[FoE] The End of the World by TheOmegaRidley [FoE] The End of the World by TheOmegaRidley
"I walk a lonely road
The only one that I have ever known
Don't know where it goes
But it's home to me and I walk alone"

 ~ Green Day - Boulevard of broken Dreams

I wasn't really sure what to call this one, so if you think "The Edge", "The Line", "The Rift", more fitting, feel free to tell me so. If you have any bright ideas, I'd be happy to change the title. :)

The Divide, Fallout: Equestria style ! I know a lot of people dislike Lonesome Road, but I really liked it. It really felt like the end of the world, post-apocalypse at its finest. I absolutely loved the Divide, with its dark yet warm colors, its sick difficulty and the overall feeling of loneliness. Also, Ulysses was a cool character. :heart:
Did someone already try to write a Lonesome Road styled sidestory ? If yes, is it any good ? :)

I never got to use the Divide.  I stopped with the New Vegas knock off around the early 30's when it seems like so many others were using it.  If I had to though, I'd use Ghastly Gorge.

Tinderbox stared down the broken land.  "There's megaspells here?"  It was hard to tell what was here amid the ruins clutching to the edges of the grim ravine.  Broken roads and train lines, some still danging cars like ragged lengths of rusted intestine, jutted out here and there.  In the depths, unwholesome mists, like poisoned rainbows, seemed to slither and slide about under his gaze.

"Megaspells," crackled the rusted sprite bot above him.  "Halfspells.  Demispells.  Broken spells.  A time ago, this place hummed with activity, taking the discoveries of Maripony and entombing them within the earth.  Wonders of technology.  Wonders of magic.  Now everything is just dust... and poison... and you... and me..."

A blast of staticy dust scratched his face, the gust in the gash in the earth defying the cool breezes behind the pegasus.  If he spent a minute in that air, he'd lose all his feathers.  It was bad air.  Spiteful.  It wanted to kill him.  "I don't know why you're doing this, Vulture.  Can't we just talk about this?"

"We can.  Face to face.  Come in, Tinderbox," the sprite bot said, and Tinderbox could imagine a smile in that rusty voice.  "Come into... the Gorge..."

(Phew, one week later, I finally find the time to answer my dA comments...)

Hey there Somber ! Always a pleasure to see an author leave a comment on some of my pictures. :)
Also, I really like the way you manage to make the reader feel like the world you're working with wants to kill its characters. Probably one of my favourite parts of Horizons as well.

Oh man, I loved that DLC. I intended to save it for last, but I couldn't wait. Ulysses was one the most interesting characters I've ever encountered in video games (even if he was basically impossible to kill at the end) and I was overjoyed that I was able to convince him to join me. The Divide's backstory and overall bleak atmosphere meshed perfectly.

Awww, but Lonesome Road always comes in last, it's the final chapter before the second battle of Hoover Dam. °°
But that DLC is indeed pretty solid, with the best armors (Riot gear series :heart: )and weapons the game has to offer (that shoulder mounted minigun :heart: ), as well as a decent plot, awesome setting, and sick difficulty. Please Bethesda, make the Fallout 4 DLCs as interesting as they were in New vegas.

let me guess : the divide, right ?
TheOmegaRidley Featured By Owner Jul 10, 2014  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Well, it's said in the description that it's the Equestrian version of the Divide, so yup, nailed it !

I think this video suits this picture nicely~…

Wonderful video and soundtrack (though I prefer Green Day's version, tbh), even if it's not so fitting for Littlepip herself, since she quickly teams up with Calamity and the others. :)

Nicely done :)
