[Rikku has been pointedly ignoring all things Gigan related because she grew up in Sanctuary, she is not interested in anything but forgetting those meanies exist.

Besides, she has work to do, which is why today's video comes to live via a Murkrow holding her band while Rikku pokes at something on a worktable.]


So I was thinking. Is there any kind of...big Engineer union or head honcho type person or something around here that'll make getting parts and maybe commissions easier? Because I'm still pretty new here and dunno where all the good stuff is or who needs what and I've gotta find a second job soon--rebuilding won't last forever!

[Sorey is incredibly excited to get to explore all of Union and its ruins, but he's been holding off on the ruins until Mikleo got back from Gigas so they could go exploring together.

And he's back, so that means Sorey is trying to find where the blazes he's supposed to get a lantern. His Eevee is just sitting at his feet, yawning while Sorey looks around the Union shopping district a bit confused]


There's got to be a supply shop around here somewhere...or even a bookstore.

Closed to Mikleo

[Mikleo is met by Sorey's Eevee whenever he gets back to where they're staying since Sorey's gone to get dinner. Mab nearly trips him as he runs over and rubs himself all over Mikleo's ankles. Looks like he was worried]

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.]

[When the feed first turns on, there's a little bit of fumbling with it with a soft "Ah, so that's how it works..." before the feed's turned around pretty quickly a boy comes into view.]

Maia, can you hold onto this for now? [There's a squeaky "Es!" as the Warp Band finally steadies a little.]

... Um. Hi, everyone. [Well. Someone certainly didn't practice this. He swallows, and there's a bit of an awkward pause before he continues.] Uh... my name's Geo Stelar. I'm an Engineer who's just getting started on making stuff, and I'd like to start getting some practice in to work my way up to bigger stuff, so... if there's something anyone wants to order, I'm gonna be selling things through the Spearowfeathers? I'm mostly gonna do fishing rods and evolution stones for now...

[He fidgets a bit, looking a little uncomfortable.] Uh, that's it, thank you for your time, everyone!

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.

[Lulu has been in Union for a few days now, arriving as soon as she heard words about Glacier and some other mumbles she doesn't really quite understand yet. 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.))

[It's a lengthy journey even by air, that our intrepid heroes find themselves on. The veteran fliers set a quick, but not grueling pace at the suggestion of the Valkyries. Arriving to a battleground when a god had taken the field tired was not wise, they'd said, and who could really blame them? The prospect alone of facing down one of the beasts of legend would be enough to send most men fleeing in the opposite direction, but one who was working with a human? That was all the more reason to make sure that proper care was taken on the trek. And so for a day the party traveled, a caravan of birds, dragons, reptiles and the odd flying robot making steady time across the Rolling Plains before setting down at the north-eastern edge.

The curious would find that not far from where the tents were pitched, the green hills turned jagged, the land going from verdant to a sea of dark glass. Obsidian shards spiked upwards, spires gleaming in the moonlight like razor sharp teeth, setting an ominous tone for the evening's respite. Tents were pitched, fires were lit, and the more warlike companions even began a drum circle and dance. Valkyries and shirtless Calderan volunteers, a small number of visiting mages, and other more mysterious folks all curious to see the god and to help with the relief efforts. The camp, despite the circumstances, was at least a lively one.

And then came the final day.

Over the Obsidian Flats they went, the massive shapes of Boldore and Tyranitar visible even from up in the sky. And...further perhaps even more stunningly, a gigantic lake almost large enough to call an inland sea, sprawled out below. Rivers snaked out of it all around, and the water itself was a pure crystal blue. But perhaps the most awe inspiring sight of the whole journey came once they cleared the Flats and the area around Glacier came into view. An expanse of white, thick snow covering the ground this early in the year. Arctic forests cropped up here and there, snowcapped trees and a frigid looking river marring the perfect canvas beneath. And more Pokemon , of course. Gigantic Avalugg shook the ground below, and a new species plodded along, chewing amiably on the trees, largely unconcerned by the humans overhead, and the occurrences in the distance.

