V I D E O

[Maya appears to be back in the Fey Manor today, surrounded by a crowd of happy ghosts. It's been a few days since she's been back from her spiritual training, but she's been busy getting re-acquainted with the city for the past few days.]

He-llo, Union! Sorry it's been a minute. I've been training!

But I'm back, now, which means you can take meditation lessons with me-- or I can help you with your ghost pokémon needs again. And of course, channelling is still on the table, too!

[as Shinrei snuggles up under her arm, Maya gives the gengar a headscritch with one of her dark, translucent ghosty arms.]

I've missed you guys a lot, so drop by and say hi if you can! Oh, and if anyone's moved here recently, um-- My name's Maya Fey! I'm the current leader of the House of Kurain channelling school in Ninetales Vale. Come by and see us if you can!

A C T I O N

[This action is mostly for Pearl Fey, but it is taking place in a very public area and others are welcome to witness it.

A short time after Maya's transmission, she finds the warm weather a good opportunity to get herself outside for the day. This, of course, puts her in the path of Pearl's mother.

They've never had a good relationship. Pearl's mother, Morgan, has always wanted Pearl to be the leader of Kurain instead-- after all (according to Morgan), Maya's mother, Misty, stole that position from Morgan.

Since Maya's birth, Morgan has been bitter and somewhat cruel to Maya (and her sister) under the guise of good will and tradition, but Morgan's less than savory means of dealing with Maya have ended up with her in trouble at times. She still resides in the village of Kurain, but without much influence or freedom.

That doesn't stop her from raining on Maya's parades.

Maya now stands in front of the manor in the open training area, where guests are welcome, listening to Morgan speak about Pearl. Though she says very little and keeps on a smile, her discomfort is apparent; the wisps that dance around her are dim, her hair floats just slightly less, her glow is dull-- and she seems almost weighed down as compared to usual.]


Yes, I know, Auntie. Of course Pearl did great while I was gone...

[VIDEO]

[Maya's broadcast today (read: about 9pm) has her looking a little tired; not in a sick way, but she's been working hard for the past few weeks. Her goal is to make sure at least most of her pokémon are around the same level, and so intensive training has been a must.

...This week, though, they've taken a break from training to search, so Shinrei, Chikao, Bozu, and Boss are with her as opposed to the team she was training-- and now Maya's taken a break from searching to do a broadcast.]


Hey. Um, I figured I'd make a video, since I forgot to let everyone know-- this week and next week I'll be at the Coastal Ruins. I'm looking for something right now and training again later, so.. yeah.

That means lessons and tutoring at the school are off for the next two weeks. When I come back, though, I'll still be training pretty hard! So, you're welcome to join us for lessons, or just to train.

[A shrug.]

Sorry about forgetting to let you guys know... I hope Peri hasn't scared anyone off who was looking for me. Haha.

Anyway, I'll be back the week after next! But if you wanna plan a lesson or something, let me know, okay? I've got time to chat.

[ACTION ; NIGHT]

[In the dark just outside the coastal ruins, other searchers may find a certain medium a-glow in the night with her ghosts and sylveon. She speaks to them softly, hands on her hips.]

Alright... let's get going. Tonight'll be the night-- don't worry!

[And with that small pep-talk, she leads them in, eager to explore.]

With the revelation of the presence of the Enhanced, Union was able to quickly mobilize. As the strange conditions continued to worsen, the Trainers of Union once again set out to bring order to the chaos.

This time however, they do not walk entirely alone. A small, dedicated team remains behind in Union, sorting through the dossiers and information that Crystal and Rory have collected. Connected to those in the field via Warp Band network, hopefully they can identify the Enhanced and find a way to calm them before a tragedy occurs.

[OOC: There will be a thread for each active team based on the sign-ups. Any areas that did not have any sign-ups will not be present and will be addressed later. As per our usual standards, moderators and NPC helpers will progress the log at least once every 24 hours. The Union log will work somewhat differently from the battle logs in that the participants will be collecting information concerning the Enhanced; when enough information has been accumulated, they will be asked to tag into the battle threads to provide guidance and support to those out in the field.

Characters participating in the Union log will function as support staff for this event. They will have their own log interacting with Rory and Crystal and as characters in other logs encounter the Enhanced, they can use the observations made to try to find out more about the Enhanced in the field and help the people in the field determine an appropriate situation. Because of this, players in the Union thread may threadjack any ongoing log to relay information as needed.

The outcome of this event will depend very much on player decisions and the ability of the characters to respond to the threats at hand, so we would highly encourage you all to tag as regularly as possible. Thanks!]

