Sounds like you guys were busy while I was gone. Very busy.

[New presence to some yet an old face to others. A muscled woman with winged arms and purple hair pinned up is shown, sitting on the floor covered in papers and feathers. Some her own, some belonging to Pokémon, but she looks pretty worn yet comfortable. Comfortable as in loose clothing that resembles a little bit of Calderian clothing. Hey, she needed new clothes during her months of researching.]

I'm not sure what to even say about what happened, but it's good to come home with the city in one piece? [A couple loud squawks off camera, in which she looks away towards the sound before looking back.] Val's happy too. I think he's more happy that everyone seems to be safe, but he's too proud to admit that part.

[Another yell in denial, something getting knocked over. The life of having an arrogant Braivary.]

I won't talk much about the event since I didn't experience what most of you did... I do admit, I think we will be okay. Just... We should keep our eyes open for a while. Just in case.

[In the background is a research lab, though not Gil's. There's various other people in lab coats swarming around some kind of strange rusted hulk in the background. And he's filming it because RP. Don't ask questions.]

Work continues on the artifact we found in the Old City, but at the very least I think we have a good grip on what it was.

It is a large, motorized vehicle of some kind. The configuration suggests it was built for hauling cargo, probably within the confines of some government facility or one belonging to a powerful corporation.

I can't imagine vehicles like this were very common. The infrastructure you'd need to maintain them and use them would be so immense it boggles the mind. Thousands of miles of high quality roads. Massive refueling stations everywhere. Thousands of mechanics who's whole purpose was specifically taking care of them, for such a large machine would need a lot of care. You'd need to build your entire civilization around supporting these vehicles.

And people said MY ideas were outlandish.

Studying old records has led me to believe there are some untouched pockets of old tech in the Old City that have been allowed to go unexplored because of large numbers of hostile pokemon hanging around them. I wouldn't be surprised if there was something in the old caches that was CAUSING them to be more hostile, but there's no way to find out without looking for ourselves.

Unfortunately, I'm not a delver, and I can't levitate with my mind or shoot fireballs from my eyes like some enlightened can. I want to get down there, though, so I'm proposing mounting an expedition. What one man cannot do on his own, many others working together will have no difficulty with.

[He brings out a map of the Old City and points to three red circles in a relatively small area of it.]

The caches are here, here, and here. I'd want some other engineers and probably a few delvers, plus anyone who can fight or carry heavy things around. Who's interested in advancing the cause of SCIENCE!?

Hello, everyone! Now that things are starting to calm down again, I've got a favor to ask of anyone willing to help me out.

You see, I've got a couple of Pokémon that only evolve via trading, and until now, I've been too busy to see to that myself. So, now that I have some free time, I'd like some help in evolving these Pokémon. In exchange...well, just let me know if there's anything I can do for you. If not, I'd be happy to pay you for your time.

That's all for now. Enjoy some rest -- you all have earned it.

[While all the recent chaos is certainly important, it's not the only thing happening in Union. For example, just now is a new broadcast showing the grainy warp band footage of Gilgamesh standing in what looks like some kind of elaborate machine shop.]

Exciting news! I have revolutionized the food service industry! Behold!

[He makes a dramatic gesture and the warp band camera, which is apparently being held by someone else, turns to one side a bit to show what looks like a vague caricature of a man made of steel, with polished brass highlights.]

I call it the chefclank! Using a complex logic engine and a series of prerecord end recipes, the chefclank can perfectly replicate the motions of a human chef, and prepare any meal.

Chefclank: Initiate routine coleslaw.

[the metal man jerkily comes to life, spitting little burst of steam and making faint clanking noises as it moves. It reaches off to the side and pulls out a cabbage, which it starts to chop up with a kitchen knife.]

Just imagine it! In the future, ALL of man's needs will be provided for by armies of mechanical servants like this one! Free from the tyrannical demands of survival, we will all be free to devote our lives to art, literature, or science!

[As he rambles on in this vein, the chefclank runs out of cabbage, and starts cutting up other things: a pear, a cutting board, a bowl, a hammer...Gil didn't notice until it grabbed a distressed looking scatterbug and raised the knife.]

...And that's just the start! With Union's entire workforce mechanized-WHAT ARE YOU DOING!?

[Noticing the automaton's malfunction at last, Gil flings himself over the table and tackles it before it can hurt the poor Pokemon. So did whoever was holding the camera, for the view tilted oddly as if it was dropped, and what looked like a dwarf in an enormous, body concealing coat and hat ran into view babbling unintelligably to help. All of them fell out of view, leaving viewers to guess what was happening from the sounds of them struggling on the floor.

After a minute of silence, Gil climbed back up and deposited the unharmed scatterbug on the table. His left sleeve is in tatters, and his arm has a few scratches on it.]

Well, at least I can declare the self sharpening knife a success.

Back to the drawing board.

[He reaches over and kills the feed, regretting the decision to do this live.]

Hello everyone! I hope you had a good new year. Hopefully this year will bring more good things to us and our neighbors. Last year was certainly exciting, and I get the feeling that this year will prove even more so.

On that, I have something of an announcement. I've been working on a project for quite some time now, and while I haven't been able to talk about it at length before, I'm finally allowed to speak a bit on it. I'm actually fairly excited.

Back in the summer, the Seekers chapters in Union and Caldera began doing research into a piece of technology known as a Pokédex. In old times, it acted as a portable compendium for pokémon, able to identity different species and dispense information on the fly. We were able to uncover some schematics and parts from the Old City, and since then have been working night and day to see if we could replicate this device in some way, shape or form.

