Greetings, Union!


[ It's Gwendolyn! With a burbling Firesong the Fletchling on her left shoulder, and a shivering pile of Cherrim leaves poking over the right. She's smiling, trying her best to look as much the diplomat as possible, but it's clear that she's excited in spite of herself.

Dressed as formally as ever for the Valkyrie, there is one key difference in her appearance today - three feathers are attached to the left side of her hairband, a bright contrast to her silver hair: two yellow feathers flanking a longer blue one.
]


Some of you may have noticed some excitement amongst the Valkyrie and others from Citadel in the past few days. Well, that is because this coming week marks the start of the Citadel Games! These are an annual tradition throughout the months of Spring, where athletes show off their athletic prowess in a number of activities, and the preliminaries will be held at the Great Tree all next week!

You have everything from relay racing to Caldera rules rugby to wrestling to gymnastics, as well as an exhibition match of the Dragonite Races! Both humans and pokémon have their own events, in addition to traditional doubles and partnership matches, along with sports from both Caldera and Union being on display. And this year will also feature the debut of Griftorb as an official pokémon-only sport!

[her hands clap together before her, eyes shining with excitement] Rumour also has it that the annual endurance race, which is always held prior to the start of Summer, will be ending in Caldera proper this year. And the victor will be crowned on the Day of Fire! So that should prove exciting, if true.

Anyway, number of us are planning to travel there tomorrow to attend for the week. Should anyone else wish to go, you and your bond mates are welcome to travel with us!

WHO: Sophia and YOU!
WHAT: As the repairs continue, life gets back to normal in Union - for a given value of normal.
WHEN: Any time in March.
WHERE: In and around Union.




The Ranger Headquarters were spared of some of the worst damage during the attack. However, that did not mean it went completely unscathed. The damage to the building was superficial, there just happened to be a lot of it, and the quakes caused by collapsing towers and Kyurem himself had meant that there had been a lot of clean up, furniture replacement and reorganizing inside and out.

After the visit to the underground ruins near Refuge, Sophia picked right up where she left off with reorganizing the Third division's stores while Yuuna was away, the division's captain off on a ranger assignment of her own. As the Third didn't have an official quartermaster yet, she'd stepped in to manage things while making use of the room available here. Hence why you'll find her here most days, sorting out requisitions for equipment in the mornings until midday, and handing over paperwork to Waver to file in the late afternoons.

It isn't the only place Sophia's been hanging out lately, of course. Around town she's often in and out of the market on work business, though she does like to stop by a café for a bite to eat in the mornings. She's also started popping up now and again over in the industrial district, lodging work requests with suitable engineers for replacement pieces needed by the rangers, and, sometimes, just to chat about the work. Her doublade companion is a constant at these times, Ymir glaring at anyone who comes too close whether they be friend or foe.

If she's not in town, she may instead be found outside the walls - only occasionally, however, with both Elhaz the Ivysaur and Ymir in tow. She doesn't hang about the camps set up for the allied forces: instead, she'll be found further in the forest, closer to the Shrine, where the peace and quiet and greenery make for a safe place to practice with her powers without attracting too much attention....probably.



[ OOC: Action or Prose welcome! Feel free to run into Sophia at any of the above locations, or play a Wildcard and pick your own setting. You can also PM me or poke me on plurk at [plurk.com profile] farlichu! c: ]

After weeks of repairs, tightened sanctions on incoming immigrants and the general feeling of unease that hangs heavy around the city of Union, the Council finally comes to a decision. It is not unanimous by any accounts, and there are many that wonder if this is the right approach. Union has existed for generations behind its great walls, and there were those who felt that it was that way of life that they should return to—one of solitude and skepticism. However, in light of recent events, the desire for security has own over the need for seclusion.

An announcement comes over the Warp Band, still hazy from the attacks on the Signal Tower. But it is not the face of a Councilmen that the citizens and visitors of Union are met with, but, rather, the youthful face of one of the leaders of the Seekers.

