The Meaning of ImmortalityThe Meaning of Immortality: A Thesis on Alicorn PowerThe Meaning of Immortality by RoamingNyiad
As written by Prince Solaris Unitenma of Equestria
An alicorn is known as the embodiment of power, able to freely use the abilities of Earth Ponies, Pegasi, and Unicorns freely. Alicorns are also capable of feats of divine magic most ponies cannot hope to pull off without seriously putting their lives in jeopardy. EVERY power has its price, however, and for alicorn power, the only price left to pay is one's own life.
The very same alicorn magic most ponies covet can turn against them, since while alicorns have access to nearly limitless power, as an immortal one must be able to self-sustain their own immortality. In that regard, a portion of an alicorn's potential must ALWAYS be regulated to self-regeneration which is practice can ironically mean most alicorns may never tap into their full potential. Let me give you a range of active power levels by all the known alicorns in the land though bear in mind it's not ACTIVE power levels
The Forbidden Canus Majorus TomeThe Forbidden Canus Majorus Tome (The Restored Scriptures)The Forbidden Canus Majorus Tome by RoamingNyiad
To the reader of this tome who comes across this info, by the time you find this, I will either be dead or have reincarnated into a new form, but know that whatever happens after Discord's reign of anarchy, know there was once another who could rival him...know the deity from the rogue Canus Majoris super-star whose power may very well exceed any successors to him and Discord. Know the name Canus Majoris as a warning to all beings of order: Order means nothing without the existence of chaos and NOTHING is worth one being controlling everything, not even if it meant stopping Discord for good. I can only hope Equestria will show forgiveness for why Discord must run free without a god of order to stop, but the price for Canus destroying Discord would mean the un-making of this world. If you have found this info, know that the truth of Equestria's beginning may burden your very soul and shake whatever foundation will have si
The History of the Ixion MagesThe History of the Ixion Mages by RoamingNyiad
The Ixion Mages, Eclipseus Unitenma, and the Half-Moon Wars
Not long into his stay in Equestria, Colt Magnum would sense the re-appearance of a lost area in Equestria said to have disappeared for 500 years. Intending to figure out the source or the large number of magic readings, he and Flutters would be followed by Twilight Sparkle also seeking what turned out to be the return of Ixion Tower, home of the Unicorns of the Ixion Clan. Located on the edge of the Unicorn Range closest to Ponyville, the Ixion Tower has only recently been restored to Equestria with no one besides maybe Celestia aware of why it disappeared for 500 years.
To begin with, most of the founding and current highest level members are speculated to be direct descendants of Star-Swirl the Bearded and his disciples from the homeland of pre-Equestria civilization. The clan was formed following the fall of Canus Majoris 10,000 years ago when Discord took over Equestria for the next 8,000, taking up the flag of Pri
Year of the Unitenmas: The Complete Family FileThe History of the Unitenmas (The Complete Story)Year of the Unitenmas: The Complete Family File by RoamingNyiad
Part 1: Opening
From the end of Discord’s first reign of chaos until the original Nightmare Moon incident, Princess Celestia and Princess Luna ruled Equestria as equal entities of power and authority. It was thought that the present day’s history books remembered everything about that history, but as this scripture is about to reveal, the name of the Element of Magic was not the only thing initially lost to time 1,000 years ago.
After the fall of Discord but before the Nightmare Moon incident, Celestia had a husband who the strongest mage of the time, Eclipseus Unitenma. Little else is known about Eclipseus’ early history, but he had joined forces with the then-current Guard Master, El Cid de Maestro, during the fights against Discord and Sombra. Being made an alicorn for what was supposed to be a pledge of eternity to Celestia, Eclipseus rebuilt the sisters’ modest palace into the Castle of the Roy
