The odd Pokemon raise their arms in tandem, and a squealing sound fills the room. Though it hurts Julia's ears, Eric is affected even more- his eyes water up in pain, and he covers his ears with his tiny hands. Reks is also affected, though not as badly as poor Eric. Afterwards, the odd Pokemon withdraw from Reks' flashlight, hiding behind some old boxes. Skout, having finished relieving himself on the door, bounds downstairs to stand by his master's side, panting happily.
Reks psychs himself up one more time, We can do this, rawrrg. Reks beats on his chest a couple more times, and the points his flashlight towards the duskull on the left. Skout, take the ghoul on the right. Make it hard to breath, and use Smog!
Skout nods at the order and moves up close to the hiding duskull. Taking in a deep breath and letting out a noxious gas towards the ghoul.

Julia winces at the noise, more in sympathy with Eric than because of her own irritation. "Come on, focus, Eric, everybody! Don't let it get to you, stay on target!"
Eric grinds his little teeth and squints as he tries to focus through the noise. Still curled up, he rolls his way forward, searching for a good angle to strike around the boxes his quarry has hidden behind. When he can finally get a clear shot, his quills lengthen into long vines that lash around the corner of the box. He does his best to concentrate on his target, despite the painful noise shaking his focus and his own curled-up state obscuring his view a little.
Julia's Standard: Use Focused Training on Eric! Eric is doubly Focused (+2 to accuracy checks, +4 to Skill checks) Julia's Swift: Trigger Battle Conductor! Focused Training now applies to Reks and Skout as well (+1 to accuracy checks, +2 to Skill checks)
Eric's Shift: four spaces east to I-E Eric's Standard: Vine Whip targeting the Duskull at J-F. (Accuracy Calc: +2 from Focused, +1 for Momentum, -4 from Curled Up, -4 from Interference, net -5) p2F2JY8d1d20-5 vs AC 2 2d6+18 Physical Grass Damage
Eric's attempt to smack the odd Pokemon around fails; the Pokemon seems to fade from reality for a moment, and Eric's attack passes through thin air. Skout is only a little more successful; his poisonous gas hits the Pokemon, but it barely seems affected. As the move connects, the creature's eyes flash for a moment, and Skout howls in pain. This seems to amuse the creatures, who give a horrible coughing sound that only loosely sounds like laughter. Their mirth then subsides, and both extend their arms so quickly you can barely track them. Eric has no problem sidestepping the first attack, but Skout gets hit by the second, though it doesn't seem to be very effective.

Julia makes a low noise of frustration, shaking her head. "I don't think this is one we can handle on our own. Maybe with all four of us we'd stand a chance, but like this..." She jerks her head to the entrance. "We should pull back and get Min and Cloak. These things are too strong to deal with one-on-one."
She doesn't like the idea of leaving Lazuli's brother in here, wherever he is, but with only Reks and their two Pokémon against the more powerful ghosts, their odds of making it to him aren't good. If they go on this way they're only going to get themselves killed. "Come on, Eric, pull back! We gotta get reinforcements!"
Eric chirrups in frustration - between missing his target and now being told to break off the attack, this isn't turning out to be his idea of a good fight even if he hasn't taken much of a beating so far. Still, he rolls back away from the boxes and uncurls, shaking his head in irritation as he sets himself up to cover their retreat.
Julia's Shift: back up to A-D Julia's Standard: Use Sentinel Stance on Eric! Until the end of Julia's next turn, Eric can attempt to intercept for any ally as a Shift action, and gains 10 DR against the intercepted attack.

"Seriously, let's get out of here and get Min and Cloak. Those things are too much for the two of us." Julia likes to think she's a pretty good judge of such things. After all, it's been frankly her biggest contribution to the caravan up to now.
She beckons Eric to her side and starts heading for the door. "Getting this Lapis kid is no good if we get ourselves killed along the way. We need more firepower. And maybe those spores Cloak's Paras can shoot, that oughta take the wind out of their sails." Not that Julia's ever seen a sailboat.
Reks, seeing that the foes have "disappeared" backs up a bit. Keeping his light pointing forwards still to see if they try to bull rush them from the shadows. Julia, go get the others. Quick. I'll make sure they don't follow you up. Hurry. We need to get the boy before he gets injured down here. Skout, on me!
Reks moves to B-D and get skout right in front of him at C-D

"Okay, fine. Don't stand around if they come after you and you can't hold out. We'd rather not lose you."
Julia dashes up the stairs as quickly as she can and calls out the door. "Cloak, Min! Got some nasties in here, we could use your help. Two we've seen and they're pretty strong - skulls for faces, probably Ghost-type I guess. They disappeared into the floor just now, but Reks and I can't handle them alone."
Min, give me something to eat. Half of portion, no more, no. And bit of water. Then, go, yes, and leave us alone. Cloak continued examination, and, at same time, started to remove part of his.. well, cloak, to then order Spore... Cut out part of fabric. Careful, do not wound me. He ensured Spore have good access to his clothes (that's what's under what's usually visible. Grey, featureless), and guided it to prepare few impromptu bandages. Then he took out one of potions, and mixed it a bit before soaking one of bandages in third part of mixture and carefully covering damaged arm, while, at same time, ensuring that damaged issue will be on proper places. Then he waited for Min to bring water and food, and looked at Julia Spore, go with her, yes. Skull-ghosts are your patients, yes. Prevent their movement with stun spore, then prevent infection spread with poison powder in their eyes, got it? Follow Julia's guidelines.
As Spore trundles off, Cloak finishes the bandaging. And he actually did pretty well, all things considered. While her hands are going to need to heal on their own, at least they won't be exposed to the possibility of infection. The bandages will need to be changed ever so often, however. As Cloak admires his handiwork, a horrific apparition arises from the ground in front of him. It's a skull-faced specter, but it's on fire. Chunks slough off, causing the ghoulish appearance to become even more disturbing. It claws at itself for a moment, trying to numb the pain, before turning to Cloak, fixing its crimson-eyed gaze on him and unleashing an unearthly howl of fury. But for all its fury, it's backing away from you.
Min gives cloak what he asked for, before turning to follow Julia. But then she hears something behind her, and turns around quicky. Frozen for a moment, she stares at the creature in front of Cloak, before starting to scream. "G-G-GHOSTS!" She screams, taking a few paces back. She keeps looking at it, unsure what to do.

Everyone suffers at least one bad betrayal in their lifetime.

Julia mutters something very unpleasant. "They're up top now! Try looking for the guy, yell if you get in trouble!"
She dashes back up the stairs in an attempt to salvage whatever the heck has happened back aboveground.

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?

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.

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.
