[Herald] The Unicorn Herd [Herald]


Inspired by your encounter with the Crystal unicorns, you choose to wander the cool woods instead of the beach. The sun was now at its peak and you were beginning to bake, even with the soft ocean spray upon your skin.

You found that you were not alone in your choice of shady places to rest. You find a large black mare resting beneath the pines.

She shifts over on her mossy bed, allowing you room to sit down as well. "Hello. My name is Zzala'frasi. Finding it a bit warm out too?" You return her introduction and agree about the summer heat.

"The weather is almost always perfect here," Zzala explains, "But every now and then, SunBlind allows the magic to slip a little, and if we unicorns are not quick to catch on and rebalance the magics, we can have storms as bad as hurricanes, or weather like right now, hot and sweltering. But I prefer this to the storms."

You agree. Besides, it was pleasant to take refuge within the pine woods, the scent was so sharp and clean, and this mossy patch was most comfortable.

Suddenly the stillness was broken by a tiny white mare with a golden mane and tail.

She bounded over Zzala's back and out of nowhere, streamers and confetti began to fall from the trees. You stare in amazement, but Zzala just sighs and smiles gently at the smaller Crystal. "I the heat hasn't prevented you from being your usual self, Tashien."

The white mare giggled, "Nope. I say, why lie around when there's fun to be had!" She began to prance about the clearing. You sneak one of the streamers into your pocket as a memento, you'll never come across a streamer quite like this one ever again.

As you hid the streamer, a small stallion bounded out from the trees. Bracing his legs he came to a stop, as startled to see the assembled group as the group was startled to see him.

He shook his mane and snorted as Tashien exclaimed, "Fra'tuni! I wondered where you disappeared off to."

The stallion grinned. "Well, it got so hot in the sun I decided to seek shelter in the trees. I knew of this prefect little glade with a clear stream and sweet birdsong on the air and was looking for it...unfortunately I seem to have forgotten where it was. Who is this?"

This last question was about you, and he tilted his head to one side to get a better look. Zzala does the honours of the introduction and the stallion nods his greeting. "I've met a few of the other travellers that have come through here. Hope you aren't finding the weather too unbearable."

You reply that it was indeed hot, but it was just perfect here in the forest and the three unicorns nod in agreement. You don't mention the fact that anywhere would be perfect so long as a unicorn were present.
