[ There was a long discussion in the Chevalier household when they found the letter. Cordelia was far more worried than she would ever let on. Who was this "Miss Saber," and why did Rin feel it necessary to sneak off like that?!

The two adults discussed what they would do for quite some time, well into the evening. When the young magi finally made her way home, she would find that the lights in the main room were still on. Should Rin attempt to teleport her way into her room and avoid facing her guardians altogether, she will find a small addition to the note she left, in Cordelia's handwriting. ]

Please come downstairs. We wish to speak with you about your outing today.

[ Should she try to avoid that as well? She'll find Aura, Robin's Espeon, sitting peacefully on her bed as sentry. ]

Seeking someone to watch 8 Eevee Evolutions and 1 Eevee for a night. Experience dealing with troublesome, energetic Pokemon preferred. Loving home is a must. Will pay.

How has everyone been? Cordelia and I have been quite busy of late, my apologies for being unavailable. Married life is, as it happens, keeps your free time rather limited, but I must say it is highly recommended! The recent contact with the city of Sanctuary has lead to some rather interesting revelations! I'd always noticed my abilities were somewhat different from that of the normal Enlightened. Once I learned the name, it all fell into place, and my eyes were able to reveal the truth. Apparently, I am Magi, as the Enlightened of Sanctuary are. It's a rather fascinating development! I still am not certain how I ended up here at all, but it would explain why nobody has recognized me before. Perhaps I managed to make it near to Union before meeting a grisly end, only to reawaken alive and bereft of memory within the Forest Shrine! At the very least it's interesting to speculate about.

Action, around Union

[With Spring arriving, Robin has more freedom to go outside. And so it is that he is in one of the ground-level courtyards with all of his Eevees, drilling them. While those who know Robin might know that his Eevees are lazy and rather mischievous while at home, today there is no trace of that at all. They move with military precision, as if they are a small army working together and moving in tight formations with great grace and skill.

However, because they are all Eevee evolutions, it's still the most adorable goddamn thing you've seen in awhile, to be sure]

[ She was never particularly good at these things, but considering recent events, it was reasonably necessary. Taking a breath, Cordelia pauses before finally speaking into the camera. ]

Hello, my name is Cordelia. I imagine some of you know me, and some of you may not. I have been an acting member of the Rangers for a few years and, formerly, an officer with the Swords of the Savior before taking an extended leave of absence.

A leave that will be lifted, effective immediately.

[ She smiles a bit at the camera, closing her eyes. Yes, this actually felt good. She continued. ]

My duties will be slightly different this time around, as I will still be working primarily with the Rangers. I will be working as a warrant officer, acting as a training officer for new recruits, as well as helping spearhead a new cavalry division alongside the Rangers.

There are many of you whom I have yet to meet. I look forward to doing so in the coming weeks. You can find me on the training grounds.


[ Hello Union! This is Rotom, and it will be your guide for this adventure! Turning the feed toward itself, the pokemon waves at the camera--which it holds entirely too close to its face, so it appears to be more of a close-up of its eye with an occasional lightning bolt-shaped appendage waving in front of it--before turning it back around.

You're in for a treat today, everyone! Rotom has some exclusive footage, never before seen by anybody! Remember that tall, possibly somewhat intimidating red-haired workaholic woman talking about the Swords earlier? ]

That's a very good boy, Eevee! Now jump!

[ Holding her arms in a ring-shape, the redhead cheered as her Eevee soared through. The two did this again a few times, before moving on to some other tricks. Both seemed to be really into it. Contest circuit, here they come!

Eevee noticed the cameramon first, barking a few times before sauntering over. WAS IT TIME FOR HIS CLOSEUP? DID YOU SEE HIS COOL TRICK??? ]

Eevee, what are you--

[ Turning toward the camera, Cordelia stopped, the gears turning in her head. Rotom. Warp Band. The "RECORDING" light was on.


Oh Savior did everyone just see that? Her face turned a deep shade of red before she charged forward. ]

R-Rotom! Stop! Turn that off right now!!

[ The camera charges forward toward a wall, Rotom snickering the entire way. It looks like the pokemon assumed it could take the Band with it when it passed through the wall, but instead the feed is treated to a close up shot of it before falling to the ground. After a few seconds, Cordelia picks up the band, looking extremely embarrassed.

Eevee barks excitedly in the background. More games! This was great! Cordelia let's do the thing again! =D ]

Please... forget what you saw. For everyone's sake.