“Citizens and friends of Union—is that seriously what they wrote? Man, it feels weird talking like that, can I just say ‘hey you guys?’ Whatever. Everyone. We’ve got some big news, so listen up.” Maeve groans at the feed, tossing aside some paper, likely an official statement penned by some Council member. “So, the Council has decided that they want to take a more proactive approach after the attack by Sveta, Alina and their friends, and it comes to me to give you the juicy details.”

Okay, actually maybe she did need that paper. Leaning over in her chair, she ducks off the stream to reclaim the statement. “The Council has asked for volunteers to come together and investigate three possible leads for both our ‘friends’ with the Elite Four, Gigas, as well as some interesting goings-on in and around Refuge: a settlement to the west with supposed ties to Gigas; the inner caves of Refuge; and to the east of Glacier, in the direction which the great dragon fled.

“Now don’t all come flooding in all at once, I know how you Unionites get excited about stuff like this. Groups will disembark immediately, so get any supplies you can and meet up at the Seeker’s HQ before heading out. You’ll be given briefs upon your assignment into a group. If you have any questions, you can ask me or Captain Pirate Krabbypants, Ceilto. Maeve, out.”

Once they arrive, each person will be assigned a group, and after a quick briefing, begin moving to their destination within the day. Most take no more than a few days to arrive at their destination, and will immediately be put to work.

[All event logs are now live! As usual, mod tags will come every 24 hours. Feel free to post all IC questions to the Maeve top level and all OOC questions in the standard mod top level. During this log, several NPCs from prior events may appear. The event is scheduled to last a week and will end at midnight on the morning of March 5th.]

Proposal Day is upon us! A day of romance and affection - whether you want to put up with that or not! After the attack, the people of Union are eager to get back to normal life, and the holiday presents the perfect opportunity to at least make the attempt. For couples, it’s a day of dates, romantic outings, and elaborate proposals. For non-couples, well, there’s always single’s night at Teeters, or staying home eating Citadel food and watching TV. You know, whatever.

This is an open mingle post for those looking to celebrate (or try to avoid) Proposal Day festivities. We’ve also provided a few prompts for your convenience!

1. A ring is the most sacred symbol of marriage and a time-honored proposal tradition. As such, jewelers are out in force, offering both rings and other fine jewelry, typically exorbitantly priced, at major discounts, making them slightly less exorbitantly priced! It’s everywhere, are YOU ready to buy a ring for that special someone?
2. The parks, restaurants, and shopping plazas are absolutely full of couples today. With so many people out and about it’s crowded and difficult to get anywhere. Whether you’re partaking in the festivities or just trying to get somewhere, you’ll probably be waiting for a bit. Once you get there though, the decorations are quite festive, as are the many street vendors with delicious smelling food tempting you to try some!
3. The Chansey Cafe is baking up some special Cheer-Up Cupcakes, which are being sold in sets of two. Those who are helping with the relief effort in Union will receive a discount.
4. Street Performers are out in force and music is filling the streets and walkways of Union. Mostly romantic songs, of course, but there are a few counter-culture Street Performers that are playing that new, scandalous “Blues” music everyone’s been talking about.
5. It’s Single’s Night at Teeters! Union’s most notorious dive bar is open to everyone trying to get away from all this Proposal Day nonsense. The beer is overpriced and watered down, the atmosphere is terrible, and it’s full of people who are almost certainly going to do something they’ll regret in the morning! What could possibly go wrong?
6. They’re running a marathon of The Lone Pikachu on TV. Better than nothing?
7. Wildcard! Come up with your own prompt.

The warriors of Union fought hard, and in the end, victory was their reward. Seeing the battle lost, the fanatics of the Elite Four fled into the night, those that were not killed or captured of course. Sveta was nowhere to be seen, nor was her mysterious companion, and as its rage was reaching its peak, the mighty Dragon simply vanished in a blaze of energy, recalled by its trainer but not before slamming the mysterious red dragon into another tower for good measure.