Along the coast a city was in flames, people streaming out of its ruined gates, desperately fleeing along the rivers before whatever it was came back. Smoke curled up along the skyline, burned hamlets and outlying settlements that'd already been destroyed.

It seems like they weren't too late, and it in the moment of respite there was a chance for our heroes to at least get their bearings and prepare for the Dragon God's return...]

[The solemn city of Sanctuary, home to Mages. There's something different in the atmosphere lately, the feeling of relief of years of Gigan rule, a time for schedules to be slightly more relaxed. That's about the only real difference.

Visitors to the city, however, that was also something else. It didn't take long for rumors of the arrivals from Union to begin circulating - a small number at that, but still enough to catch attention - though the context of it varied, from gratitude to disdain, and that was about all.

Aware of their presence, but not certain how to approach them just yet, the young woman did her best to be discreet in her observations of the varied strangers over the past few days.

... still, that doesn't mean she can't be bumped into, such as when she's bringing files to an office. Or on her way to the library to wind down after a busy day... conveniently during the more quiet times of day. Some of those meetings might not be accidental.]

Business was fine, but his dad wanted to advertise a little more, and what better than to have his son do an advertisement for the store on the Warp Band? Yosuke groaned and protested, but eventually agreed. He didn't want to do this, but here he is-]

Ahem. Uh... [He reads nervously now from a paper that's heard as he uncrinkles it, with a cheerful demeanor and an apprehensive customer service voice over the feed. He really doesn't want to do this.]

This week only, Junes is offering a store-wide discount! Most items are ten to twenty-five percent off! Don't miss this great opportunity for all your shopping needs!

Every day's great at your Junes...! Heheh...! [He laughs half-heatedly, embarrassed.]

In the short amount of time that Ahri had been around Union, she's learned many new things but has also found many more questions. So many things she wanted to know more about and still. Was it all worthwhile? Things around here were much different than in the forest, more exciting for sure but also more complicated. Sure being a mischievous vixen has proven to be incredibly fun but there's more that she'd like to experience. But in turn that had also made her doubt her place. That wouldn't last long however as she's always been partial to let her curiosity and need to satisfy it guide her actions.

For now however, she was laying about a grassy area, looking to the vast skies along with the towering structures of the city itself. Every now and then she'd take a nibble of a snack she had pilfered from one of the nearby shops after causing a bit of havoc and having a bit of fun.

We've got a bunch of new faces in town, so I figured I'd remind everyone about the Prodigal Explorer, an engineering shop I own and run within Union. We can make just about any item you might want or need, including Evolutionary items for Pokemon and Mega Stones.

Additionally, if you happen to be Engineering-minded, we are accepting applications for new employees.

[OOC: If you have an Engineer that would like to join the shop staff, let me know OOCly when you initiate a thread and we'll talk it out ICly and get them on board. Otherwise, feel free to order or request items you might like for your character! Ezreal keeps the shop stocked as best he can and employees are also free to add their own items should they have a spare week]

As the characters arrive, they will find what appears to be a rather deep cavern. Upon entering, the caverns are quite narrow, with twists and turns everywhere and different tunnels that all seem to be interconnected. As characters travel deeper within the caverns, reality around them will start to warp, they will start to see and hear things that aren’t necessarily there - images of old enemies, past failures, voices of condemnation, visions that strike at the soul and core of the characters. Once this begins, it will only increase in power and volume, demanding it be confronted, lest they be trapped within these caves forever.

[OOC: This event will run for a week. All characters who enter the caves will be subject to some of their deepest fears, darkest demons, and most abject failures. To overcome them, characters must help each other out, finding their purpose through strength of character and resolve to move forward. In general, these visions should require characters to come to grips with themselves. Illusory images and voices can and will appear and can take any number of forms, depending on what is most appropriate to a character. Additionally, characters may thread with each other and are encouraged to help each other out to overcome these personal demons. For those who wish to take part, they are able and encouraged to narrate their own personal demons, which will be on display for everyone who enters their thread. IC threads may be made in this post.]

