[?]Read the second paragraph for more information on the #Limited tag. Thread is open, but you need to be able to reasonably reach it is all...

The Legacy is an enormous ship with it's own natural habitat on the surface, forming what is ultimately a moving island. It is large enough to be it's own (small) nation, and is never in the same place twice due to the fact that it is constantly adrift at sea. As of yet, many of it's details remain unknown to Equestrians and the like, as only those from the world it originated in have fully explored it. A select few of those people, as well as a few others from an entirely different world, are the only ones on board at present. However, as The Legacy itself is a foreign entity, it is a place where offworlders from all corners of Equestria and anywhere else are welcome. Natives are as well, of course, as the inhabitants of The Legacy (all 5 of them-- so far, at least) are not prejudice.

>As it stands, however, it is only reachable by air and sea... and is more something you have to stumble upon. Over time, The Legacy may well manage to establish itself as a more significant presence, though. Ways to locate it may well be devised, for whomsoever decides to call it home. There are some pre-existing colonies, but only one is currently inhabited. Werites Beacon, functionally the 'capital city' of The Legacy, is the largest and most civilized colony on board (not that that's saying much). Near by is a small port, called Port-on-Rage. The other ones are actually difficult to discover, and pretty much the rest of the land is natural habitat and the occasional ruin/dungeon/etc. These locations are generally deemed as 'unsafe' however, given that monsters roam the island outside of pre-existing colonies.

>Those who do choose to call it home should know... The Legacy may not always be a safe place to live. It may, or it may not. Given it's nature (and certain recent events), it's possible it will be a point of controversy in the world it's suddenly found itself in. It does have various, immensely powerful protections... but if trouble should come knocking... 'living peacefully' will not be an option until that changes. That said... The Legacy is filled with tons of potential... for good, for bad... but most importantly... for fun. So stop by! Make some new friends, or maybe some new enemies, and let The Legacy be home to new adventures!

Having finally returned to the Legacy, it's quite natural that Norma ended up in Whereisthe Bacon Werites Beacon. It was a meeting place of sorts for her friends and her during their many adventures. Almost as if it was automatic, she found herself heading to the plaza.

To anyone near the coast of the floating land-mass, near the north side of the entrance to the Raging Bay, a strange sound could be heard in the distance... as if something was beating, thrashing the very air rapidly, rhythmically. The sound steadily grew louder and louder. At some point, someone looking in the direction of the sound would see two objects flying several hundred feet over the ocean, making their way to land. As they grew closer, general shapes could be made out... but they were nothing that had ever been seen outside of Equestria...

The MH-60s flew low and fast; they didn't want to advertise their presence any more than they had to. A smaller, quieter helicopter with better reconnaissance and observation equipment, such as a Kiowa, would have been better, but the few at the outpost had been pulled off of duty for maintenance and overhaul.

The choppers fly over the small peninsula and that made up the norther part of a large bay, and kept going, hugging the coast of the bay, looking for any signs of civilization, or anything that would explain the sudden presence of an entire island. Eventually, their search is rewarded. A crew members spots a person on the ground, and the choppers do a fly-over, a couple of the crew leaning out to take a closer look.

The crew men couldn't hear her over the engine and the rotor blades, but they did see her smile and wave. The two soldiers glance at each other, before one of them signals the pilot to come around and land as the choppers pass over the girl.

The lead chopper banks to the right and comes back around, slowing down and decreasing altitude until it bumps into the ground almost, hopping once before coming to a rest. The other chopper continues on, looking for more hints as to what's going on by itself.

As soon as the chopper has landed, a young lieutenant hops out from the open side door, and makes his way out from under the rotor wash, approaching the girl. The men under his command (and one woman who wasn't) pile out as well, taking up proper covering positions. The chopper's blades start to slow down, but the engine stays on; if they need to go quickly, having to spin the blades back up would take too long.

"Uh, Hello, Miss," the lieutenant says; there is a small thing patch on his front that read 'Ode' on it. The soldier has no idea if the girl is a threat or not... around here, he had come to learn that he could never judge someone by their appearance. Nevertheless, the bright smile wasn't exactly threatening... he decides to take a chance and walk up to her. "Uh... we kinda uh... spotted this island out of nowhere... I mean there was nothing but empty water here a couple of days ago."

He extends a hand for a handshake.
"I'm Lieutenant Ode, Ma'am," he said, "We just want to know where this landmass came from, how it got here."

