Miguel was startled when one of the floating hands just hit the kid and sent him sprawling to the ground. Okay, the good news was there was much less screaming now that the weird floating creature punched the snooze button on the kid hard. The bad news was they were surrounded by these weird-ass creatures.
Fuck. What to do... wait! He remembered something.
"Ciara. Check the small bag and see what the kid gave us before giving up the ghost, will you? We're most likely going to need it." He asked before looking over at the other girl. "Yo, the kid's not gonna answer you. Pay attention to the ghosts."
Suzume starts. That didn't seem to come from anyone present, unless these shadow beings were now messing with her head... not that that wouldn't fit. "And what am I supposed to do? This kid was actually ready for a fight and he's flattened." She says to the air, her voice returning to her slightly. She ignores Miguel for the moment, despite seeming to answer him.
Kukuku~ Well isn't this nostalgic? Once again, someone is nice enough to try and help you escape a sticky situation, and once again, they die for you X3. Jeez, are you always going to play the damsel in distress?
Miguel started and then furrowed his eyebrows, wondering where the fuck it came from. "Well mysterious voice, the plan is not to play that this time. Somehow. Who are you by the way and where the fuck are you talking from? And Suzume right? Who are you talking to...?" He asked as he looked over to her.
Oh ho ho?~ Are we finally breaking the mold? Fighting stereotypes? You might just be interesting little Diablo. All right, I'll give you a chance. Call upon me then. Embrace your inner self
As Suzume opens the bag, she finds a number of sturdy tarot cards illuminating a bright light. She can't quite explain why, but she suddenly feels as though if she happens to grab one, it would do something . . . interesting.
Miguel sees the tarot cards as well, but once the voice in his head stops talking, he suddenly sees them start to illuminate, and experiences the same sensation of Suzume
The card radiates brighter in Suzume's hand. Around her, time stands still, and everything seems de-saturated. The card's faces starts taking on the appearance of a fierce blue/white tiger embodied in blue flames. It seems to be speaking to her
"Of course child. I am thou, thou art I. Agree to make a contract with me, and unleash your inner strength"
An instinctive thought of breaking the card in her hand fills Suzume
"Stereotypes, huh? Since when have I ever- you know what? Nevermind. That's a good a suggestion as any. Might as well be honest with myself." With that comment, he walked over to Suzume and Ciara and picked up a card.
Both Suzume and Miguel became enveloped in their own bright aura, Miguel in red, Suzume in Blue. The aura eventually became pillars of light that pierced into the sky, and totally weren't over the top at all. As the light passed away, the dust settled, the number rain lifted a bit, and both characters were revealed to have new outlandish clothes. Suzume was adorned in a linkin park inspired band uniform, while Miguel looked like a well toned superhero. Their respect card creatures were also now physically with them.
Byakko "Hello Child,I am Byakko. From this day forward, my strength is yours"
Zoroark "Kyahahahaha! Oh it's so great to finally get to stretch my legs! Ooh! Look at my tail! It's so cute and fluffy! You're really lucky to get a persona like me Wee Diablo ~ Oh where are my manners. I am Zoroark, and from this day forward, we are partners in crime! Don't disappoint me~"
The lighter seems to almost go in slow motion as panic starts ensuing into Ciara. Her senses are heightened. Her heartbeat seems so much louder. She feels each pulse of blood rush through her body. All seems to be horror. That is, until she hears a comforting voice
You poor soul. You've just watched everything fall apart this whole time haven't you? Allow me to grant you a taste of my power
The lighter stops right before making contact with the monster. It look, perplexed, at the floating object, which then radiates an ominous purple glow. lightly, it taps the monster in between the eyes. The monster seems intoxicated, and is incapable of floating in a straight line. Suddnly, the lighter lit itself, and the haunter became engulfed in a pitch black flame. It screeched in complete agony before evaporating into numbers, floating into the sky
Seeing as people were not moving, Jericha had no choice but to go back, and try to forcibly drag everyone to safety. She pushed herself away from the bank entrance, and takes off full sprint back to the group. Unfortunately, by the time she gets there, she helplessly watches the strange boy get KO'd. She nearly stumbles as she reaches the group, but catches herself by putting her hands out. As she pulls herself up, a chill runs up her spine as they are now surrounded. Oh no.....Ooohhhh nooo....... She backs up as much as she can. The words, and ramblings of the others completely fly over Jericha's head. Except she does catch onto the word "bag." She turns around quickly and looks into the set bag. "Yeahyeah! Is there something like a weap-....huh? What are those?"
As Jericha opens the bag, two tarot cards go flying out. One gently floats in front of Ciara's face, while the other bolts straight in between Jericha's eyes. Both take on the forms of different creatures, one being a witch like ghost with a pleasant smile, the other being a streamlined superhero with intense eyes
God Dammit I am SO not ok with this whole "Oh how scaaaaary! I can't handle a few loser monsters. I want my daddy, boohoo QnQ" Bullshit you got going on! God dammit girl you are a bone fide BADASS! REMEMBER?! You better get your shit together, I won't even consider you for a contract . . . That being said, if you were to need my help, I'd be happy to oblige

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.

Hello anyone out there!

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...
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.