[ now there's a new face on the network. if you've had to do with smiths lately you may have run into Thorin before, but that's about it. he's got a gruff look about him, somewhat unimpressed. ]

Since one of the librarians has taken it upon himself to ban me from the relevant sections of the library, [ that may have been a wry smile there but it's gone very quickly, ] I was wondering if one of you could tell me something about the history of Union. The story of the Saviour aside.

[ was there anything else- right. yes. perhaps he should give his reasons. and his name. ]

My name is Thorin. I came here from Caldera a few months ago, but have not had the chance to ... immerse myself in the culture.

[ not that he's all sure he wants to. something off to the side catches his eye, and he closes the feed with a nod. ]

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!]

[He'd heard they had video on the Warp Bands but his old one hadn't had that feature. Maybe it's a good thing this one does.

Martin is in a room in the medical center when he starts it. Which is the problem. He died. He's not supposed to be back in the medical center two months later decidedly not dead and an Enlightened!

But he's back and now he has to adjust to these sharp little claw-nail-things on his fingers on top of everything else. What is his life?

Before Martin gets a chance to say anything, a Budew grabs the band and starts poking at it.]

No, Laterose, not right now.

[The Budew goes out of sight and Martin focuses it back on him with a sigh]

Um. I...I'm not quite sure what to say right now. I'm back? Is that what you say when you die and wake up two months later in the Forest? Is this normal for Enlightened?

[He clearly has more questions but cuts himself off]

Anyway. Could someone catch me up on the last two months?

I have a question for all of you! What are good hunting and foraging spots within the Verdant Forest? I'm trying to save up a bit of money, and unfortunately that means I've had to cut a lot of things out of my diet.

Food in general, for the most part.

I asked my Eevees to make similar sacrifices but they weren't too keen on that so there you go. Anyway, I've been relying a lot more on food I can find myself, but I find I'm still a bit hungry more often than not and Pokemon food really doesn't taste very good at all. Any suggestions?

Who: Lenna Charlotte Tycoon, the Kagamine twins, and open invite for all
What: A Soulfast-themed charity concert and dance
When: Sunday night
Where: The Tycoon family estate
Summary: Lenna is hosting a charity event to benefit Union's poor and homeless population, along with refugees from war-torn communities outside Union's walls and people who are moving into the city but need some help while they get on their feet.  The entire city is invited, and donations are not required but are strongly encouraged in the form of Lenna smiling and making big moe eyes at everyone as they enter until they do.

[It's the beginning of the Soulfasting holiday, and despite the complications with Cresselia and Darkrai, Lenna has miraculously managed to pull together the final preparations for her charity event at the last minute.  The party itself is being held at the Tycoon mansion in the noble quarter, and the doors have been opened for any and all who wish to come and make merry.

The spacious foyer of the house has been set up with numerous tables with food and drink for the various attendees, plenty of room for dancing and mingling, and of course a large stage at the front of the room set up for Rin and Len Kagamine - Lenna's roommates and the headline performing act of the night.  There are donation boxes situated around the room, and Lenna will also be accepting larger donations personally so that she can secure them elsewhere in the house.

And because of the time of year, there is also a table set up with plenty of Pokemon-themed masks for people to wear, with a fancy sign hand written in calligraphy: 'Courtesy of the Tatsumi Gallery.'  Lenna herself is wearing a
short red party dress with matching heels, greeting everyone as they enter and more or less just buzzing about making sure everyone is having a good time.]

Well! This was quite the morning shock! I can't say "experiencing being a woman" was high on my list of things to do, but it is nevertheless a rather interesting one indeed! This is Robin, by the way. I imagine the new form would make that a bit difficult to discern.

So, a question for you all, good people of Union, Caldera, and most recently the Citadel. I've been noticing the trend of Enlightened and even normal trainers hold a certain typing affinity. In Enlightened, of course, it is their own typing but trainers who might otherwise be considered ordinary have their own specializations as well. So, when crafting a team, what is the strategy? Do you create a team solely of the typing you specialize in? Do you branch out to cover the types you do not possess? I am quite interested in hearing your opinions!

[ Video ]

[ The video feed turns on to show a close-up of an Eevee's face. It seems to be peering curiously, and there's a flash of what might be a familiar black and purple cloak just visible behind her.

The voice that shoos away the Pokémon is obviously female, though. ]
Umbra, you're going to have to move. I can't even tell if this is working with you there!

[ The Eevee moves to show a girl with shockingly white hair and odd cloak - isn't it too hot for that sort of clothing? She seems pleased, though. ] Ha! It is working! I knew I could figure it out!

[ Her grin fades for a moment. ] ....Right, that doesn't sound weird at all.... [ Let's try this again- ]

Hello, Union. My name's Robin! I'm new to the city, and I was hoping I could get a push in the right direction for... well, several things, really.

