Digger whistled to his Litwick who quickly dashed over. "Hold up fellas. Guy, use Minimize." As hit Litwick began to shrink to nearly half his size Digger quickly scoured the ground for a rock or some small item to throw. Finding a solid looking stone a little smaller then his fist, he turned to the mounds of snow. "Who's there? You get one chance to come out! I'm warning you!"
You get the feeling that creatures that are hiding, are hiding out of fear; most likely fear for their life. You are unsure if they view you as a threat or there is another threat lurking out there, but they don't seem to be hostile or aggressive. If they were aggressive, they surely would have attacked after having been spotted, and subsequently called out by Digger.

fV8f0KML1-61-6 Digger couldn't tell whether the Swinub that were behind the snowbanks were about to run or charge. "Ready up Litwick. This could get nasty." Digger wasn't exceptionally nervous, but he wasn't about to let them catch him off guard.1-6·1-6·1-6
Finding the Swinub that Digger pointed out, he was sure they wouldn't attack and wanted to ease the rest of the group's minds. "It's alright everyone, they're not going to attack us; they're scared." Considering the others, it seems as though they wanted to beckon them over. Normally Ian wouldn't interfere with wild pokemon unless either necessary or they were what he was searching for. Considering his lack of interpersonal skills with pokemon, he figures he'll leave it to the others to bring them out of hiding. A swinub, however, wouldn't be bad to have in this frigid environment.1-6·1-6

Seeing the trio of Swinub that Digger had pointed out to the group Quinton tried to read their body language to see whether they would charge or run away from the group. "They may be scared but that doesn't stop them from attacking to try scare us off." Quinton says in reply to Digger

Digger nods to Quinton. I hear these Pokemon have roots back to the Pleistocene. that's over 100,000 years ago! I've gotta have one! (OOC: I'd like to have one of these in my party purely for thematic reasons. A Mamoswine would be a great Pokemon for a character obsessed with ancient Pokemon. But, that being said if this is someones favorite Pokemon or even if they just really want it or something then it's totally cool.) Digger readies a Pokeball and turns to his companions. Don't mind if I snag one do you? I'd love to do some research on one. They've been around for thousands of years you see and their evolu... Digger cuts him self short with a look of embaresment. "Sorry. I'm just excited I guess! This is the first time I've really had a chance to battle wild Pokemon with out my father. How fortuitous it is that it comes from such an ancient line!" Seeing how good Regina is with the Swinub an idea begins to form. Regina. Do you think you can help me catch one of these lil guys with us having to knock them around?
Listening to Digger's clearly excited tone of voice, Ian smiled, "I'm fine without one." Pleased even more-so by the suggestion of persuading the pokemon to join willingly. It would certainly make things easier on everyone including the wild pokemon.
The three wild Swinub, come out of hiding as Gina coaxes them out of their hiding spots. They don't look too terribly vicious and look around as her soft voice and tone seem to put them at ease. They come closer, inch by inch. Digger gets the idea to try an convince one of them to join their group willingly, rather than having to undo the trust you have started to form.
The trio of Swinub get closer, but a Pidgeotto flies in, and lets out a high pitch "SQUAK". It looks towards the Swinub and fat little meal tickets.
The Pidgeotto flies towards the middle-most fat little food source. It whips its wings into a fervor, and slings powdery snow into the eyes of the cute little guy. The snow covers the Swinub, and if it wasn't for a small shake, you wouldn't even know it was there. It flails around aimlessly, as it tries to see.

Seeing the Pigeotto come swooping in Digger does his best to act fast. "Litwick! Ember that good for nothing bird!"He quickly pulls out his note pad, scribbling furiously as the bird attacks. [Chronicler: Technique Training - 1 AP – Standard Action, Interrupt. Target: Sand Attack]
Watching the Pidgeotto interrupt their attempts to coax the Swinub to join them, he understood the ways of the wild pokemon feeding off of each other, but perhaps Digger getting this Swinub will prove very useful in the future. Following his lead, "Torchic, Ember the Pidgeotto!"
Regina moves closer to the Pidgeotto (South of the purple Swinub, which takes 5 steps to get) and tries sweettalking the bird. "Now there Mister Pidgeotto, you don't really want to hurt these little Swinub now do you?
Your group, seeing the Swinub in danger, goes into action. Gina rushes forward, trying to sweet talk the Pidgeotto, but stumbles over her own words as the Pidgeotto cocks its head to the side, angered as Gina as she tries to be "sweet". Gina follows up her stumble of words, by blowing a kiss at the flying menace. The Pidgeotto swoops as Gina begins to wink. The Swinub's all scatter in various directions, they are unsure who to trust, but know enough to not stick around. Gothita, moves its cute little legs, and stops next to her trainer. She begins to lets out a torrent of fake tears, which catches the Pidgeotto off guard. You can see a single tear start to shed from its eye, even in its hungry state, emotion is a powerful emotion.
Seeing the Pidgeotto attacking the Swinub Quinton shouts, "Let's get that bird Brunhild!" With that said the two move towards the flying pokemon, Quinton moving at a rapid pace to get the bird within his range.
Quinton moves forward, along with his Aron. Quinton focuses his inner zen, causing him to be lighter on his feet. Ian's Torchic, took a second to process its trainer's commands, but it's flame on its head flickers, and lights ablaze. The flame is directed towards the Pidgeotto, which is unable to dodge the fiery assault. It's wings are singed, but it stays hovering in the air, very unhappy something is coming between it and its next meal.
The Pidgeotto flaps its wings and get a wild wind brewing. It slams into Litwick, with considerable force. It seems to dissipate some as Litwick's defense against specialized attacks are strong
Regina runs furhter towards the Pidgeotto and tries her best to sweet-talk it again, even though she knows she failed spectacularly a few seconds ago. "Oh come on now, don't be like that, you really wouldn't want to hurt anyone now do you?"

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.
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.
