So I was thinking, since Winter is finally ending a lot of good fruits and vegetables are in season. With all of the new regions we've explored, I'll bet there's all kinds of interesting food from other regions, I know Citadel has a lot of meat and I've been hearing the Refuge hops and mushrooms are really something else. Why don't we have a cook-off? It'd be a good chance to share cuisine from all over and get some ideas for new recipes.

[Clearly there are no ulterior motives here as to why a cook-off would be warranted. Nope. None at all.]

With the revelation of the presence of the Enhanced, Union was able to quickly mobilize. As the strange conditions continued to worsen, the Trainers of Union once again set out to bring order to the chaos.

This time however, they do not walk entirely alone. A small, dedicated team remains behind in Union, sorting through the dossiers and information that Crystal and Rory have collected. Connected to those in the field via Warp Band network, hopefully they can identify the Enhanced and find a way to calm them before a tragedy occurs.

[OOC: There will be a thread for each active team based on the sign-ups. Any areas that did not have any sign-ups will not be present and will be addressed later. As per our usual standards, moderators and NPC helpers will progress the log at least once every 24 hours. The Union log will work somewhat differently from the battle logs in that the participants will be collecting information concerning the Enhanced; when enough information has been accumulated, they will be asked to tag into the battle threads to provide guidance and support to those out in the field.

Characters participating in the Union log will function as support staff for this event. They will have their own log interacting with Rory and Crystal and as characters in other logs encounter the Enhanced, they can use the observations made to try to find out more about the Enhanced in the field and help the people in the field determine an appropriate situation. Because of this, players in the Union thread may threadjack any ongoing log to relay information as needed.

The outcome of this event will depend very much on player decisions and the ability of the characters to respond to the threats at hand, so we would highly encourage you all to tag as regularly as possible. Thanks!]

[ It was the middle of the night when she took the band, her party well on their way toward the forest shrine. But as soon as she saw the announcement, she knew this couldn't wait. She was trembling--both angry and afraid of what was happening, and what could very well happen to her by saying this. But it didn't matter at this point.

Team Evolution messed up, and Rory was probably still playing coy. Someone needed to call them on their bullshit.

Elly takes a breath before speaking. Even with the light of the campfire, she looks a bit pale. ]


I'm doing this beyond my better judgment. I shouldn't be saying the things I'm about to say. So let me begin by apologizing. To my friends, my co-workers, to anyone who I've had the opportunity to meet in both Union and Caldera; I've been deceiving you. I'll get to that eventually, but that's not why I'm here on the Band.

I'm here to warn you.

Regarding the Enhanced. I know very little about them myself. They're somewhat common knowledge to citizens of Gigas-- [ A pause. ] Like myself. Rory is right, something about Gigas prevents us from having any answer to Enlightened, unless they come from other places, like Caldera. I don't know when the project started. What I do know is from my training, and even that is severely limited. They're... savage on the battlefield. There were even drugs that were manufactured in the Gigan military to try to replicate some of the combat prowess of the Enhanced. They work, but...

[ There is a lot of hesitance there, and Elly looks away from the camera, trailing off. It takes her a moment to be able to continue again. ]

These people should be approached with extreme caution, if you do find them. As was pointed out, one of the side-effects to the experimentation that made them Enhanced is instability. I'm not sure what causes it, but most of the Enhanced I served alongside were already a bit... skewed. Certain things made it worse, but it varied depending on the person.

I've never heard of an instance where Enhanced have caused disturbances like this, so I have no idea what is going on. Rory and Dr. Verdine--I'm kicking myself for not figuring this out before, since that woman is involved--might not even know themselves. Or they might be hiding something. I can't say. I can make assumptions, but I can't say for sure.

Team Evolution itself doesn't function the same way that the greater populous of Gigas do. To be sure, there are agents in Team Evolution that are from Gigas, but as far as I know they are not directly allied. To that, it's possible that they do want the best for these Enhanced. If it was Gigas, I can't say they would make the same concessions.

How do I know this? Well... As said, I served alongside them. Until a few months ago, I was a member of the Gigan military. I was recruited at a young age, and until about a year ago, didn't know any better that my actions would have such a lasting, horrible effect. I know that is no excuse.

