"Umm alright than, You seem to know what you're doing" Prof. Seedling said smiling a bit as he collected up his case "Look out for her alright Mudkip" he said looking at the small marshdweller, than made his way into one of the other rooms.
Mudkip nodded "Mud-kip kip" it said before looking up at Sarah wondering if it could help, in whatever it was she was doing.
Tamira just watched Sarah do whatever she was doing, as she thought that she had a well thought out plan. She was wrong. Whatever Sarah thought she was going to accomplish by putting a piece of cardboard down with insults to the Team Anarchy members, she was probably wrong in the assumptions. "Um Sarah, what the fuck are you doing? Do you really think that these guys are stupid enough to fall for this trap? Cause I don't. I don't think a ten year old would fall for this," she said, pointing to the piece of cardboard on the ground.
Charlie looks conflicted as he watches all this taking place. "She sorta has a point there? Maybe we can ambush them while they're trying to figure things out if they don't go for the sign immediately?" he offers tentatively. "Oh, Professor, is there anything special about this Slowpoke?"
"She does and doesn't have a point. They left the intercom on by accident, not knowing how to shut it off. Yes, they should have been more careful, but that only proves they are unprofessional. It doesn't prove that they are cartoonishly stupid." Tamira pauses for a second, sighing. "Look, I don't think your whole plan is stupid. Luring them in was going to be my idea too. Just, maybe we do a different method. Like maybe one of us tells the people we found him, and lead him to the room?"
Prof.Seedling stuck his head out the door. "Slowpoke is a Wetlands pokemon as well, However unlike Mudkip it doesn't have any gills. It is able to produce water in a similiar way though"
"It's standard moves are Curse, Tackle, Yawn, Growl, and Water Gun. However special to this Slowpoke is the move Snore it gained from it's heritage" he said smiling
"Some researchers are a bit mean and call Slowpoke Dopey, however it's actually quite intuitive. It uses it's tail to go fishing. However this can sometimes lead to a Shellder clamping on for a sudden evolution" he said chuckling
Sarah considered the point, "and what if they're armed? What if they take you hostage to make sure they get him to follow you? There's three of them, and if we go meet them as a group it might end up worse injuring one of us to make sure the other two fall in line with listing to them. If we have our pokemon out they'll consider us to be a threat. This keeps us out of their reach."
"If you'd like to put a different message on the piece of cardboard go ahead." she said, offering a pen to Tamira, as she held it out, she heard the sounds of the footsteps coming "but if you do do it fast. They're almost here."
"Well at this point I don't really have a choice do I? Fine, we do it your way, but when if it backfires, you will not hear the end of it from me," Tamira said, rushing to her room and releasing her Pokemon inside the room.
Charlie backs into the room with the Professor, Pesterball in one hand, pokeball in the other and ready to fight, the rocking of the ship momentarily forgotten. Closing the door to just a crack, he's ready to burst in and help if things go poorly.
Outside the sounds of foots got a bit clearer as they approached the door to their cabin "What's this say?" the boisterous ones voice said "Dear Team Anarachy...IDIOTS! He's calling us Idiots! Well whose the dumb one now smarty pants? We know you're in there!" he yelled as the meek ones voice could be hear "Ummm...maybe we should go tell the boss, this seems a bit weird and I don't think..." "We don't need the boss! This 'Professor'..." he said with the sound of a sneer in his voice "Just gave us his location, now let's get in there" he yelled the meek one going quiet as the sound of the door being kicked open was heard.
"Where are you professor!" the boisterous one yelled
"Umm we're not going to hurt you we just want the pokedexes and starters" the meek one said
"Like hell we aint hurting him, he called me an idiot. He's at least getting a knock on the noggin, 'sides if we bring the Pokedexes and the Professor in, we'll probably get like double the reward!" he said the meek one going quiet.
"What the heck?" the loud ones voice said as the meek one spoke up again "See...this is weird why is the cardboard moving. It's got to be a trick" he said
"No...Don't you get it, that's what he wants us to think. He wants us to run and get the boss and while we're gone he'll run off again. Well I'm not going to fall for it. If it's being pulled somewhere he must be on the other end of the line. Let's go" he said the sound of him grabbing fabric followed as the steps now seemed to follow the cardboard.
Charlie waits, goggle-eyed at the depths this guy's IQ is operating at. He wonders silently if it's possible for someone to have a negative IQ score. Then he hears them opening the bathroom door in the room. "Sarah, NOW!" he yells.

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...

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.
