What do you notice first while you're out in the Verdant Forest? Is it the roars? The sound of snapping wood? Various small Pokémon fleeing from something? Or are you oblivious to all that and completely unprepared for what happens next?

Because what happens next is a nearby tree exploding into splinters as a Tyrunt is thrown through it, taking out a large chunk of underbrush as it slides to a stop. It quickly hops to its feet and fires off Ancient Power in the direction it came from. The sound of more wood breaking is drowned out by a roar as a Charmeleon leaps through the gap where the tree was and lands in front of the Tyrunt. They're both still for a moment, breathing heavily. From their mutual exhaustion and countless minor wounds, it's likely that they've been at this for a while.

Their momentary break ends and they're at it again, clawing and biting at each other and destroying nearby foliage in the process, until with twin roars and a final charge they slam their foreheads into each other and start glowing. When the light fades, a Tyrantrum and a Charizard are staggering back from the collision. Domri calls out from the sidelines where he's been watching the fight.

"Are you two done now? You both evolved at the same time!"

The two Pokémon sit down heavily and glare at each other, but even with the burst of energy provided by evolution they're both too exhausted to continue right now. Domri looks over at you.

"Did you see that? Wasn't that wrecked!?"

1. The Refuge Camp [Action]
[ Nestled deep in the refuge camp was a travel trunk. Like all travel trunks, it was both well-used and well-traveled. It was also asleep. A cacophony of sawing sounds rumbled through the tent flap, causing a passerby to sharply veer away. Rincewind stepped outside and stretched. He had a long day ahead of him. There were groceries to procure and clothes to reluctantly buy. He needed to get out of the camp and find an actual place to stay. The tent was all fine and dandy, but at the end of the day, it was on the breezy side and didn't offer leg room. He had to duck which meant his hat never stayed on his head when he had to stand. ]

[ No, he had to find a new residence. Somehow. But, food first. Rincewind picked a direction and strode. ]

[ The Luggage woke up. ]

Hey.

[The Warp Band flickers on to display a face that's perhaps slightly more recognizable now.]

Slackers.

It's great that you've found a city filled with magical megalomaniacs - don't worry; this counts as hometown pride - but I think you're all forgetting something equally important and worthy of attention.

[Ceilto spins a whiteboard near him fast enough that it's impossible to make out what's on it until it comes to a stop. ...Facing the wrong way.]

Eh.

[One more spin. ...It's a map. The map of everything known to Union, with Sanctuary far off to the west beyond the borders and several areas marked off in green with a check-mark. A triangle in the Wildwoods has been circled in red.]

Crumbling stone and bits of pottery and such!

[...]

Yeah, we're low on funds again, and we need to find something worthwhile. Seekers, assemble. We're heading out in two days. Everyone else, feel free to speak up and say how much you want to tag along.

...What all did you find in the other ruins, anyway, and how come none of the cash made it back to us?

((Looking for at least two to three people for this! Preferably more, but two-three minimum! Log will be going up tomorrow or the next day.))

Wasn't the Day of Fire awesome!?

[That comes out pretty much the moment that the warp band feed begins. Perhaps Estelle was brought down by what happened... but she doesn't really stay down. The Day of Fire did a lot to help her spirits.]

I'm glad you all came to Caldera to see it! It's basically my favorite festival from back home.

[video - locked to Seekers]

Hey guys! I was thinking and talking to Dad some when I visited home -- okay so more like listening to Dad ramble because he had a bunch of liquor like a bum but anyways -- and an idea came up.

It might be nice if people saw more of what we did. What if we had a Seekers Open House? We could open headquarters up to the public and put a bunch of the artifacts and stuff we found on display.

[A brief pause.]

Maybe drinks and food, too.

[Another pause.]

But not near the priceless artifacts.

[There are serious conversations about serious topics that are happening right now. This is not one of them.

This is a normal Teddiursa and a shiny Teddiursa moonwalking back and forth in the shopping district. They aren't just moonwalking - there's other dancing interspersed in there - but they come back to the moonwalking frequently so it's the part most likely to be seen. There's no musical accompaniment to the dancing, but the two of them are in synch with each other and aren't half bad considering they're bears. Other people apparently approve, since the bowl in front of their performance spot is gradually filling up with coins.