It's the morning of the 21st and it's clear even to the inexperienced Unionite, Refugee, or Citadel resident that the city has a different air to it. If it wasn't the atmosphere that got them, then the stalls lining the streets would. Many people are still working on getting set up for the night festival, but the stalls that are complete are lining many corners and they are filled to the brim with bright colors. From afar, the streets look like someone threw a rainbow of paint across the city.

They haven't seen anything yet.

It's not yet time for the festivities so any visitors are free to wander the streets. The natives seem to be delighted if amused at all the people interested in the holiday and are happy to sell anyone as much colored powder as the want. Sometime close to noon is when things change. The natives all kind of stop what their doing. The colored stalls start to close up and everyone looks tense.

A long, rattling trumpet sound rings through the streets and that is when all hell breaks loose.

It's every man and pokemon for themselves. Have fun everyone.

It’s just after midnight when the column arrives outside of Sanctuary, shrouded in darkness under the pitch black of a new moon. Bordered by mountains to the north, the city has two primary gates to the West and the East, both of which are shut tight with massive oaken doors, centuries old and further secured with an antique portcullis. The city itself is surrounded by walls of stone, easily one-fourth the height of those found in Union and about twice the height of many of the homes, sturdy stone buildings with triangular roofs, about the same size as Calderan homes. Like Union, there are many towers within the city, but unlike Union, the towers are cold, aloof structures that stand alone with no connection to the other towers. The city itself is stone, cold, gray, and unfeeling, with small drops of light from streetlamps which line the streets, emitting an eerie blue-white glow. This is Sanctuary. Home of the Magi, conquered by Gigas for forty years. This is the city that must be reclaimed.

[OOC: If you did not choose to take the Pokeballs (you don’t have to have affirmed in an NPC thread, it’s entirely up to the character), they may have either 1 large Pokemon or 2 small Pokemon. A large Pokemon is classified as any Pokemon that is 4’ tall or long per the official Pokedex guidelines, anything smaller is considered a small Pokemon. Without the aid of Pokeballs the Pokemon will be required to be out and active throughout the log, and will not be able to be recalled or sent away if they are injured and must be carried if knocked out. As always, please limit yourself to 2 major actions in the log, and declare all Pokemon accompanying you in your first tag to a log. As always, to keep the logs moving, we will be responding every 24 hours.]

1. Action, around Union in the general vicinity of Gilgamesh Wulfenbach's Workshop

Throughout the day, a duo (and by duo we mean "pretty much only Ezreal") have been moving back and forth between the workshop and any number of other areas. He can usually be seen carrying large and rather heavy looking loads of scrap. Ancient Golem the Tyranitar, Dragon the Charizard and Vilemaw the Metagross have unfortunately also been conscripted to assist, and none of them seem to be in a particularly good mood about that, judging by the low, constant stream of bitching and swears coming from Ezreal's mouth as he carries and inevitably drops the large pallets

2. Action, inside Gilgamesh Wulfenbach's Workshop

Later that night, the door has been flung open, likely due to the immense heat emanating from the workshop. Ungodly sounds, banging, clanking, drilling, and the occasional explosion can be heard, as well as the occasional explosion of human voices

"No you can NOT set the drill frequency that high! You'll melt the rock straight into the cockpit you moron!"

3. Video

Gilgamesh stood before a massive, vaguely cylindrical shape under a cloth cover. He cleared his throat before speaking.

"If we are to be fighting underground, then we should take heed to remember that our battles are not limited to a mere two dimensions. Nor should we limit ourselves to the tunnels that already exist. To that end, I have built a device that will offer our forces considerable tactical advantage. BEHOLD!"

He ripped aside the covering to reveal what looked like a giant metal can, with a horrifying array of drill bits attached to one end and spiked tank treads running along the sides.

"My tunneling engine is fully capable of boring through ten yards of solid granite in an hour, allowing us to strike at Gigas's forces from just about anywhere in the tunnel network. The main compartment holds up to six people. And if the passengers are carrying some of Ms. Ryuuko's pokeballs, that can turn into a sizeable raiding party quite quickly.

With the power of SCIENCE on our side, Gigas' defeat is inevitable!"