VIDEO

[Maya looks bright and perky for this broadcast, practically glowi-- wait, no, that faintness around her does seem to be a bit of a ghosty glow. Her arms look dark, but loosely transparent, and the beads of the magatama necklace she wears have been replaced with wisps. Altogether, it's a pretty spooky image to display on the camera.]

Afternoon, everyone! It's Maya Fey of the Kurain School in Ninetails Vale. I just wanted to remind everyone that since the nights are longer, all your ghosty friends might be a little more active this time of year! So, be good to them, okay?

[From her hair, her gengar Shinrei offers a tiny wave.]

Iiin addition, we're still offering training here at the school, and as always, channelling sessions are available too. Feel free to just pop in. I'm awake at weird hours usually, but there should be someone around to help.

Also, if you need any help with training yamasks... Rei Hino, of the Hikawa shrine, and myself-- we've been figuring out a lot about them, and maybe we can help!

[Pleased with herself, the newly evolved ghost ends her transmission.]

ACTION: KURAIN SCHOOL/MANOR

[At the manor, there's a piano. It's been there for ages, aaages, since the days when the Ayasatos were influential. It doesn't get used much by acolytes who aren't Maya as of late, however-- so it's beginning to get a little dusty.

Despite that dustiness, today there's beautiful music coming from it, audible through most of the school-- but not a single player to be found. The keys move, the hammers hit the piano's strings-- but there's not a pianist in sight.

What could be going on?]

[On the video screen this afternoon are Maya and Shinrei, decked up for Soul Fast. Both of them look rather excited.]

So, it's that time of the year again, everyone! Soul Fast is beginning, aaand I wanted to remind you guys that Ninetails Vale is selling masks and performing the usual ceremonies, as always.

[Maya seems just slightly disconcerted when in the background, Kuzuryuu and Ichigo begin talking.]

What’s a birthday, anyway?

Are you fucking kidding me, even a two-year-old could figure that one out from context.

[Maya clears her throat, rolls her eyes, and continues.]


For anyone unfamiliar with Soul Fast, it's the festival in which we celebrate the communion of the world of the living and that of the dead. It's a great time to honour lost loved ones, or beloved pokémon!

[She leans over and rubs Shinrei's back-scruff, making sure not to disturb her painted fur.]

God, I’m just wondering! What’s your problem, anyway?

I don’t have a problem! Seriously, do you have a brain in there, what else could a “birth day” be but the day someone’s born, moron?!

And what’s wrong with NOT knowing what it is?! I’ve got a brain, but I’m still trying to figure out all this human stuff, alright?!

Pokemon get born, too, dumbass!

I woke up in front of a shrine! And I - rrrgh, never mind! I should’ve figured you’d be an ass over a simple question.


...Um, anyway, like I said, this is a really important festival for ghost pokémon and the like, so remember to honour them with like, sweets and stuff.

[She looks like she's losing concentration.]

Uh, we... will have all sorts of things for you to participate in, and--

You were probably still BORN, stupid! Maya brings Ghost-type eggs home sometimes, I’ve fucking seen them. Just because YOU don’t know anything doesn’t mean it shouldn’t be common sense!


How can it be common sense if I don’t know anything?! That doesn’t even make sense, idiot!


Your lack of damn knowledge is what doesn’t make sense! Were you this idiotic BEFORE you died, too?!


Shut the hell up! At least I’M not an insensitive asshole that’d bite someone’s head off for asking a goddamn question, unlike YOU!


Well who the fuck asked you to ask me, shithead?!


I asked because you brought it up, dog breath!

[Maya finally gets up, handing the warp band to Shinrei, walks to the doorway, and yells. Shinrei winces when she does, waving sheepishly at the camera.]


I'm trying to make a video here! Shut up already!

[She returns to the camera looking exhausted.]

Does anyone know how to make stupid boys stop arguing?

[video - Monday (can be replied to all through the week)]

Hey everyone! Maya Fey here, master of the Kurain Channelling School.

[She flashes the camera a grin. Shinrei and Shiyon are behind her. Shinrei, who evolved last week, seems to be a very happy haunter. Shi, however, seems stoic as usual.]

So, it looks like what's been working really well recently has been, um, me just doing video calls and letting you consult me!

If you're unfamiliar, the Kurain Channelling School is a school located at the Fey Manor in Ninetails Vale, the Northwestern District. We're mostly a school for Kurain family members to learn channelling, which means that we can perform ghost-channelling sessions for you if you request it.

Um, but most of you guys would rather have help with your ghosts, right? Well, we offer training sessions with ghost and psychic types for all types, aaand we also can help train your ghosts or psychic types, or come see you if you are having a ghost-related problem.

We're pretty flexible too, so just ask.

Just so you know, we're open Mondays through Thursdays and are mostly available early morning or evening. We tend to sleep through the mid-day. [A ghastly little chuckle, and her two ghosts giggle with her.]

