It's nice to know that, even in time of duress, we are able to come to peaceful conclusions.

If anyone is in need of medical attention, though, the center is able to tend to you.

I was actually wondering, if there are any who come from Gigas, if I may speak with you?

[Video, last night. The view is shaky, but clearly of Morgiana. There are lots of people laughing and cheering.]

I met a Fanalis and she knows everything. Everything.

[She switches a view to a short girl with horns who was laughing and cheering the loudest of them all.]


Well maybe not everything but she's going to tell me things. Like, big things. But first I hafta climb this *unintelligable mumbling*

Okay wish me luck!

[Video, that morning. Morgiana looks somewhat worse for wear. Careful observation of the background might reveal that she is on the roof of Union's biggest theater. You know the one.]


I'm...terribly sorry, but I'm not quite sure where I am, and I feel quite ill.

Last night is all a blur. I didn't do anything weird, did I?

[Please indicate which entry you're tagging. Feel free to make up weird things she might have done last night. Only guidelines: She would not have seriously hurt anyone. She would not have done anything overtly sexual. She PROBABLY wouldn't have broken anything super important.]

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.]

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!

An unsettling calm hung over the streets of Union, a chilly, early morning fog settling in. The words of their newest visitors were unwelcome, and when word spread that the two would be leaving at sunrise, the people were grateful, if not a bit apprehensive. The Elite Four, their Champion, and the whole of Ever Grande—their radical ideologies were not only off-putting, but their methodology was more than a bit off-putting. They would need to be watched, closely.

In the early hours of the morning, warp bands around Union buzzed with life, a gentle light spilling from the devices. “Hello again, friends.”

It was her.

Her voice rang clear, and while her face wasn’t present, one could hear the smile in her voice. “I hope I didn’t wake any of you up. I wanted to thank you all for being so hospitable to Alina and myself, at least initially. But talk about the Union chill. Normally I like a little cold, but this is a bit much.

“When we first heard about Union, we were excited. Finally, we had found a worthy ally for our cause. So you can imagine our... disappointment, when we saw your true colors. You’re nothing but cowards! And here I thought, a city championing for peace, who were blessed by the Gods themselves, willing to live alongside pokémon without subjugating them to your will, would be able to understand the world that we wish to create. Instead, you hide behind your wall, hide behind others, and assume that by ‘defending yourself’ or those you deem unable or unfit to fight that you’ve somehow absolved yourself from guilt.”

Her voice grew cold, turning deep; “People like that make me sick.”

“Divinity is wasted on you, to be quite honest.” Her voice bounced again, chipper and clear. “If you can’t walk alongside us, then you’ll only serve as stepping stones toward a peaceful tomorrow. Union, like Glacier and so many other settlements before it, will serve as an example to those who wish to defy the will of the Gods. The pit of humanity needs to learn its place, crawling on its belly in fear from the true inheritors of the earth. We lay ourselves prostrate to their glory!

“Union believes that they’re able to decide what is right and what is just, but I disagree. I bring to you, the divine word of the Gods themselves! Listen well, people of Union, and all others! This is the world we seek to create, our perfect vision of peace! Hear me, O Great One, and come to my aid. Strike down these heretics where they stand!”

BMG: Gates to Infinity: Clash with Kyurem!

Answering Sveta’s call, a great dragon bearing the frost of the deepest winter appeared in the center of the city. With a roar of power, it’s unearthly presence sent waves of fear in the souls of even the bravest citizens of Union. Opening it’s vicious maw, it unleashed an enormous roar, a battle cry of deafening proportions, a Hyper Voice attack! While the sound was ear splitting to all who dwelt within Union, its power was focused. The great Signal Tower, a beacon of Union technology and innovation, began to crack heavily. Jagged scars appeared as chunks of stone fell unbidden from the tower. It still stood—but against such an assault, not for much longer. The force of the blast sent cracks sprawling through nearby towers as panicked shrieks began to echo throughout the city, a chorus of terror at the power of the god before them.

But in that moment, the humans were not alone. Two high-pitched cries met the titanic roar as twin dragons flew to Union’s aid, spiraling around the mighty ice dragon and attacking with twin Dragon Breath attacks. Once again, the great hounds and birds, as well as the Lady of the Moon and the Lord of Nightmares, Articuno, Zapdos, Moltres, Entei, Raikou, Suicune, Cresselia and Darkrai stood at Union’s side, unleashing their own attacks. The people of Union felt the blessings of the gods with them. Here they would have to stand and fight—drive back the invaders and save their fair city!

[OOC: With the damage to the signal tower, Warp Band communication is offline and Pokemon cannot be summoned - thankfully the habitat is close and your Pokemon allies will come to your aid as the logs begin]

[A few days ago, Morgiana had gone on a trip to the South. Today, she came back with a new friend.