I am no longer aligned with them, before anyone asks. If anyone is even listening to me anymore--I understand if you aren't. As far as my commanding officers are concerned, Elhaym Van Houten died on the battlefield. And as far as I'm concerned, she did as well.

I don't expect any of you to trust me, but I'm sick of lying, and I want to help. All I can do is tell you what I know, even if it might put me in a bad place doing so. I don't care anymore. Union has been more than welcoming to someone like me, and, after living here and meeting all of the people, I know where my loyalties lie.

[ It's been a long day for Bart. He's finally managed to get to Union City! He had seen the Pokemon Habitat, and procured a Warp Band (though he didn't stick around long enough for an explanation of what is does). All he wants to do now is get home and rest. The only problem with that is... Where exactly is home? He knows Fei came to the city, and that he's TOTALLY going to let Bart stay with him. But, beyond that, he has no real facts.

So, rather than using his Warp Band, he is wandering the residential area, harassing everyone he meets. If you're out and about, you're getting stopped by this hurried young man and the seemingly hyperactive Zigzagoon that's darting around his feet. You'll also get this wonderfully helpful description of the man he's looking for.
]

Hey've you seen a guy with a long ponytail, and this kind of face? [ It's really hard to discern what he's going for here. It looks like an expression that's somehow sullen, angry, and nauseated. That's his impression of Fei's "concentrating" face. ] His name's Fei. He's a pretty strong guy. I know he's here somewhere!

So I've seen a few dojos around but not a lot designed around really skilled personal trainers. I've been looking at an open space on a ground level tower that just opened up, it's a bit pricey but if I can manage it I'd like to turn it into an open training dojo. I can teach Pokemon to use attacks they might otherwise not be able to learn, and I know I'm not the only one with that ability.

Also, my Snorlax wants to teach a Zumba class, which is why I need a ground floor facility.

I need a bit more money to get the space though, is anyone interested in partnering? We can share the profits of course, I'm not as interested in that.

Dream 1

[The air is a bit nostalgic but the entire room is black. Fei is sitting in a chair, leaning back as if reflecting on something. A sweet melody is playing faintly, although the source of the music is not to be found. It's a quiet place, reflective, but it feels like there's a lot missing, memories that will not return.]

Dream 2

BMG: Knight of Fire

[The scene here is a town burning, with soldiers marching in. The air is thick with gunpowder and the sound of shelling and mortar can be heard. Fei is in the center, fighting waves upon waves of soldiers. A voice in the distance is screaming at him to stop, yelling that he must not fight here but he keeps going anyway.]

Dream 3, locked to Elly

[Fei is sitting on a chair behind an easel, painting a portrait. The subject of his painting, Elly, is sitting in a chair posing.]

Don't move so much, it's hard to get it right.

[His tone is one of gentle chiding]

[With the coming of Autumn, it's been cooling down a bit and Fei knows that pretty it'll be a bit cold and that will make outdoor training difficult. Thus, he can be found with his Blaziken jogging through the city or occasionally sparring. If anybody else is out and about, he'll happily engage them and even join their regimens, if they feel so inclined.]

[ACTION]

[Something about swapping bodies really motivated Elly in strange ways. Union was weird to be sure, but being able to actually hold a conversation with the Pokemon around the city as well as her own was nice. So nice that she decided that maybe she would help volunteer around the Breeding Center.

Elly can be found in the middle of a bunch of baby Pokemon, acting as a human jungle gym; some of the very little ones are even convinced that the redhead is their mother. It's hard to tell whether or not Elly is having fun or is extremely overwhelmed, but she's laughing at least, so there is that.

When not at the Breeding Center, she has taken to doing odd jobs for the Medical Center. Versed in a bit of medicine, she acts mostly as a runner, but always seems to linger a little too long with the patients. It seems that might be where she wants to be.]




[VIDEO]

[Later in the evening, the feed turns on. There is a strange sound behind her... is that dripping? Is that dripping and mumbling? Was that a leaky faucet? And was that a Zubat hovering by her head?]

Beaumont, could you just--

[Beaumont? Didn't you say Chu-Chu? A giant fluff-ball rolls in, hopping up on Elly's shoulders and staring down at the feed. Hello world, it's Chu-Chu! Chu didn't know it yet, but Chu really wanted to see her, right?]

