The Bannermares (and dragon) by LateCustomer The Bannermares (and dragon) by LateCustomer
My entry to The Royalty Contest held by :iconponies-for-everypony:

"Princess Celestia's bannermares welcome you to their favorite table on this Hearth's Warming eve. They've just returned from their latest adventure with plenty of tales to tell, and they would love to hear of your own exploits as well. Have a seat next to Sir Spike and Lady Dash, you're in good company."

---

An excuse to draw the Mane Six and Spike wearing mail armors in a tavern? Yes please!

I tried to make sure that the composition and color choices made the scene warm and inviting to the viewer. There's a place at the table just for the viewer, the colors for the mares and spike are brighter versions of their show colors to make the table bright and cheery. I used orange and brown as the main color of the scene to make everything warm. I hope it all works.

UPDATE: Uploaded a larger rez version of this image.

Ah Red Dragon Inn is a board game where you are a group of adventurers after an adventure drinking at a pub and trying to make everyone else drunk or broke first.

from Left to Right:  Cleric, Barbarian, Druid, Wizard, Bard, Fighter.  And spike is the wizard's [Twilight's] familiar.

LateCustomer Featured By Owner Mar 30, 2014   Digital Artist
As much as I enjoyed DnD (or Pathfinder), I have to say I'm more of a classless RPG guy :)  Still:

Rarity - Sure, why not? Cleric.
Applejack - I'd say more Fighter than Barbarian.
Fluttershy - Yeah, I guess Druid's the closest thing we can tag her with.
Twilight - Wizard. With out a doubt.
Pinkie Pie - Heh, sure, Bard works.
Rainbow Dash - Another Fighter, except she would be built with speed and power, sacrificing endurance.  A 'glass cannon' fighter :D
Spike - Rogue. Not a thief, mind you, but a rogue focused on skills the group would need to have outside of combat. Where Pinkie covers all social skills, Spike could cover all practical skills (bartering, navigation, etc.).

When I saw this, I immediately thought of the Upheaval fanstory (That thing is much longer than a fanfic should be.)
"Shoot, that last journey knocked the story clean out of ma skull. Ah hay, I'll have one next time for ya fillies."

Anyways, great drawing!

Yeah. Upheaval is a great read if you ever wonder if there's a dark side to MLP. There's a guy on youtube that has actually read the entire story chapter by chapter known as Forest Rain, so if you're interested yet don't want to read it yourself, just look up Upheaval Breaking Point and find his youtube name, just sit back and listen. He's a great voice actor.

Correction, he's actually still working on Upheaval Reckoning. (Chapter 23 of 58. @.@)

So there we were, just having made the precarious leap over the broken floor in the hall before. If ever I needed another reason to master a Fly spell, that was it. But we barely set foot into this immense room with the ceiling lost in shadows overhead keeping a weather eye out for traps and treasure when the ranger hears a low thumping sound. Don't get ahead of me now. I'm sure you all know what's about to happen.

But yeah. Sure enough, from the tallest passage comes this enormous T-Rex. A T-Rex! In a dungeon. Honestly. Whoever thought it was a good idea to keep a dinosaur that large underground must have been taking queues from the same architect that built the temples Daring Do wrote about.

But I digress. We were all set to fight for our lives when, in a moment of brilliant clarity, the perfect spell jumps to mind. This is a giant stupid brute and nothing more. Whatever brains it does have can't formulate a thought any more complicated than "I'm hungry." So quick as a flash, I cast a Ray of Stupidity on the dumb beastie to numb that little pittance of gray matter that passed for it's brain. One spell, and it was left in a stupor, unable to move, or think or do anything at all.

Needless to say, I got a Celestia-size cut of the treasure from that room.

Had to share one of my favorite moments of triumph.

If anyone else has a tale to tell, pull up a chair and give it a proper telling.

Game of Thrones.  Skyrim.  Dungeons and Dragons. Lord of the Rings. Take your pick.  This is meant to be a generic medieval fantasy adventuring party, so any of those would work :D

No way would Pinkie be a Slannesh warrior.  The fact that if she were then, by canon, Twilight, Applejack, and Rarity would kill her, no questions asked.