Rather than arriving at the docks by steamship, Morgiana landed there on the back of a Tropius. Said Tropius is standing behind her, though looming might be a better word. It stares into the camera over her shoulder with an inscrutable look on its face and (possibly) just the hint of a knowing smile. This is a Tropius that knows things.

Or at least it believes it does.]

I have now officially joined the rangers. Union has made itself my home and asked for little in return, but I feel like I have to give back even so.

I suppose this means I will be in town a little less often, but that is unavoidable. To be honest, I have been feeling a bit too settled lately. Regular exploring will do me good.

[The Tropius nudges her, causing her to stumble a step. It was a big one, and Morgiana is small.]

Oh yes, also I have a new...I suppose she would be a co-worker.

Action, around Union

[Kyosuke has been wandering Union with a book in hand, one he received during the recent gifting. He, for the record, did not witness the young woman who was delivering them out. In the other hand, he has an almost comically large drumstick, which he is munching on idly as he reviews it]

Hmmm... that doesn't sound safe, strictly speaking. I don't think human limbs are intended to bend into such a position.


I have a question for natives. Is all Salvation food so... unhealthy? It's very good but it doesn't seem like the best idea if you're trying to stay in shape.
bravenewmods: (Default)
[personal profile] bravenewmods
All across Union, its citizens prepared to ring in the Salvation holiday with cheer. Dedicated to their beloved Savior, many of the houses were decorated with garlands, ornaments and other fineries in preparation for this truly special holiday, and while it had been uncharacteristically cold the last few days, not a single flake of snow had fallen. Children eager to start the festivities the following day did their best to stay up in the hopes of possibly catching a glimpse of one of the Delibirds they saw the previous night. However, try as they might, the late night would get the better of them, and soon the city was asleep, nestled warm in their beds, dreaming of parties and presents, candies and cakes.

As they slept, the first snow began to fall, snowflakes silently dancing through the night sky, dusting rooftops and covering sidewalks in pearly white. It would seem that a Salvation miracle was at work in Union that night. The streets were empty, save for a young woman and Pokémon, scarcely visible even in the lamplights. Her steps made no sound, even in the accumulating snow, and she left no footprints, the strange Pokémon by her side taking the time to peer into every window.

Should anyone wake during this peaceful snowfall, they might find the young woman and her companion in their room, transparent as a fog, a placid smile on her face. She did not speak, but simply smiled warmly, almost maternally, before disappearing from view.

When dawn finally broke, the people of Union would find a simple gift within their home, rested alongside a familiar note. The snow from last night coated buildings, streets, and sidewalks, blanketing the city in white and shimmering in the gentle, early morning light.

((OoC: This is a Salvation Mingle Log for all characters. There are decorations and the like in various squares for celebration around Union, so feel free to tag around!))

[Action - Around Town - October 30th & 31st]

[In the several days leading up to the end of the month, Chie can be seen in the business district of Union shopping for food.  She's buying a relatively large amount of meat, but also more common staples such as milk and bread.  And just for good measure and as a bit of personal comfort, she also stocks up on some chocolate and candy.]

[Video - October 31st]

[As the feed clicks on, Chie's face is barely illuminated, and it seems as though she's in a cramped place.  She's also badly trying to conceal a worried expression.]

So, I'm kindaaaaa... not gonna be around for a few days.

[She pauses, eyes casting about left and right.]

...A week.  I'll be gone for a week.

[A small nod.]

I'll be fine.  I, uh... I think.  I hope.

[Taking a deep breath, she reaches toward the Warp Band.]

Don't look for me.

[Action - At Home - During Soulfasting]

[Anyone who's known Chie for any length of time probably knows exactly what that awkward Warp Band transmission from before was about: she's terrified of Ghost Pokemon, and they're always out in force during Soulfasting.  So she's availing herself of a time honored Satonaka tradition of locking herself in her bedroom, huddling under the blanket, and hoping nothing phases through the wall to play harmless but deeply terrifying tricks on her.  She trusts Morgiana not to let anything scary inside, and Chie herself will likely let close friends in with a minimum of prodding, but otherwise she's gone full hermit mode for the week unless something very important pulls her away.]

[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.



[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 battle was over and the god Reshiram defeated, driven away by the aid of Union and its allies. The city was safe, by and large, and as the news spread throughout the peoples of the tundra, they began streaming back into the settlement in droves. Dirty, ash-coated faces were filled with relief and gratitude when they saw that it wasn't just a rumor and that their home had indeed been spared. Not everyone was so lucky, but they'd weathered worse, of course. The people of Glacier endured, as they would always endure, and they were also a people that repaid their debts. And they most certainly all agreed that they owed their rescuers a debt.

