"Well, it's like Orin said; we're not out for a walk today. Whichever path has more interesting Pokemon, I'm voting for." Shielding her eyes from the few sunbeams coming through the canopy, Jamie looks around for any signs that would give an indicator for pokemon living near the path or in the woods.
2upiO6r34d6+1 Possibly +2 for woods as well as the +1 for body inclination 4d6+1
infomantis One clear sign would be the head of a Sentreet, poking above the waist-high grass, looking back and forth, before ducking back down, and rustling a few meters, and popping back up again. It seemed to be keeping an eye on them. On the right, a ratata was in the middle of the road, skittering back and forth, occasionally ducking into the grass. The woods, as always, where likely chock-full of snakes, but they where silent as ever, a distinct lack of bird-cries in the air.
After studying the environs, Jamie sighed. More snakes, of course. She couldn't wait to get into some actual bug-filled woods, with actual bugs. Probably would want to get a bigger net first. "Well, unless any of you want to beat up some Ekans, right seems like the best option for now." Speedy was watching the Sentret with interest, but with Jamie turning and starting down the path to the right, his gaze moved on to other things.
Skylar seemed to be more interested in the Sentret than his surroundings, as his two older companions began to walk to the right, he waved to the Pokemon before following right behind them. He wasn't paying much attention to the road ahead of him, but he had Scuttle still on the top of his head. "Keep an eye out girl, you got better eyesight than me at the moment~" He said with a small chuckle.

Skylar stood still for a moment, as he felt some sort of sticky web fall on him. His eyes widened a bit, his hands shaking softly as he cautiously touched his braid, before letting out a scream. "OH GOD NO ITS IN MY HAIR, NO NO NO THIS IS NOT OKAY!" He yelled, freaking out as he desperately wiggled around to grab a brush and try and remove it. Poor Scuttle on the other hand was startled as well, and responded by hastily crawling off his head, and fired off her own stringshot in the direction of the attack.
AC 3: ydi9R8Bc1d20
If it hits, spending an AP to use Trickster and perform the Hinder Maneuver. Thanks to trickster, maneuver automatically hits, but the roll off needs to happen.
Orin saw something coming at him but was powerless to do anything about it. The gooey threads struck him, and at first, it seemed like a laughable attack. The impact was light, didn't even cause his footing to stagger, but that turned out to be just the problem. When he tried to turn left and right, Orin's feet felt gummy, like an old movie theatre floor.
"Rook, be ready, at least more than one thin is out there, and they are watching us. I sure they'll show themselves soon enough."
Rook wasn't fond of the string shot either, but at least his hat was still on his head, and he didn't have any fingers to get stuck together either. Should any non team member show itself, Rook had a Fury Cutter locked and loaded, just for them.
If an enemy shows itself, Fury Cutter 7uNUTneA1d20 AC 3 Physical, Bug Damage, crits on 19+ On a hit, 1d8+21 Damage On a crit, add additional 1d8+6 Damage
Jamie recoils from the thread, but reacts too late to dodge and is struck by the sticky strands. This had happened before to her from her previous bug-catching attempts, but the feeling of restriction never got any less bad. At the attack, Speedy immediately jumped off and hit the ground running towards the caterpie before ramming it, dragging the attached Jamie a bit towards the bug as well thanks to the threads.
Speedy is the only one so far to successfully hit the bug, with a damaging attack, the caterpie is still shaken from the surprise it'd receved is knocked off it's tall blade of grass. It'd squeak angrily, it's little body shaking in rage, it tries to tackle speedy in return. IW3JR7Uj1d20 AC 2 1d8+131d20·1d8+13
Scuttle saw one of its kind try to attack the pokemon know as Speedy. Finally, Skylar had gotten his brush and began to undo his braid. "Scuttle, tackle it!" He called out, regaining his composer before brushing his long hair, trying to get the web-like fluid out of it. The bug let out a small battle cry as she ran into the grass to tackle.
Speedy bounces backwards towards Jamie from the impact, and immediately curls up into a chittering defensive ball, trying to keep an eye out for any further attacks. That attack had hit a lot harder than the bug had expected it to, and he wasn't going to faint before the fight was over if he could help it! Defense Curl
Taking over the offensive duties for Speedy, Jamie lobs a Pokeball at the Caterpie before it attacks again. "There's more of them, Orin? Geeze, I liked it more when we could just walk up to the bugs and catch them without any hassle, y'know?"
The caterpie was in no position to move out of the way, nevermind the complex ninjacrobatics required to evade a pokeball from a capture specialist. For a moment, you wonder if the ball acuially was working, after the caterpie was sucked it, it didn't even give a wobble. A few tense seconds later, and you hear the click. Well, that was odd.
Jamie waits a few seconds, alternating between looking around and focusing on the strangely inactive Pokeball. Finally, she untenses a bit and walks forwards to pick up the Pokeball, picking off stray strands of threads as she does so. "So, what was that about more pokemon around here again? I think you might be getting a bit jumpy, the woods aren't all THAT bad you know." Speedy clearly doesn't share her opinion and remains curled up, still looking out for any other sudden attacks.
The woods, as usual, are oddly quiet, like the whole of the woods was holding it's breath. A short ways down the path, was a small field of waist high grass, about 10x10 meters in size, a few sentreet poking about, only visibly by the tops of the heads when they stood on the tails to look about, the grass rustling here and there elsewhere, signs of shorter foraging pokemon.
Skylar finally had finished brushing the last of his hair, the remaining goop was discarded onto the dirt floor. "Right... that's done." He said to himself with a small sigh, as he reached into his pocket for a hairtie. Quickly grabbing the end, he neatly tied it up into a sailor's knot before dusting himself off. "Right, I'm ready to go." He said as he grabbed Scuttle and placed her on his shoulder.
Tazukie The monkey happened to have brought a gift! A berry, the last uneaten survivor of it's latest snack, the pecha was bright and pink.

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...

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.

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.
