Jericha covered her ears with all the noise. WAY too much noise in this room! She was not very tech savvy beyond using her phone, or personal computer. "Oi! Lets take it to the roof, and just fling it as far as can we can throw it. As long as it isn't in here...uuugghhh...."
Suzume watches in amusement at the antics, but at the sound of the doors giving way she springs toward the container, tripping over Ciara. She raises ehrself back up "Sorry about that Ciara..." And tries to examine the device with Ciara. "Oh... you;re done already. Neat"
As Ciara hits the off button, there's a noticable lack of silence. Perhaps it's just for show? Suddenly the device starts shaking aggressively, and a piece of tape falls of above the words off. Blast off? A hole appears at the bottom of the container, and it fires off like a rocket out the window, and far off into the distance. The Shadows below begin chasing after it.
"Oh. It just had an off button. Oh well. Problem solved." Miguel said with a lazybshrug as he went to see if any of the shadows that had followed them had also gone chasimg after the thing like the horde he sees from the distance.
If not, he would address them. "We did what you guys wanted. Will you hear us out now that the infernal racket is gone? We have an offer for you." He then subtly looked around and smiled at the others, hoping that they would get the hint to go along with him.
The rest of the shadows seem to be compliant, but attentive. They still don't fully trust you. The mantis maintains his clutch on the blue kitty and keeps his distance, the angry puffball is doing a "stand your ground" sort of tactic, the giant metal beast seems distracted, and the haunter chuckles to itself after Suzume's comment
"Oh child, you may have whatever words you'd like. I do enjoy watching your wailing~"
"You've got our attention humans! What do you want?! Choose your words carefully, or I'll eat your brains!"
"That's a better choice boss. Brains have a better source of Iron"
"Will you be quiet while the grown ups are talking?!?!"
Grown ups? Does that mean I should call you senpai?"
Ah ha. He got their ears and their compliance but he could see that he hadn't gotten their trust yet. It was time to see how open their minds will be to their offer. But how to best spin this...?
"Now I know you folk are leery of humans because of what they apparently do to Shadows but we are new and not inclined to go about business in the normal of attacking and murdering indiscriminately." That was just tacky and it lacked finesse. "What I am proposing is an alliance between you and us. A chance at molding our fresh young minds with your direction. It would be a beneficial two-way street too, as you lot would be much harder to kill with us and would even get to see the world on te other side. Blue, that DS is just the tip of the mountain in gaming, especially with San Fransokyo on the other side. Bossman, you could collect all the pogs and whatever else you want. Haunter, you could have a partner in striking fear and dastardly deals. Angry bro, you could... work out and be stronger with us. Granted you'd all do it through us but that is a doable work-around. We can help you see and do what you want if we can carry you over, and in exchange we get to know more about your world through you and be abe to survivie better. A win-win situation where either party doesn't need to lose. What do you say? Do we have a deal?" He then offered his hand and an open, quietly encouraging look.
They took the hook and the line but will they take the sinker...?
Ciara seemed a bit put back by Jericha's description of the situation.
"Regardless, I do support this offer if you'd all wish to consider it. Mythos is certainly big enough and we know far too little about it, so teaming up sounds like an excellent way to keep alive. I'm curious, though. On a hypothetical partnership, what would each of you like to be gaining?"
Ciara's question seems to cause some intrigue into the shadows. They each begin discussing what they would like out of a human.
Haunter: "Ho! While I certainly enjoy toying with simple minded people, I couldn't find myself staying with one for too long. Someone witty, with an . . . Experienced past let's say, and of course, they must know how to have fun~"
Puffball: "SOMEONE TOUGH! AND COOL! AND WHO WILL READ MY SCREENPLAYS AND PROVIDE CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM!!!!"
Blue kitty: "Meh, I like everyone, but ı wanna avoid fighting if I can."
Mantis: "I doubt I could enjoy any of you. You humans are such notorious bullies. As if I'd trust you!!"
Metal creature: *Incomprehensible screeches as it walks against walls*
"It seems you and I are of simir minds? Would you like to come with me? You already know a little bit from what you smelled, after all." Migurl offered to the Haunter after hearing all of them and thrn realized that he had the best chance with someone looking for someone of similar mind.
Miguel then looked at the lot with interest before looking in concern at the metal creature. "Uhm by the way, does the metal one wish to go outside or wander around? He seems to be only be walking into walls."
The mantis catches Suzume's attention with it's remark... and the Haunter has long since decided it wasn't goign anywhere with her so time to change things up. "Ugh I know! Just wish they'd get off me and my friend's cases!" She says to the mantis, letting some of the very real disgust they seem to share drip into her tone. "And it's even worse when you give out to them or try get rid off them and their big dumb response is just something so damn STUPID like "You've got a zit right there", seriously these goddamn neandtherthals and then there's the prissy little shits that have a brain and decide to use it to fuck with people like what actually is their problem goddammit!" Suzume rants thenbefore suddenl;y realising what she is doing and becoming very embarrassed. Byakko huffs laughter at Suzume "You have here someone who most certainly does not tolerate the bullies."
The haunter chuckles to itself as Miguel offer's his companionship.
"A silver tongued human? And an experienced one at that. What a wonderful day! Oh I do think you'll be entertaining~. Yes human. I shall join you. As for the metal one . . . I didn't come with him. I have no idea what's happening with him."
The kitty floats listlessly over to Ciara
"Woooooah-You don't fight? Cooooool. Can we watch anime and junk?"
You get the feeling kitty is now your friend. As the kitty talks nonchalantly with Ciara, the Mantis seems surprised.
"A human that doesn't like to fight? Still, I can't trust Meowstic with a human unattended . . . YOU! BAND GEEK! I accept your offer, on the grounds that you assist me in keeping my friend safe"
Miguel looked at the metal creature in concern before taking out one of the tarot cards and then presented it to the Haunter. "If you're perfectly serious about this then... here. Not sure if you call this forming a contract or something, and I feel awkward throwing this at your face so...."
He walked up to the Haunter, and if he didn't look like he would resist then he would gently tap the card on the Haunter's forehead. Not that it was hard to reach given that this was a gigantic ghost. He then waited to see what would happen....

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...
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.
