The walk had been a little too bland for Hura's taste, but given that they, the fragile ex-humans (and even other... assorted creatures?) were probably worried about the upcoming fight, riling them up wouldn't help their chances. Oh, well. A few hours of quiet was no problem at all...
Now that they were here, though... "What? You mean that wasn't the Security Code Delta? And he said it so, so confidently..." That didn't answer their dear kitty-friend's question, though, so Hura continued without the previous flippant tone, "Nah, no clue for either. I'm no stranger to powers that identify people even though announcements are more fun, but I don't see who could've used it. Well, I guess we'll see if that was the right thingy first?"
The voice cuts as the energy seems to rise in the area, leading to a portal in the ground opening up. There's a pause, and a HUGE arm reaches out and slams into the ground. A grey humanoid arm with red veins, it begins pulling itself out revealing a grey muscled man of at least 3 or four stories comes out. (OOC, it's a machoke) But it then turns revealing an almost child-like derpy face, but with a sinister line running through it.
It looks at your group... hungrily.
(Init thread updated, but for now: Chell - 15 Freya - 12 Ghost - 11 Ryota - 10 Frank - 10 Machoke - 10 Hura - 9 Midna - 5 Machoke - 5 Norris - 4
Chell/Freya/Ghost are first up, and then Ryota/Frank will have to roll against: CsGlPB_v1d20 or the giant Machoke goes first. Likewise, Midna needs to roll against: 1d20)1d20·1d20
Frank looks up, and up at the colossal figure. "No, I'm afraid that was not an exaggeration..." He looks about him, at the assortment of people getting ready to assault the towering creature. "Best fell this beast quickly, lest it begin to eliminate our strength of numbers."
That said, Frank barely moves forward, keeping the beast well out of range. "Now listen here! You're just one more impediment in the way to us getting home, and you will fall! Best pray to your maker."
"More night terrors." Freya nodded sagaciously, monotone and matter of fact. She'd kept to herself for most of the trip, mumbling quietly every so often at the antics of Norris and her fish in particular. Even as the fighting began, she floated lazily in place, rather than rise up to a more advantageous position.
Aside from beating her wings four times in quick succession, to send a small twister in the muscular monster's direction.

Chell had been quiet (well... duh) during the walk to the mountain, not really interacting with anyone much, just listening to Cube chatter on (he seemed to be calming down a little bit by now, at least, so he wasn't talking as fast as he used to).
When the giant... man thing came out of the ground after Frank and Norris' actions, she merely rolls her eyes before jumping toward it, delivering a swift, precise kick to the giant's body as she passes by it.
Ghost had tensed up the moment that voice seemed to come out of nowhere, more or less knowing where this was going. It seemed like an odd place for an automated message to test authorization, but Ghost was through questioning this place. As the twin monstrosities came into view though... well, Ghost was really wishing she had her laser gun handy.
With the others moving in for an attack, she joined the fray and let loose a surge of lightning right at the creature the silent bunny had just struck.
The attacks seem to do some damage, but the large titanic creature doesn't really seem to be too bothered by it. That's... not good. It scans with it's creepy/derpy face among the people assembled at it's feet, and sees the flying one, and tries to scoop Freya up and throw the Noibat into the distance!
Oh how wonderful. A colossal guardian rising from the earth. Why wasn't there a normally sized one for once? Or at least normally sized to the way she was. Midna is definitely glad that she wasn't thrown across the meadow like Freya. Although with the giant's reach, she couldn't know how long she would remain unscathed.
"I highly doubt that you're going to be able convince that giant to lay off of us", Midna says drolly to her snappy companion. She doesn't waste time waiting for a response but sends a jittering blast of energy, that left her ears buzzing, at the giant.
Aah, how familiar! Just Hura, a swarm, and a colossal opponent that would overpower any one of them individually. Obviously Hura tended to survive those... Although at present none of his usual abilities seemed to be, ah, working at all. Not that most of them would help against a physical enemy, but that was beside the point!
Anyways, time to attack the unnerving creature. Frank's glare was quite something, so Hura felt it best to leave that to the croc. That, and he didn't feel like looking at the big beast. Instead, he sized up the opponent's foot, and delivered his best thwack. Probably wouldn't be enough to knock it over, but there was a process to these big enemies.
Ryota clacks his jaws together. "Oh come on!" he mutters. "One strike and you're out? That's a really restrictive security system!" He snaps his jaws together, wriggling as he prepares to lunge...and finds himself suddenly propelled forwards at the creature by a jet of water that arises beneath him, sending him smacking into its broad chest.
"What the heck? How did that happen?"
Ryota uses Aqua Jet (AC 2 Water Physical) on Machoke oAH8ISq01d20 2d8+231d20·2d8+23
The large creature didn't look hurt and pissed before, but it does now! Seeing what look like squishier targets, it begins moving toward Frank and Midna, but can't 'quite' make it their, Although along the way, it seems to have not forgotten about at least ONE of those assembled at it's feet. It lifts it's hand, looking at it, like it's figuring out how something works, and brings it down in a vicious chop to Chell!

Seeing the hulking figure lumbering before him and bringing his face down low to take a swing at Chell, Frank snags some loose dirt from the earth and flings it into the Machoke's eyes, before falling back to a safe distance. "Well, now, not so tough are you, with a swarm of creatures set upon ending you! You're not too much longer for this world."
Freya was toosed a decent distance straight up into the air. When she landed, she wrenched her eyes shut, sighed, picked herself back, inhaled, and released the pent up air in a violent vortex aimed right at the Machoke's face.
Afterward, she resumed her lazy hovering as if nothing had happened.
Machoke moves forward 3 more meters, so it should be in range of all it can hit with:

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.