Thanks in advance! I'll see you guys around.

[She ends the transmission.]

[ACTION; COASTAL RUINS for Kuzuryuu Fuyuhiko]

[It had been an investigation just to go and figure out these suspicious ghosts they'd heard of-- Yamask. Now, Kuzuryuu and Maya had found themselves bonded with two of their own. Since Kuzuryuu is a lower level, Maya had to accompany him. But she also wanted to. She very much wanted to. Ghosts.

They can't be that difficult to deal with, can they?

Now as they finish their explorations, Maya isn't so sure. There's something off about hers (not that she didn't expect there to be, given a yamask's nature, but she hasn't voiced her suspicions.

With Shinrei, Chikao, and Bozu walking with her and with Peri and Shi attuned to her warp band, she figures there's very little to worry about. Her still-unnamed yamask saunters beside her, quiet and strange, but does little do disturb conversation between the rest.]


Sooo, that was fun.

[Crossing her arms behind her back, Maya leans forward to look Kuzu in the face as they walk side-by-side.]

And you got some training in. Pretty good deal, huh?

So, hey there. Maya Fey here. Because obviously, you... can't tell.

I'm looking for this body's owner-- you know, Jade? Looks like he's probably got mine.

[She doesn't have his glasses on, though, of course-- because they didn't come with the body. This does not deter her, as he apparently can see pretty well.

Should she be freaking out? Probably. She did that earlier, though.]




Anyway, it's not the biggest deal, but I figure my aunt's gonna have a big fit about this.

So I'm not gonna be home today. I'm gonna hang out at the forest shrine, so meet me there, okay?

Who: Maya Fey and Fuyuhiko Kuzuryuu
Where: Kuzuryuu's residence
When: Slightly forward dated to September 8th
What: Boss and Kuzuryuu don't get along, but Boss is going to be a dad soon and is being oh-so-gracious as to allow Kuzu to take care of this egg baby. Of course, Boss doesn't have thumbs, so Maya has to courier this one.
Warnings: Nothing but probably a lot of yelling from Kuzuryuu. So basically, nothing.

[Is that a whistling sound outside Kuzuryuu's house?

It sure is. Rather than knocking on the door, Maya is standing there, whistling.

Whistling.]


Heeeere puppypuppy! Are you home?

[She has no shame. Not a damn ounce.

With Shinrei tucked in her hair, Boss at her feet, and an egg in a basket in her hands, Maya's intentions are actually nice! But she's still determined to be an ass about it.]


Come answer the door already! I have something for you!

[Here's Peter, looking a bit pleased with himself. Those who know him well might notice he looks slightly more muscular than when they last saw him.]

So, guess who just evolved? Got an increase in strength and some ridiculous air-time when I jump. No real dramatic physical changes, but I did end up getting these.

[Peter shows off his wrists, revealing a raised discolored patch on each one.]

Doesn't look like anything special, but-

[He flicks out one of his hands, firing a String Shot from it.]

Coolest thing ever, right?

Gooood afternoon, everybody!

[Maya seems to be trying to keep a nosy Axew and Spiritomb in order while she holds on to a very gaseous looking egg.]

Guys. Stop it. I'm tryin'a--

[As Axew gets in the way, Maya sighs loudly and reaches over to hand the egg off to Shi, who's sitting behind her.

...Actually, it looks like she's got her whole ghost menagerie with her.

Either way, with her hands free, she tugs the warp band out of Axew's mitts and pats his little head, ignoring Spiritomb's snickering.]


Thaaat's Hans, by the way. He's kinda new.

Anyway, I just wanted to remind everybody that the Kurain School is open-- again-- after all of that. So we'll still be offering classes and channellings if you need... either.

Oooor we can just chat, if you wanna come by! Otherwise, that's all, I'm out.

Oh- but first! Jinxie!

[Maya holds up a certain item both she and Jinxie received after the raids; a Reaper Cloth.]

Let's get this evolution party on the road, shall we? Come over here already!

[As the people of Union begin to move out into the plains, they'll find that the Councilor's warnings were apt. Though not everyone is targeted, it isn't long before a few unlucky travelers find themselves on the receiving end of the same type of attack. The bandits, whoever they might be, are experts at swooping out of the blue, striking so swiftly that the victims almost never even catch a glimpse of them.

How exactly will they put this to a stop? There's so many, it seems impossible to take them out one group at a time... Perhaps they have a base somewhere.]

((This post is for both groups who wish for mods to run and players to thread freely amongst themselves. You may feel free to handwave having been attacked and thread the aftermath of that event. Please respond to the appropriate section depending on where your character is. Thanks!))

