Ambrose: I see. This does not bode well at all.
After Twilight bravely defeated Rattlebones, with the help of her new fairy friend, Flitter, our heroes made it to the Headmaster's Office and told all that transpired on Unicorn Way.
Applejack: What does that varmint want in Unicorn Way, is my question.
Ambrose: I'm not sure, but we must be cautious of his doings, never let your guard down. You've all done a magnificent job sorting out the trouble on the street, but now it's time we move on.
Gamma's Voice: But first
Gamma then flee into the office from the other door leading....somewhere else.
Gamma: I am pleased to announce that your enrollment papers have been accepted by our Enrollment Registrar, Mr. Lincoln.
Rainbow Dash: Meaning?
Ambrose: Meaning this: Welcome now, young wizards, to the Ravenwood School of Magical Arts!
Soon enough, our heros busted in cheers knowing that they have been accepted in Ravenwood. Ambrose, then gave Twilight a map, and the group, a compass for each.
Ambrose: All Ravenwood students must be issued their own magical map, and compass.
Pinkie: Ooooh what's so magical about them?
Ambrose: Whenever you leave to another area, the map will turn into the map of said area. And the compass will always lead you to wherever you wish to go.
Majority of the group stared at awe towards the magical map and compass.
Ambrose: Now then, there are a total of 7 teachers all for you, there are also student dormitories assigned to you on campus, find a student by the name, Simon and he will help.
Spike: Just one question.
Ambrose: Yes, Spike?
Spike: Where is Ravenwood again? Y'know so it won't forget!
Rarity: I believe the tunnel is in front of your tower, right?
Ambrose: That is correct, Rarity. If you would like, you could use the compass if you wish.
Twilight: No, where good. Remember girls, it's the tunnel we came out of, when we first arrived here. Now come on.
And so they did, they headed out and quickly found the tunnel leading to Ravenwood. Once they came out, they saw a busy village filled with wizards of all type, and magic all around. They then looked at the schools and easily figured out which one it is, from their
Flitter: You guys go on ahead and look for your teachers, I'll stay here. I guarantee orientation will take about, 5 minutes. So 5 minutes meet me back here at the tunnel.
Rainbow Dash: Sounds good to me. Let's get to it.
So they all split up and went out to find their teachers. Rainbow Dash found the Storm School easily so she entered. It was a small classroom with symbols and signs of Storm magic, as well as the average class seats, and chalkboard. In front of her was the professor, who appeared to be a small frog with a purple top hat, and a purple and yellow garb.
Professor: Ah, you must be our newest student, welcome to the School of Storm also known as Divination, where students can become wonderful diviners!
Rainbow Dash: Thanks, so uh you're my teacher?
Professor: Professor, my dear, And yes, I am Professor Halston Balestrom, master inventor, and of course Professor of Storm Magic.
Rainbow Dash(intrigued): Go on....
Professor Balestrom: Who else can master the power of the storms and the seas? Anyone who can harness their creativity!
Rainbow Dash: Ok I am SO sold! Professor Balestrom, you won't be disappointed! I'm gonna be the best student you have!
Professor Balestrom: I look forward to that offer my dear, When the time is right, I will summon you to my class, and I shall teach you how to UNLEASH YOUR INNER THUNDER!
Rainbow Dash: I look forward to THAT!
Meanwhile with Rarity, she managed to find her school, being the School of Ice. Due to her being an Ice Wizard, she doesn't notice the chilly temperature. Rarity, then came face to face with an old fairy wearing the colors of ice, she can only deduce that this fairy could be the Ice Professor.
Professor: Welcome dear, I am Lydia Greyrose, your Ice Magic Professor.
Rarity: A pleasure to meet you, Professor Greyrose, I am Rarity and I would like to learn about ice, more then mere sculptures.
Professor Greyrose: Very well deary, but kept this in mind: Ice Magic, or Thaumaturgy isn't for the impatient or flighty! My goodness, no! You'll need to study hard to learn Ice Magic, but I guarantee you'll be great at it, and I'll be here to help you when you need it!
Rarity: Oh, that would be absolutely delightful of you, Professor!
Professor Greyrose: When the time comes my dear, I will summon you for your next lesson. There's so much to learn about Ice!
Rarity: Thank you kindly, Professor Greyrose, I will be the finest of your students!
After orientation is over for Rarity, she went back to the entrance to meet with Flitter. Meanwhile with Spike, he went to find his teacher to what, CLEARLY is the Fire School. He then came face to face with the professor of the school, a tall flame haired woman wearing an orange robe to match.
