Robin nods, speaking quickly even as she thinks. "Not a bad idea, though if they're fighting this hard, gotta be something that started it, so we better be careful not to mess with anything that'd get their attention." She shakes her head, thinking about what she'd just said. "Don't s'pose there was any clue what the fight's about, huh? Well, hope there's a way around them at least."
"This looks territorial to me. Judging by how ill-fitting their armor is, they may be close to evolving. These are two powerful beasts and are trying to exert their influence on this section of the mountain with only each other in their way." She looks back at the melee and resounding blows, admiring their strength.
"Quite a beautiful spectacle, really." She turns back to her companions.
"We should definitely go around, though. Interrupting them now would be... Foolish." She says emphatically.
"Yes, go around, as far as we can. Got it!" Benji says, hugging Yash more, before tucking him deep in his hoodie. "No noises now, Yash, please. We need to get around quietly, ok"?
Sighing deeply, Benji removes his shoes, allowing his toes to get adjusted to the dirt before turning to the others. "Ok, let's do this. Everyone ready?" he says, smiling towards the others giving a thumbs up with one hand and his shoes on the other.
As soon as the group finishes preparations, Benji follows the expert, waiting for Jean-Marie to take the lead once again.
She looks around at her friends, sizing up their ability to avoid detection. If she makes an evaluation, it isn't obvious.
"Okay, here is the plan. We are going around the bend to the more stable shoulder below the plateau. That should give us enough distance to avoid being spotted by the Lairon. The loose gravel and incline will make it a little bit unsteady, however. It should not be too difficult but stay behind me so you can mimic my footfalls." She turns to watch the brawl again.
"This should keep us far enough away that they will not notice us, but still maintain a low profile and voice. We are still in eyeshot, after all." She turns back to face her companions again, appearing startlingly sober for the normally cheery girl.
"If they do notice us, get to flat ground and run. We cannot outpace them, but the distance should give us enough of a headstart that they should tire or grow bored before they reach us. Any questions?" She declares, startling herself somewhat. Yveltal, I sound like my mother.
With a look of absolute concentration on his face, Benji follows Jean-Marie's footfalls precisely, trying to keep low and quiet, and also trying to ignore the frightening creatures that might look at them at any minute now. Still, his eyes never leave his guide's steps as the group traverse around the plateau.

With practised, almost casual, ease, Jean-Marie slinks down from the laid out path onto the gravelly slope below, guiding her companions to keep their footing and stay unnoticed. Without issue, she moves past the Lairon, feeling secure that the noise of their battle would mask any small sounds they might make, and that their attention would be too focused on each other for them to spot you. Apart from a close slip up from Robin, who is quickly caught by Benji (who almost seems to move before Robin trips), the three of you make it past the Lairon without issue, returning to the path once you've most past a bend and are out of sight of the metallic behemoths.
The rest of the day passes by without much incidence, and after a couple more hours of travel, the sun starts to set, and Jean-Marie leads you all to a small hollow in the mountains, set up by the Ranger Corp to act as a shelter for travellers.
As soon as the group reaches the hollow, Robin swings off his pack and squats down, pulling out his cooking supplies.
"Right, anyone got any preferences for what we're having..." he trails off for a moment before sighing, "...is a question I really should've asked when we were in town and I was picking up supplies, but there we are. Guess all the shakeups took my mind off it. But, yeah, got a few options, what are we thinking?"
A chirrup from his shoulder makes him roll his eyes as he puts Rowan down, as well as releasing Aubrey. "Well, obviously I've got some spice powder for you, Rowan. And I'll try to get a good selection for you to try from, Aubrey, see what you like, but other than that?"
After the stressful events with the lairon, Benji enjoys the rest of the trip, making small talk with the others, playing with his own pokémon, and just plainly appreciating the views. He takes some time to carve a bit of the most interesting sights on the way, to work on another of his bracelets later, but mostly just gladly moves away from what could have been a problem.
As the group settles for the night, Benji offers to look for wood and make a small fire. It's not much, really, but what else could he do? Going around camp and searching for small branches and dry limber, he also draws small protective sigils around camp, just in case. After he gathers enough, he makes the fire in the center of the camp and starts working on his tent with Maha's help.
"Oh, don't worry about us, Robin," Benji answers, as he deftly prepares his tent with the machop's aid. "Having good food as yours is more than enough for us. Yash and I are used to mostly snacking on fruits and candies when we travel, so any warm meal would be more than welcome. I hope it would be the same for Maha..." he says, eyeing the machop who firmly nods.
Jean-Marie nods in agreement with Benji's comments. "We also have been primarily subsisting on foraged goods for food. I would be happy to find some to help supplement your plan, but do not worry, our palates are quite unrefined." She smiles, cocking her head to the side. All signs of her seriousness before have long since evaporated.
Robin chuckles. "Well, that's good to hear, since I'm thinking that Caviar and Foie Gras Paté with Saffron-stuffed Lobster and Truffle Champagne might be just a little out of our price range."
That said, she gets to work whipping up an omelette for everyone, taking a moment to sniff her various herb bottles to get a good flavour combination in her head before adding it. "Hmm, Sage and Thyme, I think. Maybe some chives to level it out," she mutters to herself as she works.

