuating the crises. After that were 5,000 years of failed attempts to reindustrialize, followed by ten millenia of working from ruins of decreasing wealth before humanity settled into a stable state.

In the 43rd Millenium the Imperium of Man died.
The galaxy was beset by war as it had ever been. In the Octavius System the war between the Tyranids and the Orks escalated, transforming the worlds within into charnel houses of destruction and consumption, the Forces of Chaos continued to pound on the Gates of Cadia and beneath many worlds the silent armies of the Necrons stirred to the sounds of conflict.
No-one knew how the Golden Throne failed but the portents were there. The Tarots spoke of destruction and terror and in vain many leaders of the Imperium journeyed to the holy seat of the Emperor in hopes of divining what threat could be approaching. The death of the Emperor of Man cracked Holy Terra apart, obliterating all who walked upon its surface and, with his death, smothering the light of the Astronomicon.

Records on human history prior to the rise of the Solar Federation are scant, given the great collapses that occurred between then and the modern era. What have survived are mostly secondary sources, copies of Federation historical documents made during the Imperial Era. Some of these sources’ details contradict one another, which can be attributed to author bias, imperfect access to information, imperfect copying, or some combination of the three. The most detailed source on pre-Federation history are from The Ages of Man, an Martian-era historical text made in 2586 BFC. This text claims that human civilization has collapsed three times prior to the rise of the Federation, the greatest being the Ash Winter, which occurred around 10000 BFC. While the most reliable text available to modern historians, the authors of The Ages of Man admit that they lacked reliable sources, and as they were uncomfortable with conjecture they only p

Yes. Some have fled, and most are dead.
Most of them, shot in the head.
Some can break, and some wont wake
As they come for him, their lives he takes
Why do they break and do not wake?
Because the Master Chief makes no mistake
Some are tall, some are small

Bullets flying everywhere

Appearance: Mostly Trotsworth's design, but with golden war boots instead of gold pony shoes.
Personality: The stereotypical good king and mentor, similar to Mufasa or Obi Wan Kenobi.
Voice: Deep and gentle sounding. AnathjacksonIII had a good performance as Lord Solaris in some of Philsterman's videos. I personally would cast Liam Neeson for this role.
Differences from Princess Celestia…
He has the title of Lord rather than Prince. This is because his version of Equestria is a lordship rather than a principality.
He's a little sterner.
His subjects still speak of his past triumphs in battle.
When writing letters to Lord Solaris, people always start the letter with "Most Honorable" rather than "Dear".
His spells use more fire effects.
He employs only mares for his royal guard, because he doesn't trust stallions to do the job properly (That's what he says anyway…)

[VME] History of Japanese Preternatural WarfareOriginally posted by Foreign Policy Magazine[VME] History of Japanese Preternatural Warfare4 months ago in Settings More Like This
A nation steeped in ancient tradition, the Japanese were no strangers to the preternatural. Early encounters with the preternatural doubtless shaped traditional Japanese beliefs about the preternatural, and many Japanese "superstitions" were later confirmed by preternatural science in the 20th and 21st centuries. The Japanese religion of Shintoism is of particular importance. Unlike the Abrahamic religions of Eurasia, Shinto's approach to the preternatural is neutral. The kami, spiritual manifestations of the interconnecting energy of the universe connected to objects and individuals, are doubtless a very simplistic and overly romantic interpretation of the nature of gastplasm. Indeed, the Japanese term for gastplasm is kami. While this implies a great understanding of the preternatural in ancient Japan, in Shintoism kami can be either malevolent or benevolent, a notion that has been thoroughly discredited.