As quickly as they had come, the gods of Union vanished, leaving behind the ruined, devastated city. What was once panic has subsided to a quiet shock and horror as the dead and wounded are gathered and people try to find out what was damaged and if their family and friends are still among the living.

While the damage is great, the defenders of Union can take heart in the fact that it could have been much, much worse. The habitat suffered a major blow with a great hole blasted into it, but it is otherwise undamaged and salvageable. The forge likewise had one smithy station destroyed from a divine claw smite, but is otherwise unscathed. The signal tower took moderate damage from the initial attack, but it is reparable, given time. The biggest toll, however, is on that of the people. The Residential District, as well as parts of the Entertainment district lie in tatters. Several towers are gutted, and a few even fell completely, many of the citizens inside them trapped and unable to escape. In all, the death toll numbers around 700, with at least 1,000 wounded, and is expected to rise as rescuers desperately comb the wreckage in search of survivors. Never before has Union lost so many of its citizens, never before has such suffering and violence come to Union. People are afraid, they are angry, but, in the true spirit of Union, they are banding together. The City of Union has survived. But it will never be the same.

The battle is joined. The gods of Union, while mighty, seem to pale in comparison to the singular dragon of ice. Although they strive mightily to avoid damaging the city, already the mysterious blue dragon has been flung directly into a tower, earning itself a nasty gash over its eye, much to the dismay of the red dragon. While it has rejoined the fight, it is clear that the gods alone are not enough - the people of Union will have to step forward if they are to save their beloved city. The cries of the wounded and terrified citizens echo through the streets as the flames of battle rage. Now is the time - they must be stopped!

Around dinner time, all active Warp Bands come to life, a familiar visitor’s face flooding into view. Sveta looks to be broadcasting from a small, furnished room, likely provided by the council for temporary lodging. The lamplight flickers, and she takes a deep breath, smiling. She can hardly contain her excitement as she begins to speak.

“Hello citizens of Union! As you may know, my name is Sveta, a member of the Elite Four from the distant city of Ever Grande. I, along with my colleague Alina and a few others, came to you a few days ago after hearing the stories of your people, and after speaking at length with those around your beautiful city. I can say now with the utmost conviction that we wish for the same world, a place where pokémon and humans can live together in peace and prosperity. We do not have to be governed by the mistakes of the past; we can walk forward, hand-in-hand, toward a perfect and just future.

“The Gods have brought us together, the people of Ever Grande and the people of Union. I believe that now with every fiber of my being! This is divine fate, it is destiny, and we cannot ignore its call!”

Standing, the view shifts, and her expression changes slightly. While still animated, her eyes flash with excitement, and a bit of disdain.

“But there are those who would stand in our way. They place humanity’s needs first, believe that they are the true inheritors of the earth. That was the type of hubris that nearly eradicated the human race from existence. They deserved that fate. Humanity torched the soil, molded it, corrupted it, poisoned it. They attempted to play God, and they were punished for their transgressions.

The Elite Four will not stand for those that might repeat history to rise again. We, along with the people of Union, will act out the Gods’ will, for we are their chosen. It is our job, no, our duty to educate those who do not wish to see the error of their ways—if not with words, than with action. Those who oppose us will see a quick, merciless end; it is the only way.”
Throwing her arms out for emphasis, the icy crystal holding her hair back glows, and frosty fractals begin to materialize on the molding around her room. Her breath comes out in puffs as her energy level reaches a crescendo.

“That we were born in the same era is a blessing of the Gods themselves! Friends, let us create peace together, one where pokémon can live together in peace and harmony! There is no better time than now. We stand on the precipice of change, and together we can soar toward a brave new world!”

And with that, the feed ends.

[ When the warp band flickers to life, the image is held steady, revealing a rather serious-looking young woman with silvery hair and dark blue eyes. Though her shoulders are bare, the rest of her body is clad in plate mail, with feathers shaped to form wings on either side of her face. A bright blue swablu is perched on her left shoulder, still puffy with the fluff of the recently hatched.