There's also a Totodile present, headbanging, using Dragon Dance, and generally rocking out completely off-rhythm from the bear brothers. It's getting much less attention from passerby than the Teddiursa are, mainly because it's not dancing over as wide of an area as the other two and is thus easier to miss.

Domri himself is watching from the back of his Rhyhorn so he can see over people, shirtless because who cares about Unionite prudishness it's hot out. His mohawk is still multicolored after the Day of Fire because he hasn't bothered to put in the effort to get all the color out.]

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.]

[The boy on the other end of the feed looks cheerful despite the atmosphere of the city, as they prepare for their assault to reclaim Sanctuary. His voice, however, is a little more somber.]

Yo, I'm Yosuke, Yosuke Hanamura. I just got here a few days ago from Citadel, with my dad. I don't know my way around Union very well yet, and I was looking for a place where I could pick up a pair of kunai or something. I lost mine on the trip here, and I need them for helping Sanctuary get rid of those Gigas creeps.

[Which, sadly, he's really not all that great with. But going in with just his fists doesn't sound like a good idea either. As does him going at all.]

I totally owe you guys one if you can help me out. Peace!

Action:

[Have (1) Yosuke Hanamura exploring Union to get a feel for the new town he's going to be living in for a while. A Bidoof trails behind him, looking hungry. It keeps piping up, asking for a snack. Yosuke can't understand it but he does understand that it's asking for food. He turns as he walks, to talk to it-]

Dude, we just ate like twenty minutes ago, how the hell are you still hungry-

[When he stumbles right into a collection of garbage cans and goes face first in one. He seems a little stuck.]

Who: Estelle, Domri, Eiji, Right, Taki
When: Friday the 8th!
Where: Ruins East of the Swamp!
Log Deputy: Void

[Estelle's been into ruins before, but new explorations are something else. The experienced Seeker doesn't quite think of herself that way, but she should get used to it, she realizes. She walks forward a couple steps, then smacks her staff into the ground. Behind her, Dogi the Golurk... well, lurks.]

I think the entrance is ahead.

[That's for the benefit of her companions. She trudges ahead, boots laced up tight, and squints.]

Wonder what we'll find!

[Action 1]

This morning, a mighty warrior approaches Union astride his noble steed, weaponry and a trophy of his previous conquest displayed for all to see- wait no. No that's not it.

Approaching Union this morning is a kid with mohawk, piercings, and tattoos, dressed in the leathers and hides common to the Valkyrie tribes and with a glowing disk hanging from a cord around his neck. He's riding a slightly-smaller-than-normal Rhyhorn, who's also carrying a couple of packs and a bundle of sleeping furs along with a short spear and small shield. A Zigzagoon is running back and forth around them, examining everything it sees. The group comes to a stop outside the gate and looks up at the walls.

"This thing is huge! Not as tall as the Citadel, but it must have taken forever to build it!"

"Looks strong. Hard to break. Want to try."

The boy pats the Rhyhorn's head.

"We'll have lots of time to try. Let's look around first. There has to be tons of wrecked stuff to see here!"

The Zigzagoon runs in a circle in excitement.

"Lots of stuff! Shiny things! Smelly things! Fun things!"

"I bet! Come on!"

[Video]

[Crooked shakeycam video is a go! Have a kid who's very clearly not from Union because who in Union would make themselves look like that? Though that look does seem oddly reminiscent of some of the Valkyries who robbed caravans last year...

He's a bit loud when he speaks, as if he's trying to make himself heard by even the people who are far away. Hey, when you're talking to someone far away you have to raise your voice so they can hear you. It's not like he has any idea how this technology actually works.]


Hey! I'm Domri Rade! [The camera wobbles and points at a Rhyhorn.] And this is Little One [And now to a Zigzagoon.] and Root. [And now back to Domri.] We got here today and just got this "Warp Band" thing. This place seems pretty wrecked. I heard a lot of weird stuff happens around here, anything interesting happening right now? Any good places to check out? I need a place to sell some stuff too, where can I do that?

[Action 2]

And now Domri's riding around Union on his Rhyhorn because otherwise he wouldn't be able to see over people's heads, looking around at all the things he's never seen before. His Zigzagoon is with him too of course, darting between people's legs as it tries to look at everything (and perhaps acquire some new shinies in the process). He can be found pretty much everywhere at some point, frequently because he's lost but he won't admit to that.
