"Hmm I see, well take a look for yourselves if you like." he said motioning to microscope. "It looks like the chips are designed to burn themselves out, if the pokemon is caught or knocked out while it's attached." he explained.
"Well that's a correct guess. Take a look it's pretty tiny but it looks like they're dumb enough to mark their work, When it's not destroyed" he said stepping back so Sarah could look into the microscope.
"Well this is the hub for most of the travel and shipping in Gildarie. I could see them wanting to mess with it. It also may have been a test of the chips" he said.
When Sarah looked down the microscope she saw the two chips, one was black and charred, the other, had active circuits running along the top as she saw stamped on part of it. A purple "A" (Roll Perception DC 18)
"B?" The man said taking a closer look "Weird...They're probably just reusing someones tech." he said seeing it.
"Team Anarchy is strange unlike Teams like Sovereign or Rocket, they don't have a clear command structure. A lot of 'members' are actually applicants. They'll go to this website, sign up to do something crazy than they get sent the supplies.If they succeed they are members.Others are just criminals who use the shirts. But we haven't been able to figure out the command structure. Usually there's someone like Admins giving orders." he said.
"And as for why they'd use these chips, instead of their own pokemon is that, it's easier to cut and run like this, and if a Pokemon's power is greater than they could catch or handle. They could just slap one of these on it and let it run wild."
"Thanks for bringing these to me, it might help deal with similar incidents in the future. Here's something for your troubles" he said going over to the desk pulling out 700 pyen each and put something else on Sarah's pile a hunk of a strange metal looking like brass "Here's something a bit extra for you since you brought one in tact" he said looking to Sarah.
D.C. smiled "I can tell them that, but before I do you do know they can't hand out badges right? Also the 4 of us are some of the strongest trainers in Gildarie." he said looking at Sarah making sure she didn't think they'd be the same as other gyms.
D.C. chuckled "None taken, I guess a gym enthusiast is an alright challenger, means you'll likely make it to the end.Even if you won't want to fight me. Though Julian doesn't really have a gym anymore his crazy sister and his grand niece took over the place and made it the Ghost Gym after Talwa woods got infested with them." he explained
"Hmmm they should all be at home right now. Bast is the only one moving around. Do you have a map or a P*DA?" he asked.
D.C. opened up her map, pointing to three cities on the east coat of Gildarie "Alphonse lives in Vrucada I think he runs a hotsprings or something he did something to raise money for the league. Julian lives in Filay, I think he's mostly retired but you could go and see if he's up for it, and finally Blanche lives over here in Kamakif, you'd need a good water type or flying pokemon to get there though the only route to Kamakif is a sea right" he said pointing it out.
"I know all 3 gyms are standing, but 2 are going unused and like I said the Grass Gym is now the Ghost Gym." he said.
Raven smiled wide and extended her hand to D. C. Keeping her tone friendly she said "I should introduce myself properly too: I'm Raven Carter, and it's nice to meet you. You and the others, especially Bast should prepare well, because I'm coming to challenge you." Raven finished her little speech with a playful wink.
D.C. shook her hand "Nice to meet you as well, I'll make sure my team is ready." he said smiling.
"Out of curiousity which of Seedlings pokemon did you end up picking?" he asked looking at the girls.

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.

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.