Her lips press into a thin line, before she takes a breath to address her viewers.

I am Gwendolyn of the Ragnanival Tribe. I have been sent here to represent them in Union on behalf of the Citadel, and offer our strength in battle if Union would have use of it. It is the least we can offer, after the aid your people gave us.

[she shifts very slightly, looking momentarily uncomfortable] I have also brought a gift on behalf of my tribe, some arms and armor that may be of interest to those among you who are warriors. Our craftsmen are noted for the fine quality of their blades.

I am also told there are other Valkyrie present within the city. I would be grateful if I could be directed to them.

...Thank you for your time.

[Action: Verdant Forest]

[It's still very chilly for day trips into the forests outside the city, but even with the wintry weather Raine tries to make an effort to step outside of the walls to gain more of an understanding of the surrounding area and allow her Pokemon to do so as well. It's another form of studying, this wandering practice, considering how much time she ends up spending in the library, especially now with working there as well.

Today's trip, however, features both the Oddish and the Eevee as her companions, the pair that came with her from Sanctuary. Both are wearing little knitted scarves, and the jittery Oddish is huddled up in a small blanket on the ground, while the Eevee paces the general area, curious but cautious.]


See? It's not so bad out here. You two barely get out enough as it is... and this area seems quiet enough.

[For now, anyway. If those two don't get startled.

Of course, if anyone needs to reach her, they can through the warp band.]

[ Closed to Yuuna ]

[ Two days have passed since her arrival in Union, and very little in the way of change has occurred where Sophia's memories are concerned: still absent, with no explanation as to why nor medical reassurance that they will return any time soon.

But they would return.

..Probably.

At least, that was the hope, even if it felt rather small right now. But for the moment Sophia had a different predicament on her hands: the temporary board at the ranger station was exactly that, and now that they were assured that she was well (memories excepted), she would now need to find her own way out in the world. Though not alone!

The nurse who'd kept an eye on her the day before (and had asked any number of strange-seeming questions to boot) had ushered her into the lounge used by off-duty rangers with the request to wait - someone would be 'along soon' to lend her a hand with getting started. It is here that Yuuna will find her: sitting stiffly, near-perfect poise disguising her unease as Sophia leafs through one of the reports that had been left open on a side table. A cooling cup of tea sat untouched, while a well-mended cloak had been left on the back of her chair.

Her pokemon companion is almost conspicuous in his absence.
]


[ ACTION: AROUND UNION - OTA ]

[ Over the course of the next week, Sophia takes the time to explore what she can of Union, map in hand and pensive expression on her face. If this is to be her home, temporarily or otherwise, she should try put in the effort to get to know it. Right..?

Good idea, in theory. But far easier said than done in practice thanks to the Salvation celebrations! Between map routes being cut off by festive stands peddling wares for the season, decoratively hidden street signs and getting temporary getting waylaid by well intentioned Delibirds, it is certainly an interesting impression to gain of the world for the first time.

Ymir, meanwhile, simply glowers at everyone and everything, the Honedge managing to radiate the most sour levels of dourness with that singular eye as he floats along beside her. Someone is definitely not feeling the Christmas Salvation Spirit!

[There's no preamble. Vin is just broadcasting and immediately talking, now that she understands how this thing works. She stares down at the Warp Band.]

I'm not sure if I'm doing it right. Watch.

[She pulls back, to show her first (and only) Pokemon: a big, hulking Mightyena. It glares at the Warp Band with baleful eyes... and growls.]

Soonie, sit.

[Today when Rei addresses the Warp Band, it's in her most formal attire, her clothing perfectly pressed and everything about her as positively lovely as can be. It's important to her to present this face to Union, for both of them. And for her family name. She didn't care much about how her father perceived it, but she didn't want to make trouble within the Council either. It might make things harder on Ninetales Vale, and she couldn't have that. She had responsibilities, and she had her reasons, and to be honest? She wanted to look good for the announcement.

Clearing her throat, hands folded out of view, Rei speaks in a solemn voice.]


