Sailors are known to have more than one story up their sleeve. Enduring the fiercest of storms, staving off mutinies, even encountering dangerous sea creatures. They seem to go through everything, and it can lead to learning something new about themselves and what kind of pony they are inside. Steed Storm is no exception, as no matter how much magic or power he had, he was a sailor through and through.
For some time now, Steed was researching the theory of grey magic, which was a continuum between white and black magic, but he was barely able to find any information or material at all in Equestria, and most experts on magic thought that grey magic was only a theory. Eventually, he was able to find out the origin of the book he found on the subject from Ponyville’s resident librarian, Princess Twilight Sparkle. With this knowledge in hoof, he set sail with everypony available from his crew on the galleon Scarlet Mane, the replacement for the capsized Mare’s Light. There are a lot of trading ports to look at there anyway.
((Alright, ladies and gents, this is the intro to the story I’m writing about one of Steed’s adventures overseas. Not only will this show some nice character development for him, but it will introduce a few of his important crew members and how he learned not only grey magic, but a power he never even knew about (That hopefully won’t make him overpowered or anything). Hope you’ll enjoy this and the rest of the story.))
