Suzume bawks at Miguel's appearance, but then notices her own strange attire. "How sure am I this isn't a dream..." She looks to the blue flamey ice tiger in front of her. "So you are my power... lets clear out these bullies."
Jericha seemed more confused now as a card was now talking to her. She had never guessed this is how she would go insane, but upon grabbing the card, she could feel warmth and energy radiating off it. The..."card's words" bounced around in her head. She grimaced at it bringing up her dad, but being called a badass was nice. "...Yeah...A badass....Hehe. I am a little out of my element though...Help you say?"
Suzume was all prepared to start a fight, when suddenly, two more pillars of over the top anime light spewed from the other two people. As the Purple and Green dissipated, Jericha and Ciara emerged in wonderfully extravagent outfits as well, each with their respective persona
Ciara It is such a pleasure to finally meet you face to face my dear. I am Mismagius. From here on forward, I am by your side. Mismagius follows up her dialogue with a light nuzzle
Jericha EEEEEYEEEAAAAAAHHHH!!! THAT'S WHAT IM TALKING ABOUT! The name's Gallade twinkletoes, and from now on, I'm your bestest friend in the history of best friends. Let's rip these losers a new one!!!
As the final transformation begins, a sense of revelation dawns upon you all. You aren't sure how, but you seem to understand your newfound skills/powers (supernatural shit). Suzume recognizes that her cornett has magical blessings now. Ciara managed to find 2 shards, a red and blue, in the numerical ashes of her fallen foe.
There is a monster for each of you to fight. They seem sort of terrified "N-n0--M@tt3r!! YoU*_W1l()L____@11*b3 Du5TTTt Zo0n*&&4EnoUgH#%!!!
The stage is cleared, you have eliminated the evil abominations. As you take a moment to process everything that's just happened, you'll notice the kid starts sitting up, groaning from his injuries. He notices you, and your newly acquired weeb outfits and magical beast friends, and has a pretty exasperated expression.
"Dear god, this is going to by my whole day isn't it?"
Miguel was busy chatting with Zoroark about the general area and other things when he suddenly heard someone talk. He blinked as he saw the kid get up and he tilted his head. "Oh hey, you're not dead. Ready to explain now? And Zoroark, you owe me a freebie. I'll have you pay up later."
The Zoroark pouted. "D'awwww... I really thought he was dead."
Jericha let out sigh, and a small chuckle. This whole situation seemed to take a turn for the better. She also finally took notice of her of her new attire. It was polished steel armor, a flowing red scarf. Hmm...No clue where this came from, but very cool! Like some sort of knigh-..W-Whoa!!! HEY! She quickly realized how exposed her chest, and legs were. She did her best to cover up a bit, and looked to the others. "H-Hey! Where did these clothes come from anyways!?"
the boy glares "My apologies, see I just happened to start my day thinking, "hey, you know what would be swell? Not knowing what it's like for 3 of my ribs to be uninvited guests to my lungs' barmitzvah. So here I am, spending my day in the usual way, fighting off monsters nice and peaceful like, and suddenly, what do I see? Why the faces of 4 random civilians who are about as helpful to my situation as a cactus in a preschool sandbox. But no, let me just take the last 5 minutes of consciousness I have left to enlighten you on the WONDERFUL MISTAKE YOU ALL JUST MADE!!!
The boy take a breath to regain his composure "First of all, welcome to Mythos."
And we will pause there until tomorrow, so Ken can participate
Suzume is happy to see the others don't need her help, and instead she decides to focus on her strange outfit. "I look like I'm in a freaking marching band. Although given the whole fighting with a cornet thing..." She looks at the other's outfits: Miguel's Superhero skinsuit looking thing, Jericho's Plate featuring maximum skin exposure and Ciara looking like some celtic witch/warrior. And then there's the kid in his cloak and leathers.
Speaking of the kid, looks like he's finally up and... belligerent as ever. Great. "Mythos. Great. Well, I'm Kenchi Suzume, who are you? Judging by how much is going on I take it you have a persona too? Why isn't it here like ours?"
The kid seems noticeably less aggressive when speaking to Suzume. His demeanor is more relaxed.
"My name is . . . Sparrow. Those things you just fought were called shadows. They're kind of like your personas, except if they were tainted by the darkness of your soul for too long, and went evil on you. Basically the more suffering there is in the real world, the more shadows there are here, and there have been a lot more than usual lately. I don't normally stay in Mythos as long as I have today, so I exasperated myself, and can't call upon my persona."
Sparrow pulls out his phone and starts fiddling with it
"That being said, I'd appreciate it if we could perhaps have this conversation back in the real world. We're pretty safe for now, but there's probably more shadows coming soon. Do you guys have the Jack app?"
"Jack App... is that what this thing is?" Suzume pulls out her phone and points it at Sparrow. "Oh yeah, it appeared suddenly and laughed at me and then I was here. Tapping it did nothing either. How do you work it?" Suzume is glad the kid has calmed down a little. Maybe it's because I'm the only one that hasn't screamed at him today.
Sparrow walks closer to the phone, and messes around with it to see what's happening
"Yes that's it. I don't really know where it comes from, but when it shows up on your phone, it lets you travel from the real world to this world whenever you want. There's some things to know about it though. 1. When there's an enemy nearby, it won't let you leave, so that's probably why you guys couldn't use it earlier. 2. The little snowball creature is super demeaning. All you have to do to get him is press this . . . then this aaaan . . . yup, just confirm that your ready to go home."
All this talk of Mythos, Personas, shadows, and phone apps was just way too much info, way to fast. She just stood there with a befuddled look on her face, while Gallade stood there stoically with its arms crossed. Jericha scratched her head, and waved. "Ummm...Yeah...I'm Jericha. Yeah sooo...What the hell is this place exactly? Why are we here in the first place?"
Huh, the kid was calmer when speaking to the other kid. Interesting. Miguel had a thoughtful and amused expression on his face as he took out his phone and eyed the strange mocking app while letting the girls talk to the kid for the moment. They seem to be getting more than he did from earlier, plus he and his Zoroark may be trying to puzzle out the fancy phone and the app within it. That was important to figure out yes.
He was listening though, and he may be glancing up at them every so often.
"I'm with Sparrow, lets discuss this in the real world. Oh but it's super crowded there, lets meet up inside... that cafe there, it'll be easier to talk in there." She waits for confirmation from the others but gets ready to confirm return to real world.

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.