Hi there! I'm Seya, a 24 y.o. editor in Atlantic Canada. I enjoy writing, reading, webcomics, art, worldbuilding, and video games (I can talk for ages about SotC and Monster Hunter...). Although I'm relatively new to playing Pokémon Tabletop via forum, I've been putting together sites like this for a long time, and I'm really excited to work with you all to create an awesome environment for Pokémon roleplay. While my job here is primarily to keep the site running smoothly, I'm always happy to chat, offer advice, and deal with any problems you run across. Let me know if I can be of any help. Inbox is always open! Cheers! xx :)
Hello! I'm Sly, the East Coast mod representative! I'm a 22 year old tax accountant who is exactly as exciting as that sounds, I'm sure. PTU is my major hobby, I run several games (of which the Geode games are my pet project), and I read a disgusting amount of fanfiction. I've been a member of the community for about a year, consider myself more GM material than player material, and am dedicated to helping make your time here enjoyable! If there's ever anything you need, don't be afraid to send me an owl! (Or a PM, I guess, if that works better for you.)
Hey there! I’m DataNinja, the West Coast representative. I'm the most active Staff member on here, so if you need something, try giving me a poke first, and I'll see if I can help sort out your problem. Always happy to help!
(1 May 2015): "For our first pack, we’re focusing on utility character options. Hopefully, this will give you both interesting insights into our dev process as we make changes over time and another focused avenue to give us feedback on what you’d like to see out of PTU."
People are out there, yes, but if you're looking for a game, sorry to say that things seem to be winding down overall. There's basically been... 3 games in the last 2 years, none of which got off the ground.

Does anyone know where the latest Roll20 JSON Exporter for the Fancy Sheet is?
May 22, 2020 23:59:17 GMT
UwUs into the void...
May 14, 2020 2:56:43 GMT
It's very slow, yes. You'll probably finish working on your game before one pops up here, and if you create a recruitment for it you can expect to be swarmed with applicants.
May 7, 2020 4:47:37 GMT
New games seem to open up slowly here, but if new people are still welcome, I don't mind waiting around (or working on my own). It looks like there's some useful stuff to browse in the meantime.

Anyone else here a Hunter x Hunter fan?

Keep an eye on the recruitment area of this website. They're rare nowadays, but any new games that crop up will show up there. If it's a live game you want though, you're outta luck.
Dec 2, 2019 19:05:30 GMT
but how else do i find games then?
Nov 28, 2019 6:17:00 GMT
Sounds to me like they weren't a group you'd want to be part of anyway.
Nov 27, 2019 22:17:34 GMT
i wanted to join a living server on roll20 to learn the system but they ignored my application for 2 weeks then blocked me

Basically, GMs post recruitments in the appropriate section, and then players apply to the open games. Unfortunately, there has been a rather... small amount of games posted lately, but there's one currently recruiting right now.

How does this site work?

Post on the Game Masters Seeking Players page. There are plenty examples there to go off of.