>Completely caught off guard by this sudden outburst of equine glee, Shirley stumbles back just a bit, her eyes widened with surprise.

"Uh, y-you're welcome... if you need a place to stay, I'm sure there's a place in town for you to make yourself at home. I don't think anyone would mind, and like you said before... this place being empty is kind of creepy. I don't like seeing Werites Beacon like this... so the more life we can bring back to it, the better..."

>She ends her response with a warm smile. As she realized all this, a lot of her worries had begun to fade. Sure, there were still some issues and concerns she had, but... this - the biggest one - she can put aside. Even if it took awhile... Werites Beacon would regain it's life some day... or at least she hoped as much. She insisted on believing this, because it gave her so much joy to know that her home was not lost at all... and only need to be 'rebuilt' figuratively speaking...

Ode just sort of stared at the excited, bubbly girl as she went on about Amarcian ruins or something...he had no idea what she was talking about, but he had understood one thing; the girl had no idea where this island came form either. She did say that it was some sort of giant ship with an island on top, which Ode had to blink at. He'd never heard of a ship the size of Iceland, or however big this thing was. The girl also mentioned some others in a town, and then practically begged to be able to check out the Pave Hawk chopper that had gotten the soldiers here.

Ode kinda stood there for a moment, trying to process the information, before he brought a hand up to his temple, rubbing it.

"Okay, how about this?" he said, "You hop in the chopper with us and show us the way to the town, and the pilots and crew can show you around the chopper once we land."

Ode had his radio on, so the crew and the other soldiers could hear him. At the mention of letting some girl look around their bird, the crew and pilots let out cries of protest. Ode rolled his eyes and ignored them; they needed intel, one way or another.

"Stop whining, you're sounding more like women than she is one." came the answer to everyone complaining like babies. Jones smirked behind her mask and relaxed somewhat. Figuring there wasn't anything going on requiring full gear, she reached for her helmet, snapped loose a buckle or two and removed the thing, groaning a bit as the tight itchy mask was finally off her delicate complexion. Straightening her hair, Jones flashed a grin at the overjoyed girl and motioned her over as she made her way back to the chopper. "Come on, you can sit in the girl corner with me, and none of the boys will catch cooties."

Ode steps out of the way as the girl rockets past him towards the chopper, blinking at her enthusiasm, before shaking his head and making his way back himself, telling his men to pile in along with him. He manages to miss the girl's comments on 'cooties,' climbing in just after she finishes, and takes his seat opposite of Jones, near the open doors.

"Let's get going, Warrant Officer," Ode said over the coms to the pilot, then turned to Jones and the girl. "Jones, hand the lady a headset, huh? We need her to navigate."

Zoticus was on top of the world. Almost literally. He grinned as the wind whipped his face.

Man, was he lucky. Not only was his dad Ponyville's best inventor, but he had let Zoticus test out his jetpack! Unfortunately, the jetpack suddenly shorted out, sending Zoticus on a not-so-short trip to that mysterious island.

Ode couldn't help but chuckle at the girl's enthusiasm and demeanor.
"You get that, Warrant Officer? That-a-way. Should be simple enough," Ode said, chuckling through the coms. He received a rather irritated "up yours, L-T," which only caused Ode to laugh more.

"Alright, let's see here," Ode said, after his laughter subsided enough to start taking it seriously. He pulled out his compass, and used the direction that Pascal pointed at to plot a heading, "That-a-way corresponds to.... uh... 0-6-8 from our current heading."

The pilot adjusted their course, and with a couple of seconds of banking to the right had them heading along the direction that Pascal had pointed them at.

"So the rotary turbine on top keeps the blades spinning, creating lift upon the air, and the one on the side of the tail in the back counteracts the torque created by the primary rotor..."

Then again, if you've never heard of Fire Eleth, then it's not like you have any better alternatives-- not that I know of anyway.

"Well, I mean I guess it's not that great for the environment, but JP-5 burns clean, I guess... that's what the ground crews say," Ode said rubbing the back of his neck, "I mean, we don't have anything else that's really cost-effective... oil-based fuels are cheap and plentiful where I'm from."

Anyone in the Amarcian Enclave would laugh at that idea... but I don't see any dark clouds coming out of this baby. I gotta say, you guys sure knew how to use what you had. I almost get the feeling we Ephineans are a bit spoiled by the abundance of Eleth..."

