Not a Llama - Happy April Fools Day!
Wallet After Summer Sale

People really don’t understand the energy scales involved in weather.

Some back-of-napkin math:
Assume a region 1 mile by 1 mile, with a height of 300 feet. That’s 1609m·1609m·91m=235588171m³. (Keep in mind this would only represent a tiny fraction of a large-area storm.)

Assuming an air density of 1.2kg/m, that’s about 283Gg (gigagrams) of air. Let’s have it move at a brisk 50 miles per hour; that’s about 22.4m/s.


Subbing in our values:
=142GJ (gigajoules)

That’s the energy released by 34 tons of TNT, or three MOABs. (Please do correct any of my math if it’s wrong.)

That’s just the movement of dry air in a 1 square mile zone only a measly 300 feet high. Expand that outward, stack it upward, add water and ice, and it multiplies fast.

It looked to me like the dragons could have fought more if they wanted to, but just didn’t want to.
They looked smug at first, probably thinking this would be easy, but after getting zapped they were embarrassed and petulant, letting the ponies go.

@Darth Sonic

think it could be like the everfree forest. A force that resists even the strongest of pony magic. And the everfree needs a God tree to hold it at bay after all.

I think it is less the writing and more they coulda shown them doing more than horn beams and shit. Like maybe they are generating spells of other kinds and shit.
Fuck, here is another thing they could have done. Show that windigos live here……..

That could go with something in the comics. The umbrum are good enough of a concept that it could be itnergrated into the show. It could be they are the ghosts of a cruel, lost tribe of ponies, and the windigoes came. That is how the frozen north came to be.

Fair enough. Still, as I said on another image:

@Beau Skunky
Let’s be honest, if it ever came down to brass tacks, Ponykind would render Dragons extinct. Industrialization on top of a continents worth of resources against Bronze Age cave dwellers living in a wasteland, lump on top of that Unicorn Archmages and top tier Pegasi and the rare Maud level Earth Pony and Dragons are fucked.
