Jericha grins, and gets into a low position. "Alright! Everybody, get outa the way!" She charges the fluff ball, and tries to get a tight grip around him.
Bind: The user gains a +1 Bonus to Accuracy Rolls made to initiate Grapple Maneuvers, and +2 to Skill Checks made to initiate Grapple Maneuvers or gain Dominance. Whenever the user gains Dominance in a Grapple, the target of the Grapple loses a Tick of Hit Points. AC4 = SgC9igNk1d20+1
Jericha attempts to grab the tiny fuzzball, but because of difficult footing, she ended up missing the puffball entirely. It dashes through her legs, and retaliates with a Karate Chop, dealing 43 physical damage to Jericha

The fuzzball seems somewhat less angry now. In fact, this is probably as close to happy as it can get.
"YOU REALLY ARE A COOL PERSON!!! I WOULD HAPPILLY JOIN YOU MEAT HUMAN!!!!""
With that, you each have gained a new comrade, but metal monster seems to be still in distress. It's no longer saying anything sensible, rather just metallic screeches and ramblings. It's become far more aggressive than it was earlier, and is attacking the walls frantically
"Lairon? Oh god damn it no!"
The Scyther gets into battle position, but doesn't initiate the lairon.
Miguel frowned when the thing -Lairon- started to attack the walls frantically. This... was bad, to say the least. If it turned its aggression to them, they would be in for a fight. He stepped forward, closer to the Lairon but not too close.
"Hey big guy, it's okay. Calm down. If you want out, we can guide you outside. Easy there. Easy." Miguel tried to be as calm and soothing as possible.
"Ah! It's becoming like those violent ones that talk all garbled... Should we fight it off or will that make it worse? Have you got this Miguel?" Suzume looks around for some sign if she should engage or not. Byakko meanwhile is getting ready to do just that, if the plan is made.
Miguel tried his best to avoid the rampaging beast, moving to the side as best he could. In his shock of the action though, he did it far less gracefully than he usually did.
Meanwhile, Zoroark, who had been watching the proceedings the entire time and had been following with the group since he had been released to meet and greet the pretty lady, did not take too kindly to having his person -technically also himself- being bum-rushed so casually, and moved to attack the Lairon while it was distracted by Miguel.
"Move it, Metal Head! He's not yours to pin!" He said as he tried do a pass-by cut with his dark-glowing claws.
OOC: Rolled a 12 on the acrobatics check, and then Zoroark (who had never been dismissed and had been just lurking around this entire time) attacks with Night Slash. 10 on the accuracy roll, as shown in the roll thread.
Miguel fails to avoid the Lairon due to the sudden attack, and he manages to drop Miguel to the ground. Thank's to Ciara, Miguel takes minimal damage *8 Damage*. Miguel finds himself pinned down by probably the heaviest creature he has ever experienced. Luckily for Miguel, Zoroark was quick to react, and managed to knock the Lairon off of him, and dealt some damage.
As the Lairon screeches and rages, you hear a similar, but deeper roar coming form the ceiling. Suddenly, what can best be described as a Land Shark with Linkin Park levels of edge bursts from the ceiling above the Lairon, and crushes it. The two battle for a brief period before the shark's teeth become ablazed with fire, and it sinks into the shadow, dissipating it into nothing.
Mother and Sparrow Nonchalantly drop in behind it
"Well, that was something wasn't it? Are you all ok?"
Jericha pays no attention to what else is going on. She holds her new fluffball in one arm, and pokes him with her blank card. She's not too sure how to get him in there. She then turns around when Mother speaks up. "Yo. What's up?"
For a little bit, Miguel felt like he had been hit by a freight train... okay more like your standard brute off of the streets but still. And this Lairon weighed so damned much that he could hardly breathe... though it made him wonder why a hit from something this heavy didn't feel like said freight train.
Still, he was definitely relieved when he managed to stand up, fully ready to work with Zoroark to pay back that Lairon hard... only to then blink in confusion when the edgelord land shark appears and tears the Lairon up before they do anything else. Well, okay then.
"I'm fine, thank you for asking. That hit didn't hurt as much as it should probably had for something that weighed like a motorcycle." He remarked wryly as he rubbed his chest, all the while ignoring Zoroark's pouting and low-key squinting at the big ass land shark. He then turned around to look at Ciara. "Was that you, by the way? With the glowy light thing that made it hurt less?"

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...
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.

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.