Until recently, we were stumped. We could compile the information and place it into a database, but we couldn't figure out how to make it portable. However, after speaking with the elders at Refuge, we were able to uncover quite a few interesting parts. With these, we believe we'll be able to make something usable soon!

This is a call to any interested engineering types and delvers. We need a bit of help for the final push, to help figure out how to combine the database with the warp band's interface, and to either go through or retrieve more parts. We are also in need of those willing to help gather and compile information about various species of pokémon for the project.

While I'm certainly not the only one working on this, if you are interested, please let me know so that I can direct you to where you need to go. Thank you everyone and have a great new year!


[VOICE | PRIVATE]

[The message is the same, but is sent separately to Lenna and Natalia.]

Hey, when are you available next? I wanted to talk about a few things.


[ACTION]

[To say that she was thoroughly and completely over her head was a bit of an understatement.

Walking around the business district, Lux focused on the more fashionable shops and boutiques. This was more Camille's domain, but the blond mentioned wanting to take care of things by herself; it was probably a bit mistake. She didn't know the first thing about being fashionable, outside of a few very basic rules that her Dragonite taught her. Even then, those were very skewed, and more often than not Camille had a taste for the dramatic.

Sure, every girl envisioned what her dream wedding might look like, and Lux was no different--even with her previous circumstances. But the individual pieces were never solid in her mind, and sending her out to find what she wanted was overwhelming to say the least. She could see a small benefit in letting her family plan the whole thing.

Staring through the shop window at some extravagant dress that likely weighed more than she did, she let out a long sigh. This was harder than she thought.]


I think I need a break...

[Someone's dressed in a cute sweater, hat and general winter gear!

It's not actually Lux, it's Camille, who looks sullen about the whole thing. Cute clothes do not make cold weather better.

Lux, however, is still in what look to be Seeker work robes.]


It's snowing outside! I'm actually pretty excited about it, even if I can't get out of work right now to look at it, because that means the salvation holiday is coming up, and the end of the year! And I really like snow, but that's beside the point.

My family is having their annual salvation and new year party at the end of the year--and, well, my birthday I guess--

[She can't really avoid it, although she does smile and chuckle a little shyly.]

But anyway, for the first time, we've managed to maneuver it to be relatively open to the public! You just need an invitation from myself or from Ezreal. Don't ask about that, it's really complicated. But anyway, if you want to come, let me know and I'll be sure to take care of it.

[Pause.]

Oh, right! There's something else exciting going on, but I can't really talk about it yet. That's why I've been so busy lately, so I'm sorry that I've been a little hard to get a hold of.

[Another pause.]

Although I probably shouldn't have said that, because now everyone's going to be curious. Whoops.

[GJ Lux, Camille gives her a deadpan look before the feed ends.]


[VOICE; private to Jayce]

Hello, Jayce? I need a favor from you, are you busy? I can pay you.

[It's been a while since this particular face has appeared on the Warp Band feed. Those that know him might notice that he appears to be freshly showered, and he's holding a cup of coffee in his hands.]

Hello, everyone! Long time, no see. Though I'm afraid that's my fault -- you see, the council entrusted me with a few...projects, shall we say? Anyway, these projects pretty much sapped my time entirely, so I ultimately fell off the radar.

But those are done now, so I have some time to spare once again! For those who didn't meet me the first time around, the name's Jayce, and my discipline is science. I've already invented and patented quite a few things that have begun to see use around Union, and I'm ready and willing to take on personal projects! Just let me know what you'd like done, and we can, ah...hammer out the details.

[Hiroshi seems to have gained quite a bit of confidence over the past few months. Admittedly, it's hard to tell with the famously reserved young man, but he seems to be less uneasy around his own Pokemon of late.]

Excuse me. I hate to be a bother, but I was wondering if anybody was interested in going to the Magnet Cave with me? I have heard rumors that certain Pokemon evolve with exposure to magnetic forces, and I believe Maxwell may have that capability. I am certain others in town would be interested in observing this phenomenon as well, assuming it is true.

Thank you for your time.

[action | verdant forest | between early morning to the afternoon]

[ Besides doing keeping in touch with Rangers for work, Quinn has been fairly focused and quiet lately, as she finally took up some serious training sessions weeks ago. Exercises, running all over the forest, climbing trees and jumping from one to another, friendly sparring with her Pokémon, just anything to make her stronger. Fellow Rangers, Trainers, or even Pokémon can find her in various spots of the forest.

Or even in certain spots where she's wrestling a Malamar (with consent, mind you) as part of friendly sparring with her Rufflet and Raichu, who is also on Warp Band watching duty, watching from the sidelines. Yeah...

[several hours later after that accidental video, an exhausted voice speaks. Someone that hasn't spoke on the network in a while.]

I'm not so sure what anyone saw of... that. But, rest assure that I am fine. Just still a little tired.

I want to ask fellow Flying type Enlightened on how they deal with their wings, if they have any, and their clothing. Or dealing with wings in general. Better start asking before I wreck my wardrobe.

Well, hello, Union! It's nice to finally be able to talk to people over a Warp Band. My name's Jayce, one of the many engineers this city has employed to lead it down the path to a brighter future.

I do wish the timing had been better, though. These plants everywhere are giving me, and I imagine many of you, some problems. But I'd like to help, if I may! I may not be the most adept gardener you can find, but I do know how to use a pair of shears. Plus my pal Joule here is willing to help.

[The camera rotates to the left to show a Klink floating nearby. To show what it can do, it uses Vice Grip for the camera.]

So feel free to give me a shout, because I'm here to help!