Ack! Hey, don't do that! I'm trying to--

[Dear God, what was the high pitched squeal just now? A brown streak runs by, striped tail bristled as it gets chased by a cute pink streak. A very put-upon Flaaffy follows after, trying to tell them to stop; the two don't listen.]

Teddy, Gil, cut it ou--

[She stops as she hears water running from the other room. Chu-Chu jumps off her shoulders and rolls away as the woman looks behind her.]

Skyler, no! The bathtub is not for swimming! Beaumont, stop crying about the meaning of life, you're going to ruin the carpet! Teddy, Gil, stop chasing each other! Bertie, could you stop flying around my head, I can't think!

[She pauses, rubbing her forehead.]

I'm sorry, there was a point to this, but then I forgot it--

[CRASH.]

YOU ARE IN SO--

[End transmission.]

[Saturday, mid-morning. Hello world, it's a Gabite! Or, rather, a Gabite stomach; it isn't until it bends down in an attempt to pick up the warp band that anyone can see its face. Extremely upset, it stares intently at the feed which shakes back and forth. As it turns out, trying to pick up and hold anything when all you have is little nubby claws is a bit difficult. Oh thumbs, how she missed you.]

Someone help! I--waaah!

[That sounds like Shyvana.

And the warp band slips from her claws and falls to the ground. Noooo, it took her so long to even get it turned on. Laying on its side, it unfocuses and focuses on the Pokemon's feet. How is she going to even...

Okay, bending down now, the Gabite attempts to pick up the camera again, this time juggling it in its wings(?) and hoping that that will be a bit more secure.]


I woke up like this! ...Not like this, but in a different body. And then it did this! I can't figure out how to make it turn back, let alone why it changed in the first place. [She readjusts the camera a bit.] I tried pinching myself a few times, but I'm not dreaming. What's going on?!


[ACTION]

[Wandering around Union is a Gabite, followed by a Mareep, who is trying to be as supportive as possible. It looks like she's trying to make the most out of the situation, and has large grocery bags draped over her wing-like arms. And a few on her Dorsal fin. She looks rather proud of herself. After all, when life gives you lemons, then it's time to make a lot of lemonade.]

These Warp Bands are amazing! I should see if the Doc'll come down and visit, he'd love these.

Er, anyway. I'm Fei, a painter from Caldera. I got in not too long ago and have been exploring and getting set up. I like it here, it's pretty peaceful, and it's been suggested it might be good for a more permanent move.

Let's see, I'm also a big fan of Earthkin Clash out in Caldera, is there anything like that here? What do you guys like to do for fun around here?

[VIDEO]

[There are a few false starts, the video coming on for a second or two, focusing on a face, before going off again. After the third or fourth time that this happens, the camera pulls away, a young woman staring at the world with a bit of a perplexed look.]

Is this on? How can you tell? Is there a light or--

Oh!

[It looks like she's found it.]

There we go. My name is Elhaym, Elly for short. This is what people in Union use to communicate, right? It seems pretty convenient. What else is it used for? Does everyone in Union have one, or just the Enlightened? Are Enlightened really that common here?

[That's a lot of questions, Elly. She smiles a little at the camera.]

Sorry, I just got here a few days ago, and I have a lot of questions. I heard that people in Union "bond" with their Pokemon? How does that work? Oh, and speaking of work, how does one find work here?


[ACTION]

[Midday, one of the parks in Union. A redhead walks briskly like a woman on a mission, avoiding looking behind her as much as possible. Occasionally she'll glance back, make a bit of a face, and then continue to walk with her head down a bit. She looks like she is trying to get away from something, but what could it be?]

Reee?

[It's a Mareep, tailing her, doing the best that it can with its stubbly little legs to keep up with the woman. Hey, where are you going? Excuse me? Miss? Excuse me? You're going to get yourself lost! Excuuuuuuse me!

Stopping, the woman sighs hard, bending down as she puts a hand out, stopping the electric sheep in its tracks.]


Why are you following me? I don't know what you want, I can't understand a word you're saying?

Maree?

[The Mareep tilts its head to the side and Elly deflates a little. You're really cute, but what does she even do? A little help?]