I'm looking for a place to live, for one. I don't have much, just a few books and changes of clothing, so I don't take up much space. As comfortable as the benches in your city may be, I'd like something a little more substantial. I don't have much money now, but I hope I can find work quickly enough, and I can always work doing chores until then.

...And secondly, a job. I can translate from several dead languages, I can fight fairly well, and can work well with Pokémon. Anywhere I can put any of those skills to use would be welcome.

And... ah, it's a pleasure to meet you?

[ Action ]

[ After trying her hand at asking for information over this new-fangled network, Robin can be found wandering around the city. She's easy to spot, what with her strange black cloak with purple eyes on the sleeves and Eevee running around her legs or riding on her shoulder.

Mostly, she's either looking at apartments or asking for work in shops, both of which she's having a spectacularly hard time having any luck with. Feel free to help her out, ask what she's doing, or tell her that her Eevee is annoying. ]

Who: Pamela Isley and OPEN
What: Pamela’s 19th birthday party. Everyone is invited.
When: July 18th
Where: The Isley manor

[Although Pamela’s mother Cordelia Isley is a known socialite, the Isleys don’t often throw parties – or not large ones, anyhow. Pamela’s father Walter Isley is a high ranking Engineer and a workaholic, so most Isley parties are just small affairs organized solely by Cordelia, or sometimes by Pamela’s grandparents, Hugh and Jocasta. In the latter case, the parties tend to be for an older crowd.

In light of Pamela’s nineteenth birthday, her recent evolution, and her involvement in the diplomatic relations between Union and Caldera, her grandparents felt generous and decided to throw a large party. Pamela herself had been hoping for a small event, but her grandparents and mother were having none of it. So Pamela took it upon herself to personally improve her grandparents’ front yard and garden. There’s a long winding path leading up to the Isley home, thoroughly adorned with flowers that are in full bloom.

The invitation was extended to everyone in Union as well as their Calderan visitors. Although nowhere near the entire city is here, there’s still a fairly large turnout of people from all social stations ranging from poor to nobility.

(ooc: Changed the date from the 19th to the 18th so that characters can attend without clashing with the upcoming game plot!)

[The last time she had been to the estate was for her aunt's birthday, and, quite frankly, it hadn't been long enough. This time, she made quite clear to her parents--particularly her mother, multiple times--was purely for business; there has been word of some goings on that needed the rangers' attention, and, as an adviser to their mission, she, along with her assigned analyst, needed to meet with her father.

So, of course, when the two of them arrived, there was a large welcoming party of servants and family.

This was going to be a long day...]


[After finally going through the grueling process of "negotiating", and the long line of questions from her mother, Cordelia managed to get away, retreating to her old room. Everything was as it had been, which was a blessing in disguise.

After a few moments, music began cascading down the hall from the open door. A full-sized harp, resting close to her bed, rested against her shoulder. It had been too long since she was able to play.]


[Later in the evening, Cordelia can be found hiding out at a table in Teeters, a stein of some kind of alcohol sitting next to her. Her head is down, hair haphazardly thrown over her face, and she is otherwise draped over the tabletop. The poor thing looks positively miserable and could use a hug.

Or another drink.

Or heckling.

Really, she probably could do without any of those things, but she wasn't going to get out of it, was she?]

video; | late evening

[The video message currently being broadcasted might be the most uninformative recording yet. Two little fox-like Pokémon yipping over the call, both seem frantic.. –connection is soon lost. The mountain top’s blizzard is raging too harshly.]

action; | morning of the 17th, Union.

[Whether you saw the video or not both little Fennekins have made their way back to Union somehow. Wandering around but not mindlessly or seemingly lost. No, quite the opposite, they both seem to know where they are going.

A little odd for Pokemon not native to Union.]
Fenn!! Fen..!

[The struggle is almost adorable, like one of those cute Pokemon warp-band videos where Puruglys attempt swimming or baby Lillipups tumble over each other. The one little Fennekin can’t make his way up the steps to the upper-class district… try as he might those steps are built larger then all others in Union. Aww—the poor thing's starting to whimper (against his will…)

While the one Fennekin hopped the other ventures, sniffing out the nearest food vendor... the poor things is starving. Big, round, green eyes glare up at the fruit stand… waiting to make his move. Suddenly—SNATCH! The owner is wailing over this small little fox who has stolen his product. (Without paying!! How rude?)

Why a Fennekin would steal an apple in the first place… The little thing just runs away with the apple in his mouth, going off to hide somewhere...]

( ooc: you may reply to either Asch or Luke. Put the Fennekin you're replying to's name in the subject line. The video post can't be replied to. )
