Tamira also accepts the money, and said, "No problem, happens to the best of us. Just next time maybe don't have everyone go down into the engine room, it's not like they need that many people down there anyways. But thanks again for the reward, hopefully the rest of the trip is less eventful." As she finished her sentence, she followed the rest of her group out onto the front of the boat.
Once Tamira joined the other 2 the ship roared back to life, someone finally turning the engines back on. The ship shot ahead speedily but it wasn't enough to knock the 3 of them off balance. The sea stretched ahead in front of them, but looking to the east they could see bits of the coast as the passed by a stretching desert that lead into a plain, which than it self lead into a forest, looming over all of it was a mountain that stood at the center rest of the region.
Ahead they saw a bit of fog building up, when they entered it. It was hard to see anything, but they heard an announcement "Passengers we apologize for the delay, but now I would like to formally welcome you to Gildarie" he said as they broke free of the fog a huge city appearing in front of them. It was bigger than Goldenrod or Saffron, a forest of tall buildings seemed to sit in front of them, and they could tell it was bustling with activity even from this distance, at the base of the city was a large harbor, but it was surprisingly bare compared to the activity of the city itself.
Speedy was sticking close to Charlie's legs not sure how comfortable he was with Tamira or Sarah, as they got closer to port Prof.Seedling stepped out "Hello there you 3, I heard from the captain how you were able to subdue the leader of this little hijacking. It looks like we picked some very able participants. Now I'm sure you three have some plans for when we arrive, but I hope you'll stop by my lab first. There's still a few more things I need to give you and explain" he said.
"Yes there is something I'd like to say...Thank you very much not just for aiding me, but for applying to go through this region. As you can see from the harbor, Gildarie has dropped out of favor abroad, but I believe with your help. We can show the League that Gildarie has come back from it's dark period and is better than ever. So from the Gildarie League and myself, Thank you very much for coming to Gildarie" he said bowing a bit as the ship pulled into the harbor.
"Now let's put this heaviness behind us and disembark, my lab is quite close to the harbor" he said.
Prof.Seedling lead the 3 off as the 3 of them could see a group of sailor's handing of Mike,Rod,Cyril and the pc from their lounge over to the authorities, Mike seeming to be yelling at the meek Cyril.
Prof.Seedling led them away from the harbor, and the group soon learned that 'close' in this cities standard was still a bit of a walk as they soon reached a short building with a purple roof that stood out from the skyscrapers next to it "Here we are" Prof.Seedling said smiling unlocking the door letting them inside.
The building was a bit of a mess papers strewn about, the shelves a bit dusty "Sorry for the mess, I've been the only one working here for awhile" he said leading them to the back of the lab where there was a large cylindrical machine in one corner a table in the center and a desk and bookshelf on the wall opposite the cylindrical machine, a framed photograph laying face down on the desk.
"Now first things first, the reason we went through all that trouble" he said reaching into his jacket pulling out 3 red devices laying them on the table "I needed to go out of region to get these, Your Pokedexes" he said smiling looking at the 3 new trainers.
"Well first I need to explain the P*DA properly. It's a multifaceted tool with a number of features." he said pulling out a similiar gray tablelet.
"You've already seen the Messenger section, It will allow you to send message to anyone else with P*DA or access to a PC, you can also register other people as contacts. I've already been registered to your contacts, so please don't hesitate to shoot me a message if you need assitance" he said
"It also comes with an updated map of Gildarie." He said bring up the map as he pointed at Bashir "We're here right now Bashir, the capital of Gildarie, it's home to both our Normal Gym in the front streets and the Dark Gym in the backstreets" he said
"Your P*DA also holds your Trainer I.D., Which you'll be able to use in various places, like gyms or to access some public transportation" he said.
"It can also give you news alerts on the region" he said messing around with it a bit until a page came up with a few headlines, The most recent being "New Trainers Expected to arrive in Gildarie"
"However, special to Gildarie's P*DA is it's versatility. There are cards similiar to Pokegear cards which can, give new features to your P*DA, like this" he said holding up a Yellow chip that he inserted into his P*DA a new option appear on the screen called 'Banking'
"This is the Banking app, it allows you to automatically send some funds to a banking account assigned to your Trainer I.D. whenever you win in a battle. You can toggle this feature on and off as you wish." he said opening up the app which showed a Total and the option to toggle collection on and off. "It will also allow you to deposit and withdraw money in ATMs around the region" he said.
"Finally in connection with the banking card is this" he said holding up a blue card inserting it into his P*DA an app called Shopping appearing on it. "This is the Shopping App, it will allow you to purchase items online with your banked money. Than have that item delivered to a Pokemart nearby,It's rather convient" he said smiling, but than frowned abit
"Now as you know Gildarie has been going through some troubles and without Leauge support, it means things are a bit different. Pokecenters in region need to charge a fee. That fee is currently 800 Pyen, but there are ways to avoid this, with items like this" he said holding up a red and white ticket.
"These are healing tickets, they are given out whenever you reach a new town or face a gym. It's used to keep trainers from simply grinding away at their pokemon to level them up quicker than using the Pokecenters to heal them up quickly." he said.
"However you shouldn't worry about healing, items are actually much cheaper here right now because of the lack of taxes, you can buy most items 40% off what they would be in other regions at marts" he explained.
"For right now here" he said setting down 3 yellow Banking chips, 3 blue Shopping chips and 3 Heal Tickets "This should help you along for right now." he said.
"Now if you have any other questions please feel free to ask, I know the city very well, I can tell you where you can find the gyms or places where wild pokemon are known to be" he said looking at the 3 of them
"Sure just tap the city twice and it will bring up a map of the city, The normal gym should be pretty easy to find with this. It's right on main street, though finding the Dark gym may be a bit harder. Violet wouldn't let us put it on the map" he said looking over his pad. "Are you sure you want to face the gym right away though? Zuzu is your only pokemon" he pointed out, knowing they couldn't have caught another pokemon in the time he was down in the engine room.
"Oh wait Sarah there is something I'd like to ask the 3 of you before you go off your seperate ways." Prof. Seedling said trying to catch the girl before she walked out.

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.
