"Hello? IS the village elder around? We found these young children lost in the woods! Does anybody know where their parents might be?" Arata calls as they approach the large house, hoping to bring the proper village authority figures to the children. He notes the damage to all the buildings as well, and quieter now, asks "Children, what has happened to the village?"
Bug frowns, looking to the children with worry in his eyes. He reaches for the containment orbs on his belt, speaking to the younglings gently.
"Why do children shake as if cold? Bug worries it is related to why girl hides arm from group. Bug is not upset, but knowing if a fight is starting is beneficial to group. Will children share with Bug what happened?"
For now, he leaves the searching to the other planeswalkers. His place was here, keeping his word and defending the children.
"Where is everybody? It doesn't feel right to see an empty district like this. Was there some kind of raid?" Cho looks around for signs of a struggle, blood pools, anything. She realizes she's actually looking for a Rakdos insignia painted somewhere (probably in blood), but reminds herself there probably wouldn't be anyone with that MO here. And besides, nothing was even on fire.
Arata's shouting draws the attention of a few of the villagers. Lamps can be seen being lit in windows, and from the biggest house in the middle of town emerges a hulk of a man in just his pants and boots, and a sword almost as long as the man was tall. He looks around, his gaze a mix of fear and intensity until he settles his gaze on the party in front of him.
"What are you talking about children?"
He looks a little closer before spotting the duo the group had found in the woods, his expression turning to revulsion. He immediately points his blade towards the group. His voice seethes with venom as he addresses you all, causing the children to huddle further behind Bug.
Bug bristled at the man, ushering the children behind him protectively before opening his mouth to speak.
"Hail swordsman. Bug and companions are travelers, hailing from far lands. Bug does not remember the name. Company found these two children in the woods and offered assistance. Could swordsman tell us why he seems so angry to see then again?"
Bug spoke calmly but his eyes were aflame. He had vowed to protect these children and he would do that job, regardless of how many injuries he sustained. He looked to the other members of the party, wondering how they would react to this development.
Arata's hand was on his hilt as soon as the sword appeared, and at the display of anger it was drawn, Shiki-kan imitating him once more. The display of revulsion could be well founded for all he knows, but right now he has a vow to honour. He takes a quick glance back at the children, ensuring he is in a defensive position before them. He leaves the talking to bug for now... Forgetting the lands they hailed from was a weak excuse, but would only get weaker if more were to chime in without correcting him.
Cho-Mizzem steps forward as well. "My associate has a point. You act as if we brought Rakdos himself to your door, when all we've done is bring a few lost children in from the woods. What's the problem here?"
Was it the company that made the man fearful and angry? Was he just still on edge from what had happened in this town? Or, wait- "If- If you are afraid we hurt them, I swear we did nothing. This is exactly how we found the children, honest!"

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.

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.