Good afternoon, everyone. This is Rei Hino, High Priestess of Hikawa Shrine and daughter-heir of Councilman Takashi Hino. I know it's been some time since I actually broadcast anything, but something happened to me a few days ago. I've been trying to process all of it, to sort out my thoughts. As many of you know, Ami Mizuno and I have been courting one other for some time now.

[She takes a breath, lets it out, and stares significantly at the camera.]

That chapter of our lives has now come to a close. We are no longer dating.

[Lowering her eyes, Rei smiles a wispy little smile and raises her hand to show off a ring.]

We are engaged to be married, and plan to do so within the next year. I want to thank each and every one of you for your support during our courtship, and for your continued support during the transition. It brings joy to my heart knowing that some of you took time out of your day to help her with her proposal plan.

[Her eyes flick up, her lips peeling back in the happiest smile she's ever given in any sort of public appearance. It's as much a dig at a certain someone as it is an expression of genuine delight.]

Thank you for listening, and Happy Salvation to all of you.

[Closing down the feed, Rei lets out a breath and awaits the inevitable flood of visitors, neighbors and callers. It's going to be a busy day.]

((ooc: Ami may threadjack threads here and there, and Rei can be found in Hikawa Shrine if you'd prefer in person interactions.))

1, Narrative to inform Option 2

["Private", i.e. open to anybody in the game who might be interested in attending]

[A discreet letter is delivered to you by certified courier. Either you know Ezreal and Lux personally, you have had business dealings with them, you have gone drinking with them, you're a friend of a friend, whatever. Point being, for whatever reason you made The List. The letter reads as follows:

You are cordially invited to the wedding of Ezreal Fos and Luxanna Crownguard. The wedding will be held on the 28th of December within the Citadel, your discretion in this matter is an absolute must as the party is something of a surprise. You have been invited not only because the bride and groom feel your presence is important to them on the day of their nuptials, but also because they feel you can keep a secret. Please arrive at 5:00 PM for the ceremony, which will be followed by a banquet reception immediately thereafter. We look forward to your attendance! Please return your response with the courier who has delivered this letter.]

2, Action

[Ezreal has been working hard and making frequent trips out to Citadel so he's been scarce recently. For now, though, he's back in Union, business is hopping so he's been run pretty much ragged. Those who are looking for him, however, might find him hanging out at Teeters - hey he's legal now - for a drink after a long day of work. And with the general volume and his nice corner seat, he's available to discuss any matters that might require... secrecy.

Beyond that, he's usually at his shop. Things are pretty hectic, but sometimes he can spare a moment. Usually around closing time.]

3, Voice, locked to Garen

Look I know you're not crazy about me and the feeling's mutual but we need to talk. This is very important to Lux.

[DIVINE THEATER | ACTION]

[ At first it was just one letter. One simple letter from a fan, professing their adoration for Sanae's particularly unorthodox curtain call. Then one became two. Became six. Became countless others.

After a few days, her desk was covered. And they kept coming. Some of them even sent gifts. Flowers. Sweets. Any number of fine items suddenly found their way into her room, and eventually there was little room left for her to actually move around comfortably.

So there was Sanae, dozing on one of the couches in the common room. Or maybe going about her chores, fretting about something to herself, mumbling incoherently. She wasn't expecting this! No one was really supposed to see that sort of thing, and yet for some odd reason they loved it. She should be honored, but really she felt awkward more than anything. What should she do? ]



[VIDEO]

Um, h-hello!

[ She clears her throat, sounding surprisingly high strung. ]

I have a question. Um, you see I uh, I have a lot of, hmm... A lot of things that um, that I kind of need to get rid of. They're kind of like leftovers from soulfasting? And they're kind of taking over my room...

[ Sanae gives the camera a very uncomfortable, bashful, forced smile. ]

If anybody is interested in chocolates or candies or anything like that, I have a bunch! P-please take them off my hands!