Ode crossed his arms over his chest as Shirley explained that the island-ship didn't move around randomly, but could be controlled. Of course, that brought up one obvious question, and by the way the girl was looking away, Ode figured she knew what that was.

"Okay, so you can control when it goes..." Ode said, "...So the question becomes... why did you bring it here? Why did you leave from where it was before?"

And with that, they were back to pretty much square one.

"...Alright, so no one knows why or how it got here," Ode said, before sighing and muttering, "Higher ups aren't going to be very happy with that..."

"Okay, so that's a dead end..." Ode continued, "Can you tell me about the ship then? What it does, other than float around? How does it get power? Is there anything dangerous here? Like big mean critters or ancient evil demon things?"

He was being serious, by the way. He'd learned to expect the unexpected in Equestria, more so than usual.

"There is dangerous wildlife... but only if you venture into their territory. They don't come to town and can't leave the ship. They're in the various ruins and forests, and that's it."

>She pauses for a bit... not really comfortable bringing up this next bit.

"The Nerifes Canon... can only be activated by me... but it comes at the cost of the life-force of the Ferines that powers it. Given that I'm the only Ferines I've seen here so far... it's not something that can very easily be abused, even if I was that kind of person. There are other similar things, but... I'd like to keep all of them at rest, if at all possible. I don't want any of the horrible history of my world to be repeated..."

>Finally, she takes a deep sigh... getting to his first set of questions.

"I don't know too much about how it works, unfortunately... it's from a very advanced civilization who's technology is far beyond what we ever had in my world. What it has become, however... is basically just a home for whomsoever would call it such. So... yes... if I can have my way... all it will ever do is float around and nothing more."

Ode listened carefully as Shirley explained what could possibly be dangerous on this giant floating island-ship, and for each thing how it wasn't a threat to anything off the island. From what she said, the island would just float about, minding its own business... and accepting anyone who would want to live there. The lieutenant brought an arm up to scratch the back of his head.

"Well, I don't know exactly what the Princesses would say... Equestria doesn't have any territorial waters for all I know, except right off the coast," Ode said, "I guess you should be fine though, based on what you've told me."

She had said something else; something about the horrible history of her world... he had a feeling the island was linked in some way.

"...So... uh... what happened to your world?" he asked, a little awkwardly, "I mean... if you don't mind me asking..."

"Well... let's just say that... things like prejudice and discrimination... lead to a lot of wars and bloodshed. The Legacy was involved in all or almost all of it... but it was also where we brought it all to an end. It had become home for many people, despite how many people had used it for their own ends in the past.

The lieutenant blinked as another girl came by and asked who she was. When Shirley responded to Norma, who in turn welcomed the soldier to Legacy, Ode nodded in response, adding a, "Thank you, ma'am."

Turning back to Shirley, Ode continued.
"Alright, thanks for the info and assistance... I'm going to go report all this to command," Ode said, "I'll probably be back for more information later, but for now, it was a pleasure to meet you."

Ode gave the woman a salute and rounded his guys up, heading back to the chopper to confer with his sergeant and report all of this to his commanders.

Norma eyes Etna dubiously.

A little ice fairy, Cirno hovers above The Legacy, observing it. She's intrigued by this mysterious island and wonders there are any humans living on it. Well, there's only one way to find out!

The small fairy girl lowers herself aboard, flying into Werites Beacon... because a town sounds like a place that would have people.

Sophie...has been around. Somewhere. Someone has probably gotten her to eat something or other that isn't crablettes by this point. Probably some other crab dish due to well, Sophie having lots of dead dead crabs.

Anyways, she's walking around town looking for Hubert...or trying to find the spot she's supposed to wait for him of the two. It was just outside some town or other after all.

Sophie just stares at the winged girl for a while....and a while longer...before speaking.

"I'm not really sure...whats a 'human'?"

>And now Sophie thinks some more, where did she last see Hubert? Its not like she's quite sure where anything is currently anyways.

"Well, we were outside a town, and then he left to get me some Crablettes and told me to wait there for him...and then Pascal ran by and I had to...follow her and tell her that we were supposed to wait for Hubert... and we went into a cave....and then came out of a cave...and then came here, where we're in a town again."

Sophie just stares at the fairy with a confused look on her face. She's not really sure how to respond to at all. Its not like she can freeze things anyways though.

>She instead turns her attention to Shirley. "...I've been looking though, but I can't find the cave at was right nearby...but the path to it..."
