Among the many legends and stories involving the history of great desert nation of Saddle Arabia, none are more contested or debated by scholars and experts both within and without the nation then that of City of Ubar. This city was said to have been the home of one of the first Sultana of the land but records were not consistent on where this was. More all who attempt to find this city have failed, though word of an ancient book is said to hold the key to finding the Lost City of the Sands.

Yet recently this book as been unearthed by Dusty Scrolls, and he has decided to use it in which to find out the truth of the city so many have doubted existed. This unicorn, a researcher of Canterlot's School for Gifted Unicorn and its teacher of Ancient Cultures, requested the aid of Princess Celestia and Princess Luna. In their interest of this, though they would not explain why, the royal sisters agreed to sponsor the expedition and Princess Celestia even offered for one of her royal guards to go with Professor Scrolls so as to help keep him and those he hires safe.

With such the old stallion sends a notice to all major cities of Equestria, requesting workers and guards to help in the expedition as well as those who feel they are qualified to be of service. Offering an impressive paycheck for all who are hired and see the expedition to its completion.

Who will join?

Aranak's coming! He could be part of the muscle or guard group, not really sure which. (Bio's in my log, in case you wanted to look at it again ES.)

Ha, ha, ha, that is funny. Asking if the famed Daring can join an expedition to Saddle Arabia to find a lost city whose very existence is contested by scholars and experts. I was expecting you Flip, and even hoped you would ask for Daring to join.

If Dusty Scrolls knows about Daring, he may well have tried to personally request she join. If he did not... well the unicorn would jump at the chance if the pegasus came to him. Though it may well have taken some convincing, given the mare is generally considered fictional by most.

Hmm, I will leave such details to you.
--------------------------

Aranak is also in, given I created this so your dragon and Golden can interact. Muscle would most likely be the best bet, as the dragon would be most helpful for heavy lifting and perhaps even intimidation.

I know that, silly! :)

And muscle sounds good to me as the position for Aranak.

I'd like to bring in Red Cedar as a worker if possible, out of his element though he may be.

Sure, though I'm going to ask for a link to his character sheet.

If I can, I would like to ask all of you for this. Not only so I can look over the character but so I can add the links onto the original post. That... and it is a part of the rules above, so there is this.

Hmm, he would be out of place given the fact a more desert nation is in many ways the opposite of a forest... yet he can perhaps benefit the group another way. The bio mentions his father is a sailor, this can be how your character is hired partly as a boat is required to get to where the group is going, and Red Cedar can have talked to his father in helping Dusty Scrolls in acquiring passage to Saddle Arabia.

He does also like to travel himself, however. I figured the lure of something exotic like Saddle Arabia might be enough to convince him to go someplace with virtually no trees. He can also arrange travel through his father, though, sure.

For any who might be interested, to let anyone know who might be interested, I would like to get this started back up.

 

Also, for all those who previously showed interest and would like to still join in, your characters are all approved.

I am glad to see a reply, and to find that you are still interested. (Replied on 06 April 2017)

Looking to still get this going, this week even, if the three of you are willing to join back in.
