*Camera Pans Over Mountaintops* [Mission Briefing, 1 Day Earlier]
Rob Lucci: Jack, You Remember the incident with King Sombra In The Crystal Empire a Few Months Ago?
Lucci: A Kingdom Reappears after a Thousand Years and It's Evil former Ruler tries to regain His Throne. Thankfully The Three Equestrian Princesses along with their stundent and her friends, where Quick to Act. But now according to one of the Princesses, Celestia, there's been A Magical Disturbance Far north of the empire.
Jack: The Arctic Wastelands. *Camera focuses on Shining Armor and Several Guard Ponies Traveling With him*
Jack: I Heard From Shining that there Are Patrols there from time to time.
Lucci: Indeed. In The Meantime However, the Arctic North has more or less become a proverbial Danger zone to the citizens of the Crystal Empire, no Pony would Dare Venture into it. However this is no ordinary Patrol. *Camera zooms in on Mountaintops and shows Jack Running across mountains, following Shining and guards*
Soarin: How You Holding up Shining?
Shining: I'm Fine, Lets just Focus On Getting to that Castle. I Swear, of they Do ANYTHING to her,...
Soarin: Don't Worry, We'll get her out of there and kick those wizards' flanks! *Camera goes back to jack running across mountains*
Lucci: The Magical Surge isn't our only concern,...
Lucci: Aproximately 4 Hours Ago, Princess Cadence Was Captured by a trio of Corrupt Elfin Wizards.
Jack: WHAT!? Do we have an ID?!
Lucci: According to this Letter sent By Your Uncle, they're former members of the Eastern Magician's Circle, From your Homeland. But Due to the Circle's Code of Silence, Not much is known about them, Only that they're Skilled Cryomancers(Ice Wizards) And Are Extremely Powerful. What's more, they've built themselves a castle there in the north.
Jack: What are their Demands?
Lucci: 30,000,000 Beri
Jack: 30 Million??? What makes them think they can get that much??
Lucci: In The Letter, Your Uncle told of a powerful Spell these wizards have Perfected. It was The Reason They became Evil and were Then Excommunicated. It's A Freezing Spell powered By Light. You see, instead of The Ice Melting in the sun's Light, it instead Grows and keeps Spreading Endlessly, And since they are in the Arctic,...
Jack: My God,...
Lucci: Unless Their Demand are met within 24 Hours,The Ice Wizards will Cast that spell all over The Arctic North.
Jack: Freezing the Crystal Empire over, and Eventually, All of Equestria!
Lucci: Indeed, But That Isn't The Worst-Case-Scenario. Keep in Mind, The Ice WON'T Stop Spreading, Even if it reaches Water. Once Equestria Is Frozen Our World is Next. After That, The Entire Planen Will be engulfed in Ice, Creating an Ice Age That Will Last an Eternity.
Lucci: You Have Two Objectives; 1. Infiltrate The Wizards' Castle and Assist Captain Armor in rescuing and Safeguarding Princess Cadence.
And 2. Eliminate The Ice Wizards By Any Means Necicary And Destroy The Castle.
Lucci: Never Forget Jack, That his is a mission of Justice.
