"Alright..." he said sitting down surrendering "...I didn't want to do this anyway. Micheal just showed up with these Sailor Outfits and these Team Anarchy shirts and said we were hijacking a boat...I really thought he was joking" he said as Prof.Seedling peeked out of the room looking around "Is it over?" he asked seeing one of the men down and another surrending "Oh good, looks like I was lucky to find you three" he said smiling looking over at them
"Well here" he said reaching into another pocket laying out some super potions "These should help with any wounds you or your Pokemon may have gotten. Now you three did well but I think it's time to call the proper authorities. Their leader should be staying in the control room to the ship. Hopefully the phones will still be working" he said heading over for the PC
Finishing tieing their hands behind their backs and to the doors she looked around the room for a moment making sure she had everything she needed to done.
She looked over at the professor as he went up to the computer, taking careful watch Sarah pointed out loudly, "Proffessor seedling, the PC there has porygons in it. They probably shut down the phones."
She got up, picked up 2 super potions, and turned to the others, "So then, let's go take down their boss?"
- GM of Dauntless Diamond, The Order of the Youngest Sage, Pokemon Survivor - Thieving girl Tanya Paragon in Blue Dragonite - Gym Enthusiast Sarah Felks in Adventures in Guildare
"Thank you for the potions. Those will be useful in for trainer battles. But since we are not currently engaged in mortal combat, we can use these instead," she said, pulling some enriched water out of her bag. "Here, take some if you need it. And Treecko, good job out there today." She then went and began to help Sarah with using the blankets to tie up the Team Anarchy members.
Prof. Seedling stopped dead in his tracks "Oh my...hmm" he said pausing observing the PC. Not much changing after Sarah's declaration. "Looks like it can't hear us as long as the phone is on the reciever. Thank you for warning me Sarah" he siad smiling looking over at the girl but got a worried look "Though this does permit another worry. If he has Porygon in the ships systems. He could cause some major damage." he said looking like he was pondering.
"I have an idea...but we'll need to deal with this Porygon first. If it pops out while we're gone it could free these two" he siad looking up the two tied up men.
Charlie strokes his chin for a moment. "What if we put the phone on hold? It'd basically be trapped in there wouldn't it? Or... hmm, maybe I could short out the system from here, at least temporarily, and force it out?"
Edu Tech: 16 to consider possibilities.
After a moment, he smirks, and then steps cautiously around to the plug in the wall. "Or I could simply do... this." and unplugs the machine.
The porygon heads swing around wildly as the computer's monitor shuts off. "Oh very smart. That will keep the little beasty stuck in there. Now to drive any other nasty suprises out I'll need to head down to the engine room, but we'll need to stay in contact" he said reaching into the pocket the case came from pulling out 3 Grey Tablets handing them over to Tamira, Charlie and Sarah
"I'll explain more about these when we get on land, but these devices are called P*DA's Pokemon Digital Assitants. They have many features however we'll be using the messaging one. My P*DA address is the first in your contacts. Send me a message when you reach the boss and I'll cut off the power" he said showing them how to access the messaging portion.
Charlie nods, recalling his Slowpoke for the moment. "Understood Professor." He looks over at Sarah and shrugs. "Dunno, never used one before. I'm sure I'll figure it out pretty quickly. Now let's go beat up the ringleader."
"With the Porygon trapped, I imagine that the leader's got his hands full trying to run all the systems by himself. If we follow the signs we should be able to find the command deck pretty easily, and ambush him. At least we have a numbers advantage..." Charlie slows, before looking at the meeker of the two former assailants. "Does this leader of yours have more pokemon with him?"
"Oh?" Tamira said, noticing the change in his demeanor. She knew something was up with him. "Where is this brave front coming from? Certainly you haven't forgotten the position you are in, have you?" She started to move closer to him, till she was closer in his face. "You want to know something interesting about being tied up? It makes it extremely difficult to swim. So I think you have two options in front of you. Option one, you do tell us what you know, such as where the server room is, your leader's Pokemon, etc. Option two, we do some experiments to find the buoyancy of two men, a timburr, and a pidove. My hypothesis is that the pidove floats and the others sink."

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.

Hello anyone out there!

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.