Professor: Welcome, young dragon, to the School of Fire. I am Madame Falmea, your Professor.
Spike: Hi! I'm Spike!
Professor Falmea: Welcome, Spike. I can already see you have the spark inside of you.
Spike(blushing): Aww, come on now, you're making me blush!
With a small chuckle from Falmea, she began her orientation of the Fire School.
Professor Falmea: Here I instruct students how to be powerful Pyromancers, but fire can be quite dangerous. We must not be rash, lest we destroy that which we achieve.
Spike: Seems fair, fire CAN be dangerous, but also helpful.
Professor Falmea: That is correct. When the time is right, I will summon you for your next lesson. I'm always up for fanning the flames so students can learn more about Pyromancy
Spike: I won't disappoint!
With that Spike left the schoolhouse and went back to Flitter. Next, Twilight went to find the Death School....though unlike the rest, she's having a hard time doing so. Instead she sees a GAPING CRATER in between the Myth, and Fire school. Then a young wizard came up to the confused alicorn.
Wizard: Have you come looking for the Death School?
Twilight: Uh..yeah, have you seen it?
Wizard: I'm afraid you're looking at it. This gaping chasm is all that's left, after it was torn from Ravenwood.
Twilight: What happened?
Wizard: Word has it that Malistaire, the Death Professor, caused it to disappear. No one knows where he sent if off to, but you'll find tons of rumors around town about it.
Twilight: But, that's crazy! Who's teaching the Death students?
Wizard: That would be me! I'm Malorn Ashthorn. I don't mean to boast, but I was Malistaire's top student. Now I'm pretty much all that's left, so I'm teaching the new students.
Twilight: Well, I'm a new student now, so will you teach me?
Malorn: Of course! I'll teach you all about death spells or Necromancy. My pet crow, Shadow will summon you when you're ready, right Shadow?
Shadow: CAW! CAW!
Twilight: All right then.
So then she trotted back to Flitter just like the rest. Meanwhile with Pinkie Pie, she went happily jumped her way to the Myth School. She then came face to face with a bald man wearing a yellow robe, and blue shoes. He then looks gloomily down at Pinkie Pie.
Pinkie: Hi! I'm Pinkie Pie, an I'm here t-
Professor: Let me guess, another conjure want-to-be taking the Ravenwood tour?
Pinkie: That's me!
Professor: Ohhhh how quaint.
He then shakes his head in frustration, and knowing Pinkie Pie, he's in for a long semester with one of the most hyper active ponies on Equestria.
Professor: Fine. You may refer to me as, Professor Cyrus Drake and i-
Pinkie: Drake? Ooooh do I know a Drake, a meany Drake. He calls himself Malistaire, do you know him?
Professor Drake(sighs): Yes. He's my brother. Now then, if you wish to "attempt" to learn Myth Magic, I will summon you when I think you're ready. Now, leave me alone.
Pinkie: Aww but no one wants to be alone!
Professor Drake: Well, I want to be alone. Now please, leave me alone.
She then bounces out of the room, and went back to Flitter.
Professor Drake: Ohhhh this is going to be a long semester with THAT pony.
And finally with Fluttershy, she made her way to the Life Schoolhouse and went face to face with a cow wearing a green robe.
Fluttershy: Oh...um excuse me, are you my teacher?
Professor: I am. Welcome to the School of Life, I am Moolinda Wu, Professor of the School of Life. Here we celebrate the living ever-green power of creation and vitality.
Fluttershy: How wonderful!
Professor Wu: If you listen closely, you can hear Life Magic all around.
Professor Wu: But of course. Just a few notes can lift one's troubles, purify one's spirit, and restore life.
Fluttershy: That really does sound wonderful!
Professor Wu: There is much more I can teach you, but it will have to wait until you are ready.
Fluttershy: Thank you, Professor, you won't be disappointed.
Finally the group finally met back to Flitter at the entrance.
Flitter: So, what do you think about your classes?
Rainbow Dash: My teacher was awesome! I'm definitely gonna like this school!
Rarity: Which surprises me, knowing Rainbow doesn't like school at all.
Rainbow Dash: Classes are boring, I admit, but I think I'm gonna like the Storm School.
Applejack: Yeah, yeah, well while you have have your teachers, I can't even find mine! Heck I can't even find the balance school!
???: Excuse me, but did you say you were looking for the Balance teacher?
They turned looking for the voice, only to see before them a dog wearing a red top hat, monocle, and a red suit.
