  • *earlier we were discussing a ponified Silk Road in Cactus' Ponyville Diaries world*
  • Chaos Bolt: Fun Fact: During the Starswirl age of magic, as crystal magic began it's earliest stages of use, some gemcutters accidentally cut the magic crystals too far, resulting in the magical energy leaking. When these leaks were mixed with other types of magic it resulted in new crystals entirely, i.e. weak fire crystals that replaced coal in train engines. Some combonations however resulted in a highly addictive magic drug now referred to as "Rainboon". The magic of these crystals boosted all other magic many times over, but would also slowly erode the user's sanity. After one unicorn attempted to use these to infuse some objects with vast magical power, they were banned by royal decree. Today, Rainboon has begun growing naturally in the mountains of the Frozen North, but with far less potent effects on magic and it's users.

  • Chaos Bolt: also theory: Starswirl made the spell from MMC in an attempt to switch memories with Luna and Celestia so he could learn the origins of the Elements, wishing to create his own to assit his studies. When the spell only swapped marks with his apprentice due to not being connected with the Elements, he began using Rainboon in an effort to create his own Elements. while he partly succeeded by creating the Alicorn Amulet, he also was so mad that he was transformed into another being entirely. What exactly he became is known only to the Royal Sisters.
