ask-the-wintertrot-rangers asked: Crosshair: Have you ever gone fishing? I've gone ice fishing before, trickier because you have to cut a hole through the ice before you can get to the fish.
I’d… really rather not talk about it. Okay?
ask-the-wintertrot-rangers asked: Inkwell: So, how do Seaponies reproduce anyway?
Frosty: So… do you just get a tiny little Riptide hanging off of you when it happens? That’s… eeugh.
Riptide: Naaaaah i’m kidding. What actually happens is, we fill one of our fins full of sperm. Then we rip off the fin and shove it into the female’s uterus.
Inkwell: Really? That doesn’t sound very scientific. I thought for seaponies it might have been egglaying and then coating them in sperm or Regular mammalian reproduction…Wait, why did I even ask this question, now my overactive imagination is gonna…*5 minutes later* Woah, that was a weird fantasy…
Seaponies and lakeponies aren’t exactly the same.
Which reminds me: Inkwell, does your Chapter have any spare plasma grenades to sell? I’m planning on going fishing at Lake Cider…
Anonymous asked: What about battle-saddles for Thunderchild or any other weapon you find? Or are you inexperienced or uncomfortable using them?
There’s no such thing as a “one-size-fits-all” battle saddle; even the most average-framed pony will need to adjust a half-dozen straps just right to keep the alignment stable. Anything with recoil has to be compensated for, or each shot will throw the alignment just slightly further off. Once everything’s PERFECTLY adjusted, you have to practice setting your entire body in order to aim the weapon.
And even then, where you are looking is not likely where the bullet will land… that’s called “parallax”. You’re not sighting down the barrel anymore, so your line of sight is no longer the weapon’s angle of fire. Shooting becomes as much art as science, at that point.
Battle saddles require not only a lot of practice and fiddling with, but can also be pricey, with tailor-made rigs costing upward of a thousand caps. For a wasteland bounty-hunter whose inheritance was a smoking pile of ruined wagon and a varminter’s rifle, I had to learn how to plug my targets the old-fashioned way: with the eyes, teeth, tongue and jaw Celestia gave me.
ask-the-wintertrot-rangers asked: Crosshair: I can send you the recipe via this terminal, usually it requires various plants, but with the right combination of medicines, brewed correctly, should create a Bone-strengthening brew, that will make your teeth much hardier and resistant to damage. I've heard stories of the brew stopping bullets from penetrating skulls or reducing the damage. Best of luck making the potion my friend, it's not an easy task and it will not taste nice, but your teeth won't shatter again.
Well, I’m no good at cooking much of anything, but I could probably find somepony to do it. Maybe even a zebra, though there haven’t been many seen down here since (or even during) the War.
ask-the-wintertrot-rangers asked: Crosshair: You mentioned dental reinforcement for Thunderchild? I'd personally recommend a Zebra alchemical composition, to strengthen your bones. I'd brew you some and send it to you, if Wintertrot weren't so devoid of the necessary ingredients. Perhaps you can find someone to make you a batch? Or did you have another method you wanted to use?
There’s a few doctors around New Pegas who work in ceramic additions, jaw modifications, steroids… but I’ve never been averse to zebra alchemy. It’s worked for your folks for thousands of years. What’s the recipe?
Anonymous asked: So Cherry ever thought about getting Pink-E an upgrade, I mean she could do with a bigger set of buffers that and better ram?
I’m not quite sure what you mean by “bigger buffers” or “better ram”, but a chill just ran up my neck…
retl asked: What does. The scouter say about your party's level?
…but then, she says that about everything.
ask-the-wintertrot-rangers asked: Inkwell: Hey Dead-Shot, how did you pick your name/alias? You didn't just choose the most badflank thing that popped into your head, did you?
"Badflank"? That’s a word now?
In any case, um, no, that’s the nickname I was given when I killed the gang that killed Dad. Every one of ‘em with a single headshot apiece. I also got my flank-flash —- pony skull with a bullet going through —- for it.
Anonymous asked: Have you heard about those NCR Veteran Rangers those guys give anyone nightmares I have heard they have the best armor and weapons among the New Coltifornia Republic army I also heard one was outnumbered to 50 other soldiers and won I also heard they chew nails and spit napalm.
Yeah, and they’re all direct relatives of Luna, Celestia, or both, through Prince Blueblood’s “Project Stealth-Insemination”. Just ask any Ranger.