Applejack: Uh...yeah, who's asking?
Dog: Arthur Wethersfield, at your service. I the Balance Professor, and I come from Marleybone, a completely different from Wizard City. As a lad, I always enjoyed magic, but no one practices magic in Marleybone, so I left to study magic in Ravenwood.
Arthur: 10 years later I traveled to Krokotopia then came back, to teach students, such as yourself, Balance magic, otherwise known as "Sorcery" which specializes in the balance of all things.
Applejack: Balance of all things huh? Are ya gonna teach me something like that?
Arthur: But of course! Though it is more advanced than the other schools, and is harder to master, but it's power is unimaginable! When the time is right, I'll summon to teach you everything I know, cheers!
He then waved to the supposed balance student, and the group went back to the Commons.
Applejack: Well, about time! Unlike all of you, I gotta do some hard work ta earn my spell.
Rainbow Dash: I guess....
Unbeknownst to them, Twilight wasn't listening, for she was in deep thought.
Spike: What's a matter, Twilight?
Twilight: The Death School, Malistaire tore it from the campus.
Spike: Oh yeah, that big gaping chasm near my school. That was Malistaire? Hmm I wonder what he did with it?
Twilight: They say there are rumors around town about it, so maybe I'll find out soon.
Spike: Yeah. If it's not in Ravenwood, it could be somewhere else.
They then went inside the Headmaster's Office to speak with him about their experiences.
Ambrose: Oh good, now you should know where your classes are. I do hope you like your new teachers.
Pinkie: I don't know, if you ask me, my teacher is kinda a party pooper.
Gamma: Yes, all wizards get that same reaction when meeting Cyrus, but rest assured Pinkie, you will grow on him. Cyrus is one of the best teachers we have at Ravenwood, though he maybe less enthusiastic about new students, he will soon learn to be fond of them.
Ambrose: Well said, Gamma. Now then, as a reward, here are new spells for you. Remember to put them in your deck
Ambrose then gave the group the following cards.
Elemental Blade for Applejack
Lightning Strike for Rainbow Dash
Freeze for Rarity
Fireblade for Spike
Death Trap for Twilight
Golem Minion for Pinkie Pie
And Minor Blessing for Fluttershy
And everyone then put their new spells in their deck.
Flitter: And for a reward from me, I'll heal you when needed in battle. My card is a little weak, but it'll improve during our journey.
Spike: Just like us, we'll improve more during the journey too.
Ambrose: That's the way of Wizards my friends. Now then, I have one more requests if you're up for it.
The Group: Sure!
Ambrose: Excellent, you have all demonstrated that you are capable and unafraid. Go speak to Sergeant Muldoon in Olde Town, I would like to see what you all can do.
Applejack: Sure beats doing nothing anyway. Where's Olde Town?
Ambrose: Go through the Shopping District and find the Olde Town gate. When you see him, show him this letter, or else he won't let you pass.
Rarity: Just a minute. Did you just say, Shopping District?
Ambrose: Why, of course. The Shopping District is where all wizards go to get the proper equipment. Wands, decks, any many magical equipment sold by the finest shopkeepers Wizard City has to offer.
Rarity toned out everything Ambrose is saying. She is still gasping in surprise and awe knowing they their own Shopping District unlike Ponyville.
Applejack: But we don't have any wizard money, riiiight Rarity?
She then snapped back to reality, realizing Applejack is right.
Rarity: Oh, I'm afraid so.
Flitter: Don't worry, Rarity, you can explore the Shopping District when we have enough gold. As of now we need talk to Sergeant Muldoon.
Twilight then took the letter from Ambrose and the group headed out to Olde Town. They passed the Shopping District, to Rarity's disappointment, and entered the Olde Town tunnel. When they exited the tunnel they came across a small village. They viewed their surroundings and saw 3 guards, one of them looking like he's a higher rank than the other two, it must be Sergeant Muldoon.
Muldoon: Halt, who goes there?
Twilight: Sergeant Muldoon? We have a letter for you from the Headmaster.
Twilight then levitated the letter to Sergeant Muldoon. He then crumpled up the letter and put it in the nearest garbage.
Muldoon: Say no more, help is truly appreciated, and if it's from the Headmaster, then it's more than enough proof that you're here to help.
He then examine the group then immediately, came to his conclusion.
Muldoon: You must be the new wizards representing Equestria. They say you're Wizard City's last hope, and you all just enrolled.
Rainbow Dash: We'll it was nothing. In Equestria, we ARE the Elements of Harmony.
