Round Two. Digger continues his frantic scribbling as the fight continues on. Technique Archive - 1 AP – Standard Action, Interrupt. Mightenya's Tackle
Round Three. Guy! Pull back. Let's see what our new friend can do. Digger, running to the edge of the cliff, takes out the Swinubs Pokeball and flings it as far as he can. As the ball soars through the air and lands between the new trainer and the oncoming Mightenya. Ramano! Get in there and take out that Mightenya! Use fissure!
Torchic moves up, and engulfs the nearest Mightyena in flames. Torchic, despite its small appearance, creates quite the gout of flame. The Mightyena takes severe burns over its body, and it slumps to the ground. It is clear, it is not used to fighting so much for its meals. Gina tries to sweet talk the Mightyena, but Torchic's Ember attack stifles the threat.
Swinub, is sent out, in hopes to end the fighting. A massive hole opens up under the Mightyena, but it manages to dodge out of the way and avoid anything severe.
Quinton slings his pack off his back and pulls a potion out of it and applies it to Hildebrand, "This might sting but soon you'll feel much better afterwards" As the mist settles over the Pokemon its wounds grow smaller, but don't seal completely.
Gina, tries to sweet talk the ferocious beast. She blows a soft kiss towards it. The Mightyena snarls at Gina as she tries to be nice. She than tries to flirt with t, calling it cute, and be non-violent. It appears to work for the short-term, as the Mightyena simply stares, head cocked to the side, staring at Gina as if it it warming up to her/ Gina wonder how long the "truce" will last between man and beast.
Regina: 14 ("sweet kiss" fails, flirt success) Quinton: 10 (gives potion to Hildebrand) Mighyena (blue): 10 (stands, staring at Gina) Digger: 10 (interrupt notes) Gothita: 7 Torchic: 6 (IDLE) Ian: 5 (delays) Honedge: joins back up with Quinton to reach Mightyena Swinub: tackle Mightyena for 6 damage
The trainer looks to Ian, who is standing there protecting him from the savage beast, looks to Ian with a small tear forming in his eye "Y..yes. I was just..just trying to gather a berries from a patch I know about, when they attacked. I only have a few pokémon, and they were no match for the three Mightyena and their pack tactics."
Meanwhile, the fearless Swinub, rams its small body into the Mightyena, hoping to hurt it. The Mightyena takes a small bruise to its ribs, as the small frame is barely able to get past the Mightyena's tough frame.
Regina sees the Swinub charging towards the Mightyena. "No wait, don't do it! We don't have to fight it anymore!" She dashes forward, snow flying up underneath her feet. Just when the Swinub was about to make contact, she pushes the Mightyena away and takes the hit in his place. "Don't worry little budy, you were only doing what you thought was best." She pets the Swinub on the head, smiling to show he didn't do anything wrong. She turns her attention towards the Mightyena again "Are you ok?"
[ooc: Yes, I know, foolish and dramatic attempt Also, this will be my action for next turn, but as this is an interupt, I'm using it now. and whad'ya know, it worked ]
[ooc:warming up...only temporary. I was trying to describe the success of Gina's maneuver. The Mightyena is infatuated with her, but only for this round. It will take a few Charm checks or Intimidate checks to convince it to be willingly caught]
Listening to the trainer, Ian nodded. "You and your Pokemon are alright now; we'll finish things here. If you're headed the same direction, you can tag along for a bit." Offering them to join until their ways part, he holds out his hand, "The name's Ian; Earth Scientist in-training." Seeing as the boy wasn't injured, he wanted to calm him through reassurance and, perhaps, the start of a friendship.
Gothita starts crying, and the Mightyena cannot help but have a tear form in its eye as Gothita turns on the waterworks. The Gothita than tries to flirt with the hungry beast. She winks at it, trying to be cute, and it appears to have worked for the time being. The Swinub tries to tackle the beast, but its trainer yells for it to stop. Its momentum cannot be stopped as it crashes to the ground in a heap, to redirect its attack. The Swinub than looks back to Digger...confusion and bewilderment in its soft little eyes.
Regina: 14 ("sweet kiss" fails, flirt success) Quinton: 10 (gives potion to Hildebrand) Mighyena (blue): 10 (stands, staring at Gina) Digger: 10 (interrupt notes) Gothita: 7 Torchic: 6 (IDLE) Ian: 5 (delays) Honedge: joins back up with Quinton to reach Mightyena Swinub: goes to tackle, holds up and falls to the ground prone
Damage: Blue Mightyena: 0 damage
[ooc:You can try a charm check to persuade the Mightyena to stop attacking. Failure, means it will become Very Hostile, and refuse to be a willing catch. You won't know if you succeed or not until the Mightyena's turn]
Regina: 14 (charms Mightyena. it becomes less hostile) Quinton: 10 (gives potion to Hildebrand) Mighyena (blue): 10 (stands, staring at Gina) Digger: 10 (interrupt notes) Gothita: 7 Torchic: 6 (IDLE) Ian: 5 (delays) Honedge: joins back up with Quinton to reach Mightyena Swinub: goes to tackle, holds up and falls to the ground prone
The Mightyena, listens to the tone of Gina, and its ears perk up for a brief moment as she speaks. It seems less intent on tearing you to shreds, but it isn't looking like it wants to willing be your overgrown puppy either. The natural instinct to attack still runs high, fueling the beast. It's stance softens, but it still seems on edge given it is more or less surrounded on all sides.

Digger recalls his Litwick, and watches the mutt closely. Raymond the Swinub backs away from the Mightenya slowly. Digger whispers to his Swinub, trying to apologize for the misunderstanding. Shh. Good boy Raymond. It's ok. It was my fault. I'm sorry.

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...

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.
