[FoE/PH] Goldenblood by TheOmegaRidley [FoE/PH] Goldenblood by TheOmegaRidley
The one pony behind all of it, the mysterious Goldenblood.
I had to base myself upon the very few fan art of him I could find on the interwebz, and the story descriptions. Which was complicated because he is described once with a white coat, and the next time with a "mustard" colored one, and mustard for me is yellow. So, fuck you, I took pale yellow.
I made him look younger, but still tired and already sick of the proto-pink cloud.
The city in the back is of course Hoofington (Megaspell factories bwahaha BOOOM !), after reconstruction.

Somber's checklist :
♦ Write a story longer than the Harry Potter saga ☑
♦ Create a super deep plot with so many characters you can't even start to count them. ☑
♦ Kill Blackjack more times than it is scientifically possible ☑
♦ Tell us what Goldenblood is really up to and what exactly Project Horizons is ☑ (edit : as of chapter 67, we may finally have an answer)

Keep up your awesome work, Somber(oh, and your fantastic editors as well !). :)

They probably already know about this, Goldenblood art is pretty rare, so when a picture pops up, everyone knows about it, unlike Blackjack pics where only the best ones get really noticed, because there are just sooo many. Regardless, I won't prevent you from posting it wherever you want as long as you credit me. :meow:

Thanks! Love the piece! Add it to a total of around 2 or 3 pictures on Goldenblood. Art on him is very minimal and a shame too.

Well, with the latest chapter (65), we can finally put a checkmark on that last one, though that read was one hell of gut-punch

Actually this brings me to another question: Is Goldenblood supposed to be the bad guy in all this?

Even after looking at all his recordings and whatnot, I still can't get a read on him (especially after what he did to Fluttershy)

Believe me : Everyone reading Horizons is as confused as you are. The only people who know for sure are Somber and his editors.
I think he was a good guy who wanted nothing else than a peaceful and victorious Equestria, but had despicable methods.

And to be perfectly fair, I think Goldie did care about Equestria and really did want to protect it.  He was willing  to become a villain of the piece in order to keep his home safe.  I respect his motives if not his methods.

I almost wish Goldenblood's activities were split up between multiple characters.  He seems like such a gary stu sometimes...

:icontheomegaridley:
TheOmegaRidley Featured By Owner Oct 11, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
I see what you mean. He's involved in a lot of things, maybe too much for only one pony.
But, while he does have some characteristics of a Gary Stu, he's miles behind Mach from FoE - Outlaw for the "I'm a perfect character" thing.
And we still have to discover the truth about this basturd. :meow:

Who is this Mach of which you speak?

:icontheomegaridley:
TheOmegaRidley Featured By Owner Dec 21, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Main character of Fallout Equestria - Outlaw. The story has a nice setting, an interesting plot, some good characters, but the problem is the main character, Mach : Pretty skilled at everything, claims to not be very smart yet he does identify Watcher as a dragon with only one sentence, has some forced dialogue lines, constantly shoves down you throat that he has to stop the bad guy or bad things will happen, and basically always speaks ahead of other characters, thus making some dialogs very unnerving to read.

Note to the author : Tofu, if you read this, I'll write a proper review one of these days. It'll be more detailled, and believe me, I like Outlaw, or I wouldn't be at chapter 25.

Well, considering the fact that PH is the most popular sidestory to Fallout Equestria, with thousands of readers, you can't put it in the same category as Outlaw with its 600 readers. So of course more people will be talking about Blackjack.

Brilliant. I love Goldenblood. I am on Chapter 32, and counting andI love his character. This portrays him beautifully. I feel so much for him. It is amazing what Somber has done. But Fallout Equestria is still my favourite.

Oh, good thing I didn't write a major spoiler of one of the last chapters in the description, it would have ruined you a big part of the story if you're at chapter 32.

Oh, and be patient, you'll soon join the PH side of the Force !

absolutely stunning Goldenblood.  I have to disagree on PH eclipsing FOE though. PH as a narrative is too incoherent for it to match the greatness of FOE.  PH is still very entertaining though.

Someone suggested I keep a sheet of paper next to me while reading so that I don't lose myself in the story, because, yup, it's huge and sometimes chaotic. Now that sheet of paper is a poster on my wall since it's gotten bigger over time...
Opinions are mixed, some prefer the original, other PH. I love both but my heart goes to Horizons !

Still not sure if he is or not, knowing Somber's style, he could very well be encountered in the form of a robot or whatsoever.

And we still don't know what is waiting in the Hoofington Core, beh ! D:

He got an illness from a proto-pink cloud experiment, and that left him with terrible scars all over the body and an almost permanent coughing. Poor guy...or sick bastard !
For the checklist, you better tell that to Somber.

Ah Goldenblood, without a doubt one of the greatest schemers to ever come from the Fallout Equestria universe. 

I can certainly agree with all the previous posts about Goldenblood's character.  Somber is a master at manipulating his audience, leading us to feel pity for Goldie one moment and then making us wish we could wring his scrawny little neck just a couple scenes later.

And then there's the fact that for all his scheming and secrecy *SPOILERS* Goldenblood STILL ended up being played for a fool by whatever malefic forces were behind the conspiracy that eventually led to the destruction of both Equestria and the Zebra Empire.  You just know our heroes are in trouble when one of the best schemers to come out of the Fallout Equestria universe still wasn't good enough to stop the badguys. :O

Indeed, he's the kind of really "versatile" character you wouldn't expect at first glance, but then...

*Spoilers*Whatever happened before the end of the war, his execution has to be related to the Tokomare, the Eater of Stars/Souls and the AIs in the Hoofington Core, maybe including Cognitum. And all that has to be related to Project Horizons itself...which is still in stand-by mode and we still don't know the effects ! Argh !

Tu sais que tu fais partie des mec qui m'ont peu à peu convertis en brony ?
Putain de bordel de chiasse, j'ai watch d'abord le DA, puis j'ai le premier Fallout Equestria, pour finalement lire Project Horizons. J'ai finalement fini le chap 58 HIER, et tout ce que j'ai à dire, c'est que cette fic est HOLY MOTHAFUCKIN' AWESOOOOOOOOOOOOOME !
Sincèrement, j'ai kiffé l'univers. Autant celui initié par Kkat, que l’interprétation qu'en à Somber.

Goldenblood. C'est lui qui à la réponse à tout, qui sait tout. ça me fait mal que les orbes memoriels du chapitre 57 ait étés brisés, on aurait pu avoir des indices supplémentaires, surtout que c'étaient des "Golden Orbs"...
Haaaa putain, je sais pas trop pourquoi, mais j'ai l'impression qu'il savait depuis le début de la guerre que ça finirais comme ça... Qu'il savait même qu'il allait se faire exécuter à la fin... ça l'a pas empêché de faire des "fuck ups"...

Vraiment ? Ça me fait réellement plaisir d'entendre ça, que j'ai été un tout petit peu un facteur. Un nouveau fan de MLP et de Fallout Equestria, on dit jamais non. :D

Et pour les orbes qui ont été brisés...de même, j'avais envi de traverser l'écran et d'étrangler Charm pour ça. Ces orbes devaient avoir une valeur inestimable (vu la tronche de Steel Rain quand il l'entend, huhu). Mais Somber doit avoir une porte de sortie supplémentaire pour contrer cet évènement, c'est sûr.