So, as night fell after the battle, a great celebration was prepared in the center of Glacier. A wide square was cleared away in a matter of hours, and the people gathered what they could in a show of thanks. Tables of food, bonfires towering into the night sky to keep out the autumn chill, and throngs of cheering wellwishers lined the area. Warriors of glacier, men carrying swords and women all bearing axes offered enthusiastic handshakes and claps on the back. Music of all kinds was played, though tribal tunes full of horn and percussion, chanting and yodeling, and even some brass groups dominated the soundscape.

A platform for various elders was set up, and they offered speeches, of course...but those were somehow dwarfed by the presence of the divine beings that were waiting silently for the proceedings to end. Some of the gods that had come to the aid of the war parties had apparently decided to stay, though their reasons were as mysterious as they themselves. The humans would have their time, and the Servants would mingle freely throughout the evening.

Food, of course, is set out in piles. Meat, fish, arctic berries, and various pastries and the like line table after table. A smorgasbord of Glacier specialties, each with a new and unique flavor all their own, and some (such as the stew) possessing a smell that only a native could probably endure. Akutaq in particular seems to stand out among the worst offenders, but the Glacier natives seem rather fond of it, and offer it to their rescuers with great gusto.

And the rewards do not stop at simple meals. either. As the speeches begin to wind down, a woman some might find familiar walks up onto the stage carrying a singularly massive trunk and dropping it down onto the wood with a heavy thud.]

Southerners! You have done a great deed this day! We, the people of Glacier, would like to thank you and honor your sacrifice! Few would do as you have done, coming to the aide of strangers against the might of that dragon...and you have accomplished something we did not think possible. To that end, we would like to present you with the first of many gifts, a token of our gratitude and a promise that should you need it, we will come to your defense in a time of need!

[And then with a sharp kick, she cracks open the trunk and reveals a veritable treasure trove of three different stones to be distributed by her subordinates.]

Rest well, and enjoy the festivities! You are welcome here, for as long as you like! Eat, drink, and be merry within our halls!

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.


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.))

Who: Chie and Morgiana
What: A quiet night in
When: September 19th
Where: Chie and Morgiana's apartment

[It's been a good few months since Chie and Morgiana moved in together, and while they've been getting along really well, they actually haven't been on too many dates together.  Plenty of sparring matches, walks through the city, and meals at favorite restaurants, but none of it ever really felt like a date so much as hanging out together.  And while Chie definitely appreciates the casual nature of their relationship as compared to the relative pressure of her last one, she wants to do something special for Morgiana to show her how much she cares.  So tonight, the two of them are cooking a meal together.  Chie would have done it herself, but by this point even she is aware of just how big a disaster she is in the kitchen.  After a bit of discussion, the two decided they'd try it together - Morgiana can stop Chie from putting anything crazy in the dish, and Chie can handle the actual cookware so nothing ends up broken.  That's the name of the game tonight as these two extremely amateur cooks attempt the harrowing task that is... beef and veggie stew.]

[Action the first]

Shortly before the liberation of Sanctuary, Morgiana had agreed to take lessons in actual fighting techniques at the dojo Yuuna went to. Though various things had kept her from being able to devote a huge amount of time to it, she had not given up and had picked up a small amount of skill. Enough that the three of them (Yuuna, Morgiana, and Master Yashio himself) had decided that combined with her skills as a God of War, she would make a fine opponent for the dojo Master in an exhibition match! There hadn't been very many students about lately anyways, so it would probably do them some good.

And so, one windy September day, Morgiana and Yashio (who happened to be a Mienshao shifter.) stood on a cleared out space in the street outside the dojo. Above the door, behind them, was a sign declaring that the school was now accepting new students. They bowed to each other, then began.

Morgiana was fast, as always, and hit like a speeding bus. But somehow, despite her acrobatic leaps and dashes, she never was quite able to land a blow. The old man, without any apparent sense of urgency, effortlessly deflected and redirected Morgiana's attacks, casually flipped her through the air to land flat on her back, and generally just kicked her ass without trying. They would do a round, then stop for a few minutes to answer questions and catch their breath, then do another. Morgiana had an impressive amount of stamina, and Yashio just wasn't using a lot of energy, so there was no reason not to go on most of the day.

[Action the second]

Hanging along the sides of the crowd, a towering figure vaguely sulked. His partner was busy right now, which once he would have used to his advantage to get into all kinds of trouble. Gultas, the shiny pangoro, had once upon a time been tiny and adorable. Girls had let him get away with lots of things because he looked like a little teddy bear. Now, he was a towering seven feet tall, and found that people tended to find him intimidating more than cute.

He reached over to a box next to him, pulled out an apple, and bit it in half as he watched Morgiana fight.

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.
