FIRE Day 14 XXXX AA
It was early morning in Luoyang, the Imperial City of Huaxia, as travelers and merchants entered through the Xing Gates along the city's walls. By oxen, horse, carrige, wagons, boats, ships and even by their own two feet people comes to the imperial city to sell their wares, find a fame, or seek their fortune. In any case, people comes to the city for a chance of happiness they cold not otherwise find outside in the wide expanses of Huaxia. Five such travelers have entered separately through the Xing Gates. Some of them having travel for several days. For others an uncomfortable night or two along the roads.
The sky brightens with the wakening day but the sun remains hidden behind the clouds and frost continue to cover the earth.
White breath from shop owners and fishers fill the edge of the streets and waterways as they prepare for another day's earning. Any question for directions was met mostly with grumbles and the rare smile before the five would arrive at the designated meeting point and, amazingly, on time.
The meeting place was a large stone bridge known as the Little Garados bridge, so named for the Garados that made up the bridge's sturdy railings. The occasional fishermen and merchant pass beneath the bridge towards what you assume was the water market. A verity of Pokémons fill the streets, some you've never seen near the temple or where as familiar as the Pokémons in your hometown. All of the known elements were represented by the Pokémons in the city. A Purrloin there, a Growlith hear and there, and the ever popular Lilpup. The majority of the locals do not seem overly concern or aware of the Pokémons living beside them. As it stands, it seems mostly children interact with the Pokémons.
No sooner have you arrived at the bridge and settled in for a wait did you realize there where four other humans each seeming to be waiting for something or some one as well.
(Meet and greet people. From what you can tell with the sun tucked away it's still early till the meeting time. By the luck of fortune you were all able to arrive early.)
