Intro Quest 1: A Swift Return
Swift Foot: Excuse me? Starlight Glimmer? They told me I'd find you here, but --
Swift Foot: Ssh! Not so loud... I'm here in secret; my family can't know I'm --
Swift Foot: ... Well. There's... a lot you don't know about my time at the School of Friendship, but if you promise to keep it between us... I'll tell you everything. I need help, Starlight -- and I need it from you!

|"... Wow. Should I... not have been listening to that? (I can't believe Filika isn't even a real place...!)"|
Intro Quest 2: Old Habits
Swift Foot: ... And that's the whole story. Ever since I returned to Thrace, I've been trying to sway my family to the side of friendship as best I can...
Swift Foot: ... QUIETLY. Mostly just suggestions and nudges, so far... I can't be obvious about it: If they know I've started thinking like an Equestrian, they'd exile me for sure!
Starlight Glimmer: Wow... thank you for trusting me enough to tell me all that, Swift Foot -- and I'm proud of you for committing to something so difficult -- but... Why come to ME, specifically?
Swift Foot: Because they're starting to get suspicious of me! There's only so many times I can "casually" ask my dad how he feels about friendship without him catching on...
Swift Foot: That's why I need an outsider he would trust, to help me sound him out... someone who's good at figuring out what ponies are feeling, AND who can convincingly pretend to be a villain...
Starlight Glimmer: *sigh...* Yep... that pretty much sounds exactly like me, huh? Well, you don't have to worry, Swift Foot -- I'm not gonna turn down a former student in need!
Starlight Glimmer: You go charter a boat back to Thrace; I'll meet you at the docks in a little while. I've gotta head back home, fish my old sameness accessories out of the attic, and practice making scary faces...

|Quest Giver: Starlight Glimmer|
|"Don't tell Starlight or Swift Foot, but... I might stow away with them on that boat? I REALLY wanna know how this turns out!"|
Starlight Glimmer: (Ahem...) Hail and well met, o mighty king of Thrace! It is an honor to be in the presence of monarch so... like-minded.
King Diomedes: Hmpf. Your groveling does you no credit... but I take your meaning. I trust my oldest and youngest daughters have shown you the grounds? It is not often that we entertain... diplomats.
Starlight Glimmer: Yes... I do so look forward to plotting the downfall of Equestria together. Their obsession with friendship is SO... grating.
Starlight Glimmer: ... Isn't it? How do... how do YOU feel about friendship, Your Majesty? It's... (Ahem --) It's terrible, right?
King Diomedes: ...
Starlight Glimmer: Just... not good. At all. Is what I think.
King Diomedes: ... What land did you say you ruled over, again?

- Each attack costs 1 energy and gives you 25 - 150 (60 on average), which can be used for upgrades. Each attack deals damage equal to your power. Energies take time to regenerate.
- Upgrades increase your power, maximum energy capacity and decreases the recharge time for each energy.
- You start with 10 power, 10 energy and 12 minutes (cooldown) per energy.
■ AFTER THE END OF THE EVENT
Starlight Glimmer: ... Phew! That was... harrowing. But I don't think he figured out that I was a faker, at least!
Swift Foot: That's good... Did you manage to learn anything new while you were in there, though?
Starlight Glimmer: Yeah... First, that I'm VERY out of practice at acting like an individuality-destroying dictator, which... I guess is kind of comforting, now that I think about it...
Starlight Glimmer: But also... I'm sorry, Swift Foot. Your dad... he's still dead set against friendship, and against Equestria. Or at least, if he feels differently, he wouldn't say so to me...
Swift Foot: I see... Thank you, Starlight, that's... disappointing, but not surprising. Don't worry: I'm not through with trying to change his mind just yet. I'll just have to rethink my tactics...
King Diomedes: Hrmm... Terri Belle?
Terri Belle: Yes, Father?
King Diomedes: Double the troops' drills this week. Something is afoot... I don't know what yet. But whatever it is... it must be answered.
- The maximum number of upgrades is 102.