[The feed turns on to everyone's favorite fortune teller, accompanied by a cute little Pancham sitting in her lap. Something seems different too. The way that she's dressed; Nozomi has ditched her usual loose-fitting robes that she wears in the shop for something more fitting for the hot weather. It's a bit scandalous compared to the usual fashion in Union.]

They weren't kidding when they said it was hot out here!

[But the clothes were cute and airy, so it didn't bother her much. This place could use a beach.]

It's much different out here too. All the pokemon are really cute, and the people are interesting. This has been a nice vacation. I feel like my spiritual power got a boost from the trip, not to mention a bit of shopping done. Maya, Jinxie, I got you something special~

The fashion here is really cute, and keeps you cool. If anyone wants me to pick something up while I'm here, let me know!


[ACTION]

[Exploring! Caldera was nothing like Union as far as Nozomi was concerned and, with Mithra and the new kid Sarutahiko the Pancham, Nozomi can be found wandering around the city, poking her head into various places.

If they're playing today, she'll even go to check out a game of Earthkin Clash, although she'll find quickly that she doesn't actually like it that much.]

Aaalright!

[Maya looks particularly excited this morning.

She stands in front of the Kurain Manor's school entrance, though she's facing the school, so only the street is visible behind her.]


So, just to let everyone who visits know... we kind of have a new guardian.

He's reeeally big, okay? But he's been here a long time, so you'll recognise him. Maybe.

[She giggles, turning the camera to face Peri, who has just evolved into Abomasnow.

Peri, whose castform buddy Powel is giving a cooling wind, rubs his neck shyly and waves. Now that he's officially the guardian of the household, he's wearing a Magatama too-- but as he's not a psychic or ghost pokémon, it's not been charged with any spiritual energy. It's mostly a mark of status.]


This is Peri, and you'll see him greet everybody outside the school for classes.

Don't be scared, okay? He's the same as always, but we figured he'd do a lot better out here than inside. Make sure to say hello on your way in!

[VIDEO]

[A young woman comes into view, the lighting a bit dim. Were those candles? Regardless, she seems to be dressed a bit oddly, the flickering light doing even more to make her seem mysterious. Even still, she smiles.]

Hello~ With things winding down from the difficult situation in Caldera, it looks like we've grown quite a bit! I don't know how many Calderans have warp bands, but if you do, welcome! I hope that everyone is settling in all right.

My name is Nozomi Toujou, and I work with my family at Etteilla, a shop in Ninetails Vale. You may not have heard of it. Our specialty is in fortune telling and charms, and because of the sudden influx of visitors, as well as the Kurain School of Channelling opening the public, we're running a short special! Anyone who brings a friend to Etteilla will get 10% off for themselves and anyone with them; and 25% if you enroll with our school~

[It's such a great deal, and after a few shameless plugs for her cousin's school, she draws a strange-looking card, holding it close to her face. The Wheel of Fortune.]

My cards say you should take a chance, and they're never wrong!


[ACTION]

[All around Union, Nozomi, Mithra the male Nidoran and Lakshmi the Purrloin are out and about! She is doing what she can to talk up the Channelling school, as well as taking the time to do a fair bit of work getting new customers for her shop. Business hadn't been slow per se, but with the population burst that came from all the new refugees filtering into the city, she would be stupid not to take advantage of that.

In the business district, she is focusing purely upon passing out literature to varying degrees of success. For some odd reason, people didn't take as much stock in psychics and channellers and the like, which always seemed odd to her.

She can also be seen around the market, although she appears to be more focused upon getting groceries than meeting with people. She gets the usual--produce and other foodstuffs, treats for Mithra and Lakshmi--although she stops at a meat vendor and watches for a bit. Is that a small look of longing? It was so expensive, but...

Finally, once her errands are done, she can be seen at the park, letting her two pokemon get all their pent up energy out by running and chasing each other. She, however, seems content with people watching. She doesn't appear to be looking for anything or anyone in particular, but has a bit of a smirk on her face, as if there's some joke there that only she gets.]

[VIDEO BROADCAST; MORNING OF SATURDAY, JUNE 14]

Goood morning, everyone!

If you don't know, I'm Maya Fey, master of the Kurain School of Channelling here in Ninetails Vale-- the Northwest district of Union.

With the recent battle efforts over, on behalf of the Fey and Tenma clans, my cousin Jinxie and I would to extend an invitation of welcome to any refugees who may be looking for shelter.

[ACTION LOG; OPEN TO ALL]

What: An interaction log for anyone wishing to explore the Kurain School, talk to Jinxie and Maya about training, and also possibly talk to their duskulls.
Where: Northwest corner of union, the Fey Manor (Kurain School Side) in Ninetails Vale district