[ She bows to the camera. ]


[LOCKED TO TAKUTO]

[ Why was this so difficult? Talking to Takuto was never hard for her--quite the opposite in fact, but for the last week, Sanae was very obviously avoiding him. Since the soulfasting performance, in fact. Was it the sudden influx of fan letters? Or the fact that the Matriarch was there to see them, to see... well, that. She received a very harshly worded letter from one of the priests after that, requesting she return to the convent for "unrelated reasons."

She knew that Takuto wanted to see her home, wanted to know more about it. This might have been the perfect time for her to allow him to see a bit of her world, but did she want to?

Hovering outside his door, she stood there, trying to encourage herself to knock. She would be leaving that evening, hadn't said a word to the others about it. She would be back before the next performance, so it would be all right. But she hesitated.

Just ask him to come along with you. It wasn't that hard. He had a right to know the sort of life she led. But she just couldn't knock. ]

After one... light prank on a guard with her magic, thankfully they took that she's just a child and helped her out on what is going on here. She even got her first Warp Band!... Whatever that is!

She is laying on her stomach, a Seedot and Flabebe shown resting in her hair longer than her body like she can use her own head as a blanket. There is something else moving in her hair too if a harmless wanderer notices. Messing with the Warp Band like point it with a stick or little glitter sparks get sparkled over it.

Aaaaaaaand-

[The view is too close to a little purple nose, a Pokemon mumbling before she pulls back a bit. Wiggling back from the Warp Band placed in front of her.]

Hellooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo... [The echo is improvised, but the young girl is shown more clearly. Purple skin, purple hair, strange furry ears and obvious signs the common Fairy type usually shows. Looks no older than a ten year old. Obviously not an Union citizen, but there is something... magical about her.]

This thing is weird, but tin heads say I gotta keep it and use it... I heard voices coming from it sometimes so is that you, city of Union? Are you the tiny voices and colorless faces?

That's so sad you guys don't have color! I can help find your colors, but I don't know where to begin. I think someone back home know how to fix it!

[Still, she waves and grins her little fangs.]

I'm Lulu! Pleased to meet all faces or voices that comes my way!

The people of Union have descended into the besieged city, doing everything in their power to aid the citizens of Glacier yet remaining within. Whether struggling against the invaders seemingly loyal to the White Dragon, or seeking out the injured and lost in need of aid, they take advantage of several hours of relative calm to do all they can. And for a time, it seems to be working - the invaders are not so very strong after all, not against the experienced Unionites who have surpassed everything from human armies to memories of gods.

But perhaps the might of the two combined is an altogether different challenge.

GRRRRRRROOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAH!

The sensation is felt throughout the whole of the city, the rumbling of the earth itself enough to take down the more unstable buildings in its wake. From any point, at any height, all eyes are drawn to the monstrosity that has descended in the blink of an eye into the still-burning town center. A great, white dragon... Exactly as described by those who had escaped from the city.

Those with sharp eyes will see that standing beside it, there seems to be a human figure.

Its sheer presence is overwhelming. The air around it ripples with an aura of heat, but felt even more keenly than that, there is a devastating sense of raw power and control. This being... this god could burn down the entire earth if it wished. A city of Glacier's relative size... What chance did it possibly have? That the world yet remains standing seems almost a mercy. Its size is immense, its bulk several times larger than that of a Wailord, its height almost seeming to rival the tallest towers of Union, though perhaps this is an exaggeration of the mind.

It takes a step forward, and the earth shudders once more in its wake.

All across the frozen city of Glacier, every individual carrying a Warp Band will suddenly feel the device activate of its own accord as a video feed begins to play. Attempting to turn it off fails, and changing it doesn't seem to work either. Something, or someone, has hijacked the feed and is using it for their own announcement.

A tall, severe looking man stares into the feed, his lone eye seeming to burn with an unnatural fire. And beside him, only its lower body visible, stands the feet of the White Dragon, its fur outlined in crisp detail from this distance. The man gazes steadily forward, eyes yet alight with passion.

