"My father is a member of the Irish Defense Force Army Ranger Wing, and has been for most of his life. We were transferred here to Japan a year ago, when he was chosen for a joint training exchange effort with the JDF"
She found a tree stump somewhere and sat down, then pulled out her sketchpad and started doodling what she saw around her.
"Since he's special forces, though, there's times when the Fórsaí doesn't tell us what he's up to and generally most of his past ops are pretty hush hush. Lots of anti-terrorism ops across Europe is all I can say"
Just as Miguel was about to take another picture of the enormous tree, a certain beautiful modern day Disney princess and her new entourage decided to photobomb the picture with fairly irritated expressions, ruining the picture. However, he was nonplussed and was more impressed by the fact that she was glaring in tandem with woodland creatures she probably just met as she made an impassioned speech with words that made his eyebrows rise. Totally a Disney princess.
"You really should be more careful with your words, beautiful. Or is it princess now since you're channeling that princess vibe to the point where the animals are mimicking you?" He remarked lightly, but a look in his eyes would easily show that he wasn't really feeling it right now. "But yes, someone might take your words a little too seriously in a way that you won't like. Words aren't candy, y'know?"
He then glanced over at the tree again. "It's not really something I think anyone can fix beyond just getting out of here, anyways." He shrugged. "Just chalk it up to a case of bad memories."
Mother looks off to try and see what Miguel had been glancing at. It was a nice tree she supposed, but somehow she doubted he was just interested in nature
"If this place is causing you this much stress, then we can get out of here for a bit if you need. I can tell Easter and Sparrow to take the reigns. Just let me know what you'd like to do"
Mother starts walking off into the other direction, when she suddenly stops, pauses for a moment, and spins a full 180 roundhouse kick, aiming the heel of her stiletto mere centimeters away from your neck. The dust that rose from under her dissipates, leaving a clean trail in the ground where her heel traced.
"And for he record, I'm so not fragile enough to be called princess. Queen might work, maybe executioner, but no way in hell a princess."
Mother drops her leg and walks off
"Oh, and feel free to tell your friend in the bushes he's more than welcome to join us."
As mother walks away, Miguel receives a text from Kuchi
For the record, I wasn't in any bushes. That would be far too conspicuous
"Hmmm... honestly, I'd just like to walk around and clear my head for a bit." He looked at her thoughtfully as he followed, only to blink in shock and lean back and away when she suddenly went all kung-fu chick on him and tried to roundhouse and snap his neck. Or at least, that what was his instinctual thought right as he dodged away, his eyes sharp, narrowed and calculating as he looked over at her.
At her comment though, he relaxed a tad and offered her a raised eyebrow in lieu of his absent smirk. "You want me to call you Queen? Tell me, Beautiful, do you have a whip to go with that spiky other outfit of yours? It seems to suit you more and more than a stethoscope."
His eyes once again narrowed in thought when she remarked about one of his tails, before bringing out his cellphone and seeing Kuchi's message. ...right. Feel free to join us since you've been spotted. Kuro will remain in the shadows for now. He then put back his phone and followed after her, not quite addressing her last comment for the moment.
"Weapons are for the weak dear boy. I prefer to deal with people hands on~"
As mother walks off to the trail path, she messages Easter to keep an eye on the others while you two are off to clear your heads. The path is nice. The sun is warm and comforting, and accompanied with a gentle breeze to help balance it out. You head out of the more forest parts of the reserve, and start entering more mountains, complete with goats and rams watching as you pass.
"When Easter and I were younger, She'd insist on coming to Dreamland every time we planned a vacation. She hated this trail so much. I don't think because of the theme or quality, but because it took her away from fantasy land. I loved it though. It was the only place I could get her too keep quiet, and have a moment of peace."
Mother keeps walking, but soon you'll see Kuchi following the two of you. He's large, bald, and intimidating, but wearing khaki shorts, a hawaiin shirt, and has a nikon camera hanging from his neck. A part of you might feel a lot of temptation to snap a pic as blackmail in the future.
"So what has to happen in your life to merit being followed by budget JK Simmons here?"
"Guards and knives don't mix well! Also, there's a good chance these might not be entirely legal."
Onlookers are confused by the pursuit as the two of you pass through the trails and animals. Sparrow decides to take a detour through some off trail bushes, and the guard happens to be heavy, and not great at pursuing. You find yourself near a sort of break room far off from the patron area
"Well, that was anti-climactic, but mission accomplished I guess"
Suzume finds that the guard is definitely nowhere nearby.
"Well, not the Balisong in particular, just a minor owning own and brandishing it out in public. Don't worry, the guard will forget about us in like 7 minutes, and we can meet up with the others like nothing happened"
There does seem to be a vending machine inside the employee break room. It's empty, and looks really sad on the inside. When you attempt to open the door, you'll find it's locked
Sparrow steps you asside and pulls out what looks like an extensive multi-tool with a long pick like extension. He plays with the lock for a few seconds before unlocking the door and granting you access to the machine
As Jericha looks upon the majestic dolphins with their . . . majestic attributes, she'll suddenly feel something very heavy climb onto her back. Not heavy enough to drop her or anything, but definitely noticeable. Jericha will notice that Easter has opted to climb piggyback onto her shoulders to look inside the tank
"Wooooooah! Jericha! Are you seeing these guys?! They're like, the fashion models of the sea!"
As for Sparrow and Suzume, Sparrow will cock his head in confusion as he opens his soda
"Why? You seem like a nice enough person, and can even play an instrument. I'd assume you would have been quite popular."

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.
