Evie tenses as the Sigilyph literally come out of the walls - one of them right in front of her. She doesn't have time to wind up for her own punch - not yet - but she can at least give Noxra her marching orders. Ideally, this would involve taking out the Sigilyph in front of her before it can do her any harm.
"Noxra, get around it! Use Bodyslam!" The giant Wurmple wriggles her way around to flank the Sigilyph, potentially boxing it in between Evie and the wall - at least, unless the ceiling's high enough for it to fly over her. She launches herself bodily at the flying Pokémon, trying to bash it into the wall it came out of.
The southern Golett cringes as Weavile's attack injures it, with shards of ice piercing it's clay arms and legs. The southern Sigilyph is also injured by Tilda's webbing, barely shaking it off as the sandstorm rages. Noxra's atack on the northern Sigilyph is less effective but strikes true nonetheless.
The northern Sigilyph rewards Noxra with a psychic blast. Psybeam AC 2 vs IspB2tHG1d20 Damage: 2d10+27

Horace turns to the Koffing glaring at it, "I gave you life, the Sigilyphs in the area have gone rogue and are attacking. Your job is to dispose of them... I will return shortly." Horace then disappears without leaving a trace.

Winter's Kiss regains the tick of HP lost from Sandstorm.
Buggaboo had been obeying Karla, staying invisible near her. With these new enemies reappearing he floats over and unleashes a surprise attack to startle the northern one! It also draws on the energy stored in its gourd to protect it agaisnt the course sand flying everywhere!

As Noxra recoils from the blast of energy, Evie takes advantage of the shift in its attention to wind up and slam a fist into it from the other side, intending to slam it right up against the wall. Maybe she'll rattle its brain a little. "Watch where you point that thing!"
She dashes around the Sigilyph and vaults onto Noxra's back. She always feels better mounted up on her Pokémon, even if it's a giant caterpillar and she has to hitch her legs up. She's still training Noxra up for this task - this will be their first real battle this way - but she's confident Noxra is up to the job. Though the sand whipping through the room from the Koffing is irritating - if it doesn't listen to Horace, she thinks it's going to be her next target.
Evie uses Chip Away! AC 2 vs 6dGxdx|81d20 2d6+21 Physical Normal damage; ignores Armor, DR, and increased Combat Stages. Evie's Swift: If her Chip Away attack hits and the Sigilyph is still up, spend 1 AP to use Roughneck. Sigilyph loses 1 Special Attack CS Evie's Shift: Move to and mount up on Noxra.

The northern Golett is injured and flinched by Karla and Buggaboo's surprise combination.
Horace vanishes, leaving behind an unimpressed Koffing.
Evie hits the Sigilyph and mildly intimidates it.
The Koffing shaped from clay looks around for Horace and advances on Noxra when it acknowledges Horace is gone, blasting the Wurmple with sand. Sand Tomb AC4 vs Rii8xx1M1d20 Damage: 2d6+21 The target is put in a Vortex.

"Weavile, strike it again on my signal." Weavile readies its claws as Cassandra closes in to assist, then launches a flurry of icy claw attacks at the Golett it struck before.

Luckily for Noxra, the stream of sand isn't much harsher than the sand already whipping around the room, and mostly sleets off her spiny hide. But it only adds to the grit in the air, which is definitely beginning to tell on her, rubbing raw patches around her muzzle - and Evie isn't too keen on them being surrounded, either. "Let's show 'em who's boss! Noxra - Thrash!"
She holds on tightly as the massive Wurmple beings to twist and buck around, lashing out first at the Sigilyph on one side, then at the clay Koffing on the other, smashing into each with powerful blows as she doubles back on her own length like a snake. After a few moments Evie urges her out from between the two opponents and back towards the wall, but Noxra is still fighting mad and looking a little dizzy, not to mention having to fight the flow of sand swirling around her.
Noxra used Thrash! Thrash hits all adjacent foes (the northern Sigilyph and the Koffing). AC 3 vs 5X0apQnj1d20, Smite 3d12+26 Physical Normal damage After dealing damage, the user is Enraged and Confused. Vortex save: 1d20 vs DC 20 Confusion save: 1d20 vs DC 16 Rage save: 1d20 vs DC 15
Shoko uses her standard action to switch Tilda for Octillery. She also uses brutal orders on Octillery.
Shoko tilts her head mildly towards Octillery while raising an eyebrow, "The round one, it needs to go away. Can you make it happen?" Octillery looks back up at Shoko and raises one of its tentacles to its forehead signaling it's ready to go.
Horace crashes into the remaining Golett appearing from nowhere enveloped in shadows, "I've got this one go take care of the rest." Horace motions to a great ball on his belt, "He should be of great use to me." Horace then turns all his attention to the Golett standing in front of him, "You've got one shot to take me out. Go for it." He gives a menacing smile before reaching for his great ball.

Evie manages to twist Noxra out of the way of the battering wind that cuts through the cloud of sand, sparing them both a pounding, though the sand itself still stings her eyes. She urges Noxra forward, though there's little headway to be made against the swirl of sand around them. She throws a heavy-booted kick at the Koffing - it might not do much, but it probably won't hurt matters.

Noxra and Evie both aim parting blows at the Koffing, intending to give it something to remember them by. Then the ground begins to shake and both of them have to hang on! Luckily, Noxra is built stable and low to the ground, so she isn't as badly shaken as she might be, and as for Evie... well, Evie's just tough. In fact, she sits up straight and glares directly at the Koffing all through the earthquake. Having someone just no-sell your attack can be pretty intimidating.
Evie's AoO: AC 4 vs dcX0q|NA1d20 1d8+17 Physical Normal damage Noxra's AoO: AC 4 vs 1d20 1d8+22 Physical Normal damage Evie activates Mettle! An attack that would inflict massive damage is resisted one step further, and Koffing loses -2 Attack CS!

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.

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.

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.