"So, it seems that this place has found someone to come to its aid. No matter, our plans will not be disrupted by insects like you. Still, it's good to know that there are humans left that understand the value of kinship with our fellow inhabitants of this world. It brightens my day, you might say, to know that my men have been facing honorable opponents, and not weak cowards that still cling to the old ways.

A pity that when we're done here, we'll have to come for you next. I won't lie to you and say we'll show you mercy, but at least your deaths will be swift."

He smiles then, a thin and grave expression.

Every fiber of those remaining in the city screams to flee from this threat. There is nothing they can do - they must retreat. But though their minds may instinctively beg for such a course of action, to do so means to abandon its people to a fiery demise. Can they truly run from this?

They must choose quickly... and this time, it is not a choice concerning a rabid creature, an angered and wild animal lashing out. This cold and calculated destruction, sanctioned by a god itself, so reminiscent of what was said to have happened in the past. To oppose it, perhaps, means to steer the course of history into terrible new waters. Choose quickly, people of Union. What answer will you find?

((Reshiram is a Legendary, and thus, the normal rules will not apply. It will be able to strike through abilities that would seemingly protect people, and analysts will not be able to sense its weaknesses. It radiates an aura of power that will inspire fear and awe in those who see it. Please be warned that there is a definite chance of injury when attacking this creature; however, despite all this, it is possible to defeat it.

Have fun! And enjoy some mood music.))

The rescuers have been allowed a night's rest following their arrival on the outskirts of Glacier. Though there is ample evidence of their enemy's presence in the form of burning buildings and ruined settlements, the creature itself appears to have wandered off briefly to wreak havoc in a different corner of the frozen tundra. Or perhaps it was taking a brief siesta following so much exertion - murder and destruction was tiring work. Whatever the case, it seems to be an opportune time to descend into the city and assist those remaining there.

If they are brave, they might even try to take back the city itself. But the primary goal, of course, is to save as many people as possible before the great dragon returned.

The few people of Glacier who had guided them this far point out the less-traveled paths by which it may be possible to enter the city unnoticed. It is determined that they will fan out in groups, both in search of survivors and in search of the companions of the dragon who had so effectively laid waste to the city. Perhaps they might still gain the upper hand.

((You may respond to your threads now! Not all the groups will have immediate mod starters going up, so feel free to initiate threading; a mod will step in as soon as possible. As usual, we will be tagging on a 24-hour basis whether or not all group members have tagged in.

When responding, please list the Pokemon your character is bringing with them.

While the final portion of this event will go up on Sunday, October 4th, please also feel free to continue tagging this portion of the log as these threads will almost certainly not be finished yet.))

Video:

[Yukiko appears on the video today looking a little bit haggard and run around. Her apartment is clearly in shambles, and she's holding her head and nursing a bruise. Her voice is irritated, a little angry, even.]

Hey. Has anyone seen a group of Pokemon roaming around? A Linoone, a Sudowoodo, and a Snorlax? They...took off in a rush this morning after Rocket made a mess of my apartment and I can't find them anywhere. They'll answer to Rocket, Wroot, and Peter. Or...uh...Snor-Lord.

[Groan at that stupid nickname he'd given himself.]

Seriously, let me know so I can keep them out of trouble.


Action, Around Shopping District/Junes:

[Well would you look at that? The aforementioned trio are just taking a stroll through the shopping district, poking their heads into the various shops and such, checking out the goods. Rocket's generally riding around on Wroot's head, but sometimes he'll scuttle off and paw through piles of something. Generally fragile things, like glass vases and the like. And accidentally knock them over. He just can't seem to help himself, having to touch everything!

Eventually the group makes it to Junes, where they plunk down in the food court and seem to be holding a meeting of sorts. They've actually managed to acquire some money from somewhere, and have bought sodas. And a pair of dolls. For some reason. And they're chatting away rather loudly. Because Snor-Lord doesn't do anything quiet. At all. Ever.

Please for the love of god stop them before something bad happens...]