Muldoon: You've done a good job spooking the spooks in Unicorn Way, but now the undead is spreading farther than we ever seen, push down on one place, something else happens in another place. Now, it's Olde Town's turn. If we lose the town to the undead, the streets will be isolated and fall. Here's what you need to do.
The Group listened intently to the distressed guard for their next assignment.
Muldoon: One of you must go back to Unicorn Way, defeat Lady Blackhope, and lock her in her tower. Do that and I'll let you pass.
Twilight: I'll do it. I handle Rattlebones, hopefully, Lady Blackhope won't be much of a challenge.
Muldoon: Very well, Princess.
At that, Twilight took to the skies and headed back to Unicorn Way. With the help of Ceren, she found Blackhope's tower and met with a lone ghost. Who could possibly be the supposed ghost.
Lady Blackhope: Mere mortals should not dabble in the affairs of the undead. Perish now, Wizard!
Twilight only glared at the ghost as she conjured up a battle sphere and began the battle.
Lady Blackhope(235 Health)
Twilight(thinking): She's life. Hopefully this battle will be better than Rattlebones. Time to use this Death Trap.
Uses Death Trap on Lady Blackhope increasing 30% to her next spell damage
Uses Bloodbat on Twilight dealing -70 damage
Twilight(thinking): Ugh, still gross. Imagine how Pinkie uses it.
Lady Blackhope(235 Health)
Twilight: Now let's see how powerful this Death Trap can do.
Uses Dark Fairy on Lady Blackhope dealing -105 damage
Uses Imp on Twilight dealing -70 damage
Lady Blackhope(130 Health)
Twilight(thinking): I gotta heal first, then it's just rinse and repeat.
Uses Fairy on herself healing +400 Health
Lady Blackhope(130 Health)
Uses Death Trap on Lady Blackhope increasing 30% to her next spell damage
Uses Leprechaun on Twilight dealing -155 damage
Twilight(thinking): Ugh! Gotta keep going.
Lady Blackhope(130 Health)
Uses Dark Fairy on Lady Blackhope dealing -95 damage
Uses her own Physical attack on Twilight dealing -85 damage
Lady Blackhope(35 Health)
Twilight(thinking): One more hit, I think I can get her with my wand.
Uses Death Touch on Lady Blackhope dealing -60 damage
[Lady Blackhope is Defeated]
Twilight: Phew, not so bad.
After locking her tower with a lock spell, Twilight made it back to her friends and Sergeant Muldoon looking pleased that she defeated the evil ghost.
Muldoon: I can tell from the bruises, that you defeated the ghost? Impressive! None of the guards were brave enough to face her.
Rainbow Dash: That's our Egghead here! Bravest pony we know, next to me of course.
Muldoon: Very. With Olde Town secured, I feel better about letting all you pass through the streets. We have Firecat Alley, Cyclops Lane, and Triton Avenue. But be careful, the streets are not as safe as they seem. I've heard some rumors of a nasty wraith by the name, Lord Nightshade. He may be the cause of all the happenings around Wizard City.
Rainbow Dash: Then let's get him!
Flitter: Not yet, Rainbow. Maybe later but right now, we need to help out on the streets. To make things go quicker, we need to split up.
Twilight: Sounds like a plan. What's the first problem?
Muldoon: On Triton Avenue, Susie Gryfonbane reported that her brother was missing during an incident with the undead.
Flitter: It's a Storm Street, so what I suggest is have Pinkie investigate since she's Myth.
Twilight: OK, me and Spike will go with her.
Flitter: What's next?
Muldoon: Cyclops Lane. Nolan Stormgate asked for help regarding missing students.
Flitter: That's a Myth street. Since Myth is weakened to Storm, Rainbow Dash can investigate there.
Fluttershy: Oh um, can I go with her please? Maybe she could use a heal while she's there.
Flitter: Sure! Last street, what's going on there?
Muldoon: Firecat Alley. There's a distress call from one of our own, Private Quinn.
Rarity: Since it's a Fire Street, it would be wise that I journey there.
Applejack: Uh-huh, I'm coming with her in case she causes a screw up.
At that remark, Rarity would only glare at the farm pony.
Twilight: Then it's settled: Rainbow Dash and Fluttershy takes Cyclops Lane, Applejack and Rarity takes Firecat Alley, and me, Spike and Pinkie will take Triton Avenue. Everypony got that?
Twilight: Then let's head out!
With a few cheers from the group, our heroes split up and Traverse through the streets preparing for the danger they will face.
